Ch Ch Ch Changes

by statia on June 2, 2004

On my way to the kennel yesterday to pick up G-Man, all sorts of shit went down. Well, not really went down, but it was “lets run into/ talk to people we haven’t seen in over a year, day.” A friend of mine called me yesterday. I hadn’t really talked to him in over a year. We had dinner plans and he just sort of never called me that day, so my basic attitude was pretty much fuck you at that point. I don’t tolerate shit like that well. Apparently, his phone bit it, and he had come across his palm pilot recently. I’d have given him shit for not emailing, but, I had changed work email addresses at around the same time, so chances are, if he had tried to email me (and I didn’t ask), it wouldn’t have gotten to me. I still gave him shit anyway, because that’s how I am. We caught up, and as I was walking in to get G-dog, I ran into an old coworker from years ago. I got to talk to her for a bit while we were waiting for our dogs.

It seems like this year has been a total whirlwind of changes for me. Most of them good. I got some peace today. I got some guidance. My gut instinct had sort of been the one to tell me that I should be out in California. Even before I had been there. I had a feeling of wanting to move for the last year or so now. My big thing of holding on was the fact that I have a good job here. I have the stability, and I get paid rather well for what I do. To just walk in and say, “hey, I have to give you my notice to follow my dream, and to be with the one I love“, was a little unsettling. I’m a planner. I like to have a plan. I like to know that things will fall into place. I was told today, that they will. I was told that it would be ok. That I will be ok, that we will be ok. Sure, I’m still scared. the uncertainty of whether or not I’ll find something on the quicker side is extremely unnerving to me. I feel better though. I’m resillient. I’ve always landed on my feet. I am very lucky to have someone who is my rock.

Two years ago, I was told that there would be something big in 2004. Of course I put it to the back of my head seeing as it was two years away. Here I am, two years later, and that memory came flooding back to me. 2004 has been an extremely good year for me.

Yeah, I think everything is going to be OK.

I know it is going to be more than ok, beautiful. It is going to be absolutely phenomenal. :D

sure, work can be especially hard to find on the west coast, but living out west beats the ever-loving craaaap out of the east.

plus being happy has a way of making anywhere cool.

“being happy has a way of making anywhere cool”

another ed, what a great sentiment! I’ll definitely remember that!

What the hell has this boy done to you??? Wait. Ick. I don’t wanna know. I can guess. Forget I said that. But, if the implication that you’re moving is true, how are you gonna stand it? I mean, c’mon! All that sunshine and warm weather? How will you manage?

ed June 2, 2004 at 6:25 pm

definitely move………..i did it and LOVE it…never going back to the east coast…’ll find a job soon enough – just lean on henry for a little while as you look for a job…;-)

I’m happy for you. Honest I am. But this sucks. I liked having you live near my family so I could see you. :(

*sniff* My little girl’s all grown up and saving China…

Yay, I’m so happy for you. Email me where you’ll be moving to exactly, and what kind of job you’re looking for. My Co. has 3 offices in CA.

So this chick I know (and helped move once) is looking to move again. She’s found the love of her life and he has the nerve to live on the left coast. Sure she’ll be closer (geographically) to me, but…

Holy shit. I’m gone for one damn week and the whole world flips on its axis. Wow. Can I find a better word to describe it? Nope. That’s all I can think of. Wow.
