New Beginnings and a Tag of sorts

Hey Everyone,
Its that time of year again... exam time! It is hard to believe that I am in my last year of high school. Writing what will be my last set of high school exams. Onto bigger and better things. It has yet to hit me that I am almost done high school and that I will be leaving my beloved school of 6 years ( I started there in grade 7). I will miss all of my amazing teachers most of which are more then just teachers, but also mentors and friends. They are people I knew that I could go to with any problem, no matter how big or small. They would always be ready and willing to help me. My classmates, some of whom I've known since grade 7 others, more recently. We have become a pretty tight knit group. Not all necessarily best friends but people who I feel comfortable talking to now and again. I will miss the simple everyday things. The routines that I have gotten so used to.
It is weird to think that I will not be going back next year. I will not don my uniform again in September, nor will I be walking those now familiar halls, greeting familiar faces. The one thing that I love about my school and I know I will miss dearly is the community. It is a small school which makes it possible for me to know so many people, not only in my grade but in younger grades. I have been able to make some really great friends with people in grades younger then myself, because we see each other so often in the hallways or at lunch. Teachers who I have never had a class with know me by name, by the simple fact that the school is so small. It has been both a blessing and a curse. I mean rumors spread extremely fast, and everyone knows everything about everyone, but other then that it has been nice. I know that I am rambling on, but the knowledge that high school is done has just begun to hit as I write this. Wow. Hard to believe. I thought it would hit sooner. I totally pegged myself as the one who would be crying about the last day of classes, the last assembly the last whatever. But I didn't. I am sad to leave but ready to move on. I know that next year will bring new challenges, new friends and amazing times. I am excited about the next chapter of my life.

Tess had a great Tag on her blog. I wasn't tagged, but I didn't let that stop me from doing it. Haha. ( I will do anything not to study for exams... including updating my usually unloved blog). I feel like I just invited myself to someones house for dinner. Breaking the rules... oh well. This is me being a rebel. Haha. The questions were just to good to pass up. So here we go. Feel free to rebel with me :) I think the way it works is I answer her questions then make up some of my own, for others to do.

1. For those nights when you eat ice cream out of the carton, you are watching what guilty pleasure TV show?
Generally I always eat ice cream out of the carton. I even write my name on it, so as to keep others (namely my brother) from helping themselves to my ice cream. Usually I grab it when I'm studying. Or when I'm watching a great chick flick and painting my nails. Really anytime is perfect for eating ice cream.

2. If you could have any animal in the zoo as my pet, what would you choose?
Probably a giraffe. They are so cool. Although I don't know how that would fit in the house. More practical (if possible) would be a penguin.

3. What would your daemon be (for you Philip Pullman fans) or what would your patronus be (calling all Potterheads)?
hummm... which animal am I most like. This is tough. I want to say something like a gazelle because they are fast and graceful. I am not fast and I can be kinda clumsy, thats probably not what it would be. One can dream right?
4. What was your favorite childrens book?
The Very Bad Rabbit. It had an orange cover, and I would want it read to me every night for my bedtime story. To the point where I had it memorized but I still wanted to hear it every night.
5. What is the most overrated movie you have ever watched?
This is a tough one. I feel like any of those comedies that people are like OMG that was the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life, then you go and watch it and you don't even laugh.

6. What book character would you like to befriend?
Well a book character that I would like to date is Wes from The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen but I realize that is not the question being asked.
Befriend. So many. I always think books are better when I feel like I could be friends with the character.

7. What is your favorite type of cake?
The more chocolate the better.

8. What song to you sing along to in your car when no one is with you?
Pretty much everything, and horribly too might I add. I never know all the words, so its generally me laughing at my self for screwing up the lyrics.

Okay here are some of my questions! I'm not going to tag anyone but leave me a comment if you did do my questions, I would be interested to read your answers.
1. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live and why?
2. If you could switch places with anyone for a day (dead or alive, real or imaginary) who would it be?
3. If you had to eat one food everyday for the rest of your life what would it be?
4 . If you had to pick a season to live in for one year which would it be? Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer?
5. What is your go to movie when you are feeling down?
6. If you had to wear one outfit for the rest of the year what would it be?

I hope that everyone has an amazing rest of the weekend.
Good luck with exams if you have any!
