Reality Check.

All right, I apologize straight up for the gender-bias inherent in this post, but this has been on my mind for a while. Have any of you, dear readers, seen the movie or read the book He's Just Not That Into You? Well, I had the pleasure of seeing this film when it was playing at Baker Center (hooray for thriftiness!) and some of it has just been weighing on my mind as of late. For those of you who are unaware of the book/movie franchise, let me sum it up for you in a few words:

If a guy really likes you, there's nothing that’s going to get in his way.

The moral? Women need to stop making excuses as to why a guy doesn't want a relationship (i.e. he's confused, afraid of commitment, etc.) and just accept when he's just not that into you. I'm floored. It makes so much sense, yet these are some incredibly disheartening facts to face. I'll make this brief, since I have some sociology studying calling my name, and list off some of the key signs that the book says warrants you to throw in the towel and face the cold, hard truth. Ready? Deep breaths. Here goes.

He's just not that into you if:
He's not asking you out
He's not calling you
He's not dating you
He only wants to see you when he's drunk
He's breaking up with you
He's disappeared on you
He's married (and other insane variations of being unavailable)
...the list goes on.

So, this is where you come in. Are these rules set in stone? Are we really all dating the same guy who will give us the same telltale signs that he's just not interested? To be honest, I have no clue. But I'm thinking this might be the wake up call that I needed recently. Leave me your thoughts, concerns, suggestions...I'd love to hear what you think about these (maybe not so new) insights into the male mind. Until next time, good luck on finals and have an amazing summer!

We're back!

Hey folks! It's Nadine here, sorry for the absence! Life has just been so hectic these days, but I promise, more bountiful blog days are ahead. Today's insight: podcasts are awesome!

Life's been good to me so far

Wow, I can't believe it's been two months since my last blog post. I hope that everyone has been well. Spring quarter has been beautiful, and for once this year I can actually say that it has not been too hectic. Since my last post, I have been to two concerts Nickelback and The Eagles.... both were a lot of fun! I am happy to report that I have a job this summer and one for next year. So...with all that being said I can basically summarize my life at this point with a famous Eagles song by Joe Walsh "Life's Been Good to me So Far".

In order to try to keep a focus on this blog post, I have decided to blog about an experience that I had this past weekend. This past weekend I traveled approximately 35 miles from my home to a Hare Krisha community that is located on the outskirts of Moundsville, WV. For those of you who have never heard of the Hare Krishnas, it is a religion that is similar to Hinduism and was founded by Prabhupapada in the early 1900's. The Hare Krishna community was started by a group of followers in the 1970's. The group of followers wanted to build a temple where Prabhupapada could relax during his journeys. What began as a simple sketch of a basic house on a piece of paper, transformed into a beautiful golden palace nestled in the hills of WV. Despite the wear and tear that the palace has endured from the past 30 years, the palace still withholds a beautiful majestic mystique that is sure to hypnotize anyone.

My experience at the Palace of Gold is something that I am sure I will always remember. It was like being in another country. For once in WV, I felt like I was the outside intruding on sacred land. I would advise anyone who is traveling through WV to stop at the Palace of Gold. The people who live in the New Vrindibian community (the name of the community where the followers reside) are extremely nice and welcome to visitors. Until my next blog post take care of yourself and others!!

Peace and Love :)
