One Week.

So, its been one week since I have written anything here.

My Weekend: Completely consumed by my brothers birthday. (Even though it was Monday and over looked from a weekend of non-stop going.)

I really don’t have the urge to do homework. I know i really should (and I will), but I don’t want to.

It’s totally time for October break.

Time for a laugh.

 

 

Good day.

Marriage Blog.

I wrote it for Geib’s class. I feel completely weird writing about marriage, for i don’t want to married for a while. Here it goes:

Marriage. Love. Logic. Deep, heavy subjects.

When Mr. Geib said a blog on arranged marriages, and my automatic response was: “Why? Could he not see that people are more into marriages because of either love or lust?”

I sat and thought while I was at the gym, and found my true opinion. Arranged marriages can work, yet the true, deep, passionate love marriages are better.

Arranged marriages are the parents idea of a logical spouse for their child. Honestly, I think this is one of the best ways to be married – if you lived way back when.  Yes, arranged marriages work and can last forever, but the love is acquired and not the glue to the relationship.

I believe that you should be married for the deep passion you get every time you see the one you want to be with forever. That deep connection between two people is unexplainable.

I look at my parents marriage. My mom and dad both had been dating for a few years and living together. They finally decided that they wanted to be together forever, so they went off and got married, then told everyone latter on.  Their love is still that “high school love” – seeing each other and having your heart jump off a cliff. They are completely in love and incredibly compatible.

A marriage that has that “spark” and the lasting compatibility, is the perfect marriage in my eyes.

It’s the fact of following your heart, and not your head. And as a matter of fact, that is how I am. I believe in following your heart. And by following your heart for something you really care about, no matter the topic, you make the wisest choice. To anyone else it could be the absolutely wrong option that ruins your life, but it is your heart that matters, not your audiences.

This is the same in marriage. If it is a true love based marriage, no matter what the choice is, the marriage can with stand anything.

Love is in your heart. Its something you can acquire with anyone. But once you find that one person you want to spend your life with, you fall completely “head over heels.”

Look at this:

“I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy.
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do…”
–Truly Madly Deeply (Savage Garden)

Can you ask for anything more in a marriage? This explains the love within a true marriage; the undying love between two living beings; the love we all should wish for.

Heart or Head

Today in English, we were given a prompt about a name defending his grandparents arranged marriage. we were also asked what was more important to us: intellect or emotion.

to flow up today, as any sensible female would, i watched Pride and Prejudice.

i do have to say that it is the ultimate chick flick. you can sit there and say they are meant for each other (Mr. Darcy and Lizzie Bennet, that is). from the first moment they touched, it began the flickering light that has never died.

i look at the movie (so what if it isn’t exactly like the novel – it was a good movie none the less), and see that Lizze is a very intellectual girl who puts her brain and stubbornness before her heart. from this she was left half- hearted.

even with the vow, of his (Mr. Darcy) love to her (Lizzie), she lets her intellect shine through and wash away her emotions.

but by the end of the movie, she has completely understood her own heart, and realized that she is madly in love with Mr. Darcy.

this basically (or at least to me) proves my point between “heart and head.” yes you do need someone who will be your right arm for the rest of your life, but you need the spark to start the fire. with love, the relationship (i mean marriage) will stand strong forever, leaving the two recipients constant companions for the rest of their lives. this thought, doesn’t happen very often in present day. many relationships least days, are bounded my lust instead of love.

every female must envy Elizabeth Bennent forever.

i know i certainly do. its every little girls dream to have prince charming sweep her off her feet and live happily ever after.

Today is Friday.

the AP test was to day. verdict: i didn’t die. haha… i thought i would. i thought it would be a whole heck of a lot harder too. but i probably did really bad on it. i hate tests. i never do good on them.

but i am in the mood for mashed sweet potatoes. but i have now where to get them.

tangents are on my mind.

tomorrow is my mini vaction (or at least in the afternoon). i get away for the normalities of my life and get to have some fun. beach, movie, dinner, time with michael, fun with friends. better than a week vaction to Hawaii (well, thats a bad comparison because i have never been to Hawaii).

myspace.com is over rated.

i can’t spell.  but thats nothing new.

i would love to go off on some rant, but i searching through the cobwebs in my brain.

my constantstomach pains aren’t going away, even with taking prevacid. 7 days, and the medicine still isn’t working yet. i just hope its nothing serious. my doctor is cool, and i am tired of him being the bad news bearer.

im off.

tired.

adios.
