Our first date

Since it’s Valentine’s Day today, I decided to blog about our first date. Something that happened over 3 1/2 years ago in Minneapolis.

We went walking around the city after he picked me up from my friends’ house. I remember the excitement, the thrill, because what i was about to experience was the best date of my life, with a man I am getting married to in less than 5 months. So to all of you who are still single – first date makes an everlasting impression.

We didn’t do anything special, went to the river front, passed by the library, and the building that changes colors. Took pictures by the river, it was too dark and all you can see are our faces and a thin string of lights in the background.

We walked through the skyline, and I was absolutely amazed at the beauty of the city from the “glass tubes” that I’ve never seen before.

We passed a street musician, who was playing the saxophone, something that my fiance can play as well, and we stood listening to his music for a while. There were sirens in the background, and it felt almost like a movie!

Then he took me home, 99 red balloons was playing on the radio.

The first date of a relationship of a lifetime!

Corrupting my world

I have noticed, that I started doing what I was always doing best – nothing! I also procrastinate, screw up my schedule & stay up till 2 or 3 am. I watch everything, there are so many shows out there, and I watch all of them. Correction, I watch the ones, that are either funny, or sad, or have something in common with my life.

The Big Bang Theory – my fiance is a geek, and he turned me into one, so I can relate to Penny & Leonard.

The Big C – my grandma has cancer, stage 4, that show is my emotional outlet, I cry when I watch it. No one understands, but Cathy!

The Millionaire Matchmaker – I learn constructive criticism.

Hellcats – speaks to my inner cheerleader.

The Office – everyone watches it, and I have driven through Scranton.

Keeping up with the Kardashians – They study Kim’s case in Harvard business school, I was accepted to an Ivy League school!

Modern Family – reminds me why I don’t want to have kids!

The Simpsons – I have a poster with the most famous quotes from there!

Family Guy – Love Mila Kunitz.

That 70’s Show – Donna (Laura Prepon) is partially Russian.

Sex & the City – Love Manhattan scenery, watch it to recognize places, and then yell out – I was there!

Cougar Town – Love Cortney Cox, esp. her hair!

Ancient Aliens – Have to watch something on History Channel, right?

Firefly – gotta watch a sci-fi show once in your life, even if it is during Passover in Florida with the people you don’t really like.

And a whole lot of other stuff!

 

Wondering

Have you ever felt like you are an actress? And they are filming your life? But they are not actually telling you that? Though you have random soundtracks running through your head as you walk down the street, or visualize the lighting of a certain scene? Anyways this is how I feel. And I have been feeling like this since I was 18.

I am no movie star, not even close. I am an ESL teacher. I drink coffee like an addict, I watch too much television, I am madly in love with my fiance & wedding planning is my favorite thing to do. I work from home, some of my students are famous, some are just influential, but they are all fun & nice people, that I will tell you more about as the time goes by.

I love yoga, Kate Potter is a real life saver for me. Not because yoga has drastically changed my life,  but because that woman came up with a work out thats doable & affordable.

I cook, I bake and I am 150% confident I am the best at it, so confident, that I want to open my own bake shop, or invest in one, but these are long term plans.

I love make-up, Twiggy is an inspiration, but by no means do I look like her, or even attempt to.

So in my opinion, these are all the good reasons for me to have my own show, but as for now, I am enjoying Being Erica, and so should you!
