First off, I really wanted to thank the entire GYE oilam for being here (and for those of you who are reading this but haven't yet joined, please do me a personal favor and post, even only one post (because I doubt you'll be able to stop afterwards anyway). I can't begin to on second thought, I can begin to describe to you what it would be like without everyone. It would go something like this:

Pesach Night-"No way, I'm ever falling again, Hashem is taking me out of mitzrayim and we're on our way to EY!!!!"

First day chol Hamoed- "let's see how that worked...did Hashem take it away?" (fall through chol hamoed, feel disconnected with wife, she thinks that it's that I don't like her parents.....[chorus]call best friend, cry that i don't want to etc.)

Shvi'i shel pesach - "Krias Yam Suf, AH, going through with a high head, no looking back at the mitzriyim!!"

Isru chag "are the mitzriyim still there....I think I can see them!! let me double check...." (fall again, [chorus]cry to best friend, numb throughout flight back to EY)

First day of zman (without chavrusah in the morning) "I'm gonna make the best of this, get there on time, learn geshmak, do what I want to learn!!"

A few days in - wake up late, get depressed, go into bathroom.....call best friend, cry....

Lag B'omer - Go to Miron (look at every other lady on the way) say all of tehillim, "R' Shimon will poil ois that all this should stop"

Next day - tired, in bad mood.........[chorus]

Erev shavuos..................

Now, it's very different, very different, extremely different.

There is honesty, there is reality, even falling is different. There is understanding and encouragement of one best friend x all of GYE!!! There is advice, direction, humor, friendship like no other, acceptance of whoever you are and therefore being able to express my ugliest feelings.

So thank you all, and especially for those who upped my karma!!!

We will keep upping your karma - you are a riot!!

And you better floor the pedal because I don't like to overtake guys like you, but if you stay off gye for too long, it might happen.

If you need me to explain what I mean just give me a BEEEEEEEEEEP

How long is a while?

I think I may have grown very humble in my old age, as I continue to realize that humans are much more complex than being able to be "fixed" by a few profound and brilliant posts....
