I WAS LISTENING TO DON’T RAIN ON MY PARADE AND WHEN IT SAID ‘BAM’ FIREWORKS WENT OFF SOMEWHERE NEARBY AND IT WAS FUCKING AMAZING
I made a new best friend today because I met someone my age that knew who Michael J. Fox was and knew what Family Ties was
Today in Math class I finished my test so my teacher told me I could listen to music and got to sleep and she would wake me up when class ended, and I ended up putting my head down and finished watching Back to the Future (which I started yesterday) on my iPod. And then I did the exact same thing the next period for English class.
This one time in the seventh grade I wrote my friend an eight page story about the two of us falling into the second Harry Potter book. This eight page story turned into a 300 page, handwritten story by her, me and our two other friends about the four of us in the Chamber of Secrets. It took us nearly six months to write and even inspired an unfinished sequel. And that is the story of how I actually finished writing something that was longer than a one-shot.
so today in class I started doing quizzes on JetPunk and this grade twelve who was in my class started helping me with naming the artists of 80s songs. Fastforward to twenty minutes later, and I’m surrounded by seven more guys (including my teacher) trying to figure out who was in Forrest Gump, Mrs. Doubtfire and Norma Rae.
when I was little my dad used to sing me to sleep with The Gambler by Kenny Chesney because it was the only slow/quiet song he knew all the words too, and for the longest time I thought the line ‘If you’re gonna play the game, boy’ was ‘If you’re gonna play the Gameboy’ and I could never understand what knowing when to hold em and knowing when to fold em had to do with playing a Gameboy.
so last night I learned how to properly pronounce Joaquin Phoneix’s name, and now I totally forget
so today on the announcements they played How About You by Frank Sinatra and, as the song started, I looked around at the class and told everyone that the song was my jam. They all laughed, thinking I was so hilarious, until I actually started singing along and they realized that I knew all the words. Then I wasn’t funny, I was just odd.
so today my dad suggested we watch Groundhog Day and I was all for it because I’ve never seen it before and it sounds good and everything, and it wasn’t until twenty minutes or so into the movie that I realized why my dad had chosen that particular movie….
