So, you have a crush on someone?

I admit it, when I was in High School, it was a drool-fest over the cute guys who walked in the hallways. Now, I can control it better. It’s just funny when I think about how different my reactions can be when I have a crush on someone. They’re not obvious to the guy, but my friends get a chuckle out of my silliness.

 

 Usually, I develop a crush on someone I know and talk to frequently, because I mostly fall for their personality. However, there are times when the physical aspect wins and I know right away who’s going to be in my daydreams for at least, the next couple of weeks.

Has this ever happened to you? You crush is talking to you about how much he’s loving the new features of his car –when a guy loves his car that much, you know there is no chance of a date any time soon – and somehow in your twisted mind, you think he’s saying he loves you.

Your crush: “I love my new rims”

You: “I love you, too…I mean…them, I love them, too”.

Sometimes, I do have a serious crush and I can’t help but to daydream constantly. I try not to stare, because I’m not creepy, so that’s why I just daydream. Thing is, even though I know it’s not true love and I know deep inside I won’t really be with him, I just tell myself, “whatever, I love him” just for the sake of delusional daydreaming.

There’s nothing like the feeling of your crush initiating conversations with you. Have you had that feeling before? When you know he’s not really into you, but he still wants to be friends and laughs at your lame jokes? Hey, I’ll take it. I’ll have the biggest smile throughout the day. I know my friends will probably think I look like I’m reaching nirvana, but it’s something! Gotta be grateful, right?

My friends always laugh when I’m joyful over the fact a crush of mine says hi to me. I don’t let him know, oh no, I play it cool and say hi back, but as soon as he isn’t looking, I turn to my friends and repeat over and over again, “oh my goodness! He said Hi! Did you see that? Did you?” It’s like High School all over again.

Remember, don’t stalk your crushes, don’t stare at them with predatory eyes. Just dream about them and see if you can be friends with them. If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen.

Rain? No problem! I have an umbrella…wait, you didn’t mention there’ll be wind!

I’ve given up. The only reason I choose to wear an umbrella is so my cell phone won’t get wet. Ontario has had beautiful weather lately…wait, sorry I was just dreaming. The weather has been warmer, but the rain and wind have come out to play. I get it, we do need rain and wind, sure, but umbrellas are pointless when they occur simultaneously.

 

http://reactiongifs.com/?p=14598

I walk a lot and perhaps it is my fault for walking in the rain, but my workplace isn’t too far to justify a drive or transit – Forgive me your Highness Mother Nature for trying to stay healthy – I just would like to come home from work without looking like a traumatized wet cat whose hair looks like it’s been electrocuted by the power of all demons.

Umbrella size does not matter, I have small, medium, big, giant umbrellas, and the wind will often find a way to destroy them, blow them away, hit me with them, and make me look like a fool in the middle of the street (how did you do it Mary Poppins?). Not to mention passing drivers who can clearly see there’s a puddle in front of them (after seeing the car in front drive through it), on a residential street, and seem to have no consideration of pedestrians. They speed up just to make a fast turn. Seriously, how do they know I love getting splashed by passing speeding cars?

http://reactiongifs.com/?p=5933

I know I’m from rainy Vancouver, but please Mother Nature just give me a break :(. I don’t mind the rain when it is warm and not windy, or at least don’t brutalize my umbrella! How am I supposed to live my life to the fullest, if my pockets are full of water? I like to end things on a positive note, and I am thankful I can afford the proper gear, but I feel for those who can’t. I’m going to look into donating rain jackets to those who need it. I encourage you to do the same :), or something similar. I’m not too familiar with charities here, so I’ll have to do my research.

PS: I hope all of you are doing great :D.

Zone – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge final letter: Z

Image

Zone

I love my own space, and it is not news to those who know me. I do well with crowds, but only if I have enough space for myself. If I know you, you can be close to me, but if you’re a random stranger (and it certainly does not help if you reek) then it’s best not to come close. I’ve always been this way and unfortunately, I can’t change it. I’m sorry, I just don’t like random people rubbing against me. I love to give hugs, so if you receive a hug from me, you know you are in my comfort zone :p. I don’t know if it’s a defensive mechanism, paranoia, or just a natural annoyance, but I can’t seem to change it, so I have accepted it. I do like to get out of my comfort zone, but I don’t like my space being overrun. You can say there is a bit of paranoia (I prefer to call it being alert), after all, whenever I walk alone in the evening, I am equipped to defend myself against creepers (it’s not like I live in an unsafe area. In fact, it is very safe, but you never know, right?).My word of advice, be cautious, respect your zone, and be sure that others do so, as well. Our world today is not as safe as it used to be, and we need to be aware of that. Live life, get out of your comfort zone once in a while, and do not be afraid to stay in it if you must.

And this my friends is the last post for the A to Z challenge :). It’s been a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoyed them and learned something!

You are – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: Y

Image

You Are

You are capable of greatness, if you set your mind on the right path. You are unique, and believe it. You are talented, not always in the same areas as others, but you have abilities that sometimes not everyone has, be proud of it. Sometimes it is difficult to be confident, I know it is for me, but take it one step at a time, and don’t be too hard on yourself. As this challenge comes to an end, I’m reflecting on all the things I wrote and I can’t believe I was able to do it! If I can write that much, so can you! Please, do not lose hope when you have nothing to write about. You know, we all need a moment of silence in our lives. It’s best to post something you’ll be proud of, than something you’ll regret. If you have nothing to post, how about sharing a video you found that meant something to you? Remember, You are in control and You are the only person who can share about who You are with others. Why not come up with your own small challenge? You’ll be surprised at the results 🙂

Express Lanes – Pathways of HELL

I usually don’t complain, but I have noticed that Express Lanes at certain stores are totally pointless. I’m not entitled nor do I rant to their employees about things like this (they suffer enough), so I will rant here :D. Let me ask something, isn’t the point of a Express Lane to move quickly? 

http://reactiongifs.com/?p=20152

“12 or more items,” should be “5 and no more items,” because imagine if one product does not scan, or the buyer rants about a microscopic dot on their product, do you think the line would move fast if the cashier had to still scan 11 more items? Honestly, I have seen the regular lanes move faster than the Express lane a lot more often than I should. When I go to the market, I expect to take a while, so it’s not like I’m always in a rush, but it’d be nice to get out of there in a fair manner.

http://reactiongifs.com/?p=12168

An Express lane shouldn’t be the place where you can have meaningful conversations with 10 strangers waiting in line, with whom you sing ‘Kumbaya’ as soon as the line starts moving…an inch! This isn’t about the cashiers, they’re mostly awesome and move efficiently, but this is about decreasing the limit amount for an Express line, so companies pay attention! This is an example of when words mean nothing when the actions do not go with them.

http://reactiongifs.com/?p=7278

In all honesty, when I have 12 items I go to the regular lanes, just to be considerate (unless I’m in a rush). But, I can’t really blame customers for this, because the rules do say “12 items or less” or “15 items or less”.  Just to be positive, I have been to supermarkets where the Express Lane really is fast, so props to them! But I do feel like other stores just have all regular lanes, and they just call them ‘Express Lanes’ to sugar coat them.  Which is why I only buy in bulks, and try not to buy in small quantities, so I won’t have to wait 20 minutes in order to buy a pack of gum.

Xhaustion – A to Z Challenge

A to Z Challenge, letter: X

Xhaustion

I loathe the letter X, you can’t find many words that begin with that letter. I picked (e)xhaustion, because this week has been a bit hectic for me, and I’m going through some personal problems. However, I am hopeful that the storm will pass :). What’s the best way to deal with (e)xhaustion? It depends on what you like and what your body tells you. Sometimes, I feel like sleeping for 14 hours straight, and I let myself do it, and there are times when a 6-hour sleep will do for me. Another way is to sit, relax, and drink a cup of warm tea. I find it that helps when I’m not sleepy, but I’m tired; chamomile and peppermint tea do the trick. I think comedies can also help you go to bed with a smile on your face. I have to admit, sometimes I laugh in my sleep when I remember funny moments.

On a side note, I can’t believe the A to Z challenge is coming to an end! Although, I am (e)xhausted from writing specific topics, it has been a great way to get me to sit and write :).

Wisdom – A to Z challenge

A to Z challenge letter: W

Wisdom

Have you gotten your wisdom teeth removed? Not me, yet, but I’m going to have to in the next couple of years. But, that is not the wisdom I’m referring to – ha! Bet, you didn’t think I was going to have a deep moment for a second – The beauty of Wisdom is that everyone has a different positive input, but we all possess the ability to share it, only if we are confident. The thing is, sometimes we need to hear things we already know, but through someone else’s mouth, because during tough times, we might enclose ourselves in a cage of stubbornness and reject the truth that could save us. We know what’s good and bad for us, it is in our instinct, but we must surround ourselves with people of good influence, so that they may help us when our Wisdom is clouded.

Obsessions: Shoes!

Yes, ladies, drool, drool all you want!

I think I now have an unhealthy obsession with shoes. But, don’t worry, I’m not a compulsive shoe buyer (don’t want to go bankrupt). I love these ones! They’re so cute and comfortable. I know they may not look like they are, but they feel soft.

Villain – A to Z Challenge

A to Z challenge letter: V

24994_382696118479_2489838_n

Villain

I tried to be one in high school, but did it work? Nope, it was a complete failure (I thought dyeing my hair purple made me evil). I don’t think I’d ever become a villain, and if I ever become one, I’d turn out to be a confused one. In all honesty, I’m one of those people who think they could use dark powers for the good of mankind. Could that be possible? Let’s think about a moment in our lives where we could have turned to the dark side. For me, I did have a chance to make fun of others, and for a second I wanted to, because they had done it to me before. I wanted to make fun of those who teased me. I thought I could use their evil power to turn it against them. But, revenge is an evil power of its own. You can’t obtain an evil power and use it to do good. Evil powers are a repeated cycle that wraps your mind and body in darkness. It feeds on its host until one cannot find a way back. So, would I suck as a villain? At first, yes, but there would a point of no return, and my goodness would fade until I recognize myself no more. So, I’ll just stay on the good side, being a villain seems like too many worries.
