tahiti: (Tell Me what the Rain Knows // Jupiter ()
So, here I am again, back at SFA. Trying not to fall into bad habits is hard, but it usually catches up with me. And of course, one of those bad habits is not keeping up with my LJ. During the summer, I was pretty good about reading my friends' page, just not as good with posting up an entry of my own. I try, I really do, but my writing hasn't brought me the joy that it usually does, so I didn't feel the need to write.
So... I got rejected. I finally got up the nerve to ask Dave what he thought of the possibility of him and I being an "us", and he only thinks of me as a friend. Which, in retrospect, isn't so bad. I mean, I still get an awesome guy friend who does give nice hugs and watches anime with me. I think that had we gotten together, the only aspect of our relationship that would've changed would've been the fact that we could make out. Meh. The 20 year streak (soon to be 21 year streak) continues.
The only thing that really bugs me is that, well, he only thinks of me as a friend. I'm always the friend. And plus, he said that he wouldn't be good in a relationship. That statement right there bugs the crap out of me. I wanted to ask him, so how did you come to this conclusion? Did your past relationships not work out or what? But I guess it's all for the better. I tend to be a very jealous person, and he's the type that's very touchy-feely with other people. I think I would be angry/jealous for the better part of our relationship, and that's not a very healthy relationship. I guess I'm satsified with what we have. I mean, he's fun to hang out with. It's almost like having a gay male friend, only I don't think Dave is gay. Well, not completely gay. (I'm thinking he may be bisexual.)
The bright side of all this is now I can stop obsessing about our supposed relationship. I think my friends were getting tired of me mentioning it, and I was getting a little sick of myself as well.

Things at SFA are stressful and hectic as usual. I'm enjoying my new dorm room, with my own room, and little kitchenette and living room area. The only thing really missing in my room is my new iMac. My Dell (Sumomo) died about two weeks before school started, and all attempts to replace her soured. (My friend Antwan and I tried to build a new computer, that didn't work... my parents and I tried to order a refurbished Dell, only to have that particular model be sold out.) I'm paying for about 3/4ths of Sumomo 2.0 with bond money, and then the rest of my bonds go into a CD for a down payment on a car or apartment or whatever I need in the future. I'm looking forward to my new computer. It'll take me awhile to adjust to using a Mac, but honestly, I can't wait. I've found that I am not a fan of laptops in general usage (only in travel), and I'm sure my dad is anxious to have his laptop back.
I'm pledging for Alpha Omega and Beta Alpha Psi. Alpha Omega is a business fraternity, and Beta Alpha Psi is the accounting/finance honors fraternity. Both will help me succeed in the future, and look nice on my resume. Plus, several of my friends are in Alpha Omega, and Beta Alpha Psi invites accounting firms to come to speak to us. I've already seen a presentation on Grant Thornton, who sounds like an excellent employer, especially since they have offices in Dallas and Houston, plus New York, and if I achieve a specific level of management, I can go on a 'secondment', which means I can go work in a foreign country. Japan, of course, comes to mind first, but I wouldn't mind working somewhere in Europe, like the UK. But I think I'd settle for the Dallas office, while maybe working towards heading to the NYC office.
I also have to get an A and a B in my two accounting classes this semester in order to actually become a full-fledged member of BAP. My C in Cost Accounting has basically almost screwed me over. Thank you, Dr. Turner. But the good news is that most of the accounting department acknowledges that anybody who took Turner for Cost was basically screwed over. So, if I can get an A and a B in my Income Tax and Intermediate II classes, I'll be golden. I'm also thinking I may stick around SFA this summer, just to take Cost over, because my other study buddies took it during the summer and most got As. I think I'll also take some other courses, because my plan is to graduate by 2008. Which, technically, is right on schedule for someone on a 4 year plan, but I'm on a 5 year plan. So it may be December of 2008. Which means my sister would have completed one year, and a semester of college. Quite a scary thought.

Well, I'm feeling rather sick (this damn weather is kicking my ass. It's humid as hell one day, nice the next, sweltering hot the day after, and then raining after that), I'm gonna go get some rest before my Poli Sci class.
Until we meet again,

August 2010
