So I finished my second exam yesterday and it was such a great feeling. The exam itself was especially long and mentally draining- everyone just looked dead by the end of it. I basically took the night off with some of my closest friends in Cali and we went out for drinks and then went home .... to continue our wine night. It was so much fun and a much needed escape from reality! I have one final left on Monday and then I fly home. So that is my school update.
Also, I've kind of been frozen as far as posts go because I have been busy with school and I just wasn't sure what to write about. I mean I mostly blog for myself anyway, but I do want to take into consideration what people actually enjoy reading from me. That being said, I'm always open to suggestions. In the mean time, I logged onto Tumblr recently (for the first time in a long time). I rarely use it anymore, but I realized I had questions in my inbox that have been neglected for far too long. They did get me thinking a little bit, so I figured I would answer those questions here.
1. Have you ever let a guy come in between you and a friend?
Never. I mean to be honest, I've only had one friendship where something like that could have happened, but it didn't. One thing that all of my friends have in common is their realness. My friends and I have always been able to be real with each other and tell each other exactly how we feel about every situation. So here's my short story: Once upon a time I dated a guy and then it stopped. Then I met a girl and became really good friends with her ... she and the guy started hanging out and really enjoyed each other's company. She came up to me one day and asked me how I would feel if something more happened. I told her very honestly that I probably wouldn't be okay with it (I had my reasons), the thought of it bothered me. We talked some more, she told me how she felt. I told her the same. In the end, they never ended up going out ... but I've always respected her for it. It wasn't her decision to not pursue anything that I respected (ultimately it was up to her), but the fact that she had enough respect for our friendship to tell me what was going on. She could have been shady and sneaky and not tell me anything. Our friendship wasn't like that though- she told me everything. This was years ago and she's still one of my closest friends because we both know we're on that level where we completely trust each other and have each other's back. I could never be friends with someone that I couldn't talk to about those situations. It's really not that difficult to be open and honest with friends (if the friendship is real).
2. What do you look for in a relationship?
To be honest, I'm attracted to different types of people. I don't really have a "type", just standards. I look for someone that is respectful. He can't just be respectful towards me, because that's a given; I wouldn't be anywhere near him if he wasn't. I mostly pay attention to see how he is with other people ... that's when you get a better glimpse into his actual character. I don't want someone that only knows how to treat me. He need to be good to his family, his friends, random people on the street, homeless people ... EVERYBODY. This is probably one of the few things I won't compromise. I won't be with an individual that doesn't know how to treat people.
So that's that and hopefully it gave you guys a better glimpse into ... whatever it is this life of mine consists of. I said months ago that I would try to get more "personal" ... and this is me trying. I don't know how much further I'll go .. but we shall see ! Hope you all enjoyed and are having a wonderful week:)
