I’m both more and less frazzled than I was last week. More because Strong Draught and I have plunged headfirst into the rental market here and found it less abundant than we had first imagined. We both have quite stringent requirements for what our next apartment is to look like and as such, are finding most places somewhat lacking. However, we plunge on, mostly because we don’t have a choice.
I’m less frazzled because I had a chance to relax this weekend and enjoy someone’s company quite a bit. Love is definitely in the air these days, as we attended a friend’s wedding on Saturday and another friend announced his engagement on Friday. I’m also pretty pleased that I get to cross another item off my list this week and it’s one I honestly didn’t think I was going to be able to do.
There have been a lot of changes lately—some better than others—and it’s been interesting learning to roll with the punches. I feel like I took a few straight to the chin without rolling and am just now starting to come around and recover. It’s been a learning process, for certain, and I’m pretty satisfied with the current results. It would seem that I’m wrong about a few things and some of them I wanted to be wrong about. However, one of my friends is having a rough day and I hope that I'm right and he's wrong.
Book I’m currently reading: The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
Quote of the Day: “I came out here tonight to look for my friend/I don't know if I'll ever get to see him again/I don't know if I'll make it home tonight/But I know I can swim under the Tahitian moon/One last time under the Tahitian moon." Tahitian Moon, Porno for Pyros.
