Monday

This past weekend we went to Minnesota for Eddie’s baseball tourney. We watched one of his games and then Meryl, mom and I went to Mall of America. It was okay. I got some things from Bath & Body Works and some clothes from Delia’s. We went to Uncle Ron’s house and had dinner and stayed the night.

The next morning we watched his game, they lost so they didn’t have to play anymore. I went home with Dad and Eddie. Got home, called Rhonda and walked around the neighborhood for like an hour talking to her. Then I called Hunter and talked to him for two hours, then my phone died.

I got home and really wanted to hang out with someone so I asked Derek if he’d want to meet at the park, so we did. I told my parents I was walking around the neighborhood and met up with some people from school at the park but really I was walking all over the city with Derek. We walked to different parks and then downtown. He gave me a piggyback ride over two dirt patches in the road construction and carried me bridal style over another. We hugged when we parted. It was fun. He’s dirty, but easy to talk to. Today I went to work with Hunter. We had lunch break together, but we didn’t talk because the team leader and like eight other people were in the room. So yeah. He ended up getting done at 4:30 and then waiting for me til 5 when I got off. We went to Delia’s house to check on her cat. I told my mom I was going to Brad’s to play rock band. Then Hunter and I went to Arby’s and ate down by the river. We ended up sitting there until 11 talking about everything. We even talked about him and I in a relationship. He said he’d probably have to meet my parents to let this work and I’m thinking I agree, but they could still not like him. Soo yeah, we obviously like each other and it’s good. We hugged when we departed. 😊 and yeah, I told him about night games, maybe I’ll get some together tomorrow night and invite him. It could be fun, if I get cold, he could warm me up and of course we’d be partners so hello! We’d hold hands! Hehe, so I guess I’ll text with Derek. Last night we basically had text sex, he told me a fantasy, it was….interesting. Anyway, I’m going to bed smiling tonight.

G’night!

Present day me: I miss walking around the neighborhood talking on the phone with friends and seeing if I run into Derek hahahah.

Friday

Sunday – came home from the cabin.

Monday – work 5 to 9, scrapbooked.

Tuesday – frisbee! TGI Fridays & basketball.

Wednesday – scrapbooked and shopped with Meryl.

Thursday – mall with Paula and Garrett’s birthday.

Friday – cleaned and tanned.

Saturday – work?

So this past Monday at work, Hunter was there but we didn’t have break together. But I had break with Derek. He asked me if I had any plans for the summer. I said, nope just hang out with friends. He asked me if I had a boyfriend. I said no. He’s like, don’t want one? I said I do want one just haven’t found anyone. He asked if I think anyone at work is cute. I said I don’t know I haven’t really looked I’ve been out on the floor most of the time. He’s like, yeah. Derek is nice and friendly but not that cute and he talks weird. But whatever. During the closing time he held the door open for me and stuff so now he’ll probably try to get my attention since I’m single. Work should be interesting now. 😊 especially if Hunter might like me also. On Tuesday Delia, Harry, Garrett, Devin, Craig, Adam and Holly played frisbee and hung out at the soccer park. It was fun. We lost, but I basically just laughed the whole time. We were there for like four hours. Then Delia and I went to dinner at TGI Fridays, went back to her house and watched NCIS where the red light, yellow light, green light sexual harassment happened. Then we decided to have some guys over to my house to hang out, so Garrett, Brandon and Timmy came over and we played basketball, and that was fun, kind of awkward with Brandon. It’s been awkward with him. I think he thinks I still like him and I don’t so I guess I could just keep bringing up Hunter around him? Wednesday was overcast yet again. I took Meryl all over and I bought a wallet. It was a lazy day. Thursday was a good day. I went to the mall with Paula for a bit, we went and tried on dresses at Charolotte’s and Younkers, and went to the photobooth. It was nice to see her again. Came home and hung out with Delia. We made a cake for Garrett’s birthday, and some peanut butter brownies. We went out to Sonic for dinner, came back, frosted the cake and then went off to Garrett’s. we got to play Zombies with Garrett, Devin, Craig, Harry, Brandon, Timmy, Greg, and Billy. I had a lot of fun, we played outside and Delia and I just walked around, Greg was being really perverted and nasty with us two girls. And towards the end of the night Billy and Greg were flirting with us when those are the only two with girlfriends. I got home 15 minutes late because Harry got into my car, Craig freaked Delia out when she went to the other side of the car and Greg was flashing us and chasing after the car. It was fun. And today Opa is coming up for the weekend….yeah, strange. Whatever. And the sun is gone. ☹ I guess I’ll go and find something else to do.

G’bye!

Present day me: It’s fun to relive these memories and remember how many people I had around me and all of the shenanigans we got into.

Didn’t have to work today!

Today during school Brandon gave me a hug every time he saw me, which was nice 😊. And after school him and I went shopping and got stuff for Rhonda. It was good, none of that awkwardness and I felt like we were a couple kind of. He made fun of me in a flirty way, and we like had a good time. I took him home and then picked up Delia and we went out for dinner. It was really good! After that we went to Target and then Borders and then Garrett’s house with Harry and we learned to play poker! 😊 I took her home and got back home around 11. I had an awesome day. And Brandon and I have like three or four inside jokes, shit stick, blow job with your hand, you look so lonely in the rain – I’m hot – take your shirt off. This is our song – Hotel California. Any who I think and hope Brandon likes me, and maybe/hopefully will ask me out? Oh! And we went to Goodwill to get my check, while I was filling out my time off sheet in the break room I was talking to Derek, and later Brandon asked me who I was talking to while I was in there. Hehehe. 😊 so that’s about it. Tomorrow night is Rhonda’s birthday party!

<3 Ava Estelle 😊

Present day me: I remember learning how to play poker and thinking I was so cool!

Sunday

Had a good weekend! Friday: took Rhonda, Brandon, Samantha and Harry home. I took Samantha and Rhonda home first and then Harry. He owes me $5. And then Brandon last, him and I sat in his driveway for like half an hour and talked. We talked about this whole Hannah thing. And he asked me flat out, “What do you want?” and I said, “I honestly don’t know what I want out of this.” I wanted to change the subject and say I want him, but I didn’t, oh well. I went to work from 5-9:30 and saw a cute guy, he seems like a hick. And then I drove up to the cabin, jammed out to music all the way up. Turned the bass up all the way and totally rocked out!

Saturday: had a parade to go to for Meryl. Rhonda and I hung out and talked to her about work and her confirmation. After, Meryl and I went shopping for mother’s day and spent the rest of my money. I had a movie night, too. Beth, Grace, Maddy, Kayla, Delia, Craig, and Garrett showed up. We watched 10 Things I Hate About You, The Uninvited (good horror movie) and She’s the Man. We went outside at the end and took a few pictures and played basketball. Then today: went out to eat at Northwoods and had a relaxing day.

<3 Ava Estelle 😊

Present day me: I wish I was more confident in myself to talk to Brandon about our relationship instead of friend drama. I also really like how I had a movie night with friends and we managed to watch three whole movies!

YESTERDAY! Pretty great day!

I went to the mall with Brandon and Delia. I picked up Brandon at his house and we met Delia there. He wanted to get boxers, so we went all over. At Old Navy we found some with crabs on them, which I thought were so funny! And then we saw Hannah with Stacey! Weird, we thought Stacey hated her. They found us in Hot Topic. And Hannah stupid bitched with Stacey the whole two seconds we were talking with them. Brandon had gone to the back to look at stuff so us four girls were talking. Delia and I turned around to look for Brandon and those two just left without saying bye. It was awkward. We were walking down by Maurice’s and Riley (from middle school) comes up to us and gives us all hugs, she was with her boyfriend. That was weird, too. So, after the mall we went to Border’s. Brandon got a zombie magazine. Then we went to Target and looked at boxers there. There was a pair with “I <3 some girl’s name.” Delia and I are going to get that pair and put our names on it for his birthday along with the crab pair. After Target I had to take Bradon home because he was invited to go to Abby’s to see Gabby. Yeah. Bad, but he didn’t’ seem like he really wanted to go there. After that Delia and I were just driving around and we decided to go to Perkins. We picked up Andrea because we wanted a third person.

So we ate there and then went to Coldstone and sat in the car and ate our ice cream and talked, two people we knew were working at Coldstone, so that was kinda weird to see them. Then we went to drop off Andrea. We ended up staying there and talking for like two hours. And Delia helped me realize something about Brandon. We analyzed his past relationships and figured he had been pressured into all of them and I should talk to him saying that I don’t want to pressure him, I want to know what he’s feeling but I don’t want him to pull this “I don’t know how I feel” or “I have to think about it” because that isn’t a good answer. But whatever. I’m thinking of having him teach me how to play videogames – then we’d have something in common. 😊

Well that’s it for now.

G’night!

Present day me: The stupid bitch saying was used when one person would try and talk at the same time as another person, usually the end of the sentence or talking part. It made some of us laugh when we had a name for it and realized how much Hannah did that with everyone she was around. Brandon DID end up dating Gabby, after this date. So knowing he had spent all day with me and Delia, then seeing Gabby was telling…. This is a comforting entry to revisit as an adult. I had so much packed into one day!

Wednesday

Today was a pretty good day. I didn’t have to work! So I had a free day. (work is going pretty good, btw). So I went out to eat with Delia and Grace at Texas Roadhouse. It was pretty good. We talked about people and the guys and stuff. After we ate we stood outside for a little while and talked, and then Grace had to go home and clean so Delia and I decided to drive around, we got gas and then drove up by Rhonda’s house and ended up stopping at Brandon’s and talked to him for a while. So yeah. It was a good day. And I think hopefully Brandon and I will finally get to that shopping trip on Saturday. If mom and dad let me go. Of course. so yeah that’s about it for now.

<3 Ava Estelle

Present day me: I miss having so many friends to do things with and make memories with.

Sunday!

Another weekend gone by. Kind of a boring one. But didn’t have to go to the cabin! Yay! On Friday night (since I didn’t have any plans) Hannah and I went out. I drove and we went to Michael’s, Cold stone and the mall. It was good to just hang out with it just being the two of us. We went in the photo booth three times and to wet seal and tried on clothes. The whole time I was texting with Harry and Brad trying to get the low-down on where Brandon was hanging out that night. Turns out it was at Greg’s house. If it was someone’s house where I knew where they lived, then Hannah and I probably would of went over and crashed their party. But instead we hung out at the mall and I drove her home and we blasted music and rolled down the windows. And then on Saturday all 5 of us, my family, went to Aunt Brenda and Uncle Bill’s house for their son’s first birthday party. It was pretty boring. And today Meryl, Mom and I went to the mall and shopped. I handed in my applications and got new t-shirts. I had tried on a really hot dress at Yonkers and I put a picture of it on facebook and Brandon loves it. Hehe. I loved that dress too. But couldn’t buy it. Too bad. Maybe he will have a dream with me in it wearing the dress. 😊 hehe. Well I’m going to keep trying to get answers out of Devin.

G’night<3

Present day me: It’s comforting to read entries like this, just a regular weekend spent with friends and family.

Wednesday

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.

Thursday March 19, 2009

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.

Performance Day!

We had to get up at 6:30am! Got ready, loaded our instruments into the truck and drove to Pearl Harbor. We walked through the museum and went over to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial after we watched a movie about the attack on Pearl Harbor. I was excited to perform because we finally got to do what we came here to do. After we went to the memorial we ate boxed lunch out at a park by the U.S.S. Missouri where we preformed. There were maybe 10 extra people there who listened to us. So that performance wasn’t that great. We had a picture taken in front of the U.S.S. Missouri and then we got to take a self-lead tour of the ship. It was so hot that day and we felt so beat. Me, Rhonda, and Tabitha walked around together. And then we finally went to the Ala Moana shopping center to do our other performance. On the bus ride over we all were really excited and hyper. So when we finally got there it was really fun! After we performed we all went to Bubba Gump’s for dinner. I barely ate because I wasn’t hungry, surprisingly. Oh, and guess who I ate with there – Tabitha, Rhonda and Brandon hehe. He has hung out with us a lot on this trip. After we ate we got to walk around the mall and see what was all there. It was the same three who I walked around with. There were really expensive stores there, Rhonda went into a store and looked at the price of a pair of pants and it was $1,350!! Yeah. And we walked through a Japanese saver’s type of place which was kind of awkward but fun and yeah that was our performance day. 😊

Present day me: I remember the adrenaline we all had being able to perform as a high school band in two new places in one day! It was quite an experience.

Monday

This morning when mom was taking me to school, we were driving down the curved road and a van came the opposite way around the curve and slid across the street and hit the telephone pole. Mom and I saw it happen. We drove past him, and I saw that his air bag opened, and he was okay. Mom stopped to help him, and another guy stopped and called the police. They came, and mom took me to school. Then after third hour I heard from Samantha that Erin had been in a crash last night. She slid into a ditch and hit a tree. She had bled all over her seat from her head, which is stapled up now. She wasn’t at school today, so I was texting with her during gym. I just feel really bad for Erin and this guy from this morning. Otherwise, this past weekend was alright. Rhonda and I went to see Fired up! On Friday. It was really funny. Saturday, I went shopping with mom and Meryl. I got two new tank tops and a swimsuit bottom for Hawaii! Which is less than 3 weeks away! I’m SO EXCITED!!! Sunday we went to church. And I worked on my homework. Now I should write a letter to Aunt Brenda asking her for money for Hawaii.

Gnight!

<3 Ava Estelle 😊

Present day me: I remember being absolutely stoked that I had the opportunity to go to Hawaii with my school’s band with ALL of my friends! I miss having all of these friends as an adult.
