I was invited to my friend's birthday party yesterday at this place called Yankee Doodles. There was only about ten of us. It was a sports bar and we played some arcade games there but mostly pool. I got there about an hour late though so I had cake right after the lunch which was a Yankee burger. It was pretty much just a regular burger but I think I might have tasted some salad dressing in there. It was still good, although, it seemed like the patty was slipping out from between the two pieces of bread. I don't know why, but some of the people that were at the party put ketchup and mustard in some coke or water, and then had the idea to make a friend drink it for five dollars. It looked so nasty too and we all pitched in some money, although I was eating so I didn't, but he still got his five dollars and he didn't like it either though because he was talking about how nasty it was for the rest of the day. Then the cake came and the frosting was yellow and red to he just didn't eat the top frosting. So after we left there, we went to the school near his house to play capture the flag and after awhile, an alarm went off and we all thought it was a car alarm, but it wouldn't stop so we figured it was the school alarm because after all, one of our friend's was on the roof! So we left then and went home to play the Birthday boy's new game: Halo Reach. That game is so fun. We also played some Call Of Duty. I had another party to go to that day, but I didn't go because I spent the night at the birthday boys house and so did the kid that climbed up on the roof of the school. We stayed up until about 6:00AM playing Halo online. Then I turned everything off, because everyone else dozed off, and so I did too. We woke up at about 8:00-9:00AM so I'm pretty tired right now. I also woke up feeling sick and I feel sick right now too, and the birthday boy told me that he just got done being sick so I could have caught whatever he had. But I have a strong immune system so I'm sure it will pass by tomorrow, at least I hope because I have soccer and school tomorrow. In the morning, I realized I couldn't find my little backpack I brought with me and it turns out I left it at Yankee Doodles. I'm so glad we found it though because It had many important things in there such as two memberships and my keys. So we got that back and then came home so I could finish my homework.

Steam is a software, I think, that you can download onto your computer and use it to play games off of, and you can buy games on there, and I found a free game called Alien Swarm, but it ran super slow on my computer so it looked like really crappy stop motion animation because the aliens would be at one place and be at another without you seeing them move there, but of course you knew where they were going. It really sucked so my dad put all the graphics really low on the game, and it got better. It was running more smoothly, but it still could have been running more smoothly, but there was nothing I could do. You could also see the small graphics difference, and I guess the graphics are only a luxury. But, my dad got this game, left for dead, awhile back when he had his own steam account, and he downloaded it, but he lost his account information, so when I typed in the bunch of letters and number to get it onto my computer, it said it had already been downloaded on another steam account, which was my dads so now we can't play it and that sucks. So I highly doubt that I will buy any games from steam because it will probably run really slowly like Alien swarm did. But maybe I just need a new graphics card, or I don't know. But steam looks like a really cool program.

My music has went to liking everything except country, but mostly Linkin Park music. Now since sophomore year of listening to my friends i-pod, it has changed to liking more scream-o and dubstep/techno. He introduced me into dubstep the other day, and I loved it. I asked him to make me a mix of dubstep songs he has, and he was I guess you could say excited to make it because he was impressing me by doing it and probably happy that hew as the one who put that influence of music in me. He is in my AP World History class and Honors English class. Sometimes I invite him to my house, like I did Wednesday, to work on the History outline and it works out. He has only been over twice though and the first we got less done than the second time, but I did invite someone else to go the first time, so that could have affected the results of the amount of work we got done. But, I suspect that we will get more done next time he comes over since we will probably adapt better to that sort of environment of working together. I hope that it becomes like a home to him so he will feel at home when he comes so it will be good. But he has definitely changed my taste in music as well as little inputs from other friends, but mostly him.

Saturday is the day I actually went and YES!, I did go in the mazes. I wasn't afraid! It was actually super fun, especially with my friends there with me. In the first maze, I went ahead first. Somewhere after we left the adult crowd, we went on the Supreme Scream ride, and I always think the intense butterflies make it too hard to scream! Plus, its just a waste of scream. All that really happened was mazes. The slaughterhouse was the scariest one because this monster jumped across a whole wall while scraping it with whatever was in his glove or hand and it was super loud. My friend (a guy) at some point during a maze, clung onto my other friend (a girl) off of impulse which was hilarious. it was such a great day and I think I am going to Halloween Horror nights at Universal Studios. Good times, Good times.

I'm writing this the day before I go to Knott's Scary Farm's Halloween Haunt which means I am going to go tomorrow. I think this will be the first time that I go inside a scary maze because I've never had the guts to go in, but I promised my best friend I would and plus, I am bringing to of my best school friends and brother-like friend who is in 8th grade I think. So I'm not gonna be like "Nah, you guys go in, I'm too scared" or else that would just embarrass myself and they would all probably tease me and give me crap about it the whole night. I can't wait until tomorrow, now if you will excuse me, I am tired and need to go to bed. just need to rest up for tomorrow, even though we are leaving at about 4:00pm!

I know I haven't written in awhile but that's because of the enormous amount of work that I have been getting or that has been pending. I procrastinated a Map project for History and that was a huge ordeal with me and my self esteem but that was a HUGE lesson to me of procrastinating = Horribleness. But I had pending work, that was just neglected but I had been working on it. The Map project though, was a butt-load more than I thought. Oh my gosh, it was so much. I started it the day before it was due at 10:00pm which was after my soccer game. I also worked on it the next morning, but of course, I didn't finish it, but I showed it to my teacher and he said "Take the weekend." I was so relieved and it took a lot of stress out of me. Now I had to get it done no matter what and I was working on it over the weekend, while finishing any other work because I had learned from that experience. But my weekends are always filled up, so I probably had a soccer game over that weekend, and I think my dad's fraternity meeting, which I am semi-in so my dad makes me go, but I love going because the people are just great and I like to listen to things that I most likely wont understand or that has to do with more adult things like companies and fundraiser locations and a bunch of stuff. But I like listening to it because it helps me learn about it, and throughout the years that I have been going, I am realizing that I am understanding more and more of what they are talking about. But I also did other homework while I was there, because I wouldn't take the map with me. It would have probably been destroyed. But I am adapting more to the work load and organizing things in my agenda. And I'm finally writing again, and hopefully, even though this is a chore, hopefully I can write everyday from now on.

This is an extremely catchy and clever song. It got so popular just within a week. It had I think at least 3 million youtube views, and that's before the official video came out, no the lyrics version. The video is so clever and awesome. To me it was like telling me a whole story in just about 5 minutes of music video. It covered pretty much covered his life time from a little boy to an adult. I love the way he uses the lyrics and its just a great song. Here, see and listen for yourself. Of course if you don't like profanity, then don't listen, but even if you don't, well maybe not, but its a great song. its already on the air too except their version is "Forget You". Here's the real video.
