Snikeyzzz, I've been busy :P.
Actually, within the past couple days I haven't even been home, so that kinda cut into my posting time. I'll just quickly go over what I've been up to...
Friday morning was my eye doctor appointment. Ugh, I hate going in for those, expecially since my usual doctor is a jerk. Like seriously, my last appointment was three weeks ago, and he was mad at me for not still having my trial pair of contacts. Sure, I should've held onto them, but he didn't have to be rude about it. Once I finally extracted myself from that mess, Amanda and I went to Shayla's Grandma's house on the lake to swim & chillax :). That was a whole lot of fun. We went swimming, out on this little raft type thing, and took some pretty nifty pictures. I like it there, I had a blast. We had to leave after awhile for our evening photography class, so her grandma brought us back to Amanda's house.
My mom brought us to the building, but to our surprise, his studio was empty. With the exception of his studio-mate and some other girl. They nicely informed us that our instructor was held up with something, and he left a note on the door. So our session is postponed to whenever we want I guess :P. It wasn't really a big deal, things come up. We went to the mall real quick so my mom could pick up a couple things, and then headed back to Amanda's. Later on, Julie joined us and we left for the book release party for Breaking Dawn! I've been anticipating it's release for like the past three weeks, hahah. I'm so glad we got to go to it. When we arrived at the bookstore, all these kids about our age were walking around with these brown glass bottles. Julie's like to one girl, "Is that beer?!?" Hahah, and the girl replied, "No, it's Dracula's Blood." Lol, I guess it's this strawberry flavored soda, I ended up buying one because a) I was parched, and b) Who can pass up an offer to drink Dracula's Blood? Nootttt me :). So we checked everything out, got some free pins/stickers/rings, and casted our votes for who Bella will marry. Amanda, Julie, and I ended up getting a little bored after awhile, so we took a walk to Domino's for some cheezybread, which we proceded to eat in the big gazebo in the middle of Crandall Park.
By the time we were back to RedFoxBooks, it was almost time to begin the release. Needless to say, I was stoked. But of course we had to wait forever because the word "pre-order" never really crossed our minds. So it definitely took awhile before it got to be our turn. While sitting on the curb waiting to buy my book, this boy who looked our age asked to take a picture of my shoes, hahah. That probably sounds pretty strange, but my kicks are quite a work of art. Amanda drew them special with sharpie for my birthday in June. Here is what they look like...
Julie's dad picked us up once it was over, and I came back home with Julie because it was like 1:00 in the morning, and I was supposed to come over for Tom the next day anyways. He wasn't even home though, so I chilled a little with Julie, and fell asleep until like 10:00am. We chilled & whatnot for awhile until Tom came home sometime after noon. The majority of our day was spent working on the fort, specifically the zipline :). I had a good time, but like I kept feeling absolutely retarded, because I kept making stupid mistakes and Tom would end up having to come and do whatever I messed up himself, so I felt useless. I'm not sure why it made me feel so upset, probably because it kept happening repetively. It was our seven month anniversary, so I wanted to enjoy it-- but it was just difficult to do when I was making so many mistakes and feeling so dumb. Blehh. I really just wanted to do something that I couldn't screw up, like watch a movie. It's not really too easy to screw that up, hahah. But I mean it was worth it in the end, I helped him(kinda), create something cool. And the zipline actually works :), it's neat. I tried it out, but like it got caught in some branches so I was hanging there until Tom came to my rescue :P.
I'd have to say the absolute worst part of the day, and anything to happen recently, was when I almost friggen ran him over with the lawnmower. Like holyshit, it was fucking horrible. I was trying to back it up to the trailer thing, but I'm not familiar with lawnmowers, I'm more used to driving cars, so when I was backing up it felt like when I back my car out of the garage kinda. When I do that, I've usually got my foot lightly on the brake, but in this case with the mower, it was the reverse pedal. So as I was backing up to him, he told me to stop because I was close enough, and for some idiotic reason, most likely the whole being used to having my foot on the BRAKE, I pressed the reverse harder. Oh my friggen god. Once I realized what I was doing I stopped, but shit-- I was so close to like running him over. Just thinking about hurting him or anything like that scares me so bad, I even started crying hahah. What a woosie I am. Tom wasn't mad or anything, but I still felt extremely guilty, and started tearing up all over again every time he made a joke about it. Gahh, it was bad. We spent the rest of the night inside, watching tv and hanging out, y'know. Then we eventually just went to bed.
I just still can't get over how easily I could've injured him. I'm never driving that stupid garden tractor again, forgettttt that. We didn't do too much the next day, which happens to be today. Julie and I have been reading in our Breaking Dawn's, and my mom came to get me around 1:30. I thought I had work at 4, but when I showed up one of the head honchos told me the park was basically empty, so I could just go home. News like this is usually good, except for the burning hole in my wallet >:[, and the fact that I have no alternative plans for the night. I suppose I'll just get cozy with a good book :), that's never a bad idea.
