There is no such thing as ‘tears of happiness.’ We cry not because we are upset, but because unpleasant feelings are stirred up inside us at the occasion of a happy ending.
We cry at the endings of happy movies because they conjure up an idealized world of kindness and love that we once, as children, believed possible. Children don’t usually cry because are not yet disillusioned about their own possibilities.
When we cry at weddings, graduations, bar/bat mitzvahs because of our own repressed anxieties about the past (why wasn’t my wedding as joyous?) insecurities about the present (why haven’t I found my true love like the bride and groom have?) and fear about the feature (how will I survive when my children leave the nest?).
So there you go, we cry for ourselves at happy endings. Thats actually really depressing.
Freshmen: find your place guys. halls and courtyard are not all that great spots. too trafficky and you’ll be bound to get yelled at.
Sophomores: eh whatever, i have no major problems.
Juniors: It’s AP American Literature or APAL. You guys do not have AP English please stop calling that you’re annoying a bunch of seniors. APENG is a senior course at OHS.
Odd: FitNWell, AP Gov, TA
Even: Physics, English, AP Cal
i am satisfied.
What did i do this summer?
Everything i could have ever wanted out of a summer. I finally was able to find a job, i’m learning how to drive, i saw my friends more than any other summer, and i can never forget the times i had with my babe. Sure towards the end there were a couple of let downs and disappointments, but i can’t stay mad over that crap. there is no point. i really did miss seeing everyone though. call me crazy but i miss being productive and using my brain. it’s worth much more than mindlessly scanning back and forth between tumblr facebook youtube and such. like the other day i was able to finish three pages worth of essay while talking to three people on aim within 2 and a half hours. freakin’ emily this summer, learned a lot from her. also got back in touch with a few other friends. devin and i caught up in supernatural. and cousins and i really upped our game in melee. oh and the yoo bros. austin is going down. summer homework wasnt too bad this year either. everything was pretty simple and didnt ahve too many arduous tasks to accomplish.
Alright let’s begin senior year! I’m beginning a video project that will document change throughout the whole school year. Please don’t be surprised if i ask you to say a few words to me and my camera. hm… i still don’t know my schedule thanks to communicado being scrapped. but i didnt get a call or anything regarding schedule complications/changes or classes being too full, so i’m assuming i got my TAPE schedule+APs. whew. last stretch. i kinda don’t want it to end, but at the same time i want to experience the struggle to adulthood. i stand here at the precipice, the beginning of the final frontier. what do you call this? it’s like the moment before you unwrap the foil to the tasty burrito inside. idk. sorry for not being eloquent about it. but really, i’ve waited for this my whole life and i don’t know what to say. i guess i’ll just dive right in, do my best, and be myself. i’ll see you guys on the other side.
i can officially say.. I’M DONE WITH AP BIO SUMMER HW! :D WHOOOOOOOOO, TIME TO PARTAAAAAY!
…by myself because everyone else is trying to finish their own hw LMFAO. :): ahahahah.
i’ll celebrate with you! b/c i dont have any ap bio to do either1!!!! WOOOO
