A Series of unfortunate events

This post is a week late and its kind of referring to last weekend, I just didn't have time to write the post, with all sorts of things going on. @.@ Let me give you a quick catch up, I started Chinese classes almost 4 weeks ago,

Its something I have been planning to do for almost 2 years and a half on and off, the closest I ever got to Chinese classes before this was Rosetta Stone, I have to say despite the benefits of having a real teacher, not a computer or my boyfriend, I have to say Rosetta Stones pace is probably more suited to my pace.

So far what I have learnt is very basic, but you have to start from the bottom, to get to the top. Anyway everything was going oh so smoothly until the day after our "Commitment Anniversary" Michael gave me a Mylo and Friends duck and new slippers, He abandoned the paper theme, but i went all out I gave him eddible money, a bookmark, and a love letter and chocolate money, 

Michael cooked me a big meal on the night

Sea food chowder soup for the starter

Mash salmon and fried parsnips for the main course

Banofee pie for the dessert.

It was all yummy! We had a very nice night and felt very romantic we lit candles and drank sparkling rose wine. 

But the next day it might as well not of happened, I went up to my house to find out, my sister's boyfriend just broke up with her, and she was seriously heartbroken, 

Then I found out that my brother had gone and broken his arm, not from some macho sport like rugby or  football, but from doing a backwards running race with his friends @.@ boys are crazy!!!

What a coincidence!

Next Sunday will be me and Michael's commitment anniversary. I guess it sounds weird but I don't know what else to call it. But anyway we have chosen a theme for our gifts to each other, I know how organised are we. We chose "Paper" which is kind of a coincidence since I have just recconnected with my old love of snail mail and penpalling.

Actually I have been having a number of coincidences lately. On Wednesday, I met my friend Guo Zhi Bai in Dublin city centre and I hardly ever get to see him because he is so busy with his life and his job and his studies and his badminton and everything else, you name it, he's probably busy with it. So we finally arranged to meet up on Wednesday and we headed to Super Mac's had a nice chat then off we went to the cinema.

We bought our tickets to see "Crazy Stupid love" When I was in the bathroom I checked my phone. My former classmate had text me and thrust me, he had been keeping quiet for the last 6 weeks, I had no idea where he was or what he was doing. He's another one of the busy sorts.

He text me to say "what a coincidence, I saw you with that basketball boy" him and Guo Zhi Bai don't get a long. Naturally I was shocked and was thinking how did he see me, but I didn't see him, My eyesight isn't that bad... right. I tried calling him no answer so I left it.

But the other weird thing at the cinema is we bought Diet 7UP in Spar rather than in the cinema to save money, I know were stingy students.

When I sat down I put my Diet 7Up in the drink holder beside me the lights went off and by accident i hit my bottle, I heard it land on the floor, I used my phone as a torch light to try and find it, because there's no way it could have gone far, but no luck.

So after the movie when the lights came on me and Guo Zhi Bai searched again and still couldn't find it. It was weird maybe the 7UP fairies stole it. Or maybe this was a punishment inflicted by the cinema owners for being stingy.

A Secret to share

Sorry for my lack of blogging these days, I just haven't had the time, I found a new obsession at the moment thats interpals. I have become crazy about finding new snail mail pals. I know its probably not necessarily a good thing, because I am keeping it from my boyfriend, I don't really know why I don't want to share it with him. Usually I like to share everything with him. 

I guess its just because its just a privacy thing, Perhaps I have gone mad on letters this month because it's a distraction, just a temporary distraction. I can't really explain why I wanted to start pen-palling and snail mail again I think its because I feel I have an escalating amount of secrets that I am holding in that I find very difficult to say aloud. 

For example things to do with my boyfriends immigration troubles my mom is more than pass remarkable about this she always has some comment to make about him. To be honest shes probably right in most of what shes saying but I don't like to hear it.  I just find it easier to talk about when I write it down. 

Another thing that encouraged me in a way to start pen-palling is a surprising source The Vampire Diaries, I know what you're thinking how does this have anything to do with pen-palling, well it's not so much the pen-palling but more the secret keeping, Elena the non vampire fell in love with a vampire and had to keep it from everyone she loves. It made me think I need someone to open up to and talk to freely. 

Someone who can judge from a far. I like being able to share secrets but also retain some privacy. Is it weird? Anyway whether its weird or not its what I've decided to and have started doing. I really like the feeling of checking the mail and seeing if anything has arrived I just find it so exciting. I really love the anticipation, sometimes it makes me feel like christmas. 

I have done pen-palling before and quit but hopefully this time I won't.
