Due to my sister's FINALLY having her baby, the family and I will be heading down to Missouri to visit them starting tonight. We'll be back next Friday. I plan to bring my laptop with me, but I don't know if I'll have Internet access or anything of the sort. But after next Friday, I'll be up and running once again. (:

Ten lies (and one truth) that you've told
[locked from other CSI characters]
1. "I love you, Dad."
2. "I probably won't get much further than the Bronx."
3. "No, you're right. Going to college is probably more trouble than it's worth."
4. "I don't want to leave the East Coast."
5. "I love you, Greg."
6. "You can hang around the lab; you're not contaminating anything."
7. "I promise, Hodges .. I'm listening. That's a fascinating story."
8. "Nah, I'm not hungry."
9. "Mmm, this cake is delicious!"
10. "You were my first time."
I guess I'm back.
I'm still deciding whether or not that's a good thing.
OOC: After much deliberation, I've decided to take a hiatus. My life has become too busy, too stressful, and too chaotic to try and keep up with my muses. I lack the energy and enthusiasm to write the answers to the prompts, though I greatly wish to do so. My mind is so bogged down with other happenings and issues I currently have in my own life, and so it leaves little to no room for my pups and their voices.
I do hope that this funk I find myself in won't last for too long, but even if it comes to me withdrawing my pups from the communities I am involved in, I truly enjoyed writing to and with all of you. But don't get too comfortable without me; I hope to be back shortly.

'What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.' Do you agree or disagree? Why?
I think I generally agree with that statement. I say generally because I think it depends on what happens, and who it happens to. But for me personally, I think it's a fairly true idea.
Living back at home in the Bronx didn't kill me. It came close, but never followed through (thank goodness). But it wasn't easy. At the same time, it made me realize what kind of life I didn't want. What kind of life I didn't want to settle for. I had plenty of friends growing up who let their home or personal situations get the better of them. They accepted and settled, and .. I guess, in the end, what didn't kill them made them weaker.
And I guess the same goes for the past relationships that I've had. To sum them up, they were anything but pretty. Mike was an absuive person, similar to my father. John cheated on me with my best friend. They made me lose a lot of the hope that I had for the opposite sex, and for people in general. But I didn't let that get to me. I didn't let two assholes convince me that everyone was like that. Which is good, because if I did, I wouldn't have met Greg. I would have gone on to lead a cynical life, most likely by myself.
So, the point of all this is .. is that life isn't easy. And things are always going to try and get in the way of our uphill climb. But we either have the choice of crawl over those boulders, or let them squash us into the ground. But that's a choice we have to make, on our own. And no one can make it for us.
