Nearly a year after that last entry there, I've returned to haunt livejournal again. A lot has changed, and by a lot...I mean a lot. All sorts of it is stuff I never would have thought would happen...life's so radically different.
Not all in a good way, but not in a terrible way either.
Let's see. It's January of '08 now...This is what should be my last Senior year of high school. If all goes well, I'll graduate, and we'll all have a happy celebratory time. School's all online this year...I'm wishy-washy on whether or not I'm happy with it. The course material is interactive, that much I do like...but I still have to read a great deal of boring stuff. I don't have to deal with all the drama of face-to-face high school, which is a huge plus.
I'm not living with my parents anymore...I moved in with my best friend and her mom. That by itself was...an ordeal. But not long after I moved in with her, we moved out of the apartment and into a duplex by one of the schools up here. It's a nice enough place. Quiet neighborhood...close to a few grocery stores, and there's a pretty good teriyaki place just down the street. That I'm happy about.
Now I need to learn how to drive. It really is rather important...along with getting a job, and my identification. It wouldn't be good to be asked to show ID and not have any. -___-;
I mean really. How can one get carded if there's no ID to show them? That completely defeats the purpose, don't you think?
I've moved more this year than I really ever want to move again. I mean, all in one swift period. I don't mind the idea of moving again, but I don't want to throw things in boxes, get semi-unpacked, and then pack everything up again to move into a new place. I still haven't finished unpacking, and it's been months. The room's so full of clutter, I have no idea where to begin.
It's feeling a lot more like home now, which is good. I didn't really feel any of the home sickness I thought I would when I moved out. The first night...I cried. I really, really cried. But that was before I'd even started moving my stuff out. And that was the reason I did move out. Things are better between my family and I now, and I'm getting closer to having everything moved out of my old room. Pretty soon K will have the garage all to herself, for which I'm glad. It's a nice room, but I don't begrudge her having to deal with my parents.
My sister got a cat...she named it Cid Viscious...I don't know why she insists on spelling it like a retard, but it's her choice, I guess. She's pretty upset with how mom and dad are cracking down on her now that I've left, but it was really to be expected. That's how they were to me when I was there, and although I feel bad for leaving her to deal with them, I couldn't take it any more. On a plus side, she's moved into a bigger room...
It really seems like ever since I moved out, they've taken the time to make the house look nice again. They've refloored the entire house, repainted, and been attempting to keep up on the yard. They bought a carport and a shed...as well as two motorcycles. It's like...not having to provide for me has really made their lives easier.
Which is depressing to consider, but I'm glad that things are looking up for them.
I've got a boyfriend now...he's a sweet guy. An egotistical jerk at times, yes...but that's really part of his charm. He's smart, funny, and kind, though he does take things to heart that aren't meant that way. He lives over in Ohio, which is a ways away, I'll grant you that. But things are working out just fine for us so far, and we've made plans already, so there's nothing to worry about.
He's talking about coming out here this spring, which would make me so happy. I could introduce him to the familly...let him get to know everyone...
I'm on anti-depressants...they're...kinda helping? They gave me the wrong dosage this last time...bastards. My head's been swimmy for a good week and a half...but I can't take any more than one a day, or I won't have enough to last me...it really sucks.
Now that the first semester of school's winding down, and things are getting to a normal pace, I can put together a resume and start looking for a steady source of income. Once the room's cleaned up, I can get to my nicer clothing, and find the shoes I want. I really do like this place...
Aaaand...I'm considering running a music rotation. This isn't for sure, I'm just toying with the idea...and even if I did run a rotation, I doubt it would be more than 3 songs a week...and I probably wouldn't update often...but it could be enjoyable. Hehe.
Anyway. Now that I've pretty much covered the major points in my life of change, I think I'mma go finish watching Disgaea and go to sleep. I'm making it a goal to post in this more often now that I'm no longer on Gaia...I need somewhere to let my mind out to wander. xD
