Get Your Life On!

Yesterday, after a busy day at work I decided to ‘do me’ and did some shopping, a little beauty treatment and met my best friend for dinner and drinks at the Negril in Chelsea. The shrimp creole and mojitos are always delish and what better than to let my worries and stress be blown away by my best friend’s amusing tales of her adventures in dating and war stories.

As I have written before I have a tendency to stagnate, stay home, find comfort in the familiar and then get fraught with anxiety when I come to the realization that time stands still for no one.

After dinner and a few drinks, she revealed some of her deepest fears and concerns that have been plaguing her lately and I did too. Afterwards, I just wanted to hug her and tell her how connected I felt to her and that she would never be alone as long as I was around.
I went home with a mojito headache but happy. This morning my boyfriend drove to work and I swear I felt I could conquer the world.
Tonight we have tickets to see Chris Rock at the Garden, that should be fun – I want to have fun and be ALIVE!

This should be an interesting weekend, I have an audition at Macy’s tomorrow – I was selected for their Macy’s ‘Bra Stories’ casting, I also am having drinks after work with some of my coworkers who I only have know through emails. Saturday’s plan include my cousin’s bridal shower, the Nuyorican Poetry event at Town Hall, and then another friend’s party after that –

Bring on – May!
