Dear Yessica,

My boo thang and I joke around a lot. In actuality, “boo thang” originated from a joke where I called him “ghetto boo thang.” I thought it was funny since he is so far away from ghetto. I should really start adding the “ghetto” in front of “boo thang” again. You know, switch it up a bit.

Lover sounds sexy and mature. Yesi, you’re so sexy and mature. I’m not mature by any means.

Dear Sonia,

I like how you refer to your special someone as Boo Thang. I refer to mine as Lover.
Do you think we are growing up? I hope so.

Miss you amiga,

What’s it going to take for me to maintain a healthy level of happiness this upcoming year? It’s something I’ve been thinking about quite often. I think its important for me to shift my prospective on work, love and health. Most importantly I should start thinking about where I see myself in the next year or two.

I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine last summer about moving to New York. He said it would be a great adventure and a fun thing to do. Although he agreed with my reasons about leaving Chicago he didn’t quite understand why I wouldn’t want to stay here. Thinking back to that night, I can recall explaining to him that I would stay in Chicago if one of two instances did occur:

1. I find an amazing job in a creative field where I can be productive, busy and happy. Chicago is a great city to be in, awesome lifestyles to pick from and several scenes to fall into. I would most definitely start a career here, I’m sure the opportunities are there. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough? or maybe I’m looking too hard. I don’t know for certain.

2. A relationship. Ahhh yes, I know- a relationship doesn’t sound like a good enough reason to stay behind in Chicago BUT to me it might actually be. I believe that relationships are a lot of work, time, love and understanding. If the right person came along, I’m willing to compromise on things and figure them out as they happen.

I don’t know what it is about me, but I just have this odd sensation that there is something out there in this world that is calling me. I’m not exact in which location or direction just yet, but I feel destined to something great. Now, I’m not saying I’m growing up to be the next 26 year old millionaire, Oprah, or some huge status symbol, I just feel like my path in this life will overall be good and very educational. Hmmm, I’m not sure if that totally makes sense.

I don’t have much to say tonight, but I hope the choices I’m making will be right.¬† I want to be a part of an amazing think tank, stormin’ up one idea after another.

I want change. I also want you to remember everything I once said. “Think ¬†because anything we can imagine we can create.”
