Ok... I have officially moved into a new place. (That makes how many moves before I turn 21????)

And in THREE DAYS... THREE DAYS ladies and gentlemen, I will be turning 21. I don't make a big deal about my birthdays... but freakin' I'm turning 21.

It's really interesting... this situation that most couples end up getting themselves into (I do not exclude myself from this).
Women want things without having to ask for them.
Men are simply not telepathic.
So where do they go from there???
A compromise of sorts must be made. Each relationship involves compromise right?
Women need to understand that men cannot read their minds. Sometimes even the most obvious of hints doesn't work. It really is ok to simply just ask for what you want or need.
Men need to remember that women like/need to feel special. Sometimes it really is nice when men do something to show that without being asked... that's what makes them feel special.

While in West Virginia, my fiance's great uncle told us a story of how he was watching Dr. Phil with his wife and they heard advice that they wanted to put into action. Dr. Phil supposedly said to one man that when he wakes up he should first think of a way to make his wife feel special and vice versa for the wife to the husband. So my fiance's great uncle felt really special when three days in a row his wife woke up extra early to cook him a fantastic breakfast. On the fourth day he was disappointed to find no breakfast waiting for him, just his wife sipping coffee in the kitchen. She had looked at him and simply said it was time for him to reciprocate. After sharing that he and his wife then laughed and smiled at each other.

I shared that story because it was funny as heck when he shared it with us... nor am I a fan of Dr. Phil or advocating him in any way...

...but the advice however is well worth taking.

I can only do my best to take it to heart.

I love my fiance with all my heart. I've never outright shared my emotions on this thing. But I love him and know without a doubt he is the one for me. He is my hero.

Welcome Back... not really...

Well, all... I'm back from the East Coast... and to be honest, I miss it already... freakin' California sucks.

I knew as soon as I arrived that I would love it there.

I had stepped off that plane and straight into the West Virginian air... and my lungs had to rejoice... "OH MY GOD... NO SMOG!!! ACTUAL CLEAN AIR!!!"

My lungs however weren't the only part of me having a field day, my eyes were totally enjoying the colors of the autumn fall as leaves were changing color. Reds, golds, browns, yellows, oranges and of course GREEN. It was beautiful.

Of course I was the only Asian around for a radius of 60 miles in the town where we were staying but everyone was hospitable and nice. It was just great...

I returned to LAX yesterday... and my lungs were crying, "What happened to the clean air???? Why am I now breathing in smog???" The airport was busy and full of people... as it always is. The freeways/highways are never empty. And people wonder why I would leave such a place as Southern California for West Virginia... well... if you knew me... you wouldn't really wonder. West Virginia... it's "Wild & Wonderful"... and I'm almost there.

P.S. In support and respect for our troops... "Ooo-rah"
