The Urban Nomad Is….Content.

Ah it’s a breezy and slightly rainy Friday evening.  I’m not scrambling around trying to make Friday night plans, I’m not texting up a storm, and I’m not bored. I’m relaxing at home after a long day of writing and working out. For the past two weeks I’ve been running at this lake not too far from my house and I’ve been cycling every day in my room while I blast music and knock out 45 to 60mins on my fitness bike. Living in Denver for 3 years sure did give me a passion for fitness, so I love working out on a daily basis and being out doors.

When I’m not working out, I’m usually working on school work. Believe it or not, online classes are a lot more work than traditional class work. Since everything is done online, including discussions, I spent a lot of time communicating with other students via the forums, writing a lot of mini assignments, and then of course papers. I love writing papers though so that doesn’t bother me much. 10 page paper due tomorrow, no problem! I often wait till the last-minute but I end up getting an A on every paper, so no worries.

But school work doesn’t consume most of my time, a lot of my time is spent writing articles. If you’ve checked me out on Facebook and read my wall, then you know I write for www.hiphopextra.com and recently picked up another gig writing for a very cool Atlanta-based magazine on the topic of relationships (more information coming soon on). I’m not neccesarily giving relationship advice, but rather writing about things that are of interests to those single and those in relationships. Even though I’m single, I still have some interesting opinions concerning love, sex, and relationships, so be sure to stay on the look out for those articles.

I’m really content in life right now, including my single status. I absolutely love being single! I recently realized that I’m quite a busy young woman, barely have enough time in the day just to relax. Don’t get me wrong, I still go out on dates and meet people here and there, but I’m not looking for a serious commitment. I just turned 20 years old (young) and I am coming up on my last three semesters of college, including summer classes. I’m enjoying this time I have to produce quality articles, get in great shape, and continue becoming the best woman I can be.

I wouldn’t mind having a man in my life, but he would have to be the right one…and I mean just right. I can’t deal with anymore short men (sorry guys) but I’m 6ft tall and a man shorter than that isn’t my preference. I love tall men! I saw this cute white guy at Safeway earlier, he had to be at least 6’3”, man such eye candy! Haha, I’m just saying…I like a tall glass of water. So until a guy that is tall, but also ambitious, loving, well educated, and funny comes my way, then I’m riding solo. I’m living my life the way I want and doing things on my own.Whatever I want to do I can “Do It On My Own”. That is actually a song by Remady and Craig David, and it is on my workout playlist. I love running to that song! I start off every run blasting that song and getting lost in a world of my own.

I don’t really have much more to say, except I’m content in life right now and I’m in a healthy place. I’m single, willing to mingle but not stressing it. I’ve been in so many relationships and realized wow, I actually was happier when I was by myself. Yea they make me feel good and all that jazz, but it’s never been something I feel I can do without. I sacrifice so much stuff to be with someone and then realize I’m not feeling it like all that, it’s just cliche. I haven’t met that guy who can make me fall head over heels for his intellect, his body, and his personality. I’m sure once I graduate and expand my life I will maybe meet someone on my level. But until then, I’m content. I’m on my grind with school work, my articles are beginning to get recognition, and I’m happy being who I am. I’m so happy in life right now and it’s not because of some man, it’s because I learned to be by myself. I was always jumping from guy to guy trying to find happiness, when it was right in front of me the entire time….appreciating the beauty of who I am.

Like the song says, “I can do it on my own”. Even though he is talking about a breakup and moving on, the point still stands. You don’t always need someone to make you happy, find your own happiness. And oh I forgot to mention, Craig David is so sexy! I’m just saying….mmmhmmm lol
