Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

As I sit here and my class works on their review packets for their upcoming tests I find myself with sometime to let my mind wander for a few minutes. After about 30 seconds of my brain trying to kick start itself I remembered that I had a fiancée that I haven’t seen and barely talked to going four days now. Such is the life of a person who has two jobs.

(This is the part where I would insert a picture of me rolling in a pile of cash, but since I have loans to pay……well I think everyone can do that math.)

I immediately had a rush of feelings. Guilt, depression, but ultimately happiness and love. For today I get a break from the doubles and can resume a somewhat normal routine and get to spend time with my better half. Based on her being my first thought I would say that the old credo holds true, Absence does make the heart grow fonder.

On an aside…I know that I am normally good for more than a quick few paragraphs of nonsense, but again if it isn’t clear I am a busy person. Unless I find a respite during the day I’m normally running on reserves by late evening and not firing on all cylinders. I still have words of wisdom and other anecdotes to share just going to be bite sized chunks for now.



Ladies and Gents,

You are allowed to have emotions. Its part of being human. Anyone who says other wise is an idiot and was probably denied desert as a child. Happy, sad, excited, angry, what have you. If you want to  be a cackling buffoon like the Joker is 24/7 then go for it. Let your freak flag fly.

What you don’t want to do is bottle everything up inside to the point where it can no longer be contained and everything explodes all at once. It’s not healthy and it can normally lead to an embarrassing situation once the lid does pop off. I promise feeling something won’t hurt you.

People sometimes don’t display the correct emotion, well what would normally be deemed correct, for a given situation and its most likely because it’s not a situation they are used to dealing with. Give them a few beats to get it together and I’m sure everyone will be on the same page.  Relax people.
