So! It's been a while...  
12:15pm 22/10/2010
I have neglected my LJ... for that I'm sorry. I have been reading though, lurking in the shadows...

I wanted to let everyone know I am helping raise monies for foresthouse  and her incredibly pricey eye surgery. Please check out all the awesome things in the auction!

I don't know why my twitter widget is no longer updating my LJ, that's rather irritating. BOOOOOOOO on you.

Lots of insanity going on. Got laid off from Forma, but got my old job back at the gym the same night. So once again I am grossly underemployed! Hooray! :-P Trying to stay positive, I'm going to meet with my recruiter sometime this week  to see how I'm doing and hopefully accelerate my entrance in the Air Force.  Yep. Six months on and I still want to go so, there's that. Russ is camping for Memorial Day and playing paintball, but I work, so I'm at home taking care of two dogs who now BOTH have diarreah for some reason.  My life is all boredom and shit right now, but it's ok. I have the intenets to keep me company, and good friends to make me laugh.

My newest article...  
10:02pm 22/02/2009
This month a new magazine launched in Reno called Reno Tahoe Tonight, an arts and culture showcase full of local talent, including myself.  The website saw some issues/delays a first, but now is up and functioning well. So her I am, pimping out not just the new magazine and website, but myself, and the hard work I put in to this piece. My piece is very personal- not a feature about a movie, or a bar, or team- it's a different opportunity for me to write more creatively and see where things can take me.

Please check it out, read, comment??

Reno Tahoe Tonight: How Burning Man Changed My Life

Well, I've done it.

It's now no longer an open secret, it's out there and anyone interested is free to start calling my sanity into question.

Last night I finally told my PARENTS I'm planning on joining the USAF (Air Force, woo!). Things effectively went as planned- very serious and disapproving lecturing from my father questioning the rational of my desire, but ultimately acknowledging that it is *my* decision as an adult.  My mom  was much more unexpected.  There was no flailing or arguing, just initially quiet denial, and as a I prodded her to talk with me about it (more worried about how she'll take it than anyone), we were able to have a discussion, and when I told her how eager I was for it at the end of our conversation about the possibilities and things I can and will be able to do with my life, she said "I guess I'm actually eager about it for you to- but I'm not going to be excited, I always worry." God, I love my mom.  I'm sure there will still be more to this- further arguments or such as things get more real- as I move through the process.  I shocked them a little, and my father did something oddly similar when I decided to move out back when I was 18... randomly started getting pissed and fighting with me about totally asinine and obscure shit the closer we got to my move date.  We shall see, but there we have it.  Just have to break the news to my beloved in-laws now, and it's pretty much OUT there...

today I weighed myself for the first time in days: 150.5... 5.5 lbs to go.

Writer's Block: Table for One  
03:30pm 03/02/2009
Do you ever go out to dinner (at a sit-down restaurant) by yourself?
Have from time to time- I'm not scared to do things alone, I just prefer to do them with others since talking to yourself is such a social faux pas.
