6:45PM - update
1. It's my birthday tomorrow, September 24. I'll be 18. I'm not going to buy cigarettes or go to a strip club but I might buy a lottery ticket and go to a porn shop with Hannah to make fun of her ex-boyfriend who works there.
2. I'm going on a hot air balloon on Sunday.
3. I have an Ecuadorian boyfriend who used to be a salsa teacher, we speak Spanish and go dancing and ice skating all the time. I think I'm falling in love just a little bit which is so ironic because...
4. I have a ticket to the Dominican Republic that says I'm leaving on October 5 and not coming back until January 6. Then I'll be home for a couple weeks and leave again for 5 months. I will be teaching English and building a school and having the time of my life and (hopefully) not missing home too much.
5. I'll only be able to check my email about once a month but if you want to hear from me give me your email address and I'll definitely write.
6. This will probably be end of livejournal for me for a while... but you never know.
7. I'm so happy I'm waiting a year for college, life is surreal and fucking perfect.

|You Should Learn Swedish|
Fantastisk! You're laid back about learning a language - and about life in general.
Peaceful, beautiful Sweden is ideal for you... And you won't even have to speak perfect Swedish to get around!

so i'm going to be living in our guest room in the
downstairs for my last two months at home.
my mom and sister have decided that because of my sister's "emotional load" right now she gets my perfect room in august.
what the fuck man.
the worst part is i know that they're kind of right, a sixth grade girl can't be sharing a room with her younger brother.
but this room is my LIFE.
i LOVE this room.
i love my orange and green walls and hanging sarongs and (this is about to get really corny) all my best memories surrounding me.
and i'm feeling rather, displaced?
on a brighter note, i got a killer prom dress.
10 days til prom
41 days til graduation
3 months til basement residency starts
3.5 months til everyone leaves
5 months til peru

11:14PM - libra, for tomorrow...
Some interesting information could come to you from a distant state or foreign country, Charlotte. This could induce some pretty deep thinking, leading to decisions that could actually alter the course of your life in some way. You might be considering returning to school and advancing your education. Your mood today should be optimistic and positive, and you could be full of utopian schemes for the future. Wait a few days, then start to make definite plans.
that would be nice

i'm at a really beautiful place in my life right now,
i never document the days when i'm hapy for no particular reason, so in case i'm reading this in 10 years this post is to say the end of my senior year was just really wonderful, intense and a lot to deal with, but i haven't had a bad day in so long.
i'm exploding with love for my friends, what beautiful people.
and i love this SUN!!
oh, and uh, belize next year with emma? it's a new country every day, but i'm going somewhere and that is for sure.
8:51PM - hell yeah
Your Inner European is Spanish!
Energetic and lively.
You bring the party with you!

4:33PM - hola from Cusco
there is a bomb ass peruvian boy sitting at the computer across from me and i´m really distracted.
i haven´t had any free time at all this trip and so this, my second to last day in peru, will function as the dozens of postcards i promised to write.
we started in lima and it scared me a little. 9 million people packed into one city makes for a lot of tragedy. you see people and dogs shitting on the streets, tiny women with no teeth wil follow you for blocks trying to sell their flowers or keychains, little colonies of kids with elaborate plans to rob you. it was just a lot. but i also loved it for all the colors, everywhere you look there are deep oranges, cobalt blues, and it was PERU! spanish spanish spanish everyhwere and merengue blasted from clothing stores.
i´m totally hearing costi songs like ¨te amo¨ and other songs from junior´s merengue cd, and juanes too, a lot of juanes.
then to huancayo, which might be my home next year. my host family was adorable, i got along really well with the oldest daughter mirella. the grandmother of the family is practically deaf and mute and wanders the house aimlessly all day. there are some people that i feel so comforatable speaking spanish with and these are some of those people. it´s just like a light goes on in my head and i can´t stop talking and words pop into my head that i don´t ever remember learning. fluency fluency that´s what i want.
oh shit my time is almost up.
well, yesterday was macchu picchu and there are really no words. my host mom told me about a friend of hers who couldn´t walk, went to macchu piucchu for a day, and left walking. i totally believe it.
ok i have to go, tonight we´re going to a discoteca, good thing all my clothes are sooooo nasty right now.
adios, see you all soon!

I HATE COLLEGE
I HATE COLLEGE
I HATE COLLEGE
regection letters are like being dumped and waitlist letters are the "i just need some time alone to figure out what i want" speech.
but tonight will be a blast.
and whatever, i'm going to the sun next year. they can be on MY waitlist after PERU.
but it still fucking stings

10:47PM - this is too much for me
i've been on the brink of exploding all day,
i'm going to peru next year i'm going to peru next year i'm going to PERU next year for EIGHT MONTHS
god i don't understand how suddenly everything can just fall right into place,
this makes too much sense to be happening
this doesn't make any sense but it's happening it has to.
suddenly i have support instead of "you're just going to waste a year and never come back and fall in love and have little peruvian babies and never go to college"
suddenly there's free spanish lessons in return for teaching english
suddenly it's contacts in south america and suddenly
uh wait, i mean FINALLY my excitement for next year is overwhelming my sadness for leaving this one.
but jesus, if i have too many more days like today i' m not going to graduate.
i am officially INCAPABLE of doing homework,
or anything for that matter except thinking about slash planning next year.
and salsa dancing.
or thinking about the salsa boys.
i just can't do anything, even writing this has taken me forever i have no control over my wandering mind.
breathe charlotte breathe.
