When it comes to crushes and "likes," I don't remember a time when I was not literally crushed. (-_-)

Day 1 of Liking "Him"

I told my BFF about "him" and for some reason, she thought it funny. Later that day, I got hit in the face with a ball during gym class. Sooo embarrassing. "He" helped me up and said, "Are you say okay?" I tried to hide my blush and humilation. Did he think I was weak?

 

Day 2 of Liking "Him"

My BFF betrayed me and told "him." I said, "Don't listen to her!" He said, "I thought it was a joke, but now that you said that, I know it's true!" My life sucks. I hate myself for doing that...

 

Day 3 of Liking "Him"

I sat at the seat next to "him" and pretended that it was a conicedence and that I did NOT sit there just to think about "him." He's so funny, nice, and smart--It makes sense that I like "him." He caught me staring. Embarrassment alert! The next year went the same way...

 

A YEAR LATER, I AM STILL LIKING "him"

I found a new crush, too, let's call him E. I'll call my first crush D.

Anyway, I met E and after three months of knowing him, realized that he was pretty smart, funny, and nice...and that I kind of had a crush on him. I haven't told him yet, I'm afraid to...He's always surrounded by girls anyway. Like I have a chance! I'm no even naturally attractive!

As for D, just as awkward as ever. I lied to my friends and said that I didn't like him anymore. They believed me. I'll never stop feeling guilty about that huge lie.

 

TODAY, I still like "him" (April 14th, 2015)

We had testing today. D and E are both not in my class, though I wish they were. Snacks for the test were on sale this morning, but I didn't bring money. Maybe I will tomorrow. I dunno.

I wonder if D or E likes me back...probably not. I'm the smartest girl in the fifth grade, but that's really the only good thing about me. My personality is average, I can be nice but I also can be mean. I'm too normal. I'm not special. Of course no one likes me! I don't mind much, though...I have friends, plenty of them! Just 'cuz I'm not popular with the boys doesn't mean I'm a loser, you know...

As I was saying, the test was easy.

 

Author's Note: I guess all of these things make me sound crush-obsessed, but I'm really not...all of the days I talked about had other details, I just narrowed it down to the events that were somewhat crush related. I'm not an idiot. I don't waste my days away thinking about foolish romance that's probably hopeless for someone like me. Gimme a break!
