Anonymous asked: how do u know rob?

I know plenty of Robs…

Long distance relationships get really really hard because of the lack of sex.

No fun intended. Uh. I meant pun.

Haha, hello there, stranger!

I didn’t even know you could get hickeys on the face. Damn it. How am I going to explain this to work?

PS you’re a brat. I should have kept you on time out.

Adventure time with babe (:
How sad it is that I won’t see you again til June ):

You shouldn’t have to tell anyone to leave your boyfriend / girlfriend alone, it’s their job to walk away. If they don’t, then you walk away.

Anonymous asked: Whoever said they could be a better boyfriend is delulu. You're bf is a great guy.

Haha, thanks! But how do you know he’s a great guy? Is he talking to you?? Reveal yourself!!! Haha jk. And we’re actually not each other’s boyfriends (yet).

my experiences with gay relationships.

When I had my first real relationship with a guy, it was damn hard. I don’t think any heterosexual or (forever alone) singles can quite fathom how difficult it is to be in an (openly) gay relationship.

I guess the word ‘openly’ can be used very loosely because I was far from open about this relationship. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to put gays on some kind of pedestal; a gay relationship is almost no different to a heterosexual one. We hold hands, we kiss, we love, we cry, and we laugh together just as any other humanly couple would.

But what makes it so damn hard?

You can’t fucking display it to the world. Okay. Fine. Maybe it’s an individual’s choice that they don’t want to display their affections to the whole world, but how about you try showing the world a side of you that you’ve tried to hide for so long?

Trust me, there is no shame like not being able to let the world know how happy you are. To have to be afraid to kiss your significant other at any given moment, to have to fear just holding them close… just because people could be uncomfortable. I mean, I was harsh enough to tell him things such as:

"We can’t go there, we might run into people I know"
"What am I even supposed to introduce you as…"
"We’re not dating/ coupley tonight [when there’s a kickback/ social]"

And so, I say this, unless you’re lucky enough to have your first gay relationship be your last/ only, then please remember two important things for your next relationship:

Be patient.
Be understanding.

When / if you find that you’re dating someone and you’re their first gay relationship, then be patient because it’s never easy to just express your emotions to people who never knew [about your sexuality before]. Be understanding for he/she is now as scared as you once were… so they’re probably going to do/ say something that will disappoint you [because you’re so sure of how you feel but they’re still scared to make sense of what they feel].

It’s going to be difficult because now you’re more experienced and feel you deserve to be happy and be able to show it… but can’t because they’re not ready. Just remember to be patient and as understanding as possible. Put yourself in their shoes, because not too long ago, you wore the very same shoes. And of course, talk it out with them, it helps a lot. It’s tough, but the payoff is so damn worth it.

I mean, what’s better than both of you being happy at the end of the day?

PS I’m sorry this post is so long. I just needed to get this out.

Anonymous asked: Which starter pokemon did you choose?

Fun fact: When I first got Pokemon Blue, my brother traded me all the starters so I technically got all three :D

BUT. I will always be Squirtle Squad by heart.

Anonymous asked: I could be a better boyfriend for you

That’s nice, but I’m not looking for someone that’s any better/ worse/ different to the person I already have. 

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

Spring Break (so far).

I know, I know, sorry for the photo spam. So far during spring break, I got to go to Davis, stay with bae for a bit, go to Pop the Dream, eat loads of food, play tennis, and put a huge dent in my wallet. After six hours of driving from Northridge, I can say it was well worth it!! 

I’m finally back home with family and I got to see the new baby [: I’ll post another blog after family time is done so I can have an excuse for more photo spams :D

And guess who just might be going to Davis again for the 100th annual Picnic Day? :D
