My sister’s husband, and her kids recovered from Covid. That is the only good news i’ve had all year, other than my brother and sister in law getting their vaccines. And my nephew turning 21 on April 1.
As my fathers elder sister passed away, its good to have something positive or praiseworthy to be thankful for. I have 3 nephews and 3 nieces and i’m grateful for their good health.
Also my mother has been in and out of the hospital and hasn’t gotten the virus.

All good to hear. And you’re right, good news has been particularly precious for the past year. It’s nice to hear stuff like this.
My family is also doing well, including my elderly grandma - none of us have got covid, touch wood, and my granny has had both doses of the vaccine now. It’s pretty much just a remaining period of seeing how long it’ll be until it’s safe enough for lockdown to ease off.

I just asked out a girl on a whim and she’s freaking out but in a good way. We’d been chatting for hours with her friend. I didn’t wanna do it until the end, so I did it as they were gonna leave. She says she’ll get back to me on the answer, and she visibly overwhelmed. It didn’t seem dismissive or anything, I genuinely think she wants time to think it over. She said she’d rarely been asked out before, so that’s why she was so shocked. Felt really good honestly.

Yeah sorry to hear that. It’s good that you asked and made a move at all though! It’s more than likely the rejection wasn’t because of you, but because she just wasn’t ready for a relationship and that’s ok.

I thought “I’m not ready for a relationship” is just something people made up to avoid having to simply say no.

Yeah, I’ve learned my lesson. I know “I’ll think it over” usually means no but the way she reacted seemed so positive. Alas, she gave me a clear “no” the next day.

I’ll take this conversation to the bitching thread to avoid bringing the mood down. On the bright side, I’ve made new friends this semester, including one pretty close one!
