Seize the day

Today was the last day of school. It wasn't at all how I had hoped or planned it but it really turned out the best way possible, I think.

So, the girl I like, our birthdays are 12 days apart, and we have the same horroscope. Last night I was on the phone with her and she was reading our horroscope, and it said something like "Tell the one you love your true feelings." So, of course, today being the last day of school and all that jazz, I was like "Alright!" I told her today, and I already knew she liked another guy ( :happysad: ) but I wanted to do it, right? So I knew she liked him so I said "Seize the day!" and I told her. She was kind of nonplussed, which I expected and was kind of a bummer, but it felt good to get it off my chest.

Well, since both of our horroscopes said to tell the people that we love them, I tried to be a good guy and I told her to do it too. I wanted her to tell the guy she likes, but no matter how much I urged her she wouldn't do it :happysad:

I didn't have any time to think about that because I had to go tell another girl that I had an enormous crush on earlier in the year that I used to have a crush on her, because I thought it was important to get it all on the table at the end of the year. She was like "Aww, that's so sweet", and all that kinda stuff, which was again kind of what I expected.

But then, I didn't have any time to think about that. My friend, who I completely and totally love platonically, came here from Mexico when she was little. She was having a lot of problems here, and this summer she was going to vacation with her old family down in Mexico. She hadn't told anyone but a few people, but she wasn't planning on coming back. We all really love her and we didn't want her to leave, so I had to convince her to stay here with us because we love her and we'll miss her. She promised me she'd stay.

Then I had no time to think about that, because I had to go say goodbye to my Art Teacher. She's going to teach at another school far away next year, and she's the only Art Teacher I've ever had. I really like her. I'm going to have art without her next year and it's going to majorly suck because it's going to be so weird without her, but I know that she's taking a really great opportunity and I'm happy for her. So, I said my heartfelt goodbyes and stuff.

And all of this was just in a half an hour. I then took my Honors English final (it was really easy). I was now officially out of school for the summer!

So after school I went to the mall with a bunch of friends and the night started off lame, because I saw the crazy girl (read the love forum if you want to know), and I had to try to find a way to ditch her. I got rid of her, and then all my friends and I went to the top of a parking structure and chilled out up there, and had a really great couple of moments together. Then some stupid mall security guard in a reflector vest, a douchebag helmet, and riding a pathetic bike came up to us and said "No hanging out up here!" He was trying to hassle us, so we just fucked with him by running up and down stairs (he couldn't on his bike) while he tried to chase us in the elevator.

After we lost him, we decided to say weird things while people walked by. Here's a good sample: "Duuude, when are we gonna smoke these crack rocks?" "Well Fonzy is gonna be here soon, I saw him under the bridge a second ago." "How much does he want?" as we passed some old couple on a bench. That was a lot of fun.

Basically, by now I had completely subscribed to the "seize the day" theory and was acting without inhibition. Which, of course, made for even more fun.

We went to Target (across the street from the mall) and bought Jones Sodas, but before that we went to the Patio Furniture section and fucked with all of it (knocking it over, really messing it up). Then we bought the sodas (I don't know how we didn't get caught with the Patio Furniture) and after we drank them we smashed the bottles on stuff. Then we stole a shopping cart and took it through a drive through of a fast-food restaurant, with like three people riding in and on the cart.

After that we went back to the mall, and went to a sit-down restaurant. We walked in one door, and then walked increasingly fast in a perfectly straight line (pushing people out of our way) right out the other door, and people were staring at us and getting upset for no reasion (hilarious).

We went to Borders (a book store), and we saw two annoying guys with a hot girl we don't know. We went up to them and they were like "We've been here since 1:30!" (it was around 8:00 right now), so we said "Then leave you fucking assholes" and walked away. As we were walking away, though, I said "Except for the hot one, she can stay as long as she wants" and she turned around and winked.

Then, we followed the manager of the store around silently, just a huge entourage of kids following him wherever he went. He started to get really freaked out, and was about to call security, so we left.

We went to a coffee shop, and there were little vases of flowers on every little table. There were some hot girls that looked like they were 20 (we're all 15-17), and since I was seizing the day, I picked up our little vase of flowers, walked over to their table, and set it down. I said "These are for you, since you girls are so pretty" and smiled, then walked away. They smiled really big and giggled nervously.

Then, some fake mall cops started hassling us about curfue, so we just all started running screaming "PO-LICE! PO-LICE!" Some random guy got the petrified look on his face and just started running with us. We were sprinting full-tilt throughout the entire mall, and we came to the street and saw our friend driving. She has a convertible, so we all jumped into it while it was moving, and made our great escape. We all went to my best friend's house and watched Super Troopers (best movie to watch in a huge group ever), and then I walked home. When all was said and done, it was about 1:00 AM.

And you know what? I feel really good. A lot of stuff didn't go as planned or how I wanted it to, but I seized the day and I have no regrets even though it didn't quite all turn out right. I really feel like today has been a great ending to a great year, a year that was a lot like this day. It didn't go like I thought it would, it wasn't exactly what I wanted but looking back I wouldn't want it any other way.

How old are you?

I'm only 15.

Edit://

I've felt drained, even hung over, all day today. I know why, now. It's because I am drained. I've been on such an such an emotional roller coaster for the past 48 hours that I'm just too wiped out.

Going to sleep well.
