It should work both ways

Now this post kind of ties into one of my previous posts, “Should a man have to pay for every date?” piggy backing off of that, In my opinion, I feel as though guys like to be spoiled and have surprises too. It almost seems as though, especially in my generation that a guy is expected to pay for his girls hair, nails, food, etc. which is nothing wrong with it, but why all the time? Why can’t a girl say no babe, I got it. You buy what you want. Or better yet, you buy it for him. Like if he pays for your hair and nails, a girl can pay for his haircut and some shoes. Or a game for his game system. Just like when a guy sends his girl “just because flowers” on a Wednesday, I will send him a “just because lunch” on a Tuesday. I feel like if you well into your relationship, it should be 50/50, not 70/30 or 80/20. Hopefully it is not 90/10. Whenever I get into a real relationship, my bf will be as spoiled as he spoils me. No don’t think I am saying its all about the physical gifts because it’s definitely not, just a thought. That’s all.

3 words that describes me

Who am I? What makes me unique? What makes me different? I mean, I know I’m a special person to some, but does it qualify me as being “unique”? Today, I am in good spirits, so lets write about what makes me, me.

Introvert

According to Oxford Languages, an introvert is “a shy, reticent person”. I am a huge introvert. I wouldn’t say I’m necessarily shy but I prefer to stay to myself and not be bothered. I am just as content being alone. It is my most happy place, besides being with my mom. Give me a quiet, dark room, with a good movie and some snacks and yeah I’m set. Won’t see me unless I need some more snacks. I also like quiet. I think that comes from my different situations having to share my space with multiple people. I am never able to get time by myself unless I leave the house and go stay at a hotel. But who has money to be doing that often. Most of my family knows that I am a quiet person but also think I am mean and rude when I don’t make conversation and engage when they are playing a game or watching a movie. First, I have nothing to say to you at that moment and I either do not want to play the game or already seen the movie. Sorry not Sorry.

Supportive

As we all know by now, I love to help people succeed and get to the next level. Friends, family, co-workers, I do not care, I will support you in the fullest. Being able to be that resource and guide them in the right direction to their dreams. It puts a smile on my face to see them smile. I often get called their personal therapist, giving them the advice to get them to that next step, next level. I knew I should have studied psychology in college.

Honest/Real

Cool monkey

Even though I am a quiet person, and don’t really talk to too many people, when I do my answers and conversation is as honest as ever. I will tell you like it is especially if you ask for my opinion. I do not sugarcoat or hold back. I think that’s why I lost a lot of friends. So glad my best friends knows me and understand my personality because I am the captain of saying no. Like I said, I prefer to be home in my own bubble. Now don’t get me wrong, I do go out, however I can’t do it all the time especially if it is to nowhere important or fun. My social meter can only take but so much.

Should a man have to pay for every date?

Photo by Evelina Zhu on Pexels.com

I know I might get some backlash for this but in my opinion, I do not believe a man should have to pay for EVERY single date. In the beginning, yes he should be a gentleman and take care of the first few dates. However, I feel like if you are well into your relationship, the woman could pick up the tab or at least half of it. Take the pressure off of your man for once and spoil him. Now most men don’t mind paying for the tab, and sometimes get offended when their woman wants to pay, which is a great thing, but every once in a while won’t hurt especially if the bill is only a couple of dollars. I would love to take my man out on a date, let him order anything he wants, and say “no babe, I have got it this time. My treat” I know he may not like it, but it will put a smile on his face in the end because it’s the little things that counts.

Pet Peeves

Pet Peeves. According to Oxford Languages, “pet peeves is something that a particular finds annoying”. Boy do I have a lot of things that annoy me, but today I am going to tell you all about my top 3. First up. Snoring.

Snoring

I cannot stand someone who snores. When I go to sleep, I just want to lay down, in some peace and quiet, not in a loud voice sounding like a bear. I don’t know why, but it just irritates me. Makes me cringe and lay there awake staring at the ceiling or the wall. Mind you that the person is in another room and I can still hear it! That’s crazy lol. No snoring for me. Reason is because I like peace and quiet since I can’t get it during the day and if I can’t get it at night either, WOW. Just WOW!

Chewing too loud

Why do people have to chew their food so loud that someone in another country can hear it?! Oh, that is so annoying. Close your mouth! Nobody wants to see and hear how your teeth chew your food. I understand the food may be good, but I don’t want to hear the goodness. Keep that to yourself. Reason is because I find that to be very disgusting. I literally stare at the person until we make eye contact lol.  What’s the reason you want everyone to know you are eating?

Touching my things without my permission

OMG! Do not touch my things without my permission. That pisses me off to the max. Especially since I would never touch someone’s things without their permission. I feel like it would be reciprocated, but I guess not. Reason this irritates me so much is because, once before my old laptop was being used without me knowing and when I got home from work, it was broken and nobody knew what happened or how. Really?! Nobody knows what happened. Before I left, it was in great standing, now the keys are missing, and the screen is half black. SMH. Don’t touch my things. Simple.

What am I afraid of?

Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels.com

This is one of those questions where you can think of it on a more deep level or right on the surface level. For me, most of my fears do not come from the physical level, but from something deeper. Comment below if you can relate to any of these or what your fears are

I’m going to start with a surface level fear which is Reptiles. Any reptile for that matter, especially lizards. I just think they are extremely slimy looking, and just ugh gives me the creeps. Another would be a snake. I’ve never had a close encounter with a snake, however, if I did, I would just give up lol. No way im fighting my way out.

Something else I am afraid of is Cats. Yeah, I know this may sound silly, but I truly am afraid of cats. It’s like you never know when and how to approach them, and they attack for any reason. They scratch you for whatever reason, they knock stuff off the table for whatever reason, they are just rude. People say maybe I’ve had some bad experiences with cats and they all aren’t like that but until I see that as proof, I am not a cat person. (Dogs rule)

This is where things get deep. Another thing I am afraid of is not living or succeeding to my full potential. And no I don’t mean failure. I mean wasting my life. Living a mediocre life, going to the same job everyday for 10+ years, not traveling and seeing what’s out there in the world, just going about my daily routine every single day. I don’t want to be like that. When I was younger, I used to believe that you work as hard as you can and when you retire, that’s when you start to have fun. Not anymore. Life is far too short to think like that. I am now exploring what I am passionate about, which is helping people, and creating.

Places I want to visit

Now I know there is a whole virus going on in the world today, but a girl can image right? I’m not like a world traveler, but I’ve been blessed to have seen quite a few places. Below are the places I want to explore one day. Comment your favorites!

Africa

I have always wanted to go on a true African safari. To see the animals in their natural habitat, living life plus the culture there is amazing. I like learning new things, so when the movie Black Panther came out, and I saw the different tribes, I wanted to know if they were real and they are. Each one of the different tribes represents something specific to them. I found that to be so interesting and would love to see that in real life. I also have a thing for nature and beautiful landscapes since I do live in a busy city area. I feel like it is so peaceful and calming there.


Washington D.C

Now, I know what you may thinking and it is now for that reason. I want to go to Washington D.C. because of the many museums they have. As I mentioned before, I love learning new things, so museums excite me because there are so many new things to learn and explore. One place I want to see in particular is the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. I have never heard of this place until I watched Night of the museum 2 I believe. It looked so cool and huge! One day I will be there.


New York City

Oh New York. I am not gonna lie, I’ve been wanting to go to New York ever since Home Alone. It has always seem like a very big place with SO much to do. From plays, to shopping, to different monuments to explore. Especially time square. All the lights and attractions. Oh , don’t forget about the subways. I know they are not the ideal transportation and all that exciting, but for someone who isn’t from there, it is. Can’t wait to visit here


Las Vegas

Last but not least, Las Vegas. Similar to New York, all the lights and attractions have drawn my attention to explore all of what’s its about. One of my favorite movies Step Up All In, made it even more real for me. Seeing them having fun roaming the streets of Vegas was my dream for my friends and I and I cannot wait to do that with them. Plus hitting up the casino wouldn’t hurt too much would it?

What do I need to let go of?

Photo by medium photoclub on Pexels.com

There is a lot of things I need to let go of but the main thing I need to let go of is things I cannot control. I am a very controlling person of my things and how things go when it comes down to the things I love. I have to be on top of it all because I feel like if I’m not, I will lose it and I don’t want to. 

But as I got older and life goes on, I am beginning to learn that no matter how much it may pain you, there are things you cannot control. You just have to be grateful for the situation you are in and keep it moving until it gets better. For me, I see it as a motivational thing. I dislike it so much, that I have to do and be better to change it. That’s just it.

Another thing I need to let go of are sweating the small stuff. I tend to let the little things get to me and later after I calm down, I realize that it was not that big of a deal to begin with or it wasn’t my major concern. For instance, when someone gives me something as a gift, and we have a small falling out and that person wants whatever they gave me back, I get really upset, but then realize it is yes technically mine now because it was a gift but I didn’t spend my money on it so why am I making a huge fuss about it. Just give it back. Simple. 

Something else I need to let go of and is kind of a hard one is my past. Nothing bad really happened in my past, however there were a lot of mistakes made that I am still holding on to which isn’t allowing me to progress into my future. I get afraid I am going to do it again, so I either just don’t do it, or I do it half assed which isn’t fair to myself or the opportunity. I also tend to use it as an excuse to get out of doing things or why I couldn’t do something. It’s called past for a reason which is where it should stay. You live and learn and it is up to me to use that and improve my situation and now to keep making excuses for it.

6 things that makes me happy

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

So what makes me happy? It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy because I appreciate anything given to me so lets begin. 

Music 🎧🎼

When I listen to music, I feel like all my problems are gone and I am free. I am a millennial so yes I do tend to put my music louder than needed but I feel like I have to. It creates a more amazing experience. There is no particular song or genre that gets me hyped, I just turn on my Pandora radio and jam out like no one is watching. 

Movies 🎬🎞

When I tell you I LOVE watching movies. I have a lot of favorite movies but the ones I can always rewatch are any Marvel movies and Transformers movies. They will never get old for me. My family hates movie nights because we try to find a movie that no one has even and every list or genre Ive seen most of those movies. I get asked all the time why I love movies so much and honestly I do not know. I guess because they give me so much peace and puts me at ease after a long day. Plus I do not like commercials unless it is a TV show. Watching movies with commercials are so frustrating to me especially if it a new movies I’ve never seen. I want to know what happens next not wait after 30 commercials lol. I guess that’s why I do not like watching so many tv shows (unless its Spongebob) until the have all aired and I can binge watch. 

Dogs 🐶

I love doggies especially the little small ankle biters lol. It is so weird because when I was younger I was so scared of dogs but I having family members with dogs around me made it easier to overcome my fear and love dogs now. 

Food 🍕🍟🍗🍦

Haha, who doesn’t love food like come on. When I eat I start doing my happy dance especially if it is something I’ve been craving for a while. My favorites are hot wings, fruit, ice cream, pastries, salad, and fries. Lol, yes I know a lot of favorites and all different but I definitely enjoy them. 

Video games 🎮

It may sound weird to some, but yes I love video games and I’m a girl. I not a full on gamer girl, but I do not mind playing a game every now and then. That probably came from me frowning up with mostly boys around me. I like playing the good ol’ Mario Kart of course, killing zombies or weird creatures, racing games , and ill dab a little into basketball. And I cannot forget the little games we all play on our phones to pass time. 

My Mommy 👩🏽‍🦱

Oh mommy. My mother is the most sweetest, calmest, understanding person in the world. She sees the good in everybody and every situation. I wish I had some of that in me. Whenever I am in a bad mood and need some up lifting, I go right to my mother and can tell her any and everything without her judging me, plus putting a huge smile on my face in the end. I love my mommy 🙂

When I wake up in the morning, how do I want to feel?

Photo by icon0.com on Pexels.com

Me not being a morning person to begin with, I would like to feel… well rested. I 

would like to be able to wake up in the morning and have the awesome energy to get and begin my day instead of being woken up which is a really big pet peeve of mine. 

Now don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t mind being woken up if it is an emergency going on, but for others to completely disregard your sleep is mind blowing to me because I try to be the most quietest person when someone else is sleeping. I think that it is SO rude to just be a loud person or do things in a loud way when you know someone is asleep. And it almost makes it feel as though that person is probably doing it on purpose, even though they probably aren’t.

I would also like to feel more happier. Getting up in the mornings is a slow process for me to get myself together, emotions wise because most nights, I do not get the proper amount of sleep to begin with and when I get up to start my day, I still feel like and wish I had more sleep time. I wish I could just wake up , not with a whole lot of energy but, more smiles because I am definitely grateful I was able to see another day, but I want my body to feel the same. 

Lastly, I would like to feel… at ease. I sometimes feel like I am in a rush to do something or get myself together when I work from home and woke up early enough to start my job on time, but idk it feel like my brain is going at 100 miles an hour and my body is trying to catch up. But it is probably because I end to overthink a lot being the introvert that I am.   :/

I know one day I will have the “perfect” morning routine once my situation gets better, so I will keep my head up and keep it moving. 

Hope you enjoyed the read. 🙂 How would you wish to feel in the morning? Comment below!
