Joe: than school - than moping about over ex boyfriends
Joe: something real
me: Sometimes. Mostly i'm too busy with the all-too-real-ness that is my life now. But yes, there is that ever-tantalizing "real world." Righting the wrongs of the world and all that. But i feel like what's important is making a difference, be it changing a law or lifting one person's spirits, and i can do that here and now and i try, because that's what's important and real -- making a difference.
Joe: this is why I turn to people like you for validation
me: *blushes* Aw, thank you.
