You may have been wondered why I haven’t posted any new stories on my Louie and Jen blog. Sadly, its because we’re no longer getting married and Louie and I have parted ways. “Say Whoaa?” Yes, it’s true but don’t you guys worry as I’m doing ok. I mean, you can’t always predict what hand Life will deal you. And even though this time Life dealt me a shitty hand, it doesn’t mean the game is over. So I’m not going to lock myself in a room and cry about it all day and all night. Only I and I alone can pick myself up and go again. And Life, if you deal me another shitty hand like that again, I’m going to snatch the deck of cards and throw it back in your face! So now let’s play this game and see where it takes us! I’m not going to lie or be delusional by acting all tough and shiet. I admit that there has been tough days and there will be more to come, but you know what? I realised that I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was. I realised that I have wonderful friends and family around me. I have my health, my home and luckily I still don’t have wrinkles yet – Thank god! We live in a first world society and even though we think we’re doing it rough, there is always someone in the world who is struggling much more than we are. Just take a moment to think about it and thank the lord for what you have today. There is no reason to sulk or any reason to whinge, you just got to get up and go again!
So here is to a new beginning at Sass Avenue. A new blog. A new chapter. A new me! Where did Sass Avenue come from, you ask? It was an arbitrary name I threw together whilst I was living in Vietnam and I thought it sounded cool at the time and I knew I wanted to do something with it. So when I returned to Melbourne in 2011, I said f*ck it, lets get the domain name, get myself an ABN and let’s blow this joint! But over the last couple of years I have been consumed by my day jobs, working crazy hours and when I wasn’t working I was with my family or friends.
I had multiple plans and directions for what Sass Avenue would be and what it would become. But you know what? It was all too complex with too many moving parts. All I know right now is that I like to write. I enjoy it. And people have told me that they enjoyed reading my previous blog, so I’m going to keep doing it as it keeps me creative. Lets see where it takes us. But I’d like to also see where YOU take me. Tell me what you wanna hear, see or do. Tell me what you think is cool and what I should be talking or “sassing” about. Or better yet, why don’t you join me in sassing about something you love or hate? You know a good place to hang out? Tell me and we’ll try it out. You know there’s something cool and exciting, well let’s start talking about it: Health, beauty, relationships, fashion, MacDonalds, toilet paper or just something outrageously stupid. You’ve got problems? Tell me and “Yo, I’ll solve. Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it. Ice Ice baby….” – Vanilla Ice (Sorry… I just couldn’t help myself).
That’s what Sass Avenue is all about. It’s a raw blog about anything and everything that is worth sassing about, y’all. It is limitless. Lets just have fun with it! Because that’s what life should be about. Life is too short to be boring.
P.S. I am still going to work on my Jessica Alba body!
