This is going to be quick because it’s already 10:20 and I have to be awake at 5 am for work.
This weekend was really nice.
Saturday changed a bit. I didn’t sleep well Friday night, so I woke up tired and sore from kickboxing. I called Jon and asked if we could change out kayaking for going for a walk instead. He said that was fine. Since there wasn’t a time frame anymore I did my grocery shopping before heading to Daytona.
We went for a three-mile walk where I got sunburnt complete with raccoon eyes from my sunglasses. We talked a lot about mom while we were walking. I’m grateful that I have him to talk to. I like how we both are able to talk about her and not feel bad about doing it. We don’t feel guilty or like we’re making the other person feel bad by talking about death. It’s comforting to be able to talk freely it someone about it.
We worked on his essay once we got back to his apartment. I feel like it’s a billion times better than what it was.
I came home around 6ish but didn’t do a whole lot. I was still super tired from the lack of sleep and being sunburnt didn’t help anything.
I slept off and on last night which was sort of frustrating.
I woke up at 6 am this morning despite the restless sleep and went running with Big Bad. That was a lot of fun. We got to spend about an hour sitting together outside talking. There’s a really big oak tree near the trail we go to. We sat under it, me leaning against him, my head on his chest, his arms wrapped around me as we talked.
It was everything I was hoping for and needed. It was that connection that has felt missing. We both thoroughly enjoyed our time together and have plans to see each other again Friday evening.
We mentioned how it might be harder in the future for our schedules to line up with both of us working and being busy, but we agreed we would make it work one way or another. It’s reassuring that we’ve broached this topic because it’s something I’ve been thinking about since I accepted the position.
After we parted ways I came home and began cooking my meals for the coming week. I actually got all of it done before heading out to have lunch with Nicole. It was nice to catch up with her.
The subject of Warren came up so I talked about that. I have an idea of how I want to handle the situation, but for now, I’ll leave it at that rather than going into details. I want to have a conversation with him first and from there we’ll see how things go.
I played StarCraft II with Jason and Jon for a little bit today. We got completely thrashed by the AI in our first two matches. It was incredibly sad. The third match was pretty awesome though, so at least we ended on a good note.
I’ve finished up doing laundry. I’ve written a letter to Nasse. I’ve made flashcards for most of chapter two…
Yeah… pretty productive day. I’m happy with it.
Now it’s off to bed for me.
Oh! Before I forget. My direct deposit worked so I got paid on Friday. Woohoo. Now if only I could get my roommate to pay rent…
Alright. Nite nite.
