I'm trying to catch up on my blogging again :D (Yay for retarded smiley faces!)
I was thinking about school, and about my friends, and crap like that, when my thoughts landed on one particular kid. His name is Leonard (pronounced LEE-YO-NARD), he's a bit taller than me, he kind of reminds me of a bird, and, OH YEAH, he's German.
If he was from Canada, he probably wouldn't be NEARLY as intriguing.
The first time he talked to me was in PLV class (or, gym for fat kids). He had no idea what was going on- it was, in fact, dodgeball- and asked me "Is the game over?" I thought he was French and a little bit weird, and just said "Dunno." and scooted away.
Then he started getting friendly with one of my good buddies Cameron, and after a while, he started hanging out with our little PLV circle. I didn't mind, because during that little transition time, he became rather fascinating to me. I didn't have a CRUSH on him, or anything trivial like that, I just had the urge to talk to him and listen to his awesome European accent.
Alright, alright, I admit, after a while I started to kind of like him a bit. But I'm a teenage girl. What can you honestly expect? A new guy is thrown in front of my face and you expect me to ignore it? It's in my inner workings to be interested in every non-ucky male specimen.
And then something funny happened.
Out of the blue, he just stopped hanging out with us, stopped talking to me and my friends (except Shawn, but he talks to EVERYONE) and started hanging out with the thugs and the hooligans, as I call them.
That was kind of a funny sight though. Seven kids with their pants around their ankles swearing and rapping, and then some lanky German kid in a polo shirt.
Well, not that kind of thug. But that would be kind of funny. It was more like the kids who are a bit stupid and that don't do well in school, and that curse a lot.
I TRIED to talk to him again. I said hello nearly every day. He just said "Hey," and dismissed me.
And it confused the hell out of me. I was used to coming into class everyday and getting a "Vassup" from Leonard. My other friends in our little circle noticed it to.
It wasn't like we were mean or unwelcoming. We liked him, we joked with him, we were friends.
And then he left.
I have a feeling Germans are very mysterious.
Leonard is also good friends with a friend of mine, Lindsay. One time at lunch I was talking to Lindsay and he came up and said "Hey." Lindsay said hi. But when I said hello, he gave me a funny look and walked away. A few months ago he would've poked me in the stomach and complained that he was tired. But not anymore.
URGH. This kid just exasperates me. I can't figure him out.
The thing is, it's not even Leonard himself. It's me. I can't figure out what I might have done to piss him off?
I can only think of one occasion. I was making my way out of the building after school and I was talking with my buddy Dylan, from PLV. We were talking about Leonard. Dylan said people call him 'Leo.' I said, probably louder than I should have, "Ew, I hate Leo."
I meant I hate the nickname Leo. Who doesn't? It sounds like a name for a gay lion.
I suppose Leonard was right behind me and heard, and possibly thought I meant I hate him. But when I got outside I saw him and say"Hey, man." and he smiled, so I have a feeling that couldn't be it.
You have no idea how simple the teenage brain is. Little trivial matters such as this drive you mad. Be glad that your an adult if you are, so you can escape this stupidity. I KNOW it's stupid, I juts can't help it.
The last time I talked to him, I tryed to make small talk. Didn't work. He looked kind of annoyed. Or bored. Or both? I wouldn't know.
That was like, over a month ago.
I'm kind of wary about trying to make conversation now. I don't like to annoy people.
Once Christmas break is over, I might try again. Until then, I can only wonder and be annoyed of the fact that I have NO idea what's going on.
Maybe my fascination is just getting to me.
