So it looks like I'm getting back on here. Why? Well, part of it is that I've been bottling a lot of things up since Dad died last year and that, coupled with whatever disapointment has cast me low any particular week, has led me to a mindset similar to when I was at my lowest points in college. So, I'll be venting frustrations here, and hopefully talking about the good things as well.

I've also had a handful of friends trying to encourage me to get back to my writing, so I've come back here to collect my old chapters (which is good since most of the computers that I've saved them on have died). I can't promise that I'll finish, or that if I do my finished product will be anything like what I originally envisioned almost 15 years ago when the idea struck in my head while I was walking between the Library and Kirk building but I want to be able to say that I finished the tale.

A rather important life lesson:

Getting closure doesn't always mean you get to feel happy. But it does mean you get a chance to feel better.

So yeah. I'm turtling for a little while. I just give up fighting it anymore...

And surprisingly this has nothing to do with my impending birthday.

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.”

-Neil Gaiman

So.. I was gonna write about a lot of things. Still will in fact. The last 2 weeks or so I've been on Cloud 9 and have yet to come down.

I'm dating the most amazing girl in the world and I get to see her this weekend. I could say a lot of things... but my current mood is best reflected by the statement I just got to tell my friend Todd.

"I just got my girlfriend addicted to 'Fables'."

So... I'm 30... Yay? [Dec. 20th, 2010|02:13 am]

Ok, so it was yesterday, but I spent the majority of the day offline. I went to a party and didn't think it would be polite to bring my computer along for the ride. Turns out that once the initial exodus took place, I would have fit right in if I had powered up and logged on... but anyway.

So I turned 30 this weekend. Specifically yesterday. One of my brothers graduated from his Masters program, so most of my family was going to go do that, and it was a little on the high side to go down there, and he's coming home for Christmas anyway. So I decided to do my own thing for my birthday.

After some drama with getting the family dog to the vet to be kenneled for the weekend, I went home on Thursday night, packed and went to bed. Went to work, and then immediately left from work for Columbia. I made decent time, took a quick shower, and went off to birthday celebration 1 with the friends who couldn't do stuff Sunday night. So after a few setbacks, we finally found a place to eat and went back to Dan and Dan's to play boardgames. Arkham Horror until 3 or 4 am, anyone? Oh and I brought down Apple Pie and they sampled it and a good time was had by all.

I got a few hours of sleep and then talked comics and waxed philosophical with my friends until i left for St. Louis and the December Birthdays Party. Which... Was.... AWESOME! And I didn't even get to ply Shots D&D like I had intended (I was to be in the midnight crew, and he ( the gm and party host) ended up running it only once), but that was fine by me by the time it happened.

There was much that happened in the ensuing 24 hrs, most of it dealing with me being subjected to headgames that I definitely don't understand. I stayed up until 7.... caught a little sleep, and then played boardgames until late in the afternoon. Hopped on the road after my goodbyes, came back up to Columbia, grabbed dinner with friends. Received a gaggift. and then came back to their apartment.. and they're playing video games. I was, but I'm physically and mentally exhausted... So I'm very content to watch. And a lot of that has to do with a phone call I got a little while ago which caused two opposing reactions to it's conclusion...

I realized this is jumbled and likely gobbledy gook, but I've had 8-10 hrs sleep in the last 72 hrs. And I have a feeling I might want to have my memories jotted down while they are fresh.

So... tomorrow I try to do Christmas shopping, drive home, and maybe catch Tron on the IMAX in KC.
