So Guy and I decided that at least every Tuesday (or every other) that we are going to go to the cheap theatre and see a movie. Last night Guy picked "Tangled" and I must say I would give it five stars and I would buy it! If I was a little girl still, this would be ranked up with "Disney" movies! It has lots of action, subtle romance, bad guys, heroes, princesses, animal side kicks with quirky personalities. (I can't decide who I like better, Pascal or Maximus!) It has a shocking twist ending that will make you think what you'd do in the situation. It's humorous for adults and children alike. It also has songs that the cast sings and they make you want to sing with them! (which I wasn't expecting going into the movie...maybe I just didn't know it was like that?) Overall, it was a feel good movie that just puts you in a wonderful mood! So if you have seen it, go out and do so!
Do you guys agree that it was a good movie? Opinions, please!

A couple weeks later I started my Junior year of high school and that's when everything seemed to change. I was taking Honors English and thats when I met him. This boy in my class I'd never seen before. His name was Cliff and I thought he was really cute right away. I instantly wanted to get to know him so I took the first chance I could at talking to him. We were assigned a worksheet that included stuff about the Ten Commandments and I knew NOTHING about them. I couldn't name the Ten Commandments if my life depended on it. So I casually started asking him questions about the assignmet, had him explain words, yadda yadda yadda. We got to talking and it was pretty comfortable. We started talking even more and when I realized he was a drama geek (like me) things seemed even better. Here was this boy who didn't seem like a jerk, (which was nice because I ALWAYS fell for the jerks!) he was smart, he was dorky, a drama geek, and he got along great with my friends. He went to the same school I did and there was so much to talk about since he was new to the school. It seemed perfect! And sadly, Guy started slipping from my mind...
It was a constant struggle with Cliff and I. From September to April we both knew that we liked each other but I wasn't the ONLY girl he was after...he couldn't decide if he liked me or Sara more... and I was BAFFLED! Why would you flirt with somebody and tell them you like her if you really couldn't decide who you wanted more?!?! And then Cliff made his decision...he asked out Sara. I was completely ticked off so I went to John's wrestling match to take my mind off it. The same night I got a phone call from Cliff. He told me he regretted asking Sara out and broke up with her the same day...I was ECSTATIC! But still...Cliff didn't ask me out.
It wasn't until April that Cliff FINALLY asked me out...I was the happiest girl in the world. He asked me on lunch at school. (Dorky, yes) But I had never had a boyfriend and I waited 16 years to declare that I was FINALLY taken. It felt great! Little did I know, Cliff would change a HUGE aspect of how I treated relationships...Cliff was what I would call over-religious and extremely over-protected...he made me cautious in the future and frustrated later on. We dated for three months until he broke up with me because I wasn't a Christian. It was so random...and I was SO mad he even bothered dating me if he'd planned on breaking up with me anyways.
Guy and I still weren't talking because I was working on getting over Cliff. I really cared for this boy who hurt me so bad. Months after we had broken up Cliff would tell Molly that he was still in love with me. He didn't make the break up easy. I was furious that he would say things like that and not care to be with me. I couldn't understand why it supposedly wasn't right to date me.
Eventually things went back to a normal pace in my life and things were great! It was when I was invited to a movie night that my life started to repeat history again...
Well it was some where around this time that I started to go to a christian school down in fondy. Life was pretty boring since Gal stopped talk to me. She never started a conversation or any thing. I thought she had finally gotten annoyed with me. No surprise there.
Since Gal started to fade a new light started to shimmer. Her name was lucy. She seemed so nice, and she seemed to actually notice me. which is a big change from any other girl I've meet, even Gal. She was my first dance. Shortly after I realize she was one of those girls who will act like she likes you to get some thing in return. In my case, free music. I felt stupid for being.... well stupid.
I didn't talk to many people at that school. I made friends with one of the guys who hangs out with the girls to get closer to the girls. amongst these girls was one named Jen. We never really hung out or any thing but we developed our own relationship. It was a school agenda that we passed back and forth between us for an entire year. It had so much writing in it we couldn't read it any more and we had to get a new one. After a long time of that I decided to grow a pair and ask her out. I could feel my heart beat out of my chest as I walked to her. I got only 5 step away when she stood up and announced to the group of girls that Bob had just asked her to be his girlfriend. My gut lurched but I act like nothing happened. I sat down by her and dove into the conversation about the new couple with the group of girls.
Back down to no one. Every one I like was now seemingly ignoring me, "using" me or taken. awesome!
John and Dan were over one day when we decided to have a little movie night. John invited his girlfriend. His girlfriend invited Gal. I felt like that might get awkward, But that night was amazing.

Tip of the day? Consider what you're S/O is thinking, and not just what you're thinking.
You've got to look at each situation from your significant other's point of view. You can't go on and ramble aimlessly when you're not taking into account how the other sees it. For example: Today Guy and I had an argument. It was about responsibilty I guess you could say. He's finishing up school stuff and is in need of a better job. He's two years behind me schooling wise. We are on completely different planes and I always forget to take that into consideration. He needs to save up to move out, he needs a full time job, and he'd like to go to college. Me on the other hand? I've been moved out for almost two years now, out of school for amost three, have a full time job, and don't want to go to college...so I was really worried today about the future. I was seeing it as he wasn't looking for work and was slacking on school and had no money...in reality, he was finishing school before a full time job consumed his time and not looking into college until high school was done. He assured me that he sees me in his future and we just had a nice long talk about it. In reality, once he finishes school, he can apply for a full time job, save money, go to college, and then be stable...it all made sense after he explained it to me...
I'm glad he was willing to talk it through with me. So just remember...stay calm, and actually listen to how the other person sees a situation before you go and diss it. It will save a big argument!
Question of the day: Do you find it hard to see your S/O's point of view on things?

Right around my 16th birthday was when Molly and I were starting to plan a rendevoux with Guy and Dan...I remember spending FOREVER picking out the perfect outfit and I took a lot of time to curl my hair...hey, I wanted to look good if I KNEW we were going to meet them! So we decided to meet up at the park and just spend the day there together! So Molly and I departed to the park...
When we got there Guy and Dan had another friend with them, too! We were SO excited that our plan had worked and there was no John to get extremely ticked off at us! Hooray!
So right about when we first met we all went to the zoo. I distinctly remember Guy and Dan's friend had poked a huge bird with a long stick and it got really mad and flung all of its feathers out! Yeah...Molly and I weren't too impressed with that... After that, we all went to the playground and in the meantime everybody thought it would be funny to leave Guy and I by ourselves on the walk...I was so mad! I didn't know how to talk to boys at all and here Molly goes completely ditching me. Some best friend! However, we made small talk and it all turned out all right! Later on, we all were sitting down and talking and Guy had tried to show off and run after his friend...but in the process he slipped and fell on the ground! Talk about total first impression embarassment! Needless to say, it was a really fun day and it was just so surreal that Molly and I were able to say that we finally met them!
So after such a good day, you'd think we'd all continue to meet up and hang out right?
Dan and I were biking around oshkosh like always, when Dan got a call. He said a few words and then started to walk over to me with the phone pointed at my face. I knew Gal was on the other end. As we talk to made plans to meet at a park near the zoo. As Dan, rick and I rode up to our meeting spot I saw her. I was one of those times where you really dont want to look away but you know it's rude to stare. I didn't know if my gut could take this level of mixed feelings. I was shocked, nervous, happy, and scared all to the max. we only sat and talked there for a little while. then we went to the zoo. we walked around and made comments about the animals. I had know idea what to say. My fondest memory of that day was standing next to Gal and feeling a small pain on my hand from a mosquito. I quickly swatted it and looked up towards gal, who takes the saying: "I'd never hurt a fly" to a literal meaning. She looked wide eyed and had her mouth open. The only think i could think to say was, "Wasn't me" and I walked away.
After we went through the zoo we started to walk back to the park. on the way there every one walked a lot faster in attempt to make me and Gal alone. I tend to like the one on one thing a lot more then the small group thing so I was happy.
Things started to slow down a bit, we ran out of stuff to say and I started to feel awkward. I quickly made up the excuse that my mom wanted me home before a certain time, Dan caught on to what I was saying but rick was a little slower.
I couldn't stop thinking on the way back home though. I wanted to know what Gal thought.
I wish we would have kept hanging out.

Why was John glaring at us?? How could he have even possibly known about our plan to meet the guys?! We certainly hadn't told him! So Molly and I freaked out and took off out of "Dairy Queen." We did the only logical thing we could think of...we walked over to the lake across the street and went all the way out on the path to the middle. And then we made an obnoxious call to...our friend Francesca...She had a van and we quickly explained the ordeal and told her we needed her to be our getaway van! And so we waited...
Time seemed to be going sooo slowwww and Molly and I were sooooo unbelievably tense we just kept pacing back and forth on the rocks and blabbering about where we think the guys were and what they were saying. We eventually walked back towards the street and that's when we saw them!!! They were biking, Guy, Dan and John, up and down the street and lurking by the Coke plant across from "Dairy Queen!!" What the heck!? And so we continued to hide...now behind the Coke plant. FINALLY Francesca appeared so when the coast was clear we hopped into her van. As we were driving down a well known street in town we saw them ouside a skateboard shop! We finally got a decent look at them!
Now, Molly and I weren't prepared for the wrath of John...
He found out about the whole ordeal and do you know what he did? He IGNORED Molly and I...every chance we would try to call him he would yell at us or just hang up...it was SO frustrating! Finally, when Guy was speaking on the phone, he kept saying John was dead...and I had had enough...I yelled at Guy and demanded that he let me talk to him, and you know what? Guy agreed. =) Molly and I eventually came to good terms with John, but we were still unsatisfied that we didn't get to meet Guy and Dan. So guess what happened next?
Another plot to meet was forming...
so as dan and I biked to Dairy queen, we came across john. I figured that this is why Dan seemed to focused on the time. He had plans to meet up with him. When john got up to us she started to rant about his friends. He was mad at them cause they ignored him just like that do to people that hate or don't want to see. John went one about how he was just riding down past DQ and saw them. Dan started to act funny. he kept looking at me then John or he would just stare at the road. John finally told us which friends he was talking about. It was molly and gal!! I turned to Dan shocked, Dan looked at me surprised. I started to whisper to Dan about how weird that would be.
When all three of use got back Dan decided to go home and John came over to my house. He kept getting calls from Molly and it was kind of annoying. John said I should tell them he doesn't want to talk. So I did but they kept on calling so I told them John died. I was being really mean. I felt bad, but I had to "help" my friend. After I got yelled at I realized I was talking to gal and not Molly. Then i just felt stupid and gave the phone to John. I don't know what they talked about but it seemed better after wards.
After John left to go home I got a call from dan.
Dan:"hey, I think I know why molly and Gal were at DQ."
Dan:"I planned it, Me and Molly thought it would be fun to hook you and Gal up."
Me:"... you know John is pissed, right?"
Dan:"yeah, you think I should tell him?"
Me:"umm yeah! oh and I hate you."
How ever I still need to meet her..
