Catching Up

Hello LiveJournal people. It's been so long since I've posted that I really have no idea how to go about getting caught up. Here's a quick, direct attempt at it.

First off, and most importantly to me, I have a girlfriend. I'm officially and happily dating Beth Garvey. I'm completely blown away by her. Most of you here know this already, but I figured things like this aren't officially official until they are on LJ, so there ya go. Just be glad I avoided the Facebook profile change.

The idea of having a girlfriend was sort of creeping around in my brain for the past month or two, but I have been broken for so long that I was having a hard time telling if I was healthy enough to make that sort of commitment. A couple weeks back, Beth tricked the every loving hell out of me and emotionally knocked me on my ass. I've been told the story is cute, and I may share it here one day, but for now let me just say that it felt amazing. I stopped questioning if I was still broken. In fact, I felt so healthy that the question instantly changed from if I could commit to if I could afford not to. The idea of her not being my girlfriend seemed preposterous. I don't know what else to say about it right now other than that I am happy.

Other things going on in my life:

- Burning Flipside was a bit over a week ago. It was an absolutely amazing weekend in my life, and the weeks leading up to it were full of fun prep work. But I'm glad it's past - I need to refocus. There is a part of me that will always be a dirty hippie in a tent, and I like letting him out to play now and then, but I have things I want to /do/. Unfortunately, this may have been my only 2009 burn, because I think I'm going to pass on Burning Man until next year, and I suspect I have a conflict for Myschievia. Maybe I can find some other regional instead.
- I attended a funeral.
- I re-gained and lost some friends. I wish them the best, but doubt I'll see much of them in the future.
- I'm still unemployed, but I've been distracted by events the past few weeks, and simply not pushing as hard as I should. That's changing.

Anyway, that's the core of it. It's nice to see you again LJ. Hope you're doing well. :D
