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 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
