    I Lent Money To A Lover

     It was a huuuuuge mistake to lend money to a lover who was also a colleague of mine. I wanted so bad to get tickets to a once-in-a-lifetime concert that I did everything imaginable to make sure I've tried my best. I tried to get them through many channels and the result...

    I love this girl and we were chilling.

    I told her talk on a chat program for fun and jokes. We were having fun and this guy answer. The girl I like talked for a while and he asked for her number and she gived it. I feel like a loser allowing her to do that. I gived the girl with my own hands.

    When Am I Not

    Constantly make mistakes. Big ones, little ones. All kinds of ones. Some I learn from, some I don't. Some I just keep on making. Well at least I am beginning to recognize some of them.

    I made a mistake and I'm very sorry.

    I shouldn't have ignored it or run away from that mistake I made. I have not been a good friend to you and I apologize for being a jerk. You trusted me and I've broken that trust. I hope someday that you'll forgive and we could start all over again..

    I had unprotected sex.

    It was my fault and his. I could've stopped him before. He could have asked. Regardless of whose fault it was: I'm sorry. I had to buy Plan B. I hope it works. I'm worried it won't because I'm right at the BMI level of less effective/ineffective.

    My Mistake

    I was told I made a mistake for telling someone what my plans were at the time.  This person did what I had to do a long time ago.  They took my idea and reversed it.  The person that told me I have made a mistake is quite right, I cannot disagree.
