I couldn’t sleep very well so I got up for a bit. It’s 3:30am, and pretty cold in here. I’m physically feeling much much better, just a bit of the cough still persisting. The cats all came in and joined me on the bed. Earlier tonight Joey came over for dinner and some TV. I made the chicken curry. It was nice having him here, the time went by too quickly. Mike spent the evening up at his bosses house for dinner, drinks and a haircut. He hasn’t come home so I imagine that he decided to sleep over.

Today I have classes and a few errands to run but aside from that not much. I’m feeling a bit stressed but not entirely sure why. Theres nothing to indicate that I should be. I think its a combination of being sick, not sleeping well, and the weather, which has been fucking cold and miserable. I’m going to have some apple juice and take a few valerian pills, I’ll see if that doesn’t help.

For some reason I’m up early this morning. I slept really well last night. While perusing my usually daily online haunts I came across this little ditty. I can imagine that this would be at least as uncomfortable as having a tooth pulled. I know my dad occasionally reads my live journal, which doesn’t bother me in the least. Mike reads it also, which does occasionally bother him, but he says nothing. On another note, schools going well, its hard to believe that the semester is almost over. Theres still so much paperwork to be done for the next one. Today theres school till 11 am, home, study, meet up with Joey later on tonight. Saturday theres a presentation on a scholarship that the Gay/Lesbian center is sponsoring. Sunday is full of nothing but relaxation and lounging.

I only had one class this morning, it was math.Now I’m home and couldn’t be happier. it’s mid 40’s and overcast, perfect stay indoors weather. I don’t have clases tomorrow, so I can finally catch up on my Networking class. I’ve been really bad about reading and doing the exercises in the chapters. I’ve been so focussed on the more social aspects of my life. I went to Cuff briefly last night with Mike, it was fun. After awhile the area of the bar were we were turned gay.com central, for the bear room. It was kinda fun seeing who posts pictures so old that they look nothing like there online selves. I got a call from Joey about 630ish so I went up to his house to spend some time. It was brief, because we were both hungry but damn it Janet, couldn’t remember the name of the chinese place we wanted food from. We headed down did some pickup and watch Carnivale.

This entry has been sitting here incomplete for most of the day. I’m back from my errands I’ll be hanging out tonight, not planning on doing much except relaxing. I went on a follow up visit with my doctor, my liver, gall bladder, kidneys are all healthy. My HIV status is still negative and my heart seems much happier. She gave me a refill for my tummy pills.

I’m hoping that Joey calls later. It’s at that stage were we aren’t “tricks” anymore and exploring a friendship of one sort or another. I tend to get really insecure at this point. It’s my own shit, I know, it seems I start seeing all of my own imperfections, and few of my better traits. I’m making a conscious effort to focus on the moment without expectations, just to enjoy whatever happens.

I went over to Joeys houe last night. I had such a good time. We had a few drinks and just hung out for a bit talking and just enjoying each others company. I spent the night and got home this morning around 9:30am. I was pretty tired when I got home so I layed down for a nap. I didn’t get up until 3:30 this afternoon. I was supposed to go shopping for a bed with Mike. We will go tomorrow. He is out now with Maria. I got up finally and went to the grocery store to get a few things for dinner tomorrow night. I’m starving right now so i think I’ll throw something together for dinner.

Just got back from my date. Dinner was really good. The man can cook one mean chicken curry. We played candyland and talked afterwards, a bit of cuddling and just nice times all around. I left feeling really good about life, validated in all the right ways.

I lavendered the house when I got home. Something was smelling a bit stale, not sure what it was but either way now the house smells like lavendar fields. It’s a bit excessive right now but will mellow overnight. I’m going to head towards bed to read for a bit. I have that midterm coming up at the end of this week. Joey and I are going to get together this weekend to do the weekend Market stroll down at Pikes Place Market. I’m really looking forward to it.

I have another date tonight with Joey. I’ve been looking forward to it since last night. Speaking of last night, oh my god, if you haven’t tried Dominos Philly Chesse Steak pizza you have not idea what you’re missing. They are so good!! I’ve been really into the portion control (with some measure of success) until I ordered the pizza last nght I ended up scoffing down 4 slices plus one of Mikes Bacon Cheeseburger pizza.

School went well today, I got two of my tests back. I am maintainging a 95 or highter average in all of my classes. I think come January it will be time to start finding some contract work. I’ve been looking for work that fits around my current schedule but really wanted to focus primarily on the school work.

Another reccomendation for anyone interested is the new Seal album (Seal IV). It’s available on itunes for those that like there music buying immediate. It took me a few listens before it started growing on me. Well, it’s time to get showered and primped, Joey is cooking a chicken curry and veggies and fruit tarts for dessert.

Just a note while I’m in class, Unix class. It’s my last one of the day. We’re talking about vi. Anyway, none of this is terribly interesting. I did make some delicous soup, Navy bean to be exact yesterday. I also made a really good white Chicken chili over rice.

ON another note. I met this guy, Joey, the other day up at the Cuff. He’s really interesting and funny and cute. I saw him at beer bust on Sunday. I spent some time at his house afterwards and then headed home. He invited me over to watch the second Matrix movie, but I had too much to do for school today. I’m hoping that I get to see him again in the next couple of days. I’ll write more later.
