💻 I remember the days of AOL chat when most people couldn’t upload or send pics online yet, and so you just had to guess if a girl was attractive based on how she described herself and whether she had a cute screen name like “AbercrombieGirl17” or something.
The first girl I ever had an e-relationship with I met on Tumyeto Skate Chat (long gone website) in 1996. Her username was “*~luckycharms~*or something. Talked on the phone with her every night for months and had no idea what she looked like until she mailed me a letter and photo

I'm so excited. My thirteen games from Scott (which I mentioned earlier) are finally on their way here. The USPS has been super slow recently, but I don't mind waiting. I'm excited to share them with you when they arrive tomorrow (according to the USPS tracker, though it may be delayed).
I guess it's confession time.
I've never told anyone about this before because I felt a little embarrassed about it, but ever since Algebra class last year, I've had a crush on this girl who was at the same table as I. We used to laugh and fool around and have all the fun. I have no idea how I even passed that class. We messed around the entire period every single day.
I've never quite felt this way before, and I've kept it completely to myself for the last year. This was one of the tougher parts of the pandemic for me, as silly as that sounds. We've kept in touch the whole time, though it really isn't the same. I was always scared of asking her out at the time because I was scared of rejection, though I was pretty sure she liked me back. I think that it's damn time I do something about it all, virus permitting. Even if I do get friendzoned or something, I would have at least put myself out there. Nothing will come of sitting here wishing for things.
I figure just talking about it would probably help me feel better about it. Like I said, I haven't said a word to anybody about this. Talking about it to another person will probably help me feel a bit more confident about it all. Sorry for the excessive blabbering about high school garbage like this.
Just a couple quick silly sketches on the mini iPad with my Apple Pencil. I always seem to have a basic idea what I’m going to do but then I just sort of see where it takes me so here’s some silly comic character type sketches. 😜
