I just randomly forgot to check pweb for a few days. What the hell?

I feel a little bad whenever I laugh at the double entendre when someone mentions blowing someone off, and they mean it in the non-bad way.

I realised today that I honestly can't handle it when people pronounce Latin badly. Especially when they expect me to do it too. I just can't do it. I don't care if you're French, you're speaking Latin and it does have a specific pronunciation.



... Just thinking about it upsets me still. I have to go lay down now.

I run away from myself mentally to avoid hurt feelings.

I purposelly start fights when I'm on the phone with Nicole

My "best friend" is really pissing me off that I desperately want to start cutting him out of my life because I can't take it

I can't cut him out because he's the only guard for me as I fall from Nicole to suicide.

If she wasn't so stubborn and stupid to think I'd be okay with her staying with him I'd take her back...

I still love her.

It scares me to look back on the really special times the two of us had because I'm scared I'll never have it again. January 1, 2006 00:01AM, the exact minute I got engaged. Our trip together to Niagara.....I'm scared I'll never get that enjoyment, that happiness, that love and passion, again...with anyone else...

I'm trying....really stupidly hard....to feel even trace amounts of it.

And I'm failing.

In 3 days will be the 3 year anniversary of the first time I ever told Nicole that I loved her. It would be the last time until I first met her the next March.

Can you tell I miss Nicole?

These are my confessions (just when I thought I said all I can say...)
Stop trying to be perfect. Focus on being you; perfect will come.

I just picked up and opened my thesis to illustrate a point to a student about the beauty of having a finished thesis. And I was filled with an almost maternal love and pride. And now I want to read it yet again.

I'm vain about my writing.

I have not been doing as much work as I should be doing.
I have been complaining much more than I should.
I can't believe that people put up with me (which in itself seems kind of like a complaint, which frustrates me, and so forth).
I am not working as well with languages as I would like to be. I avoid certain words because I don't know how to spell them. It's getting to be stupid (for instance, in this post alone: is it whiny or whiney?).

Confession:

Every time I read that "Where's so and so" thread it makes me want to leave for a really long time, just so people will say "where the hell is Jani?!". How pathetic and narcissistic is that?

There was some rap music playing in my hall, and I was looking at Ela's avatar, and the beat was pretty close to the frame changes. It made me think of the bunny rapping or something, and made me laugh for longer than I think it should have.

(And I hope Jani saw that coming, because she certainly should have. Sorry if it doesn't mean as much if you haven't actually left.)

Back story: After my last confession, someone really cool told me to just post stuff because people enjoyed me being here.

Confession:

I hate it when I post things and no one replies.

I posted a thread (based on the advice from someone cool) with pictures of my cute, cute baby and only one sweet someone even said how cute he was!

screw that. did i confess to being ashamed of that? cause no.


real confessions, now.

-i sing a lot now that henry doesn't live here anymore. i don't sing nearly as much as i ever used to, but i do sing again. this is a very good thing. but not for the reasons anyone would assume.

-i put on my halloween costume ALL THE TIME and sing songs and dance around and pose for pictures that aren't being taken.
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

I figure things out way later than I should.

I had Tyler watch "The Lion King" for the first time the other day, and I just figured out while watching it this time that the voice of the adult Nala is the chick from "The Cutting Edge." Yep, it took me 'til I was 24 to figure that out!

Edit: Young Val!! I love your quote! I haven't listened to that song since High school! Yay for Jonathan Larson!

totally.

It even makes "Lion King 1 1/2" a version of "Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead" (which is a truly awesome movie/play)

I kinda like the idea of being an academic hoochie mama.

Not enough to actually be an academic hoochie mama, you understand. I just like the idea.

I have no idea what all being an acedemic hoochie mama would entail.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

It's more of an overarching statement about my life, I think, that I like Geek in the Pink.

Confession: My get-up-and-go got up and died.


Also Confession: I think I'm quoting, but I'm not sure. I'm so lazy that I don't care if I know where I'm quoting form.

Also Confession: The fact that I ended that above sentence with a preposition does't bother me near as much as it should. In fact, it doesn't bother me enough to change it.
