Today I started my newest GED course. I had 24 enrolled, but 14 showed up. I guess that is pretty good considering this is a Saturday class. I was a bit worried about this class because of the number of young people who had dropped out. The group seems to be a good group. I even had two girls score a perfect score on the Official Practice Test in Science that we took this afternoon.
I have a date in two hours. I am a bundle of nerves! This guy and I have really hit it off on the phone, and exchanged pictures, etc. I hope he likes the me he sees. I figure I'm almost 29 years old. The only person I can be is myself. I feel that I am pretty consistent on a day to day basis, and there is no need to pretend to be anyone else. (Not saying that I do, but I do think this is a common practice when you are younger. You try to "mold" yourself into the person you think that guy might be interested in.)
The only thing special I have done for this date was to get a manicure and pedicure. Trust me, the pedicure was WAY overdue. I think the pedicure was needed for anyone who had to look at my feet during sandal season. :)
Also just another small suggestion that has helped me as a Post-Op: If you are going to a major restaurant, look up the menu online. This way you have time to really think about the best choices that are DS friendly on the menu. I am nerdy, and like to plan ahead. I think this has helped me to make better choices than perhaps if I had felt pressured to make a quick decision at the restaurant table.
I'm off to get ready for my date. Fun times.
