  • Moved! Again! Still in SF, and here's hoping I can stay settled for awhile, because I threw out some boxes. That marks the 14th time in eight years. Far too much. The room is still a mess, but Nimbus and I are getting settled in. It's really cute and relaxed here, and there's not much in the way of expectations between the flatmates. It's been restorative.
  • FoGCon was delightful! I made a lot of new acquaintances, had a lovely time with Mr. K. and his wife, and got my arm signed by Cathrynne Valente. Both panels I was on went very well, I got to wear the shiny red pants, and even got asked on a date. (It'll be Friday.) I was asked to come back and be on panels again next year, which is always a good feeling.
  • One of my friends had a really bad week last week. I did a lot of caretaking. It was kinda heavy, but it seems like things are more evened out for them now.
  • Haven't gotten anything new written, although a few poems are percolating. One about the apartment I lived in in France that should be good if I can get it out. I'm kicking around ways to revamp The Abbey if I take Kit out of it, we'll see how that goes.
  • I'm revamping what a personal practice needs to look like for me. I am a hard polytheist, and I need to own that at this point. Debating how church fits into that. It'll be an interesting direction meeting this week, for sure. I'm also going back through some of my Grailwood notes and materials. Kind of angry that it feels like I'm always in flux with this as with so many other things.
  • I'm turning thirty next week. Working out how I feel about that. I wish I'd created some more permanence by now, but I guess I'm basing the whole idea on what my parents were doing at thirty, and look how most of that turned out.
  • I'd really like a primary relationship in my life at this point. I'm a bit worn down by always being the secondary, even though I have lovely partners. I want someone to do those everyday things with. This might be helped by finding a partner with less of a commute and more of a compatible schedule, too.
  • Work's going pretty well, thankfully. We had one of our remote team members in town for the last 2 weeks, which was super fun.
  • I emailed Dad for his birthday, and he emailed back. Progress!
  • Been catching up on stupid adult things, a bit. I have a consult for surgery next month, so hopefully that ball can start rolling, and I'm working on financial planning and transferring my ID to California and all that jazz.
I think that's all the news here. How's by you?

As I gear up for travel (San Francisco! Sept. 6-9! Let's make plans!), a possible career change, a possible move, and a visit from the Poet, I feel the need to start writing more actively again. Things are afoot even if some of these changes don't pan out. September always feels like a new beginning, and I really am glad it's here this year. And once things have decided what will happen, I think I'll be glad to have recorded it. So, I'm going to shoot for at least once a week.

In the last since whenever, I have:
  • Moved happily into Watson & Watson Headquarters, home of Team Shiny.
  • Broken up with someone.
  • Given up a few schemes.
  • Made a new friend.
  • Done a bunch of tarot readings.
  • Looked for a new job, without success. 
  • Tombé amoureux d'un Poète russe.
  • Continued in my Pagan studies, landing the lead role in a play about Rhiannon.
  • Watched the first season of Downton Abbey.
  • Remained reasonably healthy.
How's by all y'all?

--I have a crush.
--I love my job. I'm really good at it, which helps.
--The coven I went to at Midsummer is becoming a real spiritual home and opening some interesting doors.
--I have been having really swinging moods. I am mostly okay, but the moods swing, and the music playlists shuffle rather dramatically.
--Playing WoW again.
--I love Nimbus so much! He makes things better.
--The weather is finally cool!

Haven't posted in a while, so here's the skinny.
 
 
--Moving back to NYC next week, staying with friends and then moving into my own place and bringing Nimbus down.
--Cadence and I are taking a break, sorta. 
--Working on the job situation.
--Working on finding UUs and pagans I mesh with in the city.
--Meeting up with Someone on the 4th, which should be interesting.
 
Off to the Quaker retreat for the weekend, see you all Tuesday! Have great weekends and stay safe.

  • Rabbit Rabbit!
  • Still not moved. Looking at an apartment in Northampton on Thursday, and hunting up jobs. Something will come through. It's got to.
  • I am under 150 pounds for the first time in probably two years! Yay healthy eating and consistent exercise.
  • I am pretty fully switched over to Ubuntu, which seems to be much less taxing for my laptop.
I think that's pretty much it. How's by you?

So, remember how I was hoping that things would be sorted two weeks ago? That didn't work out so well. We're still in limbo on all fronts. At this point we're trying to evaluate what solution is going to work, but we're stuck. Blech. Also, I slept absolutely horribly last night, and am very very tired.

A December-into-January update:
 
  • Moving plans have not  been finalized, but will hopefully be sorted by the end of this week. I will keep people posted with what I know when I know it. Ditto job situation.
  • Nimbus continues to grow and be adorable and loving and mischievous and fun. Right now, he's in the laundry basket!
  • I have acquired an inhaler to deal with chest tightness and breathing issues, so those should settle out soon.
  • I have rediscovered WoW and its addictiveness.
I have a set of goals for the season (Solstice through Equinox):
  1.  Move to Massachusetts.
  2.  Get a job in Massachusetts.
  3.  Submit a poem for publication somewhere.
  4.  Figure out what spiritual path I'm supposed to be following.
My overarching resolution this year is to be more mindful in everything I'm doing. I feel like 98% of my issues come from not being aware at the time of the impact of things I do (say, financially) or situations that I get myself into. I don't take the bigger picture into account, and I end up sick and broke and depressed. I can't necessarily fix or control all of these things, but by being aware I can be better prepared for anything that comes. Really, what I'm tired of is the "Surprise! You're screwed!" element that keeps popping up. Therefore, setting up extra precautions to deal with surprises.

Here's to a happy, healthy, and enriching 2011!

Resolution update!

Stop:
Deflecting responsibility--Ongoing, seem to be doing okay.
Spending more than $50/wk on food--Haven't been tracking as aggressively as I ought to, but again, seem to be doing okay.
Avoiding creative projects--big fail. Must do better!

Go:
Dragon food plan--Excellent! Feeling better, seem to be getting enough cals!
Use Mint effectively and pay bills on time--Working on this. Need to file more, get more done.
Go back into analysis--haven't really started looking at this yet
Blog daily--Sometimes it's worth it, sometimes it's crap. But it's here every damn day, so.
Name change--on my calendar to start in February
Start a new physical activity--just got on board with the exercises here

Poll: What would you like to hear more about? Leave it in the comments!
shadowbird: (Default)
Stuff. Yeah.
Sleeping meds = good.
Therapy is a good thing. Today I will write my treatment for CST. I was gonna go back outside, but I'm kinda sleepy and messy so I think I'll stay in and focus. Maybe I will go to the lounge. Things are going well, mostly. The world is a bit frantic, but I think I'm pretty ok with it.
