Sooo… this past weekend I went to Key West. Saturday night I went to a local bar and a super excited man approached me and said ” OMG !! I had to come up to you and tell you this, you look just like Jody Watley to me.” Ocassionally, people come up to me and say I look like someone or mistake me for someone they know, it kinda annoys me at times and makes me want to drastically change my look and make it more unique. But his excitement was so infectious I had to entertain him for a bit. I wasn’t too familiar with the singer and how she looked so I went to handy dandy google to look up some images of her on my phone. She is a beauty and I
could see a few similarities in our physical appearance but not like I could be her long lost twin. After a little small chat I gave him a big hug and took a quick pic with him. If his friends weren’t waiting for him I’m sure he would have stayed longer. I’m glad I was a little blast from the past for him, those are always fun.
Yes, I will gladly sign your man boobs sir
BTW… fashion from the 80’s…. Eeek
I’ve only been at this job for 4 months and I already hate it. Don’t get me wrong I learned a lot and met a lot of great people and I was very thankful for the opportunity. Good pay, paid training, and great health benefits. But, I just couldn’t do it, it wasn’t my niche, being stuck in a cubicle for hours was like torture for my Gemini nature. Ok!..lets decorate my cubicle, maybe that will help. NOPE! Think about the money your making and the bills what you can pay off and all the clothes and shoes that you can buy, that will help. NOPE!. I felt like my spirit and energy was totally off balanced. My unhappiness began to spread like a plague and trickle down into different parts of my life. I began to ask myself, is this life? is this how I want to live my life? do I have to just suck it up and face reality?. January 25, 2013 was my last day at the job, it was unplanned it just somehow happened, like I was in a dream. My mouth was moving but it seemed to be controlled by someone else. Still in shock I drove to my mothers house for a hug. Those hugs from your mom make everything seem better, dont they?. That day I decided to live for me with no regrets, follow my dreams and never look back. So here I am writing my first blog post
Follow me on this journey and see where my passion for fashion and traveling takes me.
