Going home for Thanksgiving. It will be good to be home. Parents will meet the new boyfriend. Hopefully that will go well. At least I'll get to show him so photos. I do love to show people photos... but I don't own any cats so I'm not old yet. My birthday is now in nine days. This isn't a countdown to see who will buy me the most. It is just that I'm feeling odd about turning 25... it seems like a big deal at the moment. I know that this is just a slight feeling of omg what have I done with my life wtf. (Like how I tossed out those lovely internet terms) But really what have I done. I think I need to reflect on that in a lovely tropical pool but I think I'll have to settle for a small bathtub in the upper 48.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

"Almost Doesn't Count"

"Almost made you love me
Almost made you cry
Almost made you happy, baby
Didn't I didn't I
You almost had me thinkin'
You were turned around
But everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

Almost heard you saying
You were finally free
What was always missing for you, baby
You'd found it in me
But you can't get to heaven
Half off the ground
Everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

I can't keep on lovin' you
One foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation
Of a heart that's never really sure
Can't keep on tryin'
If you're looking for more
Than all that I could give you
Than what you came here for

Gonna find me somebody
Not afraid to let go
Want a no doubt be there kind of man
You came real close
But everytime you built me up
You only let me down
And everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

Maybe you'll be sorry
Maybe you'll be cold
Maybe you'll come runnin' back, baby
From the cruel cruel world
Almost convince me
You're gonna stick around
But everybody knows
Almost doesn't count

So maybe I'll be here
Maybe I'll see ya around
That's the way it goes
Almost doesn't count"
- Brandy
I listened to this song in high school and I really know what it means now.

I have the right to lament the passing of relationship. Even if it meant more to me than it ever did to the other person. I have the right to be loved too. I want to be loved I want someone who will just sweep me up in their arms and want to hold me forever and ever. I don't know why I feel like such an old maid at such a young age. I think I was born to the wrong generation or maybe it was just my lifestyle that made it so hard to relate. I want to be selfish and self-serving and aloof. So, that I can keep a guy's interest but instead I become a doormat. I don't like that about myself, in fact I hate it. HATE IT
Yes I wanted you marry you ERIC! Because you were the one that made me feel sexy and loved and happy in my skin. I'm still all of those things but aside from losing about 15 lbs I don't look so hot. I look ill because I am ill. I know all the questioning might not seem to help but it does even I have always wanted an explaination for everything Eric was one of the few people in my life who while he didn't understand that was willing to try. Eric you are still a very important man in my life and I don't know if my feelings of love will ever return or if they should but I hope you don't just fade out like so many other people. I think that is why the held on so long too and cried so hard because you are my best friend and I don't want you to just go away. Too many people in my life just go away. I have to try to understand that I will never kiss you again or say I love you. I have to understand that we will never again be a true we.
How do I do that except time. And yes I do believe my dreams have a slight truth to them so fix your window please. Plus in away you have died to me. You aren't the person who you pretended to be.

I miss him. I hurt. I am more depressed that I remember being. I don't want to move on because it's hard to believe it is over. Heartless, heartsick, tired.
Is it better to be forever numb than ever risk being hurt. He took so much of my hope away from me and left only a hole. It is hard to believe he really wants to best for me.
