I was recently advised that the best way to get over a girl is to sleep with numerous women. I found this "solution" a bit tempting because I'll be honest what 21 year old guy doesn't wish sex could solve his problems. But I know it won't and I know the cure for one girl isn't another one. I find it troubling that as I continued to think about her words (yes a woman suggested I do this, can you believe that?) I really did try my best to make it all work out in my mind. But morals and ethics are not so easily persuaded, and though I could push and tug and twist all I liked, this piece didn't fit in my puzzle. I do not know what the cure for loneliness is, but I know that "there are worse things than being alone" a quote of my mom's (she usually follows that up with, "I would know, I lived with your father.") Whatever the case, I know that I will not be sleeping around in order to get over one girl or to try to assuage my loneliness, and as I like to say, "Anything worth having is worth waiting for." For me, that includes sex.

Time to think

I'm being lame and not blogging like I promised because I've got some introspection to do. However, I'm giving you the opportunity to go dance, the first two songs here are especially great songs. Sometimes loneliness just means you enjoy some music and envy the heck out of people like this:

Love is to enter into someone else's life and share all the beauty that lies within; but the real beauty comes in returning the favor.---Jesse Madera

Love is sitting in a motorcycle sidecar with a guy who is clearly Cristiano Ronaldo's great grandpa and being soo in love that you don't realize how silly he looks. You just stare with that all too familiar lover's gaze and love with a love that "bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." 1 Cor. 13:7

And then one day:

At least that's how I imagine it.

Song of the day

Bad boy songs are my favorite. I love all the worst music. I love the music that advocates a lifestyle I don't condone. Is that bad? But this one's catchy.

Great music

I apologize for not blogging more. I promise to do a bit more in the coming weeks. I'm studying for the GRE and applying to grad schools while working full time. But writing is therapeutic so I will continue to blog.

Did I say 10 days?

I lied. But to make up for my fabrication, I have a work anecdote for you. The other day I had a customer (in a completely serious and very inquisitive voice) ask me "How many times a year is your Anniversary Sale?" At first I cracked a huge smile and would have laughed far too loud for the present setting, except that the look on her face told me that she needed a serious answer. So I replied, "Our ANNIVERSARY sale only comes once a year." but what I wanted to say was, "Well, we broke up two or three times so we celebrate two aniversaries." People are incredibly obtuse.
