Today I talked with Brandon about this whole thing. He doesn’t want a girlfriend. But he said that he likes me and wants to hang out with me more. He’s had fun hanging out with me. Which is good. I think I still have a little bit of hope. Maybe over the summer something will happen? He also said that he just wants girls as close friends. It’s weird, we like each other but aren’t going out, partly because what I want in a relationship is different than what he wants, I think. But anyway, it was an okay day other than that. It’ll be interesting to see him tomorrow at school, if it’ll be awkward or okay. He’ll probably give me a hug, he gave me one in the car, but that was weird, his arm went right over my boobs. Oh well, that was my day. More later.
Present day me: I remember how disappointed I was when he and I finally talked about this. But I wasn’t surprised after all the other behavior he exhibited since the Hawaii trip and what other people had been saying to me about him and his escapades.

Last night was my last band concert ever! Yay! It was a lot of fun. Yesterday after school was really good. I took Brandon and Delia home. Brandon and I walked to my car, we talked about Rhonda. We drove back to the school and picked up Delia. We listened to Brandon’s zune. He has some strange music on that thing. Dropped him off. We went to my house to pick up some stuff and then went over to Delia’s. We stopped at Walgreens and I got eyebrow trimmers and bobby pins. I stopped to get gas and then got ready at Delia’s house. I wore her yellow skirt and a pretty dragonfly clip in my hair. We had brought a bunch of my scrapbooks over so we looked at those while we ate Culver’s for dinner. Then we went to the concert! We played first. Once that was done we got pie and went and looked at the art show. Brandon had a cool teapot. Tabitha had a pot thing too. There were a lot of cool pieces. Hannah had the painting of us four. Sort of awkward. She also had a self portrait. Really freaky. So I hung out with Delia, Brandon, Rhonda, Tabitha, Rayla and Brad. We took some good pictures. And afterwards Delia and I went to sonic and I took her home. Today it started raining in Ecuador. And I have to go to school tomorrow. It’s Rhonda’s birthday and I have to work. So yeah. That’s about it for now.

OH! And Erin and Nate are going out.
APRIL -> Bad friendship month.
MAY -> good relationship month! Hayley & Elliott, Erin & Nate, Devin & Kimberley, am I next??? Maybe???
Present day me: I really enjoyed being in band! I miss it nowadays. I remember taking lots of pictures that night and putting them in a scrapbook. The term, raining in Ecuador, means that my period started. Back then, I would have really heavy flow the second day and I would try to stay home from school every time.

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!

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.

Today I rode my bike down to the dog hut to meet Paula. She showed up and we walked over to the park. While we were walking, we heard a band playing, so when we arrived we walked over to the football field to see the concert band of my high school! So, I got to see Hannah, Bridget, Jessica and Erin. Then Paula and I went over by the big slides. We hung out at the playground for a bit. Then walked next to the lake looking for a place to dip our feet. We found one after a while then walked back to her house. We made peanut butter sandwiches with m&m’s and some mountain dew. Then we walked over to the middle school. We sat inside of door 1 and ate and talked for a while. Then we saw the principal get out of his car to come inside so we left. Got back to her house, watched Wayne’s World and then I left.
While we were walking back from the school we were talking about food and earlier I tried pickles dipped in mustard. So combined it’d be pustard!
<3 Ava Estelle
Present day me: lol, pustard. This is a cathartic memory where I was spending one on one time with a friend who went to a different high school than me. I’m really grateful for the friendship we continued with after middle school for a few years.

Last night I stayed at Rhonda’s house. It was fun. Her mom picked me up and we got to her house, then Tabitha showed up. We played cards and talked. Then Hannah came. We ate dinner, pizza. And talked about so many things! It was really good to hang out with my three best friends! Then we went on a walk to a school nearby. Took pictures and attempted to play cherry bomb. Then we walked to Shopko because Hannah and I had to go to the bathroom. We got back to Rhonda’s house around 9:30. Got into our pj’s and watched Step Up. I fell asleep during it. Then I woke up when it was over and we all talked, and fell asleep. Next morning we got up and left.
Present day me: I wanted to include this entry because it was a good memory with people I was once really close with. They weren’t able to come to my summer all nighter so this was a time to hang out and make good memories.

So, it is officially summer vacation! It’s been okay. The weather has been pretty crappy. Thursday was our last day of school. It was a lot of fun. We went to culvers for lunch, and we saw an old well beloved middle school teacher there! That was awesome!!! After school we went to Andrea’s bonfire and hung out there for a while. Rhonda had her first smore!!! Then Rhonda, Tabitha, Hannah, and Beth came over to my house to sleepover! I showed them behind the neighbor’s house with a path, creek, and bridge. Then we made Hannah a myspace and played Apples to Apples. I won friendly with construction workers! 😊😊 Yeah. We ended up going to bed around 1am. Got up, had pancakes, and drove Rhonda and Tabitha home. We also got to meet Hannah’s new dog! So cute!! Yeah, so the rest of Friday we went up to the lake, I scrapbooked and just chilled.
Saturday, we went to Uncle Ron’s house for his half birthday party. But mom didn’t go. I got to drive for the last 45 minutes home. It was really good. Then today we woke up at the cabin and came home. We went shopping while Eddie was at a birthday party. And just chilled. Yeah, pretty relaxing first few days of summer.
<3 Ava Estelle
Present day me: I remember being so happy we got to see that teacher we all had in middle school. He was known as being so kind, friendly and helpful for many students. Everyone wanted to be in his class! Getting to see him during our last day of our first year of high school was really special. I also remember making a myspace for Hannah. She didn’t have DSL at the time so I told her I’d help her get a myspace and she could check it at my house anytime.

So, I’m supposed to be reading Jane Eyre for English class. 87 pages by tomorrow and I’m only on 30 something. Oh well. So today was an alright day. I was at the cabin this morning. Mom and dad went for a walk so me, Eddie and Meryl were playing catch and batting out in the street and guess who takes a break from working on his car and comes out and tries to bat with us! Aaron! Haha, yeah. He tries like four times – misses! But gets one. Me and him didn’t really talk like at all. He doesn’t bring up any conversation. I feel weird asking him questions, I asked him how school was going. *stupid* and he said it’s going slow. He hates it and I said yeah, I know what you mean. So yeah. Ttyl.
Present day me: I think at this point I was way over Aaron and was surprised to have him try and bat with us. So I didn’t try very hard when he was around.
