one of these days.

one of these days, i will ride in a hot air balloon. one of these days, i will get over my fear of ferris wheels. one of these days, i will be brave enough to tell you i miss you. one of these days, i will bike to the beach. one of these days, i will stay up to watch the sunrise. one of these days, i will clean the mess that is my room. one of these days, i will realize just how much you mean to me. one of these days, i will watch all three of the godfathers. one of these days, i will get my hair cut. one of these days, i will get a new phone. one of these days, i will go horseback riding. one of these days, i will become a better person. one of these days, i will understand why.

to the rescue.

it was 7:00 at night and she was lying in bed getting ready to take a nap. then the office theme song starts to play. she grabs her phone and reads the text message she just received. less than 15 minutes later, she's out the door and off to see a friend in need of her company. during the car ride there, she thought to herself. how lucky she is to have friends that call her when they're down and out and need someone to make them happy. how lucky she is indeed.

she gets dropped off, walks into the building, and spots her friend. then a grin appears on both of their faces. she walks through another door past the hustle and bustle of grown-ups, and gives her friend a hug. it's funny. you don't know how much you miss something until it's actually standing right in front of you. after not seeing her for an entire week, it's safe to say she missed her.

they went to the back and talked for a little while. okay well, talked a little, laughed a lot. "you guys have been with each other for 10 minutes and you're already laughing your heads off." pretty much.

in the end, she wasn't the one who rescued her friend from going crazy. her friend rescued her. without even knowing she needed to be rescued.


sitting in the living room. no fan blowing. just music playing. feeling a little sticky. thinking random thoughts...

today is the 10th day of summer vacation. i woke up late this morning. and i only woke up cause someone texted me. i hate waking up late. makes me feel gross. it's 2:42 right now. don't know if that statement served any purpose, but oh well. i want to see wall-e really badly. i watch waaay too many movies for my own good. i've already spent a good amount of my time in the movie theaters. not that i'm complaining. movies make me happy. like mangoes and late night phone calls. speaking of late nights, i've been having many of those lately. but okay, for me, late nights are nights that i stay up until 2 in the morning. yes, that's late. but many people stay up a lot later. ridiculous. anywho, it's getting kind of hot. need to go to the beach again. soon. my mom is watching jersey girl right now. i feel like watching.

going through pictures.

i'm gonna miss this class. protection squad! (+ jameson)

and this class! i swear...if we're not in the same VE class...

oh, and. i'm gonna miss this girl.

but september is a ways away. and today is a good day.

hello, old friend.

hiii. remember me? yeah. i haven't posted in a while. clearly. 25 days to be exact (holy crap). but trust me, i thought it had been a looot longer. felt like at least 2 months since my last post. i'm not exactly sure why i haven't been writing here for so long. i retreated back to writing on random scraps of paper and doodling on the backs of worksheets just because it was more convenient. i don't know. i guess maybe there was just too much to write about? i doubt any of it would have made sense to anyone else anyway.

so here is a post for the sake of posting. a post about how i never post anymore. exciting, i know. i'll be back later. it'll be better.

a little story of how things just seemed to work out...

committee applications were due friday, may 23. i had thought about it for a long time and i was iffy on whether or not i really wanted to do committee again. i don't really understand why i couldn't make up my mind. but the twenty-third rolled around and i didn't turn in an application. i was apathetic about it all so i didn't really care. then over that weekend, i started thinking. then i asked myself: what was i thinking? how could i possibly not want to be on committee again? especially for senior year. honestly, athena? what were you thinking?

but it was too late. jake told people that if they didn't turn in an application on friday, they could e-mail one to him over the weekend. the weekend was over. it was late. so i just went to bed. full of regret.

then tuesday night i was talking to jake and asked him about applications and stuff. then he told me something that made absolutely no sense: "don't worry. kat got your application." and of course, the only thing i could think of to say was, "...what?" he told me that kat got my application, but she lost it. i told him i didn't even turn in an application. so he just told me not to worry about it because i was already on the interview list.

i had my interview at 3:56 on thursday afternoon. it went perfectly. i am now comfortably in the 2009 senior class committee. i don't know why i cared so much about this. but i did and i do. and i'm still wondering how kat even thought she got my application. i guess...

it's fate.
