Unleashing the inner kitten

 
 

It’s the last day of February and I made it (almost) everyday throughout NaBloPoMo February 2013! Now that I’ll be taking a momentary break from my marathon blog posting, are you guys prepared to accomplish something this March?

Prompt of the day: When do you feel your sexiest?

Let’s get downright dirty today :) It’s the last day of February’s NaBloPoMo challenge after all, themed love & sex – might as well let down your hair like it’s already springtime.

Feeling sexy is relative. For me, sexiness is a manifestation of inner confidence, and there are plenty instances when I feel that way.

I can’t choose the sexiest out of the many, but here’s a list of moments, in no particular order, when I do feel sexy:

♥ when I’m wearing a cute underwear

♥ whenever I dress cool and comfortable

♥ when I had an intense workout during the day

♥ when I’m doing the bridge pose

♥ just whenever I stretch

♥ when I actually make an effort to feel sexy, a.k.a. basic personal care, hygiene, and lots of shaving

♥ when I’m wearing my ponytail high

♥ … and pencil skirts

♥ when my clothes fit and I can breathe in it

♥ when I’m in my boyfriend’s shirt

♥ when I read Fifty Shades of Grey and picture the future sex life I’m going to have with my future husband

♥ when I get or give a full-body massage

♥ whenever my lips turn crimson after eating some spicy food (but not exactly when my nose sweats like a pig because of the spice)

♥ when I’m sleeping naked

♥ whenever I’ve accomplished something, (like making it through NaBloPoMo February 2013!), no matter how big or little the accomplishment is

HJ story: Love is …

 
bloghopping-01

Ever since I stumbled upon thxthxthx, I thought it’d be a great idea to share with you awesome blogs I’ve came across throughout the Web.

 

So this morning, I’m sharing an uber-cute blog that’s a lot similar to the drawings I illustrate about Stanley and me. The illustrator drew these pictures because he and his girlfriend were in a long-distance relationship – just like Stanley and I.

Look at all the chibi cuteness :):

 

… being with you.

Are these adorable or what?!

HJ Story reminds me of Stanley and I so much (especially the gift part and the stubborn part) that I feel the blog is bookmark-worthy to keep coming back for more inspiration. Even though the author/illustrator of the blog and I are presently in the same locations as our beaus, I think we owe it to our blog readers for keeping the long-distance romance alive up to this day, so thanks y’all :) (I finally had my first Valentine’s celebration ever! No more Skype miscomms and whatnot~)

 

Are you a fellow bloghopper? Have you stumbled upon an awesome blog recently?

All About You: How do you feel about love?

 
 
Today’s NaBloPoMo February 2013 post will be slightly different than the previous ones: It’s all about YOU.
 
NaBloPoMo_022013_465x287_LOVESEX
 
 

Prompt of the day: How do you feel about Valentine’s Day?

What I feel: It’s a day filled with moments to look back at how much we’ve grown and changed in our relationships. It’s also a day packed with opportunities to celebrate how great an impact our love has made in other people’s lives – especially the ones you love most (particularly your romantic interest).

Instead of me babbling how I feel about this special day, I invite you to speak your mind and challenge you with the question: How great is your love?

 

  • Men: Are you merely saying the L-O-V-E word or do you show little gestures everyday that say ‘I love you’?
  • Women: Do you still speak to your man the way you did and touch the way you touch him a year ago, three years ago, five years ago?
  • Both men and women: Have you always been there whenever your loved one needs you the most?
  • Singletons: Don’t think I forget you. Are you willing to give love a chance this year?

 

Type away your answers on the comments section below and let me know how you plan to spend your Valentine’s this evening.

I’m sure the lovebirds have got it all planned out for the night, but let’s take away the fancy dinners and roses aside for a second: How much do you really know love? Are you willing to be better for your loved one? And singletons … what are the qualities you admire in a person?

I love the moments we look in the wrong direction …

I love him for his wicked smile … his weirdness … his inhuman patience …

I just love it whenever we’re together – through thick and thin.


 
 

Have a superb Valentine’s day!

The first crush (or second) (maybe third)

 
 

February’s here and so is Monday! And this is my second post of NaBloPoMo February 2013 :)

 
NaBloPoMo_022013_465x287_LOVESEX
 
 
 

 Prompt of the day: Tell us about your first crush.

I can’t exactly remember which guy was the first out of the many crushes I’ve had (tee-hee), but let me share with you my adventure about how I came to like and unlike this one guy when I was about eleven or twelve.

Let’s call him Bill. I like Bill a lot because he’s so cool. And so tall. To many he’s not the most good-looking guy in school, but to me he’s so damn tall.

Bill plays soccer all the time. Before school, during breaks, after school. He’s actually smart but he’s always sleeping in class. I can’t recall how Bill got my number, but he texted me. Every text message I received from him, I’d save in my inbox. Every time something happened in class between us, I’d write it down in my diary. Heck, his name filled pages of my diary at least a million times.

I write in my diary of many things – horoscopes, personality tests, fun quizzes, and other miscellaneous stuff. I also established a certain exclusivity to my diary – only a number of people were allowed to read it.

One day, a friend wanted to read about an interesting information I mentioned about her sign, so I brought the diary to school. One thing led to another, and Bill got to read my diary.

After school, he texted me with sweeter words that made my cheeks flush like a lobster all night.

But in reality, he’s just another jerk who’s hit puberty earlier than most boys – that is, he was just a boy.

He had crushes with other girls. The kids at our school even ranked boys and girls into lists of “the most handsome” and “the prettiest.” Of course he chose other girls because I ranked only at number 4.

Later on, I found out from a friend that Bill dropped my name to a conversation he had with a friend outside our school: “You know Stacia?”

“Yes,” the friend replied.

“She likes me, man, like … a lot,” he laughed.

And that’s the end of my crush for Bill. He was just a little boy who loves to play.

Since then I’ve met more Bills than I can count. Some crushes last longer than others. One or two Bills will crush you for years, other Bills will turn to prince charming for one moment and back to Bill the next second.

I don’t really like these kind of boys. They’ve made many girls I know stop believing in true love. Their ego is bigger than their penises and their brains combined.

However, it’s precisely because of your first Bill that you can finally land on a date with your current boyfriend, someone who you did’t notice at first because you’ve gotten so busy at trying to be pretty enough, skinny enough, perfect enough for the mythical prince charming who everybody says comes to you with a white horse.

Sometimes it can just be a black horse. Or a white mouse. Or a really cute pig.

 
eheihi

 

Over time, the men you meet and interact with will eventually lead you to the one who thinks you are perfect just the way you are.

So girls – guard your heart. Don’t let little Billy crush your whole life. It may take a while to suck it up, but somewhere, somehow, your prince charming is going to rank you the first and make your cheeks flush not just for one night, but forever.

 
Men and boys, have you heard the answers from other women

The last time I said “I love you” was…

 
 

Hey everyone! This is my first post of NaBloPoMo February 2013!

 
NaBloPoMo_022013_465x287_LOVESEX
 
 

It’s midnight currently where I’m at in Jakarta, and I’m already feeling bad about my late post. But I’m so determined that I’ll make it through the month that I still want to make it happen today (technically it’s still February 1 in the States :) ). So here goes.

 
 

Prompt of the day: When was the last time you said “I love you”?

Just a little over an hour ago, when I said buh-bye to my love in front of the gate.

We had a simple date night out, and this is the first time he’s hit the gym in 2013!

 
20130201_210146
 
 

Fridays in Jakarta is officially a National Traffic-Jam Day, at least that’s what I call it. So we usually prefer finding simple pleasures around my neighborhood rather than sacrifice the risk of getting stuck in the car for hours.

Besides, he really needs to amp up his stamina. Even though none of us are training for any race in particular, maintaining health is equals to investing wealth.

Recently I’ve adopted a couple of bad habits, which he pointed out to me just before I said my buh-bye earlier. Now here’s the thing: There are a lot of ways people show you they love you. It’s not just a plain “I love you” to your face – it’s also about nagging you to strike a good posture, to sleep early and be an early bird, and many other things you probably don’t want to hear, but are actually good for you.

In the back of your head, you must be thinking, that sounds like my dad, or my mom. Yes, they nag you. They express their concerns. They give you gentle reminders to change your habits.

But that’s how they tell you they love you.

Now I don’t profess that I’m an expert at behavioral modification, but I think the way we can respond to these gestures is to change for our own good. That’s like saying to others that you love yourself and also another way of saying “I love you too” to the people who care for you.

Nevertheless, many nights when we part our ways, or just whenever I feel like Stanley doesn’t know how happy I am to be with him, without a second thought I’ll slip the three words out of my mouth, and in return he’d give me a giant smile.

 

So girls (and boys) – when was the last time you said the L-O-V-E word to someone special?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Muchaluva,
Stace.
