Happy One

Just because.

Don’t move Baby Don’t move
Awww look at you
I just want to take this in
The moonlight dancing off your skin
Our time Lets take our time
I just want to look in your eyes
and catch my breath
Cuz I just got a feeling

This could be one of those memories
We want to hold on to, cling to,
one we can’t forget
Baby, this could be our last first kiss
The door to forever
What if this was that moment
That chance worth taking
History in the making

Inside, baby inside
Can you feel the butterflies?
Floating all around
Cuz I can sure feel them now
Tonight, maybe tonight
Is a start of a beautiful ride
that will never end
And baby I’ve got a feeling

This could be one of those memories
We want to hold on to, cling to,
One we can’t forget
Baby, this could be our last first kiss
The door to forever
What if this was that moment
That chance worth taking
History in the making

Right here, right now
Holding you in my arms

This could be one of those memories
We want to hold on to, we want to cling to,
One that we can’t forget
Baby, this could be our last first kiss
The door to forever
What if this was that moment
That chance worth taking
History in the making

The Days Leading Up to This

Song Choice for the Moment:
Jason Aldean.The Truth

Around this time a year ago, I would have told you that I was the most
lost I've ever been. I was going through every kind of change you
could think of, literally a rebuild on my life. I had to just sit
down and think about where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do, who I
wanted to meet, but the most important thing was it was about me, for
once, they were my decisions to make.

The year was full of changes. My Major. My School. My Job. My
Face. My Clothes. My Rules. It was difficult at first, I wasn't
sure where to begin or how for that matter, I was scared and
unprepared, but for the first time I was ready to face the music,
wanting to go into the unknown that I had never faced before. It
wasn't till around March when I was fully ready to go the long haul
and not stop till I got there, if stop at all. I had goals,
aspirations, I wanted to have my life on my own path by the end of the

Song Interruption:
Kenny Chesney.Don't Happen Twice

Sure, there were lots of mistakes along the way, but a lot of which I
have overlooked as mistakes or regrets but look at them as a sense of
freedom from the past. Life won't ever be perfect, and for the last 5
years it hasn't been, and one of the first things I still have to
admit to myself is what happened in those years and that they won't
ever fully go away even though I'd love for them to most days. I do
have to make the occasional mistake to find the good parts of life,
and some things some people might call a mistake but I'm thinking
quite the contrary, despite what most of you may think.

Song Interruption:
Van Morrison.Brown Eyed Girl

Through all these crazy changes I've thrown at myself last year, I am
happy to know that he didn't change me as much as thought. I'm still
the same girl I've always been, I was just hidden, nobody really knew
me. I am more open to the world now, willing to meet and talk to new
people, dip my toes in unknown waters, maybe more excited than I used
to be. I am eager to see where I'm taken, not geographically speaking
necessarily, although that helped, leaving Houston wasn't easy but
it's what needed to be done and I love it in my new surroundings.

Song Interruption:
Pat Green.Let Me

San Marcos is beautiful and I don't mind staying here for the time
being, eventually I do want to move to San Antonio and give that a
try, I'm open to almost anywhere in the Lone Star State, I'm loving
this change thing but it's doubtful you could strip me from Texas. I
do miss my family being away from them but I have to grow up, it's
time for independence. I am also a wee bit lonely and miss having
somebody to call my own, but I have to be patient and not be pushy or
rush things, when he comes he'll come and that will be that.

Song Interruption:
Martina McBride.Anyway

With everything that has happened over the last few years, I know that
all those things made me stronger and a better person, I had to really
pull something deep out of me that I didn't even know existed to make
it through all the dark and gloomy days. A lot of people might think
I ran away from the problem rather than face it, but it was more like
escaping a prison that I was trapped in, you shouldn't have to live in
a miserable situation, and I do admit I got myself into and let it go
on as long as it did, but I'm gone and that's all that matters.

Song Interruption:
Brooks and Dunn.She's Not the Cheatin' Kind

The first month of this year is almost finished already and I can tell
it's going to be a good one, a Domi year, finally, it's been too long
since I've gotten one of those. Now let's see where this world takes



Email blogging.


I received my Texas State acceptance letter on Sunday, or well I got it out of the mail on Sunday, I'm doubting it was actually delivered on Sunday.  I actually sat there in the car at the mailbox and opened it, I was so excited, I just knew that's what it had to be.  After leaving UH last semester, I really felt like I was standing on a cliff, I really had no direction.  I just needed that security that I belonged to something, somewhere, and now I have it back again and I couldn't be happier.  I'm so very excited.  I really do love it over there and I really do think it is the best thing for me to leave Houston for a little while, or maybe for good, and start my own story somewhere else.  I'm eager to dance up the hill country, it's going to be a blast.  

I know it took me a lot longer to get to this point then most everybody else I know, but I think I needed the extra time, a few years ago I would have never been brave enough to make such a daring move, through all the hardships I've had to go through, I really think they have made me a stronger person and have lead me to the person I am today.  When I graduated from high school I was still such a child, I've grown up a lot in the last year and I know I'll grow up even more when I move off on my own in January.  I'm going up with Roxanne at the end of October, she is thinking about transferring up too.  =)

I had my final post-op appointment for my surgery on Tuesday, can't believe its over.  I remember back in March when I scheduled the surgery and I was dreading the 4 month wait, then before I knew it the date was here and I had my lovely two week recovery of bruises, bandages, and bad hair.  Now, it's all over with, I'm left with the cutest little nose I could've ever wanted.  It was kind of sad walking out of that office, that place really did change my life.  It's amazing how such a silly little thing like a bump in your nose will conceal the person you really are inside.  I know a lot of people were against the whole thing and didn't want me to go through with it, but it was a decision I made all on my own and to this day I stand by it being one of the best decisions of my entire life (lets not lie, I do look a lot better, it's okay, we can be honest about it).

Plato's stuff is going good, whipping that store into shape, everything looks really clean and organized, it's coming along.  We are having our giant semi annual grab bag sale this Saturday, going to be crazy!

My solo is also near completition, I need to find a way to tie everything together better, but it is looking nice.  I like the storyline I have going for it, nervous though, it's a solo after all.

Fall is a Coming

The next four months are going to be absolutely pyscho for me, I'll literally be going non stop.  First I will start off with a few dates to remember if you are interested:

  • November 20th, All Things Dance Show, HCC Spring Branch Performing Arts Center.  7PM.  Featuring all HCC dance classes.
  • November 21st, Series of Solos, HCC Spring Branch Performing Arts Center.  8PM. Featuring Ensemble members.
  • December 11th and 12th, A Taste of Dance, HCC Spring Branch Performing Arts Center. 8PM.  Featuring Ensemble members.
I'm in all 4 shows so if you could come to any of them that would be great!  Dance overall has been going really good, having lots of fun, enjoying the things I've been learning.  I think I've settled on the Notebook theme for my solo, very pretty and Dominique.  I've been looking into costumes and such, just hope it comes out okay.

I am now working at Plato's again, two jobs should be loads of fun.  I went to do some refresher training at Wilowbrook on Monday and the first thing I felt when I walked in was how old I've gotten.  I guess I just didn't feel as edgy and trendy as everyone else, not that I ever have been that way anyways but just felt like I've grown up a lot since I left.  I just hope I can do some good there while I'm still living here, just want to help.

I've been getting a lot of mail/email from Texas State lately which I hope are good signs, I've automatic admission, don't know why I worry.  I received something about my financial aid the other day and I managed to log into my student account which already has me listed under dance which I am happy about, just wish I'd have my letter!  I have been wasting no time to get things done, anytime something comes up I complete it that day.  I am going to have to find some time between my two jobs and dance to take a trip up there to go apartment shopping.  I'll probably go up in late October or sometime in November.  By then, I need to have the money to put down my deposit and such.  I have contemplated waiting until May to leave which would probably be the easier thing to do but I really REALLY would like to leave in January if I can make it happen.  I know transferring mid-year, epsecially as a dance major, can be tricky so depending on what the school tells me about which classes I can take in Spring we'll probably help me make that ultimate decision.

Space shuttle comes back tonight after a weather delay yesterday, unfortunately an extra million is going to be have to spent to piggy back it back from Edwards, oh well, as long as they home safely.
