This time, it’s my turn to ask him out.

Ice cream date at Baskin Robins. It was an impromptu thing and I was deciding against it cause it looked rather gloomy. Getting caught in the rain isn’t what I want to go for but I still did mention to him since we can have it on a sunnier day but he was kinda keen and so 3 hours later, we went for ice cream.

I was going to pay but he got to it first but I can’t say I don’t enjoy this particular kind of treatment because I kinda do so thank you. It’s not everyday a man is willing to pay for my food alright.

When he said “Let’s do something again soon”, I did not expect it to be this soon. Just two days after the first date, he asked if I was interested in seeing Oddball the movie, probably tempting me with “There are fairy penguins…”. Anyway, I said yes and so, he picked me up in his little blue car on Saturday and off we went.

Oddball is a pretty good movie. Of course, it was totally predictable but an enjoyable movie nonetheless.

Afterwards, we had lunch at 3 monkeys and, okay this time, it wasn’t that I didn’t know what he was talking about but more of I couldn’t hear what he was saying at times due to the noisy environment. There is a limit to how many times a person can ask for the same line to be repeated and so, I laughed along like the previous time.

Somehow, I wasn’t very hungry so I kinda just watched him eat his salad while I sipped on my chai latte.

So, part 2. Now that I know I am going on a date, the first question was, what should I wear.

The next line that followed after opening my wardrobe would be “Crap. I have nothing to wear!” but luckily, my friend wanted to go shopping so I took the opportunity to buy a dress, and a pair of shoes. I mean, I am shopping and those were some nice shoes.

Outfit settled.

Fast-forward to Monday night, o.m.g. I wondered if I did my makeup correctly, if my outfit was an overkill (it probably would be if I had bought heels), what bag I should bring, should I just not bring a bag? What about my eye drops? Oh wait, it would be silly to be putting eye drops in front of him anyway, etc etc. You get the drill.

Yesterday, I went on my first actual date in 3 years.

I have been single for 3 years and the weird thing is, the amount of time I spent dating someone seems to relate to the time I spend being single. My first boyfriend, we were together for half a year? and I spend half a year single before I met my 2nd boyfriend. We dated for 3 years and I honestly thought he was the one. Guess again.

It was rough for me and though there had been a few confession I’ve received in the last 3 ish years, I always said no and apologize mainly because I felt that I wasn’t ready, that I was still hung up over my ex boyfriend. I mean, the whole crying over him at night got better and lessened over time but when I received those confessions, I still had my episodes.

It might just be twice a year aka once in a blue moon but the fact that I’m crying over my ex means that I have not gotten over him.

But you know what they say, time will heal and, time did heal.

It was one of those moments when you uncover an old conversation between you and your ex but feel nothing and that was when I realize I was finally, over him.

Anyway, on to my date.

Just a quick update, I’m not dead.

I’ve just spent two weeks studying for my exams, a week finishing my exams, two weeks in the lovely Adelaide, and just got back last night. HELLO INTERENT! (My hotel doesn’t provide free wifi in the room thus I got to experience what it is like without internet which, was sad especially at night where you have no where to go and nothing to do except to stuff your face with expensive churros from San Churros Chocolateria. They were amazing btw. Just not sure if my jeans agrees with me.)

So I didn’t see any koalas but I did see sea lions, kangaroos, peacocks, cows, lambs/sheeps, horses, and an alpaca! Yes. I saw an alpaca for the first time ever and it was pretty adorable.

And no, I didn’t visit any wildlife park or the zoo because it was expensive (I spent too much on joining local tours that brought me to little Scottish and German towns, rivers, beaches, harbors, scenic drives, and Kangaroo Island which was pretty awesome), and really hard to get to without a car.

But I really did enjoy myself in Adelaide despite the few days of horrible weather. A girl could use some some sun and a little less rain when she visits Kangaroo Island yo.

Anyhow, I’m off to watch HTTYD 2 since school starts in 4 days…Heh. Where did all my time go?
