Sunday 8:02pm

Last night was Tabitha’s 15th birthday party. It was so much fun! We all got there around 7. I had made a cake, chocolate. There were 7 of us, Tabitha, Hannah, Rhonda, Bailey, Grace, Maddy and me. So, we just sit around her living room and all talk about stuff. Then at like 8:30 we must go to the grocery store to pick up more smores stuff and drumstix (ice cream cones) so Grace drives all of us in her van! We get to the store and kind of just all split up and get food. We knew this one fat guy who worked there, and he gave them the marshmallows and such. We took video and pictures while Rhonda, Bailey, Tabitha, and Hannah were buying the food. Grace, Maddy and I ran around the store telling everyone “Happy Saturday Night” that we saw. They didn’t like that very much. So, we get back to the cashiers and those four weren’t there so we wait next to the doors for them to come back in looking for us and three guys who look like seniors leave, they’re looking at us. We end up going out there and Grace is like, “They’re probably in the van, I left it unlocked.” Turns out they were. We all pile in and go back to Tabitha’s house. We unpack the drumstix and put in the CD that I made. We listened to the vagina song by the bloodhound gang. Then tried to find the music video on youtube but we found other *ahem* music videos. Then we ate my cake, and put chocolate frosting on our faces, took pictures, danced to the music. Then we kinda chilled out for a bit and played Never Have I Ever, right before Rhonda left. After she left, we all went outside and over to the elementary school nearby to play night games. We walk over to the playground and see three guys playing frisbee in the parking lot. Grace walks over to them and asks to play, then we realized they were the same guys who were at the grocery store. They said they were 22 and 23. We told them our real ages. Then they left, we just stand there on the edge of the grass. Then two guys and a girl come over to us and ask which middle school we went to. We walked away from them; they were smoking something. Grace yells back at them, “we’re from out of town!” they just insulted us while we were walking away. They were following us and then they left. We didn’t want to walk directly to her house, so we just stood by the batting net for a while and talked, then went and walked around her house the long way, in the shadows. We go back in and just sit and talk and chilled. We all went to sleep around 3 and woke up at like 8ish. And I was the last one there, we also had smores for breakfast. It was a really fun party!

Present day me: The town I grew up in had weird people in it. This memory was a fun one to revisit. I remember telling strangers “Happy Saturday Night” and my two new friends finding it so funny and entertaining to do. I felt so cool!

Monday

Actually, today all I did was read Breaking Dawn. I’m almost done! Umm, so last week on Wednesday I went to Brandon’s 16th Birthday Party. I hung out with Tabitha and Delia. It was a pretty good party. We played wii tennis and went down to this really small park. The girls and Brandon played 500 with a frisbee but instead of yelling numbers he yelled other things like, “free back massage from me.” We went back to his house and sat by a bonfire and had some smores.

So then on Friday I went to the mall with Paula and Rhonda. We went to Charlotte Russe, Younkers, Macy’s, deb and Ragstock. Tried on a bunch of dresses and took pictures. Then Friday night I went to Bridget’s house for some board game olympics. I was on the yellow team with Stacey. Then Delia and Bridget were on the pink team and Bailey was the only one on the green team because Tabitha couldn’t make it at the last minute. So, we played Guess Who, pink team won. Twister, pink team won. Sorry, yellow team was winning then pink won. And they were bragging and boasting. Stacey and I were getting really frustrated. But we kept playing. Catch Phrase, Clue, Apples to Apples – Yellow team won! (only game) and watched the show My Boys. I stayed up til 5 and fell asleep. Bailey slept too, but the other three went outside to walk around the block. I woke up at 8. Bailey had left already. And we played Sorry again, then mom came to pick me up. Some of my night was fun, but overall, it was pointless.

Present day me: I enjoy reading about these memories. They were fun times to remember as an adult! Even though board game olympics ended up being a losing streak for my team it’s still a fun concept to maybe try again with my current friends!

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.

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.

Saturday 11:42pm

Got in from a bonfire. Cathy and Hal are here along with Deb and Derek. Yeah, we made smores and pudgy pies. Today was an alright day. I did a bunch of scrapbooking and talked to Beth, Rhonda, and Tabitha on the phone. So yeah, I saw Aaron go over to Tori’s place but I’m okay with it. I’m finally not feeling depressed about it. Which is a big step for me. 😊 so, I got to drive out of town today! And back with mom! She said I did good. And then I got to drive back from the cabin with dad and Meryl. I like driving. And I don’t feel very tired. So, I’m not sure what to do. I can’t scrapbook because then I’d have to turn all the back lights on…oh well. My right knee hurts really bad from sitting like a frog for so long today. So tomorrow I’ll do more scrapbooking and homework. Whoo hoo!

G’night <3

Present day me: I used to sit with my legs outwards instead of inwards like a normal criss cross applesauce deal. It was comfortable for me, it helped me separate spaces on the floor when I did my scrapbooking. One space behind my left leg, next to my shin, and then my front space, then next to my right shin and lastly behind my leg. 5-6 piles of whatever I was working on and had to put in chronological order. It worked great! Nowadays, I can’t sit like that anymore and I can sit criss cross applesauce sometimes.
