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.
