I hadn’t been out of school long when I decided to fall for one of my best friends. Thing is, she and I hadn’t really been great friends for very long. To be honest, she kind of got on my nerves. But isn’t that always how it is? No? Sometimes, though… You’ve gotta give me … Continue reading Lesson

Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends

I don't want to say I'm super organized when it comes to my plan for blog posts, even though it might seem that way to some. Especially when I reveal what I'm about to reveal.

Question of the Week #266

If you knew it would completely estrange you from your friends and family, would you follow your heart and marry a person you loved? Yes. I mean... if friends and family are rightly warning me that the person I love is also secretly a super-villain bent on global destruction and/or domination, I would hope I … Continue reading Question of the Week #266

Question of the Week #202

Would you be willing to commit perjury for a close friend? For example, might you testify that he was driving carefully when he hit a pedestrian even though he had been joking around and not paying attention? No. And I'm sure that would lose me some friendships if I were put into that position. I'm … Continue reading Question of the Week #202
