I could think of no better way to give you a peek at my wedding than to show you the speech from my best friend and maid of honor. Enjoy!
Sweet, thanks! I'll definitely give it a listen! Also, John Williams' score from War Horse might interest you a bit. The music is gorgeous and accompanies what I believe is a spectacular film. You might also check out the soundtrack from Downton Abbey. Although I've never actually watched the show, the main suite is definitely a gem. :)
And yes, I am still up at 1:30am doing homework.
Ahh yes! I've actually been meaning to watch War Horse for quite some time, although I'll admit it's not because of interest in either war or horses, but rather British Period Drama which is kind of My Thing. :P But I should definitely investigate the soundtrack.
Yes, Downton Abbey has gorgeous music. And costumes, and scenery, and EXCELLENT actors. It's too bad I don't like the actual series, hahaha. I've tried a little of it and heard a lot about it and know a lot of people who love it but personally I wouldn't recommend it at all. Anyway. I think the same composer wrote the music for Little Dorrit, which is a BBC miniseries based on a Charles Dickens novel, and that has wonderful music too, and some of it reminds me of the Downton themes. You can't just get that soundtrack, though. You'd have to watch the series. (Which, for the most part, I WOULD recommend.)
...heh, sorry, got off on period drama there. Shutting up.
Haaa about the homework. Fuuuun. So what are you majoring in? Something math-and-sciences related, I would imagine...
I'll have to let my sister know about Little Dorrit. She's really into British period shows, styles, etc., etc.. I enjoy that period as well, although I almost never watch the shows (I always seem to be busy with homework, work, and every other boring thing).Anyways, my plan (as of now) is to major in biochemistry so as to continue on to either medical or dental school. I'm still undecided between the two, and am hoping that an undergraduate degree in a very science/health oriented field will guide my decision.And how about you?! I assume you are taking some courses currently when you mentioned the accursed word "homework". Whatever you're doing, I'm sure it's much cooler than my nerd-ness.

-Basically Amy's response when I showed her the message. :P
Yeah, I'm 18 and finishing up my "Senior Year" (it's in quotes because by no means has my high school education been a traditional one). I'm also working as a Photo Tech at Walgreens. I basically describe my job as one where I'm not only responsible for photo orders, but just about every task that no one else wants to do.
I wholeheartedly agree with you on the fact that college should be a time to focus on your specialty, not on every subject that no one cares about. I mean, why don't all high schools just require those courses so that people can have a clearer direction after graduating?! Just more proof our education system in America FAILS!
Anyways, sorry for ranting.
I must say, I’m rather pleased that you’re 18. Since I’m 3 years older than you, I’m rather hoping that means we can be friends without anything being Awkward. Because the truth is, you seem like quite an interesting lad, and I shouldn’t be sorry to know you better. However (as you can probably tell), I am not at all accustomed to making friends with guys. I know very few within even 5 years my own age, but hypothetically I think it would be nice to, if we actually had any common ground (which is rare enough as it is :P). But, I’m not interested in getting to know guys in the way that MOST girls my age would be. Haaa.
It’s probably shockingly candid for me to be saying these things, but I prefer to *not* beat around the bush whenever possible. :P I do hope I’m not coming across as too weird, though.
I must say it seems we have much in common, and I'm completely with you as far as friendships go. So, yes. I fully agree. As a wise man once said, "It's only awkward if you make it awkward." Also, I appreciate those who DON'T beat around the bush! It's much easier for me (an introverted, Christian kid who cares much more for calculus than the ridiculous obsessions of most of today's youth) to hear things as they are so I know if we're on the same page. And indeed, it seems we are.
Excellent. I am glad to hear it. :) Haha, "a wise man once said" is always so ambiguous. You can't remember who said it? You do remember but you don't want to say? It was your dad? You just made it up? :P (I don't really mean 'you' personally, just as an example of In General.) Anyway, for future reference, don't be alarmed if I still act awkward in "real life" because after internet-chatting with someone I tend to do that until I get used to being around them in person. (Yup, I speak from experience.) Speaking of which, will you be at ECD tomorrow?
Next time we chat we should sit down. You're too far above my line of vision. Hahaha. ;P
him: I completely relate to your point on awkwardness though (I don't, however, find you awkward in the least). You know how one occasionally finds those people with whom you can just easily carry a conversation?
me: I'm glad you didn't find me awkward. That means I succeeded in not coming across as awkward which is my GOAL IN LIFE. (...kidding. Sort of. :P) No, the truth is, I don't *always* feel awkward and there are certain people with whom it is much easier to be oneself, and I believe you may turn out to be one of them. :)
him: That is quite a life goal! You seem to be succeeding at it so far! Also, feel free to be yourself around me: no judgements made here! (We have so much in common anyway, so it would be like judging myself) ;)
