A comedian once said, "When you wake up, hold your hands up in front of you and push. If there is nothing, it's okay. You lived." I assume he was referring to a coffin. This morning was sort of like that. I woke up, I rolled over, and I sort of just lay there. I'm awake. I'm breathing. That's about it.
Yes, I'm being ever so slightly melodramatic, but I've got to be honest with myself - I'm a little blah. Blah over how everything has turned out in my life, though please know, I recognize I am incredibly lucky compared to others. I am grateful for what I have, and for who I have become. I worked extremely hard to expose myself to as many things as possible, and for whatever reason, I find myself surrounded by some of the most interesting people, where ever I go...
It's just that I feel stuck.
Granted, I am sure it's a fleeting thing, and maybe I'm just being whiny. I think that cut from the museum, financially, did a number on me. Remember the movie, "Friday?"
Yeah, that's how I feel. lol
The good news - IT'S ALMOST OCTOBER.
If that is not reason to celebrate, I don't know what is! As you may know, historically September is very mean to me. My room mate and I were discussing it, and I listed out the dates of really big things that have happened to me (that were NOT happy,) and they all took place in September. Even she admitted, there seems to be a bit of a curse.
The good news is, Autumn is upon us! (One of my favorite seasons.) I bought a glittery jack-o-lantern that has a little light in it to celebrate. Yeah, I know.. cheesy.
The cheese festival is taking place in Atlanta this weekend, as well as the One City Art Fest in Macon. As far as things to do - there are plenty! I talked the roomie into picking out a pumpkin to carve, and I certain hope someone throws a costume party! Not to mention, I finally get to break out those scarves I collect all year.
There is so much to look forward to and be thankful for.
Oh yeah.. I have something sort of funny to share. (Yes, the blog post is all over the damn place...) October will be no man October. I can't date during this month. No flirting. No nothing. Sound silly? It's not. I'm purging. I need a clean slate. Certain people are taking up too much of my time and too much space in my head. (And the truth is.. these situations will lead nowhere - so why waste my time?)
Sound good? lol We'll see.. We'll see..
So with that - Let's bid September a fond adieu. Time to roll on and embrace the holiday season! (Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas.)
So throw the confetti, blow the horns, shoot off the fireworks..
Outside of losing some of my income, chipping a tooth, and ending a few dating prospects - I have survived. (Granted it's only 9:18am.. ) But a girl can dream, right?
