Well folks, I’m hiding wherever I can!
The move has been official for a couple weeks now. I worked my last night at George Mason on October 22nd and moved the rest of my stuff down on October 23rd. I’ve spent the last couple weeks trying to get settled in. The transition has gone well for the most part. The room here is a little smaller than my old room, but I’m learning to cope. (Sorry if I seem distracted, I’m trying to catch up on 2 weeks worth of The Daily Show) My room is a disaster to say the least. I got all the boxes unpacked the first couple days I was here, but I’ve yet to organize everything that came out of said boxes. So there is junk ALL over the place. I have to get up at 7-7:30am every day to get my cousin ready for school and walk her to the bus stop. I often take a nap afterward and then the day is open, until 325pm, when I have to pick her back up from the bus stop. Not working is more draining than I could imagine. I’m getting some video game playing done, some reading done (all 6 Scott Pilgrim books this weekend), some cleaning, some working out, little homework. I haven’t found a productive routine yet. I’m working on it, but it’ll all be thrown off when I leave for Milwaukee next Thursday/Friday.
Besides the move, not much is going on. I went to The Rally to Restore Sanity on October 30th. It was chaotic to say the least, but it was a good time. I wish I could have NOT gone alone, but that seems to be the way my life is shaping up. That’s about all I’ve done.
As for my “mental status”, every day gets a little easier, I suppose. I think about the ex a little less, though I still torture myself with a quick pop into her fb page most days to see whatever new picture she has up of her and the man who came after (or during) me. Hopefully, this saga is nearly over. When I went up to northern VA last weekend, I was immediately shaken by thoughts of her, but I seem to do a lot better in my new home. The less time I spend up there, the better. Hopefully my 2 trips to Milwaukee over the next couple months will also help end this lingering pain. I’m tired of feeling it, I’m tired of talking about it and I’m sure you’re tired of reading about it.
Besides that, life is grand. I need to pick up the pace on school, but I’m confident I’ll still be alright finishing the rest of this semester. I’ve also begun the process of transferring credits over to the school I’ll be going to down here. Finances are holding, school is progressing, life is moving forward.
That’s all I’ve got for now, sorry I’m not more enthused, I’m tired, but didn’t want to leave another day or weeks worth of gap on my status.
