Whew. I remembered Oasis this morning and looked and -- surprise, surprise -- there was my Article. I would have remembered if I had received some E-MAIL, but I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles. So no one was impressed with my desperate love letter. So what? Most of you probably never read it -- I don't blame you. My real name is Greg (I wrote as Etherial last month) and I also found the description a tad...understated.

I wasn't writing to 'a boy I met' although he was a boy I had met. I do love him, and it would be nice if he at least wanted to talk to me. But there's nothing I can do about that.

I'm not sure when I fell in love with him - it was sometime last year, but it doesn't matter. He doesn't understand how I feel and I can't make him.

He's a Junior in high school 16 1/2 years, and I'm a Freshman at college. I just turned 18. Classes went fine, I have 2 finals today and then I'm going home for two weeks. Finals in October, you ask? At my college - WPI, Worcester Polytechnic Institute - we have 7-week classes. So yes, we have Finals in October and then a break.

What will I do during break? Hang out with my friends, maybe throw myself at Alex or come out to one of my cuter friends (and his identical twin brother...). I'm definitely going to visit my Senior English teacher, she really helped me through last year.

By the time you read this, break will already be over and hopefully I'll have remembered to look and see if it's posted and started writing my THIRD article. It'd be nice if I got paid, but I'll just take my payment in E-MAILs. That means E-MAIL me. Or don't. See if I care.

In case I didn't mention it, my parents live in the suburbs of Boston. I like Boston, it's a nice place, and it's where I met half of my friends.
