"It was you! You did this to me!"

Now that I'm looking back on it, today was actually pretty evenful compared to my usual days.

It was picture day today.  I'm not too fond of picture day.  We take them in a dark auditorium, and there are tons of people just staring at you as you take them.  Senior year your pictures don't go in the yearbook because you get to turn in senior pictures, but we still had to take them for school records or something.  Needless to say, I did nothing for the picture, and I'm sure it turned out horribly.  I am wearing one of my awesome Hunger Games shirts though.

Remember that paper I mentioned that we were writing for English?  We peer edited it today.  This has done nothing but make me even more nervous about the paper.  I don't feel like mine is good at all.  I really hope that this is just me panicking over nothing.

At lunch today, Haley was going on about how she's been absolutely obsessed with Disney movies lately, and she has no idea what caused it.  She started trying to think of why this is.  Suddenly, she stood up, pointed at me, and said very loudly, "It was you!  You did this to me!"  I burst into laughter as she kept on going saying stuff like, "I watched your video about Disney!  This is all your fault!  I'll never forgive you!"  It was absolutely hilarious.  I can't even begin to describe how awesome her reaction was.

During government everyone started to smell something, which we eventually figured out was freshly popped popcorn.  It turns out that the guidance counselor was popping popcorn over in the concession stand, which is next door to the government classroom.  I was absolutely starving at this point because it was the end of the day and I hadn't eaten much lunch as it was particularly disgusting today.  We had to smell this popcorn popping for at least half and hour before the guidance counselor came into the room carrying a decently sized bag of popcorn.  He said that it was unfair for us to have to smell it popping and not get some.  As soon as he sat the bag down on a desk, at least half the classroom, including me, ran up to get some.  Usually I don't think of my school as being that great, but it's moments like this that make me realize it's actually pretty decent.  I'm not sure how many schools have a guidance counselor that would just come in and give the kids popcorn.  There are advantages to attending a small school.

After school Ji and I decided that we were going to work on selling ads for the yearbook.  Everyone in the class is assigned certain businesses that they have to go to.  For some reason my sister Regina decided to tag along.  I'll admit she was helpful though because she helped us find this daycare that Ji and I had never heard of before in our lives.  It went pretty quickly, but the fact that it was so hot made it drag on a bit.  We couldn't turn the air-conditioning in Ji's car up that much because she was low on gas, and it was a hundred degrees.  At one point the thing on Ji's car said it was even a hundred and three degrees.  I thought I was going to die in that car.  I was so thankful for air-conditioning when I got back home.  I can't wait for it to cool down.  Regina's 16th birthday party is tomorrow, and it's supposed to be ninety-nine degrees.

One last little thing:  I watched some bats fly around earlier this evening.  This is pretty irrelevant, but I wanted to mention how awesome bats are.  When I'm thinking about my favorite animals, bats don't usually come to mind, but when I do think of them, they definitely deserve to be one of my favorite animals.  I love watching them fly around.  They are just cool.
