The New ‘Girl’ In My Life


As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been doing a bit of redecorating in the past few days and last night, I dug out an amazing print that I’ve been meaning to display for months but never got the chance to hang. My dear friend Tamar gave David and me a print of one her photographs and last night I had it framed for display in my bedroom. The print is titled Broken Robot Girl #1 and it’s beautiful.

Now that I have this place to myself, I’m really intent on making it reflective of who I am. When you share a home with someone, you have to compromise so that both parties are happy. I never begrudged the minimal decorating style that David likes but now that I’m here alone, I want move away from minimal and bare walls to a more lively esthetic. I picked up a couple of art pieces that are being delivered next week and I have an idea for a massive photograph for one big blank wall and, well, I’m excited. As the holidays draw near, I’m doing the best that I can to find excitement and happiness wherever I can. It’s not easy, tho. This Xmas will be the first one in almost 7 years that I’ll be spending alone, without a partner. It’s tough, as I’m sure you can well imagine. Little things like personalizing my home have been keeping me occupied and kinda happy so … yeah.

No big plans for today. I’m hoping to meet up with Jordan tonight. It’ll be the first time I’ve seen him since his birthday party in Palm Springs a few weeks ago so it’ll be nice to catch up. I hope all y’all are having a nice Hump Day. Happy Wednesday!

    I love that print!
    You seem to be doing well and that makes me happy. It’ll take some time because, afterall, it was a long relationship. You look fabulous and one day, before you know it, your outside will match your insides.

    Many hugs, Trent and in case I forget to mention it later, Merry Christmas. XOXOXO!

    Hang in there Trent. I’m glad to hear that you are taking steps to get in touch with yourself and the little things that bring you joy. This piece is absolutely stunning! I love the idea of a huge photo for one wall too.

    Keep surrounding yourself with supportive friends over these next couple of weeks and before you know it, you’ll have a whole exciting new year to look forward to. I have faith that 2013 will be an amazing year for you!

    You know Trent, it might sound hackney, but it is so true none-the-less. You might be alone (for now) but you don’t have to feel lonely. You have many amazing friends who love you & it seems you have chosen an inner-circle of family that would champion you to the rest of the world! And of course you have all of us out here in PITNB cyberspace! So feel all the love that you have sent out & let the voice in your head be posotive today! :-)
