Short explanation for my absence

Well, first of all there was the holidays. I was obviously busy around Christmas doing stuff with my girlfriend. I met her parents for dinner. It was interesting. Her mother had a calender in her purse, pulled it out during coffee, and told me to pick the day we would get married. They picked September 11th, I said that would be a bad idea, and picked September 4th. They weren't really thinking about the significance of 9-11 to Americans.

After that intensives started in early January. They're still going on, but I only have one class left next Monday morning. I just don't have the motivation to write when I'm pulling two or three split shifts a week. Today for example I worked from 9:00-1:00 and then from 3:00-10:00. Makes me weary.

I also finally got my PS3. I've been keeping myself busy playing "Dragon Age". It's pretty good. Not as good as it was hyped up to be, but decent nevertheless. I think next I'm going to get "Demon's Souls" or "Fallout 3". Haven't made up my mind yet.

Now the bad news. My girlfriend is pissed off at me. She's so pissed off I'm not even sure if I can call her my girlfriend anymore. We got in a huge fight on Saturday night and she hasn't spoken to me since. I'm giving her a little space and hoping that she comes back. It's been driving me crazy all week though. I couldn't even eat on Sunday or Monday I was so sick over it.

We've both been really stressed out because of the wedding, money, and on top of that we have intensives so we're very tired as well. It all just kind of came to a head on Saturday night. The worst part is that we got in a fight in front of other people. Of course, I don't care about that part. I'm a guy, I'm American, embarrassing myself in front of people just isn't a big deal to me. However, it is a big deal to her. That's what's bothering her, not that we got in a fight as much as we got in a fight in front of people.

I just hope she takes me back. I'm a good person. I would never cheat on her, I would never hit her, I would never get in a fight in front of her parents or anything. We were just out drinking at a noribong and I had a few too many. I feel really bad about it now. I hope we can get over it. I don't want to have to date again. I don't want to have to hang out and drink with a bunch of people I don't even like just so I can maybe, possibly, meet someone that I might like.

Anyways, that's what's up. Hopefully, I'll find some more motivation for writing again now that intensives are more or less over.

Hope everyone else in the blogosphere is okay.


  1. Hey man, hold in there. You'll be alright. People do stupid shit when they're drunk; myself absolutely included.

    There are a few things to consider: Firstly, give her space. You've done that, so that's good.

    Secondly, don't give her too much space. Remind her that you're still there; you still love her.

    If you both love each other, you'll get over this shit. Bad things happen all the time but you'll get over it, don't worry.

    It sucks you're not eating but that happens. Try and take care of yourself as much as possible. Don't let shit get you down too much. Computer games help, as stupid as it sounds. Anything to take you mind off it... But after a little while I'm sure you guys will get back together.

  2. Yeah, everyone says the same thing. I just worry a lot. I'm eating fine now. Honestly, half the reason I couldn't eat Sunday and Monday was the combination of Motgoli, Macjew, and Soju Saturday night. I just can't drink Motgoli (or however the hell you spell it), the shits just nasty.

  3. Been there, done that brother. It'll get better.

    Our wedding ceremony was on a September 4th ;-)

    Makkoli is tasty, though !

    Take it easy.

  4. Thanks. We'll have to agree to disagree on makkoli though. Not a good idea to drink that stuff before beer and soju. My stomach didn't recover for days.

    Hopefully, our wedding ceremony is still on September 4th. That still remains to be seen.
