Being with him

Well, it's almost been two months that my boyfriend and I have been together. There is just so many things I like about him, and the more I get to know him, the more I like. Here's some stuff.

-I like it when he's all dressed up, he just looks soooo....wow!
-I like it when he sings, it honestly melts me...he's got such an incredible voice.
-I enjoy holding hands with him, when he touches my hand it just sends currents through me.
-I like how he looks in a tophat, or old fashioned hat....
-I like that he's old fashioned and that he believes that chivalry isnt dead
-I really enjoy how he holds me close to him and I just feel so safe
-I truly appreciate how he does things for me, buys me dinner, says nice things....even though all I wanted from him ever is companionship
-I like the way he kisses me
-I really enjoy falling for him more and more everyday.
*These are just some of a few


So, I'm trying to get out of this part where Im afraid to say the "l-word" I'm terrified to say it, because the last time I did...everything crashed, and I got my heart broken. That's how I entered this relationship was with a broken heart. And I dont want to compare him to my exes....thats just not fair of me....but what am I supposed to do?!It annoys me that I feel like this...I want to be able to get past it. I mean, I dont want to go through life thinking that every guy is going to be just like the others...because they're not, not all of them. It's just finally when I think I might have found the one....he turns around and breaks my heart. I dont want this to happen. I want John to be the one. It want this to be final. I dont want to continue searching, I just want to make the last call on this relationship.

Well, I guess this is it for now...all I know is that when I choose to tell him those 3 words...it'll knock his socks off!!

Peachy Keen

Maybe becuase it's that time of the month, or becuase I'm just in a weird mood, but either way...I needed to write a blog about some things that a special someone should know about.

I grew up as a happy person, I was always content...nothing ever really bothered me. However, there were points in my life that I did try to inflict harm on myself.

I can remember once when I hated the way I looked...I was never small, but never huge....this one time I read in a magazine about girls throwing up...and the food wouldnt have an impact on their bodies. Well, I tried it...nothing happend...I just made myself urge, and stomach sick.

Another time, I can remember, I chipped a part of my tooth...I stopped eating for 3 weeks...it was a perfect opportunity to not eat food...and no one really knew about it. I didnt eat at the dinner table, I told mom that I had eaten earlier...anything to get out of it. Well, it didnt last very long.

Another way I tried to hurt myself was by taking a knife to my wrist...it didn't work...I chickened out. I also tried to take a knife to my throat...I chickend out on that one too.

When I was living in Corner Brook, with my bf at the time. I had to go in for dental surgery. Well, before I knew about that...I had taken on an addiction to pills...just tylenol-extra strength. I took as many as 10 pills at a time...then a couple of hours later, it would be 4-6...then more and then more...I think in a period of two weeks, I went through two large bottles of tylenol extra strength. Then came time for the surgery...for after pain, I was perscribed Atasol 30 with codine. I was to only take one as needed. Well, I took them like candy...they didnt have any effect on me. I can remember at one point a couple of weeks later still popping those tylenol that I overdosed on them. I never went into hospital...but I got really dizzy, nautious, and stomach sick. That didnt stop me. I tried to, but I just couldnt. My bf threated to put me into some sort of rehab unless I got help...I lied to him, and told him that I got help-just so that he wouldnt.

I can remember trying to come off that addiction...when I moved back to Labrador City. My best guy friend Jeff was always there for me...he helped me through that time. However, when I went to bible college (believe it or not) I started back up again...I just couldn't get enough pills inside me. I dont know what happened, but about 6mths into school....I didnt have the desire to take any more pills...and I slowly stopped. But then other things took over. I tried to loose weight again...I would skip all the meals I could, and only when people nearly hauled me to the cafeteria I would get a small salad plate, and eat salad... I can also remember trying to kill myself in college. Many times I sat there with a knife and tried and I mean really tried to either slit my throat or wrist...or just drive it through me. But, again..it didnt work...I just couldnt do it. I can also remember walking down town many times and nearly stepping out in front of a car wanting to take my life.

So, this is what I've been through....No, I've never sought help for it...I've just taken it stride by stride. Is it depression??? I dunno...do I still have it?? I dont know...have no idea.

What is my life like now...I no longer have a need to take pills constantly like I did. And I will only take them if I am near death in pain. I havent had the desire to take my life in almost 5 years...so, I am doing pretty good with that. I do get depressed sometimes, but not as much as I used to. Life is not all roses for me, and I do go through a lot...I cant say that my battle is over....it's far from it...Im still trying to keep my head above water....my faith is all that I have to rely on. I know that God is healing me...he's the only one...

Just some random brain farts

My best friend and past roomate Dawn and I had this thing we would always say..."brain farts" It was when we had sudden bursts of ideas...kinda like farting. Well, here are some random brain farts going on in my head, now passed along onto this.

First off, it's getting quite close to my bf's and mine moving day. I'm really excited, but Im really scared. I'm terrified that I wont find work, even though I know I shouldn't have a problem. I'm thinking I might apply to the Photo Center at WalMart....rather than work in Wal Mart itself. I'm also terrified that I might not be able to afford the rent, plus bills....I could go to the library to use the internet there, not watch tv...only movies, and play ps2, and I wont use the phone...just use a calling card. All these things are going through my mind...plus more....I think a lot, I really do...about everything, and yes it causes stress. It's happened before...I've lost my appetite due to it, I've lost my hair to stress, I've even made myself really really sick by stressing, I'm suprised I dont end up in an instutition. But I guess that's a part of who I am...although I dont really like that part. This is the real thing! I keep telling myself that, and need to give myself a good kick in the pants...but who am I kidding....how on earth am I going to be able to do this!!! See, here I go again...stressing....It's a wonder why I haven't lost all my hair now. Yes, I worry a lot...ask Dawn...she'll tell you....It's an unusal amount for a young woman.

So, our relationship...things are going great. I'm still trying to grasp onto the fact that he's still here. It's just not quite 2 months into our relationship...he hasn't bolted running...but because Im still brokenhearted (which is normal, seeing what I've been through...ask Dawn) It's so hard for me to figure out how someone can love me....and I know why I haven't said those words yet. John told me why...and he read my mind exactly...it's because I'm afraid that as soon as I say them...everything will come crashing down like it did before. Maybe I'm not meant to be with anyone at all...maybe that's why I have such a rotten time with men. And if that's not the reason ...than what is....I just finally want to find the man who God has out there for me...yes GOD....not me!!!

From what my best friend Dawn told me...John has simply wowed her....I trust my best friend with everything....and of course I believe her...however when she tells me that she thinks that this guy could be the one for me....it still runs through my mind...do I deserve him??? He deserves much more than me, much more than I could ever offer. Im still trying every day to get through this.

Another thing that is on my mind...he told me that I was beautiful. The only people who ever told me that were my mom and dad. I've never had anyone say it and mean it...so, forgive me if I dont know how to react...it's completely new to me.

Well, I guess thats enough with the brain farts....i've gotta go to bed......

Faith.



It's something that means so much to me. It's a cornerstone on which my life is structured. God is whom I want my life to be centered around, not material things which the world deems important. The only one I have faith in is God.



Right now, I'm going through a lot, and I have faith that God will bring me through it all. I've been praying and reading my bible everyday. No, I'm not this outrageous bible thumper, but I am trying to have a solid relationship with God, and I dont want anything interfering with that relationship.

One of my greatest desires has been to do mission work, work in orphanages overseas...I am and have been looking into how to do that. I'm sure there are churches out this way that would send people overseas to help--->maybe even in Canada. Without a doubt, I will do something like this in the very near future.

Well, how can I bring forth the truth??The way I act, speak, things I share. I'm not doing a very good job of that right now. Through everything, I haven't been a very good Christian. I mean that in the sense of walking the walk and talking the talk. When other people see me living my life...do they see me living it as a follower of Christ?? or just as someone who's a fake??

Well, it's time that I got serious about my walk with God, and my growth. I cherish my relationship with God more than anything else that this world has to offer. He comes number one in my life, everything else is secondary. And if there are people out there that cannot accept that...then that's just too bad! There are some things that are going to start to change in my life, they may be small and subtle....but they will change, with God's help things will start to work out for the better!!!

This wasn't just ranting, or writing a blog entry...this is what's impacting my life right now, wehre I am.

-travelgirl
Well, I guess that this will probaly be the mother of all blogs. I woke up this morning with such a heavey heart. I dont know where I'm at, what Im doing, where I'm going. It feels like I'm bein trampled on in every which direction, the walls are closing in and I cannot grip onto anything to keep my head above water. So, I'll try my hardest to explain some of the chaos going on inside my head.

The Love word. Well, John told me that he loved me, when he said that it felt like shocks of electricity went through my body. I've never had anyone say that and truly mean it other than my parents and family. I told John, that until I'm ready to say it, I'm not going to say it at all. I dont want it to be taken lightly...I mean some people just throw it around like it's no big deal. Love to me is soooo powerful, and packed full of emotions and feelings, I want to make sure that when I say it to the right person, that they clearly realize what it is Im saying.

Another thing is this whole apartment idea. I've still got everyone telling me that I've moved way to fast without thinking, that I need to slow down and hold off. I think that I'm going to try it out. The worst that could happen is if John and I are just not compatible. It would be so hard living with someone tht you have such strong feelings for ....and now are not together...so, looking to the positive, I hope it does work out. It is however, still in the back of my mind.

On top of the whole apartment idea as well. I'm terrified that I wont be able to make rent. Sure, 450.00 or so...sounds good now...but what am I supposed to do if I cant afford it?????? I have to pay half....that's part of the deal. What's the point if I'm unable to contribute my 1/2. This idea is really aggrivating me.

Another thing...well, my mom is cured from cancer...not long though...about 3 years. But, everytime she has her checkup it makes my world come to a complete stop. I am so fearful that one of her next appointments...she'll hear the words "the cancer has returned" IT's terrifying for me, and for my mom. I know she beat it once, and could do it again. I know that if it were to happen again, I would leave everything to go and be with her...that's just how I am. I took complete care of her once, and I would do it again in less than a heartbeat.

These are just a couple of the things that are on my mind...theres tons more. But there is a thunderstorm happening outside...so, I'll have to write more later.

Moving at the Speed of Light

So many things going through my head. I feel so close to saying those 3 small words that mean so much, but yet I feel so far away. I want to just dive in and say them, but I have to make sure that I mean them before I say them. Trust me, I have such strong feelings for John, but before I say "I love you" I just have to make sure. I'm so afraid of my heart getting broken again, and I'm so afraid to take the "lovers leap" because of it. I want this to be final...and I think and hope it could be...I'm just so afraid of loosing him. I know I talk continuously about past relationships, but that's all that I know. I'm so lucky for having found him that I just want it to remain.,..and I'm so just terrified that it's all going to crumble in front of me like it usually does. The fact that someone might like me...well, it's overwhelming....never thought anyone could like me again....let alone love. But John...he's just awesome...that's all I can say, and that's where I'll leave this.

Canada Day

Well, Happy Birthday Canada!!!

This morning I went for a bike ride with my mom #2. We did about 15km...it was a nice trip!! Then I went to work....that was something after the bike ride. This afternoon wasn't too bad....it was quite busy...but not as bad as yesterday. They had me covering self checkouts for a bit, then put me on clean up, then stuck me on cash....then finally I went back on Self Checkouts. Later on, it was immensely dead....no, really. After work, my house mom picked me up, and we went to see the fireworks....they were nice, and better than some of the ones that I'm used to. Plus the band arrogant worms was playing, and they did play this one saskatchewan (sp?) song that John has downloaded...it was cool...nice ending to a long day at work! I guess this is it for now...maybe I'll post something else....who knows.

One Month

It's official, John and I have survived one month together. YAY!! We did it! He was so sweet, and shy when he asked "Would you like to be my girlfriend?" It was cute :o) So, this is the first month of hopefully many more to come. YAY Babe!! We did it!!
