8 days ago was my last post, so I am already behind on what I said I would do. And the only reason I am choosing to make an update is because I remembered that self-promise.

I do have something on my mind at this time:
My boyfriend is a liar. He lied when we first started “talking” about driving. He kept telling me his car was in the shop. I let it go for awhile, until there was a point in which I was driving him, asked him to parrallel park for me, and he suggested just parking farther away. After talking with a friend, it clicked to me that he, 33 years old, didn’t have his lisence. I texted him about it, and the next day he called and he said he didn’t (it got suspended and he never got it back).

Anyway, now I’m suspicious that he has been lying again. He never graduated college, which isn’t a big deal to me if you are honest about it. But he went to a military school, and he told me that he wasn’t allowed to participate in both football and the military at the same time, and he chose football. However, my cousin goes to West Point and he is both in the military and on the football team. I’m starting to think this is another lie, as in an excuse to why he did not go through with the military?


I don’t think I experienced my usual seasonal depression this year. Probably because winter was only one weekend this year. The entire season happened in one weekend. And I enjoyed the blizzard very much and wish it would happen every year! Apparently it’s going up to 50 next week. I never thought I would actually miss winter, but I did/do.
