8 Strangely Adorable Things Guys Do

goodnesssssssss 😀

Thought Catalog

1. Sometimes, they zone out while staring at you so that they don’t quite realize that they’re doing it. It is indescribably endearing when they notice that you’ve caught them like this — slack-jawed, eyes glazed — and they quickly look elsewhere, just the teeniest bit flustered.

2. In the morning, when they haven’t quite woken up, they might groggily reach out and pull you towards them. Or kiss your hair. Or rub your shoulders. Or keep your feet warm with their fleshy, slightly sweaty toes. What most guys don’t realize is that learning how to execute a proper morning cuddle is key to making most people fall deeply for them. Cuddle frustration is a #real struggle.

3. It is 2014, and brunch is hot. What’s even hotter is when your dude-friend, gentleman caller, bed yoga partner, etc. has strong opinions about brunch. This means he knows where you can get…

10 Signs You’re Secretly An Introvert

Thought Catalog


1. You are capable of being bubbly, outgoing, and even effusively warm, but doing so completely exhausts you. You feel as though you have to switch on that side of your personality.

2. You prefer intimate social gatherings to large parties — which, frankly, often stress you out. There are so many people! And you have to make small talk with at least two-thirds of them!

3. Whenever you do end up attending large parties (which, if you’re in college, is a #thing), you don’t mind standing in a corner or sitting on a couch and observing the world around you. When you see someone heading towards you, conversation starters in mind, you just think, “Drat.”

4. Sometimes, you hide right before you’re about to run into someone. Okay, well, not literally hide. If, say, you see them walking in your direction, you might pull out your phone and pretend…

Reflection from reading

Today before my bath I decided to squeeze in some reading from a great book received from a great friend- The Secret Letters of the Monk ho Sold His Ferrari. I haven’t gotten very far but it is definitely a great read so far. There is this sentence that really took an impression on me and I decided to record it down before i forget ” Life itself is a journey after all, and what matters most is not what you are getting, but who you are becoming.”
This quote really stood out to me because its something that we often neglect, that is, the things we need in life after being stripped of all the standards society has created should essentially be basic things like water, food, family, love and a home and beyond that what we should be aiming for isn’t what we can receive but what we can give back to others and the kind of person we are shaping ourselves into. REMEMBER THAT HSUAN! 🙂

A clean slate

Its the magical time of the year where you get to throw the past way behind and start anew- with a clean slate! Although I often feel like this is a choice and definitely a state of mind which we should realize that we have access to at any point of our life, to start new and with a clean slate! But somehow this point of the year is when people realize that we can flip the page over to a new canvas, and fill it in with new memories. And let me tell you, i feel absolutely amazing about this year, i have a great feeling like this year is going to be a great one. It’s a feelings in the pits of my stomach, its a inner warmth that comes from within, its hope that triumphs fear and I cant be happier! I often reflect upon my current state in life and ask myself are the fears in my life really worth stressing over? and usually its the strength of a great foundation that gets me through the bad times, my great foundation refers to a great family and support system. And usually with that in mind i think my fear of failure only ever comes off as a temporary state of mind, easy to overcome! 


To start off 2014 I would like to do more than say more, to bring actions into words. Lets start with the never ending list of my new years resolution, I am proud to say i finally ticked off the first one, to do mornings runs, and although i haven’t done it as often as i would like to i definitely did start off 2014 with my run to Gas works which felt extremely rewarding! ( sore thighs= good sign) And obviously, my personal favourite, to get over a certain someone and find someone even better! Also, being able to embrace my personal qualities and appreciate myself a bit more. Its absolutely true when they say to love others you must love yourself first. And lastly, I want to accept failure with a much open heart. I hear from Mandela that the best of the qualities and the best life to live is not the one with no failure but the one with courage to rise again every time we fall. I hope i can do that. Before I finish this post I would like to leave you guys with a quote i adore: 

“I must learn to love the fool in me-the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility and dignity but for my fool.” – Theodore Isaac Rubin


Happy new years peep!

21 Things To Look For In The Person You Marry


Thought Catalog

1. The kind of inside jokes that make you crack up just by looking at each other, and that you think of while you’re alone (and which make you laugh like an insane person in line at the grocery store).

2. Respect for your family when they come to meet them, even if they’re not best friends right away or wouldn’t choose to hang out with them. They should come into your life with an open heart.

3. The ability to make your friends laugh.

4. At least one hobby or interest that they are passionate about, that you don’t have to be present for. Drinking does not count.

5. Respect for your interests and hobbies, even if they’re not personally into them.

6. Good finances. They don’t have to be rich, they just can’t be incredibly irresponsible with credit cards and hiding their debt…

This Is How You Almost Date Someone

This is incredibly personal but i’ve never felt this relatable in awhile.

Thought Catalog

We existed in the strange in-between of the possible and the probable. It was in the unsaid, in the expected, in the logical next steps. Our friends accepted it, anticipated it, shook their heads and said, “It’s only a matter of time.” They’d ask sly questions and accuse us outright, and all we ever managed were shy smiles and hopeful maybes. We were almost dating. We almost dated.

But almost doesn’t count for much. Almost doesn’t bridge the gap from “not quite” to “yes.”

When you almost date someone, it’s not because you’re only doing things by halves. Everything depends on the build and the anticipation in that gray area of maybe. You do not keep your secrets from them, do not laugh at half the volume, do not kiss them with only half the intensity. Maybe you’re shy about how you feel. Maybe you hold back there, but that’s…
