Yay! These things...(Oh and when I say relationship, I mean the kind of relationship where a guy says "I like you" and the girl says "I like you too" or vice versa.) Soooooooo relationships. The big R word. Some people hate this word. Some people get a bad taste in their stomachs when they here it. Some people love the fact that they are in one with someone else and seem to just smear it in your face with their lovey doveyness. Regardless of all these things, relationships are out there smacking you in the face, and it seems to get worse with age.

Now some people might blame our culture and say *puts on wide rimmed glasses and does hipster impression* "Society tells us that we must grow up and get married and have kids and conform. I don't want to conform, I just want to be a leaf carried by the winds of unconventionality and just be with someone when I please." Well person who I would probably rather not associate myself with, I don't think that's necessarily true. While sure there are some people who don't want to find one stable relationship with someone for the rest of their lives, there are a bunch more who would much rather be with a single companion they can depend on. I don't think it has all to do with society, I think it has to do with something deeper in mostly everyone. That sense of security, that ability to know that you have someone that will always be there for you and that you can tell anything to.

Right now I'm at a strange time in my life where I really want to have a relationship with someone yet at the same time I'm super happy that I'm single. I can see benefits on both hands. If I was in a relationship then I would get to have that person that I can be close to and talk to about things that were going on in my life and be close to. Now sure I have my best friend but anyone who has ever been in fairly good relationship can tell you that it's just different. Being Single on the other hand I can explore who I am even further before I meet that girl and do WHATEVER I want to do. I can explore, I can go off and just be by myself for a while, and do whatever i want without feeling as though I was abandoning her to do my thing.

Anywhooo, that's just what I've been thinking about.

I have many friends with wide brimmed glasses and I like them.

Am I the only person who hates hanging out with couples, for long periods of time.

Staying Put

So lately I've been wondering what causes a person to stay put where they are?

What I mean by that is, what causes a person to stay at the place they are living and keeps them from just up and leaving to go and explore the great unknown? I guess there are more than one reason for any person. But I mean what makes people stay where they are for the majority of the people? Is it a loss of comfort, knowing that if you leave you would be leaving what you know? Is it a fear of disappointing loved ones, such as family or close friends? Is it a fear that you might struggle financially? Is it all, some, or none of these things? Maybe it's something else. Who knows? I know it's not impossible, people have done it. But what keeps us, who know we would never leave, from leaving? Heck, what made the people who did leave, leave?

I think this might be an important question to ask ourselves, especially if we ever got to a place in our lives where we felt like things were empty. We can look around us and say "Hey something in my life is keeping me here." or "You know what, there is nothing keeping me here at all." There have been times where I've looked out the window of my car and thought "What's keeping me here? Why don't I just leave and see if I can find adventure somewhere? Or find a place in the woods where I can be alone for a while and just spend time with God?" Then I think "Ya know, I have people all around me that I love and that love me. I'm not doin too bad at all. And one of the greatest challenges in life is having a relationship with God in a world where it's not all that accepted. Heck, if I can do that here, then I've accomplished something."

I dunno, maybe it's not all that important of a question to ask. But try it anyways. Maybe you'll realize something about your surroundings that you hadn't before.

That's just what I've been wondering.

For some reason "Put" is a weird word to me. Look at the way it's spelled and the way it sounds, it's just too awkward for me.

My first day

Sooooo it's been a while since I've blogged. I tried keeping up with the project "One Remarkable Year" but I utterly failed. So now I am going to blog about just what my title says. It's going to be about my journeys in life and about things I wonder about and think about. Such as my relationships with people and God and the things that go on around me in the world. I have a strange mind (I'll be the first to admit it, but not the only person to tell you) so this will hopefully allow me to bring everything together into something people will understand...or at least get the just of...or at least realize I can type letters. Anywho, thank you to all that read this, I hope you can enjoy it or at least take pitty on the rest of my body for carrying my brain.
