I'm gonna miss you, summer.

This summer has been basically the greatest time of my life. Thank you to everyone who made it so amazing. i.e all my friends who make my life the roller-coaster that it is, i love you all. High school starts tomorrow, and I'm f%$king terrified. But life goes on, and I'll survive. But my lesbian haircut isn't gonna help.
I'm gonna miss running into Scottie at Target =[

this magical place called...

The square.
Really not too magical.
But, it depends on who's there with you. Today, for instance, I was lucky enough to be joined by Kate! She's leaving for Ohio tomorrow, so I wanted to see her before she left. I got there around 3, met her at her mother's bookstore, and we were off into the blistering heat.
The heat was fails. All my shorts were dirty from Chicago, so i had to wear jeans. Not cool. We spent an hour at starbucks, messing around on our Zunes, then we returned to the bookstore to check in. Afterward, we walked to Target and got icees! I bought some superfly shades, and I saw a hot vest. Then I ran into my good friend Scott, who preoceded to scare the crap out of Kate by telling me that I was attractive. He was not incorrect.
After all those shenanigans, we went back behind the bookstore and sat in the grass under some trees. After failing to call my mother to pick me up on my stupd phone, I used the phone in the store to call her. Kates mother was nice enough to drive me to the movie theater, where my mom picked me up.
I'm gonna miss Kate, dude.

Last week, my family and I went to Chicago for some doctor meeting thing my mom had to go to.
The following is my sloppy recollection of that trip.

Things I Wanted To Do In Chigago:
1) ride a Segway. (did it.)
2) visit the Clandestine Industries factory store
3) go to Six Flags
4) see the Dark Knight in IMAX
5) go to Urban Outfitters
6) buy Andy Warhol poster
7) see Nine Inch Nails at Lollapalooza

One out of seven.
Way to go, mom.

My trip consisted of countless HORRIBLY dull museums, embarrasing tours, and wishing i could go to Lollapalooza.
On the third night, however, we took the train (crazy) to another town for a concert of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra playing the music of John Williams.
(he wrote the music for the harry potter movies, the indiana jones moves, E.T, sta wars, and probably more) That was prertty fun.

Basically the highlight of my trip was when we rented Segways.
Segways are these crazy, 2-wheeled scooters that you move by shifting your weight to your toes to go forward, and your heels to stop.
We rode them through the town and got laughed at by locals, but I didn't care because it was crazy fun. At a whopping speed of 12.5 miles an hour, these babies are nothing to mess with.
