New Stuffs....

So the boyfriend and I broke up...and I've been talking to the Ghanaian guy. But now he tells me that he hasn't been completely honest with me and that he has something to tell me. I'm just thinking...NOT AGAIN!!!!

Monday, August 25, 2008


Sorry for the hiatus :-( Classes have started, so don't expect me to post too much. It might be twice a week...or less.

So what have I been up to lately?

Well...packing, unpacking, african party, friends, church...pretty standard stuff.

Thanks for everyone's advice, but I guess I didn't need it, as things have a way of sorting themselves out. I actually have quite a bit to tell you about, but I feel like the story is not over yet, so we'll have to wait until Friday to know how the whole situation ends.

Some things that you might be interested to know is that I finally told A parent (my mom) about my AA boyfriend. She wasn't that happy...but she wasn't upset. She just wanted to make sure that it's not serious, and I assume that she is not telling my dad about it. She gave me the impression that he would be very very very upset. Drama surrounds that Ghanaian guy...which is the story that you all will have to wait for. And to clear things up...I hope that no one thinks that I am cheating on my bf, because I'm not. Like...when I kissed the other guy, we were on break...and we're actually on a break now. Classes have started...and I don't need ANY distractions. Well...maybe I could do with a couple lol.

Anyways, I've got e-mails and stuff to send out, meetings to attend, and I room that's not yet clean lol. I'll Talk to you all later! Take care and bye!

Life is going horribly wrong for me at this point. Well not HORRIBLY wrong, but it's just different. And let's just say that I can't really cope with it. So right now, I'm just going to ask for advice.

So since I last updated everyone, a LOT of things have changed. For the simple rundown of it all....
*Boyfriend and I decided to take a break
*The Ghanaian guy and I kissed...and got pretty close. Emotionally that is...not physical. But we have kissed...a lot!
*Boyfriend and I got back together after a day of being upset and crying.
*I also got sick and had to be on medication for the past week.
*Needless to say....the combination of all this and the fact that I had a third test and a final for my class resulted in a not so pleasing grade.

Now here is the major dilemma...I like both of the guys. I mean...I love my boyfriend. But I know at this point that my parents would never accept him. Though they did meet him and have a good conversation with him when I was moving out. This Ghanaian guy...he's cute, sweet, just a really nice guy. But of course, parents also met him move out day and they had stuff to say as well. My mom of course kept asking me about our what kind of friends we are. She knows I would never admit to being in a relationship with anyone to least not for a while. So mom was like...stay away from Ghanaian men, they are loose. They don't stay in marriages (which ironically enough his parents are divorced).

And then part of me also tells me to forget about them both and just focus on school. I decided that I was still interested in going to medical school but I plan on getting my MD/MBA...but, I have to get good grades. And this summer kind of sucked for that. My parents are right, I am getting distracted...and that's why part of me just wants to dismiss them both and guys altogether. I don't know. I just need some advice here. Any and all is welcome.

And my boyfriend is actually fully aware of my feelings for this other guy.

Music Tag and CONFUSED!!

Well...I got tagged for music tag. Been putting it off, but I might as well do it now lol. So here are the rules:

Put your i-tunes/music player/Nokia N95 on shuffle

For each question press the ‘next’ button to get your answer

You must write the name of the song down no matter what!!!

After you’ve answered all the questions tag 5 other people and let them they’ve been tagged and to do the meme themselves:

If someone says ‘is this okay?’ You say:
I'm a G - Young Joc ft. T.I.
I usually say it is...unless I am seriously opposed to it. I don't like to be controlling...but don't take that to mean I let people walk all over me. I stand up for myself when I need to.

What would best describe your personality?

The Boogie Monster- Gnarles Barkley
I have a monster in my closet? Haha...well, let's just say that I'm really nice, but not everyone knows EVERYTHING about me. I guess that makes me a little mysterious.

What do you like in a guy/girl?
Anxiety - Black Eyed Peas ft. Papa Roach

I can only hope that I can be half as good a parent to my children as they were to me.

What do you think about very often?
Boyfriend Girlfriend- C-side
Hmmm....very ironic. I think about my boyfriend/ex-bf a lot and still do. But I also think about school and my future a lot...I just need to stay really committed.

It's either 4 or 22...depending on how you look at it.

I'm not tagging anyone for this...just because I say so.


For the story today:

Well, my bf/ex-bf are in an odd place right now. We are taking a two month break...but we still act like we are going out. Holding hands and kissing and stuff...but things changed last night.

I hope you recall from a couple posts back when I said that there was this Ghanaian guy that I wanted to set a Ghanaian friend up with. He came over to my apartment yesterday...and long story short...he kissed me...for a decently long period of time. And I kind of let him. If you all really want details...I can post it later. I shouldn't have let that happen...but I am somewhat attracted to him. I know that's the point of this break, to try other people. Just so that we are sure that we are meant for each other. The break was moreso for me because he really wants me to tell my parents about him by the end of the year. But you all know the story, I'm not sure about telling my parents. They would be completely against the relationship because he's black-american.

And of course bf/ex-bf is sending me mixed signals. Keeps telling me to try him out...and that hopefully soon I will realize that he is the best guy for me. But then he at times tells me to just tell him that I am in love with someone else and not interested. To be honest...I am a little interested. Maybe it's because I want to take the easy way out. But at the same time, I don't know what my parents will do when I tell them. Will they make me change schools, stop paying my school fees, force me to break up with him...etc? This all referring to bf/ex-bf. I guess I should let things play out for a bit...

: - /

I know I'm supposed to do that song question tag thing...but I'll have to put it off again. Don't really plan on tagging anyone for it anyways.

So my boyfriend came back a couple of days ago...or should I say ex-bf. Decided yesterday to take a two month other people. You know, see if things were really meant to work out.

The Story of the Weekend

Okay, as you know, this past week was my birthday! Nothing much happened on the actually birthday, just went and bought some cake , and juices for my birthday celebration on Friday night. I also went out with some friends to get some Chipotle burritos afterward, and while a friend and I were getting seated, another friend told me that the guy who rang us up asked if I had a boyfriend. I just rolled my eyes and didn't say a word. Then I went to a soccer game...all of this happening after class and lab and whatnot.

So Friday night...this is where the real story is. Anyways, some friend's and I gathered at a friend's apartment eating cake, and having some drinks before we went out. A friend of mine who went to a neighboring school gave us all a ride, since none of us would be in the right mind to...So yeah, we get to the club...and the place is packed...and with some cuties too.

But yeah, it was a great night of dancing. I was surprised at how many guys wanted to dance with me. Like...two years ago, when I would go out with friends, I averaged two guys a night. This was at least ten, and even then I would be dancing with one guy...and another guy would grab my arm. I don't do that bent over...hands on the ground kind of dancing or anything of that sorts, so please...don't get the wrong idea lol. But yeah...that happened a couple of times, and trying to accompany friends the bathroom, I would get pulled as well. I guess things have changed in two years (remember I said I didn't really go out last school year)?

But yeah...this one conversation was funny:

Sunglasses in Club Guy: Wow. You are the most beautiful girl that I have seen here. You look different from all the other girls and I've been watching you tonight. I just wanted to talk to you for a bit.
ELNG: Yeah...sure, I bet you say that to all the girls.
SCG: No, really I mean it. I'm not even kidding, you are probably the only one that I will remember tomorrow.
ELNG: Ummm...well you are drunk, so I doubt you will remember me tomorrow.
SCG: You are right, but if I was sober, I would remember you tomorrow.
ELNG: Uhhh...okay.
SCG: You remind me of the girls from back home.
ELNG: Where is home?
SCG: Atlanta
Was that supposed to be a complement?

So then SCG and I dance for a bit...meanwhile he would keep holding onto my dress from the front (he wanted to dance face to face)...and then I guess would keep trying to touch my face? I mean, he would bring his hands up, and I would put my hands up...hard to explain. But yeah...then he asked if he could kiss me, and I said no...he started wa o, see me see trouble. When he realized I was not going to allow him a kiss, he tried to take it by force. Kept leaning into me...and then I started leaning back...the more I leaned back (his hands were around my waist)...the more he leaned forward. At some point he realized he was not going to get anything and decided to just kiss my forehead. Probably that was the story of my night. But yeah...apart from the usual guys trying to place their hands on places where they don't belong...that was all.

One of my friend's also started getting a little too flirtatious with my friend who gave us a ride. I don't know...I may stop bringing my male friends around her...she wants to flirt with all of them saying that they are all cute. Anyways...I am thinking of setting her up with this guy who has been talking to me lately. I'm not quite sure about this whether or not he likes me...if he does...I better set them up fast. He's cute, no doubt about it, they are both Ghanaian (not that that is the deciding factor), but I think that they might get along well. So...I'm going to get to work on that.

This male friend of mine thinks that he likes me...actually he and my boyfriend think that every guy likes me. Their idea is "assume every guy likes you unless they prove you wrong." you guys use this kind of thinking? Tell me what you all think. And this accurate or not?


*P.S. That music tag thing will be coming up in my next post lol.
