almost exactly 4 years ago, I wrote this:

i am not

beautiful, modelesque, feminine, glamorous, curvaceous, a natural beauty, graceful, a smooth-talker, a social butterfly, the type of girl that turns heads when she walks into a room.

i am comfortable, scrubby, laidback, tattooed, a beer drinker, clumsy, a comic book nerd, sometimes awkward, a little bit shy, the kind of girl that blends in as one of the boys.

i would rather wear my velcro vans than a pair of red stilletos. i don’t look good in lingerie, but i love to wear your oversized sweatshirts. i would rather go to a dive bar than a club. if you offer me a wine spritzer or whiskey on the rocks, i’ll choose the whiskey. i don’t giggle, i laugh.

i’ve been told i’m not feminine enough by the guys i’ve dated. but i’m looking for someone who will appreciate me for who i am. i can take care of myself, but i still want to be loved.

I’m happy to announce that I have not changed an ounce, but I have found a wonderful someone who does appreciate me for who I am. And moreso, he loves me for who I am.

Maybe one day I will write out our story in simple words and cartoon robots. And maybe one day you will be able to find our story with a coffee ring on its dust cover sitting on a shelf in your (or my) favorite used bookstore.

There are so many fragile things, after all. People break so easily, and so do dreams and hearts.

You like someone who can’t like you back because unrequited love can be survived in a way that once-requited love cannot.

expectation-less:

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” -Neil Gaiman

My first New Year’s Message, and still the best of them. Tonight I’ll write a new one, and I do not yet know what it will say.

She was gone, and all that was left was the space you’d grown around her, like a tree that grows around a fence. For a long time, it remained hollow. Years, maybe.

I love you crookedly because my heart’s been unhinged from birth. The doctors gave me strict instructions not to fall in love: my fragile clockwork heart would never survive. But when you gave me a dose of love so powerful - far beyond my wildest dreams - that I felt able to confront anything for you, I decided to put my life in your hands.
