Opt Is Romanian For Eight?


EIGHT YEARS!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to my longest relationship EVER.

I love you Tobie. Thank you for helping me the man I've always wanted to be.

Eating Alone


I hate eating alone.

I've come to accept meals to be a very social activity even though Tobie and I tend to eat in silence when we're together. But I feel at peace when we're at the same table whether we're at home at the Sietch or at a nice restaurant. But of course we can't be together for every meal and work requirements can have us in different places.

Going home I thought it might be fun to eat out since it was just me - a way to make it more amusing or something. I initially thought of getting food at Mercato since it's not too far off my route home and then I considered going to Jollibee since I have free meals to claim thanks to my credit card. But the thought of eating out alone without Tobie just bogged me down and so I went home and reheated leftovers together with some Quorn nuggets to change things up a bit. When stuff like this happens I typically eat something light to stave my usual dinner hunger and then eat again later on once Tobie gets home. I don't have that option today since I need to get some sleep so just made the most of things for now.

This is just one of the many things that define our daily lives as a couple. It's just one of the little reminders that our lives are so deeply intertwined with one another's the slightest change in routine makes everything feel somehow wrong and out of sorts. But even the momentary bits of absence are more than balanced out by the elation you feel  once you're back in the same space again.

The Best Gift Every Year

With my birthday just around the corner, I remain thankful for the best "gift" to enter my life 8 years ago. No amount of Transformers, books or LEGO Dimensions figures comes anywhere close to all that Tobie has given to me in terms of love, support, and sheer time each and every day of our lives together.

So more than thinking about turning another year older, I'd like to take a moment to be thankful that Tobie is the man I may likely be in love with for the rest of my life.

Yoshi Echoes



Social media celebrates a lot of things including friendship anniversaries, birthdays, and old posts. And so randomly throughout the week Google or Facebook take turns digging up old photos of Yoshi.

Bittersweet is the perfect description for such moments. They still make us feel a little sad to see him since that reminds us that he's gone and that we miss him so much. But then it also gets us into retelling old stories of his quirks and the little things that made him such a lovable, adorable dog.

There will always be a gap in our hearts where Yoshi lives on and we will forever treasure that.

We Wear Matching Shirts


"What are you wearing?" is a common question we ask while at the Sietch although neither of us has any real interest in the more superfluous aspects of what most consider to be fashion. We don't ask out of a genuine interest in how we look but more to check what shirt the other person plans to wear.

One of our first matching shirts were a gift.

Over the years of being together with Tobie, we've somehow become the sort of couple wear matching shirts a lot. While it's not like our entire wardrobe consists of matching outfits or anything crazy like that. But we do have a dedicated drawer of shirts that we can wear in order to match.

At minimum we match colors.
Or shirts of the same fandom like our Night Vale election shirts.

Or we literally have the same shirts.
Or quirky Star Wars shirts
And we have fun matching.
Oh you can't see Totoro well here.
And we attend weddings this way

Just another baduy way of celebrating being together.
