I have a blog, but there's something about writing here that is pretty damn cathartic.  Maybe it's that I don't have many followers, or that I'm leaving this alias behind.  Those who are interested in reading this are probably aware of this alias and my current one, which is closer to who I am.  This alias was beginning to blend in with the other, anyway.  I like my anonymity, but it's a little draining keeping everything separate.

I want to write about friendship, today.  I've written about it before, but life is weighing on me, now.  At my age, it seems society thinks I'm a slut for not having children and spending every waking moment doting over my husband.  Instead, I have very good friends in an awesome community we've built together.  One of these very good friends is my husband.  He is strong, self-sufficient, solitary, and he appreciates the balance I bring to his life.  I am also strong and self-sufficient, but I need people in my life.  While he is dumping years of his life into this career so that we have a good life later on, what am I supposed to be doing?  According to society, read the third sentence in this paragraph.

I have my own projects, and I care very deeply for people.  I worry over some friends more than others, and certain people find it alarming that I never complain about my husband.  I tell them about his career, which I find fascinating, and their attention wanders.  I tell them about a friend who's constantly setting figurative fires, and they whisper about how I'm spending too much time with that friend.  They construct their own narratives about what must really be going on.

I talk to my husband about this problem, and though he says that it's their problem for having dishonorable thoughts about us, he sees how it is also my problem.  He sees how much it hurts, being branded with a scarlet letter.  He knows that if I were the one working his hours, and if he were the one driving our community, I'd still be branded because what am I really doing while I claim to be working those long hours?

A few of hour friends have apologized for the trouble, but I've told them that it isn't their fault.  One of our friends laughed at the dishonorable ideas these poor souls are having, because it's clear to everyone in our community that I have no such interest in anyone but my husband.  It's sad that my unwavering devotion to him is unfathomable to so many, but I'll feel bad for them after resentment has passed.  At present, I'm angry that they're being petty just because they're unhappy in their own relationships.

Cleaning out my groups.  I can't keep up with all that I could, ten years ago.
I just cleaned out ~400 notification stacks. ^^;

I'm far from perfect. I have good days and bad days, make mistakes, and try my best to learn from them.

I dislike the phrase "these days", because often times, "these days" are not much different than "the old days".


Stuff to Ponder

If PRO is the opposite of CON, does that make the opposite of "constitution"..."prostitution"? chzmemebase.files.wordpress.co…

A teacher teaches, a baker bakes, a weaver weaves, a widower...

Odd how "mothering a child" and "fathering a child" do not have even the remotest similarity in meaning.


GRAMMAR LESSON

Thus = Therefore
Hence ≠ Therefore
I love the Packers thus hence the gear.

VERB + ing = GERUND


WORDS I DESPISE

effeminate
emasculate
femininity (it sounds like one is stuttering)
heroine (it's a drug, not a person)
mistress (when used to mean "woman with whom I am cheating on my wife")
Mrs. (what is the longhand of this word? where did the R go? what is the point of this word? where's the masculine equivalent?)
tomboy
widower
"reverse racism" (wouldn't reverse racism be the anti racism?)

WAHG!  Have I seriously been away from dA for so long? :noes:

The life thing keeps happening, and it keeps happening so much in ways that cut into my creative happy time.  In any case, over a month later, thank you for the birthday wishes. :)

Just be more focused on life. It's way healthier and way better. While you have time for art, it should be fine.
