The topic of this picture makes me feel blue… homework. My teachers assign so much homework it’s not even funny. Megan got assigned 12 questions (each question should be answered with a paragraph of 8-10 sentences) and a bubble map, due the day after it was assigned. Yeah, really.
Today at service, Mimi, Megan, Christy and I saw this super-cute guy walk in. And of course he helped sort things with Megan’s mom. And they chatted it up. Apparently he was looking at us the whole time we were volunteering! Right before we left, we went to help Megan’s mom and we started chatting with the cute guy, I’ll call him Ben. He asked what school we went to and Megan’s mom answered and told him what grade we were in…. apparently he’s a freshman in college and HE WAS INTERESTED IN US! And it just got better. Christy was telling us about her birthday which is coming up, and Ben exclaimed “Oh when’s your birthday? June 29th? Darn, mine’s June 22nd!” So now we know his name, what grade he’s in, what college he goes to, his birthday, and one of the classes he’s in (he has to do service to fulfill a requirement). Now all Mimi and I have to do is look him up on Facebook and voila! Oh and after service, when we were talking about Ben, Megan’s mom exclaimed “if I had known you liked him I would have found out much more about him for you guys!” Oh my gosh, I love my service group.
Until next time, Em 🙂
UPDATE 4:32PM: I FOUND HIM ON FACEBOOK, AND CHRISTY ADDED HIM. HE WAKEBOARDS 🙂
UPDATE 7:30PM: I ADDED HIM! LET’S SEE HOW THIS GOES…
Yesterday Lana and I were staying after school because we had a handbell concert… and we decided to dress up in these humongous pants (I could tie them around my neck and wear them as overalls… and I did) and run around in the hall by the faculty meeting. And then we took videos of us pretending to play the handbells and sent them to Megan. It was epic. The handbell concert went horribly, if you were wondering. Nobody played together and apparently no one looked at the conductor for the three pieces we played.
During chemistry class Megan and I were doing a lab, and we already knew what answer we were supposed to get. And when we didn’t get that answer, let’s just say we freaked out. We decided to… tweak our answers a bit… we were total ninjas.
And then when Megan, Mimi, me, and Christy (an exchange student) went to volunteer at a food bank… that’s when it got interesting. Mimi, Christy, and I went up to the loft to bag diapers. Then a shipment of bread came and we had to go unload it. It was pretty epic because we had to throw these bags of bread over our shoulders into this big crate. And I sort of hit Mimi and Christy in the head with the bread. I felt like Peeta. And once that thought popped into my head I started laughing really hard and started flinging the bread like a mad-woman. It was actually hilarious. Then when we were done we came back inside to finish packing the diapers. Well, once we got back up to the loft we noticed a REALLY HOT GUY. Now, I’m not talking cute. I’m talking IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL TO BE THAT HOT good looking. Christy started staring at him, and saying stuff like “oh my gosh guys” and “I have a perfect view of him”…. but that wasn’t the end of it. Megan was sitting right by him (Later she told us they were actually having a conversation! He’s a senior!) and we were waving at her and miming being hot and pointing at the cute guy. Well let’s just say that HE SAW US. He saw us pointing at him and screaming “Megan! Look!” Oh my word. But that’s not the worst. When we got back to school (we volunteer during one of our classes) Megan told us that she talked to him (as mentioned above) and that he has a gauge in his ear… ew. But he was still super good looking. And apparently there was another guy close to Megan who looked like this cute guy but didn’t have a hole in his ear. I wish I had seen him. Also, a few weeks ago, Christy and Mimi saw this really cute guy, and were screaming about it while stealing brownies from the staff lounge. Now, I saw a cute guy there, but I have no idea if it was the same one (I think it was. He was so good looking.)
Two days ago I had my last band concert. I’m so sad it’s over, but at least I have the summer camp to look forward to! We played this song where the guy who plays trumpet has an AMAZING SOLO. I seriously stopped breathing. I ordered the DVD, so maybe I can upload it sometime! I’ve decided to start playing trumpet over the summer. I’ve wanted to play ever since 7th grade, but this kid is like my role model, so I’ve decided to finally start.
Today during lunch Megan decided to talk about how I was so in love with Swimmer (I’m not, I just want to get to know him, he’s a cool guy!)… now that’s all great until she starts making up reasons that I’m in love with him, like that I see him everywhere (not true) and text her all the time about him (not true). Especially when she starts telling an annoying girl, Julie, that I’m in love with him. Not cool. Especially because I really don’t like her and I don’t want her to know about my (non-existent) love life.
Also, next week I may be going with Shelly to tennis state! 🙂
Today is senior prank day at my school, complete with croquet and bowling in the hallways, beach balls everywhere, and a hammock and wading pools on the lawn. During lunch my friends and I played croquet and bowling, played volleyball with beach balls, and tried to fit 5 people on the hammock. Why are we forever alone, you ask? Well I’ll tell you why, complete with a totally awkward story!
Background: Megan tried to set me up with her younger brother, who has a surprisingly deep voice for his age. And apparently he has abs?! I never would have guessed; according to Megan, he “sits at the computer all day eating ice cream and M&M’s”…. sounds like me.
Location: I was ushering at the school play (techies all the way)
Situation: Taylor (Megan’s brother) walked up to me and proceeded to say “hi”. For some reason I was feeling really introverted/socially awkward and proceeded to grunt “hey”. Taylor then walked away, apparently realizing I didn’t want to talk to him (I was just being socially awkward! I swear, I repel boys), and my friend Katie started laughing at me and she said “that’s Megan’s brother! You totally just blew him off! He was trying to talk to you and you ignore him!”. “Yes I know who he is, and I said hi…” I replied. Of course she continues laughing at my awkwardness…. my life in a nutshell.
