Alrighty.... 7 things about me, here it is:
I talk to myself all the time! And recently have started to answer myself...
My dog is my baby, although he runs the show
I love having a routine, change and I are not the best of friends but we manage to get along
I am a high school dropout and hate that everyone in my classes are 5 years younger than I am. Well only cause now I'll be "old" when I get my PhD
I love to drive but get lost 80% of the time I go out
My favorite things to do with my "me" time are turn up the volume and dance or take a nice long bubble bath
I am a very different person from who I was a year ago and am proud of the changes I have made in my life
Wow that was hard to think of....
Now on with my ramblings!
Over morning coffee with my mother, I came to the conclusion that CB now lives in my cell phone! How you ask? It's honestly very simple. Everything to do about him and I exist around my lovely crackberry. All of his pictures, or the pictures of things we've done together are in there. All the songs we like or that remind me of him are filed away in there. I can talk to him via e-mail, Facebook, or messenger just with a few clicks of a button. Oh and don't let me forget the best part, his real life actual voice comes out of it too!!
Perfect Picture - Just how I picture it lol
I can't picture where he is or really grasp it, nor do I want to. I am proud of him for what he does but it is easier for me to be slightly oblivious to many factors. So from this I have concluded that he now lives in my phone for the time being. I can take him where ever I go, I'm never far from him. He sleeps in bed with me, he's in my pants...pocket (ha ha - couldn't resist. That should be number 8, I laugh at my own corny jokes), in a sense he is always within arms reach. If I'm feeling down, I have the picture of him sticking his tongue out at me, if I'm feeling lonely I have the picture of us together.
Basically all of this is to say I do not know how the girlfriend and wives of earlier times survived deployment with out the amount of technology we have today. Kudos to them! I understand that they knew nothing different but knowing what I know now, in hindsight it just seems that much harder. You had to be home to get a telephone call, there was no instant messaging, no e-mail, no Skype, no nothing! Just letters.Thank you internet!
Well the snow came down last night and its gorgeous! I just feel bad for all the little trick-or-treaters tonight! I swear it was not this cold when I use to go out, mind you that was many years ago but still!
Today is a day filled with rushing to write my paper, carving pumpkins, playing with 4 dogs, and giving out candy! I can't wait. I love the holidays!
