Tennis state!!!

These past few days I was at tennis state, and in one word it was: awesome!

Shelly got 1st place (I’m not surprised)

I saw so many hot guys (I didn’t know they existed in my state!)

Megan and I were total stalkers by taking pictures of hot guys playing tennis

Megan, ChaiTeaLover, Shelly and I made so many new inside jokes it’s not even funny – I can’t go to a gas station or a bathroom anymore without laughing

I have eaten more Sour Patch Kids, Starbursts and Chex Mix in the last 2 days than I have in my whole life

I have decided that I’m (most likely) going to be on my tennis team next year

I met two very… interesting tennis coaches (they’re actually pretty good looking, and young. Awkward)

I found out how to find out someone’s address using Google

Until next time, Em 🙂

Sometimes I just hate my friends so much…

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! 🙂

Until next time, Em 🙂


Nooooo…. Anna is going to the tourney this weekend!!! Apparently it’s a three day thing, and if she wins on the first two days she goes on to Saturday, the day of THE BBQ!!! Hopefully her (possible) games will end early enough for us to make it to the BBQ so I can see Swimmer…. all hope is not lost!

Until next time, Em 🙂


Well, a few weeks ago I mentioned that Anna would have another BBQ this weekend, and I could see Swimmer there. Well sadly, she might have to go to a tennis tournament this weekend so I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GO. Argh… I thought I could actually talk to him for a change (sadly whenever I see him I get all excited and end up NOT talking to him… sigh)

Wish me luck!

Until next time, Em 🙂

Guess who I saw today?!?!

Today I went to Anna’s house and played tennis with her. When we went to go buy tortillas, his family was playing croquet on their lawn (how cute!!!), and I totally saw Swimmer. He looked ravishing, as always, in his bright (read: neon) red shorts, black and red plaid shirt (he gets like 1 million points for that in my mind) and….. a hat WITH EARFLAPS (a gazillian points for that!!!)….. HE WAS SOOO ADORABLE! And of course I didn’t talk to him. I mean, I totally would have, except that he was like standing in the street staring at me and A who were scootering/bicycling around, and it would have been totally creepy to be like “Hey Swimmer! What’s happening?!” I was not going to take my chances.

Until next time, Em 🙂

I have good news and bad news

Good news: there is going to be a BBQ in Anna’s neighborhood in two weeks. And Swimmer will probably be there.
Bad news: I was originally going to play tennis with Anna today, and I was thinking of a way to get Swimmer to come. I asked Anna if she knew anybody who played tennis. She said she only knew two people: A and JB. Of course she knows Swimmer plays tennis! So why did she not mention him? I asked her if she knew any other people who play, because “you guys are really good and I suck” and she said “it’s fine I already invited them”… WHY?! I guess the only way she will want to play with him is if we play at her house and he comes to play with us. Sigh.
Until next time, Em 🙂


Today was life changing. Just kidding. But it was pretty awesome.

So it started out as an ordinary day, super sunny. I was really excited because this was like the 3rd sunny day of the year so far. Also, I was hoping that I could go to Anna’s house and maybe, just maybe, Swimmer would come out and play tennis because of the beautiful conditions. Well, it started raining and my hopes were dashed. But then I checked ever faithful weather.com and found out IT WOULD BE SUNNY BY EARLY AFTERNOON! I realized now that this was a sign; I should go.

Well, I came to Anna’s house and it started sprinkling (sign?!) and I was pretty sad. But after we played a board game, the sun started shining again and we decided to play tennis. After about an hour, who decided to show up but SWIMMER HIMSELF! Now, we were playing with three people; Anna, JB, and me. So when he showed up a perfect opportunity came. So we decided to play tennis.

And today I learned some life-changing news. Swimmer is NOT VERY GOOD AT TENNIS! He must have been good on Tuesday when I saw him play or something… because he is not very good. Anna even said I might be better than him! I also learned that he is a VERY STRANGE BOY. Very strange. While I was pondering his strangeness, I realized that he had some tendencies in common with my brother.

I decided to tell Anna, and she freaked out.

Me: You know, Swimmer reminds me of my brother…

Anna: Why, cuz you secretly love Swimmer just like you secretly love your brother?

Me: *asdfjkl* I think Anna’s had too much whiskey today!

Also, Swimmer is a tad bit hyper. He was swinging his tennis racket around like there was no tomorrow. I seriously fear for that boy… there’s something wrong with his head. Especially because he was wearing a wool hat in 65 degree weather. But you know, there is something I seriously like about him. I don’t know if it’s his resemblance to me and my brother, or if it’s the way he  runs around spaztically, but there is definitely something interesting about that kid, and not in a bad way. I’m just waiting till the time when Anna exclaims that I remind her of Swimmer, and that we’d be perfect for each other, just like she did with SpongeBob (which she was TOTALLY wrong about)

Until next time, Em 🙂
