June 26, 2012 SEEING BRANDON OVER THE SUMMER!! I’ve written a ton recently about how much I LOVE the summer, but there’s one thing that’s SO not cool…I don’t get to see Brandon every day! I mean I suppose I COULD see him every day, but I think his family would get pretty concerned if I walked around their front door several times each afternoon, like I walk by his locker in school! (OK, I don’t walk by his locker a few times EVERY day…I’m not a stalker or anything!) We haven’t really talked on the phone a ton (and come to think of it…whenever he’s called me, I’ve been in the bathroom and Brianna’s humiliated me!) It’s not like we’re a couple or anything. But I definitely want to keep in touch over the summer, and maybe even hang out and stuff. I just don’t know how to do it! Maybe I could find out his Skype name so I can be all casual online some day, like, “Hey stranger…how’s your summer going?!?” Except with less punctuation. I don’t want to look like I’m crazy overexcited to talk to him! But if I just see him online and we start casually chatting, we could chat kind of regularly. We could be Skype buddies! Then one day I could be like, “OMG I’m SO bored today! I wanted to go ride my bike with Chloe and Zoey, but they’re sick.” Then he’d be like, “BOTH of them?” And I’d realize I’m not a good liar. LOL! But then he’d ask, “Want to go ride bikes with me?” And then we could hang out all afternoon! We could get pizza for lunch and maybe even go see a movie too. Wow, that would be like a real date! I don’t think we’re really THERE yet, but I definitely feel a lot closer to him after everything that happened with the animal shelter and the ice skating competition! OMG I just had a GREAT idea! So remember I had that garage sale a while back and made a TON of cash? I was thinking that maybe I’d go through some of my stuff and sell more of it. Last time I found all these lame reasons to keep things I never use. (Like, I can’t sell these old pink bunny slippers. So what if I never wear them? Maybe someday I’ll want to make a bunny costume for a doll, and these will come in handy!) Anyways, I was thinking that maybe I’d sell my stuff on eBay instead of doing a garage sale, with my Mom’s help…and I’ll need really good pictures of all my stuff. I could totally ask Brandon to help with that! He’s SUCH an awesome photographer, and I know he loves helping people out. (He’s SO sweet!!!) So now it’s just a matter of WHEN I’ll do this. I’ll want him to come over when Brianna isn’t here. If she’s home, I just KNOW she’ll talk his ear off…or Miss Penelope will! Maybe I can get Mom to stay outside in the kiddie pool with her. So I should probably do it on a super hot day when I know Brianna will want to swim. (And by swim, I mean sit in a foot of water…that pool is SO tiny!!) BRB…phone! Back! So that was Chloe, and she thinks I have an AWESOME idea. Squeeeee!! I can’t wait to see Brandon again. School just ended recently and it already feels like way too long. What about YOU? Do you have a crush, and will you get to see him over the summer?
