@Kevin: Aww, sorry you’re getting sick. I’m not feeling too well myself, but that’s probably because I’m sitting in the newsroom (read: icebox) with no shoes on. I’m practically asking for it I suppose.
@Renee: At least I’m a friendly ghost? Could have been worse.
how are you?
happy mother’s day.
It’s been a while since I’ve been on here…and I kind of like that, I like the lack of dramatics about it too. I remember people on here used to get all sorts of rude when someone would say, “I’m leaving Tumblr!” and everybody is like, WELL THEN LEAVE ALREADY.
I treat Tumblr like any other thing in life: avoid confrontation and just dip out.
But that’s another issue for another day that I might address on here one day since this is my only relatively private place?
My friend sent me a message on Skype yesterday saying she was pregnant.
She was lying…but that’s not the point of this.
So many of my friends are moving onto the next stage of their lives. Literally, there are 5 different wedding albums on Facebook…this week alone. At least 6 engagements. And of my married friends, at least 3 baby gender announcements.
I really honestly cannot take it after being single for over a year which means nothing to some people, but a lot to me especially when my mother—God bless her soul—jokes about putting my email on an online dating site:
Mom: “Ashley it’s JUST lunch.”
Me: “Mom, please, I beg of you…don’t.”
I’m 22. Not quite at the age where my single-ness defines me. I’m more at an age where my fresh-out-of-college-ness defines me. My single status won’t start to “define” me until I’m in my late 20s, early 30s when I’m the single one among all my married friends.
I’ll deal with it then.
Also, 3 months until my birthday.
"Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life."
