School Update #45,347

On the waitlist at NYU.

I am the waitlist queen! Come on, someone drop off the waitlist of a NYC school and give it to me. Otherwise I am off to San Francisco where I know just about no one (my lovely bf from college in Seattle barely counts as my driving is so terrible she will have to come down to see me every single time, and I will make her!)

In the interim I am contemplating two very loaded questions:

1. Is it ever okay to date one of your ex's friends? Like if the friend was never that good a friend of theirs and you never had any inclination until you just recently saw each other again and you thought, well I liked his friend...why not this? It seems icky, but I think I am running out of people that I like enough to date. I am impossible!!

2. Sex with an ex is always a terrible idea right? Even if you can emotionally handle it? Even if you think one day you might get back together, or not get back together, as long as you're clear and they are clear and it's just fun.

Okay I know the answers to both of these is NO NO NO. But just wanted to ask. With my latest best friend in Chicago and no boyfriend/best friend to speak of in the close vicinity, I start to ask these crazy questions to myself. That's where you, the awesomely un-crazy, come in. Help me guys!

Your Macbook doesn't have the '毅力' key?

Time to upgrade.

I dated my ex's friend. Actually a couple of them. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Not sure about the sex w/ an ex. It's probably not a great idea, especially if you are dating his friend ; )

Aside from selfishly wanting you on the better coast...

What are you doing to get yourself off the waitlist? Isn't this the time to get scrappy? Ask for an interview? Meet an admissions counselor?

as for the rest - I'm OK with #1 as long as it's not a BEST friend. #2, really not a good idea, and no matter what you think, you can't both handle it emotionally.

They tell me I can't do anything to whine about the west coast until april 15. Wah!

OK but now I got into 2 schools in San Fran and hate NY at the moment so you might just get me out there...
