Well this is growing up...
Only yesterday I was singing a "Part of your World" from The Little Mermaid...& then the 20 some odd years of my life rushed back to me. When we're little we want to grow up so badly & I still am SO glad I'm 24 not 4 or even 14 but sometimes I wish I was back to those ages because making decisions is one of the hardest thing a grown-up has to do. Decisions that will affect our well-being, our bank accounts, & pretty much all aspects of our physical & mental lives.
Last night I made a decision Not to go to Las Vegas for vacation because the friend I would go with would literally drain my bank account & drive me completely insane.
I'm happy in my decision to not go to Vegas & maybe do a smaller trip to the Jersey shore or Canada or go to the Poconos in PA( my aunt has a house there) because I work wayy to hard for my money & I don't believe I'd have fun with my friend. Her & I are from two different worlds. I can't do it. I just can't. I also don't trust her & her ways of thinking deserve a post of their own so I just don't live in the fantasy world that she does. If I stay somewhere local I won't need a vacation from my vacation. I'm not made of money & I think she is basically. It sucks but I'm going to try & make the best of it!
Cj & I are going into New York City tomorrow to go to either the Metropolitian Museum of Art of the Natural History Museum. I'm excited. I want to show him the Ghostbusters Fire House while were there & go to Canal Street & China Town & Little Italy &....there is so much to do there & I think I'll enjoy the day with him EVER so much more than that Vegas trip that has me panicing. Vacation is not supposed to be filled with panic or dreading that next credit card bill. You want to enjoy yourself & be happy. I'm trying for that goal.
My favorite fortune cookies are the ones that say like, "You will be happy for many moons" or the ones that are like, "You will cherish your moments" or "Walk smart & be healthy." It makes me smile. I want a happy life & a happy fortune & can't be bogged down by ridiclousness. Reconignition of drama before it crosses your path has become my mission lately so I can avoid it. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that it all pans out! It's all a part of growing up...*Hoping*
I hope you all have a great weekend! Keep hydrated & have some fun!! =)
