@adorable-eggplant Thank you so much for your reply, and I'm sorry I abruptly deleted my comment. I suddenly remembered that I have a very specific handle that I use for almost every site I comment on and for my blog so I didn't want that to pop up when you searched my name :/

Not that anyone's obsessively googling me! I'm not that self-centered, I was just feeling very exposed for a second. Again thank you for the advice, I'll remembered it :)

@bessmarvin HOLY SHIT, I have nothing to add except this guy sounds like a massive douchebag and you are so much better off. I know your friends have probably all said that, but still.

Also just so you know, not all guys are like that after you break up. Some are nice and patient with you, and genuinely care and only want the best for you, the relationship simply wasn't right and that's ok!

On 11 Summers Away

Some of this is horrifying, but I'm also really jealous of you. I always wanted a special camaraderie with camp people like this, but I only went to sleep away camp twice and I didn't talk to the girls I became friends with there much after we went home.

On Interview with a Person Who Used to Be Paralyzed

@laurel No idea, the woman I saw in it looked like she had just sprained her ankle or something actually on the beach was getting wheeled away. I would hope so since it's made for the beach!

On Interview with a Person Who Used to Be Paralyzed

@laurel Saw this at North Ave beach a couple of weeks ago and everyone was just like, "IS THAT A BEACH WHEELCHAIR?! THAT'S AMAZINGGGGG!"

@Sea Ermine I would take my advice with a grain of salt because in my profession depression, anxiety, etc. are more common than others so I think I was given a lot of sympathy because of that. I was very honest, but made sure to underline that I've have been on a routine that works for me for the last six months and that working does me more good than bad so as to illustrate to them that I most likely wouldn't have a random meltdown.

I do think most employers would appreciate candor over a glossing over of events because it shows to your character that you accept what you are and what your life is rather than trying to forget everything.

I hope some of that helps!

I was kind of having my freak out moment, and am feeling better now. We've already talked about everything, even the logistics of talking and it's going to be ok :)

Now I'm hoping we can have an awesome next few weeks together.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) No advice, just came to say I know how ya feel. I stopped drinking and now people forget to call me all the time when they're going out.

Maybe you just have to accept that you are the initiator in your relationships (if that's the usually case)
