random things that have happened recently...

I shall go in entirely random order because that's about how my brain is working right now.

I'm gonna be Bellatrix Lestrange for Halloween, and I got this awesome corset from Hot Topic for the costume. (For those of you who don't know, I am not the Hot Topic type. The employees gave me weird looks when I walked in--like "Um, I think you're in the wrong place.") And this morning I decided that it was too cute to wait for Halloween so I wore it today. And got a ton of compliments. And K was like "Hey it's really cute!" and like felt the bottom hem of it for no apparent reason. ^^

Speaking of K, the other day on the bus she had a couple strands of hair like in the corner of her mouth and I reached over and tucked it behind her ear. ^^ See I'm getting more confident, it's only a matter of time (before I tell her, I mean). Her birthday is the 13th, and I was gonna get her an Arwen Evenstar necklace (Lord of the Rings) but it was $50 and although I'd love to get her an expensive piece of jewelry that would mean a lot to her I can't really afford an expensive necklace. Plus the info didn't say what it was made of. But yeah, she invited me to go to breakfast with her (and her family? idk) on her birthday. And yeah.

Let's see...oh so the school club fair (which was a total failure this year there were only four clubs and like nobody came even though it was in the main hall during lunch) was Wednesday and the GSA was there so I got a bookmark and put my name on the email list and I'm going next Tuesday! Yay me! And I'll see if I can get any of my friends to come with me.

...Speaking of friends as of today I'm out to all of my close friends. (That's...one two three...seven...eight NINE people.) I came out to one over Facebook, that Honesty Box thing--she put "What's one thing you've always wanted to tell me?" so I told her. And she was so great about it. She was like "I hope you know that all of us, all your friends, love you no matter what." It made me very happy. (Incidentally, I had a very trite and short-lived crush on her about a year ago...I still think she's totally awesome but I don't like her like that anymore.) And then today during my free period one of my friends and I were in the library doing homework (which is how we usually spend our free period ><) and somehow we got to talking about how we aren't very open with people and all that sort of thing (which in itself is something I never talk about with people). And I was like "Well since we're talking about being open, I think this is a good time to tell you that I'm bisexual." (I considered saying "queer" but that would've led to a bunch of awkward questions so yeah.) And she, being a band kid, was like "Oh, okay."

I'm not sure if I mentioned this one earlier, but I was shopping with my friends a week or so before school started, and a few of us were hanging out in Gap, and I was getting kinda worn out so I sat on the floor in the front. They had some huge window sticker thing facing the mall, and it was just white on our side. There was like this triangular gap in it and I was like "Haha I should put my face against the window and make faces at people!" And one of my friends was like "Um, Emily, that's some girl's legs" and I remembered that it was a big picture of a model lying down. And that the triangle was at her crotch. And my face turned bright red and I cracked up. When I calmed down I was like "Um, so yeah, that was like doubly funny to me because I'm bi." And they were like "Oh." Then they went to the back of the store and had me keep an eye on their crap while they tried stuff on and I was all freaking out like "OMG they're talking about me! They aren't cool with it!" but it was just me being paranoid, nobody's treating me weird or anything.

I might've also mentioned that I'm in choir this year (haven't been for like 3 or 4 years) and it's freaking AMAZING! It's actually my hardest class so far cuz I suck at reading music and we're learning a ton of new songs. But it's such a high! Like, being part of this beautiful harmony...it gives me chills. And makes me grin like a monkey. But that's okay I need *something* to make me smile these days.

(OMG I think my contacts have decided to turn to acid and start killing my eyes. All of a sudden my eyes are just stinging and watering really bad. Ugh.)

What else? Well, I could go on and on about school but I doubt anyone cares to hear the details. Suffice it to say that I wish it was May or June again.

I guess that's it! (Watch me post another uber-long journal in about five minutes. Just watch.)

That's awesome!

I wish I had the confidence to nonchalantly come out to people... You rock. Also, Bellatrix rocks. Helena Bonham Carter rocks, too. And I don't even know if my school has a GSA! I envy you!

Also... "And she, being a band kid, was like 'Oh, okay.'" I just find that really hilarious. I thought it was just the bandies at my school that were like that. :P

Oh no, that's bandies

Oh no, that's bandies everywhere, trust me. Not only that, either... it's all of the artsy people, including music and dance and theater and all fo that, anywhere. xD

"Assets, what are our assets?"

"Well I've got a banana, and in a pinch you could put up some shelves..."

Hahaha, I didn't know that

Hahaha, I didn't know that either, but that's awesome. xD

bandies are definitely the best group... we're the craziest and by far the most fun. Then again... that could be the fact that I and all of my friends are bandies speaking. >>
