LIfe as of 10/29/07

Here are some updates on my life as of now.

1. It's officially been said in words that Hollywood and I are 100% completely over. I have been living this last month with those "maybe we can try again" and "maybe he still wants me" feelings. I asked him earlier tonight if we were completely over and he said "I guess so". I couldn't get a straight answer out of him for anything, so I translated the "i guess so" into a "I want you to ask me to try again." My self esteem is not low enought to be running after a man, so yeah, this situation is dropped. I don't want to be cool. I don't want t be friends. I just want the situation to go away.

2. I got my damn raise. A whole fucking 3 percent raise. But guess what happened? My fucking social security taxes went up by 3 percent also. I can't win for losing.

3. I went on a date Saturday. Dude (i'll wait before he gets a nickname) picked me up, we went to lunch, a walk in the park, and he dropped me off at home where he got a peck on the lips. The only problem is that he had 3 phone conversations while we were together and I think that he is already in heavy like. That's kinda a turn off, but i will see what happens. I hate to have to tell a brotha to slow down.

4. I'm gonna register to take the GMAT. I just need to set the appointment to take it and pay the money. I don't want to fork over a couple of hundred dollars, but this is the first step to getting in to graduate school for the MBA that I want.

5. It's damn near midnight, so that's all that I can think of. That and the fact that nothing has really been happening in my life.

1) i feel you on that one. don't chase his ass, he'll recognize your value when he meets the next guy.

2) congrats! man celebrate the victories, because sometimes they are few and far between.

3) way to get back into it. and if he's catching feelings after a few convo's, that's not a good sign.

4) DO IT!

5) take your ass to bed. sometimes nothing going on is something good.

1) Yeah he's being a bit wishy washy. If anything, I think he may be the one trying to get back with you. So stay away..:-)

2) Well damn.

3) Yeah you know how I feel about that phone thing, especially on the first date. I think you might have to tell a brotha to slow it down..*LOL*.

4) Ouch on the cost...but it should be worth it.

5) Hey. Stuff is happening..:-)

I like your GMAT idea - that's definitely future looking in multiple ways - 1) It improves your career prospects to get you somewhere you might get better than a 3% raise, 2) It gives you a goal to work toward, 3) Working on a new degree program gives you an opportunity to go back to school and in a mix of other young, like-minded guys, 4) It gets you looking forward instead of back.

Very good plan.
