A Boy of Summer

Yes, stole the title from an article referred to me by a commenter. Thanks! I haven't had a chance to read over everything but it seems really interesting. Thanks for taking the time to comment B. Dix :)

So the summer has begun for me since I am a senior and I get out a few weeks ahead of everyone else. Oh, and yes I have turned 18 recently so I will update that as well. I'm going to address a few things in this entry but I'll start with the normal and give you a Mikey update.

I'm still working with him in the video group. It has allowed us to get to know each other very well and I'm happy that our friendship can continue throughout the summer. I even got him to sign my yearbook:

Haha, just thought I would share that. I have thought about going to his picture in it and highlighting his name or something to remind myself in the future of him. Not like I could ever forget.

The mood that he was in according to the last entry was gone the next day, and so was mine. He was back to his usual self.

He mentioned last week that I was "too cool to be gay". At the time I wasn't too sure what he meant by that, but now I know he was just saying I don't act "gay". This carried on into yesterday.

Thursday night he was asking me how to make a YouTube background for our channel, so I tried my best to help him out through texts, which didn't work very well. He ended up getting frustrated and asked if I could come over tomorrow (Friday) to help him with it. I obviously said yes. Me, him, alone at his house.... HELLO??

So I got to school about 10 minutes before it let out and he was already waiting for me to pick him up. It was pouring down raining and he was soaked. When he got in the car he stared at me, smiling, with water running down his face. It was the cutest thing ever. Anyways, we talked about his day on the way to his house, then used team effort to get all of his stuff out of my car and inside without getting very wet. Then we stood outside for like 3 minutes while he tried unlocking the door with a bent key. Normally I would be mad about getting soaked but it was worth it just to hear his laugh the whole time.

When we got inside we took our shoes off and went into his room to put his stuff up and get the laptop. Then we began working on the background. After that, we watched a few YouTube videos and then he said to me...

"You're not gay."

At first I was a little embarrassed that he brought this up (remember, I'm not totally out about it and don't usually talk about it much in person). Anyways, I asked why, and he went on to say "You don't act gay, I think you're making it up". He said all this in joking of course, but I wanted to keep it going so I said "prove that I'm not gay". He paused for a second, then said "I know how you can prove it... wait... nevermind.... it will make me sound gay if I say it". Too late, I had to know now. So I kept bugging him about it, causing him to turn red and bury his head in his arms. I then told him to type it in the computer while I looked away, so he did.

"Get a guy to stand in your room butt naked for 24 hours and you won't get a woodie"

Okay, I gotta admit that I was a little disappointed. I was hoping for something along the lines of  "pull out your dick and i'll pull out mine and you won't get a woodie". But oh well, so I responded:

"You would lose that bet, and unless the guy was over 20, it would happen in less than 10 seconds."

Thinking back, I should have said something more along the lines of "I would, but I don't have a guy willing to get naked for me to prove it". Cause that might have led to other things. But it's okay. He then changed the subject but before I left I argued with him and said "You're not straight". He got defensive, but at the same time a little embarrassed. He wouldn't face towards me but instead looked out the window as he was saying "I'm not gay". I found that interesting.

Later last night we had an Awards Ceremony at school that I took him to. Not much interesting happened, except for when I wanted someone to take a picture of he and I he was like "You better not use this to beat off to tonight". I jokingly responded "how did you know?". But he laughed and then posed fore the picture.

I am really enjoying getting this close and comfortable with him. Also, I forgot to mention that earlier this week while filming at one of the other group member's houses, Mikey started texting me while in the same room. I jokingly started acting really sexual in my messages, with things along the lines of "I'm a slave 4 u baby". He kept rejecting me and then said "fuck you". I could tell he was joking by watching his facial expressions when responding. I then sent "I'm gay, remember? Fucking you wouldn't offend me, I'd like it ;)". He then started to laugh, and everyone in the room was wondering what he was laughing at, I enjoyed being the only one who knew. I'm happy that he is now comfortable enough to joke around like that and not be weirded out by me.


Onto other news. I seriously considered creating an email address to talk to you guys with, but honestly I feel like it will be too much to keep up with. Since you can comment anonymously I figured you guys wouldn't mind being open with me since no one can link it back to you. I may at one point make a Formspring account where you can send me anonymous messages and questions and I will respond through here. Let me know if that interests you.

For those of you who read and comment regularly, you have no idea how much it means to me. I nowhere near expected the attention and audience that you guys have brought to me. If there is anything I can do to make this blog more interesting to you please let me know.

Oops, Mikey just IMed me. I gotta go :)

  1. Hey Tristan.

    I don't know if you read my other comment...
    I'm that Swedish guy. As I wrote I would like to talk to you. It would be really nice to talk to somebody in the same situation.
