My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

I Am Back - And I Am In A New Apartment!

Ok everyone - I know I have been gone for a little while but I have been busy with work and with moving...Some great things have happened since I last posted...not only in my personal life with moving but also at work.

But yes...that is right - I moved into a new apartment. I live by myself again. I have moved into the Post Biltmore Apartments in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. I am so excited. I am in the heart of Midtown nightlife, bar-life, club-life, etc. I have a ton of friends that live in the area so I am very excited. I think it will be so much fun to live in this area.

I will miss my best friend Samuel so much but I think it is best for him and for me that we also have our own places to grow and develop. I have learned so much from him in the last year and it has been great to get reconnected to him. I have known him 10 years and I look forward to the next 10 and beyond.

As far as work goes, I was awared the Distinguished Performance Award at work. I am now in the running to win a trip to Disneyworld next year so I am pumped. It is always nice to be rewarded at your job when you do work hard.

So now that I live in a new apartment, I needed all new furniture. celebrate I went to IKEA and spent 200 dollars on new furniture. I had never been to IKEA before so it was an awesome experience. That store is so big. I was shocked at how much I found there that I wanted to buy. So yeah..I spent 200 dollars and that got me a lot. More specifically, that got me the following:

A two tier coffee table
A computer desk
A chair
6 new towels
4 new candle holders
200 tea lights
A new shelf with awesome black curvy brackets
2 new trash bins
Floor mat for the bathroom
Two black mesh small container for the bathroom
A new set of kitchen knives
A new set of silverware

Phew - and I think I am forgetting something! Ha ha - IKEA rocks

I will post some photos soon - my place ROCKS!

I hope everyone is doing well out there!

My Brother Is Finally Coming Home - After 8 Years!

I was driving home from work yesterday when I received a phone call. I missed the call but on my caller ID I noticed the number and it looked weird. It was 1 digit too long. I was perplexed by the number. I tried to call it back but it would not go through.

As I was attempting to call the number back, my voicemail indicator came on. I listened to the voicemail and it was my brother. He is overseas in the Navy and has been for basically the last 8 years of his life. I have only seen him a handful of tmie over the last 5 - 6 years.

I did not realized how much I miss my brother until I heard his voice on my voicemail. I immediately started smiling and my smile just grew and grew as I kept listening.

In the voicemail, he told me that he is leaving the Navy and going back to school. He basically has a free ride from his time in the Navy...he can choose his college of choice....well any college he is accepted to I should say.

I am so proud of him!

I am am so happy that he is coming home!
