Dwelling on my past and who I am is inevitable while I stay here. Productivity has been low lately and I find myself either moping and hiding from myself or analyzing who I am and searching for answers to questions I'm not asking (or maybe am afraid of asking).

Re: I am the grammar master!
I think moping can be okay, sometimes. I sure the hell am some days. But contemplative, progressive thinking is the only way to make it better. Analytical thought as to how you got here, how you feel about it and what you can change is my focus right now. If I didn't, I go crazy.

You have strength in there, just pull as hard from it as you can and I think that you, as Patrick The Amazing (and sweet, oh so sweet) can get yourself into a better place.

I often contemplate my childhood. Things went to hell when my mom remarried, and such and so on. But I can only obtain my wisdom from her mistakes and misfortunes and the way she dealt with them. And if they didn't work, I formulate my own way.

We all love you. Seriously. And I know that can be said idly sometimes, but this is in true and utter sincerity. I've never heard a harsh word about you, and there's a lot to be said in that.

Half of the time we’re gone but we don’t know where and we don't know here.
I do feel like I'm at a good place mentally, in general. But I do worry about myself and I've found expressing it in my journal is safe.

I don't want to feel apologetic for talking to myself sternly.

Thanks for your kind words. :)

I was torn between "right now" and the 15-18 category. Personally, that was when my life started to really pick up, but I don't think it's the standard.

i said 2-5 because i loved being 4...but then again, right now is pretty good.


but - later might be better and i might think later that now was bad.


so ask me again when i'm 30. and if you don't, i'll hunt you down and force you to!!!! (over pho, of course.)

When I think back, the best time that comes to me is somewhere in the 6 to 8 range. Right now is good and getting better all the time. I don't know how i would think of now in five years, though. i think i might be more negative to my late 20s.

i'm all for you hunting me down, but how about pho now instead of then? how does friday suit you?

hope your thanksgiving is good too.

i'm working allllll day friday!!!!!!!! it's old spaghetti factory's busiest day of the year - and i'm the hostess! (well there's more than 1 but you know what i mean)


when i get my permanant schedule, you'll be one of the first to know when my free time is. it'd be sweet to go next week slash aSaP because i am vietnemese broth and noodle deprived to say the least.
