Give me your misery, all of it give it to me
I can hold onto it for you, it’s not a problem
I just want your energy, a piece of that fractured mountain
I’ll take whatever comes with it as long as it’s yours

Black and White Challenge

With everything that’s been going on this past month I completely forgot about this challenge that was presented to myself and Brennan by Stef. It was more a trio challenge to complete a certain style of photo within the month. If Brennan had not done his I would have totally failed it. Oddly enough I randomly shot a picture earlier today for no real purpose outside of possibly updating the header on my Blogroll page. I figured since it was Stef’s challenge to go black and white and I took this picture in her office, why not use it to complete her challenge. It works well in color as well and you can see below and on the Blogroll page if you’re curious.

Now since I forgot about the challenge I didn’t plan out what I would write. Which means again here I am coming up with the words to go along with a shot. Funny how it keeps going like this lately. With that being said I’ve delved ever so slightly into my decision on SL relationships lately but I haven’t really given Stef her due credit on sticking it out while I figured my own shit out. So maybe this post should be about her. Seeing as I did steal her office today, which yeah she doesn’t know about, well until she sees and reads this. Yep now you know. It turned out nice though right?

Okay so when we met I knew absolutely nothing about her. It was a blog post right here on January 1st that caused her to even reach out to me, which you’ve read about it in the previous post if you read it. But for the sake of those who didn’t and don’t care to go back to it, I will quote it below so as to not repeat myself.

“You know by now if you’ve followed at all that I chose to change my mind on that statement. It wasn’t something I decided on quickly either. I literally took months to figure out what I felt was the right decision. If you don’t believe me on that, just ask her. She’ll tell you I was not an easy one to sway. But you have to take some risks and this one felt right even with my previous chapter being what it was. I don’t know where it will go, how it will be, if it will end, or if it won’t. All I knew was if I didn’t take the chance then I would never get the answers to at least some of those questions.”

Blogroll
The Original shot edited and prepped for my Blogroll page. Enjoy and check it out in full.

Long story short on that, I posted the Matthew McConaughey thing because I had no ideas and it inspired me. Well it had the same effect on her and she felt that she should tell me that. It started a chain of Facebook messages back and forth for a while. She knew where I stood on relationships since I had openly expressed in a few posts prior to that (as well as after). I was quite sure of that decision for the longest time and even she could tell you that. Now I’m pretty positive that waiting that length of time was no easy feat, but she did. In my mind anyone that was willing to wait that long for me to make up my mind, knowing full well I could just say no and that I was sticking to my stance, well they had to be pretty sure of themselves. So as you already know I changed my mind and said yes.

Now we both lead reasonably busy lives and thus far the time we’ve spent together has been pretty great. We’ve hung out quite a bit with Brennan and Brenna, yea I know how that sounds and they know how it sounds and you’re just gonna have to deal with that too. We all get along well which was a very important thing for me to see. I’ve known Brennan for at least two decades, yep we are that old, and Brenna and I clicked pretty much right off the bat. So for me it was very important that if I were to make a change that person would have to be able to get along with them.

Oddly enough, and if this is news to either of you two, I apologize, but they both knew before I did. They both told me they knew before I knew. Not to pressure me, because neither of them would do that, but to express that they both got along great with her and that she was as welcome around them as I was. I certainly weighed that heavily when I thought it all through. It’s important that my friends get along with my significant other and vice versa. Because I don’t just drop people. In that same sense it would be safe to say that if they didn’t get along or felt something was off that I would have considered that as well. Trust is important and I trust them. If they trusted her then I trusted her.

So here we are, nearing the end of April and things are looking a lot more promising than I would have thought when the year started out. Things can always change because none of us are promised tomorrow, people change, feelings change, all that jazz. But right now, right here I’m in a good place, and I think, or hope at least, that she is as well. I’m sure we both wish there was more time in the day and that there weren’t miles in between, but if things are meant to work out then those obstacles won’t matter in the long run. Here’s to the future and whatever it may hold.

Say hello to all my problems for me
Tell them sorry, I can’t be around anymore
The years will go on, we’ll get older and then we’ll die
But we’ll get by

And it goes on forever just like this
If I could go back, I would do it all over with you again

  1. I won’t lie that I saw it clear as day, more so than I can say about other things but it’s good to know that two great people found their way to one another. I look forward to watching the both of you progress together as well as individually.
