Oh, hey. Remember me? I used to write a blog here, and then my life got taken over by finals, schools, boys, family drama, basically any excuse you could think of. But I'm back! I survived finals, made it through the road trip back home, enjoyed my week or so of doing nothing, had a nice family weekend, and started work. So lots of things have been happening! I haven't just been hiding out under my bed or anything. I've honestly just been overwhelmed with everything going on, and instead of resorting to the one thing that has been my main outlet this past year. But summer is the time for catching up on things? Why not. With that being said, I have really high expectations for this summer and in order to turn those expectations into an incredible summer, I have a Summer To Do List.

  • Brunch, all the brunch.
  • Tacos!
    • Blue Plate Tacos
    • Guisados
    • Guerrilla Tacos
    • Colonia Taco Lounge
    • Corazon y Miel
    • Taco Maria
    • Mexicali & Taco Co.
  • Other restaurants
    • Salt's Cure
    • Sqirl
    • Little Sister
  • Disneyland, multiple times
    • And Disneyland with "the boy"
  • Road trip to SF
  • Sex in the City or Friends or any other show you might recommend (preferably that is on Netflix)
  • Griffith Observatory
  • Make sangria
  • Get a decent tan, please.
What's your summer to-do list? I'll also be working at a summer camp and have the occasional weekend trip with my family!

I'm Dating A Vampire

Monday, May 12, 2014

The facts all line up. It makes sense. I've decided. "The boy" is a vampire. Either that or an alien, but I don't know how to prove that, except for if his blood is green, which is how Erika said you can tell, but I don't know that.

Also, if he is a vampire, he isn't like Edward Cullen, he's like the Salvatores. But he doesn't wear a ring or anything.. so there's flaws, but the first time he came over, I had to invite him in for him to come inside. Coincidence? I think not.

Thankfully, I gave the majority of my reasons on Twitter, so let's use those:
Okay, here it goes...

This morning he came over after his interview, because supposedly last week when he told me about his interview I told him to come over after. I'm sorry, that was last week. It is finals. I didn't realize that was a thing, like I say something once and it's a go. But clearly that's how his mind works, so okay. 

The only time I've actually witness him eat was at the Giants game and even then we just got like stadium food/snacks and shared. But like he's told me he was going to eat or just ate before! Like he has asked me what he should get for lunch at least three times. And he always chooses normal places! Like he's gone to in n out or wing stop! 

But then today, I hinted that I was going to get food with my friends and he was like well I'm getting lunch with my brother before class. So then are they both vampires?! 
I haven't met the brother before so I don't have evidence for that one.

I brought this up to my parents when I wanted to et brunch on Saturday but he said he ate a big dinner the night before, like I wake up hungry even after big dinners because that's like 9 hours later.. And my dad told me that guys are normally always hungry, not like hungry but like they'll always eat, which has been my previous experience even with just like guy friends!

And then the last time he had work in the afternoon so I offered to make him food. I WAS GOING TO COOK FOR HIM! And he still said no...

So this is my current reasoning. That and it makes sense why he doesn't really talk about his past. Like he's told me about his past but there's gaps.. I wonder why.... Okay, or maybe he just doesn't want to eat in front of me because he's a picky eater, but I already knew that. My favorite food is tacos. He likes tacos. Will someone tell this guy to just take me out to eat tacos?! Or any food? Like we can order a plain cheese pizza. I won't complain at this point.

I should probably go finish my finals/essays. I just can't not think about this now. What do you think?
Also- update: still haven't met his family but he met my roommate today!

Also, thank goodness he doesn't have a Twitter, I don't know what I would do.

So he wants me to meet the friends and family...

Friday, May 9, 2014

We all know I've never had a real boyfriend. This being said, the only two guys that I have ever liked enough to even think about having that as an option met my parents because we were friends first or because he came over to my house to work on a project.

Because of this, I have never been taken home to a guy's parents. Yes I met contestant #1's mom and dad but at his birthday party, and he had already met my parents, and contestant #2 basically called my mom "mom" and I didn't meet his family until graduation, graduation. And that was only because I like went up to him so it would've been super awkward had he not introduced me. I also kind of hated him at the time, but that is another story in and of itself.

So my mom comes up next Friday to pick me up, and she wants to meet him. Understandable seeing as we've been "dating"/"talking" for about two months, right? I don't know the answer to these questions which is why I am blogging. Like is this too soon? Anyways, he probably had work so that might not even be the case, but then last night he told me his brother and his brother's girlfriend want to meet me. I think I could do that! Like it isn't like I would be meeting his brother, brother's girlfriend, and parents all at once, and he said he wouldn't do that to me either way. *Progression*

But now he's planning a trip down to Disneyland and wants me to go and, granted I might have work and won't be able to go at all, but I also might be able to escape for one day and be able to just go down for a few hours. The magic of a season pass. Back to the questions/story. Is this too soon? I have no experience in this whatsoever. And yes, he told me that they will all love me and think that I'm as great as he's told them I am but THIS IS STRESSFUL.

How soon do you think it is to meet the friends? Meet the family?
I want him to meet my friends, and they want to meet him, it's just that timing never works out. Okay so help. What should I do? I mean of course I want to meet them, but this is nerve wrecking, even though I told him I wasn't nervous.

Thanks for listening to my Friday rant. You're all amazing.

On Wednesdays I go on museum dates

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

I'm starting this post by saying that I actually really like day-dates. Is that a thing? It should be a thing. Regardless, today I had a day-date. Have I given the guy I'm dating a name yet? I think I did but that makes it seem like it isn't a real thing and if you follow me on Instagram I tag him in things, so it doesn't make sense to make a fake name.
Anyways, he came over this morning, and let me just start by saying that he was supposed to come over at 10:30 and so I set my alarm for 9:01. This would give me time to slowly wake up, check the social medias, and then leisurely get ready so I wouldn't be stressed or anxious. Right? NO. He texted me at like 9:20, right after I had just washed my face and brushed my teeth, "Just left the house, should be there around 10." Excuse me, WHAT?! Commence panic attack. I responded to his text with "OMG" to which he probably thought I didn't think he was actually coming over, or something else because he responded with "what?" I told him I was getting ready. I mean I was beginning to get ready, but that's the same thing right? After rushing to get ready, he texted me and told me I had time because he got stuck in traffic. Panicked for nothing, what else is new? He got here a little after 10, but I was ready so it was fine. We hung out in my apartment for a little bit and then headed over to the Presidio because we're both Disney fans so obviously we had to go to the Disney Family Museum.
I honestly had so much fun, like we're past the awkward like "do we hold hands?" or "omg he put his arm around me" and it was super natural and comfortable. For a museum date, let's just say it was perfect. And the fact that it was Disney made it that much better. Yes, that is what I instagrammed, and he posted a similar picture too. My mom wanted us to take a picture in the Presidio because, hi that would have been adorable, and we only have one picture together, but we didn't so now it's just an excuse to go back. And then he left because he had class, but he got stuck in traffic and didn't go. And I was sad because we could have been cute and spent the day together, but it's okay, I had work anyways. 

Minor story time: In the museum, there's a huge window where you can see the golden gate bridge and I was standing in front of it and then realized he was trying to take a picture, so I apologized, and went to get out of the way. He looked super confused and I was like what? He wanted to take a picture of me not looking and then have the bridge in the background. I thought it was super cute, aha. But overall it was a lot of fun so yay to another successful date!

Also, random side note, this was my horoscope today:

"A date with a significant other could bring up discussions about plans for the future, Virgo. Talk could run the gamut of all your concerns, from the practical to the artistic to business to philosophical matters. The overall impact of this might be that it brings the two of you closer together. You might decide to partner on some kind of creative project."

And like, we talked about what we're going to do over summer... like that's kind of scary. My horoscope is usually super vague. Not this time. Kinda creepy. But the talk we had was actually really good and it's weird because usually it's hard to talk about the "what are we" or "what is this" but with him it's super easy, and we're both on the same page so it's not that awkward of a conversation to have.

So yes, that was my day! Besides this the only thing going on in my life is finals, so this is what I decide to blog about. Sorry not sorry.

Hope you had a fantastic Wednesday!

Roller Coasters

Friday, May 2, 2014

Yesterday was a roller coaster of emotions, to say the least. I had super high expectations because I was hanging out with the boy I like and so of course I was excited. But no day is just full of excitement. I had two presentations, one of which was part of my final for that class.

Yesterday morning I got a phone call from my mom that my dad needed to go to the hospital for a spinal procedure. Everything went well but it's hard being here and not being able to be there in case anything went wrong or just even for support. Luckily, that's not what happened, and I talked to my dad last night and he sounded great.

My two presentations went flawlessly, and for my second one, my professor used me as an example for people presenting next week. I'll take whatever compliments I can get.

I was planning on having a date with the guy that my last post was about, but he wasn't responding to my texts and I got really restless so I went over to Angie's to help her with her apartment. After cleaning and Lysol-ing the entire place, he texted me back. Date number 2/Hangout number 4 consisted of watching movies in a study room on campus... Like is this what a college date is? We then decided, after the fact, I might add, that we should have gotten In N Out, but we didn't. Regardless of where we were, I still had fun because I got to hang out with him. So cheesy, I know.

But can we talk about how AWKWARD I am?
1) I poked him in the eye
2) I kept asking if he was comfortable because I wasn't and I didn't know how to position myself in the chair while also being able to semi cuddle with him. This is not an easy task like hi these are classroom chairs.
3) I laugh at moments when I'm not supposed to laugh because I'm really awkward
4) I kept talking during the movie and he had to rewind it at least 3 times
5) I was eating popcorn but it was gross but it got stuck in my teeth and he thought I was having a tooth ache but I was just trying to get the popcorn kernel out of my tooth
6) I didn't know what to do with my legs but then again I blame the classroom and the chair I had my les on for being uncomfortable
7) I'm sure there were more awkward moments but I can't think of them right now

I think I said sorry more than anything last night because I kept apologizing for my awkwardness. This is why I don't date. But whatever, we has the talk and it looks like he might be here for awhile so clearly my awkwardness isn't that bad.

Now that you've gotten through my date (is this even considered a date? I don't know but why not) story, here's a giveaway!!!
