Wow.  A second day in a row.  I might actually get through a week before disappearing on this meme again.  😉 So today would be Day 9: Day 9: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted. I’m sure there have been plenty of people that this could apply to, but there are a couple who I can think of right off.  I guess I should go with those, since my brain is having its own “Freudian slip” by me thinking about them. I didn’t want to let go of Marakie.  She was probably my closest friend while I was at A&M, but I haven’t talked to her in over a year now.  She’s from Ethiopia and, after she graduated from A&M (and then Tulane), she went back there.  We stayed in contact while she was there, but after she moved back to the States, she seemed to disappear off my radar.  I guess that maybe real life got to be too much or something.  I don’t know.  I miss her, but I guess that (for now) our friendship is on hiatus. I’m not as close with other people from my past, as I had been.  I think for a long time the first person who would have popped into my mind is Stephanie.  Oddly, since we reconnected on Facebook, I don’t feel that drifting feeling anymore.  I guess just knowing that she is still there, and that she still exists, gives me some level of hope that I had lost for so long. The only other person that I can truly think of right off would be John Allen.  He was my lab partner in Chem I during my sophomore year of high school.  I had a crush on him that lasted quite a while.  I would write him notes every day that year.  If I didn’t, he would make some comment about how I hadn’t written him and he would act depressed.  (He told me at one point that he had the notes stored somewhere at home.)  He was also the only guy that I would willingly let copy my homework in the three classes we shared.  (Everyone else ended up copying off of his copy of my homework.)  I finally told him after the end of his Junior year (right after I took the GED & before I started to college) that I’d had a crush on him.  We lost touch after that until we reconnected on Facebook.  He deactivated his account around the time that our mutual friend was (accidentally) killed, and I haven’t heard from him since.  I miss having the ability to just send him a message, and I miss sometimes getting a message from him.  (He was the only person to tell me happy birthday on my 16th birthday and he was the first one to say it to me on Facebook.)  I miss him teasing me about my lack of driving skills.  I even miss him copying my homework.  So, I definitely think he belongs in this post. And now I feel completely embarrassed at how reliant I’ve become on Facebook for my interpersonal relationships. Original Article

30 Days of Truth: Day 9




 snicketyflick replied to your post: Review: Burnt Offerings this one’s one of my fave’s. i love it when she goes we are the thronnos rokke we are not food and then she totally pwns padma. good times That part was awesome.  The only bad part about it was when Gideon and Thomas were suffering along with him.  I know that’s part of the whole human servant thing, but they seemed too nice to have to suffer like that.





Chris Colfer’s character Kurt (the gay one) was added only after the producers auditioned Colfer and decided to add a role for him. There was originally no plan for a gay character. I see the theme of the show as the struggle of high-school misfits. It’s popular not because it pushes a liberal agenda but because it engages the audience’s willingness to root for the underdog and to remember their own awkward moments of adolescence. It is also, as the OP says, very, very sweet. This post reminded me that same-sex affection is what *really* has Mormons torqued. Kurt is about the only character on Glee who hasn’t had sexual experiences of any kind. The only thing remotely sexual is a schoolgirl crush from afar he’s developed on another character. Contrast that to the amount of sex that almost all of the other characters have had. Clearly, the objection in Mormons to all things gay runs deeper than just issues with the Law of Chastity. It’s gay people–their lives, their affections and their struggle for acceptance– that are seen as objectionable and unwholesome. It doesn’t matter that Kurt is chaste; he’s unwholesome more or less by definition. MoHoHawaii (This was posted before Klaine officially became a couple, but I thought it was well-stated.)
