Okay, the melancholy is leaving and the Christmas spirit is starting to kick in.
It could have something to do with the *amazing* rum cake I had this evening.
In other news, I am officially a “paid $9 an hour” girl now! Life is pretty good. However, January will be the test month to see if I can survive rent, groceries and government examinations.
One of my resolutions so far? Write more and buy less. Or, when I buy something, give away something else I don’t need anymore. Simplify, simplify would be a good motto to undertake.
I thought the awkward stage of my life was over, but apparently not. I don’t mean my teenage years, I mean the question I get asked when I meet someone new: “What do you do?” and all I’m thinking is “Yikes, that is a loaded question; are you sure you want the answer?”
Yeah, I thought that was over now that I have a job and am starting to form a life for myself. But, as evidenced this evening, my life story is still quite the topic-changer in party conversation and I can’t get away with telling just one part of it. No, it ends up that I monopolize the entire conversation without meaning to.
But, on the bright side, by doing so, I’m gathering a bigger list of people who want to buy my book. 🙂
Here’s to more rum cake!
