Dear Diary,

Tonight was… unexpected… and it was…


Well, no, not perfect. Perfect would have involved at least partial nudity.

I have a huge chemistry test in two days. I had to study. Really study. No procrastination. No loud Randy-music. No knocks on my door. No dorm room distractions.

When I got to the library, I checked my favorite study spots until I found one that was deserted. I sat on the empty couch way up on the third floor and laid out my notes, my book, my lab reports. And I started reviewing. Especially the parts I missed when I was sick. But then I came to Ethan’s notes. The ones he copied for me. The ones with the cute little sad face at the bottom of the page. And I kind of stopped. To daydream.

I didn’t realize how distracted I’d gotten until I heard a voice ask if anyone was ‘sitting there’. I looked up and found Ethan smiling and pointing to the couch next to me. Immediately my heart sped up but I managed to smile back and say ‘no’… and he sat right next to me. Then I realized I was still holding his sad-face notes so I quickly put them down and grabbed my book. I don’t know if he noticed. I don’t know if it would have mattered if he did.

He wanted to study with me. And I wanted to study him.

I mean, with him…

Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
