It’s been about a month since I’ve talked about Mr Fireplace. I know that it’s been a busy time for everyone including me. I’ve been focused on my studies, recently and finding time to contact friends has been getting a little difficult for me. But I do find a bit of time, to talk to Mia and find out what she’s been doing. Mia and I became friends when I was her followed me on Twitter. I’m not going say which Twitter handle that she followed me on because she also follows me on my own Twitter.
Mia reminds me to never give up hope. And she’s right, why should I give up now when I’m so close to achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself? I know that may sound cliché but I do have goals that I am working towards. And I want to achieve them in my own terms, starting with making a few connections with people already living in Los Angeles or in the state of California. My cousins, Gaby and Bella lives in California, but they are not necessarily a connection within the film industry. They are family!
As much I want to continue talking about my family, I actually want to talk about the guy that I talked about on my old blog. As the story goes, he came to talk to me with his friends by his side. He told me that he had to go because he had classes in the morning. A couple of years along the line, he wanted to meet me so he had someone that he knows through one of his bandmates, Alana Ranes contact me through my sister. So, someone gave the message to my sister, Francine about him wanting to meet up with me. And I told her, “why me? Why does he want to meet me?” I could not figure it out that the time so I asked my sister, “did she give you a name? Because I would know who you are talking about if she gave you a name” and she said no. I just shrugged my shoulders and told her, “no, I don’t know him. Why would I meet someone that I’ve never met before?”

I know that may sound a little harsh. But if you have met me in real life, you would know one thing and that’s I don’t like surprises unless it’s a present. Don’t I have the right to turn a invitation down if I do not feel safe about it? To be honest, I didn’t know what he might’ve felt. I probably hurt him somehow. But as far as I know, things always happen for a reason. There’s a reason why I didn’t want to meet up with him back then. It was probably better that we were both acquaintances to start with. I was probably thinking that if I wait a little longer then maybe out paths could cross again in the future which I am hoping for.
I told Mia about this a while back. I told her that I just wanted to talk to him and catch up. We actually made a group chat several months ago with Mr Fireplace in it, hoping that he would respond to us but he didn’t. Is he still mad at me for being completely honest to my sister?
I still hope that he notices that I am trying to reconnect with him now and that I am only figuring out that it was him that wanted to meet me.
Music maybe a great way to write all of your thoughts and heartaches out for people to relate to and so is film.
(I was in front of the TV. It wasn’t a real fireplace, but. I do like my metaphors. YAY!)
Never give up hope!
