Hello all!  Its me, I’m back after a long hiatus.  Don’t feel neglected because I forgot about myself too.  During the latter part of 2009 my life changed drastically, things ended between me and a male companion, I started a new career as a teacher and I finally conquered the goal of changing my living situation.  Because of all these new developments 2010 started on a very different note.

I rang in the new year without a guy which is the first time that had happened in a while however it was one of the best new years celebrations of my life.  I went to a party of a college friend of mine and not only did I become reacquainted with her I met an interesting guy.  I also became acquainted with a new portion of my persona that I didn’t know existed.  The new portion of my persona was the very reason why I became acquainted with the new guy.  Usually the old blackbeauty wouldn’t dare speak to a guy who didn’t fall along the many superficial guidelines of attractiveness that I had constructed years ago however my new persona wasn’t feeling that.  My new persona caused me to open my mind and boy and I glad that i did!  I met this very attractive and sweet guy and since then we have became friends and I’m glad that I met him!

2010 has been good to me so far.  I am living in a fabulous new apartment with a good friend and good roommate and I have discovered a new found appreciation for myself that I had began to lose when I was tied up in those old components of 2009.  The year is still young and I have a lot more to look forward to like my 25th birthday, wrapping up my first school year as a teacher, a productive and refreshing summer vacation and perhaps the possibility of new love.   Although until I will continue to venture on and keep thanking God for all of the many blessings that he keeps bestowing on me.
