This morning, my friends left. It was sad to see them go since we spent a good weekend together. I can see why some people get emotional for the goodbyes. I didn’t but I had a feeling of longing for them to stay more. Reality hits and work happens. The weekend is over and life begins anew.
DR and his cute friend were still here. DR also had another one of his friends come — the friend that was going to another pharmacy school in town. He came last night and played some games with us. I woke up to him sleeping on the cold tile with no blankets and a stuffed animal as a pillow. The new roommate (UR2) was still here. I went on FB and looking around and a pharmacy student at our school was giving away free furniture. I immediately called and said we would take the couch, ottoman and desks. Fortunately, UR2 had a U-Haul and we were able to pick it up easily with the truck and with everyone still there at our house for free labor! This was a definite score on my part! We put the couch in the back entertainment room, which we designated the lounging room and the front living room as more of a study area, since we put the desks there.
Everyone left in the house and I decided to go eat at a dumpling place nearby. The food was delicious but came out in rounds. My food came out last and I was almost full from trying everyone else’s food already. It was a good meal and I will definitely be going back to try other things. Its a busy place so the wait is kind of long so when I go back, it’ll be with a smaller party.
When we got back, DR’s pharmacy friend went home. UR2 had an extra mattress so he said that I could use it until my bed arrives, which was nice of him. My bed comes in two days. DR and his friend were playing the guitar for hours and jamming out to songs while I sat on the couch and listened. They were pretty good at the guitar. The singing can be worked on but it was still nice to listen to. They left around sunset and my ex was on his way to come visit for the night. Thank goodness I scored a mattress to sleep on! He came and said he would take me out for a dinner date. He Yelped something good nearby and it was a cajun/seafood restaurant. We ordered one of those dishes where they boil a lot of seafood with spices and you just dig in and grab what you want. It was a lot of food for two of us but we were able to eat it all! I’m so proud of us. After we came back to the house and without tv or internet, we talked for a bit before having sex on the mattress. We had sex twice before going to bed. He had to leave early in the morning so we tried to get as much sleep as possible. At five in the morning, he left and my visits from my hometown would be done for a while. It was nice to see him, and get some action, but it would be a lonely week without anyone familiar to hang out with soon.
Can we start school yet? I’m sure once school starts, I’ll be saying the exact opposite.
