So now I'm upset, so I text Tim and tell him about the conversation. He doesn't like it any better than I do, but what are we going to do about it? I tell him I don't care what anybody thinks, I love him and that's what matters. Even if he does make me mad occasionally. He replies, "Occasionally??" Haha, it's true, he does tend to average about once a month. But it's always about the same thing, and he IS learning. Compared to 2008 when I was upset with him 75% of the time, he got it down to 50% and right now he's holding at about 20%. So I'd say that's a DEFINITE improvement. He's learning. Anyway. Keep texting him throughout the day about really nothing at all. He has to work from 4:00 to about 11:00, but we agreed to hang out afterward. And he actually suggested coming to MY house! I was very pleasantly surprised! Like I've said, he doesn't come over very often because he's not really friends with my roommates, but he said eventually he's going to have to get used to it. I'm kinda proud of him. While I'm talking to Tim I figured I would use my time wisely. I'd bought another cubby for my shoes, so I put it together and reorganized all my footwear. I must say, it looks much better now that my shoes aren't exploding out of my closet. Spent some time straightening up, too, since Tim was going to be coming here later. I know, his room is a total mess, but I try to keep my neat, and while it may not be a magazine cover, at least I picked up all the clothes off the floor. Well, since he's at work tonight, and I've been meaning to hang out with Luke, I text him and we decide to go see Shutter Island. I'd told Tim I was going to a movie while he was working, but I didn't say with whom....until he asked. Well, I wasn't going to lie to him, so I told him it was just me and Luke. He wasn't pleased, but he wasn't mad; he said no, he doesn't like me hanging out with Luke, but Luke's my friend, and "as long as your not doing the same stuff with him as you do with me than it's whatever." Riiiggghhhtt..like I would do that! But I'll give him points: he may not like me hanging out with his rival, but he also didn't say that I shouldn't or couldn't. And, he showed just the tiniest bit of jealousy, which I kind of appreciated. Tim totally made my night, though, when, in the middle of the conversation he just randomly texts me, "Can't wait to see you." I won't lie; I got a little teary-eyed and did a little happy dance. I mean, it's so simple, nothing stupid or dirty mentioned, just a little eagerness to spend time with me. I'll admit it; I squeeed.
Off to Shutter Island with Luke. I had a couple of certificates that I'd been meaning to use, so I told him I was getting the tickets, and he went and got candy. (Which I did not eat nearly enough of, but I was engrossed in the movie.) It's always fun hanging out with Luke; he's really easy to talk to, and we always banter back and forth about stupid stuff. Chatted a little before and after the movie, but it was too cold to stick around outside for long. Plus I was on my way home to hang out with Tim (but Luke didn't know that.) Gotta say, that movie is a trip! Won't mention any spoilers here, but let's just say I wasn't really expecting that! I would definitely recommend it! Oh, yeah, and checked my phone on the way out the theater, and guess who had called AND texted me?? Yeah, Holt. Does not give up, that boy. I did NOT respond again. Texted Tim on my way home and he left his house around when I got back. Just killing time before he gets here--oh! there he is! Have a good night everyone; I know I will! *wink*
