Oh how I've lived.

"It's not hard to die, when you know you have lived; and oh, how I've lived."
-Desperate Housewives

Oh how I've lived.

I am proud to say that when my time on earth comes to an end, I'll experience my departure with that profound statement in mind. I am proud as to how I've lived my life thus far; I'm proud of the big life I am living now; I am proud of the future life I know I will persevere and life; I am proud, so proud, that I lived. I am happy that I am not content with monotony and an average life. In my leap, I've accomplished things that most folks will never be able to do. I am seeing things that take my breath away and meeting people that blow me away. Each day continues to excite me, for I am grateful for the complexity and simplicity of my new life.

60 years from now, I am happy that I'll have a "way back when" story to share with my grandchildren.

Are we all doing things we are proud of? We have a short time to live, so lets all make the most of it.

The other evening I went to the Britney Spears concert. I know what you are thinking, but you are so wrong. Regardless of her personal struggles, that girl can put on a show. The essence of a circus set the stage for the entire night. With wild circus stunts, 'trippy' music and the overall ambiance, I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with the entertainment value of the entire night. As a dancer, I also appreciated the intense choreography and set. All eyes on the ringleader, as she commanded 20,000 screaming fans attention. I am happy for Britney Spears; although her life went off trail, she is back, and stronger than ever.


I have a bad cough. Allergies are awful. The majority of us, while enjoying the beautiful sights of spring, have to choke on our own breath, just because we are allergic to so many different things. If any of my awesome readers have any advice as to how to reduce allergies, please share!



The weather was 90 degrees today in SoCal, how was the weather in your hometown? That picture can tell you exactly where I spent my day!




After hours of reading around the pool, I decided to tie up the Puma's and hit the road! By road, of course, I mean the sidewalk. I ran a nice two miles under the blaring sun, and I feel great! After that, my good friend Cousin Joey and I went out to dinner. We shot the breeze, ate some Italian food and I'm feeling great. This turned out to be one heck of a weekend. I'm tying it all together by watching my shows. Any opinions on 'Desperate Houseweives' or 'Brothers & Sister?

Take care buddies!

If your allergies are caused by the local plants, you may want to try finding some locally "grown" honey. About a teaspoon a day of it has been shown to take the edge off your allergy symptoms. Just make sure the honey is local.

Nice photo shot, Nick!

I admire what Brittany Spears is doing..she insisted the fans at a Toronto(I think) show stop with the pot smoking. Makes me think she's serious. I know she looks healthy for sure!

Glad you had a good time.

Allergies...mine went away a few years back for some unknown reason...magic? If I could figure out why and bottle it I'd be rich.

Great post Nickie, Let me tell you
life is good at any age, just so you make it another year. It is your own fault if you have regrets, which I have none!You know that I have always made the best of every minute of my life and I still continue to enjoy new horizons. May 6th, I'll have an art piece that will be entered in my very first art exhibit. So life goes on and I am grateful for each and every new experience. Sorry your allergies are making you nuts, I use a saline spray a couple times a day to flush the allergens out. Can be purchased over the counter at any drug store. Keep on experiencing your great journey.
Love you, A.E.

Sounds like you are living the life. It's great to be optimistic, just make room for a little dissappointment. If not, it could be that much more devastating.

Stay on track. You are doing great! I'm still excited to know you are strong in determination.

Still waiting for that moment when you look upon us "little people" and I can say..."I knew him when"...

Desperate Housewives was trippy wasn't it? I didn't know that was going to happen. There wasn't enough crying in the movie.
It's death...people.

I love, love, love your optimism...I have so much catching up to do with your writing! I just gt done with my exam :)

As for allergies, I have bad allergy too, but mines the itchy little red spots where I scratch type, usually my arms and neck..and my nose gets blocked. Zyrtec, once a day is great, best in the morning. It's non prescription and doesn't slow you down. Really, 've tried them all.

And showering at night is better than in the morning, because your skin is more sensitive and exposing yourself when you go out isn't great.

Hope the advice helps :)

As for Desperate Housewives, I didn't think that would happen, but the episode was quite touching, showed Edie in a new light.
