You know all those cool, modern looking staircases that are filled with books that everyone, even the people whose last book they read was The Great Gatsby in high school, seems to reblog?
Like has anyone thought about how difficult it would be to clean? Like you can’t just swifter the dust off of books… and not to mention the dust that would settle in between the pages… And why do they have so many books? Like I mean, I’m 26 and I have maybe enough books to fill up one bookcase. And why are they all hardcovers? Hardcover editions are freaking expensive.
This morning I missed my usual train and had to get on the next one. To my pleasant surprise, I was surrounded by really pretty girls, which rarely happens on my normal train. It’s mostly full of young men like meself, but obviously less attractive, with some old people and a few pretty girls scattered throughout.
Anyway, there was this taller girl that was standing next to me and when the train approached her stop, she used her hands to grab my arm for support. She giggled and apologized, and I smiled.
There was another girl on my left, and the way we were situated, she needn’t have to make so much physical contact with me as there was plenty of room on her other side…
The girl in front of me, I think kept stealing glances at me… there’s this technique when you’re on the subway where you look up towards the screen to see what stop it is, but actually you’re trying to get a glimpse of the possibly attractive person near you. She did this a few times, and our eyes met once but I went back to reading my manga :]
So I haven’t posted a dream in awhile, so here you go. One thing I noticed was there wasn’t any audible dialogue or sounds during the dream except at the end.
It starts as any other day… the sun is shining, there’s a cool breeze, and we’re going out. The girl is someone I haven’t met in real life, or someone that I didn’t recognize as someone whom I’ve had any romantic interest in. She’s taller than your average Korean girl, and she’s quite thin. Her skin is fair and her hair is a dark auburn, around shoulder length, sort of like a long pixie cut, but more natural. She wore a white blouse and a yellow cardigan and a mini skirt with floral print. She also had a ribbon attached somewhere, but I can’t recall. It must be springtime.
It seems it was the weekend or a holiday because it was before noon yet there were a lot of people walking around in the city. We were down by the pier, which I can only assume is downtown Seattle. We had opted to take the bus downtown as to avoid any unnecessary parking troubles. She seemed quite excited from the moment we met at the bus stop. I intentionally avoided picking her up, as I felt it would seem uneventful to pick her up and then take the bus. This way, it would feel more like we were meeting for a date.
We had been walking around all day, I noticed she had a bag with her, so we must have went shopping at some point. She was one of those girls who was always three steps ahead of me, eager to explore and see as I casually strolled along. She often turned back with her anxious eyes, and her bright smile. We grabbed some food that we could eat while walking. I’m not sure what it was, but it was held between a white wrapper, kind of like how you would hold a pretzel. We then walked to the Olympic Sculpture Park, sat down, and talked. It was apparent that I didn’t know much about this girl, which probably was the same for her, but I knew that I enjoyed her presence.
We eventually went somewhere to eat dinner, and ended up riding the Ferris Wheel. It had gotten cold, so I gave her my cardigan to wrap around her legs. It sounds cliché, but it was a nice ending to our evening, as she grabbed my hand and lay her head against my shoulder making a single noise.
10 things about you people don’t really expect
10. I like to paint my nails. But darker colors make me look emo.
9. I may look serious and/or intimidating sometimes, but I’m really gentle. Unless I’m mad, then I go hulk on everyone’s ass.
8. I don’t find birthdays to be very special. I’d rather treat you well all 365 days instead of just the one.
7. Related to #8, I suck at giving gifts. If I was rich, it wouldn’t be a problem, but I’m not.
6. Related to #7, since I’m not rich, I like to give gifts that are handmade, such as pottery and hand stitched notebooks.
5. I’m a really picky eater, which is weird because most picky eaters are like toothpicks and I’m like a freaking tree.
4. I enjoy reading shoujo manga because I’m weird…. male.
3. I really enjoyed the twilight movies. It was weird because at the time I was in the middle of a love triangle… well more like a love square. Just imagine if Bella had picked Jacob after Edward had initially rejected her.
2. I really enjoy cooking for myself, but hate cooking for others. There’s just too much pressure.
1. I constantly think about love. I’m a hopeless romantic.
Your thoughts on disrespecting parents.
I think as a child of your parents, you should respect them to a certain point. They gave birth to you, raised you and supported you asking for nothing in return. Of course there are parents who are selfish and don’t do any of these things, and those parents aren’t really parents. They’re just adults with kids. But as long as your parents raised you up in a good way, you should always respect them.
I bet I was such an easy child. My parents are so lucky.
