Broccoli and beef, spring roll, fried rice and chow mein. <- Ines
We spent early release eating outside in the beautiful sun with the cloudless skies and the delightful cool breeze, enjoying the peaceful music of Panda Express.
Answering interview questions to help Melissa with her phone interview later that day.
What would you do if you were teaching and two kids broke into an argument?
Ines: Uhhhhhhh *thinks about it for bit* I would call a sercurity guard. BUT while I wait, I would click the random dancing button under my desk that I previously installed that would play a annoying distracting song like Barbie Girl. THUS throwing off the students and momentarily ceasing the argument. Then grab one of the kids involved and pull them to the other side of the room with my super strength and calm them down. =]
Melissa: UM…Okay! Lol my answer probably wouldn’t have some snazzy high-tech button! BUT id make sure to calm them down with my soothing words. Oh yeaaah.
What motivates you?
Ines: I dont know how to word this without it sounding weird…
Melissa: Just say it!
Ines: …My future children.
Melissa: Thats not pedophilic at all! *Hey! i want kids so bad, i might just take yours!”
Ines & Melissa: LOL!!
Other questions included:
What is your greatest strength/weakness?
Tell me about yourself.
What was your greatest failure and how did you overcome it?
How would your friends describe you?
After chatting and unraveling ourselves with questions for hours, it was time to leave so that Melissa would be in a quiet environment in time for the interview. Before we left, there was one last thing we needed to do. FORTUNE COOKIES!
Ines’ -> You will soon embark on a business venture
Melissia’s -> You attract cultured and artistic people
You know what that means!
BIG THANGS POPPIN’ WITH US PAINTIN’ MURALS!!! HIT US UP! WE DO CLOSET DOORS, WALLS, CEILINGS, CARS, ETC!
So its 2:30 when we finish snacking and Ines is cooled off after her adventure (count em: THREE buses to get to Melissa’s house! AND she got off at the wrong bus stop). Melissa has already set up the paint on the left hand corner of the closet. We sit, smiles all aflutter, and then… WHAT TO DO! Pick up a pencil and GO! Melissa outlines the general idea of the center of the sunflower, Ines takes care of the petals and the rest is history :D After 5 hours of non-stop laughter, yapping about future money-making endeavors and summer hopes, dancing, singing, eatin, and thangss. Followed by two father speeches on proper quote sizes and LIFE, our masterpiece was complete. Better than we had ever imagined. Couldn’t stop smiling actually :D! Repeating what a “huge ass sunflower!” we had created. We were exhausted — FUN can do that to a person — but we felt accomplished. This day marked a lot of “firsts” for us :)
WE FINNA MAKE MADD MONEY PAINTIN MURALS! HIT US UP, WE DO BIG THANGSSS! :D!
Ines: “its so easy to get wrapped up on YouTube with your cumputer! I dont know why *lol!*”
Melissa: *LOL* Finally! You see what i go through!
Before you can know Espintana, you must first know Melissa and Ines.
Currently Listening To: Wanna be Startin’ Somethin’ by Michael Jackson
Currently Sitting: after standing for an hour painting the longest quote of life on my closet doors.
Currently thinking: Whoa. We did an amazing job on these closet doors! Wow. 0.0 BANGIN’!
“ENLIGHTENED!? I’LL SHOW YOU ENLIGHTENED!”
As previously stated my name is Melissa. I am a Junior. GOD is the center of my life, to which i owe why I am no longer co-dependent for my happiness. YouTube owns my life. Sad, but true. My current obsessions include: Giraffes, Jason Mraz live @ EBS, New Orleans, my parents, Breakthrough, my AWESOME closet doors!, and my closest friends. I was fortunate to learn a lesson on friends towards the end of sophomore year, which is why i only consider verrrryyyy few people my FRIENDS. Ines is one of these “verrrryyyy few people.”
Though i haven’t been FRIENDS with Ines for the longest, i truly feel like I’ve knows her foreverrrr. Almost as if during Bottle Baby she actually became a sister to me, one that isn’t a closet alcoholic :) We make a good team. A superior team :D Whether we are in complete silence or yapping away, its comfortable.
Currently Listening To: Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry
Currently sitting: in melissa’s big comfy office chair
Currently thinking: about what to write in this intro
“Gahhhhh! I’m just gonna jump into it!”
I’m 16 and I cant wait to graduate. Actually, i think i can since i have no idea what i want to do with the rest of my life. Luckily my life has been peachy keen lately. Well, more peechier and keenier than usual. My grades are looking good and I’m getting oh so close to straight A’s, I’m doing junior thangs and taking the SAT’s reallyyyy soon, drama is fun again, my boyfriend of almost a year is amazing, and my friends are awesome. Thats where melissa comes in!
Before i got close to Melissa she was just a beam kid. But through a superior winning duet acting piece we got closer and now she is part of the awesomenessousity in my life. I’m so happy i found someone like her at this point cos I was seriously about to give up on friendships. Every time I’m with her it feels like I’m on vacation. SHE MAH BABYYY!! =D
