I’ve not been myself as of late. I’m just tired of all the shit that’s been tossed in my lap. I want to be me again. I want to be happy. How fucking hard is that?

This hits me so close.
Reading this, my heart sunk into the pits of my stomach….
Jenna! I totally got your last message but totally forgot to respond to it! I am so thankful you got a hold of me! I was wondering what the hell happened to you, girl. I’ve been trying my best to keep up with you on Facebook and things seem to be going well for you which I am ridiculously happy to hear. How’s everything else going? Ah! So happy to have you back!
Things between my boyfriend and I haven’t been the best lately. As of Monday we have been dating for 3 weeks. We’ve gotten in numerous fights and arguments and we can’t seem to hold a decent conversation with each other. Frankly, I don’t even think he’s remotely attracted to me since we haven’t been intimate or even cuddly with each other in weeks. Now, I know what you’re all thinking. “Why date him, Katy? Sounds like you’ve got nothing in common.” In some odd way, we do even though we come from very different life backgrounds. Something deep inside me wants us to work out and is drawing me closer and closer to him but I can’t go on with practically “being friends that sort of live together but don’t reap the benefits of being in a romantic relationship with each other.” Yes, we’ve attempted to talk about it but it gets us nowhere. We stay stagnate and just start sinking. This seems crazy, I know but please, someone out there help me, offer me advice, comfort me, something. I’m going to lose my mind soon enough…

This is gorgeous
Soooooo pretty!!!! Ugh. I love being a theatre junkie.
Just because you’re mad at someone doesn’t mean you stop loving them.
Literally, my relationship right now.
