once in a lifetime?

i wonder why they call it “once in a lifetime”? i was talking to a friend of mine and she said that once in a lifetime is a moment or event that only gives you one opportunity to take advantage of it or else you will never get it again… pretty self-explanatory… but whose to say once in a lifetime cant happen a second time? but not the same kind of opportunity… a new opportunity… maybe making it a new “once in a lifetime”…

i was always a firm believer that we have to take advantage of what is infront of us because once its gone its gone and it was your responsibility to hold on tight and not lose it… i never look back at the things i lost or opportunities i missed because theyre behind me now and i cant do anything to get them back… im not sad i missed opportunities… i dont regret losing once in a lifetime things… i am who i am today because of my decisions and i have to admit that no matter what ive been thru im proud of myself, which is something i couldnt tell myself before…

there are some things, however, that i constitute as “once in a lifetime” that i still hold dearly… things i wish i hadnt missed or lost… and no offense to the phrase but “once in a lifetime” to me doesnt mean a one time opportunity when youre willing to do something to make it “worth” once in a lifetime again…

Procrastination at it finest!

I have a lot of things to do today… But since i dont feel like doing it im doing everything else to avoid it hahaha so i figured i would say hi!

Things have been moving unbelievably fast! This time last year i thought that this day would never come! And now its here! FINALLY graduating from college! I cant believe it! After all the slackin off and stupid counselors tellin me what i can and cant do i finally pushed through and finished! ( screw you mrs. Caldwell! I did it in less time than u thought possible!) haha

AND i moving! New state, new beginnings, new bed… New everything haha im completely determined to succeed in this industry… But im takin it one day at a time! Only thing im sad about is not being able to see my roomies/ siblings every day… First time in 25 years i wont be living with them… Its gonna be tough…

Everything else is still up in the air… I figure ill set it aside and focus on everything else and wen the time comes itll figure itself out… So ill just keep smiling till then… No matter how irritating some people think my smile is haha

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people that have been more than amazing people in my life… Most of whome dont follow me or dnt have tmblrs but hey they dont need to read this to know i appreciate them haha but they have really been the main reason for my success… Always keeping me on track, always being there for my worst days, making sure i have someone to talk to anytime i need them… I am truly blessed to have met and known you guys! And as for my number one reason for success? Well that would be my biggest fans… My family… Wouldnt, couldnt, and won’t be anything without them… My greatest accomplishments in life from when i was born till i die is all for them…

On that note! I think ill try to figure out what else to do to avoid all my chores… Till next time!

The Last…

Boy- I love you

Girl- hey how many was there before me?

Boy- what do you mean?

Girl- how many girls did you love before me?

Boy- love? … 5… I loved 5 women before you

Girl- what were their names?

Boy- who, what, when, where, why……

Girl- can you tell me about them?

Boy-

WHO I loved was a girl from college, I wasn’t exactly close with her but with some superficial facts and some interactions during the semester, u know like most guys fantasizing about girls they barely even know… I filled in the blanks like a fairy tale author… and who she became in my head was probably more than the reality… she was a 3rd year and I was an infatuated freshman but the times we got to spend together outside of class really allowed me to see she had a good heart and a bright spirit… the only problem was… So did every other guy… and even tho she turned me down nicely I swear there were times where I thought the qliche sorority girl felt something for the typical awkward freshman….

WHAT I loved was an old friend but she was much more than JUST a friend… we met early in college and kept in touch after… we saw each other grow… and change… and thru several relationships… I saw different bf come and go, she was also there for every gf and every breakup of mine… personality, humor, taste, it was all there… her and I were ALMOST perfect… only thing that wasn’t perfect was our timing… we were never single at the same time and what we loved about each other was never enough to leave who we were with… this was something we eventually had to face and accept… leave behind what we had…

WHEN I loved was my first gf in high school… it’s a bit unfair coz she embodies both love and youth… the feeling of young love is unique and impossible to replace or replicate… coz we can only be that age once… hs was a time of innocence, discovery and adventure… we shared these three elements in things like our first kiss, late night sneaking out, movies… all of which now have become a nostalgic love preserved in a time that neither of us can touch… even tho we were just kids there was no doubt in my mind…. We were in love…

WHERE I loved was a girl I met in LA… I never intended to stay there that long… it was just a 6 month internship but it all changed when I met her… soon a year had passed, then another year after that… I couldn’t leave the city, I couldn’t leave her… maybe it was my desire to be on my own but she helped me accomplish it over there with a relationship reflective of the city we were in… a new energy, new experience that really pushed me to mature more than anyone or anywhere else… when people ask what city I love the most… I say LA… the city where I loved the most…

WHY I loved was a close friend of mine that had passed away… she told me after she after she was diagnosed that death was not the thing that saddened her the most… but the fact that she had never felt that she had fallen in love.. she would never have those emotions… good and bad… of being hurt and of being held… after she passed those words stuck with me the most… teaching me to see that one of the greatest gifts we have of being alive is the ability to give, receive and even lose love… there are so many like her… whos lives end before having any of those experiences… wat a waste if we don’t strive to love in our lives… she made me understand why… why waste this life not loving…

Girl- I understand now…

Boy- you are the 6th

Girl- so which one am I then?

Boy- you are none of them… because u are ALL of them…

YOU are WHO I love… the girl on the pedestal… the fantasy… the make believe things that are actually true…

YOU are WHAT I love… the depth… the inside jokes… the BEST friend…

YOU are WHEN I love… a new history is being started with you… we are the young lovers our older selves will one day reminisce about…

YOU are WHERE I love… because I would go ANYWHERE… just to be with you…

YOU are WHY I love… because before you I didn’t truly understand what I was looking for… now that we found each other you’ve given my past, present and future meaning…

YOU ARE THE 6TH… YOU ARE THE LAST….

Seriously though, if you want to be my friend all you have to do is message me saying “Hi we’re friends now ok” and I’ll just be like “ok, hi friend” and BAM our friendship has been made.

Simple hahaha

“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World
