need to reevaluate somethings in my life. even though having exactly the same interests as one another makes life boring… there should be some things that i can just geek out over and have her just “get it.” I try hard to understand the stuff that she likes, but in a similar fashion theres stuff that she likes that I just can’t wrap my head around. sometimes i feel like my relationship is like having small talk with random strangers. i want someone who understands me and all my unique quirks and all my baggage, and i want to be that person for someone else.
i thought i grew out of the mindset that just because a girl is into the same music, tv shows, films, books, etc that we’ll get along just fine. but when you’re faced with the opposite, a girl who’s personality fits perfectly with yours, who puts up with your bullshit, and calls you out when you’re being stupid… yet you have little in common with each other when it comes to material things, well fuck i just dont know.
What i can stress is the fact that the music i like, the movies i watch, the random hobbies i get into are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to me. those things are my personality, and i’m sure thats a bad thing, but thats what it is. when i think of who i am i inevitably think about the things i like. its what makes me unique is my passion for an incredible song, my love of a well made film, and my curiousness in learning about new things. that is a huge part of who i am as a person, and it gets hard when the person you’re supposed to spend the rest of your life with doesn’t understand what’s so good about the things you like.
We knew when we asked Parts & Labor to choose a song for A.V. Undercover that the result would likely sound pretty different from the original, no matter wha…

I don’t believe in marriage.
Maybe that’s not true. But I am against it.

What do you believe in?
Cool baby mamas.
Its easier for her. She’s seen it work out. Sure, she saw the fights, the arguments, the yelling, but one thing she’s never seen is someone giving up. Her parents are still together.
I’ve known only giving up. Since the day I was born, I was raised by two different families. And when I was 15, I saw giving up happen again. It was different though, I saw the deterioration happen up close. I saw all the missed glances and heard all the whispered arguments. Its easy to notice how little time they began to spend with each other and it was easy to see how little they cared for each other.
Its not easy, its never easy. For some people, that option, to give up, is like a big red button they can press when things start to fall apart. One thing they don’t realize though, is the damage that is caused by that simple press of a button. And for others, that button doesn’t exist. They never get the chance to give up, because they just battle through anything that hits them; weather the storm, stiff upper lip, all that jazz that gets them through it.
The question that I have now is: what happens to a couple when one person’s life is infused with that inner desire to let go, to move on, to give up, and the other person is a warrior, who will hold on tight and figure out knew ways to attack this situation so that they wont have to ever say they give up… because for them there is no such thing.
