Happy New Year!

Monday, December 31st, 2007

Oh, 2007. It was quite an interesting year. A lot of events and people have changed my life. I fell in love, and felt my first real heartbreak. I made new friends, and lost touch with others. I celebrated my 1,000th day of being cancer-free. I discovered Apples to Apples, Seamless Web, Philadelphia rolls, PaperbackSwap.com and Cover Girl LashExact mascara. I traveled far and (U.S.) wide, and discovered places like San Francisco, Hoboken and Port Henry. I finally got my new bedroom after years of planning, and painted it to match my blog (seriously, I tested out the color scheme here first). I learned that I am a really good bullshitter, yet I still can’t hide my emotions. I finally let my sister cut and color my hair. I watched my favorite band can yet another lead singer and find #6… off of YouTube, no less.

I turned 25 -Â quarter of a century – and no longer have to pay crazy age-based premiums on car rentals. I’ve found it to be an otherwise uneventful age. But, yikes, I’m in my mid-twenties. My friends are getting engaged, married and having babies. When did I get so old?

2008. Will it be even better? I know I have lots of things to work on, but I’m not going to make any resolutions (wait, is saying that I’m not going to make any resolutions a resolution?), just to set myself up for disappointment like I did in 2007, 2006, 2005 … all the way until 1988 (I figure that’s the first year I actually understood what resolutions are). But I really should work on getting healthier, more organized and maintain better relationships with my family and friends. And maybe update this blog more.

Happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone – I hope you have a wonderful day and stuff yourself silly!

I am thankful for:

  • My family and friends, who’ve shaped me in to whom I’ve become
  • My pets, who never fail to put a smile on my face
  • My health, and that I’ve been cancer-free for two years
  • My job, which  introduces me to fascinating people and places
  • My home, though crazy, is a haven I can come home to each day
  • My books, which take me to places I might never get to go
  • My music, the background to many important times in my life
  • My imagination, which has gotten me far in life
  • And chocolate, which has always been there to help out in any situation

43 Natural Highs

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

My friend Marie sent this to me in an e-mail, and I thought it was a great list. So, here are 43 natural highs:

  1. Falling in love.
  2. Laughing so hard your face hurts.
  3. A hot shower.
  4. No lines at the supermarket.
  5. A special glance. (more…)
