Overshare

With one full month into the New Year, so much is going on I thought I'd take a moment to share.

I'm running the 2013 NY marathon. *gasps* There's an opportunity for me to gain automatic entry as long I complete 4 not so simple steps. Well, I completed step 1 the end of last month and I'm training for step 2. This is going to take some dedication, but I'm up for the challenge. At some point I'll even join a team or find a partner.

I've officially started the job hunt. I don't remember it being this difficult before but man, I'm having a hard time even getting an interview. I'm not too worried about it though. Things always work out the way they are suppose to. So I'll just keep doing my part to make sure I'm gainfully employed.

I will travel abroad before I leave NYU. Not exactly sure if it will be this summer, next winter or next summer. It all depends on finances but my goal is to spend at least 3 weeks or so in another country. Soaking up culture and packing on the pounds. I've heard studying abroad is an excuse to gain an excessive amount of weight and I'm all for it. Kidding.

Last but not least, what kind of serial dater would I be if I didn't include any updates on my serial dating.

I've known two things for a while and I stick to them to this day.

1. Actions speak louder than words.
2. Words are just as important as actions.

Life is especially interesting when you're dating two people who are extremely good at one but not the other.

One guy I was seeing, term used loosely, was able to vocalize exactly what he wanted from me and how he saw a future. Unfortunately, his actions were not lining up with those beautiful words. Eventually I stopped caring and he stopped pursuing.

The other showed me a great deal about how he felt in his actions, but just couldn't vocalize much else. Towards the end his actions were no longer present. Without words or actions, there isn't much of anything to work with.

With a bruised ego and hurt feelings, I maintain that it just wasn't in the cards with either. They weren't into me enough and I'm not the type to force anything with anyone. Even though I don't need 100% efficiency on both actions and words, I don't give credit when there's no effort. In the end, I'm still a hopeless romantic. No bitterness or ill will can be found here. Ultimately, I know He has a plan for me. Whatever shall be shall be.
