As I mentioned, I had plans with Cute Blonde Girl this morning. I had to wake up really early. Like, I don't think I've EVER woken up that early on a Sunday. But I didn't even care. I was like ultra nervous, though. I was running around trying to get ready without waking up my roommate, and I ran into my RA in the hall and it was really awkward and I was scared he was totally judging me because who gets up at 7 on a Sunday morning? I put on legit makeup and everything, even though I'm often too lazy to do much more than mascara and lip gloss.
I found out that she lives all the way across campus, but she comes to this particular Starbucks every Sunday. We're both obsessed with washing our hands, and she's like, really, really, really smart. Her exact major is human physiology. I thought was just health sciences, but that's just the main "category" if that makes sense. (Like, we have "business majors" but there are actually a bunch of different sub-kinds like finance, marketing, etc.) She wants to be a surgeon. And she's taking organic chemistry. Oh my god. That's like, the hardest class ever invented.
She asked me how I'm adjusting to Boston, if I'm friends with my floormates, and stuff like that. She wanted to know what Mississippi is like and if they have winter there (they don't) and I told her it was basically just farmland and Walmart and she couldn't even believe such a place exists, haha. Then she asked if I had done the homework for the class we have together, and I mentioned that sometimes I kind of have a hard time focusing when I'm trying to study it (but I didn't tell her it's because I can't stop thinking about her!) and she was like, "Oh, I have this one song I always listen to that gets me to focus... Here, you should try it," and she gave me her headphones so I could listen to it and when I took them from her, my hand brushed against hers, and I got really nervous but I didn't let it show.
She actually remembered how to spell my name, which everyone gets wrong, and she said she really, really wants to look through all of my pictures on Facebook. Okay. But she's going to see all these awful pictures of me from like middle school, haha. I was like, "But I'm so unphotogenic!" and she was like, "Oh, it's fine, look at some of these pictures of me..." And she showed me a picture of herself from like 4 years ago. And then she showed me some pictures of her and her sisters. And then she showed me this picture of her with her cross country team and she's like not exactly wearing all that much and her stomach is really toned!!? I'm SO not complaining, but ummm why'd she show me that?
Anyway, so I added her on Facebook, and, bracing myself for the worst, I immediately checked her "interested in". But it's not listed. The section is empty, but she lists herself as single. Now, it doesn't have to mean anything, of course, and since I'm me I am definitely not going to get my hopes up too high, but let's be real here, what does a blank "interested in" usually mean? Mine's not filled in, but I don't fill in a lot of my profile information. But she filled in her relationship status and not her "interested in". Hmm. Since she said she was gonna Facebook stalk me, I'm looking through all her pictures, and apparently she went to prom with a guy her senior year of high school, but that was two years ago and it also doesn't have to mean anything because I have a boy best friend and people who don't know we're both gay mistake us as a couple. And even if he was her boyfriend, she could be bi. I don't know how to figure any of that out.
And I got her number so I can make more plans with her!! But since she's pre-med, her schedule is INSANE. She showed me the graph and all I could say was holy shit. So I'm thinking maybe we should go to Starbucks again sometime.
I didn't even do the nervous voice! And I didn't freak out any, not even when I asked for her number. I just now texted her so she'll have my number too. I don't know if she'll text me back because I didn't really say anything except that I had fun today, and I know she's like super busy today but yeah!
One week ago, I could not even so much as glance in this girl's general direction without feeling so nervous that I completely lost the ability to function like a normal human being, and look at me now! She's so cute, oh my god. I really like her!!!
