After looking back on the events of the past 3 years, I’m thinking that perhaps there was a reason I was to come back to where I began after all. I look at all the new friends I have made here that are within my “style circle”…..you know….those that embrace more than the norm, I look at where I am career-wise, and I’m near the family that is dear to me. I’m not starving to death, I’m not scraping by from check to check, and my credit is actually getting better. I’m gaining a healthy reputation in my workplace, and I’m well thought-of by my superiors and colleagues.
Yes, I may have a bit of a reputation growing just by those who ready my website and LJ, but it’s not affecting anything I do from day to day. There is that degree of separation there that keeps things healthy, so I’ve found that balance as well. We have a group that meets just about every week outside of the workplace, and we have a lot of fun, talk about what all we’ve done, where we’ve been, and things we’ve done – it’s quite a riot most of the time. Granted we don’t stay up late enough to greet the sun in the morning, but I think my better half appreciates that little fact.
Halloween is fast approaching, and I’m really nowhere near ready for it – dangit! Usually I’m well-prepared for such things, but a severe depletion of makeup supplies and adequate bits to throw together to MAKE a costume with might hinder my efforts some. Then again….have I ever really needed an excuse to go out and have fun? Nahhhhhhhh….never! I met yet another new friend over the weekend that I think is going to make a fun addition to our little group as well, so the circle expands just a little more. Yay! Thanks to the conversations of the weekend, I have my first new t-shirt idea that will be going up on my CafePress.com store soon, so please do watch for it.
Until next time………
