Aaaand she's back.

[Disclaimer: Lately, I am in a perpetually good mood. While much of this post sounds kind of depressing, I am very happy-- both happy in my life, and happy to be back, writing to you.]

It was approximately seven hours into my day-long obsession with Formspring this December that I realized just how much of myself I give to the internet. I don't mean that in a "Zomg, my life is so hard-- people I've never even met care deeply about me!" way. I'm extremely grateful for the undeserved gift of my readers and viewers. I bring this all upon myself, and the vast majority of the time, I live for it. Even in my blogging absence, thoughts crossed my mind that I was dying to post. But, for two months, I fought those inherent urges to publish my naked soul. I did this for a few reasons.

Why I Haven't Blogged:

--Originally, it was because something truly awful happened in the life of a friend, and I neither possessed the drive to explain it cryptically enough so as not to dip into her privacy, nor the audacity to pretend it didn't exist and carry along my merry way while she was sad. And, frankly, her sadness weighs heavily on me, and she is significantly more important than my anecdotes about Mexican food. (Things are now as good and normal as they can be after a permanent loss, and, as my friend is the strongest person I know, she is doing well.)

--First dates are significantly less interesting when the other person knows, quite nearly, everything about you. Half the fun of meeting new people is telling stories to test their reactions, and watching them try to figure you out. You're excited to get their backstory, see if you understand them, and see if they understand you. Subscribing to a girl's every thought kind of ruins any chance she has at being intriguing.

--Winter break (without a temporary retail job, at least, which I did not have this time) is a flat-out uneventful time. Had I tried to come up with something fascinating to say every other day, I would have resorted to complaining about the world, which a) already occurs plenty often in this blog, and b) is downer. I don't know a lot of people who need another downer around commercial Christmastime, when the air is already thick with stress and money and family drama. And my family? They're good. They wouldn't have deserved whatever I resorted to bitching about in order to fulfill my self-imposed writing requirement.

--I wanted to sleep all morning and go out all night. Sue me; I'm nineteen. :)

--I just didn't feel like it. It's true that this dump for my whiny attempts at self-expression can be widely therapeutic at times (your witty comments alone tend to recharge me on sad days and make me happy to be living my life!), but sometimes the best therapy is to have a little bit of time alone. I've always been stumped about the question of whether I'm introverted or extroverted, because, like, I don't think it's standard introvert behavior to make a living off attention whoring, but the writer portion of my brain loves nothing more than to have privacy and ideas that I keep, solely, to myself. So, until I figure myself out, we're just going to have to go with the flow, I suppose. Over my winter break, The Flow didn't feel like blogging. Now It does.

Why I'm Glad I'm Glad I Wasn't Blogging:

--I feel really good, guys. It's like, for the time being, things are naturally working themselves out. I have good control over my relationships and my schoolwork and my emotions, and every life event appears to be happening for a reason. It's a good spell, and I'm not feeling regretful about a whole lot, so I can't help but think there was some kind of fateful reason why I didn't feel like writing for the last two months. Call me crazy. (No, seriously. You have my permission to call me crazy in the comments, because I just reread that paragraph, and I sound like one of those loopy existentialist English teachers that deck their classrooms out in dream-catchers and tell you to "feel your fate." I guess this is foreshadowing for my inevitable future career of owning several cats and painting my face with glue while I grade papers. I already dress like an English teacher, anyway.)

Why I'm Glad to be Back:

--It makes me feel... I don't know, validated? It makes me feel validated when I hear from readers who legitimately look forward to learning about my non-adventures. I've received countless heartwarming messages recently from people who wanted to make sure I'm okay and urge me to write. That's ridiculous. I'm so lucky and blessed and grateful.

I'm sorry that I disappeared with no warning, and I'll try to be more diligent about keeping you informed. You're loyal and sweet enough that I owe that to you. Until then, though... I think I'm back!

Sexy: Ben Folds. I've had this song in my head all day, and it's not annoying me yet.
Unsexy: Honestly, I've been sitting here for a full two minutes, trying to think of something worthy of complaining about. I'm so happy. I've got nothin'. Too bad, right?

Bye, guys! Hopefully I'll see you... soon. Hahaha. <3

Sara said...

HAYLEY!! <3
I'm so happy that you are back and that you are so happy with life right now. YOU DESERVE IT!

Steve said...

yay for hayley!

Melody said...

Hayley, you're crazy. :) <3

Katherine said...

I am glad you are back. I realized last night that I really missed your blog. I Gotta Feeling came on and it made me think of you.

Christina said...

I am so glad that you're back! It's always good to take a little hiatus if you need to. It's nice to know that you've been well during your vacation from this blog, although I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss your blog posts showing up in my dashboard.

Leah said...

B'awwwwh. For a second I thought you'd like Emmaline as a weird David's Birthday celebration, but no matter.

Good to have you back and all. Et cetera.

Robyn said...

Haley, you being back makes me HAPPY. Your blog helped get me through that high school thing called prom, the last few months of high school in general, and the start of university. Even though you're writing about yourself and your life, your blog adds a little bit of extra happiness to my life (that sounds so corny, but its true!), and I promise to comment more often.

seurat2 said...

Welcome back Hayley. My day just got noticeably better. Oh, and you're crazy.

megkatjo said...

BEN FOLDS! I LOVE HIM! (And Regina as well, but in a different way.)

I'm glad you're back! I missed your funny and sarcastic commentary on your life! I hope the semester is going well for you and that this good spell lasts as long as possible!

Fae said...

Hayleyghoover WROTE A BLOG! This is a wonderful way to start my day. (I'm Australian, I just woke up). Hope you have a lovely evening.

inthereins said...

I was beginning to wonder if you would ever start blogging again! I'm glad to hear about your 'uneventful' life again.
=)

Alice said...

I'm glad you're so happy Hayley :) Also I just got home and was welcomed by A NEW HAYLEYGHOOVER BLOG POST and this made me happy too, so EVERYONE is happy! Or....two of us at least.

Also, the Ben Folds video does not work for people in England. Did you do this on purpose so we could play the fun guessing game of 'which Ben Folds song is awesomest today?' Because my guess is a cappella Selfless, Cold and Composed :)

annaface said...

Ben Folds never gets annoying. Never in my life have I found a Ben Folds song annoying, no matter how many times I've listened to it.

Alice Wilder said...

So glad you're back! I'm a high school freshman and I love your blog, its proof that although High School sucks, but everyone gets through it.

Kate said...

like everyone else, i am soooooo happy you're back, but i'm more happy that you're happy. happiness is excellent. mhmm.
also. pleaaaaaaase keep on doing the nail polish color thing. i'm OBSESSED with OPI. and need more colors. and i need someone else who likes nail polish as much as i do (or you seem to, your nails alllllways look awesome.)

Tom said...

Goddamn that was uplifting haha. Yay whee hoo-rah. *tries to think of something witty* ...I got nothing tonight. That was just really happy-makin'. :) And thanks for the sub, lady. I know it isn't a big deal, but it still made my life.

Also, Ben Folds FTW. Try to catch him live if you haven't. His shows are just insanely fun. I've seen him a ridiculous number of times now, but it never gets old. Lots of audience participation and whatnot.

Ellery said...

It's so nice to hear from you again, Hayley!
P.S. I love that you love Ben Folds. He's been one of my faves for years! :)

alyson said...

So, so, so excited that you're back!

Also, I feel that I can't call you crazy because I almost gave up writing to study philosophy in college. I only gave THAT crazy idea up last semester and got back on track with the whole writing thing. So...the existentialism thing...understood.

Margaret said...

Hayley. Jesus. How many times do I have to tell you how awesome you are before you finally realize you deserve it? Seriously. It's getting ridiculous.

Jackie said...

Ah! It's so good to hear (read?) from you again! And, I'm glad to hear that your life is going well. I listened to that song on the bus today, and couldn't get it out of my head! So catchy.

Karen said...

I have to admit I've been checking almost every day since November to see if you had started writing again. I'm glad you're happy :)

Annie said...

For the last few months, I've been re-reading all of your old blog posts, in the absence of a new one, but now there is a new one. YAY!! It sort of feels like I've been re-reading books that I've had for a while and read heaps of times, and then I finally got a new one to read - the old ones are good, but nothing beats the excitement of having a new book.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I enjoy updates on your life as much as I like books. And I like books A LOT.

<3

iris said...

hayley hoover!
i MISSED you :(
but now you're back! the planets can resume their regular alignment!
please blog again soon. no pressure. but i really, really like reading about what's going on with you.
also, i'm really, really, /really/ glad you're so happy :D hope everything stays good.

Tom said...

Just gotta bring this up:
"First dates are significantly less interesting when the other person knows, quite nearly, everything about you."
Wait, so did that, like, actually happen? THAT would make for an entertaining blog entry. You say something about "my one friend Kristina" and the dude feels the need to interject, "italktosnakes. Monday on 5AG. Parselmouth. Formerly dated Alex Day. Currently dating Luke Conrad. That Kristina, you mean?"

Cat (: said...

YOURE BACK.

Just made my day, after a very suck-filled birthday yesterday. (:

Glad to hear from you and your witty self (:

Jordiekins said...

NOOOOOOOOO! I was planning a Lady Gaga parody to persuade you to return. Oh well...

It's great to have you back.

<3

Carina said...

Hayley! It's veeery nice to hear from you again :)

Not that I, like, checked every few days or anything.

Emily said...

YAY!!! Hayley's back! I mean, I totally get why you took some time off, and that's cool, but YAY! You're back! XD

Rosianna said...

Okay I used the wrong spelling so must re-comment.

Formspring had that effect on me too. Funny.

Lovely to read an entry of yours again, though!

Krissy said...

It's so great to see you back Hayley! And I also adore Ben Folds. <333

DoomAngelKitty said...

Yay you're back.
It's nice to take breaks for a while. Your blogs are amazing, it's keeping me sane during my holidays.

Abby said...

Woo!

Phyllis said...

Happy you're happy. Happy you're back. Regina <3

to_thine_own_self said...

Yayyyy! Hayley's back =D
Made my day, right there. Lol.

Don't worry about the break you took. I understand. You needed some time to just be for awhile. But I'm so glad you're writing again.

On another note, you and I seem to always have similar nail colors at the same time. Seriously. In videos, I'll notice your nails and look down at mine and think, Whoa, I have the same nail color as hayleyghoover! It happens all the time, and right now my nails are a dark grayish brown.

<3

Holly said...

I can haz nu Hayley blogg?! *dies of happiness*

Pippa said...

I'm glad you're back to blogging and I'm glad you're life is so great!

Marie said...

Yay! We really missed you. But really, if you don't feel like writing and everything's going well- we just have to suck it up and be happy that you're happy =) It's good that you don't feel obligated to blog, especially about every possible thing going on in your life. What you wish to share with us is enough, and your wit makes up for what you don't share with us! And by the way- reading your blog brightens my day, and I'd like to thank you for that (though you probably think I'M crazy). Oh my. This is really long. I'll shut up now =P

89ravenclaw said...

Welcome back, Hoover.

CRUNKRacoon said...

I feel like downright crap whenever I read your blogs. You write so wonderful, and my blog sounds so mediocre.
Whatever, it's a love hate relationship. You know we all love you, right? :)

Faith said...

Yay!!! Hayley's back! I missed my weekly dose of Hayley Hoover. Does that sound stalker-esque? It does... I promise I'm not a stalker!!

Anyway, I honestly didn't think your blog was that depressing. I guess I was just happy you're writing again...

Olivia said...

So glad you're back blogging, and that things are going well in your life.

Happiness/contentment is sexy. Unsexy: the show Secret Life. My roommate is watching it now, and I'm reminding myself that I love her.

I've missed your updates. It's nice to see you again. :)

Gavin said...

Lovely to read you again Hayley, and glad to see you so happy :)

Scott said...

Thank Jesus that you've returned and that I have mexican food references back in my life.

...And you know, you're happy, self-aware, and all that. XD

<3

Allison said...

Yaaay! <3. I missed you like Diana missed the mountains!

shaylaluna said...

I'm so glad you're back! I was wondering what had happened but I assumed that you were fine and so I decided to let Hayley be, or something like that. I dd miss your blog because of your wondeful writing, humor, and rants, but I too spend to much time on the internet. I'm so glad to hear you're happy, healthy, and living life!

Gomezzio said...

Glad to have you back to blogging :] The last time I've heard something from your brain [besides your tweets] is 'baby making elixir.' If those weren't parting words, I don't know what is.

By the way, may I point out that 'the last thing I've heard something from your brain' is both creepy and romantic?

shaylaluna said...

I omitted two letters from my comment. I, being an English Freak, am annoyed but I will blame it on the giant cast on my left arm. It makes typing very difficult.

Catherine said...

Thank you for coming back.

Sarah said...

It was nice to see a new blog post here! But even nicer to read that you are really happy these days. :) You deserve it!

Nokorola said...

So not to repeat nearly... well everyone, but I'm glad to see you back spilling your guts to us strangers. That is all.

Have a good week Hayley!

jessmcfadden said...

Awweee<3<3 You are The Best!

Tanairi said...

Crazy.

Welcome back to the blogosphere. :)

The Vagabond said...

YEEEEEESSSSSS!!! I am so freaking happy that you're back. I've missed you so much! I've been feeling so deprived without your blog and Glee! My computer went from having your page on it's Top Sites to forgetting your blog address altogether. Sad day. My mac is happy to see you again too. : )

I was just thinking about you and your wonderful blog a few hours ago too... strange.

And because you're back I am now going to entertain you (hopefully) with my dream from last night. I was visiting Maureen Johnson's apartment in New York and she didn't seem to notice me in the beginning as I was looking around. There were many many rooms, all decorated very tastefully. She still had her Christmas tree up because she is Maureen Johnson and she loves Christmas. The tree was far too big for the normal height ceiling and bent over (Think Elf). Then Maureen came out to greet me and asked me what I thought and I told her it was amazing. Then she took me to her favourite room, the Entrance Hall. It was about 50 yards long, sloped, with wood flooring and had a nice arched french door with wood paneling in the front. She took me to the top and showed me why it was her favourite room by running down and sliding on her stomach like a penguin all the way to the end. Then we did that for a while until Creature from 8A came and complained about the noise. Then I woke up.

THE END! : ) Have a good day!

Sarah Badger said...

That song reminds me of Paper Towns. It gives me the urge to create a highly choreographed music video version of the novel.

Also: yay blogging.

Tamar N said...

Yay! I just started reading your blog a couple of months ago or so and when I finally got to your most recent post(other than this one, I guess), I was so sad because I needed a new one! I'm not going to say how many times I checked because that would actually be embarrassing. Anywho, I'm happy that you're happy and that you're blogging again!

Also, when you were talking about going with "the flow" and which way "the flow" was going, I totally thought you were secretly referencing your period. Jus' sayin.

partyweetow said...

First off, I'm SUPER glad you're blogging again! Secondly, I tried Chipotle for the first time the other week, and I gotta say, I don't get the obsessive appeal. I had chicken tacos, though, not a burrito, so maybe that has something to do with it? Dunno.

Michelle said...

Glad to see you are back.
Although we have missed you it's great to hear that you are happy and that life is going well.

Snottlebie said...

Hayley's back! WOO!

Yeah, I'm "new". I read some *cough* all *cough* of your previous posts and simply became...er...obsessed with the blog. Hey, it's good writing!

I was waiting for a new post to comment so thank you for continuing to blog! You actually inspired me to start my own blog (which may or may not be slightly neglected although that is due to hw overload, hehe...).

Whoo, long comment response. Anywhoodle: I'm glad you're back. And that you're happy. Always a good thing.

Anonymous said...

you have no idea how happy i am that you're back. this just made my day. no, my year (so far ;) )
<3

Annie said...

:)

Ida Ruda said...

Hell fucking yeah! Nice to see a post, lovin' it, lovin it!

Wow, now I have stared at the screen for 5 minutes and I still can't come up with something witty or, well anything at all really, to write.

Oh! I've got to thank you for introducing me to Glee. When watching the pilot I was VERY skeptical and didn't really like it. But now, ah, amazing epic awesomeness! Feel the excitement! I most definitely have a girl crush on Lea Michele. Mark Salling isn't that bad either I guess.

There, nice and long (haha) comment. Love you long time, in a non-stalker way!

Catharine said...

I've always felt really, I don't know, hypocritical, I guess, about being annoyed when people who I follow on the internet (Wow, that sounds creepy. I'll assume you know what I mean.) take a break from providing updates. Because it's like "I think you're awesome, yet I don't think you should be the judge of what's the best thing for you right now." So I have told myself that Hayley is certainly fine and will blog when she wants to and it will be great. And you did! And it is! So basically, my point is, I'm glad you're back.

Megan said...

I'm not going to lie, this kind of just made my day. It's nice to see that you're so happy because that's how I feel right now. Sometimes things just kind of... work, you know? I also learned a little fun fact over winter break too. It turns out that there's only one degree of separation between you and myself. Actually I felt like a total stalker when I found that out, but really I'm just friends with someone you went to high school with. So don't worry, you won't find me creeping around your town... or backyard...

Coralinehope said...

Good for you for taking a break. I may have missed these blogs, but -this comment as living proof- I survived.
Also, Ben and Regina are my two top favorite artists, so when I found this song... it became the love of my life. (Warning: it will eventually get tiresome.)
I hope the good spell continues!

alimarie_11 said...

i'mmmm happpy you have everything together, and that your happy, though i did feel kinda lost without your posts and was beginning to accept there end :(
but its more important to take care of yourself than to fill in your 'fans'

Katie said...

Glad to be reading your non-adventures again, kiddo. :) And thanks for introducing me to entirely new worlds for me today...sexy piano men (Ben Folds and Mike Lombardo) and Jason Mraz sing opera?! That was why my day was awesome. :D

elizbee said...

I am so glad you're back! I always looked forward to reading your blog, but I totally understand why you took a break. It's probably something I should have done at some point but I just kept making up lame excuses in short little posts. Luckily I'm over that stage, but I think a hiatus would have been a good idea. Also, Ben Folds is my favorite artist, so I 110% agree that he is sexy. Welcome back :)

Marlena said...

Glad you're back, love. Missed you.<3
Also, I've definitely been listening to Ben Folds for about two straight hours before reading this blog. He's good essay-writing material, which is what I've been doing. He's also good everything material.

Maria said...

You're back! Yay! It's so great that you're happy. :)

Krazy_4_Kelly said...

I am sooo glad that you're back! You seriously brighten up my day when I'm able to come back to my room and see you have a new blog post or video. However, I'm glad you took a break and didn't continue writing just for our benefit. We enjoy when you're happy and if not blogging for a few months and having a bit of privacy does that, I can respect that.

Anyways, I hope your semester (quarter, is it called there?) is going well and I can't wait to hear stories about your classes and your life in general =)

And tell your friend we're thinking of her even though we don't know which friend it is for sure/what is wrong; I hope she keeps getting better.

Anonymous said...

Hayley, you know as much of you as you did put out there to the vast seeming void, the one filled with stars -- rock stars, stage stars, future published stars, and who knows, maybe actual stars (their planets, their inhabitants; I digress) -- there's still so much of your framework left supporting this wonder we know as Hayley, that it's hard to imagine coming close to knowing it all. Wonders have been explored fully and we still *wonder* and marvel at their existence. You're one of those.

KatOfDiamonds said...

This is one of my favorite posts ever.

In fact it is going on my Fav Blog List Links on my own blog. Yup!

Basically I love your talent with words and explaining things.

Can I grow up to be like you? [I'm 23]

inkstainedpages said...

Yay, today is awesome because Hayley's back! :)

JustAGirl said...

yay i'm so glad you're back! i've missed your daily non adventure blog posts.

I absolutely love that song! one of my favorite of all time!

Arden said...

It feels weird to have missed someone who I don't know in person, but I really missed your blog posts. So I'm happy you're back, yay! :)

KatOfDiamonds said...

ps. Because of you I started a Chipotle counter since it just made sense and felt like a missing piece was filled ;o)

Chipotle burritos this year: 5 [I realize there has only been 11 days. This is my normal] So THANKS for the idea!

Amanda said...

I squealed so loudly when I saw this that I woke up my parents! I'm so happy you're back and I'm even more happy that you're loving life! We missed you like crazy! (=

Britty said...

I'm really happy you are back. It was a long time without your personal brand of sunshine in my life. I understand the needing to take some personal time to just be Hayley without all of the internet.

I'm just glad you are back. You are awesome.

nicole. said...

be honest. you came back so john would name his kid after you. hahahaha. glad you're back!

usernamessuckfully said...

yay crazies back im glad u had nothing to complain about and if u ever were an english teacher it would probly be the only class id stay awake in haha

VicMorrowsGhost said...

I have your blog in my "check everyday" folder. I was so sick of reading how harry potter changed your life. :P

Glad you're back.

Elizabeth... said...

Even if this does sound like the other 80+ comments, I AM glad you're back to blogging.

:D

Cece said...

Yay! Hayley! I'm really glad the break was good for you and that you're so happy :]
However, I missed reading about your so-called 'non-adventures' very much. It's great to have you blogging again, THAT is why today is awesome. <4

Tenley Nadine said...

I'm glad your back, and I'm glad your life is going so well.

Maddy said...

Hayley! I am so, so happy that you are back and that you are doing well and life is good. You're a wonderful person and you totally deserve it and this post just made me happy even though I have the flu. DFTBA (not that you would) :) <3

Jo said...

I'm so happy that you're back, winter break was very boring without your witty writing.
And you're crazy, but who's not? :)

Catherine said...

I'm happy you're back, but also happy you took a break too. It's nice to hear that everything's going well for you. You have no idea how many times I thought to myself "Today, the day. Hayley will finally be back." only to log on and see you haven't written yet. But it's a good feeling. It's like reconnecting with a friend after you've had a fight and haven't spoken in a while. Just want to say it's good to have you back.

Also it's good to hear your friend is doing well after whatever happened. I'll be keeping her in my thoughts. =)

VTBurninator said...

Def choked on my apple re: "putting glue on my face."

Sidenote: A lady use to go to our church that looked just like that actress. My sister and I use to pantomime putting glue on our face/dancing with blocks strung around our necks in an attempt to make the other person laugh during sermons.

SigneHansen said...

Yay! Hayley's back! And also.. It's perfect timing - I just got my computer back, so I wouldn't have been able to read your blog anyway ;)
And: Now I have I've got nothing (chartjackers) on my brain.. Just because you said that in the end.. *Rant over*

Lydia said...

Yay you're back. This is why today is awesome for me :D

John said...

I just crapped my pants with LOVE, HAPPINESS and JOY!!!

Thank you...nuff said

oomboo2 said...

I'm so glad your back. I've been checking this page nearly everyday for the past two months.

Can you believe how many comments you already have? I hope you feel loved.

omgitslouise said...

Yay! I'm so glad you're back, I've missed your blogs! And congratulations on having 96 comments already, haha! :) <3

Cece said...

Oh, hah, and by the way...I've already had 5 Chipotle burritos this year :D

J O D I E said...

Sorry to hear about what ever terrible thing happened to your friend. I hope she's doing well. I'm glad you're back and that you had a nice break from everything xx

Hope said...

YAY YOU'RE BACK!!! I have really missed you! And I totally understand your obsession with "You Don't Know Me". It is an awesome song :D <3

thebrookereview said...

I'm really glad your back!!! I'm also really glad your doing so well :D

lauraxceleste said...

I'm less worried about your lack of blog posts, and more worried about you only eating one burrito this year. We're twelve days in, for Pete's sake! I must have had at least twenty-one at this point.

Also, speaking of burritos: today my Spanish teacher was trying to give us a way to remember the Spanish word for "boring," and she said
"It's burrido. Because burritos are boring."
I thought of you, and also gave her what I'd like to think of as a piercing glare.

I'm so glad you're back! :D

ifmemoryserves said...

YOU'RE BACK! Glad to hear that you're doing well, Hayley.

Sarah said...

So so so glad you're back Hayley! I know I am one of those random fans from the internet that don't actually know you, but I really do enjoy reading about your "non-adventures" (pfft hehe) and watching your vids on 5AG and your personal channel!! Anyway glad you're back :)

courtkraw said...

I always check your blog as a habit, but never expect to see an update. So today I actually said "wow!" outloud when I saw the update.
I'm happy that you're happy.
After christmas I started watching the office & today I finished the fourth season... so now I need to backtrack to re-read your comments on the show.

Jen said...

Glad to see you are back! Listen...don't get too hung up on whether or not you are intro/extro. I'm an introvert that is very socially outgoing. I just need to recharge alone, while extroverts recharge from being with people. Over simplified maybe, but it has little to do with what most people think, ie. shy, quiet types vs. crazy, funny blogger types :)

Anonymous said...

I thought you were dead!? Didn't you die!? WTF!? I was in tears when I found out...but you're alive now!? omg

waffleshouse said...

I totally get what you are saying about not knowing if you are intro or extroverted I can be both, the person who makes parties all the more fun or sit at my laptop and listen to music and read all day. one of the things i want to try is to write a review for every book I read this b/c I feel like sometimes I am to passive of a reader and just constantly consume books w/o giving anything back so you could do something like Hayley's book corner. I know pretty much all of your readers trust your opinion's when it comes to literture.

I'm really happy that you're back!!!
Let me tell you that It's great that you don't write if you don't feel like, because we wanna hear what you got to say...and if you have written when you didn't feel like we would have read just empty words.
Thanks Hayley!!
It's Awesome that you're back!<3

Hayley, we've never met, we almost assuredly never will, but your writing is inspiring. I'm ecstatic that you are back. I write in my blog significantly less frequently than you or Kristina, but I've been trying, and your absence/ reappearance has given me a lot, in an odd sense. Thanks!

I inclination not concur on it. I think precise post. Expressly the designation attracted me to review the unscathed story.

I'm glad you're back too! And I think you should know that today at lunch, we discussed (1) that you posted two new blogs and (2)the piano man, as we shall call him. And you should also know that Tad protested both conversations as being too intrusive. WhatEV.

Hayley, you can be both a introvert and extrovert. We learned in my psych class that a person is never really entirely one or the other. A person can have traits from both :).

Hi Dr. Lametu,I contacted you in regards of my lover. He no longer wants to associate with the other woman anymore. He left her and came back to me and it was like a miracle to me and i couldn't believe it. But he came back and appologised to me and even promised to divorce his wife and marry me. Dr. Lametu i promise you that once he marry me, i will buy you a car as a special present just to show you how grateful iam. Thank you once again! Ancientspiritualtemple@gmail.com
