Dad as sung by the Blizzard Babies

Yesterday I called my Papi to tell him Happy Birthday! and to tell him that I love him.  When I asked him what he wanted he said all that he wanted was for me to visit more.  Le sigh.  I will try my best to honor this wish, because I love him and that is not much to ask.  I think I've created enough emotional distance between me and the reasons that make it so challenging to be around my family and not feel so exhausted.

In other Dad news, I went on a really fantastically awesome date with a Dad.  A DAD.

Let's Not Try to Figure Everything Out at Once

So I started a new decade of my life.  I left behind the quintessential 20's.  There is less guidance out there about your 30s, I think.  I'm okay with that.  I'm so full with excitement and gratitude.  I really do feel different.  I'm armed with a sense of awe of everything that has passed and an excitement of everything that has yet to come.  

I'm fucking excited about the unknown.  This is a new feeling for the last unicorn.  But whatever, that is a whole 'nother blog post.  As a gift to myself I pledge to for at least the next month to try out new things.  I will make one new recipe, try one new activity (that is a very loose term BTW), or complete one project off my DIY board per week.  Maybe I'll document it on here, maybe not. 

I am learning slowly but surely that change is really really good.  Bring it on, all of it.

Your idea of happiness is your source of suffering. LET. GO.

Thanks to new media I get to see all the cute dates my ex boyfriend goes on with his new girlfriend who is my little sister's age.


It's not the new girlfriend or the fact that she's my sister's age, it's the cute dates.  I was forced to inhale second hand smoke and watch shitty bands for almost six years.  Understanding the importance of freedom and the hazards of love blinders.  Maybe I will be single forever, but at least I will be free.  I'll never compromise so much of who I am and what I need for another person again.
