40 days and 40 nights later…

As I vowed in a previous post, http://livelovelearnbreathe.com/2012/02/23/40-days-and-40-nights/, my Lenten promise was to give up all contact with the man known as Cleveland.  To be fair, I did break that pact, but only once.  (Sorry, Jesus.)  And in my defense, the communication that I did have was a very short and innocent text that, at the time, I … Continue reading 40 days and 40 nights later…

40 days and 40 nights

To tell you the truth, I had absolutely no idea that today was the first day of Lent (aka Ash Wednesday) until I heard it mentioned on the radio around 8:15 am CT.  So since then, I've been thinking about what I could give up for Lent.  Hmmmmm... Boys? Nah?  That's something I really don't have … Continue reading 40 days and 40 nights

dead hearts are everywhere. dead hearts are everywhere.

I'm pretty sure I speak for every single girl (and probably boy too) when I say that being single isn't easy- especially during the holidays.  There just something about the falling snow and twinkling lights that elicits PDAs, even without the help of mistletoe.  It's not that us singletons are bitter or jealous, but rather … Continue reading dead hearts are everywhere. dead hearts are everywhere.

so if by the time the bar closes and you feel like falling down, i will carry you home tonight.

My friend, Jenny, and I have been going through our own respective rough patches these last few weeks, so much so that I truly believe that we should book our 1-way ticket to California do we can wash away all of our worries with bottomless glasses of wine.  Ah, California.  The trip of no worries, … Continue reading so if by the time the bar closes and you feel like falling down, i will carry you home tonight.

getting over a guy in 10 days: is it really possible?

In some ways I'm proud of that chapter. I fought for love. I had poison ivy. You know, I lost, but I really fought. (Addison, Private Practice.) I knew I had to get over him so when the cute, movie-inspired idea of getting over a guy in 10 days popped into my mind, I really … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: is it really possible?

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 10

Sunday, November 27, 2011: The 10th day of getting over "Cleveland" Truthfully, I think I said most of what I needed to say in the post written earlier today, though I do need to check in on Day 10 and note that I'm still standing.  Actually I'm feeling the best I have in the last … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 10

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 9

Saturday, November 26, 2011: The 9th day of getting over “Cleveland”. Last week my friend, Katy, told me, "Don't forget to let yourself feel."  While I knew she was right, I've been holding off on doing that because I was doing so well the first few days and feared that I would relapse if I … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 9

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 8

Friday, November 25, 2011: The 8th day of getting over “Cleveland”. On day 8, she unfriended him on Facebook and erased the video she once posted to his wall.  It's better if he doesn't have any recollection of me, she thought.  That's a lie because I know he's never going to forget me, but I … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 8

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 7

 Thursday, November 24, 2011: The 7th day of getting over “Cleveland”. I'm disappointed that I have to write this post, but I made a promise (mostly to myself) that I would track these 10 days during my pact to get over the guy I refer to as "Cleveland".  After doing so well for the first … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 7
