Luck be an old lady

Luck be an old lady

Mis-Adventures
In the past few months (year?) I said I would name each of my blog post after a Sex and the City Episode. I decided now to not only do that, but give a brief description of the episode that led to its suggestion. In "Luck be an old lady" Carrie desperately tries to get everyone together for Charlotte's "thirty-faux" birthday. Charlotte doesn't want to turn 36 because she feels she's getting old. Miranda goes to Atlantic City with the girls, feeling self-conscious about her weight. Samantha is paranoid that Richard is cheating with the entire female hotel staff. In less than 6 months I will be 30 and I feel just like  Charlotte - I was so close to my goal and now I am starting over and I…

** this post was started on 4/21/2014 ** The quest to be fit and healthy for me often makes me feel like I am a hamster running on a wheel. I often don't know where to start, how it started and what steps to take and what defines DONE. But in the quest for health and fitness there is no finite done. You keep going on maintaining health until death, or at least that's the general idea, right? With so much information on health and fitness from thousands of sources, its kind of hard to pin point what your believe system should be on this. So this year, I took up running. I saw this quote and it was so accurate. I never imagined myself as a runner, a jogger,…

Before I start, I think I've decided to start using SATC episode titles to title my blog posts... they seem to fit everything. I hope I don't get sued. Onward to the topic at hand ... There are many things right now that I am wholly uninterested in. Currently, I have no interest in first dates and getting to know you. The idea of asking those questions like, "who you be with? What ya interest are? Things that make you smile and what numbers to dial," make me want to bury my head in a groundhog fashion. I just feel completely disinterested in the whole process. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely want to end my single status, but at what cost? I've signed up for freeonline dating sites before,and…

In an effort to really show that I'm serious about my future, I've taken to reading some dating books. I mean, clearly I need to do something different if I want new results. I had "Finding a Man Worth Keeping" on my bookshelf for years, but never opened it. Over the past month I've gotten about 4 chapters in. Even though its weird at first, I like that the author has you do some self-evaluation and assessments. Its sort of an "interactive" book in the way A Purpose Driven Life is. So once a week, I sit down with my notebook and see whats next. I admit, the past week or two I haven't been as diligent, because I'm not quite sure how ready for dating I am. But whose…

I have this bad habit of starting a post, walking away because my thoughts don't feel complete and then an undisclosed amount of time passes so I no longer remember my original train of thinking ... #fail. Anyway... I hope this still makes sense " There is peace in knowing and the needing to guess where I stand. Not having to resort to decoding inference and weigh actions in relation to silence. Not having to devote any time to wondering and waiting, freed to devote myself wholly to wanting." -- Ladidahdi of Liquor,  Loans, and Love Recently I woke up feeling as though I was being tested due to recent circumstances where someone from my past was continually reaching out trying to touch me. Even though I didn't outright reject…

On my makeshift desk I found a list titled "What Have I Learned This Year;" judging from the other notes on this torn notebook page it was written sometime in March or April because it references my Capstone opportunity. The list reads this verbatim 1. Your personality is yours. It is good, positive. Don't attempt to change it. 2. Confidence ---> you lack it must regain it. 3. Health is important but I don't work hard enough to maintain it. 4. You are smart in a way that you don't have to compare to others. 5. Stop comparing yourself. You won't eat, think, talk, sleep or do anything like others. Think for yourself. Be yourself. Challenge yourself. What are your hobbies? How well do you know yourself. This note was…

I wrote this post 9 days ago according to iNotes. I remember writing it on a plane and stopping because I was getting emotional. While that felt like months ago it was less than two weeks ago.  Days and nights seamlessly merge without much distinction or distraction, not always a bad thing to feel as if your on a continuum, unless you revel in change and growth, as I often do. Anyway, the actual post ... I've missed the space where I felt I could truly be the person I imagine myself to be. That space is here on your screen behind the guise of Wordpress. I've been away from my site and my notebook for far too long, long enough where I can't even fathom calling myself a blogger, writer or…

In the City of Sex …

NO! Not that kind of Sex .. IDK that title just sort of came out when I went to type in the title field. .. usually titles are so hard to come up with for me, but sometimes they just flow.. So anywho .. I spent the last weekend of September on my couch watching the first half of Season Six Part 1, all part two and the first Sex and the City movie. And as I was going to bed tonight, I was thinking about how no matter how many times I watch it, I never grow to love Jennifer Hudson's character. That all you remember about her was her bad country accent and city naiveté she represents. Then it hit me. The characters from sex and the city, the people they interact…

NEWSFLASH: YOu do not get my friendship as a consolation prize. What I mean by this is you (particularly a man) who may have been interested in dating are not allowed to keep talking to me every day on the basis of "I thought we were friend" if either myself or you are not interested in the other person any longer. Back Story. SO a few months ago my friend pressured me to join an online dating site. And I did it, reluctantly. I exchanged numbers with a few people and I met a few people. Maybe I will share some stories. This "friendship" person.. was someone I exchanged numbers with. We talked on the phone a few times and had great conversation. We talked about things from television shows…

Pardon me as I'm still on this New  Year Resolution thing and the concept of "RESOLVE". What does it mean to make and keep a resolution, especially one rooted in change in oneself? The other day I was sitting home being very self deprecating because I had already slipped up on one of my resolutions ... Left Brain: You suck. You couldn't even stick it out for 2 full weeks? 8 days? 8 days is all you lasted, seriously? Right Brain: Relax.  Things happen. Take it easy. No Harm. You  had a good time, no? Heart: You really messed up. You know what you want, but you aren't taking the steps to get there. What are you scared of? Left Brain: You just don't know what will power is. You…

Whenever I have a strong reaction to something, I try to figure out why.. I usually find that whenever I'm upset with something it stems from some major issue I probably haven't gotten over in life. . So why would I care to write about this.

Did you know that you inherently speak three different languages? Yes, its true. Or at least I do. My head speaks English. And it understands cause and affect among other rational thoughts. My heart speaks spanish. It's confusing. If you don't use it, you kinda forget it. It has all these verbs that need conjugating. And my vagina speaks English. But not traditional English like my head. It's more of how Audrey II , the plant from Little Shop of Horrors speaks English. Without really knowing consequences or about feelings. Got it? Ok  Good… Why am I talking about this? Honestly? I have no idea, the thought just came to me. But I think its valid given my current situation. I feel like when I'm impatient (or really horny) I…

[caption id="attachment_2675" align="alignleft" width="300"] twitter, facebook, logo[/caption] So, this year for lent I'm giving up twitter and facebook. Shoot me now. People asked me why and I just asked, What Would Jesus Do? And then said Let me be great! Lol So I'm going to do a post (hopefully daily) on things I would have tweeted about.. 1. Whatever happened to that movie where 50 cent was looking real crackish? 2. Grrrr NJTransit. They don't realize the impact of their tardiness and or inconveniences-for instance, just pulling into a different track can make someone miss their connecting train. >:/ 3.
