I’m sure you’ve heard the predictions for 2012. One theorist says that the magnetic poles of the Earth will break loose and re-align, but now North will be South and South will be North. I haven’t done enough reading to know whether I believe this guy or not, but that’s not the point. The point is that magnetism doesn’t only exist on the land, but also between people.
It’s that tugging sensation you feel when you see someone you’ve (probably) known in a past life, and that really strange comfort you get when you’ve just met someone but somehow you can tell them everything. It’s the way two bodies can fit together, just so, tiny grains of sand clinging together on a foam-soaked beach.
And sometimes, when you find that magnetic someone you’re attracted to, you just can’t let them go. You’re stuck to them; you want to be around them every single minute of every single day. You want them inside your veins. Trust me, I know the feeling.
But I have news! You need to let your poles re-align, sometimes. You need to separate, to take breaks from each other, to remember which way is South and which way is North, to remember who you are and what you love to do. Recently the bf and I had a talk about this, how we were spending too much time together (pretty much all of our time). When we spoke, I didn’t really see a problem with it. After spending the last day and a half alone, however, I realize that there were so many things I wanted to get done but was putting off, like cleaning my room and writing new blog posts. Like listening to Xavier Rudd. Like reviewing Hungarian vocabulary.
And now that we’re re-aligned to ourselves, it’s time to come back together into position, and meet up again tonight and spend the night eating dinner, painting Warhammer models, and watching Weeds (good series. My recommendation of the week, along with Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. I’ve only watched the first four episodes, but it’s pretty kicking!). So remember, take time for yourself. Your other half will still be there after you’ve re-aligned.
As for whether or not the world will still be here after the poles align, well, who knows. *shrug*
