Okay. Breathe in. Breathe out. You're an 18 year old girl. You know what you want. You know what you feel. So what's stopping you?

The intimidation of the social classes.

But they're still people. What's so wrong about it?

The fact that their lifestyle is..more luxurious than mine.


It scares me. What if I'm just not classy enough? :(

But if he loves you, why should that be a problem?

He might miss it if he's with me..and I don't want to become someone I'm not.

So what other choice do you have?

I don't know.. I don't plan on letting him go anytime soon...

You love him.


So, what's still stopping you?

There shouldn't be.. I'm just insecure..

Aren't we all.

Happy Reminders

Seems like this is going to be a hell of a month for me eh? So.. I've decided to post up these reminders for myself and for anybody who feels down.

How to make yourself feel better:

1. Eat a meal. Stuffing your mouth is easier to do and it prevents mean words from flowing out of it.
2. Cry it out. The bad feelings will only seem to have more and more ingredients added until they flow in the form of a salty solution that pours from the eyes and make us act like fountains.
3. Share with a friend. You don't really just have to talk about the problem, cuz the thing is, they'll change the topic even if you want to keep pouring your heart out. Not only will this make your friendship even stronger, it will give you someone who will: laugh at you for being stupid, cry with you because you're hurt, get mad at you because you're being weak/get mad at you because you've got too much pride or ALL of the above.
4. Take a nap. Fall asleep anywhere and everywhere. This will keep you distracted as other people's looks will now be the focus of your shame.
5. Learn to have a laugh at what's happening. Keeping a frown on your face will not only worry the friends who are trying to make you laugh, but it will also make you look like a bulldog. An exact replica, with the puffy eyes, wet nose, sagging eye-bags and loooooong facial expression.
6. Surround yourself with people who love you. These are the people you can depend on who will do everything in their power to make you feel like the idiot that you are for wasting your tears and wasted your time being sad. These are the people who will tell you things will work out just fine when the time comes, it's just that neither of you can tell when that'll happen.
7. Have a talk with God. He knows what's happening, He knows it's tough because you feel like the world is on your shoulders, but He will always love, always listen and always care.

*Note from the author: These will only work if you want to feel better, not when you want to keep drowning yourself in your misery.

I thought it was okay, so I took the risk. Who knew it meant feeling like this? Feeling like you're invisible and being looked at like you're the worst person alive. Not even talking things out because you don't even know what to say or the things you might say could bring out even more hate. Yes, that's the feeling that's being directed towards me, HATE. Feeling like crying most of the time I'm at home. Oh the tears I will spend for days if this goes on...

I didn't lose anybody or anything physically, but why does it feel like I don't even have a place where I'm supposed to call home? Why do I feel like I don't deserve the things I got and that maybe I should give up? Is this even fair on my part, when I already feel low enough as it is? When it seems like I just lost someone who was on my side for so long, only to find that selfish ambition on my part would be the cause of the ruin of our relationship? I didn't think that such a bond would have been torn apart so easily when the words of the heart were finally out in the open. Whatever happened to honesty? What's more is whatever happened to love? :(

What am I going to do?

My HS girls

To the girls who have put up with me through my worst, and best. The girls who always want to be in my business and who can make me cry and laugh at the same time.

I love you not because we’ve been through more than a little craziness in the past years.

I love you not because you point out when I act like a goof but still choose to stick with me.

I love you not because you see me as the person I still am even when I’m a mess and in tears.

I love you not because you tolerate and even ride along when it seems I could be a little crazy.

It’s not that easy to explain,

Why it’s always easier with you around.

It's just that even

The simplest words that come from your mouth

Could make my day a lot better.


I’ll hope you’ll still let me stay nearby, to be that shoulder you can lean on.

I’ll hope we won’t lose touch with each other after everything that we’ve been through.

I’ll hope you understand that I don’t ever want to lose your friendship and the comfort you give

But because I really do love you,

I’ll let you go when you want me to; just don’t think I won’t hope you'll come back or ever miss you.

Long Walk To Forever by Kurt Vonnegut

One of the sweetest and shortest stories I have fallen in love with :">

They had grown up next door to each other, on the fringe of a city, near fields and woods and orchards, within  sight  of  a lovely bell tower that belonged to a school for the blind.

       Now they were twenty, had not seen each other for nearly a year. There had always been playful, comfortable warmth between them, but never any talk of love.

     His name was Newt. Her name was Catharine.

In the early afternoon, Newt knocked on Catharine's front door.
     Catharine came to the door.

She was carrying a fat, glossy magazine she had been reading.
The magazine was devoted entirely to brides. "Newt!" she said.
She was surprised to see him.
 "Could you come for a walk?" he said. He was a shy person, even with Catharine.

He covered his shyness by speaking absently as though what really concerned him were far away--as though he were a secret agent pausing briefly on a mission between beautiful, distant, and sinister points. This manner of speaking had always been Newt's style, even in matters that concerned him desperately.

     "A walk?" said Catharine.
     "One foot in front of the other," said Newt, "through leaves, over bridges---"
     "I had no idea you were in town," she said.
     "Just this minute got in," he said.
     "Still in the Army, I see," she said.
     "Seven months more to go," he said. He was a private first class in the Artillery. His uniform was rumpled. His shoes were dusty. He needed a shave. He held out his hand for the magazine.

"Let's see the pretty book," he said.
     She gave it to him. "I'm getting married, Newt," she said.
     "I know," he said. "Let's go for a walk."
     "I'm awfully busy, Newt," she said. "The wedding is only a week away."
     "If we go for a walk," he said, "it will make you rosy. It will make you a rosy bride." He turned the pages of the magazine. "A rosy bride like her--like her--like her," he said, showing her rosy brides.

     Catharine turned rosy, thinking about rosy brides.

     "That will be my present to Henry Stewart Chasens," said Newt. "By taking you for a walk, I'll be giving him a rosy bride."
     "You know his name?" she said.
     "Mother wrote," he said. "From Pittsburgh?"
     "Yes," she said. "You'd like him."
     "Maybe," he said.
     "Can--can you come to the wedding, Newt?" she said.
     "That I doubt," he said.
     "Your furlough isn't for long enough?" she said.

     "Furlough?" said Newt. He was studying a two page ad for flat silver. "I'm not on furlough," he said.
     "Oh?" she said.
     "I'm what they call A.W.O.L.," said Newt.
     "Oh, Newt! You're not!" she said.
     "Sure I am," he said, still looking at the magazine.
     "Why, Newt?" she said.

     "I had to find out what your silver pattern is," he said. He read names of silver patterns from the magazine. “Albemarle? Heather?" he said. "Legend? Rambler Rose?" He looked up, smiled. "I plan to give you and your husband a spoon," he said.
     "Newt, Newt--tell me really," she said.
     "I want to go for a walk," he said.
     She wrung her hands in sisterly anguish. "Oh, Newt--you're fooling me about being A.W.O.L.," she said.

     Newt imitated a police siren softly, and raised his eyebrows.

     "Where--where from?"
     "Fort Bragg," he said.
     "North Carolina?" she said.
     "That's right," he said. "Near Fayetteville--where Scarlet O'Hara went to school."
     "How did you get here, Newt?" she said.
     He raised his thumb, jerked it in a hitchhike gesture. "Two days," he said.

     "Does your mother know?" she said.
     "I didn't come to see my mother," he told her.
     "Who did you come to see?" she said.
     "You," he said.
     "Why me?" she said.

     "Because I love you," he said. "Now can we take a walk?" he said. "One foot in front of the other--through leaves, over bridges--"

     They were taking the walk now, were in a woods with a brown-leaf floor.
     Catharine was angry and rattled, close to tears. "Newt," she said, "this is absolutely crazy."
     "How so?" said Newt.
     "What a crazy time to tell me you love me," she said. "You never talked that way before."

She stopped walking.

     "Let's keep walking," he said.
     "No," she said. "So far, no farther. I shouldn't have come out with you at all," she said.
     "You did," he said.
     "To get you out of the house," she said. "If somebody walked in and heard you talking to me
that way, a week before the wedding--"

     "What would they think?" he said.
     "They'd think you were crazy," she said.
     "Why?" he said.

     Catharine took a deep breath, made a speech. "Let me say that I'm deeply honored by this
crazy thing you've done," she said. "I can't believe you're really A.W.O.L., but maybe you are. I
can't believe you really love me, but maybe you do. But--"
     "I do," said Newt.

     "Well, I'm deeply honored," said Catharine, "and I'm very fond of you as a friend, Newt, extremely fond--but it's just too late." She took a step away from him. "You've never even kissed me," she said, and she protected herself with her hands. "I don't mean you should do it now. I just mean that this is all so unexpected. I haven't got the remotest idea of how to respond."

     "Just walk some more," he said. "Have a nice time."
     They started walking again.
     "How did you expect me to react?" she said.
     "How would I know what to expect?" he said. "I've never done anything like this before."
     “Did you think I would throw myself into your arms?" she said.
     "Maybe," he said.
     "I'm sorry to disappoint you," she said.
     "I'm not disappointed," he said. "I wasn't counting on it. This is very nice, just walking."

     Catharine stopped again. "You know what happens next?" she said.
     "Nope," he said.
     "We shake hands," she said. "We shake hands and part friends," she said. "That's what happens next."
     Newt nodded. "All right," he said. "Remember me from time to time. Remember how much
I loved you."

     Involuntarily, Catharine burst into tears. She turned her back to Newt, looked into the infinite colonnade of the woods.
     "What does that mean?" said Newt.
     "Rage!" said Catharine. She clenched her hands. "You have no right--"
     "I had to find out," he said.

     "If I'd loved you," she said, "I would have let you know before now."
     "You would?" he said.
     "Yes," she said. She faced him, looked up at him, her face quite red. "You would have known," she said.
     "How?" he said.
     "You would have seen it," she said. "Women aren't very clever at hiding it."

     Newt looked closely at Catharine's face now. To her consternation, she realized that what she had said was true, that a woman couldn't hide love.

     Newt was seeing love now.
     And he did what he had to do. He kissed her.

     "You're hell to get along with!" she said when Newt let her go.
     "I am?" said Newt.
     "You shouldn't have done that," she said.
     "You didn't like it?" he said.
     "What did you expect," she said--"wild, abandoned passion?"

     "I keep telling you," he said," I never know what's going to happen next."
     "We say good-bye," she said.
     He frowned slightly. "All right," he said.
     She made another speech. "I'm not sorry we kissed," she said. "That was sweet. We should have kissed, we've been so close. I'll always remember you, Newt, and good luck."

     "You too," he said.
     "Thirty days," he said.
     "What?" she said.
     "Thirty days in the stockade," he said--"that's what one kiss will cost me."
     "I--I'm sorry," she said, "but I didn't ask you to go A.W.O.L."
     "I know," he said.
     "You certainly don't deserve any hero's reward for doing something as foolish as that," she said.

     "Must be nice to be a hero," said Newt. "Is Henry Stewart Chasens a hero?"
     "He might be, if he got the chance," said Catharine. She noted uneasily that they had begun to walk again. The farewell had been forgotten.

     "You really love him?" he said.
     "Certainly I love him!" she said hotly. "I wouldn't marry him if I didn't love him!"
     "What's good about him?" said Newt.
     "Honestly!" she cried, stopping again. "Do you have any idea how offensive you're being?
Many, many, many things are good about Henry! Yes," she said, "and many, many, many things are probably bad, too. But that isn't any of your business. I love Henry, and I don't have to argue his merits with you!"
     "Sorry," said Newt.
     "Honestly!" said Catharine.
     Newt kissed her again. He kissed her again because she wanted him to.

     They were now in a large orchard.
     "How did we get so far from home, Newt?" said Catharine.
     "One foot in front of the other--through leaves, over bridges," said Newt.
     "They add up--the steps," she said.

     Bells rang in the tower of the school for the blind nearby.
     "School for the blind," said Newt.
     "School for the blind," said Catharine. She shook her head in drowsy wonder. "I've got to go back now," she said.
     "Say good-by," said Newt.
     "Every time I do," said Catharine, "I seem to get kissed."

     Newt sat down on the close-cropped grass under an apple tree. "Sit down," he said.
     "No," she said.
     "I won't touch you," he said.
     "I don't believe you," she said.
     She sat down under another tree, twenty feet away from him. She closed her eyes.
     "Dream of Henry Stewart Chasens," he said.
     "What?" she said.
     "Dream of your wonderful husband-to-be," he said.
     "All right, I will," she said. She closed her eyes tighter, caught glimpses of her husband-to-be.
     Newt yawned.

     The bees were humming in the trees, and Catharine almost fell asleep. When she opened her eyes she saw that Newt really was asleep.
     He began to snore softly.
     Catharine let him sleep for an hour, and while he slept she adored him with all her heart.
     The shadows of the apple trees grew to the east. The bells in the tower of the school for the blind rang again.

     "*chick-a-dee-dee-dee*," went a chickadee.
     Somewhere far away an automobile started nagged and failed, nagged and failed, fell still.
     Catharine came out from under her tree, knelt by Newt.
     "Newt?" she said.
     "Hm?" he said. He opened his eyes.
     "Late," she said.
     "Hello, Catharine," he said.
     "Hello, Newt," she said.
     "I love you," he said.
     "I know," she said.
     "Too late," he said.
     "Too late," she said.
     He stood, stretched groaningly. "A very nice walk," he said.
     "I thought so," she said.

     "Part company here?" he said.
     "Where will you go?" she said.
     "Hitch into town, turn myself in," he said.
     "Good luck," she said.

     "You too," he said. "Marry me, Catharine?"
     "No," she said.

     He smiled, stared at her hard for a moment, then walked away quickly.

     Catharine watched him grow smaller in the long perspective of shadows and trees, knew that if he stopped and turned now, if he called to her, she would run to him. She would have no choice.

     Newt did stop. He did turn. He did call. "Catharine," he called.
     She ran to him, put her arms around him, could not speak.
