Untold wishes

I really want to tell him one of my wishes. That would be I wish I end up with someone who loves me as much as I love him.

Note to myself

  1. "Anything is possible. 
  2. Lead a life of positivity. 
  3. The only thing I can control is my attitude towards life.
  4. I always have a choice.
  5. Even the longest journey begins with a single step.
  6. Count your blessing."

There is a trivial question that I could never answer. That is why some people can only have a long term relationship/ friendship with only one gender. For example, there is this person (female) who I know that can only be good friend with guys. She can never make a long term and meaningful relationship with women. As soon as, she gets too close something would happen to split her with those female friends. I have some hypothesis but I am wondering if there is anyone out there with a good explanation as why this happens.

Probably, this has been the best compliment I have ever received. Someone wants to clone me :D

No mood

It is one of those Mondays that I just want to go home, have a glass of cold lemonade in one hand and a book on the other, sit somewhere and read.

Yesterday, after 2.5 hrs and two trips to Home Depot, I was successfully fixed the lock for my mail box. I had to take some pieces from the new lock and some pieces from the old lock until it worked. I had a very good sense of accomplishment and for the first time I realized how a football player might feel after scoring a goal.       

Agora 2009

I just watched Agora, the movie. It was very heavy. It will take me few days to digest everything. The soundtrack was amazing too. More I learn about the history, more I realize that there is no chance for mankind to make peace and try to accept and respect each others.
If I am not mistaken, there are Persian singers in two different parts of the movie

A good read

"When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation.  Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do.  Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you.  It’s not pride – it’s self-respect.  Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people.  Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life.  Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for anything less than what you deserve." from here
