it's been like, what, 2 years since I REALLY wrote here. going through different stages...work, school, life, moving, moving, moving. i moved closer to the city, but not actually in the city...which was a good compromise since i hate city noises. i'm just not a fine-with-listenin-to-every-language-spoken-under-the-sun-over-mariachi/mexi-music kinda girl. but i most definitely couldn't live where i first stayed when i moved out west...i'm sorry, but tech yuppies just aren't my scene either.
jared and i have kinda settled in with living together. we're both in stay-at-home mode so often it's given some time to really appreciate the house. and its finally given me writing mode back =)
i do a crapload of writing now, for a living....at a non-profit. it's just a little strange, because, its like, when did i become responsible? gone are the days of blowing my money on clothes and alcohol. and i'm in grad school...which is something that, i don't know, i'm still not fully realizing.
since really establishing myself here in sf, i've lost some of my friends. not so sure who i've mentioned in the past (or if i even mentioned in this journal)...but in the last year, my small town buddies from yore have dwindled down to just one...lynn, my best friend of 17 years. celeste and i had the most ridiculous falling out about a year ago. i just got tired of her flakiness. so, no patience + her flakehood = gettin in some real tense shit with her. mind you, this was all through email, because, what would a flake be if she actually talked to me in person. now not talking to her has left me not talking to her husband (whose wedding, by the way, i was a bridesmaid in). lovely how friendships can be NOT friendships over email. technology seriously is a wonderful thing.
michael and i have drifted too. i mean, i understand, he's in med school and has, like, doctoring crap to do, but whatever. phone calls don't take very fuckin long is all i'm sayin. it's just been something like a 2 year phone tag with him. god, to think right before i moved, a lot of weekends, it was just me and him...talking about life and experiencing life. i would be completely lying to say i didn't miss him...miss that...but time, distance, and new york has really disjointed us.
anyway, i could go on, i guess, but i'll end it here. hopefully i'll run into my old lj buddies again. to be continued...probably tomorrow =)
