I had to go to our school district's board meeting tonight to be honored for this award that makes me feel snooty and pretentious and elitist.

The thing itself was awful, but it was cool because: a) all of the other people honored for the same thing are my friends, and most of them close friends, b) I met this teacher that I never had, who read my livejournal randomly and had this whole conversation about it.

I keep a livejournal that is meant to be read by my friends. Back in 8th and 9th grade it was all the rage, and we used to all post a million times a day. Now, the few of us that still write it only update every so often, and only when we're feeling emo/angsty/stressed/weird.

I wrote about how high school is ending soon and I absolutely can't enjoy myself in the last months. Even though we won't be graduating until June, and there's still next summer before we all go our separate ways, it makes me incredibly sad and I can't deal with leaving everyone I love, and the town I grew up in and have grown to love. The thought makes me cry every time.

Anyway, sorry to be so emo and rant-y! Here's what I wore to said ceremony:

Dress, made by me.
Cardigan, used to be mom's.
Shoes, Payless.
Belt, Thrifted (SA)

Hurrah for Award-winning April! Did you get a blue ribbon for AWESOMENESS? My heart goes out to you about leaving your friends. But you guys have a million ways to stay in touch, so I'm sure you will.
