Got off school on June 23.
Spent the night of June 25 at my friend Carlee’s house. Tried to sneak into a kegger. Didn’t work, because it just so happened that the first person we ran into is the guy Carlee used to purposefully piss off daily. Instead we went down and played a strange cross between hockey and soccer with some drunk college boys in the parking lot of the local pizza & beer joint.
Went to work 4 days a week all of summer.
July 5, started driver’s ed.
July 14, threw a two-weeks-delayed party for Canada Day. The entire party consisted of me, Carlee, my other best friend Sara, Sara’s boyfriend and HIS best friend, and two losers we invited out of pity but shortly got sick of and sent home, claiming that the party was over three hours before it actually was just so they’d go away.
Continued driver’s ed.
August 14, got out of driver’s ed.
August 16, flew to New Orleans to stay with my sister.
August 17, watched my first WWF event, got drunk for the first time.
August 18-26, much sister-condoned drinking (she’s a bartender, showed me how to mix some drinks) and many electric guitar lessons from my big, burly wrestler-wannabe brother-in-law, also somewhere in there I saw M:I2
August 27, watched SummerSlam with my sister, b-i-l and some of their friends, almost had sex with my sister’s bartender buddy, didn’t because we realized my sister would kill him if we did; let myself get drawn into a drinking contest with b-i-l, dropped out after ten shots of cheri beri and two shots of tequila (could still walk, not a straight line but good enough)
August 28, wandered Bourbon Street
August 29, flew home
August 30-September 3, house- and pet-sitted for mom’s best friend
September 1, went to county fair with Carlee
September 5, back to school for my senior year of HS
