"This is why it hurts the way it hurts. You have too many words in your head. There are too many ways to describe the way you feel. You will never have the luxury of a dull ache. You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much."
ever since my summer has started man, i’ve done absolutely nothing except dick around. well, to be fair, my break started less than a week ago, but still!
but today i got a haircut, so i’m marking today as the day that i stop doing nothing! i haven’t worked out since break started. i’ve been trying to find a gym, but all the gyms are so expensive! the only one worth my while is Planet Fitness cus there’s no contract and the start-up cost is cheap. most of the other gyms require a 12-month commitment. i’d love to do that, but i only need a gym for the summer.
i’ve been checking Planet Fitness out online tho, and i don’t think i like it very much. it’s so… purple. plus there’s a “Lunk” alarm?! the heck is that? i’ve gotten mixed reviews from my friends also. the conclusion i’ve drawn, is that this gym doesn’t really cater to people who are serious their fitness… i mean, they have a pizza and bagel day once a month!! plus the Lunk alarm thing! they sound an alarm, whenever a “Lunk” is around.. look it up. also, in the ads, Planet Fitness doesn’t even want to be called a gym. idk how i feel about that.
but hey. it’s cheap. i hope they have a bunch of free weights and barbells and stuff. hehe stupid
"The secret isn’t to find someone you love spending time with - I love spending time with a lot of people. The secret isn’t to find someone that you find attractive - I find a lot of people attractive for many different reasons. The secret isn’t to find someone who is nice - there are tons of nice people in the world. The secret is to find someone who wants exactly what you want. Someone who is ready to give you all they’ve got, and in turn be ready to accept all the love you have to give. The world is filled with people in relationship of “love you mores” & “I have to act mean so they will like me back” or “I am just not ready.” Please do not waste any more of your precious time. You are an amazing creature. You deserve to be loved until your insides melt. Don’t give up on all the things you want. When you meet the right person you will have zero doubt in your mind. Zero."

so.. i’ve just wasted the last hour or so just practicing my handwriting in different fonts hehe. well, not wasted.. spent.
anywho, you know what’s funny? on my Asian American Studies final, i used so many different fonts. it seemed that i had forgotten how to write. you see, usually, when i write, i write in all capital letters. but around that time, i had just started relearning cursive again. so throughout the final, i would alternate between writing in all caps to writing in cursive to writing how people regularly write, with both lower and capital letters hehe. my prof. must’ve been so confused. i really couldn’t help it tho. i was actually quite frustrated, because i couldn’t stick to one font! cus usually i write very slowly. but it was crunch time on the final, so my handwriting just went crazy man.
the day this pen runs out of ink, i will be very sad :C because it’s the only ink cartridge i have. also, i’m using a very old pen, so i don’t know if i’ll be able to find another ink cartridge for this pen :’c
Just finished reading This Is How You Lose Her.
Some things i liked:
I liked the title of each chapter. A couple of chapters were named after some of Yunior’s lovers.
I also liked how many of his lovers discover that he’s cheating on them by looking thru a journal that he keeps. While I was reading the book, I kept on wondering to myself, “why does he write such incriminating things in his journal?” or “why does he keep a journal in the first place?” In the last chapter it becomes clear why; he has an affinity for story telling.
Hehe there’re other things I liked too, but I’ll leave it at that
