(I've tried patience)

Two months and the world is ending.

Everyone in the year below was clustered in the dining room weeping and wailing over someone they're ~gasp~ not going to see until September...
I don't think I was ever like that, even at my old school where I had friends. ~s~

They've last-minute-rescheduled sports day as well, the bastards. Thank god I don't have to be involved.

It is going to be a day full of tears and leavers' books and "I know we haven't spoken much over the last five years but I'll really miss you". ~shakes head~ We'll do it all today, and then we won't have anything left for tomorrow, and by Saturday it will all seem unreal.

I know that, because it's what happened when I left my last school. Someone, I can't remember who, was leaving on the Wednesday instead of the Friday, so the whole year congregated at the adventure playground (yes, really) and cried and hugged one another and clung together and cried more.
The Thursday evening we had a Leavers' Dance. It was one of the most painful dances I've ever been to (which is saying something), but that's another story. Most people just treated it like an ordinary school dance.
Then on the Friday, suddenly we weren't there any more.

I miss my old school desperately. I wonder if one day I shall miss this one, despite the legion bad memories.
It seems unlikely, but you never know.

~amused~

One of the few things I love about packing is my tendency to turn up old unfinished stories and look at them and go "That was actually pretty damn good..." I'll never finish them, of course, but it's nice to find them.
Especially the one I just found. 'Cause, Twins. You boys are so inspirational. ~smile~ And a whole lot of cartoons I'd completely forgotten about. And a particularly nice pair of earrings. It's amazing what gets lost over a term.

Well, I have to go and sing now. And then back to packing. And then there's some sort of barbecue lark. So...back later.

I really don't think I should be thinking about going to Whitby.

Just so you know...

...I am covered in chocolate. ~s~

Also, I wish people would stop putting pictures in my head, because it's getting to be like Mary Poppins in there and I'm just waiting for the dancing penguins which will probably be along shortly.
Later : Ahem, I said stop? Please?


Also, our head of history is walking around school dressed as a rabbit.

So I'll be in my room then...

Sometimes I just can't believe...

...the intensity with which I love so many people. ~shakes head~

I have spent the last hour with a cat on my lap. This made me happy.

Yay, it's the dance display in two hours! One thing my school invariably gets right.

~sigh~

~scatters hugs and kisses and things to people who could possibly use them~
So many people, and so nothing I can do. I wish I could help.

All the teachers are wandering around our house drunk as anything. I don't want to be here, I want to be somewhere I can *help people* dammit.

I love you. I love you all so much.
