It’s amazing how quickly Xanga went from something everybody had to a tiny footnote in social-networking history. Facebook and MySpace exploded in the 2006-08 area and every Xanga it seemed was neglected or deleted into permanent nothingness. Even mine for a while. But now that no one reads these except for Amy (and maybe Brianna?), one can say almost anything on here.
I’m thinking about getting an apartment soon, but my #1 option for a roommate – Jake – is making me feel weird about it by his extreme emotional state after Amanda dumped him last month. This is at least the 3rd time the two have broken up or gone on a break or whatever in the 2+ years since this started, so I don’t know what to think. I don’t blame Amanda for leaving as I’m sure dating Jake was and is an incredible chore, but I don’t know why Jake still wants her. The dude may have cost himself a job by staying in this area after graduation for her, for two years, and she leaves after apparently wanting to for a while. Again, not that I blame Amanda, but from Jake’s point of view it would seem like all this is reason enough to not still be after her, and yet he is. His Facebook picture is a black box and he asked me last week if Amanda had asked about him. All this drama is making me want a different roommate. The issue is that there aren’t any other people around here I could really see myself living with. There are a couple of people at IHOP I suppose would be okay – Mike and Doug come to mind – but both smoke, neither make any more money than I do, and I’m just not sure our personalities would mesh. There’s always the option to live with John, which would be cheaper bill-wise but I don’t want to insert myself into that situation either if I can avoid it. It will be another month or two before I have to make this decision, but I would like to have it squared away relatively soon.
Life is complicated…thank God I have Amy, the only thing that makes sense in my life. Love you babe.
