Thank you member, those words mean a lot to me. And I'm sure she will. Like one of my co-workers told me "when you know, you know"...now I understand what he meant lol.
It is, but I'm ready for it. I want to be able to do things on my own and just live a "normal" life. But I'm honored and blessed because I've learned a lot from the people on this forum and it has helped me prepare for my future in many ways and what I hope to accomplish.
Yes. Every time I pull my CR's (I buy all 3.) Chase has always pulled EX for me. It could be one of those things, but be happy that Chase is willing to give you more opportunities. They have been good to me, and along with Amex will be getting the vast majority of my spend...while the others..eh? not so much.
Yup, I'm Pakistani. But I was born in North Cal, and my parents moved here when I was five. I do speak the native language along with English and a little bit of Spanish (I spent 3 years working in a restaurant so I picked some up.) My grandparents came to Pakistan during the Partition era so they are Indian/Pakistani as well...but I don't consider myself to be Indian.
Again, thank you for the kind words. Yeah I'm glad I have been able to come out, as it was dark. I remember it all started on a Friday night in November 2010. Our school had made the playoffs and we were in one of the semi finals. I was a Linebacker and I caused a fumble, dived on it, and ended up getting into a huge pile which at the end practically broke my leg or damaged it badly. We ended up losing the next game. But I couldn't play and I felt like I let my team down. A few months after that, my friend and I were coming back from a birthday party at his cousin's (this guy was like my brother. We had known each other since seventh grade. He was my best friend, my brother..and we did a lot of things together) and we saw someone swerving all of the road coming really fast. My friend turned the car his way and ended up taking the hit. I tried to give him CPR and stuff but he passed away at the hospital. The person who hit him got a 15 year sentence and suspended license. I had started becoming depressed more and more and his funeral had me in tears...(esp during the euology....I was one of those the gave it...and it was tough). I lost my motivation, self confidence, and I started to binge eat in order to compensate (trying to make myself make the loss go away.) Before this, I was in good shape, and I've always had a lot of friends but after High School, everyone has moved on. I also went through a rough break up at the same time, where I had caught my Ex cheating...but I was nice about it when I confronted her and told her that if I didn't make her happy and she didn't want to be with me, then she could have just said so and we both move on. It happens..and she wasn't the right one I guess. My last ex was just irresponsible, and we mutually went our separate ways. In June of 2011, my grandpa passed away. He always gave me good advice and like you, encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I wish he would be still around to see me one day become a Trooper, but he's watching me and I hope to make him proud. I want to be happy again, and be the loved and respected person I was a few years ago. It's amazing how time can really change things isn't it? I realized I didn't want to carry on like this for my friend's sake and my grandpa's sake, so now I know what I want and do anything I can to accomplish it. I don't give up unless I've given my best and live a life of no regrets. Some things aren't simply meant to be.
