Thanksgiving time = relatives and friends asking whether you are still single time!
And when I say yes, they ask what I am looking for in men and tell me not to be so picky.
Am I that picky?
I do not care much about ethnicity, looks (being clean is good and I also love great smiles), or age (as long as he is at most -/+8 my age). As a quite tall girl of 5’9, I am always asked by my friends and family that would I mind if my SO is shorter than I am. Not really, honestly. I can deal with it if he has a wonderful personality and we love each other. I am also very clumsy and can deal with not wearing high heels (but it would be a plus if he is shorter than I am AND do not mind at all if I wear heels. That would be so cool of him.)
But I do want a relationship with a person who is kindhearted, honest, tolerant of my slightly neurotic tendencies, curious about the world, knows me well, and openminded.

Not the best day out there. Have to go for a run later. And maybe cry in the shower.
I can be overwhelming and neurotic at times, especially today. But my good friend F describes me as “special, exciting, and fun”. :’)

I have been quite active these days and I felt so goddamn energetic. I love when my muscles are fucking sore and I almost could not get off my bed due to an intense workout from the previous day.
Thur night: Weight training and kickboxing with C. I sweated like a pig, trainer was amazing.
Fri night: Swing dance for a few hours wohooo! Social dancing is a very interesting thing because you are able to dance with A LOT of people per night; each person has a different vibe and style, and in some extent you even get to know the person’s personality just by dancing with him/her. I had the most amazing chemistry with several leads yesterday…ah. Also!! When I was learning how to dance Jazz, my quite experienced lead said “you are a good follow”. Awww. I was speechless and extremely happy :-)
Sat: jogged around the neighborhood. And know what, for the first time I did not run out of breath. I have finally learned how to control my breathing properly. It’s a wonderful feeling.
Sun night (tomorrow): Kickboxing + weight training.
Mon: Zumba with F, yippee!
Tue: Rest day/light jog
Wed: Weight training + some cardio
Thur~Sun: will not be in town—-so I must find ways to work out!
