It looks like wonderful.

So it is SERIOUSLY time for an update. A lot has changed, and pretty much all for the better. Life is good, basically. I quit Steve. It had to happen. I missed my life. I missed my dog. I missed sleep and peace of mind. Steve really surprised me and was great about it even though I only gave him a day's notice. I now carry one phone and no longer live out of a suitcase and it is lovely.
I took a job in Portland, working as an administrative assistant for a financial firm that deals mostly with New Markets Tax Credits. It's super interesting, even though it sounds like torture. The people I work with are fantastic. The office is new and organized and runs like...a real office. No screaming. Just pleasant hellos. We are in Old Town Portland, right by the Burnside Bridge. There are a LOT of homeless but the buildings are beautiful and I just love being in the city. I am renting a studio in NE Portland, near the Hollywood District. Joseph and I are still settling in but the building is adorable and my apartment feels like it was made for me. There are hard wood floors and a sizable closet and adorable little built-ins. Once I have it looking the way I want it to there will be photos.
I was SO sad to leave my roomies and loves in Eugene. I miss them terribly. And I miss Jamesons. But, here I have Melissa and David- not to mention old friends keep popping up and it's so fun to catch up with people who knew me when I was wee.
So, that is my life right now. I live in NE Portland, work full time for a truly great organization and am just generally enjoying life right now. I'm poor, but hopefully things will even out once I get into a groove.

Also, it snowed!

And, it is a new year. I posted this last year and I just think it is so perfect. It is my wish for myself. Happy New Year, me!

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
Neil Gaiman

And one more thing- This has nothing to do with anything except it looks like wonderful.
