OCD Theatre


Dead to you and me. That’s OCD.

The Pretty Committee, Siren WaveRiders Surf Team, and Sirens Women Soccer Team walked down the hall for the last time today. With our heels click clacking against the linoleum floor. It seems like it only happened a day ago, me entering OCD holding onto Ava, Summer, and Sarah-Anne hands prior to seeing Massie and Alicia.

We spent our last day writing semi-sweet and sugar filled messages in girl’s yearbooks. Claire leaving fingerprints of sour gummy sugar stains. I’m going to miss these girls tremendously and won’t ever see them again. Unless they are attending Westchester Prep in the fall.

The PC and I hugged everyone and didn’t be bi-partisan to anyone like a legislature of a bicameral government. I remembered to leave my mark on everything that meant anything to me. We all linked arms saying goodbye to the 8th grade,  OCD, and the past.

While, saying hello to our future.


We celebrated our graduation with some High School Musical 3. I thought I forgot all the words but in actuality I realize Disney never leaves your soul.

Skye Hamiliton’s Home



Skye hosted her Annual pool party blast in celebration of the end of the year. The PC and I attended along with most of OCD and some Briarwood boys. Jayden, Ava, Natalie, Summer, Sarah-Anne, and a few girls from the Soccer and Surf team were in attendance.

The party ended at 11 pm and when darkness encompassed us, it was absoultely stunning. There was bright colored lights that were amazing coming from the porch, punch in hands of everyone, music on the highest volume still not loud enough, and people being pushed into the pool. Dancing was an element not noticed either.

Sparklers were out and were waved around on the grass. I had my own and was holding Jayden’s. I started a playful game of keeping it from him with him chasing me. Eventually, he caught up and I just smiled my contagious smile. He didn’t look mad just happy. He held my hand that had his sparkler and gave it Summer who was nearby. She took it and disappeared. He leaned in. I leaned in. And we kissed. It was and the party was the perfect start to summer.

Remember, Here Comes the Sun…

Siren Playing Fields

“Lyd! Pass it here!” Ava Martinez shouted. I did a Figure 8 like pattern around Summer Davison to confuse her during the scrimmage. I kicked the ball swiftly while it passed Natalie Johnson and Sarah-Anne Davison and straight in-between Ava’s cleats. Ava kicked it up and head butted it straight into the goal with Gabrielle Nicholson trying to block it. “She shoots! She scores! Goal!” Summer yells quoting She’s the Man, our favorite movie.

“Alright everybody! Go get changed out!” Coach Justice yells.


“What are you doing tonight Lyd?” Summer asked coming out of the shower. “Why?” I questioned brushing my long hair. “Oh, because Gabrielle, Sarah-Anne, Ava, and Natalie and I were planning on going to Slice of Heaven and hanging out with my brother, Jayden and his friends.” “Cool.” I said trying to suppress my happiness. “Care to join us?” Natalie asked. “Yes.” I said turning on my heel. You see, no one I mean, no one knows about my huge crush that I have on Jayden. We’ve known each other since the 5th grade and I’ve had a crush on him since the 6th grade.


Slice of Heaven Pizzeria

“Hey Kristen.” I heard Jayden say once we walked in. “Jay.” I said smiling subconsciously checking my outfit. I had on ripped denim jeans, racerback tank in black and hot pink stripes, and combat boots with my hair in a messy fishtail.

“You look great.” Jay said to me making me blush. We hung out and talked with everyone for a while and before I knew it, it was time to go. 

I thought to myself about the night, I noticed that Jayden was a strength of mine and a definite weakness.

Literature & Composition

“Emg!” Claire said pointing to the OCD’s Planners’ Date. “We have only few days left until summer!” She said excitedly. “Thank goodness, we’ve found a new school that isn’t awful.” Alicia rebutted. “No kidding!” Dylan said laughing. “So close…” I whispered to Massie. “Are you nervous?” I asked the LPC. “Nope.” Claire said but by her red cheeks, we knew better. “Eh…” Alicia and Dylan responded together. “Apple-C!” They shouted causing laughter. “I know I am.” I sounded. “What about you, Mass?” Dylan asked. “Yes and no…” Our alpha responded with a genuine smile.

I’m going to miss this, I thought to myself. It’s sad to think everything will end here at OCD. The laughter, middle school lingo, and being at the top of the class. Sadness has engulfed me like a wave because of graduation… And, fear has embossed my thoughts of a new school.

Siren Playing Fields

“Summer, Sarah-Anne, Natalie, Kristen, Gabrielle, and Ava; Come here!” Coach Justice yelled from across the fields. We jogged over there in our cleats and our bright pink pennies.

“You guys can go ahead and head out to the beach for your Surf Competiton.” Coach Justice told us. “Thank-you.” I said smiling.



Siren WaveRiders Surf  v. Lady Patriots Surf

“Gather up!” Coach Kelly yelled. “Alright, Kristen start it off.” She continued. “Two feet taller, three abs stronger, Sirens what? Sirens…!” I said. “BREAK!” The team shouted. Each girl headed to their corresponding boards. I started to chalk mine up. Afterwards, Summer zipped up my wetsuit. “Leslie, for Lady Patriots and Kristen, for Siren WaveRiders.”

I got the first wave in the heat and got a 8.5 for my carve off the lip with a three twist. “Great job!” Coach Kelly said.

The competition continued and the Sirens beat the Lady Patriots.

“Ava, Summer, Sarah-Anne, Natalie, and Gabrielle.” Coach Kelly said. “Yes.” We responded turning around. “Your our greatest. But, there’s a slight issue in your sports of choices.” She said. “Meaning?” I asked. “The Districts for High School Soccer Girls’ is the same day as the District of Girls’ Surfing.” I looked at her appalled. “You’ve got to pick: Soccer or Surfing.” She said.

I heard the most inevitable thing. Constraints were placed. What am I going to do?


May 25, 2013 


“Jayden!” Summer and Sarah-Anne yelled from the sidelines with me. He scored a perfect goal hitting the net. The girls and I stormed the field searching for Jay. “You did great.” I said smiling giving him a hug. “Thank you.” He said. “Care to celebrate?” He asked me. “When?” I questioned. “Tomorrow. Pinkberry?” “Perfect.” I said smiling. “See you.”

As I spoke those last words, my heart was jumping with excitement with the possibility of new love.

Gregory’s Apartments 4R

As I sat at home that night, I thought everything over of what happened the past week. This Bethany Hamilton quote, “We all go through rough times. We have those obstacles that seem too large to overcome or that current that you never seem to swim out of. We have to decide that matters the most to us–our passions.”  got me through the week. I knew what had to be done, what had to be thought of. But afterwards, I watched Chasing Mavericks. That movie made me think. I was inspired to live like Jay. I’m scared of losing everything and everyone.

My life is a Maverick…
