One Year Down

It's been nearly a year since I moved to my new apartment, and moving day is just a few weeks away. I've been doing a lot of reflecting lately, and I'm less than pleased with the last 11 months. I've made some stupid decisions, some mistakes that I wish I could undo, and for the most part my situation has remained unchanged. I have come to terms with a few more things that have been eating away at my happiness for most of my life though, and that feels like a pretty big accomplishment.

If I could go back and do anything differently though, I don't think I would. I mean, there are definitely things that I regret, but to undo any of those would put me in a different place than I am right now.. and I'm really digging my current situation. Beautiful girl that loves me almost as much as I love her – got it. Decent, albeit boring and sometimes ridiculous, job – got it. Possibility of moving to Australia or some other awesome place with the before mentioned girl (I don't really care where, as long as I'm not chased by pitchforks.. and it's with the girl) – got it. A blog where I can keep referring to Faith as the "beautiful girl" and no one can do anything about it – got it.

I may not be living an exciting life right now, but I've found my happiness.

Oh yeah, and sometimes I sing. And people seem to think that I don't suck.

One Year Ago

Where were you one year ago? How much has changed since then?

Looking back, I think I'm almost exactly in the same place as I was. An entire year has passed and I have virtually nothing to show for it. I've moved since then, but it's almost the same living situation as I had. I'm still in the same job, and (still) really don't want to be in the same job.  Personality-wise, I think I'm better off, still awkward and shy.. but less so.

I think that's the biggest change I can come up with – being able to deal with people slightly better.

I'm not sure if there's anything more frustrating than looking at your life and seeing that it's so stagnant. So, a few of the ideas that have been floating around in the back of my mind are being pushed way up to the front of the queue. The limiting factor here is going to be my annoyingly consistent tendency to procrastinate.

Oh, and I ate muscat flavored chocolate covered jellybean things.
