I highly recommend telling a guy you like him. I did today and he ran through the sprinkler with me. I hadn't done that in years. :)

Maybe it's because I don't have children of my own, but I really don't think the fact that your friend is having her second child is a reason for you to leave work. It's not like she need's a birthing coach or anything. They have visiting hours for a reason, people!

I spent two hours touring men's bathrooms with security guards, and explaining the toilet vandalism situation to my superiors.

Being married is harder than I thought. I don't know what gave me the idea that I could do it.

My dog and I were out in the neighborhood walking this morning. She was on a leash. Three dogs came out of an open fenced backyard and attacked my poor dog. Hours later, I'm sitting by her, lampshade collar, stitches, drains, and bruises later wondering how any living creature can be that mean.

I'm on call for my lame summer job at a retail store today. I thought only doctors were on call. However, I was wrong. I guess rich customers not being able to get their size immediately is an emergency too.

I have been suffering from depression and anxiety for the past ten years and have done nothing about it until recently. I have been in group therapy for four and a half months and today is my last group. It was the best and hardest thing I have ever done. This is the happiest day of my life.

I have the propensity to meet fascinating strangers on planes. After a three-hour long conversation flying over mountains and desert, I felt I really knew Brad. And I started to worry about his mom. I hope things are going to be OK for them, and I wish there was some way I could find out for sure. But that's the problem with chance encounters. You're thrown together for several hours, worlds collide, and then you go off on your merry way.

I met an amazing guy last night at a bachelorette party. After two hours of conversation, dancing, and getting to know each other, he told me that he's unhappily married. I gave him my business card and he called me afterwards. Should I feel guilty for telling him I would still do lunch with him next week even though he's betrothed?

Today was my mom's 5Oth birthday and I got to sing her a song. I cried in the middle of it.

I bought a house that I can't afford, just because I didn't want to move again.

I had to rent a Lincoln SUV to drive my boss to an interview. At a red light on the way to pick her up I was asked for change by some kid. I said I was sorry, that I didn't have a penny in my pocket. He didn't believe me. I have $3.54 in my bank account and I have to pay rent in a few days.

I took a trip back home, but didn't at all go home. I met a girl I used to see exactly a year before. She picked me up at 5am and right from the first kiss, the in between, and to the last, was nothing but awesome. I burned so much money though but the memories picked up will probably last forever.

Someone told me if you want something you should write it down. I want change, I want sanity, and I want Tim. Oh, and I really want jello.

Today is the day that my house burnt down. It ruined my life for a while but that is okay. I am alive and living somewhere else. I can still contribute, and this makes me feel good.

I have been working like crazy. Today I got home after working a double yesterday and another shift today, my boyfriend and his friend are drunk - I'm jealous... I wish I could spend a saturday drinking and having fun instead of working. It's hard to hang out with people you're jealous of.

In a conversation with others, my boss pointed to me as an example and guessed that i weighed 140 lbs. I called him a little shit. Although I weighed myself today - and i do.

I took off my shirt in fear that paint would damage it. I figured my pants were low enough to avoid such a catastrophe so I kept them on.

I'm housesitting for friends with two little ones and another on the way. There are toys, parenting magazines, and childproof devices everywhere. It's such a change from my single world. I kind of hate it, but I kind of want it, too.

The phone was ringing way too early this morning but I managed to stagger down the stairs to answer it. As I was walking past the couch, I realized that a complete stranger was sleeping on it. Apparently, I need to start locking my doors.

Today I called my sister to wish her a happy birthday. I got her answering machine, so I left her my best impression of a sing song message. It wasn't her birthday. Her birthday was the day before.

We were supposed to get engaged and today he told me that he'd changed his mind and he was sorry.

I was in a public bathroom today and I overheard a woman talking to her friend. She was saying that her stomach hadn't hurt this much since she had a miscarriage. I was so confused. I had to wonder how she meant it. Was she matter-of-fact? Regretful? Flippant? A weird thing to overhear.

The last time I checked his email I found out he knocked someone up on one of his drunken nights before we were became a 'serious couple'. A secret he kept from me. She had a miscarriage. This time I check his email and find an email he signs "xoxo yours forever". I feel sick to my stomach because I can't tell him about it without admitting to snooping. I realized that I love him more than I let on, and if i get a divorce than I feel that I will be labeled as a failure. I can only log in to his email and check every now and then to see who this person is and what they have to say.

I look and feel awful because I just had horrrible plastic surgery done to my face.

I spent one week in Poland on a trip with my design school. Poland is totally diffrent then I had imagined. Then I met a girl. She didn't speak german and english well. And then... it was a wonderful week, just looking, kissing, not talking. Like in a fairy story. Back home, I think... shit how could that have happened?

I woke up at around 6:00 am thinking that the pain I have near my groin was just because I had to go to the bathroom. I've had this of pain before and all I had to do was stand up or stay still and it would go away. But it didn't. It got stronger every minute and started to spread to my left side. I felt like passing out. "Kidney Stones" the doctor said. The next day I drove myself back from the hospital.

I saw Val Kilmer at Logan Airport today. He is so much cuter in real life!

Today I am at work wearing a skirt that I sewed from scratch. I just noticed that one of the seams is coming loose and I have to refrain from taking out my sewing kit at my desk.

I saw a psychic for the first time today. He said nothing to suprise me... He also didn't charge me for the reading because he said I didn't need to be there.

I crawled out of bed at 9:30am to do a surprise phone interview. I was surprised I could put two coherent thoughts together but it got me a face to face interview at 3pm.

I wore cute, but painful shoes today. When I got home, my feet were blistered and bleeding. My dog licked all that away. She's too good to me.

My family had a heated Scrabble match - my aunt threw her letters on the table and gave up.
