It is my 27th year (actually I think it's my 28th because when you turn one then you've completed a year, no?). Anyway, I'm closing in on 30 and it's not that I'm freaking out or anything (not at all, I welcome but tis perhaps the time to get something done. Since I"m the kind of person who can't multi-task very well, I am, yet again, taking a year off from the real world. A couple of years ago I took time off to "travel". To find out how well that went (or if you need a good laugh) go to
This year I am going back to my roots and returning to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (I know, right? Poor me!) to live closer to my grandmother :)
So what do I plan to accomplish? Well, first I've already learned my lesson about "planning" and so I will refrain from using that word and instead I will set some goals or, if you prefer, resolutions.

Here we go:
1) Actually move to Puerto Vallarta
2) Spend more time with my family
3) Become a dual citizen
It's not that easy when you're an adult
4) Finish the first draft of my book
That's right! I've declared my occupation as "writer"
5) Lose 20 pounds
I know this one's a cliche but really if I don't lose weight then I'm just lazy. I'll have the beach to walk on, healthier food to eat, and quite a bit of time.
6) Travel
Kind of like last time but perhaps a bit more realistically

Something missing? Those of you who know me know that I've been living on the corner of Single Street and Loser Avenue for a while, but finding a boyfriend is not going to be a resolution and honestly I don't think I ever want it to be. I prefer to leave that in the hands of Fate.

Dear Fate,
Get off your ass and find me a boyfriend.

Ok, we start on January 1st 2010 those of you who wish to come along are welcome, there's plenty of room.
