Please check out my new blog, Quelle Belle: The Beauty Blog. I would really appreciate it! [Note: Considering the fact that I don't know any male makeup afficionados, I would say it's safe to say that this site is mainly for women.]

Tea and Texting

I recently found out some incredibly awful news. No, it's not as life-changing and traumatic as some things, but nevertheless I have learned a terrible lesson: Never text message overseas. You will most certainly rack up a $500 bill.

I know, I know. Stupid of me. Shouldn't I have known there was an international fee? Well, um.... oops?

Mom yelled at me about it at first, shrieking, "I told you! I told you!" (Which, by the way, she did not.) Dad looked at me with a disappointed air, and I hung my head in shame, my eyes wide open with shock, and my lips trembling. Slightly dramatic, but I was quite surprised. And ashamed I was, for truthfully, we simply can't afford $500. Especially not on a phone bill.

So now, I am working to pay it back. Not exactly an easy thing to do when you are not technically allowed to get a job in this country, or when you know that in a few weeks you will be back in boarding school with no opportunity to work there either. Online jobs work, but only if you can find flexible ones.

I think they should have online jobs for students. Someone should set up a website with opportunities for students, whether in high school or college, to not have to go out of there way to make money. I know I won't be able to work very much during the school year, as it will be my senior year and I'll be incredibly busy with college applications, a rigorous workload, and all the normal school things like heading clubs and completing community service requirements.


On a totally different note, I got stood up last night. Rather an awful experience for someone who, up until recently, had practically no self-confidence whatsoever. I was supposed to be home at 6:30 from my trip to the city with Mom, but we were an hour late. I thought it would be okay though, because he and I hadn't made any specific plans; we were going to figure it out when I got home.

Well, much to my surprise, instead of telling me what time would be all right to come over, he told me, "My ex moved back in."

Oh.

Talk about a disappointment. It's too bad, because I really was starting to like him too. What I found all the more confusing was that he was really puzzled as to why I was being curt and cold with him. Will men never understand? Of course I attempted to explain to him, as he seemed very keen to know why I was so upset, that it really had been a crummy thing to do. In what I suppose what supposed to be a friendly attempt to comfort me, he said, "Well, you showed me how much fun a girl can be." Oh, thanks.


And on top of it all, he would not stop asking if we could still hang out. "Have tea and talk," he said. Talk about what? Oh well, I suppose I'll figure it out one day, the whole dating game. That's what it truly is: a game. If you know the works, have a strategy, a technique, you can win. Hmm... maybe I should work out a game plan. You never know until you try.

Good God, don't feed into the "Let's have tea and talk" thing. He's trying to keep both hooks baited. Good girl - stay strong!
