OMG! im so bored please talk 2 me!

July 29th, 2008 12:15pm
y am i bored? well im sitting in a tiny car with my mom, my dad, my twerp of a brother derek, my aunt susan, my uncle sean, my crying baby cousin asia and my fighting twin cousins josh and james.

July 29th, 2008 12:17pm
im all alone with no1 my age and totally dreading the next 2 hour trip 2 the airport and the 11 hour plane trip 2 England.

July 29th, 2008 12:19pm
well, maybe the plane trip wont b too bad, i get 2 sit in a window seat on virgin atlantic and i hear they have this little screen with music, tv shows, games and movies 4 people 2 use!!

July 29th, 2008 12:21pm
im going on this trip cause my parents want 2 go on a family vacation 2 c our grandparents.

July 29th, 2008 12:24pm
well of course i told them i didnt want 2 go, but u know my parents, they wudnt listen. my grandparents r so boring all they do is talk about "back in the day," sit around and make gross old people food.

July 29th, 2008 12:27pm
i know lily, im lucky 2 b going on this trip and all, but i kinda wish i at least had som1 my age 2 talk 2 while im there.

July 29th, 2008 12:30pm
i cant text u while im over there, theres an 8 hour time difference.

July 29th, 2008 12:33pm
yes u were being stupid. OMG!! people wont shut up in this stupid car!! i can barely think!! anyway enough about me whats up with u?? how was ur soccer game yesterday??

…Two Hours Later…

July 29th, 2008 2:15pm
WOW! this airport is huge, there r all these roads twisting around bringing us 2 the car park and there r like a million giant windows and tons of run ways and in the past few minutes ive seen like a thousand planes in the air!

July 29th, 2008 2:17pm
well i cant tell u what its like inside yet. were only at the car park, were parking on the roof in section e. u know those cloud line things that come out of planes somtimes?? u probably do…well there r so many of those in the sky right now.

July 29th, 2008 2:21pm
sry, i didnt mean 4 u 2 feel stupid because i asked u that question. anyway im inside now and it looks so much larger than it did from the outside, it's unbelievable! all the windows i saw show u the airport from a different view and out of a lot of them u can c all the planes!!!

July 29th, 2008 2:23pm
and there r like these giant colorful pieces of glass on the roof were we give our luggage 2 the flight attendants. but there is also a huge line! its going 2 take 4ever 2 get anywhere!

July 29th, 2008 2:25pm
i know, i know i shud b patient.

July 29th, 2008 2:28pm
hows the family?! well now that u ask… WORSE THAN EVER!! no1 can keep quiet; the baby is still crying, the boys r jumping and running around crazy excited, the adults r too "jazzed" (their words) 2 notice anything and im leaning on a pole, with my bags, waiting 4 this line 2 move 4ward som more.

July 29th, 2008 2:34pm
i am excited, jeez. its just everything takes so long, the website is right its wise 2 get 2 the airport early

July 29th, 2008 2:36pm
no1 is listening 2 me or my opinion on anything, like if we shud eat b4. my thought is yes definitely i hear airplane food is disgusting

July 29th, 2008 2:38pm
omg the boys keep running up 2 me and pulling on my brand new shirt and asking why im not excited and y i keep having my phone out! they refuse 2 shut up even 4 1 minute!

July 29th, 2008 2:41pm
i know, i know b "jazzed" lol. but u wud probably feel the same if u were in my shoes. speaking of shoes i still have urs from that time u slept over

July 29th, 2008 2:45pm
finally out of the line! now that i can look at more of this place it kind of reminds me of a giant mall with very high security. there r tons of little shops 4 tourists and 4 food and stuff. behind the place were they check ur passport i can c a little make up shop, cant wait 2 go there. omg that reminds me, did i tell u about the money i get??

July 29th, 2008 2:47pm
really?? i didnt?? i cant believe it i thought i told every1… but dont b offended i didnt tell u i probably just got so excited i 4got who i had and hadnt told.

July 29th, 2008 2:49pm
oh right, i 4got 2 tell u about the money… again, lol. well its really cool, since my parents feel guilty i dont have any1 2 talk 2 while im there, they gave me a TON of money. i have $500 2 spend while im there, even though in England that's only about 250 pounds (money has different values)

July 29th, 2008 2:54pm
NO!! of course they didnt give me all that money, the money includes som of my savings from my birthday and holidays and stuff.

July 29th, 2008 2:57pm
well obviously i cant wait 2 spend it! speaking of spending it i think im going 2 go get som coffee. i know im a caffeine-aholic.

July 29th, 2008 3:05pm
ok ive gotten my coffee and ive gone back 2 where my family shud b waiting… but there gone!!! i cant c them anywhere!! idk what 2 do!! i got 2 go but ill ttyl and tell u what happened, bye!!

July 29th, 2008 4:55pm

July 29th, 2008 4:59pm

July 29th, 2008 5:03pm

July 29th, 2008 5:08pm
omg ur so right, ive been so confused about what 2 do, i didnt even think 2 talk 2 the security.

July 29th, 2008 5:17pm
i talked 2 them but they thought i was just playing a practical joke. i cant believe they didn't believe me, shudnt they take all problems like this seriously?!?!?!

July 29th, 2008 5:21pm
omg i cant believe it my mom has finally replied give me a long while 2 figure out what im gonna do, then ill tell u whats going on!!

July 29th, 2008 5:30pm
MOM!!! i cant believe u left ur cell phone in ur bag on silent after going through passport/baggage checking!! i cant believe u have already boarded the plane and been sitting on it for 20 minutes and r just thinking 2 check on me now!! i cant believe they r about 2 take off and cant let u off and i am still sitting by the security office waiting 4 u with not enough time 2 get 2 the plane!! and i can NOT believe i am stuck in california with no where 2 go and no 1 2 go 2 and u r about 2 take off on a nice 2 week trip 2 England!!! WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED 2 DO AND DON'T U DARE SAY "I DON'T KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

July 29th, 2008 5:34pm
dont “oh im so sry mae” me! i know im 15 and i know 1 of my strengths is responsibility but thats no excuse 4 4getting about me!!

July 29th, 2008 5:36pm
how do u mix up “im going 2 go get coffee” with “go on without me, c ya latr!!!”

July 29th, 2008 5:38pm
i understand ur very sry but that doesn’t get me unstuck!! what am i going 2 do!!

July 29th, 2008 5:42pm
well me being the practical 1 in this situation, there is only 2 choices, either i wait in this airport 4 another flight OR i go home and take care of myself with the money i cud have used on vac 4 the 2 weeks ur gone

July 29th, 2008 5:45pm
im not deciding u r

July 29th, 2008 5:48pm
mom im 15 and can take care of myself, u dont need 2 worry. Just decide whether u want me on vac with u and dont mind paying 4 another flight, or if u want 2 just let me go home and chill with my friends

July 29th, 2008 5:53pm
idc whatever u want there r pros and cons 4 both decisions

July 29th, 2008 5:55pm
texting out a list wud take 4ever

July 29th, 2008 5:59pm
fine!! but only cause im a really fast texter!

July 29th, 2008 6:04pm
pros 4 england: its a vac, nice 2 c relatives, change in scenery, dont go often, new experiences. cons 4 england: no1 2 talk 2, grandparents boring, relatives expect perfection, miss friends, in an unknown airport on my own

July 29th, 2008 6:08pm
pros 4 home: friends, peace and quiet, comfort zone, people 2 talk 2, known area 4 me. cons 4 home; alone, a bit scary, nothing new, normal, unexciting.

July 29th, 2008 6:12pm
i know its an even number 4 both pros and cons, thats y i wanted u 2 decide

July 29th, 2008 6:14pm
kk, thats ur decision ill c ya soonish

July 29th, 2008 6:19pm
hey lily, so im gonna have 2 wait 4 a day at this place so sucks

July 29th, 2008 6:21pm
well course im happy i still get 2 go 2 england but a day in this place alone

July 29th, 2008 6:25pm
im sooo scared but im hoping i can handle it

July 29th, 2008 6:28pm
yeah anyway just tell me whats going on with u 2 get my mind off this loneliness

…12 Hours Later…

July 30th, 2008 6:16am

July 30th, 2008 6:23pm

July 30th, 2008 6:27pm
so then they were taking me sumwhere and i said i needed 2 go 2 the bathroom and it had 2 doors so i ran out the other and went 2 get a taxi

July 30th, 2008 6:30pm

July 30th, 2008 6:36pm
i didnt stay with them because they didnt even look like the right security and i wasnt sure they were 4 real u kno i was totally scared and freaked

July 30th, 2008 6:39pm

AHAHAHAHAHAHA That was so funny! At first I wasn't crazy about the whole texting thing but by the end I loved it! So creative, bravo!

Could you possibly read my story and tell me what you think? Thanks a bunch!
