Ok so this post serves one simple function: to ensure that the first livejournal post of mine that Dustin reads isn't totally embarrassing.

Prom was last night. It was wonderful. I went with Zach Vanderburg. He's so sweet. He came and picked me up, then we went to his parents' house and had orderves, then we went to Gardner-Webb University with his parent and took pictures in the loveliness of the campus. From there Zach and I went to the Victorian Rose and had our pictures taken professionally (they were disappointingly mediocre). We finished that at about 7:25, and our dinner reservations weren't until 8:00, so we just drove around and talked, took a few farewell pictures of the school and a bunch of very candid action shots of ourselves while driving, and walked around uptown Shelby for a few minutes. Then we went to dinner at 5 East, which was a lot of fun. He ordered for me, which was a little odd, but really sweet. We laughed so hard, made people stare, it was great. After dinner, we walked around the town square, and then went to the prom at about 9:00. It was so much fun. When we first got there, it was still pretty empty, and there was just a little group of about ten people dancing, so that was kind of awkward, but once some more people arrived it was really fun. I tried to tone down my crazy dance moves from Governor's School (didn't want to embarrass myself or my date). I did dance, though, and it was a lot of fun. We slow danced for two songs, which was really nice. Mr. and Mrs. Borders started dancing, and it was so cute! I love them. We left at about 11:45 to avoid some of the traffic and went to Zach's house to change. We ended up staying at Zach's house for over an hour because we were waiting on Jonathon Jordon to come and meet us. Apparently he had some trouble with the people he came to prom with, so he was going to come to Zach's house and then ride with us to the party at Nicole's house. Then he called after over an hour and said to meet him at Hardees. It was really nice hanging out with his parents, though. We watched America's Funniest Home Videos and told them all about prom. Anyway, we went to Nicole's house and watching Halloween H20. Of course we just made fun of it, but it was still pretty scary (I'm a wimp), so we watched about 30 minutes of Anchorman afterward. We had to leave her house at 4:00, and Zach took me home. We took more pictures of ourselves in the car on the way home. I had so much fun, I'm going to post some pictures at some time. Alright, well that's enough for one post. See you guys!

I'm finally done with all of my AP Exams. Gov wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be, and I think I did pretty well.

We're putting the finishing touches on Scribbles (the literary magazine). Ramsey asked me to write the dedication to Mr. Harris, and it's really stupid. I wrote it in about 2 minutes. We've been staying after school every day this week to get it done. I'm really going to miss Ramsey. She's the only real hippie I know! The last issue of the newspaper is going to print soon, so I really have to get to work on that. This is the senior issue, and there are only three seniors on staff. I have a really intense headache. I've had it since yesterday afternoon and I don't know what to do to get rid of it. Maybe the soothing sounds of some organ music... What do you say, Kenneth?

This guy won't leave me alone. He follows me everywhere, like a puppy who sings rap songs and wears mirrored sunglasses.

OH, speaking of creepy guys annoying the hell out of me, Creepy Old Guy has stopped calling me! He hasn't called me in over a month. I thought he would surely call me on my birthday, but he didn't! I think that's a pretty good indicator that this little "relationship" is over. Can it really be this easy? Now watch, I'm going to come home one night and he'll be sitting in the dark, smoking a cigarette, waiting for me. Heh, maybe I've just gotten too old for him now that I've turned 18. I shouldn't say such things...

Believe it or not, that made me feel a lot better. They say laughter is the best medicine -- no way, avoiding creepy old men who call you obsessively and imply that you're the only thing keeping them from killing themselves is a much better medicine! I should write a card for Halmark...

"Sorry to hear about your illness"
Inside:
"But at least your sister's ex-boyfriend who is more than twice your age has stopped harassing you. And you didn't even have to change your phone number! Get well soon."

Okay, Clewell Crew, it's time to start making some plans for the summer. The Alumni Day date for 2006 has not been posted yet (I haven't been able to find it, anyway), but last year's Alumni Day was on July 9th. According to the calendar on the GS website, this year's break will be July 8-11 (doesn't it seem odd that the break isn't on July 4th?), and the last day is July 29th. I'm going to be in Europe July 12-20, so I'll probably miss it. However, we are all definitely going to get together this summer. I'm determined to make it happen! As I mentioned, I'll be gone July 12-20. My mother also wants to drive across the country (groan) to visit my brother in Arizona and some relatives of hers that I've never met in New Mexico, then up to Colorado to see my grandparents and a few aunts and cousins and what-not. My mother's a horrible driver - she's old, slow when she should be fast (on the highway, for example), fast when she should be slow (curvy roads, in the rain, etc.), and easily distracted. It's not a good combination, and can be quite terrifying. We'll be gone about 3 weeks, probably, but I don't think that will be too much of a hindrance. My mother should be flexible with the dates of this grand pilgrimage. It would be helpful to have a general idea of when you would all like to get together. I know that Graham will be in England the first two weeks of July (eating plum pudding, I'm sure), and he's going to Maine for a few weeks in August for a string quartet camp, because that's not lame at all. So maybe sometime late July? We don't all have to be on the exact same schedule, we can meet up at different times and in different places. So just let me know, and talk to anyone who doesn't read this (if they don't read this, they're not cool enough anyway!) - Bonnie, Graham, Julia, etc. I'll talk to Serena and Zach Vanderburg at school. Let's make it happen guys!

Last night I went to see the Mark Wood concert. It was amazing! I got his autograph and took a picture with him! All the songs were so exciting and really surprising. I never knew you could make sounds like that with a violin. His violin was, by the way, the coolest thing ever! The Viper! I literally bruised my hand clapping, because I'm a loser, and because I was sitting next to Mark Houser, and he's a loser too. We were really getting into it, and at one point I looked around and noticed that Mark and I were the only two people still clapping or tapping our feet or getting in to the performance at all. In the last song, Mark Wood told the audience to stand up and dance, and Mark (Houser) and I were the only two people dancing. Mr. Strickland, my orchestra director, was in the row behind us, so he probably thinks I'm a complete idiot now, but that's okay, because it was wonderful. After the concert he went out into the lobby to sign autographs, so I got him to sign one for me and one for Ann Marie. I also took a picture with him. I was wearing my Beatles shirt, and when I asked for a picture he said "I love that shirt! Where can I get one like that?" I'm so in love! The Shelby Daily Liar has a video montage-type thing on their website, so can see him there. They called him the violin master, which made me really happy, but the video really sucks. The quality is pretty poor, and they didn't show a lot of the really cool stuff, like the kid clog dancing in the Hodown piece, or Mark's little Elvis-ish dance, and they just played the very end of Elanor Rigby. You can find some better clips and stuff at his website, markwoodmusic.com, or go to woodviolins.com to find out more about his instruments (the Cobra Cello is really awesome).

Ah, first sunburn of the season...

I also burned my toast.

I'm skipping zero period. I'll teach Mrs. Altman to try to censor my marijuana article! Actually, I just overslept, but I am quite offended that she wants to limit my article - my opinion article - about whether marijuana should be legalized (my position is that it should be). Altman seems to think that this topic is more taboo that gay marriage, abortion, evolution, and the death penalty, all of which have been written about (mostly by me) and published without problem. Now she's telling me to "be careful" - as if I'm usually reckless with my articles? please! - and to limit my pro position to medical purposes only. I'm not going to lie to the students of Crest High School (you can lie to God but not to the Devil?)!

So, Mark Wood is coming tomorrow! I'm so excited! Shelby High paid for him to come and talk to the orchestra classes, and they invited the orchestra students from the other high schools in the county to come. He's going to play and talk and it's going to be magical. I have no idea what to wear. I don't want to wear just jeans and t-shirt and look unprofessional - but, come on, he's a rock star!

He looks like he just got down playing with AC/DC. I don't know. I really can't wait! Strickland says we might even get to talk to him! I'm so excited!

Wow, this is getting really pathetic, even for me. Still, this guy is a big deal. He's going to be performing a concert tomorrow evening with the Shelby orchestra and four people from our school (Lucy on viola, Emily and Jordan on cello, and Hailey on bass). Oh, this is so huge for me :)



I don't know where my mother is, and it's getting late. I hate worrying all the time...

Okay, I don't care what political party/ideology you subscribe to, this is just funny:
Go to Google.com, type in "failure" and click the 'I'm feeling lucky' option. Really great.

1. Reply with your name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of jello to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.

(I'm still waiting for you to answer all of these about me, Max.)

Church recruitment technique of the day: "Religion will send you to Hell. Only Jesus Christ can save you."

- brought to you by the Crestview Baptist Church sign


Usually I let these things speak for themselves, but I have a comment on this one that I just can't keep from sharing. Why would anyone ever go to this church? I mean, even if you're the type that could be so easily influenced by signs you read on the side of the road, and you really believed that Jesus is the only path to salvation, why would you ever attend a religious establishment that promised you eternal damnation for being involved with that religion? And, furthermore, if I had been a member at this church, I don't think I could bring myself to ever set foot inside of it again. Either they're stupid hypocrites, or you'll automatically go to Hell. Does this make sense to anyone?

I'm back online! Woo!

I sent in my tuition deposit for UNCA today. I also had to select my first and second choice for dorms. I was stuck between Mills and Founders Halls, but I decided to make Founders my first choice because in Elementary school we had an evil science teacher, and her name was Mrs. Mills. We only had one science teacher, and she would come to "teach" a science lesson in each classroom a few times a week. He first name was Muriel, but she pronounced it with only two syllables - Mer-uhl. Oh, she was pure evil.

Okay, so I have a ton of work to do on my interest group project for AP Gov & Politics. I'm pretty sure I'm screwed. I have to find money trails linking politicians and PACs to the timber industry, and to be frank, I have very little idea what I'm doing. Oh well, failing seems to be one thing I'm always good at.

Oh, and in case any of you were wondering, Zach Vanderburg = best prom date EVER.

You know, friends, I really am losing my mind. Just now I was at the computer, just chillin', keeping it real (word), and the computer froze. I restarted it, and while it was rebooting I put the kettle on the stove to make some tea. I returned to the computer and resumed my activities. Soon, I began to hear a faint noise. Some might call it a "whistle." I was baffled. I decided it must be a fiction of my imagine - a mere auditory illusion caused by the hum of the computer tower. The noise began to grow louder, however, and I began to grow more confused. I began to search the house for the source of the odd noise. It wasn't long before I realized that it was the kettle, one hand in the air, the other it's hip, shouting "TIP ME OVER AND POUR ME OUT!!"

I am a senile old fool.

Now, my dear friends, I've always been forgetful, but today I realized that I am becoming prematurely senile. I came to the realization that I am more than merely absent-minded as Mom, Debbie, and I all began to share stories of similar incidents. I am 17, Debbie, my half-sister, is 37, and my mother is 57, and yet we all seem to be slipping into dementia at the same time. If this trend continues, my child should be senile 2 years and 3 months before conception.

I would like to point out that my grandmother, who will be 81 next month, is as mentally sound as ever. My 34-year-old half-brother, Ted, has never shown any symptoms, and neither has my 19-year-old sister, Ann. I suspect that this presenile dementia trait was set to skip a generation, but, due to its own forgetful nature, lost count somewhere along the way.
