Single Again - The Life and Thoughts of Zach

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Well. I'm single again. Not much more to say, it wasn't working out, but ya know...thats the kind of thing people want updates about.

(Of course it's horribly more complex than that, hearts were broken, tears were cried, guts were wrenched, but I'm not really wanting to document it all here.)

I feel like a jerk. I know I did the right thing. I'm relieved. I feel like a jerk.

As an incentive, after breaking 3 hearts in my lifetime, can I get a "get out of feeling like a jerk free card"? I need one of those.

(This randomly surfing friends of friends and adding interesting ones as my friend thing really works fast!)

Anyway, consider me a member!

I swear there's something in the air lately. I mentioned to someone that I was breaking up and he said "yah, I did that yesterday". And several other friends have had similar things happen. Perhaps we need to call the EPA.

We've got your back, Zach.

Zach, for a long time now, we've kind of been comfortable acquaintances with each other. And in all the time that I've known you, you've been a stand up guy with a good head on your shoulders. If breaking up was something that you know was the right thing to do, then I know that you did indeed make the right decision. Sometimes doing the right thing hurts, but it's better than the alternative. Anyway, you've got friends, and I guess, having gone through this before, you know that it'll get better in time. Keep your chin up.

LJ weirdness

(Link)
Speaking of weird LJ things - I did that little trick where you see who out there in the either shares the most interests w/ you. You were my #2 choice so I decided to check out your journal. Hope you don't mind - I've enjoyed some of your insights.

p.s. I'm not trying to hit on you , as I am married. I just realized thiscomment may come across as suspicious given your original message.

Heh. Welcome my friend! I'll add you to my friends list! Anyone who loves Adam Brodsky is ok by me. (I've done the same thing with a number of people who came up highly matched against my interests. I think this is not out of the ordinary for LJ users since a number of those people have silently added me back.)

This is such a wonderfully social thread for such a downer of a report. Thanks everyone!

Lovin' the dork

(Link)
Yeah, Adam is really cool, both musically and personally. He played a show at our house last year, and when he was in Madison he actually came by and sang for my sister and her brand-new baby, as she obviously wasn't able to make it to the show. A real mensch and one of the few artists out there who seems to have improved with every album.

Re: Lovin' the dork

I book folk music shows at our local Independent Media Center and Adam has played here like 4 or 5 times now. He's always one of the nicest, easiest to deal with musicians that we have. A friend of mine and I actually drove out to Philly specifically to see his CD release party for Hookers, Hicks, and Heebs. It was amazing, he had like 30 of his musician friends from Philly (and elsewhere) come and cover his tunes on stage one by one and then he did a set at the end. One of the coolest, cutting to the true heart of folk music culture, events I've been to. Totally worth the 14 hour drive.

Now, if only I could convince more than 10 people from the local populace to come to his show on any given evening, my life would be set.

Of course, I meant "ether," not "either."

You go with your bad self...

(Link)
Knowing what you've told me so far a week ago, it sounds like you did the right thing. You've even said as much. The jerk feeling will pass in time...ya jerk.

Of course seeing so many comments numbered at the bottom of your entry amused me. I got to thinking, geez, he really must have pissed off his friends or something.

Then I read the thread of comments and by the time I had gotten to Faith and Don's little conversation, I'd forgotten what started this whole chain of comments.

Re: You go with your bad self...

And you have the honor of being the _only_ person I talked to about this before the night before I decided to breakup. It's nice to have a friend off in AZ who has NO idea about the context of my life and NO interaction with the people in my town. A very handy reference point for exploring otherwise unthinkable thoughts.

Could there BE anymore comments?

(Link)
Wow, misery does love company. 67 comments. Funny that's how we all got here, but the conversation never seems to stay on the negative. I think that says a lot about you and your friends. Keep being your cool self - ya jerk!
