As a way to end the year on a relaxing note, I booked a spa package at a nearby salon. I went to the salon early yesterday morning and started with a Swedish massage. I then got a manicure followed by a blowout. I was thankful that my hair was done for me because I don’t think I would have had the energy or the capability to do it myself later in the day.
After I left the spa, I noticed that my wrist was bothering me. One year ago, I was involved in a car accident and I had been honking the horn when the airbag exploded and hit my hand. I had a sprained hand, but I properly took care of it and it healed fairly easily. I didn’t feel any pain during my massage, so I’m not sure how it caused this aching feeling in my wrist.
I came home and immediately wrapped my wrist with a bandage to keep it in place.
At least I have sparkly nails!
New Year’s Eve in New York City was a bit of a nightmare for me last year (think walking on foot for over two hours trying to find a way to get to your hotel and getting extremely sick as soon as you finally arrived at your hotel), so I wasn’t ready to brace the craziness again so soon. Luckily, just spending time with my boyfriend was enough to make the night memorable. Speaking of boyfriends…
In the time that I have been blogging, I have chosen to keep personal things like my dating life private. I’m open to discussing anything that is relevant, but it hasn’t been a topic of interest up until now. Along the way, I’ve received questions about whether or not I’m dating anyone and at this point, I am not. I started dating one of my best friends when I was a freshman in college, but we broke up after attempting a long-distance relationship. At the time, he was in school in another country and maintaining a healthy relationship simply was not feasible. He and I are still good friends and talk on a regular basis, but I’m currently single. I’m not sure if anyone actually cares—I just thought I would clear things up since there has been speculation.
After running a few errands with my dad in the afternoon, I drove to Vienna, Virginia, where Jen’s boyfriend was hosting a party. I was glad to have a low-key night planned, especially since my wrist was still bothering me and an ugly bandage certainly wouldn’t pair well with a glitzy outfit.
Being that the guy-to-girl ratio was 15:4, my night ended up being a lot more fun than expected. I learned a new card game, which I surprisingly won every round, and I enjoyed having the chance to spend the holiday with my sister.
Just like with everything else in my life, I aim to progress in my endeavors and put forth my best effort. With upcoming opportunities, it is likely that my blog will continue to move in new directions. I am extremely excited to put my ideas into action, but I would also love any feedback or constructive criticism. Let me know what I can offer to better improve my blog for your benefit.
