Grandma and Roommates

01 May 2007
Many of you know that we have been disowned from my dad's side of the family and for those of you who do not know about, I am not going to explain (it is really complicated). My grandma's birthday was earlier this month and we did not do anything for her since we were disowned. My dad decided to call her and ask her to come for dinner. We went out to dinner on Saturday.

We went out to McGrath's Fish House (BTW, it is really good). This is my grandma's favorite restaurant so we decided to treat her. When we got there, she was sitting there all smugly and ready to eat. She seemed excited to see our family, but I am not sure if it was fake or not (I am not sure if she still has hard feelings towards our family). There was awkward conversation between us and it was not that great to see her. All she cared about was my accomplishments so I can make her proud and feel like she is a good grandma (now I know where my dad gets it from). Nothing seemed real the whole night. I felt like I was being fake and I felt like she was being fake. The whole night was awful! There was a lot of awkward pauses and small talk. It was not good at all! It was interesting and I guess it went well, but I am not sure in what way (I guess in an awkward way).

Another event happening in my life is a new place. I moved into my first apartment and I do not know any of my roommates. I met one and we talked for about 5-10 minutes. He seems really nice and he is kind of cute. :) I have not met any of my other ones and I have not met the one I am rooming with. Who knows what they will be like? Will they like me? Will they hate me? What is going to happen? Right now I am sitting home alone. I do not know where they are and even if all of them are here. I have not seen anyone else all day. I guess it is not my fault. We will see what happens...

P.S. I am feeling a lot better after last week! Oh, thanks for dinner Calvin!

You'll have to tell me all about your new roommates. Fun and exciting? Party animals? Boring like nobody's business? RMs?

Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. Maybe the next time around things'll go better?
