About Me

A single girl in San Diego. Living the life and trying to make sense of it all. Posting it here for your enjoyment, and for my sanity. Because a little bit of typing is cheaper than a whole lot of therapy.

I’m busy pretending to be an adult.

I’m busy pretending that I don’t think every car I see is you. or you.

I’m busy pretending that I understand my friendships of the past, and where they are headed.

I’m busy pretending I can afford this. and that.

I’m busy pretending I can go with the flow.

I’m busy pretending to be me. who that actually is, I have no clue.

I’m busy pretending that didn’t hurt.

and I am busy pretending to not look for you.

    Hey I like your blog. The title is clever.

    Thanks so much. The title came out of nowhere, but is a genuine reflection of how I feel most of the time.

    at least you are honest to yourself. Admitting your faults and your step forward to better person.

    A process of learning I guess.

    I’d like to agree with the above poster: clever indeed!

    Mahua & mmbanana: I don’t think I have ever been called clever in my life- I think I like it! Just don’t hold your breath for my next clever moment to strike.

    Deva- Awesome, thanks. I really use this blog as a journal of sorts, and if it isn’t honest, well then, it wouldn’t be right. p.s. still freaking looking!

    Coincidentally, i just wrote a song yesterday all about pretending, to be okay. and things. and stuff.

      Did you put your song on your blog? Do you have a blog, lol? I should have looked before asking. Either way- you should. 🙂

    I believe we are all pretenders. For who can live in truth and be accepted? Besides the Dali Lama… if only. One day we shall be free, until then, I like you, am busy pretending… though you seem to do it more gracefully and truthfully than most 🙂

      Agreed. Mostly I feel like I am pretending to be normal, trying to accept the fact that I am better if I don’t.
