    Engage(d)!

    So this weekend, on my third year anniversary being with my current girlfriend, I took a hold of the moment we were having at the park and asked her to marry me

    No fancy rings involved or anything, or anything crazy like that - just gave her back her ring that she's had me wear for a long while now. We'll do the official ring shopping later. Wasn't premeditated, we've talked about it over the last year or so and we've actually been living together for some time without any issues. Figured it was time I stopped making her wait. She's got a lot of awesome qualities; the last three years was something like dating my best friend.

    In my real life social circle, this came as a surprise to exactly no one. Everyone's had us pegged as being one person for quite some time now. Never thought I'd have made it this far.

    It is! When we met, I was a broke loser that washed out of college (money) and was living jobless in my parent's basement. Now, three years on, I've gone through a few jobs (step upwards each time) and I now work on finishing my degree while holding an internship with a tech company at a naval base. Theory is I could have done all that myself, but in reality I probably wouldn't have. The effect people can have on each other, eh?

    haha run for your life!

    when you are young maybe it feels good like you are playing grown-up if a woman gets you to go get shit done. That will get old real quick lol

For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Well, I'm a naysayer/douche bag, but I hope you're one of the rare cases where this works out well.
