I got Nick his ukulele finally! Instead of hanging out today, he called me last night and asked if I was free. Instead of studying all night like I wanted to, I went out to get his ukulele and then he took me for ice cream. He's working today, which was why he had to change the plans, but normally he would just say he couldn't come out. I'm happy that this is happening. He's trying really hard to be better. That's not to say that he's bad, because he's not. He's actually quite great. But, when I see him become a little more selfless every single day, it makes me smile.
Another example - last night he asked if I wanted to go to Dairy Queen. I hate Dairy Queen. I love Baskin Robbins, though. I just settled for Dairy Queen because I would feel bad making him come to Baskin Robbins for me. I just feel better when I try to be as selfless as I can. I don't expect anything in return. So whatever, we're driving to DQ and he quickly switches lanes and goes into the Baskin Robbins parking lot instead. It made me happy. He's never done something like that before.
I like where we are, right here.
I like knowing that we're going to be okay.
I like knowing that this summer is going to be different than last.
Now, time to study!
