An ending year brings about realizations

So I guess Danny and I are settling right now. We still, or I still, acknowledge the feelings we have but we really haven’t talked at all for about five days now. I’ve gotten seven words out of him in five days, all in one message. But, as one of my other friends pointed out, at least he replied. Th...

Happy endings sometimes happen

The date was absolutely amazing! Danny and I have been out on another one since then, and we’re planning a third. I’m so excited; I can hardly control myself. We went to the park and he played his guitar for me for a long time. He’s really good, and it sounds so pretty. I didn’t recognize a...

First date creates anxiety

I’m so nervous today; I’m going out on a date with Danny. I’m so excited things could turn out well but so scared I’m going to mess this up. See, I’ve hardly dated. At all. When I was in my last relationship, I went on a few dates one week while my boyfriend-at-the-time had been visiting me...

New friends create new feelings

This last week has been a bout of depression for me. My school work is piling up, and it’s really stressful. Everyone keeps making a big deal about End of Course Exams, and I have an AP test coming up in the next couple of weeks, on top of the homework and studying I’m falling behind on. It’s li...

Digging up the past

This weekend has been really interesting and really fun. I’m still catching up with some old friends, and I even caught up with an old boyfriend. We talked a lot this weekend, and I’m getting caught up a little bit with his best friend. I haven’t talked to either of them more than a couple ti...

One friend, two friend, old friend, new friend

So... What the heck? So confused this week it’s not even funny! I started talking to a lot of my old friends this last week, and some of them I’m really happy to talk to and others we just do not click anymore. One of them has been pulling all these stupid sex jokes, and sexist jokes, and it re...

Find out who your friends are

Victoria Walker

March 30, 2011

It’s been a very interesting week for me. I’ve truly been finding out who my friends are, behind my back and to their other friends. First of all, I’ve found out one of my friends is hypocritical towards some. He’s dating one of my friends, and he won’t let her have male friends, but he ca...

I’m never alone

This week is already starting out great. My friend Aiden asked me to prom earlier, and now I just don’t know what to do. I said yes, of course, but what now? Dress? Ticket? When do those even go on sale? Where is prom even going to be? I always thought they did it at school just like homecoming, bu...

Friends for never, friends for ever

This week has settled down a little. Things are up and down with Zach. One minute we’re close, the next he’s pushing me away, and then it just starts over. Sometimes it changes over night, sometimes several times a day. I’m not really sure what to do about it. The mixed signals are driving me...

Love is simply love

February 22, 2011

This week was absolutely lovely. Not. I mean, it’s been lovely if you like sitting around thinking about things that irritate you and dwelling on the past for far longer than your time is actually worth, but I quite honestly don’t feel that way. So this week has been absolutely lovely in the mo...

‘The kids I live for’

February 18, 2011

Boy, has this been a week… It’s like all of my teachers decided to gang up on us at one time. Tonight, I won’t be sleeping. I have too much homework to even think of doing such a thing, and I know I’m not the only one because I heard some people talking about it in my first hour this morning to...
