MARCH MADNESS!!!


This month has flown by!  It literally became an Eagle with wings, and decided to take me on a wild ride. I can’t even believe that Easter is upon us, I celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary, and St. Patty’s day came and went, with its pot full of gold at the end of the rainbow. By the way, I do not recommend watching the Leprechaun movies on St. Patrick’s day while being sober…Wow! Those movies were terrible! But the craziest of all things that could happen in March, is the amount of snow that I am seeing here in VA. I mean from light snow, to shower mixes, to a possible storm as I am writing this, I mean when is it going to stop? I guess Winter does not want to leave us so soon after all. Could it be that the year is going by so fast, that the seasons are not catching up? I mean, for me, it feels like time is going at the speed of light and I can barely keep up.

And then there is Easter. What a great time to celebrate with family and all the children of one’s family. I hope time will slow down a bit, just for this one day, so that I can get to enjoy it!

It is interesting how when we are young, we want everything to happen right away. We want time to speed up and grow up. But as adults, the opposite happens. Not only do we change as people, but we also have a different view of time. We simply do not want it to go by so fast. We do not want to grow old and we want to hold on to the good times as much as possible.

Sometimes, it feels like life itself is just a dream. An illusion or a thought that simply lingers long enough to create memories. Then one day we can refer back to it, whether it was a good memory or a bad one; but nothing is really real. Nothing is that detrimental or constant. Eventually things change, situations change, people change, circumstances change. The only thing that is constant and for sure is time. It is always there creeping upon us.

So on this month of March, I hope that we all take time from our MAD schedules to reflect, spend time egg hunting, eat way too many chocolates, create good memories, and take it one day at a time.

Happy Easter! Happy Reading!!!

9 Days Before 30


Time flies when you don’t want to get older. It is not that I feel that by turning 30 I am an old person. Besides, there is nothing wrong with getting older, and it is one of those things that we cannot avoid. Time does not forgive. Whether you are happy, sad, traumatized, elated….It does not matter. Time still passes on. I am happy that time is passing by. For one, I am closer to finishing my Master’s Degree. Hopefully I will land a job somewhere. But, it is very bittersweet to not be in my 20’s.

Time causes change. I am no longer as naive as I used to be. I understand things a lot better now. In a way, this is not good. Somehow, I was better off being naive and not knowing the truth. You see, with time and maturity comes wisdom. Innocence disappears from within your soul.  No longer can people pull little tricks on you or make you feel that things are a certain way, when they are not. You may think wisdom is great. Wisdom means knowledge. But in my case, I was better off not knowing anything at all. I was moving forward and forgetting the past. Until, I found out the true motives of people around me. You simply cannot have the good without the bad. 

Time causes confusion and nostalgia. When time passes, you may forgive and perhaps forget certain things. Then you ponder , “What the heck was I thinking?” Exactly, “what the heck was I thinking when I took that job, or dated that guy, or wore that outfit??” But even though you cringe while thinking about those moments,the truth is they may have been the funnest and funniest moments you have had. You may also feel as I feel now, completely worried about what’s to come next or what to do. But, as usual, time will take care of that.

Happy Reading!!!!
