so let me just take a moment to scream over the fact that duke invited me to the black student alliance invitational and blue devil days,AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
okay. um, i know that it's not a guaranteed in or anything, but in the brochure itself it says that i'm an excellent candidate for acceptance, etc. etc. so i'm allowing myself a tiny glimmer of hope. it's kind of nice to know that busting my ass over grades, being frustrated over our school system, and all that might've been worth it. but sadly i can't attend BSAI because i have a convention to go to and as president i'm obligated to be there lakdsjfldkfj. plus, our sponsors' disappointment would probably kill me. :( and john legend will be at BSAI so that's like rubbing salt in the wound. :( :(
anyway, i have the ridiculous task of reading ~10 books before the AP test because my english teacher gave us a practice essay and i hadn't read any of the books on this list and that cannot happen on the actual AP test or i will probably burst into tears. i recognized a lot of the books by name but they'd never been assigned to me, and i hadn't read them on my own because i figured one of my teachers would eventually make me read it. i guess not. :| so right now i'm reading moby dick, i need to read 1984, the red badge of courage, paradise lost, etc.
oh, and i bought this beautiful thing last weekend, but i have no pictures of it, so.
it's basically this huge collection of different sketchbooks with an emphasis on graffiti artists and hnnnngh it is gawjus. ♥
well worth the money i spent on it, and i still haven't made it all the way through. it kind of makes me want to take up art again.
ETA: by the way gogoparty
your card is coming, i just haven't gotten the stamps and shit. :( and it will clearly be a valentine's day/st. patrick's day card because what is sending things promptly.
