Don't Turn Around

Right. Briefest of updates about life in my world. So much going on, obviously, I've not been around much. Thats in part due to the major ice storm that hit the midwest. I lost power in my house for 14 days, joy oh rapture. Thank god Little Dragon [have Itold you guys about her yet? remind me to] got her family to take me in, so I spent about 6 days sleeping on a pallet in the floor of a loft with her, Shrugs and her little brother [Oh Goody] and then another week or so at her house, because she got power back a lot sooner than I did. It was a nightmare, no makeup no luxuries hardly anything for 2 weeks, I'm glad its all over. Either way, I'm glad to be back home.

Right. So, Little Dragon is a person I met through Rogue, she's fabulous and our parents went to high school together, how weird is that? She's a doll. And she's a mystic, like me. And she's a lot better than I am, she's got a ton of talent, tell you the truth its difficult keeping her out of my head, she's got such a strong hook to her energy people naturally let her in. A lot like Rogue.

Speaking of my darling girl, we're fighting, although we've called a bit of a cease fire for the sake of both our sanities. Its ugly, its been ugly, but we're working on it. It all comes down to whether or not a person is willing to sacrifice or risk sacrificing a friendship to keep that friend from hurting themselves in an irreparable way. I am . And so she's mad at me. But we'll make it. We love eachother too much not to. That's what Shrugs and Little Dragon say, anyhow.

Speaking of love, Beloved and I are still on speaking terms, I am coping with all of this pretty well, I think, although I am not particularly in the mood to date right now I have met some nice girls my age and its delightful to hang out with them and have some semblance of a life on my own. I am enjoying the freedom a bit. It took some adjusting but I've gotten there. And I've gotten to the point where I'll eat, for a while I wasnt wanting to eat, not because I was strving myself, I just didnt have the energy. But my appetite is back, and I think that heralds good newd for me.

On the school front, I'm back in the swing of things. I have a 3.8 GPA [for you brits, that's .2 away from perfect] and I made the deans list this last semester. I fully intend to do it again. I'm really proud of myself.

The Lump, its nothing, and I am having it microchipped to make sure it stays nothing, but all is clear and healthy on that front.

As far as health goes, I have picked up smoking a great deal, but I have no other bad habits, eh?

Oh! and, as a joke [remind me to let you in on the joke later] Me, Shrugs, Little Dragon, Skippy and Rogue are all going to their Loyalty Dance at their school together, I am Little Dragon's "date" I'll have to tell you all about it, we're laughing so hard about it we can't even see strait. But I picked out my dress and we're all wound up about what Rogue is calling "the greatest prank ever played" Its for the benefit of their basketball team, really. Apparently yours truly is a dog, and has all four of them on a string for me. We'll see....

Well, my loves, I am off to class, those of you that know it, you should email me, you know.

Oh, and thanks to the lot of you who sent me xmas cards. It meant a lot to me.

xxxxxxxx [and then some]

times are a changin

Hello. I know I've been gone since I came home from Kuwait, and I promise to tell you all abut it when I have a moment, but I've not got a moment to spare, there's one bit of info I have to drop by before I run off, the reason for my absence. Beloved left me. I'm okay. She's okay. We're still going to be friends, but after 5 years...well, it takes some getting used to being alone again. I am keeping the house, we've worked something out. And Shrugs is going to move in and be my new roommate, which will work a treat, because I adore him and I can *tolerate* his girlfriend, a little. :) I figure this is time for a change, and life is going to get better. It has to. On the flip side, I amexhausted. I forgot how tiring being single can be.

I love you all. I'll give you a more full update when I can.
