A (Nice) Surprise

I realize I haven't posted in a while. In all honesty, life has just been stress, stress, stress. It's hard to find the little things of my day that really stand out when I have so many other things to think about. College. Homework. Work. Sleep? No, no sleep. (I'm so tired...)

Even though this week was "finals week" at school, today was a special day. Today was the day I got asked to prom. Even before today, I knew I was going to prom, but I just assumed I would go with some friends. Well, today during lunch, he came over to my table and set a ziploc bag down in front of me. It had the letters PROM? cut out of a pb&j sandwich. Then he said, "Laura, will you be the peanut butter to my jelly? Will you go to prom with me?"

I knew him from doing tech crew for theatre shows. We sometimes talked backstage or at a cast party after a show, but I was still very surprised he asked me to prom. I guess I would consider us to be close acquaintances. We never did things outside of school, like friends would do. But we've spent quite a bit of time building the set for the plays together and working after school on tech stuff.

Anyway, it made my day a whole lot better. And I kind of liked the somewhat "goofy" line he used. Next quarter I have a much easier schedule, so I promise you less posts about stress, and more about things that make my day! Oh, and I recently got a Nikon d3100 a few days ago as an early 18th birthday gift. Life is getting better. : )
