Unlucky 13

Image from Wondermark.com I have never been in a relationship on Valentine’s Day. For years, I pined away after girls or dropped notes from “a secret admirer” on doorsteps, but it never led to anything. There were times when I was upset and sad, wondering while life was unfair; why jerks, douchebags and assholes always […]

Just One Slowdance – Part II

13 February, 2009 (06:50) | Unlucky 13, Women | 2 comments

For context, read Just One Slowdance – Part I Image by Olga. Being a wallflower isn’t an easy life, especially when you’ve botched the flower part as badly as I have. Realistically, I am to flowers what a monster truck are to sedans, and you can stick that in your SATs and cram it. Somehow […]

Just One Slowdance – Part I

12 February, 2009 (06:43) | Unlucky 13, Women | No comments

Image by Lawrence Ipsum. I don’t dance. Ever. Period. Except when no one’s around. I actually do dance then, but it’s not really dancing. And it’s a little unfortunate seeing as I took ballroom dancing classes in early high school. Of course, I didn’t go to ballroom classes because I wanted to learn to dance. […]

Celestial Rings – Part II

11 February, 2009 (13:10) | Unlucky 13, Women | No comments

For context, read Celestial Rings – Part I. Sometimes it’s hard to tell by appearance alone what the truth is. Not everyone wearing a Yankees hat is a New Yorker, not everyone wearing a dress is a woman, and not everyone wearing a ring on their finger is married. At least that’s what the Internet […]

Celestial Rings – Part I

10 February, 2009 (08:33) | Unlucky 13, Women | 4 comments

In high school, I didn’t really date. I had awkward relationships that were never quite defined, crushes on women who either rejected me outright or kept me waiting until I gave up, and short flurries of physicality that were wonderful, yet left a sour taste in my mouth soon enough after. Asking girls out I […]

Foreign Exchange – Part V

9 February, 2009 (06:47) | Unlucky 13, Women | No comments

For context, read Foreign Exchange – Part I, Foreign Exchange – Part II, Foreign Exchange – Part III, and Foreign Exchange – Part IV. LoveBite, the hickey machine. “It’s unthinkable not to love— you’d have a severe nervous breakdown.” – Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) Beneath the table, I could feel the note wrinkling in my sweaty […]

Foreign Exchange – Part IV

8 February, 2009 (06:27) | Unlucky 13, Women | No comments

For context, read Foreign Exchange – Part I, Foreign Exchange – Part II, and Foreign Exchange – Part III. Image by John Osgood. “I had become, with the approach of night, once more aware of loneliness and time – those two companions without whom no journey can yield us anything.” – Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) It’s […]

Foreign Exchange – Part III

7 February, 2009 (10:54) | Unlucky 13, Women | No comments

For context, read Foreign Exchange – Part I, and Foreign Exchange – Part II. “The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time… love lavished on absolute fools. Love’s a charity ward, you know.” – Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) There was no doubt he was a pretty […]

Foreign Exchange – Part II

For context, read Foreign Exchange – Part I. “History is an endless repetition of the wrong way of living.” – Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) There are plenty of people who have written about the “Friend Zone” and the problems therein. There are essays by men (many, many essays), essays by women (a few), an instruction manual […]

Foreign Exchange – Part I

Image by CloudDust. “Music was invented to confirm human loneliness.” -Lawrence Durrell (1912-1990) The above is a quote from Lawrence Durrell. I’m not sure I’ve ever read anything else by him. I’m not even sure who he is or was. That wouldn’t be quite so embarrassing if it weren’t the quote situated next to my […]
