Laci has started dating Zhou.
They've been dating for a few months now since the middle of the summer.
They're both sweet and silly. They are both majoring in biology, but Laci wants to be a vet and Zhou wants to be a teacher. I think he said that after graduation, he has to return to Kimikura and teach for three simyears as part of his tuition grant.
Laci says that it's too early in their relationship to worry about such things, but then she talks all night about the possibilities. She still has veterinary school to attend, so it's not like she can just get married right after graduation.
Sometimes my cousin overthinks things. I told her to just enjoy her time with Zhou. They're not engaged or even serious yet, so just continue to learn more about him.
I hope he helps her become a bit more laid back, at times she's so stressful to be around.
Not like Juliet.
Juliet and I have been friends since freshman year, we're both artists and we have a lot of things in common.
I guess it was only natural for us to take the next step.
I haven't told Laci because then she would insist on stupid double dates and stuff and that's not at all what I want.
Things with Juliet are...complicated. I guess romance for me is complicated.
I tried kissing guys and stuff in secondary school, but there were not sparks. So obviously, I'm not into guys.
I've been thinking about my options concerning art and school. I don't really need a degree to paint, but I guess it is nice to study under others. However, there is a much better school in Deux-Sèvres that I could transfer to for the last two years of my studies.
I wanted to talk to Laci about it, since we always talked about being roommates throughout university.
Before I could even start she said, "Don't tell me that you're gay, cause everyone knows that you and Juliet have a thing going on."
My mouth dropped. "I'm not gay! But I'm not not gay either...it's confusing, whatever, that's not what I wanted to talk to you about."
She was upset, but she said that she understood that there were better artists in Deux-Sèvres and that I would grow more artistically. That made me feel so much better. I told her about being asexual as well and she shrugged and said that it made sense. That I never really showed interest in anything that wasn't a paintbrush.
I'm going to miss Laci and Pierce University, but I think that I would enjoy Deux-Sèvres more. Now I just need to apply.
