I’m Bringing Sexy Back… Yeah!
Friday, January 11, 2013
I feel like I’m my 23 year old self again. Close to 7 years ago, Justin Timberlake released “Future Sex/Love Sounds.” 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 “Future Sex/Love Sounds,” 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 didn’t 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 others’ throats. (I am glad that has since changed.)
I was also thinner in 2006. I’m not exactly sure of my weight, but I do know that I was a size 22/24, which is what I’m 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 you’re on the job. I kind of wish that I had that level of activity at my job that I’m at now.
As I think back to that time, I’m glad I’m not 23 anymore. Yes I was thinner, but barely. I didn’t 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 didn’t like that many vegetable or fruits.
So no, I don’t want to be 23 again. I just want to act like I’m 23 again. I want to go to a couple really good concerts, have fun. I want to go and buy Justin’s CD because I can and that he’s actually putting out a CD makes me very very happy.
