Day 26 - What kind of person attracts you.

April 14, 2014

If this is just for general admiration, it would be someone who is kind without looking at others’ social standing, respect everyone, have a sense of justice, hardworking, knowledgeable and have opinions on most of the things, hold on to their principles and takes care of him/herself.

But if you are talking about someone whom I would be able to see myself settling down with (you know what I mean), in addition to the above, the person must be serious yet fun, independent, can and be willing to talk about anything with me, respecting my privacy (and my insecurities and my interests and my independence as a result of three years growing up in an all-girls school and my moodiness and maybe my high maintenance level LOL), able to be himself when he is around me, able to make me be myself when I am around him and willing to fight for us and for other things that are right. Kindly refer to this post for more information =)

I will repeat that he must be able to take care of himself. One, I still believe physical attraction is important, though not the first once we have settled down. Two, I tend to lose respect to someone, in this case would be a guy, who cannot even keep himself presentable and just appear sloppily and whatever in front of others. I think this is disrespectful to others who have made effort to see you or to make a dress code.

Of course he must not be an abuser, psychologically unstable and even worse, a psychopath.

Also, definitely Christian who love God with all his heart (and by this I am not saying someone who reads Bible or religious books everytime, and even, makes sessions to discuss these books for a date courtship whatever you would like to say it as the latter just screamed Shakespeare to me. Being socially and culturally aware are important for me). It was only two days ago when I said this: Don’t play with fire if you don’t want to get burnt.

Plus.. preferably in the same race and similar socio-economic class as mine. Can find a common place for us to settle down.

Oh yeah, and see me as his equal, not his subordinate.

Day 25 - Someone who fascinates you and why.

April 13, 2014

I am generally fascinated by someone who are not afraid in showing others what they believe in through a gentle manner. That is how they shine, that is how they differentiate themselves from others.

This guy.

Mesut Oezil. Arsenal #11. German national football team #8.

Actually I am only fascinated when he recites prayer on the side of the field whenever he is going to play with the national team (I don’t watch Arsenal’s games, or Real’s or Schalke’s or Werder Bremen’s when he was there but I suppose he also does this before his club’s games). He is not afraid to show his faith to this world.

The Christian counterpart of this quality, I think, is Kaka. He even openly put on shirts and other apparels that state that he is Christian.

image

I understand that people with faith, in some parts of this world, are persecuted either physically or mentally. Among all qualities that I have or desire to have (such as hardwork and perseverance - which can easily be described by the likes of Idina Menzel, Lea Salonga, Lea Michele, Angela Montenegro and both TJ Thyne and Jack Hodgins), I think staying firm in your faith is not easy at this era in which (Christian) faith has been belittled and constantly challenged. So I hope these two can give me strength to stay true to my faith.

The reason why I mentioned Oezil first is only because he plays for Germany, so I often see him when I watch their matches and all, and this, much more remembered.. Kaka plays for Brazil and AC Milan, two teams that I do not support (plus told you that I did not watch Real even when Oezil was - and Khedira is still there either), so even though I constantly admire him for the quality decribed above somewhat he was not the first person that came into my mind.

PS. I have totally forgotten about this challenge. Ok, ok, I’ll pay my dues by continuing.

Just took a test for fun here. Maybe this is simply confirmatory. I hope my choices were not influenced by the fact that I feel strongly similar to her, which caused me to choose something that really Rachel but not me. =D
But yeah, when she first came around, whenever she was acting seriously, I was like either finding a fictional soul sister or feeling like I got punched hard in the stomach. But it was back then.. I had stopped watching the show once their first batch of seniors graduated WMHS.

PS. According to this quiz, Rachel and Santana only differ by their relationship with their parents. Rachel is definitely the favorite child, it was very clear in the Valentine’s episode in season 3, and Santana has better relationship with her parents when she is older.

do not be mediocre, be extraordinary.
surprise them.
be different, be strange.
be someone they would kill to be.

do not tell her you love her if you are not ready for her to call you at 3 AM freaking out.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot handle her father or mother.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot love her at her worse.
do not tell her you love her if you only crave for her curves, not her mind.
do not tell her you love her if you cannot deal with her mood swings.
do not tell her you love her just to have sex.

So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it.
