Six Months Later 

Six months ago, I was 29.5 and started this blog on a whim because I needed to vent. Six months later I'm 30. Six months ago it was the height of summer and I was in "heat" so to speak. Six months later it's winter and the cold front seems to be from within. Six months ago, I wouldn't share any of myself with others. Six months later y'all sure know a hella lot about me (and if you don't think so, just read Talk Dirty To Me, Dear Diary or The Clichéd Goodbye Letter). Six months ago I found enjoyment in the night life. Six months later I realize that it is the nights spent with friends like Alta, Eric, Sanford, Stan, Jennifer, Justin and Korrin that make my life great.

Six months ago I still believed that I would meet the person I would spend the rest of my life with in the following months. Six months later, I have met that person and it's me. And even though I've known this girl for the last 30 years, it's like the first time we've met. Six months ago I actually contemplated changing my religious belief for "love". Six months later God saved my life. Six months ago I thought that some compromises were necessary in love. Six months later I realize that love really is acceptance. And when people ask "What do you really want?" I'll say, "For to to accept my flaws gift wrapped in my beauty."

Yesterday I had 360 wonderful months of living and tomorrow I'll have at least 480 months (God willing). And today... today I'm 30.
