This month is coming to an end. I can say that I spent most of this month thinking and reflecting. This month has been kind and patient to me-- so now, I feel I'm ready for a new start.

This school semester coming up shortly will be my last semester of college. Finally, I'll be graduating from college, man I felt like this school adventure took forever. I look forward to this last semester-- I'm even excited.

I've used this past month to also think about where I am and where I'm going. I thought about my bellydance passion, my education, my day job and the important people in my life today.

Sometimes it's good for all of us to sit back and thank ourselves for the little accomplishments we achieve day by day. I love to think about all the little things that add up to the big things in life.

Life is this beautiful energy that constantly changes and never remains the same. Just like the seasons, we all shift and change. And just like the weather, none of us can really plan our tomorrow, we don't really when it will rain or if it will be sunny.

Yes, this August has made me feel centered. It's the month dedicated to thought.

I really like the color PINK. I've very much attracted to the color, I wear it often and love to use the color against the contrast of black. What I can I say? I dig pink.

I think I have some idea why. For me pink is a soft color but it's also a very strong color. Strong pink colors like fuchsia are strong vibrant-- like sexy and strong women. Light pink colors like baby pink is delicate, soft and graceful-- like the soft side of little girls.

On a website that talks about gemstones and crystal colors, they say pink is a universal love color.

"The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is
the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink
combines these energies.

"Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance...The softer shades are very feminine and darker shades will alleviate feelings of friction."

The color of pink is attributed with friendship, emotional love, affection, harmony, compassion, and inner peace-- wow that's pretty. Other key words of pink:happiness,power, courage, purity, kindness, energy, loyalty, tolerance, faithfulness.

Wonderful words for the color pink. I still love fuchsia pink and black together-- I think it's dark and sexy =)

Stick with the old

So I've decided to stick with my original website instead of making a brand new one... well, at least for now anyway.

I will make a new website someday, I just don't have the time and energy to put into designing a new site right now. I especially don't have time to learn how to navigate a new webhosting program and so forth. School is starting up soon and I don't want to be stuck with a half finished site. It's tacky and not tasteful-- not my style.

Right now I feel too focused on other projects. And as always--- I have many projects that I'm working on all at once. I'd rather keep them to myself, but what I can say is that all my projects have something to do with bellydancing. That's all that I'll give away for now!

At least I am happy to note that I am giving my old website a face-lift. I'm making little changes here and there. Slowly it's transforming, looking cleaner, more organized and better developed. I admire my work so far-- hey, my website looks pretty attractive for a first try. I get compliments every so often and that always makes my day=)

My website is a work in progress. Just like any craft, skill or project, it takes time to perfect. I'm working hard everyday coming up with new ideas and so forth. Again this webdesign thing isn't something I ever had any previous experience doing. I learned everything by myself with just, books, and the Internet. I've only had my website up since Feb 2006. Yes, I'm still a newbie to this.

Shimmyheat is my baby and she's growing stronger everyday... that makes me smile!
