Hm. Not bad. BEWARD LONG JOURNAL
Hi there! It's been a while since I wrote last. That was July 9th. I guess I should summarize the summer.
Well, my kiribian's past, and no one caught it. It's a pity, but oh well.
I usually have to describe an event right after for the description to be any good, but I'll try my best. The summer wasn't all too exciting, since I wasn't able to go anywhere far, but I had fun all the same! I wasn't able to go to Poland this time because of the floods threatening an epidemic or something; if I went, there'd be a chance I wouldn't be able to come back to Canada on time for school or something. I really wanted to see my relatives again. But my mom told me that my grandmother was going to sell her apartment and come over here! I hope she can! She's just so sad and lonely all the time, she needs to be here with us.
I wasn't able to go with my dad to the States, but that's alright. We were having a little money troubles, what with my dad's boss not paying when he's supposed to, so my parents decided that my brother and I would stay home. I think the situation's better now, but we're not going off with buying random luxuries.
But enough of the couldn'ts. I had lots of fun all the same!
I went to Sunfest this year with a couple of friends, but since we came too early, we ended up going to see a movie at a cheap mall. The movie was funny... well, when we came back to Sunfest, it was alive with song and dance. Sadly, it was time to go home... so I wasn't able to enjoy it fully, but I didn't have too much money to spend anyway.
My friend entrusted me to plan a water balloon ambush with her sometime in the end of July I think. I went to her house which is on the outskirts of town, and we filled water balloons and hid them in her backyard. Some weren't really that conspicuous, but when one of our unsuspecting friends discovered things, we unleashed the fury!
In all reality, there weren't any sides. We were just picking balloons up and checking them at each other. Some wouldn't explode too easily, so some of us were pelted~
Then it started to storm! It was so fun! Since we were already wet, we went out to this huge area behind her house. It consisted of two baseball fields, space inbetween, a tennis court, and a park. I swear, I was not cold, not for a second. It stopped raining then, so we returned back, and we dried off.
When the skies darkened, we decided to play Man Locator, and split into teams :3 We didn't establish rules the first time, though... and that ended up with the hiding team wandering too far, and one of them falling into a ditch and scratching up her knees really bad. >.O Since we couldn't find them for a while, we were convinced it was a setting for a horror movie moment, so one of my other friends found a baseball bat. We were protected. XD
After that, we started a bonfire, ate junkfood and roasted marshmellows, and... yeah! That was a successful night ^^
With the same friend, a few weeks later, we all decided to go to her cottage about 2 hours away. Lots of stuff happened but I guess I'll just sum it up in a couple words.
The guys drank alcohol with other guys, and one of those stranger guys wandered into our cottage.
The beach was dirty, had lots and LOTS of sharp, bastard rocks, but AWESOME waves on the last day.
Some drama, but that resolved quickly.
Poker and Crazy Eights. Plus some Bohemian Rhapsody.
Nature hikes, in the day and in the night. With a Ukulele.
But BEFORE that, I went and saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World with my best friend. I was able to catch up with him, and the movie was great. Bliss~~
Then a couple of days after the cottage, me and two others went and got some sushi.
All in all, it was a successful summer. I didn't find a job, but I don't think I wanted one for the summer. Sooo I'll find one to work on the weekends ^^
TOMORROW. SCHOOL STARTS FOR ME.
Honestly, it doesn't feel like it's my last year of highschool. It's a troubling thought, but I feel cool about it. Grade 12... ^^ I wonder what'll happen this year! I've got great classes, and I hope I have lunch with my friends.
I have Religion through Art, Visual Arts, English, and Communication Tech. this semester. It looks easy, don't you think? X3
This journal is long enough I think. I hope you all had a nice summer!
P.S. Now I have some tags to give you X'D
1. What does your DeviantArt name mean and why?

I don't get annoyed by questions asked of me. I get annoyed when other students ask teachers questions that a child with common sense could answer though. It's wasting time, and it's wasting MY time. If I wasn't there to learn, why would I be there, hm?
