Wondering what the world is

i haven't written in my blog lately because things have been a little sideways. My cat boy has been sick so I'm taking care of him. i have realized that just because you think someone is "the one" doesn't mean they really are... especially when they disappear without explanation leaving you to wallow around in [...]
