So Friday we left after our second final, which was about 12:30. We picked Rachel’s stuff up then went to Kelsey’s to pack her stuff and wait for Emma to show up. To be honest, Rachel and I don’t get along but I wanted to do this as a last thing for us as seniors and she’s friends with Emma and Kelsey. Plus, I was done with drama and wanted nothing to do with it. When Emma showed up, we were still packing away the alcohol. It’s kinda hard to do when you are trying not to be obvious.
So we started our 3 hour trip…
It turned out really fun. We talked a lot and jammed to some music(The Maine and Justin Godsey covers. What is my life?) I’m now known as E!.com because I somehow know everything about everyone famous(I blame Twitter and Tumblr) and the other Kelsey is known as Miss Snapple Facts cuz she knows random stuff. Found out Rachel is from Carlsbad(Shaun White, anyone?) and had hung around Ryan Sheckler and his friends a little before she moved here in August. She also invited us to visit her once she moves back this weekend.
When we got there, we realized the farther north in California you go, the nicer. I even found myself screaming at drivers less. That night, we did Sunny D and vodka and just relaxed in the hot tub. Emma halluscinates when drunk and Kelsey trips the fuck out. Rachel and I just kicked back with our drinks and laughed at their stupidity.
Saturday, we went to downtown and got amazing chocolate at the place I go to every time I’m up there. The fudge doesn’t melt! Oh, I bought yellow sunglasses as well. They’re my Transformers glasses. We went into Kings Beach because that’s where the closest Chevron was and that’s where my gas card is for. By chance, we drove by a tattoo shop and Emma made her appointment. She got the PI symbol on the back of her ear. The guy had never done that before. It didn’t hurt her one bit and she’s the biggest pansy when it comes to needles. The lady that owns the tattoo shop owns the smoke shop right across the parking lot and her partner owns a talent booking company and she offered me a job to help her out if I move there this summer. I’m contemplating it because there’s great bands there.
That night we watched The Ugly Truth, which threw me off with it being based in Sacramento. The weather maps and stuff had where we were at, where I live and am going to school in the fall. Weird. Emma fell asleep right after it and Kelsey, Rachel and I broke out the vodka, Cuervo and Bacardi 151. Rachel hadn’t ever had Cuervo and so I took the shot with her. I wasn’t originally going to drink cuz I wanted to chill and be okay to drive home and I felt like shit from being sick. We just kept doing shots of that and I was the only one of them who didn’t have a chaser(sometimes, the people I drink with are so odd.) And then we cracked open the Bacardi. I hadn’t had 151 before and Rachel made me think it was gonna kill me and she poured me a chaser. We took our shots of that and it wasn’t anything bad so I didn’t drink something with it. Anyway, we were gonna make a drinking game out of watching House but then Kelsey and Rachel thought the little statues at the cabin came alive. Too funny.
Today we came home and saw way too many Subaru’s. If I see another one, I just may shoot myself.
do you have a friend? do you have many friends? i have friends, i love my friends. friends are an amazing concept. you find someone who shares your same interests, thoughts, feelings. yet they are still a completely different person than you. it’s interesting how you can tell two people are friends. say you meet one person, then you meet the person that is their best friend. you can tell in the way that person dresses, the way they talk, the music they listen to, that these people are so similar and somehow are very compatible to be friends. your friends can bring out the best in you, and also take out the things that bring out the worst in you. there are different kinds of friends too. some friends last a day, some friends last a semester. some friends last a lifetime. sometimes life friends can go six months without seeing or talking to each other, but pick up right where they left off. do you have a friend like that? i do. best friends go down together. you look out for your best friend, you are there for them, they are there for YOU. you appreciate them, and if you don’t, you should. you should tell them. somehow, some way. point it out. thank them. i’d like to be your friend, will you be mine? spread friendship. spread appreciation. spread love.
“You know, it’s been said that we just don’t recognize the significant moments in our lives while they’re happening. That we grow complacent with ideas or things or people, and we take them for granted, and it’s usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you, that you realize how wrong you’ve been, that you realize how much you really need it, how much you love it.”—One Tree Hill (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“If anything it’s a reminder that you can’t live your life holding grudges, with hate in your heart, being unforgiving. Life’s way too short, there’s way too many questions left unanswered, for us to fester and dwell on things that are completely unimportant in the long run.”—William Beckett (via quote-book)
how weird it is that with a simple form of “hello” things can go back to where they were as if nothing has changed? It’s really weird and I’m not sure if I like it. I mean, things are the same but they’re also so different than before. Neither of us are the same people and that makes this interesting and intriguing, but I also hate not knowing someone the way I used to. It’s like learning about them all over again.
Our father who art in San Jose. Hockey be thy name. Thy will be done. The cup will be won. On ice, as well as in the stands. Give us this day our hockey sticks. And forgive us our penalties, as we forgive those who cross-check against us, Lead us not into elimination. But deliver us to VICTORY!!! In the name of the fans, Lord Stanley, and in the name of the Sharks. Amen.
