I have a crush on someone

what I want...
(click here for a raw shot)

I admit, I have a bit of a twitter crush on someone. But unlike most of the time when you crush on someone because of their looks, I crush because of the things he says. I’ve been following him for over a year now and it seems no matter what is happening in my life, he always knows exactly what to say to show me the way. He often makes these lists of things people should be doing and he’s also pretty tough on his followers at times, but I kind of enjoy it.

If you go through my favorites on twitter, I am sure you will see him pop up many times. I tend to fav a lot of his stuff. He’s probably one of my favorite people on twitter. Sometimes it just feels like he’s talking directly to me and he has all of the answers I was looking for. Is that weird? Don’t answer that. 😛

Today he tweeted something that really resonated with me. It was in several parts again so I’m only going to share a part of it, you can see the rest on his twitter, and I recommend following him:
Umair Haque
“Getting what you want won’t make you happy. It will make you indifferent. To the life you were meant to live. So you should never hope to get what you want. Instead, you should hope for more: to give all you can, to a life that matters.”

It’s interesting that he tweeted this today as I’ve been recently thinking about a lot of my choices the past several months and how happy I am with the direction my life is going. He always seems to know exactly what to say when I need to hear it.

So yeah, after a year or so of following him, I can safely say, I’m totally crushing hard. I think it really started when he tweeted this though:
“The purpose of life is growth beyond the self. And chocolate.”

  • Wow that skin looks great on you. But you have talent at tweaking shapes to fit the skin and I DON’T lol. Cool I like that last tweet too. 🙂

  • Chantel Ashdene

    Very pretty looking skin, natural looking.
    This tweet regarding chocolate … I’m with him.

  • He’s a zombie slayer…we all need that for the upcoming apocalypse! And did he just tweeted that babies are cute? Ooooh my. I’m trying to ignore the fact that you’re wearing Arcade things here. I am determined not to go anywhere near it til the second week. (Puts up shield of Willpowerness!)

  • Wow. I wish that skin was out when I recently dropped a fortune on upgrades. And thanks for sharing those thoughts. I might have to get my own Twitter account.

  • Wow Berry! It’s wonderful to meet someone you feel a connection with, and he sounds like a very thoughtful man. Good luck girlfriend.

  • Thanks everyone! <3

    Hey Yordie, I think you misunderstood my post. I didn't mean to say he was my boyfriend, lol. He's just someone I follow on Twitter who I feel shares lots of inspirational words and I just wanted to recommend that you guys follow him too. That's all. I don't know him personally.

  • I have been a fan of Skinnery big time lately and I really love that skin on you!!

  • Kyra Rosenfeld

    He has a very attractive brain :-).

  • I don’t care about Twitter or anything “social network” at all, don’t even have a phone smart enough to display tweets BUT yeah, Skinnery have some very nice and natural skins. I got 2 lately and really enjoy them. I wear them “naked”, without any makeup, as it suits a beach and sail bum like me.

  • Lovely skin on you 🙂 this is no monday meme though. It could have been though. Questions like:
    Do you have a crush on somebody atm? Does he know it or are you just in the state of flirting? Do you want someone else to tell him as you re too shy yourself?? And is the internet generally the right place to fall in love? – giggles*.
    Loved reading this cute post :))

  • Currently it sounds like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on
    your blog?
