We inaugurated a psychopath in the US, froze our buns off, and the sun has barely graced us with its presence. All of these dreary ass days are depressing me like none other. I do suffer from seasonal depression (I am a sun seeking, warm weather human) but thankfully, I know relief is right around the corner.
First stop, Puerto Rico with my bestiesssss. Mia, Arash, and our new BFF Trevor. Trevor has been our favorite fitness coach at the gym since we started and Mia and I decided we would befriend him. It was kind of our goal. We attended his birthday party in December and since, it's been insta friends (in real life, not just gym life). I know it sounds weird to be befriending your trainer but we spend 5-7 hours a week there, it's not that odd to get to know people you see that often. Anyways, Trevor just got out of his first relationship and was in desperate need of an escape so he jumped in last minute. We are super excited to soak up the sun and have some FUN! ANDDDD all four of us are SINGLE! I love these singles trips, I know they'll become far and few between as the years go on so I want to enjoy every second of them while I have them.
After PR I am back for three days of work + Valentines (no plans yet...) and then off to California to see Rami! Obv I am seeing family and friends too but since he bought my flight, I am going to make sure I make time for him first and foremost. That takes me to the 26th of the month aka pretty much gone ALL of February in warm weather locations. When I return it's basically March which is when DC starts to shake the cold off and things start to get fun again. Jan + Feb are snoozeworthy here. No one is really eager to go out and get crazy or host events. It's kinda nice considering we did so much entertaining around the holidays....Arash and I hosted Thanksgiving for 12, Christmas for 10, and I planned a NYE bash for I thinkkkk 14 or 16. It was a busy holiday season.
Oh and people keep asking me about Arash. I am so so so so so glad we hooked up. It has helped me close the door on that completely which gives me an enormous piece of mind. IDK how to explain it but I don't even view him as an attractive fella anymore, it all switched after the second time we hooked up. His indecisiveness and lack of confidence when it comes to career goals is definitely a deal breaker and I am relieved I had the opportunity to test drive it for a quick second and then close the door with complete confidence that it was the right choice.
I love efficient strategy. I get off on finding better ways to do things. I love jam packing as much as I can into a busy day. (I also enjoy being lazy as fuck and working from my bed, balance people) The way Arash loads a dishwasher drives me bat shit insane. The way he thinks and how un-strategic it all is makes me scream. He is so aloof and sweet...head in the clouds, always. IDK I just can't handle it for the long haul. The other day he said he thinks he might die alone. UMMMM you are a gorgeous Persian man...there is no way. He also met with a financial advisor to discuss retiring at 40 to move to Thailand and be a scuba instructor....I can't handle it.
Enough is enough on that note.
I am ready to get outta DC and into the sunshine. I have a pile of work that I need to get done before I go but I am confident I will get shit done and be able to leave feeling gooooood.
I'm gonna try to write while away (9-13th) but if I don't, check back in with me on Valentines Day!
