Ms. Philips gave a few students the job of organizing the decorations for Prom.

I sincerely doubt that the average student here will be able to create a presentable atmosphere… I was hoping that I’d be able to enlist the help of some of the more talented students. Petey? Your artistic skills seem to be a cut above the rest. Do you have any ideas?

(It’s not like this Prom is going to be all that special though. Even if it looks fabulous, I’m sure some of the more simple students here will make it seem like an uncivilized event. Ugh.)

Because it’s easy.

Said the delinquent.

Point of the matter is, breaking into a man’s room is just weird. Is it a strange way of flirting with me?
Flattering, but I’m not interested.

…………………….

Me flirting with you?

Ugh.

My sentiments exactly.

I just realized I hadn’t mentioned the valentine Theresa received. Does anyone want to be the person who sent it, or should I make it from a non-RP character?

Valentines

Theresa slumped over the table at the library. After the end of the school day, she’d claimed this spot as her own. Glitter was piled and blown over the surface, glue stuck to the table top, and lace lay curled over the edge of a corner. The table was a mess, but Theresa had assured the librarian that she’d have it clean before the end of the day. Of course SHE wouldn’t be the one doing the cleaning… A boy named Juri had decided to help her out and clear the table afterwards. No doubt the bribe she’d offered (a small amount really, but Juri seemed impressesed) had tempted him as well.

Theresa had gone straight to work after Ms. Phillips had announced their assignment. The students were to create at least one Valentine for a friend or “special someone.” Ms. Phillips had seemed to take much interest in Valentines Day…no doubt this had something to do with Mr. Galloway.

After gluing a final heart to a large, elegant card, Theresa stacked her cards and surveyed her work. She’d made a total of five valentines. Though she certainly had more than five friends, these cards were reserved for her more special acquaintences. The others would receive store-bought (but just as fabulous) gifts.

The final cards were generally gaudy and appropriately cliche’, but the design had changed a bit according to the gender of the recipient. The girls cards were sparkly, frilly, and scented, while the boys’ were more simplistic and streamlined. All in all, she was proud of her work and was glad her artistic talent could shine through.

Theresa gathered her papers, nodded to Juri, who sat in the corner, waiting for his chore, and left the library. She strode towards the Harrington House, where she would have some much-needed beauty sleep before tomorrow.

She dropped Derby’s, Petey’s, Jelena’s, Gary’s, and Beatrice’s valentines onto her side-table, along with the expensive candies that would go with them. A small envelope next to her door caught her attention. It must have been shoved underneath while she’d been at the library. Her eyes widened and she smiled. Ooh, goody! She at least had one admirer, which was certainly well-deserved. She’d open it tomorrow, but she couldn’t help but study the envelope. The card was definitely from a boy…the hand-writing was much too sloppy to be from any of her female friends. Which boy had thought of her?

The rest of the girls at the school had been talking about giving boys valentines. Johnny Vincent was mentioned often, as were lots of the jocks. But the one boy mentioned the most was Jimmy Hopkins’. She glanced at a valentine she’d planned to give him, pursed her lips, and shoved it back into her bag with the rest of her store-bought valentines. She’d planned to give him a valentine, just as appropriate thanks for the Christmas gifts, but she doubted he’d even notice yet another valentine. Tch. Honestly, he hardly deserved all of the valentines he would get.

In the hopes of distracting herself from any anger,Theresa changed into her pyjamas and got into bed. She didn’t need to be negative…tomorrow could easily go wrong at THIS school, but she was going to try her hardest to make it enjoyable for herself. So far all seemed good, she’d already gotten a valentine! She turned over, turned off her light, and fell asleep with the final hope that maybe she’d have a special someone this Valentines Day.

I’m grounded from the computer (again) because I got in trouble (again) and my simpleton parents think all of my problems can be solved with simpleton punishments. Ugh. BUT I’ve managed to sneak onto the computer a few times.

Okay, okay, enough whining. I haven’t posted on here in awhile, and I’m sad to see that there hasn’t been much posting in general, but hopefully I’ll have a few things for Valentines Day.

OOC: Theresa’s Personality Type

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp

I’ve really gotten into these (extremely accurate) psychological personality tests, based upon the Myers-Brigg’s theroies of personality. I took the test “as Theresa” and received ENFP as a result. This stands for Extrovert Intuition Feeling Perceiving.The ENFP is known as the Advocate or the Inspirer.

Aaand, here’s some details about these people. I find this result alarmingly accurate. The test actually helped me to know her character even better than I already had. I’d definitely suggest taking it. It’s very fun!

"outgoing, social, easily talked into doing silly things, spontaneous, wild and crazy, acts without thinking…”

ENFPs are introspective, values-oriented, inspiring, social and  expressive. They send their thoughts and ideas out into the world as a way to bring attention to what they feel to be important, which often has to do with ethics and current events. ENFPs are natural advocates, attracting people to themselves and their cause with people skills, , energy and positivity. ENFPs are described as creative, resourceful, assertive, spontaneous, passionate and experimental.

"ENFPs are warm, enthusiastic people, typically very bright and full of potential. They live in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. This can lead them to make hasty decisions, and to judge people or events too quickly; they will not gauge something as accurately and patiently as they should. Their enthusiasm lends them the ability to inspire and motivate others, more so than we see in other types. They can talk their way in or out of anything. However, they have the tendency to basically blurt out what’s on their mind, which may hurt others. Unlike the Thinkers though, they will be more willing to approach any problems in a relationship and fix it…either for themselves, their cause, or for the other person. They love life, seeing it as a special gift, and strive to make the most out of it, even if this can get them into trouble.”

OOC: I’ve had no time/inspiration to RP lately soooo, here’s some photos of my cut. Its scarred over now, but I took the pictures 2 days ago when it was still rather red. The scar has actually gotten longer and has moved over my eye more (I’m guessing this has something to do with growing skin?)

Anyways, I’m happy with it, ha ha. It’s pretty cool. Though my brother (who’s finally played Bully. FINALLY.) is a bit weirded out by it. He says I look completely like a female Gary now. Silly brother, its on the opposite side anyways. (I looked like a female Gary before? Whut? Is it the nose? :T )

ooc: You’re becoming Gary because you have a cat? /missing the point

OOC: Ha ha! No nononono, I now have a pretty big cut across my left eyebrow from when my cat scratched me. Its the cut/scar.

thatcroatianchick-deactivated20 said: I still wouldn't trust him.

I think I can take care of myself, thank you very much. Think of some of the people you put your trust in!

But thanks for the concern.

OOC: A few nights ago my cat was startled in the middle of the night and jumped onto my face.

Her claws dug right in and I was left with a large gash. That’s started to scar. Across my left eyebrow. Straight up from my eye.
