Well.. Prom was this weekend.
It didn't go exactly as planned.
My mom was stressing me the heck out, and it was very humid. Overall, I was pretty grumpy through the whole event, which then just made me feel like I was ruining my date's night, which in turn made me sad. I just didn't feel pretty at all at the dance, and I know that's something pretty lame to get upset over, but it's hard to have fun when you're feeling all anxious and self-conscious. On a positive note, the night ended pretty well. I just wish I could have started off the day better so that I would have taken cute pictures with my friends (left the picture-taking portion as early as possible bc of anxiety sigh) and had a better time at the event, but in the end, it was still pretty okay. My date was the one good thing about prom and I am grateful for at least that.

Today was also pretty great, definitely a high-ranking Monday. I applied for a scholarship a couple of months ago, and while I totally thought I would get it, the winners were supposed to be announced by May 10th. I spent the last week slowly coming to the realization that I just didn't get it or maybe that they hadn't received my paperwork, but then today I got the letter saying that I had won it! There were many high fives between me and myself. Also, I made it into the finalists for Student of the Year at my school, which is pretty dumb considering I've only been there for 2 of the 4 years. Hehehe, I guess I'm just quite the gem **hair flip**. I don't think I'll wind up winning (being as not too many of the teachers know me), but it was still good news to receive for a Monday.
The best news is that I apparently only have 10 days of school left. Other upcoming events: bff's bday, another choir concert, photoshoot, and I'm going to see Poltergeist this weekend! Whoo!! Fingers crossed for fun and sunshine.
