Aaaaaaaand that info (as I saw a posting on Facebook earlier for that event) has inadvertently caused me to deduce the city of my fellow Albertan. Without saying what it is, since clearly you seem to want to keep it private, I believe that you and I, sir, are natural-born enemies. Have at thee!!!!Added in 5 hours 23 minutes 24 seconds:
That last few weeks have been really stressful. We got back to school after winter break and just hit the ground running. More homework than I’ve ever dealt with in my life, haven’t had a lick of free time. Finally it seemed like things were slowing down after I got in this giant assignment.
So today I had a date planned that I was really looking forward to, but she cancelled. Wasn’t her fault, it was a genuine excuse, but then as we texted after I said something stupid and now it’s weird and idk if I’ll get to see her ever after all. It was like the one good thing I had on the horizon in the near future. Well whatever, moving on, I check all my class syllabi, and guess what, there’s still a ton to do. I basically have to get six classes worth of material done this weekend, which is a lot. So I study from getting home to about 11:30 - which is basically what I do every single day.
Finally I decide I’ve earned a break, and it’s Friday after all, so I pop in Godzilla vs King Ghidorah. I’m about fourteen minutes in when my roommate comes in, asks what I’m watching, and then immediately suggests we watch Bandersnatch instead, that new Black Mirror thing on Netflix where you choose your own adventure. I’m really not in the mood, I’ve seen it before and I just want to chill out with Godzilla, but I’d already told him it was a great thing to watch with a buddy, and I’ve blown him off a lot recently for studying. I think it would have been totally fair for me to just say I wanted to finish my movie, but skreeonk me I guess I’m too nice, so very reluctantly I say sure. Then as we start it I find out he’s seen it already too, he just really wants to get a different ending. And as we go, it turns out I did all the opposite choices he did the first time, so we’re basically doing my version again. This guy is so disconnected sometimes - like, first of all I was already watching something. Like, it’s a shared tv so yeah he can ask to do something else, but his tone was just so like “I don’t respect what you’re watching so you must not either, of course you’re willing to drop it, let’s watch something new and cool”. Second of all, he just barrels along through this thing to get the experience he wants. I did end up getting a different ending than I’d seen before, and I guess I enjoyed it in the end, but damn I just wasn’t relaxed, I spent the whole time just being irritated at him but trying not to show it.
I dunno. I dunno what the point of that story is. None of it’s even that bad, I’m just feeling so strung out and worn right now from school and from a lack of a romantic life, and then everything today that was supposed to be good took a surprise crappy turn.
