and then we all applauded her for coming up with that on the spot (hahaha we tend to applaud A LOT in that class). we all thought she got it from somewhere. and then mrs spencer and i started talking about that & i was telling her about this quote that was sorta like what she had just said: "Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either (Golda Meir)." i totally agree with these statements. one cant have experienced true happiness if they've never felt real sadness. because it's the negative things in life that make everything else so much sweeter(:
right there would probably be a good way to end a post, but i just have to say this cuz it was HILARIOUS in class today!! nikhil and gaby were writing the class's examples of stereotypes for guys and girls on the board, right. and then ryoo says how its a stereotype that guys supposedly do not look past physical appearance, and mrs spencer rephrased that saying, "guys are physically stimulated." then freaakin nikhil turns around and has this ridiculous smile on his face...and we all laugh for like five minutes. it was HILARIOUS. you have no idea. and then i tell mrs spencer, "you mean visually stimulated!" and she laughs & says, "exactly! thats what i meant." and then the class couldnt stop laughing. we're so bad; i love my seventh period(:
ahh this is such a long post..but im avoiding the ridiculous amount of studying & reading that i should be doing until i let all my thoughts out..cuz i just cant concentrate. the poor boy talked to me again today. he confessed to me that he still has feelings for 'that one girl' and it keeps him up at night. i told him, "some things are just hard to get over. especially at our school, we're so small you cant avoid anyone. and seeing them every day hurts a little because you cant help but remember how things used to be. but the world is always changing so we just gotta live with that and move along with it." i go on and on for the approximately thirty minute bus ride, telling him things that are hard for ME to do. i wish i could take my own advice...honestly the whole time i was giving him that speech, i wasnt really thinking of his situation. there was only one person on my mind as i was speaking. the bus stopped in the oxford parking lot and i shook myself awake from my thoughts. tomorrow morning i will wake up and be fine; and who knows if ill have one of those occasional moments where i zone out and sadly reminisce. but hey, no regrets, right?
"dont cry cuz it's over. smile because it happened." (:
