Yo! So I think I might be on to something. Actually, I think people of the old world were on to something: Arranged marriage. Hear me out, so I've been talking to a lot of different people on this subject and I've really developed a soft spot for it. Let's review the facts:
Arranged marriage (also called prearranged marriage) is a marriage arranged by someone other than the couple getting wedded, curtailing or avoiding the process of courtship.
Fact: Dating sucks
Fact: At some point in a relationship you start to notice, accept, resent and ignore the idiosyncrasies of a person and you have to make a decision on whether or not you can live/deal with these issues. In dating, the answer is always a resounding, NO
Fact: Your parents are probably right about the person you should be with
Fact: You don't really know a person until you live together, but what's the purpose of living together unless you're married or on the fast track to getting married? There is no purpose.
So what this really comes down to is that if you bypass all the bullshit of dating and go straight to the living together and marriage, you won't have the opportunity to hate each other's small faults with the opportunity of breakup! And, you can stop the dating process immediately. And, AND you can be with someone your mom likes! Score. According to me, and lots of my closest people, there aren't many negatives to arranged marriages, except the whole not knowing the person at all and the initial jitters of sleeping with someone on the first date, and the first date being your wedding day. Don't hate on this idea, it just might be the hottest Sh#t on the scene tomorrow.*

Luminary: A person of prominence or brilliant achievement.
Who are the luminaries in my life? I don't think I have one! My mom I guess, she's pretty great. I feel like most of the people closest to me are working towards their luminance and not in their full fledged luminessence*. And where do I fit in in this? Can I consider my personal growth of luminate* proportions? Probably not. Not yet that is. However, with the discovery of this new word in my life I've taken a great liking to it and I will try to work towards its definition. Beyond this new gem of a word, I've also decided that we're alll soooo little in this world, that what we do day-to-day: our jobs, our responsibilities, our errands, our phone calls, our hobbies, our emergencies are really not much in the scheme of things. Let's try to be bigger than what we are! Let's reach beyond what we can see, towards only what we can imagine. With outreached arms anything can be let in. Something to think about...
See! I'm blogging more often, as promised. Yay!
*If it's not a word, it IS now. Don't correct me, I'm new
In life you should try to live with no rules. I take that back. You should try to live only by your OWN rules, well those and God's. Let me just get to the point. In matters of the heart, you should go with the flow and do what feels right. Why? Because it's easy, stress free and will probably allow you the most fun you'll ever have! Why put constraints on yourself: you can't do this! you should do that! It's pointless. Just do you! That being said, some people are just jerks and decide to live by a set of mean rules. This is not encouraged. Do onto others and whatnot, you know what that means ppl. You should be honest to yourself and others! Other than that...no rules. Where does this stem from? Experience. That and:
