Oh yeah, I'll be fine in the morning. ...Unless I really am getting sick. But that's a whole different thing entirely. I just... Well, here is my side of the conversation in my driveway as I was being dropped off:
Quote:
Could we talk sometime? ... There's something I probably needed to talk to you about a long time ago. I've been mad at you for a long time, and it's gotten to a point where I don't think I can just let go of it without talking to you. Partly because I don't know if you're even aware of what's happened.
...Don't know if that's word for word what I said, but pretty close. I've been upset with, and felt hurt by, this guy (not the psych major. Totally different person) for five years. I don't know if it would've stuck so much if there hadn't been more things piled on top, but.... Yeah. Anyway. ...I'm thinking I may skip the New Years' Eve dance after this last dance experience.

ETA I think I'm headed to bed before I make myself more down than I already am. G'night!

....And instead of going to bed I talked to one of my roommates for two hours. It was a good, and much needed, conversation. Hopefully things will get better now.

I've really gotta stop eating all the chocolates from my advent calendar. I'm up to day 12 now and at this rate I'll have no more doors to open.. hah but the funny thing is, i'm closing the doors after i eat the chocolate. Sneaky :P they are yummy though, and so so tiny.

Morning.

I love how my brother and I were the first ones awake this morning and my parents are still sleeping. Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Usually if my mum's still asleep, i know for sure it's too early and i go back to sleep. But then, I don't even wake up when she does. I've been sleeping really late recently..

I went to bed unusually early last night, also. Which is probably why I woke up early.


ETC- I killed it.

Woah, i read back on my past fanfiction and am horrified at my grammar :O I never capped my I's. Well, okay I don't do it all the time in normal speech but I do it all the time (now) on my writing. It's one thing this forum has taught me. haha
