The first time I saw you was at my favorite band’s gig. You said hi to one of my friends that tagged along with me and I had seen you at school, but didn’t see you since. Then last semester, you wound up in my thesis class and turns out your pretty much everything I would want in a guy: similar music taste, same major, and so down to earth (despite being from a privileged background).

Watching your fave band with your arm around me pretty much made my night on Saturday. Then you fell asleep holding my hand. I can’t help but think it was all the alcohol we drank. All this just makes me like you more and more and I’m scared because I’m started to feel like I did for that idiot over the summer. The same confusion and angst about caring for someone who most likely doesn’t feel the same way. But you’re a good person (unlike him) and I know you wouldn’t just be using me as an emotional crutch.

I don’t know what to do with myself anymore. I want you to like me the way I like you.

I never thought I would say this but FOALS made me cry this morning. I was listening to Spanish Sahara and out of nowhere tears started coming out. It took me a while to realize what was happening. I don’t know … I think it just really touched me.

I am so poor after living in England for four months. I need to pay off loans, my new Mac, and my credit card bill. Thing is, I don’t start working until mid-June!!!! It’s so frustrating not being able to make money ASAP. I want to pay things off, buy things, be like, normal. This is so frustrating. I want my job NOW!

Chew Lips at the Jericho

Chew Lips was the first band I saw in the UK. Great way to start my British music experience!! They played at the Jericho, which apparently is one of the first places Radiohead played. There’s a mural on one of the walls to prove it. They were really good and I think later that week their album came out. I haven’t stopped listening to “Karen” since! I think they’ve played SXSW since then, so hopefully they come to LA soon.

I’ll give you the short version of (one of) my broken hearts in England.

I liked a guy at a coffee shop, thought he liked me because of all the looking at each other, looking away, side glances, smiles, grinning, showing off, etc. turned out he had a girlfriend, leaving yours truly totally gutted. I drowned my sorrows in Coke (and Fanta when I ran out of Coke) and Sailor Jerry. Totally had to avoid that part of town the rest of my time there. You would think I would be safe from awkward encounters, but NO. Of course it wouldn’t be that easy. One day I was waiting for my friend to come out of the bathroom after we ate at a cafe we frequented in another neighborhood, when out of the corner of my eye I see him and someone else about to come into the cafe. One of the most stressful moments of my life. I hid behind my hair and faced the wall next to me. They finally left, so I could breathe again. Why do these things happen to me? Did I mention someone I met was best friends with his older brother? Yeah, FML.
