Thought I’d take and update my bio now, that it’s been 2 yrs since it was last created and, having so much take place in ones life, I feel that someone has to step up and say what has been going on.
Kidding. Actually, I’ve just ended a relationship that, for the last 2 yrs was an emotional abuse one. I woke up one morning and saw that nothing was going to change; at least, he wasn’t. I was the one who needed to make that change. Stay in a relationship and further be abused or… So here I am. A stronger woman, who had enough of being taken advantage of, used and abused. Left everything behind (well; not everything) and starting over. It’s been a slow start but I am making do with what I have. Many thanks to those classmates here in town (they know who they are) that gave me support when I was down this summer. I love you.
Let’s make our once a year get together something to remember. Don’t forget that it IS only once a year that we can reunionte with those that we either grew up with or met during high-school and party like it’s 1986. And yes, I still listen to Culture Club and the other great bands of the 80’s. AND I’m proud to serve as co-chair for our class reunion. It’s been great getting in contact with everyone and searching for him or her via the web and the phone book.
