"I will mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."

What goes up must come down.

So I had my second date with Abby last Wednesday. We started out having coffee, and then went for drinks. It was good, and now I know for sure it's not just a friend thing.

Friday I got approved for my amazing new apartment (unfortunately I won't have pictures of it until I move in - it's...

So it's kind of been a tumultuous few weeks. Everything is in a state of flux.

A couple of weeks ago I saw this chick on OKC that looked vaguely familiar, so I sent her a message. Turns out she's the little sister of one of my college friends. We ended up going out for drinks later that week and had an absolute...

I'm not entirely sure why, but I've been feeling a lot better since my last post. I think sometimes I need to just write to purge my mind of bad feelings. Suddenly Sheena feels like a distant, cold memory.

I'm yet again confused by the whole dating scene. This cute 20 year old (yes, I know, red flag) messaged me on OKC...

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction: last night I had a shit-ton of fun, therefore today I am dragging a lot of ass.

The start of the night was a little bit frustrating. I decided to just have the concierge service at my building walk Hopkins for me while I was gone, which meant that they needed a copy of my...

So I've been in Texas all week for work. It's been boring as fuck, and also I had to (a) miss hanging out with my friend Bridget who was in town from Chicago for a few days and (b) miss meeting Terra (OKCupid hottie), who was in Omaha Tuesday night for a movie audition and wanted to hang out.

We're finally making...

So things have been looking up lately.

I applied for a job today with Motorola. It's an electrical engineering position in the testing department of their mobile phone division, which is essentially my dream job. It's also located in Libertyville, a suburb of Chicago, so that is also exciting. Denver is the city in this country I'd like to live in the...

So today makes it one month for Sheena and I. There hasn't been a single day of it that we haven't seen each other. It's really amazing how quickly the time has gone by, and it's even more amazing how quickly we've grown so close together. I have a hard time even putting into words just how happy I am...

You'll learn a lot from how you feel when driving away, how you think when you're without her for over a day, and when you get back the sex will be great! ;D No seriously, it'll make seeing her again that much more special.

I don't know if she knows you're on here at all, but you two should come to the get together. It's just Old Chicago. And I'd love to meet the girl that is finally making you SO happy! It's not gonna be very big, and I'd love to see you!

I'm really happy to 'read' that things are finally working themselves out.
She's going to miss you just as much as you miss her.

It's kind of funny - I've always been very ambivalent about marriage. But last night Sheena and I went over to a friend's place for dinner and a movie, and as we were sitting there watching the movie a thought popped into my head out of nowhere: "I'm going to marry this woman." It's probably a silly thought to have, considering...

Funny how sometimes shit just falls into place. I've been meeting new people left and right this week, and then Thursday Sheena got back in touch with me. We ended up sleeping together again and we've been spending time together every day since. It legitimately feels like this is actually going to be a very good relationship. love

So I had a long post typed up about what's happened this last week between me, my ex Dana and her roommate Sheena. But I really can't do it justice in words. Suffice it to say that my life is very complicated right now, and could potentially get even more complicated depending upon how things work out.

A basic rundown is this: last...

Alright, enough of this sadbrains bullshit. I need to start peeling back the layers separating me from the world.

Here are some of my problems:

1) I have a very thick mental filter that prevents me from talking very much. Specifically, it prevents me from talking to strangers. I need to find some middle ground between where I'm at and where my dad is...

I agree with number 4. Ever since I've known you, and I will admit that I was scared to open up and create more chances to learn, you've been a huge mystery. Sometimes I thought you were trying to avoid telling me about yourself because I wasn't as interesting as you or you didn't want to share who you are with me. So I decided not to ask.
