My boyfriend of three years told me today that he doesn't love me and can't ever love me like I love him. It makes me feel like such a loser. It even makes me sound like a loser. Even though our friends think I'm dating down.

I stood outside the library talking to my friends when I saw an old friend walk by. Instead of ignoring him I said hello and he said hello and it was very awkward until he said he had to go and left. His mother is dying and shouldn't live any more then three months but I don't have the heart to call him and ask him to a movie or see how he's doing. Some friend I am.

I turned 20 today. I thought that turning 20 would be a huge deal, that it would be like a funeral for my innocence and teenage years. Instead, I spent the day running around and taking care of cats and children. It was pretty lame.

Today was a really weird day. I Googled my name and I discovered the name Jeff Harris has been tainted by this freaky website, which ironically, I'm writing on right now.

They say you should play competitive sports because you learn more about yourself, but all I've learned is that I'm a childish, immature, petty, and cruel person. All of this decent-person stuff is just a ruse brought on by society.

A few days ago Finland elected a president for the next six years again, nice. Things are way too good in Finland... no worries for us.

A year ago I fell in love with someone I couldn't have, three days ago I slept with him and tonight he broke my heart and i spent the count down to the new year screaming at him while he tried not to cry. I haven't cried yet, I think I am kinda of numb, it's scary to think that I will never have a real conversation with him ever again. Good way to start 2006.

A month ago at a family lunch, Grandpa asked when he would be attending my wedding. This morning, mother told me that grampa asked her if my sister and I are married. I'm not sure what to make of grandpa anymore... he's always had a strange sense of humor, but now we're thinking he's losing his mind...

The girl I had been missing so much over the last two years suddenly mailed that she wanted to see me. We sat in the park's cold wind, drank hot chocolate and said what we both wanted to hear. I now have two toothbrushes on my bathroom sink again. Miracles do exist.

I dont care if you don't have anywhere else to go. No - I'm sorry, we're not family. You are the child of my father's first son from his first marriage. My mom was wife number four. Go bother the other two families and leave me alone. You wake the hate in me! You need a drink. Go have a drink and lose another child to the state.

In 2 days I am leaving on a plane to meet the love of my life in Denver, Colorado. In 6 1/2 months, we plan to get married and she's moving back up here to the Fairbanks area. We love each other incredibly. This will be the first time I am meeting her, but I already feel as if I have known her my whole life.

Today is my wedding day, and all I can do is sit in front of my laptop, scanning the various bits of other peoples' lives that are out there for everyone to peruse at 2:09 AM.

I made postcards about teeth this morning and stayed up all night writing an essay about venereal disease in Victorian France. I'm worried that I'll be robbed on my walk home. College is so weird.

I had two free VIP tickets to the Bob Dylan concert in Brixton. I asked out a man I really fancied (even though I had a boyfriend). I told him he was the third person I'd asked so he shouldn't feel special. We snogged all night, it was amazing! I felt like a teenager.

Today is my Mom's birthday. She was born in 1948 and is celebrating her birthday this year in Zihuatanejo, where the weather is clear and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. In Toronto it is raining, and the temperature is going to fall below zero today.

Thanksgiving today, and our family had our first turkey ever. I don't see what the big deal about turkey is. The first turkey 30 years after my parents first stepped on American soil, and I don't really care if we ever bake one again.

Last night I was at a party where the only guy I wanted happened to be the birthday boy, and he was passed out next to the toilet. I took off his shoes and brought him a pillow while he yelled at his brother for letting me see him. I am flattered he cared about what he looked like to me, but I am disapointed he wanted me gone so badly.

I've been playing a trivia game through e-mail with a few people I know, the daily Asimov quiz from the paper. Last week I got the highest ever score from the group, a 40 out of a possible 45 (they have charts and graphs, trust me). I beat all of the boys, and I needed somewhere to be all prideful for a second or two. Thanks!

OK, so I am at work right now. Bored really... it's not busy (I probably just jinxed myself, but oh well...). So my fantastic boyfriend is not picking up his phone at work, he is probably hanging out at the sheriff's office (he is a probation officer). I just want him to take the meat out of the freezer to defrost if he goes home for lunch, I forgot this morning. Sheesh... So I guess when I get home the chicken will have to go into the microwave...

We did a home pregnancy test twice and it was positive. The second one was done on November 7. On November 9, I started bleeding lightly after having only spotting on the prior days. On Thursday night, I saw a clot on my pad. When I woke up in the middle of the night, there was a huge clot. In the early morning, I heard something drop into the toilet. It was the size of a thumb. I told myself I must have lost the baby. We went to ER the next day and the doctor said that the cervix was closed. We had an ultrasound and we were told that it was still too early to see anything. Blood tests were done and we get the results tomorrow.

Today I heard on the radio about how someone's great aunt wanted to be buried with her cat when she died. Well, when the great aunt died... the cat was alive. So, the family put the cat down.

Tonight I went to Dairy Queen with the love of my life. I offered to get her a blizzard and I told her I wanted to get my own, but she said she just wanted some of mine. So instead I offered to take her to 7/11 which ended up in her telling me that I must not love her. The blizzard wasn't even that good and now I feel sick.

I ran around False Creek this morning - the whole thing! I feel great. Vancouver is magnificient whenever the sun shines on it, which is rare in November.

I turned 30 today! We rented a cabin in the woods and brought our dog. It rained the entire time, but we didn't mind... nothing a few puffs, a few tabs, some beers, lots of great music and warm clothes couldn't handle. The cabin had a wood stove and it got so hot we had to open all the doors and windows in the middle of winter! It was hilarious. By the end of the night, he was so wasted he ended up pissing in the fridge, I tried to make him realize what he did, then I heard him pissing again and this time he had pulled out a wood dining room chair and was pissing on it. What the hell? I have never seen anyone so oblivious to the world. Can you say hammered?? Funny stuff, I tell you, and I have evidence...

Last night was the first night in my new apartment that I wasn't woken up multiple times by a malfunctioning doorbell.

Last night I spent the night with the girl whom which I am totally in love. There was no sex, or even a kiss. Although we don't talk about it, we both know how important we are to one another. I just don't know how to tell my wife.

I started a new job last week and today I had to repeat an organic chemistry experiment that I tried in the first week. I did the experiment independently and was both relieved and impressed that I got the same results! I love science!

I just read this story: In late 2003 and early 2004, a team of large ladies was robbing clothing stores at gunpoint for money, sunglasses, purses, and plus-size clothes.

I'm planning my next tattoo, and I'm using the internet at work to research it. I'm feeling pretty slack these days. I need a vacation...

Today I was notified by CitiBank that my interest rate was going up. I was pretty happy, until I realized I do not have a bank account at CitiBank. Wow.

I'm having phone sex right now, and the challenge is to type this message while listening to what he's telling me to do...

I woke up at 12:30am thinking I would be late for school. I got all ready to have a shower but decided I didn't care if I was late for school and went back to bed. I woke up at 6:30am thinking about the crazy dream I'd had and then noticed I'd stripped all the sheets off my bed. I hate sleep disorders.
