10. Is your TC in a relationship? If yes, have you met their girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/etc.?
L is married, and I met her husband last year (or whatever November 2012 was). I met her kids the same day— I saw her at this Civil War exhibit thing at our library downtown. :) Her husband was really nice, and her kids were adorable.
I composed an e-mail to her that I will probably never send. It would be the best for my mental health, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.
why does this always happen to me ugh my counselor called me into the office to talk about financial aid stuff during L’s class— I specified that any period BESIDES L’s was fine. But of course she didn’t listen. Ugh.
Also I’m feeling so awkward about the whole chocolate covered strawberry thing, oh my gosh.
um WOW I am behind
1. Has your TC ever helped you with any personal issues?
Yes! That’s actually how we’ve grown so close… she’s really helped with my depression and ED over these past two years.
2. Have you ever embarrassed yourself in front of your TC?
Only every day that I’ve known her… one moment in particular stands out to me: we were hugging recently, and my hair actually got stuck on her earring and PULLED IT OUT OF HER EAR. It was so humiliating, oh my God. The perils of having curly hair are real.
3. What was your most memorable moment with your TC?
This is a tough question. But I guess it would have to be at the beginning of this year, the first day of school. I was so nervous— I had e-mailed her at the beginning of the summer basically asking what was going on with her, telling her that I missed her, etc. and she replied with a super short e-mail saying that she missed me too but that she was super busy with her husband’s wine event business right now, and that she’d email me back more sanely once the event was over. She didn’t until mid-August, and it drove me crazy. But then she told me why— that her husband had been in the hospital since right after the event, that her father had passed away… and I replied with a (hopefully) adequate sympathetic response.
Anyway, I went up to her classroom during lunch, shaking and breathing so shallowly that I thought that I was going to pass out. I remember that she was sitting on the edge of a desk, her hair was up, and she was talking to a girl that had been in my Honors English class (that she taught) last year. I was wearing platforms, so she heard me walking up to the classroom… when she saw me, she made the cutest little noise and looked at me so affectionately, and ran over to me and hugged me tight. Throughout the rest of our conversation that day, she kept touching me— putting her hand on my arm, and she stood super close to me as well. Oh my God, it was hard to stay conscious. The adrenaline that had built up before I saw her turned into super nervous energy once I was talking to her and she was right there in front of me, real, after three months of dreaming about her and oh my god.
Yeah, that would have to be the most memorable moment that I’ve had with her. Or at least, that’s the first one that comes to mind.
4. Have you ever thought of getting over your TC?
Check last week’s posts. It didn’t work at all.
5. What song would you use to tell your TC about your feelings for him/her?
Oh. Um. Wonderwall by Oasis? My Heart or All I Wanted by Paramore? I Wanna Be Yours by the Arctic Monkeys? I don’t know.
6. What would be the perfect way your TC would admit his/her feelings for you?
In her classroom, alone after school, while we were hugging.
7. What would be the perfect way you would admit your feelings for your TC?
Same as #6.
8. What is the one thing that made you fall for your TC?
Her voice. Unf.
9. Has your TC ever given you something as a gift?
Yes! She bought me a bracelet, because it “made her think” of me. :)
