Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
Jack’s parents invited me over today to help plan his birthday. They said we’ve been together for over a year and a half now, so that pretty much makes me family, and I get to help plan my boyfriend’s party.
That’s nice of them. But I’m not good at that kind of thing.
So I basically just nodded at all the right places and said “sounds good to me”.
We’ll have it next weekend, even though his birthday is on the 24th. He has school, after all.
They were talking about having a party for me at the same time, and I said no, they’re invited to my party if they want to come, but this is for him. They seemed satisfied with my answer. I wonder if that was a test. They’re not above testing me sometimes. I think I fail a few, but pass a few too, so it works out I guess. They never forbade us…
And after my birthday, they can’t.
But that doesn’t mean they don’t have leverage…
I just realized that I probably actually have enough money to buy a house, but I also think considering that I want to go to school in Tokyo, that might be a terrible idea. But if I can afford it, maybe an investment property isn’t the worst idea. I’ll talk to Dave and Sabby about it. Even if I were to do that, maybe it’s not the right time.
It’s a little… weird… having to make my own decisions now, isn’t it?
I owe it to them to be responsible, I think. Sabby’s been really pounding that into me, and she’s right. It’s too easy not to be, y’know?
Anyway… Allison left today (after we fed her grilled cheese sandwiches with sugar free maple syrup) but all the other girls stayed over. We went to the mall and wandered around, and had something from the food court. It’s always fun going with them, but we mostly just window shop. Now we’re all full of pizza, playing games and about to get ready for bed.
