    Still Hurts Like Hell..what A Silly Girl I Am

    The first month of the big B is approaching so here's the progress so far of how I spent it... Good Bits 1. Walked out on my job which was just driving me to be an insecure bat (hence affecting the 'put together' image my ex adored me for) 2. Went totally mental in any club...

    Tonight Is the End.

    The last straw has been had. I need what she can't give. Tonight will be the night I tell her good-bye. Sounds easier than I know it'll be. We've been together almost 6 very trying months. Another hopeful relationship  bites the dust....It will probably take awhile to...

    Not The Easiest Thing I've Ever Done.

    We were together for 9 months and he was my first serious relationship. We just broke up a couple of days ago, and it was partly my own fault. We aren't speaking right now which I guess makes it easier on both of us in some ways. I do miss him quite a bit, but I also feel that...

    Walking Away...Finally

    This is not the writing of a heartbroken girl who got drunk at 4 am and in a case of bad judgement wrote to the one person she should not be writing to. I wish I could think of you as a decent/good human being. Trust me, I really want to believe that - after all who wants to...
