11 Months, 47 Weeks & 335 days

Love is not about how many days, months or years you have been together. Love is about how much you love each other every single day. Time is no greater than effort. I’m thankful for your unconditional love & support. Thank you for sharing some good times & bearing hard ones. Thank you for trusting and forgiving. The past 11 months have been a bit rocky but definitely the best. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it with anyone besides you. I love you.

Til I See You Again… November

“There comes a day when you realize turning the page is the best feeling in the world- because you realize there’s so much more to the book than the page you were stuck on.”   – Zayn Malik

As the month end, it’s important to reflect. Looking back on my achievements & “failure” gives me sense of my next steps. November wasn’t the best month, but it was good to me. Somehow I survived through midterm exams. Enjoyed Thanksgiving. Accomplished goals & set new ones. Faced battles & conquered them. Til I See You Next Year.. thanks November.

As A Lesbian…

6 things you should refrain from saying to me :

  1. “Who is the man in the relationship ?” We’re both females, clearly there isn’t a man. Some people in society always feel the need to apply gender roles. We can coexist with the influence of a male in our relationship.
  2. “How do you know you’re a lesbian if you never had sex with a boy?” Its deeper than sex.
  3. “You’re too pretty to be a lesbian” Are lesbians supposed to be ugly? I find this comment extremely ignorant.
  4. “You don’t look like a lesbian” OR “You don’t seem gay” I forgot there’s a specific way we’re supposed to look or act.  It’s intended to be a compliment but is actually an insult.
  5. “How’s your friend?” No, she is more than just a friend. She’s my girlfriend, I’d like for you to refer to her as what she is. This normally comes from people older than me. Acknowledging lesbian relationships isn’t a crime.
  6. “I can turn you straight.” Umm no you cant. I feel like this is the most disrespectful thing someone could say and it always come from an arrogant boy. Full of himself.

p.s. I understand that people are curious but I feel like there are certain comments and questions that shouldn’t be vocalized, out of respect and privacy.

The Looks < The Heart

Don’t be eye candy, be soul food.

p.s. So many attractive people exists but not many of them are actually interesting. Stop chasing what the human mind wants, and let the person’s soul speak. Intellect and long-term contentment is better than temporary satisfaction. Remember, once that sugar rush is gone you’ll be longing for a new one.

H.O.P.E

Hold on, pain ends.

p.s. Remember that pain is temporary. Whatever’s bothering you today might not even be relevant tomorrow. It doesn’t last forever.

p.p.s. Just thought I’d share something inspirational tonight. Keep this in mind !

You. Me. Pizza. & A Coloring Book.

She loves pizza, I was just craving it.

I’ve been craving pizza for the past two weeks, which is abnormal, because I barely like it. But today my girlfriend & I met up after school and we went to eat at the pizzeria. She ordered her a plain slice & me one with bacon (What’s pizza without bacon?!!). The pizza was delicious , even though I picked all the bacon off & waited until it was cold to eat it. I know, I’m very weird.

p.s. I was reminded of a long conversation we had before we started dating, and one of the topics that came up was ‘a perfect date’. We talked about a perfect date for us being a pizza date & coloring together. Nothing extravagant. We may not have had a coloring book this time but we still enjoyed spending quality time.

p.p.s. Here is yesterday’s (Wednesday 10-15-2017) post. Sorry I’ve been slacking lately, midterm week have me stressed right now.

Rainbows exists.

“Courage is being yourself everyday in a world that tells you to be someone else.”

p.s. you never got see rainbows because life was always about being black or white. finding yourself sometimes mean stepping outside of your comfort zone and deviating from what’s expected… but whenever you do find yourself, be proud of who you are. It takes courage to face the people of today’s society.

 

More Than One Commitment

She’s A Track Star. I’m A Dancer.

We are committed to each other but we are also passionate about sports. We always have hectic schedules. When she’s out of school early, I stay late & vice versa. Sometimes she has meets, sometimes I have dance concerts. We often cancel plans because of practice. I understand that she’s an athlete & I accept that she’s always busy. I continue to support her grind by motivating her to do better each and every day . No love lost. With patience & time, we have learned to balance our relationship with everything else that goes on in our lives. We meet up during empty gaps in our day & appreciate the time we spend with one another even if it’s limited. We’re often on the phone late night & early morning. The days when we’re both free are literally the best. Our understanding of each other and communicating through difficult times has definitely made our relationship stronger.

A Cozy Sunday

Hot chocolate, cookies & a good movie. Earlier today I stopped by grandma’s house after running a few errands. We spent a few hours bonding & discussing our holiday plans, as they are quickly approaching. Our conversation also reminded me that I have so many Christmas gifts to buy in such little time. I guess I should quit procrastinating now and get everything done before its too late… I wonder what to buy my girlfriend, hmm. It has to be something special, Christmas is OUR favorite holiday.

p.s. Sorry for not posting yesterday (Sunday), but here’s the post. On the bright side you get to read two new posts today, the second one should be posted shortly.

I’m nowhere near perfect. I’ll say things that will piss you off. I’ll argue with you and then take it all back a little while after because I never really meant it. But despite my flaws, you can never say that there’s is someone who loves you more than I do… I just wish we were on the best terms. 

p.s. Most times I’m a sweetheart but sometimes I can be an asshole. Im working on it.
