The end of this cycle
What a year this was for me. I’m sure to those reading this blog that phrase has come to be synonymous with this honorary Spanish diva. But that’s how incredible it seems. And moreso that I am standing here alive and smiling. That’s the nature of life I suppose. You get that big box of surprises (no Forrest Gump allusion intended).
In a nutshell, my greatest hits of this year were..
-Having “Rosa Salvaje” reairred at the beginning of January on “Telefutura”. I had not seen this telenovela in years and was so touched to see it again. It kind of brought back weird memories as I didn’t have the most ideal upbringing but it was great seeing this telenovela that I had enjoyed at the age of 5 now as an adult and fully comprehend the dram
-Our break-in at our now former apartment in May. It was very traumatizing for me and I had issues well into the fall with leaving the apartment. It wasn’t moreso for my safety but moreso because of our baby shih tzu. He is so adorable, impressionable and friendly and will probably go with anyone. And dog theft is pretty common in Chicago so that really kept me up for many nights.
-DVD-R’ing 2 different telenovelas (“Rosa Salvaje” and “Camila”) in their entirety totaling 58 DVD’s. You have no idea how long it takes to encode, make menus and arrange each individual DVD. I am so ready to not do that again, but the first one was for me and the last one was for the missus as it stars his Bibi Gaytan.
-Getting to meet George from Nebraska. Such a cool dude that started reading my blog or vice versa. Either way, it was a pleasure getting to know him and moreso meeting in person this year! Gurfren you are way too much for Nebraska, how can u live there? We had a lot of fun going to El Kallejon.
-Having to cut off a very close friend. Earlier this year she had a very traumatic breakup with her ex, I was there for her, answering middle of the night phone calls at my home phone, disturbing my bf’s sleep when he had to go to work the next morning…and on one day when I wasn’t available to be there for her she decided I was no longer her friend, was deleted from her Myspace and all of a sudden became this terrible person with absolutely no regard to previous incidents. So I decided she needed something more than a good friend and I was not willing to be anything more than that. I have my own issues and friends should be there when they are available and willing to be there for you. You shouldn’t hold people accountable for having their own lives to deal with and get irritated because they’re not there at a moment’s notice. It is unfortunate when you think you know someone and despite all the drama that life deals them, they still decide to be dramatic towards you. This is probably the closest I have come to even acknowledging this situation as my stance is to “let things go” which I have. It’s better to leave things be really and even though I’m not going to be dramatic about it, I’m sure she will be and we’re bound to run into one another. I wish her the best.
But even when the ride is bumpy in life, let’s remember that the grittiness of the ride is not what’s important but moving forward is what’s important. As long as you’re moving and getting somewhere.
So I’d like to thank every single person who reads, has read or just stopping by this blog because you Google’d something and directed you here. I enjoy the feedback and enjoy the second opinions on issues I know the answers to deep down inside. May you all have a gr8 year and peace in your hearts. God loves you.
