Speaking of "keeping things interesting," as soon as my washing machine and car got fixed - my laptop broke. It spent the night in the Apple Computer Hospital and thankfully I can pick it up today after just 24 hours of no computer. I was seriously panicked when I realized I'd be without a computer for a day, although this was probably the most convenient time to have it happen, because I don't really have any schoolwork yet.
Also in the vein of "keeping things interesting"....there's this guy. He used to live in College City and we were good friends, and kinda sorta flirted for a while, he bought me a few dinners, took me to a couple movies, etc etc etc but it never really went anywhere. Mostly because I kept my foot pressed so hard on the brakes that the poor guy didn't really have a chance. He has since graduated with his PhD and moved many states away and we didn't really keep in touch. But.....recently we've started talking again, and suddenly I've been wondering Did I miss out on something? I am about 85% sure this is a case of just wanting what I can't have...because when he was here and completely available, I was not interested. And now suddenly that he's gone and not really available (I mean he's "available" as in single, just not easily accessible like when we lived in the same city and went to the same school), I'm scratching my head like Huh. What if...? He now lives in a city semi-close to where my parents live, and I thought about driving out to visit him when I was home for winter break, but never got the guts to actually initiate and follow through on that. Now I'm kind of wishing I had, so that I would at least have something more concrete to go on. Anyways, he's super lovely and sweet and adorable and a SMARTY PANTS because he has a PhD in something involving biology and medicine and engineering. So, quite a catch. I hate this sense of not being able to trust my own feelings...like, do I like him? Maybe? Maybe not? He's nice but do I like him? Am I remembering him correctly? Why didn't I give this more thought for the several years he was here and I saw him all the time? LOVE IS SO COMPLICATED.
Anyways, I'm at work and probably should start, you know, doing some work. I've been putting in a lot of hours the past couple weeks so my paycheck is gonna be big and juicy (well, as big and juicy as you can get from part-time, hourly wages....I have low standards).
