Haha! This guy's awesome. My friend posted this video on her Facebook wall:
In other news:
I'm happier. I think Brad might like me. Here is a list of possible hints that are probably really stupid things to be excited about, though I care anyway because I'm just looking for any signs to still have hope:
We went to the school library today in English and he sat next to me by the computers.
HOWEVER: This was the computer he had been sitting at for the past two trips and two of his best friends were sitting on the other side of me.
After I was done finding online resources for my essay topic, I sat at one of the many (maybe 5-7) empty tables to read my text resource and he got up and moved right next to me from the other side of the area.
HOWEVER: He might just enjoy my company in a platonic way.
HOWEVER HOWEVER: He was with one of his best friends back there, so it does seem like he enjoys being around me "a lot".
I just noticed today that he listens to literally every single thing that I say when everybody else ignores me. He also smiles every time we talk and laughs every time I say something with levity.
HOWEVER: I can't think of a HOWEVER here.
I'm probably reading way too much into all of this, but I don't care. It makes me happy. He still might be gay, anyway, because he never talks about girls (or any sort of attraction).
I haven't done any research here. I might do some tomorrow, but I have no time today: homework after this.
Brad obviously pays attention to me, too, because he's noticed that I really like Merzbow. Most people probably wouldn't be able to remember that name unless they spend a lot of time with me, already have prior familiarity with the artist, pay a lot of attention to me, or care about me. That's most people, anyway. I don't spend that much time with Brad and he wasn't already familiar with Merzbow, so it might be a good sign.
For our project, we had to choose a topic of current international concern. I'm sort of regretting choosing illegal drugs over same-sex marriage. I would have found out how Brad feels about homosexuality.
