"I Was Here..."

Hallo there,

How's everyone doing? Hope your week has been great so far! It's Thursday already, and the weekend is around the corner! Time is flying!

RIP Steve Jobs. Yesterday the world lost a very, very innovative mind. I wasn't a religious follower of his work, life and achievements, but his impact on the world as we all know it today, is profound. It is everywhere. I am currently typing from a Mac. I've also never listened to his famous 2005 Stanford commencement speech, but I've read excerpts of it here and there. One of the many lines that I've read over and over again is this one;

You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

There are sooo many other really good and meaning quotes from his entire life. I'll share some as time goes on. I was listening to Beyonce's "I Was Here" earlier on today, and I think the song has the perfect lyrics for the way in which Steve Jobs led his live, and encouraged the rest of us to. May his soul rest in peace, and may the good Lord give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.

So moving on, remember how I said I needed to get my butt off of my couch and do stuff! Yeah, so I just remembered that I had bought some LivingSocial coupon for pole dancing classes in early Spring. :) And they are expiring this week! So I called up the place and out of courtesy they allowed me to still use them even after the expiration date. I have 4 classes scheduled over the next two weeks! Funny thing, I looked at the address and the studio is located 5mins from where an apartment I wanted to move into is. *sigh* I knew that apartment was 'the one'! If only I would find a room-mate!!!

In addition to the pole dancing classes, I also just got a coupon for unlimited Salsa/Latin dance classes for one month! It was only 30bucks! If you know me well, you wld know I love to dance! Sometimes I prefer dancing alone sef, cos then I dnt have to move according to someone elses rhythm or pace. It's the one thing that makes me happy. I've always wanted to take dance classes, hip-hop is next on the list! I'm so happy the studios are all close to my job so I can just walk in and take a 10min train too. 

Part of the my reasons for letting go, of my pretty good relationship asides from the distance issue, was fear. Fear that I was giving all myself to something/someone and that I hadn't lived. I'll explain more another day, but for now I'm going to try and just live, love myself, and make an impact. So I'm going to start with this dance thing. And then I can check that off my list. :) 

I've got to run now...It's 5.22pm and I need to go thread my eyebrows and grab diner or something with a friend who's visiting.

Have a blessed evening!

Hugs & Kisses,
Miss Enigma!
