LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP

You wouldn't believe me if I told you that I've been in a long distance relationship with my fiance for 3 years. We knew each other since High School and I remember the first time I saw her and it was right there that I fell for her. It never really worked out at first because things were so complicated back in high school. It was after we both graduated and started college that we started becoming interested in each other again. What really interest her the most about me this time was how much I grew up and the fact that I became a christian also had an affect. For me it was the fact that she was a christian as well and the fact that she grew up as well. It was great to see how much we were so compatible with each other.

After a few weeks of talking to each other we became an item. Our friends weren't shocked that it happened because unlike us they figured that we would end up together at some point but most people never expected for us to last this long. We are engaged and are getting married after we finish college. Now, we are very happy together, but as you all may know a long distance relationship is not easy at all and most long distance relationships don't last long. So for this blog I wanted to share 5 tips to help you on your long distance relationship. I will talk more about this topic in the future.

  • Communication: Now I know that you're suppose to communicate in a normal relationship as well but you really need to communicate in a long distance relationship. you don't get to see each other often so staying in touch as much as possible really helps trust me. Also remember that you have a life outside of the relationship so learn to take some time for yourself, go to the movies, out with friends, stuff like that.

  • Trust: trusting your boyfriend/girlfriend is important and since you can't see them when you want it makes since why you would have a hard time trusting them. If you really love someone the way you say you do you're gonna have to stop asking them all them question. Just remember that whatever they're doing behind your back will come to light. I'm not saying that you shouldn't ask questions, just don't go overboard. (enjoy this video for a few laughs. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1pkVrHKDik

  • Upsides: You may be in a long distance relationship but it does have it's upsides. For example the one thing that you guys do the most is communicate, going back to the first point. One of the biggest problems that some relationships have is communicating to one another, in most cases it's the guy who has the problem communicating. Being in a long distance relationship takes care of that. I spoke to one of my friends who was in a long distance relationship for a while and when she finally moved in with her boyfriend they still had problems like any other couple but communication wasn't one of them.

  • Have Fun: Keep things fresh when you're in a long distance relationship. Create games that you can play with each other, send fun pictures to each other and more. Here are a couple things that I do with my girl to keep things exciting.
The Question Game:
A game where you ask each other questions and have to answer, but you have to say the truth. The limits to those questions are really up to you.
Skype Movie Date:
Have a date night where you two video chat while watching a movie. It's really fun, especially if he/she is a movie freak.
Picture Date:
This is where we take pictures and send to each other, the limit to what kind of pictures you wanna send to each other are really up to you.

There are a couple of more things that we do but really what I'm trying to say is to use your imagination to keep things fresh in your long distance relationship.
I'm really happy in my relationship and I love my fiance but it does get hard at times, just remember to never go to bed angry, talk things out and be creative.

Film review – Django Unchained (2012)


Django Unchained Stars Jamie foxx as Django Freeman and Christoph Waltz as Dr. Schultz. The movie focuses on mostly those two characters. Django is a slave and Dr. Schultz is a bounty hunter. When Dr. Schultz saves Django then he is no longer a slave but a bounty hunter as well, so they team up to find these wanted man and to also save Django's wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). Throughout the movie they show you Django's wife Broomhilda in a couple scenes until she is finally revealed later on in the film, but I wouldn't want to spoil that for you. What blew me away was how everyone in this movie was great, the casting was brilliant!

This movie has to do with alot, like slavery, bounty hunting, revenge and more. Django Unchained has alot of humor in it but that's no surprise that the humor works with this film cause Quentin Tarantino makes any movie he does work. There was one scene that really made me laugh out loud and it's the scene with the KKK, trust me it's funny. What I loved the most is that it's also a love story because I'm a sucka for love. You can feel the love that Django and Broomhilda have for each other throughout this film and you really care for their characters. It wasn't cheesy or overdone, it was just right. 

One negative thing I hear people say about this movie is that it's a tad long but I actually don't mind the length. I enjoy long films. This movie is pretty violent so I wouldn't recommend watching this with your children. If you love action films trust me you will love this movie! if you love romantic comedies you will love this movie! if you love... you get where I'm going with this right? 
Django Unchained is a movie that comes once in a lifetime, it's the total package, trust me you should watch this film. 
Quentin Tarantino does it once again, this movie is a masterpiece, from the music, the outfits, acting, story line, awesome action scenes and more. I have nothing bad to say about Django Unchained, so on that note watch this trailer if you haven't already to get an idea of what this western is all about. I give this movie a 10/10.

My Top 5 Favorite Video Game Characters
(this list is subject to change in the future)


These are a few of my favorite video game characters, this list will consist of only the main characters in those video games. In the future I will do more of theses and it wont always be "My" Top favorites.


5. Sly Cooper
5 Sly is one cool character, if you haven't played Sly Cooper then you are missing out. It's a great game with cool visuals, super fun and full of awesome characters, from Sly's team and even his enemies. Sly has funny one liners that will sure to either make you smile or laugh and he is a blast to play as. You have to play this game trust me, I still play it to this day and can't wait to see what the future has in store for this character.

4. Sonic The Hedgehog
4 If you haven't played Sonic for the Genesis then something is wrong with you. He is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time. This character is fast, funny and full of personality. Now I'm not a huge fan of the current Sonic games but I do enjoy them, you can't really go wrong with Sonic, so give this game a try, if you haven't already. Sure wish they made more games like this today.
3. Max Payne
3 When it comes to Max Payne there is nothing bad that I can say about him, well except maybe to ease up on the pain killers. Max is a great character and you can't help but to feel for this guy, especially when you play Max Payne 3. My God I love that game. Everything about that game is amazing and it also feels like a movie in a way with so many of those cut scenes that come on quite often but they're so great that it wont even border you. If they do make a Max Payne 4 I would like to make it more of open world game like Skyrim or GTA, just a thought, let me know what you guys think about that below in the comments.
2. Mario
2 "It's a me Mario" ask anyone that's close to me and they will tell you how much I love this character, but it's not just the character it's the game as well. Mario was voted number 1 for the greatest game of all time on G4tv, which sadly now is no longer a video game network. Anyways, Now if this were a list for "My" top favorite video games Mario would have probably ended up being number 1 on that list, but who knows. Mario is just a great character, his fun and very likable. I really don't know anyone who never heard of Mario and if you haven't then you probably have been living under a rock.
1. Marcus Fenix
1 "Revive Me!" Marcus Fenix is my all time favorite character in a video game, this guy is freaking awesome!! Gears of War is one of my favorite shooters and Gears 3 is the game that made me become an even bigger fan of the franchise. Gears 3 just nailed it! amazing graphics, amazing story line, amazing gameplay and you gotta love the weapons!! there are so many great things that I can say about this game and it's main character Marcus Fenix. It sucks that Marcus will not be in Gears of War Judgement but I'll just have to wait and see how it goes, maybe there will be a DLC for his character but who knows.
