7 things girls with boyfriends don’t have time for

Me and the boyfriend with the Forbidden Island behind us

So I think I could call myself a relationship expert if I would care even a little bit about stupid titles like that, but it is a fact that me and my boyfriend have been together for more than five years now. We live together and therefore accepted a lot of things about each other and set up priorities about our life together. Here are some things that didn’t make that list:

1. Eat at the table

I already made food and contained myself from eating it while cooking it, so don’t expect me to sit like we’re in a restaurant and have an hour to slowly nibble on it. Let’s be honest, all we really want is curl up on the couch and catch up on The Big Bang Theory or watch some old Futurama.

2. Shave legs regularly

I’m a human being with hair in all kinds of parts of my body. This may sound gross, but hey, everybody is like this you guys. Unless you had laser hair removal or you are some kind hairless being and you are the next step in evolution to a hairless kinda freaky, kinda awesome creature, you are going to have body hair. Accept it and move along.

I don’t have time to shave it regularly, so you get used to a little winter time leg hair.

3. Do my hair / full make up

If we’re hanging out at home all day, don’t expect me to curl it. Or style it. Or comb it. Or fuck, even wash it. Because you know what, it is actually good for your hair to not wash it like 4 times a week. Make up is the same.

4. Do my / our bed

Like seriously, I’m not trying to impress you with my nicely done bed, especially if you sleep right next to me every night in that bed. Making the bed is a waste of time. We’re just gone mess it all up later in the day, if you know what I mean.

5. Act like I care about all your videogames

Don’t get me wrong, I really do like some of them. I also do play some of them with you, you know that. I could listen to the stories of any Fallout game for hours. But listening to the moves you did in Super Street Fighter just won’t take us anywhere at all. I don’t see the point. Oh, and please don’t show me the recordings of your matches. I’d rather use that time to make out on our undone bed.

6. Get dressed

I don’t see the point of putting myself into uncomfortable clothes when I’m at home. If you love me, I assume you want me to be comfortable. So sweatpants it is. Or even better, sometimes it’s just no pants. We all know you love no pants days.

7. Wash off my face mask

Now, I do want to be pretty, so I use face masks. I just mix up something from the things I find at home, like bananas and lemon, yogurt and honey, whatever. But while I’m wearing it and browsing the internet or – true story – write a blog post, I often forget to wash it off. Oh well, it really shouldn’t hurt that instead of 20 minutes, my mask was on for 45 maybe? I guess I should have checked the time when I actually put it on. Then you don’t have to walk in on me, sitting in front the computer with the nice white glow of the monitor being reflected off of my home made egg yolk face mask. Please don’t scream next time.

 

And now, because I don’t want everybody to think that I am some sorta disgusting savage, here are seven things that girls in relationships do have time for:

 

1. Cook you a homemade dinner. And breakfast. And lunch.

Because I love you.

2. Bake cookies and cakes

Because we love cookies.

3. Check your weird mole

Because melanoma is no joke.

4. Do laundry for you

Because I like when we have clean clothes.

5. Take showers with you

Because we both want you to smell nice. Also it’s good foreplay.

6. Take care of you when you’re sick

I guess no explanation needed here.

7. Tell you I love you

All day, every day.

Anger

Following up on my last post, here is a compilation of my favourite songs that help me embrace and get over anger.

As I wrote it last time, I was a rebelling teenager, who, of course, could not find understanding in my parents. I know better now, but then I was just… stupid maybe. I got into fights with my mother over the usual, where were I, what did I do, etc. But this wasn’t the only source of anger in me. I started to see the world different. My parents, teachers, mostly everyone seemed lame and clueless. Their actions and reactions on life seemed robotic, or sheepish. The life they promised when I was kid shattered day by day. I still feel like this sometimes, I’m just starting to see the beauty in this cluelessness.

I really like Korn and Slipknot, and listened to every single song made by them for long years. Everybody, who wasn’t familiar with this kind of music said that it was angry music. But I disagree. Not all of them are angry. I wouldn’t listen to all of them individually, if they were the same. They each have a different emotion for me. And they’re not like ,,this is only angry, this is only frustration, etc”, it’s the beautiful mixes of emotions I can embrace in an awesome musical interpretation.

People often think, music makes teenagers angry. I don’t think it’s true. People act different, when they’re angry. Some weird people hit things, I mean, that is just plain stupid to me. Some yell, some cry. I remember being angry at the whole world. Being angry because I existed. And than I went to my room and listened to my music. Didn’t hit anything. Didn’t crack and yell it all out on some poor soul next to me, who probably didn’t deserve it. Just listened to my songs. Because knowing, that somebody else knows what you are feeling is freeing.

I mean, look at Slipknot. They never heard of me ever, they don’t even know I exist. But they know what I fell. They sing about it. They found each other, and became a band. They made a career out of the feelings that make me want to get out of this world. They are therapy to me.

You will find, that most of the metalheads don’t hate everybody. They don’t hurt anybody. They’re actually really nice, I have lots of friends from this time of my life, and they’re quite charming actually. Yes, they have a side of them, that enjoy some screaming and toughness in music. And to me, this means that I can talk with them about things that other people don’t find comfortable talking about. And those taboos are weird for me. Weirder than black clothing and strong make up and masks and metal studs.

What do you do, when you are angry? Do you have any angry music? Please leave your thoughts in the comments, I really look forward for them.
