What is Romance?

To each person this is a different answer. Some people expect romance to be over the top, to some little things matter, and others don't believe it exists. Any girl raised among the Disney Princess movies would probably believe in romance and the wonder of its beauty (I know I do lol). Regardless though romance can be a wonderful and confusing thing.

1. a novel or other prose narrative depicting heroic or marvelous deeds, pageantry, romantic exploits, etc., usually in a historical or imaginary setting.
2. the colorful world, life, or conditions depicted in such tales.
3. a medieval narrative, originally one in verse and in some Romance dialect, treating of heroic, fantastic, or supernatural events, often in the form of allegory.
4. a baseless, made-up story, usually full of exaggeration or fanciful invention.
5. a romantic spirit, sentiment, emotion, or desire.
Its funny how even the definition says it's "made-up". I guess logically it doesn't make sense and to an academic it is just a silly piece of fiction...but what if that romantic spirit is more then that. It very well could be irrational yet it still exists because of a feeling. Romance and love go hand in hand, neither are really definable, though we all try and make our own definitions. They are apart of human nature and our need to connect to people.
Romance to me is simple and pure, its not the crazy big things. A boy can, and has, swept me off my feet by talking to me and telling me something personal. Opening up to me is huge as well as being a gentleman. Its not about gifts, dates, or anything huge...its the small kiss on the neck or forehead that shows that you care, the reminder that you have my back, the moments where he holds my hand or hugs me while he looks into my eyes. I can't speak for everyone, but to me that's romance, that's how I get caught up. It's such a funny thing, but so beautiful because in those moments I can soar beyond cloud nine and I never want to come down.
For logic's sake I am gonna try to keep my feet on the ground for a while...Here's Hoping!!!

Catching up and Getting Caught Up...

Catching up:
So its been sometime since I got on here last. I went on vacation to the most amazing place...wait for it....Wisconsin Dells...ok pretty ordinary but to a girl like me who doesn't get to travel, well ever, it was awesome. I really had a nice time and I love swimming so there was no down side...besides getting a boat load of bruises and getting a cut on my foot. I am really not complaining though cuz I would do it again in a heart beat. I loved just bonding with my sister for the first time in ever and swimming all day. We did play a round of miniature golf though which was really trippy being that it was black light and you wore 3D glasses. With that said, I can assume miniature golf and drugs not the best combination. I drove out of Wisconsin though toner, with a wine glass,and a shot glass. Cheers! LOL
My family and I spent the last days of vacation at home shopping. We basically picked up some left over school supplies/ clothes. I have to say though I found the cutest dress and am so glad I got it...best purchase to date :)
 I have basically compiled a list of things I have to do in the next week before I head back to school...there are so many things. I have taken care of some, but I have to pack, wash dishes, do laundry, and get my hair cut. It seems like "all the things"...lol...but it will all get done. I just have to take each day as it comes and not stress out, its not worth it. Most people are either back to school or about to head back so I am kinda alone for the next week, which makes me even more pumped to head back. Its kinda sad to see the summer end, I may not have been as adventurous as I wanted, but I think I truly grew and did things differently. All in all summer was good and one of the strongest I've had. There are some things I will miss...

Caught Up:
So....Disregard the last post about guys. I think I am caught up in a guy who I care very much about. I know just what I need right, lol. Its hard cuz there is no sense of security with this. I can't control it though. I'm falling for him and I think he knows it, but the timing isn't great. I guess I will have to have patience or move on...which seems unthinkable cuz I'm so caught up :-/
Here's Hoping!

Not All that Glitters is Gold

So I guess by the title you can figure out that maybe I haven't had the best couple of days. I did come to a realization about some things. I realize I don't know what I want right now and I have no business looking for something. Why should I go looking for a relationship when I don't even know that is what I need? I came to this realization in the worst way possible; I stood up someone on a date. Yes, I know how rude, but I got scared and freaked out. Then it hit me...maybe I am not ready for this, this whole relationship thing as much as I think I am. In my mind it was something I have been longing for and waiting for, but now that I started really looking around I feel like there is no one in my life right now worth my heart. What is the point of making due...besides the feeling lonely sometimes and all the benefits that come with a relationship...but besides that...lol. I just feel that someone has to be out there worth my heart, otherwise all the drama and pain I have had to deal with was for nothing. Its hard thinking that its gonna take time for this person to show up, but as much as I hate waiting I can't put myself through more heartache and drama for something that last for a minute. The glitter of a quick way out of loneliness is not worth the pain of being in one that fails miserably. I want more and I think I have finally realized I am worth more...with that being said if some guy comes by and he is cute....well there are loopholes, lol (I'm through with guys, they all tell lies, they break your heart and make you cry. Loving guys is such a sin.......ooh! check out that guy that just walked in! )
I just need to work on me some more before I attempt anything. Here’s Hoping!
