So it’s Thursday night and yet again, all my friends are drinking and I’m sitting here alone in my room doing work and going to bed soon because I have a race tomorrow. It sucks, I know. I was sick yesterday and actually thought I wouldn’t be able to run tomorrow but thank the lord I’m feeling better today. It’s good though, cause if I run well tomorrow, I look even better because I was sick and I ran well anyway, but if I run bad, well then I just ran bad because I was sick. It’s pretty much win win. I don’t know how I’ll do. I took yesterday off. I really need to qualify for conferences though. If I don’t I’m not going to be a happy camper, in this case, I think I’d really be an angry camper.
Anyway, my heater hasn’t really slowed down besides my sickness. The next two days could be amazing if everything goes right. I get my German test back tomorrow, then run the 5k, then have the 800 on Saturday, then a big party. Potential to be an absolutely awesome weekend. I could use one of those. We’ll see how things go.
So lately I’ve been thinking a lot about girls. Not about them but about talking to them and how you should talk to them. If there’s a girl you like but you don’t know that well, I guess you’d generally talk to her and try to be funny and joke a lot but that’s about it. I wouldn’t really want to ask them any serious questions because that could A, lead to boring conversation, and B, make her uninterested. If you don’t know them well and you have one bad conversation, well then the whole thing goes down the drain because that conversation ended on a bad note and that’s the last impression you have of that person. So you don’t know someone well and you only have a bad impression, who’s interested in that? But when there is a girl and you can actually talk to them, i.e. have a normal conversation about actual topics, what does that mean? You’re good friends? You get along well? Is that as far as it goes? I guess if you’re, as Mike would say DTR (down to relationship) then this is what you’d be looking for. Start as friends and move up. Obviously though there are a lot of girls I can talk to seriously as a person and not be DTR so… I guess you have to weed them out. Now if it’s a Saturday night and you’re looking to get some, you just have to be witty and charming and you’re pretty much in. No serious talking there. Do you even bother talking to the Saturday night chick again after that? I imagine that the real world is nothing like this. When you go out to a bar you’re mostly trying to score and if you think you may have actually found someone then I guess you keep in contact, and when it was just a one time thing you never have to see that person again, but when you see these people every day it’s different. I’m pretty much hoping to have one of those love at first sight things in a year or two so I don’t have to worry about this at all. I asked Tristan where he would want to meet his future wife, his answer was a porn shop. I was thinking something more like the laundry place, the super market, the gym, or something like that. I guess if my mom keeps doing my laundry and food shopping I’ll have some problems finding this girl soon but my hopes are high.
So there’s one month left at school and I’m beginning to realize how disgusting my room is. My pillow case has drool, blood, and some dark brown liquid stained into it. I dump my contact solution on the carpet every morning, there’s been a 3-way on the futon and people still nap there all the time, there’s probably over 100 crushed potato chips embedded into the carpet, my desk is extremely sticky at some points (you all have dirty minds, it’s cherry wave vodka that spilled), week old pee bottles lying around, the trashcan has been puked in 3 times and never washed out, probably on the upwards of 2,000 farts. The list goes on and on. It’s amazing that we’re not all diseased in some way from this room. It should be quarantined or something. While I don’t want to go back home for summer because I really like it here, the clean environment should be an extremely nice change from what has become the norm around here. With a month left I guess I don’t even care anymore but if there was someone new that I was showing my room too, I wouldn’t be to proud.
Well that’s it for now. I’ll post again on Saturday or Sunday probably. It’s Friday everyone, enjoy the weekend.
