I Have a Crush

EEEEEEEEEEEIEIEIEIEEEEEEEEEEEEIIIIIIIII!!!!!! Oh man, I have a crush. A big crush. I haven't had this big of a crush since Dr. Danger. And even that crush kind of didn't count because I was so nervous & reserved about myself the whole time. Know what? This time I'm going to actively try not to be so much.

I'm going to let my guard down.

Yes, I realize that this could mean the end of me. Doesn't work out, I may as well permenantly (or at least for like a month) hang up my boots & call it a day. Hello Vermont. Hello barn cats. Hello milking cows. Hello horseback riding. Hello farming. Hello artificial insemination.

Actually, that all doesn't sound too bad, eh?

But for now, I'm riding this wave. D asked me out last night after talking for quite a while. He's sweet. And so cute. And funny. And laughed at my dumb jokes. And british. And really, really smart. And really, really liked Cat's Cradle.

How am I ever going to sit through 4 hours of Public Health Policy tonight?

Another First

1st day at BU. Just got home from class. Need to be up in 8.5 hours. I'm sleepy.


Sunday, September 13, 2009


Mmmmmm...... Just got back from another Cape weekend & I can say with confidence that this one far better than the last. We ran, sat on the beach, read, laughed, made amazing food, laughed, did gymnastics (or at least I did & might have been missed by the others) & enjoyed each other's company. (did i mention laughing?) To be honest, we all stayed relatively drunk the entire time & I decided last night in my stupor that sleeping without pants was a great idea. This morning I awoke at the insanely early hour of 5 a.m. since I was the first to bed by far. At one point around midnight, I woke up to late night laughter & thought "I should go join the party". Then "nah, I'll just put on pants & go back to sleep" won out. Hopefully no one saw my bum. When I finally did wake up to get water Jason was sprawled out on the living room floor. Ha! Cold hard apparently works for everyone.

Good news is that my biostats homework for this week is done & despite years of not practicing, I can still do some pretty spectacular math problems after a bottle of wine. Go brain!

But for some bad news, one of the sweetest, most honest people I've met & clicked with in a while is moving at the end of the month to be with his boyfriend in Dallas. Jonathan will certainly leave a hole in our hearts with his physical absence but hopefully move back soon.

No stress stomach aches for over a week now. No panic attacks. No uncontrollable crying. No toothbrushing spurring involuntary vomiting. A smile on my face.

Maybe that's why the absolutely adorable waiter, D is what we'll call him, at Upstairs kinda hit on me Monday evening. He asked to take me up on my offer of lending him Cat's Cradle (it was much cuter than that). Guess who has a crush!

Saturday night lights....or something

Dinner at the Cellar. Hello tater tots! (not as good as the Skylark but they have the 3 dipping sauces so that puts them in a league of their own). Then we walk across the street to Middle East & listen to Cymbals Eat Guitars, someone I can't remember & The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

My dates: Physics John (he's in for the weekend from his snazzy new postdoc position at NYU) & Corina!!!!! Bring on the free High Lifes.....sister's wearing out a short skirt!

Two Weeks Notice

Guess who gave their 2 weeks. Guess who'll hopefully not have to be pummeled with work in 3 weeks. Guess who won't be working in a machine in 3 weeks. Guess who's finally calmed down after freaking out about Biostats, but was reassured after the first one. Guess who'll have a nice night's sleep tonight without the looming 3 a.m. mental wake up call of what needs to be done tomorrow.

Hello BU. Hello tuition reimbursement. Hello less workload. Hello a small department. Hello less commuting all over Boston.

Looks like I belong on the Southside of cities.
