…holding hands and not laughing too hard when your girlfriend is scared of a movie about the toothfairy. Okay – so maybe not the toothfairy. It’s these little goblin fuckers that were trying to steal children’s teeth. Yeek!
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t true love, but it was definitely a sweet gesture. Actually, I have a theory in life now – it’s that it is actually physically impossible for all three major areas of your life to go well at the same time. When my housing situation rocks, I have a shitty boyfriend or a shitty job. When my job situation is awesome, I have a shitty boyfriend or a shitty housing situation. And when I have an awesome boyfriend, and an awesome job, my boss decides to quit and my housing situation sucks. Basically, you can never all have three go right for you.
Although I am constantly amazed by the patience and just general awesomeness that the boy shows to me. There’s silly things, like the fact that he didn’t laugh too hard at the fact that I was scared of the movie. (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark -surprisingly good horror flick.) Then there’s other stuff, like when I’m sitting on the edge of my shower frustrated about my living situation, and his solution is to sit down next to me, pull me his arms, and tell me that any time I want to – I can spend the night at his house. (Which is actually kind of nice because I’ve gotten used to sleeping next to him.) Then there’s other things, like the fact that when we’re playing video games all day, sometimes he’ll just reach over and tweak my shoulder to let me know everything is okay. I’ve never met anyone so patient, so calm, and so rock steady – especially when handling me because I’m kind of all over the place. (Kind of might be an understatement there.)
I don’t really have much to say because my brain is mush. I’m mentally exhausted by all the shit I’m dealing with. I’m just lucky that I have someone who is so amazing to help me stand up when I get like this.
