Professor Thomas & Bear Hugs

Professor Thomas wasn't at dinner tonight. Normally, that wouldn't bother me, but I really needed him tonight. When I'm stressed or having an issue about something, I can always count on him to read my mind; maybe not to know WHY I'm stressed, but to know that I just need a little extra love and affection. He always knows just when to wrap me up in one of those big, warm bear hugs of his, and for a minute, I finally feel as though the world is no longer ending.

Okay....So, I'm Often Oblivious...

...when it comes to guys. But, today, cute guy called me to ask about a "homework assignment" that he clearly needed no help on. (I was supposed to call him today, but I was mad--a story for another day). While we're on the phone, he proceeds to complain about how he's sick and acts like a total baby. (For the record, I felt really bad for him...he made it sound like he was dying). However, I had something worse like two weeks ago, and I didn't complain even half as much as he did! But, okay, back to the story....He's having trouble with his classes because he simply has too much work. So, I offered to be his study buddy. (It's Shakespeare--I LOVE that guy :P) and.....this is the important part......he told me "no," because I'd be too distracting. And when I asked if that was a good thing or a bad thing, he said, "No, no....it's a good thing. It's a very good thing." The girls think that means he likes me.....like really, really likes me. What do you guys think? Please remember, I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to guys....I can be pretty thick about their signals. All readers are welcome to respond...although, I would like to ask my gentleman readers in particular to please enlighten me!

Dear Cute Boy...

...I love when you find silly reasons just to hug me. I love it when you chase me, and when you act silly just to see me smile. You're adorable when you're oblivious, and you have the cutest smile. Your clueless expression is incredibly endearing, and my heart does little flip-flops when you tell me I'm beautiful. You are wonderful :)

Happy Fedora Day!

February 14th is commonly known as Valentine's Day, but this year, a group of us decided to change things up a bit. You see, Valentine's Day is a couples holiday. Exchanges of roses, chocolates, and all kinds of cute, romantic treats are made between a smitten guy and girl....but what about all those single people? For us, sometimes, Valentine's Day can be a bit awkward, as we watch our friends and family members get showered in reminders of how wonderful they are. And please, don't think we are jealous! It's not that at all....it's just that we want to get involved as well. So, Rachel invented Fedora Day. How does that work? Well, all the single ladies (sorry, guys....none of the gentlemen in our group are participating right now) get dressed up, look awesome, and wear fedoras. Just so that we stand out a bit and look cool. We're not anti-Valentine's Day....in fact, any of us would be more than happy to have a Valentine...but, we want to be able to get dressed up and make ourselves look pretty, even if there isn't any guy to do it for. If all goes well, I think Fedora Day is going to become a tradition!

Why is He So Wonderful?

So....I introduced my new boy to the rest of the group the other day at lunch....and they loved him! I was hoping they would....because I really wanted my friends to approve of my love interests. (They didn't like Willoughby or Odysseus). And apart from that, we've been spending almost every day together....and when we don't see each other, usually, one of us will call the other.

When I'm with him, I don't feel butterflies like I did with the other guys (Neo, Willoughby, Odysseus), but I feel really, really comfortable with him. I feel like I could tell him anything, and just act like myself; there is no fear of trying to impress him. It just feels right.

Why does he have to be so wonderful? Why does he have to make me feel so good inside? Sometimes, I wonder if this is just another joke; and I wonder if I'd be able to deal with that happening again. Honestly, if this was just a joke as well; a cosmic prank focused on one insignificant person....well...let's not worry about that. It's not easy for me to open up to anyone because I've been hurt. And I don't want to get hurt again.

Valentine Gifts?

First off, I want to apologise for not writing for a while....I've been very busy with schoolwork, and this past week, I got a nasty bout of the flu that had me out of commission for a couple of days. But, now, I have some semi-good news.....Okay, so I met this amazing guy in one of my classes, and I really like him. We watch movies together, hang out, call or email almost every day. I get the impression that he likes me, too, which is great, but from past experiences, I want to make sure to take things slowly so I don't get hurt over something that never was. Well, here's my question....I want to do a little something for him for Valentine's Day....what would you guys suggest? Nothing over-the-top or anything....I don't want to come on too strong just yet. I just want something sweet and simple. Do you have any suggestions?
