The Book of days 4, 5 and 6 in the month of May
Facebook goes on vacation
Some time ago I decided to deactivate my facebook account, at least for the summer. I finally did it! I didn't expect to feel so lost though! for the past couple of days, since I deactivated FB I have had no desire to blog... I was just missing my FB account. I am feeling better now :) I just think that its not healthy to be so freaking addicted to a website! and I totally admit to being an addict! But on the other hand, I have been able to do other things instead.
Enter the Piano
I learned to play the piano... no jokes! I finally got around to sitting down by my keyboard I bought a while ago for good money. I never gave it much time because my guitar and facebook came first. This will happen no more! So I memorized some basic chords and played and sang to my hearts content. It was lovely, it is lovely and it will be lovely.
Love and respect yourself, show it with a song
I watched Glee the other day and realized what my song is! I figured since couples can have a song, individuals should be allowed to have songs. Its a song that reminds me how much I love myself, how I wish the best for me, because I am a unique individual (sounds totally obnoxious and self-absorbed... but I think a little self-respect is very very important to have. If you don't love yourself, then how can you expect anyone else to love you?) My song is Songbird (Eva Cassidy and Fleetwood Mac both performed it, but I am not sure who wrote it.... also, for those who watch Glee and may be wondering about my song choice I want to say I am not lesbian, not that that matters really, I just thought I would randomly add that).
On the subject of sex, or rather the choice not to have it
I got double rejected this week. Way to go! Never mind rejection by person number 1. It has happened so often it just sort of seems normal by now. In fact, I believe I start getting withdrawal symptoms if number 1 doesn't reject me regularly, so today I called this person up just to get rejected again. So I guess I got triple rejected.... you know I am grossly exaggerating the situation here though. But it just sounds more interesting that way.
Rejection by person number 2 happened earlier this week. A guy I was really interested told me that if I don't believe in sex before marriage then he can't see us going anywhere. Thank you sir. Well, at least he didn't compare me to a car he would never buy if he couldn't test drive it first! Anyways, let me get to the point here. So today I saw a front page news article which was basically about this woman, daughter of a religious leader in Iceland, who was a virgin when she got married and had only had sex with one man in her life. If that gets on the front page then why the heck am I not more famous!?! Not that my sex life is anyones business, but I think its stupid that having high standards and wanting to live a virtuous life is such a big deal! why can't that be normal!?! Sometimes I wish I could have been born before 1900 so that my standards weren't so .... peculiar to people. I can still respect myself even though I have been rejected because of my standards, because I know that by living by those standards I am doing what I believe is right. Otherwise I'd be cheating myself to conform to popular opinion. Actually, now that I think about it, it not so much that I was rejected, it was more that we didn't want the same thing so it didn't go anywhere. And I am pretty sure I know at least 5 guys who share my belief system and there are so many people I don't know yet... so there is hope! I would honestly love to be in a relationship. There, I said it, now I am going to drop it... let whatever happens happen, and smile all the while.
Bike riding is a joy
Moving on to a more ordinary subject. I got my bike out of the garage and pumped the tires full of air. And of course when I say my bike I mean my moms bike, and when I say I pumped the tires full of air I mean my dad pumped the tires full of air.... I did however ride the bike to my new place of work, without any help from my parents. I am fully capable of taking care of myself. I do enjoy quality time with dad in the garage getting moms bike she offered to lend me into shape.
I love riding that bike! Its probably one of my favorite things to do! especially when its sunny and I can wear a skirt and sunglasses. I love it! also, I love feeling my bum work for its hotness. I apologize for the language. I used to not have a bum, I used to have like a chicken leg, in the sense that you couldn't see where the thigh ended and the bum started... this was due to some extra largeness I was going through. Now I thoroughly enjoy having a bum. It may very well be my favorite part of my body. Ugh... it seems I have a preference for unordinary subjects to blog about... I will stop now.
