On the road again....

So on one of my many times driving, this is what I saw on the way home :) I thought it was beautiful so yes, I did take it while driving, but I wasn't really watching the camera so this was the 3rd try :) I thought you might all enjoy some sunshine!

And now....9 months of healing: The Aftermath

It's been a little over 9 months since the break-up. Some people have had babies during this time, some have started businesses, some have started new relationship.....I have learned to be myself again. It's a great feeling to wake up in the morning and to know who you are. It has taken me plenty of time to figure this out (and I'm sure I still have a lot to learn), but at this point in my life, I feel content. That's not to say that I'm not stressed out or I don't get crabby or irritated with things, but overall, when I lay down at night, I can fall asleep knowing that tomorrow is another day.

This is definitely a change from previous posts. I will tell you that I'm not fully healed and that I still hurt some days, but those days are fewer and farther between. I continue to have the wonderful support of my parents and even you guys who read my rants and raves (and even keep checking on a blog that isn't updated!!!) so I appreciate it. I have found out that I have wonderful friends who care very much about me.

So I have picked up most of the pieces and have tried to put them back together, but in the process have realized that maybe those pieces feel for a reason. Maybe there are new pieces that will form in order to make the new me. I can't be the same person I was the day of the break-up and therefore, those new pieces will form and I'll always hang on to the fallen pieces to remember where I came from and how I have reached this new point.

We interrupt our previously scheduled topic....

To Remember. Please take a minute today to remember the victims and survivors of 9/11. I know most people will post about this today and I don't want to make it flashy or over the top, but if you take a minute to read this, please take another minute to remember. Six years.

I remember that I was sleeping when the first plane hit. My dad came in to wake me up and said "a plane just hit the world trade center." I thought he may have been delusional. But I got up and went by the TV. Sure enough, the tower had been hit. That poor pilot, I thought. He must have lost control and had engine problems or had a heart attack.

Then the next plane hit. WHAT IS GOING ON? I yelled. My dad was in awe. We couldn't believe this was happening. We had family living near the world trade center. He watched most of it from his apartment window. Saw people jumping out of the WTC.

I had to drive to class that day. Forty minutes to get to campus. What a long forty minutes. The TVs all over campus had the news coverage on to keep students up to date on what was happening. The pentagon was hit. The plane in the field (what had gone wrong there?) It was all too much to be a coincidence.

So take a minute today to just remember....

Harry Potter

Well, I finished Harry Potter (actually I finished a while ago but haven't been in the mood to post lately). I have lots of things I am ready to say and post on here, but wanted to start with the most important:

Peanut helped me finish it up. It was a great book and I know others have posted what they think, so I won't use a lot of space for it. I really enjoyed the book and felt that JK did a good job of doing what she could to tie everything up. There are still questions I have, but also know that the movie will be interesting to see.

Up next for posting: 9 months of healing: The Aftermath
