Ending Things

So the past few weeks for me have meant finishing as many projects as possible. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you see it) this also meant breaking up with Adam. Things just hadn't been the same since I graduated and moved back to Indianapolis. He was supposed to come down to see me the past couple weekends, but at the last minute would always come up with something better to do, and he really sucked at calling me back. Seriously- I went 4 days waiting for him to call back. Not cool.So on Saturday afternoon, squeezing a stressball to death in hopes of not yelling (it worked!) I told him that it just wasn't working, and I needed out.

Of course he assumed there was someone else (does a cat count?) and called me all sorts of things (that I'd only ever heard on Jerry Springer) and that was it. And he's called about a million times since Saturday afternoon, I guess wanting me to change my mind. Not happening.

So after I ended things with Adam I noticed the little gray and black reminder of him on my desk. So I finished that too. (the hat, not the cat)

Sorry for the scary pictures- I took them as I was getting ready for work. Anyhoo, the hat is in the mail headed towards Lafayette. And not only is this a good way to end things with Adam, but my size 8 dpns are finally free.

Why do I have "Potential Break-Up Song" running through my head?

It took too long
It took too long
It took too long for you to call back
And normally I would just forget that
Except for the fact it was my birthday
My stupid birthday

I have a friend who also has a LDR with a guy who never calls/always cancels. I keep trying to get her to end it but so far she keeps making excuses for him. Ah well.

Dearest Paige,

This is probably my most favorite picture of you. Besides the demonic blow pop incident that haunts my dreams. I can't explain why, but seriously...I love it!
