Well...I talked to Shelby. Things went a LOT better than I thought they would!!! She said she kind of expected this was coming, and that she really didn't have a problem with it, except that she knows if her parents ever find out they would cut her off(they are really strict--we're not even supposed to have guys EVER spend the night at our place--even on the couch). And she said she would feel guilty taking their money when she would be saving so much. I really don't think she should feel guilty about the money thing, because what they give her now doesn't even cover all her bills. But I told her I understood how she felt about her parents, and we talked about it for a while. We both agreed that since his bed/dresser/clothes/movies and stuff are already here while he lives on base, there really wouldn't be that much of a difference between if her parents saw that now or later. And we could tell them that he's just storing his stuff here.
But anyway, her parents have never even seen what's in my room, so they probably wouldn't even suspect anything was different anyway. I told her I would work with her on everything if she agreed to the arangement. We both think that it is extremely unlikely that her parents would EVER find out, unless they just show up without telling us...but since they have only been here once and didn't even look into either of our bedrooms, and they really have no desire to come up here and visit anyway, I highly doubt they would find out.
I told her she should just take her time and think about it...and then she said, "I'll probably say yes...I mean, what else am I going to say?" I thought for sure she would say no. But she was really cool about the whole thing...even if she still says no, the conversation went a lot smoother than I expected and I feel great just to have everything off my chest. I have literally gotten a knot in my stomach the past few days EVERY time I have thought about the impending conversation, so thank God it went well.
Shelby and I went to this Aggie Women in Leadership thingy after we talked, and it was pretty good. The main thing we talked about was how while we are in college we should try to get an internship, study abroad, or both...and how it is important to go out of your comfort zone. I really, really want to get an internship and I know I need to start looking now for some good stuff.
Today I think I am skipping class. One of them was cancelled, and the other class is a joke...so I think I'm not going to go. I got to sleep in today--until 10:30. It felt soooo good you have no idea. I never get to sleep in so I really enjoyed it.
Not much else to write about today...I am just really happy about how it went with Shelby! woohoo! Everyone have a great day!
