To be honest, it all kind of blurs.

I'm still with Holly. Alex is still living with us. He's struggling in school - not educationally but socially. We have a menagerie of dogs and cats now. We moved to a new house in June; drop me a line if you want the address for some reason.

Most of my online social time is spent on AIM/Gchat/MSN or on Twitter. I've moved my World of Warcraft blogging to Duct Tape and a Prayer. Over the summer, my site was the victim of a script injection by Russian hackers, and I had to nuke it to the ground. I've saved the archives of Lost in Translation, but I decided to start fresh rather than re-uploading everything. Sadly, I haven't actually gotten started yet. It's been months. Sometimes I wonder if I ever will.

In June my contract with Butler Hill ended. I picked up some subcontracting work doing web design and development, but it didn't pan out, and we parted ways at the end of August. My regular work with Johns Hopkins finally ended last Friday. Holly's taken over dealing with the financial side of things so that I can work out my life issues, which she's doing in large part with her copywriting business, Cottage Copy. She focuses on small businesses - 5 people or less - who sell handmade creations; think Etsy sellers. If that sounds like your cup of tea, head on over and check it out.

With the help of some friends, I've figured out that - at least for the next few years - what I really want to do is write, with software development as a secondary vocation and art and design as hobbies. I'm having a hard time getting going on that. I took a break from the Internet and online life last month, and got huge amounts done - but since I ended my self-imposed exile, I've gone back to zero productivity. Clearly I need a change.

I truly miss having in-person friends. Honestly, at this point I don't even really have more than a few online friends whom I see or really talk to - I can count on one hand the people I've had actual conversations with in the last week. There are plenty of people to chatter at on Twitter, but it's not the same thing.

I think that about sums it up. Comments are screened, and I won't unscreen without your permission, but I'll do my best to respond. Beyond that, I'm still reading LJ, even though I rarely comment; beyond that, I'll see you next year. Wish me luck.
