Happy birthday, Sam Winchester! Please know that if you belonged to me, you would be spending the day on a tropical island instead of, y'know. Um.
Yesterday: Senior Day! Our class took over an entire IHOP, then had senior speeches (my god, some girls were crying for five hours straight. Tons of fun, let me tell you), then the faculty softball game! Which is stupidly unfair, because two of the faculty are former minor league baseball players who consistently hit the ball over two soccer fields onto either Jermantown Road or Route 123. WHATEVER, FUN TIMES. And then the senior musical that night, Kiss Me Kate - I never knew how many boys could sing! It was a good way to round it all up.
Today was the first day of my senior internship as well. Rather than start off on a normal day, they needed someone to help out with the Flower Mart carnival they cater at the National Cathedral. I worked from 7 this morning until 8 tonight and was standing from 9-6, so my knees HURT, but other than that I had a good time. I'm surprised how many kids my age were there - I know they won't be around during my actual internship in the kitchen, but it was fun for the day.
One of the girls is honestly straight out of a YA novel. She's that quirky, fun, silly sidekick who says anything (and seriously looks exactly like she could be marlisle
's little sister, by the way). Two minutes after she met me, she asked me out for coffee (we were early and the owners hadn't showed up yet), and as we were walking back, she just said, "You're really pretty. Not to be awkward or weird, but I just thought you should know." It was just completely platonic and something a best friend would say, but. No one has ever straight-up told me that, and I can't believe her or anything, but it seriously made my day. She works at their other location, but I really wish we could work together and I really want to get to know her. It was the sweetest thing ever.
MMM SLEEP NOW, FLIST TOMORROW. ♥
