How old were you when

How old were you when you first... answer these questions HONESTLY

FELL IN LOVE --- 13ish? I thought I was in loved with Mike Downes. First love that returned the feeling was Mike Knapp when I was 15

GOT TATTOOD/PIERCED --- my parent peirced my ears when I was 6 months old, but the first peircing I remember was in 6th grade when I got a 2nd set of holes in my ears. 1st tat was 22nd birthday (playboy bunny with Toby - we were a little tipsy when we made that decision)

LOST SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU --- Never lost anyone I was really close to

DRANK ALCOHOL --- 12? 13? I don't remember exactly but it was with my alcoholic real mother. It was a wine cooler and it made my back hurt REALLY bad. weird

SMOKED WEED ---22 with Steve Nicholas


GOT KISSED --- I think I was about 14 when Jen's cousin Chris kissed me but my first tongue action was like a year later with Kenny Sigler in the FREEZING cold in my driveway

GOT STUNG BY A BEE --- Sometime after 7 cuz I remember stepping on one at the house my parents still live in and we moved there when I was 7

WENT TO THE HOSPITAL--- only been to the hospital to visit people

GOT YOUR HEART BROKEN ---16 when Mike Knapp dumped my ass

LOST A PET --- 10? I had a hamster named Boogie he died of some crazy eye infection


DROVE A CAR --- 9 maybe? My grandpa used to let me drive out in the middle of nowhere on the eastern shore but that was only steering, he did the pedal work. I was 15 when I crashed Daya's grandmothers car (with a little help from her older brother - I had everything under control, he's the one that freaked out and stepped on the gas)

BROKE A BONE --- havn't done that yet

GOT JUMPED --- not yet and hopefully never

PLAYED A VIDEO GAME ---Nintelevision! Burger Time, baby. 6? 7?

GOT CHEATED ON ---not really sure, possible Zack when I was 22. If not then, I'm pretty sure David was a cheating ass so 24 and/or 25

GOT A BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND ---this red headed kid named Kris? in 7th grade

RODE THE CITY BUS BY MYSELF ---14...snuck off with my bff Jen to see cute boys we were crushing on - she got punished for that and I didn't, that's so backwards


WENT TO A CONCERT---7 or 8 - Dirty Dancing concert in OC with Fawn and her Mom

MET SOMEONE FAMOUS ---- 21, Jamie O'Neil at WMZQ Fest and then a month later Jessica Andrews in the Hilton lobby in Nashville

Get off your butt and do something

Someone recently told me that I need to get off my butt and do something and it really pissed me off. First, If I want to sit at home and do nothing, its none of anyone's business. I'm not hurting anyone by sitting in my room watching movies or checking on myspace. Second, the person that said this to me doesn't do much of anything either so they really had no room to talk. Third, when this person said this to me they had no idea what I did or did not do all weekend. Just becuase I was home at the time this was said to me does not mean I was at home all weekend. (For this person's info if they should happen to read this, I got my oil changed, went to Target and watched the race at Bailey's on Saturday)

The point behind all this is that I hate when people try to tell me what I should or should not be doing. It's my life, leave me alone. I don't go around telling people, "you go out too much, you should stay home more" or "you're always home go out and do something" and I don't appreciate when people do that to me. If I was doing something bothersome I could understand someone telling me I'm doing something that bothers, upsets, pisses them off, whatever. But how is me staying at home on a Sunday napping, doing laundry, doing dishes and watching movies effecting anyone?

I almost got scammed!

For all you paypal users our there, beware of emails that look like this:

I clicked on the Dispute Transaction link and it took me to what looked like the paypal login screen. So I logged in and a transaction dispute form came up and I started entering my name and adress, etc. Then it asked for my credit info and I thought, "What the hell? Paypal already has my cc info, why are they asking me this?" Then I looked at the url and this is what it said:
If it were for real it would say http://www.paypal.com.

I stopped filling out the form and closed the window immediately and went to the REAL paypal and logged in and forwarded the email to them and told them not to allow any charges to my account. Then I changed my paypal password so those bastards can't get in. I think I might deleted my paypal account and then cancel my cards and get new ones. What if they already went in and got my card numbers? Ahh, I think I might freak out.

Anyway, I just wanted to let make everyone aware of this so you don't get scammed. DO NOT click the link and more importantly do NOT enter your paypal logon info.

The Ex Files

Let's talk about my ex. That should be fun, right? (hope everyone heard the sarcasm in that statement, 'cuz believe me, it's THICK). I recently found some friends of my ex on myspace and said hello. I got to talking to one of them and he told me that my ex cheated on me, a lot. He didn't really give me any concrete info like with who, for how long or where. I always thought he cheated but he always denied it. I even sent him a text yesterday asking him again and he still denies it. I figure there's no need to lie about anymore, we've been broken up since early September, but either 1 - I'm wrong and his friend is just messing with me, or 2 - that's just what liars and cheaters do, they keep up the lies forever. Either way, there was so such wrong with our relationship that cheating really doesn't matter. He's an alcoholic, he knows it and he doesn't care. I don't need that. My birth mother is an alcoholic. I'm so over people and their pathetic addictions. Regardless of whether the cheating business is true or not, for some reason it seems to have helped me realize that it's time I moved on, got back in the dating game. I've been really lazy about dating becuase I just don't care but I think mabe I do care. I wanna date, meet new people, have someone to spend time with. It's been a long time since I had any male affection, like a year before my relationship ended. It would be nice to have someone to pay a little attention to me, maybe tell me he thinks I'm pretty. All that bullshit that seems so stupid but you realize how important it is once you're in a relationship with someone that could care less about you. There are things that make be believe this friend and things that make me think he's a liar but whatever the truth is I feel very relieved. Almost an "I've been set free" kind of feeling. Maybe I waS subconsciously holding onto the idea that we might get back together, who knows. I know I don't. Whatever it is, I think I'm ok. Finally. It' s been a long 7 1/2 months.
