I am now 22. I have unfortunately found myspace. I work, go to school, live with the boyfriend and find not-so-fulfilling adventures in Seattle. I am at Peace with the world. Life could always be worse.

That is all for now.

Everything right now is utterly chaotic. Things are good, things are bad, things are frustrating, things are tiresome, things are progressive: things are chaotic. I can see the big bang coming now. I can see things are going to strain and begin to grow, which way will they twist? what am I going to learn from this? Where else can I go?

In the last week I have seen my best friend (who apparently has shaved the sides of her head and pierced her nose), gone to see awesome trio raspuntina (thanks for the recommendation drana), gone to several parties, went for a soul walk with new friend from work and then went tanning with her, saw a burlesque show, stayed at home and watched this awesome series on dvd with my bf, dyed my hair and let it go curly, got lost at the uw, worked 40 hours, went to a big family event with colin, cleaned and decorated my house to make it utterly beautiful, was told by my drunk co-worker that he has thought of sleeping with me, had a huge birthday bash, had my very first drink - although all i did was take a sip, went shopping and then met the possible other love of my life but didnt flirt back with him because I am a. oblivious and b. in love with an already amazing man.

I believed I could, that I would find my way and get what I knew I needed to work on the most....it is just so nice to find that things have come to fruition, that I have come to be more like the woman I want to be....and that all I had to do was look inside me for my true desires, and to, more importantly, let others do the same, to peer insde to see who I truly am.

Yummy!

We took each other at 3 in the morning and then I went to work. I made insane money today, was given the greatest compliment, and was randomly called just to be told that I am loved. I sang, drove and slept - soundly until 6:31. Now I await my borfriend's special macaroni and cheese, cuddling (maybe even some groping) and a good movie. I will sleep again and relish the fact that I have a whole two days to spend with the one I love.

I have been, daretosay, socially active. There have been parties and social invites by coworkers. It's nothing big, but it is just nice to come out of my box, have some real fun, and feel like the possibilities to develop friendships are available to me......I like to think that I may be acting a little bit my age, being accepted as who I am, and finding myself a niche in this city, that has for what seems for an eternity, been making me feel as drab as its rain. This is nice feeling.

In other news, it is official, I am a Husky. I start school in January. I am super excited. * I am also going through classes for work. I have been promised a raise and a promotion by my boss. This should be coming up within the next few weeks. More money is awesome...especially doing a job, on a team that I really love being on. I am so happy that everything at work is working out. There really is serendipity to some things!* I miss my momma a lot, but she might be coming in Febuary. I can't wait to show her this town. I absolutely Seattle (although the people are a bit icy), and want to show her the place that I see as being my home for a loooong time. * I am still and very much in love with my boyfriend. We have been working on US. Things feel so much better!

I feel, although extremely tired (I cant stop sleeping in my spare time), that life is really good right now. Nothing is in extreme, everything is balanced, and you know what, I really like that. Equilibrium? Homeostasis? What a concept?

Colin and I celebrated our first year anniversary in La Conner, a quant artsy town in Northern Washington. There I was treated to feet and hand treatments, THEN an hour long deep tissue massage. We then went to our room, and jumped into the two person jacuzzi tub. We ate dilletante chocolate truffles, and sipped cold apple cider out of flutes. We had a terrific dinner and slept beautifully in the big comfy bed. We drove back, a nice car ride (both ways) and came home more relaxed than either of us have been in a long time....for me, years. It was quite the treat, and I am thankful that I have the type of boyfriend who would take the time to arrange such a thing within such a limited time frame (I had to work). The fact that he went to such lengths, even to call my work to arrange the day off, so it would be a true surprise, is something very special....


I love him very much.





Does it seem like I am trying to convince myself (how much I do)?

The move into this house has made me feel so incredibly alone. Somehow its symbolism has made a tear at my want for this life, this relationship and everything I am doing, and yet, I cannot imagine a more "ideal" life. This is exactly what I should and think I do want....yet, then maybe the problem is that I am too caught up in everything to think of an alternative to this lifestyle. All I know is that I love my new job, admire and wonder at my boyfriend and his seemingly undying love, like the house, the drive to work and downtown,and living in the one of the best towns ever, Seattle.... Maybe it is the lack of zest, and in saying that I feel that I have turned into the very forty year old that I self accuse Colin of being. There is no adventure or constant laughter in my life. No great stories to tell. No flowers brought home to me at random. No passion. I feel dead within my life and that this house is gonna be the outlet to it. I am going to obsess about every decorative detail, its cleansiliness and the yard. It will become my world, and I will be shallow within the confines of my limited outlet. I am scared of what could BECOME....

I shaved off my eyebrows last week...and Los Lonely Boys and their music need to be banned forever....and enough with the new Green Day songs: September has ended now can hearing that song end too? And why the fuck is it necessary to celebrate something if it is going to be done without any meaning....

oh my god, what is happening to me?!

I love my new job, and although things are in steady transition (new manager -yet again- and maybe some more new faces) I feel that it will all be for the best. I can't wait to be a lead, a master of my craft. The new manager promises she will make me as I ask. I am so frickin excited...plus, guess what? I am making friends...I think. As bizarre as that may be, I really think I might be learning those skills...ahhh.
Colin and I had a very long talk, and although things aren't perfect, we are still apt to work on them. If anything, we can talk with each other about anything. I know things will be better....We are in process of celebrating our year's anniversary - even if we are both in debate as to exactly when that date might be.

Today I paint. I am painting our office orange zest with a white trim and a toffee ceiling. Our bedroom is gonna be a deep coffee brown with alternating cream white. I am not sure if we are gonna paint our ceiling red/burgandy or not yet in that room. I think the linens will be red and eggplant in that room.

Next after that is painting our movie room, and the spare bedroom, and the bathrooms.....when that is done, I am gonna redo the entry way tile, the mantle downstairs, then the flooring in the kitchen and the master bath. those last things are not immediate things of concern, but would help alot with the feel of the house...

We also need to figure out how to furnish this place.....and I get to work on the gardens. I am so excited.

Being a homeowner is tiring...ha...and we havent even moved in yet. Hehe
