Me


For the past semester I made a promise to treat myself right: physically, psychologically, spiritually - the works!  First, I started to eat healthy and exercise.  Then, I challenged myself with my academic studies.  I made some new friends that I can connect with on an intellectual basis.  In this process, I started writing and producing poetry and short stories.  I have kept these works private and confidential simply because they have a special meaning to me and they matter and make sense to just me.  And finally, I started to take more time to slow down in life -- to lead a more meaningful and purposeful life.

And now that the semester is over I'm taking time to treat myself.  I went to get my hair and make-up professionally done (see picture) and yesterday I went for a facial.  These are things I would NEVER treat myself to because they were "too expensive" or "I really didn't need it."

Now I know I need it.  And now I know how good it feels when you take care of yourself.  

So that's where I've been.  Getting all weird, taking care of myself, and feeling pretty good :)

Thanks for sticking along during the break.
