You’re passions could maybe be extracted OR reverse engineered or Learned from the girl you speak of… from time to time… (just don’t let your pendulum swing all the way). Nay… You never said it was an opposites attract thing, but was it ? Mine felt like that a lot…
I liked a girl, and I was too frugal and chased the first job offer… until that point I wanted to make movies, but I went for a summer job that paid though… I learned about paper jams and fluorescent lighting haha haha
Fast forward 4 years and I broke bread w said girl; she wore Bright green sneakers which said to me she must buy all the colors and be carefree and have shoes of ALL colors; I rocked the grey New Balance that go with everything.
(There’s even a meme somewhere making fun of that in me I saw after! Aaaahhhhh!!!)
So Present day… I like … to feel ‘pretty’, and I pay money and do a lot for my Goddaughter; she’s remarkable, and recognizes my packages I send to her.
Must remember not to get carried away for myself.
Most of this was ME in this post ; but my opening paragraph might have jogged something loose for you.
Lastly it’s good your over your girl; I am too!! Ahhhhhhhhhh sigh of relief!!!
