The nine types of guys you’ll fall in love with

In life, there are many different things that you’ll experience, all kinds of things. You’ll experience hate, anger, sadness, happiness, confusion, elation, the list will go on and on. But there is one thing that no matter how much you deny it, shake your head, or lock it up and toss it into a corner, you will feel it.

And that, my dear friends, is love.

Fierce, unforgiving, warm, annoying, gentle, and impossible to ever understand and comprehend, love is the thing that makes the world go round.

The 51st Street Man

I decided that this week, I’d post up a part of a story that I’m working on that’ll hopefully one day go somewhere if I actually try, and the scene was something that I suddenly pictured in my head for my story while we were talking in class about blogs. I’m not sure how, but it came to me, and once it did, I just had to get it down.

The noise of the familiar hustle and bustle of New York was the first thing to assault my ears as I stepped out onto the fire escape.

A Deck of Swords

Reading the Oedipus Rex cycle, or the Sophacles trilogy, there were three questions I devised to ask myself about the book, one question for each section. And while I spent awhile thinking of ways to answer the questions, I figured I might as well do something I’m used to doing.

So I pulled out the three cards I thought best answered them. Continue reading

Why do I do this to myself

“The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves.”

– Oedipus Rex 

I don’t like crying in public, not many people do. But no matter what, if a movie, book, show, or song is sad to me, I will cry. I’m a really emoitonal, relatable person like that. If it’s sad and pulls at my heart strings, I will sit there, my lips will tremble, and then I’ll start to cry. But if there’s one thing that gets me everytime, its unrequited love.

Can we think about how cool it is to have a heart

And what I mean by this is let’s seriously take a moment and think about how amazing it is that we have a heart on the left side of our chest.

We learn in science that the heart is a muscle that will forever beat until we die. It is an unstoppable force that refuses to quit under no circumstances to keep our body moving, all it asks is that we keep it healthy and avoid any pain. But then, that’s kind of hard, isn’t it? We’re taught our heart is a muscle, but we always talk about how our heart hurts, or how it aches in response to our emotions, when its not supposed to feel.

But it does. Or at least, I think so.

I’ve seen some videos lately about how we should appreciate the little things in life, and I think our hearts deserve a standing ovation because we wouldn’t be able to do that without it. The heart is what keeps us moving, and with it, we can feel too. And that brings me to the point that I said it’s amazing our heart is on the left side of our chest.

Because it smucking is.

Every person is born for some unknown reason with our heart on the left side, and we’re just left with some weird, empty cavern on the right side of our chest like it got cheated out on some awesome deal at an arcade. But if all of our hearts are on the left, that means when someone faces you opposite, it’s on the right of you, isn’t it? And when you go in to hug someone, their heart fills up that space, and yours does the same. If you want to test it out, go get up and hug someone, right now.

I think our heart is on the left, and the reason why we don’t have two to fill it up, is because there’s someone meant to do it for us. We have that empty space because it’s meant to be filled. Our hearts already know what they’re doing before we even realize it. So when you feel that lonely feeling, your heart just wants a buddy, and all you have to do is hug someone to feel better. And when you find that special someone to give that hug too, you can feel their heart beating alongside yours, together, filling up that space we thought means nothing.

So heart, keep beating buddy, because we know you rock.
