Rob updated his MySpace page with a new blog entry. It looks like he is giving up on pursuing Beth and moving on. Sounds like he want to move far away, I hear Japan is really nice... All of his friends have left a comments for him as well, including Jamie who always knows the right thing to say :)
Monday, December 17, 2007 - I’m done
It's time for a change. I'm officially launching into a full-blown job hunt. I've been putting the feelers out for the past few weeks, but now it has become abundantly clear to me that I need to move on and try something else. I've put in a lot of time and effort only to be continuously misinterpreted or altogether unnoticed. I'm not opposed to leaving New York, if that's what it takes. Don't get me wrong -- I love this city. But there are certain elements that I need to get away from before I lose my mind. I'm sick of being the overlooked guy. Sick of being pigeonholed as one thing, when if you would just give me a chance, I know I can be so much more.
You know how you can get totally absorbed with something, and because you are so focused on that one thing, you miss out on other opportunities? I now realize that's what has been happening here. Or maybe I've known it all along and have been living in denial, clinging to that empty hope that things were going to get better. That certain things were meant to happen. Well, whether those things were meant to happen or not, they didn't. Not for me, at least.
Sometimes, you need to give up.
Here are the friend's comments:
LIL: I know you're hurting, hon. I just don't want you to do anything for the wrong reasons!
HAWK: Jeez, someone needs to get laid.
HUD: Dude you can't leave me! Who's gonna shave my back?!
LENADIA: About time. And yes, you have been living in denial.
JAMIE: Aw Robby! I'm sorry, babe, I know how you're feeling. Maybe we should get together and cheer each other up...
BETH: Rob I had no idea you were in such a funk! Call me, we'll talk about it. We're friends, right?
Of course you didn't know, that's the whole problem...
As a side note, somehow Ron [1-18-08] was able to sneak a comment past the goalie.
