General Off-Topic Board / Thanking Head Machine.
« on: June 17, 2004, 08:04:40 PM »
I want to make a topic thread for Headmachine.

I want to thank Headmachine for his website entry on 5.1.04.
(http://www.livejournal.com/users/headmachine/)

I randomly clicked over to your website and when I read this, I started sobbing at work here at my desk, where I have tried all day to keep my tears inside.

Why?  Because the author of this could be him.  The recipient could be me.  I thought all along there was something wrong with me that I couldn't make this work.  I love him so much and yet it just won't work.  IT JUST WON'T.

And I am so frustrated and sad and I'm pouring my heart out here on LSD because I can't stop crying and I can't just be OK with everything and I can't just look ahead and be excited for the future and I can't just believe things are for the best and I can't just think that he's a jerk and I am perfect and I can't know deep down that someday someone else will make me laugh just as much and make me cry less and I can't just let go of him in my heart where this hurts the most.

I will never understand the mystery of loving someone.  I will never understand why hearing this song that's on right now can drive me to tears.  I can never understand how where there is no blood there is such pain.  I can never understand how time heals everything and yet the hours are not helping.

I just don't get it.  And I'm so f-ing sad I don't know what to do with myself.

So thank you, headmachine, thank you for that because I needed to know that someone else knew what it felt like to be in this situation.  I needed someone to articulate it for me.  I needed to know that as alone as I feel right now, others have gotten through it and while it is far from what's "for the best", it's not the worst thing.  The worst thing today.  Tomorrow.  Probably  next week ... but not forever.

General Off-Topic Board / Help Me Find a New Screen Name!

Hi Everyone --

For fans, friends and supporters of the Poster Formerly Known as Shermy's Girl ... I am temporarily and currently known as "IamMyOwnGirl".

I find that highly unimaginative, so lets get some suggestions going here...

General Off-Topic Board / Racist Parents and Being Defended!
« on: June 16, 2004, 01:08:55 PM »
Ok -- so here's the story.

I went to Vegas w/ Shermy's parents and him.  Things were pretty good, though if you are a regular to this thread, you know that Shermy and I are full o' drama with ex girlfriends and other things.

Here's a new story for you guys and I appreciate feedback.

Let me preface this story by telling you all (in case you don't know) I am half Japanese, my mother is a Japanese citizen who lives in Japan. 

Things in Vegas went well... we had a good time and his parents were very generous to me and took me on a nice trip. Yes, we had our moments both annoying (but not so bad) and very good.

On the way home from the airport yesterday, we were talking about Kobe beef and how good it is.  I explained why it is so good and how it is unique to Japan.  His father then went on to say "Japan has nothing, no oil, nothing".  I said, "Actually, while their main natural resource is the fishing industry, what is interesting is that for an island nation with limited natural resources, they continue to be an economic force.  In fact, they are one of the only island nations that is self-sustaining" (thank you, 9th grade social studies).

His reply to this was that Japanese people are not creative and do not make anything on their own, just take existing ideas and build on them and so ... "Japanese people are not smart"  and "not nice" (the nice comment, apropos of nothing).

Now, I can take a racist slam.  Really, I can.  I don't like it and I think it is stupid, but ... I can take it.  My concern was that my b.f. didn't say anything.

When I confronted him, he basically said "Everyone is entitled to their opinion and you just shouldn't listen to it" and that I overreact about everything.  This led to a big argument and well ... hence the unsureness of the situation.

Am I overreacting?  Obviously you all don't know that there have been many problems leading up to this particular issue, but on this issue alone, am I overreacting?

I just heard that the judge is going to read the vic's TEXT MESSAGES line for line in the Kobe case.  Man ... I hope no one ever reads MY texts in open court.  Talk about evidence implicating baaaad behavior.  :P
