An online diary of someone who tends to forget easily.

Gyun-Wo Part 2: Dating Him

TGIF! My fave day of the week! Haha! Today I'm going to write about how I started dating 'Gyun-Wo'.


As I've mentioned a lot of times in this blog, I've been living alone (meaning without a boyfriend or special someone) for almost 4 years now. I never dated anyone except when I met my childhood sweetheart last January of this year. Aside from that, I never really dated anyone...until Gyun-Wo came into the picture. He's been my 'Crush' since August 2010 but it wasn't really that serious because I know that he's in a relationship that time, and I heard that they just broke up December of last year (2010).


We've been close friends thru texting and there are times when I felt that he's starting to like me. Until the time came when he asked me out on a date.


1st Date
He helped me pay the deposit fee for the Room that we (together with our colleagues) reserved online. It was for our beach outing last July. At first I told him to reserve a spot for me in the line of people at the bank while I'm filling up the deposit form. Then I gave him the form with the money and asked if he can just pay instead of me. I will just sit and wait for him. He was surprised because he didn't know I will do that. It's not a big deal but I find it funny. Knowing how he can be so shy at times, I laughed as I watched him pay for the deposit fee. When we got out of the bank, he said he thought that he will just help me. Haha! He bought me 'Taho' since we both like it and went home. He didn't noticed but I was so happy to be with him that time.



2nd Date
I was chatting with him when I told that I was asked by Mom to widthraw money that will be used in buying an owner type of jeep/vehicle and I might watch a movie with my sister after. Then he just suddenly said he wants to come and help me. At first I thought he's just kidding but he's not haha. So I let him help me widthraw the money and we met my sister. After meeting with Ann (my sister) she said that she just want to go home so we (me and Gyun-Wo) were left at the mall. Then we decided to watch the movie 'Rise of the Planets of the Apes'. While in the theater I forgot that the ketchup is placed on the right arm chair and because of my clumsiness and being forgetful I accidentally put my hand there so it was filled by ketchup. I asked him to give me tissue I can use to wipe the ketchup and since then he started calling me 'ketchup'.


3rd Date
We planned on watching the 5th series of the popular movie 'The Final Destination' so last August 28, Sunday we went out and watched it. It was a rainy Sunday, he waited for me in the gasoline station near our place and went to the mall. After watching the movie, I want to have dinner in KFC but there are a lot of people, it was so crowded and there is no available table so I just asked him if it's okay to have dinner in a Korean restaurant we once visited before with our friends. We had dinner together and went home. That's it.


We haven't dated again yet after the 3rd date. The reasons are the following:
There is no interesting movie that I want to watch.
I always have something to do every weekend especially every Saturday.
I don't like going out every Sunday.
I don't like going out on the same day he asked me to go out. 


In summary, we dated 3 times. I'm sure there will be more to come haha! I like being with him. I don't know what else to write to end this blog post, haha! It's been almost 4 years and I'm glad that there is someone like Gyun-Wo whom I can date. Before when I reject date invites it wasn't really because I'm not interested in the person (though its part of my reasons haha), but it's more of being afraid that one date could lead to something else. This time, I'm not afraid anymore. I like being with him. I like knowing more about him. He may not notice but I really do like him. ^^

Gyun-Wo Part 1: Meeting Him

Hello there! It's a good Thursday morning because I can now login to my Facebook account and my Wall posts are back! Yey! While I'm not so busy at work I decided to write today about my Gyun-Wo. Gyun-Wo is the male character in the well-known Korean movie 'My Sassy Girl'. The reason why I call him Gyun-Wo is because he sometimes tell me that I'm a sassy girl. When he said that I remember the movie and realized that some of the things I did and planning to do with him are similar to some of the scenes in the movie. So, I'll start writing about him now. ^^


Gyun-Wo Part 1 is more of introducing Gyun-Wo and how our story started.


WHO IS 'GYUN-WO'
He is my colleague, and a programmer. He is my long time crush (he just recently know about this but I told him I don't know if I still like him because I'm not sure if he's gay or not). He is a smart, nice, and funny man. I don't even know if I will use the word 'man' haha.. just kidding. Yes, he's my crush but I'm just a friend to him, well not until we started texting and we became close friends.




WHY I LIKE HIM
I don't know how to explain why I like him. My bestfriend who is also my colleague once asked me who is my crush among the male employees in our company. At first I said there was none because most of them are already in a relationship.Then she still asked what if the guy that used to like me (someone who is also working in the same company) doesn't have a GF, is there a possibility that I will like him? I answered 'No.' Then I said that if there is someone that I like and I can picture to be my BF that's 'Gyun-Wo'. I don't even know a lot of things about him but that time I was attracted to him. ^^


HOW DID YOU BECAME 'CLOSE FRIENDS'
Last May there is a document that we're working on at the office but because of our Internet connection, I can't send it to our boss. He stayed with me when everyone else went home. He stayed so he can assist me in case I need his help. When we went out of the office and walked to the jeep terminal, I was waiting for him to ask my number but instead I got a 'I don't memorize my number.' I was like 'Maybe he's really not interested in me.' so I just said I will just ask our other colleagues for his phone number. Then I sent him a message and he replied..and the texting begin.


We don't really talk with each other in the office unless I need something for him which is work related, and vice versa. Then last June some of our colleagues planned an outing. Most of them are already in a relationship so they were with their GF/BF and we were asked to be partners since we are both Single. I guess, the rest is history. That's how we started being close friends.


BTW, I wasn't really comfortable with my shoes that time, I even thought of asking him if I can borrow his shoes and he will wear mine but we're not close friends that time so I didn't do that. I even wanted to walk barefoot because I hated my shoes, I don't know why I chose to wear those that day! Haha ^^


That's all I can share for now. This is the first part of my 'Gyun-Wo' blog posts. I will tell you more about him/us SOON. ^^

A night without Facebook!

Hello again my dear online diary! I turned on my computer at home to check if my Facebook account is fixed but unfortunately I still get the 'Account Unavailable' message upon login. Facebook is a very addicting social networking site. It's like someone like me can't live a day without checking my account or without sharing anything on my FB Wall. Since I don't have much to do while I'm in front of my PC, I decided to write about random things that I can share with you.

If you will look at my blog posts under the 'Personal' category, you'll notice that most of them are about Love, and some are about me feeling the loneliness of being Single.

Well, I have good news! I think I'm in love! Haha! Yes I am. I have a lot of thoughts that I want to share in this blog about my love life! Thoughts that I'm still trying to organize so I can properly write about them one of these days. I'm planning on writing about the changes in my love life tonight and I hope I will be able to write properly haha!

As you may notice, I'm not really a PRO when it comes to blogging. I write using SIMPLE/BASIC ENGLISH. Sometimes I don't even know if my grammar is right or the choice of words is correct. I don't know how redundant I can be when it comes to my composition. The reason behind that is because I'm using Curlz MT font style, and I just want to write anything that will enter my mind. It's like writing using a pen. You can't just delete something unless you're using a pencil with eraser. I don't know... but I'm someone who doesn't like reading the written article again and again before posting it. I just want to write and write and post! Period. I think I've already mentioned about my blogging/writing style in some of my blog posts. I keep on telling about it because I really love reading the blogs of other people who can actually write and express their thoughts perfectly...in a very organized and interesting way.

Oh! BTW, I really love the new template I chose for my blog. I've always want to use a very simple template that looks like a diary, and I'm glad I found one! The title of my template is DIARY! Anyway, that's all I can say for this specific post. I'm still thinking what to share on my next posts about my LOVE LIFE. ^^

When you're about to finish reading this blog post, you will realize that the things I shared are about different things and the title I chose did not match what I just wrote! Haha! :p

Clumsy or Stupid Ghee?

Hello Blogger! It's been a while since I posted something about my life. I've been busy at work because of the tasks assigned to me plus the deadline which I don't know if we can meet. I have free time every weekend but I usually spend it watching 'Vampire Diaries' or 'Ghost Whisperer' series (I bought VD Season 1, GW Season 4 and Season 5 DVDs)


I have so many things I want to write and share in this blog but I don't have a lot of free time so I end up posting articles, videos, quotations. (I think I already mentioned this line before in my previous post Haha! Oh well.. see how forgetful I can be?) Anyway, I am now writing because I want to share the things I did because of my stupidity... I just hope my memory will remember everything that I want to mention in this post. :P


Spoons and Forks in Toilet Bowl
After lunch, my colleagues and I were about to wash the plates when I accidentally throw the utensils in the toilet bowl! I can't really explain how it happen and I don't know if it's just because of my clumsiness or stupidity. My colleagues find it funny though I really apologized for what happened. The next day, we brought new pairs of spoons and forks.


Money flew away from me
I'm in a tricycle holding a P20 and P50 plus a handkerchief in my left hand. When I tried to get my handkerchief I didn't noticed that the P50 flew away from me! The next thing I know, I only have the P20. 


University displayed in my Facebook profile is our school's hospital
My colleague make fun of me because she saw the name of the school I selected and displayed in my Facebook profile page. Guess what?! I studied in Angeles University Foundation, but the name displayed on my profile is Angeles University Foundation Medical Center! I studied in a hospital?!


No more posts displayed on my Wall + I can't login on my Facebook account
I tried to delete a game post on my FB Wall but I don't know what the hell happened because my Wall suddenly became EMPTY and when my friends viewed it they said there is something like 'There are no more posts to show..' displayed. The worst thing is, I can't login anymore! I As I try to login this is what I get: 

"Account Unavailable: Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience."

I will try again later hoping it will be fixed SOON!


Hmmm.. what else... I will write and post more when my memory remember them. As of now, these are some of what I can share. These happened recently that's why they are still fresh in my memory! Haha! They're not really because of stupidity, right? Most of the people who have witnessed and known about these things said that they find it funny how clumsy and stupid I can be sometimes. :P

Reasons for Blogging - reblogged

Good Morning! While searching for something interesting that I can share on my blog, I found this great article and decided to share it here. It’s about the psychological reasons why people blog.

5 psychological reasons for blogging
Author: Graham Jones

Blogging is, of course, great for business. Indeed, many successful businesses put blogging central to their online activities. There is plenty of evidence which shows that blogging is related to search engine success, social media success and – importantly – financial success. Blogging works. However, there is more to blogging than might be obvious at first. Here are five reasons why blogging can help your brain.

1. Increase Memory
There is evidence that writing helps your memory. Just think – when you want to do some shopping you often write a list…and then forget to take the list to the shop…! But you remember what you went to buy anyway – the mere fact of writing the list helped your brain organizes its memory for the important things. Writing is linked to memory because it helps create an additional level of activity for your brain. Not only is there the thought itself, but now the translation of that thought into words and into the physical activity of writing. This provides our brain with several extra layers of information to search through when you want to recall something. Using a blog to write your ideas, thoughts, notes from books you have read – anything you want really – can help you remember those things because the act of writing will help create those additional layers of activity in your brain.

2. Improve Communication Abilities
Many business people need to present ideas and information – whether that is formally or informally during internal meetings. The problem is that for many people their message does not come across clearly because even though they know what they want to say, they haven’t rehearsed it in any way. The result is a bit of a muddle. Writing a blog helps you clarify your thoughts, get them into order and begins to lay down the neural pathways necessary for presenting your argument. If you have important information to convey at work, writing a blog about it in advance can help you get your message across clearly in person because the act of blogging helps prepare your brain.

3. Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Sometimes you just want to get things off your chest. You would like to shout about it or jump up and down. Well, strange as it may seem shouting and jumping up and down will help you feel better. But so too will writing about it. One of the techniques used to help people overcome anxiety or depression is to write a journal of their thoughts. Usually they never have to look at what they have written ever again – the mere act of writing has helped them feel better. If you are anxious or suffer from stress, writing a blog – even a private one which only you can view – can help you reduce those psychological pressures on you.

4. Enhance Self-Esteem
Many psychological difficulties people have in their lives can be traced back to poor self-esteem and a sense of worthlessness. Blogging can help people increase their self-awareness and create greater self-perception. Simply having readers who like your writings, as well as people who provide positive comments can all help increase self-esteem and make you feel a more worthwhile individual.

5. Raise Intelligence
Evidence suggests that the more you read and write, the better your cognitive abilities become. In schools, for instance, the best readers tend to be the best at mathematics; and the best readers tend to be the best at writing tests too. Recent evidence in British schools shows that when children write regular blog posts, their literacy abilities rise and their test results get better. That backs previous studies which show that when people write a great deal, their intellectual capacity also increases. As a result, blogging can be a good way of making your brain work better – for many things.

BONUS Reason….!
Not only can blogging help your cognitive abilities and make you feel better about yourself, it can also provide another excellent psychological boost. Blogging is social – people comment, write to you, phone you up and connect with you in a variety of ways. And evidence shows that the more social you are, the healthier you are and the better you feel. In other words, blogging can boost your psychological health as well.

So, blogging can be much more beneficial than you might think. Yes it can help search engine rankings, but just as importantly it can help your brain.

LOVE

“Love, means trusting yourself with someone who has seen you at your worst and loves you in anyway. It means teasing each other and laughs at inside jokes nobody but only the two of you understand. It means feeling safe enough to talk about anything and having the patience to work out disagreement. It means counting on someone who sympathizes when you had a bad day, worries about you when you’re gone too long and always welcomes you with open arms no matter what.”

Random Quotes 09272011

"So, please, just be patient. I'm so afraid to care about someone. I know it seems like I'm this strong girl who can get through everything, but inside I'm very fragile."

"I don't want to go out and meet new people. I don't want to. I'm tired of it, and I'm scared. I already got my heart broken one too many times. I'm not ready to hand it out again. I guess what I'm afraid of is that I'll find someone new and fall in love with them and then get hurt again. I don't want to go through that. I really don't. I mean, I do want someone to love and to be by my side, but I'm just afraid of falling in love again. I'm a walking contradiction: I want to fall in love, but at the same time, I don't want to experience the hurt and pain that is associated with it."

"Fear makes people do very silly things."

I stared at her.

When I see you the World stops. It stops and all that exists for me is you and my eyes staring at you. There’s nothing else. No noise, no other people, no thoughts or worries, no yesterday, no tomorrow. The World just stops and it is a beautiful place and there is only you. Just you, and my eyes staring at you.

I stared.

When you’re gone, the World starts again, and I don’t like it as much. I can live in it, but I don’t like it. I just walk around in it and wait to see you again and wait for it to stop again. I love it when it stops. It’s the best fucking thing I’ve ever known or ever felt, the best thing, and that, beautiful Girl, is why I stare at you.”

“But, of course, it isn’t really Good-bye, because the Forest will always be there… and anybody who is Friendly with Bears can find it.” — A.A. Milne (The House at Pooh Corner)

“She also considered very seriously what she would look like in a little cottage in the middle of the forest, dressed in a melancholy gray and holding communion only with the birds and trees; a life of retirement away from the vain world; a life into which no man came. It had its attractions, but she decided that gray did not suit her.” — A.A. Milne (Once on a Time)

“No matter what happens in life, be good to people. Being good to people is a wonderful legacy to leave behind.” — Taylor Swift

I know my flaws before other people point them out to me.
Taylor Swift

For the first time in months, I felt together. Sharp. In hurting myself, I had at last found a way to release the pressure.
 
But it was more than that. I was now different. I felt different. I’d discovered a way to control my feelings. Just because self-mutilation wasn’t deemed an acceptable coping mechanism didn’t mean I was going to stop doing it. –Victoria Leatham

Love always ends differently and it always begins differently - especially with me.
Taylor Swift

“How tall do we stand, with the world in our hands? We were only kids, and we were the best of friends, and we hoped for the best, and let go of the rest.” - Yellowcard

“Better to inflict pain on myself than to let other people do it.” –Tracy Thompson

“Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.” –Josephine Hart

“Friendship required us to venture off the map of the known world, into areas that ancient cartographers couldn’t have imagined when they had inked those words Here there be monsters”

A friend is a second self, another I.” –Zeno

“Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

You Know It’s Love When

 
holding hands

You know it’s love when

  • the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think of before you go to bed is him/her.
  • the very thought of being without them makes you want to cry
  • whenever you are feeling down, all you have to do is imagine their cute little face and you begin to smile :)
  • you get that feeling of fuzzy e rushy love (i.e. you feel all funny inside, you get butterflies in your tummy)
  • you would give anything just for time to stop so you can be with them just a few more minutes….
  • thinking of him/her sleeping brings you the most peaceful, sweetest feeling
  • you can communicate with them without speaking
  • you make up little things that only the both of you know about
  • all you want is to make them happy
  • you get a rush just from seeing them, or a touch. better than any drug
  • they can make you cry so easily, be it from sadness or happiness
  • you can never imagine even being with anyone else

The truth about true love

  • If you find yourself in love with someone who does not love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing wrong with you. Love just didn’t choose to rest in the other person’s heart.
  • If you find someone else in love with you and you don’t love him, feel honored that love came and called at your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot return.
  • If you fall in love with another, and he falls in love with you, and then love chooses to leave, do not try to reclaim it or to assess blame. Let it go. There is a reason and there is a meaning. You will know in time.
  • Remember that you don’t choose love. LOVE CHOOSES YOU. All you can really do is accept it for all its mystery when it comes into your life. Feel the way it fills you to overflowing, then reach out and give it away. Give it back to the person who brought it alive in you. Give it to others who deem poor in spirit. Give it to the world around you in anyway you can. This is where many lovers go wrong. Having been so long without love, they understand love only as a need. They see their hearts as empty places that will be filled by love, and they begin to look at love as something that flows to them rather than from them. Remember this, and keep it to your heart. Love has its own time, its own seasons, and its own reason for coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it, or reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it arrives and give it away when it comes to you. But if it chooses to leave from your heart or from the heart of your lover, there is nothing you can do and there is nothing you should do.
  • Love always had been and always will be a mystery. Be glad that it came to live for a moment in your life. If you keep your heart open it will come again.

Love or Infatuation?

  • Infatuation is instant desire. It is one set of glands calling to another.
  • Love is a friendship that has caught fire. It takes root and grows, one day at a time.
  • Infatuation is marked by a feeling of insecurity. You are excited and eager, but not genuinely happy. There are nagging doubts, unanswered questions, little bits and pieces about your beloved that you would just as soon not examine too closely. It might spoil the dream.
  • Love is quiet understanding and the mature acceptance of imperfection. It is real. It gives you strength and grows beyond you to bolster your beloved. You are warmed by his/her presence even when he/she is away. Miles do not separate you. You want him/her nearer, but near or far, you know he/she is yours and you can wait.
  • Love says, “Be patient. Do not panic. Plan your future with confidence.”
  • Infatuation has an element of sexual excitement. If you are honest, you can admit it is difficult to be in one another’s company unless you are sure it will end – in intimacy.
  • Love is the maturation of friendship. You must be friends before you can be lovers.
  • Infatuation lacks confidence. When he/she is away you wonder if he/she is cheating. Sometimes you check.
  • Love means trust. You are calm, secure and unthreatened. Your beloved one feels that also and that makes them even more trustworthy.
  • Infatuation might lead you to do things you will regret later, but love never will.
  • Love is an upper. It makes you look up. It makes you think up. It makes you a better person.

Ten questions to ask yourself about your relationship

  • What do I want from this relationship?
  • Have I told him/her what is important to me in a relationship?
  • Does he/she tell me what is important to him/her in a relationship?
  • Am I happy with the way things are?
  • What type of changes would make it better?
  • Can we talk about touching?
  • Do I feel good about the touching we do?
  • Am I feeling pressured or am I pressuring?
  • How does the relationship affect other things or people in my life?
  • Who can I talk to when things get tough?

The definition of mature love

  • both are individuals apart from the other
  • each accepts the fact that neither is perfect
  • the relationship is strong in tough times as well as happy times

  • each person continues to grow as an independent human being
  • there is joy in giving as well as receiving

Infatuation is not love

  • the person depends on the relationship for self esteem
  • the person takes more from the relationship than they give
  • each is jealous of the others separate activities
  • the relationship drains the person of energy
  • the person is afraid that the other person will lose interest in them
  • the person can only think of the other person

ELL Quote

It’s okay to cry, it’s okay to be sad about it. It’s okay to miss him, and it’s okay to wish you did something differently. But never blame yourself for how things turned out. Never tell yourself you can’t do better, and never tell yourself this is end of the road. Fate has a time and place for all of us and nothing you can do or say will change that. Sure, it’s okay to fall, but it’s never okay to stay down.

Positive People

When those around you are inspired, they will inspire you. When those around you are positive, they will positively shift you. When those around you smile at you, it auto-encourages a smile back from you. When others are respectful of you, it creates appreciation and confidence in you. If you need extra positivity make it a priority to actively seek and befriend positive people.

Inspiring Quote 001

If you judge a book by its cover, you limit the possibilities and relationships that could one day be willing to love, support, and boost you. The outside doesn't define us. That's something we have no control over. What defines who we really are and inspires others is our personality, hard work, positive behavior, compassion, and love. - Everyday Life Lessons
