I had a busy but fun weekend! I can't lie, I feel pretty cool when I'm all social and go out and do things because I'm not the most social and exciting person in the world. Plans changed a littleeee bit but I still had a lot of fun!! Saturday was Larissa's ~going away~ party as I said, and even though I got attacked by bugs which of course freaked me the hell out anddd my legs got eaten alive by mosquitoes, it was fun! I got to see Alex like I said, which is always happy times because she is awesome and I don't see her nearly as much as I wish I could! Also it's still cool to think "haaay you were an internet friend last year! Now we're real friends!!" Exciting stuff. I ended up not sleeping over Larissa's house afterall, but that was just my choice because it was just too busy of a weekend and I didn't want to overdo it. I ended up staying with Larissa and Alex later than the party, along with two of her friends that I had just met that day named Christina and Nelson. They were nice. And nerdy. I had fun with them and added them on Facebook. YAY new friends!! Nelson was semi-annoying and hit on me a few times which was awkward, so it made me happy that if I ever saw him again it would just be a once and a while sort of thing. I definitely don't think he's someone I could hang out with alllll the time. ^^; He hit on me in such a...odd way, too. He told me at one point that I had really pretty feet. How do you even answer that? Thank you? Cool? I know? He was nice, though, all things considered. And I like it when new people that I meet are outgoing because I tend to feed on other people's energy so it helps me a lot. The way the other person acts with me determines if I'm gonna be a shy blob or a normal functioning human being. :P I ate so much at Larissa's party! Had a hot dog, chicken, potato salad, some chips, watermelon, a doughnut, and then at the end of the day we went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. Foooooood. :9 I think if you get to eat a lot of food and all of it was good, then the day can't be that bad! I missed Alex when the day was over!!! I wanna invite her back to Long Island soon so she could spend time at my house and I could see her face some more. :3
Sunday was my chill day, and Monday was back to adventures~! It was Kevin C.'s annual 4th of July party!!! The 4th of July is another holiday that I don't really like... I am probably just a grouch, but truthfully I think it's kind of annoying. I love fireworks, but they are only nice if they happen during a show that you were planning on watching. If you're relaxing at home and fireworks are going on outside it just sounds like gunshots and UGH shut up. So it's good that for the past few years I had a planned place to go on the 4th of July so that way I could see fireworks for real and enjoy the holiday without being cranky! Larissa went this year too, this was the first year that she went. Kevin has such a nice pool and house ahhhh I want to kick his family out and live there myself. :X I didn't get to swim in his pool as much as I wanted to, though, so I think I might just have to invite myself over again rudely to see that pool again. ;D Weirdly enough I didn't talk to Kevin C. that much during the party because he invited a lottt of friends over. We also didn't get to go up on his roof to watch fireworks!!! :( Which was disappointing because that's always my favorite part! There were too many people at the party this year and not everyone would have been able to, so Kevin's parents didn't want anyone to do it. I guess it was fair but awwww that part is always the most fun!!! Hopefully we'll be able to next year. It wasn't toooo bad, though, because my friends and I set up in the back of the yard to see the firework show. And it was still pretty! Larissa took a lot of pictures because I still don't have a good camera, so I stole them and put them up on Facebook!! Not gonna post them here, but if you're my friend on there feel free to check them out!
Todaaaaaaay I went driving!! For the second time ever! Only the first time I drove it was kind of more of a "hurr derp let's do this for lulz", this time was actual learning. Everything is weird! Even putting on my seatbelt felt weird because I'm just not used to anything. My mother, of course was a nervous wreck which made me nervous so I hope she can calm down to teach me. ^^; Nervousness is not gonna help me learn! I guess I did okay? I didn't even play with the gas yet. I was just learning the breaking and how the car rolls and the feel of the wheels. We practiced in the parking lot of this park. I found out that I am naturally good at parallel parking! I was driving in a straight line from one end to the other, parking in a spot and then reversing to turn around and do it again, and I am apparently good at straightening my wheels because everytime I pulled into a spot I was straight and right in the middle! Without even trying to! Yay! At least I'm naturally good at something. I think I should be okay...I'm just not used to anything and that's what made it hard. Once I learn the feel of the car I think everything else will come naturally for me and I'll (hopefully) be good at it!! It's uncomfortable and foreign for me right now. Hopefully I could get it soon! I don't want to be bad at it like ~certain friends of mine. I want to learn fastttt. :( I'm not rushing, but I don't want to have my permit for years and years, y'know? I hope I can try again soon! If I'm good at straightening out my wheels for the very first time in the driver's seat then it's a good sign, right? I hopeeee. :X
-A friend that I never hang out with invited me to go bowling this weekend! Kevin L., Kevin C. and Cara were invited too but so were some people I don't know. I wanna go! I'm excited because I need new real life friends and new people to hang out with so this is good. Yay! Let's hope it works out!
-My dad is going to be off for the next 2 weeks... :/ Wish me luck with that. There have been bad times in the past. We have to go out to buy my mom a birthday present too so...I know that day will be a fight since it always is. Bleh. At least my mother planned some fun things for the week. We're going to see Cirque du Soleil on Wednesday and on Saturday we're going into NJ for that big flea market! I'm excited about those things!
And on a final note I saw a bunch of people on my f-list taking this so I copied and took it too! It's a personality pattern test. I'm posting my results and bolding what's true! Also going to post a link to the test there, if you're interested.( Collapse )
