hey there, 18.

weird right? today's my birthday, and I'm 18! not to mention I have 2 days of high school left! and let me tell you, this week has been beyond crazy.

First of all, as much as I enjoy photography, I wish I wouldn't have take advanced photography this semester... I've been so busy that I haven't learned anything in there. not at all because of the teacher (she's the best teacher ever) but because I have too much going on. My final project is due monday, and I didn't start working on it until thursday. and when I went in after school to work on it, my computer completely crashed. (yes I cried). but, after 45 minutes of transferring pictures, it turned out ok... but still. 

Thursday I also took the AP English test, and Friday was AP Stats... stats? not too bad, I think I may have possibly passed it. English? lets just say I completely forgot how to write an essay. no bueno.

What else? My AP History teacher is better than yours. We had a study session which included pizza, pepsi, and 2 hours of AP multiple choice questions. TWO HOURS AFTER SCHOOL ON A FRIDAY. but definitely worth it!

Maybe I'll explain something real fast... because this week was seriously the most stressful week of my life (for multiple reasons) and I was freaking out about most everything, I've sorta given up on my appearance. thus explaining the lack of pictures, right?!? I mean, friday I seriously wore yoga pants to school (and the ap test, and after school... including to the movies...)

then last night I went to The Great Gatsby with Katie, Kelly, Kym, Kelsey, and Sam to celebrate my birthday (and of course just watch the movie...)! After the movie, Katie and I had a nice little catch up chat until midnight! (we haven't really hung out since the day of prom!!) Indeed a great night(:

I loved it! absolutely loved it! I will be watching it many many many times. It followed the book so well (which also made it really heartbreaking to watch, and good-reason for being pg-13). One of the first movies I think truly works well with the book!

Well, sadly I have an ENORMOUS amount of homework that I have to do (happy birthday to me!) which will mean sitting and home and studying all day :/
