A Pokemon Celebration

Yay! I am officially girl of the week or something.  Here's what happened:

I was at robotics on Wednesday waiting for it to officially start. At the time we were having study hall and I had already completed most of the work I needed to do so I decided to take a break. I turned on my DS and started playing Pokemon sapphire. I was really enjoying myself when (yet again) I was caught by Mackenzie. This time he came to explore his "new Pokemon friend" and almost caught me with my absol who is named after my crush. Thankfully I had switched to vulpix before he reached me. He started telling me about how he used to play sapphire and what Pokemon he used to beat the Elite Four. I nodded my head (I was still listening don't worry. I'm not that rude) and continued to battle the Pokemon on the screen. He then started telling everyone that I was playing Pokemon, so, a gaggle of robotics members came over and started discussing Pokemon and watching me play my game. Then Mackenzie turned his attention back to me.
"Is this your first playthrough?" he asked. I told him yes, which was kinda a bad idea.
"Aww! Congratulations!" he squealed, pinching my cheeks. Then, he patted my head and him and Jack shook my hands.
So, yeah. Best party ever!!!!!

Not the Kids!!!!

Today is a very VERY sad day. Today, 27 people were killed in an elementary school in Connecticut. 7 of them were adults, the rest were children. Whoever did this must have been sick and we need to forgive them because they don't exactly always think because of their illness(es). We also mustn't forget the kids
For me, it is more terrifying and saddening than for some other people because I have elementary aged brothers and sisters that I love dearly. And I am so glad that the shooting was not at the elementary school that they are at.
So, I don't know about everyone else, but when I get home, I'm giving them all big hugs and kisses and making them some hot cocoa to drink while we watch a movie.

Found Nate!

I saw Nate shortly after I posted the last post. He looked very upset and tried to avoid me, but I called out his name and he smiled a very tiny, sad smile, waved, and kept on walking. I tried to find Lizzie, but she must have already left breakfast and I had to get to class anyways so I left with my heart heavy. Poor Nate... I wonder what happened. I am going to have to find out I guess.
It's been over a week and Nate still hasn't got my iPod to me yet. I asked him about it yesterday and he said he had like 500 songs to download onto it. Yeah...
Also, speaking of Nate, my friend Lizzie is going to ask him if he likes me to save me from a very, very, very loooong period of heartbreak. And if he does like me... Well, let's just say there's a dance coming up in February that I am going to ask about in advance (January maybe) so that nothing happens like last year with homecoming where I asked Daniel too late and he already had a date. So wish me luck!

In love with a creeper and a creeper in love

OK so, I haven't been on in forever but there's a lot that has happened. So here's the update:
After the craft fair Nate kept scaring me a lot more before he died down then stopped altogether. Within that period of time I started liking him and it quickly escalated into the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I am now totally and completely lovesick. I have random laughing fits, I write the best poems when everything I wrote used to suck, and I've cried over the guy twice. Yeah, it's really bad. But hey, I'm getting daily hugs, learning the card game magic, and he's even downloading some of his songs onto my iPod. I'm perfectly and completely happy.
But then there's this other guy named Garrison in my Government class. He's super nice, funny, and friends with my friend Megan and me. But he can be kinda creepy sometimes. Like a week ago he held my hand in class. Today, he rubbed my elbow and knee, and put his arm around me saying, "If I had to choose a girlfriend I wouldn't get one because I want to be with someone I love you know? I can't just get one because I want one or something. Well, I mean not that I wouldn't choose you - I mean..." Yeah. He's a creeper, not really a keeper.
Well, that's all I really had. TTYL! Love ya guys.
