Stupid Summer [Jun. 29th, 2005|09:56 am]

[mood |aggravatedaggravated]

When I was dying of homesickness this last semester, dreaming of coming home, this really wasn't what I was anticipating. What I mean is, I definitely did not expect to come home to a little sister who's acting like all aloof, one triplet who's all moody and weird, another who I think is possibly a total psycho, and a boyfriend who's working ALL THE TIME.

God, I'm so bored.

At least I have Pow. He can be my best friend now. I mean, it's either him or Nicky; who else would I choose?

Keagan kissed me last night. Or I kissed him. I don't know what the hell happened.

My brain is telling me that this is great, that this can be the start of something new, that I can be good with Keagan.

But I just miss Logan.

At lunch yesterday, Keagan said, "Let's go to the Eiffel Tower."

"When?" I asked.

"After class."

"We won't have time before dinner."

"It's not that far! You can see it out the window."

"Far away out the window."

"Come on! Adventure! We'll use the Metro!"

"I don't - "

"Please? I was born in a cornfield, practically - I've never seen a subway."

He looked so pathetic. I caved. Only, as it turns out, having been on the NYC subway a few times, always with someone else, really didn't help me navigate the Metro too well, and at one point I think we were out wandering around by Rodin's garden, but other than that, we didn't know where we were. Eventually we said screw it and bought ice cream cones because I thought they would help us concentrate.

(I got vanilla, and it was like they poured pure vanilla extract on a pile of cream. It was really good.)

We did eventually get back to school, mostly by luck, but not until after dinner, which is past curfew. The principal put us on restriction for a week. Then we played Connect Four with our friend Gilly until we went to bed.

In bed, I realized that I hadn't thought about it being Valentine's Day throughout the whole afternoon and night, and I decided that Keagan is my best friend.

There's another gay guy at my school. I know this because, at lunch, he walked up to the table I was sitting at and asked, "Are you gay?"

It took me off guard, so I couldn't answer for a minute. Also, I'd just taken a huge bite of peanut butter and jelly.

"Uh. Yeah," I finally answered, trying to keep quiet.

"Cool. Me too," he said, and he sat down to eat.

His name is Keagan, he's four and a half months younger than me, and he's from Arizona. I've never met anyone - at least as far as I know - who's gay before. Except for me. And Logan.

I am not looking for a new boyfriend.

He likes the same music as me.

I'm not happy I'm here. I'm always tired, the food portions are small, I've only really left the building to go to the restaurant I'll be interning at (which, I'll be honest, seems really awesome), there's no one I really know yet, other than my crappy roommate. I keep thinking that I miss my family and boyfriend, only my family is way over the ocean, with a huge time difference, and I don't even have a boyfriend anymore.

This was not what I was expecting

Weekend with Logan - a full, unadultured success. I came home and explained to my parents how it was nice to spend time with my boyfriend, but how it was also a learning experience - how everyday college students live, what living on campus like, if I could see myself going to a big university like that, etc. I don't think they completely bought it.

But seriously - I don't really think it'd be possible for me to explain to them how I'm sore in all the right places, and how just getting to be near him and smell him (he has a smell - that aftershave he likes to wear) and hear him and just sort of bask in him is enough to send me into happy coniptions sometimes. I'm not sure they'd like hearing that.

Wish I was still there, actually.

I miss him. God, I miss him. Just another week, and I'll be visiting him, at least. That's better than nothing.

I'm not going to mention the Paris thing while I'm there. I mean, I only just put in the application a while ago, and why bring up something like that when it's not for sure anyway?
