Wow...

am I kinda popular here or something? 92 frickin network invites...has it been that long since I checked? Good grief.

Anyway, yet another sleepless night, that's why I'm here...I've been lonely since I moved to FL, friends are harder to make than they were when I was in a more familiar area. I'll be fine, esspecially when I get a job, I'll be talking to and around people all the time at work, and co-workers will give me people to talk to, and connections to meet many more people.

I've been told recently that I don't act my age, and I'm hoping a bit that it will make things easier on me in general, particularly at work. After all, if I acted my age I would be like every other snot nosed summer-job brat, and that's certainly not the kind of person I am. I know it's stereotyping my own 'people', so to speak, but I can't stand most of them either, and I'm supposed to 'relate' to them. Yea Right. I relate with the kinds that are like me, self-sufficient, confident, and willing to work their asses off in their life. The ones that I've known, the ones that complained about their parents making them take the fucking trash out once a week, while I was working a 14 hour job(6 days a week) and running my entire farm and house...those were the ones I wanted to kill. They need to learn some responsibility, do their own laundry, and stop calling their parents 'mommy and daddy' before I'll give them a second look or allow them to be any part of my life whatsoever.

The last guy I dated still didn't know how to clean his room, pick up after himself, or do his own laundry. He lived with me on the farm for a little while, and before he knew it he was driving a john deere and cutting grass. It shows that there is hope for these people, they just need to take some initiative. If you look at me, I'm taking care of my own HOUSE, with my own car, paying my own bills, getting my own job, and living alone, and perfectly efficiently with no help whatsoever in any aspect of my life.

And I've been 18 less than a month.

Many people don't learn how to do what I'm doing until their mid-20's, and even then they have that transition period of college, where they get to have fun and wreck themselves half the time, but always have the safety net of a place to come home to and no actual bills, etc. It's softer that way, to have people around, friends, fun, food, etc. to help the transition into full adulthood and living alone. I didn't have that, and I'm doing well, because I was able to learn how to live by my own power and efforts before I ran away from home. I'm proud of how well I'm doing, and the more I look at other people my own age, and the people that treat me like the norm of people my age, the more I realize that I have a leg up in life already, and it will serve me well when things get harder than they are now.

This generation I was unluckily born into will always frustrate me, but I can overcome it, for the most part. And I'll continue looking for the few rare ones that are like me. I know they're out there.

Special People, please, contact me. We must Unite and Conquer. If we don't, we will be swarmed and strangled in a sea of black lipstick and pink hello kitty t-shirts. I can't let it happen.

I understand your pain and gripes. Out of most of my friends I was the only one to finish college by 21 with 2 degrees, let alone just one. And Have been successful and working since 16. Just got to sacrifice fun for planning for your future.
You'll meet lots of friends sooner or later, And you have a special guy here to chatwith.

I never understood that type of thinking. For example, I'm constantly busy with side projects or work. While I was at college I was working thirty-plus hours a week to pay my way and taking a full load of classes.

Yeah, I would agree with melan, take it slow and make sure to take care of yourself. From the women I've talked with, I've heard nothing but negative things about the men here. Which is disappointing. I originally thought that the single women would have an easier time since they had so many different men to meet. But I've come to learn they have a whole separate set of hurdles to overcome.

You are a woman with some serious thoughts. I agree with melanie. I have met a few weirdos on here. I know many will think that I am a creep, but I am not. If you want to have fun just be careful. Choose someone like me..ha. When you get serious dont do like I have done...get married and wake up 22 years later and wonder who is that person in bed next to you. Keep working hard and smart and you will prosper.

You have a good head on your shoulders, very few women that I have met have a hint of intelligence, confidence and beauty like you do. Keep your head up, who knows? Maybe I'll get the opportunity to meet you someday...

Mediocrity is ruining America- everyone just does as little as possible to get by. No one any more takes pride in who they are or what they do which will be the demise of this country. In the mean time I just want to bury my sorrow in you and my tongue in your beautiful ass!

Wow Katie-
I am very impressed with how you seem to have handled such a great many things so early in your life. I agree that the majority of people your age would not be able to handle such things. I know just examining myself that I was not mature enough at your age to do as well as you have. I began living on my own at the age of 19 but was in college and had some financial support from my family. I was lucky in that they paid for my education but they expected me to provide for myself as far as my living situation was concerned. I worked my way through college and as you was proud of myself for my accomplishments. However, I always had that safety net in case I fell flat on my face. It takes tremendous courage and shows your true character in what you have already accomplished. Good luck to you in the near and later future. I truly enjoyed reading your profile and look forward to your future blogging!
