The Purtiest Pictures of Me Ever Taken

I was actually attempting to document how I had done my hair (I had put it up with bobby pins that have roses on the ends), and I ended up taking the best pictures of myself I've ever seen (probably 'cuz they don't look much like me, or at least, you can't really see my face in them very well).

Just thought I'd share.

(Btw, you can see my horribly messy room in the States in the background. Notice the empty frame for my BA degree. The degree itself is in a pile of papers somewhere....)

Abby, you are one of the loveliest people I know. Those pictures are gorgeous.

And I totally relate on the romance front. I've been uncharacteristically cynical about all of that bullshit lately. A couple of months ago, my older brother and I were trying to pinpoint why I don't date, and all I could come up with was, "Uh...I don't meet anyone to date??" My brother concluded that I'm too smart and independent to be attracted to most people my age. I concluded that my standards are just impossibly high; I consider dating a waste of time unless I can see someone clicking with me on every single level. :P So I guess that means I'm screwed. Oh well! I'd rather be by myself than settle for someone who doesn't resonate with me. :)

But yes...when I watch sappy chick flicks, sometimes I think, "I wish I meant that much to someone. I wish I were some wonderful boy's world, and that he were mine." When I finally do "find the right person" (AAAGGGHGHH! ::makes face::), I'll let myself fall in love. I am very loving and passionate; I just have an especially tough shell that most can't crack. (And the aforementioned unrealistic expectations. Heh.)

I don't worry about it, though, and I don't think you need to either. I think the best things happen to us when we're least expecting them. Just enjoy life, enjoy being the wonderful lady that you are, and forget about the rest!

Thank you! ::mad blushing::

I *totally* know what you mean about not wanting to bother with people who don't click in every way up front. "Why should I bother dating someone who isn't good enough when I could be spending quality time with my friends or myself?"

Yeah, normally I don't think about it, but chick flicks bring out the...well...the chick in me, and it makes me all sappy-weepy.

You are an amazing lady, too! I wish I were actually in town more often so I could just hang out with you and spend some quality one-on-one time with you. When I'm home for Xmas (assuming you'll be in Nashville), we need to go out for lunch or something. My treat! I just feel like when I'm home it's, "Argh, spend-as-much-time-with-everyone-as-you-can-so-you-don't-miss-a-single-moment-of-timewithfriendsness-dammit!" and it's all getting everybody in at once, rather than spending any quality time with individuals. I need to stop doing that because I don't feel like my relationships with the Nashvegas crew have developed much in the past 5 years. Actually, lj has given me more insight into my friends and their lives than actual time with them has, which is kind sad. So, long story short, let's set a lunch date if you're free!

I feel the same way! Whenever I hang out with you, I think, "I really need more Abby in my life. I wish I knew her better!"

It would help if I actually posted in my livejournal, but alas...I cannot bring myself to do it. :)

I will indeed be in Nashville over Christmas. I'd love to have lunch!
