wAllegedly, I wrote a blog about a year ago which a friend of mine has been trying to find. She claims that the blog talked about how I felt about leaving NYC for Mexico...about how I adjusted and that it contained words and expressions which only I use. I never read my blogs again after...

When I was a kid, I imagined my life to be filled with adventures for me to share with my family...traveling, activities that everyone would love doing...if for no other reason than just because we were doing them together. I never really considered my life to be void of other people. I'm a huge fan... Continue Reading →
I promised myself that I was not going to write in my blog this week but instead to spend the week really self-reflecting on myself. I have come to the conclusion that I am as strange a nut as anyone else. I've always accepted from people their own confessions about being different...whether that be that... Continue Reading →
When I was a kid, my brother and I would go off to school everyday, leaving my mother home by herself. We knew that she would always have lunch with my grandfather, who lived downstairs from us. On days when my aunt did not have to work, she would join them. How did we know... Continue Reading →

Around this time of year, I tend to spend more time alone. My friends all have families and spouses that they tend to spend the holidays with. And while many of them would probably love to see me, I hate to impose on anyone at this time of year, thinking that they should be with their families anyway.
Every once in a while, I might see what I imagine to be a happy mother with a beautiful child in stroller or carriage and the thought might cross my mind...wow, that really would have been so cool, to have become a mother. But I'm pretty sure there are a lot more women out there of all ages who look at me and my life who say to themselves, "Shit, I wish I had stayed single so I could have had her life."
...because I need to get off. I have always been the tough one among my friends. Not that I'm unnecessarily daring or anything. I've more been the one who had supported my friends in accomplishing things while accomplishing the same things along side them...like saying..."Look if I can do it, so can you!" So whether...
