2010 -- A Review

Hello My Little Turtle Doves...........

Happy New Years !

2010 was definitely not dull.......

Here are some things I did or that happened to me in 2010 the year I will have to kiss good bye tonite................

-- I moved
-- I joined a new gym and enrolled in bootcamp class
-- I made a new years resolution to work out continuously and kept it all year long
-- My thighs no longer rub together when I walk.
-- I got hired in my field after busting my ass volunteering for 3 years for no pay and facing two years of continuous rejection. And I got hired in a difficult sector to get into, by a boss that wants me to learn everything slowly.
-- I made two new girlfriends, I met one last year, but she came back into my life this year
-- I got back into bellydance after a few years of what I felt like was an artistic block
-- I went skydiving
-- I saw my favorite comedian and danced with my bellydance idol.
-- I took a wine tour in Napa
-- Went to Lake Tahoe
-- Traveled to Paris and Amsterdam
-- I went to Paris alone and fell in love with the city. It's such a cliche but I fell in love with Paris and it truly is full of romance. I left a little luggage lock on the bridge to symbolize my love for it. I took the key with me. I met my French BFF. I talked to people on the streets, I ate wonderful food, I just let myself enjoy the experience. And I truly lived.
-- Traveled to Amsterdam and met my Amsterdam BFF. What started out as a trip from hell leaving me feeling defeated, ended up as a wonderful ending. I was really greatful for the kindness strangers showed me.
-- I finally wore my prized dress to our firm's party this year. After years of no holiday parties, I finally got to go to one. I also got my first bonus.

Who knows what 2011 will bring................

But I will keep it simple and make a few resolutions.....

-Devote myself to bellydance again. Join a troupe and start performing again.
- I want to wear my two-piece on a French beach
- I want to see my friend's new apartment in Amsterdam
- I want to stop being so addicted to the Internet
- I want to get on a sleep schedule

And the rest is still unwritten. My wants are modest, I just want to be happy and live a fulfulled life with lots of love, happiness, friendships and laughter. And that all became clearer to me after I turned 30 last month.

So goodbye 2010, thanks for your kindness and sense of humor.

Hello to 2011, I am coming to you with an open heart and mind...................

What a year it's been! Falling in love with France sounds like a dream come true. I'd love the opportunity to walk its streets and spend a few nights under its beautiful skies.

All the best to you in 2011, Srta!! xo

I think lotsa guys are going to make resolutions that they want to see you in your two piece as well. =^D

For me.. it's going to be the year of trying new things. First on the list.. taking up Bongos. I'm also going to try and enjoy life more, and cherish every moment of free time I have.

Happy New year sweets!!!

I thought the most interesting things in Paris was the catacombs under the city, where the bones of 6,000,000 people are stacked like cord wood for miles. Good luck with you resolutions. And congrats on your achievements.

Just telling it like it is said...
