Yesterday at a meeting, I told my friend that my life was boring when she asked me what I’ve been up to. For a long time, I used to associate my dating life with whether or not my life was interesting. Yeah…I’m glad it took me 30 some odd years to come to my senses. On the contrary, my life is far from boring.
First, let’s talk about my job. Some folks don’t like their jobs. But not me. And I’m not just saying that. I love what I do. Some of my co-workers find it hard to believe when I say that I’m glad I’m there. Don’t get me wrong-there are definitely aspects that I wish I could change (nothing’s perfect). But on the grand scheme of things, my job is pretty snazzy.
Second, I’m still super involved. I serve on a few boards, I’m becoming more involved with my local sorority chapter, and I’m heavily involved with part of the planning for the DC Black Theatre Festival (which I always love!), that is scheduled for the end of June.
Third, I have a social life. Just this weekend, I went to happy hour, the Wizards/Bulls game, AND an NFL playoff watch party. I had fun! I hung out with some old friends and met some new folks. And I played Spades, which I haven’t done in awhile. And though my partner and I didn’t win, I know if we had kept playing the second round we would have redeemed ourselves!
Lastly, I actually DO have a hot date this Friday. It’s someone I’ve known for awhile, and I’m glad this opportunity presented itself for us to hang out so we could get to know each other better. We’re going to hear one of my FAVORITE artists. Oh, who is it, you may ask??? Well, it’s me! 🙂 It’s been awhile since I’ve taken myself on a date, unless you count me sitting on my couch watching “Scandal” and “The Walking Dead”. To be honest, I definitely thought about inviting my friends to go with me…but I decided not to. It’s been way too long since I’ve gone out by myself and enjoyed my own company. And in an effort to take care of me in 2015, I feel like I can be a little selfish.
So, as you can see (and you being me), my life is far from boring. I have stuff going on. And my social calendar for January is continuing to fill up as we speak…well, as I type this. In any event, I charge all of you to take yourself out on date. If there is something you enjoy doing, go do it. Don’t invite your girls, your boys, or your boo. Go by yourself. And rediscover how great of a person you are. Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
