Oh my, Darlene!

Some casual conversation

Me: We need to hang out soon!
Him: Yeah, we should.
Me: … So what do you normally do on the weekends?
Him: … …. Nothing.
Me: All right, well, I’m gonna just randomly text you one weekend and we’re gonna go out! 
Him: Sounds good! 
Me: Okay, see ya!
Him: See ya! *skates off*

Still a bit of hesitation but not too much awkwardness anymore. I say we’ve come a long way! lol. We’ll see where this goes. ;)

I’ve just found out he’s actually the captain of the Men’s Soccer Team at my school… he just became even more attractive to me! 

Normally, you’d expect the team captain to be the most social, most outgoing, most talkative one in the group, but no, that’s not him. He’s the quiet, reserved type of guy, but he’s the one you could always count on. 

Wow, I love that about him! <3

Exactly 18 days ago, I had a dream which involved this guy&#8230; 
Heh&#8230;now those who know me well will know that whenever I have a dream involving a person of interest the following happens&#8230;
Typically, when I wake up, I would think about the dream, review it in my head over and over again,
then try to analyze it, 
then maybe write it down so I don&#8217;t forget any details, 
then I talk to a couple of my closest girl friends about it, 
and sometimes I will ask some guy friends for input without giving too much details, 
then I google some dream interpretations, 
then I try to come up with some logical reasoning for my dream and figure out why I had it in the first place
haha! Wow, that was exhausting! I&#8217;m so complicated! Why must I make everything complicated?? Lol.
Anyway, when I woke up the morning after I had that dream, I actually only thought about it for a quick minute, texted a friend and told her that I just had a dream about someone then I decided to text that guy!

Was I crazy for doing so? Probably! But guess what!? At that time, I really didn&#8217;t care. I did not even think about it twice, just once, I promise! I mean, I had nothing to lose. And if anything, I ended up just using it as a reason to say hi to him anyway. I mean, what&#8217;s the harm in that, right?
Fortunately, he didn&#8217;t find it creepy or weird at all. (It really wasn&#8217;t a weird dream anyway) He actually thought it was pretty funny and then we started to ask how each other&#8217;s been. (See? Good results!) We even decided we should bring our &#8220;gang&#8221; back together for a little reunion - his idea, not mine! ;) 
Now, we&#8217;re still trying to figure out how and when we&#8217;re gonna get everyone together, but it was a good way to start communication with this guy again&#8230;
However, the following events I did not, and could not have anticipated. 
-Running into him two days later -Ending up sitting next to each other (at an event) just a week after then walking out together &amp; talking-Texting each other two days later-Him running into me again just today! 
Like I said, I could not have planned these events, and there was no way I could have controlled what was happening. Even when I talk about it with my friends, I&#8217;m still in some kind of shock that these events happened right after my dream, and right after texting him. 
I&#8217;m just glad I did. I mean, the only thing different that I really did was put myself out there and allowed myself to become vulnerable enough to the situation. No matter how big or small of an impact it had, I still did it! 
And now, lately, I feel like he&#8217;s starting to become vulnerable and warm up to me, too. 
And yes, I did have a thing for him. &#8230;Okay, I&#8217;ve had a thing for him since last year, but I thought I got over it. Turns out, I was just repressing my feelings. Or maybe I wasn&#8217;t? I was just being patient and letting fate take control&#8230; or whatever. (lol)
All I know is, I&#8217;ve been experiencing &#8220;a series of small serendipities&#8221; lately&#8230; ;)

Happy Outcome.

This was an excerpt from a horoscope app I was looking thru sometime last month. I found it written in one of my notebook and as I read it, I realize it can be applied generally, for everyone. So I wanted to share…

—-

How can you ensure a happy outcome to a new endeavor? You can work hard - that usually results in success. 

You can think positive because the thoughts and words you send out are the architects of your path in life.

Do what you believe is right, and be true to your self. 

It might be hard because our perception of what’s right and best is hard to define, and if you don’t know your mind well enough you may not know how to be true to yourself.

Tune in to your inner voice and listen.

"It’s not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.


When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. 
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. 
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. 
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. 
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. 
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and out what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. 
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. 

*found this little piece in my pile of old dreams I’ve recorded over 13yrs ago! Wow.

What does this picture mean to you? 
To me, it means Monday morning (3.10.14)&#8230; 
Heh, I don&#8217;t care if it&#8217;s lame or cheesy, but I&#8217;ve learned to cherish little moments like this even if they mean more to me than it did to the other person.
It just gives me something to smile about. And sometimes, that&#8217;s all that matters.
One can never really know how much impact a simple gesture possesses until they are told, but most never get to find out because we are too worried about how it might appear to others.
Truthfully, I&#8217;m starting to believe that some of life&#8217;s most precious moments happen when we take risks; when we put ourselves out there and become vulnerable enough to feel disappointment, but more importantly&#8230; happiness. 
Ironically enough, right before this exact moment, we were both listening to a lecture on Vulnerability. ;)

Ah&#8230; the only way I can explain everything that&#8217;s been happening between us two lately is&#8230; S E R E N D I P I T Y.
Yes, serendipity, but in baby steps.. haha!
Thinking of you&#8230; :) 
xo.



now back to studying!

Help yourself.

Lately, and I’m guilty of this, too, I’ve come across individuals who do nothing but complain or make excuses for everything wrong that is or isn’t happening in their lives. Well, I have this to say:

Don’t expect others to help you if you don’t even want to help yourself. You’re not doing anything to benefit anyone when you’re just sitting there complaining and constantly giving excuses for everything. 

Get up, go out there, and do something!

That is all.
