9.5 weeks is better than 12 steps

I told my parents I was going to church this morning. Instead, I went to Barnes and Noble and had a delicious, past-due lunch at Panera Bread. It was yummy.

And fun. I could have told my parents I was going to these other places but..I just didn't. I only felt bad when I had to lie when my mom asked, "Did they recognize the dad's at church today?" and "Was church packed?" O well. Forgive me Jesus.

I left the house accidentally without my watch, but I think they actually helped. I got to B&N and picked up this month's Glamour, and a copy of A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle. Glamour is my favvvv magazine, and I heard A New Earth was supposed to be life changing. The first page wasn't really speaking to me, personally. Thursday's Oprah was pretty good, about positive thinking and sh*t, so I figured I should read this book that everyone's been reading, including my sis. I do believe in the Secret, but my earth is good for right now. Not ready for a new one yet. I have been going back to my positive thinking and I finally pulled my vision board out the box its been packed up in since I moved back home. I put it on the wall adjacent to my bed.

Friday night I spent the night with an old friend, I don't know if that's the proper name for my ex-boyfriend of almost 3 years. Anyways, the night was interesting. Spent a long time, possibly too much time recounting the days of being young and foolish, which we both realized were yet to be over, as we continued to act even more young and foolish. I did good, I have a problem running off at the mouth when it comes to my heart, but I tried my best to keep most of what i had to say (that shouldn't be said) to myself. We agreed I have a big heart, I've known but never really thought about it, which is for better...and for worse. Fun times though. Trying to remember it's summer.

Last night I saw few of my lovely besties. They were headed out to the club, I passed...on what sounds like was a great night. I headed over a few hours before they left to catch up and attempted to assist in making them more beautiful than they already are. I didn't go was an all white party, I didn't have much to wear and..I couldn't spare $20 for a ticket out of my budget (14 days til pay dayyyy!!!!).

I'm looking forward to going to work tomorrow amazingly...this is my last full week of summer school! Finally. A friend of mine is coming to visit me this week, so I'm highly anticipating their arrival :)

I'm relieved to know the weather here is finally drifting away from the 100+ degrees a week or so ago. I know it's summer but...that was like hell! Maybe I can make it back to the pool this week without roasting.

Okay. I think I'm done here. It's Sunday that means Post Secret.
