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”

The only problem

Hey. Our lives crossed paths a while ago. I was younger. Infatuated with someone else. Yeah. I really wish I could paint a picture of a fairy tale romance, but I can’t. Real life doesn’t work that way.

Actually, real life never worked out the way that I imagined it would. So yes. I did like someone else at that time. You were a surprise, the type of person I’d never expect to meet. It didn’t occur to me then, but it was because you were so sure of what you wanted in life. You are so confident about your life choices, the road that you wanted to take and how to get to your goals. You remain a reflection of everything I wanted to be as a person.

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.

So a journey ends. Thus, my future begins.

Hello,

Long time no see. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and a while since anything interesting has happened. My excuse is that the past couple of months have been extremely busy with me working on my thesis and writing a couple of papers that never got submitted (although my supervisors promise that they will, I don’t know how much I trust him). But that’s not really the reason. The reason is, we… or at least I… use this blog as a channel for emotional venting… and when there is nothing emotional happening in my life… except the fact that I hate writing papers, there is nothing to vent about. Life sucks.
