Daily Journal: Posting Everyday.. Surviving School
Listen to me rant on life, and improve social skills. Must survive school even if it kills me.
A Fourth of July in Jacksonville Beach
So this morning I sped threw my daily math. Writing this whole day up, I feel like that was eon's ago.
At 1pm we drove down to Jacksonville Beach. Truthfully we were only on the beach at one point, and we didn't go swimming at all. We mostly hung out in my cousin John's condo. When we got there, it was already packed for Fourth of July parties. Bikers were everywhere, more then usual!
We walked down to the festival to see what was going on. I had a funnel cake (yum) and listen to some weird couple play music. They weren't bad, but I would not pick them over anything [besides country].
When we got back, it was already around 4pm. Uncle Tony and Ant Laura started making burgers and hot dogs for dinner. The burger was really good! Right when I was done eating, my cousins Mara, Sean; Ant Vicky, Oma, and Opa walked in. Mara showed me some of her newest drawings (Damon of course!), while me and Sean later went to play some Animal Crossing.
I am seriously addicted to that game... o_o
I got to do sprinklers for the first time! I grew up in a state were Fireworks are illegal, so sprinklers were hard to come by as a child. I actually once got to see fireworks in my neighbors backyard, but he's a cop - he probably you know, did "stuff" =P
Oma brought the sprinklers. It was actually really fun - I got to do something I had only seen in Anime [which is sad]. John did not partake. Secretly, I think he wanted to, but did not want to act childish. His decision - he had never done them either truthfully. It was fun lighting them up with Mara, Sean, and my siblings. They actually almost didn't light (bad matches, Uncle Tony got one to start). We brought some home to use later!
Mara and Sean went back to Oma's. There only here for today. I'll get to see them (and have a sleep over) never week when they come back from their vacation.
Around 8:30 we went down to the beach to watch the fireworks. Man was the beach crowded! It was a fun scene - people everywhere, just lighting things off and having fun. The fireworks were pretty good. I don't mean that in a "beautiful" standpoint (fireworks are pretty cased closed), but they were choreographed nicely.
We didn't actually leave until 10:30, and got home around 11:20. Are dogs were so happy to see us! Jerry was out of his crate, my dad loves to leave the door unlocked and see if Jerry will open it.
Since then, all ive done is turn my computer on, look at Tumblr, and watch the opening to an anime. It's 1am so I should probably wrap this up. Caitlin might sleep over tomorrow, who knows.
No, I will not watch Free! btw.
