Catholic girls were also warned not to wear black patent leather shoes or to allow their dates to take them to places that had white tablecloths. A girl was not to wear black patent leather shoes because, supposedly, such shoes reflected up. The nuns believed that a boy could see up a girl's dress by looking into her black patent leather shoes. White tablecloths were to be avoided because, according to the nuns, they reminded boys of bed.

I tried reading this book a few years ago, and I thought it was boring. Now I think it's hilarious. Funny how things work out that way. I don't get all of it, since I obviously didn't go to Catholic School growing up, and I barely even practice now, but I get some of it from what my mom's told me. I wonder if it'd be interesting at all to someone who isn't even Catholic.
I started work today. It's kind of interesting, very independent. Might go a little crazy from boredom, but we'll see. I'll probably get really into it once I start coding. For now though, there's a lot to learn. I have to learn JavaScript too. Busy busy.
The headphones I got a couple weeks ago! Happy listenin'

Night falls. Or has fallen. Why is it that night falls, instead of rising, like the dawn? Yet if you look east, at sunset, you can see night rising, not falling; darkness lifting into the sky, up from the horizon, like a black sun behind cloud cover. Like smoke from an unseen fire, a line of fire just below the horizon, brushfire or a burning city. Maybe night falls because it's heavy, a thick curtain pulled up over the eyes. Wool blanket. I wish I could see in the dark, better than I do.

Feelin dramatic at home. Last few days of rest before I start work on Monday. Very unsure of how that's gonna be. I'd rather be drinkin coffee all day

「木」Nearing the End

I'm not ready to leave here for many reasons.

 Too many tests, not enough motivation to study. Kinda sad to think that things won't be the same next year.
I started reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I really like her style so far, but this is just another way for me to procrastinate.
