Happy New Year & Stuff

Well, it appears that I'm behind on blogging, as usual. I had a bunch of photos to upload  from my break and I never did it =(  I still plan on uploading a few photos from a couple weeks ago but they might not make any sense since the moment has passed.

So I guess it would be a good idea to reflect on 2010:

- I broke up with a boyfriend for good, against his will. While I was never really afraid of him, there was a part of me that wasn't sure what he would do if he was really drunk or angry. I was kinda on alert for retaliation. Just another reason why I'm glad I broke it off. After several months of trying to contact me, I finally responded in an email, very firmly, to stop. He did. No retaliation. Phew.

-Went to two weddings, one in Lake Tahoe, one in San Diego. Both kinda weird in their own ways.

-Less hula this year due to both of classes having issues getting their shit together and general lack of interest in making the class a priority by the other ladies in the class. It made me sad to not have a ho'ike (hula graduation) or a performance at the Del Mar Fair this year. I hope these events will return to me in 2011.

- I was less active socially in 2010. Partly due to the fact that I cut back drinking significantly. Also due to friends moving away.

- I began volunteering for an organization called Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS). It's sort of a meals on wheels for pets of elderly or disabled. It's a mission I can really get behind because I do believe that pets are wonderful support and really do give the sick a reason to live. (Plus it only requires one morning a month to deliver the food and supplies)

-Depression hurts. It's something that I've probably been dealing with on and off for many years but until a therapist evaluated me and told me I have major depression, I really didn't know how much it's affected my life. Now what to do with that diagnosis? I haven't decided yet. To be determined in 2011.

Hence and therefore I have shitload of things to work on myself for 2011.
