well hello!! how is everyone doing? good, i hope. so its been a while since ive updated, so i thought id update before i go to school today. let me see, what have i been up of late?? well last week was valentine's day and mine was great. lol, amanda and i ordered smiley's pizza and watched sweet november. now that was fun. amanda got me some nice gifts that i didnt even deserve! but thank you babe! i greatly, greatly appreciate it. buuuuut, i baked her a cake, well my mom baked her a cake but i helped!! which actually turned out really good. so props to my mom. then the day after, which just happened to be one month since amanda and i started going out, i went to her house to watch the notebook and eat some ramen noodles, very romantic, i know. it was actually a really good chick flick, it ALMOST brought one single tear to my eye. no, not really, but it was good.
oh and i got a really funny story from 2 saturday's ago. so we went to juarez for lily's birthday, more specifically to the club FOUR. It was a lot of fun actually, i took cesar and jon along so i wouldnt feel too out of place, but i still kinda felt weird. there were so many high schoolers there, i felt like i didnt belong there, but it was still fun. we even saw jimmy, jon's little brother there, which was pretty damn funny to me, i dont know why. but anyway, so cesar, jon and i order a bottle of whiskey that cost us a cool 80 dollars, right?? so we order it and offer people some and everything was cool, but when people we didnt even offer any to started drinking out of it and not pitching in we got a little upset. we asked them to chip in, and they were like yea, we'll give you 3 bucks and we were just like damn, i dont know. so ultimately, me, jon and cesar decided to not pay for our bottle and we decided to just leave. As soon as we get in the car, lily's boyfriend calls asking why we didnt pay and amanda tried to lie for us. ay, i felt so bad for you babe!! it wasnt her fault at all, but she tried to cover up. but anyway, when they called we were already almost crossing back into the states but we felt bad so we decided to drive back and give them money, but we had to wait to cross back and then cross into mexico, again. lol. we went back, went to the club and jon and i ended up paying about 130 bucks worth of drink, some of which wasnt even ours, but everyone was out of money so we had to put more than necessary. but everything was cool, other than the fact that amanda's friends probably hate us, but hey, im sorry. no hard feeling i hope. lol. so yea, that was 2 saturday's ago. a lot of fun.
as for this weekend, on friday, we played music again and we learned 3 new interpol songs and they sound fuckin cool. we learned "slow hands", "narc" and "evil". damn, they sound good. we just need someone to sing, thats where daniel comes in! but anyway, then on friday we went to daniels house and just hung out there for a while, when amanda went to visit which was really cool of her. then saturday, we played more music and afterward, amanda, gina, jon, cesar and i went to shogun's for some sushi and then to daniels to watch the miner game, but they lost. fuckin losers. but it was still a good night.
and as for school, its going very well right now, im getting some surprisingly good fuckin grades!! right on. and my classes are pretty interesting, i actually have to write a news story for my journalism class on teens going to juarez and drinking, lol. should be fun.
ooooooooohhh yea, and tomorrow, cesar and i leave for Austin, Texas!!!!! yes! im really excited cause on wednesday we get to see interpol!! should be awesome...again. but we also get to spend some time with our homies from A town! maybe we'll go to san antonio too, and just hang out there for one night. then thursday me and cease are driving to college station to pick Brad-O so he can kick it with us while were there. so that should be fun. lol, im taking my xbox so we can drink and play halo like the good old days. ah, we'll be there until sunday, which is a pretty long time. ah i cant wait!!! itll be fuckin cool. im gonna try to sneak my camera into the show so i can put some pics here of the show and of our trip too. the drive is gonna be hella long, hopefully itll go by quick. ah well, ill leave you all now. thats all i got. i hope everyone has a great week and i'll actually miss the EPT, i know i will. but ill be back soon!! hmm, let me think of a question... alrite, tell me what you want from austin and i'll try my hardest to get you it!! cause ill read my journal while im up there, so if you want something reasonable, ill get it...have fun...
