Disappearance

It's been over 3 weeks since I last posted here. I swear I have a good excuse: school. Group projects and midterms have got me down, so much so that my google reader has over 1000 posts backed up that I need to read.

I have one more week of hell, then exams start. I promise I'll post something amazing when I come back!

Dating Disaster: The Bear-Dog

button

My dating disaster comes from only a year ago. I met him in the hospital, but he seemed like a nice guy so I decided to give him a chance. The first red flag should have been when he asked me to take a bus 30 minutes to see him, but I figured I wanted to go shopping in that side of the city anyway so I'd just make it a big trip.

I showed up at his apartment, a disgusting mess by the way, and was greeted by a huge furry dog. This dog jumped all over me, and knocked me over. I picked myself up and mentioned that I'm allergic to dogs, besides the fact that I also wasn't okay with some random dog attacking me at the front door. He didn't bother to do anything about it, instead telling me to sit on the couch. I sat between two huge stains, and asked him what restaurant we were going to. He then told me he was too broke to go out and that he just wanted to watch the hockey game.

I love hockey, I really do. But do I want to watch it with some random and his dog in a smelly apartment? I don't think so.

I watched it with him for about five minutes before I said I was going to go. I told him it wasn't working out and that I wasn't interested. His response? He leaned over, wrapped his arms around me, and tried to kiss me. I stood up as fast as I possibly could, and of course the dog was all over me. I walked to the door and told him I was going to the bus terminal now. He said he would walk me back, and in my stupidity I agreed to let him. 

He decided to take the bear-dog with him as he walked me the twenty minutes to the bus terminal. The sidewalk wasn't big enough for all three of us, and I kept getting wrapped up by the dog's leash. About halfway there, the dog stopped to do it's business on the grass. I think the worst part about this date was that he just decided to leave it there. I asked if he was going to pick it up, and he shrugged and said "I like ruining people's day when they step in dog shit". I kid you not!

I speed-walked to the terminal. I kind of waved good-bye to him and went to get on the bus. He grabbed him hand and pulled me in to kiss him again. I pushed him away, again, and ran onto the bus. Ugh, so gross.

And then for the next 3 months he texted me 15 times a day (at least) and called me at random times in the day. He only stopped when I called my cell carrier and had his phone blocked. Never again!

Good Morning March

Today I stumble into March. February went by super fast, I can't believe March is here already. I'm hoping March will be just as good as February, but I doubt it will be. Here are my goals for the month:

  • Pass this midterm tonight! Accounting is rough...
  • Pass my two midterms next week
  • Celebrate my birthday in style with good people
  • Complete my assignments with better results than last time
  • Try out a Meetup, they seem cool and I'm curious
  • Restart my workout routine if I stop feeling so queasy all the time
Obviously I'm setting my hopes high for March, but I think it's about time I stop coasting and actually aim for something.

And here's Luna right before she sneezed. She looks so silly, I can't help but laugh.
