For some reason..

I feel like many of this generation’s women have a hard time communicating their feelings to their husbands, boyfriends, etc. and it can end up causing a lot of problems; miscommunication and misunderstanding are two of the biggest reasons for relational arguments and disagreements.

This is probably because of the rise in social media use; people don’t know how to talk anymore! Therefore, a lot of feelings and emotions end up thrown into subliminal Facebook statuses or quote pictures on Instagram that somehow relate to the way she is feeling at the time.

Do guys take the hint? Well, we don’t really know! 

I guess we post these things hoping that they will be correctly translated – ha!

So here:

-Maybe she wants you to respond to her text message(s) or call to see what’s up.

-Maybe she wants to hang out with you.

-Maybe she wants to feel like you appreciate her and care about her.

-Maybe she wants to go out on a date!

-Maybe she wants you to just tell her how you feel and stop being so confusing.

-Maybe she just wants you to notice her.

-Maybe she wants to be your girlfriend.

-Maybe she’s mad and wants you to see that you really hurt her feelings (whether you think you did or not).

-Maybe she’s sick and wants a cup of tea.

-Maybe she wants you to do yoga with her.

-Maybe she wants you to be proud enough to take her out in public – in the daytime.

-Maybe she wants to stop feeling like the side chick or the second choice.

-Maybe she loves you and wants to tell you but doesn’t know how.

So, there you go. It’s a partial women-men dictionary.

This post is random, I know.

Or maybe it’s subliminal? 🙂




Sleeping Doesn’t Come Easy…

“How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes,

I struggle to find any truth in your lies.

And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know;

My weakness I feel I must finally show.

Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all,

But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall.

Lend me your eyes; I can change what you see,

But your soul you must keep totally free.

Har har, har har. Har har, har har.”

The lyrics of Awake My Soul by Mumford & Sons haunt me this morning as I cannot sleep. I think the mixture of medicines I’ve been given for my back either make me extremely drowsy or keep me from getting a wink of sleep. It seems as though I am tired during the day and then awake at night – nocturnal much?  My mom came into my room this morning and laid with me for a while after she put ice on my back (say 2:30 a.m.) and at around 4:00 we got up and ate. So here I am blogging at 4:49 a.m. pretty drowsy, I must say.

Justin talked to me for a bit before bed which was nice; he’s been busy lately and we haven’t had much time to talk. I felt better after hearing his voice, even if it was only for a little while. Mom talked to me the whole time she was laying with me; neither of us could sleep. Now Jersey is beside me on the couch, completely knocked out – I’m so jealous!

Luckily, in these past few days I’ve been thinking about how lucky I am to have such amazing people in my life to take care of me and my back. My mom, first of all, has been so wonderful – taking me to the ER, getting my pills, rotating between ice and heat, talking to me and keeping my company, getting my food, etc. I’m so glad I don’t have to do it all by myself – I would probably just cry.

Hopefully I will get to feeling better soon; I hate missing work and school! On a more positive note, though, I ordered my prom dress this weekend, though, and I can’t wait for it to arrive so I can bedazzle it for May 5th (:

Here are some pictures that have made me smile lately:

Sing, Sing, Sing…

“We were barely eighteen when we crossed collective hearts,

It was cold, but it got warm when you barely crossed my eye.

And you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance;

I knew nothing of romance  but it was love at second sight.

I swear when I grow up, I won’t just buy you a rose,

I will buy the flower shop and you will never be lonely.

For even if the sun stops waking up over the fields,

I will not leave, I will not leave ’til it’s on time.

So just take my hand; You know that I will never leave your side.”  ♥

This song is called The Gambler by FUN; it was introduced to me by Justin as another favorite of ours. I’m sorry for my absence recently – I have been struggling with some terrible back pain and mostly laying down and/or sleeping. Luckily, I’ve made up all my missed schoolwork for this week – whew! My mom has been a godsend during all of this, too; she got my medicine for me, took me to the doctor’s, retrieved ice/heat for me, etc. etc. etc. I’ve been lucky this week.

Last time I posted, it was Justin’s and my anniversary and I was going to spend the weekend at his house. It was a great weekend and he had started to feel better by then, luckily. We had a blast just laying around watching movies, talking, and reading some magazines. I also met his friends, Jeremy and Chris, and Shayla visited for an hour or so, too. I’ll be seeing him again on March 30 for our Cardinal Chorale concert on the 31st at Muskingum University. Can’t wait (:

Otherwise, I’m attempting to work this weekend but I called off for today – my back pain is still killing me despite the muscle relaxer and steroid ): Not sure what will happen next; I hope it goes away. It looks like spring has sprung! The weather is great, even with the spring thunderstorms, and the flowers are beginning to bloom. Before my back got really bad (last weekend), I was able to capture a few pictures of my friend spring. (:




Quote-Reading This Morning….

“I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend someone is,

they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.”

I guess that reading this quote made me realize that no matter what, you are going to get hurt. Maybe hurting is a part of life – like we have to hurt to remember what being happy feels like? Going to Justin’s this weekend definitely reminded me of what happiness feels like – to get to do absolutely NOTHING at all but relax, attack pomegranates, and play Jenga. I feel like I’m always going and doing…. it makes it so difficult to just sit and do nothing when I know that there is something I could be doing.

But about being hurt. Yeah, it’s a given – you will get hurt. To be honest, though, there are people who take advantage of that and hurt you often. That is different than someone hurting you once or twice. I feel like there are sometimes you just HAVE to GET MAD!  I have this tendency to let things go but then stew over them by myself until I get so overwhelmed with feelings and then …

E X P L O D E!

I realized, though, that it is much easier to always remember that people are going to make mistakes and sometimes those mistakes may hurt you. While you don’t always have to get mad or upset, you certainly don’t have to be walked on either. Sometimes standing up for yourself is the hardest yet most rewarding thing you can do. It isn’t always easy and it doesn’t always fix the problem at hand, but when people think that you are weak, they can so simply make you feel that way!

Don’t let them. You are worth it.
