Countdown

Soon it will be 2011. I’ll be sipping wine or champagne in my new shirt, bought with borrowed money especially for the occasion. With my new hair cut, the one that bankrupted me and left me with $7 in my bank account. But you can bet I’ll look good in the Facebook album. You can bet that when I look back in years I won’t remember how on edge I was, that I’ll only see the hair cut and the sparkly shirt and think that everything’s okay. I’ll be hoping that others think that too, and that I don’t drink so much wine that I can’t keep up the mask.

And I’ll be wishing, you can bet on it, at 11:59:59, for something to happen.

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll have more than $7.

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll have someone to kiss at midnight.

Wishing that maybe next year I’ll be stumbling home to my own apartment downtown.

I’ll make this list in my head, in desired order, of what I’d like the universe to bring me next year. And I’ll send it out there. I’ll bargain with life and luck for what I want, make promises to be better or nicer or appreciate things for, if only the universe’ll let me have them.

Not even all, but at least one, okay?

    Is that $7 in your debit account, or $7 left of an overdraft? Because $7 in your debit account isn’t THAT bad… *grin*

    I hope you’re not putting too much faith in fate; much better to invest in luck!

    We all still hope for better things. I think finding peace of mind is harder than finding a job or a partner.

    I hope the new year brings you everything you wish for. Especially the money in the bank account, since that seems to be the most pressing matter at the moment (hopefully there will be a job attached to that money). Hang in there :)
