emma; only girl in the world

hodgepodge of things (I finally used that word)

PAASCU finally came to the school. Now we can breathe. Honestly, the tension was so high when you climbed the stairs -- they were hanging out in the Little Theater, complete with a waiter and runners to satisfy their whims -- because we had to be silent because our noise might disturb them. In fact, a pin drop could probably send them into a psychotic rampage! They might not acredit us.

Like I really care. I like my school, that's for sure, but sometimes, they can be a little too pretentious. We do know how to behave. We don't need to be scared or threatened. We just need to be told. It was like walking through a minefield. One little mistake and you're out -- or expulsed, as I am now teased for.

Today wasn't so bad. I might be watching Imelda later. Apparently, it's a pretty good film. The thing is The OC is on too. This might not seem like a vital decision for a lot of people, but I guess I'm really weird. There a decisions that have to be made.

I'm just so glad there are no classes tomorrow. That way, I finally have time to make that crazy ADMU essay. I've been putting it off for forever and now I really have to do it. I have the time and I have no more excuses. Besides, the deadline is drawing really near too. Just a week away and I'll be over and done with the UPCAT. I have to do good.

And still, despite all the stupidity that's been happening to me recently, I have to say that I'm still quite happy. Just the thought of last weekend makes me want to smile. Really shallow, I tell myself sometimes. But I think I need some shallowness now and then. Life is too short to dwell on the sad, negative stuff. I want to be happy and now I think I'm starting to be.

Thank you for making me smile.
