Day 24- What attracts you (in love)?

In my mind there’s different kinds of attraction when it comes to love;

  1. Purely superficial, phsycial attraction.
  2. Emotional attraction.
  3. A combination of the two.

 

The first one is often (to me) a very short termed attraction, it doesn’t always last. One example immediatley comes to mind;

It was a couple of summers ago I was out and about bar-hopping when I saw this guy. It was mindblowing. Today I can’t for the life of me remember exactly what he looked like but to the ca. 19-year old me he was basically a God. I remember the feeling I experienced when we locked eyes; it was this pure, take-your-breath-away moment, and to that day I had never experienced something so strong. He had brown eyes, something I’ve always had a soft spot for and he just oozed masculinity and, it’s so hard to describe that feeling of your mind going comepletely blank. In a way I remember feeling scared, because I knew that whatever he asked of me; I wouldn’t be able to say no.
But, it faded, it’s amazing that something that literally blew my mind in one second just evaporated the next. Superficial, not even meaningful but an experience that I’ll never forget I had.

The second one is something that usually  brews over time. You can’t be emotionally attracted, in my opinion, to someone you’ve just met. You have to get to know the person for real and just connect in a way.
I’ve experienced connection with someone immediatly, but also a connection that grew over time.

The last one is the most important one, it’s what me and The Man have. When we first met it wasn’t one of those take-my-breath-away moments instantly but something drew me to him. I’m not sure if it was something in his eyes, or his smile but something made me go talk to him. Over time we’ve realized how similar and at the same time different we are. I’ve never experienced such an intimate attraction/connection that we have, it’s something that has come over time. It’s an attraction on so many levels that I can’t even begin to describe it…and even if 21 year old me didn’t realize it back then, present me knows that he is the love of my life.

Day 23 -If You Won the Lottery…

Oh…what wouldn’t I do if I won the lottery?

  • First off I would buy my Dream House. That’s something that I’m currently dreaming of so that’s definitley a first.
  • Travel. Don’t care where, I would just pack my bags, grab The Man and leave somewhere far away from here. Preferebly somewhere warm.
  • I would get my friends and family gifts or perhaps splurge on a weekend away for a selected friends and/or family. Just enjoy eachother and have some time together and don’t have to worry about what it costs.
  • Get married. Have the dream wedding. Fly everyone I wan’t there for that speciel day to Mexico(or someplace equally beautiful) and get married on the beach. That’s the dream.
  • The small materialist that lives somewher deep within me would like to add a Michael Kors watch/bag and something from Vivienne Westwoods collection.
  • Dream Car. I would get a black 1967 Chevy Impala. That’s my absolute dream car! It’s such a beautiful car and yeah, it’s Dean Winchester’s Car…come on, which Supernatural Fan doesn’t want that car?

And…I guess that’s it. That’s all I can come up with at the moment.

Day 22-Your worst habits

My worst habits are probably;

  • If I’m watching a movie/TV-show or something I simply don’t listen if your trying to talk to me, it’s nearly impossible to get me to focus then.
  • I am a terrible procastinator.
  • I sometimes suffer from “foot-in-mouth.syndrome”. Not thinking before you speak sometimes puts you in a very akward situation…
  • smoking, something that i’m trying to stop doing.
  • I’m not really a bad eater but some periods I stuff alot of empty calories, sugar and well honestly utter sh*t into my body, so I guess that is sort of a bad habit.

I can’t really think of any other bad-habits at the moment, so this will have to do :-)

Modern Family

So it might be a bit silly, but I’m addicted to Modern Family right now. I just love the dynamic between Jay Pritchett and his extended family. And it’s great that the show has so different kinds of families, since I personally think you can’t really say that there’s is a “typical” family anymore.

So not much writing has been going on because I’ve been having a small MF-Marathon the past week.

I’ll try to continue the 30 Days Challenge asap though, I will not quit it!

Day 20- What makes you happy?

There’s a lot of different kinds of happiness and I’ve chosen to list various things that make me smiley and in a good mood.

  • The Man
  • My Friends
  • Chocolate
  • A really good book or movie
  • My favorite song at the moment.
  • A really well made cup of coffee
  • The first day when it’s warm enough to walk barefoot.
  • Being at sea.

It’s the smaller and bigger things in life that makes us happy. We should take advantage and care of those moments. So be happy people!

Day 19- Your favourite Movie.

My friends often approach me with; Recommend a movie for me to watch. What’s a really good movie…etc. etc.
Because they know that I watch a lot of movies and love doing so. But when it comes to recommending a movie to someone else, or chosing a “favourite” one, I struggle.

What you consider a “good movie” is such a broad aspect, so individual. I, myself like a very different reign of films. Everything from sappy romantic comedies to psychological thrillers. Films based on true events to cult proclaimed, slightly strange ones.

Honestly? I hate recommending movies to people, I sometimes (very seldom these days) review them on Flixster and ranting about films is a favorite past-time of mine but telling someone which movie they should watch? No thank you.

So which movie is my fabourite one? How do you choose just one? It’s nearly impossible if you ask me. But, alas, I have managed to choose one;

Stand by Me.

Surprisingly it isn’t one starring Mr. Depp, but Rob Reiners Stand by Me is one of my personal “Feel Good” flicks that I can watch over and over again without tiering. It begins with Richard Dreyfuss narrating as he sits in a car thinking back on his childhood after learning a close friend died;

” I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being. It happened in the summer of 1959 – a long time ago, but only if you measure in terms of years. I was living in a small town in Oregon called Castle Rock; there were only twelve hundred and eighty-one people, but to me it was the whole world.”

 

 

I love that beginning. The fact that this is based on a novel by Stephen King surprised me when I first learned that information. To me, at the time, it seemed so unlike the other works of Mr. King I was familiar with. But reading the novel and watching the movie over and over again has made me realize that it does have some trademark “Stephen King feel” to it.

So,the movie is basically about a man who after finding out about his friends tragic death writes down their story. A story about the best summer they ever had together. The summer the four best friends, Gordie(The writer), Chris, Teddy and Vern set out to find the corpse of a boy that has gone missing. We follow them through their journey and watch the adventure of their lives…well, any 12 year old going on 13 would think of it as an adventure…

It’s such an easygoing film with perfect casting. You feel like your actually there with the boys and their very real 12-year old issues and thoughts. It portrays that special bonds of friendship that you only experience as a kid.
I have literally watched this movie  too many times to count and every time I fall in love with something. It might be the tragic state of Chris Chambers home life, the child we all know is somewhere inside us portrayed by Vern or the pure brilliance of the game Mailbox Baseball that Ace and Eyeball of the Cobras has invented. My love for this film might have to do with the fact that I can relate to some of those typical small hometown scenarios.
The lightheartedness mixed with the sometimes hard truth of life is just breathtakingly brilliant. I’ll end with my favorite line from the movie(because I could go on forever);

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?”

That is one of my favorite movies, along with Fight Club, Donnie Darko, Love Actually, The Notebook, Sweeney Todd, Moulin Rouge and so on. The list really never ends, and it’s a very mixed selection.
