My existence is a life-long treasure hunt.


In no particular order…

I saw my favorite singer of all time perform and she gave me a shout-out, came down and sang to me holding my hand, and I got a picture with her afterward. How many people can say that about their number 1 favorite artist? Oh yes. I will never forget!

I finished all my coursework for my Masters degree…all I have left are thesis hours and I will be graduating this May….all while working full time.

I became good friends on and off these internets with several lovelies. KB, QQ, Sherri, Terri, Slaus, Bully, Cas, Lina, and FUD’s Momma/MrsMaryMack are the ones who I talk to offline the most. Shout out to all my readers and other blogging homies: MDC (thanks for all your helpful advice), Desiree, BCU, Sydney, Polibohoglam, Alicia/Innyvinny, Chanel, Jaded NYer, Chocolate Orchid, Teri (book coming out in 2010 y’all!), and EVERYONE else y’all have really made my life vibrant. Technology is a mofo ain’t it?

Got a cat. I totally understand cat people now; they are hilarious.

Celebrated my 3 year marriage anniversary

Saw 1 brother graduate college and my sister graduate high school

Was asked to be a bridesmaid in 2 weddings for 2010.

Learned my cousin who I grew up with is pregnant, so I’ll be a cousin-aunt in 2010.

Lost 10 pounds by being more responsible and healthy with food.

Started seriously thinking about my future, investing in my future I should say.

Got in a car wreck (STILL car-less from that, boo!)

Discovered Aya-Strange Flower and Me’shell Ndegeocello-Devil’s Halo (review coming really soon), the films Revolutionary Road, The 9th Gate, Let the Right One In, and Amelie (now one of my favorite films).
