New Year: New Me, New You (Part 1)

Hello everyone and welcome to 2009!

Now, I know it's been a minute since I wrote on my blog. You know, the holidays and having a boyfriend kept me occupied but I’m back and "ready to go right now!" (as John Legend would say!)

I had several posts lined up to share my holiday experiences but I believe it’s best to leave 2008 in the past. While I had many great Christmas memories (i.e. going to The Grinch Musical and spending the day with my man and his god-children), I also experienced some not so pleasant moments (i.e. arguing with my man long distance following New Years).

So let the past be the past and let's focus on the year ahead!

I've been enjoying my month long break from school and the semester begins Jan. 26th. I'm really nervous since I'm taking a psychology statistics course and I suck horribly at math! Consequently, if you don't view many posts during the forthcoming semester, you'll know why!

Additionally, I'm researching info regarding a summer internship I'm interested in. This would be a outstanding opportunity following graduation and gain valuable insight about the music industry. However, the position I’m considering is unpaid and would require relocation. I have no qualms about relocating but I do require income. I'll keep you guys apprised of my decision.

The biggest thing I'm looking forward to in 2009?

I'm going on a cruise in October! I’m super excited and extremely giddy about this! We've submitted our deposits (for a balcony suite) and we'll be traveling to St. Kitts, St. Thomas, Dominica, San Juan, Puerto Rico and numerous other saint-named-islands. Furthermore, I’m most thrilled about meeting my future mother in law The Voice's mom! There’s so much to do but in the end, I'm sure I'll have a blast!

Another thing I'm looking forward to in 2009 is cutting my yarn locks. As of March, it will be one year and I've attained several inches of growth. I'm still pondering over this decision and I’m unsure whether I’m ready for the "pregnant stage" but sooner or later, I have to go through with it.

Unfortunately, my year didn't begin well concerning my health. As you know, I lost nearly 20 pounds last year during my initial months dating The Voice. Sadly, I gained some of it back and following a routine check-up, I discovered my cholesterol went back up. I attribute this to the constant dining out on weekends and new work/school schedule. The late nights and busy days have radically altered my eating habits and I'm not getting my three daily meals. Moreover, I learned that I have a cavity on my wisdom tooth. These findings have led me to make some SERIOUS changes!

No booze (13 days sober so far!), no sweets, no fast food, no late night snacking and I’ve returned to eating Cheerios. Furthermore, it's back to the gym A.S.A.P.

:: sigh ::

So those are the biggest happenings in my life for 2009! I'm ecstatic about a myriad of things this year and the possibilities they will bestow.

What are the most significant changes (I prefer not to utilize that blasphemous word "resolutions") you've made in your life for 2009?

... And no, I didn't forget about The Voice! A lot to discuss so keep an eye out for part two in a few days!
