Thursday

 Today was a pretty good day at school. We had a potluck lunch! I brought white cheddar pasta roni, Delia brought mac and cheese, Beth brought ramen noodles, we had bread, blueberry muffins, Nutella with rolls, cupcakes and cookies. So good! And we had a Spanish test, which I think I did really good on! Yesterday Bailey and I finally went to Sonic! We got large slushies and large tater tots. She drove and we didn’t go over the curb when we went through the drive thru. Which was a victory! It was her first time going through a drive thru. She did good. Oh! And David has been texting me lately, which is fine. I still want to be friends with him. I gave him Hannah’s number because he asked for it. So, he texted her last night too. I guess he thinks she’s really cute and well who (out of all guys) doesn’t? anyway, I’m glad me and him are friends. I kind of feel like I want to hang out with him again…. maybe. But I don’t know where and when and with who exactly. Who knows… the night before last night Rhonda had a really funny dream about her and Cameron and then me and Nathan. We were in a contest to not touch each other for three hours and we had to stand a foot away from each other and the prize was a night at the  hotel. Nathan and I couldn’t handle not touching each other for three hours so we went away. So, Rhonda and Cameron won. Hannah comes in holding a cat in her arms. Nathan and I come back and told everyone Nathan bought the hotel. Let’s go party there! Hannah said, I want to come! I told her it was couples only. She holds up the cat and said, I have a boyfriend! Meet Ginger! SO FUNNY! Rhonda had another dream that Nelly got pregnant, so she told Rhonda and her first words were, “CAKE AND ICE CREAM!” hahaha yeah. I’ve laughed with Rhonda SO MUCH these past two days. We talked about “pickle” juice today. Pretty great thing to talk about. Haha. G’night!

Present day me: This entry is basically a collection of inside jokes and good memories. This was right before I would get my first job and things changed a lot.

Saturday

This past week was a really long one and lots of things happened. On Wednesday night Hannah called me and I told her all about how many girls who I hang out with don’t like her anymore. They all think she’s a slut. So, I wanted to tell her the reality of the situation. While she’s sitting at lunch with Tommy and Derrick and other nasty guys, everyone at our table is dissing her and calling her names. Anyway, I tried to tell her about it as nicely as possible. What Rhonda had found out – pretty much everyone that we had hung out with at the dance doesn’t like her. So, it wasn’t looking good for Hannah on our end. But when I told Hannah everything she listened and understood. She said she wasn’t/isn’t very close with these girls. She had met them just this school year, which is totally true. And that doesn’t really matter to Hannah what other people think, just as long as she has a good relationship with each, Tabitha, Rhonda and me. Which is good. But while this little stressor was going on for Rhonda and I and Hannah something else happened.

While (one day) Beth and Hannah were working out at the Y together, Beth had asked her how far she’s gone with a guy. Hannah told her some things had happened up at Jared’s cabin between her and Jared. Tabitha and I were the only ones who knew about that. But Beth went up to Jared and asked him about it and he said nothing had happened at all. He lied. Hannah would not make up those things just for attention or the hell of it. She didn’t want to tell Rhonda because she didn’t want to see/know Rhonda’s reaction to it. But Beth talked to me and Tabitha about it during lunch one day with Rhonda right there. My only thought was how the hell did Beth find out about that?! So, Rhonda figured it out and was really disappointed and hurt that Hannah didn’t tell her something that important. And the fact Beth knew before her pissed her off a lot.

So, Rhonda finding all that out changed the way she looked at Hannah. I told Hannah that Rhonda had found out about it and was really hurt and mad. So, Wednesday night I also talked on the phone with Rhonda realized it seemed like Hannah was treating her like a secondary friend not a best friend. There are many explanations. I don’t need to write them all down. But the next morning before school, Hannah and Rhonda talked about it all, I walked with them. It came out to seem like Rhonda didn’t want to be her friend anymore or to just take a break, which I did not want to happen at all. But it wasn’t the best conversation between them. Hannah was all apologizing and Rhonda’s tone wasn’t helping the situation. I didn’t say a word the entire time. Just listened. During band I told Tabitha about everything, and Samantha listened in. Later at lunch Hannah looked really sad, and Rhonda didn’t want to talk to her because she might say something wrong or it might just be a repeat of the conversation that morning. So, I went over to Hannah and I asked her if she’d want to walk. I told her “Rhonda is hurt, and at the moment doesn’t want to talk to you because she can’t look at you the same.” I could tell Hannah was really sad about it. But to just give Rhonda some time to cool down and think it over more. After school that day Rhonda and I were talking, and she asked me what my opinion was of her reaction and Hannah’s actions. I told her I thought she was overreacting a little bit, but I understand how she felt. I understand both sides of them. If I was Rhonda I would have reacted the same way, but not talked to her as harshly as Rhonda had. I had told Hannah that I’ll be her friend no matter what and I would be there for her whenever she needed. Which helped. Thursday night we had pep bad. I gave Tabitha a ride and asked her what her opinion was of the situation. She said she understood both sides but doesn’t want to be involved in it. (Like I was, right in the middle of the two of them) and I think Tabitha was in a good spot. She knew she wasn’t as close with us at the moment because she’s been really busy with basketball. Friday morning Hannah and Rhonda walked and talked without me there. Which was good because they worked everything out and their fight was over. And I was really happy about that, well ecstatic. After school yesterday, Hannah, Tabitha and I went to Starbucks and talked about it some more. We said how much high school drama sucks and how out of hand it gets. Especially with the people who we’re friends with.

New rule – don’t tell Beth anything that you’d want passed around to people, who especially don’t need to know. And know who your true friends are because they can help you get through everything. And that is so amazingly true. So, we came up to the cabin last night and that’s where I am right now. I rearranged my things on my walls in my room and moved my bed. I’m reading Breaking Dawn for the second time and in love with it! I SO want a boyfriend right now!

So, I guess this notebook has come to an end. ☹ too bad. now I have to start another one haha. But I like writing in journals and looking back over it years later and see how much I’ve changed. So, I guess this is good-bye! There is some juicy stuff in this journal that’s for sure! The first half of my sophomore year of high school! Aww! Well, cya!

Present day me: this is just the beginning of high school drama between all of the girls….

Saturday

In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!

Me, Meryl, Eddie, Mom, Phoebe and dad woke up this morning at 3:15 to get on our flight to here at 6:30. Well we flew from Minneapolis to Denver then to here. We arrived at 12:30pm. We got a taxi ride to the hotel and met everyone else. It was a pretty good first day of vacation. The hotel is the nicest we’ve ever stayed at. The room’s balcony (which I’m sitting in right now) is massive. We could fit like 20 people on here. It even has a jacuzzi! The rooms are way nice too. Both bathrooms have tubs as well as shower stalls. As soon as we got to the hotel we unpacked and went out to the pool to meet everyone.

Eddie, Meryl and I walked on the beach. We can’t go swimming because there are bad rip tides. So, we all got food and hung out at the pool. Then everyone except the grandkids went grocery shopping so we hung out with Meredith and Susie. Meredith and I ran around the whole hotel. They came back, we ate and then all us girls went down to the firepits and took some pictures. Aunt Margot showed us the dark room and I took a video of it. It’s pretty awesome. So that’s it for now. Oh, and it’s raining in Ecuador until Monday. But oh well. At least it didn’t start on Monday. So, I’ve been up for like seventeen hours.

I only got three hours of sleep last night because I went to Ashley’s sledding party. Which was really fun! A great thing to do the night before I leave. So yeah. I guess if you don’t want something, no I mean if you think something is going to go badly and you’re not excited about it, then it will actually not be that bad. So, I’m thinking this could potentially be the best vacation yet!

G’night!

Present day me: This might’ve been a vacation I wasn’t excited for because I was so involved with my friends and spending time with them.

New year! 😊

Last night I went to Grace’s party at her house. It was a lot of fun. I gave Tabitha a ride. We played ping pong, air hockey, guitar hero and just hung out. As soon as it was midnight, (we all had our cups of sparkling cider in hand) Grace shot her hand up and hit my glass and it spilled all over. Great start to 2009. And like five minutes later someone, I think Craig, spilled his drink next to me. Yeah. I gave Tabitha a ride home and stayed at her house because mom, dad, Eddie, and Meryl went down to the Phillips for new year’s. We stayed up til 3 watching the Hannah Montana movie. Yep, and today I just lounged around. Mexico is the day after tomorrow!

Sunday

So, my Christmas/new year’s party was last night. It was more of a get together than a party. Only 6 people could come. Tabitha, Hannah, Rhonda, Paula, Ashley, and Kyle. I had fun though. We all got here and played apples to apples – kind of a slow game. We kept trying to call Aaron, but nobody was answering so after a little while me, Paula and Rhonda walked over there. The dad was outside, and I asked if Aaron was home. He’s like, “They’re inside.” (Tori’s car was in the driveway) so we go up to the door and knock. And his dad says we can just go in and make a lot of noise. So, I open the door and we come in. I say hello. But it wasn’t loud enough. Paula and Rhonda yelled Aaron! At the same time, we thought they were in the basement so we were really yelling down the stairs, but they came in through the kitchen (I’m guessing) and Aaron’s hair was all messy and I could tell Tori had just put her shirt back on. They seemed surprised to see us. They’re like, “Hi,” Tori said hi to me. I felt like a little kid, I’m like, “Do you want to come over to play apples to apples?” they said they’d be over in 20 minutes. And they never showed up. Shocker! So, we played guitar hero and DDR. Heavy with four people. It was sweet! We ate dinner (lasagna) oh and Ashley left like right before dinner. We watched the house bunny and Jeff Dunham. Hung out for a bit and then Kyle left at 11. We stayed up til 3 talking and laughing. Paula left at 9. And the other three left at noon. And I just was bored for the rest of the day. Yep!

G’bye!

Present day me: This is the first time I’m remembering this moment of going into Aaron’s house. I could not believe this happened until I read this entry twice. Hah.

Sick yesterday only went to school three days this week!

So, after school today I had a girls night out with Hannah! I drove to her house, picked her up and we ate dinner at Coldstone! Then got drinks at Panera. We visited the mall for a bit and then went to the school for the improv show. It was so funny! Then I drove her and I back home. We uploaded pictures and she left. I had an awesome night! She’s my first friend that I’ve driven with! Whoo!! Yeah, so I had a lot of fun tonight. We jammed out to the radio.

I’m going to go to bed. I have band practice tomorrow. Yawn. Oh! And St. nick comes tonight!

I LOVE DRIVING!

<3 Ava Estelle 😊

Present day me: This was a fun time with Hannah. We went to the mall and bought more candy to get hyper on. Oh, those were the times….before responsibilities and you could just have a great night eating candy with your friends and singing loud to the radio.

I GOT MY LICENSE!!!!

I passed my test this morning! Last night I stayed at Hannah’s with Tabitha. It was a ton of fun! We talked a lot, watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 and had Ice cream and hot chocolate. We even prayed together. We sang Hannah Montana songs and just were really hyper. I couldn’t pick up Tabitha today to take her somewhere because I’m not on the car insurance yet. Grr! But I got to drive by myself from dad’s office to home and from the car fixer to his office. And I picked up Meryl from church. I’m SO happy I passed!!! Now I just need a job and I can do whatever I want!

G’night!

Present day me: This was a lovely day! Great memory when I passed the driving test and was able to drive alone finally!

This past Friday I went to see Twilight with Hannah! It was a lot of fun. Good movie! Edward got hotter through out the movie. But I don’t think Kristin Stewart did that great of a job. She wasn’t really enthusiastic as Bella. But it was good, I want to watch it again! Saturday morning I had my last drive time, and it went well! And I babysat last night and made $30! Today stayed home, finished scrapbooking my pictures from summer, cleaned out the car, and chilled out. That’s pretty much it.

<3 Ava Estelle

Present day me: Yes, I loved Twilight and all the movies and all of the books. Read the books twice I think. I don’t plan to read them as an adult. As of now, anyway.
