A Few Updates

I'm still at the same job. I still love it some days and hate it others. That's not gonna change any time soon, as it's just one of those jobs. Not great enough to love, but comfy enough to make you not wanna leave.

I'm dating someone. Have been since the summer. A man that makes me want to be a better person and strive for more. A man who is so unbelievably intelligent and caring that every day I'm in shock that he has chosen me. He can make me laugh, and learn and love. I trust him. I respect him. It could blow up in my face tomorrow, and yet it would still all be worth it. Did I mention we're going as Batman (him) and Robin (me) for Halloween? Yeah, we're THAT cute.

I voted conservative in the election. That does not make me a bad person, a capitalist, uneducated or a right winger. I still consider myself liberal in standpoint and am proud. I did not choose a party that I feel will give money to the wealth, or is the equivalent of the republican party for the states. I read the platforms, I educated myself and I voted for who I think can lead this country through tough times. Get over it.

This is a tough time economically...and yet it doesn't seem it as I'm still broke as hell. Seriously, with the recession I'm still struggling to pay off debt at the same rate, still blowing money at the same rate and still wondering when I'm gonna be able to start living life rather than paying for it.

I'm 95% certain that I'm going to just ground my car for the winter. 4 months of a parked car (it's not a winter car) means 4 months where I am less likely to get into a car accident, can pay off debt faster and not scrape my windows and curse that I don't have remote starter. It's not a bad idea...but then again it could change when snow starts to fly and I'm out at the bus stop.

I'm currently entering a time in my life where I feel transition coming. I feel an unease during the summer and realized that I wasn't content with my party girl lifestyle and have been slowly shifting. That's not to say I don't like to go out for a social bevvie or three with friends and that I'm never gonna trainwreck again. Cause we all know that's damn near impossible. I've been weeding out the people in my life that I find to be negative or have been dragging me down. I have been embracing positive and healthy friendships and relationships. It's a weight lifted off my shoulder.

Oh, and my cat is still playing in her damn litter. That's about it :)

So nice to hear you're still alive and kicking. Sounds like you are growing up - unfortunately it's inevitable but you are doing it right so don't worry about it. :)

Don't be such a stranger!

Angela said...

Good for you! It sounds like your in a good place.

Anonymous said...

Finally, you came back! This makes me happy.

Anonymous said...

I don't know what else to say beyond: I'm behind you 100% on all of this. Removing negativity from your life is hard but totally worth it.

Paula said...

Yay, you're still here! Was starting to wonder.

Happy you've found a nice guy - hope I'm next (not for you, I mean, but hope I find one too!!!)

Jamie said...

Don't leave us every again!

Nasca said...

Have found one of your posts searching google for the explanation of the word "rotflmfaf". I'm really glad to meet your blog, it's very interesting to read, but i still don't know what for "rotflmfaf" stand :).
Thank you in advance.
Hello from Moscow.

Roland Hulme said...

YAAAY! An update. I'm so pleased with your progressive attitude and I hope it all pans out.

Roland Hulme said...

Nasca: I believe it stands for Roll On The Floor Laughing My F*cking Ass Off.

Slyde said...

honey, you had promised me that you were going to keep our relationship a secret, you scamp you..

Mike from Adelaide said...

I thought you'd stopped.....

Thank goodness you haven't. Luckily you have a fine excuse in love....

Meghan said...

Thanks for the warm welcome back, everyone. I really do appreciate it fondly.

Tricia-thanks darlin :)

Angela- not too shabby.

Kelsey- Thanks. I love your blog and will do a linksie when not wallowing in laziness.

Cassette45- although stressful at first the end result is always better.

Paula- any guy would be lucky to be with you!

Jamie- you have no idea how much I've missed you, girl!

Nasca- thanks for the visit. Roland kindly explained the meaning.

Roland- Thanks :) And congrats once again. Your baby makes me (the anti baby) coo about babies :)

Slyde- LOL. You got me. Awww, shucks.

Mike- thank you. I think love makes everything a little brighter.

Rebekah said...

Welcome back! I'm glad things are going well for you - new man and cute costumes, woo!

And my cat plays in her litter too. What do you think they are trying to tell us?

Lad Litter said...

Good luck with the costume party. Dating usually equals a drop off in blogging. There, finally a topic for my Master's thesis.

Bruce said...

Sounds like you have finally started to turn the corner. The party girl lifestyle is alluring (think MTV and The Girls Next Door), but it holds false promise. Asking hard question and making hard decisions are what pay off in the end.

Kudo's if you can park the car for the winter....if you can ween yourself off of it, you will become a better person...I know I did.

Sarah K said...

Love you long time. One day our weirdly grown up lives will allow us to get together for one of those bevvies you mention. Maybe.

Meghan said...

Rebekah- that they need more toys, or that they're just gross.

Lad Litter- I'll help you research for that thesis!

Bruce-thanks for the words of encouragement. Going carless shall be hard, but better I agree.

Sarah- one day in Nov, we shall meet for these bevvies.
