Tuesday

*SCARIEST DAY EVER!*

So, this past Thursday, the 16th, I was on this website called Speeddate.com and I gave this guy (decent looking) my aim screenname. He’s 18 and said he’s from the town near my cabin. So, I sent him some pics of myself over aim and he sent me some of him…. He then said he really wanted to talk to me on the phone. I gave him my number but only to text me. I told him to call me the next night. I’d be at the homecoming football game for the other high school in town. So that night I texted Tabitha and told her about it. And I was like really freaked out, I couldn’t fall asleep that night. I even had a dream that he came to my house to meet me.

So, the next day I came to school freaked out about him calling me. I told Rhonda about it, and I texted him asking if he could send me a pic of him. He did, it’s not the greatest. That night at the game I texted him asking when he was going to call me.

Him: my phone is dying, so maybe later

Me: how much later?

Him: IDK

Me: I might be with my boyfriend later

Him: Oh okay

Me: What about your girlfriend?

Him: Since when do you have a boyfriend? You were single yesterday

Me: Should I just call you?

Him: No, I’m mad at you. You lied to me.

Me: Okay, whatever you want.

So, I wait a couple hours. I had asked Kyle Cash to be my boyfriend for the night to tell him off. If he did call me. But since he wasn’t calling me, Kyle called him. He pretended to be someone else saying, “Who dis? Where you at?” It was really funny. By the end of the game, I kind of felt bad for treating him like that. So, I texted him.

Me: OMG! I’m so sorry! One of my guy friends had my phone and had sent you all those texts.

Him: Right

Me: I’m serious! I just got my phone back. I’m really sorry.

Then he called me, asked me why my guy friend decided to text him. I said he’s the only person on my list he doesn’t know. Then this stalker said he was in Milwaukee chillen with his buddies. He told me how cool they are except when there’s a drive by. I told him I had to go because I was going to get picked up soon. He didn’t text me until Monday.

Him: Hi

Me: Hey!

Him: What’s up?

Me: Not much, at school. You?

Him: at home

Me: oh fun…

Him: Oh very…

Me: haha so how’s your day been?

Him: good wbu?

Me: eh…it’s been okay.

Him: why just okay?

Me: just been a normal day nothing special.

Him: that’s fun. You wanna hang out after school?

Me: How? Where?

Him: after school and idk where

Me: Oookay…

Him: Yup where you live again lol

Me: (says town name) you’d drive here?

Him: exactly and I’m in (other town) that aint that far at all

Me: Sorry my friend Andrea said I can’t hang out with you

Him: Okay whatever bye

Then he calls me and asks why exactly I can’t hang out with him. I just tell him because my friend said I can’t. He then tells me he’s in my town! Yeah. I asked him where, he said by a high school and grocery store. That’s really freaking close to my house! So, I told him sorry, but I couldn’t today. He hung up, I texted him saying if he worked in his town. He told me to call him if he wanted to talk to him (we were at Tabitha’s house) so I did. He said he’s unemployed. So anyway, he was just being a really big jerk about me not hanging out with him. Tabitha and I talked about it after he hung up and I decided to call Aaron and ask him if he knew this guy. So, like at 5 I called Aaron.

THANK GOD he was home and THANK GOD he knew this guy. He said this guy is a freaky guy. Aaron thought he was gay, and he’s gotten in trouble for sexually assaulting a girl. And this guy has stolen stereos and tv’s out of people’s houses. I told Aaron about my little situation. So, I was like freaking out while I was on the phone with him…. anyway. I cancelled my account on speeddate and took it off of my facebook. I called Tabitha and Rhonda and told them about it. Yeah, and this guy texted me like an hour ago saying, “so your going to ignore me now?” I’m not going to call or text him ever again. And if it gets worse, I’m going to ask one of my guy friends to tell him off. Hopefully he’ll get the hint and just stop contacting me.

Yeah, well my hand hurts.

G’night!

Present day me: Wow, as a 29-year-old revisiting this entry it makes me laugh but also makes me feel cautious! I was lucky I had friends who were willing to help me in this situation. I knew I didn’t really want to hang out with him, but I also wanted attention from guys. So, this was a learning experience for young, naïve me. I got lucky!

Sunday 8:07pm

So, this past weekend was homecoming! Friday was spirit day at school, so everyone dressed up in their school attire and beads. I painted my nails while and purple. They looked so cool. Friday night was the parade and game. We marched in the parade, played Ghost Busters. It ended at the park, and we hung out there, had dinner and got in free at the game. It got really cold, Tabitha and I were freezing. We got hot chocolate, stood in the stands, and danced to the drumline and marching band. Midge hung out with me, Tabitha, and Rhonda. Dad picked me up from the game and I came home to Brenda, Bill, Elaine and John. I did a puzzle with Elaine. Then went to bed. The next morning, we went to the parade for the university and ate lunch at Erbert & Gerbert’s. I got home and got ready for the dance, curled my hair, painted all my nails white and took a few pictures.

Then went over to Erin’s. We get there, take pictures, and then go to Panera. Only me, Rhonda, Tabitha and Erin go to Panera because Hannah went over to Derek’s for dinner. We also went to Coldstone. Then mom picked us up to take us to the dance. We had to wait in line for a bit. The dance was alright. The music wasn’t that good. I got a few pictures. Then left with Erin around 11. I was so tired. And it started raining in Ecuador today. So, I might not go to school tomorrow. 😊

Present day me: The term raining in Ecuador meant it was my time of the month. My friends and I would say that to each other, except the country would be different for each person. I like revisiting this entry because it’s about a time in my life where friends were my top priority and we all had fun together.

Friday 9:48pm

So today was the football game against both of the high schools, and I couldn’t go. Aunt Bea, Uncle Gill and Preston came to the cabin this weekend. Grr, I was so mad, mom was lenient on it, but dad wasn’t at all.

So yesterday after school right at 3 o’clock I had an interview at Michael’s for a job as a cashier. It lasted an hour, it went really well, I think. I had to fill out a personal survey and that took me like 20 minutes. So, after that I just interviewed by a really nice, laid back lady. Everyone there was really nice and chill. I told her about how much I love scrapbooking and everything in the store. I also shared about the upcoming vacations in January and March. I was planning on going to Wal-Mart to pick up my pictures, but dad said he’d take me today. Did he? No. Another reason why I was pissed at him today.

Anyway, dad picked me up from school today. Took me home and I packed up. Eddie got home and I got to drive to the motel Aunt Bea and Uncle Gill are staying at. We met them there then showed them the way here.

Basically, all we’ve done is give them the tour, talked, ate dinner and Meryl and I went for a walk. Oh! And Eddie took me for a ride on Aaron’s trail. Yeah, pretty much boring here. I wish I could have gone to the game.

G’night.

Present day me: This entry is cathartic as a glimpse of my life when I had to do what my parents wanted me to do, to make the family happy rather than spend time with my friends at the high school football game.
