    I'm the Number One Fan of the Man From Tennesee

    He and I were best friends, we hadn't met in person but shared everything.  We would talk for hours on the phone.  I would buy phone cards just to talk to him. (this was before I had a cell) If I couldn't get a phone card then he would find a way to call me, I'd say we...

    I've never been in love before

    as I have said, I thought I was once, I was wrong. But there has always been that one woman who I consider as 'the one who got away', I hate that I let her go. It wasn't love I don't think, I wouldn't know as I don't have much to compare it too, but it was something special.

    .. It all started in sixth grade. There we were in science class, a science project was due of making a Q&A board with some electrical wires blah blah... I did not bring nearly half the materials required to do the project. It was by groups but given my popularity back then, i...

    My First Love...

    My "One Who Got Away" would be my first love. I met him when I was 19 and he broke up with me not long after I turned 21. We were together for nearly 2 years and I treated him like ****. I was young, troubled and didn't know how to appreciate a wonderful guy. I was a moody and...

    Imagine Jack Sparrow

    for moment. Yes, the fictional pirate! He's just a little bit bad, but mostly good, with a wicked sense of humor. He's drop dead sexy, incredibly witty, and has an accent that melts otherwise rational American women right in their tracks. Got that image in your head? Ok, now...
