Act of Randomness

Last month, I finally had the courage to try something new (because I was bored)!

Guess what I did?!

No?

Well, I tried signing up to an online dating website. lol~

At first, it was all just a random act of boring-ness so I thought “Why the hell not?”

I checked several profiles. Joined the other active members in the forum by posting random videos and gifs, and welcoming newbies like me. Sending out simple “Hi’s” and “Hello’s” to people who are only looking for friendships.

After a week of doing so, I finally MADE some friends online which is kind of revitalizing to me because I know I’ve been working too hard, “alone” in my own room and personal bubble.

It was so nice to hear stories from different people around the world. I got to know cultures, places, some plans, some types of people, perspectives, etc.

This made me realize that I am missing a lot of things in this life. And a little part of me still can’t believe that something so random will turn into something wonderful and englightening.

If you asked me several months to join an online dating website, I would surely be offended and give you a big “NO!” But if you will ask me now if I will recommend someone to try online [personal] forums, I will encourage them to give it a go.

You will never know why something exists until you try it for yourself.

I’m glad I did this.

Whoa there!!! Wow! Super wow! I mean…

The video was so well-composed and I am now so, sooooo, intrigued about this fanfic! I’m gonna download it now and save and read once I’m done with my current one which is Popcorn Love by chrmpoet.

Now I’m back to reading and dreaming.

Music of the Week: On This Winter’s Night by Lady Antebellum

So, it’s already December and I think it will be best to start the week with what signifies it. So, for the next few weeks, the theme, of course, will be Christmas. And to start if off, we have On This Winter’s Night by the ever great Lady Antebellum! I’ve been a fan of them since I first heard Need You Now in 2011 but I admit that I didn’t or haven’t tried to hear any songs from them. It’s just that I know the musics I’d like to listen to and I don’t prefer one band or musician over the others because my mood changes and I like to listen to songs I can relate to. Yeah, I know we all are! So it’s no big deal if you don’t like this music or the band. Just being you is cool. XOXO – aLLy

Lyrics

This winter’s night
Stars shine like silver bells
This winter’s night
The mistletoe kiss and tell
Snowflakes fall like frosting
And I sit on the street
Strangers look like neighbors
With every smile that you meet

But here in my arms I’ll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter’s night
(We’ll look back on the year)
On this winter’s night
(We’ll count our blessings)
On this Winter’s night
We will remember

This winter’s night
Icicle lights will trim the tree
This winter’s night
Wrapped a present or two from you and me
Tuck our children into bed
And dream the night away
Til’ the sun dawns in the mornin
With the joy of Christmas day

But here in my arms I’ll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter’s night
(We’ll look back on the year)
On this winter’s night
(We’ll count our blessings)
On this Winter’s night
We will remember

The wisemen heard the angels sing
And Him like soft and robe
The king became a child a long long time ago
And the child became a king
So the whole wide world will know
What christmas really is
