I'm going to be hosting an Austrian student for about 2 weeks in a couple here. From the 18th to the 30th, this month, I'll have some Austrian guy at my disposal, and I don't know much about him, but I chose him cause he looked sorta cute, and his profile I got to choose from said he especially likes soccer and ultimate, and I just happen to be on a soccer team, and an ultimate team.
I hope we'll get along.
(Oh, and that spend a year in Germany program I mentioned last year, I'm going to look into it this year, and if I can, I definitely definitely definitely want to apply this year, for reasons I shall mention sometime).
Part of the reason I'm so excited to have this Austrian guy is all my friends have been super lame recently. (If you're reading this Shelbs, not you, although we should totally hang out. I can drive myself now, and my weekends are basically all the way open, so it'll be easy to get together)
Like my good friend Mexican, it really really sucked, on Friday he made plans with me and another kid I'll call Asian (how multicultural my friends are!) to go to this guy's house called Republican Gamer for a few hours, then come hang out with us.
He told me he didn't really wanna go to Republican Gamer's house, but then when Friday came, he left without saying anything, and wouldn't text back when I texted him till 4 hours after we were supposed to meet.
And when he did he said like I thought I made it pretty clear I was staying at RG's house and I was like Umh, usually, by making plans and then not changing them, the general assumption is to follow them. It was clear you were staying at his house by the time it was 3,4 hours after we were supposed to meet, and you didn't even fucking text me... Honestly, I waited around for our meeting for a few hours on this beautiful day that I would have spent doing something else had I known you'd changed your mind.
Honestly, I'm still really really pissed at him.
And not just that, all of my friends have been ditching out on me at every single opportunity, every single date I make, gets shat upon later.
Do I just suck or something? See, I don't even know.
But what's going to be awesome for 2 weeks is, I'm going to have an Austrian, and assuming I get along with Helmut, his name, it's going to be really easy to hang out with him.
If I'm going to do something like go hiking in the gulch or playing racquetball, or frisbee, or going on the Ferry, my other friends can decide between doing that with me, or doing something else.
And even if they don't really care, they have to go to the energy to break out of their apathy and actually leave their houses and meet with me.
With the Austrian, he's gonna wanna do stuff while he's in America, and he's going to have the choice of either coming with me when I go somewhere, or staying at my house and doing nothing.
So I might finally have someone to go to Value Village with me, and sit on the beach at night, and go hiking in the gulch!
Honestly, it feels really pathetic and lonely to do all those things by myself because either my friends are lame or they just don't like me, I'm not quite sure.
Woot. I'm so fucking excited.
But of course, there's still almost 2 weeks to be gotten through.
Holy shit, I still need to read the entire Scarlet Letter. Honestly, what a fucking pretentious, stupid, prudish, restrictive, and just plain tedious book could someone even consider writing...
I'll have to Wikipedia it real quick.
