Today I saw a lot of families walking around campus. A lot of them had babies, and it still surprises me to see babies on campus. But there was one particular baby that reminded me of Diego and it’s crazy how I saw him probably half a year ago, and my grandpa says he’s a little Tasmanian devi l now. Which makes me cry and laugh because I loved carrying him and now he’s going to be too cool for me and be all, “Auntie, let me roam free. JK I’mma run like a gazelle.”
Okay, he won’t say it like that. He can’t really say anything, he’s still a baby. BUT THE POINT IS, he won’t want to be carried and that makes me sad because I loved carrying him. Granted, I don’t know when I’ll go back to Mexico but now he’s going to be a toddler. OMG HE’S ENTERING HIS TERRIBLE TWO’S PHASE.
Natalie Dormer and Emilia Clarke are both so ridiculously
pretty drop dead gorgeous I will never understand how they are humanely possible.
The season of leg shaving is upon us.
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.
2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.
3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.
4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.
5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other potential romantic interests) whereabouts thanks to texts & social media. If you aren’t the top priority, your invitation to spend time will be given a “Maybe” or “I’ll let you know” and the deciding factor(s) will be if that person has offers more fun/interesting than you on the table.
6. Someone who hurt you isn’t automatically going to have bad karma. At least not in the immediate future. I know it only seems fair, but sometimes people cheat and betray and move on happily while the person they left is in shambles.
7. The only difference between your actions being romantic and creepy is how attractive the other person finds you. That’s it, that’s all.
8. “Let’s chill” & “Wanna hang out?” are vague phrases that likely mean “let’s hookup” — and while you probably hate receiving them, they’re the common way to invite someone to spend time these days, and appear to be here to stay.
9. Some people just want to hookup and if you’re seeking more than sex, they won’t tell you that they’re the wrong person for you. At least, not until after they score your prize. While human decency is ideal, honesty isn’t mandatory.
10. The text message you sent went through. If they didn’t respond, it wasn’t because of malfunctioning phone carrier services.
11. So many people are scared of commitment and being official that they’ll remain in a label-free relationship, which blurs lines and only works until it doesn’t. I’ve said it many times before, I’ll say it again – “we’re just talking” is opening the door for cheating that technically wasn’t cheating because, hey, you weren’t together together.
12. Social media creates new temptations and opportunities to cheat. The private messaging and options for subtle flirtation (e.g. liking of pictures) aren’t an excuse or validation for cheating, but they certainly increase the chances of it happening.
13. Social media can also create the illusion of having options, which leads to people looking at Facebook as an attractive people menu instead of a means of keeping contact with friends & family.
14. You aren’t likely to see much of someone’s genuine, unfiltered self until you’re in an actual relationship with him or her. Generally people are scared that sincerely putting themselves out there will result in finding out that they’re too available, too anxious, too nerdy, too nice, too safe, too boring, not funny enough, not pretty enough, not some other person enough to be embraced.
15. Any person you get romantically involved with you’ll either wind up staying with forever or breaking up with them at some point. These are equally terrifying concepts.
16. When dating, instead of expressing how they feel directly to you, a person is more likely to post a Facebook status or Instagram a Tumblr-esque photo of a sunset with a quote or song lyric of someone else’s words on it, and while it may not mention your name, it’s blatantly directed at you.
17. There are plenty of people who’ll have zero respect for your relationship and if they want the person you’re with, they’ll have no qualms with trying to overstep boundaries to get to ‘em. Girl code and guy code are wishful thinking and human code isn’t embedded in everyone.
18. If you get dumped, it’s probably going to be pretty brutal. People can cut ties over the phone and avoid seeing the tears stream down your face or end things via text and avoid hearing the pain in your cracking voice and sniffling nose. Send a lengthy text and voilà, relationship over. The easy way out is far from the most considerate.
Have We Met Before.
There are times when I wonder if I already of managed to cross paths with a person who will one day be part of my life in the future. And if you believe in the concept of destiny, how weird would it be if life kept on pushing us towards the person we were always destined to be with but always just missed meeting?
How funny would it be if you were actually standing right beside your soulmate during a concert a couple years ago, but just no words were spoken? Would it be too hard to believe that you two could of been at the same party, even had a conversation with each other, that has long been forgotten? And what if you two actually crossed paths, even for just a second, on the city streets or on a vacation a long time ago? And if you keep thinking about all these possibilities, you realize just how many forgotten faces you have seen over your lifetime and how you could of already met that person who will one day become the most important person in your life. For all you know, you might of admired them from a far but just didn’t have the courage to go up to them at the time.
Whether you believe in coincidences or fate, you realize just how funny life can be and how small our world really is. And though you may never really figure out whether or not you have already crossed paths with that one person that will mean everything to you, it’s weird thinking of that small possibility that they could of just been a few steps away from you as the world just awaited for the day you two would finally meet.
