Way to Make an Impression

Lately, I just feel like I'm spinning tires and not getting anywhere. I mean I feel like I'm moving, but without any progress, sleeping in, forgetting things...what gives? I'm in a serious need of a vaca! Thankfully a beach trip is headed my way in less than two weeks!

There was a point to my above note in moving and not making any progress in that I had overslept on Friday till 8 AM! Mind you I have to be at work at 8:30 AM and I was leaving work early in the afternoon for a community service event, which meant that I had to get all of my work done in a half day. So this is the start to my Friday....

Luckily, the outfit was a no brainer. We are required to wear our company community service t-shirts to our volunteer event, so I was basically set to go in no time. I hop in my car and get ready to head to work when I realize that I had forgotten my banana on the counter and as I contemplated forgoing the banana I figured what would another minute be if I was already running late.

I decided to make a run for my apartment door not sure why I think I thought I would be saving time. I park in a parking deck and most of the cars were already gone so I was running over the empty parking spots. Well as I am in mid stride this silver truck comes around the corner and is trying to park in one of the spots that I'm running across (I know not a very classy move on my part- definitely not cool, calm and collected). So, I try to move out of his way and he gives me the go ahead to continue over his spot, probably for the shear joy in seeing me make a FOOL of myself as I'm running across the parking deck in my neon company community servicee shirt...ahhh the visual was probably making his morning, because I probably looked like a spaz!

Well, good news I got my banana and was making my way back to my car...I decide that may be power walking would be better than a full on sprint at this point. I was hoping to not run into the guy on my way back, but because of my record timing I pass him as he's coming in the entrance to our apartments. And he was so cute! Why is it that whenever you don't want the guy to be cute he is! I gave him a little smile and said, "sorry about that." He was like, "no problem." So, first impression with the cute guy in my apartment complex neon t-shirt girl sprinting and all for a banana!

With that I'm off to sleep.

Potential Prospects

So when a guy says we'll get together early next week...what does that really mean to him?

I mean because my definition would be Monday or Tuesday...Wednesday is midweek and Thursday and Friday are later in the week. See that simple!

It's already Thursday so I'm guessing I won't hear from him.

In other of my friends sent me an invite for this weekend on Facebook and I definitely checked out what the guys who were going looked liked. Is that bad? I mean I have to check out the potential prospects!

In the Club

I think Jason Derulo's lyrics from In My Head say it perfectly....

"Everybodys looking for love. Ain't the reason you're at this club."

I mean because seriously we all know that's a major motive for going hopefully meet a guy or at least be able to give out a number or something!

But one of my friends said something so true the other day..."I mean how long do we have to keep up this schedule of going out every weekend when we seem to not meet any new guys, all it leaves me is tired and hungover the next day."

I agree with her this past weekend I was out till 3 a.m. (I mean did I think I would meet a coherent/decent guy at 2:45 a.m. or something)...the answer was definitely not! I woke up the next day tired and with no motivation to do anything. saying that something to add to my list find new way to meet decent guys...I'll keep you posted on my progress!

This past weekend I had a run in with my ex (the first time seeing each other since our break-up two months ago). It actually went better than I expected....although I wasn't really sure what to expect in the first place. He's a great guy what can I say, but it's just one of those things that we're better off being friends.

I guess the night went so well that I ended up taking him home...I mean how did that happen? Honestly, I'm really not sure I guess that's what a late night will do to you...he was going to take a cab back by himself and I was driving home, so I thought the nice thing to do was offer him a ride. And yes...I took him home and I went back to my place if that's what you're wondering....

But, yesterday I receive a text from him saying it was good to see me and thanking me for the I said nice guy. Should I respond to the text or just read and move on? Ahhh I responded with what..."no problem, good to see you too" I figure that was short and to the point, right?

Life in the Single Lane

So, here's where it all begins! I'm not sure where this adventure will lead me, but if anything it should be entertaining.

I'm a 20 something living in the city, well more like the city/burbs limit (may be this is the reason I'm still single) trying to figure out this dating world.
