After acting as best man at a friend's wedding, I can absolutely recommend the way he married: on an island with only three friends as wedding party. It was beautiful and totally relaxing.

We hang out and speak and act like we are dating. We go to parties and retreat to the corner so it is just us and yet he has never made a move. He makes this effort like he wants me and every time I give him the opportunity he turns around a chooses to go home alone. Tonight we sat on my porch talking like we had known each other for years, like we were already together and then he proceeds to invite people we know from work over. I sat there and watched the girl and him silently text to each other and then leave together. I want to cry and for a moment I actually still thought maybe it's nothing, maybe I should still wait around for him? And then I realized he is not worth it. If he doesn't want me now I shouldn't fucking wait for him to want me later. I'm done

I found a baby bird. He cried and cried, and so did I. I tried to make a temporary nest, to ease the pain. But he still cried, except for when his little head was resting on a leaf pillow. So I took him to a bird shelter 40 minutes away. I hope he grows up big and strong and can fly away some day... How am I ever going to have kids?

Every day I wake up and am constantly afraid of people leaving me. Today was no exception. I wish this would stop.

I hadn't seen my cousin Kathryn since the late '40s, or maybe it was the early '50s. We were children back then. She said she'd bring her boat to the marina and meet me there. I said I'd be driving a small grey car. So I came around a corner and there was the marina - about fifty cars, about fifty boats. I drove down a hill and headed towards the "Store" sign in the far corner. I slowed down for this lady crossing the roadway. She stopped, looked at my car, and smiled. She came around to my window, I opened the door and stood up, and we looked at each other. Then came a long overdue hug, and "Tony, what happened to all those curls?" It was Kathy.

I rode an old horse along a winding trail through an Aspen grove, under the influence of the mountains and mead.

That was quite the exit this morning. He was a just a stripey furry wee guy but the hole he's left in my heart is huge, and the forties have been my best decade because of him. Thank you Rumble.

I visited the doctor, I was suffering from a clogged ear. I was diagnosed with "Surfers Ear" which is the common name for exostosis (abnormal bone growth) within the ear canal. Over time irritation from cold wind and water cause the bone surrounding the ear canal to develop lumps of new bony growth which constrict the ear canal. The condition is so named due to its prevalence among cold water surfers. Surfer's ear is not the same as swimmer's ear. The condition can occur in any activity with cold, wet, windy conditions such as kayaking, sailing, diving, etc. The condition is progressive, making it important to take preventative measures early. I fear my only cure is to have my ear canals bored open with a drill. Yikes!

I don't know anything about myself anymore. I keep seeing faint glimmers of what I'd like to be, but it never lasts and my feelings are only becoming fewer and farther between. I feel more and more separated from the things and people I used to love, and have realized even recently that all of my previous interests and motivations were pointless and stagnant to begin with. I've never felt so lost and grown up at the same time. Things are drifting and I don't know how to bring them back together, or if it even matters. I think I need help.

I took a picture of myself trimming bushes and posted it to my website as my daily portrait. Just like you did.

Everyone I know is either getting married, engaged or having kids. I chose a career instead. Now I'm the stylish little bitch with a nice apartment and a boyfriend. I can't make him propose, and now I can't help but wonder if anyone could ever love me enough to ask?

I sewed my own wedding dress today. I can't stand all those poofy, white, overblown and overpriced wedding dresses, it's a big racket and I refuse to take part in it. Screw you industrial wedding complex, I'm doing it my way.

I think I've discovered that there is a mutual "I am attracted to you" between me and someone else, but this has never happened to me before and I think I just will never have that kind of relationship ever, because I don't know what to do.

I went to school. Bored. Felt like jumping off cliff. Story of my life. I'm writing this trying to procrastinate (sp?). My homework is on the life of Jeffrey Harris. Listening to Linkin Park. Thinking about how I hate it when people mispronounce my name. It's SO-FIRE, bitches!!!!!!!! Sorry. My life sucks. Sorry. Felt bad about swearing. :) I'm so tired and feel bad about missing out on netball practice this morning. My legs don't feel like my legs. It is a cold winter's day...

I looked up my entry for May 19th 2007. And I cried. I love my daughter so much - I can't express that love. Everyday she overwhelms me. How can I have been so lucky?

My son was born. We're best friends and I'll do my best to keep it that way.

Yesterday i found out that I have a disease with no cure. I cried for a minute. I guess the good news is I won't die from it. But now I have to live with this inside of me. Who will love me now? I can feel the virus in my body, in my blood - the blood that feeds my brain, my heart, all my organs. I'll never forget waking up and the first thing that I hear, "good morning, there is no cure for you."

My parents are getting a divorce. I think I'm sad but I'm more confused at not feeling sure about what to feel.

I left for Reykjavik today. Traveling to Iceland was a dream come true, and I was determined to do it alone, just my camera and I. Here's to crossing off an item on my life's To-Do list!

I need more of him in my week. But I am the one when there's no one else to have dinner with. I miss him and he's so busy with everyone else but me. Enough.

I'm coming to grips with the fact that my two little sisters will both be married before I even have another boyfriend.

It was a friend of a friend's birthday today. My birthday was tomorrow so we celebrated them together with mutual friends. I didn't like her very much but I tried to be nice. Our mutual friends brought us to a fancy wine bar. I was paranoid and ended up drinking too much and listened to the birthday girl complain all night. I ended up sleeping in the birthday girl's brother's bed after puking all over a sidewalk and her bathroom. The next day was my birthday. I thought it over, went home and spent that day in bed.

Wollte gerade die Spülmaschine einräumen, bis ich merkte, dass das Salz Alle war. Hab das Salz und den Spültab nachgefüllt und die Spülmaschine eingeschalten. Was für banale Dinge des Tages.

I miss Ben. I should learn to walk with my eyes open to grab the moments. When he comes back from his travel, I will throw him against the wall and kiss him.

I keep waiting for him to hurt me and somehow he hasn't. Maybe I'm used to dating guys who treat me like shit. Everyone says that he is kind and good to me and that I should relax and trust that he will not hurt me. i still am nervous as hell. Tonight he didn't call me, maybe I should go back to my low expectations.

I booked my flight today. In one month I will be in Munich, and for one week I will get to curl up under her covers and feel her skin against mine again. I hope that this time I am on my best behaviour, that things don't get as tense as they did on the Nova Scotia trip. This will be my first trip across an ocean, I want to come back with fond memories...

I went for dinner with a friend tonight. he offered to treat and so we enjoyed fine wine, wild meats, exotic cheeses, and rich decadent chocolates. Then he left me with the bill.

I buried my father today. He was 57 years old and a chain smoker. On New Year's Eve he had a massive heart attack. I am living in the Middle East and had not seen him for 6 months. I wonder if I will ever stop missing him?

The worst news - he is getting married to someone he just met and dated for a couple of weeks. I feel like my wasted heart has been plunged with a cold, icy thorn. Why was I pinning for him for so long, believing he belongs to me?

I hurt my back lifting equipment to finish building my new carport... which was finished 2 days later, but my back still hurts.

Had to call 911 for my mom while "celebrating" New Year's Eve. Her brain tumor almost killed her.

We're not supposed to have a lot of Christmases left together, you know, because he is sick. Or maybe we will. You know what? We will. Because I've started believing in miracles again.

Today I'm sitting in class and we're supposed to be working, but I'm looking up info on Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy.
