I Want You. I Think.


unnamed

I’m smart. I’m bad at math and horrible at grammar, but I’m smart. And I’ve learned a lot in the past year. Most important, that nothing means anything unless you communicate it up front. When a man tells you that he doesn’t know what he wants, he definitely means he doesn’t want you. There may be rare exceptions, but I wouldn’t suggest you hold your breath in hopes of becoming one of them.

I don’t do well with options. Have you ever seen me at Target? I damn near had an aneurism at the Frozen Kuhsterd truck last week because I couldn’t pick between thai tea kuhsterd with condensed milk and corn flakes, or spiked cereal milk with siracha burnt caramel sauce and peanuts. Oh wait, is that a silvana ice-cream sandwich? You better quit playing …

Sometimes I can be indecisive (I swear only sometimes). I want to go back to New York, but I want to stay in SF. I want to pursue my writing, but I want to get more into events. Orrr do I want to do broadcast journalism instead? I want to go to Coachella, but need to go to Cancun for a wedding.

Then there’s him. Can I picture us actually together? I don’t know. What if we get to know each other and he ends up annoying the shit out of me? What if two months into it, I meet someone else? Do I want to just hang in there and have fun? Take it for what it is until it isn’t anymore? Or do I want to just quit while I’m ahead? Before it’s too late?

I don’t fucking know. I almost never know what I want. But I do know he doesn’t want me. I do know that if I continue to stay, I’ll just be hurting myself. And I definitely DON’T want that.

YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP. YOU ARE THE DIRECTOR OF YOUR SHOW. How it took decades for me to truly grasp this simple idea is beyond me, but I’m so glad I finally not only understand it, but also

I once heard someone say that "A bright flame burns twice as fast," and it's haunted me ever since. Why does it have to be this way? I never had a whirlwind romance before. You know, the kind where it
