So I’m going to start something on my blog, and I’m going to call it Memories. The above two pictures are from late April / early May of last year. It was when I was dating a girl named Jeannie that I met on here, and we actually got to meet. We had many kisses and such before this, but these were two pictures we took when we both knew we wanted each other. Not long after this, the relationship fell apart, first because of her parents, then because of other issues. I spent a lot of time loathing this girl in the aftermath, and everyone tells me I had plenty of reasons to - that I shouldn’t care. But deep down a part of me still does. I do still miss that relationship, that closeness we had. I felt close to her. I was so shocked when she left. But I loved her though. Fiercely. And getting to show her that is by far one of my greatest memories. I thought I lost these photos when I deleted my blog before, but I did some digging around on other sites and found them. I really don’t want to lose them again, so I’m putting them back on here now. The love and the connections you see in these photos were very real at the time. I could feel it and I could almost reach out to touch it. It was one of the best weeks of my life. The song “Seven Days A Thousand Times” by Lee Brice makes me lose it every time, just because of how dead on it is. The mountains, the fact that it was dark and rainy the entire time I was up there, my first kiss, the fact that it was actually 7 days, and it was just an amazing experience. Sometimes I wish I could go back. Last year was a rough year for me - I lost a lot and fought a lot of hard battles. So far, 2014 has been good to me. I hope it continues as such.
To clarify: me and this girl are no longer dating, we don’t even talk anymore. But I just felt like storing some memories for later (and to prove that I have at least been kissed lol :P).
I encourage everyone else to do something like this too. Not necessarily a kiss picture per se, but to store your memories as I have begun doing. They’re an amazing thing to look back on later, and they make great stories, because there’s one in every picture. I have two pictures of the mountains as well that I will post next. It was a truly wonderful week until the end and then it just got emotionally and mentally painful. But it taught me a lot. It opened my eyes to a few things. And though I may have lost a few battles in my life, the war is far from over, and I know I’m on the right side.
Which side are you on?
