A lot of things have happened since the last time I wrote in here. Last weekend, a guy at work, named Hunter caught my attention. 😊 yeah, and on the way home from work last Sunday I was at a stoplight to turn left, he was two lanes over and when he passed we made eye contact! And we had break at the same time, but didn’t talk because there were two other ladies in there. And this whole Brandon thing – I don’t like him anymore. It’s weird that I go from one guy to another over a weekend, and I don’t feel guilty at all. So this past week was the last week of sophomore year. It was an okay one. Monday – went to Nelson’s for lunch. Tuesday – ordered Green Mill. Wednesday – Kwik trip with Rhonda, Craig and Brad. Thursday – Culvers with Andrea and Tabitha. I took pictures almost all days, in every class. Thursday night we played night games up by Brandon’s. There were five girls and all the guys. Wasn’t as good as the last time. I was partnered with Brandon though, which was fun. Friday I went out to Panera with Delia and then went to her house to work on the end of the year slideshow – which is amazing! Then we went to Andrea’s party. There were only five girls there too and a bunch of guys. Delia and I stayed over and now I’m at the cabin. Today was a lazy day. And now my hand hurts.

Memorial Day Parade
Hot, but good. Saw Paula for a split-second right before the ceremony and took a bunch of pictures with everyone.
Long, hot and boring.
Walked home after the ceremony, work went by really fast. Was an alright shift, had break with this cute, blonde guy named Hunter. He seems shy though.
Delia’s cook out
To be there for the last two hours was fun. There was Delia, Ashley, Kayla, Bridget, Taylor, Brandon, Harry, Garrett, Brad and Devin. I got a piggy back ride from Harry and Brad. We played badminton, volleyball and basketball. I had fun. Brandon wasn’t all over me, he mostly was with the guys and Delia, her party, her house. I still had fun. I came home, worked on homework and am about to go to bed. 8 days of school left, gotta get a B average. Wish me luck.
<3 Ava Estelle 😊
Present day me: This is a good memory! This was a jam packed day too and it was awesome to get all these things done.

Just got back from Rhonda’s birthday party. It was an awesome party! I took Andrea and we went early, set up streamers and hung out until everyone got there. There were a lot of people there! We hung out in her backyard and played games with balls and played zumies. It seemed like (to me) Brandon always made sure where I was, and at first he stood by me a lot. I had him warm up my hands a few times. 😊 and he was wearing a ton of Phoenix. I could smell it from two feet away. Yeah. We had cake, pizza, played apples to apples, except Harry, Garrett, Dan, Delia and I played poker. After that a bunch of us went outside. Brandon and I were locked outside together along with Taylor, Craig and Garrett. Later I ended up being the only girl out there so Harry and Brandon carried me back to behind a bush. It was so weird, but kind of cool. I just end up spending a ton of time with Brandon and right before they carried me, Brandon was sitting on the bench and I sat down next to him and he put his arm around me. 😊 cute! So yeah, I’m thinking everyday him and I get closer. Which is exactly what I want. I gave him a ride home everyday this past week too. Soooo, let’s hope he’s not very oblivious to any of this. And please God, help him ask me out! 😊 because c’mon it’d be P-E-R-F-E-C-T!
Amen & Good night!

Present day me: I remember having so much fun at Rhonda’s party. I took so many pictures with everyone and just enjoyed being around Brandon and everyone else.
March 18, 2009 & March 19, 2009
Tabitha and I woke up at 6:00 am to go snorkeling, AND I wore a tampon for the first time! Snorkeling was a lot of fun! I hung out with Tabitha, Abby, Brandon, Brad, Craig and Devin. While we were in the water we saw turtles, eels, many fish and we saw dolphins swimming all over and jumping around. Sadly, I didn’t have my camera with me. After that we walked back to the hotel and got ready for the hike up to Diamondhead. Tabitha and I just booked it all the way to the top, took pictures and then walked down. It wasn’t that bad of a hike and the view was SO AWESOME!! We got to the bottom and rested with everyone else, drank water and just chilled out. Then we came back to the hotel and had free time until 4. We went to the beach and I got a smiley face on my tummy, it looks really cool! (with sunscreen and burnt skin) And we did some shopping. I finished buying stuff for everyone and then we went back to the hotel to get ready for the Beach BBQ. Both the guys and girls learned how to hula – pretty funny. And we just had a fun, relaxing last night. We all took pictures on the beach and then the four of us, (Tabitha, Rhonda, Hannah and me) went shopping. We stopped at the hotel to pick up Hannah and get our money first. It was a good night to spend with them. Brandon and I talked a lot and we had fun together while Rhonda was on the Diamondhead hike with Delia and Bridget. They talked about me liking Brandon. They said that they’ve noticed but they’re not mad, just told Rhonda that I shouldn’t get my hopes up because he’s all over too many girls. I know that. But they also said that he has actual feelings for more than one girl at a time. So that makes a ton of sense. I think I just have a crush on him and because I know who he is and his past and present I’m not going to go out with him because it’d be weird and I would probably turn into a really jealous girlfriend. So we went shopping in the marketplace and during that we met up with the rest of our group. Brandon hung out with them and the four of us spend some time together. Hannah and Rhonda got henna tattoos so during that Tabitha and I were sitting out on a bench and two guys come up to us and asked us to make out with them and to do drugs basically. It freaked both me and Tabitha out. So we went in and told the other two about it and then called the guys to see where they were, but they weren’t by us. So, we darted back to the hotel and invited the guys to our room to play cards. By the time the guys got here it was almost 11 so we just talked. I was laying on my bed with my hands on my sunburnt stomach and then Brandon was sitting on the bed, but then Hannah and Devin who were also on the bed got off so Brandon and I were the only ones there laying together. Except he was at the end parallel to the pillows and I was perpendicular to the pillows. Rhonda was looking at both of us and giving me a big smile. After the guys left Rhonda shouts, “Your head was right next to his dick!” it was so funny.

The four of us ate at iHop for breakfast! And we’ve been packing all morning. We sat on the beach for a while (just the girls) until the guys came and then us three went to starbucks and went back to the hotel to finish packing and leave.
Present day me: I wish I could relive these experiences again within my lifetime.

Day 3 in Hawaii!
Saturday night we arrived in Hawaii around 5:30pm. It’s 5 hours earlier here than Wisconsin, so we had a 23 hour day on Saturday. We got to the hotel (crappy compared to Mexico) and unpacked, before we could get into our room, which is #869! We had to go down to the lobby twice! Because our keys weren’t working. But we made it in, unpacked and went out for dinner. We were all starving and just wanted something light and easy, so we ate at subway! Haha. Right before we entered subway we saw the guys, (Brandon, Craig, Devin and Brad) and we ate with them. The guys left for the hotel earlier than us, so we had some creepy Hawaiian guys make creepy remarks to us. We made it back to the hotel and finished unpacking. Talked a whole bunch about Beth and Nate (she’s ignoring him) Hannah and Kyle (he was kind of ignoring her) AND I told them that I like Brandon. And I think he likes me too. While we were in the San Franscisco airport Brandon was sitting next to me with a notebook and he drew me as wonder woman! Haha. He didn’t draw anyone else and then when we met the guys at subway it seemed like Brandon just saw me and he decided that he wants to hang out with us to eat. All three of them were happy when I told them that I like him. My feelings for him aren’t strong, yet. But that could change.
So yesterday we woke up and got ready to go on the Best of Oahu Half-Day Tour. We were on our original 3 buses taking a tour and seeing/stopping to take pictures at Diamond Head Crater from the outside – Kahala – Hawaii Kai – Hanauma Bay – Halona Blow Hole – Famous Beach called Sandy’s – Makapuu Point – Waimanalo – Pali Lookout. I got some good pictures with everyone and some good scenery shots. We got finished up with that around 11:30. And we had the rest of the day of free time! So, we went to the beach! We all changed into our suits and walked down there with our big group of friends. We went swimming and tanned. It was amazing to be in the ocean with my friends instead of my family. Brandon, Tabitha, Rhonda and I swam way out to a sandbar over a ton of rough rocks which I hit my leg on coming back. I kind of tried to swim by Brandon most of the time. 😊 and on the way back I complained to him how my leg hurt, and he picked me up and carried me through the water. Rhonda and Tabitha saw, and Rhonda made a face. But he ended up dropping me and I got water up my nose. After we went swimming and tanning for a while we were starving because we had no food that whole day. So, us four, and six other girls all walked down to a restaurant called Cheeseburger in Paradise. It was really good. After that Hannah, me, Beth and Abby walked on the beach and took some pictures and then we had the Waikiki scavenger hunt. I was in a group with Brandon (cool!), Erin, Abby and a girl from gym class. The whole thing was pretty lame I talked mostly with Abby and Brandon. And by the time that was over, I was totally out of it. I desperately needed sleep. So, Tabitha ended up finishing first out of the four of us so I had to let her into our room when I got back and we ended up talking about a bunch of stuff. I was glad that I got to hang out with Brandon but It wasn’t like a total flirting session. We were just buddy-buddy because I was so exhausted. So yeah.
Present day me: this is fun reading about a band trip to Hawaii that I have lots of good memories of.
June 9. 2007
I just woke up twelve minutes ago. But I just wanted to write about the last couple of days. Thursday, the 8th grade class went to an amusement park two hours away! It was so awesome!!! I hung out with Tabitha, Courtney, Rhonda, and Brit. The first ride we went on was the Extreme Swing. Me, Courtney and Rhonda went on it, if Brit would of went on it, Tabitha would of….but whatever. We went on more rides, ate lunch then went on some roller coasters. 😊 I love rollercoasters and Tilter and Scrambler! That was pretty much the Thursday.
So, yesterday (Friday) was the last day of school! 😊/☹ I was happy for no more homework and then sad for no more friends. Well, in the morning right away, we got our class 2007 t shirts! They were ugly. (gray with blue lettering. All our names were on it though!) We all went to the cafeteria for signing of things and breakfast. Then went to the auditorium to watch Happy Feet! I love that movie A LOT! 😊 After the movie we got into groups and went in stations around the 8th grade house. That whole thing was kind of boring…but oh well. After that was lunch, we ate outside in the back of the school! Then we went to the front of the school to DANCE! And of course, take pictures. <3 my hobby!
After the “8th Grade Celebration” we all went into the auditorium to watch the slideshow. EVERYONE started crying…surprisingly, I didn’t cry at all. I gave lots of people hugs. That was the last day of middle school. <3
Present day me: I remember this day and how bittersweet it was. Some people were crying much more than others. The situation was, after this school year due to the school zones in our city, our class was being split in half basically by going to different high schools in the fall. I had friends going to my high school and had friends going to the other high school. It was sad because I knew it’d be more difficult for us to stay friends being in different schools, and different parts of the city. Some of my friends felt like our class was one big family and I felt that way too. I remember getting along with pretty much everyone that I had classes with. I made a lot of memories with the friends I had in middle school. During high school and after I’ve stated I’d go back to middle school again over any other time in my life. The days and times were just so much fun, and everyone had a good time! When I’d bring my digital camera to school, I’d get pictures with classmates that I’d never thought cared to be my friend, but they did! I made more friends with my creativity and openness. Wow, I’m missing that time.
Anyway! Thank you for reading my entries! The rest of this year and the following years will be my high school time and many different things will be happening!
