September 28-29, 2004
Today was pretty good, considering that it was "Pirate Day" at my school. A photo of me with my pirate gear is shown to the right. Doesn't the mean look on my face look suited to be on a pirate? I ended up calling my eye patch Dead Billy.
I had three tests today, one in Physics, Japanese, and P.E. I had no trouble taking any of these, due to my great student skills.
We had a lunch where all of the students were together, so I got to see my junior friend for once. The huge group, including a trombone player from band that I didn't expect, was pretty loud. Overall, it was okay. A problem was that a certain girl came. My sophomore friend and I went off with 10 minutes left, and talked about how he was afraid of the Teletubbies. He says that the TV in their stomachs freaks him out. I tortured him later in the day about this.
On the bus, a girl that lives in my neighborhood sat next to me. I chatted with my two friends across three seats, and the girl was kind of astranged to it. Anyway, my junior friend and I bothered this one guy for a while, until I learned he didn't like it. I kept telling her to stop talking, but she never got the message. When she got off the bus, I talked to the neighborhood girl a bit.
If you read comments to the previous blog entry, you can tell that I was “weirded” out by the comment.
This day wasn't so bad. I didn't do too much, though.
During school, we had a long resource period where some Alumni came and spoke to us about their experience at the school. I didn't pay too much attention to the speaker, but this one girl intrigued me. Oh well, I won't be seeing her again.
I decided to run, since it'd give me an adventure to have due to the fact I couldn't be picked up until a few hours after school.
After school, I had to do a huge run. I ended up getting 28:57, which was worse than my previous time. In my opinion, it was a lost cause. Before and after the run, I talked to a girl that was in my P.E. class for a while. She was pretty cool, but I don't understand how she can't finish the run when she's not a very big girl. After I finished the run, I bought some Powerade, then set off to the Bothell Library.
I took the way my parents said was through the bad part of town. It wasn't bad at all. The drivers weren't too bad, either. Overall, the walk wasn't too bad, but it took me a while. The people driving weren't too bad, either.
When I got to the library, I started off by connecting wirelessly to their network, as that is an option. When I sat down in a reading area, a girl from Bothell High, which I had never seen before. She apparently lives far away, but goes to Bothell because it's a good school. We talked for a bit, and I gave her some help on looking a word up in the dictionary. I then went onto MSN on my Axim, but got bored fast. She seemed to be kind of astranged by me at that point. She wandered away, which is kind of rude. I went onto the computer to try to login, but it wasn't up. I listened to music for a short while, and then started to watch videos on my Axim. Soon after, an old guy tried to get on the same computer, and failed. I tried to warn him, but he was apparently hard of hearing. This one girl that was sitting next to him and I chatted for a spell, until my dad came and drove me home.
Overall, this suburban adventure was pretty good, and worthwhile. I'm more fun in my life, now.
