Getting Behind on Questions
I got the better of a conversation with Colleen. She told me at one point that will all these pictures of me on campus, they had all the blackmail they would ever need if I decided to be uncooperative. I told Colleen, that I thought that ship had already sailed months ago. She didn't know what to say, but then admitted they all still liked to watch me pose.
I got another phone number. A guy approached Kristine and asked her what was going on. She explained that she needed to get some pictures for a sociology project (I guess I'm the project). The guy was in a class with her and immediately started chatting me up. As I looked over the girls were smiling at me and winking, but it was a relatively safe setting. I did my best to flirt back and the small cold I have now probably actually helped my voice (this cough is really bothering me by the way) or at least provided an excuse if I still wasn't in the right register. He wanted to swap numbers---I guess there are advantages to not having a pocket for a cell phone, but I talked him into writing his down instead when I promised to call. Kristine says he's a terrible flirt who does this to every girl he meets, but that he seems like a decent guy.
Xiu and I will be spending Saturday together again. I can't deny being scared about it. I actually practiced with my little friend Roger this morning (if you know what I mean) because I was told my technique needed improvement. I felt so embarrassed. Things do ease up around here, but when they get intense, they get really intense.
