Show Us Your Life Friday


Matthew and Abigail met when they were 17, during their junior year of high school. They did a few class projects together, but didn't really know each other very well. When senior year rolled around, they had another class together, where they sat together, but they never hung out outside of class. During the second semester of senior year, they had government class with Mr. Gonzales. Matt sat behind Abby and flirted incessantly with her. However, still nothing came of it. After graduation, they gradually lost touch and only occasionally communicated through Facebook. In the summer of 2008, they began talking on Facebook again and agreed to go out on a date. They decided to go bowling and out to dinner. After a cute and confusing mix-up as to where the bowling alley was (Turns out that there are two AMFs on Bay Area!), they went on to bowl a wonderful game where they scored 120 points. When they added together their scores. Afterwards, Matt and Abby went to Olive Garden where they shared a delightful meal. They had such a great time, they decided to continue this dating thing despite the long distance. On October 10, 2008, they officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. They've been talking about marriage for quite some time now, and she's just waiting for him to officially pop the question!

Stubborn

I am stubborn. I am a strong willed person. I have been for as long as I can remember. On the bright side I rarely give up. But sometimes I should. Some days, I do well. I give in when I don't want to. I can be the bigger person and stop the argument.


Most days I can't.


This month, for instance. My roommate and I have been having a volume war. I posted a blatantly bitchy and passive aggressive status update on Facebook. And I didn't bother hiding her and all of our mutual friends from it, like I usually do. Because I was particularly pissed and very annoyed by the loud music emanating from her bathroom. (Some song called Again by flyleaf-look it up if you like ear torture.) Since then, our "relationship" has gotten worse. She's started playing her music louder than necessary. and I retaliate by turning up the TV. And posting Facebook status updates.

She still doesn't talk to me.

But I admit, I stopped trying.

But I swear she's playing that song over and over again because she knows I hate it.

Anyways, I'm being stubborn by not talking to her. And I seriously am being a child about it. Today, when she took her shower (with the song on repeat.), she was playing music in the bathroom. And it is so loud. It's so loud that I can hear it when I'm in my bedroom with the door closed. On the opposite side of the apartment. So I turned up my TV. Louder than I've ever turned it up. Until I couldn't hear her music anymore. (when the TV is at it's normal volume, I couldn't hear my TV over her music.) Because I am a stubborn person. And I just can't bring myself to give up first in this stand-off. There's only two more weeks of school.

But I don't like it.

She walks into the room and I can feel the hostility.

I know I'm being ridiculously stubborn.

I just can't bring myself to give in.

I might be stubborn, but I don't give up on things. That's kind of a good thing, right?
