Like a firework, he burst into my life

Hello. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I would say that nothing’s changed since my last post… over a year ago, but that would be quite a lie.

Since last June I… got my Bachelor of Education, moved to a small town on the other side of Canada where I knew no one, started graduate school, lived in a dorm with 3 of the best housemates in the world, finished my first two terms of grad school, had to reject a guy who didn’t even ask me out on the grounds that he was coming on WAY too strong, experienced a massive snowstorm in April, travelled for a month to Singapore/Japan, hosted/attended my first academic conference… oh, and apparently I’m no longer single. How the heck did that all happen?? Given time constraints and the nature of our blog, I’m only elaborating on the weirdest, most unexpected of all those things today… the not being single part. He’s literally the unexpected firework that came from all the darkness, so humour me as I break down this simile.

Warning: the very last section (short-lived) might be PG13 rather than our usual, G-rated content. Continue reading “Like a firework, he burst into my life”

Cries of the Forever Available

So today I asked my best guy friend why, despite having been in a dominantly male environment for the past 7 years, nobody likes me. Honestly, I’ve been pretty confident in myself. Looks wise and personality wise. I think I speak for all 4 of us when I say that. However, we’re somehow… all single… and with the exception of @unjustnyx, we’re single to the point where there is no one making an effort for us.

You know you’re in a strange/sad situation when…

…you’re a single, 25 year-old girl and the person who you have a constant conversation with and who wishes you good morning and good night is a 14 year-old boy. No, I’m not a pedophile, there’s explanations and reasons leading up to this situation! Don’t freak out and call the cops! I’m posting this collection of things that have been on my mind lately mostly because it’s a chance to organize and lay them all out. If my first sentence hadn’t thoroughly disgusted you, read on to hear me out! Continue reading “You know you’re in a strange/sad situation when…”

Online Dating Discoveries

One of my close friends thought it’d be fun to try online dating, so I thought . . . why not? She’s honestly the sort that was TOTALLY against online dating and she hardly ever tries anything new. For her to actually make an account and start trying out an app to find someone made me realize . . . that I should give this a shot too. At the end of the day, the two of us, including Selene, were totally . . . over this online dating. No more. Continue reading “Online Dating Discoveries”

Acting like the bigger person

For the near future, this will be the last post on the guy-that-never-got-named. Huh. Maybe that should be his name. There’s something that you should all know about me. I hate not knowing the answer to something. I hate not being able to understand what went wrong and thus not being able to work on fixing it. You could almost call it… somewhat of engineering tendencies.
