i realize that i love stories about love. this would explain a predisposition towards anything written by milan kundera. in fact, i may very well be a complete sap for the concept itself. the part in plato's 'symposium' where aristophenes speaks up can well turn me into a giddy schoolgirl, kneesocks and all. i'm a jerk for romance. i have created romantic scenerios for no one in particular. i have occasionally been known to follow threw on such moments of fancy. these moments usually involve random dancing, sometimes even with the support of street musicians. i even hold a few grand little romantic schemes that i would share, but would like to imagine i will get to execute them on my own someday.

i am, however, terrible at actual love. i'm not particularly good at falling into it, not well equipped to be in it, and certain and painstakingly horrible at falling out of it. it does seem that i may be afraid of the one thing i may actually be any good at, if i could actually get around to doing it right just once. then again, it's likely that i'm hardly the first person to think of themselves like this and thus i should likely put down any good ideas in a little book and try to sell it off as one of those horrible little books that tell people all kinds of incredibly dull romantic ideas to do with their partner. this is an idea. not a very good idea, but an idea nonetheless. otherwise i could begin looking for someone who can accept all of my peculiar faults (requiring someone with immense patience) or someone who would not notice (requiring someone of exceptional obliviosity) or someone who would enjoy them (requiring a slight to moderate mental imbalance, which i may be able to handle. preferably this person would be non-violent and/or medicated and likes to share).

now, i was hoping to write something enlightening and personal. well, i'm not so sure i've succeeded in the latter and am fairly certain i've bombed in the former. that said, i'm going to go read my book and enjoy all the funny little parts about quirky love.

i've just read Symposium by Kundera and i found it insightful..especially his portrayal of the chief physician and how he masks his age..so true and even for me being 17 i can understand how he must feel
