this is where I am.

Some times it takes a lot of soul searching to figure out where you’re at.  And though I may not be able to pin-point it on a map, I feel like I have a halfway decent idea of where I am in life right now.

  • I enjoy my job; my budget is still going to be a little tight, and I’ll still have to do some finagling, but I don’t dread going to work every day.  And that’s awesome.
  • The band is going well; I love hanging out with my fellow nerds and making music.  My intonation is back to a place I can be proud of and so I’m not as afraid to play out more.  In fact, I’ve asked for a duet.  I’m not ready to just improv and solo away, but yeah, I’m ready to have a bit of something.
  • I’m adjusting to friends that have moved away, and are still moving away.  It sucks that I can’t just call/text/IM/twitter them and then go meet with them, but I refuse to let them go from my life.  I just need to invest in some stamps.
  • I’m wanting to be more creative; I’m sketching a little more, and will hopefully start writing more soon.

Basically, I could keep listing factors that are making things good and sort of define where I am right now… but the overall thing is overall I’m pretty happy, and decently confident. Things aren’t perfect, but I’m not letting that stop me.

With that being said.  I feel like I know where I stand (mostly).  And that I like where things are at (generally).  But it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t mind sharing that with someone else.

As I’ve previously mentioned, I don’t necessarily know where I stand with a couple guys that I’m interested in.  I know what page I’m on, but I’m not sure they’re on the same page I am.

(I also want to say thanks to all the friends who have gotten in touch with me and making sure I know how much I deserve.  It means a lot to me.)
