[disclaimer: This is long. Here, I will save you the trouble: tl;dr]
So I don't post anymore, it seems. It's kind of unfortunate, and it bothers me in that, thanks to LJ, I had a pretty complete reference of almost everything that's gone on in my life for the past 6.5 (!!! omg) years. I would hate for this year to be just a big blur.
That said: Not a whole lot has been going on! At all. Haha.
Well, I guess some stuff, maybe. Saturday Jeremy&Offspring and I went rock climbing, to make up for my missing it due to vacation. I was pretty proud of myself for getting 3/4 of the way up on my first go, but after that my complete lack of upper body/finger strength fucked me over and I never made it much beyond halfway. Climbing is all in your legs. But the time in between, when you're hanging there looking for a hand- or foothold that you can get to, is all upper body. And fingers. Oh, fingers; I thought I would never be able to make a fist again.
Friday J and I went to White's Ferry
to have lunch with Dr. Newman and his lab, and it was a lot of fun actually, and the food was surprisingly good as well, and I'm mostly recounting this because I'd like to go back there and go canoing, although I'll probably drown in the process.
I move in maybe a month. Less than that, even. I am trying not to think about it too much because I am going to end up missing my dog and my grandparents like whoa, and when I think about that I wonder what the fuck I was even thinking, why am I moving so far away from my dog? And my grandparents?
It sounds stupid when I write it out.
In a week and a half is my 5-year high school reunion, and I don't even understand how that is possible, or why I agreed to go, really.
In two and a half weeks J and I go to SIGGRAPH! Which we have already discussed.
Janek's daughter was born yesterday, and maybe now he will be so overcome with joy that he can stop pissing the rest of us off, and yes, I'm being deliberately vague--but hopefully, knowing Janek, my future self will be able to figure it out.
Otakon is this weekend and it's the first year since 2001 that I won't have gone. I'm sort of sad about it, but at the very least this means I won't have the flu next week.
Today I had a--well, I was going to call it an existential crisis, but given that it wasn't really existential, I guess it was just a crisis. And I felt like shit all day, and I am still waiting and waiting for Jeremy to get sick of all of this. I've been Sullen Girlfriend way too often lately.
I think, at the root of everything, my problem is that I'm really just scared.
Ahhh, I didn't mean for it to end all sad and mopey. Here, here, take this instead: ( A not-very-well-thought-out commentary on Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. OBVIOUSLY SPOILERY )
Yay yay yay. The best part of seeing it, though, was finding out that Jeremy has read all of them (except for HBP) and now I can geek out with him and OH LOVE YAY.
