that's why this place is the best: http://www.shepherdsdream.ca/
@AnnieNilsson hahah first i read it like "I'm asking for you to be my friend" but then i read it like "I have a friend who wanted to know if people still say the bomb, it wasn't really me" - it was the second one right? I mean, people still say it... but probably those people are our moms? like bling? it's mom territory, but maybe it could have a recent-retro resurgence?
@AnnieNilsson hurray! now that the seal is broken, you will be happy for all kinds of friendships that don't involve you! I bet people are excited about this friendship developing as we speak!
I'm so glad Logan and Mike Dang are friends!!!!!
@Lindsay Katai everyone who writes on here is so lovely.
I see what you're saying and mostly concur, but a weird experience recently has caused me to regress in the opposite direction. A friend of mine passed away who was a true man-about-town, and a dirtbag, and never quite had his shit together. But he taught me how to be in a city, and how to explore it, and what a gift that is. Now that I've moved back home to this city and it's giving me a second chance - I feel conflicted between whether it's more important to have my shit together or make room in my life to really be in this place - spontaneously and recklessly, or with purpose and poise - either way. I guess I'm just point out that it's rarely a shift from "hot mess" to "shit together" - it's usually a matter of acknowledging the tension between the two.
