Feeling guilty because I haven't posted in a while....but I don't have much to say.
I haven't been hitting digs as much lately either, I guess 'cause I'm not feeling the love. Or something. I tried to get a digs penpal, but the girl never e-mailed me back. So I guess I'm not penpal material. Which is just as well, because I would probably fall off the letter-writing bandwagon. I started a mini-flame war there yesterday kind of by accident, kind of not. One girl posted something about how WASPs are boring with no traditions, and our holy days revolve around shopping, and that just really offended me. It seems like people view Christian holidays as some big fake thing, and that makes me really sad. And thanks to our illustrious president and the Christian right, Christians are viewed as some psycho, neo-nazi, closed-minded community that tries to push their beliefs on everyone else. So we come out like the bad guys, a lot. That makes me really sad too.
The other thing about digs is that I feel like I'm falling out of touch with everyone there. I don't have anything to share. I'm not sick, getting married, having a baby, trying to have a baby, buying things, doing crafty things that others enjoy, having relationship problems, dating, going to grad school, etc. And that makes me sad as well. I'm tired of getting on and having nothing to share. It's good that I don't have any bad news to share. But at the same time, I feel like I can't commiserate and provide support to anyone with bad news. I don't know what it's like to lose a baby, my boyfriend hasn't dumped me, I'm not broke. So I feel like my comments add no value.
And that's where I am with that. Maybe it's time to say goodbye to digs, at least temporarily.
