The Re-Up

Welcome to another edition of Light Fridays

After a brutal winter, it finally looks like the warmth is here to stay for a while.  If you are like me, with the arrival of spring, you began to sort through your clothing items.  I like to make piles before I pack up the clothes from the previous seasons to go through each item to determine what are keepers and what is too worn to make it another season.
Spring is also a good point to take inventory of any goals made at the start of the year.  I like to evaluate what I have accomplished and what I still need to do in order to move forward.  I try to toss out any habits that do not yield a desired result.  This said with ease is performed with extreme difficulty.
Lastly, I take the time to assess the people in my day-to-day interactions both personally and professionally.  And while, I feel everybody has some [known or unknown] purpose, some may have been assigned the wrong role in my life.  Some may have been given the lead role when they only deserved to be a background prop.  Others I put backstage, when they really deserved to be the star.
With that said, I compiled a mini list of things I am going to re-up on to make this summer fabulous:
New Places: There is always something new to do.  It is so easy to find yourself going to same places out of convenience and popularity.  So this summer, I am re-upping by visiting places I have never been and eating new dishes to expand both experiences and my palate. It’s a win- win.
New People: I’m not clubber… well, not frequently at least.  But I do love to meet new people, which is hard to do while hanging at the same places.  So this season, I am dedicated to making new acquaintances, expanding my network, and diversifying my cultural awareness.
New Fun: Life ain’t worth living if you are not having fun!  So I want to have even more fun. I know, it’s crazy. But I will leave my fears and inhibitions at the door to make sure I don’t forget how to laugh, dance, and do the things that don’t make the resume but that makes life.
Also, I will be answering the questions from the formspring link to your right sometime this weekend, so if you have any questions hit up the link.

He Says, She Hears

As always, I’m keeping it light on Fridays.

Men and women do not understand each other.  We speak two different languages.  I will make absolutely no claim to understand the lack of effective communication of men.  I can, however, speak on behalf of women.
He Says…
She Hears…
I can’t
I don’t want to
I shouldn’t
I’m about to
I should
I’m not going to
It doesn’t matter
It isn’t important enough for me to think about
I don’t know
I do know, but it will cause an argument
I’m kicking it with the boys
I don’t feel like being bothered with you tonight
We’re just friends
That’s my ex and we occasionally still sleep with each other
I’m not ready to get married
I haven’t found what I have been looking for before you but maybe you can change that.
I’m running late
You’re not that important to me so I’ll get there when I feel like it, Michelle*!!!!
