2007: The Year of the Bird FLU
This year hasn’t started with a bang. Actually it’s started off real bad. I was really sick for about 5 weeks. Which brought to February. I was finally feeling better and then I got another small cold. I think I’m in the clear now but str8 boyfriend just came back from a trip with the nastiest FLU I’ve ever seen. Hopefully I don’t get it. It looks real bad! That reminds me of another downer this year so far. I had a big crush on a str8 coworker (str8 boyfriend). Those are always bad. It’s not like he’s gay and he rejected me because he didn’t like me. But yet the self-esteem suffers!
I don’t know if this happens to anyone else but when someone takes a picture of me and I look at it, I always think, who’s that fat bastard in the picture. HELLO it’s me! I’ve been trying to do this exercise/diet thing for a while now. I don’t know if it’s all the cold’s that I’ve gotten recently but I am so fucking tired all the time. By the time I get home I just vegitate and then go to sleep to wake up to then go to work. It feels like my life has gone into this rut of a routine. And I hate it. I have lost a couple of pounds on the colds I was so maybe getting this flu from str8 boyfriend wouldn’t be so bad after all!
I’ve really got to get out of this rut. I think I’m doing a lot better on the crush thing. I’m working through that one. Now I have to work on my fitness! My goal is to loose 40-50 pounds by the time I go back home to Miami to visit. That’s in Sept/October so I have a couple of months to kick ass. I’ve been taking Lola for hour long walks everyday up and down the hills. I want to get to the point where I go to the gym in the mornings and then walk Lola at night for an hour. Str8 boyfriend and I are starting to do weights during lunch which can only help!
The only uplifting part of this year is that I’ve had a musical re-awakening. Nicola turned me on to M.I.A. and I’ve been playing the shit out of that record for a while now. I think all my friends are sick of me. It’s funny because when the album came out a couple of years ago I wasn’t into it. Now it’s so infectious it’s crazy. She’s got a new single out called Bird Flu. It’s crazy good! I can’t wait for her new album.
It’s amazing how music can really put you in a mood, help you work out emotions, and eventually get you out of a bad mood. Thank you iTunes! I don’t know what I’d do without my iPod and iTunes! I also downloaded the new Macy Gray album Big. It’s amazing! I love her. Definately check out Treat Me Like Your Money and Strange Behavior. Awesome songs. I do really think the worst of the funk mood is over for me. As we start spring and LA starts heating up with the Summer sun I get into a much better mood. Soon it will be Pride season and I’ll be real happy!
We are hitting Vegas for my 30th birthday. Which also depresses me a little. Not Vegas but the 30 part. I can’t believe. I still feel like I’m 18 years old. 30 seems so old. It seems so adult. The inside definately does not match the outside. But I’m definately glad we are celebrating it in Vegas. I love that town! And we are staying at the skanky gay hotel. My favorite! The best part is that it’s during pride!
Finally I got a new digital camera. My old camera had an issue with the memory stick holder and I just decided it was time for a new one. It’s so sleek and blue! I love it. It’s amazing. I’m definately going to take tons of pictures while I’m in Vegas. And today I just got the cutest tripod for it. It’s called the GorillaPod. It’s flexible and you can wrap it around trees, poles, or anything. Check it out at their website: joby.com.I’m also making a bigger effort to update my site and write in my blog more. I notice that I’m in a better mood when I do that. It’s therapy. I have tons of galleries to update. I got my laptop back from service today, BTW Apple Care you rock! They fixed my computer in one day and shipped it back the next day. So tonight I might spend the night updating the website.
And excersing of course!
