As I watched the blue bar slowly inch from the left side of it’s barrier to the right, I began to wonder: what if our memories were this easily erased? Not too long ago I clicked the button that started the act of clearing of my computer’s hard drive and thus, began the process. I’m sure we’ve all wanted that at some point in our lives; the chance to have a clear head.
But as I considered that I also considered how thankful I was that I backed up everything important onto external drives before clicking that button. I think I’d like to do that with my memories. Start clean, but know that my important ones are stored somewhere a lot safer than my own head.
Texting me simply to ask if I heard from your girlfriend.. That’s really how far our friendship has gotten us? Then, you continue the conversation by asking how I am. Save it, Bud. We may have grown apart but I still know you better than you’d think and I can tell when you’re just trying to make me feel like you care when you actually don’t. And I don’t know what’s more pathetic: When I figured out that it worked, or when I realized how much I grew used to not having you around.
“I’m really free-spirited about love and sexuality, which I think is apparent in my music, and even the visuals, which are all very androgynous. But the minute you say something about who you are, people think you’re just playing the ‘edgy card’ and that’s not what I want people to think of me as. I want them to think fashion, pop culture, avant-garde, fearless — the girl who brought the straight boys into the gay club.”—Lady GaGa
“And I hope this makes you happy, now that the flame we had is burning out. And I hope you like your pictures faces down, as even broken hearts may have their doubts.”—Mayday Parade - “If You Wanted A Song Written About You All You Had To Do Was Ask”
The last few hours of my life without Lady GaGa’s “Born This Way”…
I’ve gotta say, this might be the most meaningful moment of my life so far…
This song really speaks to me, really gives me confidence for the future. I can’t wait for it to become the most played song on my computer. I can’t wait for it to chase all my fears away of being different and of not fitting in. Here’s to you, GaGa. You’re one hell of an inspiration <3
This game of driving you insane, this game of making you miss me when I don’t miss you at all, this game of where you discover just what you gave up. You remember, right? It’s the same game you played with me last year. However, there is one slight difference. I am now winning.
You no longer have control over me. Actually, you never really did but whatever this is about, you’ve crossed the line.
I’ll never understand you, but now I don’t even want to. You’ve caused me more pain than anything else, and now I’m putting my foot down.
I’m sick of your lies, your smile, your obnoxious laughter, and your ten-times-louder-than-it-needs-to-be voice. Get a life that doesn’t involve meddling in mine.
You’d better be ready to lose me for good. You’d better be ready to live without me.
