My feeling is that it is a strong possibility. I would really not want to speak with her anymore after she said no to the date. But if you still want to talk to her then try the nod. If she does not return it then I would not bother with her anymore for any reason.

Okay, I will try the nod.

Okay, let me know how you do if you get the chance. See you later and good luck.

Okay, I might have the opportunity tomorrow. See you later.

Hi;

Hope you get the opportunity with IY rather than C.

Thanks, I hope so too. Hope I can catch up with IY at some point, it's been so long since I've talked to her.

She might not even remember you.

She definitely remembers me, she has said "hey _____ (my name)" a few times.

Bring ID with you in case she has forgotten you completely.

Saw IY today, she was just dropping off some stuff to her friend and left. Don't think she saw me, I was at the back of the room.

I noticed that C put her name down for an 11:20 appointment next Wednesday. I don't think I'll try to intercept her though.

I was also doing some maths work in that same room when PJ suddenly came up to me and asked me if she could borrow a sheet listing all the topics on chemistry, so I gave it to her. Oddly, she took the sheet, and instead of going back to her desk, just stood next to me and read it instead. Or maybe she just needed one quick piece of information, I'm not sure. It may not mean anything.

Personally I do not know what to think of PJ. One of my best friends whom I've known for several years says that she is really full of herself. I think I know what he means. I have seen her display that kind of behaviour before and she seems to expect perfection from teachers and she told me all about how her parents have come in and complained on her behalf. Her parents are REALLY well-off, as in, both have PhDs and when I saw them on parents evening they were really dressed up and just generally posh. When I told PJ that I said I was even considering not going to uni next year because I don't have much money (my family don't earn much money, it is just enough to get by), she seemed to not understand me at all, telling me that finance "shouldn't be an issue". Well, it is for me and for lots of my friends who only earn a small percentage of the national average... what I am basically saying is that PJ may be a 'snob'.

Yes, she is a snob. Listen, you can not be too analytical about people. If you start to look at us with a microscope you will see that the whole human race is flawed. You will have to accept people the way they are.

Nothing wrong with growing up poor. I grew up and lived in a ghetto my entire life.

I accept it but I don't think I'd like to be with someone like that.

I am sorry to hear that. The place I grew up was pretty traumatising.

Well then you better hope you do not fall for her.

Who knows, I might find a quality I really like about her, but I haven't found one yet.

Went to a 2-hour class on curve sketching at another school today, just sketching interesting functions like e^(e^x) or ln(ln(lnx)). They paired us up with other people but I was pretty annoyed, because I wanted to be with one of the girls, but I got a guy instead. They run the class every 2 weeks, there are a few cute girls there that I'd like to talk to but didn't get to today. Supposedly the next classes will be on number theory, combinatorics and series...

Sounds like some good classes. Sign me up, I'll be right over.

I would have liked some mechanics thrown in there too.

Yecchhh! Cancel my plane reservations.

What's wrong with mechanics?

Also, do you think I should wait for PJ to e-mail me or is it time to e-mail her again? I am getting frustrated that she has not told me if she has feelings for me yet.

I hate all physics.

Refresh my memory. Did you ask her that in your email?

Hmm. I like it only when it involves lots of mathematical techniques.

No, I did not ask her. I'm not sure if it is the right time, but I want to get her in a position where it would be a good time for her to admit it. Then again, she did ignore my last e-mail out of spite, and would someone who liked me really try to spite me?

Maybe. They have a mean streak in them a mile wide.

So what do I do? I was the last person to e-mail PJ. Is the ball in her court?

I think so. Maybe you should wait.

Okay, I will wait.
