It was a rather relaxing Thanksgiving with time to sleep in and sleep late. Around 6:00 PM today Kathleen contacted me to hang out for studying. The unpleasant part of this was she has called me up a little after Scott had left her apartment and she did not shower afterwards. I presume they had sex and she didn’t get to have her post-sex shower and feels “weird” the whole time we were out. It’s safe to say that destroyed the whole night and once we got to Barnes and Noble she wanted to her back to shower. She said I am a “nice guy” and I told her that I am “too nice” to the point where people take me for granted or use me. I told her not to try this crap on me again and she was smart enough to apologise me after on the phone realising the torture and nonsense she put me in.
As I was going home, I thought to myself: “There is nothing to really make me stay in New Jersey”. Unlike the Clerks 2 movie, the one thing that kept Dante staying was to look out for the well-being of his best friend Randall, and to be with his true love who was carrying his child. As for myself, there is not much to keep me staying: there is no strong woman to make me want to stay, most of my friends have relocated or easily accessible via the Internet, New Jersey is not appealing to me, and I have endured enough nonsense here. When Kathleen asked me what was on my mind, I lied to her and said it was my ill-uncle though that is not the case. I used to take the moral high ground when I am faced with judgment calls; now I just use my best judgment because not everyone will return acts of kindness in the right way (as I have learned).
On a positive note, Chika didn’t really cut me off; she was just pledging for her co-ed fraternity the entire time. However, she did make a clean break from her Japanophile/RONs days by reminding me she has moved on and only keeps in touch with Zuri…It is true; she really did sever all ties save Zuri from the RONs group and anyone who remotely reminds her of it. Both Beth and Ted ask me when I am going to get out of New Jersey. My answer is I have loans at the moment and I will have to independently figure this out without the help of my own family. I know Arbinet has an office in Hong Kong; it’s just figuring out a way to get the executive team and Chris to transfer me over there as either a Asian marketing guy or an Asian Corporate Trainer/Trade Specialist…just wishful thinking.
