No regrets

As some of you know, I was recently dating a guy from Korea. Unfortunately, he went back to Korea and he decided that a long distance relationship was not the way he wanted to go. Although I was upset, I am grateful for the time we spent together in London and while most people will regret everything in my situation, I don’t. I did doubt that a long distance relationship would work but I had the intentions of trying it but I suppose it really wasn’t meant to be.

Although we were aware that our time was going to be short when we started dating, I had a great time with him. I really enjoyed his company and I felt that we had a connection. I’m usually really awkward when there is silence, but I felt so comfortable with you.

I am far from the adventurous type but I was more open to trying things out of my norm with him. We went to Liverpool and Manchester on our last weekend together, you took me to my first football match, we went to my favourite museum, the theatre and would just hangout when we wanted to. You were really supportive when I found out about my mum and you asked about her progress almost everyday, as if you had known her. We had a lot in common that we didn’t realise. I loved the way you would ask me what I wanted to eat even though you knew I would always answer, ‘I don’t know, anything, I don’t mind!’.

And our last sunset together was beautiful.

Our time together was short, but our relationship meant more to me than any of my longer relationships. When I cried on the coach I must have really freaked you out! I’m sorry. =P I was emotional from lack of sleep and I kept thinking about the fact it was our last weekend together. I miss you but to have you as a friend is awesome and I hope we will meet again when I go back to Korea. I know time difference is a big problem and you are probably really busy but please stay in contact as often as you can.

The only thing I regret, is not telling you how thankful I am for everything you did for me and our time together.

Life after Death

(A post taken from my tumblr, http://dinadinosaur.tumblr.com , that I originally pasted two years ago)

On Tuesday I finally had a day off work, but my sister woke me up at 8am and asked for my help to finish off some work. She needed the work for that evening as it was her exibition for her degree (Product Design). So I went along with her to her university even though I was super tired.

I was pissed off at the fact I had to go and do something for her on the only day I had off, luckily she told me she didn’t need help any more at about 12pm. So I started to go home.
As my sister went to a university in the middle of a huge park!! I had to jump on the mini bus that goes from the university to the train station. As the bus was driving through the park, I noticed a tree that had been cut down.
Everyone knows that, when a tree has been cut down it doesn’t grow any leaves or nothing, it is dead once it has been detached from it’s root. But this tree that was disconnected from its roots completely was laying on the ground, with fresh leaves on it! And you could tell that it wasn’t cut down recently because the stump was covered in moss and fungous.

I felt something strange when I saw this tree. It was like it showed me that the world is still beautiful even though us humans are damaging it with or without realising. It was asif the tree was told it couldn’t live anymore but it fought against what it was told and carried on growing.Okay so maybe it was still connected to its roots but it didn’t look like it was and that’s what made me think it was so amazing!

Anyway I was happy for the rest of the day after seeing the tree. I had a positive out look on the rest of the day. =]

Just thought I would share it with you guys as it touched me for some strange reason!!

Unfortunatly I couldn’t take a picture of the tree as I was on a moving bus and was too amazed by what I saw to stop and think of taking a picture!

Don’t give up hope as there is always a way of getting around things and doing what you want to do.
