Ten Day Meme: Day One

Stolen from clionona ....

Day One:  Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two images that describe your life right now, and why.
Day Ten: One confession.

Day One:  Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

1)  You don't know much about me because I won't let you learn much about me.  You are so quick to assume you are right and that anyone who disagrees with you is an idiot who needs to be educated.  Needs YOU to educate them.  Even when you are in the wrong, like when every person working in an industry tells me this is how to do it and you INSIST your way is just fine, even though you know fuck all about anything and your advice will actually set me further back.

2)  I won't let you learn much about me, either.  Your tendency to take little things about me and use them as an emotional cudgel angers the fuck out of me, especially when it's something I tell you in confidence.  You still don't believe you cost me that gig by talking to the guy and lobbying him by telling him aaaaaaaall about me, destroying any professional vibe I had created.  Your solution to my shyness was to make sure everybody in the friggin' room hugged me and paid attention to me, which only made me feel worse.  Whether or not you mean it, you abuse personal information and I will keep it away from you as a defensive mechanism.

3)  After everything I did wrong, the fact that you are still there for me and never even considered kicking me to the curb means more than I can ever express.

4)  Same to you, old friend.  I'm sorry I didn't keep up with all of you.  Now, we're still in contact, but separated by distances that feel like entire worlds.  I know we'll catch up to each other some day, and it's going to be one awesome reunion.

5)  And to you, almost the same thing as above, and I will beat you one day.  You laugh, and frankly, I'm laughing, too.  But without that ambition, I only get worse.

6)  You can suck a rock out of my ass.  I am done paying for your manipulations.  That I didn't lose my friends thanks to you is nothing less than a miracle.

7)  You recently reconnected with me.  Are you sure you're not nuts?

8)  You have taught me so much.  I know you say I would have figured this out on my own, probably not as quickly but still pretty fast given my legendary impatience.  But make no mistake -- I wouldn't be what I am now without you, and I like what I'm becoming.  Please keep up the good work.

9)  For someone who decided to be friends with me just because, it's amazing how close we've become.  Thank you for coming into my life.

10)  I DO NOT HAVE MERMAIDS ON THE BRAIN, GODDAMMIT!!!  (Note:  that can go to more than one person.)
