i suck at updating lately. i'm so sorry.

here's a crappy update of what's been going on:

wednesday was the first day of water wars at next valley, the place that i go to youth group. on wednesday for the next 5 weeks (not including this past wednesday) there will be different activities we have to do, most of them obviously involving water, haha. i'm pretty excited. here's the video doug showed before it all began for the ones who weren't there last year:

yesterday was warped tour. it was fucking amazing. first off, we got in and brooklynn and i went to look at the times for each band. then we went to the hurley stage, where the maine was about to play. we were about 5 feet away from the front. brooklynn was behind me and put her head on my shoulder, and i looked back and she said 'i don't feel good at all.' and i was like, 'do you wanna get out of here?' ..no response. 'brooklynn, DO YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF HERE?' she had shades on so i couldn't tell if her eyes were open or closed, but she started falling to the side. i got her back upright and said for a third time, 'BROOKLYNN DO YOU WANNA GET OUT OF HERE' and she did the same thing. the guards up front picked us up over the rail after everyone around us was yelling for them to help and we walked over to the medics' tent. we decided that she was just dehydrated, so we walked to get her some food and water, and missed the maine ): but she was fine for the rest of the day.

and here's how the rest of the day went: we met up with rachel and mike, walked around for a while. saw lights, then went to her tent and met her. she was adorable. i met chris from sing it loud. then we had to decide whether we were going to see versaemerge, which was very important to brooklynn, or get in line early to meet a day to remember, which was important to me. we decided to split up, and it worked out well. i met john from the maine. she caught the guitarist's pick and got their autographs, and adtr signed my ipod. i bought 3 shirts. she won one at the truth van. there was a secret 'special guest' and no one knew who it was... it was PARAMORE. we saw one of the guy's from the band that played at safehouse camp and we talked to him for a bit. then we walked back to the hurley stage and saw the last of saosin and then saw a day to remember, who put on a fucking amazing show. one of the best i've seen. then we left, got a flat tire 20 miles out of cleveland. 45 minutes of standing on the side of the highway and a guy with a license plate that said 'dan d man' on it stopped and saved the day! i have the sunburn from hell, but it was all worth it. i'll post pictures in a different post.

sunday, i'm leaving for tennesse to visit my mom's side of the family. by myself. i'm flying down there, by myself. my dad would not like it if my mom went with me (that's another horrible story) and god forbid that i bring a friend down with me. my little sister gets invited to flordia with her friend last year, goes to myrtle beach for a MONTH (she's currently down there) with her friend and her friend's family and what do i get? i get to go down to tennesse, by myself, for 9 days. don't get me wrong, i love it down there and i love my mom's side of the family and seeing them, but i'd really just have more fun if i had someone with me. i'm still excited and all, but it's just not fair. i'm 16, it's not like we'll need babysat. and my cousins used to bring friends up here when they were younger (they're 22-25ish i think now). blahh, oh well. i'm glad to get away.

camp was great, i didn't think about home one time. i met some really great people and cried almost every night at service, haha. it was intense and a lot of it really got to me. i wish that i could have faith, i just can't get my head wrapped around it.

1. i miss you, you asshole. i miss your random calls 11 pm and love how you would be playing video games EVERY SINGLE time you called me. i sincerely wish that i hadn't taken you for granted before you moved.

2. you are honestly my favorite person ever. i get so excited when i know i'm going to see you, and i envy your girlfriend for having someone as awesome as you.

3. you're the only person that i really think can see right through me. i think that you know when something is wrong, even though i (unintentionally) never show it. thank you for being so patient with me.

4. we have soo many memories, i know we'll never be able to remember or name all of them. i think that you're the only one i'm almost 100% myself around.

5. we just got close this year, and i'm so happy about it. we're so retarded when we're around each other for some reason, but it's hilarious. i feel like i can tell you anything.
