As the year comes to an end, I think that most everyone needs to take a little bit of time and think about the positive things the year has brought to them. Even bad things can turn out to be positive in the end. Sometimes you date a person who wasn’t really right. At the time you got so caught up with the idea of being in love that the person’s faults didn’t matter. In the end the relationship fell apart and you come to realize that it was for the best. Job opportunities come up, and who isn’t thankful for those? To be in a better place making more money is always a wonderful thing. Some choices will cause you to uproot every aspect of life and allow for a new adventure to begin.

Another thing that I think is good to do before the New Year is to think about things you would like to happen. Set a few goals, and make plans on how that goal can be achieved. Also I think it is important to enjoy the present time, and the people who make your life the wonderful gift that it is.

Now, a portion of another story I am working on.

Kayden looked around the room, and she shook her head, “No, how about a little more to the right?” Kayden had recently moved in with her boyfriend Trey, which was a hard transition. The fact that the moving trucks had taken her things to the wrong location didn’t help.

“Kade, we have moved it a little left and a little right so many times. It still isn’t right?” Trey asked as he pushed the queen size bed a little to the right. Trey’s patience was wearing thin; the only thing that kept him going back and forth was his need to keep Kayden happy. As he moved the bed, he could not help but admire her determination to find the perfect placing for all the heavy furniture in her room. Even if that determination was using his strength in the pursuit of the perfect lay out.

Trey loved almost everything about Kayden, her long dirty blonde hair, her personality, her pale skin, her green eyes, and her slim figure. Right now Kayden had a blank expression on her face, which meant that she was thinking about something. Trey knew not to interrupt her though, or she would lose the thought. He sat down on her mattress and wondered if she would be content with the bed’s placement this time.

Kayden was staring out the window into the many fields that were behind her new home. She longed to be in the crowded apartment with her mother but she quickly wiped that thought out of her mind. Kayden was now living with Trey and his family. She hated to think about the reason she was here. Trey’s home was not out in the country but it seemed as though it was, because all that was behind his house was woods and fields. Out front you could see the pathetic town they called home. She found herself wondering what Trey was thinking as he sat on her bed and stared at her, she noticed that his glance settled on her face.

He smiled, “Is it right now?” Trey asked.

“Right for now, I suppose.” Kayden answered as she flipped her hair out of her face. “I wish I had my things though.”

“Well if it is paper and pens you need, we could go out and get you some.” He suggested helpfully.

“I have that stuff in my backpack; I miss my typewriter.” Kayden replied.

“Oh, I don’t think we have one of those, you and your typewriter. You’re so old fashioned.” Trey stated.

“Well we didn’t really have enough for me to get anything better, and now I like my typewriter.” Kayden snapped back.

“Is there anything else I should move for you, honey?” Trey asked.

“No, not that I can see; I wonder what I should do to the walls.” Kayden’s mind always seemed to go from one subject to the next; it could never stay in one place.

“Well, why don’t we go get some ice cream?” Trey asked

“That sounds good to me, where at?” Kayden questioned.

“I don’t know Kade, why don’t we just walk and see where we end up?” Trey suggested.

Kayden knew where they would end up, it would be the old fashioned Ice Cream Parlor down the street, it was Trey’s favorite place, and Trey didn’t like to sound selfish so he would always say “let’s see where we end up”. Every time they would go to the same place. It had good service, nice faculty and everyone at the place knew their names. It was something nice and familiar. When they arrived Kayden ordered her usual, which was a vanilla shake, and Trey got a banana split. Usually Kayden would argue with Trey and say that she had to pay, but she didn’t have the energy to argue today. Plus she didn’t have any money at the moment, she knew at some point in time her mother’s accountant would contact her. He would set up an account with money she gets for losing her mother, but that point in time had not yet arrived.

Happy Holidays!
