recently, and by recently i mean the past couple months, leading up to the past couple weeks, and now past couple of days i’ve been feeling really sad. i’m constantly being reminded of him, and i just miss him so much. i’m an only child so growing up my dog was my best friend. i really had nobody else, no brothers, no sisters. in high school, i was a bit of a loner, but i had him. he really was the one i would run to whenever i had problems, whenever i felt down. i would just lie down next to him on his bed and put my head on his furry belly and everything would be better.
i remember that day so vividly. that week was one of the saddest moments in my life. i’ve never lost, and never knew how deep it would hurt. i’m not sure if i was sadder that day, or the day after. i still remember waking up the next day with a piercing pain in my heart. i remember brushing my teeth and the tears just kept falling. i remember going to school like a zombie. i remember thinking to myself, that’s it? he’s gone?
i don’t think you ever “get over it.” i think in the past year..i can say, i’ve gotten used to it. i’ve gotten used to going home and not being greeted by him. i’ve gotten used to sitting by the kitchen table and not having anyone to eat my leftovers. i’ve gotten used to staying inside, not even bothering to go outside because there’s nobody i can play or run around with.
RIP FD. i miss you so much.

Love Ladder of China, An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world.
It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century. Over 50 years ago, Liu, a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu. At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman. To avoid the market gossip, the couple decided to elope and lived in a cave in Jiangjin County in Southern ChongQing area.
In the beginning, they had nothing, no electricity or even food. They had to eat grass and roots they found in the mountain, and Liu made a kerosene lamp that they used to light up their lives. In the second year of living in the mountain, Liu began and continued for over 50 years,to hand-carve the steps so that his wife could get down the mountain easily.
Half a century later in 2001, a group of adventurers were exploring the forest and were surprised to find the elderly couple and the over 6,000 hand-carved steps. The couple had lived in peace for over 50 years until last week. Liu, now 72 years, returned from his daily farm work and collapsed. Xu sat and prayed with her husband. As he passed away in her arms. So in love with Xu, was Liu, that no one was able to release the grip he had on his wife’s hand even after he had passed away.
In 2006, their story had became one of the top 10 love stories from China , collected by the Chinese Women Weekly. The local government has decided to preserve the love ladder and the place they lived as a museum, so this love story can live forever.
