Not a lot to say this time.
Hung out with the boys and watched Avatar last weekend. Karlie was visiting Will. She's such a sweetie... really nice. Reminded me I have to watch how I act with Chris, though. Usually I split my affection evenly between Chris and Will, but since Karlie was there, she was taking up most of Will's attention and left me with just Chris. Khang mentioned that he felt like a 5th wheel, making me want to smack my forehead. Except for never saying no, a lot of it isn't my fault. I can't tell if Chris likes me as more than a friend or if he's just being affectionate and trying to keep me warm, but he wrapped his arms around my waist a lot when we were watching.
Monday, Allison and I went to Khang's hockey game. I was sooooooo glad Allison came. I really didn't want to go by myself, Will and Chris bailed for homeowork, and I was sure Khang was going to get mad at me if I didn't come. After the game, Khang spent the whole time trying to talk both of us cold girls into getting frozen yogurt. Yeah, so not happening. He could not understand that we were cold already and that frozen yogurt was colder.
Tuesday was TTM. Story is with Jon rant at bottom. Oh, and Peter came. I'm in not the greatest mood as I write this, so I'm sorry a lot of this is negative. Anyway, on the way back from TTM, Lauren and Jenna walked together in front of me all the way back. Never turning around or saying anything to me. I don't know if they even realized I was behind them for the second half of that walk. I need to talk to Jenna about that because it drives me NUTS that when Lauren and I are both around, she loves Lauren and ignores me. That sounds kind of extreme, but Lauren definitely gets the bulk of Jenna's attention. Yet, Lauren doesn't spend as much time with her as I do. Lauren slams doors in her face and stomps out the door without answering Jenna's, "Good morning." When I'm angry, I at least act civilized, especially to people who haven't done me any harm. It irritates me that Lauren treats Jenna like that and that Jenna still loves her.
Wednesday was XA and our hockey game. XA was good, met a new guy who's in 2 of my Anth classes and whose girlfriend is studying in Santiago (where I was last semester). He's a nice kid, good time. We lost our hockey game, but it was a good game. I tripped a guy with my stick. ;P
Thursday... Allison, Emily, John (Allison's friend/potential love interest), and I went over to the boys' for swing-dancing. We made our own swing. It was ok, not quite as fun. Allison's less fun when she and John are teasing each other the whole time. I guess I'm less fun when I'm talking to Will and Chris all the time too, though. Anyway, it was fun. Played ninja with Allison and my feet vs. Jon's hands. He won the first time, I won the second. We played some with riddles and word games... best quote of the night was when we were playing the camping game where you have to bring something that starts with the same letter as your name. I (Susan) brought soup, Allison brought an apple, etc. Chris goes, "Hey Will, can I bring sexy back?" Will answered, "Uh... NO." Me: "But I can bring sexy back!" Will: *high five*
Oh, and Khang had technically organized the whole thing. As usual, the whole time he was in his room or came out only briefly and was completely out of it and looking straight ahead with glazed eyes. I don't know why I take it so personally when he gets mad cuz there's obviously something really wrong with him. But I do. Like, he keeps aiming barbed facebook statuses at me. (That's not just me being egotistical, by the way--I never thought it was me until he pretty much told me.) The latest one: "I'm not completely understanding excuses or avoiding... isn't the truth just easier to say? Logics O.O " In response to me telling him I probably wasn't going to be able to go ice skating because Jenna and I were going to see a movie and I was hanging out with my Chinese partner. That is a legitimate "excuse".
Friday: busy, class and adviser and Bio studying for several hours. Went over to Jacob (zombie Jacob, first one I met here)'s house and made him dinner and watched the new Star Trek. Third time seeing it, and I still love that movie.
All that's left is me ranting about Jon. You can skip if you like.
So, last entry I mentioned being kind of irritated at Jon sort of invading all the spheres of my life and seemingly not making any friends of his own. This is that feeling being completely right.
Last weekend, some friends from XA (a Christian organization I'm a part of) were going to a corn maze. Jon is an atheist. He knows some people in XA because he lives in the same building and I introduced him to friends, but he doesn't regularly hang out with any except Allison, Michael, and me. So the day we were going to the corn maze, I finished a phone call with my mom to see a text message from Jon saying "So were you planning on inviting me to your corn maze outing?" As though I'd planned it and excluded him. While I was writing a response saying it was XA's outing, not mine, I got another text from him saying, "Oh, sorry. I thought you were organizing it."
That wasn't the end of it, though. He showed up. Of course Michael wanted to ride with him, and I had to go with Michael because I'm his conversation partner and one of the only people patient enough to talk to him. That would have been ok if I would have been able to hop out of Jon's car and hang out with some of the other people once we got there--I was really looking forward to meeting some of the new XAns because XA has grown so much that I don't know everyone in it. But no. Jon sucks with directions (misreads the printed ones), instead of being reasonable and following one of the other cars there, decides to rely on his phone for directions, and gets us lost in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and he keeps saying he hopes we're paying for gas. Cuz it's our fault he got lost.
Ok, admittedly it wasn't completely his fault. The directions Pierce had printed off were wrong. But they were from Google Maps, the same thing Jon was looking up on his phone. So obviously that wasn't going to make a difference and help us. I suggested that we stop at a house and ask for directions. Jon ignored me and kept trying to use his map at first. When that didn't work, he finally agreed and drove to a house, where Stephan and I got out and asked directions. Straight 7 miles, then straight at the stop sign. Wowwww. That was soooooooo hard. And then Jon gave me crap when we got to the stop sign because you couldn't go straight like the guy had said, but we knew it was away from town and obviously to the right.
By the time we got to the corn maze, most of the other people were already coming out. I only got to meet one new person, and I only talked to her long enough to get her name, major, and where she was from. I was fricking PEEVED at Jon. First, he gets mad at me for something I didn't even exclude him from. Then he insists on coming anyway. Then I get forced into his car because of Michael. Then he gets us lost (we saw other cars on the way, he should have just followed them), then he wants us to pay the gas from him not listening to my suggestion of asking for directions right away.
So yeah, I've been irritated at Jon. Haven't seen him all week. We left for TTM at the usual time and he wasn't there (he usually shows up on time, and everyone else showed up without being reminded), so I went ahead and let him know we were on the way. He sent back asking if we were in the courtyard or if we were already going, and I answered, "Yeah we're going, we left at the normal time." He didn't meet us there. So, whatevs. I'm glad I got to hang out with my boys twice this week without him being there. We'll see if it keeps up.
