Feeling lonely [27 Jun 2005|05:52pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

I believe the time I felt most alone was when Jack had juts proposed to me and then had to leave. I did have Stephen with me for a short time, but it was not at all the same. I am a person who craves affection and it is not all good for me to be so entirely alone. Jack’s letter would being me solace, but it was not the dame as having him there. All of my sisters were married during this time, and Diana was away in Bombay with her lover, Canning. I was alone, with my mother, who loved to put Jack down in everyway I hated hearing her speak of him like that, and it made me feel even lonelier, knowing that she disliked him so. I tried not to show my loneliness, but it is an extremely hard thing to disguise. It’s a horrible thing to feel. So, that’s my experience. I cannot remember ever feeling lonelier.

I am far too gullible! [24 May 2005|10:15pm]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Which are you more afraid of: Being too gullible and believing things that aren't true, or being too skeptical and missing out on something important?

Definitely being too gullible and believing things are not true. I am not the brightest female in the world and I sometimes wonder if I am hearing the truth or a big fib. I always believed Diana, she knew the truth frightened me, so of course she would tell it to me. Stephen told me the truth also, well, As far as I know he has always been truthful with me. Jack is a mystery. I am not really sure when he is being honest or making something up. Being gullible really is a terrible thing. I can’t tell when people are being truthful or joking, and that is not a good thing. I suppose I am not a good judge of people. So, obviously, my answer would be being too gullible and believing things that are not true. I really wish I could get out of my gullible ness, it makes me feel so very low…

Trust [30 Apr 2005|12:02pm]
[ mood | melancholy ]

Trust. Write a ficlet on the theme of "trust."'

Trust. Well, I fear I trust far too easily, as I stated in drmaturintm's journal. Its a very interesting subject. I trust many people. I trust Stephen, mostly Diana(except when she steers a carriage), but most of all I trust Jack, or at least I WANT to. I really do. Trust is one thing that you can lose very easily when you found out that it has been broken by someone. I do wish that I can learn to trust more wisely. As I get older, I have been more selective about who I trust, which I am very grateful for. People can always trust in me. My children trust me, and I hope my husband does. I like being someone that people can trust. It makes you feel so very well. Trust is a very powerful thing to have when someone trusts in you. It is just a horrible shame when you break it because regaining ones trust is not an easy task. Pardon this for the horrible writing, but I was writing what my head was thinking. That will be all!

Missing my love [24 Apr 2005|11:51am]
[ mood | melancholy ]

It has been ever so long since I have seen my love, Jack. I miss him desperately. I would never dream of going after another man in his absence though. I have my 3 children, which keep me happy, but I'd like to have some affection from Jack, something my children cannot give me(that would be....so very wrong, and I would never do that). He is a very sweet man and I cannot wait to see him. I am babbling and suppose I should stop complaining.

Trading lives [17 Apr 2005|04:31pm]
[ mood | content ]

If you could trade lives with one person for a day, who would it be, and what would you do?

Well, lets see here. If I could trade lives with anyone, I think it would have to be Stephen Maturin. Not only would I be able to sail with Jack, I would be able to help them by healing them and caring for their wounds. A tough job I know, but the satisfaction of helping people get well would be positively wonderful. I know being a doctor would be tough, but I think I could handle it, I mean, it is only for a day. I have mentioned this, but the sailing part would also be quite fun. Stephen spends more time with my husband than I do, so it would be lovely to be by his side, although...well... I shall leave it at that. I do not want to say anything to stir up any rumours or such. Anyway, my choice would be Dr.Stepehn Maturin.

[ mood | complacent ]

I was in the mood to take them, here is one more(and the last):

Your Love Style is Agape

You are a caring, kind, and selfless partner.

Unsurprisingly, your love style is the most rare.

You are willing to sacrfice your world for your sweetie.

Except it doesn't really feel like sacrifice to you.

For you, nothing feels better than giving to the one you love.

What is your most treasured possession and why? [09 Apr 2005|11:15am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

My most treasured possession... hmmm. Well, I have had quite a number of material things in my life that I treasure a lot, but I think...this sounds so silly, but it would have to be my wedding ring. It symbolizes ever so much, especially the union between Jack and I. Everytime I look at it, millions of memories I've shared with Jack comes flooding back to me and it makes me feel wonderful. Isn't it strange how such a little thing can mean so much to someone? Yes, its just ring, but its mostly the sentiment behind it. It means more than most people would think. To me, it symbolizes an ever lasting love. I suppose not many people would treasure their wedding ring except for me, but I really don't believe its all that strange. So, my answer to this is my wedding ring, however sappy it may sound:)

My first post [05 Apr 2005|10:08pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

If you could do one totally irresponsible or even bad thing with absolutely no consequences, what would it be and why?

A very tough question indeed. Of course, I am not the most responsible woman in the world, but I suppose that the most irresponsible thing that I could do, would be to turn my back on my family (mostly meaning my husband and children). My family are my life and without them I'd be nothing. Turning my back on them would not be the easiest thing to do, especially with Jack. Not that I would ever want to turn my back on my husband, for I love him very much, but he can get a bit possessive at times, so it would be incredibly irresponsible to turn my back on him and my children. Having no consequences would be quite nice I suppose, not meaning that I'd ever want to do this to my family, but not getting in trouble is always good. So I suppose my answer is turning my back on my family, for I love them very much!
