“Happy birthday to me Happy birthday to me AP Microecon final in seven hours, And a take-home bio exam due, too.” :’D I barely woke up to do my homework a few minutes ago; my mom tried to wake me up earlier, but she had a documentary about volcanoes on and so I sleepily replied to her that I was getting the answers to my bio test through osmosis. “Like Freud…...

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MY CALC FINAL
I was so desperate. Pulled from the deep recesses of my mind and still could only answer 85% of the questions… some of which was only partially done. I did (some) of the extra credit, and I need to get an 86% to maintain my “A” in the class, but… I don’t think the odds are in my favor. In an attempt to appease my professor (who’s usually someone with a good...

I practiced driving with my dad today (instead of help my mom clean). I can now do u-turns, sharp turns, and basically all turns in general without giving dad (and myself) a heart attack AND without pissing off the drivers behind me because I went so slow they’re now caught with a red light. Yay I’m so proud of me.
I suppose I’ll have to add the force of gravity to my list of enemies.– Lemony Snicket, The Penultimate Peril (via kerryquotesquotes)
With one sister married, one sister vacationing in the Philippines, and my dad at work, it’s just my mom and I in the house tonight. It’s pleasantly empty and yet disturbingly quiet. Time to sing Albert Hammond’s “Eres Toda Una Mujer” to myself.
I finally finished my valedictorian speech. I read it to my principal and senior adviser, and they said that for any other student, it would be an “A” speech, but a “B-” on the Sarah scale. I totally agree. There’s something I want to say in my speech to make it “ME” but I don’t know what it is I want to say…. If any of you could read it over...
