    A Charm Bracelet From Atlanta

    I got a box in the mail a few months ago from a college roomate. We weren't really close until after we'd gotten other roomates. But she's one of my closest friends now. We live hours apart, but talk on the phone at least twice a week. After leaving college, we have never...

    Vivid Memory

    I remember this so clearly... Around my 13th or 14th birthday, my mom gave me a wrapped present and told me to go ahead and open it.  I did, and it was a tiny, red cube.  It was a little Sony cassette deck and radio.  This was just before the boombox onslought...

    Yay!

    I love when someone gives me a gift for no reason. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it's great. My friend has taken to buying me vinyl albums when she goes to half price books. It's nice to get a phone call saying that she has an album for me. I also love giving...

    I have to admit, I'm one of the most stubborn

    people I know. Even when I need help, I will refuse and work hard to get what I need or want. I have been like that for my whole life. Just recently I had been trying to find a place to live and during the move, my old *** laptop broke. Not once had i ever dropped it before...

    I Like It But My Boyfriend

    Well I like random gifts even if it's something like a chocolate bar or a friend paying for lunch. It makes me feel good about myself. Now that I have a job I should be able to buy others random gifts. My boyfriend doesn't like getting gifts. If I want to do something nice for...

    They're So Much Better!

    I prefer unexpected gifts to expected gifts. If it's your birthday, or christmas or something like that, you mostly get gifts because people feel like they have to. But with unexpected gifts you can be sure that it's just a nice random gift, there might be some exceptions, but...

    I like to give gifts at odd times during the year, when I see something that reminds me of someone.  I recently bought a picture on deviant art that reminded me of a friend and sent it.  Hopefully she will enjoy the picture of one apple stabbing the other one in the eye...

    Just realized i received huge unexpected gifts

    this year. And to think I was bitching a lot. I thank God for listening to my prayers. But of course im still praying for that one thing I've been praying most of the time. Im just hoping for Him to listen to it and probably bless me.
