I even found time to file and paint my fingernails.
And, I think my hair will be pulled back again, since I can't find the time to wash it. (Don't worry, it's only my third day without a wash, but I did wash my bangs today.)
Maybe a headband to complete the look...
Why am I so anxious about my appearance? Well, it'll be my first activity with the Beehives. (My new calling.) We're going to the Joseph Smith Memorial Building to view 'The Testament.' I really want these girls to like me. So, much in fact, that I can't stop thinking about first impressions:
What if they tell secrets in front of me? Are they talking about me?
What if they think my car smells?
What if they hate my music?
If I ask questions, will they answer me?
What if when I take them home, they take me on a wild goose-chase and think it's funny that I don't know where they live.
As you can see I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed. I called one of the girls tonight to remind them of the activity tomorrow, and I tried to sound interesting, but after I hung-up, I knew I sounded much too eager.
And, I've been trying to remember what I was like when I was 12 and 13. It definitely was an awkward age for me- I was trying to find myself; I wanted cool friends, and I even wanted boys to begin noticing me.
Hopefully this activity will help me get to know these girls a little better. I really want to be these girls friend! I hope they can confide in me and know that I'm truly looking out for their best interest. (Then, have a slumber party, talk about Hollywood crushes, paint their nails, watch 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' while eating Cookie Dough Ice Cream... Okay, I do realize I'm getting way ahead of myself.)
But, most of all, it wouldn't hurt if they thought I was sort-of cool.
