When was the last time you had fun?

Today, I had a really fun day. I know that line sounds boring, but its been such a long time since I’ve actually had…fun.

So I came back from work at around 4 thinking I’ll just go to sleep, but instead I went out with some friends because they wanted to go this ice cream shop. I didn’t really want to go at first but I thought, why not?

The ice cream place was dimly lit and music played loudly over speakers. In the back, there were arcade games and lots of pinball machines.

I wanted to play so after I finished my ice cream, I got two quarters and put it in the pinball machine. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve never really played before, but I didn’t know how where the buttons were. Which ones make the levers move up and down?!

My friend came over and made fun of me, complaining that she had to teach me how to play such a simple game. The buttons were on the sides, by the way.

After that game (which ended quickly), I played whack a mole and slammed the things popping out as hard as I could. For some reason it made a loud sound when I hit it, so everyone around, including me, were surprised at my lack of anger management…

Lastly, we played the best old game ever, Ms. Pacman! We all took turns playing different rounds. I don’t know why, but after we lost our three lives, the machine still gave us about 4 more games. Everyone was like, when will it ever end?!

So after the arcade, we all stopped and looked at each other with the same question, what do you want to do now?

I had bought a volleyball/badminton set a week ago for ten dollars because it was really cheap so we decided to play volleyball in a large open field near my house.

After twenty long minutes of reading the instructions and seeing how certain parts were not how they were portrayed in the instructions, we improvised and ta da! Here’s our hard work!

We played until it got dark and my team won 2-1. =) I’m not breaking the net down, it’ll be too much work to put it back up later so I stuffed the tall poles in a lonely corner in my room…

Anyways after this day, I didn’t feel tired when I got home for some reason. Usually I feel really exhausted and just want to sleep, but instead I got home and actually felt like working.

I hope to do more things like this and have more fun summer days! =)

Even though it’s already near the end of August…

Here’s a lesson: Don’t waste your precious time!


Checking Out Them Legs.

As we, (Me, A, and N. “temporary names”) were standing at the back yard gate waiting for our friend…E (that’ll be her code name x), A says, “Doesn’t E look weird today because she’s wearing jeans? Cause she usually wears legging.”

We all turn our head to see. E is busy locking the door and we know she’s barely out of earshot.

“Oh yeah, she is,” I reply, acknowledging the fact that she is wearing jeans today.

“Yeah, isn’t it weird?” A says as our eyes follow E. “She always wears leggings.”

N laughs and jokes, “We’re talking about her behind her back now?”

E walks towards us with an unknowing expression.

I shout loudly from the across the gate, “Hey E!”

E looks at me confusedly from three steps away and says, “Hm?”

“We were talking about your legs!”

N laughs, hits me on my shoulder, and says, “What?!”

It’s true, cause well, to see what kind of pants someone is wearing, you’d have to look at their legs right?

“Don’t try to lie. I know you were looking at them too,” I defend myself.

“Creeper!” E laughs.

Everyone laughed and I just had to explain E what the context was.

She still called me a creeper. ^_^

Friends Like Gossiping about Your “Love” Life.

It’s true. Friends will always gossip about a “blossoming” love between you and someone else only because you get along with that person. Or, they’ll try to hook you up with someone just so they can gossip about it.

I remember in third grade, I hung out with my two best girl friends plus this other guy who just started to play with us during recess.

Remember recess? That was fun, wasn’t it? And remember when we used to say “play” with each other? When you get older, to be cool, you say, “hang out.”

Well anyways, during class, the teacher paired everyone up for a science activity. She paired me up with the guy who started playing with us. Ironically, my other two best friends were paired with each other. Now, I wasn’t really close to him in the first place. He was more closer to my other two best friends, but I wanted to get along with him so I thought, Okay, this is my chance to be better friends with him.

The science assignment was some lame write down your observations of the objects in these circular, pill-holding looking containers.

In one container, there were these I think it was dried onions or something. As we were writing down our observations, I told him that they looked like dried fingernails because well, it did. He thought that was really funny for some reason.

I said, “It does!”

He laughed again. We continued picking up the objects with the tweezers that were given and wrote down some more observations.

Then, we accidentally dropped the pill containers and the onion spilled on the ground.

I decided to play my joke again, “Oh no! Dried fingernails are all over the floor! Help me pick them up!”

He burst out laughing. I guess it was still funny. From the corner of my eye, I could see one of my best friend whispering something to the other. I couldn’t hear perfectly, but I can correctly assume it was something like, “Ooh they like each other” or “Do you think they’ll go out?”

Isn’t that weird for third graders to think like that? But they do, you know? By a young age, many kids are already thinking about love and going out with someone. Just today, I heard the kids around my block gossiping and stirring up trouble saying, “Hey, you know he liked you a few years ago?”

So if kids are already trying to set up other kids to go out with each other, isn’t it possible for much older teens or even adults to do that?

I wouldn’t know. But, you would think that people would be worried about their own love life before gossiping about others, right?

All I know is that if a person knows someone who they don’t want to date, they’ll probably try to set that person up with their friend just to have fun and see what happens.

Why? Because people are like that.

The Perfect First Date Song.

I found the perfect first date song.

To explain, if your first date (assuming it was a good one) was part of a movie scene, this would be the song that would play during your montage. It’s Flower Drops by Hanatan.

I’m listening to it right now and I can just imagine a young couple on their first date, having fun at the mall or at the zoo.

Ooh, now they’re getting ice cream and eating it together on a bench.

The montage of the day passes by. They’re having so much fun just being together.

The romantic couple is now sitting on grass looking for a small blooming flower, feeling the soft wind blow past them.

Hey, wait a minute…

Anyways, it’s such an upbeat, happy song, isn’t it? I really like it when she sings “kimi dake” for some reason. x)

The first time I heard it, I thought wow, this is the perfect first date song. When I go on a date, I think I’ll put one earphone in my ear and put this song on repeat. It’ll be kind of like my background music. And when he asks me why I have earphones on during our date, I’ll say oh, I’m listening to our song!

That’s totally not creepy at all right?
