I cried today..........and other stories
I cried today, why? because i didn't get something i wanted. I wanted this thing oh so badly but didn't get it. I prayed to God about it all day everyday but i didn't get it. (Sorry cant reveal what IT is) My prayer was " God if its meant to be, let me get it" and i didn't get it. So i guess God knows best.
Now to the "other stories".............
1. ASUU is still on strike, so there has been no school for over month now.
2. According to one word meme- My ex is gay. I've been meaning to blog about this for a long time but I've been too lazy! So here goes..............
The place: My friend lizzy's room Somewhere near Detroit, Michigan
The time: Night time December 2002
I'm gisting with my "best" friend lizzy and flipping through her photo albums. I see a picture of a guy - I would have just turned the page but i couldn't, he was FOINE!!!. Over 6ft tall, light skinned(mixed race), green eyes, nice lips, perfect nose.............i could go on and on.............
So i ask Lizzy, "who is this? He's hella sexy!"
She laughs and says "That's my lil brother Alan."
Immediately she said that, I stopped drooling and continued flipping.
***************************FAST FORWARD TO JANUARY 2004********************
Lizzy (still my "best" friend then) knocks on my door. I yell "Come in", she steps in with HIM. "Meet Alan, he just registered here(University of XYZ)" .....
Im like "Hi, nice to meet u...what are u studying.........." and he replies. At this point, I didnt drool anymore, i just kinda looked at him as my friend's younger bro and it stopped there.
A week later, i was looking for one more class to add and it seemed like all the classes were full. I was having lunch with Lizzy, Alan and a bunch of other friends.........and i was grumbling about not finding a class to add......bla........bla ........bla and Alan says " Hey! There's a lot of space in my Intro to Psychology class, why dont u come check it out...................." I was like.........cool.
I checked the class and it seemed ok, so i signed up. Al and I started seeing more of each other in class and even started to sit next to each other. Naturally, we started gisting, I found out that though he was a freshman, he was 21 at the time..(I was 19 going on 20 at the time)........he didnt apply to college straight out of high school cos he wanted to attend an art school or something........Anyways..........we started to study together.............from there we started hanging out..............to cut the long story short....................we became STRONGLY attracted to each other.
Before we took it any further, I asked Lizzy if she had any objections and she said "Not at all, I'd rather he dates you than anyone else on campus, I know you, i know what you are about & so on.."
After receiving lizzy's blessing, we started dating. Alan was & is one of the most creative person i know, he could draw, paint, even do hair, yes HAIR! Al used to wash, dry , press & flat iron my hair. He was also my fashion consultant, he had a lot of fashion sense and we would go shopping together and he would help me put together some "Fierce" looks. Everything was cool, only that i noticed that a lot of his friends were gay. I thought it was odd but hey, i have nothing against homosexuals so.........we continued with our relationship.
One day i wanted to hang out with Al, i called him to make plans and he said he wouldnt be in his room until 10pm , i told him i'll be there around past 10. After he hung up, i felt really weird, i felt like he was lying to me do i decided to do some investigating. I passed by his room around 8pm and i heard the tv but the lights were off, i became even more suspicious because Al usually doesnt leave his tv on when he's out, so i went to persuade one of my friends who was an RA (Resident Assistant) to use her master key (she had a master key to all the rooms in the dorms). After a lot of pleading, i got the key and unlocked the door as quietly as possible. Al and some guy were sitting on his bed looking surprised as hell. They were sitting on the bed, clothes on, tv on but lights off!
Why the hell are two GROWN ASSMEN watching tv alone in a DARK room??
At this point, I was horrified and didnt know what to think! How would i explain why i was barging into his room! At the same time!! what the hell was he doing home! He wasnt supposed to be home till 10! It was just past 8!!! So i stood there, door ajar, mouth open..................
