November 7, 2016

I am behind on posting....if I were honest with myself, and you, I'd tell you that I have a partially written post dating back to February of this year. It just so happens to be the Junior League ODI post....then there's my trip to New Orleans complete with pictures that still needs to be written, my photo shoot from September, life in general, Junior League Super Saturday, and I really could go on....but I won't, because today, I have another post in mind.

The other day, I had to order a new driver's liscense because my current one will expire soon. It was a very surreal moment for me...

Rewind 9 years ago....November 7, 2001. I had just turned 21, and I celebrated in a very typical way that one celebrates, but I digress. I remember picking up that liscense, and seeing the date, November 7, 2010. My immediate thought is that I would be 30 the next time I'd need a new liscense. (I can really remember where I was at that moment, and weird)

30 seemed like such a long way from where I was at the time. I imagined what life would be like, (reality lends a very different picture btw), and where I'd was just so weird to think of myself as ever being 30.....but, what a difference 9 years make....NINE YEARS!!!

In about a week and a half, I'll be 30 years old!!!!! THIRTY!!!!! I don't feel 30...if 30 feels like something. Heck, I still feel 21. I live a busy, active life. In fact, I love my life. Sure I have my bad moments, but overall, at the end of the day, I can count my blessings, and see God's hand. I don't think I look 30...I am still carded...which by the way, I'm becoming more and more thankful for! I don't even know if life changes much for me because I am about to be 30.

Sure, I wonder when 'it' will happen, but that's another topic for another day....

I have many hopes for this 30th year of life..and I'm working on a post entitled, "If I knew then what I know now..."

Oh, and for the record...yes, I will be 36 by the time I need a new liscense....we won't even go there...I've learned that it's easier to be ready for never know what's headed your way!

Have a great hump day folks...2 more days, and I'm with my family in Mississippi....I can't wait!!

Friday Randoms

Have you ever wondered why Sonic is the only fast food establishment that provides peppermints? Classy I tell ya!

Today is Friday, game day Friday! There are exactly three more games this football season, PTL! Every time I attend a game, I mentally thank my parents for coming to every single game without fail....EVERY. SINGLE. ONE!!! They folks, deserve a medal!

My house looks like a tornado hit it.....literally. In fact, when I walk in, I get anxious. This will change. Tonight. Whilst I'm drying my hair and singing to the tunes of my iPod! Speaking of my iPod, a song came on this morning whilst I was doing my make-up that took me back to an Alpha Step Show after y'all remember that party? The one where we wore camo??! It was by far THE best after party to date...anywho...I took a moment to bust out my dance moves...because, it's how I roll in the mornings...really it is...I just may take my show on the road! I'm that good...oh I kid!

Anywho...I just thought I'd pop in here and spread a little I'm so glad it's Friday love...oh, and 9 weeks of school is over, and it's three weeks until my birthday, oh, and 2 weeks before I see my family in Mississippi!!! Have a great weekend!

The Ugly Side of Life...

I have been in a really crappy mood lately....not just a couple of days, but for a while now. I've always been fairly good at masking my feelings and such, so much so to my detriment sometimes, and I can't tell you how many times I've arrived on this blog to write about my days, but couldn't for fear of sounding like an ungrateful spoiled brat.

So, I offer you my disclaimer...this post will not be filled with feel good messages, pics of my life, or my normal wit....if you're looking for that, come back another day. But today, you're hearing from a girl who doesn't have it all figured out...who's annoyed with selfish people, and who's sometimes really tired of turning the other cheek!

I know I've written this before, but I am somewhat easily annoyed by people at times. My patience is very thin with those who can't see beyond their noses, or who don't do what I would do in a situation, because you know, I am perfect (I kid...really).

I've always heard that when people ask you how you're doing, they don't really mean it...or they don't really want to hear all that you have to say....this has hindered me from being totally open and forthcoming when I'm asked, because like most of us, I really don't like rejection, and when I take the time to share my feelings, and you brush them off...I get really annoyed, (there's that word again), and it totally makes me make a mental note for the future. But, is that the right thing to do? Is it what Jesus did? Aye yae yae....

I chuckle on a daily basis because people think I am so put! My life is not perfect, I make huge mistakes, I hurt people, people hurt me, I struggle with sin, and just like you, I have those fears, anxieties, and times when I need someone to listen to me, yes me, and not judge or want me to be ok, but just listen.

I'm not quite sure how to end this, and I'm not looking for sympathy or pity...just merely commenting on the things that have had my feathers ruffled here lately! I do want you to know that I know how blessed I am...I know that there are people who would give hand and foot to have my issues, and I have great people in my life...really I know this! Sometimes life is not cute, or convenient, or in my case, fair...and no matter how hard I want to, I can never not be who I am! Until next time...
