oh let me count the ways :]

well, my boyfriend wrote this incredibly adorable message to me on facebook the other day, 
so of course, instead of messaging him back, i'm gonna one-up him by blogging about him. :P

Devin is the most amazing boyfriend BECAUSE...

he always scratches my back
he likes to drive (unlike me, so this works out quite nicely)
he loves watching the same epic tv shows that i do. we always have such a good time watching White Collar or SVU while we're cuddling or eating pizza. haha :p
he never fails to make me laugh with his immature, but awesome, jokes
he gets so stinkin worried whenever he can't get a hold of me. it's adorable.
he has rad style. he always be lookin fly.
he thinks my shrunken Chinese feet are cute.
he can lift me up like i weigh nothing.
he loves my booty.
he makes me want to be a better person.
he is always so nice to everyone he meets :] (he's the nice one in the relationship. i'm the one who lays down the law. lol)
he knows the scriptures like the back of his hand.
he always picks me up a milkshake when he goes to Carl's.
he makes sure that i know he loves me and that he misses me when we're away from each other.

not to mention

i can be completely myself around him
and my family ADORES him.

he's a winner.

so take that, babe!

test? tomorrow? nahh.

sometimes i just want to disappear inside of myself and go to that creative place where anything is possible...
and then just write and write and write my troubles away.

sometimes i wish i was a princess with one of those goofy pointy hats that were so fashionable. it would be pink. as would be my dress. 

and i would be trapped in a cave on a cliff side.. unable to escape because of the big green dragon who lived there.

but me and the dragon would become friends.. because he can obviously talk. and i would choose to stay there because we would have such lovely conversations.
and when the knight would come to rescue me, he just wouldn't understand.
they never do.

and sometimes i wish i had the power to read minds... nobody would know but me, of course. it would be my secret. 
i would be the relatable and under appreciated protagonist of my life's story.
life would be hard, but i would always help people with their problems.. anonymously. getting no reward other than the joy of my sneaking mind-reading service. 

and on occasion i would use my powers for vengeance.  
completely selfish, i know, but i have to believable. i can't do good ALL the time.
i have to have a tragic flaw, you see.. and mine will be jealousy. or maybe selfishness..

and sometimes i feel like magic is flying out of my fingers when i type.. 

so i better stop before the magic does. 

til next time.

i'm fightin the good fight

as of late, i've come to know some things.
or rather, i've been reminded of things i already knew.

firstly, there are a lot of immature people in this world.  that's just how it is. and not immature in the "haha you're so dumb" sense. but quite literally, there are those who act as though they are their shoe size, not their age.

these people may hurt you. consciously or unconsciously.

sometimes all you can do is take a deep breath, say a prayer, and hope that you can be the better person.

not the bitter person.

oh no you didn't

i'd like to say that i'm not a jealous person.. 
but that's just not true.

i'd WANT to say that I AM that cool girl that just lets her boyfriend hang out with all the pretty, flirty girls and doesn't care because she is so amazingly exciting and chill all at the same time.

but i'm not.


i'm the crazy girlfriend.

something to work on i guess. lol.
