It was a sort of good day for me and sort of boring, and sort of agitating. But, I got through 3 whole days of it, and I’m going to give you a little summary over what happened on those past days in one post. Okay, so here it goes. On Friday when I left from home, giving you the last post about leaving to Walking Wisely Weekend, my dad and I drived in his car, for about 25 minutes ti’ll we got there. There were about thousands of people posted everywhere in the buildings of the church, and the 2nd corridors that would usually be abandoned. If I’m right, the preacher about 4 weeks ago said that there had been 3,000 or 4,000 people signing up for this event. People from ourch church. People from Buckhead. People from another church, and probably some other people.
So, once my dad and I got there, there were slots of selections with last name letters, and we were in the P section. Therefore, we were in a line of almost a hundred people. Though, we got there, just in time, so we got through the line in about 10 minutes. We went past 4 corridors, to my small group. Though, when we ran into August (the son of the parent’s who we were going over for the past 3 days), we found out that our usual small group didn’t have our leader in. So, we eventually found our way, and found another small group. I immediately noticed Michael, Eric, Jonathon, Peyton, this new dude called Ethan and Nathon. Only Michael, Jonathon, and Ethan took notice of me. But, the rest were just too cool to notice me and they only noticed August. 😐
I’ll be honest. When Asa came over after a long time, everybody including me acted like he was the best thing that was coming, I got agitated. Why did everybody go for Asa when he had barely done anything in small groups or in Worship time. Was he the one who gave treats everyone for the past weeks last year? Was he the person who bailed Jonathon from almost getting in trouble with the church minister? Was HE the one who saved Peyton’s ass when he accidentally fell over the baptism bath, and almost made a fool of himself? NO HE DID NOT! I tried to ignore that fact. But, it still kept buzzing in my head continuesly. Though, Peyton already convended something with Asa, August, and Eric. I did not know what it was about. But I sure did not want to poke my nose into the subject.
Eventually when 45 minutes passed, and my dad was long gone, the leader told us before we were going to start our itinerant journey, that we would need our sleeping bags, money and stuff like that (I already had everything besides a Bible since I read his e-mail he sent to my dad). Turns out, Michael’s mom also participated in helping the kids. Ms. Ginger (Michael’s mom) signed up for taking half of the boys of the small group to August’s house. Turns out, August, Asa, Eric, Michael and I were going in that car. Immediately, Ms. Ginger recognized me, and said “hi Andrew”. She hadn’t said it to anybody else since she hadn’t known them. So, when we got in the car, I discussed about some horror movies like the Grudge and the Ring with Eric, and than had quiet interesting monologue with August and Asa (since us three were in the backseats).
Eventually, when we got to August’s house, we had some fun. They had an amazing basement. Though, I knew I wasn’t supposed to take pictures of other’s houses, or else I could get in trouble. August’s mom was very nice, and August’s dad was the only one out of the whole group who had recognized me. August’s dad and I talked about how I was doing in school, and so far, how the experience of Walking Wisely Weekend was. Than, unfortunately, August’s dad was interrupted abruptly by Mr. Kenn our group leader, and he told me to go downstairs cause they had something to do. So, I went downstairs, and immediately noticed the table of Cheetos, Skittles, Chocolate Popcorn, Chocolate melted Cookies, and water bottles. I took everything except for the Skittles and Chocolate Popcorn.
We all played Black Ops all night, except for the time we did small group inside the house, and Mr. Kenn tried to struggle sleeping over the noise Eric and Asa was making playing basketball, and the noise Ethan and Jonathon was making playing Ping Pong, and over the noise Ethan, August, Michael, Matthew, and I were making over the Black Ops game. Though, he was able to sleep. Which surprised me. When we came to the point where we were playing until 1:23 AM, we all went to sleep. Michael, Ethan and I, though, were allowed to stay up a little bit and talk, since we were the calmest out of the rest. We talked about the book called the Warrior which I hadn’t known about, and than we went to sleep.
Once we woke up around 7 in the morning or so, I had to go upstairs and puke a couple of times from eating that food. It wasn’t really that pleasant at all, to be honest. Though, August, and the rest of the kids went back to playing Black Ops. Eventually Michael came up with a compromise to play this new game called Marvel vs. Capcom, and so far, Michael and I were the undefeatable team, until August played me in the 5th round, and beat me. I aksed Mr. Kenn if I could go outside, and oddly, after 15 minutes Ethan and Jonathon followed me. Though, the good part was that some neighbors of August came over in the backyard. One of them showed us this new way to use the rope August had in his backyard that was attached to his tree. It almost felt as if you were flying. Oh and FYI, August had a Treehouse, Tree Hang, 15 huge trees, and a trampoline. So, I felt pretty replenished. 😀
Anyways, when the neighbors finally left with their dog, Eric came around, and was starting to push Jonathon around, and all. Though, everybody knew that I was tougher than everybody in the group. Even though Eric looked bulgish, I was still able to push him, and we would look timid. Eventually, Eric dared me to climb on the top of a 40 ft cliff. I was able to get to the top without falling off. He was surprised. So, I was able to prove to him I could do it. Eventually he went back inside to play with the rest of the kids video games. Jonathon and I eventually went in since we had to go to Stars and Strikes. It was a good time there, for three reasons. First reason, Eric donated money to me since I had no money for food, Second reason, this dude with a huge camera that you would only use for movies was filming me playing guitar hero, and said “Ready to be on Youtube?”. I was so happy by than. Plus, I attracted a crowd of 20 people along with the small group to it, since I was kicking ass at the game.
And the third thing was that a couple of people were donating me credits for games out of nowhere. Now the suckish parts were that I was sucking at bowling majorally. Except for the time when I got a strike, and that some kids were making fun of my hair behind my back. I was sort of annoyed, but I stayed grateful beacuse God had blessed me with that youtube dude, and the crowd of people watching me. Eventually when people started making fun of my hair again, a couple of teenage girls that I’m guessing wasn’t from our church, came and said “shut the hell up!” and pushed them away. I said thanks to them and than they said “Don’t sweat it”. Well, that was the first time I got that from a girl. I just tried to make a joke out of it, and I said I’m not sweating it, and they laughed loudly, though, before I could get into a conversation, Mr. Kenn pulled me out and said we had to go. A bunch of parents signed up to take us places. I felt so much like an itinerant traveler.
Afterwards, the day went over, they played video games, and I stayed outside. So far, a normal day, without paranormal activity. I felt happy, except for the fact that everybody was making fun of me, and skipping me, and acting like I was a piece of trash. It wasn’t pleasant. We eventually didn’t sleep at all this time, and I had sore eyes. It kinda hurt, but it was pleasant that I was struggling like a grownup. Oh and Jonathon and I were checking on each other girlfriends on his Android phone that looked like an Iphone. Oh and when it was near the end of the day, we went to a concert that had people playing 20 songs and people were throwing thousands of streamers allover the place! It was FUCKING CRAZY!
The Last Day
Now nothing that interesting happened today. All we did was get news from Mr. Kenn that we were behaving for August’s mom, and that Mr. Kenn gave us notice that we were going to church so we could be dropped off. So, it was basically the end of the day. So, when we got there, everybody was having fun. Michael and I desperately walked around with Jonathon looking for our parents. After playing with a bunch of 7th graders some game, Ms. Ginger was going to pick me up and drop me to my parents. So, when I got there, I heard that Patricia’s friend was there, and that we were hosting. So, I was the king, plus the church hadn’t looked the same after a long time. So, I realized that Patricia’s friend was trying to attract attention to me, but honestly, she was such a big turn-OFF. Lol.
We got home, and Walking Wisely Weekend ended officially. Now I can only tell you from my private day of Sunday that I got in trouble because my dad figured out about my Facebook account, and that I screwed up badly in Soccer. So, ya, and tomorrow’s my brother’s birthday. 😀
