Sunday, February 1st is not just the Super Bowl,
it's also the Golden Bday of my bloggidy-blozzoggle :)
Who can believe it's been a year???
This is how I feel about that ;)
Hi! My name is Stacey Hall...I’m not-so-secretly in love with my gnome, Sesame Street & getting to know perfect strangers. I recently left the best affair of my life, with Zoo York City, but love being back for this Chicago 2.0 adventure! I have every intention to buy a puppy & a plant when I grow up. Similar to spam (both the canned meat & the junk-mail) this blog serves no meaningful purpose. Welcome:)
The thing I love most about Facebook (besides people’s pictures)
is connecting with long lost friends ...
This week I reconnected with a guy who I had a massive
(correction: colossal) crush on in High School.
I wrote him a note to compliment the absolutely beautiful family he now has :) And one of the things he wrote back really resonated with me. He said:
“My family's great. I never imagined being married with two kids before the 10-year HS reunion, but I love it!”
This made me smile because; the funny part is … I did!
If you’d asked me 10 years ago, I would have 110% thought that I’d be married with two kids come the 10 year reunion.
Never in a million years would I have thought that I’d be blogging about my silly single life in Zoo York City … Honestly, never.
I am soooooo far off “the plan” it’s not even funny
(even though I actually think it’s ha-sterical!)
But never in a million years, would I trade what I have now
The best thing I’ve come to learn along the way is that
you can’t actually start to enjoy life until you actually decide
to fuck the plan!
Life’s crazy and sometimes it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever ... oftentimes I feel like common sense just becomes so uncommon ... and now I understand that that’s totally ok!
If it were cool to drink alone,
I’d crack open a bottle of champagne right now ;)
Then I'd raise a glass to toast to life in general :)
Cheers to following your own path!
Wherever it has taken you thus far, and wherever it may lead you in the future, I hope your "plan" is simply to take what you have and make the most of each and every single day :)
He was the uuuuber suuuuper, nice, innocent, handsome victim who was (accidentally) pushed (by me) into the bathtub, thus pulling the shower curtain down, and unluckily having the rod fall onto his nose :(
Needless to say, he did not call me ever again after that night ;)
Fast forward one month, as our paths randomly cross again, at Vynl this morning …
I spotted him the moment he walked in the restaurant but played it cool and waited until after he and his friends had finished eating.
He seemed genuinely excited to see Caitlin and actually acted pleasantly happy to see me as well!
Apparently he just got back from Dubai last night and spent the Holidays skiing (must be nice). As I had not gone to Dubai and/or spent my Holidays skiing, I said very little except for “Hi hi hi hi” and “Happy New Year!”
As he walked away Caits and I joked that we should have fabricated an elaborate story like that I had just gotten back from saving indigenous children in Thailand or something outlandishly awesome like that.
But then we only laughed harder at the question of, “Why is it that we need to concoct stories of me with fake indigenous children for a guy to actually like me?!?”
And so goes the story of my life ;)
