1) I remember you telling me about them and figured they had something to do with this. What can you do, though, right?
2) I remember him too, you posted a bit about him. He's ugly as shit, fat, pathetic, and stupid. I don't understand how girls get guilted into feeling bad about fellows like him after they've been apart for ages. But then again, I don't know how they wind up dating in the first place, so.
3) This is where it gets interesting. I remember AP, but I moved to Canada before I ever considered taking any such courses. Given the chance I probably wouldn't have anyway, but uh anyway this isn't about me, it's about her and I'd like to talk about her for a moment.
She's got a lot to do and I'm just wondering how mature she is, really. The word maturity has always had a painful sting for me, because it was tossed around a lot in my middle school and early high school years that I was really immature and that was something for a lot of kids to go on, so I've never liked to revisit those terms, but since (don't worry this is going to swing back to Taylor) I've been in university I find myself revisiting them nonetheless when trying to make sense of the surroundings and it's struck me that many people are actually rather immature about lots of things. Stress ties into that and I just wonder about someone who's got so much going on in her life that when it comes time to cut something out, she cuts out love. It's pretty indicative of a somewhat immature psyche. I don't know if people are taught enough to take things in stride. I can't claim to be a really mature individual without sounding like a complete buffoon but it seems to me that what she needs to do is to stop for just a minute and filter out what she really wants in her life. She's what, 17? 18? She doesn't need to be stressed out. She needs to understand that she can take her life in stride and should only cut out things she really doesn't enjoy. I mean, I don't know her, but this is my closest estimate here. You seem like you've got your head on pretty straight and I really think you got the short end of the stick here and that she's been pretty unfair. It's silly to come out and be all "I can't see you anymore" just because one has a lot going on. What she needed to do instead of breaking up with you was sit down with a pen and paper and work out what she wants in her life.
4) The way I see caring for another, or love is that it's there until it fades. It doesn't sound like this has faded... maybe by the time university swung around for her it would have, or the long-distance thing would have caused it. But really, you treasure each day until it fades, and when it fades, you treasure the memories and move on. I think this is what you mean by "not meant to be" as well.
