It can be very hard to be the one person in a group of friends who has their boyfriend here with them. The coursemates I have become friends with do have boyfriends (or kinda-boyfriends) but they are either back home in their respective country or MIA. Mine on the other hand is down the hall (through a crapton of doors), up a flight of stairs and then through one of those annoying coded doors. But he’s within the same building/zipcode/city/country/whatever.
I know what it’s like to be on this side of the equation now. Usually I’m on the other side watching the friend with her boyfriend. It’s weird. I try to be a good girl and not get all googly eyed when they’re around. I ain’t cutting back on my hugs though. NUH UH! I lurv me some huggin’.
On the note of school, our guest lecturer today for Trees (he did both 2 hour lecture slots = 4 hours of fun!) and my hand is KILLING me from writing a total of 8 pages of notes. HOLY CRAP. I don’t remember having to panic about notes that much since Ecology. I guess people who are nuts about trees just run their powerpoints like that. ARGH!
I’m opting out of seeing The Mikado tonight in lieu of trying to do some work and relaxing a tiny bit. We’ll see if that works at all. *sigh*
