Thanks to my boyfriend, I’ve been lucky to have some awesome dates planned for me. Some of the best dates have been the spontaneous ones that require us to do something that we normally wouldn’t do (see a concert, a random day trip somewhere, a surprise dinner, etc). So a date I would love to go on? Probably something unique that I haven’t done before.

Side note** Clearly I’m not keeping up with the 30-day challenge since it’s been spread over almost 2 months now and I’m not even halfway through. Oh well

Must. Travel. More.

I want to travel more. I want to travel with friends. I want to have these memories because the reality is, everyone’s getting busier and it’s hard to even meet up with a friend for a cup of coffee. I know this is just the way life is but why!?

One of my biggest regrets are always the trips I end up turning down, which is dumb because then I always regret it.

A few years ago, my friends took a trip to NYC, Chicago (and somewhere else). I couldn’t go because I was afraid to ask for 2 weeks off. Looking back, I wish I went with them. Another time, I had a trip to Cancun all planned out and for fear of making a bad impression (I was new at the job), I had to cancel that too. There went $700 I couldn’t get refunded –the worst kind of wasted money. The company shut down a few months later which made me more annoyed that I should have just taken the trip. Two years ago, my mom wanted a mother-daughter trip together. She didn’t care where. I complained about how I needed to focus my time on finding a job. In the 7 months I was searching, I could have (and should have) taken a trip with her. In fact, I probably could have taken three trips. Anyway, you get the point.

There’s always going to be a valid reason—don’t have the money or time—but let’s look at the bigger picture. Let’s find the time and sacrifice some money (it’ll be money well spent anyway). You can always “save” up later or refrain from going out to eat/drink for a few weeks since that’ll add up to the same amount anyway.

So, that being said, it’s time to plan the next trip. Where should I go and who will go with me?

P.S.

Liz (because I know eventually you will see this), let’s make that Thailand trip a reality.

A few years ago, I would have ranted and spoke my mind about how I felt. There’s so much I wanted to say but none of that matters anymore. I’ve grown up a lot and you were just a part of those growing pains so thanks. That’s all.

My current relationship is nothing short of amazing. It just works. I could go on and on and on about what makes it so great (and I know the boyfriend is reading this and would like to see that haha) but I wouldn’t really know where to begin. Simply put, to me, my current relationship is what I envision the ideal relationship to look like. Sometimes it seems like it’s too good to be true and that’s when I realize I’m extremely lucky to have found it and I plan to cherish it for a long, long, long time. But what means more to me is that this relationship doesn’t trump the other relationships I have with my friends and family. In fact, this relationship complements those well and doesn’t take away from those. I don’t know how to explain it but I’m really happy.

Personally I don’t do either and even if I did, I’d probably do it for the peer pressure. Drugs have always been a big no to me. Alcohol, I don’t drink because everyone knows I have the worst tolerance known to man–plus I don’t get a good buzz, I go straight into nausea. I will admit though, if I could handle my liquor, I’d probably drink more because of the social pressure to fit in because apparently you can’t really meet new people without having alcohol involved somehow. I substitute it with food because chances are, when there’s alcohol, there’s always food.

9. Your Last Kiss

Last night after dinner before parting ways to go home. The boyfriend had joined me in a dinner feast at Layang Layang with some of my cousins who came up to visit from Socal. Food was yum, company was great, and it was always nice to see the boyfriend become part of my family–especially when my uncle and aunts are more interested in talking to him than me haha.
