Go on a blind date Ask someone out on a date, because who says I can't go after what I want?
Check, and check. Well, almost. I am not wasting any time at all. I am officially on the dating scene, I have never been the "dating" girl, but it's a new year and I decided that it's time to start dating. So, I asked someone out, and I will also be going on a blind date this Tuesday.
I know the blind date is the most intriguing story. I have this past student who is a great kid, he's also very tech savvy. Said student e-mails me towards the end of last semester informing me that his dad's friend was interested in taking me out. My student prefaced all this by saying that he felt out of place telling me. Awkwardness aside, I asked my student the infinite question, "How in the world does this 'friend' of your dad's even know who I am?" Apparently back in September or October when my student ran into me at Wal-Mart as I was in my gym clothes and running shoes this person was also with him. I only saw my student of course and cut the conversation as short as possible given my appearance. According to my student he could not stop asking about me since. Intrigued? Me too. I sure was flattered. To wrap this up for y'all I will just say that I immediately left my student out of it and I made the executive decision to pursue this potential blind date. This blind date has offered to make me dinner, but considering it is blind I changed its direction to meeting up for a drink at a local and neutral location. In the words of Shoshanna from Girls, you've got to meet in a public place in case he turns out to be a rapist.
It's fun, it's exciting, and it's definitely keeping my life interesting so I will keep y'all posted on the outcome of this date. If anything I have a new friend, right?
- I saw Zero Dark Thirty and it kept me on the edge of my seat the ENTIRE time.
- I ran into every student and their mom (literally) on a rainy day outing
- Said bon voyage to our dear Matt.
- Most importantly, in the words of a friend, I got drunk on LIFE.
Don't forget to watch the premiere of Girls if you didn't. I have to wait to watch it on HBOGo tomorrow night. Please don't give away any spoilers!
