that one time i was in greece

anonymous asked:

How common is it for Greek citizens to marry other nationals, just for the citizenship? Like a Greek marrying an American just to get citizenship, and presumably ditch them after. Just curious, bc where I live, there are many Albanians who know at least one relative who has done that LOL (yes IK Greeks are a universe away from Albos but Greece is going thru rough times, making me wonder if ppl are desperate to get out)

Although I’m not personally familiar with any such cases and I don’t really have any statistics to present (or even know whether statistics for that kind of thing exist in the first place), it’s possible that some Greeks might’ve married to foreigners in prospect of getting citizenship. Idk if most of them would ditch them immediately afterwards, but many people who only marry for the sake of getting citizenship do that, so Greeks would probably not be an exception.

But yeah, as I said, I’m not familiar with any such incidents so I can’t really say for sure :/

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
