My recent life in a not-so-small nutshell.
I fell off my bike on the way to camp (on the last day of camp). I got a big ugly bruise on my leg.
The last day of camp happened. It was sad because I love camp. My site director recommended me for site director next year (if there's an opening), so that was really cool. One of my campers had been promising for days to sing the Bob The Builder song on the last day and he did. It was cute.
My family went on vacation. We were going to ride bikes on some bike trials in Wisconsin. My littlest brother keeps trying to do these tricks on his bike. So, I was riding behind him, and then he stopped. My bike (which is a hybrid) doesn't stop very well on loose gravel trails. I ran into him and fell off the bike. My right arm is now a nice shade of green (aka, bruised) and I have a big bruise on my right thigh. When I get to school, people are going to think I was abused at home, with all these bruises. In addition to the bruises, my fall caused my odometer to break, and dented or bent my front wheel. (I have never fallen off my bike before. So the fact that I fell off it twice in a span of three days was interesting.)
The computer died
. Someone came out to insert a new hard drive. When he was here, we had this conversation:
Guy: Do you know what's going to happen when I take out the old hard drive?
Me: I'm thinking we are going to loose everything.
Guy: Yeah. Some people don't realized that. And then when I'm done, they ask me how they get to all their old files.
I got the Kensington USB Fan
which I have been wanting ever since I first saw it. Only, I got it for a lot cheaper than they sell it over at ThinkGeek
I became one of them
. I got a cell phone. It, oddly, is roaming at some places in my house. I don't get it. But, I got to pick the last four digits. They are B-HPE. (Try to guess what that means!)
I went to this resale shop they have in my town. It is open like, one day a week. And they have no sign on the outside. So no one knows about it. Except my sister who somehow found out about it. Because where I live, people decide they don't want their expensive brand name clothes anymore, just because. So then people like me go and buy it for really cheap! And it's funny because I don't care that stuff is "name brand". I actually feel kind of self-conscious wearing a Juicy
shirt. (And I am really very scared now. Looking for that link, I went to the site. It's quite terrifying. Especially if you listen to the "Story".) But I am happy that I found a sweater that both fits me and costs $10.00. And I got two pairs of jeans for $8.00 each! Yay for resale shops.
And, I just had this conversation with my friend (we were talking about who was going to drive for tonight's plans):[20:20:31 08-15-2003] dancer1193: i assume i'm driving?
[20:21:24 08-15-2003] SouprGirl1: if you could. i do have a car. except, the rearview mirror oddly fell off a few days ago. and we haven't gotten it fixed yet, so my mom isn't too anxious to have me drive it until it gets fixed.
[20:21:40 08-15-2003] dancer1193: are you kidding??? mine did too!
[20:21:46 08-15-2003] SouprGirl1: really?! lol.
[20:21:47 08-15-2003] dancer1193: yea
[20:21:51 08-15-2003] SouprGirl1: that's so weird. lol.
[20:21:55 08-15-2003] dancer1193: yup
[20:22:11 08-15-2003] dancer1193: i can drive though, it's alright
[20:22:17 08-15-2003] SouprGirl1: i've never heard of that happening before. and it happened to two people. weird!
[20:22:24 08-15-2003] dancer1193: yea, seriously
Have you ever heard of a rearview mirror just randomly falling off a car? I certainly never have. Very weird.
I was at The Great Indoors
looking for a comforter for my bed at school. And we went past the paint section. I decided I wanted to make some sort of collage out of all those paint sample squares. So I took one of lots and lots of colors and I'm going to create "art". (It will be of the abstract contemporary variety, I'm sure.)
And that is what has gone on in my life.
I'm leaving for college in (*checks date on watch*) one week from today. It is starting to become real. Eek. I'm going to be in college.
