Church Filled Up My Day


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. Song/video of today is a song called “Wake Me Up” by Avicii. I’ve grown an addiction to the song and listen to it on a consistent basis, which is awkward. I don’t really like a lot of Avicii’s songs since they’re so mainstream, but I guess this one grew on me. Enjoy!

So today, as you can tell by the title, was a day full of church. I can really say that Church Filled Up My Day. Immediately when I woke up, my eyes met a bright light from my room. I told my Mom to shut off the lights in an annoyed attitude. My Mom followed and turned off the lights and it seemed she was (through my blurred vision) pulling out clothes from my closet. It’s a normal thing she does every Sunday. She hasn’t done it recently a lot, though, which is completely contradictory to my previous sentence. She gave me the Vans pants to wear that I wore last Thursday at school. I really like wearing them because they look slick on me. At least to me. She gave me an Abercrombie sweatshirt to wear and then sent me downstairs to have put on my acne creme and arrange my hair because my hair looked absolutely horrid from all the bed-hair I got. Once my Mom got everyone else awake and dressed they sent them downstairs as well and she did my hair along with applying the acne creme. It was 8 o’clock by this time and I was just wondering why we were getting ready so early since we’re going to 11 o’clock service, but I just kept my mouth shut and let my parents do  the working. We had to stay a bit late because my Dad had to print a specific document for the volunteer group he leads. Once he was done, we left briefly.

On the way, my Dad discussed with me several things. My future. What I’m gonna do to be business prepared and all that stuff so the car ride would not prolong. When we arrived at the church, I volunteered to let Anabelle and Matthew stay with me and eat the breakfast at the volunteer group room so they wouldn’t eat my Profit Pop-Tarts (the Pop-Tarts I’m selling [the motto works ;)]), but I had to have responsibility for them at the same time. So, instead I let them take the doughnuts and apples from the counter-tops where they served the breakfast and had them sit outside the room and watch the already-started-service and I went inside the West auditorium of the church and found a place to sit down then watched the preacher preach his sermon. Today I was very serious. I don’t know why. Nothing was making me serious on purpose, I was actually a lot more relaxed now than recently. It’s probably cause the sermon hit me deep. When my watch dinged 10 o’clock, I went back to my brother and sister and saw them playing with another girl about Anabelle’s age (Anabelle is 7 [turning 8 this November]) instead of sitting near the room. I was indifferent about it and just picked them up to take them to Leadership room. It’s the room where some of the volunteers of the church take all children from K-5 grade. I signed them in and then left immediately. As I passed by some of the hallways to drop Matthew and Anabelle, I noticed my friend Jacob was there at the doors early. It was a surprise and I was happy to greet him when I passed back by the hallway near the doors. I sat with him, the name-tags of Anabelle and Matthew in my pocket(the name-tags are the only things that allow me to take Anabelle and Matthew out of the room).

I talked to Jacob about a lot of things that had been going on recently and told him about my problem with myself about being too  “serious”. He didn’t know to respond, so I changed the subject and continued opening doors in excited manners to visitors of the church or people entering the church. It was awkward greeting some of the people entering the church because I had sore throat and my voice cracked and hurt my throat at the same time. It was purely unpleasant. Eventually, when 11:00 o’clock came around and the people for the 11:00 o’clock service arrived, Jacob and I sat down and talked about my book. I don’t know why, but we always talked about my book. I guess because I consider him my editor since he’s the only guy older than me with much wisdom in story-telling and has actually read “Fiction” books. We continued to talk about my book until his blond friend came by and took him outside of the church to talk and then he came back inside telling me he hated his blond friend but yet she was so intriguing for some reason . . . I don’t even know anymore.

When the 11:00 o’clock service was coming to a close in the sermon, my Dad came up to me and told me I needed to pick up Matthew and Anabelle from the Leadership room before the people of the 11:00 o’clock sermon were going to exit the doors. I was able to pick them up in 5 minutes flat and then exited the church. The reason for my Dad doing this was because we needed to go pick up Patricia from Gwinnett because she went to the Frequency event. I’m so jealous of her, being able to go the great event, but at the same time I feel happy for her. I was glad that my Dad left early because he screwed up so many of the times with the directions on the way, but there was still plenty of time to arrive at the church. It was all good after all. When we arrived at the church, turns out we were 15 minutes early. So for the rest of the time, I talked to my Dad about some of the stuff that went down in my high-school. I don’t know how, but apparently I brought up the topic of weed and drugs. I felt intrigued to talk about it with him because I felt like I knew more than him and had a better knowledge on the subject than he did, but now when I think about it I feel like I know too much about drugs. We talked about drugs and then escalated quickly to matters of what kind of woman I’m gonna marry and how I’m gonna discipline my children and such, such.

Finally, when Patricia arrived, we took her and her recite the whole experience. She sounded she was on weed the whole time because, according to Patricia, she pulled two all-nighters (she didn’t sleep for two days straight) at Frequency. I, myself, understand the pain of staying up all night, so I talked to her a little bit on the way back home about it. When we got home, I was forced to work on my homework and my project for the rest of the time before I had to go to the high-school service which I had to leave to around 3:45-4:00 o’clock in the afternoon and it was already 1:45 o’clock in the afternoon right now. I was complaining about me having to do my project when I wanted to play on my PS3. Unfortunately, I shot myself in the foot and got banned again from the PS3 because I basically told my parents that I wanted my priorities on the PS3 over the weekend, which my Dad did not like at all. I studied the rest of the time, until 3:30 arrived and I decided to watch Shark Tank with my Dad until he finished his lunch and was able to drive me to the church. I left around 4 o’clock in the afternoon to the church and then immediately spotted my friends Sydney, Kendall, Michael (best friend :D), and turns out Elizabeth actually showed up. Shocker. She looked really nice because she had straightened her hair for once and had it dyed red. She also wore contacts, which seemed strange because they really showed the explosion of blue in her eyes, but eventually I got drawn to it and liked it. Surprisingly, I talked to her more than I usually would have. During the high-school sermon a man I wasn’t so interested about spoke and during the time he would just begin ranting about his life stories Elizabeth and I gave funny faces, while Michael started talking to Kendall only. Elizabeth and I teased that they were flirting and they should be together. Overall it was a fun time. 😀

When we went to small groups and then were dismissed to eat food, Stephen and I talked about random things while my friend from Cross Country, Ethan, was visiting today at church and we laughed about some movies like “Step Brothers” and so on. Elizabeth, Sydney, Kendall, and the rest eventually exited their small groups when we were near finished. A girl named Katie was sitting down with us and she was mentioning about this 30 year old who was commenting on her photos on Instagram saying she was cute and she started freaking out and deleted her Instagram account in that moment. I was a bit surprised that she literally deleted her account, but oh well. She wants to do her thing she can do her thing. When I decided that we should go to main service, everyone followed and we went into main service. To my surprise, Elizabeth sat next to me and 1. didn’t leave within the few minutes the main service started 2. talked to me the whole remainder of the time. She nudged on my shoulder a lot and was touchy. I mean, I don’t have a problem with that. Trust me I don’t. I just thought that she would be kind of awkward touching me. But we talked as if we were best friends and laughed so much Sydney had to move seats from us and sit across from us. She gave us the evil glare many times as well. I don’t know. Now that I was Elizabeth, I felt happy. More satisfied with my time. Of course I was mentally tired because we would crack so many jokes and we would confuse each other, but she reminded me of the good ol’ times when it was just her, Mikayla, Taylor, and I in the Gwinnett church in Transit. I was happy I was with Elizabeth today, as weird as that sounds. Michael was telling me right after the service that Elizabeth might now have liked me again but is trying to hate me. Sounds awesome, but I wish to be honest. Though, I know it’s not true, so I try to stay friends with Elizabeth. #friendzoned. D:

After the adult service, the whole group exited and we went into the photo booth posted on the side of the church and took group pictures. It was a nice group moment, then Elizabeth had to leave, giving Sydney and I a hug. That was another weird thing, she actually wanted me to give her a hug. I’m not trying to look for chances, it’s just weird that she’s just being this friendly to me now. She then left and I left and that was it for the day. Just church…

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

A Korean Festival!


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post of my daily life. The song/video for today is a song called Royals by Lorde. I just realized that I’ve listened/jammed to this song for a long time and have never gotten the time to present it to you guys who are reading this. So here it is! Enjoy!

So today was a pretty good day. I got a lot of things done today. First of all, I got to wake up around 7 o’clock in the morning and ate some breakfast. Then right after I tried to watch some Walking Dead episodes on Netflix when my Dad decided to come downstairs and sit down on the couch. Now I was afraid if my Dad started watching he would not approve of the gore and then have evidence that my show isn’t entertaining or worthwhile watching, which would then lead into some other problems. I gave up trying to watch The Walking Dead and went on Youtube to listen to some music. Eminem has been my primary man to listen to for the past few days.

After about an hour, my Mom came downstairs and prompted me to go read some religious book for about an hour to pay off my computer time or so I could play Minecraft. I couldn’t find the book “The Ragamuffin Gospel” so my Mom gave me this other book called “40 Days Living the Jesus Creed”. I actually, without a doubt, enjoy reading some religious books, because they open my eyes to my relationship with God and gives me a greater confidence in God. Once I passed by the 1 hour mark, I wanted to continue reading the book and reach page 100 and then finish the chapter within page 100. Page 100 was apparently half of the book (the book is about 206 pages), so when I came to my Mom and said I read 100 pages of the book she was shocked because I could just finish the book tomorrow easy. I got 1 hour and 39 minutes of reading time to finish all 100 pages and actually comprehend every word I was reading. I find it impossible to see that people read whole books in one day. I am capable of reading a whole book in one day, but eventually I get bored and lose my motivation to read. I have only so far read 100 pages on a book in one day.

I played about an hour on Minecraft and then got off. I was planning to go out and run for 25 minutes to get my muscles in shape. I feel like I’m getting fatter every Saturday and plus recently I’ve been getting a lot of calf muscle spasms. I mean excruciating muscle spasm. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, I stretch my body on command and apparently I seemed to contract a certain muscle on one of my legs which tightens the muscle to a painful point. It’s really painful cause I have to endure it and hope for it to fade away in the next 20 seconds. I’m really worried about the spasms, though. I talked to my Mom recently about it and she said that my legs are used to having blood pump a lot of on a consistent basis since I ran Cross Country till now. That makes sense, but it still makes me nervous to move certain parts of my muscles.

I played Skyrim afterwards for a whole hour and journeyed a lot in the game. I managed to defeat a great Bandit Chief in the game and received a lot of gold. I also found Ebony armor in a chest as I was meandering through the country. Most of what I’m saying you will probably not understand because it’s geek stuff. But thumbs up if you’re following along. I also stumbled upon a house on the farm on the side of a mountain towering over a lake. I entered the house and stole all the gold and valuables I could since it was in the dark. To my surprise, when I exited the house a “Bodyguard” (assuming it was guarding the house) came and attacked me. I killed him easily, decapitating him with a few simple clicks on the PS3 remote, but it was just a weird encounter since I don’t usually have people come and attack me besides the residents of the house themselves. I went back to Riften and started selling more armor and traveled through more caves until my 1 hour went up. There’s so much I can do in 1 hour in Skyrim. It feels awesome!

Once I finished playing, my Mom took my Dad and my brother and sister Anabelle (Patricia wasn’t with us cause right now she’s at Frequency) to Chik-fil-A. I didn’t go because I wanted to grab the opportunity to watch some Walking Dead episodes and work on homework with some peace and quiet. The struggle is, usually, that I always hear creaks from upstairs in my house, which always freak me out because the creaks almost sound like they’re caused by footsteps. Usually when I play the TV on a pretty loud volume mark the noise is drowned away and I can relax doing my things.

Randomly, my Mom decides to call me and says that she wants me to run to Chik-fil-A. I was hesitant (real hesitant) since I wanted to spend time in the house, but I wanted to go and run and do something I wouldn’t do normally. Eventually, I was convinced and ran to Chik-fil-A (they gave me directions to the place), which was about a mile run. So since I was in Cross Country for a period I was not tired at all after running the mile. Rather I felt energized and wanted to run some more. I did have troubles breathing on the way since I got a sore throat around the morning of today. Once I arrived at the store, I talked with my parents a little bit while Matthew (my brother) and Anabelle (my sister) got on the play-house in the corner of the store. Eventually I convinced my parents to buy me a nice cookies n cream ice-cream which I shared half of to my Mom since I didn’t want to ruin my nice run feel.

We were planning to go to the library afterwards, but unfortunately the library was closed the exact hour we decided to check the closing schedules for the nearby library. So, instead, we decided to go to the downtown Suwanee park and turns out there was A Korean Festival! At first, I felt awkward going there, being the only white boy with hippie pants on and a Nike sweat-shirt, but then again a lot of the Koreans there were wearing pimp clothes and Adidas shoes, so I didn’t feel so out of the ordinary. Matthew and Anabelle went into the jumpy house nearby and my Mom, Dad, and I sat on the short half slabs that served as seats in front of the stage. Turns out it was a talent show for Koreans. A lot of the performances were nice just not great. Mostly because the amplifiers were either too loud and static or they were too soft. I left before I could see the results of who won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. I practiced on some parkour on some high stone concrete and turns out I am completely out of shape. I am disappointed in myself truly.

When 7 o’clock arrived, we left the area and arrived home. Then my brother and sister got into separate baths to clean themselves of their sweaty bodies. And that was pretty much it for today!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

Drama with a Girl and Season Finale of Doctor Who


Hey guys! Andrew here! I’ve decided, for right now, that I probably won’t be posting daily about my life. Reasons are time issues, business, etc. So, I guess I’ll update on a few days after awhile so I can re-coop and feel like posting another long post. Because according to the survey on the side of my blog, people have voted me to either post normally sized posts or REALLY LONG posts. So I shall deliver! Song/video for today is a song called Satisfaction by Benny Benassi except remixed by RL Grime. Instead of expecting a “dubstep” remix, expect something different. The genre the song is being remixed into is a genre called “trap music”. Something I’m growing very fond of. Almost more than dubstep. So enjoy! 

So, the past couple of days since I haven’t posted have been quite dramatic. I confessed my feelings to the girl I like, she confessed her feelings back, we went to church with each other and our friends, I got to go experience the high-school church (awesome of course), and watched the season finale for season 2 in Doctor Who. All of course will be explained in longer paragraphs. But, in the meantime, let’s begin with the basic drama love story I’m getting here. Before we begin, though, I must warn you that I will not reveal the name of the girl I like and I am socializing with since I have not received approval to do so and since that is private unless she is okay with that. So I’ll just refer her as “Beautiful E”. Sounds weird, but when you get her name you’ll understand what I mean. Okay! Let’s begin.

So, there’s this girl. Beautiful E. She’s a Christian. At least that’s how I knew her when I first met her in church. It all started out when I went to Walking Wisely Weekend with my friend to Gwinnett Church instead of North Point. I was kind of risking the choice to go there instead of North Point. Reason why I chose to go to Gwinnett. The only reason. Was that Michael was going. Otherwise both churches were bad; full of stinky, showing-off sport jockeys or stupid, annoying nerds. Michael was the ONLY reason I went to Gwinnett Church for Walking Wisely Weekend. It was the best decision of my life. So far. When I went there I made many friends and made a clear image for myself. I was the lady’s man. Wonder why? Well, it all started when my friend Noah at Gwinnett Church was there with Michael and I. He’s a nice guy. Very formal and respective. Almost to a point of being a goody-too-shoes. Otherwise he was good and great and he was my friend. He was trying to communicate with some girls on the bus (we rode on a bus from the church to our homes on Walking Wisely Weekend). All of the girls gave him the “eww” look if you know what I mean. He got frustrated and then I overheard him. I told him “I’ll show you how you talk to a girl.” I walked up to 6 random girls on the bus. At first, they were shocked by how confident I was when I approached them. But then they became more relaxed and I introduced myself to them. 4 out of 6 of those girls I introduced myself to are now my best friends. One of them was a girl named Mikayla. Pretty girl. But a very girly girl. Not my type exactly. But we were best friends either way. She brought a friend over on one of the weeks we went to church. That was Beautiful E. At first I did not find her so attractive. I was chill around her. I kind of wanted to sit next to Mikayla during the service but I did not want to appear as if I did not want to sit next to Beautiful E. So I just sat next to her reluctantly. Eventually a great friendship grew and so did a secret crush. Eventually I became so into her, every time I would arrive around a friend’s house all I would do was talk about Beautiful E. She was all of it. Pretty. Smart. Sarcastic (in humor). And a Russian Christian. Not much of that in the world. 😛

Eventually, though, I made a decision. I wasn’t going to think about Beautiful E as much anymore because due to the past: every time I’ve exaggerated about a girl and how good she was and how much I liked her, that girl ended up to be wrong for me or just mean. I did not want that to happen. So I let it low. But then the more I met Beautiful E, the more feelings I felt for her. I was then growing the balls to ask her out. But then another thought bombarded my mind. Every relationship I had just because I “liked her” ended tragically and in the end we would never talk. I did not want that to happen. So after a couple of weeks of us just being friends. I eventually got a hold Beautiful E’s phone number from Mikayla. Beautiful E called me first, though. The first night she called, we talked for hours and hours straight until 3 o’clock in the morning. Eventually when it was late at night and we were feelings weird and random I finally spilled my feelings for her (this gets to the more recent days of last week). I told her about the dating and why I did not want to date her and the other feelings I had for her. Nervously, I waited for her response when I finished. I was afraid that she was going to be like every other girl I really liked “Oh, thanks. But I’m sorry, you’re not my type.” Fortunately, and luckily, Beautiful E confessed her feelings and said she liked me too. She also said how she did the same thing with me about trying not to exaggerate about me as well. Then eventually down the line we told each other of what parts of us turned each other on. I’ll leave that to blank since that’s private. 😉

Then ever since we kept talking. Until the day that my brother Matthew and when her friend Sydney was over at her house to go to church on the big grand finale to the high-school. Matthew started talking with Beautiful E and Sydney because I started my first face-time with Beautiful E. Matthew started sugar-coating them. Saying in his pitchy boy voice “You guys are so attractive,” which got a lot of “awww’s” and “thank you’s”. I let him do that for awhile since Matthew was not getting so many girls. I just let him have his fun. Up until the point when Matthew started asking Beautiful E to compare himself to me and saying that I hit him and saying that I dreamed about Beautiful E all the time. Which eventually, Beautiful E said with her sarcastic humor “I like you better than Andrew, I hate Andrew.” I knew it was supposed to be a joke and nothing to hurt my feelings. But that sentence really stuck in. I don’t know. I guess I’m sensitive in a way. Even though I hate being sensitive. 

I thought that was just for that night. Next day, Beautiful E rarely even talks to me or comes around me. Even when I tried to stand next to her during the music in church she was rather shocked and told me that she wanted to be alone. She did not even hold my hand when we prayed. Was there something wrong? Then that evil voice in my mind kept humming that it was all after what Matthew did. I was so nervous. Beautiful E did not even hug me when she left. I offered a hug, but then she rejected it. I went full on depressed. I did not want to call her. I was feeling so. Ugh. I don’t know. Just. Frustrated with myself. “You screwed up again.” I thought to myself. Talking to Beautiful E during the day was one of my priorities or something I looked forward to. But my day felt empty. I felt empty. I really did like her. And I was confused if this meant she did not want to have something to do with me or whatever. 

The next day, I sent her a random message through FaceTime. At first, I thought she was at the beach and I just felt like sending her a message just encase she would respond. She responded and she was happy and joyful when she was talking to me. This surprised me a little bit. Eventually it was all cleared up that Beautiful E was not going to the beach until next week. Only she had dance throughout the whole day to occupy her. Eventually in our conversation I had to leave. Then later on in the day I talked to her when I finished watching the season finale for Doctor Who. Oh gosh. Sad ending. I felt sad as well! But I did not cry, surprisingly. Until I saw my Mom and sister, Patricia crying. Oh gosh. Patricia was literally crying a river. Lol. After the season finale I talked to Beautiful E. I felt like a sophisticated British man after watching Doctor Who, so I gave a lot of witty and funny replies when we talked. She seemed completely fine. It leads me to this last question. Is she friendly to me when she’s by herself with me and only then? The question still burns in my head like a magnifying glass in the sun, but I shall go on! All the events have led up to this point in time

Enjoy your time wherever you are! BYE!

Not Sure How To Title This Day . . .


Hey guys! Andrew here! Bringing you a new post about my daily life! This will be quite short because today was unfortunately and surprisingly uneventful. So, therefore let’s begin with the post! Oh yeah! Of course! Forgot to give you guys a song. My apologies. Haven’t posted a “daily life” post in awhile. 😛 This song/video I will be posting for you guys to listen to is a really awesome song. Had it in my head for a long while. It is called Explosions by Ellie Goulding, only this time this song is remixed by Gemini. An artist whom I’ve posted a song he made too, so of course good experience comes from this. Please enjoy, just I like do for this song!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9-O2OfTD5Y

Okay, so in short, for the day, all I did was go to school and focus a lot more than last week. Last week was sort of depressing. I had no motivation to do anything last week, especially in school. It was weird. But I got my mind back in the game and now I am focusing. Unfortunately, I got an 83% on my Language Arts Common Assessment which brought my Language Arts grade down from an 88% to a 86%. Frustrating, I know. I also got an 83% on my Science Test, which I don’t believe is possible because I made better than a 90% because most of the questions were easy. I’ll have that checked tomorrow. I also had lots of fun spending time with Vanessa, Avelyn, and a lot of my other good friends in school today. I discussed with Avelyn a new so called “update” coming up in Minecraft with a lot of amazing new features to it, but a lot of downfalls to it. Gosh. The negatives are so big, though. I spent a lot of time talking to Vanessa during Lunch and Math class. Even in homeroom. I also talked with Eric (another one in my P.E. [not the Korean one]) a lot more. We are growing our friendship everyday! 😀 This will be so corny if he reads this. Lol. A last detail to the school day: Drama was actually a lot more fun than usual. Probably because I was actually paying attention and Brody was not sitting next to me distracting me. I got my head on straight and was able to learn something in Drama, plus I had new people sitting next to me, so that was good. And that seems like that’s all! 🙂

I came home after school and then went to Brian’s house because he so called had “snacks” from the Easter Hunt party they celebrated while I was over at Michael’s house over Friday and Saturday (I did not have time to post about that, sorry). Unfortunately, the only thing I could eat/drink were Cheetos and some small cookies. I took a vitamin that they always had in their house and then drank some fruit juice. They were good, I can’t complain. Especially while I was watching “That’s 70s Show” with Brian. We did not really study, at all. Eventually Brian had to go looking for a Soccer ball he apparently lost while I was gone at Michael’s house. Unfortunately, we were not able to find it and then I left. I went home to study on the computer when all of the sudden Erick (the Korean one xD) came to my door and asked if I could come outside. My Mom did not want me to go outside and she had answered the door, so I asked my Mom in front of Erick if it was okay. Honestly, I was not going to be mad or frustrated if she said no. Though it would have been nice if I went outside. She said yes, but only for a Mom and also to get my brother, Matthew back to the house. Erick and I went outside and finally reached Ascarett’s house. We heard Matthew, Patricia, Ascarett, and Anabelle’s voice from the backyard of the house. More Matthew’s house then all of them and he was the only boy there. Lol.

We tried yelling from the front of the backyard fence for Matthew. To our unfortunate effect, they did not hear us, so we went around the back where the path to the forest also led to the backyard. We did so and told Matthew about how he needed to go home then Erick and I played with my two sisters and their friend on the trampoline until 8:30 near midnight, which was approximately near an hour outside. It was time well spent. When I came back home, I put on some cleansing gel for my face and surprisingly it made my face completely clear of pimples. All there was on my face were scratches, otherwise, nothing else! Great! Then, finally, I studied for my Drama quiz that I was going to have tomorrow. The time is now leading up to now.

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!

I Have Feelings For Someone (Already?)


Hey guys! Andrew here! I’m a little more motivated to post right now, but I’ll try to keep it short like the last post and not so long, so yeah! Song/video of the day is down below! The song is “Daylight” by Maroon 5. Catchy song. Really. I hate how catchy it is. Once I’ve heard it it’s in my head and I keep chanting or humming it. So enjoy and hopefully you have now understood why it’s so catchy.

Okay now to the day. It was awesome. Yesterday, as I talked about in the last post, King came over for Matthew’s birthday party. We wanted Savino to come over as well, but unfortunately he had other plans. So, it was just King sleeping over. Already from yesterday to today we had a memorable sleepover. We always do. I don’t know why, but whenever I sleepover or hang out with my true old neighborhood friends I always have memorable moments. Like last night, just after I wrote my last post we were sent to bed after a brief time and got our beds and sheets ready to sleep downstairs in the basement. My Mom, of course, was nervous and anxious about us freezing downstairs. Fortunately I am cold-blooded –as I like to refer to myself– and filled with Russian blood so I don’t feel the cold as easily. While, instead, my Mom over exaggerates the cold like she’s describing it in a poem with lots of hyperbole. I was reluctantly convinced to wear a T-shirt and a sweater on top with long pants. Eventually into the night I was so hot that I could not sleep and I took off most of my clothes and just left a T-shirt and some boxers. If it were my way, I would just have boxers. No joke. I can’t sleep with heat, even if I’m really cold and I’m trying to warm up.

Into the night, 2 hours later, around 11:30 PM at night, I woke King up from his slumber, right after I went onto my sister’s iPod that we had downstairs in the basement and changed the time to 6:00 AM in the morning, and told King to wake up because it was nearly morning time. It was convincing as well. The clouds and sky were somewhat shading as if the sun were rising, so King seriously thought it was 6:00 AM, but he was also suspicious because he said it felt like a few hours. He then checked on his own iPod and saw it was around 11:30 PM at night and immediately raged. Afterwards, we went to bed and slept through the night. Not together, of course, that would be gay.

The next day, which was Sunday, was awesome. King and I woke up, in reality, early. More like around 7:00-8:00 AM in the morning. My Mom eventually woke up, hearing our footsteps walking downstairs in the living room –as they were in their bedrooms on the next floor– and came downstairs. Suddenly, I felt the need to really play video games with King and also I did not get the opportunity to play Zombies on Black Ops II because I was too busy playing Multiplayer yesterday and owning. Surprisingly my Mom allowed and we had loads of fun. Within 1 hour and a half of playing time King and I played Multiplayer with bots to practice a little bit and got loads of kills. Then we transitioned to Zombies, in which I purposely meant to click the map “Tranzit” but accidentally picked Bus Depot which had NO perks and upgrades whatsoever except Mystery Box and guns on the walls. If you haven’t played Zombies you probably don’t know what I’m talking about. Surprisingly, as well, the both of us reached to round 16. I thought we were going to hit round 10 at the most. We could have even gone farther if I had not messed up, but eh. I’m still happy with my result. After, then,  we played ACTUAL online multiplayer which was a pain in the butt when you were completely unknown to the spawn and where you have people, that actually have played the game, outmatch you. Though I did have a lot of beasting moments. 🙂

Then, when our timer was done, we had pancakes for breakfast. At this point, everybody was awake. I finished 3 pancakes stacked on top of each other and a milk cup and was still hungry. I got 1 more pancake with syrup after I drank another full milk cup and still felt hungry, but I was near satisfied. Matthew then had his turn to play and let King and I play with him because my Mom had left upstairs with my Dad and talked the both of each other together. Everything seemed to be awesome at this point. Eventually, when Matthew’s time was done, King and I went downstairs and I went on the computer for a little bit to check on my blog and stuff like that. Then eventually I went downstairs and figured that my sister, Patricia, and Matthew and King were playing Nerf downstairs. I decided to join in and at first sucked. I tried to rush in and immediately got hit 3 times and lost myself. Though, what then became epic was that we added a speaker downstairs, connecting King’s computer with it, and played dubstep music to get us pumped. Then I picked up the assault nerf gun I got from last Christmas and went ham mode. I was very smart with my ammo. I put 3 nerf bullets in my assault gun and 3 nerf bullets in the previous gun I was using last game, encase for emergency, so I would be able to use both of those guns to take out Matthew and King (I had to shoot each of them 3 times for one of them to get out) –who were on the same team– and win. I won several times and King even laughed, laughing at his constant failure of being outmatched by my skill of weaponry. No joke. I’m very experienced with gun types of games like Paintball, Call of Duty, Nerf, and ESPECIALLY Airsoft.

Afterwards, we took a break and decided to let loose and take in some helium. Outcome: funny voices. We had so much fun for the first 10 minutes we weren’t able to breath. Then when that was done we took a break doing nothing, and then I decided to watch PenguinZ0, which I failed to do yesterday, but now I love him so much. No homo. HE IS SERIOUSLY FUNNY, NO JOKE! King also began to laugh so hard that he got the coughs and was afraid he was going to get sick like yesterday. So, instead, my sister, Patricia, and I continued laughing our butts off and letting them run away to wherever. Lol. Later on, we were faced with nothing to do except relax. King played a little bit of Mario Kart until the day eventually led onto where King left. It was kind of sad. I had so much fun with him. It sucks having so much fun and then having it leave. Anyway, so, once the day progressed up to the point that we were about to go to church, we left to church. Church was great. I felt like I was part of the group. I enjoyed it. I also got pizza. I mostly enjoyed it because I liked hanging out with the girls. Reason why: cause I’m a guy and plus I love talking to girls.

Though, something has come to my attention. There is this girl at church. I shall not reveal her name, because I do not want to mention it without her consideration or approval. But anyway. She’s a girl. My age. Russian, actually, by her ability to speak it fluently and her parents are Russian. She is very pretty. We enjoy talking to each other like friends. She laughs at my jokes and thinks I’m funny. Though she has her own sense of control and humor and does not just DEPEND. She has her own independence and opinion. Plus, she has grown her parts very nicely. Lol. I don’t want to go about that too explicitly, but that’s a plus! Another thing, whenever we sit next to each other during service and worship, she likes for me to have my knee under her knee as we are sitting on the floor and to support her up. Though, I don’t really find that normal. I mean, I act as it is casual and not such a big deal, but I feel like.. her being is being flowing through me. It’s like holding hands with a girl you like, you feel her. You know? Haha, this is going to sound like a love story. Lol. She is surprisingly a brunette. And I prefer blondes! But I really like her. Though I feel conflicted. I even feel conflicted to this moment to write about it. Especially since people read my blog! What if Jessica reads? I don’t want her to feel bad or be angry at me. Plus I don’t want to jump into another relationship. Plus, we’ve only known each other for about almost a month. But I can’t help it. What should I do?

I talked to my Mom about this as I was doing homework. She told me that it was all good that she was Russian and plus she was Christian. She also told me that I, of course, should not go out with her or in other terms, ask her to be my girlfriend, because I’m too young. Plus I could learn from my mistake with Jessica. Instead of actually being girlfriend and boyfriend with Jessica and then figuring out REALLY who we are and having to break up, we could have just been friends. My Mom said, if we are still interested in each other and know more and are convinced we could go out. She also told me this, which was important, that I should tell her how I feel but that I should put restrictions. I don’t know. I feel nervous? What do you think I should do? Leave it in the comments!

Anyway, so all events have led up to here. It’s a pretty long post. I did not mean for it to be like this, but it happened. What can you do about it? Eh. Probably not write as much. xD Besides, enjoy your time wherever you are! I must be off to bed! Bye!

Donations, Girls, School, Lunch … AWESOME DAY!


Hey guys! Andrew here! As I promised from the last post, I said that I was going to present to you a new song or video I would like you to see. This video is actually not a song. Sort of. It’s a funny video with music included. It is called the Harlem Shake. A viral video that has stretched across Youtube and has become almost as huge as the shuffle from Party Rock Anthem. I have given you two of my favorite versions of the Harlem Shake. Boom!

The second one must require a Youtube account where you are 18+ or older. Unfortunately for youngsters, though I got to see it before it was flagged for 18+ or up. 🙂

Okay now to the post!

A lot of crazy and great things happened today. To summarize it I don’t understand how, but I’ll try. Woke up, went to school … actually wait a minute. I did not actually go to the school by bus. I had to wake up early because I had to arrive at the school early to check my recent Common Assessment test I had taken and gotten 80%. Plus I could earn a couple of wings (special certificate prizes from our school) by helping the teachers! I always enjoyed being earlier than others. Not for competition purposes, but I like the school when it is not as busy. Anyway, I had to wake up early. Around 7 o’clock AM in the morning I believe. Then we left around 8 o’clock AM in the morning — where usually I left to school around 8:40-8:50 — and my Mom drove me to school! It was always awkward when she dropped me off at the car riders drop off because there were always SO many people on the bleachers where they sat waiting for classes to start and they would stare at everyone who would enter to entertain their bored minds. This time, I tried to act it a little cool, and act like I was paying attention to the ground or talking to my sister and not so much scanning the crowd. Then, when I got to the front of the room, where the usual security man sat in his chair typing on his computer, I dropped my backpack, took out my agenda, and then left the room like I didn’t care. I mean it wasn’t against anything and I assumed the security man was okay with it because he took a quick look at me and then looked back down. I went to my homeroom class through the building as I went up the 2 staircases up into the second level of the school and went to the “C” wing. Surprisingly it was sincerely empty. No one was in the hall. Better for me so I wouldn’t have to pass anybody and act awkward.

I went to my homeroom teacher, Mrs. Flowers, and got my Agenda signed, realizing also Cameron, a dark-skinned boy, was sitting in Mr. Iverson’s room. I had never seen him in this class. I had only seen him in Health. I gave him a quick “hi” and then went back with a signed agenda to pick up my stuff. Once I brought my stuff into homeroom class I waited around the building. Nothing much to do. I was specifically waiting for Mrs. Harris’s arrival. It took about 30 minutes for her to arrive. Then I picked up the test answers and form-sheets I needed, thanked her, and then made my way. I also helped my Math teacher out with seating just for randoms, then helped Mr. Dyches, my Science teacher, boost a rolling cart full of candies and sodas. I was already full from the breakfast I had back at the house and from the school, so I did not eye at it so thirstily or hungrily. Once that had come to past, the school bell rang which sounded the arrival of the school buses and everyone arrived in classes.

Georgia Studies was quite boring. We just went over our given electives that we had to choose for High School. We barely got to learn anything. Language Arts we took a quick review on The Giver. Math we went over what we learned yesterday about systems and ordered pairs with graphs. It was all relatively easy. Lunch was awesome, though. I had 3 waffles (was supposed to be 2 but I stole one from another plate :mrgreen:) and 3 huge chicken strips with syrup. Cinnamon apples sliced in pieces. And broccoli. Pretty unhealthy, but I wanted something good today! Lunch was also different because as I sat with the girls I was sitting on the other side of the table. I got to see more of the people I usually talked to, which was a lot more preferable. We had fun, and lots of things happened. Though I cannot stress over all details. I got syrup allover my pants, which made me look like I peed in my pants. I gave Courtney and Lucy a hug as they passed by, which caused a ray of questions from the girls around the table, asking if I was going out with either one of them. I got to talk with Mario, and old friend from last Summer. Talked with Avelyn and his friend. Gave Samantha’s boyfriend a pedophile face, which made me chuckle and laugh. A lot more things from now in just one lunch. Biggest thing of all: BRIANA WAS NOT THERE. Woop! Sorry. 🙂

Once we returned from Math class we did our homework and I managed to finish the last problem as we were told to pack up our stuff. Science class was just as fun as Lunch, except with more less events. I earned a Mountain Dew and got to pass it around to others in the class who earned 85% or above in the classes. I got my friend Brian and Nathan to copy over my answers as I was doing vocabulary homework. Leondre, a girl who had never talked with me but hated me with a  passion, actually talked to me while smiling actually and asked me to sneak a soda for her. As I sneaked it she gave me her thanks and laughed. It was a good time overall. We also got to go outside for Science for a little science experiment demonstration thingy. Lol. I stood next to my friend Gizelle (the person who hooked me up with Jessica) and her friend. Gosh, can’t remember her name. xD But anyway as I stood next to her, they started gossiping with me and asked if I wanted to ask Mackenzie to be my girlfriend. She’s pretty. Nice. I love her personality. Complete me. But I don’t want to get into another relationship after I was already in one. I like being single. So I told them “no” and “no” constantly. That continued for until we had to go back into the school building and go to our homerooms. Dropping off my Math book, I waited in line as usual and then left to my connections. P.E. was quite fun actually. I got ACTUAL donations from my friend Haven. Good guy. He gave me an actual $5 dollar. Rare. I know. But he gave it to me for donation of saving for my laptop. Avelyn promised me he was going to give me $20 and then a few of my other friends promised they would give me money. So it’s good so far. Mrs. Turner’s group had to play indoor soccer while the other class got to play outdoor sports or something. It was fun actually. I earned 3 goals for our team, which was nice!

Health was also pretty good. We did bellringers, which is something I dearly dread. Then we went on about learning hormones, private parts of the human body, how the reproductive system worked, and a little about circumcision. I’m a little bit scared now because they say UN circumcised people have a bigger chance of receiving diseases and STDs. Oh God help me! D: During Health class, though, I told Lucy how the girls thought she was my girlfriend after the hug and made a joke saying “Thank you”. She laughed, embarrassed. And then asked what I told them. I said no, of course. But then she said “would it be bad if you were my boyfriend?” and I answered that embarrassed and red cheeks. Trying to find words then she said “I wouldn’t think it would be bad”. At first I laughed at the sentence, but when the sentence actually sunk into my brain I felt completely flattered. 2 girls I could have a possible chance becoming my girlfriend. Including Paige from homeroom who has given me so many hints to ask her out, though I don’t find her quite interesting. Sorry. Then we left Health class afterwards and went to our buses as I talked casually to Mackenzie. We cussed as usual. Talking like boys. And her, ranting about how she did not need to know a single f#ck about private parts and how the body works inside us. Agreeing somewhat, I laughed. Then we separated our ways to the buses.

It was fun in the bus. I got to talk with another girl that liked me called Eladia. She gave me a Valentines chocolate for Valentines which was really sweet then her friend explained to me that she had a crush on me. So yeah. I’ve got the chicks it appears to be. Lol. Anyway, I went home, ate food, gave my progress report I received from Science and got my Dad to sign it. Then my Dad and I went over the common assessment test and now I feel like it is a LOT more clearer to me. Ready for the next one! Then I studied for about an hour and went on the computer for a few until Mom called us for Bible Time and we read the Bible. On an iPad.

Once that was done and we prayed we came to sleep. And now this has all led up to here. As I am writing to you. Hopefully you enjoyed this post! And have a great time wherever you are! Bye!

The Start of a New Week..


Hey guys, Andrew here! Bringing you a new post! This time for my introductory paragraph, I am going to entertain you guys (the viewers or fans reading this) with a video at the very beginning of the post before I start posting about my day. Is that cool? Well, if it is, then good. If not, then I don’t care, we’re doing it anyway! But before I start doing anything different I have to give a firm shout-out to all the new people here on my blog. Hello. Hello. And hello! You guys are welcome. Grab a coffee (or soda if you preferably dislike coffee or caffeine), sit down, relax, and enjoy reading this post! Now for today’s video I am going to star a song. It’s called Thrift Shop from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. BEAST GUYS. 🙂 Here’s the original video right below.

And here’s the clean version for all the goody too shoes. xD

There! Hopefully you enjoy that and get yourself into a good mood right before the post and now let’s begin the day!

So, as I do like all days, I woke up for a start. I woke up quite earlier. Ranging from when my brother, Matthew, and my sister, Anabelle, woke up to get ready for school. Oh yeah, forgot. School is starting. First day of school for the week. Oh brother. I decided to pretend like I was sleeping until they left to their bus and my Mom came up to my room to nag me. I woke up, not feeling as hesitant or rebellious to it since I was already woken up. Put on my clothes, stuffed my P.E. clothes for P.E., and then checked and rechecked to see if I had all my school supplies. Note cards for Georgia Studies. Check. Folder for all subjects. Check. Agenda. Check. Pencils and pens. CheckEverything seemed to be in check! So then I waited for till the bus came, especially on an empty stomach. Unfortunately, my Mom did not allow me to eat cereal before I went to school and said I could eat the breakfast there. Yeah, except that all that’s good daily at breakfast is waffles and orange juice. And trust me, the orange juice packets are REALLY small!

Once the bus arrived and my sister, Patricia, and I, left the house — after we gave kisses to our Mom of course — we rode the bus all the way to the school and then went on with our daily lives. Surprisingly I enjoyed my time on the bus. I got to talk friendly with Erick, Diamond (forgot to mention him; just a Mexican. xD), Brian, and this other kid, who I can’t remember his name at the moment. SORRY. It was good in all. Then I left the bus and as I walked to the doors leading to the 8th graders classes, I saw Avelyn in his average coat up ahead. Unluckily, I was too lazy, people were in front of me, and I did not want to drag too much attention to myself for running to someone. I’ll see him in P.E. anyway. I thought. So I waited casually as we walked inside the school, went into my grade wing, C, got some breakfast, and then entered my homeroom class. Immediately when I walked in, I remembered to go and get my stuff from the locker room, including my Math and Georgia Studies books. I also decided to stuff the yellow jacket I had to wear on in the locker since there was of no need for it and I could just wear a T-shirt. Though, when I walked back to my seat, I saw something very interesting. Actually rather surprising and weird. Malik, a friend of mine (sort of), but mostly a friend of Brian, who sat literally next to me on another table, was crying. I’m not talking about crying just a little bit. He was crying like rivers out of his eyes. His eyes were pure bloodshot red. He looked as if he was experiencing excruciating pain. No joke. I decided to think before what I did would have become stupid and left him alone. Which was smart.

Class then eventually started and we resumed taking notes on Georgia Studies. Then once Georgia Studies class was over, we moved to Language Arts. Language Arts was quite fun. We got to finish The Giver. It was a really good ending, but at the same time, I feel now that I have more unanswered questions. Once again, guys, if you have not read The Giver, you must give it a try. It’s no longer than 200 pages. Yet it took 3 weeks for the class to read it. -.- Anyway, we finished it and then afterwards had to do some classwork for the class. Next was Math class. We learned a new way of doing systems using braces and ordered pairs and graphs. It was quite interesting. I, of course, had more fun talking next to my friend Andrew. Plus Tia was sitting next to me and whenever the two came together, it was always great! Then we moved to lunch and I sat next to the girls this time. I ate a simple meal of a green apple, a few portions of broccoli, and a nice McDaddy pizza they were serving. THE ONLY MEAT I GET TO EAT! Ooh, that rhymed actually! 😀

Then we came back to class after lunch and finished our homework. Unfortunately I was only 3 problems away from finishing my work, though I was too busy talking to Andrew that I laughed throughout the way. Then after Math class was Science. Which was quite numbing because the seats were changed and I did not enjoy sitting next to Amanda and Rosa (two biggest girl troublemakers). Plus the rest of the people on my table were quiet and kept to themselves. What made it even worse was that I could not pay attention to the teacher, especially with the notes, because Amanda kept bugging me. Let’s just say it wasn’t the best class. 😛 I did get to have another Mountain Dew from the class because I earned a nice big 95% on a Science test we had. Which is friggin awesome! Once Science class was over, I went to homeroom, quite impatient from Science class, and barged in and picked up my jacket from the locker. Waiting until the teacher gave our signals to leave the classroom, we then eventually left to our connections. P.E. was altogether fun. Not for me, but lots of other people had good triumphant wins! We played Soccer today and I guess I was set up against an equally matched team. I did not get to score any points, which was quite disappointing, but eh. I’ll try to do better next time!

Then was Health. We did a little game in Health where we talked about parts or organs of the males, females, or both. Very private words were mentioned rather smoothly in the class. Unfortunately I cannot reveal to you because some people read my post, unfortunately. Lol. Once Health was over, we left to our buses as I gave my friend, Lucy, a hug, and then walked with Mackenzie to our buses. We separated once I found my bus and then I entered. The bus time was decent. Not too much, I guess. Then I eventually arrived home. It was a bad start because my Mom had to give my Dad my progress reports that I received today from Math, Language Arts, and Georgia Studies. Unfortunately my Mom read one of my progress report from Language Arts and was outraged when she saw that the recent quiz I did got a 80% grade. She yelled at me A LOT! Let’s just say that! I don’t want to get too personal, because I knew that she wouldn’t appreciate it and I respect that.

So the day went on as I studied and then now I am on the computer talking to you! So enjoy your time wherever you are, I am signing off, now! Bye!
