Pain is incorporated into our everyday lives. Whether it’s physical like tripping on the sidewalk, getting waxed, or squeezing into your two-sizes-too-small stilettos. Or if it’s emotional: a break up, loneliness, or even more, death. You never know what will happen in the future. Plans change. One event can lead to another that you weren’t expecting. It’s all fate. I believe you choose your fate. Maybe you’re destined to go somewhere, meet certain people, make certain decisions. But the way you get there is all on you. I also believe you learn from your mistakes. You learn to just let go of your amazingly gorgeous stilettos after resisting for all of these years. These events lead you to come face-to-face with fate, but pass it without many difficulties. I can’t help but wonder: if I could part with my Christian Louboutins after struggling and pain, why is it so difficult to part with other relationships? I loved my shoes. I fought with them. They hurt me. And I miss them. But I can forgive-and-forget. I’m not saying shoes are people. But why do relationships, even the smallest ones, leave such a lasting impression on you? Maybe its the fact that you may always think it can work out again: even if they are in another relationship, they could separate. Even if they’ve moved, they can always come back. The fact of the matter is, it was fate. You went through exquisite pain when it was over, but you have to forgive-and-forget.

“Cause I’m not your princess.
This aint a fairy tale.
I’m gonna find someone someday
Who may actually treat me well.
It’s too late for you and your white horse
To try and catch me now.”
-“White Houses”, By Taylor Swift

Ever since I was a little girl, I remembered to go around the black cat, walk to the side of the ladder, toss salt over my shoulder, and to avoid any heavy type of machinery on Friday the 13th. These superstitions are the common ones. Well the other day, I opened an umbrella inside, and I think it came into effect today.

I woke up this morning, not expecting what was to happen. I got up, went to the gym, got my Venti Vanilla Latte from Starbucks, and went to work. As I sat down at my desk, I went through all of my e-mails, all of my phone messages, all of my text messages. It was a normal day in the life of Zoe George.

I met up with “Samantha” for a quick lunch at Eli’s for our semi-weekly play date for the salad bar. As I was walking down the steps of the 86th street subway, I hear the classic blackberry “Beep! Beep!”. I look down, while grabbing my metro card. It was “Trey”. I stopped in my footsteps, completely unaware of all of the traffic. All I could look at was his name in the column. Being nudged a few times by a mean old man to get out of the way, I went down to the subway.

Eventually, as I squirmed for a seat on the train, I got up enough courage to look down at my phone.

"I made a mistake. I miss you. Call me soon. Love you."

 I quickly wrote a reply:

"I miss you too. When can we see each other again?"

I pressed send. Anyone who has ever been in the New York City subway knows that although it has air-conditioning for those unbearable hot summer days, there is no cell service.

Later that day I got to thinking: what if it was a blessing in disguise that that mean old man nudged me down the subway stairs? What if it was my conscience warning me about “Trey”? I know that I will make mistake texts, send them without really thinking about the consequences. But I also can’t help but wonder, what would have happened if I hadn’t opened that umbrella? For the next few days I have a feeling I’ll be turning pennies over so people can have good luck and thinking of four leaf clovers, horseshoes, and rabbit feet.

Recently, I had a mini-Sex and the City Marathon. I do it periodically: watch some of my favorite episodes with a cosmo in hand, a Vogue by my side, with stilettos on my feet. We all have our traditions, right?

This is a happy tradition. Something that picks me up when I’m down. I’ve done this for a long time when work gets hard, there’s tension between my friends and me, and in this case, when I’m having relationship problems. Sadly, this wasn’t a problem that could be solved.

Halloween night, I went out with the girls. “Carrie” and I met up for drinks at one of our favorite restaurants, Pop Burger, and then walked over to the Parade. For those of you who aren’t aware with the parade, it’s filled with some pretty strange and/or drunk people: trannys, drunk and high teenagers, and a lot of people dressed up in a costume of either two options: scary or skanky. But anyways, it’s been a tradition with my friends for the past few years to go to the parade together. This happened even before I met “Trey”. So I went with my friends dressed more as skanks, of course. “Trey” was flying back from Toronto that night, so I decided to go out but come back semi-early sot hat I could surprise him in my not so scary outfit. Turns out, I come home and find him with one of the many “Sarah Palins”.

Why can nothing last forever? As I sat by my computer for what felt like the millionth time, I couldn’t help but wonder: Why are the bad things in life always credited for, but we barely even notice the good?

Since then, I try to watch at least one Sex and the City episode weekly. It makes the good times oh-so much better.

Hey everyone,
Sorry I haven’t been been writing a lot recently. I’ve had a lot on my mind and a lot of work to do. Things between “Trey” and I have gotten pretty bad. Work is really overwhelming. As you may have read on my friend Meg’s blog (A Vogue Idea), Samantha is becoming much more distant. To quote Meg, it’s so “Un-Sex and the City”. But anyways, as a highlight to my pretty terrible week, I’ve found a few great songs that I love and decided to share with you. Here they are:

Whatever You Like and Live Your Life- T.I. (Live Your Life feat. Rihanna)

 

Love Story by Taylor Swift

Now or Never; The Boys are Back- High School Musical 3 Soundtrack

I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You- Black Kids

I’m Yours- Jason Mraz

Let It Rock- Kevin Rudolf feat. Lil Wayne

Hot N Cold One of the Boys- Katy Perry

Cry for You- September

Je veux te voir- Yelle

Love Remains the Same- Gavin Rossdale

Everything- Michael Bublé

These songs put a smile on my face when I really need it. Love Story is a cute story within a song. High School Musical was actually surprisingly good. It wasn’t only amusing for little kids. The Black kids song is very upbeat and fun to dance to. I’m Yours is really cute. I love all of Jason Mraz’s songs and saw him in concert, which made me fall even more in love with him. Let It Rock is fun and rap with alternative. Hot N Cold is so fun to dance to and the lyrics are fun. Cry for You reminds me a lot of Cascada, fun techno music. Je veux te voir was very popular when I was in Paris this past summer and is so energetic. Love Remains the Same and Everything are cute love songs. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

PS. Happy Halloween!! What were you? I was Little Miss Muffet. 😀
