My "Bubble"

My friend Patty has many many many times reminded me that I need to work on my skills of "self-preservation" and not let people affect me that shouldn't be doing so. Such good advice, that I seem to never have the courage to take. I seem to want to find that validation in people.

Last night was a test of my co-dependancy issues. A guy that I met out in California was feeling really down and depressed and I could feel myself "falling for him"(as in finding myself wanting to save him and dating him if that was the way to do so) so I could help him. I should have "helped him" by calling the proper authorities and then ran like hell for the hills. Instead I said that I'd like to see him while I'm out there and he said he'd call. I'll give myself some points on this...I totally caught myself getting involved with someone because I can "save" them, and I'm aware that I need to watch myself around him. BREAK THIS CYCLE. (that's a command to myself)

In other news, no call from Romanian boy, and according to popular opinion, too much time has passed and he will not be calling. I am definitely disappointed because he seemed interesting (and cute) enough to want to talk to again, he does not define my self worth. Maybe he thought I was ugly, maybe he had a girlfriend, maybe he's too afraid to call, maybe he thought "that girl was too drunk, I don't want to associate with that", or 100 other reasons that DO NOT AFFECT ME and I shouldn't let them hurt me.

I'm going to get some glasses tonight I think. That makes me nervous because I don't think I have very good taste in stuff like that. I like "cat glasses" but I'm not sure that I can pull them off.

Good job catching yourself from falling for that guy. As far as Romanian boy goes, don't worry about it. A friend of mine got a call from a guy that she gave her number to over 6 weeks ago the other day. haha. I say just wait it out and if he does call, go with the flow. Chill with him as friends first and see what happens.

The best revenge is living well. Living well can only be defined by each individual, but my definition is making mofos eat their hearts out when I walk by. Hence my Workout Playlist is ESSENTIAL to achieving that. It all comes down to iPods. LOL.

Stop being a drunk and learn how to drive.

You have a cute face.

I can drive, damnit! Its not my fault a deer hit me in front of my office on a Navy base, but it IS my fault that I speed like a demon.

The stop drinking...good, good, good plan.

For what it's worth, my general rule of thumb is waiting 4 to 7 days before calling a girl.

Ok, so he called yesterday and I'm going out to dinner with him tonight. We'll see how this goes because he spent our phone conversation yesterday explaining natural gas and fossil fuels to me. The saddest part? I already knew all the crap he was telling me.
