Love's in need of love, just not today...

(*queues the music)
Good morn or evening friends / Here's your friendly announcer / I have
serious news to pass on to every-body / What I'm about to say (won't) mean the world's disaster / (And won't) change your joy and laughter to tears and pain. - Stevie Wonder, Love's in Need of Love Today (Love-less Remix)

Aaron IS and has been just fine being single.

(*gasps)

I know. It's hard to believe, right?

Somehow people around me think that romantic relationships are what validate your existence on this planet. And I'm sorry to report...I'm just not convinced of that.

Journalism. That's what validates me right now. (Cheesy, I know.) I've just recieved a degree in it. I've got to put every ounce of my energy into jump-starting my career (which I, too, take seriously, Vandy).

And when I go home, I don't down myself because of the extra space in my IKEA bed. In fact, I think I'm pretty damn lucky that nothing (and no one) is distracting from what I'm trying to do right now.

No. I don't need someone telling me I'm too busy for them. I don't need someone angry at me because I had to go out and cover something, unexpectedly. I don't need someone disappointed when I come home and I all want to do sleep and NOT talk, especially not on the phone.

In other words...GET OFF MY BACK ABOUT IT!

Is there something wrong with that? Should I desire cohabitation right now?

No, it just means you should date a journalist.

(Wait... did I just advocate that...?)

As the self-appointed Chief Operating Officer of the Stevie Wonder song division of Ten95, I must say your ad-libs are definitely Wonder Worthy. But yeah, I'll agree with Marche, maybe you should find a cute lil general assignment reporter to kick it with, so you two at least know where the other is...95 percent of the time, LOL

Aaron!

Look, people DO need to get off of your back. Not only are you forging your career in journalism, but you're a young 20something (read: selfish and accountable to no one).

Work hard and PLAY hard. Enjoy yourself!
