Today is Friday! Huzzah!

Nothing happened at school today. Nothing ever happens at school. Sheesh.

Okay, I lied, there was a good chapel speaker today. I am not exaggerating when I say it was the FIRST good one of the year. *le sigh* Makes me kind of sad.

Also, my friend was upset today but she wouldn't tell anyone why. I'm worried about her. I love this girl so much... I just hope that everything is okay. I won't go into too much detail, but I will say a little bit. This girl has been going through this ongoing struggle since freshman year (we're juniors, nearly seniors). A member of her family is dying, and she's hurting. A lot. And today she said something about not being able to make plans this weekend even... up until now she'd been saying for this summer, but today she said this weekend, so I'm pretty sure that this family member is not doing too well. Even if she's been kind of waiting for something to happen, it's still gotta be tough and scary. I just hope that she'll be alright. She's strong, but this has still got to be hard. I just want to hug her.

*insert awkward transition to a lighter note here*

The boyfriend wants to hang out tomorrow. Upon asking me what I wanted to do, I told him to surprise me. I have a feeling he's not actually going to surprise me, and that I'll end up picking what we do (as usual), but it's a nice thought. This is just one of those days when I'm super super super excited to see him. Maybe it's because we analyzed "our" song in my history class today... which was actually kind of a downer, since it's such a happy sounding song with such a weird/bad/whatever background & meaning.

The song, if you wanted to know, is "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel. It's "our" song because it's the first song I ever heard him sing. We were on the way home from a bowling alley after meeting a few days earlier. We weren't even dating yet. His cousin was driving, and we were in the back seat. My head was resting on his shoulder, eyes closed, and this song came on and just sang it softly in my ear. I nearly fell asleep. It was the best feeling... I don't even know how to explain it. But yeah, every time I hear it, it reminds me of that moment, and how perfect it was.

I guess there's not a whole lot else to say. See you kids tomorrow, then!

p.s. If you're the praying type, could you perhaps please put in a prayer for my friend? Just for comfort and strength, I guess. Thanks. :)
