So my vacation has finally started even though I've been off of school for a month already. Friday I went to Knott's Berry Farm. I had my moments of despair, but for the most part it was really fun and nice. I would have enjoyed it 10 times more if it wasn't so incredibly hot that day. It was like 104 degrees.
Also, I had my first real encounter with Southern 'white supremisist' bastards. While on a train ride at Knotts, a two younger guys and their older sister started talking about how everything sucks and its all because the North won the civil war. Then one of the guys said, "The South actually won, its just that the North told everyone that they won." And the older sister was like "If the south would have been in power, things would have been different in this country, we would have nice clothes, good food, and Men would be Men and Women would be women. And we would be in our rightful place." When I heard her say that I was going to go ballistic. "We"?? She meant it as "us white folks". And the two other guys were like, "yeah, I wish I could see how things would have been in this country if we would have one." It wouldn't be one country you jackass. It would be two different countries. And they went on to state facts and statistics about the war that were totally wrong. I know, I'm a history major. I was so shocked listening to those people. How can people be so fucking ignorant? If they love the deep south so much, then why are you here, in California, the biggest melting pot in the world? Lame asses.
The entire week before Friday was so boring. I was going out of my mind. It also doesn't help that I hate summer time. I wish it could be Fall or Winter all year long. And I know there are places where I can move to where it is like that all year long, but I love Los Angeles too much to be able to make that big of a move. I wanted to talk to Matt, but then he wasn't home. :(
Yesterday, we went shopping and I bought the new OhGr album. I was so excited about it till I listened to it. I'm utterly disapointed. Hopefully it will grow on me or something, but as of now, it was a waste of money. And the worst thing is that I after I bought it and listened to it, I found out that someone is selling their copy of Nothing and Nowhere on Ebay. And now I have no money to buy it.
I also went to see S.W.A.T. with my brothers and my dad yesterday. I really liked it. Initially, I only wanted to see it because Michelle Rodriguez was in it, and because Samuel L. Jackson was in it, but it turned out to be a really cool action movie.
Next week we are going to the L.A. Zoo and maybe SeaWorld.
