LiffNotes, September 2013
This year had some rough parts for me. At work, we had a lot of changes and upheaval, and everything’s settled now, but it wasn’t for awhile. There also were some newsroom projects that took a lot of energy and resources, and enough of them in a row that it was hard to catch my breath. It’s been better for awhile now, and I’m grateful.
Add to that my family drama from April. It’s childish, but I’m still boycotting TC. I just can’t … deal with it, on top of everything else, you know?
And I lost my fitness groove. About once a year, I usually get lazy for a couple of weeks and get a little rounder, but it’s been … bad. I changed gyms and am working on getting back into things. I don’t know what happened. It’s like amid everything, I lost my grip on the one thing that brings me the most inner peace.
Relationship is wonderful. We do things! We hike! We get outside! We cook. It’s just this little world away from work and life where we just have fun and chill, and adventure, and inside jokes and just … love.
My LB moved away, to the city. Don’t tell her, but I miss her. In contrast though, Julie and Chris moved closer to me, just down Highway 9, so that helps.
I’m doing OK. I want to move further south, but I still love my apartment, and it feels oh-so-good to see my student loan amount go down, paycheck by paycheck. I read books and I eat vegetables and I write stories, and everything is … fine.
I “Swim Good,” you could say.
(P.S. RIP Lionel.)
