To start a new paragraph here, only because I don't want this entry to just be one large paragraph, I really have to just sit back and smile looking at how things have progressed between us. We started out just getting to know each other, and it was nice (at least for me) to have / be talking to a friend in the same city (because Totts hadn't added me to her Skype list yet then), then I installed Skype, and we got to know each other better / feel closer as friends, then we slowly but surely turned into best friends, and now, we're seeing each other (which I feel is worth pointing out, because I feel good / happy to say it now). It's fun how much things can change in about half a year, isn't it? I look back at those old chats, and see her talk about how she feels like she's always there for other people, but nobody is ever there to care for her, and, quite notably, how she is a "timid girl", and thus needs a timid guy, and I just wonder how much of that is what brought us together. I don't know that I'm always timid (unless that's covered by being reserved / keeping to oneself), but I like to think even just through talking about things / being there for her, she has one more person who cares for / wants to be there for her.
That said though, it's time for my usual late leaving for work thing. Rather frustratingly, Heather never showed up for her shift yesterday, so Mary had to come back and close, which ended up not being busy at all, so I'm really, really hoping Heather does show up tonight, and it's ridiculously busy for our whole shift. Spiteful? Yes. I would absolutely take the opportunity to rub it in by saying "I can't believe this. Last night was completely the opposite with how busy it's been". I wonder if I'll get that chance~
