when we met. d/diary.

Note: this is stolen from myself, slightly edited. It’s a throwback to the 2018 A-to-Z challenge. I wrote a story (based on my real-life college experience) as a series of diary entries. This is the entry where I meet the guy. THE guy.

Dear Diary,

I’ve decided that chemistry is my favorite class. I’ve always been more of a math girl than a science girl, but I have a good reason for my newfound love of chemistry. A few good reasons…

Reason #1: Chem is at 11 am. So I’m actually awake for it.

Reason #2: Professor Doctor Strange is awesome. Of course that’s not his real name. He’s really Dr. Davis… but he has a sexy accent and totally reminds me of Doctor Strange. So I’ve christened him thusly.

Reason #3: I didn’t know anyone in the class so I sat at an empty table and figured I’d have some random partner. But no one sat with me. Stupid odd number of students in the class. But! Dr. Strange said he’d have to be my partner. I was totally fine with that… although I should not be having impure thoughts about my professor. But I’m not going to stop. Fuck… I hope I pass the class! Failing would be embarrassing. Especially with my professor partner.

Reason #4: I lost sexy-accent-professor as my lab partner. That’s not the good part of this reason, though. This is: We have an even number of students in the class now. Someone transferred in. So I got him for my partner.

Mr. Hottie. The guy I saw at dinner the day I moved in. The guy I’ve been dreaming of seeing again. And now he’s my lab partner.

Mr. Fucking. Hottie. Is. My. Lab. Partner.

Oh my god. This kind of thing never happens to me.

My heart is beating so fast. I need to chill the fuck out.

p.s. — I guess this is cheating—using something I wrote a long time ago—but I thought it was perfect for this. If you want to read the whole story, you can! Dear Diary | A to Z 2018

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. 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.

    I hope it’s not cheating to re-use material if it’s right for the theme because of it is I’ve been cheering a lot!

    It was fun reading your diary (with permission).

  2. This was so interesting to read! I also have a question, you can choose to answer or not to- did the guy look somewhat like the one you’ve put a picture of?
