Thoughts and such

Well, the traveling days are over. I absolutely LOVED the last month of my life. Seeing different parts of the country...not being home was great. I've been home for the past 7 days straight and I'm feeling stir crazy. I have really enjoyed not knowing exactly what the day would hold. I liked surprises around every corner and sleeping in a different bed most nights. I've known for awhile that I was not cut out for the corporate world...maybe I'm not meant to be "settled" either. Somethng to think about.
Also, I really don't like this time of the year. Once again...I'm not seeing my family during the holidays and it bites. Normally I don't NEED to be around my family. I have a pretty independent life and I like it that way. I don't run and ask my family for advicce on life decisions or feel the need to constantly talk to them on the phone. Granted some of my family members are cool and I like them...others...not so much. But regardless, they are mine and I miss them like crazy when it comes time for the traditional days of family gatherings. I feel a huge sense of being all alone in the world during these times and it easily becomes a dark pit of depression. My time here in Nashville has been the lonliest I've ever experienced, even after all this time I'm still not used to having several people arond to call my own. I know that there are people out there that care...I just long for people that are mine. here. with me.
On a happier note...the weather here has been IDEAL the past few days. high 60's, low 70's and SUNNY. The little break from the winter cold has been nice.

Adventures in California

Well, I am back home in TN. I returned to rainy, cold, miserable fall weather. ICK. My week in CA was awesome. The sun, the warmth, the break from home stress and getting some work done were all a part of my week. I arrived on Halloween and went to Hollywood for the day. It was nuts. People EVERYWHERE. Literally. Cars could not get onto the streets. I have determined that Halloween is pretty much a day to dress with as little clothing as possible for many people. I could not believe some of the "costumes" people tried to get away with. YUCK. I saw the parts of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, saw the sign, was in the Kodak Theater and was given tickets to see Jimmy Kimmel Live. Of course the night *I* get to see the show in person it is one of the worst lineups in history...Kathy Griffith and Meatloaf. The one great thing I can say about Meatloaf (aside from the wonderful high school memories) is that he seemed to really appreciate his audience and fans. He just kept playing and playing, long after the show was over. It was cool to see that.
The next day was a day at Disneyland. I got to have my belated birthday lunch at Ariel's Grotto and all the Disney Princesses come through while you are eating. It was fun. I think I was about the only adult there that cared about the Princesses but I didn't was fun. It was great to have a carefree day and be a kid again.
The conference I was working at started on Thursday but before it started I headed down to the beach for a few hours. I haven't seen the Pacfic Ocean in soooo long. It was breathtaking. I decided to take a few minutes and walk down to the ocean...although not in beach attire, I threw caution to the wind and walked down so I could feel the wonderful salt water in my hands. I have always felt a huge connection to the ocean. Its such magical place to me. The ocean is so goes on and on and the power of it is amazing. I definately see the power of God in the ocean. As I journeyed out I just cried and cried at the beauty before me. I cried thinking of times long ago when the ocean was so accessible to me and how much I miss seeing it whenever I would like. It was a bittersweet moment.
The conference started and one of my oldest friends flew in from Las Vegas for the weekend. So I worked during the day and played at night. It was a whirlwind of a time. So much fun, some stress and I got sick...I would say overall it was the best of trips.
