i've been rejecting this blog

hehehe.. sorry. i've been busy, it's the end of the year and i hadn't done anything worth talking about. but now i do. i gotta lay it all out quickly because i need to write an essay and do a painting and start packing.

it was brooklyn/queens day so all of new york city had that day off. i think the first productive thing i did was help my dad mail out a parking ticket. i remember wednesday through friday were in the 90s and the ac was on everywhere. i skipped lunch and went to meet allyson at target to get essentials for packing. then i went back home and helped my sister make a mock cereal box for her homework. i rode my bike to the beach and met up with katherine and elizabeth afterward. it got a little more windy then but i couldn't notice the difference because we were by the water. about an hour later, dark clouds were coming at us. it had been such a hot day nobody was really worrying except that it was getting late. there was no lifeguard which is really dangerous but there were cops and parks and recreation people. i saw a beach umbrella wiping out a crowd when the clouds got nearer. then a sandstorm occurred and everyone went freaking out. it was the right time to panic when you see police vans and police jetskis and helicopters everywhere. it started precipitating a little when we tried to leave. the storm was a good solution to the 100 degree weather earlier. we decided to go to pizza instead of going home because a) we were hungry and nobody brought food, b) we wanted to wait the storm out, and c) i had never ridden my bike home in the rain nor walked in the rain with no cover. so we sat there watching wheel of fortune eating pizza. like all storms, this one was having heavy and light mood swings so we stopped to take cover when it was impossible for me walk my bike. i ended up taking elizabeth's towel and riding home with it over my head. i was absolutely drenched from the bottom down but i was only worried that my new bike would rust. biking during a thunderstorm at night alone is already dangerous, but i had to go under a highway to get home and that was a scarier place. the thrill of doing this made me feel..awesome. i got home safe anyway and went to bed with no sand in my hair and clean skin. getting a lot done in less than 24 hours is one of the best things to do.

i don't really know why we had to go to school that day. it had been finals week then brooklyn day which equals to no regular, full school day for the past four days. i don't remember doing anything honestly except continuing to clean out my locker.

first thing, i went to meet up at the neighborhood high school with liz and ivana to take the ACTs. we saw middle school classmates there, no exchange of hellos, it was awkward. the ACTs were easy, at least easier than the SATs. there was just too little time and the science part should be omitted. the writing part was on parents using a GPS on their teens' cell phones to track their locations. i disagreed on it, but my essay sounds incredibly rebellious and anti-parents but chill and very opinionated. whoever is grading those should remember the essay was written by a teenager. i edited photos from thursday when i returned home and then went to ikea. a few issues between parents and i came up during that time. i don't want to discuss it, but i was only trying to do the right thing and when the hell did anyone say i will be taking a bus to boston instead of car. fuck that. i fell asleep on the way home and went to bed when we got home. i slept at 8pm and woke up at 11 the next day.

i was still mad at my parents so i tried not to communicate with them first thing in the afternoon. i had to go to the doctors to pick up my health forms so my mom came along. i bought a new suitcase and sandals and a beach towel and my angry-ness eased. it was my grandpa's birthday when we got home. since then, i don't really know what i have been doing except trying to finish sending out the last of the matters to my precollege program. and then i started writing this before doing anything academic-related because i know i would forget again and then never type it at all.

well.. it's 8:30pm on a sunday now. i meant to write this yesterday but i saved it as a draft. wish me luck with regents!
