The Scenario was created to paint the picture of a particular setting where familiar events are likely to occur in our everyday lives. People become so busy with reality that it’s hard to take a step back and simply fantasize something. We are often distracted with so many things that society surrounds us with, but what about just focusing on what’s in front of you?

I Think I’m In Love

February 14, 6:09 PM

Its crazy that I’m even doing all of this. Cooking, cleaning, laughing for no reason, or even caring about what day it is. I can’t even remember the last time I did something like this for someone. On second thought, I don’t think that I actually ever have. This isn’t really me. And I’m okay with that. Has this been me all along and I’ve been running away from my biggest fear? Have I always been this nice? Well, I know that I’ve always wanted to be, even if I have failed miserably in the past. Before I met her, I knew that I wanted to be the type of man who was relentless in going after what want. Sometimes, that can be a gift and a curse. Now that we’re together, she has taught me that its all about the “how” and never about the “what”. I’m so thankful for her because of that. Imagine what this special day would be if it were left up for me to decide what the standards were. We would just go to one of my favorite burger joints in town, go to a basketball game, and call it day. But what I’ve learned recently is that it’s not ALL about me. This, US, this thing that we have between her and I, is about each other. I’ve never even prepared a meal before, yet somehow I did it today. Its not really even about the meal though. All I knew was that I wanted to make her happy. I don’t have much money right now, but damn am I glad that I have her. She not only accepts me for who I am, but she has helped me grow in many ways that she may not realize into the person that I am today. A year ago, I was drinking everyday with no job, a scarred mask that I didn’t want to remove. Now, I’m doing everything that I can to show that I care about her, us, and most importantly myself. I don’t really know what to say at this point. She’s almost home and I’ve been smiling all day thinking about it. I’ve never been so happy to make someone else happy. I don’t know why I feel like this, but it reminds me of a mother waiting for her child to run to the Christmas tree on a Saturday morning; the joy is effortless and the presence is always appreciated. There is no other feeling like that in the world. I finally know what love is. I can’t wait until she gets home. Happy Valentine’s Day.
