Woke up at 8 after getting to bed around 2:15 last night. Spent the day at Universal Studio (yes, 2nd time this week) with Darla, Iman, and several friends from high school that I don't see often. I was 1 of the 2 drivers. In my car we were bumping to country, pop, rock, etc., and I sunk as my heart desired. Everyone got a kick out of it. I had a great time. My friends were amazed how quick we got there by doing the 210 freeway to the 134- they all usually take the 101. The 210 in my mind can be the greatest kept secret, or worst, depending on time of day, where you're going, and traffic, but it is a beautiful freeway in general. We got on all rides except the studio tour. There were quite a few crowds, but the lines constantly move, which was nice. We took TONS of facebook photos. We also got caught up on each others lives. I enjoyed standing in lines with Darla and pointing out hot guys. So many hot guys there! We had some El Pollo Loco for lunch, but it was so much that we weren't hungry for Pinks Hot Dogs afterward, which was the plan. Kinda bummed about that. Pinks, for you out of towners is basically a popular hot dog stand where celebs and studio people frequent. Lots have hot dogs named after them- Martha Stewart has a hot dog named after her. We did walk around CityWalk afterward looking at the random shops and chatting. I had such a headache most of the afternoon in the back of my head and trailing to the front. I should have gone to the car to get my headache medicine, but instead popped a couple Tylenol, which don't do the trick. I still have the headache at 11:15p.m. Wasn't fun driving home with a headache, but I was the one who drove.
Haven't really had the chance to unwind from my weekend.
It was great to be around friends, but I didn't really get to talk to anyone and I just feel like I need to vent/have someone who can relate to me/talk about my frustrations from this past weekend. I don't know...
Got several calls while I was there this evening, which were good calls, but made me very apprehensive/anxious about tomorrow. I'm going to be seeing several people who I was outed to thanks to the acquaintance mentioned in this post. I know- I'm being vague.
My mom and I talked this evening when I got home as I was getting ready for bed, and the conversation seemed almost normal. My mom told me about playing poker last night with my friend John's parents. She told me about John's parents next major party, which will be a 50s themed party in July.
My dad was practically following me around the house to brag he did my laundry, which I hate since he does not do laundry well. Whites and reds don't go together, and bad things happen when they're mixed. My dad mainly insists on using those icky wire hangers, which drive me insane. I intentionally take out all the wood/plastic hangers when I have my clothes hung on them and stash them in my closet so when I do laundry my clothes are on hangers I like. Oh well. He didn't use my hangers. I won't complain- the clothes are clean making 1 less thing I have to do.
Although I felt kind of dirty after making out with a 55 year old guy last night just because he was some random stranger, it felt good, and I enjoyed it. I needed that whole go into a bar, not know anybody, and wind up with somebody.
I am apprehensive about doing a required online class this quarter that starts tomorrow I guess, and what seems like a very difficult class on Wednesday nights with lots of observations, lesson plan creation, teaching a lesson plan, and writing.
