In 2006, I was:

- still driving my Probe :(

- hadn't been in a relationship for nearly a year

- raising my puppy Cheyenne (who was 9 mths old in November of that year)

- at Valencia beginning my A.A. degree

- not even vaguely politically involved

- turning 21 that year

- still adjusting from my former life in the military

- I cut my hair to within 3 inches of my scalp o.o

- I was still REALLY crazy :P


May 2006 I met a serious, quiet guy at a random birthday party. Cute, but mean ;) and annoyed by everything I did.

May-November 2006 Serious guy messages me sporadically on AIM, I find out he used to be an engineering major. Like my dad...and my brothers...and my cousin....and every guy I seem to know.... ;)

Nov. 13, 2006 I have a SERIOUSLY wicked exam the next day in Algebra.....and I'm totally going to fail it D: Jon, "Serious guy", is online and tries to help me study. I'm no good at online help, however, and I ask if he minds if I come over so he can help me (bold for me, out of sheer desperation at my Math-fail :( ). After about a half hour of studying (if that) I give up, and instead catch up with him. We trade relationship fails, dating misfires, etc.

Nov 14, 2006 EARLY A.M. He makes me breakfast :) I confide in him about a recent guy involvement who is likely not to be healthy for me, I express fears of spiralling back into San Angeloness. I express how it's a pity that guys can't just come out and say they're for a long term relationship, so that all the dancing around gets out of the way.

Jon asks me if I wanted to try something long term.

me = O.O

then, :D "yes!"

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABY! You're so cute and boldly honest! :)

I really wish I could be there with you today, and that I was less sick, but we will have to make it up sometime soon :) LOVE YOU!!!!

LOL actually yeah! I worked there for a little over a year part time. Dec 05-April 07

Thanks for the condolences! She was a precious part of my life, and it was pretty rough given that she was only sick for 6 weeks, only 3 years old, and died in a rather traumatic way for me (she wasn't in any pain though, thank God). But your thoughts are very much appreciated :)
