I don't know if anyone on this blog has ever retracted a post before, but I just did.

I would like it to be known that I did, in fact, post on Tuesday, which (for some reason) I've been having issues doing recently. So, even with a quiz and a test and a 3-hour rehearsal I made sure to remember you, our wonderful readers. I was so proud of myself! :)

Annnnd then I ended up retracting my post so most of you probably didn't even get a chance to read it. Sorry.

Why did I retract it?

1. The post was partially written out of spite. I once made a promise to myself that I would never post something written in a fit of rage...and even though I wasn't raging, I realized that I was in a bit of a foul mood when I wrote the post. As a result, it was quite hurtful to someone I care very much about it.

2. I realized that revealing all of my innermost feelings in an effort to entertain readers isn't worth harming a relationship. Sure, I love a good story, but sometimes I forget that there are living, feeling people behind my stories. And Mr. Director isn't just a character; he is a living person with very real feelings. It's true, "Mr. Director" reads the blog....but so does _________, the real Mr. Director. And it's not fair to just use him as a good storyline

3. Our dear Mr. Director himself left a...less-than-pleasant comment, bless his heart. And rather than get everybody riled up over it, I just decided to take it down.

Anyways, the post really bothered him and it was more important to me to salvage our friendship (i.e., our awkwardly-not-dating-but-not-being-sure-how-to-be-just-friends-relationship) than to leave the post up.

So those of you who read it...lucky you! Those of you who didn't...I'm sure you're dying to know what it was about and you're imagining all sorts of terrible things in your head. Hahahahaha.

I will, however, fill you in on the bit of the post that was dedicated to the mission developments:

I FAILED my pre-mission dental exam. CURSED CAVITIES! Turns out my lovely smile was hiding some malicious black holes. I have not one, but TWO cavities. Now the question is whether or not the cavities need to be filled before I can actually submit my papers and get my call. My bishop said he didn't think it would be a problem, but everyone else I've talked to has said it will be. Well, my bishop is forwarding the papers onto the stake president, so I guess we'll see what he says.

And....that's the news in Charmerland! It's been an exhausting day. Peace out.

Oh, and a word of advice: If you ever write on an anonymous dating blog, GO TO ANY PRECAUTIONS NECESSARY TO MAKE SURE THOSE CLOSE TO YOU DON'T FIND OUT ABOUT IT. (Except your mother, if it tends to be the only way she can keep up with your life)

The not-dating-but-trying-to-be-friends thing before the mission can be awkward. But it's possible - I totally did it with a boy I know. Try to not get frustrated or bothered by the awkwardness, and just enjoy what you can about spending time together. It's too bad your relationship had to end, but there are still things you like about each other, and there's no harm in enjoying that before you leave.

Don't worry, it still popped up in my Google Reader. But I support your decision. I have done/written/sent many a thing too hastily and instantly regretted it. Better to preserve your personal relationships with those close to you than to entertain us.

2 cavities sucks. But at least you don't have 11. Not that that's ever happened to anyone I know...least of all me... >.>

I'm sure it will be fine though. You'll have plenty of time to get them filled before you leave.

I'm super excited for you!
