Back to life. I really enjoyed my time at home with my parents. It was nice and relaxing. I really had no worries... and it was fantastic!! Really! I wish I didn't have any stress or worry in my life... But then I guess it wouldn't really be "life" eh? Anyways. So on Thursday I walked into school and was happy to be back. People were coming up to me excited to see me, telling me they missed me. It was a good feeling. Then all of the sudden one of my Learning Leaders (aka teachers) came running up to me screaming my name. Now this would have been somewhat normal, however this certain Learning Leader and I don't really get along. We had a minor falling out, and she made me cry really hard. So whenever she says my name I cringe thinking I am in trouble or something. Anyways so she comes up to me and she looks really excited. And she asked how my trip was. Confused, I tell her wonderful and she was happy for me. And then she told me that today was the day we, as the Student Council (sorta like a Student Body) were going to the Special Olympics to do hair and manicures. A smile spread across my face as I was super excited. She told me she thought I would like to go and so she signed me up. (Apparently she felt bad for making me cry.. so now we are good... hopefully). So I went to the Special Olympics on Thursday all day long. I got a little sunburn and I was super tired Thursday night. But it was SO worth it. I loved it!!! It was so fun and the people were so wonderful. They can only make you smile. I did a LOT of mohawks. And "twisty backs" is what they called them. Oh they were so fun. Also Kendra got to come along too. So it was a fun day.
Then last night was Friday night. And besides last week (because I was on my way home) I have been sitting home Friday nights alone watching movies, and this is NOT out of choice. I don't really know what happened to all of my friends, but all of the sudden I feel like I have none to hang out with. I mean, Kendra has her kids or other friends she wants to see and hand out with. She is with me everyday so I don't blame her. But I don't know what I used to do, but now I am just sitting home alone. Which is sad, and then Saturday nights I have been trying to do something, but usually it consists of going to Redbox and renting a new movie to watch... by myself. Anyways... BUT NOT LAST NIGHT!!! See, yesterday I was going out to my car at lunch to go to 7-11 and get a Slurpee and I saw this flyer on my windshield. I looked at it and it said "Pool Party". I looked at Kendra and said "I'm going to this pool party!!!!" She just kind of looked at me like I was a dork... which I am. So I was super excited all afternoon for the pool party. It was at Seven Peaks, which is a water park, and it was only $5 to get in. Which is kinda a lot of money for me right now, but I was desperate. I was NOT going to sit home alone another Friday night! So I was talking about it with a girl named Tajia who I go to school with. And she really wanted to go. So we went. We got there about 10 ish... and started dancing for a little bit. Then Tajia and her friend Stacy decided we needed to go down the slides.... at night! DANGER!!!! I am afraid of water slides in the first place. Add PITCH BLACK slides.... NOPE!!! DANGER!!!!!!! I kept telling them I would just sit and watch and they would NOT have that... uh.... I went down like 3 or 4 slides a couple times each. I was really impressed that I did. I screamed a LOT. My throat hurts pretty bad this morning. Tajia and Stacy like to do this thing called trading places while on the water slide... Danger! We went down this slide called the "Cave In" and in a 3 person tube... Danger. But on top of that. They decide to trade places. We end up flipping the tube while IN the water slide about 1/3 of the way down. So the remainder of the slide I am trying to flip back over this stupid tube. I hated that one!!! Then we did another one called the "Shotgun" yeah if the name doesn't scare you.... well read the name again! Needless to say I did have a good time, all in all. I am sore this morning from being so tense and screaming DANGERRRRR!!! But I did have fun and I am glad Tajia made me go down the water slides. It was fun. And it was $5 well spent!
