Fack. I need to find some things to do when I don’t have work while also babysitting my brothers. Good night, whirl.
Maybe I’m the fool for thinking that.
This separates the good relationships from the great relationships.
Going out of your way to show someone that you care, and not just doing it because you have to…that’s love.
I drove Siopao (my GTI) for the very last time. You know, out of the 4 years I’ve been driving that car, this last one was the best. Every corner I took, S-curve I powered through felt like euphoria. I was on a Driver’s High, and the thing is, I only drove 10 miles. My car felt like it was completely brand new—as if it was like the first time I took it out for a spin 4 years ago. I will never be able to put into concrete words how I felt just 30 mins ago. Effing dangit man. I’m pissed/
Goodbye, old friend. No one will ever replace you.
I might just have to say, “So long, GTI.” =(
But, hello, Mini Cooper S.
Saying a prayer for the victims, and those who still continue to struggle because of it.
We are so insignificant, size-wise, compared to the known universe. It’s a scary thought when size comparisons come to play, like how much bigger other planets, stars, solar systems, and galaxies are exponentially to ours. To think that the sky really isn’t the limit—it’s actually unlimited. When night falls and you look up, you can’t help but realize just how minuscule your existence is. Everything that keeps us intact on Earth is driven by such a small margin of numbers that, if even a 1% imbalance were to occur, we would cease to live. It’s fascinatingly terrifying.
I don’t want to be stuck on Earth forever. It’s like prison here, sometimes. I want to know what it’s like to be looking from the outside, in. I want to see further than what I can already make out from our atmosphere. Even if it’s only on the moon, at least I would be that many light years closer to the stars.
I want to s p a c e o u t in outer space.
I partially agree with this; however, in the context of love, understanding your feelings for someone, whether you are a guy or a lady, no one should wait. It’s a two-way street. If all you’re gonna do is wait, then you will lose your chance. Either one of you should make “the first move” and say how you really feel. When the feelings inside you are true, sincere, overwhelming, it shouldn’t matter who says it first. Don’t make it a waiting game. You either say it, or forever regret it.
True gentlemen understand their feelings, and don’t put a tough act/front on around the person they like.
That’s just my opinion though :D
Food. Always and forever.
My girlfriend. No one else has her, but me!
Off topic: HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARIZARD AKA @charlenetutu!
I went to my friend, Sandro’s, going away get together at TGIF in Tyson’s Corner tonight. I got to meet most of his coworkers/friends. It was a different scene, different crowd. It wasn’t the typical FCA heads that I would usually see, but it was refreshing, to say the least. Even though I was a complete stranger among them, I didn’t feel completely awkward/uncomfortable. They were all cool people, and made me feel like part of the group.
Then Sandro left to go to another place, and some of his friends went with him, but some of his friends stayed, too. I don’t know why, but when they asked me to stay with them at TGIF and chill, I didn’t hesitate to say, “Sure.” I never do that! I mean, I had just met them, the reason I went there had left, which gives me no more reason to stay, and yet I said, “Ok.” It was a whole new experience for me—stepping out of my comfort zone like that. It was great. I felt new, refreshed; proud of myself even. I made some new friends, somewhat on my own =) It’s as if I were the new person in town, having to start over.
I know I don’t make sense, but all in all, I had a great time making new friends =)
Me: “You’re out of this world.”
Celina: “Call me Venus.”
Meh. Don’t feel like doing this one.
Oh man, please stop it. You’re killin’ me, son.
HOW TO BE CHIVALROUS
Understand the importance of chivalry. Chivalrous men and lady like women are what creates the beauty of male/female relationships. We were designed to be this way. When men are chivalrous and women are lady like, the world (and relationships) run smoothly. There is no confusion of roles. Relationships and marriages turn into loving units, rather than armed truces.
So, how does one go about becoming chivalrous? First, look the part. Chivalrous men dress nicely and always look presentable. That means no sagging pants (your underwear should not show), clean clothes, and attention to detail—your shoes should be polished and you should know how to properly tie a tie.
Always hold the door open for ladies. When holding the door for a lady, let her go first. When holding a door for a man, it’s okay to simply hold the door open as he’s walking behind you.
Never curse in front of a lady. Refrain too from telling off-color stories or jokes in front of a woman. Your conversation should be refined and dignified. It’s respectful.
Give up your seat to a woman. If on a bus, a subway, or generally any form of transportation other than an airplane, offer your seat to a lady, so she doesn’t have to stand. This applies to all women, not just elderly women.
Stand when a woman enters the room. This is an extremely old school move, but it shows class and a gallant nature. So, for instance, if you are sitting with a group of men and one of their wives or girlfriends enters the room, stand and greet the lady.
Always walk on the outside of the street when walking with a lady. This is another very old school rule, dating back to the time when horse carriages used to kick up dust, blowing it onto the person walking on the outside of the street. This rule still applies. So, if you’re walking side by side with a lady, move to the outside of the street.
Always pay for a lady. It doesn’t matter whether she’s your date, your wife, or a friend, always pay. Insist upon it.
When sitting down to eat, pull the chair out for the lady.
Help your lady with her coat. Also, if it’s cold outside and you can tell she’s chilly, offer her your coat.
Open the car door for a lady. This applies to both opening it for her when she’s getting in and opening it for her when she’s getting out.
Bring your girlfriend or wife gifts. These don’t necessarily have to be expensive, but they should be thoughtful. Flowers, a box of chocolates, a card—anything sentimental and thoughtful to let her know how much she means to you.
Carry the essentials with you. Always carry a cigarette lighter with you, in case a lady needs a light. In the same vein, if the weather is crummy, carry an umbrella. Offer to protect your lady from the elements.
Defend a lady’s honor. Don’t go out looking for a fight, but be well prepared to stand up for a lady. If someone is giving a woman a hard time (bothering her, insulting her, yelling at her, getting violent, etc.), step in. Tell him to back off and offer to stay with the woman until the offender has left. Remember, ladies still need your masculine care and protection.
Finally, remember that in order to bring out your truly chivalrous nature, you’ll need a lady as a partner. If you’re single, avoid pairing yourself with a loud, brash, loose, unrefined woman. Ladies don’t like “bad boys” who treat them badly—insecure girls do. Know the difference.
Hmmmm. I Plan/dream/have a goal to go to photography school, and become a full fledged professional and work for Nat Geo, or do freelance nature/animal (or anything besides people, because people are too predictable) photography.
ZO MY GAH.
Any well established/well-renowned photographer.
