Ok, I was thinking today, now that I’ve finished finals and such, that it’s time for a new crush in my life. I haven’t had a really good one in a while (the last long-term crush was the priest. Luckily, I moved, and I didn’t have too much direct contact with him so I couldn’t totally embarrass myself.) And yes, I know you can’t always choose your crushes, but you can influence them to a point. Or at least I think you can.
The current main option is the fella at the circulation desk. He’s got one of those flirty personalities - and he’s a nice person. That one would be easy - at least from my point of view. I’d see him a couple of times a week (after the holidays) and chit-chat, then go off to study in a happy mood.
I don’t really have any other possibilities out there, but I kind of miss having a good crush. I miss that jolt you get when you see them, and, yeah, I miss the fantasies too (look, I’m still in a LONG dry spell, ok? I’m entitled to a little fantasy in my life).
Feel free to suggest a crush for me. I don’t mind. Or babble about your current crush. They are kind of fun, aren’t they?
While I appreciate the offer - really, I do - if I’m going to get a crush on someone thousands of miles away, there better be an accent to make up for it. Preferably one that makes “naughty” sound so…well, naughty.
But I can pretend to have a crush on you and follow you around the boards posting things like sigh and swoon no matter what you say.
I’ve thought about it, but I’m a terrible mimic. My brother’s not and he’s spent about as much time in Canada as I have and sounds like he’s never left Brisbane. I, on the other hand, will have to spend the rest of my life with no-one believing I’m not a tourist.
Sure, there are plenty of crushes to go around. And the best thing? They can be shared. We could both have a crush on the same person and neither of us would ever need to know.
School went well. If I managed exams as well as the rest of the semester, I should be carrying somewhere between a 3.8 and a 4.0. But more important: I learned a LOT, and I’ve broken some of my auditor thinking habits (but not all of them).
Ooh, that’s very true, Lsura. Let’s get together and pick the same one on purpose!
And if library school gets some good positive reactions, I think I’ll be applying for admission very soon! (I have been planning on applying to library/information science programs anyway for a few years, it’s just a matter of getting off my duff and at least applying!)
It’s worth applying lel. I don’t know where you’re thinking of applying, but I’m at the University of Tennessee and they do distance education programs - this fall’s entering DE group was larger than the on campus group. I know that South Carolina also has DE, as do a couple of others. So if there’s not a school in your area and you don’t want to move, those are growing alternatives.
And the library concept can get some interesting reactions from certain groups of guys, but I promise that classes are not the place to develop crushes (very few guys).
(ok, I’ll stop hijacking now)
Yes, Osip? Of course I will still devote the majority of my time to the advancement of Osipism - how could I forget about my life’s calling. This is just for a little thrill.
Garfield, I have nothing against college guys. Are you legal?
