Friends Only !  

~ girl standing at the window; salvador dali 1945

This Journal is Friends Only . . .

Dearest Friends,

If you are already on my Friends List, then you know that this journal has been F.O. since it's humble beginnings. No matter when each of you and I have connected, it was meant to happen when it did, and I am grateful for what[who]ever brought us together. Thank you immensely for your friendship.

Since you are already here, and I am not going through any kind of list purging, there is no need for you to respond unless you'd like to for any reason, such as simply confirming that you are staying on the flist (or kindly deciding to depart...) or if you have a funny story or a joke to tell in this one-time only public entry of teajade's! Quick, get it while it's hot! heee!

The main purpose of this entry, is to have an easier way for one who might be interested, to drop me a line if they would like to be added. So, just in case this does happen,
I simply ask two things:

1. Read all of the User's Page, just to be sure you really want to add someone like me.

2. Comment to be added AND include a little bit about yourself. It doesn't have to be much- at least a sentence or two.

hee! You're so funny! I love *THAT* ! ;-)

I often start off with that...

And sometimes I actually DO have "band camp" stories.

Do you?

I agree about F.O. journals. I've been really grateful to have 'met' you as well. More than mere type-written computer words can convey... ya know? :-) I'm glad we're friends. It's a good thing. [AND... I've been meaning to tell you... beautiful icon!]

aw, thank you!

martialarts4lyf on February 16th, 2006 06:49 am (UTC)
I'd def like to stay on the list.I know I never comment, but I'll try to get better about that!
Little Miss G for Genmai Cha: Guitar! 12-25-2005teajade on February 16th, 2006 07:58 pm (UTC)
And so you shall definitely stay! :-)
Of course there was no question, but I have to say, it's kind of strange, just because, I was JUST thinking about you, very much so, because I've not seen you around quite as much.

Maybe it's just me.... I've had a harder time catching up or seeing certain people as they roll by, but I also got rid of a couple of communities, so that should help, too.

But I've been thinking about you, and wondering how you are. Whether, we respond much or not, I care about you and you are always welcome here.
Thank you for your comment, sweetie!

Bunny hugs and cookie crumbs...kissindra on August 9th, 2006 12:18 am (UTC)
Hi, I'm a friend of meli (smelly_knee) and it's her birthday soon so I am making her an album full of messages from friends and family. I wanted to know if you'd like to contribute something, a message, a memory,a photo or picture or a quote or all of the above!

Anything possitive and lovely that she'll be able to look at when she's down and be reminded that she is a beautiful person, who is loved and lovely and who brightens our world by simply being the wonderful person she is.

Please send you message and/or attached files to Kissindra_ Burning @ hotmail . com (minus spaces) so I can print them out and include them in the album, thanks in advance!
Little Miss G for Genmai Cha: Reflectionsteajade on September 21st, 2006 03:51 am (UTC)
First of all, I'm a fucking idiot. Not so much bc of her bday, but rather because I do not know why I did not even notice this comment for so very long!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sure you already did this wonderful awesome idea!
I am so disappointed that I missed being a part of it. I'm actually pretty sure Meli would understand, only because she knows my life really well, BUT I am NOT going to go into some list of something like excuses or anything, OH NO!!!!

What I would like to do, however, is ask if you would be willing to accept something from me anyway, as very late as it would so obviously BE!

It's just I have been having so much I have been wanting to say to her. I had wanted to put it all together in one place to her for her bday, and then some really bad things happened and I hadn't done it.

So when I found this message, I almost cried or died or something, because it was the perfect thing, and yet... I am of course, LATE in my discovery of it, somehow.

Please let me know, if you will receive something late and just insert it in after the fact.

Also know, that if not, and my idiotic tardiness on this project just completely turns you off, I will completely understand, and seriously NO HARD FEELINGS. I'm not like that. I honestly don't get my feelings hurt too easily. And why would I? I'm the one late on finding this.

I'm just touched and happy that you had wanted to include me.

So thank you very kindly. It's very awesome of you.

Little Miss G for Genmai Chateajade on September 21st, 2006 03:54 am (UTC)
Re: yo!
Ah, I am late seeing this wonderful msg. You are so cool, ya know that?

I don't think you negative at all. It's okay to love having lots of friends! :-)

It'll be nice being friends with you. I like ya already, ya know. ;-)

I think it would be cool to meet in person one day!

jemjemjemjem on August 30th, 2006 05:00 am (UTC)
my life's a series of down and fall.
pain, tears, death.
yet, I still manage to smile.

my biggest challenge these day's how to produce tears... yeah, it's true! i haven't had a good cry for 8 years!!! imagine.

i smile and live normal like the rest of the world... but there's more to me than the jem everyone knows.

isn't it funny?
yea, i'm living in irony.
and that's such a funny story to tell.
Little Miss G for Genmai Cha: Cloud's Rest peak in Yosemite TJ 9-2001teajade on September 21st, 2006 03:58 am (UTC)
I need to check my public msg more often! ;-)

I love that you shared this.

I can tell you are a beautiful person, just from what you have said here and elsewhere.

It is interesting... I cannot give a good cry either. UGH. Sometimes I so want, too, but mostly... I just can't even bring it to the surface enough.

I practically can't believe you said that about 8 years! At least we're not alone....

I can BET there is more to you than the world could possibly knows. That's what makes you so intriguing. :-)
Ironies are the most interesting, and make wonderful stories....

And just remember "Normal is relative..."

HUGZ dear one!

faeryboots on September 20th, 2006 01:14 pm (UTC)
My good friend here on LJ (heymiddleground) would like to know if she can add you as a friend? She has posted lately about her troubles with headaches and how she feel like she cannot relate to anyone and I mentioned you. She is a very awesome chick :)
Little Miss G for Genmai Cha: Blue-faced TJ 3-2004teajade on September 21st, 2006 04:03 am (UTC)
Hey there sweets!

Of course she may do so... she's a good friend of yours, and we need more people for being able to relate on these such things. Thank you for mentioning me. If you say she's awesome, I'm sure it's true! I know that YOU are! ;-)

So anyway, pass it along. If she feels like saying HI here, first, that's fine, too, or she can just add by now.

Thank you for introducing her.

Into The Rawintotheraw on November 17th, 2006 10:30 pm (UTC)
I am IntoTheRaw, I am here on the advice of Plunkybug, and I see too that JustSonya is on your friends list. Both of these people are people I consider close to me, though I have not met either of them in person.

I'm from the school of been there done that. I have traveled the religions of the world, used to run a holistic health practice, and gave it all up to care for a man and his children, whom I loved and still love deeply. A month ago he had a psychotic episode, beyond an affair, there was violence and he left me high and dry. I am devistated, desperate, and alone. Somewhere inside though, I know there is still the woman I used to be, evolving into the woman I am meant to be.

Reading your bio was like a breath of fresh air. So much of it felt like home, like the home I used to know, and hope to find again. I am saddened that anyone has to know pain, even more so when I read a bio like yours and see that your pain may be of a similar scale (if such scales exist) of my own.

If you read my journal right now, you'll see crisis mode. I'm hungry, the earth has fallen away from my feet, I am lost. I wouldn't blame you if you didn't want to read along. But Plunkybug says I can learn from you, and if given the opportunity, I would like that, very much so.

I am happy to answer any questions you may have, but would prefer to do so not in a public post. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Little Miss G for Genmai Chateajade on November 28th, 2006 02:50 am (UTC)
Dear IntoTheRaw,

Thank you for posting here into my journal. I appreciate your courage and bravery to do so, especially after so much that you have been through. I hear and feel your pain, and yet I must say, I also sense a deep strength, one that will carry you beyond measure, even when you least expect it and upon those days when you doubt you have any.

Those are the days when, you will tap into the resources of people who sincerely and genuinely care, are there to gently remind you of the well of strength that they've combined with yours.

It is so very easy to feel alone and lost. But, though it may sound trite, you aren't alone, and the energy of those who have felt/feel such similar pain on whatever scales is there surrounding you, and brightly so, as if a light to help guide you through this labyrinth of a time you find yourself in. The time may seem so long, and sometimes I/we admit it will feel like the blind leading the blind, because I/we are still unfolding, progressing and learning, however, we use whatever various experiences and turn them into lessons and somehow turn them around for us. It's hard to see any good in any of this. So we'll save that for waaaaaaaay freakin' later.

But as "they" say, it's always darkest before the dawn.

But my fave is from Shawshank Redemption where he has to crawl through miles and miles of SHIT, before he comes out "clean" on the other side.

I watched that movie incessantly at one point.

Plunky is wonderful! It's been a couple years now, and I did meet her in person in March. Anyhoo, I'm very glad Plunky mentioned me to you. This is what makes the world go 'round.

It's such a small world, too, for I've known JustSonya for a looong online time, having met her in another online space and time, first, long ago.

Thank you for your patience, I've been gone for nine days, and offline completely for longer. But I'm back, and I read your latest immediately, and have to add you back now right away.

We have more in common than you might've realized.
More later.

Feel free to email, too, see User page.

And a Warm Welcome to you.

Little Miss G for Genmai Chateajade on December 11th, 2007 09:14 pm (UTC)
Sometimes I'm on and off of LJ/the internet, so it took me a while to see the add and the message. Thanks for writing a message along with the add, I always appreciate that. That's great you are friends with miss_malady. She and I have been friends for a few years now on LJ, meeting in the Migraine community. Pain our first commonality.

Hey there Jen! Thanks for stopping by, and commenting here.

Kate's very special and a good friend for a few years now. And if you're her bff, it's definitely more than okay!

Thank you! And especially nice to meet you!

hey, it's me, I was just wondering how you were holding up, you haven't posted in a long time.
