I Will Not Be ...

I haven't posted in a while, because a) I just haven't had time and b) things have been decent. I say decent because I've been just trying to accept certain things: - I will not be the girl in the bar a guy hits on. - I will not be the person who has a ton of friend to call up and do things with. - I will not be the employee who doesn't have to stop proving themselves. - I will not be the person I wish I was.
