...that is how it is.
Right now, solar eclipse is underway. This morning, I tried looking for any eclipse glasses. (Why need eclipse glasses? It will protect your eyes from watching the solar eclipse. Also, you are able to clearly see the solar eclipse as it filters most of the sunlight.) Everywhere was sold out. FYI, the last solar eclipse occurred in 1979. (Then again, I did not come prepared.)
Now, I will write about this blog post.
(I am here multi-tasking. How, so? As I write this post, I am listening to Lifehouse song, "It Is What It Is." Also, the TV is left on, as I watch the news about the solar eclipse, while I drink my coffee.)
Again, it is what it is...that is how it is.
Somehow, I meet women while I run errands or something. (When I meet them, they are on vacation.) Apparently, they live far away from me. It just happens. Possibly, they assume the long-distance relationship is not gonna go anywhere.
Picture shown above of great couple, Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani. Kumail's movie, "The Big Sick," talks about their true romantic story. Kumail plays himself. FYI, they were the screenwriters of the movie.
What do you mean by relationship goals?
It is tough to be open towards people. I guess you can say I am open, ever since I started on this blog. (Whoa, this is my 87th blog post and counting.)
Why write about "openness?"
It came to my mind. It is crazy how some people bottle up their emotions. (They secretly keep it low key.) How do you know? I know some people.
Then again, it depends on the situation as well. How, so? I lost my sister tragically. I only wanted to be alone. (I chose to be isolated.)
Remember, you cannot force anybody to open up.
Call myself a great listener. I usually meet people, then they just unexpectedly vent to me. How, so? Possibly, I connect with them. Then, they start venting. Who knows?
Remember, everything happens for a reason. It is our choice to be "open." We choose our friends. This goes back to my high school PE coach. How, so? He told my class many times, "Life is all about choices."
Example of people who bottle up their emotions:
Why were you there anyway?
My best friend's Uncle is retiring from the US Navy as Master Chief of 30 years.
How is your best friend related to Uncle?
My best friend's mother is the sister of Uncle's wife.
Why attend anyway?
I am Shawn Hunter of TV show, "Boy Meets World." If you have not seen the show, Shawn gets along with his best friend's family.
I was in San Diego from July 13 to July 17. (FYI, my best friend flew with his sister and mother to SD.)
Before you read, I believe this is the longest blog post I have ever written. If you are impatient, read only the bold sentences.
What do you mean? Even though I am single, I am writing a letter to my future girlfriend.
Why, so? Yesterday, I watched a romantic movie, "The Big Sick," all alone. (By the way, it was a great movie. Also, it is based on a true story from the actor, Kumail Nanjiani, in "The Big Sick".) I am a hopeless, romantic man seeking woman.
Here attached below is my written letter to her: (Somehow, the paper curled as I was writing. Sorry.)
What do you mean?
I can say whatever I want to an attractive lady. Obviously, it is up to the lady. (It is her choice.) I cannot force the issue. Let it be.
Many examples shown below:
This is a toughest blog post to write about.
My dad and I had a history. People see me as a nice, sweet guy. My close friends know I have a temper. (I have controlled my temper. Good news: It is better than ever before.)
What do you mean by having a history with your dad? To this day, we have our disagreements. Before, we took it at an extreme level. How, so? We kept arguing. (Both hotheads always proving a point to each other.) You can never win an argument. (Now, I have learned that. Just let it be.)
Remember the common saying, "Like father, like son." It is true. A list shown below is how I am similar to my father:
About a month ago, I did vlog about this. I just witnessed a "Precious Moment" at San Francisco International Airport on Friday, March 24, 2017.
Why was I here anyway?
I just dropped off my parents because they will be flying to the Philippines. I walked with my parents until the security checkpoint. Then, I hugged them. (And I told them, "I love you.") After my parents and I parted ways, I saw a man and lady kissing.
I witnessed a precious moment. (Like everybody else, I just stopped and stared at the young couple.)
It was PDA aka Public Displays of Affection.
To all the mothers out there. In my heart, Mother's Day is every day to me.
Last Sunday, I did not get to see my mom until 8pm.
Because I worked all day.
What did you tell your mom?
Obviously, I greeted her with a hug. Then, I nervously told her, "I love you, Mom.
Why were you nervous?
I am not used to saying, "I love you," to my parents. I show my love to them only through action.
What do you mean?
At a park, I was playing one-on-one basketball against Jerry.
Who is Jerry? I just met him. Why play him? I miss playing basketball so I asked him to challenge me in a game up to 11. Also, he had a basketball. (I have a basketball but it is a bit flat. I cannot find the needle pump as well.)
What does this story have to do with tennis meeting basketball?
