Boyfriend makes me happy.

It’s cool. This handsome man and I are finally dating. Only 6 months in the making…
Yay! I’m going home to Texas to see my mom, stepdad, and two of my younger sisters! I can’t wait to get away from school, work, and crappy Pittsburgh weather! (One day it’s supposed to be 85 degrees—so excited!)
The past few days have been rough. Personal problems. Work problems. School problems. Little problems. (Yes, the sorority kind.) Big problems. (Yes, the sorority kind.) Problems on problems on problems.
At least I have my darling roommate and B to keep me a little sane.
Saturday afternoon, a couple of my ΑΣΤ sisters and I went to bunny yoga! It’s “Adopt a Bunny Month” at a local animal shelter, and one of their first events was bunny yoga. They brought in a local yoga instructor and had him teach a class in an enclosed room—while bunnies roamed free! While I was relaxing and stretching my muscles, so were the bunnies! It was wonderful and I wish they would offer it again! It was funny to see the bunnies run underneath you as you were in downward facing dog—or be inches from your face/crawl on top of you while in corpse pose. After the class, we spent about 20 minutes just playing with the bunnies—they were too precious.
Last night, the Ravens won the Super Bowl—what what? I’m a Ravens fan living in Pittsburgh, home of the Steelers, so I like to say I’m living behind enemy lines. I was and still am ecstatic! It was such a good game—at least after the power was fixed.
Finally, I had an extremely important realization this weekend concerning me and the cutie—who’ve I’ve been seeing, but not actually dating for almost 5 months now. If a guy doesn’t want to date me, he doesn’t want to date me. End of story. I can’t change that fact; all I can do is pick myself up, and move on—which means telling him our pseudo-relationship is through. I’m surprisingly not bitter or too torn up over it (I think the bunny yoga helped!). I entered into this weird friends with benefits situation of my own accord, knowing full well that it could end differently than I hoped, and I’m okay with that. You can’t force something that’s not there and I’m being wonderfully positive about this whole situation—something I was not expecting.
Here’s to bunny yoga, Super Bowl wins, and moving on.
- Friday night, I was made a Sigma Nu sweetheart!
- My Aunt Marcia, who’s from Minnesota, flew in on Saturday to come visit me! She leaves tomorrow.
- Sunday night, we were able to see a wonderful performance of Les Miserables. I cried all the tears. It was beautifully perfect.
- Also Sunday night, the Ravens won and are heading to the Super Bowl!
- This morning, my aunt and I ate had the “Best Breakfast in Pittsburgh” at Pamela’s dinner. They’re famous for their hotcakes, which are actually crepes. I had mine stuffed with strawberries and my aunt had hers with bananas and chocolate chips.
- This afternoon, we explored the Carnegie Museum of Art and of Natural History. I’ve been to the history part several times (for school assignments), but never to the art section. I loved (most of) it!
- Finally, just now, I logged into my student account to finish paying my tuition for this semester and saw a $900 scholarship credited to my account that my university never told me I won! Yay for saving that $900—hello, rent for 2 months.
I am so perfectly happy this weekend and couldn’t ask for anything better!
I had a great time with some good friends. First, they took me to a pirate bar and then we went to a Mexican restaurant. Sounds kind of lame for a 21st birthday, but it was wonderful. I ended up doing a flaming shot that tasted like red hot cinnamon!
So, the cutie gave me a Christmas present last night. Womp. I thought about getting him one, but didn’t want it to be weird—since we’re not actually together or anything—so I decided not too. I thought about getting him The Avengers on DVD because he always says he needs to get it, but never actually goes out and buys it. Anyways, he told me he got me something and half-asleep I said, “Why?” Then he said for putting up with all his nonsense—silly him. He got me a really cute (and soft!) scarf and a pumpkin spice candle (love!). I told him about not getting one because I didn’t want it to seem weird or too “relationshipy.” Now—should I get him a gift anyways or would that be strange? And why would he give me a gift? I know it’s nice, but it’s just confusing in the context of our non-relationship.
Over-thinking, am I?
I really miss my mom, my younger sister, and my stepdad. I’m going back to DC for Christmas break, because I’m going back to work at City Sports, and I probably will again for Spring Break—only because I pay for my own rent and bills by myself, so any paycheck helps. I really want to go home soon, but tickets to fly to San Antonio are expensive for just a weekend trip.
I miss my mommy.
This morning, my roommate and I went grocery shopping—who doesn’t love grocery shopping! We brought back so much produce and seafood! I can’t wait to make all sorts of yummy things. Our house now has avocados and bananas again! (They are essential to us!) Plus, we bought quite a few new things we’ve never tried before—look at us being all adventurous! But seriously…is anything ever bad from Trader Joe’s? I think not.
We haven’t really had time to cook lately, so we need to make more of an effort—especially to prevent food from spoiling. We recently got a crock pot, so I’m hoping if we throw something together the night before or morning of a busy day (especially when one of us has night class) it will help us cook more—rather than just snacking or order out, which happens a lot.
Does anyone else get wonderfully content and satisfied when their cupboards and fridge are full? What’s your favorite thing from Trader Joe’s? Or just your favorite think to make or cook?
Tonight, I’m going to a fraternity’s formal with a friend! I’m excited to get all dressed up, go to dinner, and dance. Tomorrow, is my sorority’s formal—I’m going with a different friend. Expect pictures from both nights! Sunday, is going to be my ultimate catch-up day. I have so much homework that I need to catch up on and do for the upcoming week that it’s slightly ridiculous.
need to get my life together. I hardly cook my own food anymore. I haven’t had time for the gym. I am stressing about my total lack of caring in general.
For me, I feel like everything’s been so different lately and I just don’t know what to do about it. I don’t care about things I should care about, like school or my emotional health or work, as much as I once did. I literally have no fucks to give this semester and don’t know how to kick-start myself into caring again.
I am not, by any means, depressed…just generally indifferent. Have any of you ever been in one of these funks?
Halloween Weekend! This weekend was too long—and not in a good way. I had too much to do, between homework and finishing various crafts for my little! Friday night, my roommate and I had people over to our place. I was lazy, and just went as a bro—a sports bra, cut up t-shirt, and my “swag” hat. Saturday night, I went to a friend’s house (Pikachu’s house!) and was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (Raphael to be exact!). I just bought a TMNT shirt that I could wear again and cut up an old t-shirt to make my headband and armbands. (Psh, the Boondocks Saint is the “cutie” I frequently talk about.)
Sunday, I spent 9 hours crafting—making a scrapbook, a fleece tie blanket, and various smaller projects.
And now? Well, I’m hoping this Sandy nonsense doesn’t hit us too hard. We’re just in the outskirts of the storm, but there’s a very real chance that we’re going to lose power—not happy. If we do, I’m going to live on my sorority’s wing in the dorms, because all the campus dorms have generators.
