redeemed. ish.

so remember this post? yeah. i totally redeemed myself.
i don’t know how i feel about it though…

situation: i’m in the library and there’s guy who is quite good-looking sitting kind of by me. i keep remembering my cafe rio incident so i decide to take action this time…

plan: i write cute guy a note that says

you’re extremely attractive
just so you know :)
[insert my number here]
action: i proceed to get up, check myself in the bathroom (not my hottest looking day but i‘m still fine), walk up to him with 
an awkward ‘hi’ [from me], 
an awkward look [from him], 
an awkward ‘here’ [from me], 
an awkward ‘thanks’ [from him], 
an awkward ‘yeah…’ [from me], and then i walk away without a second glance back.
follow up: i was laughing out loud to myself on the way to institute in the marb. i didn’t really expect anything, but it was fun and i didn’t feel that same lame regret i did from cafe rio. but about a half hour later i get a text from an unknown number that says
thanks haha. my name is [his name here]
reaction: whaaaaaat????? was not expecting that. was slightly freaking out. was at a loss at what to say. so the ever so cool and suave ahlin texts back
you’re welcome :) my name’s ahlin
should i have said more? probably. did he text back? nah. but it’s whatever.
it’s not over though.
i had to go back to the library to work on a paper and, lo and behold, he’s still there! that’s only slightly awkward… so i just do my studying and kind of ignore him, especially when he walks past me once or twice. i made sure to have like five encyclopedias right by me so he knew i had to be in that section, i couldn’t go anywhere else.
we didn’t talk. but it’s cool. now he has my number. and my name. and i’m pretty sure if you search just ‘ahlin’ on facebook, i am the only one who comes up who isn’t [fully] swedish and ahlin is there as a first name, not as a last name [ahlin is a swedish surname. cool parents].
and if somehow he finds this
hey. what up. call me.
