Hermes’s Advice

I have been, for a very long time, thinking of why I should forgive my families, who wouldn’t even bother to listen to reasoning, or my well-being. I’m not going to be a damsel in distress saying that they totally abandon me. No, they did not. They fed me well. When they remember, they’ll celebrate my birthday however they wishes. Most of the time, it’s up to their mood, if they’re happy and remember, then maybe we’ll dine out and then I’ll be forced to listen to their arguments after that. Or, if they’re not happy but they remember, then the best they did was gave me a cold shoulder, in other words, in their own way, tried to ignore me (apparently this is for the best). Well, not much I can say if they don’t remember right?

14 Signs You’re Dating An Introvert

“Their default level of scrutiny toward ANY plan you throw their way is always extremely high.” Totally me. Haha

Thought Catalog

1. You are the designated talking head of the relationship in social settings. You are the one who orders the appetizer, explains how you met, answers questions about the vacation you guys took, sets up plans, tells the server that the food is fine, and even tells his stories for him. Generally, you take care of all questions directed at both of you, and at least half of the questions directed at the introvert.

2. They never loudly embarrass you in public. A super-perk of dating an introvert: he never loses control and makes a big scene in front of a crowd of friends and strangers. Downside: half your friends’ first impression of him is that he didn’t like them, found them boring, judged them, and was laughing at inside jokes with himself all night. (Also see: #11 — “Sometimes you can’t tell if they’re upset with you.”)

3. “Fights”…

Stumbled upon this video. It was posted by one of my friends in Facebook and well, as we all know, it appeared on my newsfeed.
I was really touched by it. Still the first thing that crossed my mind was, “If this were really going to happen, usually one would be wary of their belonging or welfare or anything”.
I mean, a total stranger? How would anyone be sure that this guy is not a thief, molester, or anything that might bring you harm?

Of course, we are all dying and none of us knows the hour, which could be decades away or tomorrow; and we know that we need to live our lives to the fullest everyday. But I mean, really – who can play that mental game or live like that?

– Will Schwalbe –

          Who could? When you’re living your life, you don’t think much about dying. The happiness of living (unless you’re upset) will naturally prevent you from thinking of death. At least, not your death.

If you’re dying on the other hand, it takes great effort not to think about death.

On one view, that’s why Muslims are always reminded that the world is a temporary place we reside in before the hereafter (where we’ll have the eternal life, either in heaven or not).
