Infatuation’s Final Destination

Ever so often you see yourself in a piece of literature.

Sometimes what you find staring back at you…isn’t all pleasant!

“I was suffering the easily foreseeable consequences. Addiction is the hallmark of every infatuation-based love story. It all begins when the object of your adoration bestows upon you a heady, hallucinogenic dose of something you never dared to admit you wanted-an emotional speedball, perhaps, of thunderous love and roiling excitement.

Soon you start craving that intense attention, with a hungry obsession of any junkie. When the drug is witheld, you promptly turn sick, crazy, and depleted (not to mention resentful of the dealer who encouraged this addiction in the first place but now refuses to pony up the good stuff anymore– despite the fact that you know he has it hidden somewhere, goddamn it, because he used to give it to you for free). Next stage finds you skinny and shaking in a corner, certain only that you would sell your soul or rob your neighbors just to have ‘that thing’ even one more time.

Meanwhile, the object of your adoration has now become repulsed by you. He looks at you like you’re someone he’s never met before, much less someone he once loved with high passion. The irony is, you can hardly blame him. I mean, check yourself out. You’re a pathetic mess, unrecognizable even to your own eyes.

So that’s it. You have now reached infatuation’s final destination– the complete and merciless devaluation of self.” page 20 – Eat, Pray, Love

my MATERIALISTIC 2012 resolutions!**5 month Update

So might be selfish of me but i’m sitting here post-Christmas gifts unwrapping and receiving and i’m thinking about the things that i did get (very grateful for) but the many man many other things that i do want.

I know i know…very materialistic of me! but i decided to just embrace it and create a list of things i intend (or at least wish) to get in 2012.

my Materialistic 2012 resolutions

  1. Designer handbag
  2. new car
  3. something from Apple
  4. A tablet PC: preferably Nook Color, Kindle Fire, Ipad
  5. new camera
  6. new phone
  7. a piece of diamond jewelry
  8. brown boots
  9. 32″ flat screen TV
  10. decorative house stuff: wall painting, throw pillows etc

** (12/28/2011) they say ask and you shall receive.

the new year hasn’t even begun yet and I already received one thing from my list.

i received new brown boots from a bestie for Christmas.

lets see how quickly the other things are scratched off the list.

***(03/27/2012) i’m updating this a bit late because to be honest, i didn’t even realize

I was ticking something new off my wishlist. I got my new phone back in

the beginning of February and boy was it an upgrade lol Yes getting this new phone

was because my old one gave out. But still it shows how when you write things down, sometimes life as a way of making it happen even without your help 🙂

***(04/09/2012) i got a tv!!!! not sure if its a 32″ but i think it is and it might even be bigger than that. Its not flat screen but you know i’m quite happy with that too. But best of all….it was free! Someday say Hallelujah

***oh and you know what else? I’m sitting here updating about the tv, i realize that I so also have some decorative house stuff. Only a painting and a vase set so far but i’m getting there and it will only get better

***(05/17/2012) OMG i can’t belive I am ticking this off my wish list! In a way this was my impossible thing..the one i never truly believed I could ever acquire but it happened….i got a car!!! In actuality i’m about a week late with this update. I actually took the car home on May 11, 2012! Its only May and I’ve already accomplished 5/10 things on my list. And my car is better than I ever expected to get..its a 2001 which is a whopping 6year jump from my previous old banged up Camry. Have you ever heard of the “Write it Down, Make it Happen” campaign? Coz now i’m a strong supporter. With God all things are possible 😀
