"i watched/played/read this because of you"
ARE YOU WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?
During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”
The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?”
In all seriousness, she answered “How did you know?”
"Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind." replied the author.
Here’s the answer:
Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.
People in love sometimes say, I was swept of my feet. Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.
Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.
Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.
At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.
People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes.
Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.
I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later.
Because (listen carefully to this)
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found.
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.
Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.
Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.
Remember this always: the universe determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go!
I actually started filling this out in August, and I thought now would be a good time to finish this.
To be honest, I’m not entirely sure how to feel about 2013. I mean, in a general not-just-talking-about-art way it wasn’t bad; I (finally) finished the AAOT, so that’s out of the way, and I think I did well saving up my money for the most part. Art-wise I got really experimental, specifically with colors, and I ended up getting more of a taste on storyboarding by (attempting) to make my own short.
Although, really… the amount I drew (besides doodling) really deteriorated during the later part of the year. This year my schedules tended to be busier, and I wasn’t used to really trying to push to make time for art. I mean, when it was just school, I had a lot of time I could use for art. This year I had a hard time pushing myself to do anything besides doodle on some paper for half an hour (or less) whenever I was lazing around at home.
But now, since I’ve got all the general classes out of the way, I’m kind of at a stand still on what’s the next step I should take. (Look for a job in my desired field? Apply to colleges? Both?) So it looks like I’ll have the time to catch up on what I missed this past year!
AND NOW SOME RESOLUTIONS FOR MYSELF FOR 2014

A little table to how to get rid of all that negative self-talk. We have to learn look at the good in situations too, instead of dwelling on things we can’t change- because you know what? We may not be able to change what is happening but we CAN change how we view it!These are all great but I feel the 2nd to last is particularly noteworthy for how many complaints I see about it on tumblr
SORRY GUYS I know I said I’d upload scribbles but hahaaaa summer classes just started (ughhhdjghfksdg)
HAVE SOME VERY QUICK PIKACHU SCRIBBLES FROM SOME NIGHTS AGO?
read the book, kids
I’m just gonna post this because the movie comes out in a couple of weeks and I seriously don’t want anyone to go in with false expectations. That book means way too much to me to be able to stand people who will be complaining that it was “too dark” or they “didn’t like any of the characters” (*cough* I’m looking at YOU, MOM).
Like the PP says, read the fucking book. It’s not even 200 pages. It’s like 180.
I’ve actually been tempted to see this myself, and its been awhile since I read this in high school. You can read The Great Gatsby for free online thanks to a Creative Commons edition, as well as watch a good breakdown of the book from Crash Course with John Green’s two part video set here and here.
one of many reasons i was ANNOYED by the trailers was the stuff mentioned up there
rly glad someone put it in words better than i could
