Winter Holiday

My boyfriend and I are planning on going somewhere hot in February. I’ve only been to the tropics once in 2007 when I went to Cuba with my last boyfriend. I’m not really sure where we are going to go on this trip. I’m kind of leaving it up to him since it was his idea to go. I would really like to go back to Cuba because I had a good experience there. But for the same reason, I don’t think my current boyfriend wants to go there. I think I would be comfortable going anywhere except for Mexico, which is where he wanted to go. I just hear so many horror stories from there. But I guess most people are fine when they go there.

What tropical places have you been to? Did you book through a travel agent or did you just book online yourself? Do you have any places/resorts you would recommend? I would really like to go to an all inclusive resort, which is what I did in Cuba. It’s so nice not having to worry about buying food, drinking all the free alcohol you want, and just lazying around on the beach.

Do you think it’s better to book the trip now or wait until February and find a last minute deal? I’m a planner. It makes me so nervous when things are not all booked beforehand. I’m trying really hard to be patient and just let things happen. Planning my life has backfired so far so I’m really trying to just go with the flow.

I’m Getting Old

I’ve been noticing the effects of getting older lately. I’m not as patient as I used to be, especially at work. I have become more of a complainer, about everything, and I hate it. I’ve also noticed changes physically too. I used to love walking to work. But now, it makes my legs tired. I would much rather drive. Maybe it’s because I’ve been spoiled over the last year or two by getting drives all the time from my boyfriend. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I don’t exercise any more like I know I should be. My legs don’t like walking to work and then standing for the next 8-9 hours.

But I also feel like it could just be a mood I’ve been in, for like the last three years lol. Ever since I moved to Alberta, I haven’t really found people that I would really call my friends. I have a hard time making friends, either because I’m too busy, or because I’m too picky. Maybe I’m just not trying hard enough. I only really have one true friend and I haven’t even seen her in over a year because she lives so far away.

I miss my Halifax life. I miss the people I used to hang out with (even if they act like I no longer exist). Basically I miss my past. I know you’re not supposed to live in the past, but right now I feel like I’m wasting away my life. I really hope my future gets more exciting than my current life is.
