Hello All,

It seems that as each day goes by I am becoming more and more unhappy with my life. I think that part of it is the fact that all of my friends have either gotten married or are in serious relationships and of course I am the odd person out. I don't really mind that I am and enjoy being around these friends but I think that some of these friends rather be with another couple. I have found out about times when the couples have gotten together and I wasn't invited. I admit I was hurt, especially since these are people I have been friends with for years and we were all single together at one point.

I also feel like I'm kinda in a rut in my life. I haven't “grown” a lot in the past years like I thought I would. It's just been work and hanging out with friends. I've even had the same hairstyle for the past oh, all my life I guess, LOL.

Anyway, I'd like to try to totally revamp myself, but don't really know where to start. One problem I have is that I can be painfully shy when confronted with a new situation, which is one thing that I feel like is holding me back. The other is sometime I just don't know how to get started.

Here's a list of some of the things that I would like to do.

Go back to school and take fun classes
Take some cooking classes
Exercise a little
Find a good make-up for me
Find a great wash n wear hairstyle
redecorate my bedroom
Date more
Get to know my neighbors
Find friends that have like interests
Learn better conversation skills (be less shy)
Actually open a bank statement and balance my checkbook
Write more letters and cards to friends and family

Okay, after all that please don't think I'm a complete loser. I do have some very good friends but they are developing lives of their own. I travel a lot and go to the theatre a good bit. But my life just isn't where I would like it to be.

Has anyone else ever felt this way or done anything like this?
