Talkin’ about a revolution…

There’s a few new developments in my life that you might not know about yet.

1. My mom is moving to Joburg.  Although my mom doesn’t make too much of an appearance here anymore (divorce issues, too many eyes on this blog, blah blah blah), I’m very excited to have my true best friend within a 5 minute drive to have coffee with.  How excited Jon is, however, cannot be determined.  He especially hasn’t said much which makes me side-eye him quite often 😉

2. I’m looking at investments.  I’m sorry blog, don’t fall down dead.  Yes, it’s come to that time in my adult life that I start look at investing some cash dollar in which to squander when I’m 89, in nappies, drunk and terrifying my grand kids.  Jon and I have different views on how I should start saving money, so any additional assvice would be appreciated here.

3. I feel different.  Almost… responsible, somehow.  I know, right?  I’ve begun to think long term, lately.  Instead of splashing out money on irrelevant crap, I’ve started thinking about outdoor furniture, for instance.  And saving for our next holiday trip, or for that specific expensive thing I want.  I’ve even gone to the gynie to sort out my inside parts in case one day I want to, you know, have midgets.

4. I’ve made some cuts in my life.  I’ve realised I hang on to toxic friendships, I’ve forgiven people no longer in my life for things they did that ate away at me, I’ve said sorry to others that deserved it, I’ve rekindled important relationships and I’ve written off others.  After the audit of people in my life, I’m lucky enough to be satisfied with my lot.  I know exactly who I can approach for whichever reasons, and who I shouldn’t.  It helps.

5. I’ve been happy for a while now.  Stressed out, over worked and probably a little manic, but I’m happier than I’ve ever been.  I look back at how things have changed over the last 2 years and a lot of the credit needs to go to my awesome Jon.  He’s taught me to be honest with myself, push the boundries and to believe in me more than I did before. I know he’s reading this, so to him I’d like to say “Stop being bashful, love, you’ve helped me make a lot of changes in my life.  Thank you”.

6. My birthday is coming up in less than 4 weeks.  For the first time in years, it’ll be spent with my family!  Or at least, a small part of my family.  I’ve ordered an Angry Birds cake from Angel’s alter ego, The Cupcake Lady.  I am SO excited.  Even though I’m going downhill to the 30’s, I’m still the biggest kid on the block when it comes to birthdays.

So there you have it, an update.  I hope you’re all doing well, too!

PS: since I don’t blog that often anymore, here’s something that I’ve enjoyed lately: Suri’s Burn Blog.  Hilarious parody tumblog written (but not really) by Tom Cruise & Katy’s daughter, Suri.

    LOL. You’re hurtling towards 30.

    Dude, remember when I bought a fridge and you were like “FUCK. YOU BOUGHT A FRIDGE”.

    I’m having one of those moments right now.

    P.s. I also recently purchased insurance. I shit you not.

    Everyone has to become responsible sometime, comes with age, as long as you keep the young, fun spirit forever is what matters, and I’m pretty sure you will.

    Happy for you about your mom, shame Jon probably isn’t too excited coz he’ll have to share you now 😛

    Investment wise I like property. Can’t advise about stocks etc, all I know is diversify, diversify, diversify 😛
