Any recommendations would be AMAZING!
Now, onto some news...
I haven't been able to post for a while due to my hectic house-hopping schedule, but now I'm in ctown and have been for a week. And it feels good! It's nice to finally be able to unpack and put my suitcase away... I finally feel secure. Like... I'm sitting in this room I'm renting in this house of this organization I'm involved in, and for the next month, it's MINE. I'm paying for it-- well, I'm TRYING to but the job hunt isn't going so well... But it's mine. I'm independent here. I can come and go as I please and I take care of my own meals (I'VE MISSED THIS SO MUCH).
I mean, I miss my family of course. I love them. But right now I can't be with them. I hadn't had time to process what a change it would be, so when I got to their new abode... I just couldn't handle it. Next time, I'll need to be ready. (And now my mom's guilting me into coming back next month which is superb...)
By Thanksgiving, I think I will be.
But right now, I'm so happy to be where I am. I LOVE this place. I love my university and I love the town where it's in. At the very least, I'd like to reture here, because it's just the coolest place. EVeryone is really artsy and relaxed and vegetarian or vegan (!!!), so I feel like I fit here. I walk into town and I feel like I'm with people I understand.
Though some people are pretty out there. ;)
But, yeah. Aside from the occasional boredom (most people in the house are taking classes or working during the day), I'm having the best time! I really am...
And it's definitely a plus that A's here. I feel like we're already more comfortable with each other, and we've gone out in a group, which is kind of the first step to dating, right?
Tonight we're mini-golfing with a couple of ther people, and on Thursday we're going to see HP with a group, but we'll be in a separate theatre from everyone else (because we bought our tickets later... but I'm certainly not complaining!).
He's shy, so I've been learning how to make the first move/ initiate conversations with him (which, being a shy gal myself, is really good for me), and I think I'm helping to ease both of us into the idea that we could date/ be a couple.
And the best thing is that I think he might be interested! (fingers crossed)
Cliffnote version of a long-ish story: he thought I was asking him to come to a movie with him and he looked really disappointed because he was supposed to be homeward-bound before that.
I just really want this to work out, because I think that it could. It's just difficult sometimes for me to figure out what's too forward (I'm pretty sure I haven't crossed that line yet haha) and what isn't quite forward enough for a shy guy like him.
Any tips? On this or the scale!
And now, I have a LOT of catching up to do on your wonderful blogs!
