Backhand. Forehand. Step-up. Racket back. Follow through. Wrists tight. Tennis. Tennis. Tennis. As seen in other posts, I have been at the “glamorous” courts of Belleville, from afternoon to around late night practicing tennis. Although I do not have a racket myself, I manage to get one, someway and somehow.

Exhausting can only begin to describe my day. A regular court usually can fit four people per court, but our court can fit about eight. Haha. It started out with four: Olga, Fetus, Roland, and me. As the day went on more and more friends began to show their faces. For some reason I always start playing really badly and then near the end of the day my skills begin to increase, as little as that increase may be.

Oh okay, well after tennis I “ventured” to Marie’s (shown above) house. I have been pestering her all summer about how we have not seen much of each other and how we should hang out more often. Talking her today made me realize that every group has their own, no matter how small they may be, problems. We discussed how there were things that bothered us about people and how we try to be a “nice” person. It was nice to talk to her after not seeing much of her all summer. This catch up is something that I think I needed. Most definitely. :D

P.S. I hate this picture.

“Let’s watch a movie today,” she texted me.

Okay so the movie was called The Final Destination and I invited everyone who I thought would like to come along. Easy right? Wrong! So here is what you need to know when you ask someone if they want to go too a movie. You have to know the time you are going to the theatre, for starters. Next, you need to know who is going. I think that this is funny because you don’t know who is going to go unless everyone is confirmed. And since no one responds fast enough you don’t know who will be going.

Okay so I find out who is going and am fairly satisfied with the attendees, except for the fact that they are all girls.
We got to the movies with no intention of spending money and felt the thrill of stealhly getting in. Oh yea, The Final Destination was in 3D. Where do we get the glasses? Score! There was a glasses recycly bin, in which we took a pair of the glasses shown above.

A bit of advice, front row and 3D do not mix.

Oh and the helium balloons at Red Robin make for tons of high-pitched fun! :D

The apology of someone who has falsely accused isn’t as sweet as you would imagine.

You can never take back the words you said to me today, but I know that I can always try to forget. Bah! I cannot wait to live on my own and it is all thanks to the people I call my parents. Thank you, for driving me away. :D

Anyway, I wanna a YouTube pillow. Preferably the one NDTitanLady made in her video.

P.S. True friends are hard to come by, but I know that real friends are somewhere.

Let’s put a twist on today’s post.

The Perspective of a Tennis Ball

I hate being smacked around by the racket all day and I don’t appreciate not having any control over the direction of my life. I get smacked and lobed all around the courts almost every single day. The one’s who possess the power to hit me are the tennis players, which are mostly Asian, who take almost every oppurtunity to hit me with their rackets. But I am so sick of just getting “hit” around. Why doesn’t anyone ask me what I want to do or where I want to go? Why don’t I get invited to parties to get thrown around on a regular basis? I just feel under-appreciated these days. There are days when I get switched into different bags or forgotten all together. I don’t usually last very long and when I get hairy, wet, or overused I often get thrown out. I just want to tell anyone out there who plays tennis that take time to appreciate that you have me to rally back and forth, don’t throw me out or forget about me. I am your neon greenish yellow friend and I just can’t wait until the winter when I can rest.

Alright that was a little bit nerdy. You all can give a look of weirded out. -waits-

So yea I played tennis today and learned a couple of new tricks. I may not be the best at tennis, but I am on my way to learning something that I am not used to. I have great teachers to help me understand the “INs” and “OUTs” of tennis. Oh yeah! I have to bend more and lean in to the ball.

He told me to be optimistic about this school year because anything can happen.

Optimism, it’s the only thing that is keeping me from giving up on everything I believe in.

So how did I end up at Johnny’s house, you readers might be asking. Well you might not be asking yourselves this, because you didn’t even know I was there, but just roll with me. I was at Johnny’s house. Okay I ended up there after a failed attempt at trying to play tennis with Olga. Uh. Let’s see. Oh yes! I was walking around Belleville avoiding, at all costs, my own house. Out in the sweltering heat, I texted Nammy to see if she was home and to my disappointment she was not. “Come to Johnny’s house!”, she said.

He has done what I have always said that I wanted to do after high school; leave my parent’s. He has his own responsibility and had to look out for himself. His apartment isn’t really all set up, but by the looks of it in two weeks top he will be settled in. I secretly look up to how responsible he has become in the short time after his graduation.

Uhh! Watching television has never been so funny. Thanks Johnny.

When you rely on the flip of a coin to make your decisions you may not like the outcome.

I learned that today when hanging out with Marison and John V.

Activities left, right, up, and down. It has been such a tiring day, tiring in the good way. I had woken up with hopes of playing tennis with good weather, but what I got was strange weather. In the middle of playing tennis a dark and mysterious cloud appeared and I thought the rain would pour. At first it didn’t rain, but then all of a sudden half of the court was getting rained on, while the other half was sort of sunny. Cool and strange.

After tennis, I went to play baseball. Since Jamie has sort of a big mouth, I learned that in addition to baseball we would be having a water balloon fight.We got there and played some baseball and tennis, which added on to the tiredness.

The water fight begins!

Balloons were being flung at each other at speeds just so they would burst. I swear I am Wolverine because mostly every balloon I threw would burst before I threw it. There were those “party poopers” who did not want to get wet because they had their phones on them. Lame excuses! By the end we were all soaked in the light of the moon. Exhausted? I think not! Where do we go next?

Montclair. At one point, while I sat in the back of Bryan’s Jetta we listened to the song Ocean Avenue and we were mostly in sync, I stuck my head out the window and thought to myself; “I am happy!”

P.S. Tram looks scary in this picture. Yikes!

I rubbed the yellow frog’s back over and over again, wishing for you mouth to close. And guess what? It finally did.

P.S. Going to Burger King with Bryan and Ana was completely worth the $6 I spent. Oh and super smash brother, we have to play.

Tram made the best header for my blog. Thank you so much! :D
