Day 1 Trucking School. Drug testing

It’s Day 1 of Trucking school! I’m excited! Who doesn’t love a new adventure? The promise of what this can bring into my life! My love life? Well! We shall have to see what’ll come of that! One of the reasons  I’m going on the road is to make sure that I do live my life and don’t stick around for what I consider a relationship, in case the other party doesn’t see it that way. Perhaps, the trucking adventure will  also be a wake up call for my person, and or for our relationship.

Becoming a Long Haul Trucker

A lot to think about regarding this new
career in trucking! Should I move into the hotel? My apartment being an hour's drive from the school and the hotel, only ten minutes, was somewhat of a deciding factor. Sharing a room, period, let alone with a stranger, didn’t seem that exciting. Don’t get me wrong,

Trucking and Dating - my story

 Derrick, my new beau and I are good. I’ve been introduced to his brother. I spend a week at my place in LA, hustling and weekends with Derrick, chilling. This is what usually happens at his place...

How I Got into Trucking

 When I didn’t hear back from The 99 Cents Store’s manager, I called and called and called. Eventually, they let me speak to him. I didn’t think anything wrong of following up after a great meeting between he and I. He was so rude to me! I was so caught of guard? You know when you someone makes a certain kind of impression with you, you approach them next time under that impression and they completely surprise you? In the worst possible way? I had to meditate that conversation out of my memory, it was so hurtful. It left me with a lump in my throat and a little glossy eyed.

Who the fuck is Babe?

 Ohio dude  texts me as I’m at work. I was also on cloud nine since my successful date with our new friend, Derrick. It was the last person I expected to hear from after six months of no contact. I’d even been on other dates AND non dates  Ohio, aka Martin had a nickname for me. Eye roll please! He used that nickname and In the text,  asked how I had been. I might have thrown up in my mouth...

When We Kiss Ooh, Fire!

The Jury is back! Clearly, Mr Film came across as a decent guy to you guys than he did to me! My bad! I don't claim to know everything, especially when it comes to relationships. That's one field I could definitely use some education in. All kind of relationships: Friendships  included.

Now, to continue with the other guy, the 'normal' one. We settled on Derrick as his name, right? I think so! We had not spoken on the phone yet  but because we were about to meet up,  I asked to Facetime. Rick  (short for Derrick) luckily, had an iPhone too, so we got on Facetime before our meeting. He looked better on video. I literally blurted out, 'you're so pretty!' Haha! To which, he replied,

I Can't Tell If You Like Me?

After successfully pulling off two dates with a guy and not kissing him on either, well, one was a non date. Read about that here; I was back on the saddle, as if I never fell off! One night, I was booked on a show in Hollywood. As per usual, no cellphones allowed. I always just left my phone in the car when going to a TV show, unless specifically stated to bring cellphones. This one was in the evening. I drove opposite direction of traffic during rush hour, but my main concern was parking, as people would've been back home from work. Central Hollywood is unpredictable, in that, some people live there and some people only work there. You can't really tell what the best time to be there will be for you to find parking. I can talk about parking in Los Angeles for blogs and blogs, but let's reel it back in! I walked about a half a mile to the studio from where I had parked my car. It turned out to be a comedy show, Loni Love from The Real was there. I met a nice guy in the line who was reading a book. We ended up chatting in that long ass wait. He, another girl and myself. The other girl had some great bad date stories! She was catfished by a super short guy (not that there's anything wrong with being short but hers had lied about his height) and the guy made her pay for the meal! Forgot his wallet or something classic like that! She was stunning, this woman. I hope she's since found what she was looking for and is happy. After the show, this was in the wee hours of the morning as this was a pilot taping, pilots (first episodes) take forever to tape as the team is still figuring things out. I walked back to my car... well, kinda, I couldn't find my car!

Kissing on a Non-Date

After my week with my online boyfriend, Martin: I'm back in the dating scene for the second again in a few months. Someone wanted to meet me. I thought it best to arrange to meet not to far from my place. Turned out he didn't live that far from me. That was an interesting twist! Definitely a better deal than Mr  Ohio over there. We had one Facetime call, because Catfish are real! He looked like his photos... even better actually! He works in the entertainment business and had worked on some South African focused films before. When he found out I was South African, he was really excited. He wanted to do coffee. I don't drink coffee nor am I a big fan of coffee dates. When  I mentioned this to him, he told me

He Sucked My Toes!

Why am I bringing up that my internet boyfriend, Martin had cameras in his house, you ask! Well! Because as he prepped a yoga class on the Wii Nintendo to keep me occupied while he was out on a date with another woman with his son; I noticed that the pad that I was standing on was placed right in line of sight of a camera. Coincidence?

My Week With Internet Boyfriend

It's my first time in Ohio  and my very first time meeting this guy in person. Something about this experience reminds me of when I moved in with a guy I had never met in person in the middle of the night. Click here for that story if you don't know about Perry.
I'm holding onto my suitcase and searching for Martin with my eyes. Searching and searching! Next thing I know

You Cheating Son of a Gun!

So, it's been weeks, my new online person, Martin and I are talking daily. We shared locations and all that good technological stuff. One day, he tells me he's going to watch a movie at a friend's. I have a weird feeling about this. We're on facetime, so you can see someone's body language and it was not agreeing with that of someone telling the truth. He was dressed nicely, and had just gotten a haircut, that afternoon, after work. I was like, mh! Ok!
