Happy New Year!



Well, I should have known 2010 wasn't going down without a fight.

I have been violently sick for the past two days and it looks like I'm not getting any better. At first, I thought it was just another hangover from my birthday parties earlier this week, but now it looks way more severe. I can't eat anything other than ice, otherwise I vomit my guts out. Just thinking about food, or even CHAMPAGNE, makes me nauseous. It's pretty bad.

So, I'm staying with my parents for a couple days while I recover. I'll be ringing in the New Year with a cup of ice and Ryan Seacrest, I'm afraid. Unless he makes me vomit too.

It is my sincerest wish that 2011 will not suck as much as its recent predecessors. I hope it will be more like 2005, where I was happy all the time and life seemed endless with possibilities. Or, I at least hope it will be much better than 2010. I don't know. There are some major changes happening this upcoming year and it churns my stomach just to think about them. But I'll just follow the advice of my hero, Tim Gunn, and "make it work." That's all you can do, right?

Looking back on 2010, it occurred to me that although it seemed like the worst year of my life, it was one where I grew the most as a person.

I lost my job, but I regained my self-discovery. I spent a lot more time writing for myself and realizing where I want to go in life.

I lost my grandmother, but I had a close friend who had a baby this year. It made me realize the endless beauty of life and made me less scared of death.

I lost a close friend, but I made three really good ones soon after. I'm pretty sure that was a miracle.

I lost my mind. But I'll get it back.

This is how I am going to look at 2010 from now on. It's all I can do!

I hope all of you have a magical new year. I think we all deserve it.

See you in 2011.

I learned a lot in 2010 too, but that doesn't mean I want to repeat ANY of it. :)

2011 is going to be better for us. It's our intention, so it will HAPPEN. :)

I lost my mind years ago and my virginity soon followed.

If it's any consolation you haven't lost me sweetie. I think this year will bring you good things, I'm wishing it.

Please feel better soon. Love you more than ever.

Hope you feel better soon. That's a sorry state of affairs when the thought of champagne makes you feel sick. I agree that 2010 was kind of sucky. Things can only get better - right?

Hope you had a wonderful New Year & hope you feel much better! I hope 2011 is a much better year for you :)

I'm so sorry that you're sick. :( That's terrible, but I know you'll get better!
Just think positive. My Nana used to tell me, be careful what you do on the passing of a year (midnight going into the new year) because it will be something that you'll be doing for the rest of the year. So just always think positive.
I'm glad you got to grow a lot this year too, that's always important.
Love You Fabulous!
:)

Firstly I'm very sorry to hear that you are so ill I hope you are better soon. I have been sick lately too and it was especially annoying because I lost my voice for almost the entire time I was away for the new years weekend. I remember about a year ago when we were talking about 2010 and hoping it would be a good year. I can't believe it has been the worst year of both of our lives that doesn't seem fair. I think that with everything you have been through it is very admirable that you can look so positively at things in this post. I sincerly hope that 2011 is much better for you, as I do for myself. You deserve that my beautiful friend. I don't know what major changes you have but I will be thinking of you whatever they are. For me, I have had some of those in 2010 and thats why I had such a hard year and its difficult to explain this to people I normally don't tell anyone the full extent of them. But anyway I know what its like. For me, I am trying to learn some acceptance but I haven't much yet.

If it makes you feel any better at all, I hear 2010 was a shitter for everybody. Not to downplay your experiences at all, but I have a feeling the tides will turn in 2011 :) All the best, and thankyou for your blog..
