Mattieologie: Black & White

In case you haven't noticed, I'm totally into jumpers. Like they will never get old to me. When I saw this number I almost ran out of the store with it. Don't worry, I paid for it first.

This weekend was great. I got to catch up with old friends and connect with new ones alike. We had a conversation about the things we want - in life and in relationships - and how we ask for the things we want instead of just going out and getting them. A friend expressed what she wanted out of a relationship - a title - and that she planned on asking for it this week. I suggested she TELL him - not ask him for - what she wanted because so many times when we ask for something, things become very gray. Because people don't answer you honestly all the time for the sake of sparing your feelings. If you're direct, unapologetic and CLEAR, you tend to get a better response. When you keep it black & white, you usually get it right.

That rhymed. Mission accomplished.
