Get yourself a snack, cuz this is gonna be a long one.
So I got to the airport, a modest 2 hours early (4:45am). Got my boarding pass, got through security, and sat on my ass by the terminal. Some crazy Indian family nearly missed their flight, it was rediculous. Then my plane boarded. I got on the plane, seats were 2x2. This was my first time flying and I have to say it was quite fun! We took off on time, and I had a lovely window seat. Watched the lights from the sky, above the clouds. We landed in Memphis. I got my luggage, got to my next terminal and waited for about 35 minutes or so. Boarded the plane, this was 3x3. Some scene chick, with her boyfriend, stole my window seat. So I said whatevs, and just sat by the isle. I also discovered that I cannot sleep on airplanes. I listened to some tunes, taking care not to drain the battery, for I needed it for the car ride to Des Moines. We had some slight turbulence, and that was fun. We landed, in Minneapolis, got our luggage, and I started on an EPIC walk. From where I landed to where my next flight was, I walked full speed for 15 solid minutes. I made it on time though! Now we boarded to head to Waterloo. We got on our tiny plane, 2x1. Then, the computer for weight balance fucked up, so I sat on the plane for almost an hour while they did it manually. Then we took off and it only took us 30 mins to get to Waterloo. I finally got off, met up with Haley, and got my luggage. We left, went to my house, I dropped off my bag, and we headed to Walmart. We got there, DIDN’T BUY ANYTHING, due to it being expensive, and left. Thus began the drive to Des Moines. Luckily, we found a tape adapter in the vehicle so we could listen to my Ipod. We listened to Owl City the whole way there. Parked in a parking garage, peed in some resturaunt, and got in line. After waiting FOREVER in line, they finally let people in. We went in, Haley baught a shirt, and I got a free sticker. We got as close to the front as we could. The opening act was some chick with a keyboard. She was pretty good. Then The Scene Asthetic played, and they were not that great! Finally it was time for Owl City! I was surprided I remembered all the lyrics. They were quite impressive live! After that, we started our trek home. I had not eaten since 2am, so I was very hungry. But I decided to tough it out because I wanted to get back. The drive back made me realize quite a few things, but that is best saved for another time. We got back to Cedar Falls and ate at Wendys. Haley braught me home after that. This was the last time I saw her this weekend. Then I slept in my comfy bed.
I was awoken by Ethan calling me. He walked over after he was done at his school, around noon. We chilled here for a few, walked to his house, and chilled there. His mom came and picked us up soon after, to go pick up his car from Evansdale. He had a brand new radiator put in it, since the old one leaked like crazy. So we took the long way back to his mom’s house. We got there, I made a roast beef sandwich, and we watched TV. Ethan had to go to work, so he braught me home, and I chilled here for a little. Then I went out to eat with my aunt and grandma at Applebees. After this, I went back home, and Spencer and Ethan came over. We left with Spencer and went to The Heart Of Darkness. It wasn’t very scary. after that, Ethan had to go home, so spencer dropped him off, and Spencer and I went to see Shawn. We met up with them, chilled for a little, then Spencer braught me home. Then I slept in my comfy bed.
I woke up at 6:30 due to Fran texting me. Then I went back to sleep till 10. I got dressed, and Fran picked me up. We went back to his house, played some Beatles Rock Band, and then left again. I went to Arby’s with his family for lunch. We then proceeded to go to Radioshack. I have no idea why we went, but we spent at least a half-hour there. Fran and I found unsecured Wi-fi on the laptop and played really loud youtube videos. After we were done bothering the people, we wend back to Fran’s. We chilled for a little and decided to go to the mall. We trolled people at the mall for a good hour. We wrote HAIL SATAN! on tons of entries for drawings, yelled about genitals, and were generally annoying. We soon grew tired of this however, and left. Back to his house, again. Now we started planning the party. Fran had an idea out of nowhere to drive to Ames to pick up our friend. We decided it would be an epic venture, and that was all the incentive we needed. We got there, he showed us his place, and we drove back. I stopped by the house to say hi to the family, and proceeded to go visit another friend. Her and I chilled at her house for a few, while Fran went to buy things for the party. He picked me up and we went back to his house. Then we realized we needed ice. So fran and I went to get ice and 2 other friends. We got back and then the fun started. (What happened here has been omitted to protect the innocent, but lets just say we were less than sober at the end of it.) Everyone was having a good time. We tried to get out with minimal damage to the house, but failed. There was a little damage done, but everything was worked out. I had a great time! Then I slept in my comfy bed.
My flight was scheduled to leave at 6:30am. I figured, since it was a one terminal airport, I didn’t need to be there as early. I tried to check in at 6:05, and I was denied. So we talked it over, and I got re-booked for monday at the same time. So I left, and went back home to sleep. I woke up, ate breakfast, and sat on my ass, waiting for Ethan to come get his stuff for work. He found out, after arriving, that he wasn’t going to work. So I took a shower, we sat around, I got ready, and we left. We went to the gas station, for cigs and gas. Ethan almost did a drive off, by accident. Then we went to Taco Bell and I had lunch. I then found out my flight was cancelled, so I had to take a later one. Then we went to Fran’s; I had to get my phone charger. We chilled for a little there, Ethan pissed off his family, and we left to go back to my house. We chilled there, watched Cops, and played with Hot Wheels. They left, and now I’m here, writing this!
I also haven’t said anything for 3 days. Ah, what can I say… I saw Casey Jones and Evergreen Terrace on Saturday night. Killer show! I met the other 2 neighbors here last night. Still only have $1 in my bank account. Wearing brand new jeans to school today, since the other 2 pairs didn’t get dry. Can’t wait to come back!
Today was a stupendous day! I got up, ate some cereal, and had some orange juice. Went to school, kicked ass on welding, and got a pizza party! We earned it from having the best attendance in the whole school! Got home in record time too. Now I’m gonna get my shower on! Then I’m gonna wear my new Casey Jones shirt that came today! Then, tonight, I’m gonna get my drank on! :D
