I'm me, what can I say?

The ' Lounge ' option disappeared - is this going to be considered the NRR spot ?? Only one way to find out , eh ?

 

So if the end of The Loop on RW felt like the last day of summer camp , it seems fitting that this fresh start in the ' new ' Loop should feel like the first few days of a new school year . Everyone is all excited to see each other , catching up on what we all did over the summer break , checking out who is wearing the latest new fashions ...  

I was never one to be in just one clique in high school , or college for that matter - I kind of got along with pretty much everyone . Thank god social media wasn ' t a thing back then though . Kids could be mean enough in person , I don ' t envy the youth of today having to deal with cyber bullying and the such . So imagine my surprise when I realize my reaction to having been unfriended on FB - by a few people - all of which were / are Loopsters . At first I was all like   :( . But then I was all pffffffffffft - whatevs .  It ' s kind of embarrassing though -  I ' m approaching the big five - oh soon , and I feel like I ' ve reverted back to being a teenager and my feelings are all hurt ' cuz I didn ' t get a Valentine from everyone in class .

Now , don ' t get me wrong - I know I ' ve never met a majority of you , and those I have met in person were way back at the first Philly LoopFest and it was only for a few hours . So you really don ' t know me from Adam . But I guess when I dropped out of sight after my mom passed away and my feet issues stopped me from running , the fact that I wasn ' t contributing led to that click of the button . I know there were times when my only posts were on the negative side , but hey - it ' s what I was going through at the time . I ' m not one of those people who only shares the ' unicorn pooping sunshine ' stuff in life . That ' s not real life . Not mine anyways . ( p . s . - who else now thinks we need a unicorn - pooping - sunshine emoji ?!?)

I don ' t want others to feel like they can ' t be real with me . If you ' re having a shitty day , say it . It won ' t rain on my parade . Sometimes a good old fashioned rant is necessary . And it doesn ' t necessarily mean that I ' m looking for any response . I don ' t need to be coddled . And sometimes , quiet is just as good . Maybe sitting by myself in the cafeteria and reading a book during lunch is just what I need at the particular time . It doesn ' t mean that you have to try to come over and cheer me up , but it also doesn ' t mean that I want to be avoided or not be friends any more . 

Maybe I ' m just being childish - WAH - someone unfriended me - boo hoo . And if so , then so be it . But who doesn ' t feel that way now and again ? I ' m just one of those people who says it out loud . By now that shouldn ' t surprise most of you . Old age = less filter and less   :poo:given about it . ( Holy moly - the emojis are big enough that I don ' t even need my glasses to see ' em !)

And now I have no idea where in the heck I was going with this whole thing . What can I say - I ' m blonde and I ' m not getting any younger . 

I guess what I ' m trying to say ( besides thanks for hanging in there if you read this far ) is that I ' m not going anywhere .  I may not comment , etc . on every little thing , and I can ' t guarantee I won ' t disappear from time to time . But I ' m also not going to apologize for it and I ' m certainly not going to let myself feel offended ( anymore ) if someone decides to ' pull the trigger ' because of it . 

With that being said - can I sit with you guys at lunch today ?

Me ! Me ! Please sit with me ! I ' ve been unfriended by Loopsters , too . I figured I was too slow .

And don ' t worry about that " big " five - oh . My five - ohs were the greatest , except for the injury and the past year and a half . And that part wasn ' t age - related , although perhaps the slow recovery has been .

How do you know when someone unfriends you on fb ? Do you get a notification ?

Sitting at my table to eat ? We ' ve done that - you ' re always welcome to sit with me ! And drinks afterwards ? Any time my friend !! You are one of the best people ( and most awesome drinking buddies ) I ' ve ever met - inside or outside of the loop ! Big Mooooose hug !  B|

I ' m actually not all that worried about 50 . I can ' t say that I don ' t shudder a bit at the thought though every now and then !

p . s . - I rather enjoyed being slow during my runs ! Everything else in life goes so fast - I liked taking in everything around me and literally stopping to smell the flowers .  :)

Whenever that was , it ' s too long ago ! I think it was 2013 anyway . For what it ' s worth , the Allman Brothers are a staple of my driving Spotify playlist - thanks to you !

Hey ! I entrusted you with a VERY personal secret ! ( just between the two of us , my stash is at an all - time high :  choco   m & m ' s , Caramel m & m ' s , British toffees , etc - and my current BMI reflects that )

In our final school year , in the   yearbook , everyone gets a few lines written about them . Mine said "... is the silent sporting type ". That was it !!! Must have made a big impression on all my school colleagues haha ... needless to say I didn ' t waste too much of my school life trying to smooch with the " cool kids ".

I appreciate posts that aren ' t unicorns and rainbows ( wherever the rainbow is coming from   xD). Life is messy . I also appreciate the happy posts because who doesn ' t like to be happy for others . But we need both !

Older yes - but so far not a whole lot has pointed to wiser , hahaha  

My sports chiro is emphatic when he says he is going to fix me . According to him , the fascia in between my toes is sooooooooo tight , it ' s just pulling everything out of whack , hence the images on my last x - rays where you can see some of my metatarsal bones are actually crooked . My 3 ( now ) former podiatrists may have been partially correct with their bursitis mumblings - the tight fascia pulling things even closer would cause even more rubbing and boom - bursitis . BUT none of them ever went any farther to find out what was causing the friction . They just fit me for orthotics and held their hands out each time I had to come back for revisions because the inserts weren ' t helping . Took my sports chiro 5 minutes of manipulating my feet to figure it all out . The sessions with him are painful as all get out ( I ' m running out of safe words , bwahahahaha !) but I find myself not wearing my Kinesio Tape as often and am able to pad around my apartment barefoot more . I will prolly still need inserts but they will be for keeping everything aligned once he gets things back to as normal as he can .

You always sound like the real deal when you write . The people who always use the polite speak and just say what they feel is acceptable to everyone in general are not being true to there personality and it becomes quite boring . I ' ve always enjoyed your views !
