Making Changes

I forgot all about blogging this morning.  I was into my e-mail trying to sort through it all and label some of it to keep better track.  I started doing this a while ago and scrapped most of it.  I like the drag and drop feature.  My e-mail is so colourful.

On my to-do list today is to sit down and hammer out some details about my Practicum class.  Helen e-mailed me on Friday and I still have yet to e-mail back.  I’m trying to figure out the name of my class, how long I think it will be and a description.  This means I have to decide what critters are going to be featured in the class.  I’m thinking Zombies, Witches, Vampires…maybe Werewolves.  But they aren’t undead.  They’re immortal.  Tough call.  Witches aren’t technically undead either.

I need a new goal for my 101 in 1001…

I’m not joining the army.  I have made up my mind.  I don’t know what I was thinking about, honestly.  I think that the idea of losing my creativity frightens me.  No dollar amount is worth becoming a drone.  That’s not true.  If I had an annual salary of $1,000,000 I’m sure I could pay someone to be creative for me.

Now I have to figure out what I’m going to do with myself.  The goal is to still be in the city, hopefully by the spring.  The Welshman and Red want to be roomies.  Leh says the three of us are like peas in a pod, and I have a good feeling about this.  A switch, because I’ve always felt I wouldn’t like to live with roomies.  I’ve got a meeting with The Boss today to talk about all this stuff.

Pro’s to City Living:

  • Close to my friends (YAY!)  +5
  • Makes dating easier  +10
  • No shortage of activities  +8
  • Would actually be living IN a canton instead of an hour away +5
  • Buses  +2
  • Shopping  +1
  • Did I mention dating?  +10
  • Bigger opportunities for nerding out (like more D&D, SCA activities, hanging out at Chapters)  +10
  • Increased salary (Hopefully)  +10

Con’s to City Living:

  • Full of people  -2
  • Away from nature  -5
  • Cost of living  -7
  • Driving a standard just gets more stressful  -10
  • Work would be in The Market -8
  • Dating.  (Lesbians are crazy…)  -10
  • Shopping (Close proximity to gaming store/Chapters)  -5

I’m still fairly optimistic about city living even if the margin is only 14 points in favour of Pro City.

D and I chatted on the phone yesterday for a bit.  It’s funny, if someone had told me 2 years ago this is where I’d be and how my life was unfolding I would have laughed at them.  Never figured I’d be in this place.  Never thought I’d be able to handle it.  I misjudged myself.

Sexapalooza is on Saturday.  I am most excited and have a list of things I’d like to look into.  I had to turn down an invite to a Poker Night.  Next time.  I’m suddenly very busy.  I like this.

Tuesday I have to go back to the sleep specialist.  I’m not happy about that.  I hated the last visit, it stressed me out so much.  I’m thinking the visit on Tuesday should go much better.  I haven’t taken the pills he prescribed but I have discovered I can reset my sleep clock to something more normal and healthy.

Cortejo has a job interview today!  Sending her lots of good vibes.
