I keep forgetting to write about my life! |
I still work at Lush. It still sucks. It's much better than it was during the holidays, but I'd still rather NOT be selling stuff for a living. Even if it's stuff I like to use. Whatever. The good news is I got offered a job with the Census. The bad news is it's temporary. Even so, getting paid like $18/hour to walk around my neighborhood and ask people who lives in their house sounds pretty sweet to me. That starts later this month and goes for about 8 weeks.
Every time I look for a real job, everything I'm remotely qualified for requires ownership of a car. I really did not anticipate that in Chicago. It blows. I'll keep looking. But I'm getting worried about the amount of time I've been out of my field...
I'm totally butt crazy in love with J! It's ridiculous. I can't believe he's been in my life for years, and now suddenly this connection sparked. But it rules. Everything just fits, and it's easy. I feel sane and balanced and fulfilled. I had forgotten what that's like. Plus he works in a vegan ice cream factory, which is reason enough to date almost anyone.
Also still doing the kissing-friends thing with Charlie. That guy is cute. Ryan and I are on friendly terms, but I haven't seen him much. It's weird to think how sucked into that relationship I had become...with some distance from it, I realize he was totally right. It wasn't working, and it wasn't going to work. I hope we can do the real friends thing with time.
Jimmy is one of my best friends. It feels great. I was so terrified to break up and lose him, but things are way better between us right now than they were for some parts of the dating relationship. We're really close, and I have no idea what I'd do without him. Also, he's J's other girlfriend's other boyfriend. Which is hilarious and awesome! Being each other's confidants is definitely part of what makes it all work.
I'm bogged down with derby work all the time. I've taken on quite a lot right now, all of which I love, but I get stressed about how I never have time to do as great a job as I'd like. It's all worth it though. I've jammer reffed two bouts now. I'm still not awesome at it, but apparently I'm proficient enough. I look forward to getting better. But inside pack reffing is still my one true love. I miss it when I'm not doing it, and I feel at home whenever I am. I doubt that will ever change.
Don Juan went home today! No more foster cat. I was so ready for him to go. I'm going to do a massive room cleaning this week, and get rid of all the pee once and for all. He was so cute when he was cuddly, but I was at the end of my rope with his sleeping on my face and neck, and biting me and my various make out companions with no warning. I'm really happy for Tonya that she was able to find a decent job and move out of her friend's apartment to her own place within 6 months. Makes me feel like I should try a lot harder to get a job I actually want to do. But I'd rather spend all my free time kissing.
There's a Vegan Cupcake Bake Off coming up! I'm thinking pomegranate ginger this time...possibly with some lime involved somewhere. Also I want a tattoo of a lime slice! Maybe with Census money I can do that this summer. Not sure where on my body yet...so far I'm thinking either the ball of my left shoulder, or a pair of them on the front of my hips. I love my dino & cupcake tattoo, but I do wish I saw it more. So the lime has to be not on my back. Suggestions for placement welcome!
