Hahahaha I was mad.....

For 2 1/2 years I've been taking my old journals and typing them up so I have a solid digital copy, and I just ran into something super funny. It was from a while back (a really long while back), and it surprised me because I usually don't get upset very easy. But I was definitely upset.

A lot of these things don't apply at all anymore, and it's funny how life can change. So here you go, my rules of.... probly dealing with men?

2 - I'm like a piece of gum stuck to the floor - I can't be swept. So DON'T TRY TO SWEEP ME OFF MY FEET.
3 - I'm sick of men trying to be perfect for me. You're not the real deal, so quit pretending.
4 - I can decide if I love you or not. If I don't, I don't. So quit trying to win me over.
5 - I trust my brain and heart. They're a good team. Don't try to mess with them, cause they'll chew you up and spit you out. I will always win, cause I'm done with giving in to feelings.
6 - Hormones are powerful. My brain is better.
7 - If you have done damage, don't try to fix it a few years later. That just shows me you're really stupid. I'll give you... 3 hours. (No promises though.) After that, forget it.
8 - I will be mad at you. You're not innocent. So don't act like you did nothing wrong.

What's up with number 3?! When did I ever have men trying to be perfect for me?! I wrote this at like 3 in the morning, so I was probly not totally conscious. Oh dear...

Hahaha! Cami, I have lists like this in my teenage journal as well. ACTUALLY I wrote a 2 page essay on this in Alaska. It's called "The Declaration of Female Independence" and Sadie and I both signed the bottom. I think it says "Boy are dumb" about 15 times in it. If I can find it I'll email it to you. It's probably on a ZIP drive somewhere. Do you even know what those are? They are SO 5 years ago.

This totally cracked me up. Well said. Maybe it was just 3 am wisdom of a teenager for some boy you'll meet in the future?

Maybe you should send this list to a certain TL!?
