I was once told by an interview councilor that if an interviewer asks you if you'd like a cup of tea or water, you should say yes because it makes them feel good to offer you some service. It provides some connection between you and the interviewer to grow from...

Hmm... reminds me of my mother..

Yes! I often have to remind myself of this.

Your years of submission to Collin combined with "Nutella-man" certainly left some scars...

Thank you, Arden, for once again managing to articulate the thoughts that I've always had, but was never fully aware of enough to express. (If that makes sense?) It's just so second nature for me to get inside a boy's mind and give him everything that I can to make him happy. It's a trait of mine that I could never live my life without. It takes work, but at the same time, it's always so much more of a joy than a burden. I definitely derive more pleasure from pleasing him than I do from having the attention directed back on myself. My girl friends (and parents!) just don't understand how I can spend so much time caught up in the details of another person, doing every little thing that I can to put a smile on his face and light up his world. I actually don't have any huge problems being taken care of in return, but I still prefer being the caretaker. Anyway, all non-constructive rambling aside, I adore reading your blog and finding such a kindred spirit for the side of myself that is less mild-mannered and more relationship-centric. I love finding my feelings in your words, especially since I live in an area where not many others share my views. You are a rock star.


I subscribe to what you are saying, however ponder the fact that what you are describing reflects the traditional "caregiver model" of female, justified by a need for personal independence as opposed to compliance to socio-cultural norms, but still confirming the neo-classical biological gender model.

Val - That is a way smarter way than I had ever thought of putting it! :)

I used to be able to find good info from your articles.


Would you be excited by exchanging links?


Why do I get the vague feeling you might be an Enneagram type Two?..


Hurrah! In the end I got a weblog from where I know how to actually obtain valuable facts
concerning my study and knowledge.

After you first contact a journey school, they will lay out the red carpet for you. You will get a tour in the facilities including the classrooms and also the airplanes to be used in your in flight training. You will meet wonderful instructors and also the end of the tour may include a test flight where you get to sit in the pilot's seat as though you're actually flying that plane. That experience alone might hook you to plan to be part of their course. Then they will present you may some colorful brochures, a contract and a class schedule lastly, a schedule of costs in addition to payment options.

When some one searches for his vital thing, thus he/she wishes to be available that
in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.


These are actually enormous ideas in on the topic of blogging.

You have touched some good points here. Any way keep
up wrinting.


I had a pair of bonded bunny rabbits for… about 10 years. When the female Ashley was nearing the end of her life, she lost the use of her hind legs. She was the more social of the two. Very sassy. She’d always go first when trying a new thing and let her husbunnd know if it was safe. Her husbunny Owen adored her above any other living thing. She frequently chased him down and showered him with lots of kisses.

Towards the end of her life when she had trouble getting around, I expected that Owen would be sweeter to her. That he’d groom her more. What I noticed though was that their dynamic was the same, if not more seemingly one sided. Ashley groomed him more. She couldn’t chase him down for kisses as she did in her more limber years, but he would come and sit quietly next to her and allow her to love on him.

Rabbits have taught me many things over the years. One of the things that these two bunnies taught me is that it is a gift to receive.
