We All Show We Care Differently

Some people feel that showing you care about someone is about sending birthday and holiday cards but to me, that’s just not something that matters to me. If I’m really close to someone and I’m moved to I’ll send a birthday card of some kind I might do that if I remember to but I prefer to send random cards just to tell someone I miss them and care about them.

I try to acknowledge birthdays and holidays but for me, the random moments mean so much more to me. Someone checking in on you just to say hi for no reason by text or in a message or someone saying “hey, let’s meet for coffee and catch up.” Don’t get me wrong, cards and well wishes are sweet but they are what everyone does because that’s what everyone is supposed to do; I care about people showing up and giving a shit when there is absolutely no reason to.

My husband and I don’t put a lot of effort into each others’ birthdays or anniversaries, we’re more about leaving love notes and finding something one day for the other person just because you know it would make them happy. The Hallmark holidays just don’t mean to me what they used to, the little moments that come out of nowhere mean so much more.

Making time for each other, that’s what is really important in my life. If you can’t make time for someone in your life why would you care about cards and holidays? If I forget your birthday it doesn’t mean I don’t care because I often forget people’s birthdays and I never care when people forget my birthday. In the grand scheme of things is a birthday really something to get bent out of shape about? Is it really worth getting into a fight about? I don’t know, it isn’t in my world but if some random Tuesday you want to send me a card, that would be lovely.


All On Board

My little shipper heart is sailing because of last night’s New Girl and The Mindy Project. I’ve loved both of the main love interests since the beginning, long before there was any acknowledged love between any of them. I can smell tv chemistry a mile away, it’s a gift.

Nick & Jess had undeniable chemistry from day one and you missed it, you weren’t paying attention. They were roommates, then they were friends, then there was this awkwardness between them and now, they are officially a couple.


We’ll never forget that kiss. I think most viewers just sat there with their jaw on the floor. Boys, that’s how you kiss a girl, take note.


Danny & Mindy were more of a subtle chemistry but still completely palatable if you ask me, I think it was a little less obvious because Mindy Kaling was trying to really focus the viewers on getting to know Mindy and the other characters as much as possible.

She didn’t KISS him!!!!

The Moment

Both shows are written so well and are so much fun that you don’t obsess every moment over these couples getting together, you enjoy the journey of everyone on the show including the 2 people that are clearly meant to be together forever. Then every once and a while you get a little taste of that couple and all is right with the world. Now, alas, I must wait until next season…
