Friends vs. Aquaintances

So, I use to say in high school I have 1.5 friends, and everyone else was just aquaintances. This may still be true, but I write this as I realize I have aquaintances and I'm really bad at saying no. I hang out with this group of people I met through a rather odd set of circumstances, but it's not like the group of people I would have picked. They like going to the club on Saturday nights, and I just haven't been having a good time. I like going every now and then, but they just play dance mixes of popular songs, and that's not the kind of music I want to hear at a club. (I'd perfer techno since any guy can dance to it.) They're also cocaine users. Not that this is horrible, as they're cocaine usage hasn't seemed to made them evil - i.e. they're not coke fiends.

As stated previously though, I just can't say no when they ask to do things. Like last night, I think I would have much perferred going to the Mudhouse and chilling, but that didn't happen. They're just not into the low key things like coffee houses or sitting around and talking like I am . . .

My car has all these little dings, and one big dent (see previous entry) :( It seems people keep dinging it. Yesterday I noticed a new one on the front passenger side door. It's odd as it looks like someone hit it with a spike or something, as it's just one point. It's also obvious that whoever did it, rubbed it, and tried to see if there was a mark or not, as my car is somewhat dirty, and it's clean where they wiped it off to see if they damaged it. My car is getting so beat up, and it's only a three years old. :( It also pisses me off how all these people (or maybe just one person) is screwing my car up, and thinking that it's minor enough not to deal with it. Actually, the dings don't bother me so much, it's just the big driver's side dent . . . I hope the bastard who did that rots . . .

Wow, I'm posting lots of entries right now . . . just read this over on Arstechnica. To summarize, there's this video of a teen who does some playing around with a broomstick like it's a lightsaber, and apparently he had to get some pscychiatric care for the embarassment he suffered. His parents are suing the other four teens who leaked the digital video. Crazy stuff. The poster over on Arstechnica does mention that this really is no different than standard teen behavior (embarassing others). The big difference though is that it wasn't just in front of the kids at school, this video has been seen worldwide, due to the Internet . . . amazing how it has changed things . . .
