I haven’t really been maintaining or using this space for my
writing ramblings, obviously. Will this post signify a resurgence in my blog productivity and lead to more regular posts and insights from UD!? I hope so, but let’s be real, probably not. As much as I love spewing out word vomit out into the empty void of the interwebz, time doesn’t always cooperate with me and things like the blog tend to get neglected as soon as the school year starts. I don’t know why I waited until the end of Summer to decide I wanted to try and start blogging again. That was poor judgement on my part. Here’s to hoping though, right?
So, it’s been what? Two years since I’ve posted? Whaaaaaaaat!? That’s just craaaazy!
So, what have I been up to the last two years!? So much to tell, but let’s use this post to focus in on one particular yet pretty significant thing. Probably one of the biggest life change that has happened since I’ve posted is I am now…wait for it…
in a relationship. Two years and still goin.
It’s weird, but kind of cool. I wasn’t really looking for a relationship and had pretty much convinced myself that I didn’t really want to invest myself in anyone anymore considering the slew of bad dating experiences and terribly awkward hookup encounters I had been having over the years. I had pretty much accepted that it just wasn’t in the cards to find someone who could both understand and appreciate me for more than just a hot bod and quick release in this square state that I live in. I had made peace with it.
And then it happened. We met, we nerded out about video games and stuff, we started flirting. And now here we are, two years later, still together and living together with a room mate who happens to be his brother. Like I said, it’s weird.
It’s also super cool, because I genuinely feel like I am dating my best friend and have found someone I am 100% comfortable with and can completely be myself (quirks and all) without holding anything back. I actually like hanging out with him, and we laugh a lot together.
It’s been challenging at times sure, I mean we both didn’t quite know how to handle it when we felt feelings; something we both hadn’t felt in a really long time. Emotions, blech, amirite? We weren’t quite prepared to deal with a super serious relationship; we’re like the least serious people you could ever meet.
Overall, the challenges are nothin compared to the good times we’ve had and what we’ve been able to overcome. I’m glad I ultimately got on the tracks rather than jump the hell off of them despite how my knee-jerk reactions were screeching at me; it’s been one hell of a ride. He also turned out to be one hell of a guy. He puts up with a lot to be with me, I mean a lot.
And he sometimes does the sweetest things to show me just how much he cares.
And hey this guys gets me, I mean he really gets me, which is pretty impressive. Not many do nor have been able to.
We get eachother to the point we are able to point out things we and/or others don’t even notice about ourselves or more accurately things we don’t want to admit about ourselves. The best part is, we keep each other in check. We make each other better people.
The best part? In the past, it was always challenging dating anyone that was a non-gamer, because they just didn’t get it nor were they thrilled with the idea that I would be spending most of my free time gaming and not paying attention to them. When you’re dating a fellow hardcore gamer, it becomes a non-issue.
So, yeah, there’s this guy. He’s pretty cool, and I’m pretty smitten. We’ve been together for two years now and I look forward to what’s to come. Even the moments where we will inevitably drive each other crazy from time to time; what relationship doesn’t come with these learning moments.
So, yeah, I’ve been a little distracted and haven’t been keeping up with the blog, but now you know a pretty significant piece of what has been going on in my life for the past couple of years.
Question of the day remains: Will I be able to provide more glimpses in my time away and keep up with this bloggy-blog? Will I be able to continue to post nonsensical yet whimsical ramblings into the void? I hope so.
