Agnessa!! When I think back about Agnessa, I am pretty much intrigued. I am intrigued because I always saw her taking the same bus as me in the morning to go to school and she was always quiet but at the same time she was so cute. She had the kind of aura that said;
“Don’t you dare talk to me.”
Is it love?, is it lust? Or is it infatuation? Is it money?
First of all before going further lets just break those three things down. When it comes to lust, we are talking about how the trends and the media affects the way we value things and the influence that it has on our decision makings about what to wear as well as in term of relationships. For instance there is a stereotype in media that portrays a view of how a sexy woman or man looks like. However its just an illusion and something that media puts in our heads. Trust me we cannot believe everything that media says or put forward. The thing is that things are bigger that this and in one way or the other there is a hidden curriculum behind everything that they portray.
The way things are going nowadays is crazy. A kid will ask you for a phone. Yes! A real one! Then when they get fed up of it they will ask you for a tablet. Afterwards, they will ask you for a laptop. Next to the laptop comes the PlayStation. And next to these which are the latest ones which are the drones and the hover boards. The thing is that all those things cost money and they want them badly.
Everybody has lost a bond or connection with someone for whom they had great affection or shared a lot of good times together. You may find yourself in this situation with an ex friend, ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend. It is a fascinating thing and weird at the same time. Why is it fascinating, well sometimes we make decisions to move on! Move on people, move on in our career and in our relationships. So the destination is always unknown. You may say that this guy is born to fail but at the end of the day he is the most successful one. The weird part is that you have been friends for a long time and suddenly for no reason or because something shitty happen, we don’t talk anymore. And the weirdest part most of the time is like you can’t even smell or look at each other anymore. Some will even do back peeking but for me i don’t really do stuffs like that. I believe if you had a bond with someone, it was with that particular person and not the whole world. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. No worries! After we will say to ourselves that we don’t care and we mean it.
Should life be that complicated? Why should we work over and over again to get money? Why isn’t it love for instance. We all work hard to get money and food. Yes! It is true that money contributes a lot to make us happy. But nowadays, the methods that we human beings are using to get money goes against our moral values. Nowadays money can be evil and deadly.
If today you are in a place where you feel you need more and you are not comfortable enough. Please do not get dramatic over it. Your time will come. Your time will come into the most unexpected way. You never know what is around the corner. Maybe your true and absolute happiness is not into the plans that you have in mind.
There are so many very successful people today who came from down. There are people such as famous actors and writers who were once homeless however they are now millionaires. It may seem impossible for you to reach that level but hey that’s what life is all about. Expect the unexpected. You may not see it now but in the future this kind of success may reach you.
Waking up in the morning! Doing the same thing over and over again. Is it really what we are best at?
Everyday most of us wake up in the morning. Take a shower, brush our teeth and take a breakfast. Sometimes we do not even have enough time to take our breakfast. After breakfast we are off to work. While going to work we are stuck in the traffic. When we reach work we meet our boss and colleagues. After work we drive or take a train to home. In the scenario where we are driving home, we are stuck in the jam again. Here is our daily life routine.
Recently I was with one of my friends. We were having a great time together and somehow through our conversation we came to a point where we ended up talking about love. We always love to hear and talk about each other’s love stories. In a good way of course! At a point of time, my friend asked me the following question:
“What is your best love story?’
Well! Here is the thing! The way the question was set up is in a pretty simply way. But the reality is that it is much more complicated to me when it comes to that question. The reason is simply because I have had a lot of love stories. However I decided to answer the question.
The story here is about the time when I was in boarding school. The situation in boarding school is when you stay in the school for few months before holidays then we will be allowed to go back home. During that time I met a girl not to say ‘the’ girl. Her name was Aphrodite!
Aphrodite and I had this kind of connection that was really undeniable. Her friends will always tease her about the fact that we will never be able to stay away from each other. The connection was that clear. If there is something going on with me, it can be that I am in a bad mood or sick, she will know it instantly without me saying anything and it was vice versa. This is a connection that I haven’t found again to be honest.
Here is the love story of a friend of mine. He is one of my best friends in fact. He fell in love with a very beautiful young lady name Amelia. Amelia is a very nice and understanding person. This is the reason why we are good friends as well. Amelia has been dating my friend for the past three years and my friend has finally proposed to tie a knot with her. Of course she said yes!
What have I done today? Honestly speaking? Nothing! I woke up today listening to Bruno Mars! Ha-ha! And guess which song? No idea? Lazy song! Damn this song is just really awesome! It puts you straight into a lazy mood.
So, the first thing that I did as soon as I woke up is taking a look at my phone. Then I took my shower as usual. Grab a cup of coffee! Then opened my laptop! After spending a few hours on Facebook, I ordered a pizza for my lunch! I was thinking about doing some drawing, and then I said to myself;
Seriously i do not know what to say right now! I have a friend whose leaving the country in two days time! She has finished her studies! I am glad i knew her.
Our friendship is just awesome. We have this kind of connection that makes us very comfortable around each other. But the thing is that i did not thought that her departure would make me so emotional. We threw her a farewell party yesterday and it was one of my friend's birthday as well. We were five of us. We are so close despite that we all come from far and from different countries. We had a dinner all together then we went to enjoy a bit. We enjoyed as if there was no tomorrow to be honest.
There is no place better than home.It is true that when you live abroad you may have fun, money, a great job and a lot of friends. But the thing is that home will always be home. Sometimes you will sit down thinking about your friends and family and say to yourself what are they doing.
The kind of love that you get at home is not the same. It is just beyond our imaginations. So many times we take what others do for us as something small. What I mean by that is we will wake up having our breakfast ready and everything just follow up like that. This is our daily routine and we do not appreciate what we have enough. It is only when we leave the nest that we realise that doing those things is not compulsory and not easy. At that moment then we realise that we were living like a king all this time. Here I am mostly talking about the family situations.
Friendship is a good thing when we do it for the right reason. In fact, you do not need a reason to be friend with someone! you can be friend with someone because you like the way they do their things or you share the same mode of thinking.
According to me, friendship is something that comes from the heart. It is a written contract from inside where you say to yourself that you will be there for someone no matter what the situation is. So many times we see a lot of people together as best friends and then suddenly everything collapse. Most of the time, it is for silly reasons.
Let's hope that soon everything will get better in New Zealand. There has been an earthquake that has happened and it was a really powerful one. Some areas have been really damaged according to the news. I have friends there as well and thank god they are all fine! Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.
The kind of pressure that the society put on ourselves nowadays is huge people. I mean really huge! what is going on! It is sad to say that but there are certain things that are hard to understand.
Sometimes I really feel that we live in a world of lies and illusions. While we are growing up we are taught to listen to our parents and be obeidient. Most of the time our parents will tell us very nice stories. When we asked questions during that time, our surrounding most of the time will ask us not too ask too much questions. Now I understand why! It's because life will give you the answer.
You are so close but yet so far! There was a time when you were the one who were removing my doubts but since you've left me you have reinstalled that doubt. Every single day I have been waiting for you. Now that you are back, I am scared! Scared about our so-called love. I love you but do you feel the same? Before your departure everything was so great! Now that you came back everything seem so different.
My best friend is someone who is very talkative. He likes to take initiatives and he has a kind of aura that attracts people to come and open up to him. When he meets someone new, he can tell to that person exactly what perfume is he using and what brand of shoes and clothing he is wearing. I will not hide that every time he does that, the people go crazy and are instantly fond of him. Mostly girls! Ha-ha! Well you can say that there is a beauty in everything that he does. From his dress code to his eloquence!
Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are! It is true that friends share the same values, beliefs and culture most of the time. But to what extent is this quote true. How much can you resemble your friends? I don't know for sure how much do friends share the same characteristics but what I can tell you is that the opposites attract each other.
Very often, we are very judgemental about a group of people. In other words, If I am sitting down with my friends at the beach and they are consuming beer for instance, in the eyes of the society it definitely means that I am a huge beer consumer as well. However, the reality is that I am just chilling with a group of friends. Why is it like we have to create scenarios in our heads whereby we already chose where to put one another. Why is it like when you see someone from a different skin color or dress code you conclusive make the deduction that this person is from that background and the other person is like that. We have created myths that are so strong that nowadays when we look at someone, we do not really get to know who that person really is. We conclusively draw our conclusions based on those myths.
Let's move together at every step!
