Writer's Club Weekly Prompt 4/29/2011



This week’s prompts
#1 I am human, which makes me complex. Name five things about yourself that may drive other people crazy. 
#2 Did you ever date anyone you met online? Do tell……
#3- List six reason why you need him/her.  
#4- Becoming a teenager is difficult. Write a letter to your 13 year-old self.


So I couldn't decide which one to pick so I am going to do them both... (#1 and #2)


#1
I could list so many things about  me that drive people crazy, well I think they drive people crazy...
First off I know that my clutter drives my husband crazy, he doesn't understand it at all. Some days I don't understand it either but it is me. I am cluttered and if it wasn't for an organziner and an online calendar I would be scatter brained as well..  I'm sure that for some people I see very relaxed and almost passive when it comes to my kids, but  then ask my husband and he would say I'm not passive that I need to let them have a little more space... Balance that is all I can think of and trying to obtain it every day is harder than it seems.  Some people think I am too involved in the online communiity, well I'm sorry if that offends you; I am a people person and have found that interacting and learning from people online works well for me. I have been blessed to find some wonderful people online that I might never have met otherwise.  Finally some people feel I hold back and am non confrontational. Well, guess what I am! unless of course I am writing and can think about what I want to say... I tend to censor my words before I say them to find what I pray is the right thing to say before I say it.


#2. Did you ever date someone you met online? Yes I did...  We met in a chat room on AOL (back in the day that was social networking.). For almost a year we emailed back and forth, IM'd each other whenever we were online, and began talking on the phone (I think it had been about 6 months).  The end of December '96 we finally "met", I flew to Salt Lake City, Utah where he and his Dad picked me up and drove back to Wyoming. We spent about a week together and then planned several other visits (he came here , I went back to Wyoming). I can say  we had a real good run at it until I couldn't handle it anymore. Do I regret an online relationship and a long distance relationship , No. Would I recommend it to anyone else, depends on the person.
