I am grateful for the recent long weekend that I was able to enjoy. But more grateful for the idea of having holidays that coincide with the weekend, making it even much more enjoyable than a normal weekend. It’s amazing how just and extra day or two can make you feel so much more relaxed.

First of all I’d just like to say that I was SUPER impressed when I saw this on my dashboard, I mean you were able to reply 3 times; that’s Badass.
Now back to your reply, yes it is true that we take these luxuries for granted. While “we” individually may do our best so that we do not take these luxuries for granted, we inevitably do in the end.
I feel that this is because as human beings, once we get in the habit of having certain things day in and day out we start to take it for granted and believe that it will always be there for us when really, it could disappear in an instant.
So today is the third day after Chinese New Years; it is also the day where you’re not suppose to let anyone visit you at home nor go and visit anyone else at their home.
Aside from being bad luck, apparently people would become very susceptible to getting on each other’s bad side no matter how strong their bond with their friend is thus leading to arguments and detrimental consequences on your friendship.
But is this true?…
Well unfortunately I will not test it out as I am grounded into this tradition. Maybe it’s all superstition though and there really is nothing wrong with visiting someone else’s house today but because I’ve been told that it was “Bad Luck”, the connection to that action on this day is now circling in the back of my mind.
So if I did go visit someone today, the thought of “bad luck will result from this” will probably cause me to act in a way which attracts all the bad vibes. Therefore, if I hadn’t known about this in the first place, I would’ve acted in a different way.
But it only affects the people who celebrate Chinese New Years so it doesn’t apply to you if you don’t celebrate it which makes this difficult to test out.
However that’s fine though if I don’t know; we’re only not allowed to visit or be visited today, just one day out of 365 days. It’s only one day and we’ve got 364 left… so why not just sit this one out? I know I will.
There is one thing I miss and that was the moment we shared.
The moment where we got along effortlessly, everything was fun, there was flirting, there were jokes and laughter.
It was just the moment where everything was perfect.
Your smile was uplifting and I thought it would last forever.
Then came the pit fall.
And that moment ended.
But you know what?
I can live with missing that moment.
It’s a need that comes from the feeling of going to school for the first time and you’re the new kid.
Leaving elementary school, I went to the junior high that none of my friends went to. Even though I had my parents tell me that I will “make new friends quickly”, the reality of it was that this was the first time it has happened to me in years. I didn’t remember what it was like back in grade 1 to make friends nor what it was like going through the transition from preschool to kindergarten.
I was lost; I didn’t know what to do.
How do you make friends?
Good question and an even better one is:
How do you make new friends from scratch? How do you do it from not having anyone introduce you guys?
It was a scary thought at the time.
I thought that you had to be the most popular kid ever; hang out with the right people, the “cool” people and it all came easy.
So I went through a phase. My look, my hair, my clothes; everything changed dramatically as I wanted to “fit in” with groups of people. I did it so I could feel like I belonged but really most of these groups of people never pushed the “uniform code” onto me.
They never sneered, they never approached me about it because all in all, they probably never cared about what I wore.
I just took on the belief that we would become closer if I looked more like them but really…. it made no difference.
So eventually I did my own thing and wore what I wanted because I liked it, not because I wanted to be someone else. And you know what?
I fixed the problem of fitting in by being myself and as a result found my answer to those questions.
Well definitely there would be a lot of things that make up the person that attracts me, therefore focus on women.
Their physical features would be hard to describe as its not just one type of look that attracts me. It’s more of something that I can’t put into words because it’s just a feeling you get when you look at them and your eyes are just attracted.
So on that note, hairstyles don’t really matter so long as it works with their look; like for example Emma Watson and her pixie haircut, she’s got the face and the look to pull it off so I believe it looks great on her.
And their personality?
Honesty, easy going, able to make me laugh (but then again thats not too hard), can have a great conversation with; you know all the common stuff.
Really though all I want is a person that’s like me.
I can’t picture just one person being fascinating because when I get to know people they generally fascinate me already and there isn’t just one person that I’d only want to get to know.
But it’s their stories and their experiences that draws me in when I am fascinated because every person possesses them differently and portray it in a different way. It could be the reason why they love or hate something or what the world they grew up in was like; it can be absolutely anything about that person.
And just when you think you’ve got them figured out, they surprise you in a great or unfortunate way.
This uncertainty, this non-linear performance is what fascinates me and everyone has it, so that’s why not just one person can fascinate me but rather people fascinate me.
Definitely “Princess Mononoke”.
For the longest time as a kid I would always throw this movie into the DVD player.
The story follows the last Emishi Prince, Ashitaka, as he leaves his village to find a cure for the wound left on his arm by a giant boar demon. The wound is cursed and with time will spread all across his body and eventually kill him if he does not find a cure. As he travels to Iron Town, he witnesses the escalating conflict between man and nature as the people of Iron Town wish to expand their territory.
All the while in his search for a cure, he becomes intertwined within this conflict where at the heart of it all is his hope for salvation.
Note: Mononoke is not a character’s name, it is instead a general term for spirit or monster, both which are existent in the story.
A lot has happened in the last two years.
All the good and all the bad played their parts, if you want to know what they were this year, click here.
- I’ve definitely become more open towards meeting new people and towards people in general.
- I’ve become more happy about what I’ve accomplished, who I’ve met, what memories I’ll remember and how far I’ve come.
- I’ve grown taller (strangely enough I’m still growing), I’m getting into better shape and I’ve done a lot of things that I enjoy.
Yes this is quite general; but honestly I don’t think you’re interested in reading a novel about my change on your dashboard, yet if you do, ask me otherwise we’ll just leave it at that ;).
This is the first pair of Nudie Jeans that I’ve washed.
I love how the distress showed up in these jeans after not washing them for 13 months.
During that time though, I’ve impacted them day in and day out. Now, those marks are there to stay just like the impact people have inflicted on my life day in and day out. In the end, you can’t wash it all out, it’s there to stay if it had any impact so might as well accept it and embrace it.
Like these pair of jeans, the impact of our daily lives will show up on our being but that’s what makes them beautiful because no one else will have one like it.
It is unique.
It is you.
Yeah I feel it is pretty important; it opens your mind, it shows you different perspectives….
Wait a minute, I shouldn’t kid myself here because honestly how many of us feel that the education these days does that?
From my point of view, in University there are some classes that do open your mind and show you different perspectives but those are in very small quantities.
As for the majority of the classes? They are just there to hammer in information into our heads.
But then this also depends on perspectives; some people may like the hammering of information into their heads while others (like me) do not.
While I believe that Education is of great importance because of the many benefits it has; being able to have an education customized to your style and type of education is of even greater importance.
Maybe by having that then we will not have to “Hate” going to school even though it is such an important part of our lives.
I’ve disrespected them by lying to them.
I made my mother cry when I was a little boy but what I said or did completely escapes me, all I remember is seeing her cry in the washroom.
I’ve cheated on the homework my mom used to give me.
I’ve procrastinated on some of the chores they’ve told me to do.
Yeah, I’ve disrespected my parents, these are only a few of the things I remember.
No one is a perfect saint, we’ve all disrespected someone at sometime.
