The Drama Queen (A 12-part Coming of Age Story)

Notice: This is a compilation of work I created over the course of two weeks in April 2015 as a result of my parents’ absence from home.

Home Alone Day #1 Entry #1: I’m quite enjoying the bachelor life. I have to consistently remind myself not to investigate the bumps in the night to refrain from dying a horrible death at a point where it will be several days until someone discovers my lifeless body.

Home Alone Day #2 Entry #2: I haven’t been home all day. However, my freedom at school seems to have broadened with the absence of my parentals at home. Maybe I’ll go out tonight. Maybe a few people will come over and we can have a “study session.” I don’t know how far I can take these newfound freedoms. My only hope is that I do not get out of hand. I do know that once I get home I’ll have to take care of last night’s dishes or my mommy will yell at me…

Home Alone Day #3 Entry #3: I have come to realize that living off of Oreos may have dire repercussions in the future. I know now that I just delve into the pantry in hopes to find another source of nourishment. The pop tarts hiding away may sustain me for a few days to come. Similarly, I could get away with eating a bowl of saimen 10985273_806766092749842_8739628471097615552_n.jpgfor dinner…

Home Alone Day #4 Entry #4: Maiah took me out to dinner for our first unsupervised date! Unfortunately, Aunty Nicole stopped by and crashed the party. Luckily we’re going home to an empty house. It is going to be magical 😍

Home Alone Day #5 Entry #5: My shower count for today is running on three and counting. The infinite supply of hot water is quite refreshing. I have consumed a total of three Go-Go Squeezes and two bowls of Goldfish. I am not ashamed.

Home Alone Day #6 Entry #6: This morning I stepped outside to check the mail and was immediately assaulted by a flying cockroach. Similarly, I checked the fridge and noticed that I was running extremely low on milk (my main source of sustenance). After crying I was able to collect myself enough to take a venture to Waimea for a relaxing afternoon at the Farmer’s Market. Currently, Ghar is forcing me to watch NCAA basketball. I am not enjoying myself. However, I am eager to begin getting ready for my Senior Prom this evening. Gonna be heading out with all my BOIZ.

I spent my Easter with the Ashcraft family today, and that was very nice. Last night I was in celebration at my senior prom. Unfortunately it was five million degrees in the dance so the picture you see below is Ghar, Ethan, and my retreat to the bathroom where the AC was pumping. Roughly four escapades similar to this took place. When we weren’t in the bathroom, you can trust that we were slaying the dance floor.

Home Alone Day #8 Entry #8: SOS! sh*t is going down! The house is shaking. There’s something in the walls. Oh no! They’re closing in on me. Send help immediately.

Home Alone Day #9 Entry #9: Today I had a one man dance party. Actually, now that I think about it I’ve had a solo dance party every day since my parents left me to fend for myself. The days are blurring into the nights. My food supply is depleting. I took a pee at one point, forgot I was peeing, and walked away from the toilet. As I was still peeing. Everything is a mess.

Home Alone Day #10 Entry #10: I am currently on the hunt for three geckos I found wandering around the establishment. They have evaded me for the past two nights. Tonight will be the night… My drive to do any form of productive work has completely diminished. My inability to drive legally (and therefore my inability to drive at all) has proven to be my biggest handicap. I just want some Subway. Is that too much to ask for?

Home Alone Day #11 Entry #11: Maiah, Bri, and Melia stopped by this evening to make me dinner and bake cookies. The kitchen burned down, but not to worry, the cookies are in mint condition! Also, the ice cream didn’t even melt. Thank God!

Home Alone Day #12 Entry #12: On the eve of my parents’ return home I look back on my past two weeks as a bachelor. First of all, my house may be the scariest place to live alone in. Trees scratch against the windows, doors slam shut when the windows are left open, some creepy guy comes out of my closet to watch me sleep every night. It is ridiculous! Also, waiting to prep the house for my parents arrival last minute has maybe been the worst decision of my life. Four loads of laundry, two loads of dishes, and a mopped floor later and all I want to do is eat ice cream and cry. However, my time alone has been nothing short of enjoyable. All of my aunties and uncles pulled through to take care of me when I needed milk or dinner. I could blast my music throughout the house and nobody told me to turn it down. From (practically) unsupervised dates and sleepovers to nights spent alone I had a very nice two weeks to myself. I am eager to see my parents tomorrow afternoon.

There will be no further updates…
