12 Couple Travelers Who Spark Joy To Your Traveling Plan With Your Partner

Happy Valentine’s Day, folks! 😀

If I usually spent Valentine’s day alone, being single and miserable, then this year it’s different. Well, technically I’m not single but then again I’d still spend my Valentine’s day alone since my boyfriend is in Singapore.

But then again, let me throw some mushy stuff to you in case you feel miserable just because you’re far away from your partner on this Valentine’s day: 14 February doesn’t really matter when you’re with the right partner. Why? Because you don’t need a special day to celebrate love. You could always celebrate love everyday. Or hate, for that matter. 😛

I mean, we agree that as much as you love your partner, there is some stuff about them that makes you want to rip their neck sometimes.

Anyway, since I’ve just jumped into the bandwagon to plan out a vacation with my boyfriend… I’m checking out some other couple travelers to get some inspo about traveling with my partner. And I decided to list the 12 of my favorites on the day of love. Yeay!

My Hope for 2019

It’s only a few days to 2019, can you freaking believe it?

It feels like it was yesterday that I graduated from college in 2011. And it’s been pudding 8 years ever since. And no, you didn’t read it wrong. I’ve changed f*cking to pudding for decoration. 😛

You’ve probably read my post on some things that I’ve learned in 2018 already. Well, normally I’d post some kind of resolution that I would never accomplish later at the end of the year. But I think not this time.

I think I’ll speak broadly about what I hope for next year, because honestly… As I’m turning 30 next year, I think I’m old enough to eventually understand that resolution is somewhat just an illusion. At least most times of my life when I had one. #failed

Some Life Lesson That I’ve Learned in 2018

Time flies so fast that the next thing I know, it’s already December!

I started my 2018 with grief as Disco, my 12-year-old cat, had to go back and forth to the vet due to tuberculosis. He didn’t make it to my 29th birthday as he died on the 24th of January this year.

This year has been up and down, that’s for sure. The first few months in this year was quite challenging for me, with me quitting my office job last year with no sign of constant income whatever. Externally, with me getting older, my peers would expect me to have the life as everyone else: create my own family.

What You Need to Remember When Your Dad Finds Love Again After Your Mom Passed Away

Recently, my cousin got a trouble coping with the fact that her dad is getting married again, a few years after my aunt passed away.

I’ve never been in her shoes, but then again it seems to me that her other siblings could handle it better. They’re more understanding with the idea of their dad getting married. After all, we’re all adults and theoretically speaking, it seems easier to understand the reason for what our parents do these days.

So if you’re like my cousin, who finds it hard to accept the idea of how there will be another ‘woman’ that is not your mom around the house you grew up in, maybe you need to remember some things before rejecting the idea of what makes your dad happy.

5 Deal Breakers When We Talk (Despite The Fact That We’re Not Exactly In A Relationship)

So, after a few months thinking that I got my OKCupid account blocked, it turned out I just forgot the e-mail address that I used for the account. Silly me, I know… But now that I found out, I recently get active on the dating site. Again.

Same old, same old. Somebody, please rescue me from this shenanigan! *lol*

But anyway, as I wrote on my profile there, I’m at that point where I’m getting tired of being alone but darn it, I just don’t seem to be able to handle anyone along the way. It’s complicated.

From being a serial dater myself, I decided to write 5 deal breakers when I start to talk with someone, despite the fact that we’re not (yet) in a relationship. I’m writing this, in a hope that my future better half would eventually read it and reflect.

Yeah, good luck with that. 😛
