people should not brag that they are “lucky to be in love with their best friend” when they’ve only become best friends after they started dating. its cool when you start to date your best friend, but.. if you’re in a relationship and dont eventually elevate your SO to BFFL status anyway, its a problem.
what i mean is, your SO is of course going to be one of your best friends. you are not “lucky”. you are not a special “lucky” couple, get over it.
Today, I walked to the bus stop with an umbrella out like a little old asian lady. It was super sunny, and I had no hat. I used to criticize people who did so ‘cause it looked so silly (I’m not alone). But if you bring light to the phenomena of 40-year-old asian ladies looking like they’re 20.. its justified. They’re doing something right.
I put my peanut mm’s in the farthest corner of my room so they’re less accessible and I wouldn’t devour them too quickly. But now when I huddle over them in the little corner stuffing my face, I imagine the whole picture to look like a shameful hopeless drug addict in an alley.
“When you feel happy, really happy, it somehow seems that you’ve always been happy and that you’ll always be happy. The same is often true when you feel sad, or lonely, or depressed, or broke, or sick, or scared. Something, perhaps, to remember.”—
When I see people post insanely fat gluttonous meals (i.e. hogtown poutine), I get borderline grossed-out by how they think it’s okay. I would imagine eating their meals, and regret every bite.
I wasn’t always like this though.. my mentality for food used to be very yolo. Now that I’m tracking down what I’m eating everyday, I can’t yolo anymore. I have to deal with the guilt that comes with reviewing these food diaries everyday. I have to eat like a responsible adult.
edit: But no worries! “Responsible” goes both ways. I make great efforts in cooking delicious balanced meals : ) (note my ig @vilaulau) I just don’t enjoy this guilt I feel when I overeat. BUT I’LL GET OVER IT.
there are some common practices in my relationship that i thought was okay to apply to outsiders. but really aren’t. and are actually slightly awkward when i look back at myself. i.e., asking what people are having for lunch everyday.
