What a successful start to the week!!! I’m on a roll. I went to the gym, saved some money by doing my own manicure, & talked CJ about just chilling out. I love the days where we just snuggle on the couch & watch our TV shows. It doesn’t always have to be a big production. Anywho there is a roaring storm outside now in skies of NY so I’m going to brief today with my 30 days of awesomness. Rolling…

Day #4: Your Favorite Book
1. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
When the movie came out I fell in love with this story & had to have to more. At the time I was in love with a man obsessed with time travel sort of speak. He loved a certain movie called Back to the Future. In this heart-wrenching story this woman named Clare was picked by an accidental time travel of a man into a meadow when she was a lil girl. The movie btw is the G-rated version of the story. The book broke my heart, rebuild it, sliced through it, but then I came out realizing stuff about my future with that idiot I thought I loved. I’d be waiting forever for another chance to have a moment with him never knowing when it would happen. I wanted to be someone’s big event & be able to cherish it whenever I wanted. That life lesson I really needed.
2. Dracula by Bram Stoker
You would think most of the story would be told by Jonathan Harker & Mina Harker or even Reinfield. Nope. The story is actually mostly written as diary entries about Dracula by the drug addict Dr. Seward. Name doesn’t ring a bell huh? That’s what I thought. He is in the movie version as a man going after Mina’s friend Lucy, but he’s such a big part of the book. The book is ghoulish & dark but it grabs a hold of you & doesn’t let go til the last few words. Very good. I recommend it for a Halloween reading treat! =)
Yeah I know that was two but I also love the books, “Portrait of Jennie” written by Robert Nathan & the “The Poisonwood Bible” by Barbara Kingsolver.

Day 04 - Something you have to forgive someone for.
I have 3 friends who in the past year have done some real childlish things. One won’t stop to see me when she passes where I live right by, one will blurt out anything even if its your personal business to an open room of people, & one is always late & won’t let you know what’s really going on with her. I’m not completely grown up myself so I have to forgive this caddy childishness. I’m trying to forgive my ex for being a child too. People think when you turn 18 you’re an adult. Sometimes that’s not the case. I’m not saying that you can’t still go play lazer tag at 25 years old but people need to grow up but it happens to everyone differently. I hope they grow up more in the future.
Alrighty before this storm knocks out my power, goodnight everyone! =)
