How do you know when you’re in love?

You know you are in love when every time you start to think about the one you love, butterflies start flying in your stomach.

You know you are in love when you fine yourself shopping with that person and you feel like everything is right in the world.

You know you are in love when you can't stop touching that person.

You know you are in love when you feel miserable when you are away from that person.

You know you are in love when you start planning a future in your head.

You know you are in love when can't stop smiling every time you see that person.

I could go on with more examples. For me being in love is wonderful and yet painful. The man I love doesn't know that I do love him. He is my friend and for now that is all he wants because he is about to be deployed. Because I love him I am going to wait. Love is worth any pain and wait.
When you find yourself ignoring your own feelings and focusing on how someone else is feeling your in love. I find myself now looking at maps, tracing the distance between where he is and where I am. I now pray each and every night for him to come back safely to me.

Is it pointless to learn Latin?

I took three years of Latin in high school and it definitely helps in understanding sentence structure as well as many English words are derived from Latin bases. "Atom" means "no split" or "no cut" in Latin and it was thought in ancient Greek times that the atom is the smallest unit of matter or something which was unsplittable ...which we know today is not true yet we still use the word atom to describe the fundamental building blocks of matter. It may be a dead language but many quotes in higher literature, medical terms and legalese are in Latin. Adding Latin phrases to reports or writings adds an element of sophistication to them in some circles And there is the matter of studying classical Greek writings of Caesar, Aristotle, Plato and others in their original wording...important for scholarly research especially Linguistics.

Semper Fi...the Marine Corp motto means "always faithful" in Latin....from Semper Fidelis. Fidelis is the root word for fidelity.

"Veni, Vidi Vici" means I came, I saw, I conquered quoted from Julius Caesar.

Some have jokingly converted it to "Veni, Vici, Visa" as to mean I came, I saw, I charged it on my credit card.

....a joking reference to women shoppers.
