I don’t know what to say other than sorry. You must understand that the past two months have been overwhelmingly busy- so many weekends wasted with SATs, preparing for exams, prom, graduation, beach trips, working brunches, final projects, becoming a senior, planning college visits, and being with friends and family. I’ll try and provide you with a decent update- but bear with me! Before I delve into what I’ve been up to for the past two months or so, I must warn you, I’m about to leave for 3 weeks and I’ll be without internet and phone reception until July 10th or so. I’m headed up to the White Mountains to play some tennis, and come back a changed person. Without getting too enthralled, I must say that I’m really excited. But let’s change the subject.
I’ve told you about the new kitten already. She remains nameless, though I’ve been considering calling her Killer because she killed my fish Johnny. But if you have any ideas please send them to me. She’s a little fireball, full of energy and no limitations. She’s pretty spiteful towards people who discipline her too… it’s quite funny! But I love her nonetheless, and she’s made a wonderful addition to our little family.
Memorial Day Weekend rendered a lot of fuuuun. I went to the beach for the first time with my good friend Hanae, and then a few days later found myself at Fenway watching a White Sox v. Red Sox game with Sam. We got tickets for his graduation present and even though the White Sox won, we had a lot of fun. The next day, Sam and I headed into the North End and explored a bit. On Salem Street we found the most wonderful cafe- Cafe Nuovo, there’s a review on Vin et Grub- so click here to read it!
The rest of that week was full of exams- which ended up turning out quite well. I didn’t fail a single one, even though I felt like I failed three out of five. That Saturday ended up being prom which was a nice time. Really low key, and full of great moments with friends. Our photos didn’t turn out that well- turns out Sam and I are really bad at taking photos together, but needless to say we had fun. The next morning we woke up super early and got breakfast at Beckys before I had to work brunch. Personally, I thought it was a really nice way to end the week.
Monday brought the class picnic, which proved eventful. I got the worst sunburn of my life, and a kid hit a woman in the face with a baseball, and she needed to be taken away by an ambulance. It was nice to be outside and see my classmates, even though it was really hot and we were at one of my least favorite locations in Maine. Tuesday was pretty relaxing too. I made some blueberry ice cream- recipe soon to be posted on Vin et Grub, played some tennis, and had a low key evening in Westbrook. Wednesday was a little different- final day of school- our exams were handed back, and then I headed to Pai Men and ate Ramen with Hanae. We later drove to her house in Freeport, and went to a baseball game in Wiscasset to see Sam and some of our other friends play. The night ended with some delicious Japanese Curry Rice!
Thursday was such a nice day in my opinion. Hanae and I drove to Popham early in the morning, and almost fell asleep in the sand. It was sooo warm out- almost 93 degrees. We had to go to our tennis team picnic in Buxton, but luckily we got to swim in a nice pool and play some tennis on clay courts- a rare treat up north. That night was pretty nice too, I went to Westbrook again and watched some Pokemon! I know that sounds awfully childish, but sometimes I really like to watch old tv shows that bring me back to my childhood. Friday was my favorite day though. I woke up really early and drove down to Arundle with my favorite coworker Miranda, and we went antiquing! In the afternoon, I drove over to the fields to watch Sammy graduate, and afterwards we went out to dinner with a party of nine. Around 10 or so, we found ourselves at Higgins Beach, sitting and looking at the stars. After a really quick nighttime swim, we jumped into the car and sped to Portland, where our night ended with a few episodes of Cops and other trashy tv programs.
I feel like I’ve lost my knack for writing– but I promise it’ll come back. I guess I just wanted to prove to you guys that I have been incredibly busy and there’s been little time for blogging. I promise that as the summer progresses I’ll become a better blogger.
Sorry this has been a really boring post! I need to go get ready for an 8:30 Res at a mysterious restaurant, and I’ll try posting a few more times before I leave for tennis in NH!
