7/7.

I think I did my best bullshitting job ever. The quiz in stats on thursday last week? Every single one of us thought we completely bombed it. Somehow, i got 21/25. The girl next to me got that too. And we actually made up the same bullshit answer for 2 of the questions. The one, I just twisted the question into a statement and somehow, it was the right answer.

How did I pull that off? Not a damn clue.

After class, I went over to my cousin Becky's so I could give her kids their birthday presents I got them. Owen was excited over his aquadoodle, it's travel sized so you can take it in the car. Emmalyn was napping so she didn't get hers yet, Becky said she'll keep it back until I come over again so I can see her open it. It's a soccer ball thing that sings and talks, says colors and numbers. Owen kept telling me to get in the pool, lol. Not this time, I said I'll come back next week and swim with him in their pool.

This guy Elliott that I've been talking to on the dating site, we're clicking so well, and are planning to meet soon. We're thinking we'll spend a weekend together, so we can get to know each other in person. I know there's always a risk and concern of safety when doing something like this, which is why I'll meet him somewhere public first. And I'm also going to constantly be texting my best friend and let her know where I am, what's going, and just make sure she knows exactly where I'll be.

Wrote out the things I want to say to Justin, and I took it into Kristen today and asked her to read through them and see that I have them phrased the right way so they don't come off as attacking. She helped me rephrase some of them. So at this point, I know that my words are correct, and I do have to make sure I deliver the words in an upbeat and light tone, not dire and serious, but if he gets angry and upset about the actual words, that's his problem and I can't do anything about that.

Either way, overall I'm quite happy.

      We’re 3 hours apart, he’s the perfect physical appearance to me, and he’s intelligent. Like he types like an adult. He’s in college to become an elementary school teacher because he wants to be a positive role model to young boys, and he wants to go to grad school for special education because he has a brother who’s visually impaired and he wants to focus on physical handicaps since everyone else seems to bring awareness of the mental handicaps

          Yeah, he really does. I just hope something good will come out of this, and that he is the person he says he is.

    Often the answer to a question is contained in the question itself. The kids… how wonderful! But the e-date… please, please, please be careful. A weekend might to too much for the first date. Please don’t become a statistic.

      We haven’t decided anything, we’re just throwing out ideas. And regardless of how long we meet, I’m going to be in constant contact with a few friends and they’ll know exactly where I’ll be. I’d never sneak off to meet someone from online without telling someone first. No matter how much I wanna run into things, I do have all the thoughts in my mind about being careful

        Just be careful. Being in contact with others… well if something happens and you are gone that will help not at all. Seriously… you have to take chances or never progress… but do be careful.

          I will definitely be careful and use caution. Just because he sounds perfect, doesn’t mean he would be in person

            Yes. It really does not speak to the real him. Nothing is gained without risk. You are doing right… but still in this age you need to protect yourself. Not like 40 years ago when whacko’s were almost unheard of.

              Yeah, I just can’t dismiss him without meeting him. Even though some crazy horror stories happen from meeting online people, you still have the stories where people find their perfect match with online dating. I did google him lol, nothing came up.

    Our daily routine becomes a mess when there is no charm and newness. The job is although mention in best essay service a basic need to survive happily but still the same boring job make an individual feed up. The little adventures are what which makes us alive so make a room for them.
