Business as usual: part 2?

My room is clean, and I mean REALLY clean. Shortly after the last post my parents decided we should paint my room which meant pulling everything out and cleaning things in the process. It was a much needed task so I’m glad it got done. Now I just need to stay on point with straightening things up.

Being single again was kind of strange to get used to. I think one of the things I missed the most was just having someone I could randomly text during the day for no reason at all. Within the first couple weeks after the Ex broke up with me we had a dead lobster in the tank at work and other lobsters had eaten parts of him (yes, they do that). And my gut instinct was to send a smartass observation to the ex (which obviously I couldn’t). So it was the small things like that that I really missed.

Getting back to business as usual became easier and easier. But like I said in the last post, it obviously wasn’t the same as it was before the relationship. And that’s a good thing. The relationship itselt taught me alot about myself and how to deal with life in general. I got over a few insecurities and became more self confident. I learned what qualities I like in a girl and what I don’t want. And now that I’m dating another girl, its helping me put things in perspective (more on the other girl at another time).

I’ve been trying to get out more and more. There’s only so long I can sit around and be mopey before going crazy. I’ve gotten a new (new) second job, I’ve tried to go hang out with John or Lindsay and Patrick or Dflo when possible (which isn’t much), and I’ve just gone to browse bookstores for the heck of it. I went on another vacation, I’ve read more. I’ve just tried to do stuff that I’ve liked to do.

Life is hectic, but then again it always is. That’s one of the things we don’t realize until we’re adults. But I would rather be making my own way in life as an adult than being totally clueless about life like I was when I was a kid.

Business as Usual

So I went on vacation last weekend. to Iowa. AND IT WAS AWESOME! I’m not going to lie, there’s jack shit to do in Iowa especially in Cantril where my relatives live. I just needed a break. Not so much due to the break up, but I literally haven’t had a break from life since Fall of 2009.

Mostly We (my parents came too) just sat and hung out with my Aunt and Uncle. Saturday we did go see a few “sites.” There was a park I always used to go to when I was younger right outside the nursing home where both my Great Grandparents ended up. And on the way there we stopped for wine tasting and then drove through camp grounds/state park. The was a ginormous slide that didn’t seem as ginormous now that I’m almost 30 and but I got just as much of a thrill from it, and then I got motion sickness from going on the swing. Fun Times though.

Now I’m back to the real world and am realizing how much I need a change. I’ve gone on record many times saying that I do have good jobs for good companies, but I really want to cook in some capacity. So I think that’s my goal for the moment.

Share the joy
