from raven72d :
I'm glad you're still out there. I hope you'll drop by here more often and write things and leave notes. D-Land has been my safe place for many a year.
from raven72d :
Still out there? 16 April 21.
from se7enchance :
It's a shame you don't write in this little box-space more. I mean for us-- the people who read your writing. <3
from nineofswords :
Thanks for that info!! I have not heard of the website you mentioned, but I will definitely check it out! It sounds like a good thing.
from atwowaydream :
Your latest entry is possibly the most beautiful entry I've ever read on diaryland. Ever. <3
from mistfree :
Glad you haven't abandoned us. I enjoy your entries. I'd say you deserve more than three minutes of anyone's time.
from nineofswords :
Thank you for your very kind words. You gave my spirits a lift and I appreciate it. :-)
from raven72d :
I'll keep an eye out for your comments!
from raven72d :
Always good to read your entries.
from dangerspouse :
An electric...whisk? Oh wait - we have one already. Except she calls it "a vibrator". Thanks for the well wishes, kiddo! :)
from dangerspouse :
I'm not going to lie. You're very, very correct. :)
from dangerspouse :
Hey, thanks for the notes! I was beginning to fear you'd taken off on extended holiday again. Although...sorry to read of your aggravating sexual experience(s). That really sucks. I'm doing fine, thanks, other than the usual and expected frustrations of just living in this Modern World. Glad you like my grill - stop by if you're ever in the area and you can try it! ;)
from dangerspouse :
I really like your new website, Ali. Well done, all of it! Best of luck hauling in the riches, even if you say that's not the point. Of course it is :)
from atwowaydream :
Your note really, really hit home with me. I'm nearly speechless. And you're right, sometimes when we lock up or we disappear there's some internal turmoil inside that we need to get out or totally escape from. If you ever want to keep in contact, email me at: inlethaldoses@aol.com. I know you have so much going on in your life right now and I'm not just throwing this out there for the hell of it. I'm a pretty good listener and loyal as fuck, so if you need anything. . . <3
from atwowaydream :
::climbs inside of the little box with you:: sometimes this place really is the comfiest place in the world. i'm glad you can at least come here. we all melt down and not many of the people around us are entirely understanding. but this place, this little box is legit.
from ravengreen :
I feel I need to express some solidarity. I've just returned to my diary after being distracted from it for so many years. You are right. It feels like home.
from atwowaydream :
This diary is my best friend, and I agree -- it's hard to be introspective when we surround ourselves with the troubles of others, but hey, it's a process and all of that shit. Years ago I remember when I was so entirely detached from myself that I didn't know one emotion from another. Now I'm learning to recognize the overwhelming spectrum of everything that comes with being human. I totally agree, our journals are quite the flashlight into our psyches. ps: I look forward to reading more of your entries -- don't disappear!
from dangerspouse :
Woo hoo! I'm so glad to hear that! I really do hope you write more - you have a real gift for words. Drop by and leave me a note any time. I promise I'll always get back to you (assuming I'm not in jail or wandering aimlessly in the dessert again). All the best!
from baxter55 :
You're awesome. Keep updating. Came across you by chance and I love your voice. I have no idea how to favorite you, but I'll do my best to remember your handle.
from dangerspouse :
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw you'd updated! I thought you'd decided after your last missive that enough was finally enough. I'm glad it wasn't...or rather, I hope it wasn't. I hope you stick around longer this time. You have a gift with words.
from raven72d :
Glad to have you back! Comment often! I enjoy hearing from you!
from atwowaydream :
Welcome home, Amanda. You were missed from both here and FB. (And thank you for the note).
from raven72d :
come back and write again?
from raven72d :
Thank you! I think I will make it a once-a-week thing, and take the chance to explore more places downtown.
from dangerspouse :
I say we go wherever the other 64.4% of writers go. (Although in reality, I now have to go home. Work just ended and I've gotta scoot, so if you leave another note and I don't answer within a few hours, don't descend back into despair! I'll be back. Rejoice!)
from dangerspouse :
Do you really think that the best writers are the most tormented people? I know that's been rather a historical stereotype, but I personally haven't found it to be true. It seems like the best writers I've known all experience such an emotional catharsis from their work that that it promotes overall peace in them. Of course, it may be that I just happen to know all naturally placid writers, ie: ones who don't have to endure Chicago winters every year :)
from raven72d :
Listening to rain, hoping for autumn. Autumn is always the season where I feel most at home.
from raven72d :
new layout, new entries... I like both.
from raven72d :
Doing okay... Busy at work, but getting through the summer! Glad you're still here, and I hope you'll keep writing!
from raven72d :
are you still out there?
from atwowaydream :
it's nice to know that if at least only in this realm, I can find such supportive and encouraging words. i guess we're always our worst critic, huh? i really needed that note, so thank you, love.
from atwowaydream :
That really meant a lot to me, at a time when I definitely needed to hear it. Thank you, love.
from atwowaydream :
eep! yay.
from atwowaydream :
inlethaldoses@aol.com Although I don't think my editing options are letting me add anyone because I'm a paranoid schizophrenic. find me.
from atwowaydream :
okay, tell me a way to find you. you can email me at inlethaldoses@.com because i'm beyond nostalgic and can't let go of the nineties.
from atwowaydream :
Want to be facebook friends? (check yes or no.)
from raven72d :
Thank you! I'll give it a try!
from atwowaydream :
I feel like I'm in Sophie's Choice. I'll really, really have to think about that one. What's one of yours?
from atwowaydream :
It's hard to always be our own rock, and if you're like me, friends can't always be trusted. But sometimes they can, if you find the right ones. I hope things get better for you.
from raven72d :
LDR is so deliciously, film-noir stunning.
from atwowaydream :
Vintage TMNT or die. None of this new 3-D computer bullshit that has infected the Care Bears and all of the other awesome eighties cartoons.
from raven72d :
A friend told me that I must dress so that Lana Del Rey would call me "Daddy". I have no idea what that means, but my friend has good advice...most of the time. So I'll try to go with her advice.
from atwowaydream :
Pajama shopping so much fun, I don't care what anyone says. I'll wear my pajama bottoms grocery shopping, I don't give a fuck, and they're just so comfy. Where do you live? And nothing wrong with being weird, I can't even associate with supposedly normal people. I fall asleep.
from raven72d :
I hope the new job goes well for you.
from atwowaydream :
I would kill for a pair of She-Ra pajamas, too!
from atwowaydream :
It's hard when you watch your sister die head-first into bad relationships. I've actually had the police called on me because of one of my sister's boyfriends (very abusive) and eventually all you can do is shake your head and hope she friggin' learns. Too bad so few of us know our worth. I know I don't.
from atwowaydream :
Sometimes a simple nostalgic gesture from a friend can mean a hell of a lot more than a Happy Birthday. Eeyore was always my favorite, I just wanted to hug him and love him forever.
from famoustn :
I read your last entry, and I just wanted to say that I know where you're coming from. While my mother hasn't gone as far as your mother, I know the feeling of wanting to get out more than anything in the world. I don't know if this will make you feel any better, but I just thought you might want to know that you're not alone in your situation. I do hope things get better for you, and that you are able to leave.
from raven72d :
An extra $100 can't hurt... And at least a library isn't a bad place to end up for a day.
from raven72d :
Thank you! I like small things, and the stories they do tell.
from atwowaydream :
Definitely can relate to the euphoria of being alone; no rules, alcohol, you can sing really loud or jump around or just chill the hell out without anyone around you. Enjoy!
from the-grey-one :
ah yes! an old member, that would explain it! welcome back!
from atwowaydream :
I know it's late, but happy birthday.
from the-grey-one :
hey. couldn't help but notice you're new around here! how'd you manage that? haven't seen someone new in these parts for a hellofalong time.
from atwowaydream :
Thank you so much for being so supportive of me, I really, really needed that, especially after last night. I'm glad your coming into our little community; it's nice and comfy here. With lots of wonderful and encouraging people. Hi Raven!
from raven72d :
Selena is part of the whole web of connections I've made through online journals since '02--- some good friends, some wonderful things to read, some very interesting people, and a sense of being connected. I've been here at DL for almost eleven years, and it's been a good experience.
from raven72d :
I've been reading her for something like seven or eight years now, and she is a delight.
from raven72d :
"the pixel-word connection"... i love that phrase.
from raven72d :
Thank you! A belated Valentine that was most appreciated.
from atwowaydream :
I'm not good at abstaining, either. Wanted to send you hugs. . . especially with everything going on with your mom. Your brother seems to have inherited some of her sadness, but he has to realize that you have all been affected, and can't always be the strong one. Anyway, much love to you.
from atwowaydream :
I use my journals for the same reason; the record, to go back, to remember how I felt, if I felt, what I felt. As for strangers, most of my really good friends were once strangers from the internet. These little words and pixels can be more intimate than someone in your face, not really truly listening.
from raven72d :
And do feel invited to read and comment at my diary, too.
from raven72d :
I do enjoy your entries. And I understand about personality crises and gift boxes. I'll be reading along--- I really like your writing.
from atwowaydream :
"Hard to believe how much damage a simple feeling can cause. Hard to believe how much a simple feeling can damage." - Amen, darling.
from raven72d :
Very powerful entries...
from atwowaydream :
♥ Sorry, sometimes I just get suspicious of people I don't know. The only people worth knowing are at least a little crazy, at least that's what I tell myself.
from atwowaydream :
Who the fuck are you?
