my neighbors (or, i guess my parents' neighbors) - who have known me longer than a lot of my friends - just moved to florida, and it was sad. like, we've had them over for christmases and thanksgivings and family dinners, they've seen me and my sisters go through grade school and college, they saw me in my dress before my school's quasi-prom senior/junior party, we went pumpkin patching with them and their grandson, the husband came to speak at career day when i asked him to... we were pretty close. and now they're just gone. 

my husband started his first day of work today, and though i know we both dragged this whole student thing on way too long, it's still weird to have him enter the real world and leave me sitting here thinking, "well now what?" (after enjoying all of this alone time that the hermit in me craves, of course.)

i have committed to one too many things and am now overwhelmed by everything that i have to do. so of course i completely shut down and do nothing, while letting the responsibilities crowd into the back of my mind, slowly growing into bigger and bigger worries. 

the above were all supposed to be individual blog posts over the past few days, but of course i feel like i have no time to do anything but worry and then procrastinate to keep my mind off of worrying and then worry some more, and, well... you get the picture.

this post is here because i feel like a lot of things are changing around me. for once nothing directly involving me, but at the same time, everything is affecting me. between the bouts of nostalgia and worry, i realized that this moment in time deserved some - even if it is not a very detailed or well written - recognition.

    i actually like this could use some more detaill..but it was fast paced and interesting.

    lool now i sound like those spam bots.

    1. you do sound like a spam bot lool. and if you read this two days ago when it was posted then you would have known that zeyad started work, and i no longer feel guilty for not keeping you in the loop. here was your invitation to the loop, and you completely ignored it - didn't rsvp or anything - and then you show up to the party and get upset that there's no goody bag for you.

    1. oh. my. god. god totally answered your wish. i had so many spam comments today. and half of them weren't caught by the spam filter which means i have to go get rid of them. ugh.
