You and I met quietly, somberly that first night of January. I was glad you had finally arrived, but I was uncertain of what I should expect from you. I still am. This past month has been… I’m not sure what to make of it.
I’m still dealing with my parents’ divorce, which has recently picked up speed. They met for the first time in months with their respective aides – my mom with her legal representation, and my dad with his usual ignorance. Talks continue and I’m just glad custody isn’t an issue. I’ve been begging to be kept out of it, but I’m still bound to be affected by it all. I may delve into deeper “feels” later, but let’s just keep our catch-up session broad for now.
So I’m back to square one with the job-search – good, old, cursed square one. That opportunity with MAKE Magazine was an amazing offering – right goodly way to start off 2013. I was disappointed (to say the least) that it didn’t pan out for me, but I’m thankful – surprised even – that I got as far as I did. I would have been so good for that project, and it really is a shame it didn’t progress.
In the meantime, my friend picked me up as her Marketing Director in charge of Social Media and Recruitment Campaigns for her music school. It’s a start-up so it’s only a part-time gig for right now, but it could be a path towards something more solid. In the mean time, I at least have something of significance to put on my resume.
Also I’m working on my AutoDesk AutoCAD Certification at CSULB. One class in but I’m already ahead, 7-week class the professor said I would probably be able to finish in 6 at my rate. You know what? I do deserve to brag a bit. Which I will… in a separate post.
Well, 2013, that’s pretty much it for the major items. Other than that I’ve been re-connecting with old friends, making new ones, getting back into rock climbing, getting back into shape, “making” in my small space, salvaging old furniture I’ve picked up off the side of the road.
I’m back and forth between sleepless nights and bedridden days, between anxiety attacks and fits of confidence, between surrounding myself with friends and being a hermit. I suppose there is some semblance of balance there. I suppose that’s alright for now.
