I’ve gotten to that point in my life where I’ve started to question all these so-called conventions when it comes to dating.
This includes who should text first, how many days should you wait before texting/calling him, who should call first, etc. It’s all a bit ridiculous, I’ve realised. I’m a pretty impatient person, so if I just sit around waiting like I usually do then nothing will get done because we all know that guys are really, really clueless
all the time sometimes. I don’t think guys realise how much they keep girls waiting and on edge. It’s annoying.
I mean, really, what’s so wrong with the girl calling or texting first? If anything it shows assertiveness and confidence which I’m sure some people would find sexy. I know I’d find it sexy if I were a guy. A relationship does take two people to work, so if it’s always the guy making the first move what does that say? Of course, I wouldn’t necessarily text the guy as SOON as I get home if I get his number (not that I ever have made the first move, anyway, ha!) but you know the next evening or 2 days would suffice.
In other news, I have an interview this week for a retail shop called Primark. I’ve realised that until I get a proper job with a per annum salary I need some way to survive. There go my high hopes of working straight as soon as I finish university. One of my closest friends works in the Primark I applied to, and she put in a good word for me, so fingers crossed I get it. I guess I just need to ace the interview. Who knows, though? Something could fuck up.
I also got a staff writer internship at geekinsider.com. It’s only 3 months and not paid but that’s okay because it’s online so I don’t need to spend any money or anything! Plus the experience would be really useful and help me brush up on my writing skills. They also said they’d give me a letter of recommendation once my 3 months are up. Good times!
I’ve also started watching 30 Rock (you know me and my television shows, I can’t keep away. I always have something new to watch) and have already raced through 3 seasons. 30 Rock is so, so funny. Like ridiculously funny – plus it has Tina Fey who I’m
a lot a little bit in love with.
