All I've ever wanted

 


Emily

Age: 21 Education: High school graduate. 2 years at local college. Job: Works as a pre-school teacher at a nearby daycare on base. All I've ever wanted is to have what my sisters have. My own family too. Somehow, I feel I am not like them. I don't have their ease with life and finding the right partner. At first, I felt I had to meet a certain standard, but I don't know anymore. I just want to fall in love. But isn't that a question many of us are waiting for the answer for? I know it's a big leap of faith, hoping it's your fate. But what if it's not? What if I am destined to be single forever? I think I've met someone. It feels like laughter. At least when I'm not with him. But it's a challenge to talk to him. I'm afraid he thinks I'm stupid. He's so..I dunno..(she winces) stoic. I mean, I think he might like me, but I hate not being sure. My brother keeps telling me not to wait for him. Just live my life and if it happens it will happen, but what does he know...he won't even ask a girl out on a date. He thinks a texting relationship is the best way to go.

  2. Oh, the agony of being young! Ellie, this is incredibly beautifully written. It's like a page out of Emily's diary.
