bewitching. : (18 September 2014 - 03:41 PM) Just shown him how to get on to his college email. So I was sat in his room. It doesn't help I'm fighting the urge of him being the guy that I like.
Modthryth : (18 September 2014 - 03:25 PM) Good for him! :)
bewitching. : (18 September 2014 - 03:23 PM) Nope because I've done all of mine. He was ill today so that is why I'm proud of him you know because even though he is feeling rough he is pulling through.
Modthryth : (18 September 2014 - 03:22 PM) But is he doing yours? :P
bewitching. : (18 September 2014 - 03:03 PM) So proud of my housemate! He is finally doing some homework!
