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.
