(I began writing this on the last week of summer, before school. I've been booked with homework for the last several nights, so I'm just now posting it).
So this past week has been very eventful. Therefore, I'm hiding the contents under an LJ cut.
Starting with Monday, my friend (our Moms are friends too) and her younger brother came to stay with us for five days. We played Zoo Tycoon on Eddie's laptop (that's exciting to me, since the only game available for Mac is Reader Rabbit), rented Office Space (hilarious), and had a good time just hanging out together. My friend (who's going to be a sophomore) gave me some info on Anderson. The common advice (ex: don't be an obnoxious freshman). I really don't think I'll have any trouble with that one, since I'm not at all outgoing with people I don't know. That's the main thing, from what I've heard. She said she knew some other girls in her grade who were completely opposed to associating with freshmen (uh, was it really that long ago when you were the "annoying little freshman"? Guess so). I refuse to be concerned with that crap. If they have issues with me, just because of my age (something I obviously can't help), then hell with 'em. She also said that there were upper classmen who were nice to us, as in, treating us like babies. "Oh, cute little freshmen!" But that's better as opposed to getting your ass kicked. I asked her if the girls were the only ones who had issues with us. She said "Yeah. The older guys won't bother you... unless they want to get in your pants." Being a freshman girl sounds like a lot of fun. Oh well, atleast I'm not alone.
Anyways, on Tuesday, we had plans to go see Draco and the Malfoys Live! (Yeah, I'm aware of the fact that I'm nerd.) The only problem?
1. It was in Lexington, Kentucky.
2. Dad popped the tire on this retarded foot-tall concrete wall in the Kroger parking lot.
But did that stop us? Hell no. We called Mom, who came to the rescue with the Saturn. The parents traded cars, Mom taking the Volvo home on the spare tire (which was also flat), and Dad taking the Saturn. My parents wanted to cancel, but me being my annoyingly stubborn, determined self, insisted that we could still make it on time. Hey, it was 4:10, the concert started at 6:00, and Mapquest said that it only took an hour and 40 minutes. I didn't want to let my friends (or my self) down. I mean, come on, it's Draco! So, we hit the highway, with me up front to help Dad (good to have an extra eye watching out for exits and stuff). We were pretty lucky, because we managed to get there right on time (but didn't have enough time to eat beforehand). Harry and the Potters were playing as well, and of course, everyone was there to see them. In fact, one girl overheard us talking about Draco and the Malfoys, and remarked "Oh, yeah, I think they're opening up for Harry". (They damn well better be!) And about the performance, it was awesome. We were practically the only ones there who knew all the songs... and sang along (while being stared at by all the "Gryffindors"). I was just about to die of starvation, but I was having so much fun that I didn't care. Afterwards, at 9:00, we ate at Fazoli's, fast Italian food, which I do recommend (they have them all over Lexington, but I've seen only one in my area, strange).
...So that was my last week of summer.
