Moving on...

Hey folks. I know I've been terribly absent from here for a long time. My apologies.

I've made it a point to start blogging again, and I'm moving away from LiveJournal and migrating to WordPress. (For those of you who know about my project "The Prose Project" that I've got going over there, this is why. I felt it was easier to keep my personal blog and my creative blog under one sign-in account on WordPress.)

I hope you all will continue to follow me over there. I hope to hear from you guys!

a bullet point update

wow -- so it's been a while. my computers are shit so i've borrowed a friend's -- well, my boyfriend's, but more on that later -- old computer. LJ is NOT one of his bookmarked favorites, so I keep forgetting it exists. :) out of sight, out of mind and all that. so since it's been a while, and i don't know what you all know anymore, i'll take you back to september and touch on all the major events in my life.

--got promoted to Part-time Staff at Columbia
--we moved to an awesome apartment
--went to california for BlizzCon '08; it was expensive, but awesome.
--Jason left for five months to work on a cruise ship.
--Jason and I broke up.
--Brad and I started dating; he's awesome.
--dressed as a cowboy for Halloween; "Why can't I quit you?!"
--My dad broke up with his girlfriend of 11 years.
--My dad started dating someone new; she seems cool.
--creditors are trying to take my money that i don't have.
--i gave the bar my letter of resignation... which they didn't accept. (how does one deal with that?)
--drove through hellacious weather to get to Ohio for christmas; 10 hours when it should have been 4 and a half. (I JUST got here, as a matter of fact. half-past midnight.)

How to Make a Marriage Last

So I was talking to my roommate Teri last night, and we realized that we'd been best friends for around 12 years.

Tim: "Teri, we've been friends longer than most marriages last.
Teri: "It's true. We should write a book on marriage counseling. We've got good communication. A shared commitment -- in paying rent. And we have a healthy sex life with other people."

So after a lot of laughing, it got me thinking. Maybe what is needed for a successful marriage is simply: good communication, separate bank accounts (and none of that "what's his is mine" bullshit), and disclosed affairs to keep things exciting.

I guess I'm Neville's main squeeze... (But the description is really accurate.)

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Longbottom

Your perfect HP man is Neville Longbottom.

You like the nice guy. You don't need the best looking guy, or the most talented, or the most popular, or the most powerful. You want a guy who'll be there when you need him, who knows how to stick through the hard times, who isn't afraid to do what needs to be done, and who stands up to even his friends when necessary. You can't go wrong with a guy like this.

managed to snag a ticket to BlizzCon before they completely sold out FIFTEEN MINUTES LATER...


so in october, i'll be in cali for NerdFest! WHEEE! (and i'll get to spend a day with J&C -- but if J would have HIS way, i'd take three weeks off work and stay there. Sorry bud, I just can't do it. I wish I could)

(p.s. i've heard that they're opening up 3,000 more tickets sometime soon. Keep an eye on the WoW website for details!)

Your result for The Attachment Style Test...

The Waffler

45% Anxiety Over Abandonment and 40% Avoidance Of Intimacy

You're not the most decisive person. You tend to be unsure what you want out of your attachments, and it's unlikely you've had more than mediocre relationships. Either that, or you've had some good relationships, and some bad relationships, and you're just between them at the moment. The point is that you don't know what you want. You vacillate between trust and mistrust, and between low and high self-esteem. You probably have a couple of good friends who support you and believe in you, but you tend not to let things get too heavy. You like to sit on fences.

Fictional character with whom you might identify: Xander (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Amelie (Amelie)
