Because Hank and John Green are my new heroes. And I want a bunch of johns books for my birthday starting with tfios.
This got me thinking about my mother for some reason, since she thinks the most important thing in whoever you end up marrying is how strong their faith is and while, yes, that may be very important in my mind, it is undoubtedly not my number one thing. how can you be with someone who doesn’t have similar interests as you?
I know I could never be with anyone who doesn’t read books for fun. it is a huge part of my identity and although English is not my mother tongue, in fact it is the third language I have had to learn on my twenty years of being on planet earth and it is the only language I had to teach myself, I still love it and I plan on extending my vocabulary for the rest of my life and see, if whomever I end up with does not understand not only the importance in having similar interests but the undeniable need for liking the same things as your significant other than I’m sorry, but he and I cannot be eachothers ‘other half’.
So this is what I plan on keeping in the back of my mind. even though I do not plan on getting married anytime soon, like I said I’ve only just turned TWO DECADES OLD, I still think I need a better grasp on how I would go about finding someone and then how I’d go about figuring out if he is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. And this is the thing, I’m thinking WAY into the future because the current guy in my life wouldn’t even know what Nerdfighteria and he doesn’t even fully understand the jokes that I find funny (mostly puns, the occasional meme) and I look at him and think, all there is is physical attraction, there’s no point in even talking or engaging in conversations that could interest both of us because we either have not found topics that we mutually like or we simply have NOTHING IN COMMON. and BREATHE… What a rant. Until next time… :)
