Speaking of fabulous places, created an oasis-

Sorry for the lack of update. Lots have been happening as well as nothing at all. I've lost my ability to update at work again but not because of access. I'm training and only have three weeks left at my place so I want to tie up loose ends before I'm done and say farewell.

I took the boxes out of my car today and started to pack away my books. Then I start thinking if I should really take them with me or not. Is it pretentious of me to want to start my own collection of books? (Includes one kid book and mangas). Heh. Who knows. All I know is that, my favorite book, "The Little Prince" is missing still.

As I rummaged through my books and wiped cobwebs off of them I found random things I used as bookmarks. Christmas cards, a birthday card from my Mom- what year I don't even remember, pictures, receipts, engagement invitations. Everything brought good memories. Everything brought bad.

My how a year goes by so fast, so slow, so sad, so mad
and everything was swallowed with smiles, with tears, with menace, with desire
and out came life.

It's hard to say goodbye to people you've come to know, isn't it? I'm not sure if you're close to any of your current co-workers, but I certainly am/was... and the whole leaving process was difficult, for sure.

You gotta check out this bookstore in NY that my friend/co-workers just told me about an hour ago. She told me The Strand has this thing going every Memorial Day Weekend where they give you a shopping bag, and you can fill it up with as much book as possible... all for $10! Yoooo, ain't that a great deal?! Maybe you can get "The Little Prince" then if you can't find it.

Come to think of it, I haven't read a book in ages; I should start again.

And lol @ me finding pics of you from 4-5 years ago. I gotta hit you up with them one of these days. (Let me reiterate that you were NOT fat back then!!)
