I also noticed you saying that you didn't want the relationships to overshadow your social life/life outside of romance -- I'm in total agreement with you there. Do you want to talk more about how this has come up in your relationships?
In general, I have noticed especially when finals are coming up and it’s so cold from where I am at, its hard for me to sleep and its hard to get out of bed in the mornings. I’m not sad, but I also do get tired in the middle of the day. This is especially hard when talking to people, especially when the Californian girl wanted to talk the second time and I didn’t answer because I was sleeping. She wants to talk to me more and I also want to talk to her, but feel guilty because I am coming into finals and I need the sleep.
It’s just mainly from her side because I do stuff more than her, like also cat sitting, Animal Crossing, helping other people, college apps and school projects. And yes, I have got to work on films as well. Other friends or understand and are busy in the same way, with work and commitments.
Sometimes in general I also feel like I forget about stuff like forget to answer texts, even though I am on my phone because dinner is ready or mom or dad is doing something with me.
