In a couple of months I will be celebrating my 20th birthday on being 30 years old. I must be excited because I am already writing about it. Or am I really excited or just anxious about this uncertain point in one’s life? A lot of people embrace it others are unenthusiastic while some are simply numb.
What is alarming about my about-to-celebrate birthday the fiftieth time is that I am still single, lone, solo, free and unattached (do I really have to accentuate this much? Hahaha!). People can say that in the aspect of finding and attracting a life partner I may be the living proof that The Secret revealed by Rhonda Byrne in her book regarding the law of attraction is nothing but a futile idea and an unsuccessful suggestion.
I have done all Rhonda Byrne has opined. I slept in only one side of my bed which at times I find myself waking up on the floor because I unconsciously fell while sleeping at some point in the middle of the night. I prepare food good for two servings which only resulted to my having to purchase larger sized clothing. I allotted a space in my dresser which caused me to buy and install further dressers so as to have more space for my retail therapy. I even bought and installed two cute robot toothbrush hangers inside my bathroom!

Despite this unsuccessful approaches and years may have passed, I would still like to believe in Rhonda Byrne when she say, “There is no such thing as a hopeless situation. Every single circumstance of your life can change”.
I really hope and wish that Rhonda Byrne would prove me wrong. According to her, thoughts become things. But I really wish that in this coming November thoughts would finally become a person. Keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed!
The music of Tegan and Sara has accompanied me for a significant amount of time during exhausting hours of workout in the gym. This duo’s music is in my playlist blasting through my earpiece when I’m cursing the treadmill or gagging on some heavy weights.
Let me then show a little piece of gratitude by featuring their latest tune entitled Boyfriend from their upcoming album Love You To Death.
I particularly loved the gender twist in the lyrics as well as the dance-y 80’s-like vibe and groove of the tune. The supreme catchiness of the tune is super fun! This will definitely be an awesome add-on in my gym music playlist.
It’s eight in the evening on a Thursday. I am (again) alone with no intentions of doing anything except think of the last couple of decades. Yeah, in the last couple of decades, I did not seem to have encountered the right timing for me to meet my supposed correct and destined significant other.
It may have been a lifetime, but this will not discourage me from constantly praying and hoping that the right one, in God’s beautiful time will simply arrive. And yes I guess, when it comes to love — same as when buying ice cream — some actually prefer to wait in line even if they can get the same thing from another store without queuing.
But waiting and working on this for the last couple of years seem to become quite more of a difficult task. Each time I got to meet someone, work on a possible connection and ends up with nothing was like playing Super Mario Brothers all over again. I was like the Mario (of the Nintendo arcade game) jumping on top of Koopa Troopas, breaking bricks and climbing flag poles, crawling through sewages and kicking Goombas only to be told at the end gate of the Mushroom Kingdom that the person I am looking for is in another castle.
And yet, may I already be on the latest Super Mario Galaxy Deluxe version or not in the stage of my life, I will not stop playing. I will never stop wishing, I will never cease finding and I will never tire hoping until I meet that partner who is meant for me at the ultimate and final gate of the Mushroom Kingdom.
And when I got to meet that person at the final gate of the last Mushroom Kingdom I will definitely gonna sing this song…
