i love discussing relationships with ppl. i love to argue for the sake of argument. and i think everyone's opinion is worth listening to. but i find it rather silly when someone throws the phrase "i've been in many long term relationships" around like it has anything weight. like you should listen to them more bc of it. honestly, the only thing that has any weight to me is if you have been HAPPILY with your partner for DECADES, anything else is moot. to me, being in many long term relationships has no more weight than being in many short term relationships. the end result is still the same, they all still failed. the only difference btwn the two is that the many long term relationships either 1. dragged out longer than it should or 2. took them waaaay too long to figure out that they were not right for each other. so, actually, it gives me the opposite affect.
there are moments where i would be experiencing something or i'll have random thoughts in my head and i'll catch myself thinking, "i'm gonna blog about that". then the wind blows or someone calls for me and i find myself a few days or weeks later, sitting in front of my computer, on livejournal, remembering that there was something i wanted to write about but dont remember a single thing of what that might be. not even one little detail that could give me a hint to nudge my memory. i'm sure this happens to everyone, i just want to write about it to fill the empty hole of my blog which should have been about something else
i should write a note to myself. just gotta make sure that it's a note i understand. i hate it when that happens.
i'm starting to believe that there's no such thing as coincidences. i believe that everything happens for a reason and life as you have it tends to fall into place in the end. it's like watching a movie and you arent really sure what's going on while watching it but once you've reached the ending, everything ties together and it makes sense. yeah, i think life is a little bit like that.
a few weeks ago i was supposed to go to NY... however, as you know, 'Sandy' hit and even if my plane were to leave on time, there's really no point for me to be there as the subways were flooded/not working and half the city is without power. so i called my airline to cancel. my trip included a trip to NY for about a week and then from NY i fly to chicago for work for the wknd. so when i called the airline to cancelled there was a mix up and all my flights were cancelled. even the one from chicago to SF (which was unnecessary). i had to rebook another flight on another time as the one that i was originally on is no longer available.
anyway, that's the back story. why do i bring it up, you might ask? it's bc once i got on the plane, this older gentleman sat next to me. i am next to the window seat and so he had the middle seat. i am not sure what made him feel like sitting there, but he did it. immediately he started a conversation with me. no, it's not what you think. he doesnt come off sleazy or having any ulterior motive, he just seemed like a cool, out going and friendly middle aged man who likes to talk. and it would not surprise me one bit if he does this on every flight he's on. when the guy next to him over heard our conversation he jumped in on our convo too. i dozed off when that happened but in our 4-5 hrs of flight, i've learned a lot about him. he's a musician who composes music for some tv shows. he also does promotions for art galleries. he lived in SF for a few years but is now located in LA. he made it clear that LA is home and he loved it a lot. he then told me that he actually wasnt supposed to be on this flight (it was the day before) but he stayed an extra day and his wife did an amazing break down act that got him on the current flight without having to pay $400 extra hahaha
it was fun. and i felt that given the circumstances and how we're both not supposed to be on this flight... that we've met for a reason. so we've exchanged info and he emailed me the next day saying, "hi". he just told me he's planning an art event in SF. i am not sure what life has in store for me in regards to him. i am not sure what he will bring to my life. maybe i'll meet someone at his party. maybe he will introduce me to another job. or who knows? maybe it'll be as simple as that i'll take away something from his personality that would change my personality. the possibilities are endless and i'm excited to see what life has in store for me
a few weeks ago i went to the doctors to get my annual check up. they weigh me per usual and i realized i'm the heaviest i've ever been! i mean i've noticed that i've put on some weight but i guess it's another thing when you put a number on it. for a while now, my weight remained pretty consistent within a range but now it's way over. so i decided to go on a diet: to eat less, dont give into junk food cravings, and exercise more.
i find it interesting that when ppl hear that i'm on a diet, they go "you dont need to go on a diet! you're so skinny already!". i find it silly bc have they ever thought that maybe, just maybe, the reason why i am "skinny" is bc i care about my weight? i take care of it before it gets too bad. so yes, i do need to go on a diet bc i want to stay skinny! thank you very much!
i know the ppl i talk to dont have ill intentions. and it is not how it sounds. but sometimes i dont think ppl stop and think about what they say before they say it. i'm sure i do this too but this is just a rant so run with me here lol if i told you that we've broken up, unless i tell you why right after, dont ask why. bc i dont want to tell you. someone said to me after hearing that "that didnt last long" :/ really?
then i get asked this a lot: "why do you only date white guys?" or "do you only like white guys?" i think that's super weird. like if i only date chinese guys, NO ONE would ask me "why do you only date chinese guys?" i'm sure my chinese girl friends who only date chinese guys dont get asked that question. but since i'm chinese and the last few guys i dated are white, everyone asks me that whenever i get into a new relationship and the guy is white. 1. i've dated other races before. 2. i dont see what the big deal is about his race. and 3. why does it even matter, especially to you?!?!
today one of our clients (who's openly gay/lesbian) got an email from a fan. the fan, who is also a lesbian, wrote a semi long story about how she went to see said artist a couple of times with her then gf/now ex. then mentioned how she only seems to attract straight women. LOL
is anyone else confused?
called usps customer service today for work. was having issues with their shipping program for business. while the customer service guy was fixing the issue, there was a somewhat long and almost awkward silence on the phone as i waited for him. i can hear him typing away and i sat there wondering if he hears my breathing bc my nose is a bit congested. so to break the silence i decided to start small talk with him. i asked him where they were located as out of everything that i could ask, that is seriously the only question that peaked my interest. his answer? "somewhere in the east coast, i cant give you the exact location for security reasons"
i'm sitting there wondering, who would bother to attack the USPS customer service location... and WHY. lol crazy angry USPS haters. that's who lol
