As the saying goes, no matter how far we’ve gone in life, there’s always a time where we’ll need to go back to our roots and remember how things began, in order to truly appreciate what we have today.
I’m not gonna go as far back to the day that I was born or conceived (I wish I knew that one, but then again..), but to the period of time where Dahbriukay and I got to know each other better. Oh, no. I can’t remember every single detail, but thanks to the way we communicate, not much of the details were lost. :D
Our communication with each other were based solely on emails. No msn, no facebook, no friendster (we got around doing that a few months later). So the only way that we get to know each other better is through emails and we can’t really snoop each other on facebook or friendster, since we both have limited access profiles. (Yeah, I tried snooping on Fb. And I’m betting every penny that I have, he did the same.)
So really, there wasn’t any of those roughly-summed-up-perception of each other through facebook snooping. You might be wondering why we never add each other on facebook or msn the way normal people do (well actually I do that too, and very often!) but somehow, with Dahbriukay, I thought, just to make things interesting (and also exciting), why don’t I try resisting the impulse to initiate and intervene and let life takes it own course?
Okay. I know.
Life doesn’t take its own course. One way or another our action or inaction will have an impact on the outcome. So this time around, I’d decided to take the backseat.
And since there’s this thing about delayed gratification and higher success rates/better outcomes in life, why not.
An example of delayed gratification leads to greater outcome:
It’s kind of interesting to note how things had unfolded from a simple 5 lined email to the long and very detailed one. It’s like reading a good blog entry, just that the blog entries are private and were written and read by only two person. In other words, my grandma would call those long and lengthy emails ♥Love Letters ♥
And no. There’s no I love you and stuffs like that in our emails, until much, much, much, much, much, much later (delayed gratifications, remember?)
Now let me present you some quotable quotes from his emails…
Monday, 14 Jul, 2008 11: 58 PM I would coil around and around you till you bend my way :P Tuesday, 22 Jul, 2008 10: 23 PM I'm evil, and then I'm wicked, but inside I'm a misunderstood angel.. O:-) Tuesday, 22 Sep, 2009 12: 47 AM Be careful what you ask for. .. because you might actually get it ;)
..and one of the many emails.
No, Dahbiurkay doesn’t know I’m posting all these up, and yeah, he might actually change my domain to yummyuncensored.com to get back at me if he sees this.
Which he actually might!!
