Running into Phil!!

Phi!ip says:
Is that THE Katherine Chang?
Katherine says:
PHIL!!!!!!
Katherine says:
Can this be real or am I dreaming.......
Katherine says:
but it's only 4:30 PM...
Phi!ip says:
We're all in a state of constant dreaming
Katherine says:
I feel like I'm in the MATRIX...
Katherine says:
Caleb told me about your web site and I checked it out yesterday...it was very nice
Phi!ip says:
ah, glad you liked it
Katherine says:
what are you doing right now?
Phi!ip says:
doing research in the library
Phi!ip says:
Its half 12 in the morning here, which is probably why I never see you on
Katherine says:
yeah
Katherine says:
SO Caleb IS flying over to Oxford to see you then?
Phi!ip says:
Yep...its gonna be a blast. Too bad you can't come, but it seems as if its the best as things stand
Katherine says:
you know..I might look into it these days..it turned out that I don't get to go home after all cuz the flights are all booked
Katherine says:
But then also because..I DO want to go see you ; either way..we'll see
Phi!ip says:
I would absolutely love to have you
Katherine says:
So how's the "ladyfriend" you were seeing..are you guys together now?
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, we are
Phi!ip says:
She's wonderful
Phi!ip says:
I actually haven't seen her for four days though because she left for Belgium on Friday, came back today, and I've been in town all day studying.
Katherine says:
hey can you send that file through e-mail?
Katherine says:
I can't open it from here somehow
Katherine says:
You probably only have been studying now cuz she's gone
Phi!ip says:
Actually, kinda. Since we've been together nights are spent without noses in books.
Katherine says:
Dude, I Freakin' LOVED it!!!
Phi!ip says:
Which I clearly don't fight against
Katherine says:
The Pic!!
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, its grat
Phi!ip says:
great
Phi!ip says:
Did you see the other one on my sight?
Phi!ip says:
of all of us?
Katherine says:
Yes..it's wonderful..You looked like you are living it up
Phi!ip says:
Ahh, I have so much, almost too much, fun here
Phi!ip says:
I don't have time for class. There are constantly lectures and celebrities to go see, plus the clubs are great
Phi!ip says:
Tonight I met one my favorite authors, Neil Gaimon, who was signing books at Borders.
Phi!ip says:
He drew me a mouse...I feel special
Katherine says:
oh wow..I'd feel special too if my favorite author drew me a mouse
Katherine says:
So has Caleb told you that he saw me with a French guy?
Phi!ip says:
hehe, yeah. And the story was hilarious the way he described it. Why?
Phi!ip says:
How is 8'12 Roman?
Katherine says:
not 8'12
Katherine says:
c'mon
Phi!ip says:
just kidding
Phi!ip says:
that's my exaggeration, not Caleb's
Katherine says:
but to tell you the truth..I may not be with that guy..cuz I met someone really great..someone that I connect on a deeper level
Phi!ip says:
Sounds like they're waiting in line. I hope you find the right guy who will treat you well, and have fun in the exploration.
Katherine says:
thank you..but yeah..I am ready to just settle on one person..I don't like the dating "game" at all
Katherine says:
Do you think you have found THE RIGHT GIRL?
Phi!ip says:
Honestly...no. I can't be sure as she continually surprises me with her compassion and caring, but I don't think so.
Phi!ip says:
I'm dealing with something different here: she is Belgiun, Jewish, extremely intelligent, beautiful, a smoker, and many other traits I'm learning to accept and love
Katherine says:
no..? but you sounded so excited when you talked about her
Phi!ip says:
Yet, I don't want to compromise myself and my values in the process
Phi!ip says:
I'm learning what my values are, for that I can't thank her enough
Katherine says:
you don't have a problem with her being Belgiun..or more over, "Jewish, " do you?
Phi!ip says:
No, not at all. It's just very different
Phi!ip says:
I keep expecting to encounter something I can't deal with or don't want to deal with, and that hasn't happened yet
Phi!ip says:
That's what I mean by her continually surprising me by coming through when I was prepared for her not to.
Phi!ip says:
What's interesting, is I observe Jewish tradition more than she does!
Phi!ip says:
She's a secular Jew
Katherine says:
Does she have to marry Jews only?
Phi!ip says:
She has told me that that is her hope, which brings me to another lesson.
Phi!ip says:
I'm learning how not to project expectations or hopes, but instead to deal with issues as they arise
Katherine says:
hmmm..
Phi!ip says:
She may change her mind, she may not. I may not want to marry Jewish
Phi!ip says:
Yet, before all that, we may get tired of one another.
Phi!ip says:
That's what I'm learning, to take it a day at a time and its remarkably freeing
Katherine says:
So you are not focusing on the future prospect..rather just learning and cherrishing one another?
Phi!ip says:
exactly, mostly. You have to project a little to not be naive, but not overly so
Katherine says:
But what if you both become deeply/emotionally attached..and THEN those questions arise?
Phi!ip says:
Then we will have to decide if we are compromising ourselves in adapting, or allowing love to mold as it would.
Katherine says:
when you finally get to that point..you know it's going to be hard to make the decision (with all that time and emotions being invested)
Katherine says:
I am asking you these questions because those are the questions I have been asking myself
Phi!ip says:
Not necessarily. People change all the time, whether they realize it or not. I can't cut off the idea of being with someone, to a degree, based upon who I think I will be and she will be in the future
Phi!ip says:
I've been asking myself these constantly lately.
Katherine says:
The guy I am seeing right now is 29
Phi!ip says:
Is that Roman?
Katherine says:
and I KNOW that he's not interested me for getting some
Katherine says:
no..Roman is 24..but this guy was in the army when he was younger and then he went travaled around the world (literally)
Phi!ip says:
Is he a student at Central?
Katherine says:
Most of the time we just talk, having discussion, going to concerts, and doing things that we both interested in
Katherine says:
Yes
Phi!ip says:
That's great
Katherine says:
And we haven't had any physical contact at all..It's great
Katherine says:
cuz in a way..we don't need that to be interested in spending time with each other
Phi!ip says:
Indeed, but if you're together in a relationship its definitely a factor.
Katherine says:
that determine or effect the relationship you mean?
Phi!ip says:
Well, its a vital aspect in conjunction with other things like communication, mutual interests, etc.
Katherine says:
yeah I agree
Katherine says:
Are you still in touch with Ewa?
Phi!ip says:
Well, I've sent her some e-mails, but she hasn't responded. I'm thinking my new e-mail is going her trash box. She did send me one a little while ago.
Katherine says:
Ewa and I both agreed upon how much we enjoy reading your e-mails..you have very good writings
Katherine says:
She's just too busy..you know her
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, I'm sure she's crazy busy. Do you know if she saw some of the Barcelona pics online?
Katherine says:
I'll ask her
Katherine says:
But you only put a few pictures up there, right?
Phi!ip says:
I promised her that I would let her see some
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, there used to be more, but my webspace is limited so I took some down when I posted my newer pics
Phi!ip says:
I have a ton I can send her though
Phi!ip says:
So why aren't you going home for Christmas?
Katherine says:
all the seats are booked
Katherine says:
no seeing mommy and daddy this winter I guess
Phi!ip says:
Go on a different airline or something yeah?
Katherine says:
And that was the only reason that kept me from going to Oxford..so now I'm reconsidering the possiblity..if I can still get everything (visa, tickets) on time
Katherine says:
There are only 2,3 airlines..and there's no luck
Phi!ip says:
I'll be here until 23rd, coming back on the 5th of January (after Copenhagen!!)
Phi!ip says:
that's too bad
Katherine says:
When is Caleb coming and leaving?
Phi!ip says:
12th-23rd
Katherine says:
Oh by the way..The philosophy club just posted the pics of the officers up not too long ago..and guess what
Katherine says:
not too surprisingly..Caleb looked crazier than you did
Phi!ip says:
hah! I'll look online and see if I can. How is that stuff going?
Phi!ip says:
Are they very active?
Katherine says:
I think they were watching Fight Club last time and had a disscusion about it
Phi!ip says:
Hmm, Caleb's pic isn't online
Phi!ip says:
Who is Monica Graham?
Katherine says:
Caleb took over my Eastern thoughts and Cultural things..so he's running that, too..I always get updates of that..but never the philosophy club
Katherine says:
Who IS Monica Graham??
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, he said that was going well
Katherine says:
Maybe corey's friend
Phi!ip says:
She's secretary for the Philosophy Club
Phi!ip says:
er, club senator
Katherine says:
yeah..he has like 7 people attending those meetings
Katherine says:
only 1 asian
Phi!ip says:
ironic.
Katherine says:
That doesn't surprise me at all..he's so busy(he's the SA at the lab also) that he can only bring in his own friend to the club
Phi!ip says:
Too bad though...
Katherine says:
I know..but as long as he's happy..
Phi!ip says:
How are you two getting along. You mentioned that you were talking at least
Katherine says:
yeah..we are still good buddies..it's just that now I learn to not tell him everything that's going on in my life (esp. regard to guys)..cuz he freaked out on me and threw me food last time
Katherine says:
It was about a month ago..but I learned my lesson
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, its re-defining relationships is tough. Especially if it wasn't by your will.
Phi!ip says:
How are you doing in general
Katherine says:
a little overwhelmed at first..but I think I have my feet on the gound (more) now.
Katherine says:
how about you? I know you are having fun..but are you not stressed about school?
Phi!ip says:
Wait, you can't get away with that answer. Overwhelmed how?
Katherine says:
well..like I told you in my last e-mail (which was a while ago..I apologize)..I'm taking 18 credits this quarter, holding 2 jobs (16, 17 hrs/week)learning swing dance..and having to deal with guys..not to mention needing the time to catch up with friends
Katherine says:
I'm glad that Caleb is handling things with a mature attitude though
Katherine says:
He seems cool about it, IS he cool about it?
Phi!ip says:
Well...depends what cool means.
Katherine says:
hmmm
Phi!ip says:
If you mean happy, then no. If you mean dealing, yeah. If you mean sometimes bitter as expected, yeah. If you mean does he still care about you, of course.
Katherine says:
good answer..you answered it from many angles
Katherine says:
which really is how life is and how people are
Phi!ip says:
Indeed, we are far more complex than we would often like to think.
Katherine says:
I agree wholeheartly
Phi!ip says:
I miss talking face to face because you get really excited when you talk.
Katherine says:
I do..LOL
Katherine says:
Romain said that I have very expressive looks when I talk
Phi!ip says:
You do
Katherine says:
dumb founded
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, I seem to have that more and more 8)
Katherine says:
haha
Phi!ip says:
Where are you by the way?
Katherine says:
At the lab in the library
Katherine says:
I have a brand new lap top now..I was expecting to run into you online SOMEDAY
Phi!ip says:
Well, I am normally on for about half an hour each day, but you're sleeping quietyly in your Care Bear pajamas at that time
Katherine says:
How did you know???!! (about the Care Bear Pajamas)
Phi!ip says:
Rumor
Phi!ip says:
Alas, I must leave you to your library and me to mine.
Phi!ip says:
I still have a report to write
Katherine says:
A girl that looks just like Jess just walked in..how is she doing? do you know
Phi!ip says:
Freezing in Poland! But loving every minute of it.
Phi!ip says:
Polish is coming along fast for her
Katherine says:
So she make sure to keep you posted then
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, she's much better than I am. Two letters thus far.
Katherine says:
I missed that girl..she always gives me a big hug with a smile when she sees me
Phi!ip says:
Yeah, she's good that way.
Katherine says:
Alright..I'll let you return to your paper now
Katherine says:
BUT
Phi!ip says:
That's a big butt
Katherine says:
only if you remain to be a good friend and Keep in Touch!
Katherine says:
Phi!ip says:
Claro Que Si Amiga. Y tu tambien. Hasta luego.
Katherine says:
I will take THAT as No problem, absolutely, you have my words
Katherine says:
si?
Phi!ip says:
you forgot Princess
Katherine says:
haha
Phi!ip says:
boker ereb
Katherine says:
alright..e-mail me sometimes and I'd do the same
Katherine says:
HAVE A GREAT QUARTER (or semester), Phil!!
Phi!ip says:
You also! Get stressed, but not over guys. We're not worth it.
Katherine says:
awww...don't worry..we women are like tea bags
Katherine says:
you'd only know how strong we are when we're being put in hot water
Phi!ip says:
I like that...
Phi!ip says:
Night
Phi!ip says:
I mean, good day
