I've never had moonshine...I feel so sheltered!
its similar to Potchin over here. lethal. Aint nothing like a crips iced Cider on a warm sunny afternoon!
Well, that guy sure looks like he's having fun. Bring it on!
Juniper- as long as getting up at 6 isn't a requirement, I'm game too!
Fifth- My ma can smell a bottle of wine and be out cold. I have no idea where I got my tolerance, but it wasn't from her! Two glasses of wine for her and she'd be on saline. Hooch is just another name for moonshine. It is legit 'shine, except the company got their distilling license so it's legal!
Meg- At work? Cool beans! I wanna work where you work! Honey shine is amazing. I made some a few months ago and put a bit of honey in it and wanted to do a little more than sip it.
Have to love Moonshine :lol: I had some honey shine a few months ago that was great for just sipping. I'll admit it was in the afternoon as well, and um... yeah... at work :blush: My employment is an interesting place:D
Well I'm like your Mum, I can't drink in the afternoon. Bit of a lightweight where alcohol is concerned. Two glasses of wine and I've had enough.
What exactly is hooch? Sounds like what you might be saying to the toilet if you drink too much of it!
I love drinking until four in the morning and playing video games. Love love love.
holy crap i just realized how huge that picture is.
my mother. my ma can't hold her liquor to save her life.
especially on a nice warm summers day!
I like you skib. You say what's on your mind.
It's okay to feel like running. It's okay to feel like you want to retreat to a place of safety, a place where you feel like you're in control. That's why you want to go home. You've been through some emotional turmoil recently, and you want to go back to a place where you felt secure and happy. And you recognise that too, which is good. What you, perhaps, need to think about doing is finding a way of creating that feeling of safety where you are right now, and once you've achieved that I think you'll be just fine.
Skib, you always strike me as someone who understands yourself. Sometimes that is a blessing and sometimes it's a curse. If you can focus on the positive side, then that'll go a long way to making things feel better. Because you are smart and independent and strong willed and determined, and you're not one of the herd and you're never going to be. These are all positive attributes. Eventually you'll stop beating yourself up about it and then you'll add confidence to that list. What more do you need? Love? That'll come, and it'll be brilliant when it does. But you need to add confidence to the list first. If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect someone else to?
Anyway, I'm not worried about you. You're strong and when you land you'll land on your feet. Best wishes, Fifth.
I think taking off is a very, very good idea. I tend to do that a lot... it's such an awsome feeling just hopping on a bus in the middle of the night and waking up in Vancouver. Do it! You're a boy (so you don't have to worry about the same nasty things happening to you when you travel alone like a girl does), just hop on a bus/take to the highway and book it! You only live once. If you wind up somewhere in the Rocky Mountains near Jasper, I'll house you for a bit.
Yeah, it definitely sounds like you need to get away for awhile.
Time to reconnect with Mother Nature.
It's the other thing that's in the air, besides love, I guess.
Meg- That does work. I'm planning on a camping trip as soon as I can go without getting snowed on. And if a short run's all I get, I'll take it.
Becca- Glad someone sees it like me! Thanks!
Virgil- Those just made my day! Thanks a bunch!
Somehow these are appropriate:
You're like boy version of me, in a lot of ways. I don't call it 'running away', though, I'd call it... pursuing... if you think of it as pursuing peace and serenity within yourself (sapppy) as opposed to fleeing from the things which plague you, you're more likely to succeed, in my eyes. Good luck.
Take a vacation even if it is just a short weekend. I know I wasn't ready to come home, but I don't feel a need to run away at the moment either. Sometimes just a short run is enough :)
Yeah, hang in there. You're a great guy, and most people, including girls, just want someone to come along and like them for who they are.
Just enjoy your life and the good things in it, including yourself. When you get older and are no longer overly sensitive, it all gets easier. Maybe not easy, but easier.
When it comes to love, you generally screw up a lot. I know I do. Most of the people I dated, was only because I pitied them for liking me.
Hell, I even quit university and spent a good chunk of what was meant to be the best years of my life in a really bad relationship. I just try to take the positives from it, like I now know what I don't want in a relationship, and I appreciate my healthy relationships a lot more. It also concreted my love for the bush and country lifestyle I think you should try take the same approach, think about what you've learned and try to take it onboard.
I can also sympathise about the school/bullying thing. I hung around with the popular group and put up with horrible people who were horrible to me, for God knows what reason. After I finished high school I came to my senses and cut off all contact with them. Anyway, I'm sure what my point is, I just want to say "I hear ya buddy"
Thanks for reading yall!
