  Nannying is Not for Me! So much for establishing an easy way to keep in touch! If ever the mood strikes you to do something like this, I would advise that you set up shop at least a good long time in advance because this website is a big fat mess.

Friends, do not worry the New York files are coming soon. If you have ever read The Nanny Diaries though, you have a good idea of what went down. I read it myself, about a year ago. And thought of it as some very amusing fiction, but it's actually an amazingly accurate description of what life is like in that world.



Sometimes I make these notes in my head about what's going on around me. Like, I see something happen and construct the sentences to describe it in my mind. Like I'm writing a story, but I never actually write it. It's sort of like talking to yourself, and the less actual social interaction I have, the more I do it. So, when I went to a totally new place and threw myself into the lives of these three children I had a lot of in-my-head time to do this sort of thing. And I kept catching myself thinking, I have read something just like this before. The Nanny Diaries people. Read it. The stories are true. The alphabetized lingerie drawers, the older (cheating) husband married to the younger woman, the special water for ironing, the attention-starved children who cannot be amused, the hidden cameras, and the Nanny trying to make life comfortable for this woman who does not cook, clean, or take care of her own children.

It was wild. I enjoyed the city, I enjoyed the experience, but I was quite glad to be packing my bags on Wednesday. Any sense of dissapointment was overshadowed by excitement because I realized that I was for sure not going to miss the FRIENDS finale and also that the trip to Miami meant more TrueBlue points for me, HaHa!

So anyway, now things are sort of up in the air. Which is ok because it's been a while since I've stepped back like this. I have no responsibilities. None. It's nice. I'm thinking about a lot things and taking suggestions, too.




 

Name:
Location: Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States

I spend excessive, unhealthy amounts of time online. Usually I'm reading blogs, sometimes I'm working on my website, if I’m not doing that, I'll look up random stuff and decide that I'm educating myself about current events. When I was growing up I thought that People Magazine was the news because my Mom read it all.the.time. I say inappropriate things in public. I'm almost always wearing the same things. I have a lot of clothes, but there are like 5 things that I always wear. I went to school, never graduated and I don't think that I will. Not from there, anyway. But I do want to finish a degree somewhere. I love hotels. I really just want to wrap up all of the school stuff so that I can own my own hotels. Michelle's hotels. Doesn't that sound pretty? Except I wouldn't call them that. I don't know what I would call them. I love so much music. It makes no sense how I can get down to such a wide and odd variety. I am talking from Wilson Phillips to Petey Pablo. It's because I didn't really start listening to music besides church music till later in life so it's all just like WOW, so fascinating to me. Maybe, I don't know, I tend to overanalyze.
