100 days of Gratitude/Happiness: Day 47

Wonderland series - Drink me room


My clostest childhood friend gave brith to her frist heathy baby today…6 weeks earily. She wasn’t feeling well yesterday, and had to cancel our late lunch date before I flew home. I almost drive two hours down to see her but my step sister stopped me because of the harsh rain.

My friend picked me at Union Station at midnight instead of waiting for me to see if I did miss the last train home.

Ready to start letting go of people, that I once called friends. Had a reminder this weekend spending time with friends and family, what people that love, respect, and care about me act like. Actions speack louder then words. I need to stop holding on to hope to people who don’t treat me like that anymore, and repect myself enough to walk away.

Getting some rest today. I have to remeber that I’m not in the best of heath, and I need to take better care of my body. So stop pushing it so far as I used to.

Slowly getting myself back. It’s going to take time but baby steps.

I did my frist WordCamp talk. It was a lot worse in my head and I’m glad people got something out of it. If I do anther one, I know what look out for next time.

The WordPress community. They rock. It’s amazing community.

Still working on getting my confidence back.

Going to my friend’s show. She has this show annually, but this is the frist year I made it. It was wonderful and worth it.

Anther friend coming with me to the show and spending time with me. I haven’t seen her in years and it was great caught up.

Fresh croissants with coffee cup for a breakfast.


My friend decide to wake me up by bring her bunny to my bed. I miss having a mini rex bunny to snuggle with.

Had some more cuddle time with Kookie the baby face pitbull, before leaving

Have a great lunch with my friend before I head back to Sac.

Was greeted by a bunch pets at my air bnb. I really love bear, the huge loveable dog

Great speaker and sponsor dinner, that I was a speaker at for the frist time. I still haven’t been a sponsor yet, but that remains to be seen 😉

Old rangefinder camera and black-and-white photos.


Made it to my flight on time.  There was two major accidents on the fwy on the way to fly away. I was worried that I wouldn’t make it. It worked out but closer then I would have liked it.

Rental Car was nice. It took me a while to figure out how to use a keyless car. It’s been 17 years since I bought a new car.

My Cell Phone Holder. I bought one that fits into the air vents to hold my cell phone when I’m using it as my GPS.

Getting to watch my former dance teacher teach class while I rewrote my talk. That gave me time later to spend with my friend.

My friend’s fiance for making us dinner. It was veg meal but I honest didn’t miss not having meat. Like how creative they were with their meals that she found on pintrest.

100 days of Gratitude/Happiness: Day 40



Realizing that people are helping me working on getting my confidence back.  My spiritual teacher tried to get me to lead a short part of a mediation, but I choke on it because I overthought it.  He told me next time just say whatever comes to mind and remember the people who are great at it, have been doing it for a long while. Stop fearing making mistakes, or I’ll never learn to get better.

I read thought my talk today and I got it under 30 mins.  Still have to tweak it and work on the flow and transitions of the talk.

My friend dragging me out for a doughnut run today. I have to drop off some in the am.

My trip this weekend. I sotra of want the talk to be over but I’m not ready yet!

My car works… sorta of. I’m beginning to wonder if the weather is affecting it. I don’t have time for it to break down tomorrow, so wish me luck.

Learning to just let it go. The rain let through the storage shed that roof wasn’t done. It’s a lost and just letting it go with 1/3 of my stuff that got float out including a sew machine table that belonged to my grandma that I learn to sew on.


100 days of Gratitude/Happiness: Day 38



AAA. My car refused to start again. AAA got here fast and jumped it. I decide to replace the battery since that’s what he thought it was and somehow, doing that it magically fixed my car alarm that wasn’t working for the past year.

Day of the Dead. A day to remember those who passed before us and appreciate those that still are with us.

Nightmare before Christmas at the Hollywood Bowl, that I keep on calling the Rose Bowl.  Great seats and we had a great time.  Discovered that the metro card gets you on the Hollywood Shuttle Bus from the Universal Metro Lot for free.

Real Food.  I’m happy to get warm food from the HK cafes late at night since they close at 1am.

Sold my old laptop to my friend. I could have sold it for much more but my friend need it. It’s going to a good home. She is really excited that I got her pink covers for it.
