Crush isn’t Just Orange Soda

June 7, 2009

“That’s why they’re called crushes. If they were easy they’d be called something else.” — the dad on Sixteen Candles

I haven’t had a crush in a long time. Usually, if I like a guy I’m able to get him at least sort of interested in me. Plus, I’ve grown up a lot over the years and in doing so I’ve learned that it’s silly to sit around wanting something you can’t have. But, that being said., my current situation with Daniel could probably qualify as a crush — I certainly feel a bit crushed.

But, according to that pesky book crushed is a good place to start. The chapter today proposes that loss is important and good and that our cultural propensity to avoid it — or any other pain is immature and impossible. I’ve always at least acknowledged this idea.

If any of you remember talking to me after I was granted my dream job you might recall me being sort of sad that I no longer had the dream — even though I had realized it. Also, there are some good days or good events that you can only have after a bad one.

However, I don’t think I have ever completely internalized the idea tat loss is good. I guess we’ll see how far my homework takes me. I’m actually a bit behind in my homework. Each day has proven to be a lot to do in one normal day — let alone a day packed with overtime and social engagements.

Yes, I am falling behind. But I have the day off today, and tomorrow I might be able to catch up.
