CollegeTutor

So last Saturday I went on a date. The first for the year — well really a few months. So how did I meet my date, now to be known as CollegeTutor? Well, via a Internet dating site. The fact is that I just don’t meet a lot of men as I go about my daily routine. Heck, men don’t even really flirt with me via Facebook where I have over 900 friends. The ones that have a crush, admire from afar. And so while a dating site is not ideal, I decided to throw it in the mix – […]

Explaining Londoners

Want to figure out a Londoner? Then according to a recent New York Times article, you can make a snap judgement by the newspaper he or she is reading. Specifically: The Daily Telegraph: Older conservatives who mourn the loss of the empire by placing cricket before family. Last truly happy on D-Day. The Guardian (or The Observer on Sundays): Bikram-practicing middle-class liberals preoccupied with ending all wars and rolling their own cigarettes. The Times of London: Definitely a member of the political and corporate elite; fancies him-or herself as tolerant; has zero middle-class friends. The Independent: Slightly depressed and overeducated […]

This is happening as I’m quite conscious of the fact that time is fluttering by, so I need to make room in my life for a potential new partner.

Well I went to this psychic last December and during the reading she so easily told me about specific events from my past, that when it came to her predictions for my future, I’m confident […]

Closure

So I haven’t heard from RacquetballGuy; not a word since he cut the holiday short and left prematurely last October. Heck, he didn’t even call or send a text to say that he arrived safely back in Chicago. I’m not surprised. I did tell him that if he left without us really trying to sort matters, I wanted no contact. Enough was enough and I really meant it. In many ways, him being here had brought about the long desired closure I needed. Sure I had initially thought it would be a rekindling of our romance, but the reality is […]

For Better, For Worse

So towards the end of January, I spurred a friend on to start a blog and I told him that I’d commit to posting two to three times a week. Not just about the fluff stuff, but about things that really mattered to me. Getting him to start, was an incentive for me to recommit myself. I’ve been trying and meaning to commit more seriously to this blog, but simply haven’t properly followed through. This is despite the fact that I’d really, really like to document my personal history more. The journey is like a roller coaster with many highs […]
