Katie Cho, my best friend of 11 years and next door neighbor, and I decided to go on a walk around the neighborhood. We decided to make this exercise session into a walk to Froyolife, which is an hour walk from our street. Then, we decided to go to the United Artist theatre to watch a movie. But there was a problem. We were $3.49 short for my ticket. We looked for change on the ground and waited around for an hour for someone or something. With only 10 minutes left we came up with a 007 plan for 2 people to go to the movies with 1 ticket.
Katie would buy a ticket.
I would be in the bathroom.
She would go through and make conversation with the ticket tearing guy to make sure he remembers her face and letting her in.
She would meet me in the bathroom and give me the stub.
We’d go to the theatre playing xmen and she would steer left and avoid the ticket man because he should remember letting her in.
I would show Katie’s stub and ask which side this movie is on.
We would both get to watch x-men.
Now this is just hypothetical.
Today, my best friend and I oovooed/vchatted or any other lame way to put it. I was exhausted and ended up lying on the bed, whining to my best friend to sing me a lullaby. She ended up singing Christmas songs, Regina Spektor, etc. She kept stopping and asking me if I were asleep yet. That question would wake me up, so I told her to keep singing and ask after singing multiple songs. The Beast awoke from one of the best naps of her life. Turns out the best friend sang about 30 songs to make sure the Beast was put to sleep.
I know it’s weird, but I’m really touched. God is so great.
Must make every day of the summer a GOOD day because there really isn’t a lot of time. Don’t waste a single hour. Be too busy being with God and people you love to even check your facebook! There’s no time to waste. Be loved and love every single day, Christine!

Obviously, I don’t want to do this all by myself (except for the last one) so if you’re my friend, prepare to get sick of me. Heh heh.

"Christine may seem like she’s really open and sharing but she’s really not. There’s a lot she’s hiding."
I don’t know if I’m consciously and purposefully hiding.. But I guess it’s true about me seeming more open than I actually am. I fooled even myself that I was very open until recently. Feels weird now knowing that I’m really not. A lot of bottled up things I didn’t know I was bottling up are being unveiled to me. It’s like information-overload, but secret-overload..about myself. I don’t think I like it…
But if this is where I start or continue for some inner healing, fine! Rather have the sting of the alcohol on a deep wound than let infections rot my whole body. Just because something’s uncomfortable or painful doesn’t mean it’s bad, Christine!
But I love the feeling of my stomach grumbling. It’s one of the best physiological experiences, for me at least.
Senior Awards was a little taste of what graduation will be like. Sitting with your friends, making sarcastic comments, cheering for people, not cheering for some people because I’m busy making sarcastic comments, taking pictures with family, taking pictures with friends, waiting to take pictures with a friend because he/she is busy taking pictures with other people, making your friend wait to take a picture with you because you’re busy taking pictures with other people, blue everywhere. Little snippets!
I’m not always super loud and obnoxious, but I’m often talking, singing (usually on the spot originals into Hallie’s ear), making “Christine noises” (my friends coined that term for whining noises strugglers make).
Some of the things that do make me quiet, though..
1) Being tired. 2) Not knowing what to say. 3) Having so much to say and not knowing where to begin and giving up on saying anything entirely. 4) Being angry/frustrated. 5) Being hurt (by words, actions, situations, anything). 6) Realizing I hurt and accepting and admitting to it. 7) Just feeling like it.
