I love reminiscing. The best is when I read something I wrote years ago. Sometimes I giggle at my childishness, but other times I think wow, that wasn’t half bad. I decided I would post some of my old compositions here as part of my tribute to the past series Enjoy. Maybe you will be inspired to dig up your old blogs.

Night LifeSo, I started my transition here about 6 months ago. In the last 6 months I have escaped this place in every which way I possibly could. I have taken numerous trips to Texas, Portland, Indy and Sin City. That wears on a girl’s body not to mention pocketbook. I realized I can’t consistently run away from where I live.
Tonight I thought I would take my first big leap into doing the hardest solo thing ever: going to a bar alone….I can do just about anything alone (incl. eating Valentines dinner at a restaurant full of couples alone- which I did one year), but going to a bar or club alone just seems extremely uncomfortable. I would rather go with a semi acquaintance then go by myself. Who knows what can happen to a girl if she goes alone?
I definitely miss the weekly Saturday night ritual I had in Dallas…
7 pm get dolled up
8 pm (usually 8:30 for me since I am a fashionably late person) dinner/ drinks/tapas
10 pm bar or club for the rest of the night…
I got a couple texts from people today that had not realized I officially moved here. They included invitations for all of the above. *sigh* I wrote back: “sorry I live in MO now”
So now, here it is….a couple hours later from my attempted leap, and I have just chickened out.
