One of my favourite lines from Dumb and Dumber is when Lloyd tells the old lady in the scooter "Don't you go dying on me now!" hahahahahaha, okay now that that is out of the way!
So a lot of really wonderful things have been happening in my life lately, that's why I'm asking the question "Am I dying??" Sometimes thing just seem too good to be true!
Let's start with the most recent: my very dear friend Janet (who has been through a TON) was in a great mood today (which made me so happy) and she expressed her love and gratitude for me. Such a blessing! I love that girl. We have had some of life's highest highs and lowest lows together and even though we've been separated by oceans and continents and differences of opinion, we still manage to keep our friendship intact. So to Janet, I LOVE YOU. Thank you for being YOU and helping me to always laugh constantly!
Another exciting thing is that, I got my first paying gig as a photographer. Yup, that's right... I got paid $150 to photograph a rich Iraqi kid's birthday party. I actually made a common beginners mistake and ended up underexposing large chunk of my shots which is CRAP... (if you're into photography, contact me and I'll enlighten you) but I was able to fix the majority of them in photoshop... in the process, I also learned how to read histograms and also realized that my technique is crap! So all in all, it was such a learning experience that the semi-low pay doesn't even matter!!!
And finally, the last good thing to happen lately is I am learning how to take care of myself. It's really a difficult thing to master when you've never really pursued it before, but little by little, I am taking the necessary steps!
