Resignation

Nine years. I've been a part of GA for just shy of a decade. I've seen it grow from only a few forums and some scattered author websites to a community of thousands of people across the world with millions of visitors every month. I was member 937 to join the site. GA is now approaching the 25,000th member. I joined this site on a random Wednesday and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. The people I've met through this site have guided me and made me who I am today and I co

Leukemia - Light the Night Walk

It's a rare occasion that I'll blog about anything serious (or at all really), so I'll keep this short.   It's rare that you go through life and meet someone that doesn't have some sort of heartbreak in their past. I'm not talking about relationships either, but more of the kind that causes you to stop and wonder how life can be so cruel sometimes. From cancer, to domestic violence, to losing a loved one in an unfortunate accident, everyone has had something like this happen to them in their

The Advice We Give/Get

I find it frustrating that every time I talk to people, they all give me the same, yet different advice. Let's look at love and relationships.   Hypothetical situation: You're in love with someone, but they're in love with someone else. If you ask someone for advice, you'll get one of two things:   1) Fight for what you believe in. If you love this person, let them know it. Show them that you care for them. Profess your love for them and maybe they'll feel the same way. Even if they don't,

Seven Years Ago...

Wow. So it's been a while since I've written a blog. Time seems to be flying by faster and faster lately. It feels like it was just yesterday when I was lurking around GA for the first time trying to decide if I should join. Turns out that was 7 years ago. I've been here for seven freaking years. I basically grew up on this website. The people I've met through here have changed my life so drastically that I couldn't imagine what I would be like today had I not joined.   I know a lot of the 'r

Update

Hey everyone! It’s been far too long since I’ve been around GA but even longer since I posted a blog but I promise to keep this short. For the past few months I’ve taken a step back from the site in order to get my personal life in order. I’ve been through some rough spots lately and I’m still not sure where exactly my life is headed right now. I’ve been in and out of physical therapy for about 3 months now but I’ll most likely have to go back in for more surgery. Nothing serious, just a minor s

Interested?

So I realize it's been months since I last blogged and a lot of new people on here are probably seeing this wondering who the hell I am, but oh well. Usually I write a lot on these when I did my 'monthly updates' but since it's been a while I'll try and keep it to short(er) bullet points   - My first term is finally over. My professors seemed to think most of the essays that I half-assed at 3 in the morning were 'phenomenal' compared to the rest of the class... I just take that as me going to

Another 'Bonding' Experience

Short blog this time.   So my sister is in jail. Apparently she had a DWI and also got a ticket for hitting an object on the highway and failing to stop. Which probably means she hit a cone or something and the cop pulled her over and found that she was drunk.   She called me at 8 this morning asking me to come bail her out and not tell my parents. Well that's hard to do when I don't get paid until Friday and don't have the money. So my brother and I called just about everyone we could tryin

Update on the last one

So I took my own advice from last blog and that a few others said to do, and I just walked away. I didn't say anything to him because I knew I would end up caving and just end up miserable again. So I let it all go and ignored the calls.   Well, I went up to Coppell tonight to hang out with an old friend I haven't seen in years, and while I was there my phone wouldn't connect to the network, or it was down or something. Either way I couldn't receive calls or texts until I was on my way home. I

I'm a Vegetarian and I ain't f**king scared of him!

Time for another blog! Woo!   Nothing really too important to say except to tell those that haven’t already heard, that I’m a vegetarian for the summer. Yeah, weird right? I’m going to start out with the summer and see if I can do it, and if it’s not that big of a pain in the ass, I’ll see how long I can keep it up until I fall off the bandwagon and devour a cow.   This is day 11 without meat for me. Not really a milestone by any means, but I haven’t had much trouble to be honest. I’m not cr

Oh yeah...

I forgot to add in my last blog that I quite possibly sort-of kinda maybe have a boyfriend.   Yeah.   That's it.

Still waiting...

So I'm sitting in the hotel room waiting for Michelle to wake her ass up. I told her I'd let her sleep in today but it's already almost 10. I've been up since 8 and walked around the city for an hour and a half. I came back expecting her to be awake and ready to go do stuff, but she's snoring like a chainsaw on concrete. My one vacation and she's sleeping it away! Of course, I could just say f**k it and wake her ass up, but then I have to deal with her moody shit all morning until I feed her. Sh

San Francisco and Random Happiness

So I’m in a random good mood and decided to blog about it. Less bitching this time around, I promise! Well… I think so anyways.   California is in 2 weeks! 13 days and 6 hours until my flight leaves to be exact I honestly can’t wait that long. I want to go now and these last 2 weeks are going to drag by so slow. Every time I hear certain songs on the radio, it reminds me of it and I can’t get it out of my mind for a while. It’s irritating! Once I step on that plane though, all will be well in

I slept with a woman last night...

Two blog entries in the same month? No way! But this one is short.   Ever have one of those nights where you're laying in bed at 1:30 watching CSI and it's a creepy part when someone starts tapping on your window? So you pause the show thinking it was just your mind, but the tapping happens again. Then you can't turn the light on so you throw clothes on and open the door to pitch black and all you see is someone standing there crying. No? Well it happened to me...   Turns out it was my gener

It's a long one...

Alright so I haven’t blogged since November and I’ve really been meaning to, I just haven’t found the time. I’m going to end up rambling on and on here so feel free to skip it all   I’ll start with all the things that have been causing me to be overly stressed lately. Which in all honesty is a lot of crap and I’m probably on the verge of having an anxiety attack, but f**k it. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger I guess.   School has been alright, nothing major, but we’re nearing

"And the reason is you...."

Alright so because I didn’t explain it before and I’m sick of people bugging me about it, I figure I’ll post what happened here so you can all get your fill and stop asking me. Part of me didn’t want to post something like this because it had the potential to be somewhat negative and I was trying to stay positive about the whole situation. Well f**K that. I’m pissed so here goes nothing.   I’ll start by posting the letter I wrote to him making it official that we broke up. This isn’t word for

For those of you that haven't heard yet, I'm single again.   Joe

Been A While...

Yeah so I last posted in May, and it's now September. Usually I go a month without blogging, but it's been 4 now so I figured I'd give it a whirl. Don't know how long it'll be this time, but I know a lot has happened recently and some of you thought I fell off the face of the Earth...   So I just got off work. I quit my last job on Sunday because they were morons and would never give me hours because the month was slow there. No matter what anyone tells you, unless you're working at a higher-e

Complete HELL

I posted this last night but it wasn't working so I'm posting it now   I can tell you from the start that this entire blog is going to be nothing but bitching. So if you really don't want to hear me complain and sound like a little bitch, then leave. Other than that, by all means, please do enjoy   So let's start with CJ since that was just a couple minutes ago. I'm sick of reading one chapter every week. He always leaves the things on a cliffhanger and leaves you sitting there for a week

ARGH! - No I'm not a pirate

Well, now that I've vented a bit, I feel like I'm finally calm enough to write a post that all of you can read   I'll start with the exs. It seems that everyone of my exs seems to be contacting me lately. Well, not every one of them, but a lot of them. First, the most recent ex continues to send random texts asking me what's up or if I'm still awake at 2am. Some people sleep you know! Not me, but if I was normal, I'd probably be in bed!   Then last night I got a phone call from Michael. If

Say what?

ARGH! Ever have a night where you can't stop thinking? It's one of those nights for me. Thoughts keep going through my head and I'm not entirely sure that's a good thing. Usually when I sit and think it never turns out well, but we'll see. At least it's a nice night outside so I can leave my door open and get a breeze.   Not much new to update on. I think my brother knows I'm gay now if he didn't know before. We were having a party and the boyfriend had some homework due the next day so he was

Sick.

I'm sick of being sick. I think my fever is starting to break though. It's still at 101.2 but it stopped going up at least.   My sisters friends are alcoholics. This is the second night in a row they've been here and I'm starting to get annoyed. I need to move out. Maybe then I'll actually be able to sleep.   Short blog. I'm lazy and don't feel like typing.   Joe   (Who needs to eat.)

Eh why not...

So since people keep asking me about Valentines Day, I'll just blog it here.   Thursday night he took me to dinner at an amazing Itallian Restaurant. I had the salmon and the food was VERY good, but I couldn't eat it all beause they give you a hell of a lot to eat. The only downside was that they were out of Cheesecake for desert so I had to get some chocolate thing which would probably been very good if I was a chocolate lover, but it was way too rich and chocolately for me.   After that i

I hate this Fing Blog.

So no matter what, but whenever I post about a certain topic in here, it all goes to hell. And as much as I'd really like to post about that topic, I'm going to refrain because it's a pain in the ass and if it all goes to hell like it has in the past, then I'm going to be pissed. Royally. So if you know what I'm talking about, don't comment it in because I'm superstitious like that   Anyways, I don't know how long it's been since I last posted, but I assume it wasn't too long ago and I'm post

Redneck Cheesehead?

So I've decided to move back to Missouri once again at the end of the school year. I talked to my mom and told her I was basically miserable here and couldn't stand going to a school that I hated where I didn't learn anything. She agreed to let me go to UMKC next year and major in Computer Science instead. The only downside is that I'll have to live at home for at least a little while until I can save up enough to move out. Of course, I'm not going to tell her I plan on moving out until I do it,
