I'm adjusted

Several months have passed and I have adjusted to living by myself. It does help that I'm with David on the weekends and I work all day but still. I'm glad I have adjusted well. I could have very well been mopey, all 'woe is me', but it's not. Haru is clingy more than ever but that's because he's lonely. That's what he gets for being mean though.

I'm at a pretty good place right now. Certain things could be better that what I would like but I'm working on it. ^.^


So I'm pretty much settled into my new place. It is small but perfect for me and Haru. =) I'm thinking of calling it Haru's Place. On a side note, why do most people feel the compulsion to name everything?
I just need to do some last few details and I'm done.

Work is going great. And I just saw that Tami started working with me! Whoo! I'm so happy for her. The last I spoke with her, she still didn't have a job. And she didn't deserve the treatment she got at Beth Ingram. So, overall I would say life is going swimmingly. If I say anything better than that, I have a feeling everything's going to turn to shit. LoL. I am content though.

Good stuff.


It hit me today that soon Frank will be moving away and I'll actually be living alone. Holy crap. It's been so busy the last few weeks with people coming in from out of town and trying get the apartment stuff taken care of. And it's not over yet. I gotta get Frank up to DC and then get myself moved in. This will be the first time I've ever lived alone. The majority of the people tell me that I'm going to like it, but I know that for the first few weeks I'm going to be lonely.

It's not like Frank and I spent every single minute together but it was comforting to know that he was nearby. It was the fact that I was alone but not. And now I won't have it. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for Frank. It's awesome for him, but it's still bittersweet. We've been roommies for 4 years. That's a long time. Change is a comin'.


So after some hard deliberation, I gave away Shinhwa. I didn't really want to but it seemed like I had no choice unless I wanted him to go through more mental and physical damage. The amount of strays have been increasing at out apartment and Haru has grown increasingly defensive. He can't help it. It's his personality to be such an alpha can and he was taking it out on Shinhwa. It got to the point where Shinhwa was too scared to leave my room and flinched when he saw Haru. Yes, Haru can be an ass but he's only doing what instinct tells him. So to protect Shinhwa and make sure he doesn't get hurt any further I gave him to Jasmin and the girls. We'll see how that arrangement goes but I hope he will be happier and more at ease. It's not fair for him to stay with me to be holed up in my room. I'm really gonna miss him though.
Life plods along.... XD


So I caught a cold. ::sigh:: I was doing so well but when I start hanging out with a string of sick people, it was bound to happen I guess. I had a killer sinus headache earlier in the day so I caved and bought some medicine. I love psuedophedrine. It sucked my sinuses dry and the headache went away. I feel much better.

Half the month is over and I have done so much already and I still have a whole lot more to look forward to. It really is exciting. I know I keep "complaining" about how much I have to do, but in all seriousness, I'm really looking forward to it. It's not like work where it's a pain in the ass. So.... just need to rest, keep healthy and sleep. =)


I hate the cold. Thus my first post for this year begins XD

Maybe I should post more............

The year coming to a close

I am done with this year. So much has happened, especially the last half of it that I'm just kinda done with 2008. Good and bad things have happened. As I reflect back and become hopeful for the new year, I hope that things aren't going to be as hectic. I don't see that happening though since I've been planning for certain events already XD

I feel like I have changed, for the better hopefully, and I hope to continue in that direction. I know I have changed from who I was last year and I think I like this new me. Friends around me have also changed and are beginning to spread out, but that's life unfortunately. Changes in relationships and lifestyle and self.

One thing that hasn't changed... my thoughts remain disconnected when I try to write them down. LoL

Putting deep thoughts aside:

I'm going on vacation this week! Whoo!!! And our company Christmas gift is a day at the spa. I want to go on a tangent and say that I'm not a big fan of the spa. I don't really like massages and I don't like pedicures. Not to mention that I just found out that there is a services to blow dry your hair. What the hell? Whatever. I wanted a haircut but that wasn't being offered in any of the packages. The ladies at work were all excited about going to the spa and getting massages and being pampered. Well, that's not how I like being pampered. Just give me a $200 gift card. At least I can do something I really enjoy with it.

Anyway, I'm off to my parents for Christmas and I'm visiting Dawn!! YAY!! I can't wait to see her. It's been years and I really, really, miss her. Then back to Tampa for New Year's. Whoo, for fun vacation plans. Now I just need to do my laundry...


I love food.

Frank and I went to 2 cultural fests and it was a lot of fun. We went to a Greek Festival that a church/school holds every year and had delicious gyros. There was this one dessert that looked so tasty but I resisted since the next place we went was this huge Hispanic festival. We discovered that when we were leaving the apartment because it was being help at Al Lopez Park. I love living near a park. Delicious empanadas and Italian ice there. There was also this group drumming and it was amazing.

Basically, Frank and I had a food fest on a small budget which makes it all the better.

I also donated blood, which I hadn't done in a long time. It feels good to know that I am able to help someone somewhere.


Halloween Horror Nights weekend was amazingly fun. Renting the house was a fabulous idea and having close friends to get drunk with was faboo. Events like these truly make me realize how blessed I am to be surrounded by an amazing group of people. I loved it!
