To tumble again or not to tumble again. That is the question

Power Outage At Work

  • ME: I need to file but the room is pitch black and all the flashlights are being used.
  • CO-WORKER: I have some candles you could use.
  • ME: aww gee thanks. I never thought to put a burning candle into a room full of paper.

I would like to explain something about my concussions to everyone. When I was a sophomore in high school my first set of concussions were so bad I lost a lot of memories from 8th grade and below. The only reason why I remember the good memories is because Joe Tomci took my old diaries, pulled out all the good stories, read them to me aloud, and then burned the bad stories.

I truly and honestly do not remember much of the bad that was done to me or the bad that I had done to others. I have heard from more than one person that i wronged them in the past. I would like to rectify these incidences to the best of my ability.

If I have wronged you please do not hesitate to tell me in detail privately. I want to understand. I want to make things right. All I want is for people to be happy and to feel loved.

Wow as I look through all of these dating site profiles I can’t help but think how lame some of them come across on paper. Almost every single guy said their ideal first date would be “Dinner and a movie”.  O hey that’s great because being in a dark room with someone I’ve never met before is exactly what I want to do. Yes, please butter my popcorn and “accidentally” caress my arm. That’s what every girl dreams of on a first date with someone you’ve never met. Also, it’s pretty unoriginal and doesn’t explain anything.  I’d rather you say “you know whatever” or “murdering babies”. I don’t care. Just be original and honest. Maybe you actually like going to the movies. That’s great. I do too. In my opinion not the ideal setting for a first date. How about you try to convince me why you like it so much. Then again I’m the dork who put this as my idea of the perfect first date.

"Go ice skating at the local rink. Then the lights go down, the disco ball comes out, and endless love plays over the speakers.


"Friends listen to ‘Endless Love’ in the dark" "


It’s true though. If a guy did this on our first date I’d probably get down on one knee and ask him to marry me. 

and this ladies and gentlemen is one of the many reasons why I am single.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh jackets. you silly.

I think that’s one of the smartest things the Jackets have ever done. Especially in a shortened season. Look how it’s worked out for them. They are doing well and everyone is held accountable for their actions. <3

My extended family has struck again. Someone signed me up for a dating website. I succumbed. Whatever I’ll go with it. What’s the worse that could happen. This website is a lot better than the time someone signed me up for SugarDaddies.com behind my back. Ya that was awkward.

My issue here : Why is my family always trying to get me to date someone? They once went so far as to ask me if I’m a lesbian. I’m not and if I was it wouldn’t be a bad thing. I’m single partially because I choose to be. I’m not going to run out and get with the first guy that shows me interest. Contrary to popular belief there are guys that like me. Do I like them? No. Why? because I can’t see myself with them for the rest of my life. Heavy, I know. It’s not so much a marriage thing either. I literally look at the situation like this “Will this person be with me for a good chunk of the rest of my life?” This is a new thing for me. I used to overshare my life with EVERYONE. Random people on the street. “Hey lets be besties forever”. That’s great. That’s sweet. Then there comes a time in your life when you realize that you need people in your life for the long run. People who are going to be there for the good times and the bad times. The kind of people who will be both compassionate and blunt with you. People who love you for who you are at your core and want you to build upon that core. I guess in other words I’m picky. Yet, I’m open minded and have put my full trust in God with this situation. So if a guy comes along that’s not “the usual” guy I go for and my gut says “go for it” I’m going to go for it. Although, my gut is telling me to “go for it” in a situation and I’m all “Oh no no no”. Because he’s ugly? No, he’s a dreamboat. Because he’s lame? No, he’s like the sweetest/funniest person I’ve met in a long time. Because he’s nothing you want? No, it’s because he seems like everything I want.  Note, I said seems.  I don’t know him that well. We’ve never really had one on one alone time. I have this problem where I only see the good in people and cling to that goodness. You may say it’s not a problem but it is. See I cling to that goodness and then when something “bad” happens I get flipped upside down. I claim I don’t see it coming. Then when I take a moment to look back on it all the signs were there. I’m great at reading signs for other people. I’m horrible at reading signs when I’m involved. Knowing that about myself I force myself to look for signs and bad attributes. I can’t read him at all. Even worse, the only bad thing that happens when we talk is the silence I create. That’s right sometimes I get so caught up in the moment I become silent and just stare at him.  *sings* Awkward. 

Basically what I’m discovering : I need to let someone pursue me. I need them to make the move. A big move.  A move that I can’t deny is a move. I need to stop going over conversations in my head at night before I fall asleep. I need to listen more and talk less. I need to not care. Most importantly I need to not let me family bother me so much when they do something like sign me up for a dating website OR ask me a million questions about why I’m still single. I know they are only concerned out of love. I know they want me to have a billion kids. I know they want me to be happy. I am happy but they want me to have companionship. Someone who gets me. At least they care about my love life. Hopefully when I finally bring someone around they’ll be supportive. <3
