This morning I woke up around 8:30 and got straight to work studying for my AP enviro test, which is on Tuesday. I have been convincing myself that I don’t care how I do, because I really haven’t felt like studying. We took three practice tests (just the multiple choice sections) in school and I got a 4/5 and a 5 on the first two. Then I got a 3 on the most recently released test and it scared me a bit. Even though the test doesn’t technically matter, at least not at all for my class grade, I still hope I do well. So I bought an AP achiever and tried to take notes from that as review. I read 80 pages so far today. Now I feel like I can’t do anymore. But, while trying to avoid studying I was really productive. I did my math and enviro homework, did laundry, cleaned the house, wrote in my journal, and found a super cool application. It’s called poladroid. You can upload it from this. website. Then it works like a polaroid camera, you feed it files and it gives you polaroid version of your pictures. It’s pretty neat.

I did a few pictures with it, and more are on my Flickr.

Today my enviro teacher told us that she would be checking our binders this Friday to make sure they are all in order before the AP test. She said that all the material needed to be organized by topic. The whole year I kept my stuff in order, but I had organized it by type (tests and quizzes, labs, notes, etc.). So, this afternoon I took it all out of my binder, spread it out across my bed and floor and sifted through it, divided it, and put it back into the binder. I don’t think I can explain how much stuff I accumulated this year. It felt so good to get it done. I love feeling things are in place and tidy…that’s why I clean my room so much.
My friend Sarah and her parents picked me up around 6:50pm and we went over to the high school for a paper reading. All the proceeds from donations went to an orphanage program in Ethiopia. The papers/poems that the students read were amazing. If I had to I pick a favorite I would pick this girl Sophie’s. She wrote a poem that told the story of a girl and boy’s friendship. The poem started when they were really young, and then developed into chronicling how their relationship decayed. Basically she wanted to grow up and explore life faster than he did. Her descriptions of the two people were so rich and intricate. I really loved it. Her style actually reminded me of Nicole Krauss’s in her book The History of Love. I read it last year, and again this year. I am absolutely in love with it. If you haven’t read it, go read it, if you have, read it again because it is just that amazing! About a month ago I actually found out that it is being made into a movie that will be released in 2010. I’m not sure how I feel about that because I love it so much. Of course I am going to see it, how could I not? But I’m scared that it will be totally different and I will be upset. I was reading something about it online tonight and saw this quote: “It’s a book that requires real tenderness without being overly sentimental, and that is something Alfonso (the directer) does very well.” So I have some faith. Haha.
Also, I got an e-mail today saying the new PostSecret book is coming out soon and is already on amazon for pre-odering. I don’t think I am going to get it, at least not yet. My reasoning for that is: 1) I want to save money and 2) that I sort of love reading them in bookstores and Urban Outfitters more than I liked having them at home.

How beautiful (by the way I can pretty much only spell that word because of Bruce Almighty) is this picture???

Also I was looking around the Free People website and I found this dress. I think it is so pretty!
