Melinda and Jake. Day 10.

“Reality minus Expectations equals Happiness”

 

Melinda

1. Tell us about today. How is your bae doing?

You guys, I don’t have much to say today. We just talked on the phone and I tried to convince him of a conspiracy theory that I believe in until he went to watch the last two minutes of the game and I went back to watching The Bachelorette with my amigos. Bae’s doing well. He got to graphic design and podcast listen at work and he did a stand up show again and he said it was better than last week so it sounds like a good day.

2. HAPPY DAY TEN! In ten words (or less, we ain’t stingy), sum up what you’ve learned so far.

Love's a choice. Maybe liking someone is a choice too.

3. Scale from 1-10 how would you rate your chemistry?

4 - I don’t feel like we’re really connecting. And just now I'm realizing, maybe I confuse chemistry and compatibility. Or maybe you can't divorce chemistry from compatibility. It's hard for me to feel like I have chemistry with someone when I don't feel like we're our wavelengths are quite in sync.

4. Gif or meme to represent your feelings

1. Tell us about today. How is your bae doing?

Today we only were able to talk on the phone. I listened to a podcast today with Elon Musk on the Joe Rogan podcast and they talked for a while about Artificial Intelligence and how worried Elon Musk is about it. I realized Elon Musk is the nearest thing this world has ever had to an actual Tony Stark. And listening to him talk about how AI is going to be a huge problem in the near future was a little unsettling so talking about that was a good chunk Melinda and my's conversation. Then it merged into her talking about how worried she is that the government is listening to everything we're saying and I said that didn't bother me because I ain't got nothing to hide. But that didn't matter to her, she still seemed very concerned about it. So we debated it for a bit. Maybe she's so worried because she's got something to hide! I'll ask her that tomorrow night. At the end of the conversation I said I gotta go, the Blazers and Warrior's game just went into overtime and she said good because the Bachelor was starting. It was the perfect fork in the road for us to go our separate ways for the evening.
