      A good friend once said to me, "Life has its ups and downs. You just need to know when the bad times are, so you can cherish the good ones." I used to disregard this saying until this year, and i realize, that things are good. I used to be, well, to put it simply, a punk-bitch.
      But, i feel like the one thing that describes how i feel right now can be taken from the song, "Dog Problems" by The Format. "I hate what I've become... I lied, I hated who I was."
      So far, i've noticed I have become sort of an asshole, and im not afraid to admit it. I surprised that people are even my friends, yet somehow they are. But this is better than being my old punk-bitchy self.
      I guess that all im really trying to say, if im really trying to say anything at all, is: Life sucks, but not as much as it did.

      So here I am writing this journal for no one to actually read. Life is better than expected in all aspects besides one.
      I have good classes for my Senior Year, I have a job (Got that one at the movie theater), I have a car, I have a life, I have great friends. For once in my life everything is going the way I want.... Except for one thing. There is this girl, every time I see her I cant help but smile, and whenever we talk everyone says that she likes me and that we would make a great couple. But there is a problem with that.
      She doesn't like me, from what I can tell. So, let me tell you a story about her and I (I will call her S). We had chemistry together last year, the class that is. I talked to her almost everyday in class, and we both laughed and smiled. So one day after class, nearing the end of the school year, I asked her,
      "Hey S, I was wondering if you wanted to do something this weekend" A slight smile took over her face, and she simply replied with,
      "Sure, probably" she paused, "But I have to go and catch my bus!" and she was gone.
      Right after I had realized I did not get her number or anyway to contact her, besides the fact we were friends on facebook. So I did what any hopeless romantic would do and I sent S a message... This would have been a good plan, if the person checks facebook regularly. The following 4 quotes was our conversation on facebook.
      "Hi, why weren't you in class today? I was wondering, if you still wanted to hang out this weekend, and if I can have your number. I can text you to figure out details and such." There was no reply for 27 hours.
      "Hey I left early to go to a wedding and now I'm sick and tomorrow I have to work on a Spanish final with my partner I'm sorry! We'll have to hang another time." Heartbroken and sad I had no idea how to respond to that, so i simply said,
      "Oh okay. Get well soon."
      "Thanks!!!" and that was that.
      I had gotten denied by the girl I love, but then I thought to myself, she still said yes and the probably was because she knew she had plans and wanted to hang out with me, but she knew she couldn't. Time passed and the end of the year slowly crept up one me. By that time we had gotten our yearbooks and on page 311 of the book, there was a beautiful picture of an Arizona sunset. No words, just the picture and i was determined to get her to sign it, and she did, she wrote,
      "GARRETT. Let's face it, you're awesome. This year has been soooooo much fun & I'm so glad we've gotten to hang out in Chem. & at musical (before i quit :) & we should FOR SURE hang over summer! It was fun being the flames to Brandon's spark! & even though you don't remember, but we've known each other since 2nd grade. Hope to have a class together next year!!! :D <3 S.H." She signed with a heart next to her name, I thought she was trying to tell me something.
      So, i mustered up all the confidence I had left, it was the last day of school, my last chance. Once again after class I nervously approached her,
      "Hey S, I was wondering, now that schools over and all, I was wondering if you wanted to hang out sometime?"
      "Yeah! But i have to go and catch my bus, ill send you my number over facebook!" As you can guess that never happened, A week passed and I thought she had forgotten or something. So I sent her a message
      "Hey S! If you still wanted to hang out my number is (520) ***-****, Just call me or text me whenever!"
      No reply over the remainder of the summer.
      You may be asking yourself, why am I bring this up now? I saw her the other day.
      She walked in and chills ran down my spine and yet my heart felt warm.
      "Garrett!"
      "S!" She walked over and we hugged. And we went on about or classes, our summers. And we both had acted as if nothing had ever happened. It was nice just to see her face again, and the way our faces lit up when we saw each other. And I here I am writing this journal about my love, for no one to read. So, i guess what I'm really trying to say is,

      "I love her, and I don't understand women" I just wish I knew if she did like me.

      Its always such a pleasure. Remember when you tried to kill me twice.
      Good Song.
      Anyway. It is summer, and i have done absolutely nothing so far, its nice. I applied for a job at a movie theater, then got an interview. I think it went well, hopefully i get the job, that would be nice. They said i would get a call in a week, and its been like 4 days... So yeah. I hope i get it, it would be awesome. Anyway.... Good bye, bless your face.

      Its that time again. It seems like I wrote a journal only a week ago, and yet here I am. A month later. The Wizard of Oz went great, I was nominated for "Technician of the Year", lost, received an award for "Best Set" on the school's show of "Noises off"... Thats Basically it. Oh, and I have finals this upcoming week.
      Oh life, why do you hate me?
      On the bright side, i did Pass Pre-Calc with a C. So that made me happy. That is all. Good-bye.

      NO, this is show week. The first show of "The Wizard of Oz" was today, it went fairly well. Only one thing went wrong, someone forgot to pre-set the curtain for the Witch's Castle scene. So the curtain just fell atop the castle and stuff went down.
      So that was fun, anyway, there are three more shows over the next two days. yay.

      Today hasnt been the best beginning of a birthday. I woke up to my little brothers snake slithering on me. I hate snakes. Then I took a shower.... While in there, I opened a bottle of shampoo, and while closing it, shampoo launched it self and performed an aerial attack on my eye. Covering my eye in pain, I outreached my arm that was holding the shampoo bottle in order to put it back. I apparently put the bottle on the edge of the platform, so naturally it fell off. Then landed on my toes.... Yep.

    • O hai thar.

      Well, I havent been posting in quite some time. But today is different, I dont know how, but it is.
      Am I making a Journal because im bored? Maybe.
      Are my friends not on xbox? Most Likely.
      Am I avoiding to study for my Math Mid-term and my US/AZ History Tests tomorrow? Yes.
      In the time that i was procrastinating , I updated my profile. I took away most of the grammar errors and all of the ...'s. I also now have a real picture of me on here. Look at me with my scared face, it was taken off of a laptop that is why it is poor quality. Well. That is all I have to say for now, I guess.
      Goodbye random strangers.
