So I've never had a blog before. I'm not entirely surewhat compelled me to start one. I guess it's because I want a least some record of my life, even if I'm the only one who reads it.To be able to say, "I was here. I existed. I lived." Plus I think it will be theraputic, to work through my day out loud.
This may be a very boring blog. It's probably just going to be me talking about my day-to-day stuff. Work, living on my own and all the new challenges that brings, work, my cat, work, my family, Justin. Did I mention work?
So I'm sorry if I bore you. If you don't like it, don't read it. Simple.
I'm sitting at the laundry mat across the street, waiting for our clothes to dry. We have a washer in our apartment, but no dryer. Really not that bad. i've been hanging clothes on radiators and shower curtain rods since childhood. It works. Unfortunetly, I can't do that with most of Justin's clothes, because they come out terribly wrinkled. He has to look very presentable 90% of the time, for work. For those of you who don't know, Justin is my boyfriend of 8 months. We live together above Cafe con Chocolate (Where I work and where we met). He is an opera singer, performing musican and magician, and sings and plays trombone in band called The Business. That's how we met. He was playing his ukulele and singing at the cafe one night in April. (April 2nd actually. YeS I know. Corny that I remember the date. So sue me.) My sister Melissa (who also works at the cafe) called and told me I should come to the cafe. She said this really super talented musician was going to be there.
I wasn't doing so hot then. I barely left the house. I was very close to not going. I don't know why I did. But I did. And my life changed forever.
But thats a story for another time.
I titled this "Brave New World" because I fell that it describes my life now. Everything in my life right now is completely new to me. Having my own apartment, being in love, living with and being in a serious relationship with someone, bills, work, (A LOT OF WORK), etc. The love that I have is so beautifully brave. I feel found and able to do anything.
That's all for now.
