Birthdays and Graduations

My boyfriend/fiancé/ boyancé (teehee) turned 25 on Friday, and I haven't figured out what to get him for his birthday yet.

It's the hardest thing I ever had to decide, even harder than deciding what to eat (Something I am completely incapable of doing, read this if you have the same problem) I think that's what you get when you start dating someone less than a week after you first meet them, and that's what you get for being with someone you barely have anything in common with.

He is into everything geeky and I am....a nerd - more or less. I don't like video games and I don't read comics, I don't watch movies all that much nor do I watch TV shows. And this list right there pretty much sums up my boyancé's life.

I came across this on Pinterest, and well, I think dealing with the fact that no one is perfect would make life easier for everyone. I mean, we all need the reminder every now and then, thinking that people should exactly know what you want, how you feel and what you need is just totally and completely wrong - I need the reminder (constantly) myself. I need to remind myself not to expect, especially from those I love so much.

(I also sometimes need to remind myself that my life shouldn't revolve around anyone but shhh)

There was more to this post, but I kind of forgot what I was about to write, and if I save it as a draft I will never get to post it...so I might as well.

PS I am graduating this semester, but guess who beat me to it? Farah! And I am so very, very happy for her!

I really like the way you write <3
Hmm, if he's a nerd you should have no problem finding some kinda cool tech gizmo..? Maybe combined with something that screams LOVE :)

oh, I think that quote is about as close as you're going to get to what relationships are really like, I love it. No one is perfect and no ones relationship is ever perfect even if it seems like it to others. Perfect is subjective anyway right :)

The dress is adorned with phoenix and dragon styles, which symbolize the balance between male and female Cheongsam power. The standard dress to get a Chinese groom is really a black silk coat worn over a blue rode with dragon patterns on it. The headgear with the Chinese Style groom consists of a black hat with tassels on it.
