So as I read all these blogs from guys about relationships and stuff I get pushed into doing one too. My laziness sometimes excedes me and I can't be bothered to do much. That's what it's like being an American. Lazy. It's all we know.
Aside from my sarcastic remarks I actually want to say some things that were brought to my attention. Well maybe not really, because if I haven't noticed that I am in an inter-cultural marriage then I really am stupid, but seriously...
Well I don't think about the cultural difference really and I don't notice (until this second) that I am the only caucasion person in this house. I might believe I am phillipino like the rest for the most part. Really! When I first came here everything was a blur and it was strange to hear this new language, Swedish, and on top of it, Tagalog. I almost felt alone, with the exception of my husband. He was the only person who I could speak my mind to and be 100% understood. Now however, I can speak to anyone and I don't even notice the Tagalog mostly. Their English has improved too..it's funny.
Sometimes I actually start to understand what they are talking about, partially because of some of the spanish words and very minimally because I have learned a few Tagalog words along the way. Not enough but good enough for a start. The family here is catholic as many pinoys are. The family values are held high. To the extreme really, something even 'P' will agree with me upon. he says this is the mob family. It quite possibly is true.
I see relationships as serious, but I take a lot of things lightly. Most of it due to my cultural upbringing and what I have been through in my life and the people I have surrounded myself with for 32 years. Crap I'm old!
I'm not saying I flip everything off, because now that I read that I can see how someone can take it that way. What I mean by that is that when you say something to me, I take it literally if you say you mean it that way, and I move on. I don't press because I don't feel there is a need if what you say is true. I want to move on. Sometimes that gets me in trouble..lol
However.. I was going to say something else and forgot....doesn't matter. It's late. uhmm... I've watched almost a whole season of 'The Bachelor' and it's time to go read Hairy's blog now.
Oh yeah the love thing and infatuation stuff I just read on Mogli's blog.... There is no love at first sight. You may look at someone and cream yourself literally..but thats not love honey...thats lust!
I think somewhere along the way I avoided saying what I thought about relationships. I didn't mean too, but I am going to bed and not about to start this blog over again..hehe
