  • I saw this right after my mom sent me a photo of two friends from home who both got married this week. :'''') Perfect timing and a good reminder!

Heck, I live with my parents, don't have a job rn (heath issues) and have never dated. And Im 20. I have to remind myself to not compare myself to all the other people my age

    I have two categories of friends right now: the ones who are getting married and the ones who are going to grad school, and also some doing both, and I'm just chilling with my full-time job, which I adore. but. sometimes it's hard to feel like you can be happy when everyone around you is doing something different!

    I'm still really grateful for everything I've been able to accomplish and all of my experiences so far. <3

    LadyMysterio <33 I have childhood friends who are getting married. Its weird for sure!

    EllieMae So relatable. My social circle is made up of 1) married friends (some with children) or 2) friends complaining about wanting to get married/about to get married T-T (And some of the married ones are younger than ME)

  • Finding out lead singer of fav band is performing in town one hour away: :O
    Realizing it's a Saturday so you can actually go: :OOO !!!
    Planning entire life around concert happening months from now: >:3
    Realizing it's actually a part of a wine event: :/
    Realizing that because it's part of a wine event, tickets include tastings and are actually too expensive: :'(
    Return to life as normal: :|

    EllieMae Dang why can’t it be a grape juice and soda event >:(

    Thank you so much for your wonderfully detailed review on my short story! It was all written to be cheesy and silly and not make a lot of sense, but hearing your amazing interpretations really helps!!! Thank you, friend <3333

    Que Aw, no problem, friend! I figured it was mostly meant to be cheesy but I did still want to treat it seriously. :) I thought it was very cute!

  • Oui, je parle un peu français. J'apprends le français au lycée, donc mon français est mauvais et je ne parle pas couramment.

    Que Salut avian! Et bravo! Le français est vraiment une langue difficile. Je l'ai étudié à l'université et en France, et j'adore toujours l'opportunité d'en parler (ou écrire) un peu! Merci pour le message. c:
