Archived emails.

A friend just sent me an archived email she had sent me 7 years ago. It brought back some unpleasant memories, actually. It was just before the...Unpleasantness.... It was a really cute email, but it just hit me with a little melancholy.

Anyone else ever get those blasts from the past?

7 years ago was waaaaaay before I met 13...

I've posted what happened on BF before but I think I'll avoid doing so here. It's tough to talk about anyway, but I'm guessing most people don't want to read about it.

Just answer the question

What, you don't like my emo oranges? Dang. I'm not posting any more pics.

And yes, I get a blast from the past but the past is the past. So there.

No, I like your pics, Siu. I just wanted to dispel any notion that this was about ...her...

I don't archive E-mail. I have a policy of ditching any and all after read. Too much present emo to worry about past drama for me.

Better from a friend than from the government, IMHO

i only get whiney drunk texts and occasional voicemails from exes about the 'good old days'. grumble.

some days they make me feel good, though- considering I'm apparently doing much better than they are.

Ha ha!! There ya go, Arti! That's the way I look at it. It's the life choices that people make that provide their present and their future.

True, I guess I am in a better place because of what happened.

I have no archived emails of my love life.

However, once upon a time, I was good for a drunk dial every six months or so....

I received a bunch of photos in the mail from a high school acquaintance I was avoiding like the plague. Damn you Facebook! Took months of not receiving her pokes to get rid of her.
