Hello there my lovelies,
Just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Years. I hope that 2005 was a wonderful year for you. It was an eye-opening year for me. A lot of changes and a lot of new beginnings. I was in Europe half the year. And when I came back, I kinda started all over again. I bought a new car and got a new job. And now I am looking for a new place to live.
This year was difficult for me. Not horrible, because I know that things coulda been a lot worse. But this year is when I started to wake up. I learned that if I want things to change, that I have to make the changes myself. In Europe I faced a lot of hardships. I had a roommate that was borderline stalker. I moved out and ran into more problems. So I moved out again and had a blast with my gal roommate. I also didn't know if I was going to get EU residency. I kept fighting till the end anyways and exhausted every possibility until the very last day. I didn't get my papers, but I know I did everything I could. I am proud of myself because I worked with what I had and made the best of it.
I also learned that some people that I fully trusted and loved all my life were in fact, not really trustworthy at all. To tell you the truth, it really hurts. How will I ever be able to fully trust someone without question? But you know what ? I finally found out after all these years. And now I can start the recovery process.
I also learned a lot in the men department. I learned that I am worth a lot more that I have been giving myself credit for. And as a result, if I am not getting treated with respect, I won't make excuses for the guy. I just drop him. I just let it go.
And last but not least, I want to thank God for a clean bill of health this year. I am truly blessed to be healthy. I can deal with almost anything as long as me and my loved ones are healthy. I can't stress enough how lucky I am. I can only hope that 2006 will be a healthy year too.
Today is the last day of 2005 so I wanted to do something interesting. So I got my navel pierced. I really wanted to do it while I was abroad in Spain, but I never got around to it. I have been putting it off for so long. Plus, navel piercings take 6 months to a year to fully heal, so I was also a little nervous.
So after work today, I just waltzed on over to the studio and got it done. I was tired of putting it off. Lemme tell you that it DOES hurt. They smiled and told me it "hurts just a little." That is such horse shit. Not only did I fully feel that needle, but I also felt like someone was taking my skin and twisting it around until I screamed "MERCY".
But after all was said and done, it looks pretty good. It's gonna be a nice addition to my dance routines.
Anyways, Happy New Years to y'all !
