Hello Internet! I have been gone for... 8 days! So, where have I been, where have I been...
WHERE JEN HAS BEEN FOR THE PAST 8 DAYS AND WAS TOO
- Phil's house. I practically live there now.
- Tumblr! Yes. Tumblr. Well you know how you can get posts featured and stuff? Well, I posted a Slyvia Plath poem, and it got featured in Lit, and it has about 140 likes/reblogs now. Yeah, no big deal.
- School*... duh.
- *correction. It's review week at school, which means the last week of being in the classroom. Next week is exams, graduation, and the beloved trip to a certain amusement park. And I'm pretty sad. 8th grade is almost over. I'm leaving the school I've gone to since I was 7. Holy telephone booth.
- Memorial day parade... it got rained out, so it was in the local high school's gym instead. Key words: sauna with American flag visors.
That's about it. The reason this post is called Sentimentality is because... 8th grade is practically over. Middle school is practically over. An era of my life is ending. Foh realszies. I mean, I'm leaving my school. That's like, moving to the other side of the country or something.
Speaking of the other side of the country, I really want to go to California. It seems awesomesauce, minus the Arnold Schwarzenegger-love child scandal. And the Charlie Sheen scandal. And the Chris Brown scandal. And the Miley Cyrus-- oh shut up Jen.
But anyways, I really want to go to California. I've only been there twice, as a little wee one, and the only place I went to was Frezno so I've decided the whole trip doesn't really count.
The arrow is pointing at San Francisco, a city I've always wanted to go to after seeing the Princess Diaries when I was little, and ever since seeing My Name is Khan a couple months ago. Lesson learned: Bollywood trumps Hollywood.
But as I was saying, Sentimentality. To be frank, this school year wasn't amazing... it was just weird. Just really, really weird. Some crazy stuff went down this year that was so unpredictable... in which I chronicilized it in its very own Moleskin knockoff. As soon as school ends I'm going to collaborate with my friends and we're going to create The Epic Timeline of Stuff That Happened This Year. And it shall be a blog post!
If you guys want another blog post about Sentimentality, I was pretty bored and Sentimental this weekend so I wrote an insanely long post titled "the story of my first stall-bawl." Looking back, it's really just me dry heaving over a bunch of nothingness (the writing in the post is dry heaving, not me stall bawling), but if you need some summer reading material, just say the word.
So yeah, I'll try to post again before graduation. Soon you guys will know all the crazy stuff that happened this year. Seriously. It's better than a Sarah Dessen novel.
Are you guys excited or sad or both or [insert emotion here] for school to end? What do you think about traveling to California? If you could go get pizza with any author, who would it be and why?
