I think I’m psychic

Or at least have some abilities. People usually get jealous or find it intimidating. They’re always wondering how I seem to know everything. They want my advice all the time but then I start to feel sort of used.

Spending way too much time

wondering about the I Saw You people. Do they ever get together? Or are they just a bunch of lonely people desperately looking for connections in all the wrong places? Building up a casual comment or professional smile into something too big. I only wonder because I've been guilty of this - thinking someone really liked me, but they were just being polite. I hope those people are more aware and realistic than I was.

Misunderstanding?

I bumped into someone I thought was a friend today who made an excuse not to stop and chat. When she walked away she said “see you around.” I know what that means. It’s too bad people don’t talk things out anymore. Vanishing without a trace is somehow easier than having a conversation. I don’t get it.

From Personal Experience

Kitten formula tastes disgusting. I also don't like carrots, but that's beside the point.

It's a minefield out there

I've learned only to make comments to people you have actually met outside of the Internet. Also to actually read articles before commenting on them. You never know what sort of drama you will receive.

Drinking

It’s weird that I miss someone so much when I’m drunk but when I wake up in the morning I’m disgusted. I think my brain misses aspects that seem devastating when I’m drunk but when I’m sober those aspects seem minuscule compared to the big picture. Time to lay off the booze.

Hollywood North

I've been making fake backgrounds for movies and TV for so long that it's all I see. It's like knowing the magicians secret, you can't enjoy the magic show.

Good god

Looked at myself in the mirror. 53 years old and fat. I got so ugly.

Flashback of the summer flings

Do they ever pop back in your mind all of a sudden? Dates, flings, even short relationshipa. I haven't thought of them for years, almost completely erased them in my mind. Then I would be washing the dishes and "BAM" a flashback. And it's always the ones that liked me more than I liked them. Where as the ones who broke my heart, well, I still think of him often for two years now. I would wonder/hope he still thinks about me, too. Then I realized "Oh... I must be like one of those flashbacks to him, someone he has forgotten about." It's something I could never talk out loud as it sounds so pathetic.

I live on rice Krispy squares

and A&W root beer. Tell me the truth, and don't spare my feelings, is there any greater felicity in the entire world?

I SAW YOU

Liberty's Golden Hair

Tried taking video at the downtown event. You wore this inside job shirt, a petite blonde. IG...

SAVAGE LOVE

Savage Love: Sexless relationship means it’s time to break up

When one partner’s insecurities about their appearance are amplified by the other’s total lack of attraction to them—and sex is absent—say “bye-bye”.
