The outside is cold

But she had no coat.

The ground is layered in wet snow

But she had no shoes.

The sky is thickly dark

But she has no way of seeing.

So I gave her a coat

One that is heavy to keep her warm with.

I gave her a pair of boots

Black and thick with fur so her feet were no longer wet.

And I gave her a flash light

So she could see before she trips.

This Christmas I lacked three gifts.

One for a friend who lives in the mountains of Alaska and is always cold.

Another for my brother in law who shovles in his Florida sandals.

And the last for my cousin who lives in the thick dark woods.

She dipped the bag

And the water turned red.

She blew away the steam

And put the cup to her lips.

Her hands were made warm

But her lips became red themselves.

She licked them saving the flavor

Far better than the water turned red.

Here’s The Thing

So here’s the thing…

You know how some girls (or guys) think they are ugly, but really they are like one of the most attractive people in the room? There’s a reason for that. It’s not because they have issues or they are too vain or full of pride or lack humility or even think less of themselves. How do I know? Because I’m one of them. Granted I know I am not the most attractive person in the room, but I also know that I’m not totally unattractive.

So what’s the reason?

The reason is this…

Either we are with someone, but we know deep down we can do so much better than the person we are with. Or it could be that we are not with anyone at all. So the questions we intend to task ourselves, is how can I do better, how can I find some body, how do I get his or her attention. Or, why can’t I do better, why can’t I find some body, why can’t I get his or her attention. Being single after two failed, short, long distant relationships I was constantly asking myself these questions. I felt ugly, that no one seemed to notice how pretty I was even when I tried hard by dressing nice and doing something different to my hair. I say was, because I no longer try, I no longer care.

Why?

Because I have to stay true and honest to myself before he can find me. Granted it sucks. Because, lets be honest, who wants to be patient and wait for the right one to come along. I don’t, well didn’t. I do better now. I’ve been working on myself. Sometime someone will notice, someone will look at me and he will like what he sees. The sound of that makes it all worth it; right? Yes. Because who wants failed relationships after failed relationships. If you keep going, trying to force it, it won’t be fun anymore. It won’t be worth the going because you would have worn yourself out. I started wearing myself out. Trying out different apps and meeting new people. Neither of those are me. Meeting new people terrifies me and I hate talking to people over the internet when I haven’t met them in person. I was forcing it. It just wasn’t me.

Last year was my first full of year of no dating. It’s actually been a total of one year one month and eleven days. It’s not easy being patient and I can’t say I don’t think bad about myself. Being twenty-four, but not looking my age, I think it’s hard for guys to notice me, to look at me and want to have a conversation with me. Without a drink in hand most people think I’m sixteen or even younger. With a drink in hand, people think I’m just twenty-one or they are probably thinking I am drinking illegally. I know right; totally sucks!

So, be yourself…the right guy or girl will see that.

But these are just my thoughts, a theory.

What are your thoughts?

Agatha Christie Book

I feel like when I read any book by this lady, she intends to put in side stories not pertaining to the murder in order to throw the reader off. Of course I have only read two of Agatha’s books and may be it’s just me. I’ve also noticed she wraps up the ending in one chapter revealing the whole story, the suspects, the why, and the how. I also like that everything takes place in Britian and even the writing has some British wording. Makes me want to go there all the more. I hope to be able to read more of her books. From what I understand she has written a lot of books. 

A book in a Day

It was less than 200 pages, so it wasn’t too hard to read in a Day. It was kind of an odd book.

SPOLIERS: Lark really does die

I think my favorite part about the whole thing was that Lark narrated her part of the story and her death. But one thing I didn’t understand was why the little girl could see dead people and hear them. That bit was left unexplained. It was just an odd book, interesting, but odd. 

3rd book review

A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley 

I watched the movie then read the book. Now I will rewatch the movie. I’ve been fascinated with India since I went in 2011 when I was 17. I’ve always longed to go back. Finding about this story was really cool! And good for me. I have adopted  brothers and a sister. They may not be from a different country, but they each had a hunt for wanting to know who they are and about their families. While it has hurt me in the end, I realize now, their lives could have been very different and not i n a good way. I recommend this book to everyone, especially if you have a history of adoption in any form.
