Some weekends are just meant to be

So, my dad's really good friend has a lake house on Lake Gaston and it's pretty amazing. We drove up there on Friday night and I was in a really good mood.
It was one of those weekends where the days are just like routines.We do it every year. But each year is different and the same.
So this weekend, we get up at like 9:30 Saturday and make our way down stairs where Belgian waffles are the first breakfast and my older sister heads to the coffee machine.
We eat Belgian waffles until we drop and we dump whipped cream and strawberries on them.
Then we kinds sit around until someone puts 'boat' and 'tubing' and 'kids' in the same sentence. Then we run upstairs -- metaphorically of course -- and throw on our bathing suits and gym shorts and head down to the dock where we pile on to the speed boat. Well first we must dawn on some sun screen. But this year, this was actually quite funny, we had to clean the boats. Josh poured vinegar in to a bucket of lake water and we scrubbed away the dirt that was on the seats and the parents admired their free labor.
After cleaning the boat, we hook the three person raft up to the end of the speed boat and three kids pile on to the raft. It was choppy and it was really funny hearing my friend scream. After a great morning of tubing, we head inside and then through on some clothes to head to lunch at a place near the marina.
Ok, so I was kinds sad because I really wanted some like legit pasta but I got some like really boring and not actually that great of pasta and it made me really sad.
After lunch, we actually to head to the marina to get gas and, this was funny, we all got Italian ice and so I'm eating mine. All is good and then we actually start the boat and we are speeding away and bumping over waves  -- it's actually really painful when you go over waves in a speedboat at like 30 something mph -- and I give up eating my Italian ice because, what's the point, it's gonna get all over me. So we hit this one wave and the ice - juice - sticky stuff gets all over my hand. I pass my ice to my friend Maggie so I can sort of lick it off my arm and we hit another wave. The ice stuff kinds spills and it gets on the carpet and all over my friend Chris and my friend Sam, who is driving, is cracking up. So Maggie, Chris and I have Italian ice all over our selves and the carpet has red stains on in.
My stomach is starting to hurt because I'm laughing so much. It was really funny!!
OK so we get back and we tub some more and sunbathe. There was some swimming.
We make a fire that night, after a dinner of barbecue (i eat mashed potatoes and lime beans) and my friends and I are just making fun of each other and it's really funny. Meanwhile Josh is getting mad at us for poking the fire and waving around burning sticks.
We head inside and the adults talk and the kids play pool. Maggie and I talk for a while.
The next morning, Sunday, we get up and eat eggs and biscuits. We go tubing and that was really fun. I am happy to say that I didn't fall off this year. I have a record of falling of and it is becoming sort of a habit.
So tubing on Sunday was quite an adventure.
So as I said earlier, there is a three person tube. There is also a tube but it is flat and you lie down and hold on to handles that are next to you. Very fun.
So, we are taking turns in the three person tube and we notice that is's sort of getting a little deflated. We go back in to the dock and pump it back up, thinking that it's ok. Wrong. So 6 kids pile on to the three person tube. (it's actually really fun to have a ton of people on one tube) So i'm sitting in the middle and Sam decides to not actually site in the seat with me -- it was two people a seat -- and he is hanging out of the back of the tube holding on to the handles. The things that he said were really really funny. I will not repeat... So, everyone is bouncing around and falling off the tube and cursing and screaming. It was really funny.
But then Adam, Sam and Chris all fell off and Maggie, Bella and I were all still on the tube!!
We play this game called rodeo and a person is on the tube and they can't touch the fat with their hands. They try to stay on as long as they can.
So, Sam was doing rodeo and he noticed that the raft was really deflated.
We took it apart on the dock.
It has a huge hole. That would be the third raft that we have broken over the years.  It's kinda sad.
So another batch of people head out and they go tubing on the flat raft and that was super fun. I always get rug burn though but...
After a dinner of tacos, we watched Justin Beiber's Never Say Never. I don't really know what to say.
It was kinda sad but really funny at the same time.
I don't love him, I don't hate him.
This morning, we all woke up sore and sunburned. Nothing really happened today. We kinda just sat around. We started packing and I took a ton of pictures. We drove home today and I worked on homework.
It was the kind of weekend that I never wanted to end. I wanted it to stay like that forever.
We will be back again soon, I hope.

I hate being sick because I sit around, watch TV and get some homework done. It get's boring and I normally feel like crap.
But on a good note, I don't have strep throat and my throat doesn't feel lke there is a knife in it.
That's really all I have to say. I'm missing school and I feel like crap I took two vitamine c tables and drank a lot of water. I'm slowing feeling better but not really.
My friend from Switzerland is here. She is really nice and its great to talk to some one in Swiss-German...other than my dad. She lives in Chicago and she is super nice.
It's like a mental health day. But not really. I don't have to hang around all the idiots in my school and pretend that I'm happy because honestly, there are more than one cold shoulder leaning towards me in my class.
It kinda sucks but hell, that's life and I have to deal.

Hunger Games

Finally went to go see the Hunger Games!! F***ing amazing! The energy was amazing and it was just a great movie and I have to say, Liam Hemsworth is pretty adorable and Josh Hutcherson was good...he is cute but I don't know. He is cute.

I saw Juno yesterday and that was really intense movie. I really felt a connection with all of the characters and it was a good movie because there were a lot of emotions showed and I could tell what was really going on. The actors did an amazing job.

Bah!! I really actually kinds hate music theory because it is kinds confusing and there are people in my class who really get it and it makes me feel bad. But I'm glad that some people get what a broken triad is and the diatonic semitone is below e sharp in the bass clef.

I struggle in school. Not going to lie but at least I try and I know that when I do try, I can make something out of my education. It just drives me crazy when a person keeps rubbing it in to your face but it's in a polite way. So, they are being nice like, "Oh, that's easy!" or "Yeah, I ended the year with a 95 in music!" I'm ending with not such a good grade and it's discouraging. I always wanted to do something with music but when I can't anything. I can play the uke but I'm in the lower group. I try so hard but there is no point. I'm not going anywhere and my teachers don't care because in their mind, I'm not good at the uke.

It's like that in dance. I thought I was ok but why am I not going anywhere? Why am I not getting better? I was so good but then. I think it was in January when I was casted as the cow in the school play.
I wasn't good enough to be anything else because I dance. I got to do all my own choreography but I still fell like I didn't get to dance. I could have done the most elaborate dance or the boring routine and my teacher wouldn't have cared because he didn't pay attention to me. That is how important I am in the show. I am the dancing cow and I wasn't challenged at all.

I've learned to deal. I'll be ok. Glad You Came -- The Wanted

I had book club tonight and it was super fun because we all laughed at how much the book kinda sucked. I have read worse but The Fault in Our Stars was interesting because it wasa cancer story but not really.

But my close friend is moving to Virgina because her dad took a job at W n L and they are moving middle of August. They are moving as in they are not coming back. We will see them again but they are moving an never coming back to Chapel Hill. Her older brother and her mom are staying so that he can finish up high school but it's kinds sad, I don't know when I will see them.

But that is really all that is going on right now. I mean, I'm having issue with my parents but that's all old news and my field hockey team is undefeated and I don't know, I feel like something is missing and I'm slowing taking my foot off the pedal and I can't afford to do that. I'm running out of steam, that's what happening. I don't have any more motivation to keep going because I don't have stuff to do for Honduras.

Well folks, there you go. My life in a paragraph.  Got to go shake things ups.

Make Them Feel Welcome

So. Gay marriage.
Gay people are just like straight people because every single human is 99.9 the same,.
So, if gays are not humans, what are they? Aliens because they should get tested because I have never seen an alien before and scientist would have a new discovery.
No, really. What is so bad about gay and lesbians?
I have another question. When did you come out being straight? When did you notice you were straight? What is hard for you to come out and tell all of your friends and family that you are straight?  I'm sure it was really hard. Did you parents never want to hear or see from you again? Are you bullied in school because you are straight? What is being STRAIGHT and GAY different?!?!?!?! Everyone is 99.9 the same.
Amendment one children and tears apart families.
Let me put it this way: 
You husband (or wife, depending on your gender) is in the hospital. S/he is dieing and you can not do a single thing. You can not make your partner live, you can not visit them, you can not even give them a hug them and tell them everything will be ok. You are completely hopeless because you are gay. If you lesbian and pregnant and you and the baby are in danger, you partner can not help you because you are not legally married. So, your wife and your baby are in danger and you might not see them any more.
1.3 million North Carolinian don't care. They voted to say that is it ok for people to die. It sucks because gay people are not safe and 1.3 idiots don't accept them.
Churches say that marriage should be between a man and a women but since when was the BIBLE the CONSTITUTION!! The Constitution is what rules America, not the bible. Oh My God what is wrong with you Christians?!?!
God say's to love your neighbors and you aren't loving everybody.
So, please, accept gay and lesbians, make them feel welcome.
