Day 05 – Your definition of love, in great detail

I think there’s many definitions of love across many spectrums.

There’s family love, for those that have families, which to me is a support system, emotionally and financially (; I call my dad to talk and shoot the breeze, I call my mom to ask for money, and I check in with my grandma to see how she’s doing. We never say “i love you” to each other.. well my dad says it to me, my mom and grandma write it in cards, or when I go to visit and I leave and they’re crying… I know i’ve only said it once to my dad and that was after pressure from my first boyfriend to say it.

Friend love, that’s a whole nothing thing. I love my friends for they each have their own qualities that have drawn me to them and why we get along. You can talk to them when you cant talk to others, they’re available for venting and support and another point of view. When you break up with a bf they’re on your side listening to you cry and saying what an ass he was… They all have their redeeming qualities and their annoying ones… but you take what you can get thats why I like to have a variety of friends.

I’ve all but given up on relationship type of love.. I’ve been burned too many times and I really don’t foresee it in my immediate future. Bob didn’t break my heart we just drifted apart, it was a first love kinda thing and I learned a lot from it. Marc, he broke my heart repeatedly for over 4 years. That was probably the worst. Can’t say I ever loved ATC but I did care a lot about him. I just have no desire to really put myself out there anymore just to get hurt again, a big part of why its hard for guys to “figure me out”, because I don’t like to open up too much.

Pet love i think is the most important. Your pets give you unconditional undying love. They’re always there for you no matter what, they don’t care how bad a day you’ve had or who’s hurt your feelings, they will comfort you and just be there. Sometimes thats all you need. The only time your heart is broken by them is when its their time to go. And that is beyond anyones control, luckily you have all the memories with them, good times, pictures, stories etc. No one can ever take the place of a pet in your heart.

The Dirty Little Secret

Took this test on OKCupid today ….. its pretty much dead on. .

Innocent but fundamentally sexual, like the word “finger”.
You are the Dirty Little Secret.

Few women have the confidence for sex mastery, and among nice girls, like you, it’s almost unheard of. So congratulations. You’ve had plenty of adventures, but you’ve remained a kind, thoughtful person. Your friends appreciate your exploits. They even live vicariously through you.

You seek pleasure, but you’re not irresponsible. You are organized and cautious, and you choose your lovers wisely. One, you don’t like dirtbags. And two, you like to maintain control. Or at least lose it selectively. You might notice that older men single you out. They have an eye for your sensual nature. Take it as a compliment.

You enjoy making people happy, and it’s inevitable that many s will fall harder for you than you for them. You’re not completely comfortable in a serious, long-term relationship right now. Our guess is that the key to extended happiness will be finding a responsible, but kinky, mate.

Day 03 – Your parents, in great detail

Gotta restart this over here on WP so here we gooooooooooooo

Lets see lets see.
I dunno how much detail I got on these two LoL..

Mom…

  • She sends me money, shes a lot of help in that department
  • Always repeats the same thing ie. every time i move “now remember to forward your mail”
  • She got married when I was in 8th grade, I did not like him much, but we’re better now, I can stand to be in the same room with him.
  • She’s the oldest of 3, but her youngest brother my uncle Chris unfortunately took his own life years ago.
  • I believe she’s only ever lived in Nevada and California.
  • Always been an animal lover
  • Currently has 2 cats, spooky and… i forget the others name.. and a bird
  • (and to my chagrin a plant lover, i hate plants)
  • Was studying archeology? I think in college.. but dropped out when she met my dad (so i heard).
  • Which explains why she probably wasnt tooooooooo horribly mad when I dropped out of college…
  • There was a point in time when I was very upset with her, my dad had told me that when I was little, she’d gone off to live with some guys from her work and left me with the rest of the family. Who does that? I eventually got over it.
  • She got her first tattoo a few years ago w/ the girls in her office, they do everything together.
  • She loves anything vampire related, yes, twilight, supernatural, etc
  • Her favorite movie i’m sure is LadyHawk. I never really understood it.
  • I call her a few times a week, usually at work just to bug her, but she likes it.
  • Everytime I go home to visit and then leave, she cries.
  • Hobbies include: arts & crafts, sewing, crocheting, camping, gardening.

Dad…

  • Is a Vietnam Veteran
  • Is also an animal lover
  • Oldest of 4 children
  • As long as I’ve known him he’s lived in Burbank, CA
  • Currently taking care of my grandma
  • Used to be a courier in l.a., delivered to movie studios, stars’ homes, businesses etc etc
  • He occasionally took me on his deliveries, I’ve been to Kevin Costners house as well as Danny Devito and I’m sure others that I dont remember because I was too little, OH! i met the creaters of the simpsons and got an autographed picture.. who knows where that ever ended up.
  • Loves photographs. His apt is covered in pictures/frames, mostly of me as a child (=
  • He used to drive a baby blue vw bug, it was cute.
  • Every morning he’d drop me and Anabelle (my bff) off at school. He used to call her brother “tooty fruity” since his nick name was tuti LoL
  • I’m sure he has NO idea how to use a computer
  • I try to call him at least once a week
  • He used to drive up to NV to see me on birthdays or holidays if I didnt go down to l.a.
  • He occasionally would bring me jars, or funky containers filled with change that he’d saved up since the last time he’d seen me… and then i’d have to roll/count it all myself, but i’m sure it helped in the learning process!
  • He currently has a dog, Mikey, and quite a few cats, and maybe some birds.. not sure how many he’s up to.. and of course a lil lap dog for my grandma.
  • Used to ride a harley back in the day
  • Has told me that me being born got him off drugs.. well aside from weed, that’ll never happen esp now that he has a license for it.
  • Oh and he had a son before me… i met him very very long ago, he stayed with my dad for a minute but he was a lazy bastard so he booted him. They weren’t close like we are.
  • And he looks like a cross btwn Santa Clause and Jerry Garcia, he was mistaken quite a few times for Jerry back in the day.
  • Which reminds me, I need to call him soon.

I think that’s about enough of those two, lets end with some Pics (=

Bob and Me

Day 2 – Your first love, in great detail

Let's see…
I'll start with a picture

This was our Senior Prom Picture. How cute were we? Yes I made him get a white Tux to go better with my dress.. . hahaha.

Anyways lets start from the beginning shall we!!

When I was around 12 or 13 I baby sat for some friends of my aunt. They lived across from Bob, otherwise known as Bobby, or BobbyDean. The kids always joked "you and bobby should go out heheheheeh" at that point I was like uh nooo thanks he's too nerdy for me…

Fast forward to age 17, we both started working at Schlotzky's Deli when it opened the summer before our Senior Year. He wasnt someone I hung out with socially at school, I barely knew him really… but over the summer months, we flirted a LOT at work, and at night talked on AIM and on the phone of course… texting wasnt that big back then.. (1999).

Our first "date" was going to the movies with his 2 best friends to see… omg i cant remember.. it was a comedy though.. hmm.. anyways I'm not sure if that was the same night or a different one, but we all ended up at my house cuz the 'rents were gone and we ordered pizza… so we were watching probably Base-ketball the movie, how can i remember that? and they were sitting on the couches, and me, being stupid, went and sat in the recliner…… BY MYSELF.. apparently he gave his friends a look like WTF?? yea i'm dumb…

We eventually started "dating" I wanna say.. august 15? 21st? around then… yeah we even celebrated the "monthly" anniversaries LoL… he gave me a sterling silver heart necklace once, and a ruby heart ring, and even a teeny tiny diamond ring …

Oh and I cant forget, he was my first, uh… everything, kiss, sex,.. everything. Our first time was in a park in Jenny's neighborhood, we just couldnt get any privacy anywhere else! We also did it in our cars a few times hahaha and when we'd ditch school and go home as well…

He taught me more than I already knew about nintendo… and he came to all my dance team performances and rooted me on. After high school, we got an apartment together, a shitty apartment with shag carpet, and a freezer that didnt really freeze anything, it actually said on the door, that it would not keep things frozen… we had our ups and downs, i hated his pot smoking, he one time even got caught driving with some in the car and arrested…

We both loved Nsync and BSB LOL i know it's hilarious.. We saw Nsync in Reno, drove to Vegas and saw them again, (we had awesome seats) and drove to San Jose to see them, and stayed with his Uncle for the weekend. We also took spring break to Burbank to see my family and Arizona as well. Wow, we sure did a lot!

He cheated on me with a "friend" of mine, and dance team mate, i never understood why, I think it was moreso her, than him.. she was a scandalous bitch who peed her pants… literally… i'm not joking.. she has an uncontrollable bladder or something.. and yes I told people about it.

When I found out about the cheating, my best friend Jenny confronted the whore in the middle of the school one morning before classes, I walked in her giving her a tongue lashing. It was awesome. That's what best friends are for ♥

His dad gave me the name "SaraBelle" which i loved. His dad is awesome.

Prior to me moving to Colorado we moved into his Mom's townhouse in an effort for me to save money before coming here, I dont think we paid her  much, if any rent.. I cant quite remember…

We did quite a bit of ecstasy together, that was good times LoL from what I can remember, we have lots of pics though hahaha. . .

The day I left for Colorado was a sad one, we both cried a lot and he stood in the street as I drove away in the U-Haul. We stayed together for hmm… 8 months or 10 maybe after I moved, he even came out to visit me once, I tried to convince him to move out here, but he's not a big city kinda guy. We broke up, I thought mutually, but when he called the next day to verify we were really apart, I guess I did the breaking up…

We're still friends on FB today, and a few times when I've gone home to NV we've hung out … he's dating a girl, who has some similarities to me.. and looks like they've been together about 5 years. She must not mind his small package

Our relationship lasted about 3 1/2 years.. not too bad for a first relationship right?

That's the story of Me and BobbyDean

Day 1 – Me

Day 1 

Hi, I'm Sara, if you didn't already know (=

I was born in California and lived there up through 2nd grade.
My mom then moved us to Nevada, where she was born and raised, from what I've told it was to get away from the big city and dangerous crimes in Los Angeles. *shrugs* I never noticed it but I was little, what did I know. I remember the night we left Burbank it was raining lots of thunder and lightning, my Dad drove the u-haul and i rode with him, and my mom drove her vw bug. My dad only drove us there and then went back to Burbank. This was all my mom's decision. Oh, and they were never married, pretty sure they were together long enough to date, conceive me, move to l.a. and then decide they werent right for each other. We lived next door literally in 2 diff apt complexes.

Every year I went back for Spring Break, Summer Vacation, and occasionally for Christmas. Sometimes my dad would drive up to NV and pick me up an take me back and sometimes I would fly. I've been flying alone mostly on Southwest since the 3rd grade. I'm a pro at air travel.

We lived with my Grandparents in NV up until 8th grade when my mom got married. I never thought it was weird or that we should have our own house or anything like that. Probably because I was always surrounded by family no matter which state I was in.

I never missed out on anything as a child, every summer I took swimming lessons and tennis lessons, played softball and roller hockey. Being an only child I pretty much did what I wanted and got what I wanted. Spoiled yes, Brat, No.

I've always had pets growing up, and I continue to have them today, and always will, Its in my blood. My whole family consists of animal lovers.

These two phrases I've discovered this week explain me a lot:

I don't have an attitude, this is just my personality….. Take it or leave it.

A failure to plan on your behalf does not constitute an emergency on my behalf

People call me a bitch, which to me is a compliment.
You have to KNOW me, to GET me.
I've lost most compassion for the human race.
If you get hurt, I will inevitably laugh at first, and then help you out.

I like to have plans, a schedule, some kind of time line.
I like to be spontaneous, but in an orderly manner…

I'm lazy and can be unorganized at times, I just dont like cleaning up after myself ASAP, it can always wait till later. I'm a night owl so around 9 or 10pm is when I get my burst of energy and can be productive and feel the need to clean, however that is usually my bedtime as well since I'm an avid fan of sleep and can never get enough.

Waking me up/disturbing my sleep up is probably one of the worst offenses you could bring upon yourself. Via text, phone call, or coming into my room and interrupting this glorious time.

Flaky people get on my nerves and those who change their minds or plans at the last moment, it drives me crazy.
I do my research on things I don't know a lot about, or when I'm getting into a new situation. I like to be prepared and informed. I see nothing wrong with this.

Drinking is a favorite past time of mine, but it is not a problem. I have dabbled in drugs before, but no longer, they're too expensive and make me feel like poo the day after, not worth it anymore.

Football, hockey and baseball are all sports I enjoy to watch. YES ENJOY. On tv or at the stadium. If I could find a guy who enjoyed them as much as me, I'd be set LoL.

I'm not HORRIBLE with money, I just didn't take too much responsibility in the past with credit and what not and it's coming back to bite me in the ass now. You live and learn right.

Should be no surprise to most of you I love New Kids On The Block, although I feel alone in this with my circle of friends, I know there's millions of other fans out there in the world that love them just as much and even more than I do. So in that, I am not alone, and as Joey's song says "5 brothers and a million sisters".

I will sometimes give people a 2nd or even 3rd chance, but that's far and few between at this point in my life. Cross me once and we're pretty much done. I don't have the time or patience for forgiveness.

Being single is okay with me, for now, at this point. Sure I miss romantical things, but i don't feel empty without them. Most relationships are a let down in the end anyways and I want to be the only reason that I am unhappy, not because of someone else.. does that make sense? I don't want to rely on someone ELSE for my happiness lets put it that way. Too many of my friends "put the penis on a pedestal" as they say… (or as I say).

I'm only 28, there's a whole lot more life for me to live so up until now, this is me in a nutshell…. a really big, extravagant nutshell…
