Me Now

Well since it has been a while once again. Turns out I’m really bad at this blogging thing, but I know that when I need to rant it will always be here. It’s a pretty good outlet for my problems.

As it has been a good year and a half since I typed here last I should probably update everyone on what my life is like at the moment. Subject to change at any time.

It’s summertime here in northeastern Pa. I just graduated from High School a few months ago and this Fall I am headed to Delaware Valley University to study Animal Science/ Pre-Professional. Heading towards that Veterinarian track I’ve always hoped to pursue.

My love life consists of one man, which if you know me is quite impressive. Not that there hasn’t been a lot of guys between the last time I posted to know, but catching everyone up would take a while. Maybe I’ll do it someday. Just not right now. My current boyfriend of almost 11 months now, Tucker, who I believe I could love for the rest of my life is still my new infatuation. As this is my longest standing relationship I can say that I truly am in love with this boy and that there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do for him. Although, we fight a lot more than we probably should and we say things we don’t mean, he’s my whole world. I don’t know what I would do without his love, support, and smile.

I met Tucker at my now ex-boyfriends Prom where he was attending with his ex as well. We said hi to each other, as our exes knew each other and were introducing us. Other than that we had no contact until about the end of August when he added me on Snapchat and started flirting. At this time I was single for almost a couple months now, but he was still with the girl he had gone to that Prom with back in May. He came to me about the problems they were having and we got to be pretty good friends. Eventually he asked me out to dinner and well the rest is history (and a story for another time).

Thats a quick rap up on what has been going on in my life and I appreciate if anyone read through it all. :p

I Thought This Only Happened In Movies

I thought someone was actually dying yesterday. Between my Mother acting stressed out and my Step Dad’s sudden show of affection, which never happens, I was truly concerned. I had asked what was going on, but things were being kept under wraps.

Late last night my parents called my brother and me downstairs to talk. My Mom told me that I might want to sit down and she started to explain the situation. One of my Step Father’s old exes had contacted him and informed him that he had a son…

My Step Dad, who had raised my brother and I like we were his own since I was two, had a biological son? I almost started laughing that’s how messed up everything seemed. I couldn’t wrap my head around it so I sat there listening.

He’s now 20 and he had lived in the same town as us and he went to the same school that we do…

At age 20 what could they possibly want or be looking for at this point? I don’t quite understand… why now?

He’s going to get bloodwork and tests done to make sure it’s all true, but it seems like a plot from a movie. The four of us are the only ones who know anything about it. What is this going to change if it’s true? Probably a lot…

Giving Up

After the heartbreak of losing Liam for no reason, I was just ready to give up on healthy and happy relationships. So I did, I quit trying and began to talk to every guy who would talk to me. It didn’t matter to me if they were attractive, nice, caring or not because I wasn’t planning on pursuing anything with any of them. After a few months of that, I decided that maybe I was ready for something real again.

I talked to a few guys who I thought could have some real potential, but none made quite the impression on me like Damen did. At some point I had requested to follow him on Instagram, but I can’t seem to remember when. He followed me back and began to message me and then Snapchat me. We talked on and off for a few weeks and then our schools’ football teams played against each other one Friday night and I got to meet him for the first time. We didn’t talk much or get to hang out much and I was upset and thought that maybe he wasn’t into me like I thought he was. That night though he apologized for not spending more time with me and invited me to a party at his house the next night.

I’m not usually one for going to random peoples houses but I really liked him so I begged my reluctant parents and I drug my best friend there with me. When we got there he shook my Father’s hand and thanked my parents for allowing me to come. I was impressed because for a sixteen-year-old boy to have that sort of attitude and respect was surprising. It was pretty attractive though and I was excited to get to know him better. Things started moving pretty fast though and by the end of that night, we had kissed a number of times, cuddled and talked about what the future could hold. When I left that night I was so happy and I was hoping I had found a lasting relationship for once.

It lasted for a month, but things were shakey a while before that. He was very sensitive and we were always fighting and our relationship had moved WAY too fast.

When we broke up I had started talking to and became friends with a guy named Hunter. He listened to all my ranting and offered to call me that night to cheer me up. The next two weeks I spent snapping him and calling him for hours every night. We grew really close, really fast.

Damen had gotten a job at Dunkin and one night my Mom wanted to go see him because she missed him and she really liked him, but she didn’t want anything so I told her to just get me a coffee. When she came back she gave me my coffee and on the cup it said, “I am sorry. I miss you.” An hour or so later he called me to ask if I had gotten his note, but I was very upset and I missed him and I was really rude.

Not long after the whole coffee incident, he told me he wanted me back and I was stuck with a choice to make: Hunter or Damen?

My decision was made for me one night when I went out to dinner with my family and he showed up with flowers and an apology. I couldn’t say no to that and I wasn’t sure I wanted to. I liked the idea of familiarity and the security I had once felt with him.

Hunter was very upset and pissed at me for doing something I promised I wouldn’t do to him. He refused to talk to me and eventually we stopped talking altogether.

I chose the wrong guy… Yesterday Damen left me once again with minimal reasoning. He hurt me again and this time I have no amazing guy to fall back on. Hunter has moved on and I hope he has found someone who will make him incredibly happy and won’t hurt him. He deserves that.

As for me, I have been making Kasey put up with me and my problems. He’s been there and now I’m starting to worry that I will fall in love with him once again… or maybe I never really stopped…

Where to Start…

So much has happened since the end of June. Including my very interesting “love” life. The last you guys knew I was dating Liam who was away at basic.

Well, Fair started the 14th of July where I basically live in my camper for ten days and show my animals. The Fair Grounds aren’t too far from my house, so the rest of my family usually goes home at night while I stay there. The 2016 Fair I met a fellow 4her and hog shower, Kasey, and he ended up becoming my first boyfriend. He and his family also camped at the fairgrounds that week and we hung out constantly. At nights we would wait until my family left and he would sneak over to my camper and we would talk and cuddle until 4 am each morning. The whole situation became like my own fairytale and I fell for him until September rolled around and he broke my heart. Although he hurt me and messed me up for a long time we still stayed friends.

So flash forward until 2017 Fair where we both showed and lived for ten days. At this point, we were friends, but not too close and he had been dating a girl for six months now and I was with Liam. Probably the second or third day of Fair week we started texting and hanging out non stop. He was aware I had a boyfriend and I knew about Ashley his girlfriend. Roughly the fourth day of Fair and Ashley and his six month anniversary he broke things off with her. I was sitting there with one of my friends and she was helping him, but I stayed quiet because he knew I wasn’t a fan of Ashley.

After spending more and more time together we became inseparable. At nights a group of us 4h kids would take a projector and a sheet and show a movie every night for the last three or four nights for whoever wanted to come watch. Kids I had never even talked to would pass out right in front of my camper. Kasey would always come over and watch them and sit right next to me. As the days and endless nights would go on we became very flirty with one another. We’d tease each other and steal one another’s things and it’d always end with us cuddling and watching the movies we played.I knew it was wrong and I shouldn’t be doing that to Liam. but it didn’t stop me.

I had never really gotten over Kasey and we had started spending so much time together it was like he had never hurt me. The last two nights of Fair the cuddling turned into kissing and then sneaking off and making out. After Kasey and I talked we both agreed that staying friends would be better and that we had tried dating once and it didn’t work out. We have now coined the term “Fair Fling” and to this day we’re still friends and plan to fling this summer as well. Yes I know it’s a little weird, but we both have very poor luck when it comes to relationships.

I never once regretted the whole situation because when Liam came home he refused to talk to me and we broke up because he no longer wanted a girlfriend. He still has no clue what happened between Kasey and I and probably will never know, because in October he was arrested and he hasn’t been back since.

So that’s as far as we’re going tonight and that’s not even close to caught up yet… Ask questions if need be I’m not afraid to explain some things.

Update?

I’ve been trying to get myself to start writing again, but with everything going on it has been pretty tough to do so. I’m going to try to get back into the swing of things though.

So much has happened since the last time I updated this blog. Especially when it comes to my love life… It’s crazy how much has changed. It’s probably going to take a few entries to get everyone caught up. Life has been crazy and busy so there will be lots to tell.

I would start now, but I have to go milk in a half hour so perhaps tonight I will start catching everyone up. Comment what you want to know about first. Beware the ranting and feelings that are to follow this blog entry.

My Boyfriend Situation

Two guy based posts in a row… I promise I’m the farthest thing from boy crazy. Get ready for another really long read and I apologize in advance.

It’s currently summer vacation and our story starts at the beginning of the school year. My second period English class consisted of five people and I was the only girl. I shared the class with two guys from my grade and two guys that were in the grade above me. That’s where this whole mess of a story starts… that second period English class.

One of the upperclassman I guess we will call him Liam. I knew his first name at the beginning of the year and for over half the school year I said very little to him. My best friend, we will call her Mia, started to talk to Liam and not long after they started dating.

Liam and Mia’s relationship was way troubled… they both were guilty of cheating on each other, but Mia was more so guilty than Liam and after maybe only two weeks she broke up with him. She was already talking to at least two other guys the next day and when she told me they broke up she was laughing about it.

Now since Mia and I were Besties she wanted me to become friends with Liam and while the two dated we would talk more and more. When she broke up with him he was devastated and came to me for someone to talk to. I felt bad because I knew how she had treated him and lied to him and used him. During the next couple of weeks Liam and I had gotten close and he often hinted that he liked me.

First of all I knew that Liam was not someone that you could trust. He was a liar, a cheater, and just not a great guy all together. I often voiced my opinion about the number of hoes he had and he would often reassure me that he could be loyal. He was really sweet and was a really great friend and even though I was weary I decided to give it a try. I kept my guard up for a long time.

I expected the worst from him, but what I didn’t expect was Mia’s reaction when she found out that we liked each other. Mia and I were like sisters and I thought that nothing was going to change that but boy was I wrong… She was outraged and stopped talking to me, but not until after voicing to me that I wasn’t actually a friend and that I had purposefully tried to hurt her. The next day she left school crying over the whole situation. When I got home I tried texting her and asking if she was okay and that I honestly didn’t think that she would have cared considering how their relationship ended, but she had insisted that she had loved him. I had lost my best friend because of a guy… At this point I really had to make Liam and I work because I wasn’t going to lose her for no reason.

After a long weekend school started again and that first day back Mia saw how fine I was and that I wasn’t going to let her get to me. That night she texted me and apologized for overreacting. At this point I was over all of the drama and I just left her on read.

I know that what I did was wrong… The whole situation was a bad judgement call and it should’ve been handled differently. I’ll take the blame and now after months of rebuilding our friendship we are slowly but steadily fixing what we broke.

Less than a month into Liam and I dating I found out that he had cheated on me. I wasn’t hurt and I wasn’t surprised. He had been distant recently and I could tell what was coming. We broke up and I went on with my life.

A month later it had been less awkward around him at school and he was back to being flirty with me here and there. Fast forward to my birthday where he snap chatted me and told me how much of a crappy person I was, because he had found out that I was talking crap about him with Mia. Let’s just say he definitely ruined my day. A few weeks later he snapped me telling me that I had looked “really cute today”. I never let much bother me so I was already over him being a jerk and after a few conversations here and there we agreed to be friends.

One night he called me because he had just gotten off work and was bored, so I talked to him for sometime. After we hung up he text me, “I’m glad I can still make you laugh” and just like that we found ourselves talking again. He really was a sweet guy and I couldn’t help the fact that I still had feelings for him. We started dating again and this time there was no problems that raised from it.

He left for basic training at the beginning of June and I miss him like crazy. I still am scared to trust him 100% because of what happened, but I do love him. Honestly without him I am really lonely. Sadly, I’ve thought about replacing him while he is gone but I don’t think I could do it. I’m terrified of losing him and I can’t wait for him to come home.

Wow… if anyone made it through this post I applaud you and also appreciate it. I hope I didn’t confuse anyone. Feel free to comment if you have questions and I’ll try to clear things up.

Being Understood

It’s hard to feel understood as a teenager or even an adult really… I guess things never change. I live in a small town on a dairy farm… It’s a small town, but not too much of it is actually rural.

I’ve always wanted a best friend who lives the way I do and understands me and can contribute to a conversation that starts with “We had a cow freshen yesterday and she ended up with milk fever.” (Terrible IK). All I get are blank stares from my friends and I mean it’s not really their fault they weren’t raised like me.

I have one friend who can somewhat follow along with the jargon, but then when she gets lost she just pretends to know what I’m talking about. She has a barn on her property that only has animals in it when they raise them to show them at the fair, it’s surrounded by fields someone else farms and she calls their lawnmower a tractor… Now I understand that country isn’t where you live and what you where because I dress up to go to school and when I’m with friends, but something about her trying to call herself country and a farmer just ticks me off. I guess it’s really because she will never understand the blood, sweat, and tears that’s put into the back breaking work of a farming family to just get by. But, she is the closest thing that I’ve got to what I’ve always wanted. Again I’ll say that it sucks the only people I can talk to about this is my family. I kinda can’t wait to leave here and find my kinda people.

This whole post would probably make you shake your head if you knew the kinda social status I have at school. You’d think someone like me would be an outsider, but I’m not. I hang out with who you’d call the “popular girls” in school and I know others would die for that kinda standing, and I love all my friends I really do… I just wish they could relate more to me.

Anyone else out there like me? It’s funny that beginning this post I really didn’t know where I was going with it but I guess I figured it out. Sorry to bore you all with my thoughts but it’s nice to put them out there finally and just be able to write.

About Me

So… first blog post. I really don’t know where to start. I guess the only reason I’m awake at 1:25 A.M. starting a blog is because I was searching through Netflix and stumbled upon the movie Ask Me Anything. I guess you could say it hit me in the feels. So hear I am… I guess a 16 year old girl has nothing better to do on a Summer night. Well, I definitely don’t because my boyfriends at basic for the whole Summer. For those of you who don’t know what basic is, I’m talking about basic training since he joined the National Guard. The only way I get to talk to him is through writing letters… very old school I know, but also cute. Trying to tell myself I’ll be okay until the end of August without him as I lay in bed wearing the hoodie he gave me, listening to sad music, and starting a blog. I’m not sure how much you’ve really learned about me so far, but if you’re still reading I guess you want to learn more. I live in a small town on a dairy farm… I’m sure I just lost about half of you but that’s okay. I play high school varsity soccer and have lettered both years of my varsity career. I’ve been playing since I can remember and I’ve been told that I’m really good and that I have the skill to play in College. I also show at our local fair which starts in Julyyyyyy!!! Well now that it 2:18 I might as well try and sleep.
