I’m going through all the props right now and what a yes/no would mean for each one. These issues are so important and scary things could happen if people don’t vote a certain way. It actually makes me kinda anxious. All I can say is INFORM YOURSELVES! This will affect all of us, so vote! Encourage your parents to vote too and anyone you know that is 18+. I encourage you guys to really look at the other props other than just 30 and 32 (what all of us college students are familiar with). This is SERIOUS.
This is a picture from Aids Walk last year. I’m so sad I can’t be there today. I’ve gone every year for the past 3 years, so it sucks that I’m not there today :( I will try as hard as I can to go next year. Hopefully I’ll have a car and be licensed by this time next year. I hope everyone who went had a blast, though! Until next year~
Throwin’ it up for the west side.
In some ways, I feel cheated out of Senior Year.
I don’t know. Maybe my hopes were too high. It was fun, but it definitely could have been more exciting. I never really even FELT like a senior in high school. Senior Seminar was ok, but it wasn’t as emotional or ground-breaking as it should have been. I guess my class was just too scared or stubborn to share their feelings. There were some people who really opened up, and I respect the courage it must have taken, but other people didn’t even try to connect with the people in our class. I was always stressed because of Math. It was my choice to take it but why am I being punished because I wanted to take a more challenging class. Whenever people tell me Senior Year was easy, I’m just like…”….Really?” I was always tired. I felt like I had no real friends. I had people to do fun stuff with, but I had no FRIENDS, who I could have fun with my doing absolutely nothing or who I could vent to, or who genuinely liked me for me and not for what I did or could do for them. I didn’t feel like a Senior in Showtime because sometimes people wouldn’t even listen to me and I felt like I was often undermined. LIKE SRSLY. ASB is forever downgrading because of all those lazy people. It just sucks when you try so hard to make your school an awesome place and there’s always someone trying to tear you down. Although it was fun, I feel like we got cheated a lot. I feel like we were a test run. They were always trying new stuff on us and saying “I know seniors usually do this, but this year, let’s change that and make it extremely boring and stressful for you.” Ugh. It really sucks. & now, the class of 2013 seems so much more spirited, they look like they’re having a lot more fun, and their gradnight is at Disneyland. I’m happy for them, but I’m a little sad that my Senior Year wasn’t great. It was like any other year when it should have been something special. I even had more fun at my Junior Prom than my Senior Prom. wow. There were some good times too, but nothing amazing. I wish I could have looked at my senior year as the best year of my high school career, but I just can’t.
Prom 2012. Best night I’ve had in a while.
Glee first aired when I was a Freshman in High School.
& now they are graduating in the show at the same time that I am graduating.
COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT.
So at my school, Grad Night is held at a surprise location “for the safety of our grads.” The past two years, it has been at Dave & Busters. Doesn’t having it at Dave Buster’s twice kind of eliminate the surprise aspect? I’ve been hearing rumors that it might be there again. I’M TELLING Y’ALL, IF IT IS AT DAVE & BUSTERS AGAIN I WILL GO APE SHXT! It’s not even the fact that it’s at Dave & Busters, but that I’m paying $100 for it to be at Dave & Busters. I’m being cheap, but you would be too. I might as well be going to Disneyland or Six Flags for $100. hmmmmphhhh. I guess that’s not as bad as when the class of 2009 paid that much for it to be at school. I feel like who ever plans grad night wants to see us suffer. ughh. I’m gonna go regardless of these rumors, because Grad Night is not something that I would wanna miss, but I’m just saying, I will be upset if it’s there. I’ll still have fun, dance, & get buckwild, but deep down, I’ll be pissed. lulz. okay, that’s my rant on gradnight~
A different kind of March Madness.
Everybody is getting college acceptance letters! I’m really happy for everyone that is getting into their dream schools. I just can’t wait until I hear back from UCSB (supposed to hear back next week). It’s really crazy to know that we’re all gonna be doin’ our own things real soon. 94 days until Mayfair’s class of 2012 graduates!

On 27 January 2011, H&M announced through its official Twitter account that there will be online shopping available to USA customers at the turn of 2011/2012.
At least one good thing will happen in 2012. I CAN’T WAIT!
I will just say that senior seminar was an awesome experience & I will never forget it. I got to connect with my class on a different level that I never imagined. Enough said.
The class of 2012 is about to be super close this year. Even though some of ya’ll can be annoying, I’m so glad to be apart of such a great, talented, special class.
