Life, Shane and the Persuit of Happiness

It's what's on my mind, and yours too. Well, at least that bit about happiness...

Whew. It's been a while, friend. ALOT has happened too, let me update you...
First off I must say that, over all, my life has been steadily improving over the last few weeks. I've been feeling great, getting over the demon poison oak, getting decent grades, and (hold your breath) I MET A COOL GIRL! Yes, she is very cool, and so very cute. The amazing thing about this is that I think I might actually have a chance with her! Here's the story:
So I had basically given up on finding a girl and so I resolved to let the chips fall as they may - who knows, maybe I'd get lucky. This attitude somehow actually seemed to help me relax a little and my overall mood was much better than depressing. Well, the days did go by, I got poison oak, which sucked, but I got rid of it. Unfortunately, I had to take Prednisone for it, which made me a bit irritable, but I got over that too. So, one Saturday night my friend invites me over to his apartment to just kick back a couple San Miguel's and have a good time. So my roomate and I head on over, not even prepared to party with females, totally unsuspecting. This friend of mine was apparently trying to hang out with this girl that lives on the otherside of the apartment complex, and so that's where we ended up, playing dirnking games and generally hanging out. So there I am, and I notice that, well I've actually noticed this much earlier, that one of my friend's love interest's roomates is really cute and I'm really getting this cool vibe from her. That's not to say at this point she's necessarily in to me or anything, but she's just naturally and constantly impressing upon me in various ways, and I'm just hanging on her every word and move. Several of us ended up cruising down the road to Chili Peppers and have this crazy little adventure with some guy we've never even met and, well, that's a whole 'nother story. But anyways, the story ends in a positive way - we end up spending the night together. That's not to say we "slept" together, in quotation marks, but we really actually just talked all night, all four of us - my friend ended up in his "friend's" bed and we we're all in the same room together. We didn't go to sleep until the sun was comming up. It was all very innocent, really! Now, being that I haven't ever actually slept with a female before I really didn't know what to do. So I just layed there, so very, very happy and content. You know, she was just so beautiful when she was sleeping, I found myself holding my breath. We slept in till noon or so, and from there I didn't really keep track, I was still in a daze. And I stayed that way for several days. My thoughts were drifting from whether or not I made a good impression to how I would ask her to dinner or coffee or ? That pretty much brings us to the present. I resolved not to go over there today, so that I don't seem smothering or pushy, but it seems so silly. I just really want to talk to her right now and just learn about her. I mean, when I think about it, we really don't know alot about each other. I want to know though, you know? Hopefully this weekend will work out. I really hope so, things have been going so well...
