@saywhatnow? This time infinity.
It drives me totally batty that something as huge as the New York Times never has captions on their videos.
"“Doing what one wants to do because one wants to do it is hard for a lot of people, but I think it’s particularly hard for women. We are, after all, the gender onto which a giant Here to Serve button has been eternally pinned.” Here to serve, but not to serve ourselves. And, by extension, here to be desired, not to pursue our own."
I can't relate to the whole leaving a marriage part of this, but the above quote really spoke to me because of a conversation I had with my boyfriend this weekend. He told me how he wish I'd initiate more and he wished I'd speak up more about what I wanted. I consider myself a very independent person who does what they want, but when it comes to relationships I just can't seem to break free of the idea of "let's do this (if it's okay with you)". I didn't realize how much I do it until he called me out on it.
And by "can" I mean "can't".
I can figure out who died in this moose video? Do you mean the moose?
"Confidence does not equal competence." <- I suffer from this delusion OFTEN.
This is such a great story though!
@yrouttasight Really? On one of those pianos they had around the city this past fall? No kidding! Thanks!
My best things about 2013 (in no particular order):
1. Taking up surfing
2. Riding my bike a ton
3. Meeting a completely awesome guy
4. Having two of my photographs hanging up on display for all to see for 6 months now at a concert venue downtown
5. Playing "My Heart Will Go On" on a piano in city hall plaza in Boston.
6. Spending so much time stargazing, hanging out at the beach, and camping with friends.
It's been an awesome year.
As someone who was LONG TERM single and happy with it and has just embarked on a new and exciting relationship: This is my favorite thing I've read all week. I'm trying to reconcile what it takes to be in a relationship with my "I can do whatever I want whenever I want" single life and remain true to who I was and who I am.
So thank you for this!
