I'll never be famous enough to be on Vanity Fair...

  • What is your current state of mind?
      • Anxious as hell... I feel like the world is changing... me along for the ride trapped in the trunk.
  • What is your idea of perfect happiness?
      • Seriously doubt such a thing actually exist. That's like believing in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny ... It just isn't real.
  • What or who is the greatest love of my life?
      • All of them feel like that at the moment in which you are with them... but so far ...

  • I miss home so much, that at times i just start crying upon the realization I will probably never return.

  • #2 makes me feel really guilty.
  • I often feel that i ❤ Ant more than he loves me. I figure eventually he will be sick of my crazy & leave me. He will leave for someone else, like he did to his ex with Melissa.
  • I feel like I will never be really happy, I will forever be tainted with the slight aftertaste of depression. It has been this way since I can remember... I can't imagine It will ever change.

I wrote the prior list thinking it would appease the angry...but it just made it worse. In an attempt to make the angry subside I am writing this list. (I love quotes) . Here goes nothing...

  • “What have you been reading, the gospel according to St. Bastard?” Eddie Izzard

  • I love the smell of Gasoline.
  • I hate it when people are late. I'm ok of if they call to tell me they are running late, but when someone flakes i get irrationally angry. It also bothers me when you make plans with someone, they are a few hours late and then they get annoyed at you because you made other plans.
  • When i was in catholic school I stole one of the nuns bras from the convent and wore half of it as a helmet. ( The bra belonged to a nun called sister Maria and it was HUGE)
  • I used to go to confession to get out of biology class, i would make up really scandalous sins that way, i would end up in confession longer & miss the whole class.
  • I don't really like talking on the phone, i do, because there are a lot of people i never get to see & that is the only way...
