    Just got back from traveling

    for funeral stuff for my grandfather. It was a beautiful service. I think my grandfather would have been quite proud as to the way we celebrated his life. I'm just glad it's all over and that he's finally at peace. It's been a long week...

    Once Again

    Once again I am standing at the edge of a cliff that just seemed to appear out of nowhere. I don't get it and I am allowing myself to have a momentary pity party (which has been atypical for a while). I am down for keeping a positive attitude. I am down for learning from my...

    Seriously? How could you not take my love

    seriously? No one ever does, and it disgusts me so much. I feel like no one loves me, and I'm not even meant to find love. And that is okay, I just don't like to be mislead and dragged along while someone is trying to debate their feelings for me. I refuse to. I won't have it...
