Jump!

Hello guys! I can't tell you how many time I have rewritten this post, but I think I'm finally happy with it. Here it goes...

Don't be afraid, it gets better. Jump!!!


Lately I've been facing a question that probably lays in the back of the head of every blogger out there, amateur or not, at some point. "Why do I do this?" After much consideration, I'd like to say that my main reason is to provide some sort of entertainment for my readers, and maybe even help some of you with an issue you might have. So nice of me! But I'm human, that altruistic reason couldn't possibly be enough, there must be some selfish reasons, and there are plenty. Most of them are not worth sharing, but there's one in particular that shocked me when I realized it. I love when I'm having a conversation with someone, and they bring up my blog, that's my big selfish reason to write.

This post isn't some TV show review or a guide to help you make the best of a given situation, this is about me, about sharing what's going on in my life lately. So, from here onwards, this is between us.

I spent a bit over a month on a trip visiting my family, and, as much as I tried and said I wanted to, I couldn't really rest much. Most of my days were spent driving around, helping around the house, playing with my little cousins and so on. Busy days, even busier nights. Drinking, partying, you name it, even the occasional joint to make things more interesting. Nothing in excess, never got drunk, or too high, but definitely had a lot of fun. And it was the best that could've possibly happened to me.

It was proof that keeping yourself busy, surrounded by those that you love and love you back, is the best medicine for most of life issues. Now that I'm home and I've caught up with everything that went down around here, I finally feel ready. Ready for what? For whatever hell life has planned for me, but, also, ready to take any opportunities that might show up along the way. Or that might have showed up already...

There's this girl... (Come on, you HAD to see this one coming) We've been talking a lot lately and we seem to get along just fine. I'm doing my best not to self-sabotage. Why? I'm scared, you know? I've been out of the game for a long time, I don't think I even remember how to play anymore. But the thing is, a player always wants to play, you can only sit on the bench for so long... I don't even know what I'm looking for, if I'm looking for anything. Do I just want to have fun? Am I ready to jump into a serious relationship? I don't know, and the beauty of not knowing what you want is that you don't set expectations, whatever happens, happens. I'm actually enjoying talking to her all day long, and I think she does too.

What's next? To jump! Ha, it took me forever to get to the post's title this time. As I always advice people, if you already know you like that special someone, ask them out and see where things go, if they go anywhere. What's the point of waiting? Don't rush it, but don't start giving excuses not to ever do it. I guess it's time for me to read on my own Going to ask for a date? Dating tips!

Thank you for reading, I hope I kept you distracted for a while. I'll keep you guys posted! Wish me luck!
