Health Care and Yoga

Hello there my lovelies,

Beginning next month, I will be eligible for full medical and dental benefits with my job. It feels good to know that if something happens I can see the doctor or go to the hospital.

I also went to yoga again last night. It felt really good. I like how it stretches my back, especially after the car accident. Now when I practice bellydance, I can hold poses longer and with more grace. I watched a video of a performance I did before Christmas and I have come a long way.

I am in this for the long haul. I like to think of bellydance and yoga as a journey that has just begun.

Family from Austria

Hello there my lovelies,

So my Aunt and cousins from Austria are here and I was in San Francisco with them all day yesterday and the night before.

We stayed in Park hotel on Sutter Street. The hotel is old, and I felt like I was in the Titanic. The elevator was something else. It had a manual switch to go to the next floors, and you had to pull a gate of bars to close the door. I don't really know how to describe it, but think about the elevator in Titanic. It was like that.

There were 5 of us in a 2 bedroom space, so I shared the bed with my other 2 cousins. I slept pretty well.

Yesterday we got up early and spent all day walking. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. I don't think it could have been any more perfect. We left the hotel from Sutter Street, walked through China Town to Lombard Street, down to Ghiradelli Square to have a huge ice cream, down near the beach, across a few neighborhoods to the Exploratorium, and from there all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. We walked across half of the bridge. Then we walked all the way back to the hotel, minus a few blocks. We broke down and took the bus for the last few blocks because we were simply too damn tired.

I had a really good time. I took so many pictures. I felt like such a tourist. I loathe driving and parking there, so I took Bart, and didn't have to worry about it.

Anywho, that is all for now. It is nice having my family here. I can't wait to go visit them in Austria again. The next time I go, I will also make a small trip to Amsterdam.

Relief

Well hello there my lovelies,

After looking for a new roommate since the beginning of NOVEMBER, I finally found a new place to live. I feel really relieved, especially since I had so many places fall through at the last minute. I was beginning to feel hopeless.

I saw the place, and I decided that I would move in ASAP. I was given the key. I will be starting to move stuff tommorow.

I am so happy that I don't have to deal with my old roommate anymore. I was really fed up with his stupid rules. I left a small deposit when I first moved in, and I honestly don't expect it back, especially since he once tried getting me for $30 I didn't owe him. I will look at this as cutting my losses. The deposit isn't big enough for me to shit a brick over.

Anywho, I will write more later

The latest

Hello there my lovelies,

It has been such a long time since I last updated. I've been adjusting to my new position at work as well as getting ready for my bellydance festival. There is a lot of work to be done. I still have to work on the main costume and I am ordering stuff from EBay. But I got the case for my sword finished and I also got my music for the routine edited. I will be practicing tommorow to get the routine together.

I also got into a car wreck earlier this week on my way to work.  I am still a little stiff, but other than that I am okay. I am happy that no one was hurt and that I didn't have to spend anytime at the hospital. I tried stretching before I started dancing, and I could tell that I was very stiff.

What else........ Oh yeah, I am STILL trying to move out. I have been looking for a new roommate since NOVEMBER. It is now February. I really love the house I live in, but I can't stand my roommate any longer. He is so one-sided and selfish.I don't want to move, but I don't want to deal with him any longer.

I have two different places that I looked at and I liked. Both options looked very promising at first. And now it seems like they are both falling through. It's all so frustrating.

Anyway, I am gonna go and nap a little.

Ciao ciao.
