Money Spent: $0
For months and most of winter, I had shunned away from my friends, from events and from life outside the walls of my apartment. Dealing with my finances, with myself and all of the reflecting, I decided to be my own best friend, and just take good care of myself – or just be by myself, I don’t know what’s more true.
But now, it’s summer, and nice out. And even though my self-confidence is a little off because of the size my ass decided to grow (at least TWO sizes bigger than ALL the pants in my closet, I might add), I feel more OK than I have say four to five months ago.
And so, today, after work, me and my ass click-clacked our heels to Williamsburg, where a friend of mine designed the interiors of new-built condo. And they were having a party, throwing the overprized apartments on the market, and that came with champagne and so much lobster, doubt there’s any left in Brooklyn tonight.
The first week at my new job is almost over. I can’t believe how fast that went… how at ease I am. True, I have no bosses around, no colleagues to consider and there’s still much to do to set up the office… but I was so proud to tell my boss this morning that I managed to land 3 presentations at really high end and established Interior Design Offices… that’s a confidence booster right there.
My friends all noticed how much more relaxed I looked. They also notice that “euhm…. Did you gain a little weight in the ass area?” – which is also true.
I know my body will eventually adjust to the lack of nicotine that used to speed up my metabolism. My work outs and healthy eating habits will soon kick in too. Life will babble its course and I will ride on its waves.
It’s Thursday, I met some great new people and bonded with some old friends. I laughed while sitting outside and watching the Manhattan skyline get ready for dusk…
And I said to myself: isn’t she lovely?
And she sure as hell is.
