feliz ano nuevo!

new year's eve this year was surreal.

after we all went swimming (swimming on new years eve! ludicrous!) and ate dinner, we watched a show that had all these really good brasilian musicians/artists and now i wish i knew who they were so i could get their music... and then as it turned midnight, i stood on the balcony with my family watching fireworks over in the main part of the city. i was wearing a big floofy white blanket* and holding my camera to see if i could catch and good cityscapes/ fireworks shots (i think i got one) eating popcorn and coconut ice cream. (not together ew)

i was not alone on that balcony but i felt like i was. in a good way. and i feel like this year is going to be a good one for me. and if it has plans of not being a good one i'm going to beat it into submission and TURN it into a good one. i feel like i'm ready to work towards being on my own. for me, thats big.
and i don't think this is just one of those spontaneous new year's revelations thats expires around the second week of january. i've been feeling this way for a while. wish me luck.

coming tomorrow: a really interesting show i saw on discovery called wild sex: femme fatale. i will say no more than it was fascinating and horrifying at the same time.

*the reason i was wearing a blanket was because i had learned about 6 minutes before it was midnight that apparently, brazilians wear white on new years. and it was too cold to rock a white tee so i opted for the slightly less fashionable but a tad warmer blanket garment.
