Paige graduated in the spring, and once again called it off with Peter. Now he’s dating my new roommate, Elise who is graduating at the end of this month, along with Oliver. Maybe they will both drop us like old hats when that time comes.
Elise is crazy emotional. She goes from laughing to freaking out in the turn of a sentence. Peter must like this sort of thing, because Paige was witchy too, worse then Elise. Sometimes I think we might even be friends one day, and we really hit it off.
That’s usually about the time that she turns on me though. Even still, she’s better then Paige, and if Peter one day marries her, I’ll always know he could have done worse.
Dad was asking Oliver about where he was planning to live when he moves back in June, he hasn’t gotten anything squared away. But he’s leaning towards renting in South Port with Isaiah.
Oliver answered the questions honestly, and to the best of his ability. I think he’s the type of boy that Dad’s like, and it seemed my Dad would agree with that line of thinking. Elise however got really rude with Dad when he began prying about her plans after college. He wasn’t asking to make judgement, just small talk really.
Mom seemed to get a kick out of it, but I know she wouldn’t feel that way if she’d had Elise explode all over her. Peter spent the dinner trying to keep the conversation rolling so that no one would direct anything directly to his girlfriend. She did seem better once she got some food in her stomach, maybe she’s just like a man who gets cranky when hungry.
Poor Mom, she really seemed uncertain what was a safe topic, and just sort of sighed and nodded through the entire evening.
Back on campus, things started back in on the finals stress that seems to take over everyone, even those of us that are studious and don’t usually have to sweat this stuff. It’s been the rainiest spring, and has really added to the gloomy, doomy frame of mind.
I work part time at the coffee stand at the Student Union, just to keep some cash in my pocket since my actual education has been taken care of with scholarships and loans. Isaiah started coming by frequently, I figured it was on his way to a class, and didn’t think anything of it.
Then he started coming by my dorm room when ever Oliver was busy with classes or studying. I usually hole up in my room if Elise is gone, and dive head first into one of my new books.
I like this time, actually look forward to it during the week. So Isaiah coming by to chat was a nuisance.
I started to get the idea that he was trying to win me over, again. It’s not that I particularly hate Isaiah, it’s just that I’m seeing Oliver, and they’re friends. Plus they’re going to be roommates next month, and that would just be awkward if I wasn’t with Oliver anymore.
It already is, but only for me since I haven’t told Oliver. For all I know it’s just in my head. Or maybe Oliver even hinted that he wasn’t going to keep me around and is trying to pawn me off on Isaiah. I feel crazy when I start thinking about it though, so I just try and enjoy the moment.
We all go down to the campus pub, the boys mostly only talk about the places they’ve been checking out on the weekend, and the conversations are boring. I’m looking forward to Oliver having his own place that we can use as we please, but if we aren’t together then it doesn’t really matter to me.
He does ask my opinion about things though like what side of town or if I liked a particular place. That all has to be good signs.
Elise seems to be thinking long term with Peter, but he’s worried. I can’t say I blame him, he has been dumped twice by these older girls that are off to their next stage in life. But to the credit of girls everywhere, they were both the same person in Peter’s case. It doesn’t change the fact though that Elise is always talking about getting in better shape, and Peter is trying to do just that to keep her interested in him.
He doesn’t want her to know though, so he drags me along with him to the gym. I’m more inclined to sit in the commons and snack on the junk food then actually participate.
Peter gets really into it though, and I’ve noticed he’s toned his arms up.
I only bother going upstairs to actually do physical activity, if I know Oliver is on his way over. He likes to swing by after class to check out his “hot girlfriend,” he really gets a kick out of it, and I try to not disappoint.
He just eats it up, that it almost makes me want to do this full-time.
His graduation is just around the corner, and we don’t seem to be on the verge of breaking up, so I begin to find myself more excited about him having his own place. Especially since his roommate seems to pick the worse times to walk in.
In his own place, he can lock the bedroom door, that would be a nice luxury to have.
Notes: Elise, Oliver, and Isaiah graduated, I’ll put their information up on the birthday post. Isaiah tried making some moves on Meg, but like before, she rejected him. I mentioned before that Oliver needs to complete his biggest want (3 public woohoo), which is why he broke up with Paloma, Meg is #2. I don’t see him settling down until he’s gotten the #3 taken care of. But that doesn’t mean that he necessarily has to break it off with Meg ether. I’m not dooming them completely as a couple, will just wait and see what happens.
Meg – 3.6
Peter – 3.3
Oliver – 2.8 (he had a rough time after breaking up with Paloma that his grades slipped.)
Elise – 3.9
Isaiah – 3.4
