Old is the New Young

It’s my birthday. And I just realized, I’ve seriously neglected writing here. Not a surprise. Things have been… curiously slow, but still kind of crazy. I actually have some other posts drafted up, but I just haven’t published them yet. There are not many plans going on for today. We’re going to go out to […]

Reflection on 2015

It’s December. And what do I typically do during this month? I reflect. And quite honestly, this year royally sucked. When you get down to the nitty gritty, I didn’t accomplish anything that I had hoped to do this year.

Moving Along

It’s been a busy week. I actually have a life and that’s kind of scary to me. It’s nice though to have something to look forward too rather than sitting at home waiting for someone who never really wanted to exist with me. He finally deleted our connection on facebook. I’d blocked him on everything […]

More Real

Things have been becoming more and more real. Friends and boyfriend helped this weekend to load my things into storage. Pretty much all nonessential items were taken to the unit and stacked away. I have a few more things to haul there, but can do that over the next little while. I still have quite […]
