Start All Over. Refreshed.

A couple of things...

I am so unbelievably busy at my new Creative job-and I am having an absolute blast with it! It's so nice to attend to a job that changes everyday...It really is a lot of fun. Although I am going to miss News when I am done in a week.

Secondly, life has really taken quite the turn for me in the last couple of weeks. I think it has something to do with my recent disposal of commiting to anything but myself.

All in all, I am enjoying the world right now. Something seems so hopeful about it.

This Day Needs to End!

I advise all you wonderful readers to not ever fall into a "slump" like the one I've fallen into recently. It involves heavy food consumption and a whole lot of cuddling up under the warmth of a blanket in bed while watching large doses of Sex and the City seasons one through five. I do this by myself, mind you.
I lead quite the exciting life!
I think the cause of this involves the fact that I've made many mistakes in my life and the time I spend alone in bed while watching the ladies of SATC cry about ex boyfriends and careers, helps me to cope with the pain.
Hopefully tomorrow morning my life will get a little bit more exciting.
Please, please, please.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

“Let’s not say another word; let’s just go to sleep”

My spirits felt a little low this evening so I decided to do something to cheer myself up.
I rented a movie; but not any movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
It seemed like a good film choice: No die-hard special effects, no teeny-bopper actor’s or actresses trying to fit in with slutty society. Just a good story. Simplicity is what I was looking for.
Simplicity. What does this word even mean anymore? I thought I knew-but I really don’t have a clue.
For Holly Golightly, it’s so easy for her to just crawl in a man’s window, have a nice conversation with him, a drink and a cigarette, and then crawl into his bed and say “Let’s not say another word; let’s just go to sleep”. Keep in mind-she just met this guy that very day.
I know it’s just a movie-but it seems so easy for her to open herself up to a complete stranger. Why does it have to be so hard for me to open myself up to somebody I know?
I’m being naive. I know the reasons. But please, I’m begging you reasons. Go away and let me be happy. Truly, infinitely happy. Please.
