We all prefer different things when it comes to choosing between two different things. Sure we do, but have you ever wondered why a person prefers what they picked? I was looking for something to write about while I waited for my best friend to come over and surprise me and I got this thought about writing a typical ’’30 things about me’’ blog but then I asked myself if I would like to read what someone else would choose between two things. No I wouldn’t actually, so I’ll write why choose different things.
I find drinking a cup of tea in the evening is more relaxing and something that keeps me awake, unlike coffee that makes me feel sleepy. I remember drinking a cup of coffee before a meeting and it ended up with a sleepyhead instead of a creative Matilde. Ever since then I only drink coffee in the evening if I’m going to a café with a friend or when I know that I can fall asleep afterwards.
If I have to choose between black coffee or cream and sugar, I would pick cream and sugar these days but I’m practicing to become a black coffee drinker and now you know one of my weird challenges in life right now. I still think that I won’t give up the cream and sugar, coffee has a better taste with cream or with at least sugar.
A few years ago I was talking to a friend who wanted to eat at a fast-food restaurant instead of a sit-down restaurant for dinner, I wanted to make her happy so we went to the fast-food one and I actually don’t like it that much. You feel too stressed when you go to a fast-food restaurant so I would rather go for dinner or lunch to a sit-down restaurant because you feel more relaxed and there is a chance to have a deep conversation but it’s also a good reason to have candle light Im that type of person who loves candle light, especially while I’m eating. Maybe this is why I prefer being more romantic than funny. People classify me as a boring classic/basic person but details like these make me feel more comfortable to open up to someone or just talk.
During summer I always prefer going on a picnic instead of candle lights at a restaurant. Unfortunately not everyone around me likes picnics. Why? I don’t know, everyone seems to like being more inside than outdoors and I’m totally a more outdoor person. I love nature and books more than a cold room and movies. So having picnics alone so I can read while I listen to music is so much better than staying at home watching movies.
If it weren’t for the norm of wearing shoes everyday and the bees at summer, you would see me walking barefoot. Believe me, it’s the best feeling in the world just walking around and feeling the ground you are walking on. Of course I wouldn’t do it during winter but if I could choose one weird superpower it would be to be able to walk barefoot without hurting my feet. But reality is rough, you know, so I keep chasing sneakers before heels, flip-flops and almost anything else.
A really good thing about chasing sneakers is that I can take long walks without feeling tired, walking is my thing whether it’s hot or cold. That’s something weird about me but walks make me
enjoy nature and it also inspires me. Most of my topics are thoughts I get on my way home or after taking a long walk with a friend. A sunset makes it always better because you feel calmer than when you walk when the sun rises, I don’t know that’s just how I feel.
When I feel really inspired I write down my thoughts but when I feel a bit vague I tend to draw. It’s hard to explain the feeling because drawing can inspire too but I like drawing my feelings is my way of showing that I either care, love, think about, hate, like or feel really excited about something/someone. So when I draw something thinking bout someone special I always try to give the drawing to the person, if I don’t do it it is because the person isn’t living in the same country as me or if they are dead.
Something that also can inspire me is roses, their soft, red color and their texture gives me lots of funny and romantic thoughts. When I look at roses somewhere I tend to write a poem or a letter afterwards. There is something about roses that catches my attention and I have always wanted to receive a bouquet of roses rather than a Christmas gift or a birthday present. Unfortunately I have never got one so I will buy a bouquet of roses once a month when I get my own house/apartment.
I will also make sure to make waffles with whipped cream for dinner once a week, cook spicy food for lunch and decorate my walls with the pictures of all my adventurous trips. I also want bookshelves with all the books I will have read from when I first started reading until the recent book I will be reading.
What I want you to know is that we all make different decisions and choose different things, but also that we all have different dreams, life goals and perspectives of what we call a life. I felt like I needed to write this text because I want to remember my dreams and keep them somewhere I can’t lose them and because I know my decisions will change on my way to adulthood but if there’s something I know won’t change is my will to fight for my dreams and to never stop until I reach them. This text is written because some of us would always answer with an ’’I don’t know’’ or ’’whatever works’’ and I want you to think, what would you choose? Do we have something in common or are we completely different people?
Or the most important, why would you choose that? Is it because of peer-pressure or because you actually would like to pick that?
