Insomniac's ramblings 4/19/11: It's strong and it's sudden, it can be cruel sometimes. But it might just save your life.

So, it's been a little while. Recovery takes time, as they say. I still carry the ring; I know it's not exactly healthy, but it's all I have left, aside from my memories. Trying to sell it, but opal's a hard stone to sell, it's so variable. I looked at well over two thousand opals, over three states, before finding this one; so trust me when I say it's not some random potch opal. Oh well, that's life.

I have been thinking about the theory of time travel a lot since Christmas. Think of the “Back to the Future” movies, the idea of going back, changing something, and thus changing the future (or rather, your present). Honestly, I don't think there is anything I could change to fix it, so the only change I'd personally make, would be to have registered for different classes, so I wouldn't have met her; to save the pain. Rather sad, eh?

Opening this one up to comments, hoping I get some. What, if anything, would you change, if you could?

Insomniac's ramblings 4/3/11: Trust doesn't rust.

What is trust? I was asked to define “trust” a few days ago.

Trust is knowing, not just believing, that someone will be there for you when you need them.

Trust is knowing, not just believing, that you mean it when you say “I love you.”

Trust is knowing, not just believing, that the second something gets a little rough, they will not bolt, leaving you picking up the pieces.

Trust is knowing, not just believing, that the word “commitment” is in your vocabulary.

That is *my* definition of “trust.” Based on all of that; you (and you know who you are) aren't, and probably never were, worthy of my trust.
