So, I met this girl half a year ago…. Or “met”, I guess… Virtually met….



A couple of weeks ago was my birthday, and this girl…. Let’s call her Jill…. Mostly because the name fits her, to my mind at least, but also because… Well, it’s her name… ๐Ÿ˜›


Anyways, this girl Jill, she sent me a birthday card, a really beautiful one…. Made of dots entirely, or, the flamingo is ๐Ÿ™‚ I love this card, and she is an absolutely lovely girl, and she sent it, physically to me, to my physical address, here where I live… ๐Ÿ˜€ I love that… โค AND she was really sweet and included a print of my favorite photo of her with her puppy Murphy…. ๐Ÿ˜€ I promptly put the photograph in my album of very special photos that I have been collecting in this particular album since 1997 โค


But I am getting ahead of myself…. Let us start at the beginning… Sorta… ๐Ÿ˜‰


I have a Facebook profile…. I rarely go on there anymore, I tend to forget about it, sometimes for months at a time… But, you see I am a member of a certain group there, on the Facebooks… SYSK Army… We are a group of fans of the podcast Stuff You Should Know… ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonderful people in that group, not quite normal, but that is most definitely one of the most charming characteristics…. You can be utterly yourself in this group, and that is truly wonderful, if you ask me…. I don’t think I have ever encountered that many awesome people in one place before, but I am not very wordly, so my experience is quite limited, I should think… ๐Ÿ™‚


Anyways, this podcast that we have all at one point listened to and fallen in love with can be found on Stuff You Should Knowย where you can find a podcast archive, and there is also a handy search bar (the “handy search bar” was coined in the earlier episodes, by one of the hosts, Josh Clark, and I have borrowed it from him), good for searching for specific episodes and blog posts and whatnot ๐Ÿ™‚


Anyways, around new years I was posting to the group, and Jill commented a lot, we were talking about streamers and sparklers… I love sparklers and streamers, I just didn’t know that streamers were called streamers… ๐Ÿ™‚ Jill helped me out… ๐Ÿ™‚ We just started talking a lot, became friends, and we text via Viber almost every day ๐Ÿ™‚ She and I have a lot in common, I guess you could say we have a kind of understanding when it comes to each others difficulties, and both of us are very interested in learning more about the other…. โค


Heh, she actually made a wordpress account, so she could comment on my blog, and follow other blogs if she fancy them ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is one of her very few posts:ย I Don’t Have A Blog – Sheep

I thought it was very clever! ๐Ÿ˜€


I love her dearly, I really do…. I like knowing that she’s there, kind of within reach, even though she lives in New Jersey, USA…. It is very comforting to me, knowing that she’s close by in Spirit…. Only a text away…. Or a Skype Video call…. I think that is absolutely awesome…. ๐Ÿ™‚


I have yet to figure out what we are going to do when I am in Indonesia next month, but I think iMessage should be doable, or contact via My World in Words ๐Ÿ™‚ I am bringing my iPad Mini at least and I hope for a data package or some sort of sporadic wifi, but time will tell I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay then, so this actually turned out to be a mixed post… ๐Ÿ™‚ I was meaning to post about Jill, but came around to two or three different things, even if they were only handled a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚


I will post a little more in a second, I think…. I have been awake for 21 hours now, and I don’t feel all that tired yet ๐Ÿ™‚ But then again, I have slept for 15 odd hours almost every day these past couple of days, so maybe I was overdue to stay awake for quite a bit ๐Ÿ™‚


Be absolutely fantastic my loves…!

    Jill actually published a book, on her experience with the mental health system, as a teenager… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here is a link to her book, in ebook format:

    It’s called Like That’s Going To Help ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh take your time! No rush. (You inspired me to do a blog post, although it is nothing quite as lovely as yours.)
