I was just about to write an angry comment to some idiot.
Yes, on Facebook – where else?

Another day closer to Jay.
I’m confident and anxious at the same time.
I guess all is as it should be.… Read more
I keep having these recurring dreams, of a girl I knew in high school. We only met once afterwards, at a reunion party in 2003.

We had a rocky relationship back then, in high school. To say the least.… Read more
