    I Used To Take Everything For Granted.

    I didn't realise how different it would feel to be entirely in control of my own day. I know that sounds really dumb, but when you have your parents to wake you up in the morning and to cook meals for you and wash your clothes and all that stuff, you don't realise how much work...

    He's Just Not That Into You...errrr...me

    If you read my last stuff (probably not), then you already know that I'm mooning over Michael.  Michael, Michael, Michael...I called him about a week ago and I told him that I think of him all the time.  He said that he thinks of me all the time, too, and immediately...

    Reality Check...continued...

    So, I sent Michael an email professing my love for him, and my desire for us to be together.  I know -- that's against the rules.  I'm just sick of this whole dance we've been dancing forever.  Here it is, cut down to bare bones:  I love him, but if I'm not a...

    Continued...Day Two, Revised!

    So, I did just hear from Michael!  He wants me, too, but he's scared.  I'm scared, too, but I'm more scared to spend the rest of my life missing him.  He is who I want for the rest of my life. It has been so many years since I've been able to say that.

    I was too busy looking out

    for the wellbeing of others, that I overlooked the possibility of getting hurt myself. I deeply dislike the feeling of it, but am thankful for the learning experience. This lesson won't be forgotten

    Reality Check 10/20/09

    I have come to realize that I am a beautiful human being and I deserve to be loved, wanted, appreciated, desired and listened to.  I won't ever get these things by demanding them.  But I must not sit around and wait for someone to change either.  Life is short...

    Continued...day Two

    It's Day Two, and still no response from Michael.  I would have thought that our friendship, at least, would have elicted some response from him.  I don't think that I would have let a friend hang on for this long.  Maybe our friendship is not what I thought it was...

    Wow.  It's Day One.  No response, yet, from Michael.  I know he's read my email because he changed his status (gmail) twice after I sent it.  So - I guess it's safe to say that he didn't have a strong reaction either way.  Not, "OMG, I feel the same...

    I Hate The Internet

    Subtitle:  So freaking tired of feeling this way I really hate checking my email, hoping to hear from Michael, and seeing that he has changed his mood/status...again..., but not written back to me yet. The world has gotten TOO FREAKING SMALL! No, I am not a...
