I feel like Iím my 23 year old self again. Close to 7 years ago, Justin Timberlake released ďFuture Sex/Love Sounds.Ē I loved that album! As well as the other album he put out in 2002. I am a pop music addict. So the fact that Justin is putting out some kind of new music soon makes me very very excited!
In 2006, my life was the same yet different. I still worked at Target as the Entertainment Specialist. I had just gotten that position, because my girlfriend, Rachael, who was the specialist before me had just quit. I got to handle the release of ďFuture Sex/Love Sounds,Ē which for me was a big deal.
Rachael and I had been together for about a year at this point and I was still living at home, hiding what I was. I was happy, yet unhappy at the same time. I didnít know how to tell my family. My relationship with my mother was tenuous at that time. Sometimes we were on a good ground with each other, other times we were at each othersí throats. (I am glad that has since changed.)
I was also thinner in 2006. Iím not exactly sure of my weight, but I do know that I was a size 22/24, which is what Iím getting back to. I walked about 6 miles a day while at work. That is the best thing about working retail. You walk and walk and walk while youíre on the job. I kind of wish that I had that level of activity at my job that Iím at now.
As I think back to that time, Iím glad Iím not 23 anymore. Yes I was thinner, but barely. I didnít eat as well as I do now. Had I started to really watch what I eat and enjoy what I eat back then, I would be even thinner. I at fast food often and I didnít like that many vegetable or fruits.
So no, I donít want to be 23 again. I just want to act like Iím 23 again. I want to go to a couple really good concerts, have fun. I want to go and buy Justinís CD because I can and that heís actually putting out a CD makes me very very happy.
