So, my boyfriend and I moved into our little apartment on Thursday!! (Details to follow in another post, eventually… we’re still unpacking and getting settled.)
Together, we had almost everything we needed to start out in our own. Some of what we didn’t have but needed was given to us by my mother’s “man-friend,” including a kitchen table, toaster oven, and an awesome air conditioner (we’re in the middle of a heatwave, FYI). My aunt and cousins also gave us a $50 giftcard to Target, which helped us get some of what we still needed, including 2 curtain rods, 2 blackout curtain panels, a large bath mat, and a dish drying rack.
Today, Nino and I went to my dad’s house: originally because Nino wanted to change his oil and vacuum his car; however, we ended up just doing 3 loads of laundry and frying chicken. While one of our loads of laundry was in the wash, we went for a walk on the train tracks behind my house. When we got back, we packed up and said goodbye to my dad, and headed back to our apartment.
That was over 6 hours ago. I’m getting my things ready for tomorrow — classes start, and I have a statistics class at 10:30am (barf). I happened to look in my wallet to see how much money I have for the week, and I found a $100 bill that was NOT there before!
I think that my Daddy-Man snuck some good-luck/start-off money into my wallet when I wasn’t looking. 💚💚💚
"why on Earth would I stoop to his level by doing something like that? Just because someone has wronged me does not necessarily mean that I have to even the score." Are you saying that he's cheated on you before?

No, I am not saying that my boyfriend has cheated on me. What I am saying is that if someone — regardless of WHO that person is, whether it be a boyfriend, friend, acquaintance, sibling, or whomever — wrongs me, I do not feel the need to seek revenge on that person.
Because I am not a fucking child. Because this is the real world. Because I will not waste my precious time and energy on stupid bullshit like “seeking revenge.”
I am a grown woman who happens to be moving into an apartment with her boyfriend TOMORROW.
I don’t know who you are or how you think that you know me, but I suggest that you redirect your energy toward something more useful and beneficial to you.
Thank you for your concern, if you can call it that. But I don’t care what you think about me, I don’t think about you at all.
Hey there. Your boyfriend doesn't really seem to respect you. You should blow one of his friends.

Well, that was rude. Do you come from a planet where it is acceptable to make uninformed statements about people?
Whether or not my boyfriend respects me is no concern of yours. Even if it appears that my boyfriend “does not respect me,” why on Earth would I stoop to his level by doing something like that? Just because someone has wronged me does not necessarily mean that I have to even the score. The fact that he could someday lose a Queen for being a buttheaded fool would be punishment enough. No matter how furious I become with him (and believe me, I have thought about stabbing him with a paring knife), I will never do anything to deliberately hurt him mentally, physically, or spiritually.
But maybe that’s the difference between us.
And anyway, as nice as his friends are, that’s all I see them as: my boyfriend’s friends. And I’m not in the line of “blowing” guys that I am not in love with, or ruining friendships/relationships. I genuinely enjoy seeing him with his friends. They’re real, lifelong best friends, the kind that most people can only hope to have. It’s so funny to see them interact with each other, I could watch them goof off for hours. I would hate for them to lose each other.
And by the way, “blowing one of his friends” sounds like a shitty line from a shitty teen movie. Grow up.
