He was the most unorganized, selfish, irresponsible person I have ever met in my life, but I was in love with him. This isn’t the best way to talk about the person I have spent the last 3 years of my life with, but my ex has been one of the most important people in my life recently. When we first met, he would tell me about what he wanted to do with his life, the school he was going to, and how he had all these ideas for clothing lines he wanted to create and video games he wanted to design. He always carried a sketchbook with him where he would jot down ideas and pictures whenever he would get inspired. Unfortunately, that sketchbook was more of his archive bin, because everything he had ever created would end up in that book and just stay there.
My ex was the one person who I don’t think he’s ever heard the phrase “Actions speak louder than words”, because he was one who would only speak and there would never be any action. One of the things he would always talk about is going to an art school in Australia. He would talk about how he was going to move there and start a new life, even taking the time to look up plane ticket prices and even apartments for rent there. The only problem is that he had dropped out of art school once already because he felt that the school wasn’t good enough for him. He has been talking about going to this school for almost 2 years, but he has never even done anything to actually go through with it. He never saved up a single cent, nor has he even bothered to go back to school to try to transfer.
My ex has been an important person in my life because he showed me what kind of person to NOT be. I used to talk about writing a musical, going back to school, and taking a trip to New York, and now I have an entire first act written, I’m back in school, and I’m saving up for my trip which will hopefully happen in the summer. The one thing I learned from him is that there’s no point in talking and bragging about what I want to do...
