I wasn't on this week as I was on a school trip. "extended study program a.k.a ESP". We all went to a little island "Ujung Kulon" for 3 days. The first and last days were for travel. (5 days total). It turned out pretty fun, but it was more of a camp than a vacation. Went canoeing, fishing, and a 4 hour hike and some other typical camp activities. The boat ride there was the best part though. Slow boat FTW!
When I got home (about 20 minutes ago). I had a big surprise. My driver was hinting that on the car ride back to the house. Know what the surprise was?
Crazy shit. I didn't know whether to be happy or angry. I haven't really talked to her yet. I just sort of locked myself up here in my room. I guess it'll give me a chance to tell her how I feel about this place though.
Meh, I'll see...
So for my spring break, I went to Shanghai in China to visit all my relatives and such. Grandparents (on mom's side), uncles, aunts, and cousins; I hadn't seen them in almost two years.
Since I went with old fart dad we stayed in his brother's apartment. I just stayed there for most of my days there alone (cousin in college) playing Source. I went to some server that opened up the day I got to China. It's run by those "nooby" underaged admins. You know, the ones that always mic spam and admin abuse. The only reason I go there is because no other servers have english speakers and they suck at shooting so I don't get wtf pwned. Only problem is that they change map randomly (usually to surf) since once again, they suck at shooting. At the end though, I ended the main admin and another frequent player on Steam. I think I've found somewhere to hang out now.
Anyways, my cousin on my dad's side... He's a big nerd, lol. He plays a lot of WoW and Ragnorak (sp) online. One note is that he always uses a female character in these games... He also goes on some chat frequently and as soon as I saw some .gif of some ass I thought "damn that guy must be desperate..." My opinion of him has changed quite a bit... :/
My other cousin on my mom's side is also in her second year of college. She must be... 19 or 20 years old by now. She's gotten... very pretty and is still the nice and intelligent person she always has been.
Don't know what else to say... the week's been alright, and I really don't feel like going back to scrub school. Ugh...
EDIT 4-2-09: Best April Fool's joke I have seen any web site ever pull off. Lmao.
A week before yesterday I went on the plan to Moscow, then to Singapore. Russia's not bad really. There was snow but the girls are pretty good looking :S
Singapore sucked, but now I'm in Indonesia, it's even worse. I hate the food, it rains every day 3-4 times a day, srsly. Not too much to say, but I should email/phone all my RL friends back in Texasss.
EDIT 2-15-09: I started school last Thursday. I mean, it's not bad, I just have to find my group/clique/whatever. Still, nothing compares to home. And I mean there is some good looking girls but they're all from Texas in the first place so that doesn't really count. (lotta people from Texas)
This weekend I went on a crazy adventure to a beach and then on a crazy boat ride to some island in the middle of nowhere. Talk about fucking dangerous shit. The gov wont let you do that stuff in the U.S. But Captain Jasmen and his crew were pretty gangster. I threw up on the 3 hours to that place (waves were fucking huge in a tiny ass boat). The way back was a lot calmer but meh. Man, sand up my ass.
And happy Valentine's day.
EDIT 2-24-09: Last morning my mom left us. She's off to visit her parents in Shanghai for 5 days then heading back to Houston.
Both yesterday and today we watched "Schindler's list" in "Humanities class" (supposed to be social studies). Touching story.
I'm really missing Texas right now...
EDIT 3-1-09: Went to a schoolmate's apartment yesterday. Played some Brawl, GoW, and Halo 3. I think I beat him too badly in Brawl so we played GoW a lot... tbh, I don't like him a whole lot. He's one of those "anti-social" people. Plays a lot of VGs (but not very good at them), doesn't have much friends, not very athletic.
After that went to my Dad's "new friends" apartment (in the same complex, isn't that convenient?) Met two guys both in the 9th grade. They were pretty cool, played a lot of Dota (which I don't find very entertaining). Stayed until like midnight though. We played some basketball, soccer, and... dota.
Today! Went to the mall the whole day pretty much... woke up at 10 from the night before, late breakfast, went to the mall for lunch at 3 pm. Then wasted time in the arcade playing some racing game (midnight something something 3). there, we met some very... fat and annoying indo kids. (who play that game way too much). God damn. It seems like the older locals are really nice, but this new and young generation is full of rich, arrogant, annoying faggots.
Well, I need to get in touch with more people back home. I did join a Touch rugby club last thursday, but I'm still trying to fit in sort of. I also heard that someone I know back in my old school punched another person I know in the face. Victim's nose "explodes" and starts bleeding like hell, perpetrator gets In school suspension for a week. Man, things got out of control...
omgomgomgomgomg this place sucks.
EDIT 3-6-09: So it's been a month and things haven't gotten any better. Maybe even worse. Ok, first off: We had to watch their suck-ass basketball team play against some underfunded schools in indonesia. And they lost, they suck. they airball more than they actually score. And they're so damn cocky. Don't you hate people like that? They suck ass but they talk shit like they're hot stuff or something.
Secondly, I got a cast on my toe. Hurt it by "touch rugby", which is ridiculous since I never hurt anything while playing tackle football. Can't do anything for four weeks. What a bummer.
I can not believe this. It's all just a dream... any minute I'll wake up now! Yeah... just a dream.
I am so pissed off. If you read a while back, you'll see that my dad had applied for a job overseas. But there were many people going for that same position. I never thought my dad could be so lucky (or I so unlucky).
So in a few months or so, I'm moving to Jakarta, Indonesia, the capitol. I've been told it's a big city. But, on the other side of the globe, in the southern hemisphere, in a country filled with Muslims... I'm upset of course.
But it's not all bad, don't think it's some bum city, because it's not. It's a big, upper class city. Like... New York City or Shanghai, or Hong Kong. Apparently, I'm going to an "international" school. Like, the ones for uber rich people, except my dad's company (Chevron oil) is paying for all of that. I'll live a "luxurious" life. Just without my friends or my mom. (My mom's staying behind).
However, the best part is, I don't have to stay there forever. I can choose to come back and just continue school here. Great, isn't it?
My parents are going there just to see what it's like for a week. In the meantime, I'll have a "nanny". Hmm, I've had them before but long ago, but my parents still were there. It's going to be awkard, living in the same house as some 25 yr old college graduate. But she seems like a nice person, and it's just a week, so it should be fine.
And My dear SSBC members. I may or may not be able to play due to lag and time zone differences. But I guess it would give me a chance to play with our Australian Users.
Well, some of my dad's co-workers who also moved to Indonesia, said it was great. Huge house, so you can "constantly have parties and sleepovers". The people there are all rich "of course" (I'm going to a International school. No native scrubs). you also have personal drivers so you always go with friends to the mall or whatever.
Man, this doesn't sound bad at all. Of course, it could all be made up, but I mean... damn. Now I'm afraid that when I move, I won't want to come back.
EDIT 12-13-08: So my parents left today, for their trip to Indonesia. But they said they were also going to Singapore and Moscow. Meh, so I'm having a nanny for a week. She seems nice, hispanic, and pretty young.
I won't have asian parents to boss me around, but it's kind of awkward... Oh well.
EDIT 12-16-08: My first semester exam was today. Science, I did better than I thought I would. I have five exams in total. Technology tomorrow, algebra and English Thursday, and U.S. history on Friday.
Man, once these are done, Winter Break, awesomeness.
EDIT 12-19-08: School's out! I had to take some pre-entry exam into the new school. But I was pissed, I was not informed about this. Oh, and on the essay the prompt was "what makes an ideal vacation". I wrote "anywhere but Jakerta, Indonesia".
EDKT 1-3-09: Hope you guys had a happy new year. Anyways...

Reason for ban: You have been banned for posting in a spam thread, entitled "Fuck Yeah I'm Cool.." This only fuels the flames and keeps the topic alive. This is a mandatory ban."
Man that topic was pimp though. How was I supposed to know it was a spam thread? I mean... it was about this mexican saying that he used to smoke with a friend and he "missed that nig". And there was a pic of em flickin' us off, and being cool. Man...
EDIT 1-20-09: 10 days left until I move. Mostly everyone knows by now, but I don't think any of my teachers do. And there is still a couple more people I'd like to talk to. I shouldn't be telling them this at the last minute, but well... I don't want to break up crying. The 31st of January, a Saturday. Day before the Superbowl, pretty nice timing by that old guy I have to live with.
I plan to make a huge ass note on Facebook this weekend (also my last). Pretty much this but with some major parts cut out and tweeked a bit.
Also, I had rage today. I dunno what happened but I got so pissed that when I was standing my nose just started bleeding. Asshole offered me a tissue but I just crumpled it up and threw it in his face. Then walked upstairs. wiping the blood on two of his best suites (they were white too). He later came to my room (unaware of what I had done) and asked me what was wrong. Of course he knew why I was upset (duh). I told him to get out, and he left. I plan to make the last ten days here hell for him.
And tomorrow I'm going to a school basketball game. I figured I should since I haven't been to any before. And it's against probably our biggest rival school. Too bad it's a home game though, I would have liked to go inside Beckendorff at least once (I never have). And it's always a good feeling to win on enemy turf, ya know what I mean?
Also have my last ortho appointment here tomorrow, right before the games. And I changed the super sad face to angry faic.
EDIT 1-21-09: Yeah, I went to the game(s) tonight. We won all three (of course) C team was 27-21. B team was complete slaughter. 66-36. A team actually got really intense at the end. But we eventually broke through and then they just desperately fouled again and again for the last minute of the game.
I wish it had been an away game since it would be even greater. Plus, I've never actually been inside Beckendorff.
I saw a friend (that was in my latest huge ass blog) after the game. She didn't say hi though, maybe she didn't recognize me. Meh. Now I feel like a fool for not saying something to her which was probably my last chance.
Had a lot of fun, but it was time consuming as hell. 4:30 to 8:15. Now I have to go write an essay about the Holocaust. :/
EDIT 1-28-09: So last night I went to Target and got myself a little journal notebook thing. Not as a diary, but for people to sign. I got maybe 20-30 signatures and most with notes that took up a whole page. (It's a small book btw)
Today was also my last day of swim practice. (We get Thursdays off and there's a meet on Friday so there's no practice). Too bad, like three people I wanted to sign my book weren't there. I don't know where Samantha disappeared off to either. Kind of leaves me hanging, you know? But I still got like 15 or so, including my two coaches. Great guys.
When I got home the "MGroup" was at my house. Packing everything. No couch, and no desk, lots of stuff. So uncomfortable... I might not even get to play tomorrow because of this.
EDIT 1-30-09: Leaving tomorrow. I got maybe 60 people to sign my book over three days. They're not strangers or anything. I know these guys, I'm cool with half the grade at my school. I cried a little at the end of the day...
I was very sad but when I got home and saw my dad I just instantly flew into a rage. I attack him and in the end all I got was an injured wrist.
If I plan on running away, tonight (or rather early tomorrow morning) would be the time to do it. Love my school, love Texas, love America.
And Malachy banned me for a stupid ass reason. I think he's getting paid more for more bans, srsly.
Well, I'm going to miss living here, bye.
edit: change that 60 to over 100. I had no idea I had so many friends here. Time to PM Malachy asking him to unban me so I can make some goodbye posts.
Most of you already know that Thanksgiving day is this Thursday! So, my break from school starts tomorrow, and I'm back in school on Monday. A little shorter since we have an extended summer break. (which I really don't like)
My family and I are going to a neighbor's house for their annual thanksgiving party. Good food. And I can always just walk back to my house after I eat which takes 2 minutes.
Not a lot of homework either, which is great.
So, what are your plans for Thanksgiving?
EDIT 11-27-08: So today's thanksgiving! But there's one problem... I've been banned! On thanksgiving! There goes my month long period with no bans. Boy is Malachy cranky on Thanksgiving. Cooking for yourself are ya?
Well, I'm going to eat dinner now.
and if you can't see. I was "being an asshole to the OP with no intention of joining his/hers shitty club.
Merry Thanksgiving y'all.
School was great. Everyone was pretty nice today. Got some pretty "posters" and other stuff. But also a lot of homework.. meh, I'll do it over the weekend.
EDIT: Went to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner, "Todai". Just some japanese buffet. We went there last year and the year before since they had free dinner if it was your birthday. Had, but not this time. The whole restaurant was a lot darker, too dark for my tastes, and it had been repainted and such. I didn't like it. It looked more "upper class". They also took away my best friend, Todai the mascot. He was a life size statue who welcomed you when you walked in that door, he was a pretty cool guy.
EDIT 11-23-08: What a party. Invited five other friends. Just hanged out, played football, videogames, etc. Surprisingly, I'm not that tired.
New blog coming tuesday.
Today, afterschool, we had a party. Completely free and hosted by the school. It was OK, but pretty boring. Here's the important part though.
After the party, my ride ditched me. Partly my fault since I was wandering off... So I had no choice but to walk, which was a good thing. My feet hurt and my left leg hurts too. But I gained something valuable. A friend.
I walked with two other girls and two other guys. They later had to turn so it was just me and the other dude. He was kind of tall, black, curly hair. Just moved from Florida over the summer. We got to talking and he was telling me how he used to be a nerd, had short hair, and was just different. We got to know each other, and it was great to say the least.
So here's what I ask. Have you ever become friends with someone suddenly even though you thought you probably wouldn't have?
Well, in 4th period, Ms. Drom did her famous "rock rap". (science class). Happens every year. Just some crazy woman in her 30-40s dressed in "gangster" clothes doing some rap that she wrote, about rocks. It was interesting to say the least.
Secondly, my best friend's girlfriend broke up with him. She happens to be a friend of mine too. I haven't much clue as to why she did it, but I think my buddy was a little upset. Hmm... Worst part is though, she didn't really feel sorry. I don't know if this is with all girls but they usually give each other high fives and whatnot whenever they dump their dude. Don't think it's the same case as guys, but could be. Ah, I hope he isn't too upset.
for clarity: She did not give out high fives or anything. And I was mis-informed. HE broke up with her. She was just "OK" with it.
Damn, this is confusing.
