Thoughts

I should be sleeping, but I don't have class until 2 tomorrow, and I'm enjoying some alone time while my roommate is out doing god knows what. I've been listening to a lot of full albums lately. My personal favorite right now is Brand New's "Your Favorite Weapon". (Can you guess which song off the album is my favorite?)

I really need to make some friends who aren't on my floor. Well, I guess Cute Blonde Girl counts as my friend by now, sort of? Maybe? Yeah, I'm gonna count her. And she definitely doesn't live here, so let me rephrase that: I really need to make some friends who aren't on my floor and who I'm not attracted to.

My floormates are nice and I like most of them, but I'm around them pretty much 24/7. And several of them are really nosy, which annoys me a lot. Well, except my roommate, thankfully. I like her even though our personalities are vastly different. She's great because she never asks why my alarm goes off at 7 every Sunday or wonders why I change outfits a million times almost every morning or questions me when I'm on the internet laughing at nothing. (Although I did eventually tell her why I get up early on Sundays. I think she was surprised that I have another friend because no one on this floor has any other friends.) There's one guy who's really cool, though. I almost went shopping with him and my roommate today, but I had way too much work so I couldn't. (I have two exams on Thursday... Yuck!)

I find that my personality is vastly different than pretty much all of my friends' personalities, though. Except Cute Blonde Girl. She's way, way, wayyy more chilled out than everyone else I know, who are more like ULTRA high-energy, party-all-the-time, never-slow-down. I tried to match their energy for the first couple of weeks before realizing that it's SO not my thing. (And also that frat parties are terribly sweaty and crowded, and I have no idea why they go to them every night of every weekend. Well, free alcohol, I guess, but honestly, I found it to be much more trouble than it was worth.) Sometimes you just gotta chill and watch Netflix, you know?

And also I might have accidentally said something dumb and upset one of my floormates who I actually really like... I don't really want to go into much detail about it since I'm pretty ashamed of my behavior. I apologized soooo many times, and she said not to worry about it anymore, but she will not speak to me at all and avoids me a lot. Everyone else says she'll get over it eventually and that it wasn't really that big of a deal, but I feel bad about it.

Anyway, I didn't get to meet Cute Blonde Girl's sister. I didn't really think I would; I had planned on not seeing Cute Blonde Girl this past weekend. But after her sister left, she actually asked me to keep her company while she finished up her paper. (We had to write these hellish papers that were due on Monday. Worst paper-writing experience of my entire life. It wasn't even a long paper or anything. It was just surprisingly hard and really annoying.) I said yes, of course, even though she requested an especially early meeting since she had so much work to catch up on. Let's just say it involved me getting up before the sun... But I would never say no to hanging out with her.

So, yeah, on Saturday evening, she texted me to ask me how my paper was coming along. I told her that I'd been working on it all weekend, and she said she was so proud of me. Awww. I ended up texting her for about an hour. She said she couldn't really concentrate on her paper because she was surrounded by people loudly pre-gaming. So she decided to talk to me instead, I guess. That was pretty cool. I'm definitely not used to girls I like texting me first, that's for sure!

On Sunday, she mentioned that she doesn't really like anyone else in our class except me. She thinks a lot of them seem pretty stupid. But apparently I'm exempt from that since she wants to hang out with me. So I must be doing something right, then! Wow. We couldn't really have a long conversation this time since she was doing so much work, but I really like the fact that she still wanted me there.

I could talk to this girl literally for hours on end. She's easily the most interesting person I have ever met. Like, EVER. (And plus, she has the cutest smile, so there's also that.) I never get bored when I'm with her. Not even when I'm sitting there watching her type an essay. I find myself not even caring about the rest of the weekend, only Sunday mornings. I don't know how to describe it, but it's like she's on a whole different level than anyone else I've ever met. She's like... magical. I know that sounds lame, but I honestly cannot think of any other description that would fit her. We're all going to be reading about her curing cancer or some amazing shit like that one day. I'm calling it now.

I feel very lucky to have randomly encountered her. I literally only signed up for this class because I needed a schedule filler and it was only an hour long. Best decision I've ever made.

Sounds like...

like you've become acculturated to university life so much better than the typical freshman (freshwoman? UGH!!!).

Great!

I guess so. But at the same

I guess so. But at the same time, I don't really know because it seems like everyone has closer/more friends than me.

Thanks!

She is really amazing!! And it's pretty cool, yeah, but in order to get it you have to fight your way through a giant, tightly-packed, sweaty crowd of already drunk people hahaha. And then they run out before you can get more! (Or at least that has been my experience so far, anyway.)

I feel like voluntarily

I feel like voluntarily writing about my life on the internet is slightly different than someone trying to play 20 questions when all I want to do is get to the bathroom.

Eh...

You're in a new environment, if someone wants to play 20 questions, where is the problem? Aren't they just trying to get to know you?

The main difference is one has you controlling everything, one doesn't.
