She’s the one you call when you’re bored because she makes you laugh. She’s the one you talk to when you’re feeling down because she’s willing to lend an ear and be a friend. She’s not the one you call when you need a date to your company’s Christmas party, or to go dancing with on a Saturday night. She’s the one you spend time with between girlfriends, before you find "The One". You know, the one who you keep around in the meantime.

She’s not one of the guys, not a tomboy, but you don’t look at her as a "real" woman, either. She’s not bitchy enough, moody enough, or sexy enough to be seen in that light. She’s too laid-back, too easily amused by the same things your male buddies are amused by. She’s too understanding, too comfortable – she doesn’t make you feel nervous or excited the way a "real" woman does. But she’s cool, and nice, and funny, and attractive enough that when you’re lonely or horny and need intimate female companionship, she’ll do just fine. You don’t have to wine and dine her because she knows the real you already, and you don’t have any facades to keep up, no pretenses to preserve. You’re not trying to get anything of substance out of her. She’s not easy, but you know that she cares about you and is attracted to you, and that she’ll give you the intimacy you need. And you know you don’t have to explain yourself or the situation, that she’ll be able to cope with the fact that this isn’t the beginning of a relationship or that there’s any possibility that you have any real romantic feelings for her. She’ll settle for a goodbye hug and a promise to call her and tell her how the date went. She’s just so cool . . . why can’t all women be like that?!

But deep down, if you really think about it (which you probably don’t because to you, the situation between the two of you isn’t important enough to merit any real thought), you know that it’s really not fair. You know that although she would never say it, it hurts her to know that despite all her good points and all the fun you two have, you don’t think she’s good enough to spend any real time with. Sure, it’s mostly her fault, because she doesn’t have to give in to your needs – she could play the hard-to-get bitch like the rest of them do, if she really wanted to. But you and she both know that she probably couldn’t pull it off. Maybe she’s too short, or a little overweight, or has a big birthmark on her forehead, or works at Taco Bell. Whatever the reason, somehow life has given her a lot of really great qualities but has left out the ones that men want (or think they want) in a woman. So she remains forever the funny friend, the steadfast companion, the secret lover, and you go on searching for your goddess who will somehow be everything you ever wanted in a woman.

You’ll joke to her that she should be the best man at your wedding, and she’ll laugh and make a joke about a smelly rental tux.

She doesn’t captivate you with her beauty, or open doors with her smile. Mainly she blends in with the crowd. She’s safe. She doesn’t want to be the center of attention and turn the heads of everyone in the room. But she wants to turn someone’s head. She wants to be special to someone, too. We all do.

She has feelings. She has a heart. In fact, she probably has a bigger and better heart than any woman you’ve ever known because she’s had a front-row seat to The Mess That Is Your Life, and she likes you anyway. She obviously sees something worthwhile and redeeming in you because although you’ve given her nothing, absolutely no reason to still be around, she is.

I just want to let every guy know who’s ever had the good fortune to have a Meantime Girl that we may be a lot of fun, but we cry, too. A lot.

And someday we won’t be around.

i love incubus. i worship their lyrics. and i think brandon boyd is freaking hottt.

(and besides, i think kean looks like brandon boyd.. the hair, the tattoo, the outfit, the moves.. ahhh! hotttness)

the first song i heard from them is Pardon Me, when i was in 1st year high school, and i just fell in love with the band. all of their albums are just simply perfect. make yourself, morning view, a crow left of the murder, fungus amongus, SCIENCE, enjoy, light grenades.

BLACK HEART INERTIA is straight up awsome. i officially dub it as my song. the lyrics are beautiful and well thought out. the keyword in the song is "inertia" which means "the resistance of a mass, i.e., any physical object, to a change in its state of motion." skeptical of love, the singer needs someone to come along and change his views. he wants change, but his heart is resistant to it. sounds like me! super.. love it!

We got married.

Its a reality tv show in Korea. Where two random celebrity, pairs up and pretends to get married and live a married life. I love this cause Kim Hyun Joong (Yoon Ji Hoo) is in it. And he was paired with Hwang Bo. It was aired last 2008 but they had to stop, because Hyun Joong accepted the role of Ji Hoo.

Kim Hyun Joong is really like the Ji Hoo character but less emotional. He's blunt, stoic, not emotional, childish, strange guy. He's a guy version of me, and that's why i like him. Hahaha. What more can i say??

I love this show. Its the only thing that makes me happy. I love it more than boys over flowers. :) But i wouldnt have discovered him if not for bof. So i still like bof. Haha. :P

this is my most publicized and most active website on cyberspace. :)

the things i write here were true to me at the moment they were written. they may no longer hold true tommorow, depending on how life changes me, and what new experiences teach me. i am a work in progress, and nothing i put out today is absolute.

believe or agree with what i say only if it resonates with your own truth. disagreement is also welcome, but malice is not. discussion and ideas are always welcome. feel free to be heard using my chatbox underneath.

Nobody forces you to visit this site and read what i have to say. i simply ask you to be responsible for whatever you put out on internet, and to be aware of negative energy you might dispense out into the world. so if what you have to say is purely for destructive purposes, you can take your opinion somewhere else.

Rock my World.
