March 23, 2004

So... I went on that date with Kara. Me and Ben met up with her, Zoe, and two other peeps from our school at the mall and we saw Starsky and Hutch. It was funny. To tell ya the truth, I kinda only half paid attention. I was too busy thinking about what Kara was doing and whether she was laughing. She sat right beside me and we shared a bag of popcorn.

Go_Leafs_Go wrote me and suggested we grab a bite after the flick, so I suggested we all go for burgers. Well, turns out Kara is a vegetarian. Oops. But before I could feel like a loser, she suggested we go to this burrito place across the street from the mall. Turns out Mexican is her fave food. Anyway, only me, Kara, Ben and Zoe went for food. It was cool cuz it was like a real double date or something. I bought Kara's food, which she thought was super nice of me. (Yeah, it was). Everything was going awesome - she and I had tons to talk about like skateboarding and music (she digs Eminem and Jurassic 5 too). But then, Miguel and his stupid buddies showed up. Just my luck, my annoying, older brother picks the very same restaurant to eat in.

Man, he's a jerk! He came right over and started blabbing about how I'm his little brother and I wet the bed until I was 10 - which I so did not! He told Kara that I learned everything I know about skateboarding from him. He doesn't even own a skateboard. Loser! Luckily we had to go (Zoe and Kara had to be home by 10pm) so he didn't get to say too much. But man, I wanted to deck him.

I walked Kara back to Zoe's where she was sleeping over. We hugged for a long time and it was kinda weird because I think she thought I was going to kiss her, but I played it cool instead. Ben told me to not let her know how much I like her right off cuz she'll get bored. (And Ben's had two girlfriends, so he knows what he's talking about). I am going to call Kara later tonight cuz I haven't really seen her since the date, except in geo class but we couldn't talk.

On the homefront, Miguel won't stop walking around the house laughing and saying stupid things about me being in love with Kara. Mom actually threatened to ground him if he didn't lay off, but she's not much better. She thinks it's "adorable" that I have a "special friend." UGH! Anyway, dad doesn't care about my social life - he's too bent on my school life. He knows I have a science test and he's giving me the whole "pass or you're grounded" speech again, so I better go study. Not all of us are as nerdy as my science fair winning friend, Sindy. LOL - kidding, Sin!

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
