Just so that all of you know, I am currently learning Spanish in school again. In grade school, when I went to a quote on quote, ‘real’ school, it was a dual language school. They taught us a little bit of Spanish there, but I only retained the translation of the names of a few colors… Now though, I’m hoping to learn a lot more. In the past, in school, my mom has introduced a few languages. I know a bit of french (not enough for good conversations though), and danish. We went back and forth between Danish and french, and now we are doing Spanish. My mom is also hoping to have us alternate days, where we do three days of Spanish a week, and two days of danish. Needless to say, my brain will probably be in shambles. But that’s cool, I look forward to hopefully getting better at them, even if it means hurting my brain a bit.
So today (instead of next week) I met Dominico — in person. He is soo tall 😀 It’s awesome. He’s like really cute, and his smile is nice 😛 We talked– just talked– for two hours. Just stood there, talking. It was very fun to me, because I love socializing and getting to know new people. I was just surprised by how short the two hours felt. Also, I was surprised that we had just met, and yet he was carrying on a conversation so well. He knows three languages in total: English (the obvious one for most people), Spanish, and he learned french in school. It was so cool, I was just like an extra percent more attracted to him because of that haha. He also asked me if I knew how to say “my name is ______” in french (because I have learned a bit of it in the past, and I told him that). When I said it, he said that I have a good accent compared to the people in his french class, it made me feel accomplished for some reason >;P
So now, I know my answer to what I was contemplating yesterday. I do want to put my efforts into Dominico. It also helps the fact that my sister’s bf was able to talk to him (because they’re friends) and figure out that Dominico thinks I’m cute 🙂
Dominico also happened to meet my dad, which was not part of the plan. Another thing though, that made me even happier about Dominico, is that he was able to hold his own in the conversation of introducing himself to my dad, which i think is a good quality: to be able to speak to parents.
Oh, and about the title, he has a great accent 😉
His height and voice make him appear to be older than he actually is.
I’ll tell you more about my adventures with exploring Dominico, the next time that I see him.
First kisses! ah… I can’t wait until my next first kiss with someone. They’re just so exciting and nerve wracking, it’s fricken’ great! And no, there’s no sarcasm there, I just like new situations. Because there are new feelings– unadulterated feelings– that you are just starting to feel out with someone. You’re both vulnerable to […]
So this is random, and I’m not completely sure if it will be interesting. But, i’m listening to spotify, and trying to be open about listening to new songs, because who knows… I might actually like one of these random songs. Confession, sometimes I still skip them, even when I’m trying to give them a chance. Some do really just suck that bad. Anyways, I always like it when songs mention ages in them, because it makes people that age be able to relate to them more easily. So, when I just heard she will be loved by Maroon five, I was like “Oh my gosh, if i’m 18 and I’m feeling lonely, or happy, this will be my jam :P”
I’ll just imagine the 2004 Adam Levine singing it straight to me :O haha. I’m actually going to a concert for maroon 5 soon too though, so i’m pretty excited 😀 I hope they play some of their old songs.
Btw, Counting Stars– by One Republic, is good. I also heard another one that I sort of enjoy, that I have heard before, but now know the name of: everywhere– by Michelle.
Another good one is bubbly– by Colbie Caillat
I hope that I feel like that in my interactions in the near future.
When I listen to love songs, in my head, I imagine people (or me 😉 ) acting out those feelings. Usually, the default whether I imagine the scene in, is Fall and Winter. So I’m looking forward to Fall, and the walks that are now comfortable to go on because the weather permits it. I look to experiencing new feelings with the guy that I choose too go after. I also look forward to creating new memories. Later in the season, if I get feelings that in my opinion go along with songs, I’ll post them, and will explain why.
As you all might know from my previous post, I am currently single. I don’t know how long it will be until I’m in another relationship, but I currently have two pending possible interests. Option numero uno, is Mr. Puff. No, he’s not an old guy, that’s just my nickname for him, and it happens to start with mister haha. The second option, I’ll nickname, Dominico. I’ll start with the option that has the shortest info, Dominico. Dominico is this cute Dominican republic guy that my sister’s boyfriend is telling me that I should go out with. He and I met through face time today. He lives nearby, it’s just that the two of them where at school (but her bf wanted me to meet him soon, so that I don’t choose Mr. Puff), and we were at school too, but at home. So during lunch, my sister’s boyfriend called her through face time, so that Dominico could introduce himself to me. My initial reaction: he was cute, had a nice voice (deep 😉 lol) , and looked promising. I’m meeting up with him in person, on Tuesday probably.
Now, onto Mr. Puff; I’ve known him for about a little over 2 years now. We’ve seen each other twice, ever. He lives close by as well. It’s just that for 1.5 of those years he has been in a relationship. For the other six ish months, I’ve been in relationships (with two different guys, spread over the two years). It seems like Mr. Puff and I have never tried each other out. We keep reuniting our chat line through fb every time we go through a breakup with somebody, and on three occasions he has told me that he likes me, I reciprocated that declaration the first time. But days after he said that for the first time, he was back in his “on again, off again” relationship. Which now that I’m talking to him again, I have discovered it is off, for good. The second time he said it, we were talking and just friends (in my mind), the way he said it was “want to go see a movie?” and due to our past chatting, I knew that he normally wouldn’t say that, and that he also could be asking in a date type of way. I declined. I was just getting into a relationship with the archer, and told Mr. Puff that if it was intended to be a date, my answer was no, because I liked someone. So I went for about two plus months not talking to him (while I was with the archer), and then a few days ago the archer and I broke up, so I message him (Mr. Puff). Then, the next day, during a time that Mr. Puff was busy, the archer asked if I wanted to talk about what happened. He wanted to get back together, so I told Mr. Puff of the news, and asked “What do you think I should do?” because he and I had talked about the archer and me before.
He said, ” I don’t think I should answer that, because I would kind of have a biased opinion right now, because I don’t know him and I kind of like you. It made me pause for a second, thinking “Do I really want to get back together with the archer?”
Low and behold though, I did. I called the archer that night, and we were back on– for about two days. I broke up with him just yesterday actually, and have resumed talking to Mr. Puff as a friend. He knows what happened, and he knows that I know he likes me. I guess now the decision is in my court of whether to go after Dominico, and explore a new guy, or, reunite in person with someone who I’ve been talking to already. I just don’t think I should open up the avenue for Mr. Puff, until I’m sure that I like him though. Right now, I’m honestly interested to see where a friendship/interest could go with Dominico. I’m just torn because Mr. Puff and I keep finding ourselves talking to each other after our breakups.
I don’t want Mr. Puff to think I’m friend zoning him, but at the same time I want to discover Dominico. I’m also wondering though if maybe I should give Mr. Puff a shot, after all, we both use each other to go back to talking to after breakups. But I also think maybe that’s all we should be to each other, a person to talk to about your problems. Before, he was an actual crush of mine, but now… I think we’ve talked so much about our other relationships, that maybe we’d be fooling ourselves. It’s different to be broken up with somebody and list all of the things they did wrong, after all, we are only human. I just can’t imagine either of us being real in a relationship with each other, in the fact that we’d avoid giving each other something to complain about. At the same time too, I don’t know if we have good chemistry. I’ve only seen him for an accumulated time of like 3-4 hours, ever, and it was when I was younger, and more shy. So, I think I’ll see how it goes with Dominico though, because maybe there’s a reason Mr. Puff and I can’t seem to get together.
So it has come to my knowledge that I am very flighty and indecisive person. I could be saying one thing one day, and then turn around and change my mind the next. This bugs me, because it’s not like I’m a very unstable person. It’s just that when it comes to relationships I can make very emotional decisions in the blink of an eye. The decisions aren’t necessarily bad, but they make me think… “Should I really post how I feel about someone, on my blog? When who knows how I’ll feel just days later??”
I don’t know if you all like me doing that (posting about boys), but if you do enjoy reading about it, right now you might be thinking “Oh no, please do, we don’t mind hearing your interest in someone jumping to another each day! :P”
Well it’s not exactly that I’m thinking I’ll altogether stop writing about guys in my life, it’s just that I don’t want it to seem like I’m one of those people who can’t stay in a relationship. I also don’t want to seem like somebody who is naive. I just tend to fall fast and make my decisions based on my gut; which has been wrong. But I needed to learn that for myself, so now I know to make my gut wait a little longer before telling me what to do. I guess what I’m saying now is that.. the archer and I broke up. Yes, we had our fun, but now I’m moving on to other things (which I will mention in my next post).
So, the other day I was starting to write a post about how I enjoy typing things, and browsing Pinterest. I was saying that I enjoy typing, because it means I’m doing something somewhat productive considering the fact that I get slightly faster at it, with practice. I also enjoy writing to you all, because it means that I’m not necessarily another mindless consumer of these thought quotes on Pinterest, but that I can actually create, and share, my thoughts. The quotes I’ve enjoyed lately have been pictures of things written in the type writer type of font, which I think is really cool looking. I’ve always wanted to type things on a type writer, I think it would be so fun 🙂
In fact, I think my mom used to own one (when I was little, but she got rid of it :/) and I think I recall her actually letting me type out random stuff on a sheet once. I was little though, and didn’t think about much at the time, so I was basically writing random words. My mom said that she likes it now that there are computers, because you don’t have to rely on a type writer anymore to type papers. Which is a good point as to why type writers are mostly obsolete. I mean, let’s look at the draw backs of the type writers era: ink, paper, consistent thinking required, no backspace, no copy or paste, and the noise. These days, we have printers, “rough drafts” that don’t require you to waste paper, we have backspace, and auto correct, and we can make our keyboards somewhat quieter. That’s something I do enjoy though: the sound of keyboards. I used to love playing this one online game on my family’s desktop because the typing made a loud noise 😛 and the bulky keys just added to the fun. Now, keyboards are getting more advanced, which goes along with them loosing their bulky keys. They’re trimming them down to where you almost don’t realize when your hand messes up and presses two keys at once.
A week ago, I went to my first concert. It’s an interesting experience. Almost a herd mentality forms when the singer walks into the crowd, and sometimes you can’t hear the words. It’s cool though, to think that all of you are there for one reason: to see your favorite performer, live and in the flesh, singing in front of you (even if you’re like hundreds of feet away from them, but thats not the point… 😉 it’s an experience). I’m not the type of person who is a mega-fan of anyone, or at least not at the moment (I’m not saying I couldn’t ever be a mega fan), I’m just not to the extent that I get excited to reach out in the hopes to just touch a person though. I would say that I appreciate music. I just don’t like to be a jumpy person when the atmosphere, or like mood of the song is wrong for jumping though. In my opinion, the person that I went to see, Gavin DeGraw, doesn’t have songs that you need to jump to, in order to enjoy. You can just sit back and listen to the words, at least that’s what I’d like to do. It kind of gets to me though, when people are like “why aren’t you up and jumping around?!?!?!????!!!!”
” because I like to hear the music, not my brain jostling around in my head” I think to myself.
Of course I don’t respond with that, but it’s what I think sometimes. When train came on though, I did stand up, because it felt like the right music to jump to.
All in all, it was a great concert. So good that I left with a headache (sarcasm) haha, but sarcasm aside, I am serious, I did actually enjoy it. I’m going to another concert soon, and look forward to writing to you all about it.
If I were a reader of this blog, by now I would be very confused, or curious, as to what the point of it actually is. What is this goal of it? I’m not here to answer that, because I’m not really sure myself. I started it with no particular subject basis in mind; I started it with the idea to write down my thoughts. If you do wish to see me write about a particular subject though, please let me know. I would be happy to give you my point of view (if it matters to you). For now though, I will write my thoughts, and ideas. I’ll try to gauge what you all find more interesting, by seeing the responses I get, but my posts may come out in a ramble of topics for a while. I guess I will answer the question above though. There are two main things I can think of, wait, make that three:
1) to share my thoughts (as I’ve said multiple times)
2) to maybe share an opinion with you, that you thought you only felt
3) to find the purpose of this blog
So I guess those are the goals. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, about what I write, please do speak up 🙂 I’d be interested to read what you think about the blog.
