I plan to actually try to blog something every day this year. I want to get back into it and use it as a creative outlet and an place to update family and friends on life, like I used to. In so many ways, I feel like I'm still settling in to life here in OC and the shock of yet another move is still lingering some 9-months later. It's been *really* hard at times, harder in ways I did not expect. Hopefully, this will be a place I can be real and write. I do love blogging and plan to be more proactive this year.
For today, here's some random information: a junior high bully of mine just friended me on Facebook. It was really weird to see her "friend request" staring at me from my inbox. She left some residual pain in my life and it's come up from time to time these past 15 years. Isn't it odd how something you think you've dealt with will still surprise you with untapped emotion? It took many years for me to forgive her and a few others at the small, Christian school I went to for their years of bullying. But, I feel I've been able to move on and grow and put the past pain and hurt behind me. So, I friended her. And I wrote on her wall. It was actually sort of freeing. Very cool.
