too close

I honestly believe you can like a person too much. I think my problem is i like people too much. I invest too much in a person, i commit too much in them, i care too much about them. And I do this b/c I always think I will get the same in return. And you know what, I never do. This is why I don't have a lot of friends. This is why I kick myself every time I try to let someone in. I push and push cause I know deep inside I can't let them in. It's honestly never worth it. And then they come along...someone that wants in. Someone that makes you believe you will get it ALL back in return. And I forget and I get tricked. Cause I start to believe again. And I always, always get hurt in the end. I'm too old for this crap. I'm always better off in the end not letting them in.

gasoline is overrated

All anyone talks about anymore is the price of gas. And while yes it does suck that I spend $40 every 5 days to get myself back and forth to work, I don't think expensive gas is an entirely bad thing. I see people riding bikes that probably never imagined they would ever ride again. I see full buses. I see people walking to grocery stores and corner markets, people staying home, people spending evenings in the yard with their kids. And I think maybe $4.00 a gallon for gas has finally gotten this country to slow the hell down.
