Hey, everyone. So it has been 3 days since I last checked in and not much really has happened. I went to school, came home and did homework till I was told to go to bed, and then read for the following 2-3 hours. Pretty boring, really. In Western Australia, we had our state election, with our premier of 8 and a half years getting kicked out to the opposing party. Autumn kicked in (not that Summer ever really was here) and it has been raining for the past few days, on and off. Walking home today, I got splashed by a car driving into a puddle. My friend had got out of the danger zone and ‘forgot’ to warn me. Now, I have never gotten splashed before, having only seen it happen in movies and TV shows, so it was unexpected. (Just wanted to mention how good ‘Stay With Me’ by Chanyeol and Punch is!)
Next week is pretty exciting, though. Next Wednesday, it will be my 16th birthday. I feel so old, knowing that I can get my L-plates, am legally old enough to have sex, and am 2 years away for my 18th. For the day, my parents are pulling me out of school (for the first time) and am taking me to see a production of Matilda, originally written by Roald Dahl. I am so excited because Matilda is my book. Today, I found out some unsettling news. Apparently the Literature class is going on an excursion to see it on the same day, same time, as me. Now, I have some interesting relationships with a couple members of the Lit class. An example is an on/off friendship with this guy who I have know since Year 5. I just have to find a way to avoid the entire class, who will luckily (for me) be pretty noticeable in their school uniforms. They get to go backstage, though. Not too happy about that. Also on my birthday, the school has planned a free dress day. Not a themed dress day, but a FREE dress day. They seriously had to pick the one day, the one birthday, that I am not attending.
Cya later Skittle Skater 💫
