One Shot Invitation

I've been spending so much time with Dana, I've been missing meetings with the underground community. Is it wrong to want to help people? I've been questioning the group's ideals and I've been reluctant to do what they've asked of me. They've asked me to meet with them in person. This is a rare chance to see the masterminds behind the group and it will give me the chance to get some answers. I'm going.

Doing What Matters

I've been thinking about what I've been doing with my life lately. Sure, coding things is fun and all, but it gets really lonely. At the end of the day, what have I really accomplished?

Being with Dana is different. She makes me feel like what I am doing matters. That I need to get out of my closet sometimes and see how what I've built makes a difference in people's lives. And it's true. I enjoy building things that bring happiness to other people and I enjoy knowing that people are happy using what I've made. Dana dragged me to the lab today and sent a Hugs email to everyone in the room. Everyone smiled.

After Dance Glow

Valentine's Day was the perfect day for me to implement my plans. I picked up a box of white chocolate raspberry truffles (Dana's favorites). Under the lid I wrote a note begging her to forgive me. I've been such a jerk. I slipped it into the secret valentine's pile and then waited in the server room. And guess what? She showed up! She forgave me for everything!

Getting Lonely

I know I've been whining a lot about Dana always following me around. But now that she's stopped, I kinda miss it. I hate to admit it but I was getting used to Dana busting in on my business all the time. Now that she's not distracting me any longer, I find myself thinking about her all the time. Arghhh! I'm going to have to do something about this.
