Well, it's anyone's guess as to when her vocal majesty (aka Dance Diva Goddess, Pope of Pop, RnB Messiah, Fashion Icon High Priestess, etc) La Toya Jackson will unleash upon the world her long overdue epic musical project, "Startin' Over", but in the meantime I am startin' over with or with out the help of the most talented and dynamic member of the Jackson family.
I am officially moved into my new apartment and I am looking at this as the start of a new chapter in the life of Chicago's most notorious Sex_Box. I think everyone has to start over or reinvent themselves (as Madonna would phrase it) every now and then. I think I am long overdue for a reinvention. I think the last time I went through such a process was when I moved to Chicago a little over three years ago. Moving this weekend has enabled me to reevaluate my life. It has given me the opportunity also to leave behind some very negative forces in my life that were hindering my spiritual growth and development. Maybe it sounds strange that moving can have such a profound affect on a person's psyche, but it is the only way I can describe it.
So my new apartment not only serves as a place to reside and store my belongings, but it shall also be the fortress from which I plan on facing all of the demons, regrets and negativity that has been plaguing me for quite some time. I used to believe it wasn't healthy to regret unwise past decisions and actions, but I have learned that with regret comes the determintation to avoid making the same mistake again. I know I am babbling today but I haven't slept much the past few days....ugh....
As soon as I get my apartment completely unpacked I think I will post some pictures. I went on a shopping spree at IKEA with my Milwaukee Sister so my apartment looks like an IKEA advertisement! The IKEA exerience though was a blast (as is any experience with my Sista M!) As we crashed into stuff with the 3 carts between the two us, laughed like a bunch of big girls, and made even a bigger spectacle in the parking lot trying to tie a couch to the roof of the SUV, we got many strange looks from people passing by. But the best part of IKEA was the cute check out boy in the 15 items or less aisle. Grrrr......both of us agree he was a hottie! Naturally, I made sure i asked the cute IKEA boy for directions when I decided I still needed even more stuff at Best Buy.
Other than that, the move went well. The professional movers I hired broke a few of my cd-racks, but that just gave me an excuse to buy new ones at IKEA. I must admit though, they were FAST! They moved all of my shit in less than 3 hours. I think the next time I move (which hopefully won't be for awhile!) I will definitely get professional movers again.
