That awkward moment when…

1. Your sorta-friend who called you screwed up wishes you “happy birthday” on Facebook – and messes up your age

2. Your friend took her senior picture, and has so much makeup on that she looks like a Barbie – and I don’t mean this as a compliment

Also, I MADE THE CHOCOLATE LAYER FOR MY ICE CREAM CAKE!!! It’s a bit runny – the freezer bowl must not have  been frozen enough, which is weird seeing as it was in the freezer for 12 hours!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Why I Don’t Like People: A Memoir

So… I mentioned in my last post that yesterday pretty much sucked. Let me tell you why:

1. I love hammocks. When I found out that Anna had one, I immediately jumped in it and expected a few minutes to lay and relax. Not likely. Anna and this little kid (read: brat) ran over and tried to push me out after about… 30 seconds of peace. I tried not to get annoyed, but it’s seriously hard when I AM WILLING TO LET THEM GET IN THE HAMMOCK but they just push me out so they can get on.

2.  I got out of the hammock and decided to go and have some quiet time in a recliner that they had. That was fun for about 1 minute before Anna started yelling at me, saying that I was “rude” for not wanting to talk 24/7. Oh, and the best part? The little kid started mimicking her. I’m sorry if I’m an introvert, and if you can’t get over that then why are we even friends?!

3. Anna wouldn’t talk to me for the rest of the night because I wanted to sit alone for 2 minutes.

4. When Anna, JB (her brother), JB’s friend, and I played LIFE (which started out fun)… she got in an argument with JB and quit and said “oh I’ll be just like Em and go sit off by myself and be rude. Oh by the way Em, you better find your own place to sleep and own way to get home“… okay I tried to explain the whole “I don’t feel like talking to people right now, I need a moment alone” thing, but we all know how that went.

5. After we finished LIFE (I won, even though I was behind the whole time), JB, JB’s friend and I played some card games. Hey, I would be perfectly fine with letting Anna play with us, but she just ignored us. Oh and here comes the best part. JB started hitting on me (and his friend did too, for that matter)… this is why I don’t like/trust guys. At least not the sleazes that live by me.

6. When we finished playing cards, I went into Anna’s room to apologize/get my pjs on. I asked her if she was okay, and she said yes… not true. Then I said “I’m sorry for acting like that earlier”… and I got a whole speech about how messed up I am. Anna started whining about how “I have issues with talking to people” and that I “need to get over it”. When I tried explaining that “I’m just like that,” she said that I shouldn’t be rude all the time. I’M NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE. I’m trying to get a moment alone, and is it really my fault that you were pushing me off of the hammock? I think not. Oh and then she said (about the whole hammock thing) “well that’s just how Devin (the kid that pushed me off the hammock) is… that’s how he tries to make friends”. First of all, you said I was screwed up for being me, and now you say everything’s fine when he’s being himself? Oh and seriously, if that’s how the little twerp makes friends, I feel bad for him, because he won’t have many at the rate he’s going.

7. When Anna and I went to the pool and I tried diving off the springboard, I must have twisted wrong or something. When I came up to the surface, my back hurt so much. I could barely doggy-paddle, it hurt that much. And when I said “Anna, my back really hurts. It hurts to move my arms!” I got a speech about how I need to “suck it up” and how “it’s nothing”… I could have broken my back, and yet she didn’t give a rat’s butt.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Photo a day: day 15

Day 15: Best-friends

Well, I was going to take a picture of me with my cat (proud cat hoarder), but he seems to have disappeared.

So instead I’m using this picture of me and Anna at the ski mountain! Skiing is pretty much what I live for during the winter months. And the summer months (when I reminisce about the good times and wish that it was December already)

Until next time, Em 🙂

I feel like this is going to happen and I’m going to yell “deja vu!” and freak everyone out

I had another weird dream last night. Here’s how it went down:

Anna and I were hanging out with her friend (who I didn’t know) and then Anna said she had to do something down the street. When her other friend and I went to see what she was doing, she was playing basketball with Swimmer! We were watching them, and then Anna asked me to help her play (because now some old lady was playing with Swimmer). Once I walked up to where they were standing, Swimmer walked away and didn’t come back. Sigh. Then, the old lady was talking about how her son? grandson? was our age, and she asked if she could take a picture of us (to show him? I have no idea). Then a bunch of guys walked over, and before they could say anything, I woke up.

Until next time, Em 🙂

My life in a nutshell…

I was innocently swinging (in the same greenbelt where that creepy guy was yesterday) when this really hot guy walked by with this mom. I was very much enjoying looking at his face when I realized that his mom was looking at me… great. I bet she told him that I was totally staring at him for a full 15 seconds. My life in a nutshell.

Also, this weekend I’m going to a church party with Lana, Anna, and this cute/smart/musical guy…. let’s see how this turns out. Related to that, apparently we’re starting a band at my church! My brother and I are going to play the cello and violin respectively, and the aforementioned cute/smart/musical guy will play guitar! Now we just need a singer, drummer, and bassist. Anna wants to sing with us, but let’s just say when she tried out for choir, the teacher actually cringed (she told me this)… I’m not sure how that’s gonna work out.

Until next time, Em 🙂

This is gonna be epic. Or just fail with epic style.

While writing that title, I realized that no, epicly is NOT a word. Sad but true.

Anyways, the day has finally come for me to do…. drumroll… LIVE BLOGGING!!! If you don’t know what that is, it’s pretty much when you write a blog post while doing something very important.

Backstory: yesterday I went to a concert and saw a kid who looked like Swimmer. And now I am going to tell Anna.

———————————————————————————————-

Em: “Should I tell my friend who knows him? She would laugh so hard!”

Shelly: “Yeah probably.”

Em: “What do I sayyyyyyyyyy?!”

Shelly: “I meant she would laugh really hard, but I suggest you don’t. Do whatever you want. My guess is because she is your friend she will try to help set you up with him.”

Em: “Oh I see. Here goes nothing!”

Shelly: “Bon chance!”

Em: “dkjskjsakncke”

———————————————————————————————–

Em: “I just saw a kid who looks just like Swimmer!”

Lana: “That is amazing.”

Em: “Haha yes! His hair looked just like Swimmer’s and I was like OH MY GOD I LOVE YOUR HAIR (but I didn’t tell him that!) Anyways should I tell my friend who knows him “hey I saw someone who looked like Swimmer yesterday!!!” or would it just be awkward?”

Lana: “You should!!!!!!!!!!”

Em: “OH MY GOD SHOULD I ACTUALLY DO THIS MY FRIEND JUST REPLIED”

Lana: “Say “oh the other day I was at a concert and I saw someone that kinda looked like Swimmer. Isn’t that weird?” or something like that”

———————————————————————————————–

12:27 – Starts typing: “I just saw this kid who looks just like Swimmer… creepy stuff going on with all of these look-alikes happening.”

*looking at my phone like it is going to blow up*

*send*

OH MY GOD WHAT DID I JUST DO HOLY MUSTACHES SHE IS GOING TO LAUGH SO HARD AND BE LIKE “WHY DO YOU CARE WHAT THE HAYSTACKS ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT” OH MY GOD…………

OH MY GOSH I SHOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT, WHY DID I DO THAT!!!!! MY HEART IS LIKE A FREAKING DRUM!!! NOOOOOOO MY LIFE IS OVER AS WE KNOW IT!!! GOODBYE CUTE CAT THAT IS LYING OVER THERE I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! GOODBYEEEEEEEEEEE

12:33 – This was a terrible idea. Plus the fact that I sent my message 10 minutes after she replied to my “dude!” message… not great.

12:38 – Still no reply. I’m gonna go do some homework. BRB

3:00 – YES! SHE REPLIED!

Em: “Dude!”

Anna: “Whattttt”

Em: “I just saw a kid who looks just like Swimmer… creepy stuff going on with all of these look-alikes happening.”

Anna: “Yeah or maybe you’re just seeing all the guys you’re in love with ;)”

(WAIT. SHE KNOWS?!)

Em: “Excuse me? Why would you think I’m in love with Swimmer?”

(Smooth, Em. Smooth.)

Anna: “I don’t know maybe because you’re seeing him everywhere.”

Em: “Uhh what I saw a kid who looked like him… but ok whatever floats your boat!”

Anna: “Haha and I see you didn’t deny loving Justin Bieber.” (I told her I saw someone who looked like him yesterday)

Em: “I don’t, it was just weird seeing his doppleganger.”

Anna: “Haha good use of a Vampire Diaries word.”

———————————————————————————————-

Well, that wen’t surprisingly well. Sort of. Anyways, today I dropped my dad’s phone (I was using his because I dropped mine and it got the white screen of death because it is a really cheap phone) and it now has cracks all over it… sigh. At least replacement screens are only like $10!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Story of my life…

“Janie wanted to ask Hezekiah about Tea Cake, but she was afraid he might misunderstand her and think she was interested.” (OH MY WORD, I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL! PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP ANNA AND I’S RELATIONSHIP CONCERNING SWIMMER!)

“‘Well, is he- he- is he got uh wife or something lak dat? Not dat it’s any uh mah business.’ She held her breath for the answer.” (UH YEAH THERE WAS DEFINITELY AN AWKWARD  SITUATION WHERE THIS HAPPENED TO ME LAST YEAR, MINUS THE WHOLE, YOU KNOW, WIFE PART)

-Their Eyes Were Watching God

Oh also, I was asking RJ about the guy she likes (Jadrian) , who is sadly graduating, and we had this highly stimulating conversation:

Em: “Is he popular?”
RJ: “He’s… captain of the chess team.”

Trust me, you had to be there.

Until next time, Em 🙂
