When do things go right?
Relationships rarely work in my favor. I feel like I’ve been hurt more than adored. And I have such high expectations, I run away before I let myself get too attached.
Online dating has kinda been a joke. Mostly too just see what’s out there, looking for something different than what’s always around. It’s hard to have high hopes for something coming from online dating but you never know what can happen.
But regardless of being on a dating site, that doesn’t mean my standards change. I still have high expectations. I know I expect a lot- I want the person I date to be someone that I’m proud of, I want them to have the same ambitions that I do in life, they have to want to be something and make something of themselves, I want them to have high expectations as well.
And when can I expect some Prince Charming to come into my life? I can’t. I can only control what I do with my life, work on myself. Which I am becoming very happy with now. I’d love to make some special memories and make connections, but I know the time will come when it’s right. I just keep telling myself to be patient, and not settle.
Things will go right, when they are meant to. That’s the purpose of a higher being, isn’t it?
It’s been so long since I’ve tumbled around. Lots have stuff have been tossed around in my life. New friends, new school, new goals, new achievements, new jobs, new self, new found happiness.
My life has definitely taken a turn for the better. I’m feeling accomplished and where I should be for the first time in a long time! I’m finally doing things right!
I’ve become a dedicated student, hard worker, building my future, and working on myself. My confidence is at an all time high. And I want to keep it that way.
I am taking a journalism class and my professor mentioned we will be writing a few stories! It definitely got me in the mood to write some stuff down and I realized how much I had been neglecting my blogs! I actually do miss writing my thoughts and feelings down! It’s refreshing and I’ll definitely need it with the busy semester ahead! 14 credit hours of coursework in my major. And 3 jobs- mainly at Nike and 2 jobs doing guest services at events at Bank of America stadium and Charlotte Motor Speedway! I’ve got great networking opportunities ahead! In addition to work and school, I’ve been dedicated to working on myself this year! I definitely want this to be my best year yet! And it’s only the beginning!
Happy 28th Anniversary to my amazing parents! The love they share is truly remarkable. You both are the biggest influences on my life, and your marriage is inspiring. You’ve had your share of struggles, some of those I will take credit for, but you always persevere. Thank you for having a strong, stable, committed marriage that has held our family together. What you lack in perfection, has made up in consistency! Cheers to many more years! I love you!
21st Birthday Proposal to my parents
Dearest Mommy and Daddy,
I would first like to make it known that you two are the most amazing parents to have ever walked the Earth. I know I was a little rough around the edges but you have done your job so well (genetically and morally) in raising me that I am now shining like a diamond. It has been a pleasure being your daughter for the past 20 years so this September let’s celebrate my birth in the most thrilling way.
Just so there is no confusion as to what I mean, I have created a list persay about possible celebratory events.
1. If you watched the Super Bowl on Sunday February 3, 2014, there was a Mercedes Benz commercial releasing the newest model, CLA. With a reasonable price tag and unsurmounted luxurious features, this is a practical, beautiful and useful gift.
2. Since we are celebrating my 21st year, what better way to become legal than a trip to Napa Valley California. Of course you two are invited. I couldn’t think of anyone else I would rather spend time with vineyard hopping for a weekend. Cheers!
3. This past summer vacation definitely was my favorite by far. Even with the 36 hour day in London, that experience was so amazing. Emotions were so high during the bike race I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end a great vacation. That being said, We grew up doing winter sports. Sochi Russia 2014 would be THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. I have already registered for a username and password, so that is taken care of. We should plan around February 15th and 16th so we can watch Ice Hockey, Speed Skating, Alpine Skis, Snowboarding, and Bobsleighs (ideally).
Preparations need to be made in advance so I just want to give you the most amount of time needed to think these over. No rush but my birthday is in 221 days.
I love you very much.
Your best (and only) daughter,
ps. whoever reads this first, please pass on the message to the other
pps. your love is an inspiration to everyone (just saying)
Men these days.
Chivalry is truly lost. During my time in Charlotte, I have been nothing but disappointed in the opposite sex. Dating is irrelevant in society today and men have no concept of asking a girl out, taking her out to dinner, taking her to a movie, taking her bowling… Most of the time, compliments are purely based on physical wants and not out of respect. and relationships are based on how soon we can get drunk together, do things, and then move on to the next girl… Has it ever crossed your mind that girls are not interested in that life? I would love to be treated like a lady, respected, and liked for being me. I’d love to have a guy who is interested in the same things I am- traveling, education, a successful future doing something you love, working out, eating healthy, adventuresome, and making the most of every situation. Why do we have to rush and get married? I’m 20 years old. Interested in dating. Interested in having a fun connection with a significant other. I just wish these boys didn’t have to be so degrading towards women and could actually be nice and caring. It’s sad to me that this is seemingly impossible.
Probably forever single
p.s. this is why i love my dog so much. He’s the only male creature that actually adores me (besides my dad- but that’s required ;) )
Happy Birthday to the most wonderful person I know! I love you Olivia Piet. I couldn’t have asked for a better best friend! So much love ❤ @olivialeepiet
