Six months gone:

Again, I have been incredibly remiss with updating this blog.  I cannot really blame myself:  I was working three jobs and going to school during the spring semester.  However, I still desire to write.  I just need to find a paralegal job first and then settle in and not have to work 15 gazillion hours.

So, as a filler until I can work a bit more on my writing, a little bit about what the next few months will hold for your narrator monkey.

I have graduated my course, and I am now actively searching for a job.  It is not easy, but I am hopeful I shall be employed by Fall.

I only have two jobs now.  I have to be circumspect with my expenditures.  It is something I have had to work on anyway.  I tend to buy a lot of unneeded stuff, and I really need to simplify my life at this juncture, especially if I am going to be moving.  There will be time enough for collecting when I have my main job squared away.

I just came back from PaizoCon over the Memorial Day weekend.  I had an excellent time, and I met with several of my close friends and made a few others.  I also was given a superb tour by my battle buddy Amanda Belle Paterson, which gave me a close look at Seattle.  I have to say I was impressed.  The vacation gave me a chance to decompress and order my thoughts as I head into this next battle.

I have plans to travel to NYC in July, and Canada in August.  I am hoping whatever new job I get doesn't interfere with that.

Life is a wonderful thing.  Despite the setbacks and issues, I have had more joy in these past two years than in the previous decade combined.  It has not always been easy, but I think that I have really grown as a person.  I could never go back to the way things were.

Anyway, that's the update for now.  I will hopefully not take another six months to update this blog.
