She called out numbers. We got in groups. He was in my group. I studied him and liked what I saw, but even then I didn't feel the attraction. Strange.
It was just him, my sister, and I at first before all the other youth came in. We were just lounging in his bedroom, just talking like old times. It was all so familiar to us and it came naturally. It was like a relapse of our friendship. After while everyone started coming in and it was time to eat. After we finished eating CJ and I decided to go in his room and talk. CJ and I sat on his soft, comfortable bed. His cousin accompanied us to talk. I was as confused as a deer in headlights to what was going on. His cousin then asked me “ Do you like CJ?” and I looked at CJ confused and realized he wanted to know too. I said “Yeah, I like him” and she asked me “ Do you want to go with him?” and I looked at her and him, back and forth. She seemed to be very brusque. I just said “Sure”. CJ asked “Sure?” then I changed my answer and said yes. After we exchanged contact information he was required to depart to work.
Being the fearless 16 year old I was back then, I texted him how I felt and tried to see if he felt the same or not. After sending that text I was hit with the dreaded “we need to talk” text. The next day we meet up, I stumbled into his massive, black lifted truck and we drove around for a good thirty minutes in silence until he pulled over his truck. When he pulled over, he parked by this four-feet tall concrete bridge, he got out of the truck and had me slide over from the passanger side to the driver's seat. He stood right in front of his door and began to talk.His palms were sweating and his voice was a little shaky. He told me that he had feelings for me and had felt the same way I did for quite a while but didn’t want to mess up our friendship. After hearing him say those words I felt like the luckiest girl on the planet and I sure was the happiest, I couldn’t stop blushing and was just filled with joy. That year we started as friends and eventually grew to love each other. After that first day at the bridge, anytime something happened in his or my life, whether it was good or bad, magnificent or devastating, we met at the bridge to talk about it. That was our spot. Seems a little silly, kind of a textbook teenage story, but it’s
Today was the day. I was feeling so confident. So I grabbed my brush and started screaming Taylor Swift's “Bad Blood!” I was at her concert! I wa on stage and jamming along with her! “Ouch! Mason stop!” My two year old brother was poking me so hard! “Wake up, wake up, everybody wake up!” he was screaming down the hallway. Tonight was the night of the football game. I was sure he was going to ask me out. “But whatever, boys have cooties” I thought to myself. Today is gonna be great! I was walking around school with swag and he looked at me! I had a wonderful time at the game and he actually asks
I came out in my dress and Stratton said “ Damn Darrian you look beautiful”. I couldn’t help but blush and get a big smile on my face. When he said that, I realized that no one has ever looked at me the way he did. After we left, we decided to go eat at Hometown Buffet. I’m not the type of girl to eat in front of guys for some reason but with him it was different. I could be myself around him and I loved
We had slowed down inside so I stuck around for a bit, engaging in some very flirtatious conversation, not long after I returned behind the bar, my boyfriend takes a seat at the end to visit with me since I worked a lot. We arrived home after the bar closed down, Cody handed me my phone, it was a message on facebook from the guy earlier that evening, he said “It was great to finally meet you in person, I hope that
It's only been two day's since I chose to live at Sam's for a week. It's really not so bad. I have lot's of food. I have watched enough t.v. to last me a year though. Honistly I so bored. I'm here all alone. Though I thought this would be fun. Now though not so much. I have my reason's and at the time I thought they were good. Now that I am here though I see that I need more just over sized stuff, food, and space. Who needs this much space when your all alone?? I'm very grateful that I'll only be here for a week. I've had so much pizza I'm so burnt out. Though it's still a little fun here. I get in shopping carts and roll down the esle's in then. While I was looking around for food I found this really big birthday cake. I don't know who Sally
There’s nothing I look forward to more than my daily sugar fix: I have an undeniable sweet tooth. Whether my teeth are sunken in a slice of ripe, juicy watermelon, or in a bowl of raspberry gelato, I can't get enough of the taste of sugar. I am almost certain that if you close your eyes and eat something sweet, you can taste a little of the hot sun beating on a Brazilian sugarcane plantation, or of the refreshing water running through the plants.
During Spring 2013, I received a C- in Organic Chemistry 2. During that semester, I took an 18 credit course load, began a 20 hour per week research position, and spent 6-8 hours per week as the Conference Chair of the Asian American Student Union. In addition, I had two separate oral surgeries within a three-month period. I had truly lost a healthy balance between school, extracurricular, and my personal life. Although receiving the C- did not significantly impact my GPA, it did significantly impact my self-confidence and I began to doubt my own abilities as a student. This was the first time in my life that I had “failed” at school. This experience taught me two important lessons. First, I learned how to forgive myself for my failings. I
When I met my Biology lab partner in college, I thought I met the guy of my dreams. He was handsome, nice, and very smart. I immediately thought about saying yes if ever asked me to go on a date with him. I just thought that this the right person for me. I will go out with him and willing to have the most romantic dates ever. One day he asked me if I want to go on a study group with him for an upcoming exam. I said yes right away without thinking twice. From study group, to study sessions that
At the end of the last academic year, while writing in my year book, you told me how I improved tremendously throughout the year and how I worked extremely hard to cover up the work that I didn't cover in my previous school. That conversion embodied our professional relationship, as you had always tried to push me beyond my boundaries and allowed me to excel in the subject that is very close to me. My grandfather is a professor of Organic chemistry and has been teaching this subject for 50 years. Since a child, I was fascinated by the physical world and the chemistry behind it. Chemistry was my favorite subject and I thought I knew quite a lot about it. When I first joined your class, however, I thought that maybe chemistry was not for me,
Excited knowing that Ross’s -my older cousins- kids were also going to be attending this camp. had no idea the effect this person would have on me. I had only talked to this boy a few times before. This boy would soon come up in many conversations that I had with Gina! He was shy, but was a major flirt, and I asked Gina advice on flirting, and well asked her opinion on things that happened. One day, after camp my Mom and I went to Gina’s house, she took me in her room sat me on her bed, and proceeded to ask me about the so called “boy on the bus” I told her what had happened that day and how he had kind of asked me out. I needed advice and even though I am close with my Mom, I wanted to also talk to Gina because she is such an important figure in my
I currently do not have any withdraws or repeated courses. I earned a B in Chemistry 108. Chemistry 108 is for nursing professionals. In high school I took chemistry sophomore year. Starting college I did not have a good background and it took me a little to catch on to what we were doing. However, now in my second quarter I am in Chemistry 103 and have shown significant improvement. I also wanted to mention Sociology 101. I am taking this class online which has proved to be something that I struggled with at first. I currently have not received my final grade for this course, but I expect it to be either a B or a B+. I wanted to address in case it ends up being a B. I considering withdrawing from this course when I realized that taking it
Before we went to the movie, I decided to call a few friends. I thought that some of my friends might be interested in seeing Avatar, but I was not sure how many would be free. I called my friend John he said that he had to work. Then I called Paul, who said that he would meet us there. When I called Rob, he said that he had already seen it. Finally, I called my best friend Steve, he said he would like to come. We dropped by Steve’s house, but he was not quite ready. We waited for a while I got nervous that we might be late for the movie. After a few minutes, he was ready to go, and we left for the theater. We got to the theater just in time the previews were just starting. The theater was packed, there were only a few seats left. Sitting down
When I interact with someone or the environment I am using the science of biology. The meat I eat was likely given GMO food and that is biology at work to try and feed the world. When ever I look at a banana I remember that it’s basically a man made plant and through the science of biology we were able to create it. Lastly medicine, with out biology I might have died for the onslaught of illnesses that I contracted as a baby. In the future I know medicine will advance and get better but biology’s biggest obstacle will be dealing with a second Spanish Flu and food in stores will be modified to be better and I might one day eat lab grown meat.
