Left an acquaintance of mine alone at a campus restaurant. It felt kind of wrong to do, but she was eating in and I was getting takeout with no prior agreement to eat together, so...

At first, I didn't really pay any mind to it, but lately, it's becoming a bit worrying, but one of my cats seems to have disappeared, and I have no clue where to start looking. What doesn't help is that he's all black, so trying to look for them at night (and especially since we've had 3 cold rainy days in a row, which probably isn't good for them either if they're hurt somewhere) is a tad on the difficult side. Make matters worse, it seems they've been gone for at least 2-3 days so far, possibly longer. I hope nothing bad happened to them.

We have some surprisingly large birds in our area (though I have yet to see them snatch up anything, though it is a concern when walking the dog, seeing as they're big enough to pluck them off the road as I am walking them), not to mention, there are also snakes, though the cats know how to guard themselves against them, and the local snakes are too small to be a cause of worry (biggest one that was a rattler was killed long ago, and it was a threat to everyone); which leaves the local raccoons, which can get pretty nasty in some cases (one of our last cats from eons ago (at least a decade or 2) got mauled by one and didn't survive the attack).

And of course, there's other people, tourists and the like; especially considering the cat's a bit of a Casanova with everyone they meet. Only other thing that remains as a theory, though we already explored the local areas, is the potential that they're trapped somewhere, but I haven't heard any meowing in any strange locations, and last time something like that occurred, he was trapped in the shed for about 2-3 days straight. Basically, I'm gonna be spending all day tomorrow looking around the block for them, or at worst (God forbid), their remains.

Pray for their safety and return, and that we can find them in one piece and alive.

EDIT:
Considering the Casanova bit I mentioned earlier, along with the recent weather, chances are that someone must've taken him in while they were taking shelter from the weather. Hopefully, our neighbors might be of some help; then again, the Humane Society/Animal Control may have gotten a hold of them too, and if not addressed in time, could either have brought him to another household, or destroyed them. In some cases, our neighbors were being dicks about the times our dog ran off, and called the HS/AC, even though despite not wearing a collar at the time sometimes, they knew we owned them, but wanted them removed nonetheless, somewhat for good; so that's not a longshot, unfortunately. Despite looking like a miniature panther, he's harmless (though capable of standing their ground, having some bobcat in their genes), and quite the affectionate type. Why any harm would come to them is a mystery.

Today has been a long day filled with sighs.

Just now I pointed out to a girl posting on Facebook about a scammy organization that claims to be uber-exclusive and super charitable about how their organization is made to fleece cash off of people like her (in a nicer tone, of course), but was told off. (Obviously, if their website looks legit, that makes them legit. It's not like anybody could make an official looking website for any purpose under the sun) >_< Oh well, have fun sending them a giant application fee for...pretty much nothing.

Secondly, I broke some hearts today. See, I've been a bit of a terrible person, and I didn't realize that this girl around my school still liked me. Apparently I've been leading her on a bit, and I feel really terrible. So I finally just straight out told her I was gay (which is a true fact) and ended that. I felt really terrible but I kind of just had to do it, because the last thing I want is for somebody to miss out on finding a prom date or whatever because they're hoping that I will ask them. Social interaction is hard.

Of course, if someone misses out on a prom/date/whatever because they're waiting for someone to ask them... Well, I understand being shy. But if they were using the excuse of "But guys are supposed to ask!", then they deserve whatever they get.

It's kind of seen as "not counting" if they have to ask, because they weren't good enough to be asked.  Not saying it's right, but it is what it is.

what sort of bullshit-

* LordSlowpoke sighs.

things like these are what turns me off of this whole "let's learn how society works" idea, even if the primary motivation is to work parallel to it in the first place

though i can figure out how it could possibly be reasoned. that's a plus?

Well, it's not until like May, but seems to be all that is on people's minds lately. But yeah, this is the kind of person who I would expect to have that kind of view. And Vector is right, a lot of girls will eventually ask a guy at some point, but would much rather be asked by a boy first. I'm probably going to end up going, but I'm not sure if I'll have a date. I'm a bit shy myself, at least when it comes to anything involving dates. Plus a total lack of people who I'm interested in who are interested in people of my gender.

Every time I wish upon an eyelash (this is a thing, I swear. It's not just me D:) FAKEEDIT: It is a thing.
I wish that I could become a Magical Girl. Sure, you turn into a witch at the end but it would so be worth it.

Yeah, I was once the type that waited until a girl decides to break the social mold that has been cast by society's shallow standards (especially after enough failures of approaching them myself; I approached, but failed (100% of the time; even the ones "below my means" turned me down because I was "a nice person" (No shit. That was their actual excuse; I was turned down because I was a kind person, though not a "nice guy" (big difference))), and in some cases publicized failure (laughed out, loudly, with an audience, including other prospects)), but seeing as it's taking an eternity to happen, and by now dating standards and such will have subsided (where it feels a bit too late for me to give a fuck anymore and accept being celibate and live in peaceful solitude in my own mind), and most of my prospects are married already, have kids, and such... Fuck it.

If by some freak miracle, I DO somehow come across somebody I find appealing (and it IS more than skin-deep; I seek compatibility and companionship more than sex, unlike the rest of the world, or what the media plagues us with in that subject (looking at you Rom-Coms)), I'm gonna take advantage of the opportunity when it comes (I, like many others, prefer to not die alone). I've already had my fun of being the one to disappoint one approaching me (for less than noble reasons) for once. How? Standard social protocol, small talk, she asked if I lived nearby, I pointed to a monolith of a house right nearby that looked like I made serious income, and told her that my house is the one behind it (by which, I was actually telling the truth, and inviting her to visit while at it, if she was interested. Needless to say...). Her reaction went from bright and living the fantasy to the biggest disappointment ever. Picking up on those signs immediately, I felt satisfied and without regret turning her down afterwards and/or not chasing/approaching again, since my paranoia of such a girl (she was pretty, not denying it; however, she was, as others would point out, "out of my league") was blaring like a microphone feedback through a megaphone (AKA- My gold-digger alert). All turn-downs and such being a given sign to me, I naturally have trust issues, especially where dating is concerned. In summary, I am a solitary being. Greater insult, I feel like I am supposed to have a large family of my own later in my life, and am hit with the right genes to accomplish the task, but the absolute worst odds and circumstances to pull it off (being near-30 is not helping one bit; especially with 0-experience dating, and 0-success overall. I don't even get to enjoy dating this late into the game; I need a reset button or a savestate and maybe a way to hack reality, or cheat at life sans retribution/consequence.). On the plus side, if I ever become a 40-year-old-virgin, at least it's because society rejected me, not because I was bad at life or living. So to speak, if Heaven exists, I have some files I'd like God to process and make up for it. My refund in the afterlife better be worth it.

Today I learned that Tennessee, a very good and unbelievably badass (seriously, going just by the stories of his past that he was kind enough to share with me, I can honestly say the dude's life is the stuff legends are made of) homeless friend of mine got struck with a nasty case of frostbite earlier last week, and shortly afterward hopped on a bus back to his home state.

He's got family there, so I suppose it's ultimately for the best. But goddamn am I gonna miss him.
