Re-watching shows

I have come to find that I get into tv series way to much. To the point where when I finish the entire series I may watch it again just because I know I like it. So far it’s happened with the shows Greek, How I Met Your Mother, and I’m pretty sure there are a few more that I just can’t remember now. Oh, I just thought of another, DDD (Drop Dead Diva). My point is though, that I re-watch shows even when I already know exactly what’s going to happen!!
I think it may have to do with the fact that it is familiar and I know that it will bring me guaranteed entertainment. I know that I won’t risk 30 minutes of my life on some crappy tv episode all because I was reassured by a friend that it “gets better as it goes along”. I guess I like knowing what I’m getting into when I sit down to watch something on tv. I tend to get irritated when I waste my time on something so boring, just because I was trying to give whatever it was, a chance.
Another reason why I probably re-watch tv series is because I become attached and fond of all of the characters in the show. Or sometimes the series’s ends to soon or in such a bad way that I crave to re-watch it in its prime, and possibly stop right before it ends badly. I’ve never actually done that though, because I can’t stand to leave it unfinished even though I have already seen those episodes. But then they’re not in order of how I recently watched them I think to myself. So I have to re-watch them as well.
Even though I may seem insane for re-watching entire series of shows, I have reasons for why I re-watch all of these particular series. For ‘Greek’, it was to watch my favorite characters fall in and out of love time and again, while other love triangles and couples were being formed around them (plus the added drama of breakups and random hookups). When it came to ‘Drop Dead Diva’, it was Jane who brought me back for seconds, to watch her little effervescent personality in her new plus sized body, opposed to her old super model physique. The way Jane handles cases (she’s a lawyer :p) and life around her just draws you in. At last, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ made me fall in love with the tight nit group of friends, and Barney’s random acts of pick up artistry that were eloquently planned and plotted inside his play book.

So a question for you all….are any of you addicted to re-watching some of your favorite shows? :p

Monogamy

All of my thoughts and points I make in this post are not to judge those of you are into/ ok with these types of relationships. If you’ve cheated in the past or have cheated in the present, I don’t want you to take this as a jab at the way you lived and choose to live your life. This post is just me explaining my point of view on the subject of monogamy and why I prefer it.

I don’t know why, but I’ve never liked the thought of dating many people, and then choosing my favorite. I’m not saying that having a selection of various guys to choose from and kiss, before making my decision, doesn’t sound nice. What doesn’t appeal to me though, is that while I would get to kiss whomever I want, they would also kiss who ever they wanted as well. Naturally, I am also just not a person who could kiss multiple people during the same week, month, or whatever time period it may be, with a clear conscience.  Also, you may get into a relationship with someone while they still feel something for someone they were just casually dating. I condone chatting around, and flirting around with multiple people as a form of ‘dating’, but sleeping around and kissing multiple people is just not something I agree with. In addition to my points above, is that having multiple romantic interests is germ city if you decide to go kiss and sleep with all of them. Kissing many people could give you: mono, aids (can be passed through cuts in the mouth), sicknesses/ colds, and other stuff I cant remember at this moment. Sleeping around could give you: one word…. everything.. Now, I’m not going to tell anyone else not to participate in the thicker (hard to get out of sticky situations pertaining to feelings) form of dating.

I watched this show one time ,where this girl was dating this man for a few weeks. During those weeks, she had naturally assumed that they were ‘going steady’.They had gone out on dinner dates, shared time at her place, shared mutual satisfaction at her place (sex), along with a couple other things. Come to find out, she discovers either through meeting another woman, or seeing another message from a woman that he was dating, that there was another woman, in addition to her. Shortly after her discovery, she confronts him. He tells her that he’s dating multiple woman, other than the one other woman, and her. All I could think was “that douche……“. I know that they hadn’t officially declared the status of their relationship, but they had been dating for 1-6 months (I’m not sure the exact length). Just think about it this way though…. teenagers now make sure they clarify with someone who asks them to be their boyfriend or girlfriend, if they mean ‘exclusively’. 

Now onto Monogamy in official relationships!!! 😀 …..i. e. cheating, open relationships, and the whole shebang!

For the rest of my life, I will never personally get into an open relationship, or stay with someone who serially cheats on me (maybe I wont even give them a second chance after just once..). When I think about being in a relationship and in love, I see myself only desiring my partner, and wanting to give only them my love. I feel that if love is given out to every person you are in contact with, equally, you will never really find a true love. If a kid made his mom a special picture and then as a way of showing her gratitude, she hugged him. Then proceeded to hug all of her other children directly after she hugged her little boy. He wouldn’t see that as a way she appreciated his gift, he would think it was as if there was never even a gift he had given. That’s the way I feel like it would be for someone to tell their partner that they truly love them (because they have that fictitious ‘gift’ they gave, which in this case is their unique love). Then go on to tell their partner they want to share the love and happiness they feel towards their partner to a ton of other people too. There is only so much love we can give, until all of  the recipients start to feel gypped. Our love running thin, is close in contrast to a mother with many, many children. She wont have much time to give to each one what they desire, because she needs to give that love to the rest of her children she loves.

Onto cheating….. why do people do it? Just why…..?!?! The main causes of cheating come from a deficit in the relationship, in compatibility (one of them wants an open relationship, so forcefully creates the situation for them self), or thrill of having many people desiring them, etc. It’s quite a selfish act…. it’s self indulgent, lack of thought for your partners feelings, and using another person to fill whatever void you may have. If you cheat because of a deficit in your relationship, don’t go searching for total fulfillment in two parts (two different women, or men). Respect your partner and end your relationship. Then, find complete fulfillment, with just one partner. Now, if you cheat conscientiously and then tell your partner you’re sorry and want another chance, you should keep in mind that if you truly wanted to keep your partner in the first place, you wouldn’t have done anything to mess with your relationship.

Now that you have fully read this, I would like to remind you of this, still no judging! :p. Just thought I’d share my perspective. I watched a video today that touched on this topic a bit, so it made me think to write a post of my own about it.

Adiós fellow bloggers! 🙂

A true love story

When you look at my title for this post you may think you’re going to hear about a story of two humans growing closer and closer together. Well that is not what this is about…. This is about dogs, and all other pets alike that live solely to be around whenever you need a fluffy, silent, listening ear.
I used to have a dog. He was a beautiful little dog, and I will never forget all the memories I had with him. I remember when he would hear the garage door opening and come running to the door to great my family and I; when he would get all flustered when we would pretend we were dogs too, and started to playfully growl at him; his little soulful whine when he heard us mimic his little voice he would make whenever he would get sad; the way he would follow us around the house to find out what activity was up next; his soft fur; vibrant personality; his ability to keep his tail wagging through anything, giving me inspiration to try and be as optimistic as he was all the time.
I saw a picture online just a few minutes ago, that said: “he may just be a part of your world, but you are his entire world”. It had the cutest picture of this gorgeous golden retriever looking as adorable as ever :). When I think about that picture though, it makes me sad to think that some people may not realize how much love their pet truly has for them. Those small black eyes shining back at you are a sign that all that little guy has in his heat for you is pure love. If you think back to any time you were sad, can you remember how those ears were the only ones you could go to, knowing they wouldn’t judge you for anything you did? All they know how to do is look cute and make you feel better, no judgement, no extra grief, just love.
I know this is probably a very random post, but that picture made me feel the need to write something about my doggy that passed away a few months ago. Because I may not say this enough, but I sure miss the little guy, I just don’t always say it out loud <3.

To my little dog in heaven, you will always be loved…. :,) .
