What better time than now?

A month into 2011 and this little nomad has already moved. . .twice! Ok once my stuff and once my sister's stuff but it still counts. I am happy to report that my new apartment is adorable and I love my new roommate. Drama free year here I come!

Taking my sister home to Chicago and back to school was sad to say the least. I lost my built in friend, and with my somewhat new single relationship status I quickly began to realize that I am low in the friends department. Partly because of where I live, people my age are constantly being shuffled in and out, but mostly because I was relying too much on my sister and boyfriend to provide my entertainment. So resolution number 1 for the year: make friends without agenda and regardless of whether they will still be here in 6 months. So far so good, I'm having lots of fun with my girls and some Brazilians!

I have also decided this is going to be the year to make some serious life decisions. I applied for an exciting new job a few days ago and I will hopefully see an outcome from that in a few weeks. No jinxing, more details to come. I've had some serious petitioning for my return to Australia and I'm really thinking about it. It always was my plan to go back to live there, life just kind of got in the way. I think that if nothing career-wise has happened for me by the end of this year there will be a big move happening. I miss Sydney so much. And I realized last week it has been almost 3 years since I was there. WHAT??? That's crazy talk. How could 3 years possibly go by that quickly? It's nuts. 3 years ago today I was absolutely freaking out about leaving in 10 days having no idea what to expect.

There are these new Disney commercials for the new memories celebration that started this year. It's hard to remember every single day how special my world is to most of the people coming through my park on a daily basis. I take it for granted and wonder what weird/frustrating guests I'll meet today. But seeing those commercials brings me back to just how magical my world is. Every few months I have one of these moments where something happens and I am reminded of just how lucky I am to be spending my days with Mickey Mouse. It really brings me back to where I need to be and suddenly it's not about the annoying guests or co-workers anymore. It's about the magic and it's perfect.

I'm going to live this year to the fullest of my ability. I want to step out of the shadows, take hold of my life and make it what I want it to be. This year is going to be amazing!
