||Ani Difranco - Good, Bad, Ugly
it is good, good to be back home. how i missed this time zone
strangers are exciting, their mystery never ends, but there's nothing like looking at your own history in the faces of your friends
my day was goodbadugly.
good was my GRADES! i got grades back for MOST of my classes and dig on this biatch:
*english...95 on the essay, 95 on the test...90.2 in the class!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSS!
*biology...99 on the fucking final, boo yah! hinchey wanted to know if i was interested in honors bio. the answer of course was yes, but i told her how i already got kicked out for not being a freshman.
*math...89 on the final!! yayayayayay better than i expected, and it raised me to an 88.2 in the class, which isn't an A, but is still ok by me!! :-D
*french...95 in the class. i can't believe i got an A on the oral final...despite my chronic "car" mishaps!
unless i got a B in orchestra, i'm pretty happy pappy. :-D
and it's bad, to have eyes like neon signs
flashing open open open open open open open open
open all the time
and it's bad, that i wrapped you in a fantasy, and i carry you with me
but lately it seems like everybody's joined at the hip, and i'm still fancy
i'm so fancy, fancy free...
bad was...it was a long day. a long, long day. oh and super-DUPER bad is we're starting swimming in gym tomorrow. i fucking HATE swimming in gym. hate it. loathe it. i've been going around all year telling people how i was going to get out of it, but they totally sprung it on us. bitches. i think i'm already getting sick...last thing i need is a 3-week dose of fresh ball-water.
bad is also Great Expectations for english. gag me.
bad was also track which was also good. but running HURT ahhhh!! but not as bad as i expected?? we ran like 2 miles...if i can get through the next two weeks, i think i'll be okay. plus it was just uber good to be back with everybody again! i'm really excited for the season. except we have a meet on valentine's day, WTF?!?!?! don't they know people have THINGS to do, PEOPLE to see?!?!?! (or switch those, maybe...JK!!!!) i'll live, i guess.
sometimes the beauty is easy, sometimes you don't have to try at all
sometimes you can hear the wind blow in a handshake
sometimes there's poetry written right on the bathroom wall...
ugly was today i did something i haven't done in a long time which is be really Awkward. you see, emily used to be really Awkward. for a long time. and recently emily has gotten over being Awkward. or so she thought.
i could have been worse, but basically i got all shy and tongue-tied a few too many times today, in front of new teachers, and this one really cute boy...
[get over it. get over it. get over
him it.] in other news, i'm also excited for literary magazine! i'm not the only newbie, so rock on!! :-)
new semester, bring it.
and it's bad, that i took that second look, i guess i'm an open book
you know i didn't really intend to embrace you that long
but then again i wasn't the only one holding on...
