The Un-edited Truth of Di


February 2017


I’m always grateful to visit other places and while this trip wasn’t my favorite, I’m thankful to see new things. It just would be nice to have taken a significant other.


Saturday morning 

Today I woke up to a shiny Saturday morning in Paris. It reminded me of a summer morning almost two years ago when I woke up to another shining Paris morning–next to the person I loved. It was the happiest and yet one of the saddest moments of my life as I realized that love doesn’t conquer all and that I would never have him. What we had was genuine and true but it wasn’t meant to be. I cried silently as I watched him sleep peacefully. And I wished that I had more time with him. But I was also happy for the time I had. It was a moment of sheer joy and deep pain simultaneously and I had never experienced that. And since that moment, I’ve never felt that way again. So here I am in Paris two years late on a sunny Saturday morning and I wish he was here. But it wasnt meant to be. 

Song in my head today 

Avant is one of my favorite artists. I like his voice and the fact that he sings genuine R&B. This song tells a story of man in love but of wrong timing. Story of my life so far. 

My intense personality 

This is me 

Post Valentine’s Day

I did better than I thought. I’m someone who loves love but it’s always escaped me. It would be nice to know what it feels like to have a valentine for the holiday but it’s never happened. I can live with being single but it’s tiring to have my own back all the time. I would love to know that there is someone there for me because they want to be and they genuinely care. It may be a stretch but I want to know what that feels like. Preferably sooner rather than later. 

The time of my life

There are rarely times when I actually love my life but these past two weeks have been the exception. I went to Europe on an 11 night cruise and it was an amazing experience. I visited Rome, Florence, Monaco, Malta, Valencia, and the Amalfi coast (to name a few). There’s nothing like traveling to different places and enjoying great food. I learned a lot and took hundreds of pictures. The only thing missing was a significant other but that’s normal for me. Definitely can’t wait to go to Europe again–in a week.
