Remember all of those movies you see? You know, the old teen romance films where the jock gives the cheerleader his letter jacket to sport (get it? haha-ehm). Or the timid boy lends the girl of his dreams his blazer in the cold weather? Say, what ever did happened to that? The act is one of cordiality and it’s sweet. It makes the girl want to sit staring into his eyes, smelling the cologne that’s rubbed off inside and smile. I wonder why the boys don’t do this anymore.
What I witness nowadays is, most of the time the girl has to steal the jacket to get the boys attention. Yes steal it! I witnessed this often walking through the cruddy, stinky hallways of my brother’s middle school. I hate going there because every single thing I see I end up saying to myself: “Now I know we weren’t like that.”, and besides, the odor is atrocious. Anyways, the girls tease the boys by taking their jackets and wearing them all day. They smell them and keep them and in most cases, the boys get mad! Completely understandable of course, especially when the girls take them home. But they boys just don’t get it.
Now up in high-school (where the air is fresher, for the most part) the boys mostly don’t bother anyways. Or they just don’t know how to react when a cute girl standing with them says, “You know, I’m freezing. I wish I brought a jacket…” The boys just blank out, imaging the act of offering their jacket to the girl and feeling like a hero, but in reality they just stand there in an awkward silence only penetrated by their snurking up their nose. Others when in this situation just chuckle. The flirtatious opportunity going straight over their heads.
Well, you say, why don’t you acknowledge the smart and sweet souls out there who aren’t so thick and can take a hint? Well, actually I would like to acknowledge them. Very much so. I personally have encountered two of these brave men. One, my crush. Though I’m positive it’s not mutual, he was just kind enough to lend me his jacket when our school’s heat broke on a very cold day. Like I said, he’s just a nice guy, but that just makes him seem all the more knightly. The other, a close friend who was worried I was going to freeze when I was walking around in the snow without a jacket. He didn’t just lend me the jacket, he gave it to me. And while I have no feelings for him excepting that of friendship, just that small act made me blush and stop to think about him in a different light.
The moral of this post? Boys, if you want to form a bit of a trap for the girl of your dreams to slip into (that sounded kind of creepy) then you need to invest your time wisely and perk up your ears. Next time she’s cold, offer her your jacket. She’ll know your freezing for her and in that split second she’ll begin to notice you differently, even if it’s just for a second. Her heart will flutter, she’ll blush, and you have a starting point.
CAUTION: Exercise this with caution, though. If she rejects you it may be for these reasons: 1. She doesn’t know you well enough. 2. She’s trying to tough it out. In which case, insist. 3. She was hinting for someone else to assist her. If any of these scenarios play out and you get rejected, try again or find another way to approach her say… get to know her first?
That’s all. Just me trying to deploy a comeback for the chivalry when it come to young romance. It wouldn’t hurt…
Ok, I’ll catch you up in case you haven’t read my first post (it’s not necessary to have. Actually, just don’t waste your time…) However, I noted that I am currently in the process of writing a novel called Circle Patterns. I’m just working on it and I’ll see how it turns out but I was thinking that I would put some information about it on here. Like the cover blurb and possibly chapters. Updates as it come to finality and possible publishing or what not. So without further ado, I give you what at the moment would appear ont he back of the cover. Maybe.
In a new America that is being eaten inside out from the Brother
Depression or ‘frater depressio’ as the “experts” call
it, there is nothing but sadness and confusion. After America
lost all its resources and respect from other nations, it became
almost a third-world country. With the people still contrived and
living in the past, the struggle to face reality becomes a huge
issue. Everyone is obsessed with rareities; jewels, money, fresh
fruit, drugs, and pretty young girls. No one is trustworthy. No one is
safe. Faith is the thing shunned by everyone so in the public eye, it does not exist.
Amidst all the confusion, a young blind girl
moves through the world that is invisible to her. She seeks hope.
An abstract concept her world refuses to believe in, much less
And that’s just the sneak peak to wet your chops. But I’ll upload the first chapter in a few days.
P.S. This will most likely NOT be what it’s supposed to be because as my story is unfolding, it continues to change often.
These are some new photos that I’m putting up (check out my others here: https://sortofkinda.wordpress.com/mon-photographie/). They are just a collection of strange photos I’ve taken over the course of this week. Featuring: a person, my brother’s abundant Star Wars action figure collection, a game of hungry hungry hippos, a fish, and my puppy Aubrey. Enjoy.
Mouths are beautiful
The simplicity of the curves and lines
That make up a person’s character
Whispered through the soft pink lips
Creased and folded with smiles
And that’s why I fold my tips
into origami shapes
For the sake of a smile
Because those beautiful lines on the sides
Of your mouth
That you let stay even after you laugh
Prove you are immune to the ignorance
To the anti-age propaganda
Wanting you to believe that to be happy
Is not what you really want
Because you could crack the powdered smooth face of youth
That wasn’t yours in the first place
And last night I dreamed of a paper moon
Taking up the whole of the sky
Full and bright and confident
And the whole time I reached out for it
All I wanted was to stroke the light
Because they looked like the creases of a familiar face
And that made me smile
So this is my first post on this blog, but I have another. However, I am still a fledgling in the world of blogging (i only started yesterday). I would really appreciate comments to help me get moving in the right direction or comments on my photography and art when I get it up here.
I am currently writing a book, slowly but surly. I have it on the website http://www.inkpop.com/, which by the way is a really encouraging site filled with Teen lit written by teens. My book isn’t exactly up on the charts yet because I’m really far behind on writing and even further behind on updating to the site. But here I thought I could just post bits and pieces about it.
And such. So here I’ll just ramble about me and such,http://tofindunique.wordpress.com/ here, I’ll post cool things around the world. How’s that?
