Well, here I am, the typical mat maid falling for one of the wrestlers. Normally its no biggy, most stat girls are dating someone on the team. My big plot twist? I'm not only the team manager, but also, the coach's daughter. And unfortunately, daddy might not like me dating one of his kids. I mean, its not like he's a bad kid or anything, but let's face it. He's a high school boy. And high school boys talk to each other. What would people think if they found out he was dating a coach's daughter? Probably that he was only doing it to get out of log rolls at the end of practice. (Not that my dad would ever let him skip log rolls.) But people are people, and they will assume things. I know I shouldn't care what people think, and to be honest, I don't really. But I do care about what my dad thinks and this is his job. I feel like I shouldn't be creating issues for him at work because of my own selfish reasons. I just, don't know what to do at this point...
That being said...
I Really like this guy. I mean, obviously he's a wrestler which gives him like 10,000 brownie points. But its more than that, he's like REALLY shy, he always looks down and talks very quietly. But when you get him to open up to you, when you see him laugh... OH EM GEE. It just gives me the most amazing feeling. It's like, my heart is glowing, and melting all at the same time. And his family is WONDERFUL! He has a sister who is like, one of THE nicest people ever. And his mom! She is such a gem! His dad is sort of shy like he is, but he's still a great guy. and ARGHHHH I just, the more I think about him the more I'm imagining my life with him and how fun, and simple it would be. At this point, that's exactly what I'm looking for. I don't need to complicate things, I just want to spend all the time I can with him, and just, be with him.
But I have to wait.
I mean, he's a senior, so this is his last year being on my dad's team. So as soon as this season is over, there shouldn't be a problem with me dating him right? The only problem is he's like, a REALLY GOOD wrestler, so I'm sure he's going to state.. and that means I have to wait even LONGER! Arghhh. But oh well, I mean, if anyone's worth waiting for, its definitely him.(:
Wow. This has got to be one of my all time best stories.
On Wednesday night I was talking to my good friend Jonah and was telling him about the show "<tag>The Amazing Race</tag>", and how I wanted to apply this year. Jonah and I have gone on a lot of trips together and somehow don't grate on each other's nerves at all. I have a lot of respect for him and his abilities, so I thought he'd be a perfect partner for The Amazing Race. For those of you who don't know about this tv-tastic gem, it's basically a race / scavenger hunt around the world.
I meandered to the application site, downloaded the application, and began to check out the requirements. Guess when the due date for the tape was? Friday at 5pm, which meant that we had one day to create a 3 minute video, fill out the two 11 page applications and get some passport sized photos taken. Not one to back down from a <tag>challenge</tag> due to complete lack of time, I convinced Jonah to get on board.
