How I Became a Famous Pickup Artist : Part 1

As far as I was concerned, she was perfect. She was at least as smart as I was, was a dancer and had the body to prove it, and had a smile that could disarm the national guard. Let's call her Julie.

So, like an earthworm stalking it's prey, I put my usual game on her. Since my last flowchart was so popular, I've made another one to show you how I dealt with the ladies back then:

Nedless to say, things went slowly. We hung out nearly every day for the last couple months of our Senior year summer vacation. Like many guys, I was totally oblivious to her attraction for me. One morning Julie came over really early while I was still sleeping, and squeezed into my twin bed with me. I woke up, and assumed that she must be tired - it didn't even occur to me that she might like me. Finally on the last week of that vacation she said to me,

My first school day was almost like a movie

On Julia's life

When I got here, I didn't really know what to expect. As a kid I watched a lot of movies about high schools and I remember thinking my Dutch school would be just like that. It turned out to be very different but I didn't mind.

Now I'm going to a high school here in the United States. I thought back on how high schools were in the movies. I got very scared when I remember how those schools where. It looked like a lot of fun, but it also looked very scary. So many different people, different classes, different language. Everything would be different. I just did not know what to expect. I was very happy that my two cousins also went to the same school. It made it a little bit better knowing I would not be completely alone.

The first big difference is how I'm getting to school. No more bicycle! My 16 yr old cousin has a car and she is kind enough to pick me up. I'm lucky, most kids have to take the big yellow school buses. Seeing all the students entering the school building on the first day looked like a movie scene to me. The only thing missing was the cute guy that would bump into me in the hall, haha, just kidding. It really looked like a movie when I got my locker. It was huge. My old locker was very small, and I only saw those big lockers in the movies.

The first day went very well. The only thing I did not like was lunch. I felt like the new girl you see in the movies. Awkwardly walking in the cafeteria looking for a place to sit, not knowing anyone. Finally some nice girls let me join their table. Lunch is still my least favorite thing on school. Everyone I know from classes has a different lunch break than me, but it is okay.
