|May 2003ish. might be May 2000. it's May some year in the early 2000s. NYC.|
I was 30 years old, unmarried, childless.
Ten years later...
my hair is a bit shorter and a LOT grayer. But I kinda dig that.
I also like my glasses at 40 more than the fugly ones I wore at 30. Man I was such a baby back then. I mean, it was only 10 years ago but look at me! Look how cute I was! So damn cherubic looking.
Kinda like this little chica:

Seriously, 10 years ago I was very different. I had a lot of insecurities. I was very much a loner. I was so very shy, it was hard to look at people. I was getting better but I think it was the start of change for me.
I'm still kinda shy and a loner, but it's so very different now.
Now I don't really give a shit what people think of me. I don't really hold grudges. I try not wasting my time and energy on shit that I cannot fix like I did back then. And life, as a result of letting a lot of shit go, is so much better.
It's good, actually.
Today I'm fabulous and 40, I'm great and gray, I'm married and a mom.
Today I can live happily ever after.
