Ohhhhh boys…

I love Valentine’s Day.

Okay, it’s not Valentine’s Day YET, but already, I love it.

Today, I had to work from 2:30-10:30 and REALLY didn’t want to because I wanted to hanging out with Evan, and Jr and everyone else, AND Jr had said that him & Evan were going to visit and it had been like 3 hours that had passed since he said that, so I was kind of mad.

Then, this girl comes in (apparently she had asked my manager Clares for me, but I didn’t know this till later) with her friend & some guy and asks me to help her find a gift for her little sister. A pink, sparkly shirt. I work at Justice for Girls; pink and sparkly ISN’T exactly uncommon there. So, I was kind of confused what she was looking for, so I go ask Clares who was folding the jean wall. And THEN! Pops out Evan, holding a stuffed animal and roses. I just about died.

THEN! He’s all, “Chocolate!” and there’s Joe throwing him a heart-shaped chocolate box. Then he’s all, “Other chocolate box!” and Jr comes running over and throws it to him (Jr went to the wrong side so that’s why he was running over.. haha). Then he’s all, “Happy Valentine’s Day!” I was smiling so much my face was hurting.

Clares LOVED it, too. Almost more than I did. She was FREAKING out and even dragged Evelyn from the bathroom to come watch.

And after ALL that, Evan has me turn around and he puts a necklace on me (it’s so cute- it has a guitar on it too!!). I honestly can’t ask for a better suprise.

Then he hugged me and kissed me on the cheek, I died of happiness, gave Joe da hoe a hug, then Jr a hug, then Evan another hug. It was the best thing of my life.

And that was my day(:

OH! and earlier on break, I walked past some thug looking guy and he was all, “DAMN girl!” I just about died of laughter right then and there. Hilarious.

Best day ever(:


Saturday, February 5th.

Is that wedding bells I hear?

Yes, I am apparently getting married, once again. (I have had a few “husbands” [and wives…]).

And now apparently, I am engaged to Evan. According to his bus driver.

So, Saturday night Evan asks if I want to go to the mall. So I do, and I meet him, Mike, Jr, and Jacob there. We walk around basically the ENTIRE mall (it’s a LONG walk to, because Grapevine Mills Mall is one story and huge) and Evan has been hinting he’s going to do something, but I have no idea what it is.

Finally, I get what he was talking about. He takes me by the hand and forces me into a diamond store and tells the Indian man that he is looking for an engagement ring. I swear my face has never been SO red. I was so embarrassed.

We of course can’t find anything (and we’re not really getting engaged) and leave. Gosh, I was so embarrassed.

Later, Mike and Jacob have to leave so it’s just Evan, Jr, and I. THEN, we see the Group USA store with all the wedding dresses. LIGHTBULB, Evan suggest we go look for a wedding dress.

Hardy Har-Har.

But we go in and just look at dresses for like ever.

Eventually we get bored, and leave. (Oh! Did I mention me and Evan were holding hands the entire time too? And apparently there’s some he gives 90%, I give 10% hand-hold rule…)

And then we get bored of the mall, and leave to Jr’s house. But Evan’s dad calls and says he has to come home ASAP, so he drops off Jr and me n Jr just chill at his house with Hot Joe and Joe-da-Hoe. And Jayda of course.

I FINALLY sing with Jr (fall for you) and he of course tells Evan it was amazing (I really CAN’T sing, at all). And it’s kinda fun. Hanging out with them all.

Then, it’s like 11, so I go home.

The end. 🙂 haha .

Friday, February 4th.

Friday, Friday, Friday.

February 4th, 2011 was one of the best days ever.

Basically it went like this:

12:40ish- Go over to Cannon’s. Walk to some park with Cannon, Jr, Evan, and Joe.

Later, Jacob joins us.

We slide down the hill a bunch of times, then attempt to make some kind of fort, fail, then have a big snowball fight.

Walk to Evan’s house, watch Tosh.0, then the Linkin Park concert on MTV.

Jr and Evan try to get me to sing, and fail. (Later on, I slightly sing to fall for you while Jr is on the piano, but Evan was standing right next to me so i was as quite as possible.)

During the Linkin Park Concert, Marissa comes over.

They try to fix the XBOX and fail. So they settle on some Fox game, & Mario Kart.

Hannah comes over.

Me and Evan are sitting by each other and holding hands(:

Laterrr, we watch Cast Away. I keep getting told how pretty I am, CONSTANTLY. And he kept kissing my hand.

After Cast Away, Evan gives me a back massage (it was heavenly) and sings to me while doing this (also heavenly). And the whole time he kept kissing my shoulders and neck. Which sent literal CHILLs down my spine.

Everyone starts going home, and eventually it’s just me and Evan.

I knew it was coming, like really knew. Evan laughs, and I’m all “What?” and he’s all it’s nothing, it’s stupid. And I’m all OKAY now you have to tell me. And he says:

“I really want to kiss you.”

My oh-so-stupid line:

“Then, why don’t you?”

Then we kiss. It was like in the movies. Fireworks.

Even if he wasn’t a very good kisser… haha.

But it was magical. And I loved every minute of it.

10:30 – My dad comes to pick me up. And I go home.

That was my magical Friday. Our first kiss.


New semester. New classes.

So, first and second period I have a class at the CCE (career center east), and it’s called Health Science Technology (because I want to be a nurse). And I have it with Evan.

Goodness. So, once again I like Evan. But it’s not just a crush, I think he is one of the most perfect people ever. Which sounds lame, and stupid, and I hate saying things like that, but it’s the truth.

It all started over with me texting him I believe. Soon after breaking up with Mackenzie, I went to Marissa T.’s house one Friday. Marissa, Jr, Whitney, Mike, Jacob, Hannah, Cannon, and Joe were there (and Evan of course). We talked a lot and watched the other guys play Halo.

Then I had to leave because I had to go to Matt Couch’s surprise party. And Sarah’s birthday party. So, he walked me to my oh-so-lovely van, and we said goodbye.

Then, we found out we had Health Sci Tech together first period. That’s a 2 1/2 hour class. It has to be the best class ever. And we kept spending Fridays &some Saturdays together.

One particular Friday, (January 21st) I went over to Jr’s house and  “intruded” on a boy’s night (so did Marissa, but she had to leave because there weren’t any parents home) and me and Evan somewhat held hands and it was nice. I kinda was being mean though (according to Cannon), but eventually it was great in the end.

Another Friday (January 28th) I went over to Jr’s and it was perfect. I got to sit in the lazyboy chair sorta thing and Evan eventually sat in it with me. So, we were kinda really squished but it wasn’t so bad. Then, he drove me home and it was kinda all awk when we were standing at my door.. But I just hugged him then went inside. I mean, I wanted him to kiss me, but I was uberly nervous, so I couldn’t. Oh and that night his fb status was: Vanilla…. 🙂 . It took me FOREVER to get what the heckle he was talkin’ about, but I FINALLY remembered I smell like vanilla. haha yeahh …

February 3rd (I think..) I went over to Jr’s house (once again…) and Evan and him attacked me with silly string. HOW was I supposed to know that “Defend yourself” with a silly string can meant to DEFEND myself from them? Anyways, I was just COVERED with silly string (they had two cans EACH) and barely got them… It was hilarious and EVERYWHERE.

It’s going great. I am loving life. 🙂

WOW, time flies when you’re doing stuff you’re not supposed to do…

WOW. So I haven’t blogged in forever.

A lot has happened.


First, school’s been okay. I’ve been slack in my classes and not really doing my homework… Oops. Yeah, New Year’s Resolution #1 – Do ALL of my homework. EVERYDAY.

Second, I found out this guy Ryan H. had a crush on me. So he and I hung out a bit, and I began to like him. He’s a bit nerdy, so I still didn’t really admit I liked him. Turns out Sarah liked him. A LOT. And she was the one to push me to like him. And WHILE pushing me to like him she was secretly hanging with him, and flirting like crazy. He asked me to homecoming, made me a mum (it’s a Texas thing…) and we went together. Right after Sarah stole him away. But, apparently, he still liked me or whatever, and told Sarah this. Even after he told her he liked her and they were all flirt buddies. SO, I had to fix things and tell him he should like Sarah not me, and he’s all but I thought you liked me… And I did. But I told him I didn’t (Sarah was crying, and honestly, I rather have her be happy than me). They got together and now are happy-go-lucky.

Third, I had a crush on Evan again. But he didn’t seem to feel the same (even though Ashley B. said he did) so I gave up.

Fourth, I got a boyfriend, Mackenzie L. He’s a super sweet Canadian.We have done some not-so-strivingforgood things though… But he makes me feel alive. Like life isn’t so damn hard after all.

But then there’s Evan.

Fifth, yesterday Kenz came with me to the New Year’s Eve Dance for my church. I didn’t really want him to come because I wanted to see Evan alone. But, he wanted to come, so he did. (And we got in trouble, too. For kissing at midnight. OUR Bad. But I got my new year’s kiss so forget them.)

Evan was a big baby though. He acted all depressed the whole night. Then almost the last dance I asked him to dance.

This is basically how it went-

“Sorry I’m not my usual cheery self, tonight hasn’t been the best night ever.”

“How so?”

“Well, I made a goal not to dance with anyone tonight, but then I saw this girl and she looked really lonely, so I decided I’d ask her to dance. So, I went up to her being all nice and cheerful and asked her to dance. She just looks at me all funny and says ‘NO.’ Guess I wasn’t good enough for her.”

“Evan, you’re good enough for anyone.”

“Oh not anyone.”

“Yes anyone.”


“Don’t argue with me, I’m always right remember?” (which is a joke between us.)

“No Amanda, sometimes you aren’t always right. Sometimes you’re really wrong.” (AND he looks right at Kenz. WHAT?!)


“No, Amanda, don’t even try to look at me.”

“But… okay.”

Then he avoids eye contact for the rest of the dance til the song ends.


I didn’t do anything wrong, I brought my boyfriend to the dance. Big whoop. He’s brought his girlfriend to the dance (it was a long time ago.. but still) and did I throw a hissy fit? NO. I did not. I almost started crying though. I felt really bad. Why?! I don’t know. But I was really detached to Kenz the rest of the night, and still am. But I need time. I need to think. Clear my head. Fix things.

Oh well, I looked super cute in my black sparkly dress, black tights, and new black heels with my red lipstick, and red nails. I looked fiiiiine. 🙂

New Year’s Resolution #2: Fix things. With Evan, Gabe, Kenz, and Mattie.

New Year’s Resolution #3: After fixing things, get over my depression from the drama with those people and lose 20lbs. (NO, I wouldn’t be anorexic if I did that. I’d still be 115.) And I just want to do it before the summer. No biggie.

New Year’s Resolution #4-10: Apply to colleges. Save money. Go to EFY. Buy car. Save money for college. Get scholarships. Fix house. Clean &keep house clean. Figure out things with boys. Find soulmate.

This year should be easy-peasy lemon squeezy.

Ha. 🙂

Happy New Year’s!

Oh and I happen to be watching Titanic right now so hence the picture… It makes me think of true love. Except for the super depressing-ness of it all.


Eat. Love. Pray.


Saw Eat. Pray. Love. today. It was great. I would love to travel the world like she did…. But I’ve decided to overlook where how my life is right now…

Eat. – I love food. I’ve stopped trying to not eat, and sadly, I’ve been OVER-eating.

Love. – Boys have sucked. There’s this nerdy-ish guy Ryan who’s nice and funny, just EXTREMELY quiet. He supposedly likes me but he’s my friend’s ex’s best friend. Yeah… AND My friend was just hurt by a guy she loved. I want him to go to jail, but her mom and her don’t so everyone has to stay silent. I shouldn’t really hate people, but goodness. I hate him. So the “Love” department is closed for repairs… But I have many years to find love. I mean I don’t want to get married before I’m 25, so I have at least 9 years…

Pray. – I suck in religion right now. I haven’t made the best decisions, but they aren’t been too terrible. But still I should pray more. Maybe less bad things would happen…

So, life has been the greatest right now, but maybe it’ll get better?

Just gotta strive for good.

Kinda forgot to do that recently… Just got to keep reminding myself.

Have a great day(: If anyone’s reading…
