Valentines Day is a day that I’ll probably never forget. It’s the anniversary of the day when I started stripping.
I can’t believe that was SIX years ago. Wow.
As many of you know, I no longer strip. I “retired” about a year ago for various reasons. As strange as this sounds, choosing to strip was the best decision I ever made. I learned a lot about myself, and hopefully I’ve broken stereotypes for the “haters” out there. Most importantly, my odd part time job helped launch a writing career.
That Valentines Day 6 years ago was both depressing (since I was going through a breakup) and profitable.
I fast forward to this year and it was entirely different story…I was a guest on XM’s Opie and Anthony Channel’s Bob and Russ Show plugging Rick’s Cabaret and this very blog (and my book coming out in December 09!)
I remember feeling pretty lousy six years ago…but I can honestly say I feel great about where I am right now. For the first time ever, a friend of mine said to me last night, “Happy Anniversary!”…and I was like, “Huh?” and he said, “Well your life changed pretty dramatically six years ago on Valentines Day…that’s a big deal.”
So yeah…this was the best Valentines Day ever.
Oh…except for one thing…It turned out that Mystery was not a live guest on the show, he called in from Los Angeles. So it wasn’t THAT perfect of a day…but pretty close to it.
