I've always been good at writing and one of my wishes in life is to publish a book one day. The thing I'm not good at, however, is making up stories. Everything I come up with isn't original. Well, there's this one story I have. I made it up as a kid, and whenever I had time to kill (which, given that I have no siblings, happened often) I thought about the story and kept adding to it. I did this for years, until I was a teenager, sometimes even still now that I'm an adult. I created a huge universe that way, the story is original, I've never seen something like it anywhere, but it has elements from a lot of very popular genres and stories, so it would probably be liked by enough people to make it worth writing down. But this wouldn't be a confession if there wasn't a problem with it, so here it is... some elements of the story aren't suitable for an audience. Partly because it simply doesn't make any sense for anyone but me - and I'm not talking about a few plot developments here, I'm talking about something that's the base for the whole story and that I only kept in the story over the years because in my head it doesn't matter if it makes no sense. And partly it's very personal stuff that I'd never want anyone to associate with me (let's just say a lot of people would recognise themselves in the story in a way that wouldn't be beneficial for anyone). The solution for this problem sounds simple; just change the story! And yes, I could. But I don't want to. It's probably a stupid nostalgic thing, but ripping out this huge plot base, and even taking out only a few minor details here and there, feels like ripping the head off your favourite teddy bear or seeing a horrible movie adaptation of your favourite book. You know that they had to change some bits for the movie and you know that those who never read the book love the movie, but it is so WRONG. To put it in a nutshell, I can either not write the book and live my life knowing that I possibly wasted my only chance to fulfil a dream, or I write it and feel like I sold my soul to the devil to fulfil said dream. Which is worse?
I'm so happy that I get GPA above 3.5 . I hope I can improve it soon. Aamiin. Wish me luck!

My boyfriend and I were in a long distance relationship from July - December 2016. When I saw him at Thanksgiving, he said I looked even more beautiful than before. He noticed I put on some weight and was happy about it. He's a big guy and said I was so petite before, he thought he'd crush me. That really made me happy. Especially since I just weighed myself and realized how much heavier I really was. But now, I don't want to be so heavy. According to my BMI I'm "very obese". Diabetes also runs on both sides of my family. I've started working out at home. I either work out before my boyfriend wakes up or after he goes to bed. I'm on day 4 of my 30 day challenge, but I haven't told my boyfriend yet. The goal isn't really to get skinny. I just want to get healthier. I want to be able to do a situp and get all the way up. If I go to a doctor and get asked if I exercise, I want to tell the truth without embarrassment. If I lose some weight in my belly area, that'll be a nice bonus.

Kia is the worst car in the history of cars. Possibly ever. I have spent thousands of dollars on this car last year. The mechanic gave up. Taking it to the dealer. What the hell kills 3 fuel pumps in a single year? Is my parking spot built over an ancient Indian burial ground? Wtf?
had to act like a complete jackass to get my ex to leave me alone. long story short she blocked me and I'm happy and content now. not proud of how I had to act but what's done is done.
My ex sent me a YouTube link to a song called "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" and he followed it with a text saying "overdub yourself". The song is a dude singing about wanting to try again and begging his partner not to leave him. I think my ex thinks that's how I feel about him. So in response, I sent him a YouTube link to Taylor Swift's "White Horse", which is her saying she waited so long to be appreciated by her partner, but now that he finally sees what he's lost, it's too late for him and his white horse to come around, because the damage has already been done. Maybe my ex will finally catch my drift.
It's very easy to get one-itis as a teenager. It's easy to say, "I'd die for you." When you have nothing to live for yet. I stumbled on the Facebook of my high school crush. She's pretty lame now. She has massive student debt from a useless photography degree. She spams anti-vaxx stuff all over her facebook, and she named her kid after a really lame discount romance novel author. 10 years is a very long time in life.
