mondays always bring promise
This pic was taken two years ago, when I was forty-two. It's probably the best representation of what I look like on a regular day, including the smudged eyeliner!
In my last entry, I was asking if you ever thought back to when you were nineteen or twenty, and back then, did you imagine what you'd be like now?
I doubt that I ever did.
I probably thought that I wouldn't gain weight (which I did) or stop going out. I was the Nightclubbing Queen! But I stopped going out - thus the weight gain. On the night of my thirtieth birthday, which was celebrated at a nightclub with eleven of my youngest friends (back then, all my friends were in their early twenties) I remember posing the question, "where do forty year olds go to party?"
Looking back, it seems ridiculous, but we do have a place that the younger crowd calls the Cougar Club. Filled with 35-50 year old women getting loaded and picking up younger men, it's a place I'll gladly stay away from, unless Bill takes me. Dancing and flirting with Bill is a lot of fun.
At any rate, I am pretty happy with who I am today. I have few regrets, other than those in the financial arena that may keep me from getting into the banking industry. I think the last two years have played havoc with my credit rating, but I am not afraid of hard work, or working my way up. That's the thing aboout being tenacious - just about anything is possible, if you're willing to give it time.
Today Bill is taking me down to the office, then using my truck to drop off resumes at several locations. I have to print off resumes for another local bank that uses a central teller. Apparently, those are the only kind of bank that hires someone with a credit rating like mine!
