Hello, hello! I’m back to my regular everyday hours at work again, full time! I had a nice little break away from work but it’s also been great to get back into it now that it’s busy season again. The shifts are flying by and the money shall be coming in, which is great because I’ve been spending a little too much lately, LOL. Back to saving I go!
Let’s see, what have I missed in the last couple days?
Ah yes, the dying of my hair went well! I now have a deep ultraviolet-plum coloured shade of hair and I couldn’t be happier with it, it looks fucking awesome if I do say so myself! I’ve always wanted to do this and I’m so glad that I finally was blonde enough to have it show up exactly as I always imagined.
The girl’s night was actually pretty fun too – no drama, no shit-talking, just plain and simple enjoying each other’s company.
I finally ended up running into Luna after all this time and turns out, she brought back an engraved shot glass for me from the Philippines because she remembered that that’s one of the things I collect from the countries I travel to, which was very kind of her. I’ve been seeing her more at work lately and we talk here and there amicably but we also don’t go out of our way to talk a lot, which is basically exactly how I like things to be.
The night of the girls’ night, turns out that the place happened to be ten minutes away from where Adrian lives! I snapchatted him that I was in his hood, and he spontaneously asked me to stay over much to my delight. So despite being completely unprepared, I slept over anyways LOL.
He was sweet though, he knew my contacts were bothering me so he drove us to a 24-hour Shoppers so that I could grab what I needed in order to stay over comfortably.
Once again, I won’t go into so much detail but I will say this – it’s actually uncanny how in sync we are, like how connected. He thinks exactly as I do, like I can see so much of my own habits reflected back at me through him, all the good ones. We vibe so well together and I feel so completely comfortable around him.
I never thought I’d feel this way again, like to this depth, at least maybe not so quickly. Then again, I do tend to fall hard and fall fast, I know that. I worried that I’d never find chemistry like I had with Nick, or find someone who was just as affectionate as I am, just as romantic and spontaneous. And now, I have. When I was least expecting it.
We’ve seen each other quite a bit in the last couple weeks, but it still feels like it’s all happening at its own pace and whatever pace this is feels right. It’s not easy seeing the crazy neurochemicals for what they are when you’re in the midst of them but I really am glad I read “Wired for Dating”; because of that book, I can separate myself from the hormones to a certain degree and understand whether or not we really are connecting, as well as gauge what attachment style he seems to have and whether or not it works well with my own. So far, so good though!
We’re seeing each other again tomorrow, for our High Park date. We’re going to be seeing the cherry blossoms and then going for AYCE sushi afterwards, and then I’m hoping we’ll spend some more time together wherever we end up. I’m excited! I really enjoy spending time with him.
Anyways, as for the rest of the weekend after that, I just worked and have been working since, and will continue to be working every day for the next week, minus tomorrow. So, I’m definitely going to be making the most of my day off, that’s for sure.
My travel bug has been flaring up again lately. Sera recently told me about a deal she’d heard about to Curacao and I found it – it’s for the end of May, a week-long round trip for $323 and an extra night in Miami is included. I did some further research and found a beautiful hostel for only $30 a night, which means the trip cost for flight and stay would equal to about $550. Ah man, the temptation.
I briefly mentioned it to one of the girls I went to Belize with but… I’m also kind of curious to ask Adrian if he’d be interested in going with me, LOL. Yeah, that might sound kind of crazy seeing as we’ve pretty much only just met and have been seeing each other for about a month but… *shrug*. Like I said, I feel comfortable with him. I’ll go with my gut, if it comes up organically in conversation tomorrow, it is what it is! Whatever is meant to be, will be. Maybe Radha and Krish could come with us.
Speaking of Radha, her week-long meditative retreat is coming to an end tomorrow!! I’ll finally be hearing from her by Wednesday, thank goodness. I’ve actually really missed her, I hadn’t realized how used to talking to her everyday on the phone I’d gotten until we stopped about a week ago. So much to update her on, and I can’t wait to hear about all her spiritual revelations and realizations.
Anyways, that’s about it for today! Hopefully I’ll find a moment to write tomorrow after the date, but if not I definitely will on Wednesday morning. Until then!
