Taking things a day at a time

Summer ends, school begins

So I've had all my classes and I think it's gonna be a challenging year. Yesterday I just had Hawaiian 101, and today I had Hawaiian, Intro to Visual Art, and Math 73. It's strange that I have 4 days of school now, instead of 2 like last semester. It sucks major balls.

I'm surprised I know 5 people in my class. Sam and Beth (Amanda's twin sisters), Kalsie (old classmate from elementary school's younger sister; half of a set of twins), Joni ('06 grad from KS) and Kili (Wayland's sister). Hopefully this class goes well. I'm really not a language person, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this one will be enjoyable and I'll get through it.

Art: Since when were students punctual?! I swear, I got to class maybe 8 minutes early, and there were only 3 open seats! Everyone was there, which I thought was odd. So I had to sit in the front row. But that doesn't matter since I'll pick another seat on Thursday. Hehe. It's basically gonna be like Art History in high school.

Math: FUCK MATH. Today we did fractions. FRACTIONS! God I seriously hate that I'm in math 73. This is gonna suck, because we'll be doing things that we did in middle school. Goddamn. And I mean, at least I won't be struggling too hard with it, but at the same time, I'm wasting a whole semester's time AND the money I had to pay for this class. >_<

Oh, and there was this kid in my math class, who was clearly from Australia. His accent made me giggle inside. :) Why do Americans love accents? Because we're lame and don't have the cool ones. But I think he's switching to another section so I can't laugh and enjoy his accent. So sad. He handed a sheet of paper to this kid that was sitting in back of me and said, "Cheers, mate." I had look down at my paper because I was smiling too big, on the verge of teehee-ing.

I'm just concerned with how i'm going to handle this semester. With a language class that'll be a struggle, with math that I'm probably gonna be bored in, and art which calls for a lot of out of class time, it's gonna be a lot less cruise compared to last semester. I have classes 4 days a week instead of 2. And I'm working during the week. So this is gonna be rather stressful. :/

Also, I saw my old classmate's younger brother. It was really strange, because he looks exactly like his sister - my old friend - but since I haven't seen him since he was, like, 9-years old, I was super shocked to see him. He's so grown up! Man, it makes me real nostalgic. And the Ryan (that's their last name) family has always been a good looking family. It's funny because Cheynna was SUPER tomboyish in elementary school. She'd whoop all the boy's asses at anything during recess; dodgeball, tetherball, basketball, she was on the track team and owned. But then in high school, she turned SUPER girly. Now she models and is basically one of those hipster kids, you know? As far as fashion goes, I'd say she's a hipster, but more alternative and junk. Anyways, she was always pretty, even when she was covered in red dirt. She'd wear her hair in a low ponytail and wear her brother's clothes all the time. Now she's very...femine.

Anyways, her two younger brothers look just like her and they're all good looking. Christian used to be chubby, but I guess he got rid of all that baby-fat and now he's pretty damn attractive. I was sort surprised that when I saw him today, he was kinda...all by himself. I saw him walking around before class started, and he was walking by himself, and I didn't see him once fiddle with his cell phone, which is what most kids walking by themselves do, y'know? Then in between another class, we were sitting in the same area for a long time, and he seriously just kept to himself. No friends sat next to him and he didn't once touch his phone, again. I don't know, I guess I expected him to be real social and stuff. Granted, his friends probably just weren't there today or something. But I have to admit, he looked lonely. I mean, he looked lonely, in his face. It was kinda...sad.

But, moving on. So have you guys heard of The Lake? Probably not; it's an online webseries show thing done by the WB. If you Google "The Lake WB" you'll get the site that the videos are at. I got a free episode on iTunes which is how I know about it. It's basically about these teenagers that spend the summer at this lake on the east coast. It's got a typical plot and scenarios, but since I watched the first episode I can't help but go online and watch the rest. Don't you hate when that happens?! I do. Haha. But I mean, the show's all right. Although each "episode" is only about 10 minutes, and each Monday they post 4 "episodes" so you basically get a regular, full-length episode each week, like a normal tv show. Anyways, if you have nothing to do and don't mind generic summertime teenage storylines, check it out.

At work yesterday, Heather's boyfriend broke up with her. He called her and then she broke down and cried and I didn't really know what to do. This is the SECOND time that the girl I was working with got dumped during our shift. First time was Ka`ena a couple weeks ago. I text Jamika about it, and I told her I really didn't know what to do. I don't know them all that well, you know? So, it was slightly awkward. Okay, more than slightly. But thankfully it happened close to closing time. It made me wonder, though, if/when I ever have a boyfriend, and we break up, what am I gonna do and how will I react to it. I thought about it for a while last night. And I guess I can't really predict what will happen. Ha. Even if it'll happen.

And since I'm on the subject, I'm saying this again: I HATE it when my friends tell me, "don't worry, you'll find someone eventually" or some other bullshit like that. Like, "You're so adorable, Zaida. Guys don't know what they're missing" and "Don't feel bad, a lot of people still haven't ever dated either." -_- Yeah, I don't want this pity-party, thank you very much.
