this photo was taken last week when i was waiting for the emission testing and annual registration of my car. i wasn’t in the mood to dress up for work so i basically jumped out of bed, took a quick shower, hid my hair in a headband, wore my favorite shirt and black leggings. i think my blue bag saved the outfit (it’s a christmas gift from harry in 2009 — which i pre-chose by the way as he is so clueless about shopping! LOL)
before harry, i’ve been single for 5 years — dating but no commitments. i’ve had my heart broken a couple of times because a guy couldn’t commit to me — intimidated by me, the way i think and my strong personality. i tend to be irrational, sarcastic, be tomboy, a perfectionist, spontanoues, moody, aggressive, and…smarter?haha! let’s just say i laughed at picked up lines to guys’ faces sometimes intentionally. and welp, i don’t dress as simple as other typical girls too. i got frustrated with going home alone everyday that i asked our manager who was a good friend if there is something wrong with me. he told me, “well, maybe you need someone stronger than you. who can control you.”
oh, he was so wrong! i didn’t need someone who can control me, i needed someone who would complement me. i got the guy of my dreams and more. harry and i are total opposites in pretty weird (and funny) ways.
i drive = he cooks the dinner.
i love sports and was an athlete = he was an orator and a student body president.
i love technology = he loves history.
i love punk rock, brit rock, indie and new wave music = he loves oldies and standards.
i am health conscious = he doesn’t even love wheat bread (LOL)
i love change and spontaneity = he likes to be safely where he is now
i love the beach = he loves the mountains
i tend to freak out easily = he stays calm
i like dogs = he likes cats
but you see, even with our opposite loves and personalities, we mesh well because we respect and support each other. and i have never been happier.
