I haven’t been around in a while. I know. So here’s some updates. I worked most of spring break and spent time with the girl I was (am) into since she isn’t in town very often. We saw a movie. Drank with friends. Partied.
Things get bad around the Friday of Spring Break. My friend Trevor had a blowout party at his mom’s house. I DJ’d in the basement and had a pretty good dance party going for about an hour. Then things died down and I had a girl from work coming to the party. That’s when I forget things and how they happened.
From what I have been told the girl I like(d) was sitting on my lap and my friend Jill was in the vicinity and instead of grabbing the girl I like(d) and making out with her. I grabbed Jill and made out with her. Twice. While the girl I like(d) was sitting in my lap. Also, the girl from work happened to be outside and texting me to come get her and her friend. I drunkenly told them to just walk in. They didn’t and decided to just leave.
The Saturday after all that I went to work and then out for my good friend Mel’s 21st birthday. I fucking love clubs and dancing and so does the girl I like(d). We are always dance partners. This particular night I get into the car to carpool down to the club and someone mentions the night before and I just say “Yeah. I don’t even remember anything after dancing downstairs.” Girl replies, “Yeah, well you made out with Jill.” Ouch. Burn. No worries though. Brush it off.
So we get to the club and get with our group of people. See that there is a kid there from high school who knows the entire history between me and the girl in question and still pursues her. Get a few drinks. Mend a few wounds between friends. Head to the dance floor.
For the first few songs I dance with the girl. Afterward kid from high school decides to creep his way in. I don’t care. Dance with whoever you want we aren’t dating or anything of the sort. Since she was dancing with him I went and danced with my friend Mel’s sister Miranda. We had a good time dancing most of the night.
At the end of the night I head home with the girl, our friend Jess, and my best friend Trevor. Me and the girl are holding hands the entire way home and I was pretty drunk once again and passed out on her shoulder. We get to the house and I go to give her a kiss goodnight and she gives me a very stern “No.” Well, that was another red flag in a series of red flags but not the last. That is still to come.
Sunday is recovery day and I spend it working and hanging out with Mel. Monday rolls around and it’s back to school. Mel stops by and I’m sitting there playing around with DJ stuff and I get a text from the girl. It goes a little something like this…
Her: Hey wats up?
Me: Chillin, messin with some dj software
Her: Sounds like fun
Me: Yeah, I’m still figuring it out :P
Her: Ic hey i jus wanted 2 say i am sorry if i made u mad on sat
Me: You didn’t make me mad
Her: Ok i was jw cause i saw u and john staring each other down
Pause. Are you really that full of yourself? Honestly? I don’t know how anyone can be like that. Play.
Me: Wtf? When did that happen?
Her: I wasnt keepin track of the time but i took trev and went 2 the dance floor
Pause. Ok, whatever. I’m done with this. Not responding. Play.
Her: I jus dont want 2 b fought over is all i am saying
Pause. REALLY?! Play.
Her: Ok i was jus checking is all
That was the end of it. I was done. I don’t know how I was ever attracted to someone that was ever so full of themselves. That thrived on drama that much. That is absolutely the last thing I fucking want right now. I work too hard and go to school too much to have to worry about this kind of bullshit.
Thursday rolls around and Melanie, Miranda, Mike, Jess, Katie, and myself all go to the bars cause Mel can’t stop drinking for one night during her 21st birthday week. While at the bars I get a text from you know who.
Her: Hey jw next friday do u maybe want 2 go c she’s outta my league?
Me: We’ll see
Her: K let me kno
Her: U ok?
Me: Ya, I just don’t know my schedule yet
Her: Ok if u need 2 talk or ne thing let me kno
I am fine! I just want to be out with my friends and not be bothered with this petty stuff that you’re going to turn it into. I don’t bother you when you are out up at State. Just stop.
So that was a good night. I like Mel’s sister Miranda. We had some good heart-to-heart conversations. I just hope Mel doesn’t do something stupid like I know she’s going to do in the next few months. It’s inevitable. That girl is a sister to me and I don’t want her to fuck up.
So Friday comes and goes. I work. Whatever. Then Saturday. I had a morning meeting at work and then afterward my friend Shawn and I went to Guitar Center to look at some of the DJ equipment. Went to the mall and then to the comic shop. I scouted some books that I’m going to pick up on Friday when I get paid. I’m super fucking stoked.
That night I got the balls to ask the girl from work, Mandee, if she wanted to go grab some food or something. She said yes and we went out and had some gyro’s cause she had never had one before. Then we went and got free Rita’s cause it was the first day of Spring. Went back to my place and had some alone time and watched a movie. I found out she’s actually pretty cool and we get along really well. As much as I hate work relationships and how sticky they get we’ll see where this one takes me.
During the entire time Mandee and I were out the other girl would no stop texting me. All of my friends at this point are sick of it and hate what she is doing to me and how she is leading me on and what not. Here is some of that conversation. I tried to let it die while getting the useful information. You’ll see.
Her: I jus found the best mixer 4 vodka
Me: What’s that?
Her: Minute maid fruit punch lol
Me: That would be good (1)
Her: It would we should try it we would be fucked up
Her: So wat r u up 2 tonite?
Me: Just hanging out (2)
Her: Sounds fun. No partying lol
Me: Nope (3)
Her: We getting hammered 4 jess’s bday?
Me: Did you even need to ask that?
Her: No but i need to make sure my dance partner is as drunk as me :)
Me: Well of course
Her: I gotta catch up to u guys
Me: How do you figure?
Her: U guys drank a lot more than me over the summer
Me: I guess you got a point (4)
Her: Yeh tho i do have a lot of fun when i drink now :)
Finally it was over. Mandee and I had a great night. I got things from Mandee on the first night of hanging out that I hadn’t gotten with this girl in months and months of hanging out. Why was I wasting my time?
A few days later the girl wanted me to skip my Wednesday classes and go to State for a beer pong tournament on Tuesday night. No, I party more than the next guy but that is too much money, too much driving, and too much of a grade risk to be going without getting anything in return other than a cold shoulder and someone who isn’t even that interested in me.
Then we come to today. Where I thought Mandee might have wanted to come hang out but she blew me off. She said she wanted to but then didn’t respond to any of my texts and I ended up spending the night alone. I just need to find that girl that is a nice balance between these two and that would be amazing.
I forgot how nice it is to just put this shit out there. Other fun things you missed. I got a raise at work and dropped one of my night classes because I couldn’t take the 18.5 credit workload.
No guy dislikes going home smelling like girl after spending the night with the girl he is into at that given moment in time. There is something about how a girl smells that no other scent can compare to in the entire world. It’s one of the most amazing things in the world.
I had everything planned out perfectly and then her mom fractured her hip. Our plans gotten postponed until tomorrow. This sucks because I already have plans for tomorrow so tomorrow is going to be quite busy and today is going to be extremely boring.
Please excuse me while I throw-up and pass out.
