    You ran away with your guy friend? And camped in a graveyard? And the police got involved? [Very daring, I must say. Please try to use better grammar.]

    Life; liberty; the pursuit of happiness-2

    I am in a state of slight moodyness. You know. Pre teen moid jumps. So i planned. I went all over google maps (not on a phone or computer(dont have any of that junk) but on my nook.) Planning routes. Then i chose who to take with me. My across the street neighbor, Alec. I have known him for almost 8 years now, and ttrush him with my whole heart. <p>
    Not a romantic relationship. I am a tomboy. Boys seem gross to me. Keep remembering that.<p>
    Anyway, i told him, and we planned for almost two months. This weekend were doing it. Running away from home.<br>
    We will bike 4 blocks to the graveyard, then unpack everything on our backs. Clothes, food, iron pots, tent, shoes, soap, everything! You think we could be caught really easily four blocks from home. But no. We hane a gaurntee they wont come looking for us for 3 hours. And our graveyard is almost 2 miles deep in forest. <br>
    Back to the story. So were going to go, wait 3 days, or until we hear police sirens, which ever comes last, then go home. We have 4 locations we will move backand forth between, until we feel safe. Oh. We also have pepper spray. Alec is paranoid.<br> "Some goon is going to rape you! And then i will have to explain to your parents why you went on an escapade with me and came back with a baby! I would get grounded for, like, life!" Silly kid.<br>
    Anyway, thats whats going on in my life.
