Alex Appreciation Post

Helen's thoughts

On Wednesday I hung out with Alex almost all day. Wednesday is our hang-out-lots day. I was sick and acted rather grumpy that day, and I'm just amazed by how loving Alex is towards me. He's so understanding, even when I don't understand myself.
Mario Kart is srs fuckin' bznz, mang
That day we played Mario Kart, and I was getting really petty and claimed that I'd break up with him if he didn't let me win. Even though I was joking, it probably still hurt him. And I think he and I both knew that if I didn't win, I'd be pissed. I wouldn't be so pissed that I'd break up with him, but I would be pretty grumpy about it. So he let me win. But then I felt like he was patronizing me, so I was a grump towards him anyway.
Yet all he did at that point was wrap me up in his arms and tell me he loves me and give me kisses on my head. I'm getting a little weak-kneed just thinking about how amazing he is, and how lucky I am to have him. Any less loving or less patient boyfriend would've snapped already. But I'm lucky to have Alex :] I wish I could tell him how amazing he is face to face with him right now. But this blog post will have to do for now.

Alex wearing my pink shirt :]
The last time we played Mario Kart was just shortly after we got together, I think. I told him that if he lost, he'd have to wear this pink shirt of mine. He told me recently that he purposely lost then too, because he wanted to please me. I felt patronized again, but I'm so glad that he doesn't mind doing these things to please me too. He doesn't mind losing the small battles to win the war, and that's just such a humbling concept to me, and makes my heart swell with love (if you'll pardon the corny expression, lol)

Lol Zombie!Alex
Bonus pic: this was taken by our club advisor at a dinner. If you'll recall, Alex and I met at Japanese Culture Club. We usually have dinner together during club, and this was taken after I "defeated" Alex. His "punishment" was that not only would he have to wear the pink shirt, he also had to wear it to JCC :] This shot was just soo...perfectly hilarious, lol.

He's a pretty good sport to put up with having to wear that shirt (which is cute, btw) XD

Boyfriends are awesome :D

I also tend to get really short-tempered over silly things a lot, and my boyfriend just goes with the flow and lets me have my way @_@
