The Contractual Pros And Cons To Falling In Love

Standard

Thought Catalog

Section A: Appropriate Public Displays of affection

1. Hand holding

Pro: Your ineffectual fist will fit easily in his, as his hands are substantially larger. His mugs radiate heat as if they had a handle and were filled with chai tea. He will squeeze your hand just a smidgen tighter when walking past a questionable individual. You will inevitably feel safe.

Con: You will be rendered incapable of locating a worthwhile resting point for your hands while walking in his absence. You will fight the urge to grab a random stranger’s hand, if only to feel some phalanx warmth. You will feel a smidgen more vulnerable when walking past a questionable individual. You will miss him. 

2. Leaning Against His Arm/Chest

Pro: As you lean into him he turns his body towards yours and you are able to sink into complete acceptance. You feel wanted by him and the stability…

Tests

One said you had no clue at all and another one gave me a result: “He knows for sure.” Read a few articles and forced us to be those, forced you to have done such things. Closed those which wrote about things I didn’t want to read – those things that would bring me back to reality. Answered just so I could have the result I wanted. And how does one forget that site which told me you “L-word” me. Not. Just a few more  days and I’ll be over it not unless you Harvey Milk quote me which you will never ever in your wildest dreams do. (And you rarely sleep) So, this is how it feels.

The Cat and the Bag

I won’t let you out unless you tell me clearly you want to. That you specifically request for air to breathe ’cause you won’t hear me sigh. I’ll love it and I can finally have this weight I carry as heavy as a feather. I won’t let you out even if you want it out. I won’t let you out if it’s escape that you want. I want you out, now.

Blessed

Standard

They say write, in bursts and so here I am. I have not posted anything about the activities and the teams I had been to, about people I worked with for the past year and months and about everything I have considered to have fallen at the right place and at the right time. I am blessed, I have always been but I am more thankful now to having my eyes open to all the good things that come to me.

I miss you all and you know I will always miss you! I have learned from you and our experience that real success can never be measured by the judgment of others, it is the fulfillment we feel after all the sacrifices we have made. I haven’t gotten on stage for years after high school and you have definitely made my “comeback” more memorable than I have ever imagined. And if I get the chance to go on stage once more, I’d definitely choose all of you.  That even after the event, and the grades were released, we still feel the adrenaline everytime we think of our rehearsals and the actual performance. Thank you guys!

Not having any re-shuffling next year actually was a great idea! I want to spend more time with you guys and definitely have the best parties ever! I know most of us have just known each other this year but I am confident enough to say that we guys have broken the walls that separated us into three sections before.  Thank you guys for always keeping boring classes the funniest ones! For your efforts of diverting our professors attention just so we could skip recitation and for everything guys! Thank you!

 

To my 1-2Pol2 family,

For keeping our friendship despite the separation, for being the people I go to when I face the hardest times of the junior year, for always making me laugh and for making me feel like I belong to a family, thank you. I trust in us and I know we will forever remain friends and family. I love you guys so much!

Thinking of how this group started makes me smile and remembering how we got to name ourselves “Dimples” makes me laugh the hardest! You guys are my best-est college friends! I miss you guys and I love you. Thank you for everything. Let’s go back to our chill days, 2nd sem, next academic year, okay?

The team which took me to places I never thought I’d get the permission from my parents to go to. For making me work for my passion – kids. For trusting in me and for giving me the room to breathe and rest whenever stress comes, never came the time I regretted being with you and knowing you guys. For the satisfaction I get after each event and for giving me the chance to put smiles (even laughter) on the faces of children. I can never thank you enough for all the things mentioned (and not). Thank you so much!

You guys always make me special by the comments I receive not because you appreciate me but because I know you guys give out the most sincere reactions. Thank you for giving me a “non-work-feeling” work. You guys inspire me to always work harder and never quit and that I can do great things with the help of everyone that would later on become beneficial for the entire nation. For not making us your campaign machinery and instead, developing our skills. For being the coolest co-interns and bosses! Thank you for everything!

My second family. I may meet a lot of different persons but you will always be my family. I miss you and though we may not see each other, I know nothing will ever change. I love you guys and I miss you so much! I have started to know I am showered with so much blessings by the Lord since I became friends with you. I will never ever replace you people!

To my real family,

Haha ew. I can’t find words that will put it in another way. Thank you for always believing in me and allowing me to discover my potential. For being so patient with me and for teaching me the best lessons no else could have possibly taught me better. God loves me because he gave me you guys. I will never get tired of saying and showing how much I love you!

You can never inspire others if you alone cannot find an inspiration for yourself. I have been blessed with so much. Thank you Lord.
