I honestly had forgotten about LiveJournal (like, it didn't occupy a space in my conscious mind at all) until I saw someone on Twitter talking about how they got crap for having a four-letter .com address, and that reminded me of all the crap I got from people who wanted to do LJ roleplaying as EDG from Gaming Guardians, and then I thought, "Hey, I haven't checked LJ in a while," and it turns out that I entirely forgot to do a year in review in December, and here it is mid-April, so you know, why the hell not?

It's weird that it's been longer since I defunked this journal than it was between when I started it and when I defunked it. It was such a huge part of my life that it feels like the duration of my active use should have been two or three times longer than my absence, but here we are.

Last year I started a business, called Delight Specialist. It's where I put most of my creative effort these days, and I encourage you to go check it out.

Lots of stuff happened late last year that I don't really want to get into in a public forum, but suffice it to say that I'm still dealing with the fallout, that I'm not happy with any of it, and that as a result I might be packing up entirely and leaving Indiana behind. It's a hard decision (made harder by the fact that I have no money) but I think it's the right one. Nothing left for me here now except memories, which I can take anywhere I want.

I've made it a goal to spend at least 50% of my time traveling. I haven't even left the state since January 2, and I haven't been outside Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Delaware since 2007. That's kind of sad considering the kind of wanderlust I have, and I think it's time that that changes. I might be buying an RV if I can put the money together, in which case, strictly speaking, 100% of my time would be spent traveling. I like that idea a lot.

I think that's about it for right now - a general idea of what I've been up to.

Tell me about yourself! How have you been? What have you been doing? Is there anything amazing that I should know about? Comments are screened, so go nuts.

Day care

I now know three things.

  1. If the day care accepts Alex without a current shot record, they will lose their license from the State of Maryland.

  2. The director is the only person who can get into the files of previous students.

  3. The director is on vacation until Monday.

...at least I don't have to pay for day care this week.

First day back.

I do not have Alex's shot record, so instead of Alex being happily at day care, Alex is in my office with me. I expect the peace and quiet to last about as long as the DVD, which is to say about another half an hour. Fortunately, I can take most of my work home.

Because of an expense that I'd forgotten about (the $160 car fix) and my father not paying me back for some things yet, I'm making my checkbook ledger out in red ink at the moment. Fortunately, my bank account can support it; the ledger reflects a substantial check that I haven't sent yet, and which has no due date, so I can hold off on sending it until I balance things out. God willing and the creek don't rise, I'll be back in the black in less than a week. Still, I'd really like to, for once in my adult life, not be balanced on the edge of a paycheck.

I suspect that many of my troubles - not the two I just mentioned, naturally - stem from parts of me still thinking I'm 16 years old.

Ah, it seems I misjudged the length of the DVD. I have an hour left.

This is the way the vacation ends
This is the way the vacation ends
This is the way the vacation ends
Not with a bang, but with accidentally knocking half a glass of Sprite all over my GURPS 4e core rules and financial aid paperwork.

Good night.
