|3 Days of Pie
Last year 8th grade was great.
I had real friends.
Life was great.
Come June, I decided to watch "American Pie" for the first time.
I may have been a 14 year old boy.
But I saw past the ridiculous sexual humor.
And saw how great high school could be.
Maybe I didn't want to be Stifler or Finch.
But I wanted to love high school.
After the credits starting rolling on the first, I decided to watch the second.
The next day, I watched American Pie 2.
There was something about it.
It made me want to have the best summer ever.
Live life to the fullest.
Something I had slowly began to do.
The next day, I rounded out with American Wedding before the last day of 8th grade.
Sure, it wasn't the same.
But it wasn't different either.
I knew that life needs to be lived.
And if you don't, it would just pass you by.
1 year later things are different.
I still have friends.
I still have fun.
But my grades suck.
I'm getting in trouble.
And nothing has gotten better.
Now as I finish freshman year, I know what needs to change.
What I can do to make things better.
And how I can succeed with 3 days left.
I just have to finish it the right way.
With 3 Days of Pie.
Watch the 3 movies that I will always remember 8th grade by.
But not with the hope of nostalgia.
But with the hope that what those movies tought me will follow me.
And that I will successfully stay a sober virgin so I can make my own journey.
Yeah, I'm a whiny 15 year old.
|I like a girl.|
Really really like her.
She doesn't like me.
We were never really friends.
Really just friends of friends.
But friendly enough where we could sit at the same lunch table.
We talk about a lot of things.
She laughs at what I say.
I laugh at what she says.
Things are nice.
I like her to the point where I can't talk to her.
Where I don't want to talk to her.
Because I know I'll mess something up.
I don't think we would go out if we had the chance.
I don't think I'd want us to go out.
Things would get complicated after we break up.
But things are weird now.
Remember how I said I screw up talking to her?
I occasionally talk about how we could go out.
And don't make a smooth recovery back to normal conversation.
I just want one thing to happen.
I don't care if we don't go out.
I mean I never did.
Let's just stay friends for a while.
Joke around a lot.
Make things not weird.
Because I can't stop thinking about her.
|Think of this as that basement show where you fall in love with the band.|
I'm Bengali. I'm Muslim.
I waste my time doing nothing.
I spend my time doing something.
But really nothing.
I listen to a lot of music.
Watch a lot of TV.
Do schoolwork way to quickly.
And screw up on in 9 times out of 10
Surprising myself occasionally.
I don't do drugs.
Nor will I ever.
I consider myself stress free.
Others call me apathetic.
I'm like a sitcom character.
Easy to talk to.
It's easy to get to know me. So let's start.
