I think it is wonderful of Drew to have such a passion for life that she contiues to “get” involved with issues such as these. Lupus is such a serious health problem for those that do have it. Good for Drew!

Thank you Drew.

My mother suffered from Lupus since she was 27 years old. It robs yu of your life. She spent too much of her life in the hospital, luckly she is now okay only because of a kidney transplant.

This disease is becoming more and more common and targets organs and makes people blind, its important to bring this illness to awareness!

A wonderful sense of philanthropy and very easy of the eyes. :)

Did Drew just go back to brunette? She’s been blonde for about the last five months.

@Halli ur mom is so lucky she got a kidney transplant my mom has lupus and she passed away from it BUT she lived with for her whole life im amazed she had made that long alot people my mom knew passed away from wen they was in their 20′s and my mom also need a kidney transplant thats so awesome drew did that alot ppl dont knw about lupus

Who could beat that smile?
With all that charm? Twist my arm. :)

I am very much aware that you certainly aren’t my woman/gf/wife or anything else. The only way that would change is something drastically different happening face-to-face, but I’m not so foolish as to believe that’ll be happening anytime soon.

Why don’t you just go spend time with your boyfriend on his birthday?
I don’t want to get blamed later because you didn’t.

I’m on my way – no more bullsh!t necessary.

It’s sad to think we’re not gonna be here
And it’s gotten to the point
Where we just can’t fake it
For some ungodly reason
We just won’t let it be

I guess neither one of us
Neither one of us wants to be the first to say good-bye

I keep wondering
Wondering
What I’m gonna do without you
And I guess you must be wondering the same thing too
So we go on
Go on together
Living a lie

Your reason’s not ungodly. I’ve seen their faces Drew. I understand.
Then I saw your face when something was going right. I like to see your face like that picture up there.

I mean the happy one on the left. Not necessarily the one where your frowning in what I can only assume is concentration listening to the woman speak, or where you’re empathizing with the Lupus people.

I’ll find another you, only it’ll be someone who really does love me and want to be with me.

When it comes to you and me, I don’t need to be with you romantically. I’d just like to find some kind of thing, where we’re not mean and hurtful to each other anymore.

Right now I feel like it’s friendship or nothing.

What I wonder is if it would be different when this pressure was off. I suspect what I’ll find is, it won’t matter, b/c you’ll be saying you don’t want me once you get what you need out of me.

Stay together for what? Something that makes us both cry all the time? I’m not into that anymore.

And f-you for making me cry at work again.

Like I said before, I can do anything for a few years, then my life will be mine again.

If you don’t like that, or something else I’m doing, please feel free to kiss my ****.

I know you want me to believe that I’ll never find anyone else but you, but if I keep working on myself and make something happen for myself, why can’t I?
How come in all these years you never spoke to me, if you really want me? Never once. You share everything with someone else (whoever that is at the moment).
Maybe whoever I wind up with won’t be as extraordinary as you, but maybe we’ll have an easier chemistry together where we’ll be good to each other. You have to put in effort and take risks to have something worthwhile. I get that. I felt giddy at the end of yesterday – just being out and doing that little film I was doing. I want more of that feeling and someone to share it with. That’s my dream.
