Ashley.

Gotta go Grandmother’s.  I’ll just leave this here until I get back.

Edit: Back, it went well, but i’m tired, so i’ma go take a rest, then maybe scrim CS

I think I like Ashley.  So what if she doesn’t fit me quite Perfectly.

Edit: 8.14 PM Sunday.  Going to SF for a banquet.  I’ll just write some stuff. (Grandmother’s place hideout)

Senior Picnic Day.

Morning, I found people and learned that I wouldn’t be on the same bus as them, but whatevers, haha.  Then I ran into Ashley, she was listening to Dashboard Confessional, I asked her what her favorite song was, blah blah, i don’t quite remember.  I’m currently looking through every Dashboard Confessional song now.  Then was the waiting in line.  SUCH A LONG WAIT.  Then we got onto the bus, I sat next to Uyanga.  (Hope i spelled that right.)  and we talked, she still said I looked Tibetan, haha.  Apparently it’s my skin tone?  Anyway, we listened to music the whole time there, she likes Techno, then the hour long bus ride ended and we were in SantaCruz!

Wooooo it was hot!  I found some people but then got separated, then went on the LoggerRide with Ophelia and got WET, haha.  Then we tracked em down, they were on the Giant Dipper, Ophelia ran onto the line, but I stayed behind and waited and watched the pictures.  Then we decided to go get some food, afterwards I saw Ashley to my right, and the guys a bit further to the left.  I decided to sit down to her and say hi.  I ate and she did most of the talking, and said that two days ago Stephanie talked about me non-stop.  I wonder about what.  I asked her if that was why she added me on facebook, haha.  Anyway, they all wanted to go on rides, so Ashley took my plate and took my burger away.  =(

ah well, then we went to the spinny hang glide ride, which I didn’t go on because it is circles that I don’t like.  Then Ashley wanted to go Rockclimbing, but she didn’t have the right shoes.  =(  Then came the line at the Ghost Shooter thing, and the pairs were all set up so that I’d sit next to Ashley, but then “Leona came and ruined the order.”  Ashley’s words, haha!  but yeah, I said i’d sit it out, she wound up sitting with Luke, then afterwards we wanted to go on Wipeout cause’ it was hot as hell.  We waited in line then when we were by the corner, we saw that Wipeout HAD NO WATER.  WHAAAT.  We immediately ran out and ran for the logger ride, but Leona vanished and Daniel was holding onto her bag.  We saw Leona across the way, and I said we should throw her bag over to her, over all that water.  ahaha joking, but yeaaaah.

LoggerRide, got soaked again, probably my favorite ride.  Anyway, then came GiantDipper!  DAMN that thing was crazy,Daniel and me were infront, Stephanie and Ashley behind, and it was soooo fun! haha.  I think I finally enjoy roller coasters, before I just liked it cause everyone else did, but that time it was a blast.  Then the pictures were priceless, but the camera wasn’t clear enough, haha.  Then came food, Fries and whatever it was Ashley bought, then came the Ferris wheel.  They went, I stayed behind, mostly cause the pair was already set, and cause’ I was thinking about how the day is over, and this might be the last time I’m in the same place with all these people that I know, and those I only just barely got to know.

I waited for them to be done, then we ran back towards the bus.  Stephanie and the rest took a shortcut, which turned out not to be that short, haha.  Me and Ashley ran down the hill, she was RUNNING DOWNHILL IN FLIPFLOPS!  haha, and then we part ways, I said bye and Nice to meet you, thinking it was the last time i’d see her that day, and then I got onto the bus.

Erica.  Wendroff.  (Hope I spelled that right.)  I sat next to her throughout the rest of the ride.  I fell asleep for about an hour, drifting while listening to music, my head drooping, then I woke, apologized, we talked and summarized, the day and the lives we’ve lived.  I told her about that one day with Ariel, she told me she’d be at BCC with me, though she moved back to Alameda with her family from Berkeley.  I told her about how i’m hoping I get to pull off moving out and moving in with Vedad and CO, and get that job Audrey mentioned for 15 an hour, to pay for the rent, so that I can be away from the family that makes me crazy.  I told her that I felt sad.  It finally hit me, there, on the bus ride back.  I felt sad.  Didn’t cry, =)  but I did feel sad.  Then the happiness rushed over me when we got off that bus, all the smiling faces that I shared that day, that entire experience with.  It was a happy ending.  =)  I walked away contemplating the thoughts and new friends I made.

Then when I came back, I found Ashley and Leona crying on the sidewalk!  Whaat.  Turns out, it hit her too.  Hard.  She was moving away.  They’d be far far apart.  I borrowed the hammer and set it on the floor.  They immediately started hitting each other with it, just like I thought they would.  That, is my lesson in Sadness.  It is a choice.  Almost like a game, or a play, an act that you portray.  After you’re done, you can once again, have some fun.  They cheered up, Ashley asked me if I was having dinner with them, I said yeah, and we walked towards Kamakura’s.  She laughed and looked at me, said that all the times I’ve seen her she’s doing something stupid or weird.  I told her, that is what makes her memorable, interesting, and fun to be around.  =) Do I have a way with words or what.  Though I never got to see her reaction, I shied away like I tend to do, when I find myself feeling praise or happy about myself or the thing I said.  I walked ahead.  Like the stoic Soldier who knows far too much in his head to do battle on the field.  I took the lead, not paying any heed to where I was going, I looked back and saw everyone laughing and smiling, I fell back.

Raymond and Leo wanted to go to Toomie’s, and everyone was about to, but Ashley convinced the rest to go to Kamakura without the two.  I called her Conniving, and that things always work out for her.  =)  Then came the sushi.  I love this place.  The people.  The talking and conversing, me and Ashley talked about 500 days of Summer.  The tea.  The atmosphere.  Expensive, but worth it.  Anyway, I ordered Hamachi and Sake Nigiri.  OH and Ashley eats a LOT.  It’s cause she’s so energetic.  Fast Metabolism, all that, me too.  Anyway, then came the Tea.  The best green tea.  We both love tea.

Edit: I’m about to go out for Tea, Dim Sum, gotta run.  I’ll finish this later.

Back.  Okay.  Back to that one day.

After dinner, the Owner asked us if we were under 21, then everyone but Alan said yes, the rest of us got rice Candy, and he got a shot of Hennessey.  He passed it around, me and Ashely turned it down, then we left for a night on the town.  As we were walking, we passed by a dog and it’s owner.  Leona immediately shouted, “Hey baby!”  and I said ‘The Dog’s cute too.  =)”  The owner got the joke, smiled at me as we walked away, but Leona and Ashley were lost.  I explained that Leona was referring to the dog when she said “Hey Baby,” but my comment of the dog being cute too meant that Leona was referring to the Owner, which made them both laugh when they got the joke.  haha.

Let’s see, what else.. Oh, Banana Smoothie, Leona got one, I took her straw wrapper, made a “flower,” offered it to Ashley, she said it looks nothing like a flower, then she started singing that song.  All American Rejects – I Wanna.  I took a cue from Hitch and said “Wait, who sings that song again?…Oh, maybe you should let Them sing it.”  Yes it was mean, but I explained I was kidding and that it was from a movie.  I did a lot of movie references that day.  Not sure why, though it made me feel obnoxious.  Freedom means i’m free to act like a jerk and a fool if I’m not careful.  Damn.  Anyway, after that we were walking back, I don’t remember much about what was said, Leona left her bike inside the school, as we passed by, Ashley ran to her car and said she was going home cause’ if people want to play Monopoly they’d want to do it at her place.  She went home, and I said goodbye.

Honestly, it felt like she was running away, not even a proper goodbye?  I’d like to say it was because she was getting away from people who wanted to stop her from leaving so that they could play Monopoly, but I could be wrong and I did her wrong, insulted her too much without knowing it.  That’s the problem, when i’m too free with my words, something may come out that is too mean and dishonest in my heart.  That’s the downside then, more options, more observations, more chances to do wrong, as well as to get it right, like Mr. Manno and his Wit.  It’s become apparent to me that we both have .. It.

Then I walked Leona to get her bike, but it was locked.  On the way, she said that Everyone thinks that I like Ashley, because I walked next to her and she said it was cute.  I told her that I just met her.  Then she said that she thinks Ashley likes me too, which really got me confused.  I Just Met Her.  One day?  I get to know this girl for one day, and I find out that she might like me?  and I find myself liking her too?  I mean, are we just so perfect a match?  There are differences, absolutely.  She is to be a Chef, and i’m known for my Philosophy, and Leona said I write very Eloquently.    There is no reason to think that we should Be.  Maybe it’s me?  Being so talkative and so smooth a talker, so chill and so clear, that I can make someone new forgo all fear, and find good favor in the hearts of others?  It’d be arrogant of me to think that of myself, though i’d be dishonest if that didn’t cross my mind.  Then, again, I hate Pride, Glory, honestly, it really bugs me.  Then I’d also feel really bad if she really likes me, then it’s like I led her on.  Though I think she’s fine, she’s strong of mind, and honestly,

Why would she want to start something with a Dork like Me, when she’s about to go to New York City?

Perhaps it’s like Waa says, if she likes me, it’s not something that she does willingly.  It has to take her by surprise, much like it has to me and my eyes.  “It is foolish to look for logic in the chambers of the human heart.”  I suppose I need to stop trying to apply stoic observation and insightful lies.

We stand on the sidewalk for a while, talk and shoot the breeze, then I call my dad and then I’m back at home with ease.

I sleep the night away.  Then day breaks.  On to Saturday.

2:24 PM – Something Wonderful: if anything, it makes it worse.
2:24 PM – Something Wonderful: it seems as if i’m smart without even having to study, but the reason i don’t want to study is because i don’t want to be seen as studious, see.

2:32 PM – Something Wonderful: though, the problem is that it is them that I never see.
2:32 PM – Something Wonderful: I have no lasting connection with those around me.
2:34 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: hmmmmmmmmmm

2:35 PM – Something Wonderful: Ashley, the new girl that I see.

2:35 PM – Something Wonderful: She is a Chef to be.
2:35 PM – Something Wonderful: going to NYU.
2:35 PM – Something Wonderful: it’s funny, cause she knows alot about me.
2:35 PM – Something Wonderful: from my old friend Stephanie.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: who apparently talks about me.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: She says that I am into Philosophy.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: and I met her randomly, at her workplace.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: she made me some chocolate thing to eat.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: anyway, Yesterday, SantaCruz.
2:36 PM – Something Wonderful: I ran into her, not thinking I would.
2:37 PM – Something Wonderful: and from there, I got to know her.  she’s very happy.  energetic.
2:37 PM – Something Wonderful: Then we were about to be late for the school bus, so we ran back.
2:37 PM – Something Wonderful: we split up, I said goodbye, nice to meet you.
2:37 PM – Something Wonderful: then we waited on separate buses to get back to school.
2:38 PM – Something Wonderful: I got out of the bus, walked away for a while, her bus was late.
2:38 PM – Something Wonderful: then when I came back, she was on the floor crying, with my other friend, Leona.
2:38 PM – Something Wonderful: I did what i do, i played it cool, cheered her up, made her laugh, walked with her as we went out for sushi.
2:39 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: o.o
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: she laughed at how the only times i’ve seen her she’s done something awkward.
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: and I said that makes her memorable, and interesting and fun.
2:39 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: why was she crying
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: OH
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: right
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: ahaha.
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: okay.
2:39 PM – Something Wonderful: So it hit her yesterday, that she was leaving and going away.
2:40 PM – Something Wonderful: to NYU and away from all the friends she’s made.
2:40 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: aw
2:40 PM – Something Wonderful: yepp.
2:40 PM – Something Wonderful: anyway.  sushi.  and a whole lot of talking and flirting and getting to know each other.
2:41 PM – Something Wonderful: then we ordered, drank tea, blah blah blah.
2:41 PM – Something Wonderful: then we left, walked back to school, her car.
2:41 PM – Something Wonderful: she ran away fast, cause everyone wanted to go back to her place to play Monopoly.
2:41 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: lol
2:42 PM – Something Wonderful: yep yep.  Then Leona took me aside, and told me that everyone thinks I like her, and that Ashley likes me.
2:42 PM – Something Wonderful: I, being incredible at plausible lies, said that I just met her and I don’t like her.
2:42 PM – Something Wonderful: which is sorta honest, i suppose.
2:43 PM – Something Wonderful: but i’d be lying if i said i didn’t like her, and wish the love grows.
2:43 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: but you cant
2:43 PM – Something Wonderful: anyway, she was a good distraction from Ariel.
2:43 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: 😀
2:43 PM – Something Wonderful: i can’t? can’t what? =o
2:43 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: idk
2:43 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: sounds complicated
2:43 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: lol
2:44 PM – Something Wonderful: =)  it was fun.  she was fun.  IS fun.  fun to be with.
2:44 PM – Something Wonderful: but it’s like..
2:44 PM – Something Wonderful: ONE DAY?
2:44 PM – Something Wonderful: i get to know this girl for one day, and i found out that all her friends thinks she likes me?  and that i like her too?
2:45 PM – Something Wonderful: I mean, am I just so great a guy, so good at saying things, so good at being with, that I can bring compliments so easily?
2:45 PM – Something Wonderful: which would make me arrogant to assume, but it’d be lying if i didn’t think so.
2:45 PM – Something Wonderful: and again, i hate pride, glory, honestly, it really bugs me.
2:45 PM – Something Wonderful: and I feel really bad if she really likes me, then it’s like i led her on.
2:46 PM – Something Wonderful: but i don’t think so, I think she’s fine.
2:46 PM – Something Wonderful: I mean, why would she want to start something with a Dork like Me, when she’s about to go to New York City?
2:47 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: she didnt want to start lol
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: you cant stop people from liking another person
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: i mean
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: we do it
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: but its unnatural
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: dont you feel it lol
2:48 PM – Something Wonderful: There’s nothing Natural about me.
2:48 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: exactly
2:48 PM – Something Wonderful: i’m a machine see, the observer and I’m not Normal.
3:33 PM – Something Wonderful: k. i just put what i wrote with you up on the blog, i gotta get walking.
3:33 PM – |DAWS+Q| Waa!: later
I’ve gotta learn to let go of Logic and Clarity when it comes to finding Love and Peace.
The damage is done.
This battle cannot be won.
the war however has just begun.
The only way to win is to have some fun.

  1. since my non-abstract side is dominating ill start off with that.

    one day in my experience is not enough to create/ forge a bond strong enough to emit the signals of love/like. you have only the feeling of what many calls ” love at first [meeting]”. now im not teacher of true bonds between people, however; i do believe that more time is needed to understand a little bit more of the one you “have a strong feeling towards”. i agree with Waa when he stated that it is only natural to like another human being. whether that is the natural hormones of the male talking or your own power is up to you to decide.
    next you must understand why leona and stephanie said that you both looked “cute” together. they are a compact group of friends that have been with each other since whenever, except leona. once you have learned their reasons for saying that phrase can you truly say that those words were genuine or just an inside joke. oh and why not just use your itouch? you cant play cs on that. you yourself have to decide what you do. and if you do something that you in your mind do not want to do… then we’re gonna need to talk for a long time. until then, write, express, live and move on.

  2. I agree that one day is not nearly enough. I blame Leona for putting the thought into my head. =) Not that it’s an unpleasant thought that I dread, it’s fun to think about what could soon be.
    Waa stated that love has to come naturally, it cannot be forced or chosen. As in, although it makes no sense because she’s heading off for New York and would not want to start a thing with me, if she wants to it’d be because she is naturally compelled to.
    I have no idea what you mean by the rest, but I hope that you mean it in the best of ways, now on to eventful days. =)
