I managed to make it through yet another semester.
I just checked my grades online, and let’s just say, so far I’m hitting my 4.0 for the MBA. Party on, dude. Not that school is a party, at least not as a “non-trad.”
People always talk about how they partied so much in college, and always met tons of people, yada yada. It’s not like that when you go part time in the evenings. I never got to party. I’d be bitter about it, except that I don’t really like to drink aside from an occassional glass of wine.
Anyhoo, I ran into a girl I used to have some classes with, and she had always displayed quite a bit of interest in me. I’m such a doofus, I never really gave her a chance because I was constantly busy as an undergrad. I literally didn’t have a single evening I could have done anything with her… for 3 years.
Well, we got to talking, and I realized something… I really like her, and I was a doofus to ignore her advances over the past 3 years. I kicked myself, because I didn’t actually realize that I was a doofus until after she had walked away, and I realized I don’t have her phone number. I managed to scrounge up her email, and I’m going to at least give it a try.
Hopefully I won’t come across as a big dork. She’s obviously not bitter that I’ve ignored her, since whenever I’ve seen her over the past year or so she always comes up to talk to me.
I knew I needed to go out with her when I dreamed about her last night. Ok, it was an odd dream… we were taking a scuba diving class together. And it wasn’t with normal gear… it was the old school stuff, with the brass helmet and hose that comes down from the boat. Like I said… odd.
I’ve never had any interest in scuba diving. Frankly, I’m not real big on getting in the water, which was further reinforced when I nearly drowned a couple of years ago. She has never mentioned diving, so it’s just one of those weird connections you can only make in a dream.
So, to summarize:
1. I am a dork
2. I am a doofus
3. I kicked myself
4. I emailed her
5. I’m now waiting.
Oh, and speaking of summer vacation… if any of you are in Kansas City at the beginning of June, I’m having a barbeque on the 4th… come on down.
