I don't believe in goodbyes

I really don't - unless you're a big meaniehead. "See you later" is a happier idea to deal with :)

I won't say goodbye to this blog just because my course is over. I will keep updating in due time as things come up. Add me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter to keep in touch beyond the blogosphere.

Keep commenting if you wish for me to post about things you'd like to hear! :)

In the meantime, in the between time (in the words of Flow 93.5's Spex), hope you guys have a wonderful and very happy Christmas!

Through the Rain

You know that this person is worth your time when you guys get through the storm of difficulties and there still an overwhelming desire to still be with this person. Seeing so much of someone's great sides and then bad sides is not always an easy task nor is accepting all of it an easy one as well.

There are things that drive us crazy, and things that make us hurt and really wonder if it's worth it, sticking through everything. If it's the right one ... everything will be worth your while.

Sometimes the fundamental difference between things working out and not working out is about choice ... you decide what is worthy.

Happiness and love are just a choice away.

What does that word mean anyway? It's just a word that describes the unfathomable concept of time that never ends. And yet, we say it for the sake of expressing our affinity for something or someone; we even use it to express how long we want something to last or not last.

I've always sat on the fence for this one. I want to be spontaneous but at the same time, I want to know what's ahead of me and plan accordingly. I want to know that this man is going to be there for me forever and fairytales spoil us in the way that we think that that's the way it's always going to be. I like hearing promises of forever.

At the same time though, we don't know what forever's like and it is virtually impossible to promise "ever after". Despite getting butterflies hearing the word forever, I am more critical of the word now.

Maybe promises should be made for today, or tomorrow, or the next little while. Or maybe promises shouldn't be made at all, but rather we should just live in the moment not worrying about the future. Getting through each day as it comes is sometimes good enough for now.

Phone Obsession

Have you ever found yourself sitting by the phone waiting in anticipation for him or her to call? Maybe it's this cute guy you met randomly who asked for your number. Or maybe it's your girlfriend who calls almost everyday and today it seems out of rhythm. Maybe it's your ex who you long to hear from. Whoever it is, stop doing it.

I, myself, am still guilty of staring at my phone waiting for it to vibrate or some red light to go off. I figure it's time to find a new attachment. There's no use sitting by the phone, if it rings, it rings. If it doesn't, we move on or we determine the moves.

Clubbing 101 (for the gentlemen)

This is just my opinion and not any direct attack on your methods at a club.

Guys, clothing-wise I think it's fairly easy for you to look good. Simple stylish jeans with an ironed dress shirt, shaved face and some cologne will usually do the trick.

Now to get that girl's attention that you've been eyeing, please DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT just come up behind her when she's not looking and start bumpin' and grindin'. This will usually result in her running away and signalling for a cockblock from her friends. (Exceptions apply when the girl is absolutely drunk out of her mind and hormones are raging.)

I really can't stress the above point enough...

If a girl does not show any interest, please don't follow her and do the same thing as you were doing beforehand.

(Toronto-Based show Keys to the VIP showcases guys whose ultimate goal is to get a number - if the girl doesn't show any interest in you, please leave her alone and move on.)

Having a wingman usually makes the situation less awkward and helps you not look creepy.

If you really hit it off with her, be a gentleman and offer her a drink.

Any other suggestions?
