Don’t Say Quitters Never Prosper

11 Apr

So it’s been over a year since I gave up on this blog. The plan was to do a blog post everyday for 365 days. I made it to 99. Which, to be honest with you all, is longer than I expected to last. In the end I was in a rough time of my life. All I did was work. And I obsessed about people knowing how much I was working and I focused on it to an almost breaking point. I cried a lot that year. I had virtually no friends, and nothing to look forward to. I was so lonely. I wouldn’t say I was clinically depressed, I would never assume to know what true depression feels like. But I would say that I was in a version of my own definition of depression. I was sad and lonely and afraid of life. I wanted things to happen to me but I didn’t want to do them. There was a war going on within me everyday. I would tell my self to buck up and then run into a corner and cry my eyes out for hours because I hated myself. I wanted to change. But I was terrified of change. You see how that can tear a person apart from the inside? Each post on here was a grasp at the idea of happiness, that my life had some weight to it. I was hopeful, but not mentally ready for any of it.

Since I quit this blog so much has happened. Surprisingly if i had kept this blog up you and I would have seen me transform into a different person. It didn’t happen right away I stayed in my black hole for many more months after the last post of this blog. So here’s a recap of what happened to me after this blog.

Work. Cry. Black hole. Work. Cry. Black hole.

I went to Europe for 2 months. 14 Countries, a Cruise. Great food. Pseudo-great company. Great memories.

I was highly liked by many friends we made there, boosting my self-confidence to slightly above self-loathing.

I came to the realization that I love to travel.

I became really good friends (I believe the term is BFFs) with a girl I work with.

we got tattoos together. It would be my first. I don’t have any more. Yet.

I got dangerously close to being in a relationship with someone I’ve had a crush on for years.

My friend forced me to join Tinder. I met a really great guy. He became my boyfriend.

I’m in love.

I got an iPhone 5s!

That’s about it. I’m still contemplating the future of this blog. But as I type these words I feel myself releasing something. I don’t know what it is about typing this post but it feels so comfortable to me. And I feel myself wanting to continue. So something will come of this. Just not sure what yet. I’d love to do a travel blog, but I don’t have the time off or the resources to travel often enough. But we’ll see, something will come of it. I have hopes, and optimism for once.

In the end 22 was a good year. And the day I turned 23 I asked the world (via Facebook) to give me an even better year at 23. Within the month I started talking to my boyfriend. 23 has already been a great year, and I have so much more in store.

I leave you with something I just created out of boredom, I took the photo in the background, its of The Amalfi Coast. I thought it was vaguely related to the subject of this post.

PHOTO #99: More Socializing

I went out with friends two days in a row? Yep. I know sounds crazy to me too. We went out to support my work friend who owns a Karaoke company. I had attempted to go a couple of times before but had failed, miserably. So, this photo was taken the second successful time going. Now mind you, I do not sing. Unless it’s in the comfort of my own home, or somewhere no one else can hear me. I just go to hear all my other friends make fools of themselves, or to surprise me with a pretty good voice. Either way I had a really good time.

I’ve always wondered what turns people onto Karaoke bars though. What makes you want to go up on a stage and sing a song in front of a bunch of strangers that are judging not only your song choice but also your voice. I could never do it. Then again it does look fun. I just wish I wasn’t so scared. Maybe when I get around to making a bucket list it’ll end up on there. Or I might make it a resolution for the new year to quit being so shy and just try something! It will take a lot of coaxing.

In other news, I may already be trading in my iPhone 3GS for an iPhone 4GS!! My manager has a friend who is trying to sell his, and he’s going to give it to me for $50! Which is the same as what I paid for the 3. So, I am super-duper excited. But won’t be getting it until monday.

I.

Can’t.

Wait.

PHOTO #48: My Gold-member

So, I bought an iPhone case on Ebay. When I had a Blackberry, so many days ago, I had done the same thing. Except it wasn’t a gold case, I had changed the actual Housing of the phone. And, if you don’t know what that means…too bad. Get with the times. And, that’s what I was known for. Having a metallic gold phone. So, when I made the switch to an iPhone, I knew I had to keep up the gold. But, I’m not sure whether it is possible to change the housing on one, so I just went for a case. I am %100 satisfied with the purchase. I think it was only 5ish dollars. Free shipping.

I. Love. Ebay.

My brother came by to pick up the mask I made him. He apparently loved it. I wasn’t there. I was at work. Either way I’m glad, because I am very self-concious, especially when making things for other people. I am always worried they won’t like it, or they will find something wrong with it. I guess that’s just another thing I will have to add to the list of things I need to work on…And typing. I suck at typing. I am really slow, and I only use a couple of fingers so they start to cramp up because I am straining to reach them to all the letters…I can spell fine, and my grammar is great. Though I do go a bit overboard with commas I find…and I have no idea when the semi-colon is necessary. I tend to just let the computer correct me with those ones…

My theatre is getting Cloud Atlas on friday. I am, in part, excited and scared. I really want to see the film. But, I just know that the crowds that show up for this film are going to be hectic. This movie has a lot of buzz. Not only that but it is a super long film. Almost three hours, I think. Hopefully I will survive. I wonder if we will have any celebrity sightings. I hope so.

PHOTO #32: New Phone!

Just a quick one for the 6th, but I GOT A NEW PHONE!! I have had my Blackberry for a long while now, and I still love it. But, if you couldn’t tell I’m looking for some changes in life. So, this I thought was a good start. My friend was getting rid of his and told me he’d sell it to me for $50.00 so I said sure! It is only the 3G but I don’t mind. I can already tell it’s better than my Blackberry. The only thing I think I’m going to miss is BBM. That was really convenient, and unlimited. So, that’s about it. Geddy Lee from Rush came in today, he comes in a lot though so thats nothing special. Also a host from MTV, but I didn’t see who it was.

I am dyeing my hair tonight so Tomorrow will be an update on that, I am both excited and nervous for how it turns out. Wish me luck!
