|03:13 pm - A lovely weekend|
I had such an amazing weekend with Peter. Saturday we stayed in bed till 4, then went out for delicious mexican food, bubble tea, and a movie with his friends. Sunday I met his parents, helped him pick up their Christmas tree, wandered around a nice little downtown area, and ate pasta.
One of the nicer moments was Saturday morning, while we were cuddling in bed. There was, as there so often is, an exchange of, "I really like you," and, "I really like you too." And then I admitted that sometimes I wondered if I felt more for him than that. Which eventually resulted in him saying that there's a song that made him think of me, and so of course I asked him to sing it.
Hey, I think I love you.
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for.
(I had to google it to get all of the words)
To which I eventually responded, "if I had heard that song, it would have made me think of you to." This made him rather happy.
And thus, we progress.
Current Mood: happy

|06:10 pm - Future|
So, this week I had two job interviews. One in Cleveland, one in Chicago. They are both really, really different. Different cities. Different commutes. Different company sizes. Different corporate culture. Different types of jobs. And I can't really figure out which one I want more.
Well, I couldn't, until a short call with CC just now. I really like the Chicago job, I think. But I'm worried about not being able to save up money; Chicago is crazy expensive. But CC wants to go to grad school in Chicago, and if she does, there's a chance she might live at her parents' house for it. And they have an extra room, and her parents like me, and there's a good chance I could live there too.
So I'd be:
1. In Chicago (... or rather, a fancy suberb of it)
2. About 7.5 miles from work
3. Living with CC
4. Paying a very little in rent/utilities
And I know that the first place I live wherever I end up is temporary; I'd be moving somewhere else anyway when Peter found a job in town. So this sounds like an excellent short-term housing solution. OMG, I'm legitimately excited about the future now.
Well, I shouldn't be excited yet. I haven't got an offer yet. I think I did well during the interview... but I don't really know.

|12:49 pm - :D|
Well, it looks like I no longer have to make Peter-related posts friends only. I got around to telling my parents about him, and thus we are now Facebook Official. It only took us two months of Official Dating to get there, haha.
Mmm. I'm still surprised this is happening. He's just... so many things that are perfect for me. And I'm so many things that's perfect for him.
I just got back from visiting him, during fall break. I flew out on Wednesday, and got back on Monday. I was scheduled to get back on Sunday, but there was mechanical trouble. So I got pushed to a Monday afternoon flight. Which meant another night with Peter, woo. Plus a voucher for a free round trip flight sometime.
And now, I need to work on some essays. Fall break isn't really so much a holiday as some extra time to do homework. I didn't really do much homework when I was in FL...

|11:49 am - Two dreams|
I had a bit of a nightmare last night. I got a computer virus. It was rather annoying.
There were three investigators looking over a fence. It was wrought iron, and had a one or two foot brick wall base. It started off on their heads, and then all appeared the same height. Then the dream camera panned down, and I realized that one of them was standing on the brick part of the wall. For some reason, I found it rather amusing.

|10:06 pm - So excited!|
Oh man. I'm so excited for Thanksgiving break. I'm going to be spending it in Chicago. And do you know who else is going to be there?
Bloody hell, this is awesome. Add on to this Chris, Steve (from college), and Mel, and it's just -ing amazing. Admitedly, Kate will be spending some of the time doing school work, and CC has her boyfriend with her, but that's how these things go. Some of my sorority sisters are also in Chicago.

|03:02 pm - Laundry|
Back home, Mom uses only one thing in our laundry: Tide Scent Free, or something. It's basically Tide without any of the frills, because she's allergic to a lot of stuff.
And now that I've been on my own for a while, I feel like I have the chance to branch out. I already have, a bit. First, I started using regular Tide. Then Tide with Fabreeze scent. Then Tide with baking soda. Now I'm using that "7 Signs" stuff.
But there's so much out there. And I don't know which combinations work. For example, all of the following seem to be things you can put in the washing machine:
1. Laundry detergent
2. Fabric softener
3. Fabric bleach
4. Extra stain fighting stuff
Shit, son. I know I don't need #4. And I'm still not quite sure what #2 does. I sometimes use #3 with my white clothes. Actually, I bought some new bleach yesterday, because I like to have it when I wash my towels, and I had a bathing suit that smelled really bad after it got packed away while wet. And it's lavender scented! Who knew you could add sent to bleach?
And then there's dryer sheets. I'm still trying to figure out why people use those.
At least my laundry is cheaper than other people's, since I'm not in the habit of using that other stuff?

Dear weight loss,
I'm glad you are visiting. Goodness knows I've tried my darndest to get you out here. But while you are here, do you really have to make my boobs shrink? Oh, I know it hasn't been by much. But I like them this size. A full B is sooo nice to have. And I just bought a bunch of bras. Perhaps you could concern yourself with other things? Like my thighs?

|03:14 pm - Slim Fast|
Starting yesterday, I'll finally be volunteering at Planned Parenthood on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Because that means I wouldn't be getting home till quite late, I decided to buy some Slim Fast as a meal replacement.
And I'm pretty sure I've had it before. Back in elementary school, this strange thing happened. I forgot how to swallow solid food. I would chew, and chew, and chew... and then wouldn't be able to swallow it. It was the strangest thing. It went away eventually, but I don't know how long it lasted. A couple summers ago I felt the same thing again, but just for a moment.
Anyway, I was drinking the Slim Fast and was like, "Hey, I've definitely tasted this before. Must have been during that strange time." Or maybe it tastes like Yoohoo- our family won a case of it years and years ago from a radio station, and I know I drank it, but have forgotten what it tasted like. Maybe this. Who knows.
