Today happened.

Unfortunately, this is a Brad journal.
I sat by him in my first two periods (two-period class) because the girl who usually sits there was absent and people were talking and they mentioned how a girl in the class obviously has a crush on Brad and talked about that for a while until someone said "Or Josh" (that's me) and Brad said that he'd choose me over her. I do hope there was a bit of seriousness behind that joking.
We also worked together in a group in the next class. We had interesting discussions until the rest left to another group because everybody was done with work, so it was just Brad and me left; I left after a while, too because I couldn't think of anything to talk to him about and people were telling me to go to them so I could join in on their religious debate. I didn't really say much. I mostly just agreed with an agnostic there. I also found out about another nihilist in the class. I might have a conversation with him. He's one of the people who knows I'm gay, but I don't know him that well. He's just someone I had an urge to tell, while I don't want to tell some people I talk with all the time and trust a lot. It's weird.
I just got Lop Lop by Merzbow in the mail. Only 299 copies made. I'm listening to it right now and it is so incredibly amazing. I love it.
Have I mentioned that I got a puppy last Saturday? He's annoying; he runs in front of my feet when I walk and tries to lick all over my face in search of milk. He also tries to get milk out of my fingers. He's a brat to my other dog, who's a brat to him. The puppy (who I call brog, a portmanteau of bro and dog) and my cat want t be friends, but every time they're near, my dog scares the cat away. The pets are taking over my life at home.

Sounds like a lovely day

You may be closer to finding what you seek. Brad picking your company over someone else may seem joking based on the "crush," but he may be talking about the friendship between you two as well. Why not sit there again? Two boys can be close friends. Hope you find some happiness with Brog. As for your life moving out of your hands, I do not understand how the furry creatures do it.

I sit there whenever I get the chance.

Even when she's at school, but in another desk. It's really annoying when she sits there because she's right between Brad and me, blocking my view of him.
The brog is always getting a bunch of attention because someone always needs to supervise him and he and the dog keep arguing and being annoying. That's happening all the time. That cat usually stays upstairs and minds its own business, though. Probably because my dog's been being a bastard son of a bitch. (See what I did?)

All's fair in love and war

This may be some heathy competition. Let's see who can win Brad's attention.
