So today is my 32nd birthday!! I actually hate admitting that! I look at myself and wonder when did I start getting older. The funny thing is that I'm not REALLY old and I know that.
Obviously I moved to Houston and I just started my new job. All of this is very exciting. Living in a new place with new opportunities...but I was thinking about a couple things. A few years ago when I moved to Milwaukee I started a new job right around my birthday. My boyfriend broke up with me right before my birthday. And there I was in Milwaukee alone with no friends on my birthday.
The next year my birthday was better. By then I had a ton of friends. My girlfriends threw my a birthday party at this nice restaurant and then some of us went to Put-In-Bay in Ohio for a wild single girl weekend. It was an awesome birthday!!!
So here it is...another birthday. I'm living in a new place with a few freinds so far. It's my 3rd day on the air and I'm homeless. I'm living in a hotel at the moment...all of that doesn't bother me at all. Really. The part that bothers me is...get ready you've heard it before...this will be my third birthday where where I'm not dating anyone or have a boyfriend.
Now don't get me wrong I'm not depressed over this...just a little blah over it. I mean really??? 3 years in a row...where I'm not dating anyone? Forget the boyfriend part...I haven't even been kind of dating anyone. Even a first date. I'm starting to wonder when the birthday dry streak will end.
I guess it would be nice to have someone that you really care about on your birthday call you, surprise you, and just be there on your day. I've always looked at my birthday as a ME holiday. But for the last several years it hasn't felt that way. In the past I always took the day off, now I work on my birthday because I'd like to share my day with.
Trust me...I ain't bitching...I'm just saying...and I'm hoping and praying to sweet baby Jesus that it will change for next year.
