good bye february, I won’t miss you. hello march.

March 1, 2010 |  Category:   life


I can’t seem to throw these Valentine’s Day flowers out. This is the 3rd time they’ve made an appearance on the blog. Each time I reach for the flowers with the intentions of tossing them, I stop because I think they are still beautiful. I almost prefer them this way, faded and a little shriveled. It’s been 2 weeks. I think I’ll keep documenting their decay.

1:13 am and it’s officially March. I’ve gone back to late nights and doing nothing but working. I’m a bit amused by it all since this was the year that I was going to try and kick client work to the curb, but instead I am freelancing for one the biggest ad agencies working on a commercial brand. Can you say, IRONY? But I get to work with my friend Nichole, who is my total parallel universe twin. This little bit of happenstance just takes the cake.

I’ve never seen more collective sighs about the ending of a month than last month. I certainly feel a weight being thrown off, a fresh start. I’m ready and feeling like a recovery is around the corner. Other than the 2 weeks in between my bouts of bronchitis, I’ve been sick so far every day this year. Aside from 2 trips to the doctor, I haven’t left the house in 7 days. I’ve lost 6 pounds this week. I’ve done nothing but stare at this computer for 4 days straight. Wouldn’t you have cabin fever too?

    Yes i’m very ready for March and I agree with the snow post, no more snow lol. Though a few years back I do recall us getting blasted with about 23 inches in one day. Do not want.

    You know, I had a bouquet of roses that I couldn’t seem to pitch and surprisingly, after they wilted… new leaves started to unfold and it seemingly came back to life magically. I called it the Lazarus rose. Roots even started to form.

    Unfortunately my ex-roommate didn’t notice the magic of dead thing coming back to life and threw them out. If there weren’t reasons enough to hate him, him throwing out a miracle did much to sour my disposition towards him.

    Form of: bright sun

    I’m with you. March is making me happy simply because March sounds so much more pleasant than February.

    Things happen in March. Things wake up in March. Spring arrives in March.


    I love the bouquet in it’s decaying form. Still pretty.

    Yes! Goodbye February, hello March! March is making it easy thus far because the sun is out in full force here.
    I hope your health picks up soon.

    I hope that you’re feeling better! March is bound to bring better things…
    Pretty flowers. I like that fact that you have a hard time getting rid of them. I know that feeling.

    Even though it’s raining buckets, the thought of March is making me happy. I hope March brings you good health.
