Bragging Rights!

So my birthday was Sunday, I'm now 22 and officially a young woman. I actually have been thinking through things, such as tattoos and piercings and life goals, before making rash decions. Scary, I know. But anyway, October is my month long celebration, made possible by my wonderful BF! First he took me to the Blink 182 concert, then he went with me to MD for the wedding and everyone liked him, we had an awesome time together and spent an amazing (and also our first) weekend together. On my birthday weekend, he took me to the Heinekin concert to see Ludacris, Broadway to see the Lion King, and we had another interesting weekend together at a hotel and fell in love with 7 Eleven. And he got me my Coldstone's Red Velvet cake! The rest of the weekends are mine to spend with my friends and celebrate. LOL :-)

But the point is, he made sure I had a great time and enjoyed myself. I've never had anyone really go all out for me and treat me so special and not try to make it all about them. Yeah I know we're still fresh into the relationship, but damn it feels so good and he's already surpassed my previous relationships. Its still just the beginning, so I shall see and take it day by day. Not gonna go head over heels just yet. Lets see what that first year is looking like.

Karma Kickback

I wrote this 10-06-09 originally on a piece of paper, it's just taken me forever to type and post it.

In the middle of statistics [after I fell asleep] I had an awesome revelation - that karma does kickback! [and it hits hard] I swear I'm so oblivious sometimes. I was with my ex and I had him get rid of a lot of things that his exes had given him, without a thought. Like it was normal. Fast forward 2 years. My last ex made me do the same EXACT thing, down to the pictures and jewelry. Now I know how my other ex felt when I made him get rid of all his stuff. Talk about womp womp WOMPPP.. =o| not exactly the best feeling in the world. Great job karma! Learned my damn lesson though. Will not be doing that again. At least I can say I've learned and taken something from my previous relationships, so this should be the best one yet. [Let's hope so] I really don't want to fuck this one up =o/

Gotta love my random thoughts.

Memories Found

It's funny how life works. I was trying to upload my concert pics to FB, but it wasn't working, so in desperation I uploaded them to photobucket. I started looking through some of my other pics there and was sad because my last ex had deleted all of my pics of myself and my first ex. I had a random thought to check some CDs that I had made awhile back. Lo and behold my pics from 2006 were there! My ex and all. This really made me smile, thinking about the good times and the bad times we had. I checked my slideshow from my myspace days and saw some more pics from 2007. I am ecstatic!!! I thought these pics were gone forever, but here they are. I feel so relieved, excited and happy. =o)

So, yes, things come to you when you least expect it.

***EDIT*** [originally made 10-06-09 in statistics]

I was going through some of my files and I found my college entrance letter. In the very end, I saw this a part about how I wanted to be a psychology major. I wrote that letter in Nov 2004. It is now Oct 2009, and 5 years later. I should have stuck with my plan in that letter, maybe I would have been better off. Would have saved me all the trouble I went through changing majors back and forth. SMH at myself. But I wouldn't have met the people I met, or did some of the things I did. In the end I don't regret a thing. Just makes me laugh, that's all.

Not Stressing It

Looking for a job is necessary, but I have decided to just let it come to me. I mean sure I'll still be applying here and there, but I'm not going to go so hard. More often than not, things come when you least expect it. Honestly I've never really had to try hard to get a job [knock on wood] So I am just not going to stress it. It'll come in time when I'm ready for it.

"Money comes when you are doing the right thing"

I'm not stressing school like that either, it's my last semester and all, but I'm not going to kill myself over it. It's not that hard. All I have to do is my work, get it done and handed in on time. I'm not really working a lot, so I can make the time to do it. I just get distracted too easily. But I'm not forcing it either. I know how I operate, it'll get done.

Overall that's just my general outlook on life. Thanks to my home girl for passing this quotation on to me:

"For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have been thinking about this every time something minor happens. It's not worth the stress, headache and drama. My peace of mind is worth a lot more than giving them a piece of my mind. lol [I like the play on words] I'm just kicking back and enjoying life while I can. You should do the same.

=o) Smile, and pass it on. It can go a long way and help brighten up someone else's day!
