Boys Suck?

Well I would be the first to say that is the case - especially considering I'm blogging instead of talking to Mr. Third Strike boy - I don't know what else to call him - I know the moniker puts him in a hole off the get go - but the thing is he is in a hole already... said he'd be online and well I want to go to bed - so get online or I'm moving on - I've got no patience for this shit - really I don't.

So here's the deal - if he goes south more so then his current residence I'm resigning my dating license and letting my dad take a go at screwing up my social life - and in the process being an awesome Mennonite daughter and allowing for an arranged marriage. . .

He gets until 8 and then I'm off to bed and he's off to somewhere other then my MSN. I am aware that I'm likely bitchy and all that because my day started off waiting 30 minutes for a bus to show - one that is suppose to run every 5-8minutes and then had to deal with the Skytrain and walking to the office etc... being late and then having to do the same thing in return 8 hours later - yay!! And on top of it all the snow means I can't get to the gym...

And yes that is Vancouver - looks fabulous doesn't it? Ya, no - bring back the flowering trees in January - that's fine with me, seriously.

Jenn, I am going to say this as what I hope is considered a friend.

You always talk about God's plans for your life, and in regards to your work/school life you put yourself through hell to try to get to the place where you think God wants you to be. You were almost never happy (at least to an outside person) and full of complaints, but willing to press on because you felt that was what God wanted for you. You held fast to the idea that God's plans were almost never easy and that things were not just going to drop into your lap, that you had to work for them and sacrifice.

Now in regards to your personal life, or relationship life, why is it that you hold to such totally opposite thinking? You generally shun the idea that you need to work and make sacrifices to find someone that you can spend you time/life with, instead thinking that God will provide the person when it is time.

The reality is, finding someone to be with is almost never that easy, and it usually takes work...not to mention the insane amount of work it generally takes to keep a relationship together over the long term.

If you are willing to go through hell to find God's path in your work life, and you beleive that is right, then you pretty much need to be willing to do the same in regards to relationships, because God is not going to just magically make someone appear for you to love...besides, knowing you and your struggles with this whole process, you would probably not accept him anyways.

One last thing, the only way the total man negativity, feminist ranting persona is going to find you the person that you say that you want, is if it came accompanied with a ful body leather suit, dominatrix mask and a whip to appeal to his secret dominatrix fetish that pretty much all guys have. Just like girls can sense if a guy is desperate, guys can sense if a girl is negative and that isn't exactly something that will attract people.

As much as I know it bothers you, dating and relationships are about superficial things to start, unless you share some major bonding life experience in a persian jail or something.

Im not sure or how it is that people think that negativity attracts? I dont know anyone that wants to be around someone that is negative. Except missery and he always loves company. It is easier for some one who is negative to bring someone down, than it is for a person with a pma (positive mental attitude) to bring someone up. People in general want people to relate to them and feel remorse for them. But why not take lifes troubles on the chin, shake it off and move on? You can only control two things, and that is your attitude and your actions. So why dwell on things that dont matter or that you cant change? Who cares what the weather is? Its not like you can wave a magic wand and it be a bright sun shinny day with no clounds in the sky. Why not look at it as a AWSOME day to be alive and count your blessings? Be thankful what it is that God has blessed you with! Such as that you have a job to pay for the things you want to do. We spend money like its our jobs but there are people in other places working for DOLLARS a day that would give anything to do a fraction of what we can. And im not just talking about hte U.S.. Be thankful that you can walk, run or swim. Be thankful that you can enjoy the smells and sights of your surroundings. Be thankful for your family and the people that are close to you. Be thankful that you can feel the warmth, love and tenderness of a hug from someone that you have made a differance in their life. I know that I sound like a broken record. But there are so many things to be thankful for but yet not many are. I will admit that I have in the past taken things for granted.
But I met a young man today who is blind and has been since birth. He does not let it affect his life, he has BIG dreams and is full of ambition! I dont even know how to relate to something like that because I still have my sight and everything else. I do know this thou I will not let the trivial, meaningless things keep me form what it is that God put me on this chunk of dirt to do!

You know Shelby, when you end such a "positive" comment with calling God's creation a "chunk of dirt," it kind of takes away from the positivity.
