No Rest for the Wicked.

I jumped the gun in my last post.

In my most recent Blogger confessional, the last comment I made was this:

- Found myself, for the first time in months, being wonderfully optimistic about life in Windsor. Things are starting to really turn around here.....schools almost done, volunteer is starting, and is most likely going to turn into a summer job.....and then theres the new guy....who i'm more than excited about....Not to mention it was almost 70 degrees here this past week. Life...this past week....was awesome.

Well...After feelings of finally beginning to feel settled...with new prospects, I got an email today that changed all of that.

I got in to teachers college...In Buffalo. 4 hours away from everything that I have established here, friends, volunteer...a new guy.....And in one email, my whole life became unsettled again. In a matter of 4 months, I will be moving back to St. Catharines, to live with my parents *shudder*, for a year while I do my Masters in Education.....

In one sense, i'm thrilled....I'm going to be able to get my degree, and travel the world with it. Which is what I wanted to do....but on the other hand...i'm sorta sad to know that i'm leaving everything I worked for here....And although I am happy about all the amazing friends i have made, and al lthe experiences I have had *like getting another degree, and shit like that* while I was here, I'm moving...again....picking up my life, and turning it upside down...again.

I need some advice. This new guy....i really like him...a lot. We spend every minute together, and blah blah blah....do I tell him i'm leaving, hang out for 4 months, and then call it quits? OR, call it quits now...before either of us gets too attached? I've done long distance....I promised myself never again. Its too hard. Who thinks what?

Tell him you are going, then hang out with him for the next 4 months. Who knows what will happen in the next 4 months.

Tell him to move his punk ass to Buffalo. Although, i think it's a probably a little soon for DTR this early in the relationship.

Miss Ash said...

Congrats!! I got your message today too, but i'm not home until Wednesday.

As for the guy, you've only known him for a few weeks at the most, see where it goes, you're just getting to know one another. Let him know of your plans and take it from there.

Jennifer - I told him....he was disappointed....but you're right....who knows what the next 4 months will bring.

Slop - Whats a DTR?

Miss Ash - Thank you thank you...although when your mom and sister called me today, I broke down in tears. They'll fill you in....They gave me some good advice.

Marcus said...

My advice:- enjoy the next 4 months.

Who knows what will happen tomorrow? Don't get your knickers in a knot about something that hasn't happened yet.

carpe diem and all that, you know?

rawbean said...

I agree - enjoy the next four months! It sucks for sure, but why start missing him now when you can wait 4 months?

Also, congratulations on getting in!

Princess Pessimism said...

Sigh...I wish you guys could have heard the disappointment in his voice when i told him...it broke my heart...but its nothing a few drinks wont take care of.

Liz said...

I say just ride him out while your still there and see what happens. Everyone gets along at first, but you might get annoyed by him in weeks. If you don’t find out now you’ll always think he was the one.

Princess Pessimism said...

Liz - You're absolutely right....Although, you said it more dirty than I would have. LOL

Brother In Law said...

You should tell him asap! It's only fair. Congrats on Buffalo, I know your niece's will be happy. Besides, I'm looking for a good babysitter!

Trib said...

Congratulations! and I think you did the right thing.

Princess Pessimism said...

MY BROTHER IN LAW!!! Welcome....Love that you're commenting. I DID tell him. He was disappointed, but what can you do? I'm going to live it up this summer, and not let anything stop me from having the best time ever. And you should have heard the girls, they were so happy when my mom told them.


Trib - I think i've made the best decision possible. Thanks

Lindsey said...

MOving back with the parents...are you sure you won't kill them? :0)

Princess Pessimism said...

Linny - Uhh...that remains to be seen. I dont want to live there, but I dont have a choice...and its only for 12 months.
