fair, skate, beach

Pretty long and tiring weekend.

Friday..

On Friday I went to school like usual then went home. I didn’t do any community service today and decided to hangout at home instead. I was choosing whether or not I should go to the fair or not but I decided to go. I got a ride around 7 and met up with my friend Chad. Chad is a friend of mine from Water polo. We walked around for a bit and met up with Haley and her friends. Chad left around 9 so I sticked with Haley and her friends. My friend Rosy gave me some tickets so I decided to go on a ride. The ride was pretty fun but the line was way too long.

at the fair

I got tired of walking so I sat down in the grass for a while.

I went home around 10:30 and went straight to bed because I was exhausted.

Saturday..

Today I’m hanging out with my buddies Tanner and Jorge. I got a ride to the skatepark around 2 and met up with them. It was way too hot to skate so we biked up to Tanners house and watched some tv. We went over to Sofia’s house and hung out there for a while. We biked back to Tanner’s and decided to skate since it cooled down a bit.

Jorge got a burrito first then we skated around till it got dark. That night we didn’t do much and we were all pretty tired. We watched some TV and hung out for a while then decided to go to bed early.

Sunday..

I woke up around 7:30 and Jorge was already awake. Since Tanner sleeps in till around 10, we decided to bike and get some breakfast. We biked towards the beach but didn’t have a place in mind so we turned around and got some donuts at Ellers. It was pretty good. After we biked over to this mexican restaraunt and got some food. The restaraunt was called La Colmena.

breakfast with jorge

By the time we got back to Tanner’s he was already awake. We sat around for a while and then decided to go to the beach. We biked down to Sandspit and laid down.

Jorge and I decided to bike back to Goleta.

This was pretty much my whole weekend. Comment below if you went to the fair.

Spring break is pretty good, except I’ve been pretty sick the whole time

Saturday..

First day of spring break.

Today I woke around 6:30 and made some breakfast and walked the dog. Then I got dropped off at the beach to play some beach volley ball with Charlie, Christian and some other friends.

I’ve never really played volleyball before so it was a little nerve racking but everyone was friendly so everything was cool. I kinda got the hang of it after a while and played a couple matches.

It was really hot and I got sunburnt pretty bad.

After volleyball Chase, Charlie, Christian, Jack and I all went to the Habit and got some food. We were all pretty tired.

Jack got picked up and the rest of us drove over to the skatepark. The skatepark got boring really quick so we all decided to just walk around on the beach.

Charlie and Chase decided to go to Sam’s house but I was pretty tired so I decided to take the bus home.

Sunday..

I am sore.

I went to the skatepark. For some reason I skate really well when I’m sore. I don’t know why.

I met up with my friends Tiger and Christian.

Tiger is really good at transition skating. He is also really nice.

We tried airing over this gap called the channel gap witch is a gap that goes from the bowl to the quarter pipe. But it is hard because we have to clear a 5 ft gap.

We tried for about 30 minutes but never landed it.

I got picked up around 5:00 by my dad and went home.

Monday..

I don’t feel like skating today.

My dad and I went to go walk our dog. We took our dog the a park near by and hung out there for a while.

We spent about an hour there then walked back home. Then went to In n Out to get some lunch. I was hungrier than usual so I got a double double.

After that we went to Carp to go pick up some of our stuff from our family friend’s house. They have an extra storage area so we keep some of our stuff in there.

We found some old records and some cool vintage clothes.

Overall a pretty good day.

Tuesday-Thursday

Mostly skateboarding and hanging out with some friends.

Did some drawings, heres one.

just another drawing

My spring break is not too exciting but it is very relaxing.

Comment below what you guys are doing for spring break.

Feels like Summer

Friday..

Today I went to school like usual then had swim practice after. Today’s swim practice was pretty easy and fun. After practice, I got picked up and went home. I made a sandwhich and sat down for a while.

About 30 minutes later, I went to do some community service. For community service, I help teach Japanese at a church.

After community service, I went home and hung out in my backyard with my dog.

kai

Later that night we had curry. Comment below if you like curry.

Overall it was a pretty mellow day.

Saturday..

I woke up feeling good today. I wasn’t tired nor sleepy and I got up quickly. It was warm and sunny outside and felt kinda like summer.

I made a smoothie with strawberries, bananas, orange juice, almond milk, honey, pinneaples, spinach and kale. I drank that and watched some adventure time and listened to music.

I got a ride to the skatepark around 12pm and met up with my friends, Kai, Ben, Oli, Tanner and Owen. It was kind of a crappy skate day because I haven’t skated for a week. I haven’t been skating as much as I used to in 9th grade because I joined club waterpolo and swim team.

We skated for a while and also played a group game of s.k.a.t.e. For those of you who do not know what s.k.a.t.e is, it is kind of like the game P.I.G in basketball where one person sets a trick and the rest of the people have to do the same thing or they get a letter. And first one to spell out s.k.a.t.e loses. Kai and I were the judges, but soon we all got too hot so we decided to jump in the ocean. The ocean was really nice and it remembered me of summer when I would spend all day at the skatepark then jump in the ocean when I got hot.

After the beach we walked back to the skatepark but we were all too tired to skate so we just sat out side the skatepark and hung out. I decided that I was too tired to do anything so I hopped on the bus and went home.

I had some pasta and watched View from a Blue Moon.

It’s a really good video if you guys haven’t see it yet.

Sunday..

I woke up to a call from Jorge around 8.

He asked me to hangout so I met up with him at the skatepark.

But he left 5 minutes after I got to the skatepark.

Whatever..¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I got home my dad gave me a record he found at the flea market.

Monday..

The time change is killing me.. waking up was awful

 

This week I’m going to Kings Canyon, I will post about it next week.

new friends and asian tourists

This weekend I was a little sick. I’m still kinda sick. It sucks. I’ve been tired since Mexico and never got the chance to rest since we had school the day after we got back.

Friday..

On Friday I just went to school and did some community service after school. Later, Josh showed me a website where you can watch Netflix with friends at the same time, while having a group chat going on next to it. My friends and I decided to watch the episode “Shut up and Dance” from the show Black Mirror. I definitely recommend watching that show if you are a fan of The Twilight Zone.

Saturday..

I had a slow morning on Saturday. I woke up around 8 and layed in bed and watched Netflix. I started a new show called Louie, it’s pretty funny.

I got out of bed around 9 and made some breakfast.

Around noon, I went to the skatepark and hung out with some friends. I was still a little sick so I didn’t skate much. After about an hour, we all got hungry so we went to Mony’s and got some tacos.

 Around 4, I met up with other friends and hung out on the beach. I started hanging out with these friends in Mexico. After sitting on the beach for a while, Brianna, Kyelee, Josh, Quinn and I went to the pier.

Josh and I jumped off the pier, the water was really cold. Definitely regret jumping, I got even more sick.

While we were jumping, a lot of random people came to watch. An asian tourist screamed every time I jumped, which was pretty funny. Later on, she almost fell off the pier.

After jumping, we decided to walk back to the beach and get some food. We ordered pizza and watched the sunset. We played some music and found out that Elianna listens to weird music.

Around 6:30 we ran out of pizza and got really bored so decided to walk around downtown.

I got picked up around 8:30 and went home. It was a fun day. We are all planning on going hiking next week. Comment below if you recommend any good hiking spots in Santa Barbara… Later that night, I got a really bad sore throat. It sucked.

Sunday..

On Sunday I didn’t do much. I was suppose to go to the Rincon Classics and hang out with some friends but didn’t have a ride and was also really tired.

Instead, my dad and I decided to go get some food at Super Cuca’s. It’s been a little over a week since we got back from Mexico and I feel like I can finally eat some Mexican food without being sick of it.

Later that day, I went home and finished up some weekend homework and watched a couple more episodes of Louie.
