~* Hiatus *~

This might be my last post for a little while. I'm moving tomorrow, and I don't have my own computer yet. Hopefully, mine will get here quickly, but who knows?

Tomorrow is the big day. Moving day. Moving out, moving on. I'm going to be sharing a place with a pretty cool chick and her 4 dogs. I won't be lonely, that's for sure. It's a nice place, with plenty of space, and it's 2 miles away from work, which is freakin' amazing. I'll be able to sleep til 4:30am, instead of getting up at 4am! Seriously, the money I'll save on gas should be pretty awesome.

I know somebody out there is probably thinking "Wow, isn't that really quick? Aren't you sad at all?". Well, sure I'm sad. But, I can't keep living like this separation and impending divorce isn't going to happen. It's unhealthy for both of us for me to stay in the house, and we both deserve a better quality of life. As for the quickness...well, I don't think it's quick. I've ended relationships and moved out in the same day before.

I'm hoping 2013 brings better times, more smiles, and peace for the both of us. I'm ready to move beyond the misery. So, til next time...

~* New Year, New Everything *~

That's how it feels, like everything will be new this year. I know that's an exaggeration, but it's how I feel. But I'm looking forward to it. This is the year I turn 30, and it WILL be a great year.

This year, I will focus on myself a little more. My well-being, my state of mind, my happiness, and my goals. I want to turn 30 looking the best I ever have. I want to visit family. I want to paint. I want to compete. This is my year.

I also want to be able to put the negativity behind me. I want to hold on to the good memories from my marriage and let go of the bitterness and resentment. I want to be able to walk away with lessons learned and best wishes for him in the future. I want to be able to feel hopeful about my future relationships. I want to stay open-minded, and not let the fear of failure or being hurt prevent me from enjoying life and the people in it.

I want to gain financial stability on my own, and I want to end 2013 with a long-term plan. Or at least an outline of a plan. Right now, I'm perfectly content to take things day-by-day. At this point in my life, that's how I need to be. But I'd like to have an idea of where I'm going, when I'm going, why I'm going, and how I'm going to get there.

But, I have 364 more days before I really need to worry about that.

Happy 2013, y'all!!

~* RSVP *~

Friday night, one of my clients invited me to a party at her house the next night. My first invitation to a party in I-don't-know-how-long. Maybe my first ever alone. 70s and 80s themed. Ummm.

I was TOLD to go. By more than one person. Apparently, the entire gym has taken it upon themselves to make sure I get out more in the coming year. I guess I'm the new pet project. So, I agreed to go. But what the hell was I going to wear?? I had just packed up most of my stuff...

This is what I came up with.

And ya know what? I had a freakin' blast. I was the token white girl, which, where I come from would have been a little awkward...but not here. Not with these people. There was a DJ playing old school 80s hip hop, good food, good people...just a really really good time. I'm so happy I went!! I can't wait for the next chance to try something new!
