TCA – Rules of Engagement


1. Never trust a man who dresses like a giant bat.

2. If you are an intelligent, self confident, and adventurous woman, someone is going to try to turn you into a victim when they hear the story of your own inventiveness.

3. Never fall for a friend’s sibling. IT ALWAYS ENDS BAD.

4. Just because you want something badly enough doesn’t mean you’re going to get it.

This was written following my amazing cross country adventure in Jan-Feb 2011. I had a really fascinating time that I think about frequently. It was an amazing journey. But some things got complicated. I intended to post this, or something of its nature (a shortened version did appear), quite a long time ago. There was so much to say about the trip, but I was overwhelmed with life and never finished sharing. I wrote this on June 1st, 2011, during a very difficult time, several months after my Transcontinental Adventure. While some of it is factual, I should also like to mention that:

I am now happily married to the friend’s sibling mentioned above. My despair, while thorough, might have been preemptive.

I still hold, quite strongly, however, to Rule #1. We are much, much better than this. šŸ™‚
