So this is my desktop in my room and you can imagine me sitting there right now typing this blog post. By looking at this, you might probably deduce that I like pink. So let me tell you now that no, I don’t. It just so happens that I like to paint my room pink, but that doesn’t mean that it’s my favorite color. My favorite colors are violet and yellow. Okay that was too trivial, but whatever. :) I am a creative person and I really like art in whatever form. You can’t see the other parts of my room, but there are a lot of inspirational quotes plastered on my walls. I also like organizing so that’s what the calendar is for. No, that’s no right. The calender is supposed to be used for planning. But I don’t like planning so that’s odd. Anyway, that’s what my violet calendar is for — to remind about the dates I won’t probably forget anyways, because if I can’t remember them, it won’t be written there. :)
To the right of my calendar is the pink headset (no, I don’t like pink). This one is a bit memorable for me because this is the headset I had bought for my job as a home based online tutor. That’s an expensive headset and I love it. The mic is crisp and clear with noise cancelling. The output is amazing for music and the bass just hits the spot. Eargasmic, really. Below the calendar are a lot of things. My To-do and Buy list are hanging there somewhere. I have there photos of me and my boyfriend, my dog, my sister, my boyfriend’s photo when he was a kid (so adorable!) and my graduation picture (basically to remind me that I am a nurse). A ribbon, a small bear, a badge saying “I am for peace” and oh, my self portrait in scrubs (I don’t think you can see it though).
Finally, to the left of my calendar is a piece of something.
That’s my name btw. A wire formed into my name. And that’s the reason why this picture exist.
That, ladies and gentledudes is a piece of something my boyfriend gave me. :) That’s a thick wire mind you and it’s really hard to form it. To see it from a set of an outsider’s eyes, it’s nothing. For me, it’s really a very nice and simple gesture that I appreciate so much. :) The effort he gave while taking his time to make this for me is really heart warming. Imagine him sitting there, just bending away, all the while thinking of me. ♥
I think it completes the design of my desktop. Don’t you? :)
So guys, really, it’s not the price. It’s the effort that counts. You don’t have to buy her expensive things all the time. Small act of gestures will never go unnoticed. I personally like hand made stuff because I’m a creative person. But in general, when you make a girl pick between a handwritten letter and a piece of chocolate, I’d say she’d like both but after the chocolates are all gone, she’d put that piece of paper with your letter on it in a very special place like a letter heaven where all the very valuable letters lay to rest. :)
There, and also in her heart – where all the small gestures are multiplied. :)
