because you wanted to know

it was 7:45 and we were all in line
to greet the teacher Mrs. Kathleen.
First was Kevin, then came Lucy, third in line was me
All of us were ordinary compared to Cynthia Rose
She always stood at the back of the line, a smile beneath her nose
Favorite number was 20, every single day

if you asked her what she had for breakfast, this is what she'd say
[Come on.... ]

Starfish and coffee,
maple syrup and jam
Butterscotch clouds,
a tangerine,
and a side order of ham
If you set your mind free, baby, maybe you'd understand
Starfish and coffee, maple syrup and jam

Cynthia wore the prettiest dress with different colored socks
Sometimes we wondered if the mates were in her lunch box
Me and Lucy opened it when Cynthia wasn't around
Lucy cried, I almost died, you know what we found....

Cynthia had a happy face just like the one she'd draw
On every wall in every school
But it's alright, it's for a worthy cause

starfish and coffee.
maple syrup and jam.
butterscotch clouds
a tangerine
and a side order of ham.

i know that these pictures aren't good i just wanted you to realize that i finally figured out want pre-novice photographers figured out. shutter speed and f-stop. and now i can take pictures in the extreme dark. i had the light off and there are christmas lights on my floor for some reason so i was like "let's not do our homework and take pictures" and those were the ones i sort of liked. it's hard to hold the camera steady on a slow ass shutter speed and i was too lazy to break out the tipod so you get blurry pictures. and the song is "starfish and coffee" by prince. i've loved it for like ten years and they play it at old navy. who would have guessed? but tonight is going to suck. my mom called me the other day and told me that my life is a mess. thanks, mom. it is though. i forget everything and it's gotten really bad lately. i just want to start student teaching so i don't have as much random shit to worry about. but then with student teaching means gay recruitment stuff aka i get to miss two weekends of work. i hate thisssss. and i want to go home. i better get to see jamie before this year is over. even if it is only december 31st. just saying.
we will hang out!
i'm going to sing songs at a nurisng home in an hour. me singing songs, i know. and then we're having a j. crew party or something of the like. i have so much work to do and i might have a paper due at one today and it's now 1:10. so i'm just going to hope that it's not due. i need to stop skipping class. but the good news is i only have like 4 classes left in my undergraduate career. can we take a minute to process that?
and then last night i had to give a presentation and class is supposed to be over at 840 but i didn't start presenting until 851 and so of course i was really nervous. and i knew that i knew everything there was to know about my paper and what do you know? i legit blanked in the middle of it. i was like "Charles Calonne was the Controller General he... he...made a plan to have the nobles pay taxes" and when i blank for some reason i'm not trying to think of the answer. like literally nothing is going through my mind. i'm not sure why i get like this. but i've never been so nervous in my whole life. i mean i hate giving presentations and whatnot but this was bad.
and everyone was staring at me hoping i would go faster since class ran 15 minutes over and oh, i was the last one to present. urhg.
two more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and then finals. and then my life and my college experience will be over (basically).
