I told myself I wouldn't come back on here until I could say that I had been a bride, but alas! One full presidential term later and I am still single. I am not bitter by any means, just a little confused. I guess I should do my best to update you within the last four years. I think the last you heard from me, I was in school studying to be a graphic designer which I believe was in 09 so I guess we'll start from there.
An old roommate from college got hitched, but I chose not to attend as I was short on the cash flow.
Got a job as a nanny working for an ex-Chinese model, who turned out to be crazy.
Got a scholarship for school yay!
Both my friends Cheri and Jaz who got married in 08, got preggers, both with boys
School is continuing.
More engagements (most of them from kids I used to babysit)
Told my best friend of four years that I liked him. We had a falling out, but reconciled six months later.
A guy began showing me interest. Unfortunately, friends around us kept pushing him to make a decision, so he backed out, and now we barely hang out.
Engagements gallore--more friends join the "Heputaringonit" Club.
My sister and I started a photography and graphic design business
School is finally coming to a close and I am looking for an internship.
High school reunion (10)
So, I know it looks like nothing has really been happening, but I have been consumed with work and school. The idea of going on dates scared me as I have no experience at it at the ripe age of 28, but this year I promised that I would try to step out more and be a bit more adventures. I don't think that's the entire issue as to why I am single though. I think part of it is due to the fact that I am absolutely oblivious to guys' advances until its far too late. Decent guys paying me attention in a subtle way is unheard of and most of the time I miss the opportunity to respond to their pursuit and wind up in the dreaded "Friend Zone" forever. I think the other part is that I don't put myself out there enough because I am not an attention hog. In fact I shy away from it so insecurely that I am sure that's a HUGE turn off. Anyway, twenty twelve will be different, well what's left of it anyway, and I hope to have more to share and no longer a single lady in waiting.
