A Letter to all my Ex-Girlfriends

Special Thanks to all, 

I thank you all for everything. To all you ladies who made an impact on life, I am a better person because of you. I want to write about how important all of you were to me and what I remember. From teaching me the important of education to teaching me sex, I owe you guys so much. I am glad I met you all.

To Sarah: 

You were the first girl who liked me for my dorkiness. We met in a pool where you must have overheard me tell my friends about how beautiful you were. I know that’s why you were so receptive to me. I didn’t know it then, but my innocence and honesty are what attracted you to me. I talked on and on about how pretty you were while I was in the men’s changing room, not knowing how transparent the walls were and how close I was to the pool. When I came outside, I remember how you looked at me. I thought I was the luckiest man in the world. You had beautiful brown hair with a gorgeous pair of googly brown eyes. I know that your blonde cousin thought that I was not worthy of you, but what did she know? The thing that I will always remember is us walking together with a baby stroller. You may not have known it then, but I was picturing my life with you. I know that’s stupid now, but back then I truly believed it. We don’t talk anymore, but I miss you and will always remember you.

To Ashton: 

You were my first girlfriend. We met in a home-ed class, where we learned to cook pasta and sew. I never really liked the class, but I think I signed up because it was easy and I wanted to meet girls. In middle school, I didn’t have the best reputations with girls, but you liked me regardless. I was terrified to ask you out, but I am glad I did. The first day of our relationship, I sat in another table because I was so scared to talk with you. Later that day, the most embarrassing part is how we both went to the locker room bathroom at the same time while we had different classes and didn’t say a word to each other. You were my first official girlfriend, and I know I was a mess but thank you for staying with me for that awkward month. We are still connected through social media, and I still see the fun things that you are doing. I hope you are doing well. — 1.3.2008 forever haha

To Sara: 

I met you at a time when I was a hopeless romantic. We never met in person, but you changed my life so much. We connected through Facebook, and I added you because I thought you were beautiful. We texted so much and talked on the phones a couple of times. Back then, I couldn’t grasp the idea that we would never work out as a couple. You were in Egypt studying as a student, and I was in America doing the same. Nevertheless, you taught me how important hard work and education were. Seeing you work hard to achieve your dreams made me just as ambitious. I am here today because of you. You will never know this, but when you told me that you were with another person on Valentine’s day, it broke my heart. Our relationship would have never ever worked out, yet knowing you made a world of difference in my life. Thank you.

To Anya:  

For the longest time, I hated you. You were a part of my life that I wanted to completely erase. We met a while back in college. You were the pretty bookstore girl who always looked so happy to see me. On the day I asked you out, I overheard another guy asking a girl on a date and that was what motivated me to talk to you. Getting your phone number was always one of my favorite stories. I remember telling you how cute I thought you were, and you telling me that your manager was here and you couldn’t talk. Nevertheless, I pushed forward and continued. I must have done something right because I could tell that you were at least semi-interested, but I stopped and left the store. On the way to my tutoring session, I stopped and told myself that I may never get an opportunity like this again. I pulled myself back and ran back to the bookstore. I barged right in and handed you a crumbled piece of paper with my phone number on it. You give me that cute little smile that I will alway remember. You never called me, but we meet again weeks later. I was in line at the bookstore, and you and another employee were working that day. I remember seeing you moving customers as quickly as possible so that I would be the next customer for you. During that time, I had my head down because I didn’t think that you liked me, but that same smile made me realize that I had a chance. At the end of our transaction, you wrote down your phone number on my receipt and told me to call you, and I did. I always tried to make you happy from that day on, for you were everything to me. However, our relationship never truly worked. You were much older than me, and you were seeing another guy. I know we were never officially a couple, but it took me a long time to get over you. I remember waiting months for your birthday just so I can say hi and maybe talk with you some more. You really took a troll on me. I don’t want to say that I hate you because you made a positive impact on my life. If it wasn’t for you, I may have never started working out and becoming fit. You made it hard for me to trust another woman, and I don’t know if I ever will. Anya, I think you are a great person, maybe not to me, but to someone someday. I can tell that you have a lot of love to give and I wish you happiness like anyone else would, but I hope I never see you again.

Maddie: 

You are the sweetest person in the world, and I treated you like trash. My favorite thing about you is your laugh and smile — your real laugh and smile where your eyes glowed and you finally showed your pretty set of teeth. I remember how sweet you were to make me dinner and introduce me to your family. I never said “I loved you”, and the truth is, you met me in a pretty dark period of my life. However, seeing you with your family and friend and how you talked about them made me realize how great that must be. You make me want to have a big family now with many cousins and aunts and kids. You never knew this but you were the first person who I ever had sex with. I was too embarrassed to tell you and probably never will, but just know that I had a great time haha. After we stopped seeing each other, I spent more time with family and friend. You made me realize how important those people are — that it’s not just bout money and prestige. I remember you telling me how no one liked you when you were little and that you didn’t have many friends growing up. I am not sure why I never told you, but I would have been so happy to be your friend back then. Maddie, you are a wonderful young lady. I will always be there for you when you need me. I hope you find a wonderful man who deserves a person like you. You will be so much better than me when you get to my age and that I know for sure. I wish you the best forever and always.

Great Falls

About Great Falls

Great Falls is a national park located near the Northern Virginia area. Many locals visit the park to enjoy the scenic views and the numerous activities offered. For a five-dollar fee, the location offers visitors challenging hiking trails, and rock climbing and kayaking opportunities.

My Trip to Great Falls

I visited the park with a friend last month. We drove there in the afternoons and left after a three-hour hike. The hike increases in intensity the further in you go. With opinions to test your athletic and adventure-seeking side, many climbs and trails test the boundary between safety and fun. Notably, many visitors circumvent the 90-degree boulder climb situated in the middle of the trail. However, I couldn’t

The 90-Degree Climb

For obvious safety reasons, children and pets should not attempt the climb. Nevertheless, I have seen young children and dogs successful climb this boulder with the help adults who physically guided them up the rocks. The climb can look intimidating, but the edges and crevasses are reasonably stable, making hand and foot placement extremely simple. In addition, there are serval other unorthodox climbs at this park you can take to satisfy your edgier side.

Conclusion

I recommend the trip solely for the breathtaking views and challenging endeavors. The views are some of the best around if you don’t have three hours to drive down south of Virginia. Be aware of your limits as many people are injured at the national park each year. Overall, if correctly done, this is a great weekend activity for family and friends.

Photos

Sorry, I can’t post videos of the 90-degree rock climb, because I only have a personal account. Nevertheless, I hope you guys enjoy the photos.
