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


Thinking about forever (even if may never come)

We’re sitting in a comfortable silence, each lost in our own thoughts, after a long and exciting day out. I’m on my phone, smiling to myself as I flip through photos of the day and wishing that days like this could last forever–when he asks if we can make one stop on the way home. I glance up at him, wondering what he where he could possibly still want to go at this late hour, only to find that he’s staring back at me with an unreadable expression. Confused and wanting to get to the bottom of that look, I nod. He grins and turns to lead the way, one hand intertwined with mine, the other hand in his pocket clutching something out of my view…

… looking at that spontaneous write, I can’t tell if it’s actually cute, or if I’ve just lost my mind because of the stress of the past week. But yeah, that was supposed to be my take on what kind of proposal I’d wish for–despite the fact that I don’t have a boyfriend.

My Ideal Proposal: Just Ask the Question

Since unforgivingathena attended her friend’s surprise proposal, Nyx thought that it’d be a good idea for us to share our ideal proposals. I think as I grow older, my ideal proposal will change but for the time being, this is it. (We’re totally getting ahead of ourselves when none of us even have boyfriends. It’s good to plan ahead right? Yeah, I’m just trying to convince myself that . . . yeah, no.)

Here we go!

My dream about a romantic-tragedy (?) in The Giver

It’s rare that I dream at night–and even rarer that I remember my dreams after I wake up. But this morning I had this vivid dream about @unforgivingathena and Panda (a guy associated with Athena) in the world of Lois Lowry’s The Giver (a book I’ve been working on with these kids I tutor recently), and thought I would share my dream… with anyone who cares to read about it. *warning* this contains spoilers about the novel, so if you don’t want to know…

Where the grass is gr–maybe not.

So, I didn’t login here intending to make a post, but on the spur of the moment while replying to a comment from cdukulele I thought “well, this is new and somewhat relevant, why not?” So here you have it. I’ve decided to pick up on our segment where we talk about other happy couples’ relationships… by going in the complete opposite direction and talking about how messed up my close friends’ relationship is. See what a great friend I am? Continue reading

It’s all a matter of perspective

So, as many of my posts tend to go, I was having a conversation about being single yet stuck in couple-like relationships with @unforgivingathena, who was expressing dissatisfaction at how she seemed to be having all the couple dialogues with Panda–despite the fact that he actually has a girlfriend of his own. Talking every single day, knowing his day-to-day routine, listening to grumbles about everyday life, meeting up alone together often…¬†You could argue about some ambiguity between friendships and relationships for some of those things. So how about: spending hours each day helping each other with work, being the first one he calls when he received important results, paying his cell phone bill for him when he forgot, being the last person I say “good night” to and (sometimes) the first to say “good morning” the next day, having him push my lazy self into getting work done, consulting him with my complaints and uncertainties about life… I think I can speak as someone who’s treated like a girlfriend without actually being one.
