Ok folks (especially those of you that have been following along with my interest in that girl) - here’s the deal.
I’m here at my parents from Friday
until just before the first day of spring semester classes.
That girl is probably not in the same state as my parents are
(and thus not in the same state I am right now).
So there isn’t a lot I can do, save send an e-mail.
I was really hoping to do something in person
- I hate feeling so bold on-line and so timid off-line.
Yet, an e-mail
(from this about 9.5 year old (I think) computer
on a very flaky dial-up connection
using Netscape 2.0)
remains my only option at present
(I don’t know her home (not at campus) phone,
instant messenger id, or anything like that).
So send I do. This hesitation that I have is not isolated.
There are some other things I have hesitation/anxiety about, and I will be doing much soul-searching/meditation in an attempt to resolve them (or at least improve their condition) - but that is something that this time here at my parents will be good for. (Perhaps in another post I’ll describe in more detail why I don’t discuss these sorts of things with my parents, as well as what some of these points of hesitation/anxiety are.)
I’m sorry I’ll be offline so much - at least until I manage to resolve the internet connection difficulties that have been plaguing the setup here for months. So I will be able to post less, and read e-mail less (in fact, if you send something in the past few days, I probably haven’t gotten around to reading it - it is such a chore trying to read e-mail via this setup here. :( ). Hopefully I’ll be able to change all this in the next few days/weeks.
Happy Holidays to all,
