old pictures

I rarely post pictures of myself but here I am in one of my favorite dresses. It is the perfect little mini cocktail dress from the swinging 60's. It has sheer organza sleeves, crstal buttons on the cuffs and metallic embroidery at the waistline. Since I collect dresses and haven't gotten around to wearing them all - yes, admitted hoarder - I am never sure if one will make it out of my closet and into the world. However this little number cannot stay hidden. I am wearing it with BCBG girls suede platform heels ( will not use the term "booties" ) and a cute little bag I bought in the Mission from a girl selling things outside her car. I got the dress from Mission Thrift for about 20-30 bucks. Mission Thrift was my go to place about two years ago when I lived in SF. I recently went back and the vintage dress collection is so sadly non-existent. The market has really changed. I am glad I went on a major collecting spree when i did as the bargains are just not what they used to be. It seems that everyone has finally caught on to the superior quality that I knew was there all along.

(pardon the blur face, as I said before, I think I am just kinda fuzzy in reality )

Been a bit down lately, as it goes. Life is apparently up and down. A series of changes. So again need to pull myself out of it.
Steps :
1. Exercise
Went to the Y, $69 per month.
CON:You can't even try it out which sucks. PRO:It is 2 blocks from home which is nice. Lot's of classes, really big. Open from 5-10.
Decided to try 24hr Fitness
CON: It's 24hr fitness, blahh - although the equipment appears upgraded. Not too many classes.
PRO: 32$ per month with no contract, if it doesn't work I can quit easily. 5 blocks from home. open 24hrs. Gave me a week pass.
2. Meditation
Worked for me before, always works. There is definiteley something to this. Going to give it a go with trying sound meditations. I have a series of Theta waves cd's which has worked in the past.
3. Count Your Blessings
Double edged sword for me. I feel worse because I know that there are people who have real problems and I can sink into feeling sorry for myself for nothing. Then I feel like an ass for being that way. Self-Hate is not helpful here.
But I am grateful for all that I am. Need to build on this.
So that's what I have so far. just a bit of the doldrums.....
