Hamster In A Wheel

Another year is drawing to a close and I can’t help but be pleased with myself when I look back on 2011. A lot has happened personally and professionally. I knocked two things off my bucket list: going to the Australian Open and going to Wimbledon. I also published my first novel, acquired nearly 4000 Facebook friends, made a few awesome new girlfriends, and dated some pretty decent men. Real contenders. That’s why you didn’t hear me bitching too much about my terrible dating life. I don’t write about the good ones. I just blog about the fuckers who deserve it!

I also took a two-week mandatory vacation to Kauai (doctor’s orders—I love my doctor!). It was the first two-week vacation I’ve had in over 20 years. Now I understand why people take vacations. To unwind, but also to stop running for a moment, take in your environment and see if you like where you’re headed. Or, to see if you're just running in one spot.

5 Dating Resolutions for 2011

Long before The Secret, I had a boyfriend who made me a “vision board” by pasting photos, words and magazine clippings on a big piece of construction paper. It represented who I was and where I wanted to go in life. While this man never supported me financially (in fact, it was the other way around), he got bonus points for being emotionally supportive of my career. Without him, I would have never become a writer nor would I have moved to the United States.

He was the little voice that said “you can do this” as I wrote magazine articles for 50 cents a word and copy for medical brochures (yawn) and real estate brochures (more yawns). I would come home after a long day at my ‘paying gig’ of producing commercials, and he would have music playing, champagne to toast the sunset together, and a bubble bath drawn and lined with candles for me to unwind in while he prepared a gourmet dinner. For years I had the vision board on my wall, probably right until The Secret became popular. Then I tucked it away somewhere, a little embarrassed that it was now the thing to do.

New Year’s Eve: Just Say "No"

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and while everyone is busy making plans to celebrate with friends, family, or lovers, I’m opting out. Last year I went to Vegas for three nights with a friend and partied like a rock star at Tryst, Tao and The Bank. Actually, she partied. I babysat, ensuring her safe return to the hotel room each night, er…morning. This year, I was invited to Aspen, but I don't want the male friend who invited me to think he’d finally get into my pants just because we’re both single on New Year’s Eve. So, I will be ringing in the New Year alone. While I am quite comfortable with being alone, this is a time of year when I will feel not just alone, but lonely. Absent of family, friends or a lover to share the night with. The fact is I would rather celebrate alone than be in some bar with a bunch of people I do not know or care to know trying to convince myself that I am having a good time just because it’s New Year’s Eve.
