So, I'm in the flat. Literally, right now, IN the flat. It's rather awesome, even if I do say so myself. Me and Matt have had a couple of argy bargies, but nothing major. Teething issues. He's used to his OCD, tight arsed way of life, but I'm more used to the Hakuna Matata style kick back and relax. Bad combination. But we're getting through it. Skint as anything mind you, but it's all fun.
Family are seeming more supportive now too. I kind of do and don't miss them. I've always been estranged from my mother, my sister's been the opposite to me in many areas and no father figure to speak of so, I never knew quite what a close knit family was. I'm like a lone wolf, only coming to the pack for food and shelter. Well now this wolf has his own sweet flat in the heart of town in the really nice part. Fuck yeah.
Got a week off of work starting last saturday. Absolute bliss. I'd forgotten what it was like to wake up in the morning. It feels much more natural, needless to say. I think I'm going to really try and push to get a different job elsewhere; for all it's fun and games, good pay and low work, it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. I need to branch out, try something new before college next year. I think I know what my task for this week is.
Me and Alice. Now here's an interesting subject. We're actually together now. Proper boyfriend and girlfriend style, which is most peculiar to feel I'll have you know! Couple of weeks ago, I stayed at hers and bless her, she became so paniced about me being there that I even offered to leave - and nearly did, too, till fate decided to make me miss the train by a mere fraction. She then insisted I stayed in the living room, which I obliged to, and then we spent the following day together. It was strange, mostly because I was meeting most of her immediate family and I wasn't even going out with her then. It was like we skipped a whole chunk of the Dating part, and got straight on with meet the parents. They were fine folk though, and I think I left a good impression, or so I've been told by Alice. Last thursday though, she stayed over at the flat. After what was an abysmal home cooked meal by me, we snuggled up and enjoyed the evening; now I wasn't expecting anything, nor planning anything to happen. We went to bed, intending to sleep, but things didn't exactly go that way. A small touch here, a kiss there, we both knew we had one thing on our minds. Needless to say, she wasn't a virgin anymore after that, and now I'm seeing an entirely different side to her which I'm loving. Before we had the sweet, kind, caring, considerate, bubbily and charmer which was Alice, now we have all of that with a dash of a hidden minx thrown in the bag. The talks we've had have left me so steamed on occassion that I'm counting down the days til she's back down which, funnily enough, is this Wednesday - right through to Saturday. Now is the big test. We've seen each other for extended lengths of time, but can we manage several days together? I hope so.
I'm really starting to feel something quite special off of her, something I've not felt since long ago back in that fated park. Been an interesting fortnight OD. I cant wait to see what the next few days will bring.
