Soulmate - Natasha Bedingfield
Is it possible Mr. Lovable is already in my life?
Right in front of me,
Or maybe you're in disguise?
Who doesn't long for someone to hold
Who knows how to love you without being told?
Somebody tell me why I'm on my own
If there is a soulmate for everyone? - Natasha Bedingfield

The other day a co-worker complimented my "work attire", except that I should put on black pumps (I was wearing a navy pumps that day). And I answered, "(laughs) Honestly I really don't care what I wear here in the office (laughs again)". She said, "you should". And I replied, "(laughing hysterically) umm no, I don't care what I wear here". It's true. Well, I look decent enough, clean ironed clothes, accessories, make-up. But I'm done with buying "office clothes" anymore. Okay, once in a while I do it but I don't go overboard (like how I used to). Besides, when I "dress up" (like suits, etc.), people never fail to ask me if I am going on a job interview. LOL. I was telling this to my man and he was like, "LOL, I say the exact thing. I told them y'all don't pay me enough money to do a fashion show for y'all". LOL, I don't blame him cuz I feel the same.
Speaking of work, this year marks my 10th year anniversary (October 11th, to be exact)! I remember I was the youngest person working here, ever lol. When new employees ask me how long I've been here and I answer 9 or almost 10 years they don't believe it. They're like did you start working here when you was 13 years old? LOL I take it as a compliment haha, ain't nothing wrong with that. But anyway, when I was on Miami for vacation my manager called me asking for a copy of my latest review. I actually did not print it out cuz I'm thinking - what for? I always have great reviews, I know for sure I wouldn't last here if I am not good at what I do, correct? So anyway, she found her copy of my review at her desk and I thought that was it. She mentioned that she is endorsing me for a promotion and I'm like - thank you. I wasn't really expecting anything, as a matter of fact I forgot all about it. Then while I was writing this blog entry, she called me to her office. She was gonna make a whole speech but my co-worker, whom all 3 of us share the office together, got back from her lunch break. My manager looked at me, LOL she couldn't say anything. My co-worker already had a bad day (messing up an invoice/billings for a partner who wanted to recommend her to our boss (CFO) to get fired, SMH!) so my manager, being nice as she is just looked at me and I already know what it meant, I got promoted! Yay! Thank you Lord! This is very unexpected but I am grateful and thankful.
Count your blessings, I do!
Lost and insecure you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor surrounded, surrounded
Why you'd have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me - Fray

And she fights for her life
as she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
as it pours
And she fights for her life
as she goes in a store
with a thought she has caught
by a thread
she pays for the bread
and she goes?
Nobody knows - Oren Lavie

I've been in love, a time or two
I've seen the world, when I'm with you
I wanna fly and spread my wings
I don't wanna cry, I wanna sing
I wanna live and take a chance
I'm not afraid to love again
I wanna fall, fall for you
And I want you to fall for me too - Nina
Depression strikes me most when I am alone. But I refuse to go out either. I get invitations to go out with friends for a birthday, baby shower, or just plain hanging out but I keep making up excuses. If you're one of those people, don't take it personal. It's not you, it's me.
I have a lot of shit on my plate right now. Major changes I don't wanna talk about. I will in the future. Maybe.
Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge and I'm thinking
That maybe six feet
Ain't so far down - Creed

Anyway, we celebrated (in advance) my parents' 30th wedding anniversary. Oh and it was also "meet the parents" day, LOL. Turned out pretty good, from what I can tell.
I have sooo much shit to say, but waiting for the right time. Soon.
You changed my life in a moment
And I'll never be the same again
You changed my life in a moment
And it's hard for me to understand
With a touch of your hand
In a moment of time
All my sorrow is gone - Janie Frickie

And I still have a few books here that needs attention. I bought The Time Traveler's Wife I believe 4 years ago. Started reading it soon as I got it but for some odd reason I have no idea what, I put it back on my bookshelf. But now that there is a movie coming out next month with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, I must finish the book before I see the movie.
Next book on my list is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Got this book sometime in April of this year, started reading it as well but never really got around to it.
To sum it up, I need to finish Twilight (book 1) in the next couple of days, then The Time Traveler's Wife by the end of this month (yes, I can skip a meal for a good book), and continue to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Looks like I'm gonna be real busy this next couple months - reading books! :)
Dreams last for so long
Even after you're gone
I know you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you - Jewel

Love Is Gone - David Guetta
What are we supposed to do
After all that we've been through
When everything that felt so right is wrong
Now that the love is gone ?
There is nothing left to prove
No use to deny this simple truth
Can't find the reason to keep holding on
Now that the love is gone, love is gone
How you could ever hurt me so?
I need to know what I've done wrong
and how long it's been going on
Was it that I never paid enough attention?
Or did I not give enough affection?
Not only will your answers keep me sane
but I'll know never to make the same mistake again
You can tell me to my face or even on the phone
You can write it in a letter, either way, I have to know
Did I never treat you right?
Did I always start the fight?
Either way, I'm going out of my mind
all the answers to my questions
I have to find. - All Saints
Never Ever - All Saints
This song is my shit!
