I think my mom is adjusting to that as well, since dad is usually home late from work and we used to cook dinner together most nights. She was thrilled that I was there to cook Thanksgiving dinner with her. Think she got you any good Christmas presents while she was out shopping? I’ve been doing my best to keep calm, carry on, and gulp down cup after cup of coffee to get me through the next couple of weeks. Of course it does, did you have any doubts?
I’m starting to believe that empty nest syndrome is actually a thing from the way some of our parents react to us being gone. I just hope she’ll find a boyfriend or someone to keep her busy so she isn’t constantly asking me when I’m coming home next, but it’s nice that you got to make dinner with your mom. That’s much sweeter than anything that happened in my house on Thanksgiving. Probably. She already tried to give me a bunch of things to bring back to New Haven because she doesn’t understand it’s impossible to take things back on a plane. Before we know it we’ll all be back in Lima and enjoying a much deserved break from classes. It’s just going to be nice to be home for longer than a few days and not having to worry about getting up for class.
No doubt bout it.
You probably shouldn’t be so confident.
I think that might be part of learning to love yourself too. It just seems like there’s a difference between knowing that you’re lucky to have the poele that you do, and wondering why they could see anything good in you at all. Maybe I don’t know you well enough, but I know you’ve got a boyfriend and a lot of friends all who love you. The clearly see that you’re worth it even if you always don’t. The difficult part must not be all that bad.
Yeah, I’m not exactly the best person to be talking to about loving yourself. I’ll admit that I’ve gotten better since I’ve gotten out of high school, but I’m probably nowhere near where I should be. It’s not really something you can learn to do overnight so it’s a constant work in progress. I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs with all of them because of the stupid things that I decide to do. I’ll be the first to admit that everyone screws up, but most people don’t screw up in such colossal ways like I do.
I am sure you could pull off the bow tie look if you really wanted to. Believe in yourself, Quinn. Why would any teacher ever want to offer a class at 7am? That has got to fall under cruel and unusual punishment somehow. I mean, 7?! That’s crazy. College isn’t supposed to be worse than high school. It’s just not.
I think I’ll definitely leave the bow ties to Blaine and stick with my usual attire You can’t really go wrong with classically cut dresses and wedge shoes, right? At the very least I look like the way society says all women should look, but I don’t really know if that’s a good thing or not. I think it’s part of their effort to make sure students aren’t getting drunk every single night. I’m not really sure it works based on the amount of people who don’t show or show up looking terrible.
Yes. I’m not going to act like I’m perfectly happy with it, but compared to where it was a few years ago it’s completely different. I spent most of my time hating my body and picking out every single time flaw in it that I didn’t bother to be thankful for the things that my body did. After my accident it sort of changed the way I view my body is a very drastic way and I’ve realized those little flaws aren’t that big of a deal.
Already know that you do.
Are you completely positive?
There’s no need for you to go to that trouble. You’ll be well looked after, don’t worry.
It’s not that, I just don’t want to intrude on either of your time together or make you feel like you have to take us in.
I think my dad said something like that after he realized I had Perdy, but he got over it quickly. It makes a lot of sense though. Aw, I would say poor Puck but I find that absolutely hilarious. Yay! I can not wait! That’s not terribly far away, woo. Wow, you’re going to be here for a good chunk of time then, that’s great! You can get in some quality family and friend time.
I think a lot of people change their minds once they actually get the chance to be around animals. It’s kind of hard to ignore how cute they are no matter how much you think you might dislike them. He doesn’t find it nearly as funny as I do, but I think that’s part of why it’s so funny. Plus Jack is adorable so it’s impossible to stay mad at him. I’m looking forward to it, too. It’ll be nice with everyone off from class.
Please refrain from ever calling me that again.
Is there something wrong with men wearing boots? I think I take back the last question being the most random thing and apply it to this one. They make men’s boots for a reason and I have absolutely no feeling towards them wearing them.
