Day Six: Prediction

If the events of this week are any indicator of what the rest of the summer will look like, then this is going to be a buzz kill of a summer. Don’t get me wrong– Wednesday night and today were pretty fun overall, but they seem pretty disappointing in comparison to what I expected this summer would be like.

So what does that mean? Does that mean my expectations are too high to be realistically possible? Or is it simply too soon to assume what the rest of the summer will be like based on the events of a couple of days in the first week of summer?

I don’t think my expectations are too high. I believe wanting to spend time with my friends, have some fun, and make a few stupid videos is reasonable. I also wanted to avoid being stuck alone at home as much as possible, and avoid boredom at all costs.

I don’t know… I’m not sure if I really care right now either, because my mind is shutting down, ready for sleep.

Here’s a quick recap of today: I met up with Jon, Kristin, and Anne early today at 10:30 A.M. so we could all get some quality blood-filled gaming in before lunch. We briefly separated for lunch and then met up again at around 1:00 P.M. to mess around at Canyon Creek. We goofed around on the playground ’til about four, and then everyone went home (well, in Jon’s case, he went to work). It was an OK day overall, and it definitely beat Monday and Tuesday.

It’s kind of ironic that during our last summer of high school, we keep spending time at our old elementary school. It seems as if we’re on the brink of entering the adult world, getting ready to begin our individual lives, and we keep trying to avoid it by going back to where we started. Then again, not all of us are going back to Canyon Creek a lot– I am. I keep going back there… Jon has only been there once this summer and Kristin has been there twice, and I’ve been there three times in the past four days. Why do I keep going back? Am I looking for something from the past to make sense of the coming future? Or am I just trying to hold on to the past as long as possible?


It’s time to get some sleep, not debate life’s random questions. Good night.
