Birthdays, Beaches, and Bowling

Yesterday was the birthday party for Melissa. It was a lot of fun, starting off with a trip to Long Point and then getting into some other stuff that I’ll talk about later. But let me begin with the beach, since, well, it’s the first thing that happened. I’m still getting ahead of myself, though, so let me slow down and start from the beginning.

I woke up yesterday at 8:00 AM. My parents had already left for the day, and they had taken both cars – but I already knew they were going to do that. I showered and got dressed, packed my bag for the beach, and then put my earbuds in my ear, turned on my music, and cranked the volume. This was partly because I was in a good mood, but also partly because I was trying to keep myself awake. Then with that, I headed out the door and walked over to the Staats’ house. I debated wearing my shoes to walk over there, but then I decided that it would be too much of a hassle to bring both shoes and sandals. I bring this up because it’s important – my sandals give me blisters, but I decided I’d wear socks with my sandals and hope for the best. It didn’t work too well; even on the ten-minute walk over to their house, I got blisters.

Anyways, I got to the Staats’ house and hung around there for a few minutes until people were…Continue Reading

Beaches and Fireworks

Oh my! Jeff missed a day?! How could this be? My life was so meaningless without his daily input of wonderful storytelling and gripping insight! I’ll never be the same again! I’m scarred forever!

The past week has been hectic. That’s the only word to describe it. But seeing as I’ve already told what has happened for most of that week, all that’s left is to talk about Thursday night and yesterday. Don’t worry; I’ll try to make it interesting. On Thursday morning, Jeff called me and told me that “his party on Friday was a go” and also told me to come to volleyball that night at Central. So that night, I went. We waited for more people (otherwise known as the Staats) to come, and the guy in charge – I don’t know his name – wandered around the church trying to find a net and volleyball. I think CBA took their net back and stuff, because he couldn’t find one anywhere. So, after waiting there for a while, he finally gave up and told us that we couldn’t do it. So we decided to do something else. We all headed outside and tried to figure out what to do – without much success.

It must have been half an hour to an hour that we stood outside. People were in two or three groups talking to each other. It was pretty boring. I just stood around generally acting like an idiot (what else is new?). Then Jeff…Continue Reading

Long Point!

Well, I’ve got a lot to talk about, so I might as well get started. I’ll begin with last night, since that’s first chronologically – yesterday obviously comes before today, in case you haven’t noticed. Wow. I’m a genius. Anyways, last night I headed over to Jessica’s house for the graduation party there. It really wasn’t all that great. Not many people were there, since some had already been there and gone, so it was basically some of the Grade 9s, Jael, and me. I played a bit of volleyball and badminton outside, but it was just so hot outside that I had to get indoors. Some of the people went to the pool, but considering how I have drowning tendencies, I decided to stay away from that.

Inside, I found Bas, Jon, Jessica, and Sarah watching The Road to El Dorado. It’s that cartoon animated movie (I think it’s Disney, isn’t it?). It wasn’t all that great, although I suppose it was good for a cartoon movie. During that, supper was prepared, and we had a nice feast of burgers, hot dogs, and various salads and such. After the movie was over, Jessica got her brother to set up the X-Box for us. I was kind of puzzled as to why he needed to set it up, since it’s really not that hard, but I soon found out that it hadn’t been used in ages, and the discs were pretty scratched up or something. So, he spent about five…Continue Reading
