Woke up to a miserable hot summer morning in my room. Or rather, afternoon. Decided to try something new for a change. Was planning to jog at 4 or 6 am with my highschool PE shorts and attire in the morning to deposit some $ at my bank in Bixby Knolls, but i slept in.
So instead I walked there in the afternoon. Left the house at around 2 with casual dress clothes and jeans. It was hot. Got to the steep hill where the In and Out and Home Depot was, but there wasnt a sidewalk so took a 10 minute detour to the right (dirt, gravel road with those oil ground pumpers enclosed with fences and “No Tresspassing” signs) before reaching a sidewalk and headed straight back uphill.
This new route started to morph more into a residential area, rather than the busy street. Quite calm imo. There was an overpass that I had to cross. Kinda cool though, walking over an overpass. Hundreds of cars zoom pass by underneath me. My first time really walking over a freeway overpass. Quite pathetic now that I think of it…. I’m 19, heading onto my sophomore year in community college and walking over an overpass for the first time intriges me. Or invigorates me. Well, that and listening to the some 100 deadmau5 songs I torrented onto my Zune HD player.
About half an hour or so in there was nothing but nice residential neighborhoods. Made me feel safe. Made up my mind on my future jogging route…. It was either uptown Long Beach, or *gasps* downtown. xD
Then I walked by Hughes middle school and. Long story short I walked a few minutes after passing it until I reached an intersection I recognized before. The bus I usually take to the campus passes by my bank and this intersection… so I figured out I went to far. So I backtracked where the bus’s usual route from the campus and ended up at my bank. Deposited my moneys and made a turn back towards that nice residential area I mentioned earlier.
Oh the irony, straight ahead from where my bank was, lead right where the middle school was. ><. I couldve just took a left after I exited the middle school campus area in the first place (well, now I know what to do next time I take this route).
So I headed back down. Stopped by in to take a drink from the playgound’s water fountain. It was warm of course, but oh gawd. I really needed that. Havent drank (or ate anything) since I woke up… of course by then that was 5 hours ago.
Onwards I walked from the residential area to the overpass and downhill. I was sure exhausted. Sweating of course too. But my My Little Pony beanie soaked up most of my sweat.
(yeah yeah yeah i know. using a beanie as a sweatband on a hot summer day like this? well, i like my MLP beanies FYI, and i didnt have time to fix my hair (i hate my naturally curly hair), so i covered it up with a white beanie with a patch of 3 blue diamonds.
Eventually got to familiar territory. Decided to drop by my friend, Jasons house. Then decided to drop by Mcdonalds cuz i was hella hungry, and hella thirstly. and nearly hella collasped on the road.
Eventually got to McDonalds. Im not a fan of fast food, but boy. Air Conditioned. Big Mac. Fries (small). Chicken Nuggets (20 pc). And Sweet Tea! MMm Mmm MMm Mmm MMM!
The Big Mac was small as usually (when compared to those large sized burgers from Carls Jr., but it looked exactly what its advertised in the pictures and commercials. So um, Kudos to you, Signal Hill Mcee Dee! Only finished the burger, drink, and 5 nuggets before heading out.
10 minutes later got to my friends house. His door is usually left unlocked as usual, so I walked in. Wrote a note for him and family to enjoy my leftovers. Petted their cat. And walked back out. ^^
Then it was another hellish 15-20 minute walk to my house. Sigh*
Got home at around 5 exactly.
I was so hot and exhausted that I couldnt hold my legs any longer. Plopped down on my humid bedroom for a few mins. Stupid flies got in. Someone left my door open when I was out. They were idiotically banging themselves against my closet door mirror or window screen. Couldnt take it anymore to I went upstairs to take a shower.
But before I did, I decided to shave my hair. For the first time, I shaved myself bald. Its not perfect (cuz i was doing it to myself with a mechanical razor), but it was alright. I thought I could pass off as a monk. Heh. That would surprise my dad ^^. But Id rather not left anyone know until a few weeks after my hair grows out a bit more. Then I shall reveal my near hairless scalp to them.
Learning from my mistake from last time, this time I placed newspaper on the floor to catch my hair (not in the sink). And then I finished it off with a nice relaxing shower.
Of course in the end I showed my sister my hair. She thought I had a friend cut my hair for me, but I told her I did it myself (and mainly because of the hot weather we’ve been recently having). ^^
Then comes the butthurt moment. One of those moments that just…. that just ruin your whole day. I mean. Gah! I had such a good feeling Sunday morning and afternoon until this moment. Now. Im all depressed and angered!… sigh*
So, I’ll try to make this as succinct as possible and understandably as I can…
Dad caught on that my gave myself another one of those “self haircuts” in the bathroom again. Told me to take off my beanie. So I did. And this is when all hell broke loose.
Dad wasnt impressed by the way I cut it (I know, it wasnt perfect, heck I didnt really like it, but, what he said afterwards, made me wanna just—- ><)
So dad, asked me who cut my hair. Who made me do it. Why did I do it? Then he started lecturing me about gang bangers and how they have their hair like that.
And when I heard him starting to talk to me with the “gang” lecture, thats when I started to feel ashamed of my haircut. I now see of it as a skinhead haircut. :[
And my mom. Oh gawd my mom. She was in the same boat with my dad and… ugh! They both gave me the “talk”. Ahg! I just hated myself then.
Why did you do that? Dont cut your hair ever again! Youll clog the sink again. Who told you to? Do you want to be in a gang or something? Why must you do things like this to me? You always dissapoint me with things like that. Its one of those god damn stupid habit of yours. You got to change it. Stop looking down all the time. You’ll never acheive anything with that attitude. You have to dress nice and neat.
omg omg omg omg! just make it stop! ><
so yeah. i … sigh*
my day is ruined.
hope ill sleep this off or something… i hate days like this…
Just when everything is going along all well and smoothly, as if nothing could take it away- something likethishappens and makes as if whatever that just happened that day, not matter at all.
Well. Guess thats all I have to say. Dont even want to go back and proofread what I wrote. Later. :t
