Somebody that I used to know

It has almost been two months since the break-up.

It is strange how clarity can come with time.  I did know the following, but it was all confused in my head.  Then it suddenly hit me; something so simple it summed things up.

The part of my text that upset R*b was: "but I don't know if we are meant to be together".  24 hours later he sends me his cowardly email.

But, that was the whole point of our one month break: to find out if we are meant to be together!!!! For one month I struggled with my feelings. I made the point of the break very clear, and there were multiple times when I said that we might not be together at the end of it.

It took him seeing those words from me in a text, more than a month since we had been on a break, to make him think. Then he spent less than a day deciding that we weren't meant to be together... I can only assume he was pre-emptively splitting with me. It's ironic I guess, because I said "I don't know..." and I meant it. His reaction to that text (I called him to talk) immediately sealed his fate for me - it WAS indeed over (cue tears). I just never got the chance to break-up with him and explain (because of the break-up email he sent).

I had spent weeks thinking about the 'us' I thought we were. I gave time and thought and heart. Those are a few of the things I felt he never properly gave me.

So, that's all I wanted to say. It took me two months after his email to go: haaaang on, our 'break' was all about whether we were meant to be together or not!! It took me that long to sift through all the emotion I guess.

Time Mangement Games: Stand O'Food Series

Yes, I looove time management games. Time Management games are games in which you perform a series of tasks or processes as quickly as possible e.g. manage/cook/serve at a restaurant, stock/run a supermarket, babysit, manage a hotel, build/decorate houses. When I finish a TMG I love, I Google trying to find more like it. Also, when I say 'finish', I mean get the gold/expert score on every single level!


Today's game is...

... the Stand O'Food Series

This game is fun, but different in that conveyor belts of ingredients must be picked from to make the sandwiches.

Keep the line moving as customers and orders start piling up. Slap together burgers and cook up some bacon as quickly as you can! But it's not all about speed. You've also got to plan ahead
  • Stand O'Food (more than 100 levels, 80+ sandwiches to make). Try it for an hour here
  • Stand O'Food 2 (200 levels). Try it for an hour here
  • Stand O'Food 3 (more of everything hehe). Try it for an hour here
