It really annoys me when my friends go out of their way to be nice to people they don’t like. I think it’s a waste of time to care what other people think about you, particularly if you think they’re a big, soggy douchebag.
“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love”—Washington Irving (via jessiegrebby)
#16: 3 things you are proud of about your personality
1. My personality has a dark side. I might seem bubbly and happy-go-lucky, but if you listen, my words are laced with cynicism and sarcasm. I like this about myself because I think it surprises people.
2. I’m a fiercely loyal person. I like being someone others can count on and trust.
3. I’m genuine and caring and constantly thinking of ways I can give to the people around me. This can be a bad thing because I tend to neglect my own needs to make other people happy, but I think for the most part it’s something to be proud of.
You should have heard the old men cry, You should have heard the biddies When that sad stranger raised his flute And piped away the kiddies. Katy, Tommy, Meg and Bob Followed, skipping gaily, Red-haired Ruth, my brother Rob, And little crippled Bailey, John and Nils and Cousin Claire, Dancin’, spinnin’,turnin’ ‘Cross the hills to God knows where— They never came returnin’. ‘Cross the hills to God knows where The piper pranced, a leadin’ Each child in Hamlin Town but me, And I stayed home unheedin’. My papa says that I was blest For if that music found me, I’d be witch-cast like all the rest. This town grows old around me. I cannot say I did not hear That sound so haunting hollow— I heard, I heard, I heard it clear… I was afraid to follow.
Well, considering we only “dated” for a week (which involved going on one actual date, no kissing, and lots of internet flirting), I don’t have much to say. I guess I would apologize for being a lonely, hormonal teenager who took advantage of another lonely, hormonal teenager.
I would also apologize for dumping him via IM just a few weeks after his dad entered a coma.
