Clothed and in my right mind. [Oct. 16th, 2011|04:35 pm]
[mood |apologetic]
[music |Magnetic Fields, "I Think I Need A New Heart"]

Right then.

First off I owe massive apologies to most people reading this and some people who probably aren't reading this who I need to track down and abjectly apologize to as well, for dropping completely off the map sometime in these last two and a half years or so. Not cool. I am very sorry. This is a very bad pattern with me and I am going to try to be better about it in the future, about staying in touch with people I value, instead of retracting like a hermit crab.

So I quit my job teaching after I fainted over there a couple of times-- I was drinking pretty heavily and not eating enough and just generally a bit of a mess-- started seeing a grief counselor, got an apartment with my sister, got a job at Starbucks, and now I am still working at Starbucks and loving it and have made a bunch of friends over there, and have just cashed in a bunch of stocks my grandfather bought for me when I was a baby for a down payment on an absolutely gorgeous little condominium in an absolutely gorgeous neighborhood with giant oak trees all around and sunshine and a used-book store and an Indian buffet a ten minutes' walk away, and my parents' house about a 25-minutes' walk away. And I'm thinking about going back to school at UNC-G to get my master's in counseling & educational development, but we'll see about that, it's just something I've been thinking about. And I think I want to start blogging again, or whatever this is, and catch up with people who are here (and some people who aren't here), so. More to come.

I was just thinking about you today -- no joke -- because I wore the Knitty pattern gloves you made me for the first time this season. I wear them all the time; they are still looking good. Guess this means I should post here from time to time.

I'm so glad to hear from you again. =)

And believe it or not, if you send me your new address, I've got a small gift I've been going "Hmmmmm, how can I track down Sav and send this..." for ages for you. (it is not exciting. On the other hand, gift!)

I have missed you so much, and I have been horrible about keeping in touch. We need a movie(s in 15 minutes) night.

I don't really post here much right now, but I will gear myself up for a long and catch-up-y post in your honor. (:

OHAI! I am basically gone from LiveJournal, but fortunately enshanam dropped me a line to let me know you had popped up. I have missed you, and am so happy to hear you are creating good things in your life.

I have the same email. My website is sort of fail right now, so I'm not really blogging, but I'm on Twitter and Facebook and Google Plus. Which really makes me sound like so much more of a "social networking" person than I actually am...

Glad you are in a more well place in life. I had wondered. I do hope you continue to let us know what's going on. Always did like when you did that.

I know this is very late to respond to this. I haven't been to livejournal in a couple of years. I think about you a lot, but have hesitated quite a bit because I didn't want to bother you. I don't always know how to react when people withdraw; whether they still want to be contacted but are conserving emotional energy or if they really want and need to be left the hell alone. I hope that you're still writing somewhere, and that things are good in your condominium with the sunshine. If you do want to talk again, I'm on facebook or gmail. Either way, I am thinking about you always. xoxo

Been lurking on livejournal off and on over the past couple years. I've missed your presence on here. Hope everything is going okay.
