Second Chance Idol Re-Introduction

Sometimes we get second chances,
and sometimes we never make it past the first,
it really makes you wonder why some things happen when they do,
it really makes me wonder why it wasn't me instead of you

-Michelle Branch



I feel there's some sort of irony in this, me writing an introduction for a second chance at therealljidol.

I'm not big on second chances. I don't like to give them to people. Not because I don't think people have the ability to change, but because I think a lot of people just don't want to. I've been burned by people over and over, and I keep giving them chances. I don't know that I'll ever learn. But I have a hard time letting go of things. And not always for the best.

That's why I'm taking another run at this. I do want to change. And so much in my life has changed since this season of Idol originally started. My life was a complete mess then, and now I find myself living back with my parents, with a decent job (that I sort of hate, but hey it's a job), and actually dealing with some of my issues.

It's a lot of big changes in a really short amount of time, and at least now I sort of know who I am.

And hopefully this time I'll have time to actually write more than just an intro entry.

Also as an aside, Second Chances is one of my favorite episodes of my once upon a time favorite show, Crossing Jordan. So I am LOLing a little bit XD

I always hate to hear that people don't like their jobs. You should never stop looking for a job you love. Hopefully this one is just to get by until you find one you love.

Haha, yeah, I basically ended up with this job because of moving back home and my mom's the manager there, and they were like "Whatever, work there, you need money to GTFO." So...looking for something else, although it's kind of hard since I live halfway to bumfuck nowhere, and don't drive. Sigh.

Season 2 needs to come the hell out on DVD, like...yesterday. I want my G/R fluff, dammit.
