Please beware that when we say (girls/ladies/women) that we want to date, we do not mean marry you. We don’t mean to label you as our boyfriend immediately and cling on to you at your every breath.
We mean date. To date means to spend time with you. Not every waking hour, but some sort of consistent hanging out - getting to know you - quality time with a cool person and that dating may or may not include physical relations depending on both of our comfort levels. But it does mean that we would LIKE to work towards something greater, maybe boyfriend status, but most of us are not thinking of HE HAS TO BE THE ONE. Nah, most of us want to spend our precious moments with a really awesome person who gets us, but you know…
To “get” us that means we have to date… until we don’t wanna date any longer if that’s the outcome. So when you start freaking out and saying you’re not ready for a relationship, just breathe, pause and remember that that’s not what we want right now… we just want to get to know you!
Having one of those evenings where I almost sent a message saying “I ate pasta for you” — because that’s what it has come down to. Eating carbs for another person is a true show of selflessness. The act of ignoring the caloric content (especially when smothered in butter) on behalf of making the most of a dinner date with that other person, is a true show of solidarity. And admitting it is a true sign of desperation. Ugh.
Hey! My friends are competing for a grant to help improve LA’s arts and culture… If anyone is curious or lives in LA and would like to know more (or vote for their project if you like their idea), please follow the link.
Their idea: Play With Music Platform
PWMP is a comprehensive, scalable music platform for education. We’ll start as a pilot after school program & scale into a tablet app based platform.
PWMP will teach not only basic music skills, but the fundamentals of modern audio engineering, sound design, production & editing. Starting with a song structure provided by The New History, students will create & play their own song “parts”. They’ll choose an instrument (or use what is being taught in class), and each student will perform their own original “part” on video. Then they’ll build a “virtual band” by assembling their video performance with other videos made by classmates, and/or from our PWMP Database (a database of peers, including kids in other schools, & pros).
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”—The Little Prince (via thepussykitten)
A repost from years ago, but necessary… especially when you realize you were way too nice to someone. I don’t know if I believe in karma, but I’m learning my lessons this year. Now, for some grooves — headphones on and volume turned up. Play on, kids.
