Maybe There’s Hope for Me Yet

What makes him love me? What made the others not really care about me? Sometimes I think I'm pretty good at reading people, situations, and relationships... When I pay attention that is. At least I used to think that. Over the past year or so, maybe it's been brewing longer... I've realized I often don't… Continue reading Maybe There’s Hope for Me Yet

Big Girls Don’t Cry

I've said it before - I hate to cry over men. Really it's more of a hate to let them see that I'm crying over them. Eventually, the closer I get and the longer I know them the more likely they are statistically to witness an outpouring of emotion I am unable to control before… Continue reading Big Girls Don’t Cry

Scary eyes

Now - back to some more regular programming. LOL as in - not just a whole bunch of pictures. Back to old themes and old memories - or in this case memories forgotten. In my first Treasures post, I mentioned a journal entry in one of the journals I shared with Anneke. It was a… Continue reading Scary eyes

Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

While we’re on the topic of Taylor Swift, I went back and perused my posts from February 2015 – when I started this blog – and came across one of the first posts I had written that was also a I-have-a-girl-crush-on-Taylor kind of post. What I had done is compiled and mashed up several of… Continue reading Taylor Swift Gets Me : Reprise

Our Song – You’ll Always be a Part of Me

As I drove along in the rain drizzle towards work, I listened to Taylor Swift’s Fearless album. It had been awhile since I had listened to Taylor, so I turned it up as I crested over the bridge headed out of town. Firstly, I’d like to say that some of you may know that I… Continue reading Our Song – You’ll Always be a Part of Me

Poetry escapes me

Late night thoughts. Enjoy ~   I am no poet; words of love have no place in my vocabulary and yet... Daily his name creeps across my thoughts Simple. His name. Followed imminently by the words "I love him." Without fail; as if the words are etched in my brain. I've become accustomed to this… Continue reading Poetry escapes me

Fear

I was talking to Maja about old movies tonight. I mentioned an '80s movie I watched after a long time last night - and how horrified I was at one part. I always expect '80s movies to get away with so much more than movies do today, yet this one part just... no. I'll write… Continue reading Fear

Happy Memory #5 – Dancing in the Rain

  His name was Andre and we were 19. I'd known him for awhile, we dated for three or four weeks when we were 16. After I moved away, we lost contact... only getting back in touch shortly before I moved back stateside after graduation. We decided to give it another go. Andre was, for… Continue reading Happy Memory #5 – Dancing in the Rain

Taylor Swift gets me

Listening to Taylor Swift as my theme at the moment. I generally start to get in a depressive mood around March and April - but it is threatening to come early this year. I decided that Taylor Swift would help me "Shake it off." So I've been listening to her for the past several days… Continue reading Taylor Swift gets me
