The weekend!

So the weekend is nearly over and I really should be getting ready for this barbecue I have to go, but am so tired. It’s been a bit of a brilliant weekend…I have always loved Halloween even though I am not America and am secretly glad that it’s becoming bigger here! =D

Before I start to bore you all with details of what I did. I’m writing mainly because I had such a 360 with a lot of stuff that has been going with my life. I went to a wedding as well and it was such an eye opener! I am sick of being miserable over guys who just waste time. Watching this wedding (and it was really short too…I didn’t know weddings these days could take so little time!) really just made me open my eyes and made me feel like I want to get married…To the right person at the right time of course. It was a fantastic feeling!

People though…very interesting creatures. I think this weekend also proved to me though as a culture we are becoming more self obsessed and it is not really serving us well as a community. People taking photos of themselves being “introspective” while ignoring the pains of their friends and the world. Apparently someone having a crush on someone who clearly isn’t interested in them is more important than someone who is actually going through nasty break-up? All night I had to listen to love songs that I really didn’t want too.

Anyways, all of this is making me realise how much of a good person I want to  stay and be and how much I want to be with a good person. Not someone who claims to be good, but is never given the opportunity because the girls want all of your friends.

8)      Five things that are most important to you in a future mate

I crave honesty now more than anything else! I have realised how important it is and how much respect you have for the other person when you are honest.
A good heart, he can be as broody as he wants, but as long as he has a good heart and genuinely cares for others and myself of course!
An open mind, I know a variety of people in my life and my partner would NEED to be open minded to all of it.
Being polite is a huge plus for me, not necessarily opens doors and lifts his pinkie when he drinks tea. I have been with someone who would literally sulk every time we were around my friends, but if we were around HIS friends I had to be charming and entertaining.
A good sense of humour, I don’t think that I could ever live with someone who had no sense of humour…Oh that’s a horrible thought! lol

9)      Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU and that living alone allows you to do (For example, I sometimes dance around the house with my cat to Frank Sinatra)

Oh my, I think everything I do is weird any ways! I always feel that if you can’t do it around your partner…well that’s a bit sad. So I am not really sure what my weird single behaviour is to be honest. There are plenty of things that I wouldn’t do if front of others, but if I can’t do it in front of my partner than it would probably mean I wouldn’t trust them. I have nothing to hide from a partner!

10)   Google the meaning of your name and talk about how it fits or doesn’t fit you

Lauren may be a given name or surname. The name’s meaning may be “Laurel tree”, “sweet of honor” or “victory of wisdom”.

Well I’m not a tree, hehe…I think I agree with the other two though, sweet of honor is definitely me, even when the rest of the world calls me crazy I know I am honourable and that’s why they think I’m crazy. Instead of being with everyone else and talking behind their backs, I ask them of what is going on. Victory of Wisdom is something that I believe I am starting to believe in myself only now.

11)   Your worst/funniest/most embarrassing date

It’s funny because I don’t really date. Every single one of my relationships, I’ve never actually ‘dated’ them, we just spent time casually together and decided that we like each other. The most embarrassing type dates I find myself in, is when a guy will invite me to go see a movie and he hasn’t made it clear that HE intends it to be a date. I rock up thinking I’m just hanging with a friend and he thinks it’s date…That has made for quite a few awkward situations.

12)   Your proudest accomplishment

My proudest achievement is going back to studies to pursue in a career I want to do, rather than being in a job that was physically making me ill just to get money. I just wish I could find a job in this field now!

13)   Describe how you met the last person you texted and talk about your friendship/relationship

Well he’s my cousin by blood, so that’s pretty simple to explain, lol

14)   Describe the last moment you felt really, truly blissful

I have had quite a few moments over the last couple of months. I do have two different moments that stand out though. One was when I dressed as Katarina from LoL to a conventions, that was an amazing day and I was so happy. My feet were killing at the end of the day, but I just LOVED it all! It was an amazing day.

The second was on New Year’s Eve. I debated if what I was doing was alright or not and now I know that it was an amazing! I definitely made the right decision for myself. I salsa the night away, it was amazing! I kept dancing with random men, which was not the safest plan, guaranteed…I had just assumed that my friends knew this guys…They did not! lol.
