Yesterday was the graduation for 2004. Today is approximately one year since I graduated. How I already feel so old. So I went to the graduation, and as much as I love my 12th grade English teacher, her 50 minutes speech, recognising each individual graduates, was far damn too long. I was sitting on the bleachers, the graduation was in the SAHS gym, and my butt was in pain afterwards. It was a nice graduation despite that though. The only sucky thing was that I was unable to get any flowers for any of my friends. I feel so damn bad. Stupid flower shops not opening early or saying they will open which they don’t.
Then I went to Starbucks, study a bit, hung out at the band room, and met Jeff. I’ve had a stressful week. I screamed my ass off at No Rae Bang (Karaoke), and I felt so much better.
I got home at ten, and then another friend of mine named Tina wanted me to chill with her. She graduated as well, so it was graduation party time. But due to reasons she couldn’t meet her other friends, therefore she called me up.
During my walk through Itaewon to meet her, I had a new identity. I was Caren, had a boyfriend, had an entirely different cell phone number, said I spoke no Korean; only English, and was 20 years old instead of 19. The reason for that was because there was this erm… Korean guy in his 30s hitting on me. I could tell he wanted me for sex, so I told him all these incorrect facts about myself! But ew, he was touchy to me. He wanted to meet me in the future and “improve” his English skills. I hope I never see him again.
Tina and I chilled out at a cafe named Chocolate. I didn’t get home till 2 in the morning. That was the latest I stayed out since New Year’s Eve. Yowza. It was fun just talking with her. I’ll miss her when she goes off to college. I’ll miss a lot of my ’04 friends going to the states. *sighs* Things change too much and too soon for me. Oh well… but that was my day. Yesterday was the only day I enjoyed this entire week.
