Okay, so the posting every day thing didn’t exactly work out. Can I just use the ‘I’ve been busy’ excuse? I suppose it’s true. I also couldn’t think of anything interesting to write about it.
It’s been another boring week of school. The teachers really are piling on the homework this year.
I kinda decided when I started this blog I wouldn’t write to much about the guy I like, but – I’m going to. So screw it.
Basically, I think I might love him. Even though I’m only thirteen, and people think that’s way too young to love someone. But I think I have loved him for more than a year, if I’m honest with myself. I’ve drifted in and out of crushes on other people, but he’s always there. Because of our surnames, we sit together in practically all of our lessons at school, so that amounts to a lot of talking. He knows more about me than some of my girl friends, and I know a lot about him. He’s not conventionally good looking, but that doesn’t really bother me. Sure, good looks are a bonus, but they’re not a necessity.
His name is FF. Well, that’s obviously not his real name. It’s not even his real initials – it’s a nickname, but I’m not even going to tell an anonymous blog what it is. It’s rather embaressing. Have fun guessing though, if anyone’s reading.
He’s funny, and fun to talk to, and just basically awesome. He’s clueless about girls, but I kinda like that. He’s also never had a girlfriend (except for once, but that ended within a day. Long story.) and I like that too. I like it when he teases me, and when he calls me his best friend always, and when he says my name in that whiny voice he puts on. I like it when the teacher says something, and he grins at me because he just knows I’ll find it funny. I like the fact that he draws smiley faces in my book, and he writes hello upside down with the numbers on my calculator (no prizes for guessing that one of the lessons we sit together in is maths) I like the way he comes up behind me and prods me to make me jump. And I like that massive grin he always has on when I turn around. I just like him, basically.
But that’s enough of all the stupid boy stuff, let’s change the subject =]
It is now 83 days until the Twilight film =] I’m talking about the UK release, of course, before everyone tries to correct me. I’m so super excited. I got my Dad to buy me and my friend H a poster from ebay, which was SUPPOSED to arrive today, but didn’t :( It’d better arrive on Monday, I’m going to rearrange all the other various band/film posters on my walls to make room for it! Something that makes me peeved is the fact that America are getting treated so much better than the UK about Twilight. They get the calendar, t-shirts, earlier release date, etc etc. Twilight has a huge fanbase in Britain (and everywhere else that’s getting shoved aside) too you know Summit! Show us some Twilight Love! Bring the release date forward to be the same as the US release…go on, you know you want to…I know that at least me and my best friend will love you forever =]
Oh, and don’t get me started on WB changing the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince release to JULY! I think I might be even madder about that. And in my opinion, they’re wrong if they think it means they’ll get more money. Yeah, it won’t have to compete with Twilight, but the casual movie fans who might go see it if they feel like it are less likely to go now, due to the fact that July is most definitely a summer month. Less people go to the cinema in July! I know I don’t have a company worth millions of pounds like Warner Brothers, but even I know that. I suppose they know what they’re doing. But it’s making a lot of fans mad. I heard on a podcat that WB have even recieved death threats. Death threats. I can’t believe anybody would go that far. I can’t believe that anyone who’s a fan of a book like Harry Potter would ever send someone a death threat over said book/film. Some people really are pathetic.
I do know one thing that happened this week that I want to write about. Okay, so we were in PE on Tuesday. I’m not the best hockey player in the world, but I’m certainly not the worst. I know how to pass a ball, and I know how to score, and I know how to intercept. But I messed up one pass – one pass – to my teammate, and also my second best friend, so somebody on the other team got it. Usually, my teacher gives merits to people who intercept well, so the person who got the ball asked her for one. But even I’ll admit it wasn’t a good pass, and I practically threw it at her. So Miss said ‘No, you didn’t really intercept. It wasn’t a hard pass.’ So the girl who got the ball said to my friend who I was passing to (and I heard, because I was about two feet or so behind them) ‘Well, that shows something about Rachel’s (my) passing then’ and my friend just laughed and nodded. Laughed and nodded. Is that what a friend should do? I don’t think so, not a best friend. But of course, my friend didn’t know I was right behind her, so she agreed. How un-loyal is that? I would never do that. I’d have at least said ‘Nah, she’s a good passer. Just that one pass wasn’t so great.’ Isn’t that the BEST FRIEND thing to say? I asked her why she didn’t try defend me or anything later, and she denied it ever happened. I WAS RIGHT THERE!
I think that’s all for now. Ta-ta.
