So much to say:

NP- I'm Ready
by Jacks Mannequin

So much has happened within the last week alone...

I don't know if I can recap it all, but high school is definitely intersting. Academically, it sucks, but socially, its fun. Other then a few major problems I've been having with Meg, which has definitely been a mess, thinks are ok...

I really can't recap them now, I wish I could, but my brain is broken and I need some major sleep. More later:

We stood like statues...

NP-Santa Monica
by Theory of a Deadman

Friday was a huge day...

Went to High School Orientation and found Meg there. It was amazing to be able to see her again after two weeks (well, not quite two weeks). So we just talked through the whole presentation or whatever it was that they were putting on. Afterwards, we attempted to find our classes (more like, my mom attempted to find my classes while I was socializing. I still don't know where any of my classes are). After wandering the school for a good half hour or so, we took Meg home. Got out of the car and I just held her, it was one of those moments where you don't want to let go no matter what, even though you have to... Kissed her goodbye and took off to the UPS Store.

Don't know if I've told this story, but while shipping my amp UPS kinda broke it. Since it was insured, I will receive $556. Sweet, part of that money will go towards the owner of the amp so he can fix it but the rest is mine. So I'll come out at least 300 bucks on top.

But, while I was on my way home, I get a phone call from Meg saying that she'd just gotten in a huge fight with her mom... She apparently was at Karlee's house and calling me from there. We talked for a good two hours or so before Kar had to go to work and Meg had to find somewhere else to stay because she didn't want to go home. She told me she was just going to follow her feet, take a walk and figure out what to do and stuff.

Then I unexpectedly find her at the door to my room :).

Even though I know it probably wasn't good news for her that she'd left her house over a fight with her mom and came here, I couldn't help thinking that that was the cutest thing in the world that she showed up at my house. We went out back and talked for a few minutes before heading for the Jr. High to say 'hey' to Mr. Wright. We visited for about a half an hour and then Meg and I walked to a park behind the Jr. High (that Cole, Dave, and I used to sneak out for lunch every day) and just talked for a while. After finally coming to the realization that she'd have to go back home before everyone started looking for her, we both stood up. That was another hard thing, for both her and I to do, stand up and leave. Hard for me because I knew I was taking her back to face the inevitable, and hard for her because she had to face it... We stood like statues for what seemed like forever before finally heading back towards her house. We talked about a bit while we headed back to her place, and then after finally reaching the corner of her house, I had to let her go.

I haven't heard from her since...

Later that evening, Kimball and I shot pool, I don't recall a lot after that other then me being kind of down...

Saturday I worked. A lot. Mowed all the lawns and then refinished the kitchen. Afterwards, I helped Kimball replace his fuel filter so his car would run and we could actually get from point A to point B. Fixed it after about two hours and then after a bunch of complications, many phone calls to me asking 'why I wasn't at the dance yet', and Kimball's quick shower, Shawn, Skilar, Kimball, Cole, and I headed to the dance.

Met up with everyone there. The whole night was a tad bit complicated (not on my end) and so the majority of the time Kar, Mollie, Cole, and I hung out. We decided that the dance inside wasn't as fun as outside, so we turned up Kimball's car stereo and danced to that instead. Retarded? Cliche? Who cares, it was fun.

Mollie had to leave after the dance ended unfortunately, but Kar and everyone else loaded up and we headed to Jack and Jills. Stayed for a little while and had an absolute blast, and then we headed to take everyone home.

That evening was a great way to end the summer, the best possible way without Meg being there...

*sigh* Thank heavens that I get to see her tomorrow.

First day of high school, I'm stoked to be able to go to school with all my friends and see them every single day. Cept my friends at the Jr. High, whom I unfortunately don't get to see every day... Not looking forward to the academic part of school though *bleh*. We'll see how it turns out.

Alright, I've gotta hit the sack a little early tonight in hopes of sleeping and waking up at that forsaken hour of 6:30 in the morning...yuck.

California In The Summer, And My Hair Is Growing Long

NP- The Taste Of Ink
by The Used

Another one of those overwhelming weeks... holy cow.

A week from yesterday, Meg and I met each other at the high school and because we did when she wasn't supposed to, she ended up grounded for two weeks...


yeah, I screwed that one up.

Kimball and I headed to Del Taco to grab lunch and try to figure everything out, without success. Both of us tend to not think things through entirely before executing our plans. Afterwards, we ran to Chelseys house and talked to her for quite a while. It was great to see Chelsey again, she was telling us some stuff from youth conference and she seemed like a totally different person. She's just cool.

We headed to a park after Chelsey's so I could start writing my letter to meg, which was my apology and only real way for me to contact her. Kimball came to mutual with me and I had my bishop interview for youth conference. Afterwards, we went back to his place and played guitar for a little while and stuff, tryed to figure things out and figure out anything we could to help Meg.

The next day, I finished my letter to her and bought her Leaving Through The Window, wrapped it all up in a box with a flower inside and dropped it off on her doorstop around eleven at night.

The next day, I got a letter back from her that was extremely cute and made me feel a whole lot better... I swear I've read that letter a million times already...

Took off for Youth Conference that day, which consisted of Jared and I hanging around Temple Square all day long then going out to dinner. Maddison was there (spelling) and she's really cool, so it was nice to have someone there to talk to and stuff. Came home afterwards and headed out to California.

California, long trip up and we drove straight through the night. Got there the next day.

Arrived in Long Beach, it was overcast and the beach kinda sucked... so we hung out in the hotel for the majority of the time.

Sunday, Kelly came with Jordan and the other kids and we went out to attempt to go to this aquarium thing, but everyone and their dogs were there in a humongous line, so we decided to go out to dinner and then head to Huntington Beach... good call.

Huntington Beach was really nice, but it was around five PM when we finally got there and it was overcast yet again... waves were great, but it was a little too windy and kinda cold...

The rest of the days were disneyland days. By the end of each day, I was totally wasted from walking around all day, but it was fun so who cares :).

Made it home in one piece and then that evening, Kimball, Skilar, and I went and met Trish, Renee, and Mikelle at Sonic. We basically just goofed off for an hour and then took Renee home. Mikelle was still working, so Trish, Kimball, Skilar, and I went to my place and just talked for a while.

So, that should cover a bit of ground right there... *deep breath*

Emotions and Rollercoasters

NP-Walking in Memphis
by Lonestar

This whole week... holy crap.

Sunday was one of the worst days ever... I swear there were too many times in that day that seemed like I just wanted to stop living... a giant emotional rollercoaster where I almost lost the person more important to me then anything... thank you, to both Trisha and Kimball for helping me through this one. Trisha, thanks for dropping everything and coming over, it made me feel a whole lot better, think a little more clear. You're an awesome friend. Events of Sunday I really don't want to have to relive, so I'm not going to even try... just know that they worked out, I don't know quite how, cause I was almost certain it was over, but we made it through stronger...

Monday was a little shaky, I absolutely had to see Meghan though, so I went over and caught her for a little over a minute before she left for work, that was a nice confirmation and made me feel a little bit better. It wasn't till later that evening that I felt alright again, I wanted to somehow see her and just be able to talk to her and know, for a fact, that everything was alright. I guess I somehow received that 'confirmation' if you will, and I just felt a whole lot better after Monday was over.

Tuesday I don't recall too much of what happened... I hung out with Kimball and we went to Sonic to grab some food and really started talking about things, it was awesome to be able to just talk to him and stuff, we both had some fun.

Wednesday was my little brothers birthday, so I just kinda hung around all day long, Kimball stopped by and we just kinda hung around for a while and stuff. Kara stopped by and to be sincere, was quite pissy... Kimball and I went to dinner with the rest of the family, then came home and talked to Meg. We finally decided that Kimball had to meet Meg, so we ended up at Megs for a little over a half hour just talking in her living room and stuff, which was really cool. Then we ran home from Megs and stopped by Kara's because we told her that we'd call her after dinner. Spent three minutes over there talking infront of her house, then continued running home. Made a three mile run in twenty five minutes, so we were pretty happy for ourselves :).

Thursday I was in Salt Lake all freakin day long, just school shopping and stuff. After I got home, Kimball and I loaded up my head and took it over to his place and hooked it up to his brother's Mesa cab. Played through it for a very short time before Kara and Jessie came over. Talked to Jessie for a while, which was cool to be able to do again. Kara was still being upset, which I can understand, but it still wasn't too fun. She's really got to try to let go...

Friday, Cole came over and then Meg and Mollie stopped by to say 'hey'. So I got to see her for a little while, which was awesome :)

Hung around for the rest of the evening talking to Meg and Mollie on the phone. Then Trish, Mikelle and Renee stopped by, it was really great to see them again, I hadn't seen Trish in almost a week, and hadn't seen Mikelle and Renee for at least a month. But we just goofed off outside and had fun for a little while.

Today I finally got my cell phone running, which it's about freaking time... stupid Verizon...

Anyways, mowed lawns, a lot of lawns, then went to Megs with Cole. We plugged in a movie, but in the end just talked and goofed off the whole time. Meg was pretty hyper today which was really cute :). Went to the airport to pick up my dad afterwards and then Kimball was at my house when I was home, so we talked for a while about stuff and Meg and Jen swung by, which was really cool :).

Wow, tiredness hit...
