Ok so I am going to add a new category to the blog today; Dreams. My dream memory is usually in bits and pieces but they are also usually vivid enough that the parts I do remember are awesome. I want to start off by saying I love dreams. Good or bad I find all dreams fascinating. To me a dream is like watching or living in a virtual movie where I am the main character and no matter what happens in the dream I wake up, well at least so far anyway.
Ok so for last nights dream I do not remember a whole lot but what I do remember was pretty intense. I was in a field with my boyfriend and we were running away from something. I am not sure if what we were running from was people or if it was more sinister but either way we felt our lives were in danger. We felt so much so that our lives were in danger that we decided that the best idea would be for us to take our own lives. It just so happened that I had a hand gun on me (like usual ….NOT) So my boyfriend did not want to kill himself and I also wanted to be the one to do the shooting because I was scared that he would freak out or chicken out after and then I would be the only one dead; so not fare.
So I did the shooting. I laid up right beside him facing him and shot him right in the stomach he passed away slowly but with little pain so that was good. Ok now my turn, since shooting him in the stomach looked rather painless I thought I would do the same. 3 2 1 boom right in the stomach I laid there waiting to die but nothing so I shot myself in the chest and still nothing, so chest again and then stomach. After all the shooting I took it that I was not meant to die and got up and left. I did feel guilty that I had killed my bf but what can I do when fate intervenes lol. So anyway I am heading home and who do I run in to but my boyfriend and let me tell you he is pissed that I killed him. The dream ended there though. So yeah that is my dream from last night.
I really think that something major just happened on the planet yesterday. I know you are going to laugh but it was caused by the Tumblr Post about the Dress. I am sure by now, unless you are living under a rock, you know exactly the dress I am referring too. For those of you who missed out The following picture of a dress was posted to Tumblr and went mega viral over night. The reason the dress went so viral is because so many people disagreed on what they saw in the picture. Some people (the right people) saw the dress as some shade of Blue with either a black or brown lace stripe on it. Now somehow(don’t ask me how) the majority of people actually saw the dress as White and Gold.
Now this is what I think has happened and will continue to happen in the aftermath of all of this nonsense. The dress will actually cause people to question the reality that they are living in. If I could say with out a doubt that the dress was one colour, yet the person right beside me saw something completely different, what else do I believe to be true that is in fact not true.
Is what I think blue is actually blue at all? What about taste do the strawberries I eat taste the same to you as they do to me? Maybe that is why we can love a food yet other people hate the taste of that very same food. It might not even stop there take religion for example you might believe with all your heart and soul that your religion is true and that what you have been taught is the TRUTH. Somehow though the guy living next to you believes with out a doubt that the religion he believes in is the truth and that you are wrong about what you believe to be true . How can the two of you both know what you believe is the Truth? Maybe because both of you are in fact right? or maybe you are actually both wrong.
I am not sure we will ever really know for sure. What we can take from this and should learn from this is that we all persevere the world in a sometimes very different way. So maybe we should not get so upset when someone believes something different from what we believe to be true. Maybe the Blue/White Dress can in the end bring us all closer together.
I need a little advice from you.
My boyfriend and I have been living together for just over 2 years now. His parents just let him know that they will be coming to visit, from China, in early summer for 2 months. He came out to his parents just before we moved in together. I have assumed this whole time that they knew we were living together but it turns out they do not know. He has sort of suggested that I could move out for two months while they visit so that it is easier on his parents and well in turn easier on his own emotions. I feel like I am stuck in a really difficult situation. Part of me wants to say sure honey I will find somewhere to stay for a few month, but the other part is saying, No I am staying wet have built a life together and it is time you man up and tell your parents that we live together. I mean we have spent the last year renovating a home together we have adopted a cat and a dog together we have built a pretty kick ass life with each other.
If I were a person of the opposite sex that his parents did not like would I be asked to leave? No probably not there are a ton of couples whose partners parents do not like their son or daughters partners. Some how they all learn to at least tolerate each other.
I do understand though that their is a major difference between Chinese and Canadian culture when it comes to Same Sex relationships.
So I guess you have enough to go on from me. Do what do you think I should do. Should I leave for the two months or should I stay?
