I want you to know what I want, instead of you asking me every single time.  I don’t know what I am saying because I am pretty tired, but I know my life is out of focus. I need to live life in macro, where with just the adjustment of my camera setting the “big picture” is clearer. Sometimes I think you expect way to much out of me.

Just trust me. That is all I am asking from you.

P.S. My internet is failing. Why did the people from upstairs have to move?

So since Halloween has fallen on a Saturday our school, and probably every other school, has decided to let us wear costumes today. The feeling of dressing up for Halloween has seemed to lose its appeal, for me anyway. I can’t help thinking that it is because I am getting older and more boring. I don’t know what it is, but the thought of Halloween being a holiday is strange to me. We don’t really give out gifts, besides candy, and what are we celebrating.

-Does research-

Oh..I don’t feel like explaining what I just learned. One because I barely read it. Two because you can do your own research. What I did find interesting was that on Halloween it is supposed to be the day where the line between this world and the “world of the dead” become thin. AWESOME! I love the thought of spirits.

I might be very inclined to see scary things, but I need my friends by my side to gain some confidence. I know that if I was alone and in a cemetery, well let’s just say I would never be alone in a cemetery.

Mission to get some accessories for Halloween costumes.

Mission failed. (Well for me anyway.)

My friends are kleptos.

Prince Michael is not pleased and would like for Bryan and Jeremy to refrain from calling him Prince Michael.

It was a beautiful gloomy autumn day. “How can that be?”, you may be asking yourself. Well, the truth is I love the autumn weather and I go crazy for the damp air. The fog began to roll in after I left school and I just knew that the weather was perfect. I walked up the hill, I didn’t even mind the frequent stops Jeremy made to take some pictures of what he thought would be amazing shots. I simply continued to walk further, but not to far, ahead. I looked around me and I noticed that the leaves were falling from a nearby tree. And no, not the small stumpy trees that are all around Belleville, but a kind of  large prestigious tree. A few leaves began to fall from it and when the leaves stopped I realized I missed a perfect opportunity to capture autumn in motion. Just then another leaf fell, as if to try to get me to redeem the failure that I had just undergone, from missing the beauty of autumn, but yet again I had missed the leaf,  I failed. But when I looked at the camera I realized I did not fail, but rather I captured the stillness of autumn’s beauty.

Jeremy ran up behind me and we continued to walk along the path of a typical autumn day.

For all of you who don’t know I love horror anything scary, something to get my heart racing. Well State Fair had a “Haunted Factory” set up and it was suppose to be “pee in your pants” scary, according to the men who gave us the discount tickets. I was so hyped and ready for me to wet myself my heart wasn’t racing because of fear, but rather for excitement.

“How many people do you have in your group?” the stumpy zombie man stated.

“There are eight of us.” one of us answered.

“Okay, but there is a rule. Girls have to go in a different entrance.” he smiled.

Haha! We went in and the girls screamed within the first five seconds and came running towards us. Going through this maze of horror with eight people was definitely an arduous task. We would all be screaming, excluding the people in the front, and bashing into each other. I swear, Jeremy and Maria bumped into me and I fell onto a random chair. I have the bruise to prove it. The people were all up in your face and if you looked really close they didn’t even look that scary. Some of the people I kind of wanted to have a nice chat with. Haha..maybe not, but I think you see what I am saying. When we finally got out the girls were already at the van and the guys seemed a little disappointed in the “lack of horror.” On a scale of 1 to 10, I gave you “Haunted Factory” a 3.

Sorry to disturb your “work” Jeremy, but I forgot that you were having a “me” day. My bad.

Sean, Lawrence, Jeremy, and I seem to be hanging out a lot more lately. Strange group.

We kind of disturbed Jeremy’s college apps, but like he said he didn’t really get anything done at all and he was home all day working on it. So then we watched a horror movie, “Quarantine.”

Maybe instead of going out I should be studying.

How can you love someone you never knew existed? October 25, 2009 Sunday

Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, better known as Connie Francis came to our school to be recognized as a having a successful life. She graduated so long ago,way before I was born and even a little bit before my grandmother. She was a singer of songs such as “Where the Boys Are?”, “Stupid Cupid”,”Lipstick on your Collar”, and other song. She went to Belleville High School, but not that Belleville High I attended and graduated the year of 1955. You see the Belleville Middle School now was actually the Belleville High School back in her year. I didn’t even know Belleville existed back then. Haha. Just kidding.

Well in honor of her achievements Belleville High School decided to spend thousands of dollars to name our auditorium after her. There was a wall put up in front of the brickwalls with pictures and what seemed to be new doors. From what I hear around the school the whole thing is going to be taken down in about 6 months.

It is so annoying because 90% of the students in our school didn’t even know who Connie Francis was, including me. I guess we were simply proud that a graduate of Belleville High made something of their life, even though our town contributed nothing to that of her success.

She was making her speech and although she was old, Connie still had a bubbly and humorous personality.  For being so old I was impressed at how much life she had in her. She told us stories of her times in Belleville High and showed us how things have changed and how some things remained the same. Every so often she would throw in a little joke and the crowd would laugh at imagery of her stories. Connie then began to tell us how her career all began and what other things she had in mind for her life. Can you believe that she was going to be an accordion player? Haha.

But other than that I cared nothing for this showy presentation our school had set up. This presentation was all just a publicity stunt, “trying” to get Belleville noticed. But I guess it doesn’t really matter because this presentation has showed many students that there is a possibility of making something out of yourself after Belleville High.

There were some people from her time that came just to see a star of their decade. It was so strange to see people so eager to meet such an old celebrity. Not old in age, but old by the fact that she was famous so long ago. I mean to think that her fame will always still be alive in the people who knew her is kind of mind-blowing. Maybe when I am eighty, Taylor Swift will be someone whose autograph I would be in line waiting for.

Can I come home? October 25, 2009 Sunday

Homecoming. I think it is called that so that Alumni can come back to their highschool and see how things have changed. Psh..tell that to our year. This homecoming was different from any of the other previous homecomings, due to the digging in the football field. This time we had a “carnival” type of homecoming or a down grade of a carnival. Hahaha. I am not complaining about homecoming at all because I actually had a lot of fun.

Results of homecoming came at 8 o’clock and surprised everyone. I mean the candidates that I voted for didn’t win. Whoops. I forgot to say who was running. Jann, Dana, and Andrea for the girls. Greg, Anthony, and Matt for the guys. I honestly thought Jann and Greg had their crowns in the bag, but I guess that Belleville High has many surprises up its sleeves because Matt the least likely to win got homecoming king and Dana queen.

Anyway after the results I walked around and hung out with a bunch of people that I wasn’t well acquainted with. They were all sophomores and for some reason I was just really hyper and went crazy. For some strange reason I felt really comfortable with them, that I kind of forgot about my own friends. When I got back to Jeremy and asked him were the others went, he told me that they left awhile ago.

O.O…sorry!!!

Uhmm..well I proceeded to take advantage of what was left of homecoming and I got my fortune told. Haha! I was so excited to get it, but when I sat down I wanted to leave. Talk about a short intension span. Well my fortune was pretty good. The lady told me to think about a question and then shuffle the cards. The top three cards would be my past, present, and future.

Past: In the past there was someone who leaned on me a lot and I leaned on them too. They helped me through a lot when I was younger and shaped me into the person I am now.

Present: I have to make a decision and I have to make it soon. The decision I make will be the right decision no matter how hard it is to make.

Future: I will meet someone who will be so kind to me and that person will love me and take care of me.

Okay so I don’t say I believe in all that tarot card mumbo jumbo, but hey it was all for the fun of it and I got a pretty nice fortune. It made me feel optimistic for the future.

Jesus..I am going to have a hard time titling this freaking post. Excuse the title if it makes absolutely no sense.
