For the first time in my 27 years on this planet I am on my own. I don’t count living in a dorm or having a bed in a sorority house as living on my own. I’ve always had someone whether it be my x husband or my parents looking out for me, making sure my bills were paid, and that I had everything I could need or want.
I am living in an apartment for the first time ever. It was an adjustment going from a 3,000 sq ft home to an 850 sq ft apt, but I’m making it work. I’ve come to learn it’s easier to clean, yet if something breaks I have no idea how to fix it. But I’m learning, my friends are showing me the ropes and I think I am a quick study. I’ve even learned how to check my oil too. Quite impressive for me, I’d say.
At first when I got a divorce, I was a fraid of the unknown, I had no plan or a place to land. I just knew I had to break free, no woman deserves to go through what I did. My single life started out a little erough, I still don’t understand the whole situation, nor do I think I ever will. But that situation helped me see a friends true colors, well needless to say I don’t speak to them any more. I haven’t spoken to my FWB in a while either. Oh well such is life, men come and go, some leave an impression on us, others fade like the wind.
I also managed to get sick. Nothing shocks you back into reality like a good health scare. Leave it to the mayo to figure it out and put me back together again. So I am healing and thriving, and thankfully I am still capable of having children. Yay!
I’m slowly easing my way into the dating scenic, I’ve been on a few and I’ve forgotten how much a first date is like a job interview. It’s funny having to say “yes, i am divorced” on a first date. But, hey who isn’t divorced these days right.
Speaking of interviews I am working on my law school applications. An I am super psyched that I do not have to retake the LSAT, I don’t think I could pull a perfect 180 out of my ass again. I am a late bloomer, but I am ready to go now and to show the law community how awesome i am. After all do you know the correlation between abortion and slavery? I do:)
I am excited for what the future has in store for me. Greatful for my true friends who know, love, and push me to become better. I’ve lost a few along the way, but they were only meant to be in my life for a short while. Two gals catering is taking off and my pure romance divas have been a life line of support. So I can honestl say that living on my own isn’t so bad, I am thriving and surviving. Go bear go:)
