And then I turned 28

back in August.

I don't want to say my whole birthday was a complete disaster - the day part was good, I had some good friends at dinner (and I got to hold baby CJ for like an hour, which was really the best gift of all), but the after dinner part is where it all fell apart. After a quick phone call to my mom...involving tears (I don't really want to get too into that), I pulled my shit together, decided to salvage the evening and headed to Croc's surprise party.  It was a good time, and when I got home I promptly dropped my phone when getting out of my car (I forgot it was in my lap), and ruined the screen...for the third time...in a little over one month. I just starting laughing - you know the whole is this real life, I think I'm losing my mind, why is this happening laugh.

Got up early, stopped by my new fave hangout Dr. Cellphone and got my phone back in working order. Then hit up Jam at QLF, then Westside, because sometimes the only answer is to dance and dance some more!

And then that night I had Steven's 30th bday party to hit up. I had invited an acquaintanceish friend of the boy variety to attend with me in an attempt to buffer any awkwardness I would feel since I wasn't sure how many people I would know, and I hadn't seen Marc in about 1.5 years (and naturally things didn't end on a good notes) and figured he might be there. Well, the boy basically vanished (which is rude, at least cancel on me!), but it was still a good time. It was so great to spend some time with Jess, Amanda, and Mandy. And of course baby Charlie!

Anyway, now that I summarize bday weekend happenings, I figured I'd get to what this year is already like, and what I plan to do.

1. One theme that's become apparent over these last 4 months is that this year is going to be full of people disappointing me and being rude to me. I'm not going to go into detail because I'd really rather not remember these instances.
2. Because of this already reoccurring theme, I've learned that I will grow in patience and forgiveness this year.
3. I've decided to try more things (new, some old) this year. And I may even document it here! (oooohhhh, ahhhhhh) But maybe not because sometimes I just like to keep it all private . (Who is this person? Surly not the girl that used to over share on her blog!)
