thank you ladies, very much.

but I don't know if i can chase my dreams. and it would disappoint my parents so much.

but I don't know how I'm going to be able to do what my brothers did. and in the end, a 9-5 job just isn't appealing to me.

but how do I tell my parents, who have so many expectations, that I don't think I can do ib/ap/volunteering/sports/extracurriculars, that all I want to do is write? where there is no place in this world for a writer, especially not one that isn't 'typical', one whose stories can't be made into a movie deal and there's no money in writing, no one reads any more, and getting published is impossible...

and I want it so much.

and I'm sorry for the rambling, but today I need to tell someone.

Oh. Damn.

I was hoping for Mr. Cans.
Never give up on your dreams, especially for others!! No!

Jeep, the *only* thing I've ever liked about myself physically are my hands. Thank you.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I have a thing for hands, too.
I did it again. I casually looked to my left and saw a spider crawling under the door. Crawling under a door! How did I even notice it? Ugh... Welp, that sucker's dead now.

I just realized where the phrase "barking up the wrong tree" comes from. It refers to an animal climbing up a tree to elude a dog, and the dog thinks it's in a different tree.
Watching SVU, I'm realizing how many times I was *actually* assaulted. It's pretty scary. I hope I can teach my future daughters to be stronger than I was and report this stuff.

Thanks, boss, for telling me the information I need to know. It would have been nice to know BEFORE I spent 20 minutes trying to do it the wrong way, but you know, nice to know *now.* and yes, you can fix it tomorrow, since you left early today and I had to do your work on my overtime, which yes, you will pay me.

I'm sleepy, can this day please be over so I can go home? I also need to learn to sleep at a decent hour each night because I am so not a morning person.


I am trying not to leave this country before July next year because I can assure you that if I leave there is a stong possibility that I will not come back. Why is it so hard to readjust to be back here? Why do I also cry when I come back? It's definitely time to move on.

Thank you for noticing.

I, too, am mortified when I see old pics of myself and remember how horrible I felt carrying all that extra weight. After seeing recent pics of myself, I still think I need to lose another 10-15. After that, I think my face may start to look too gaunt, so I'll be finished regardless of what the bod looks like.

Continued success to you and your husband!

"How many pages have you written?" and my personal favorite "Are you done yet?" Makes me want to hide under my desk

I don't know if you are college bound or what, but maybe try looking into writing programs? There are a lot of excellent ones out there, the one in Iowa (can't remember the name) being one of the most popular ones. Maybe if you do some research and present the information to your parents you can get them to let you do want you want. Hang in there!
