Just letting you know I'll be doing a friends cut soon :( I hate doing these because I know some people would feel upset at me (like I sometimes did when someone I liked cut me) but lately I feel like I don't know half of my t-list. Some of you guys comment pretty often but... I just don't know what to say in your journals? With some others I haven't really connected, and it's been months since the last friending meme so.... I'M SORRY T________________T. Why do I feel so guilty? ;_; Please don't think I dislike you or that I think you're bad people!! You're all lovely and good!

“Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love. People in love sometimes say, I was swept of my feet. Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU. Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience.

But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else.

This is when relationships breakdown.

The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.

I’m not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later because (listen carefully to this) the key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable. Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.

Remember this always: the universe determines who walks into your life. It is up to YOU to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go!”

Teeth Cleaning


Yesterday we sent Pina and Juka to the vet to have their teeth cleaned . They had already run lots of test analysis to check they were alright and would respond just fine to the anesthetics, but the risk was still there . I was scared as shit but thankfully everything went smoothly . The only one who had some trouble was Juka, because he is allergic to one of the components to the anesthetic, so he is still stressed over the procedure . Pina came running from the cages room running towards the reception XDDDD. She was like anything ever happened to her! It must be her thyroid medication *lol*.

She started crying and getting really anxious when she got home, though. We could barely stand it anymore. After around an hour or her crying and shuffling around, we thought that maybe she wanted to pee. She did. She peed and pooed for 20 minutes. We had COMPELTELY FORGOTTEN Pina has really strong manners, so she didn't pee or poo her cage for the whole day. She doesn't even dare to pee in the house, even though we aren't strict about it. She's just like that .

Anyway, here's a before-after picture .





Two days ago I went grocery shopping around the neighborhood with mom and found this cute agenda from 47Street , which is a widely known teen brand here in Argentina (and they basically have the best designs on agendas). They are a tad expensive, but they are worth it . I specially like the organization of this one . The only thing it's lacking is a monthly calendar, but hey, I have the one I have built myself! .



+3 moreCollapse )




Now I'm going to get ready because tonight I'm hanging out with Antonella, my childhood friend that now lives 5 blocks from the place where I study Japanese!
It was so nice seeing her again...! .
And she seems to be the same gentle, humble girl she used to be .

Anyway, see you after the final exams are over!

Mood: Upset.
Listening to: ---.
Thinking: 5 more days... 5 more days...
Weather: Sunny .

My post was supposed to be quite positive today but... I just feel really bitchy and upset at the moment and need to let it all out, to the point that I feel like I need advice from you guys.

I never truly lie on my journal (or twitter). I'm just the way you perceive me here: generally very positive, always looking for the good in every person and situation. And as a result of being this way, sometimes I overlook some things that shouldn't be overlooked and end up forgiving/letting pass things that shouldn't be forgiven/let pass. Basically, I feel foolish.

My nearby friends never make the effort to meet up with me when we're barely 30 minutes away from each other's place, and when we do, the things we originally planned never happen. Remember the photoshoot Wada and Cata promised me 2 years ago? Well yeah, it never happened, but we are supposed to do it this month and they haven't even contacted me ever since I ASKED THEM WHEN THEY WANTED TO DO IT AT THE BEGINING OF JUNE.

I feel like I'm not standing for myself. Like I'm not making people respect me and I'm considering my friends people who don't even move a finger to see me and catch up with life.

How is it possible that Marie and Sae, who are over another fucking continent, would meet up with me more frequently than these two if they ever had a chance to be physically close to me? And we don't even need anything complicated: bedroom, snacks and movie times starts rolling and we don't even spend 1 fucking hour planning it. We have a 5 hour difference, unni works a lot, Marinnie studies a lot, I study, do pilates, Japanese and Korean and we STILL find the time to catch up and keep in touch! I don't think they (my nearby friends) have en excuse: if they love and care about me, they WILL make a space in their lives for me, right? Well, that isn't happening, and I'm really tired of going after them, always asking "hey, when can we meet up? I miss you guys".

What do you think about this guys? What are your 'friendship standards'?
