"Gimme, Gimme, Gimme; I Want, I Want!"
Some time after that, not long before they moved, I was upset with my mom about something; what it was, I don't remember. He told me something that I still haven't forgotten, even fourteen years later: "You've got that new computer. Enjoy it while you can." At the time, I thought he was implying either the supposed apocalypse of January 1, 2000, or the whole Y2K thing that was supposed to ruin digital equipment everywhere; however, regardless of Jesus' return--whenever it may come--or any supposedly massive glitches, I still have to enjoy what I have while I can. As good as relationships can be, they can also take away from one's hobbies and/or interests. A significant other could take away from my consumption of entertainment, my bargain hunting, and other things that are a pretty big part of who I am. Do I want to do away with that for any reason? Of course not...but a relationship might end up doing just that, whether I want it to or not.
