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.

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?

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

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!

Never in my life did I imagine this would be possible

That’s what I’m going to say when I meet Robert Downey Jr, but I’m not writing this post to talk about him. I hope he acknowledges me one day :p

Something great happened today, and I am not sure if this means I’m officially grown up or I appreciate some animals more than I used to. I semi-awoke early this morning to a weird noise by my ear. I did not think much of it, I thought it was a fly that got in my room. I went back to sleep and woke up and heard the same sound again. I was still in bed and turned to face the wall, and I saw a giant, well a big beetle crawling up to the window. I didn’t know it was a beetle at first, I just stared and went, “the heck is that thing?”

Do you want to guess what I did next? No, I didn’t kill it, ran, dance, cry or marry it. In fact, I wasn’t scared at all –okay, maybe I little bit — but I decided to lure it into a bag and throw it out in the grass. I used logic, the beetle or whatever creature it was didn’t bite me, therefore it was not dangerous, so I chose to let it live. If it was a spider, I would’ve killed it or used the vacuum. It was definitely not a ‘cute’ bug, but it is the first time I’ve let a bug live, so props to me for doing that :p. Oh, but it’s not over. Get ready for a plot twist! I came back from the front yard and while I was getting ready to go out, I noticed something crawling up another wall. It was back!!!!!!! I don’t know how the thing escaped, nor do I want to know just so I won’t have nightmares tonight, but it was back, like the Terminator. I was about to scoop it out with a dust pan, but it moved and I got scared, so I threw it against the door. I saw it land on it.

I knew where it was, so I went to the door to get it and, dun dun dun, it wasn’t there! It disappeared, and I am not joking. I had to be somewhere so I decided to let it go and deal with it when I came back. I didn’t see it again. Perhaps, it came back to thank me? I’d like to think so, just for the sake of not losing my mind. What if I imagined the whole thing? I was half awake after all. What if there were TWO? I’m confused. These bugs BUG me all the time, ha ha, see what I did there? No? No? Okay…

Arwen I thought (haha another Lord of the Rings pun, get it?) I was never going to get over my fear of bugs, I guess I finally did? About scooping out spiders, I don’t know if that will happen in the near future, but maybe there is hope :p. Bugs and Arachnids rejoice! Well, not arachnids just yet.

What is the moral of all this? It is possible to overcome fears, it feels weird growing up, and be kind to bugs, they may just thank you for it :p.

Living life

I think a lot of us underestimate, the importance of welcoming a different day. Living life to the fullest, doesn’t mean squeezing random activities in your daily life. It means, finding something (or someone) you love and discovering a different quality of life. Even if it means you do just one thing in a day. As long as you feel you can gain a better perspective, and appreciation for your life, it is worth it.

It’s okay to be a bit impulsive, providing it is not going to damage you or others. For example, if you’ve always wanted to take photographs, why not start today? You don’t have to limit your passions if you don’t have the means. If you have a cell phone, use the camera, and capture what you want. Everything you do at this point, will lead to something better, or different.

Don’t feel discouraged if you discover a new path, pursue it in any way you can, and you won’t regret it. It is the little steps that you take, that will add up and lead you to a new journey.

Regret doesn’t happen because of failure, it happens because you didn’t try.

Of course! The world doesn’t rule me today!
