Every Fairytale Comes to An End

28 Oct

What is love? I’ve tried to define this for as long as I can remember. I’ve yet to find the answer or at least one that completely satisfies me. It’s one of those philosophical questions that humanity struggles to understand and grasp. To me, love is a realm of the unreachable. It’s an ideal and people eventually settles for the closes thing to it. I won’t be a pessimist and say that you can never find your “one true love,” but truth is very few people do.

Anyway, I’ve made a decision recently that I feel as though it’s the first time ever that I’m doing something solely for myself. It’s hard for me to explain my actions to everyone around me but in my heart I just know it’s the right time and the right thing to do. I want to see where this newly acquired courage is going to take me.

I hope anyone who calls themselves a friend of mine would support my decision and understand that everything happens for a reason and I’m a logical person, so this is in no-way rash or irrational.

Anyway, what’s everyone doing for Halloween? I’m a sexy French Maid rescued by ninja turtles! LOL

The Not-So Simple-Minded

19 Oct

Life has a funny way of playing tricks with you sometimes. Lately I’ve encountered many events that triggered memories from the past. Certain people and actions and simple small talks lead me to reminisce about the past. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one to dwell on things, it’s just good and bad memories come rushing to my mind.

Chatting with some of my best friends brought me back to the High School days. Life was much simpler with just them. I miss how easily satisfied I was a few years ago when sitting all day at the Chinese take-out place and just chatting was considered fun. Nowadays everyone always has to have “something to do.” You ask people to come out and chill, and they’d always ask “what are we doing?” I also miss the days where I could talk on the phone with someone for hours and not just because I needed something. Those long hours of phone conversations brought people closer like I could never achieve with text messages and Instant Messaging.

I’m just pondering a lot like I always do. I see myself bringing back some of those meanings to my life. Talking to my girls definitely helps me clear my head.

So Faux fur is chic this season. I hopped on this bandwagon and thrifted this fur vest for only $15 on my first thrift shopping experience in Albany that I mentioned a while back. I like it a lot but it’s just hard to style. So here’s what I came up with…

(Top and Shorts: F21, Vest and Belt: Thrifted, Oxfords: H&M, Knee High Socks: HK)

I’m looking forward to Halloween. I’m going to party at Buffalo this weekend! Guess what I’m going to be? 🙂

Truths For Mature Adults

12 Oct

So I was browsing online today… actually I was on stumbleupon.com and I came across this list. I found it to be extremely true so I just wanted to share with all of you.

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.

13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

15. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

16. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

17. I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.

18. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

19. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

20. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

21. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

22. Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

23. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

24. The first testicular guard, the “Cup,” was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974.  That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

That’s it for the night guys. I am off to bed and waking up early to study for my exam tomorrow. Wish me luck. =)
