I think I did it. I think I got a new job. Not the career-track dream job I'd hoped for, but I think I'm getting out of the ol' taco shack! Anyway, some guy's supposed to call me to discuss when I can come in and train at the new place. Scared to get too excited b/c I'm half-afraid that...

Delayed response, but that's awesome - I find yoga can take all my stress away. I've started doing a half hour before my morning commute and teh whole morning seems so zenful after that.

Hope you're well.

LoL it is true about the local woman - unbelievably beautiful. I work downtown in Vancouver and I gotta say, it's EXTREMELY distracting ARRR!!! As for the local strip clubs, I don't exacatly frequent the joints, but every so often I'll find myself there and it's shocking, but no more so than was Rick's on Bourbon Street in N'awlin's.

You should of course come check it all out for yourself - I'd be happy to show you around wink Take care.

I suck. I never update this thing.
Problem is, I'm in the midst of a 28-day work streak without a single day off.
All I do is work. Work work work work work.

Then again, I did go to Costa Rica for a week in mid-September. It was strange to visit the exboyfriend in his home with his new, uh....girlfriend. I mean, seriously...

Hmm....
Thought I updated last night after coming home. I guess I dreamed it?

I haven't written here in a while. Instead I send longwinded emails to my (absent) boyfriend and family. Surely they're tired of it by now.

I've just about had it with the service industry. I'm at that point where I'll take pretty much any job so...

you got it on the money, corporate resaurant. I am really about to quit, I am looking for a new job now. I love waiting tables but I hate that place!!

It is now officially time to update your blog wink

Went to bar.
Drunk, as a result.
Feeling a bit resentful.
Alone in an unthinking and uncaring world and whatnot.
Poor fucking me.

that pretty much sums up my nights of drinking too.

I totally care - specially about post-nasal drip after surfing... oh there's been a few embarrasing moments with that biggrin I'll never quite understand how so much of the ocean can make it's home in one's sinuses... secretly I like it though... a post-surf reminder of an obviously rambunctious session wink

Whew.

Haven't updated in a while.

Moved to the beach, great little house with a fenced-in backyard, plenty of trees. (a rarity on wrightsville beach, i assure you) Reasonable rent.

Accepted a position as office manager at the yoga center. Woo-hoo. It looks good on a resume and is only 20 hrs per week. So I can still make money waiting tables.

Boyfriend went...

Had the most vivid dreams last night.
One of them involved suddenly realizing I was pregnant and subsequently giving birth. And being upset and dreading it but then falling in love with the baby and breastfeeding it and everything. And Erik was really happy and we were excited. But then I left it on the floor and forgot about it for a while and when...

yeah, i don't even know how to comment on that dream right now except to say be glad it was a dream. it's strange how we all think we know how we'll handle a huge life change when it comes around, and yet we're always blindsided when it does. i wonder how accurate dreams are in that sense...

I got locked inside my apartment last night.
Our doorknob/lock broke, and no matter what I did to the doorknob, I could not open the door. I was on my way to work. Luckily someone picked up my shift! Otherwise I would've felt terrible. I'm out a buncha bucks, though. That was a really good shift/section. And rent is due soon...

That new place sounds picture-esque. I guess you like yoga, can't say I'm a fan. Not since a Czech yoga instructor tried to split me in two while shouting "breathe! breathe! stretch! stretch!" while I'm trying to tell him I'm not as flexible as that blackeyed

Rainy day and yet I'm having an upswing on the mood roller coaster that is my life.

Joie de vive? Probably b/c my ass finally stopped aching enough to allow me to start working out. Damn snowboarding ineptitude. Went to the gym last two days in a row and am feeling confident about partaking in the 'yoga marathon,' as we at the local...

saw you on Zef's page and noticed your comment on trying to go vegan. i'm a vegetarian myself and feel like a horrible person for not going all the way. it's no excuse, but indiana is an awful place for alternative lifestyles like that and i hate spending tons of time studying and worrying about food. being veggie is easy. so what got you started? since it sounds like you've only recently given up meat...

good luck, by the way!
pastura:
well, good for you for trying. my conscience reminds me every day that i need to do more... no matter how much i think i'm already doing.

and all of my travel pics are actually from my college days - Spring 2003 semester abroad. Luxembourg was our home base and where we did our schooling. every weekend was spent somewhere else.

I've been lazy about writing in this thing.

Mostly I've been working.

Things are just sort of at an uncomfortable pause right now. I need to gather some momentum for the next steps.

You sound like me. I wish I had time for some quality pampering. frown
zef:
They were not quite as overdone with surfshops as a lot of beaches, but there are tons of houses and condos and hotels. I could imagine wanting to kill the locals and tourists alike. It has it's pretty locations, but most of those are undeveloped, thankfully. I would say that there is more of a night life in wilmington. the open hours of places there are too seasonal tourist dependant. I am glad I went though. The walk on the beach was quite nice.

A friend from ohio came to vist me this weekend, too. We drove to wilmington. He saw the beach, we walked a bit. He had his fill, so we didn't even stay for nightlife. I just took him home and fixed him a birthday dinner. I made veggie taquillos with wheat tortilla and homemade guacamole, homemade refried blackbeans, spanish rice, and salsa. I wish I had the time to make some salsa, that was just store bought, but it was good.

Anyway, so what's your next steps? Where are you headed -- is this about life, financially, ???

Woo-hoo!
I got out of town for six consecutive days!

The escape included a stop at my parents' house. Erik came along and spent quality time with my parents for the first time. He clogged the toilet. Nonetheless, my parents seem to really like him.

Next we journeyed on to Snowshoe, WV, where I proceeded to bruise my ass learning to snowboard. I was really...

That's a lovely story. smile

My baby sis clogged the toilet once and I was laughing so hard, I had to call my dad at work and tell him.

She said she should have known when it felt like it was coming out sideways. frown

I am in a better mood now. I am having massive mood swings resulting from recently introducing oral contraceptives to my fragile, hormone-sensitive system.

Yay.

I had great sex last night. My boyfriend probably isn't 'technically' as skilled as my last boyfriend (he IS 13 years younger than my ex and isn't a manwhore, so he lacks in the experience department). But our...

carmen:
haha you are correct sir...er...ma'am

so what do you do in this crappy-ass part of the state?
zef:
vegan, I am thinking the same thing. I have diet for a new america. I borrowed it from a friend a few years back never returned it. My friend, a yoga-fanatic, recommended a translation of the pantanjali sutra, unless you meant more on the actual physical side of yoga. And a book by some swami on "happiness" . I am more into the buddha-dharma, but yoga has some interesting insights, too.

Well, I think whatever turns us on turns us on. From the male perspective, hell yeah!!! but a man's always got to give what he gets or give to get, I like a lot of foreplay, myself. It's not necessary, all the time, but I always enjoy sex more when things take their time getting to the main event and then afterplay for the extra-pleasure is quite nice too. It aint over til we can't cum anymore, that's my ideal, but of course, couples don't always have time for all that...I think I got off track.

I hope the hormones balance out for you soon. I know it must suck to have something be out of your ability to really influence how you feel.

So far I am avoiding them, but I have soooo many realistic drawings to do before thursday I have no time for anything. I wouldn't trade it for the world right now. I am quite pleased with that aspect of my life.

Dude. Seriously.
I should really get started on the whole 'looking for a real job' thing.

Among other things.

I am soooo poor. I work my ass off, but life is freakin' expensive. I want to take this 5 day snowboarding trip but it's sketchy whether I can even afford it. Actually, it'd be no problem once I get my tax return, but...
