You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!


I’ve been staring at this screen forever.


That’s what I’ve come up with so far.

With the obvious exception of the words I just typed.


Actually, it’s another one of those instances where my mind is too full. So many thoughts swimming around in my head. I wish I could catch them all and put them on this screen.

But they don’t want to be caught.

And so they swim and they take up all the creative energy I could have. I need a space I can write. I mean really pour my heart out.

Or I need someone to whom I can pour out my heart.

It’s tough not having any real girl friends. Because there are certain things that just don’t sound the same when said out loud to your husband or guy friend. Boys are strange creatures.

Strange but much easier to befriend. Why is that?

I can’t be the only girl who has trouble keeping friendships with other women. It’s so annoying.

I should come up with a friend application…


Friend, must be female. Good balance of listener and chatty. Unlimited texts and cell minutes a plus. Those with a tendency to judge need not apply.

Or something like that.

Girls are tricky. I know I am. And other women? I understand even less.

I wish friends weren’t so important to me. It would be a lot easier if I just didn’t mind.

I’m open to almost anything at this point. I just need someone to listen.



The best presents ever

    I'll b ur friend! Where do I send my friendsume?

  2. MeMo07

    I'm down. Send me a DM to MeMo07 on Twitter, and I'll send you my number, and we can girly talk as much as you like.

    Except not about like Prada bags or anything, because I'm fresh out of those….. 🙂

    • Ha, trust me I know less than nothing about prada or any other name brand for that matter. Other girl talk would be great though.

    we have to skype… today? i'm home, so as soon as you wake up, let me know..

    • Yes we do! I've been crazy busy and it's hard to coordinate my schedule with European time. Maybe Friday? Email me and we'll set up a time. I'd love that.

  4. I go through periods in my life where I feel the same way, and my hubby listens to me complain about needing friends.

    Then something happens, I usually have a conversation with someone unexpected, feel better, and I go back to my normal life, with few friends, and am happy.

    I hope you find your release too.

  5. I'm DM'ing you my cell number. I don't have unlimited, but close enough. And I'm the least judgy person on the planet, unless we are gossiping about someone you WANT me to be judgy about 😉


    • Thank you. I need someone not judgy because frankly sometimes even *I* judge me. It would be great to talk. Now I just need to work up the courage to actually say certain things out loud.

    i have the same exact problem..

    It's the same way for me. I do have friends, but the majority of them do not live nearby. It definitely does stink…I think having cyber friends helps some, but we still need to get out with people IRL. Or at least I do! One of my goals for 2011 is to be more involved with some group of people…have you heard of I've met some people through there and suggest it. It's a great way to find book clubs, running clubs, movie clubs…anything, really!~ Let me know what you think 🙂

    • I have met a lot of great people with actually. The book club I joined I found through there and for a few meetings had tons of fun with a lot of fun girls that live in the area. Then everyone got busy and the group broke up. I have very little luck with friends. ::sigh:: I'm not done trying of course. Just frustrated.
