A crush.


Having a crush is one of our original human impulses – it is the feeling of seeing in another person characteristics that compliment your being so well that you feel impelled to join their life with yours if even for only a little while. It is a strong, passionate longing for a partnership with a person that has something you don’t have and could never possess. It is a magnetic desire for an image of beauty fetched from youth. It is a flood of emotion so mentally overwhelming that it affects your physical being. Having a crush makes me feel young and alive. It takes me over in the most amazing way.


  1. Totally agree! It's one of the best feelings in the world!

    Did you move out of your "independence apartment" yet? How's the new living situation?

  2. I love the new name of your blog. Changes are healthy :0)

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
