More Developments With Others...

Clearly I don't have enough time to fully write about this tonight, but some interesting things were said when I got home from work yesterday, which may have implications for tonight, depending on how busy work is. Consider the following excerpt of the chat I had with Squeeze upon getting home, edited slightly to protect / respect her privacy:

So that's... interesting. One of the problems she mentioned before was that things were moving too fast (not between us), and I have to admit I'm just starting to feel the same way. I am truly not opposed to going to meet her as a friend to somebody who is in need of one, but I've never been in this position before, so as I was thinking to myself on the way home yesterday, I'm effectively "flying by the seat of my pants". I hope I understand the metaphor, anyway, because that's the best way I can think of to describe it. It's just... I want to be there to help people - not just her, but the focus is mainly on her in this case - with problems, but I think I'm getting way too much into feeling like I'm expected to give advice, which I can't always do. I could meet her in person, but what would be expected of me there? Talking some more, or just finding other things to do? I'm just really uncertain, but it's hard, because it's only natural to want the other person to be happy, meanwhile one has to find a way to keep themselves happy at the same time. I did start talking to her a bit about what might happen in February with Xion and Chris last night, so we could pick up on that next time we talk, or we could try to talk about my own feelings about everything, so I can say "I'm willing to keep at this, but under the following condition(s)". If you are reading this, Squeeze, I don't want things to actually change just yet, but I need to figure out what I am and am not comfortable with, really.

In other news, work last night went pretty well, apart from it being too warm inside. I really enjoyed walking home in the snow, and even told myself that if it was still snowing on my way home, I'd stop at Tim Hortons for a drink, so I did, and that was a nice treat. Even if I had been offered the chance to go home early last night, I wouldn't have wanted to, because there was extra cleaning I wanted to take care of at the end of the night, but who knows what could happen tonight? All I know for sure is that if I don't leave quite promptly, I'm going to be late. I didn't mean to be back to this again, but I might as well leave now, and hope to walk quickly enough~
