Dear Diary…

Dear Lord, It happened again. I blew it all out of proportion AGAIN. I turned a molehill into a mountain AGAIN. I forgot that this person had been moving earth and all to please me for months…at the thought that he was ignoring me, I didn’t stop to ask him to be sure if he was, I didn’t stop for a minute to try and be rational about it all, I didn’t stop to ponder on the fact that someone who loved me as much as he did would never ignore me… In fact, to be truthful to myself, he had actually just called me to ask me to “please” see him, how then could he ignore me almost immediately?

To My Single Ladies…

I saw this yesterday…. “So yesterday I met this girl who was so bitter &full of complaints over not having a Val on Valentine’s Day.

They didn’t cry to the world over it. Get a life &stop fussing over a man when you are a complete entity on your own.That wasn’t a bad answer was it? LOL” I also saw Femmetotale’s comment on her blog for me to do a post on how my valentine celebration went and voila! I had an idea on how the post should […]
