Diary Of An Awkward Teen

This is my entry for the year-round diary competition. This is a time I don't want to forget, as high-school begins in a middle school building and adulthood is less than four years away. Besides most of the names, this is all 100 percent true.


16. December 25, 2015 (Christmas Day)

6:57 A.M.

I woke up and blinked twice before getting out of bed. I went to check the time, then saw the stockings hanging on the couch. They were definitely filled! I thought about waking Ammon, but thought better of it. Because I wanted to see what was in my stockings alongside Ammon, I waited an hour and got on Movellas in the meantime, working on this story and Top 10 Singers - The Real Thing. An hour later, I awoke Ammon.

"Santa came," I said as he rubbed his eyes.

"Can I sleep?" he replied reluctantly.

"I waited an hour with filled stockings in the other room," I said. "I was going to wake you up and watch you sleep. He also brought you Lucky Charms."

With that, he obliged and followed me into Sean's living room. Together, we emptied our stockings.

Santa had brought me two Star Wars action figures, as well as a box of sugar cereal and a heck-ton of treats, including Hershey kisses, peppermint sticks, and fruit. It took a while, but Mom and Sean finally woke up. With nothing else to wait for, we opened our presents. I got a watch of my own and a really cool Star Wars toy--a real synthetic lightsaber crystal, for which I had long known the Sith got their crystals from.

Afterwards, we all went to Sean's mother's house for Christmas dinner. It was an hour's trip, but we finally arrived and parked between two adjoining cars. Sean's friend, Debbie, came with us; we picked her up from her neighborhood and dropped her off again later. Upon arriving, I was united with several old friends. There we ate pork, mushrooms, asparagus, fruit salad, and Dutch pudding for dinner. It was delicious. Afterwards, we did an activity.

Eventually we left and, after dropping off Debbie, we went home to get our cousin's present. We arrived and were surprised to see several cousins there as well as the homeowners, Aunt Renee, Uncle George, and Reann. One of them let us borrow his plastic lightsaber and duel him briefly.

20 minutes later, we left back to Sean's house. There, I got to try some of the corn-free caramel we had made the night before before packing up my things. After making sure everything was in check, Mom drove me home. Apparently she was going to have a movie marathon and second sleepover with Sean. Ammon joined her, but the following night would sleep here as well. And on December 28, all three of us slept here.
