It's times like these you learn to live again....


This weekend seemed like it was a year long because I just did so much & a decision changed my life. A bar concert, meeting CJ’s best friend, Dim Sum in NYC china town with CJ, getting lost in the city looking for parking, going to the Metropolitan museum of Art, wine & pizza, & then 2 family parties of Cj’s all in 3 days. But after all of that I now have a boyfriend. A real facebook status, “In a relationship” boyfriend. I haven’t had a real boyfriend where it wasn’t just a drama disaster or even where we called each other boyfriend & girlfriend since I believe 2003. Yeah I know that’s a long time. After the weekend we had, CJ asked me if he had scared me away from all his family parties he took me too & was like I really like you & I don’t want to be rejected & I want you to be in my life…so I just blurted out,

“Of course you didn’t scare me away, I would love to be your girlfriend.”

Early on Sunday we had that awkward conversation of, “Hey Mel what do I introduce you as.” I had said just tell them I’m the girl your dating. Went in dating, came out a couple. It was a great moment & there was even fireworks at the end of the night. Hehe.

Fourth of July festivities started this weekend so we got to lay on grass later & see an awesome fireworks & walk through the crowds holding hands. I never thought I was the girl who would like that but I guess I am. Our conversations flow, we like the same music, same movies, our parents know each other already so that’s half the battle, & we haven’t even had an argument yet!! *Knock on Wood*

I actually think I got the best compliment ever from CJ:

“I’m shocked that even after a month of dating you’re not a psycho. I’m not used to that.”

Apparently girls where we live are psychos? Nahh. I thought it was funny. Saturday at the Metropolitian museum was amazing. I want to spend hours & hours there looking in all the rooms & seeing all the beautiful works of art. It’s like you see one gorgeous sculpture & then bam you turn the corner & that goes right out the window because its more beautiful then you can imagine. There is even an Egyptian temple there that took my breath away. Gorgeous. CJ & I walked through the whole first floor & to tell you guys how big it is it took us at least 3 hours. Uh-huh that long. =)


So what to do now? Enjoy. I told CJ that he’s about 80 steps ahead of me while I’m 10 steps into the relationship so I hope we can meet somewhere in the middle & enjoy one another’s companionship at least for a lil while. This is still all new to me. Having a guy who wants to be near me, who will steal a kiss from me when I’m not looking, a guy who wants to show me to his family, a guy who is content with watching a zombie movie, eating pizza, & drinking wine, & someone who told me, “To me your perfect.” It’s surreal to me still to say “Boyfriend”…I look forward to getting used to it. =)


I recently received 2 awards by lovely ladies & I will do them later in the week. It’s so hot here so I’m grateful for air conditioning. Work has been crazy too. I have been handed a big project but I’m going to head into it head first. Everything is so new, but its working. I’m loving times like these….
