So, Leah and I planned to hang out today and I made her explore the underground tunnel that Clark and I discovered in 8th grade. We get in there and she’s like scared as hell and we turn back pretty early, but we get the idea of calling a BUNCH of people to invite to help us explore this shizzzzz
We’ll go back another day :D
YES PLEASE!! Thank you Ray soo much for starting a perfect summer day <3 It just doesn’t stop! We are opening that door next time!!! :)
Sk8iNJoHnNy: you should of went to EDC!! while i was there I remember thinking, Leah is would have loved this olivejuiceleah: dudee LOL tiffany thought that too you guys are really really amazing for thinking of me
I love it when my friends know what I would love :) and accept me even if I roll a different way sometimes <3 Idk, just makes me happy.
Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so “mature”. I consider my mom’s opinion and permission in EVERYTHINGG because we have a very good trust relationship and I’m well aware it takes two to keep that going. But let’s say I was like my most of my peers who just DID stuff without asking their mom, then I’d be able to donate blood today so Helen and I could get two backstage passes for when we go to Warped this Friday. To think that is the worst thing I’d do without listening to my mom. She’s unreasonable and treasures my blood way too much. But I’m still not willing to disobey her…because I love her -_-
edit: I guess I am most annoyed right now because she threatened to not let me go to Hong Kong if I donated blood..and that is just mega -________-. And Jackiee I have donated blood at school the last two years and she thinks it’s getting out of hand.. LOL Even though people do it like every two months. Sigh whateverr. Sorry Helen :/
So I just came upstairs from the casino downstairs from Morongo :( After losing 200 dollars…my mom just told me to come upstairs and sleep. I didn’t even want to go down in the first place!! As much as I hate being stuck in a hotel room for two days straight watching Disney Channel nonstop with two babies and a feverish 6th grader…I didn’t feel like looking normal and going out to the casino either LOL But once you’re there..man it’s addicting. Too bad addiction sometimes = LOSS.
But when I was playing blackjack, I started losing really badly when this boy started talking to me. LOL This is not another gay story of me trying to be forward with a boy or whatever.. cause I’m seriously not any hotter at 2am than I usually am..so I ain’t going to be trying any moves! But he was just really nice. The whole thing was just really cute, in a very amusing made-me-smile-not-fluttery-but—just-smile-way. I suck at blackjack. The only reason I did well the first time I went to Morongo is cause I had beginner’s luck…but that train left the station like… after that day. So this one old guy at the end of the table had three freaking spots! He was playing all of them with hundreds LOL and yelling crazy stuff in korean. THAT was the cute part. Then this cute korean boy was just like lovingg the old guy and the old man kept giving this cute korean guy advice. It was soo cute. Then when both of them realized I seriously sucked, the korean man started yelling stuff at me in Korean. I had to tell him I wasn’t korean. The Korean boy started talking to me before the old guy tried to help though, just asking me questions etc. He had to help me translate what the old guy was saying and it was cute, cause the old guy still tried to help and also talk to me in Chinese. He actually knew a lot. When he told me to hit, and I bust for once, he said sorry in Chinese over and over again. I think he was buzzed and REALLY bubbly. But for once, -I stayed relatively shy this whole time- I perked up and I said Kinchenahh! :) Which means It’s Okay in korean. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to say that…because that’s my favorite korean phase. And it was just cute, the three of us trying to beat the dealer at this casino gamee. And it didn’t hurt that the Korean boy was really really cute. He wasn’t really a BOY. He was like out of college..but still really friendly and chill at the same time. Our conversation throughout our short time at the table was likeee thiss
Boy: So how was your night? Me: To be honest.. LOL it’s like my second time gambling. Boy: Ohhh hahhaa I seeee. Me: Yeah.. so who are you here with tonight? Boy: …Uhhh hahahah Me: Are you here with him? Crazy old man: Korean koreankoreankorean yelling at the dealer waving his hands in the air LOL Boy: NO LOL But this guy is crazy. I’m uhh Me: -are you here by yourself? Boy: uhh hahahha yeah *legit blushing for the first time..not so slick*.. Me: LOL It’s okay that’s coool :) Boy: So who are you here with? Me:.. UMMM LOL Boy: Friends? Me: I’m here with my mom actually. Hahhaahhaha. Boy:.. oh really? HAHAHA, I mean..that’s cool..that’s cool. Me: LOL it’s okay, that means I’m not much off better than you. We’re equal :) ——-We talked about school and he told me how SD is actually really cool and I’ll like it and he likes it cause his brother went there etc he asked about what I was studying and I actually told him my plans for the future. Basically he distracted me from making good judgement calls..if I even had any for the game. Not cause he was like hot, which he was, but because it was..genuine nice conversation. Too bad it had to take place at a blackjack table?? And we would stop frequently to laugh or take advice from the old guy, still cashing in hundreds. Finally..
Me: Omgg :( *embarrassed* I only have two chips left.. LOL *hold up my two chips* Boy: HAHHA It’s okay…*holds up his hand* I only have one chip left. So I guess…I’m not much better off than you either :) We both bust and he leaves, cause it’s his last game. I play one more, and I’m out too. But he’s gone before I know where he is or ever had a chance to say goodbye.
And the whole time as I walk back to the room and take the elevator I’m thinking…isn’t that sad when this happens in life? You meet people, you have really good conversations, share your moments over something, anything, with total strangers..and then boom, you never see them again? That’s such a sad..but I guess good thing in life. Cause I’m just amused and happy, that that blackjack table happened this weekend. Most tables are just quiet, while everyone tries to do their thing, maybe adding comments once in awhile. But I kind of really liked this old korean man and this very good looking boy. They made me feel welcome and for once I didn’t pretend like a regular. I was able to straight up tell them I was 18 -when the drunk old man asked- and that I sucked at blackjack. And it was okay because mr old man was an eccentric drunk who was intense on gambling and the boy..well I guess I’ll always wonder why he decided to come to Morongo on a Monday night by himself and where he got that smile from.:) So I guess 200 bucks is worth these kind of moments and afterthoughts right? LOL Maybe I’ll just stop gambling, or maybe I’ll bump into both of these men one day when I’m much better at blackjack <3
I thought grad nite would be the last night I’d be pulling an all nighter, but this second night of summer I’m stilll up at the early morning hour of 6am!!
Today was interesting as it was, seeing how June and I stepped over to a new threshold of teen-dom at Jillbean’s party. However, seeing how the night was rather uneventful, Helen took me home. On the way home she talked about she saw a ton of cars outside Jon’s house earlier, so we did a second check up. Then I assured her that Jon was in San Fran andd I was ready to call it a night.
However, after a late night paranoia talk with Josh, we were about to stop being paranoid when he GOT HITTT!! War was on.
I know some of the new council members, especially some of the girls, may have been wahh about the night, but no one can deny it was an unforgettable night. I never considered baking cookies or making cute signs for the new council, because the way I see it, TP is an epic tradition. You go balls out, to show the pride old councils have at the end. That way the new council, knows, that by the end of the year they’ll have just as much pride to uphold. Besides, the new councils always give up a great fight, it’s the first time working together.
And MAN TODAY WAS EPIC. After Josh gets hit, he and Justin come with Helen to my house. Michelle, my bff who’s not even on council, drives over, and so does Meesh. We waited for hours since I already prepared my super soaker, buckets of water, bags of flour, and random throwable objects before they came. But I took Justin and Josh around to the back to check out the hose. Right when we’re walking back out, these dark black figures run at an angle towards my house sprinkling my lawn with toilet paper immediately!! I freak out because I came out in my grandmothers size 3904820934 slippers, and the two brothers chase the trespassers. LOL It was the most hilarious thing, because baby Stephen stood out in the middle of the road abandoned LOL So the two brothers and I all charged for him. Josh managed to get himself into the car, hanging out dangerously while TRICIA god forbid her DIRTY DISRESPECTFUL FRESHMAN MOUTH, starts screaming obsenities. The whole thing was just a blur. When the car drove away, we ran back to our house, fully into war mode and alert as ever. We all decided, they were definetly on the offense now, and so we had to be too.
Justin stationed himself at the hose, Josh behind the mailbox with flour. The four girls hid ourselves in the car, ready to be a secondary surprise attack. We waited for literally hours, perking up each time a car drove by. The attackers drove by a few times to survey my house, but we remained hidden. Finally, we saw a line of cars drive into fourth, the closetest small street near my house and we realized how undermanned we were. We called Jonathan and Raymond for help, because we were about to get owned, but they refused to come. My bad for screaming at them in fear and excitement :/ Anyway, although the cars were parked at the side street, there was no attack for more than half an hour. We saw the last car pull into that small street, and Justin was sent to spy. He saw a group of kids huddled coming up with a strategy and we knew we had to be prepared. When they still hadn’t attacked, our anxiety brought out the best in us. I got into MIchelle’s car and we drove into Fourth, ready to shoot at them. We intended on forcing them out of their meeting spot and boy did it work. As we fired the water guns, they piled back into their cars and headed towards my house. By the time Michelle went the VERY little distance across the street to my house, all I saw was epicness.
White cloud and smoke covered my entire front yard, and chunks of white were beating the wind onto my yard. There were cars parked in the middle of the street and FINALLY I barely made out all the black figures running around in the chaos. Michelle and I wanted to stay at the car, but we decided this was war and we were gonna fight!! So I ran out with my water gun, blessed that it STILL had water and started shooting every where. It was hard to see faces in the flour cloud, but it didn’t matter cause there were so many new ASB members, we were surrounded. Finally, some accidental damages happened to the cars and the war ended. The new council demanded each other to retreat, and Justin, Josh, Michelle, Meesh, Helen, and I stood in the middle of my street surveying the disaster that had ensued.
LOL It was honestly, an epic epic way to kick off summer. I feel really bad some of the girls were really angry and I still really want to provide an interior wash to Joseph An’s car, but I think it was worth it. We never meant to harm them or to beat the council into submission or anything. We just wanted to put up the best fight we could, cause as student leaders I wanted to prove we were equal and wanted everyone to have an epic night. I’m pretty sure that happened. But after wards we drove back to Jon’s house to help them clean up, even though they had already gotten it all clean. I drove back to get money to buy donuts, but Meesh had decided also to get donutss. It was our form of apology for any hard feeilngs, cause that was the LAST thing we wanted. We just wanted to have friendly competition and duke it out, cause what other time in our lives would 30 kids fight in the middle of the street with flour, water and toilet paper? I really hope the new council isn’t mad at us, cause it was our way, albeit belligerent, way of showing us how much we love them :)
Now I am home, amazed at how disgusting the outside streets look with the remnants of flour attempted to be wash away by water. But it was very worth it :) As life has been thus far, this summer. I REALLY HOPE THE NEW COUNCIL ISN’T MAD and can see how unforgettable this night was too <3
Special thanks to the warriors that stationed themselves at my house tonight, looking for the best fight even if it meant leaving their own forts open to attack. You guys are the best :)
Drivers of ASB 2010-2011 PLEASE CALL ME FOR ANY INTERIOR WASHES OR REPAIRS NEEDED!! and new members, you guys were awesome tonight! :)
Hello world. By this time tomorrow, I'll have graduated from high school.
I’m really nervous for all the times I have to go up on stage tomorrow. I don’t even have to give a speech. But I can’t believe I get to stand in front of all 12,000 people, transfer the mace to Jon, lead the flag salute, introduce Meghan <3, sing the Alma Mater, and finally, finally…count off the cap toss. I can barely imagine myself sitting amongst the sea of maroon tomorrow, amongst my fellow peers I’ve grown with for the last four years. It seems almost impersonal how detached from the masses I will be. It’s impossible to grasp because I’m already incredibly nervous that I’m GRADUATING from high school, this place that has been my home and life for the last four years. But I also have to worry about a bunch of scary obligations. Yet it’s my very last duties, and it’s all over. Mostly, it’s a blessing. Because maybe if I try hard enough, when I’m up there, I’ll be able to look every single one of my fellow seniors in the eye and let them know, without words, how happy and damn proud I am that we made it <3 in every way possible.

really really fun. i left feeling really happy and even though there were so many people and people did end up breaking into their cliques, i think a bonding event is sucessful if you can bond with SOME people that you usually don’t. and I did that tonight. it was sooo much fun playing red rover with the boys i used to hang out with and the g7 girls and even if we didn’t ALL sit together or watch the sun set together (it set when we were all doing something) i loved seeing all the seniors at one place together.
in the morning I woke up and went to my English project meeting where we shot videos and it was fun because my english group is <3
then I went home and helped my mom clean the house/ watched disney channel with my siblings
after that I went to the SMW party!! where I mostly hung out with a bunch of new members that i wish i got to hang out longer with LOL even though I was like the loser senior hahahah i love that class
but i had to go to senior sunset which was honestly great. i played red rover with a lot of my old best guy friends and other fellow seniors that i love but don’t get to talk to that often and it was really carefree and fun even though my arms hurt ksjdlksjdf i’m going to miss a boatload of seniors
i ended the night at my best friend virginia ma’s house :) with my best friends and now i’m home! it was a great DAYYYYYYY
Today was a really really really long day. I almost thought it ended on a good note, because singing always makes everything better. I think I won the toughest battle tonight, but now I have to make sure this isn’t just like the rest of the years. It is so so important to me. More than anything.
I hope the last few days of school are amazing, because to be very honest, I’ve been too tired to notice. It will be though <3
