ok, so abvout 36 hours ago, on monday night, one of my Girlfriend's best friend (lets call him jack) was sitting with another friend (lets call him brian) at a bus stop near my girlfriend's house. some people came up, pulled a gun, requested all of their shit. jack handed the guy his wallet, brian handed him his cellphone and was digging in his pocket for other stuff and the guy with the gun started beating him over the head with the butt of the gun. it went off and hit jack in the stomach (he is 17).
then at 1:30 friday night, after falling asleep fully clothed with a zippo in my pocket, i wake up to find out that somehow, in my sleep, the lighter fell out of my pocket and lit my mattress on fire. I am so startled because i was completely asleep that i pat it out with my left hand and end up getting melted plastic all over it and 2nd degree burns on three of my fingers. i tell my parents what happened and of course they accuse my of smoking on my bed and don't believe me that i was completely asleep. they spend the rest of the day lecturing me on smoking tree and i am trying to convince them that i wasn't and kept offering to take voluntary drug tests because i havn't smoked in over a month and knew i would come up clean.
Fast forward to last night, I go to a baseball game with my girlfriend because we both need a distraction from everything in our lives. I got my driver's license a week and a half ago and california law stipulates that i must wait a year or until im 18 before i bring any passengers in my car. so the plan was for me to drive to my girlfriend's house and then we will walk to the same bus stop where her friend was shot and get on the bus to go to the game. when i go to her house, she gets in my car and says that she doesn't feel comfortable walking by the spot and especially since we are going to have to walk by the spot again at night on our way back. so i say ok and drive to the bus stop, park right in front and then we take it to the game, we come back after, get in my car, i drive her back to her house, (>5 minutes away) we park right near her house and we hook up bla bla bla. after that, she gets a call from her mom's partner and doesn't answer but i drive her right up to her house and her mom's partner is looking out the window and knows that im not supposed to be driving her. i see that she is on the phone and find out that it is to my dad. when i get home, i try to explain about being worried about going by the spot where jack got shot and brian got beat with a gun but he doesn't listen and takes my license away until i get back from costa rica on july 7th.
so to sum everything up, I lost my license, I have second degree burns on three of my fingers on my left hand, my parents think i'm smoking tree, one of my girlfriend's best friends is in the hospital in critical condition with gun shot wounds. fuck the last 36 hours
