Graduating –in progress

Finally, adviser confirmed, ‘according to him,’ I was indeed graduating. 

Not a shock as I thought it’d be, instead, it is as if a huge stone has been broken on my chest and now I have some breathing space. 

In other news, I have a story of what happened two nights ago. 

I parked my car and proceeded to walk over to the elevator (parked 6th floor) when a pretty little girl began speeding towards the elevator too. As she stood there, I noticed she seemed in a hurry or anxious, either way, she seemed out of time (lol flashback at the Timberlake movie ‘In time’). I decided to strike up a conversation as I was bored. I turned to her and said, “in a hurry?”  She turned, looked at her iphone and says, “…yeah I have class and will probably forget what floor i parked on…” She shrugged and I just laughed. I instantly remembered the time I forgot which floor I had parked on and walked in circles for 2hrs until I realizes it was in a different parking structure. I told her:

“yeah, I’ve felt the same. You should write it down, would you like a pen?” 

She kindly refused but still continued to converse. “At least it’s not raining.”

“I agree,” I agreed. Just then, for fun I pulled out some stickies (sticky notes) I had from the night before which I had found in the library. I then proceeded to write down, ‘don’t forget, 6th floor’ on three notes and handed her one. Instantly she started blushing and I was in a worse condition.

The elevator was here. I quickly pulled apart the remaining 2 notes, and stuck one on the elevator door as high as I could and the final one on the first floor. She giggled at this point and I laughed, “hey, you won’t forget this way, right? Now you can just worry about your classes.” 

I placed my headphones on and proceeded to walk towards class.

–Good deed done haha 


Defining the Hopeless Romantic by the internet


Taken from Urban Dictionary:

Hopeless Romantics are NOT Hopeless per-say, but very true, caring, and loving people. They are “NOT MADE FOR TODAYS STANDARDS”, sadly. They believe in passion, chivalry, and true love. They have loved sincerely at one point in their life, discovered what love feels like, and can’t understand why it was not returned in the same form. Hopeless Romantics are usually dreamers, idealists, and sincere, however what they expect in any relationship is a full return for their effort and caring, to be loved as much as they loved. What makes them “Hopeless” is the fact that they are few and far between in today’s daily life, and usually get let down in the long run, even though they gave all they had to give, money, love, time, housing, belongings. Hopeless Romantics give 100% ALL the time, and hope for the same in return.


–Pretty spot on in many points, no?

12/2/12 Dear Diary…

As my first post, I would like to apologize to all of those who have always asked about me. I don’t like to write about myself and tell you who I am. I prefer through interaction and direct physical contact get to know people.

Many of you fail at this as we are in a period of time where technology runs our lives, therefore, I’ve decided to half cope with this problem and allow you all a one way ticket into myself, as an individual who is loving and caring.

Yours truly,

Mark Artz
