It’s about halfway through my spring term now, and I am certainly lacking motivation. Assignments are piling up, exams are right around the corner, and summer is so close, yet so far.
As i sit here and read over my college psychology text book, the text implies that in order for romantic love to exist, there must be a distinct amount of similarities between the couples; this may be age, educational status, nationality, race, financial stability, or some other factor. Does the saying “opposites attract” really mean nothing then?
My parents are quite opposite from one another, but that doesn’t mean they don’t love one another. I think that having opposing things such as personalities or point of view can actually strengthen love and make it more interesting. The opportunity of accepting someone for who they are and learning to deal with the differences is a very strong feat to undertake; doing so, however, I believe, will exponentially increase the love that exists between one person and another.
As society progresses, more people learn to appreciate others who are different from themselves. Our generation is unlike the previous ones. Judging another by the color of their skin is starting to dwindle away, and we become more open-minded. Being surrounded by different people allows us to see the world in a completely different way.
I believe that love has no barriers. It’s not something you think about; It’s not something you decide or choose; it’s something that you feel, and something that just happens. Something that will hopefully happen to me as well…in the future…
It seems spring is just around the corner now. It’s been quite warm the past couple of days (even though it is still winter). Next week is going to be quite brutal for me - finals and all; Right after that, however, i get to enjoy a week of spring break :)
I don’t even think this is considered a haul… but hey. Working at Macy’s certainly has it’s perks, one of them being the enjoyment of a 20% associate discount.
So i went down to the men’s department and bought this new Andrew Fezza Sportcoat (originally $250.00) for only $69.99, considering it was already on sale for $99.99 prior to my purchase. I’m quite pleased with the purchase considering I will be using it casually; therefore the somewhat low price isn’t going to worry me as much about using it basically everywhere. It’s a two button blazer with two pockets at the bottom front. The outside chest pocket seems to be fake and stitched, for I am still having trouble trying to pry it open. There are two inner pockets, however, which i find awesome. I was trying to look for my size, which is a 42s, but sadly they only had a size 42R, which was quite long on the sleeves. I might have to go to an alteration center and get that fixed for me.
My second purchase was an Alfani slip on black leather shoe. It’s very elegant looking for the mere $23.99 that i spent on it (thank you associate discount). During my maturation period, my fashionistic taste has somewhat been altered, for I now prefer loafers and dress shoes rather than Jordan’s and Kobe’s….not that i have any problem with those types of shoes, for I do still wear them. It’s a size 8.5 and features a shiny buckle on the front, adding minimalistic elegance to the style. It’s simple, and comfortable, which is all that matters to me.
All in all, I am happy with these two purchases. It’s a great addition to my somewhat limited wardrobe that I am currently trying to transition and expand. My fragrance collection is okay for now, so I might try to obtain more clothing pieces.
