“I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily”

Jason Mraz-I Won’t Give Up

“I Won’t Give Up”

Hmmmm … Hmmmm … Hmmmm … Hmmm …When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not
And who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up
Still looking up.

I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

happy valentine’s day

Happy Valentine’s Day (+1 day)

Celebrating our first Valentine’s with a quaint dinner for two in the vicinity of my apartment’s little living room – just the two of us, not a peep from the world. We escaped the outside chaos, the chaos of lovers and friends. It was nice to just be able to relax and not be in a rush to a destination (driving and parking in the city can be a hair-pulling experience, the man friend and I have experienced it plenty a times when we were down on our luck).

Valentine’s Day Menu:

Texas Style Chili
Tea Punch
Brownies topped with Vanilla Bean Ice  Cream and Strawberry Puree

Monday February 13, 2012

The man friend and I went shopping for the ingredients that we would need for the Texas Style Chili and the Tea Punch – it was a lot of fun running around the supermarket looking for the ingredients we needed. Before our supermarket experience we ate L&L Hawaiian BBQ; I told anothercoldday and she said that the man friend was a bad boyfriend (since I was sick and that he should have brought me to eat something less oily). I told the man friend what anothercoldday had said, and the very second I told him, my eyes started watering because of my cold. I couldn’t stop crying because my sinus was clogged and so the man friend started comforting me saying that he was a bad boyfriend and he will be better (funniest moment at the supermarket, I am sure everyone thought we were fighting).

Here is the Texas Style Chili making process (the man friend did not document me chopping and cutting up ingredients, but I did help, I would like to say that he helped and I did most of the work):


1. The man friend doesn’t know how to use a knife to skin the tomato so he used a vegetable peeler (it took him about 10 minutes to skin, clean off the seed, and then dice up the tomato).
2. The man friend showing off the green chile pepper.
3. The man friend trying to dice the green chile pepper (after this photo, green chile pepper juice squirted into his eye because he doesn’t know how to properly dice, I had to take over the dicing of the green chile peppers).
4. No pictures of me dicing the onions, marinating the ground turkey, and cooking the food.
