Friday I stayed home from school partly because I have a cold and partly because it’s raining in Ecuador pretty hard. So, I just chilled out at home, read Breaking Dawn. Then Phoebe texted me asking if I’d want to go to the mall to look for another dress because the one she got for me is more of a prom dress.
So we went to Younkers, Deb, Macy’s and Express. I found one at Younkers and she ended up buying it for me because I couldn’t get a hold of my parents. So, I came home and mom was the only one here. I made a pizza for dinner. On Saturday I had band practice at 10 in the morning. Then Samantha and I went to wal-mart after because I had to pick up some nail polish remover. I stopped at Tabitha’s dads to pick up $10 because she didn’t go to the dance and I had bought her a ticket. I came home and got ready, did my nails, make up and mom did my hair. I picked up Rhonda at like 5 and we went over to Ashley’s house to meet Hannah, Gwen, Kayla and Delia. We took pictures, ate food, listened to music and chilled. Hannah and I left around 8 to go to the high school. We got there at the same time as Brandon, Harry, and Garret. I was so excited. We checked our stuff in and started dancing! We danced on a table and I grinded with Brandon like a ton! And I danced with a lot of other people. A lot of our friends didn’t come, but it was still a ton of fun! They played really good music and we were all comfortable with each other. After the dance I went to Perkins with Hannah, Delia, Kayla, Gwen, and Ashley. We all got food. Breakfast and dinner. I was so hyper! It was a perfect thing to do after a dance! We were there until 2am. It was really busy! Hannah stayed over. We both slept in my twin bed. We talked for like an hour and went to sleep. This was an awesome weekend!
Present day me: I miss being awake enough to go to perkins that late at night and just have a good time!

Last day. Thank god.
Well, yesterday we hung out here at the hotel. I sat up in the balcony and did my homework because my sunburn was killing me. And then I painted a bowl and frog. We all went to Habanero’s last night for dinner. It was pretty good. Today mom, Meryl, Oma, and I went into town in the morning to do a little bit of shopping. Then we all went to a really nice beach, we went swimming and I tanned, but didn’t get much. Then we went to the sea glass beach. We came back to the hotel and had dinner. We sat by the fire and had a cake to celebrate Susie’s birthday next week and Uncle Pat graduating. Um, not for me for getting my license because it’s not as important as those things. What the fuck ever. I was pretty pissed tonight along with Eddie and Meryl. We sat in our room complaining about the family and how Phoebe is turning into a really big bitch. But whatever. I’m so fucking glad we’re going home tomorrow!
Present day me: This was the year when these family vacations started to become less enjoyable. I do remember feeling unappreciated by my grandparents and aunts and uncles on this side of the family. Maybe I should have spoken up for myself, in hindsight, but I was very shy back then. When it came to standing up for myself, I didn’t know how to do so, especially with family members who were older than me. In my mind they knew best. I just vented to my siblings about any frustrations.

Hey! I stayed at Hannah’s last night along with Rhonda, and Beth. It was fun! On the car ride to her house we called Todd and Rhonda said she was Hannah and he believed it! And Hannah said she was Rhonda. Haha. I had to tell him who I was. We used my phone. When we got to Hannah’s we ate dinner and then went upstairs and took pictures and watched the new DVD she made! It is awesome! Yeah, then we watched movies and just talked. Today we woke up and talked. Beth had to leave kind of early, so it was just us 3. We ended up playing wii! It was so much fun! Then me and Rhonda had to leave at noon. I get home and take a shower and then we go over to the Smith’s for their daughter’s birthday party. Boring! I texted with Delia and Tabitha called me while I was over there. After that we came up here to the lake and Eddie was riding his atv around so then I got to ride on it and Aaron came over and we hung out with him. Aaron showed Eddie the trails he had behind his house. During that I called Rhonda and told her about all this. So, I kept getting atv rides from Eddie and then would talk to Aaron in between rides. It was pretty good. I asked him what he did today and he said he sat in a room and turned the heat up so he’d get hot. Idk??? It sounded weird. And his hair hasn’t grown any yet. Which kind of makes me mad. Because losing the cutie flip with his hair was a bad idea. That’s what I think at least. So, I told him about playing wii this morning and he said he had a wii!! And I told him he should bring it over and he said sure. So, we go inside and wait for 45 minutes. He doesn’t show up so me and Eddie walk over to his house and ask him if he’s coming over and he says no, his parents just got home, and he wants to spend time with them. Hmph. But he added he’ll be over tomorrow. I don’t think he’ll come over. But whatever. He can lie to us all he wants because I officially don’t have a crush on him anymore! But I can still daydream about him, right?
Present day me: this entry makes me laugh. He was so cute until he got that damn haircut. Then his attraction level plummeted.
