What up y'all? Just taking a quick break from the books. Started school on Monday and it's back to the grind. Saw this on people.com and found it on youtube. Hope you laugh like I did. Cheers!

I'm getting married. That's right! I'm engaged. The interesting thing is that I've been wanting this for a long time but now that it's here, I don't know what to do. If left to me, I would go to the courthouse and get married but the the thing is that there are other people involved, namely my family. So now, that leaves us with planning a wedding and deciding who will be in it. I'm not really there yet so I'll leave that for now. What's on my mind is, I'm not the young bride to be anymore. I'm forty years old, soon to be forty-one, and as excited as I am to begin this new phase of my life, I'm not that excited about the whole planning process. I've been seeing lots of pictures on Instagram and videos on Youtube of lovely weddings but they're all of young people and nothing starring people mine and my fiance's ages. And another thing is we want to take our time with the planning process and not feel rushed but peop…
I'm sitting on my couch in the living room, listening to John Mayer's City Love. I've always loved this song, I've always loved John Mayer but I hadn't listened to his music in a long time. But I was on the couch, again, last Wednesday and while channel surfing, I landed on MTV and they showed a concert he had performed in L.A. in 2007 and I sat and watched the whole concert. I don't usually do such but I don't know what compelled me and in doing so, reconnected with songs that at one time had so much meaning to me. So now, I've searched for those songs and downloaded them, hence why I'm listening to one of them now. But specifically City Love. I think the reason this song resonates so much w/ me is that it speaks of love in a way that's untainted. The kind of love that once you've settled into, is effortless. I just needed that surge of hope and optimism.
I've found in this journey that I'm currently in, I have to remember…
I do A LOT of self analysis and today I finally figured out why I'm fat. I'm fat because I'm a binge eater and I binge eat because I'm fairly miserable. It's not that food brings me comfort, it takes my mind off my unhappiness. I come across as a fairly optimistic and jovial individual but underneath all that I'm truly miserable. Not to the point where I'd take my life. Fuck no. Ain't nobody got time for that. But I am miserable enough that I eat to the point of distraction, literally. I think about food so I don't really focus on the fact that my life isn't what I want it to be. It isn't where I want it to be. I dream about food, what I'll eat, how I'll eat it, how I'll make it or where I'll buy it, so that I don't focus on me.
