High School Graduate

Let's just say, I still need to work on posting from my phone.
I graduated from HS two days ago, and I don't think it has sunk in yet.
I also leave tomorrow for a summer program at my college, and I'll be back home Aug 2nd. Since I don't have a laptop, I'm not sure if I'll even be able to update.
A while ago, I quoted Mitch hedberg, "sometimes I wake up and I think I should start wearing a beret, but I don't do it. One day I'm gonna, though. You bet your ass, I will have a beret on. That's ridiculous, but it's true. I always fight with wearing a beret", in a post that was and wasn't about knit berets.
Inspired by that quote, I wore a headband around my fore head to school for the last day of school. I always fought with the idea fearing that I'd look too much like a hippie. Well, a dean at my HS thought I looked more Olivia Newton John, while a friend of mine thought I look more street fighter. Ironically, a girl who happened to be wearing a beret saw me and with a weird look on her face asked, "what's this", to which of course I replied, "what?"
I think that was a perfect way to end HS. Freshman year, I was all about blending in, and as the year past, I became about expressing myself no matter what others thought. The past four years, I've learned in terms of style,
Those Who Mind Don't Matter and Those Who Matter Don't Mind. (Dr.Seuss is awesome!)
so yea

Had I known about this, I would've been able to update throughout the day on Wednesday.
So, I got to the hair salon and met the hair dresser which my friend Fabs had referred to me. She was super nice and even went with me to a store to help me pick out the hair that best matched my own hair color. It took me about 6 hours to get my hair done!!! My mom finally came and after that I went and got a mani-pedi. I got home at around 5, and realized that I had to be at my friend Sam's at 5. So, in a promzilla manner, I got ready for prom. My mom, sister, and I arrived at her house at around 6 and was relieved that the limo was running late.

The shoes and clutch
my dress-my mom added the straps

I had an amazing time.

so yea.
****The crying, frustration, and stress did eventually subside as my friend Sean IMed me and stayed on AIM with me as I chronicled my very stressful day to him.****

Prom Day: The Stress

My Prom is today, and it's raining, and believe it or not, I'm NOT THAT excited.
I'm going to try to update about my prom preparations today.
Right now I'm stressed because my mom went to work, and I'm basically left alone to prepare. Yes, I'm crying because I don't know how I'm going to do my hair and I'm getting extensions and I have to buy hair and I don't know what color to get because my hair is really hard to match.
so yea

Right next to my calculus class is the MAN's bathroom. Yesterday, for the first time ever, I noticed that the bathroom had a man's sign on it. I turned around looked at my friend and said, "A, why does the boys' bathroom say MAN and the..." Without letting me finish my sentence, she casually said, "yea I know". I thought to myself, so the girls' bathroom can't say Woman.

That was after I heard about the death of Yves Saint-Laurent. So what does this have to do with Yves Saint-Laurent?
not much, except when I think of YSL, I think of the pant suit.
To me, the pant suit represents girl power, and femininity.
The Fashion Bomb has some really great examples of the pantsuit.

so yea.
Yves Saint-Laurent, Dona Karan, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein all hold a special place in my heart, because they were really the only designers, though not the only brands, that I remembered hearing of growing up. When my dad talks about Yves Saint-Laurent and his impact on fashion, that's when you know the guy was a big deal.

I wished I could blame my hiatus on the school play and hours of HW, but I can't because my school play (Annie Get Your Gun) was two weeks ago, and I barely have any HW now.
I finally got a cell phone-my first one!!
The play, a western, left me with a love of cowboy boots, plaids and fake eye lashes.
I have my prom dress-I'll post pics after prom.
so yea.
I promise to post more often from now on.
