Amazing timing... and a happy beginning?

I should be studying for my language exam tomorrow, but I had to write with some happy news. All my drama has been just that.

My old boss and I were talking in the parking lot tonight. She gave me the same advice as my therapist that since I have nothing to lose to give KT a call and ask him out to a movie for Saturday. (She also reminded me that "it was okay when [I was] 22 with a tiara on [my] head to wait for a guy to make a move, but now [I ]need to try a little harder.") It was on my mind all day. So when I got home I drafted an e-mail to send to him Wednesday.

"Hi KT,

I thought write and ask how you're doing. What kind of trouble did you get yourself into over the weekend? ;) I took my mom out for dinner on Friday, and we strolled through the R Shopping Center on Saturday. It was nice to have her visit for a bit.

I will be officially done with class tonight. [Exhale] I hope I'm ready for this test. I thought we could catch up tonight and wanted to know when would be a good time to call tonight."

Well, there's no need to send it now. Just as my 10pm show started, the phone rang. I left my friends to go into another room and answered. Wow, it was KT. We chatted a little about our weekends. He was confused as to whether I had been gone and I clarified that I was entertaining my mom. It was a short talk because he knew I needed to get back to my friends.

Basically, he suggested that we could go have dinner and see a movie on Saturday night. We're both curious about "V for Vendetta." I suggested that we both look into what other movies might be coming out this weekend and talk again on Thursday. I wanted to make sure that I said I'd call so that we don't just exchange a dozen e-mails the next couple days. It's so funny that we both had the same idea (but I'm glad he beat me to it ;) ).

Wheee!!! I feel so silly to be so relieved and happy about this. After all the ranting and overthinking... . Thank goodness I went to the gym tonight because it really helped clear my mind and stop worrying.

writing email exchanges back and forth can get so frustrating. i've also wondered why things have to be like a tennis match ... if he's interested enough, he should be man enough to make a move beyond email and ask for a date. sounds like KT's got the right idea, though :) good luck!
