I have never dreamt of living a big house per say.. a two-story, victorian home, or a mansion. Being in the comfort of a small warm place was always at heart for me — more or less, an apartment, condominium, studio apartment, or a loft.
I want to live in solitude. With my own decor in my house. I can’t imagine having a gigantic house (unless I make my legacy go on) because of all the decorating, management, and cleaning you’d have to maintain. It wasn’t for me. One thing’s for sure though, I’ve always wanted a fireplace. I always have to relate topics like these to games, but when I was playing Animal Crossing: Wild World back in 2005 when I first got it, I would never expand the house after the second mortgage payment. I liked the simplicity of a small home.
Having the fireplace furniture piece was always a must. Hardwood floors, a couch, a tv, a bed, the bare minimum.
When I was in middle school, all I could remember were the bus rides heading to school. Yes, I took the school bus to school and usually, I always looked forward to it. It was because, that was when the Nintendo DS was at it’s debut and prime, and a group of friends and I had Mario Kart to play while riding the 45 minute bus ride to school.
If I could remember correctly, it was 7 of us. We would always bring our DS’s on the bus in the morning and play matches with each other and most of the time, it was all yelling in the bus because, if you’ve played Mario Kart before, you know how frustrating it is to be hit with a blue shell, red shell, your own green shell, and so on. We used to set up matches and bet candy (sometimes) to award whoever won first place.
I miss that. And the bus rides home were the equivalent. After a tedious long day of learning and remembering stuff, we’d just whip out our DS’s, turn on the multi-player link that was so amazing back then because: remembering link cables? And play our DS’s. Those were good times, I wish I still had that little group to play multi-player games with.
Growing up I’ve always seen myself living in a loft; single bedroom with a balcony. Brick wall with an industrial touch. It would probably be in the tallest building overlooking a cityscape. It would be walking distance to a cafe where I could get a drink before leaving to work.
But I’m still stuck in California, in a 4-bedroom home, in a cul-de-sac.
It would great to be in a relationship again, but I’m not going to be looking. I want one to naturally come to me. Like my first true girlfriend; we bonded over a game. A game, at a party, that involved alcohol and weed. We wanted nothing to do with it so we went into the hosts’ room and had our own little party there. I find that amazing actually.
How small talk became big talk, how hugs became kisses, and how holding hands and walking became sex. It was great. But I don’t want to push myself into wanting to be in a relationship with the next person I see who I think is overly attractive. I want time to do it’s work and not force one upon myself because I solely want one. I’ve only been in 3 relationships so far, and the most memorable one was my first because it happened at the spur of the moment and interest grew at a range of 3 months. Then it became official.
Will I ever experience that again? Who knows.
One movie I can never ever get bored of is Juno. I fell in love with the movie when I first saw it. Mainly because of Ellen Paige. But Juno is the only movie I have in my phone’s memory and I always find myself watching it when I don’t have anything else to do.
Maybe it’s because I’m in love with Ellen Paige’s character’s persona; Juno is like a tomboy but knows how to speak in men’s code, I guess. And Paulie being the more vulnerable in the movie just fits Michael Cera’s whole acting career, he’s so soft spoken and really is awkward in almost every movie (especially Scott Pilgrim) I’ve seen. Whoever casted Ellen and Michael as those two characters, is a genius.
And its all about romance, struggles, school, but with a cynical twist. I am forever in love with that movie. Its up there on my favourite movies list. I actually don’t think I do have a favourite movie.
