Change is good...I think

I changed my hair again. I am not sure how this change will be received, but hey it doesn't matter as long as I like it, right? This time I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those styles that I am going to have to play with to get it right. Only time will tell. I am still Divalicious!

I went to my third official salsa class on Monday. There are not very many young people that attend these classes. But I suppose that is okay, I am not going there to meet young people, but to learn how to dance. Sometimes, I feel like I dance too aggressively or something. I thought that the whole movement thing was about taking real steps and not shuffling your feet around. I haven't got a good read on the instructor yet. This will be interesting. I think I like taking classes in a club better than in the studio. But being in the club is still kind of awkward for me. I am surrounded by the beautiful ones and I have yet to achieve that level of competency with my dancing. Operation divalicious salsera is now in progress.

School is still on hold for the moment. That is fine. I have been spending a lot of time working on other things. My children are doing well in school. That makes me very happy. Even though we've had our shares of ups and downs throughout this process, it feels like things are gonna work out fine. I am sticking to my pseudo-diet/work-out plan in the meantime. I have decided that as a health professional it is important to lead by example, and that life in moderation is a better example than overindulgence. I think the most difficult thing to commit to at this time is a workout routine. I can control my eating fairly well. I need desperately to incorporate more physical activity in my life. I hope to be in a dramatically smaller size in time for graduation. Graduation will be here before I know it so I better get myself together.

I am so bored. I have to meet with the insurance agent, (what fun!) and then I get to go shopping for Halloween costumes.

Siempre,

DiVa

It's a girl, no it's a boy...wait a minute,

It is definitely a boy. There are testicles. So there will be a name change in order. It is so interesting, having a cat and all. I felt the underside of his paws and they were warm and soft like real flesh. (Can you tell I've never had a pet before?) His little pink paws have capillary refill just like humans...only a nurse. He went to the vet for the first time on Friday and got himself immunized and checked out. He is perfect.

Okay, I went to the local Salsa club for the first time last night. The night began pretty fun. There was a Salsa class. I learned how to turn, and a few spins. I was actually doing some Salsa. Then the house lights went down and the band started to play. I went by myself, which I am sure is a pretty scary concept in this day and age. It was cool. I saw other women there by themselves and I thought, "I'm okay." Then I saw someone there that I don't particularly care for. I really didn't like my outfit and I had no idea what could happen since I was there by myself and she was with a group of her friends. So I left.

I felt defeated when I left the club. I felt like I had let some unknown force beat me at a game that I thought I had the confidence to play. Of all the nightclubs in the metropolitan area, why did this bitch have to go to the same one that I decided to go to learn Salsa? I won't say that she was the primary reason why I left, more like the secondary. This being my first time and all, I wanted to kind of get a feel for what the climate would be like. I wasn't dressed the way I wanted to be, and besides that I got really hot and uncomfortable. I didn't particularly like my shoes either. Next time I will be better prepared. Which will be in an hour. Yes, I am jumping back into the skillet, I can't be stopped.

School is school. Right now I am just plowing along, waiting for graduation. Not a whole lot of work and such. I wish I had more things to share academically. But that day will come soon enough.
