The past months have been so busy. I thought I was going to have way more time to write, but I guess it’s also a good thing. I absolutely love class and my classmates are great. My teacher is the best and I couldn’t ask for a better teacher. He’s so kind and sweet and if you don’t understand he wont move on until everyone understands. Him and I go back and forth during class making jokes. I think it’s funny I’m the only female in class, but I guess I better get used to it since the Criminal Justice field is male dominated. I had a weird experience with the new guy in class, I say the new guy because for the past few months it’s been all the same group of guys and me. He kept starting at me throughout class and it was making me sort of uncomfortable, but I didn’t say anything. Well he kept telling me how much he liked me and he knows I have a boyfriends so that made me even more uncomfortable that he wouldn’t back off with that knowledge already. I tried to let him down easy saying he was sweet and I was flattered, but I wasn’t interested and he wouldn’t take that as an answer and even crossed the line by saying to “forget my boyfriend” which only fueled me from being irritated to actual anger. I told him to stop and then just ignored him. As I went to leave class I realized he was the only one waiting for the elevator so I went to the bathroom to avoid any conflict, because if you know me you know I hate conflicts if it can be avoided. So when I came out I was alone and I figured he was about 5 minutes ahead of me that he was probably in his car leaving by the time I got to the 1st floor. He was standing outside the front door, it looked like he was waiting for me, but there was a couple guys from class outside talking so the guy just walked ahead of me and I got in my car and locked the door. He was pretty mad about being rejected and that’s what made me nervous. I don’t think he would have tried to hurt me or anything, I just don’t want to be put in an uncomfortable position so I ended up asking one of the guys in my class who’s an ex marine to talk me out at night after class since we get out of class at 10 pm and I explained why I wanted to be walked out and he said of course. He doesn’t like the new guy anyways and I think because of how aggressive he was it made him not like him even more. Fortunately, the new guy left early yesterday so I didn’t have to be walked out. I didn’t tell Dylan because I don’t want to give him any reason to worry about me because he’s stressed enough and I don’t want to add to that stress.
On another note, I applied to a job in Jacksonville as a 911 dispatcher and if I get that job then I’ll be moving sometime in January/February and I asked my teacher and a couple of the guys from class if I needed help could they help carry stuff and put stuff together and they said they would as long as they were free. Could you imagine little 5’1″ and my dad carrying a sectional possibly upstairs and inside? That sounds like more of a job for the ex marine, my teacher, and my dad kind of job. They even said they’d help me put the stuff together like my kitchen table, dresser, bed, etc together. Minus that new kid, everyone in my class is really cool and we’ve all been in the same class for like 3 months now. We all get along really well together and like I said my teacher is the best.
Dylan’s doing better. He’s finally getting used to his schedule so he’s not as grouchy all the time, but he has his moments still. I don’t think he realizes hes being grouchy/boarder line mean until I say something about him being in a bad mood and then he’ll apologize and tell me that it’s not my fault then he usually is more careful of what he says/does towards me. He had said to me that he doesn’t mean to take it out on me it’s just I’m the one person he’s continuously talking to and so it just comes out and he doesn’t mean to. This is honestly teaching me patience. I wish I could say our relationship has been a walk in the park since he left, but I’d be lying. We’re a couple and like every couple we have our fights, but since he’s been gone it’s more him being grouchy and then I get upset because I felt like I did something wrong and then after a little discussion he admits he’s stressed and that it’s not me. I just wish he’d tell me he’s not in the best mood and to not take it personally from the beginning, but it has gotten better. Between school and work I’m ridiculously busy, so it’s going fast. We’re a few days shy of halfway done! It could be more than halfway done or less since we don’t know when he’s coming home, I hope it’s more than halfway done!
Dylan and I always want to get a puppy together and we’re thinking about getting a Dachshund puppy. I was looking at pictures the day we were talking about it and of course I cried the whole time for some reason haha. So I guess that’s the update on my life! Sorry I haven’t been able to post in a while, every month we have research papers to write and presentations to go along with it, not to mention all the class work. I love it though, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world I’m so glad I found what I absolutely love and is truly my passion.
Hopefully, I’ll write more soon! Thank you guys! 🙂
