Congrats Jill!! Very Happy


A stupid rant:

In the summer of 2013, I went to Burkina Faso (it's in Africa, right above Ghana) for a two week humanitarian mission. Needless to say, I had THE most amazing time of my life so far then. It was enriching, beautiful, and really all the cliché stuff you can think of.

Before we came back, we gave our contact information to some of the friends we made there. At first, it was amazing to still be able to get in contact with these people with whom we shared our experience there... But then, the conversations started being all "Hey, how are you? How's school? Yes, I wish I could come back too." It was honest... but it really had no meaning... We weren't discussing anything important but I could never bring myself not to reply at all. After a while, I just kept the messages sitting in my Facebook inbox until I was semi-sure they were offline and wouldn't answer, then replied.

I'm not a self-centered, hypocritical bitch, I genuinely am not. But... even now, almost a year and a half after we came back, the same meaningless conversations keep happening. What inspired this rant was one of my favorite people there getting WhatsApp and talking to me through my phone... and with these "Read" ticks, I cannot avoid conversation...

And I hate that. I hate that what's left of the single most meaningful experience I've ever gone through is a bunch of chitchat that has no value. It makes me think of the movie Before Sunrise, how the characters didn't exchange contact information in the end because they knew it would mess the memory up. They regretted it in the sequel lol, but I think they really had the right idea. I also hate that it makes me feel so much like an arrogant snob when I am annoyed at the sweetest people I've ever met.

Like I said, it's stupid, but ugh! >.<

awwa Rita <3 You know, they probably don't even realize it's annoying you, being in their own little world and with technology I find that people really don't 'think' it's just more 'automatic'. Not sure how to explain...I miss the good old fashioned pen pal days hehe, really I do. To me it made making contact more special, hand written and giving time in between to really add to it each time. Idk. You know, in settings there's an option to turn off your notifications. Maybe it would help? Then, when you have time or feel a need to reply it's not as stressful? Without hurting feelings, because you can honestly say you've just been busy. ^^ I get this a lot from a younger cousin of mine that really has issues health wise. Messages me a lot, talking about old times constantly and it can really be draining. I just have to remind myself to have patience because I know on her end, it's all she's got. Hope it buffs out for you, hugggssss

Yes, exactly! It doesn't mean you don't care for them, it just means you wish you could reply on your own time! And yeah, letters are great! You can take your time writing them, putting all info on them before getting one back. It's a lot more personal. ^^ But even online, I think most of us here have bonded with people through RK (at least) and even if it's purely virtual, we don't get tired of each other often. Maybe we have more in common? I don't know.

Thanks for understanding though, you're a gem! <3 <3 Huuuggss!

Firstly: Congrats Jill!! That's awesome news! Will we get to see pics? :3


Secondly: Rity, that's part of the reason I don't text or call anyone. Calling people and talking to them over the phone puts me on the spot and it gets awkward, I have to fill in the blanks with conversation that doesn't have any meaning. I like my private life to stay private, and I don't go out enough to have an interesting life. Who am I gonna talk to and what about? Bleh. And texting eventually just devolves into "oh cool Smile" or "kay" after a while and I hate that. So I totally feel ya there.

Thirdly: Lol, Minty. Suck it. I mean - Damn, you poor thing. Hugs and kisses xx

@ Viery - I have a feeling my brother would much rather have one of his childhood friends over his sister's boyfriend that he sees once or twice a year, so I highly doubt it!  I don't know if she will have any godparents actually.  No idea on my brother or his fiancee's thoughts on infant baptism.

@ Ahlia (and anyone else who wants to see the cutie!)


Counting down till I get to see her!

That 'fertilizing' American water finally paid off, my 'unofficial' step sister gave birth to twins this afternoon, a boy and a girl, Vinnie and Poppy.

Sometimes, I wish I could duct tape my daughter to a wall in order to keep those greedy, all exploring fingers from touching equipment she ought to keep her hands off. Such as my laptop, on which I wrote a wall of RP text to post. Only to lift my laptop with the intent to continue pounding away on my keyboard to finish the last phrase and see my screen go black with that 'pfeeew' *click* noise. Closer inspection showed she wriggled out the charger just enough to have it pop out, and as my battery doesn't charge anymore. The laptop simply stops working.

Fuck. Fuckidy. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

That is all.

Awh No Mystie that's a total RP killer Sad I know I've done stupid shit like that before and instead of writing it all again I just let the thread die :/



Jill she is positively adorable! So tiny! And cute!! N'aww!!! :3 Thanks for sharing, you too Bekah! My goodness there is so much hair on that tiny head!

There must be something in the water. Oh I know, it's 9 month belated Valentines day presents haha.
I've been a little bit broody lately. I don't want kids, I have implanon to stop me from having them but I think it's sending me a little hormonally insane. I see a baby and I just can't help myself now, and I used to be like AGH KEEP THAT THING AWAY FROM ME. Which is useful, I guess, because doing santa photography and my own photography business, I see alot of kids under the age of 2.

I think I'm addicted to seeing chubby toothless grins.

All I ever seem to say when I meet you guys in the tavern is; I'm very very busy. This is 100% accurate btw. I have no free time.
BUT, this Thursday I got off work (was such a pain in the ass getting a day off, shit, a day off, asking for so much, right?  Evil or Very Mad ) so hitting the town. I'm going to transform into a wrecking ball and HIT the town, super hard.

Also, college is difficult, leaving every assignment to the last minute and barely submitting on time. Work is shit at times but I'm starting to receive recognition for actually working hard. Pay raise on the table, not til January, whatever, won't be much if it happens.
Girls are... THERE IS NO TIME FOR GIRLS.

Playing with the idea of joining the gym and actually become the 6'6" monster I was born to be but... when could I ever get a chance to go? Maybe Smile

Last thing: I bought an Airsoft gun, an AK47 Razz . Hopefully I will get to bring it to a game or two soon, never been so should be fun!

Sooo, I have been working very hard on getting my health back on track.  I've given up on the doctors and done my own thing.  Finally I am seeing results in that I am able to be more active again, I have less pain, all is sunshine and roses right?  Wrong.  Because now my liver has decided to start playing me up again.  So now all I want to do is sleep and I have no appetite whatsoever.  Yes life, I did think that I was winning, thank you for throwing me another curve ball, I really didn't have enough on my plate as it was.  

On the plus side, I have been asked to write and then read an autobiographical short story that will be distributed with the Christmas edition of the Talking magazine, meaning that I will have a captive audience of about 300 people.  I keep this up and I might become a local celebrity Razz

You're doing great Aidan, we're very proud of you! ^^

oh Bekah *gentle squeezes* I'd like to hear updates please? will be sending healing thoughts to you <3 and also very excited for you too! you have worked so hard and am so very happy to hear you're getting a spotlight! hehe very well deserved! and totally would love to read it if it'll be available for me to get in my area? Very Happy

Not sure where to even begin. I've been very disconnected lately dealing with more than I think I can handle. There are days that I feel like I'm just done, and there are days I feel that maybe I can keep pushing forward. Will abso-fucking-lutely be glad when the holidays are over.

That is SUPER cool. If you can, please share the link so we can read your work (and give the magazine (specifically your piece) the clicks!)

I totally get it. I have an assignment I haven't started that is due... one day and eight hours ago. Razz But busy's good! And getting recognition is always rewarding. Good luck with all that! Smile

Trin and Bekah, I'll be sending you good thoughts! Hopefully things will start looking up before long! <3

Also, congratulations for your story, Bekah! Very Happy I haven't read anything of yours in a while, but I remember from long ago that I always enjoyed your posts in RK. Looking forward to reading this! (If it's ever available online.)
