Heyas there everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving (those in America) and wonderful Merry Christmas. Nope, I'm still not saying the generic, "politically correct" Happy Holidays or Season's Greetings. I know what this time of the year is about, and it's not the presents, trees, or decorations. Even if you're not religious, this is a wonderful time of year to be with family, reflect on your life, and try to bring peace to your life and soul. It's not about "Black Friday" or "after-Christmas" sales. Anyway, besides that, I hope you all had a wonderful time with family, friends, and loved ones. My Christmas was very nice, I spent it with my mom and younger brother. I want to thank you all for your prayers and thoughts for him. He's doing much better than this time last year, although he still has a long way to go. He understands he needs to get his life together and that's a big step.
As for me, sadly there's nothing much new going on with me. I'm still job-hunting, still struggling with paying back my student loan, and still stuck in a job that I'm very unhappy in. But I'm still holding on to hope that things will change soon. I'm still applying to A LOT of jobs online so I'm sure something will come up. My biggest obstacle is transportation though. I grew up in New York City, so I've never had to bother learning how to drive. It's not something I'm striving to do anytime soon anyway. But since coming to this small town in Pennsylvania, I've come to appreciate how important transportation is and how it can invigorate a city or town. But people in a small town like this....they don't think that way. But I'm still hoping to hope. It'll just take time, that's all. *sigh* Other than that, I'm hanging in there and I'm excited I'll soon start my all new original novel, The Light Of The Gods: Blood Ties. The first chapter should be sometime in mid-January. Please wish me luck everyone and stay tuned!
I've also been thinking about what I would like to happen in the New Year. The truth is, it's not so different from last year. I would just like to find a good-paying job, save up money, and finally be able to get out of this hovel little town and make it back home to New York City, with my mom and younger brother. Besides that, nothing else matters. Who knows how long this world has with things going the way they are. I just want to be home, with my family, friends, and the familiar places I grew up with and loved. That's important to me. And perhaps...perhaps I can think about finding love too. A girl can dream, ne? Also, I'd love to get more comments, feedback, and even offers for my stories. That's it. Does anyone have any hopes and New Year's wishes? Let me know. That's it with me. Thank you all, those of you who have read my stories and offered feedback and comments. Again, you guys truly make it worth it being here. Take care all, and a Happy New Year's to you all. I hope all your dreams, hopes, and wishes come true.
