I needed a good way to distance myself from this person who kept letting me down and really hurting me.
No matter what I tried I always still thought highly of them and I needed a way to let go-
So I put their name in bright magenta comic-sans on my desktop; so now every time I hear their name I remember how much of a drag they are.
I really freaking miss Donutdude.
I wish we knew what made him leave.
It’s so weird when you talk to a person on the regular;
and suddenly they vanish.
Here is my digital photography class. It is really unusual how well we all bonded, typically in my college courses people split off into little groups of a few people, or don’t speak at all. But everyone in this class got along really well- and we all work really cohesively. It’s so strange, but great.
The guy in the front is our professor; He likes to be called Pops. He pretty much cares more about his students than any professor I’ve ever met. He was diagnosed with cancer last month and his treatments meant he had to give up his classes, but he still e-mailed us regularly visited us the last two days of class.
Sometimes it’s really hard to choose between being honest with a friend, and being polite to avoid stepping on toes. Especially when the truth is something they won’t want to hear
In the end, I choose honesty since I figure “they can handle hearing this from a person they know really cares about them”… and they call me a cunt.
To a dear friend who will never read this anyway,
You’re talented, motivated, intelligent and incredibly eloquent. You can carry a conversation on for hours, and hold your ground in any argument with grace.
So when you text message people: why, dear god why?,
Do you write “U” instead of “You” ?! Please just add the Y and the O.
I respect you so much, but I want to punch you sometimes.
Always yours -with an y and an o-, Katelynn
Every once in a while a person comes along in life and their vitality and attitude is so amazing that it’s like getting punched in the face with inspiration, and they just make you want to try harder and be better. As a person who is naturally shy and full of self-doubt; that push is something I really appreciate. I hope I can be that for somebody some day and I hope the people who have done it for me know how much I look up to them.
