This Blissful Race

And there’s the rub

You finally let go of the thing you couldn’t have because you want to move on. And you have and you did move on and you’re doing really well. What if the thing you wanted but could never have suddenly creeps back into your life and is now yours for the taking? Will you go for it, even if it means letting go of the new life you built?

Friday Five!
1. Celebrated a girlfriend’s birthday with drinks and making new friends.
2. Met three (count them 3!) Italian guys who were a hoot to hang out with. They invited me to come out today. Probably not going out tonight though, I think I’d rather stay in and read a book in this weather.
3. I also signed up for a destination race in January! I’ll probably talk more about it in the coming days.
4. Revived a friendship. This was pretty random and surprising. I might finally find the change I am looking for career-wise.
5. Also did a thing with a tinder match. No, not that thing. It’s just that I usually don’t tell much personal stuff over chat. For the first time, I did something different and just gave him my personal details. It felt like an interview, to be honest, but at the same time, it lessens the “mind games” that’s always stressing me out in the intro phase. I don’t know if the direct approach will get me the “love of my life” but you’ll never get what you want if you keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results, right? (I’m referring to flirting and mind games). But hey, we’ll see.
Gonna be snuggled up my sheets and reading a NEW book tonight (ok, that’s really what’s keeping me from going out. Book nerd = me.)
Have a good weekend everyone!

Thank you mom!

My mom told me that an aunt was crazily trying to reach her the past days. My dad was uneasy about talking to her sister and just passed the burden to my mom, who said nothing of it immediately.

Turns out a nephew of my uncle (note: my cousin’s cousin) saw me on Facebook and developed some sort of a crush on me. He reached out to my uncle and aunt to ask about getting introduced and all.

He is my cousin’s cousin. This makes him my 2nd cousin or at least related. What. The. Fucking. Hell.

My mom actually fixed it before she told me about it. She told my aunt upfront that that guy was definitely not my type so don’t even bother. He was probably one of the unknown Facebook invites that I never responded to. I immediately opened my Facebook and declined every hanging invite on queue. I already did a massive cleanup some time back so there are no unknowns on my list. Plus I don’t immediately accept an invite even if he’s a relative. I’m asian, I have loads of relatives.

So thank God my mom is on boarded with my type and isn’t the typical asian mom who will force her daughter to marry “while they can still have kids” or something. Thank God for no parental pressure to settle down. Thank God for moms who won’t settle for just anyone for their kids.
