Went on a date and it was a success. We hit it off really well, and both of us are looking forward to the next one.
Decided it was time to check in here as I have finally started the hobby I have wanted to get into for a while. Just got a Nikon camera and lenses, and have started learning how to use it. Have a blog set up to put my photos up on along with thoughts/commentary regarding them.
Ever meet someone that you just click with right off and completely blows you away? Someone that leaves you wondering how you could get so lucky, but at the same time why it took so long? This happened to me recently and I am still reeling. We have not been talking long, but so far she likes a lot of the same things that I do, and has similar views on certain subjects, like religion and such. I want to spend a lot of time with her to get to know her better, but at the same time want to take it slow and build a solid friendship first. This is a new experience for me and I want to savor every minute of it, and hope it lasts for the rest of my time on this planet (unless there is room on the rocketship for her too).
Went out to dinner with a bunch of people from work at my usual Friday night place. Even though I know a good number of them, I still always feel like I am out of place, as I don’t really get into a lot of mainstream stuff, and am also the largest person there, which is something that can cause someone to be on the outside. Had a good time but still deal with feeling like an outsider. Guess that’s what comes from not really being into all of the same stuff as most people…
Still miss Snowball, which I had to say goodbye to two years ago today. I hope he is living it up in cat Valhalla!!!
Ever wish that you could trade yours in for another one???
Ever had one of those moments of clarity when you discover something new about yourself? I was watching Elementary today and started thinking about why I like the shows I do. It dawned on me that most of them I watch because most of the characters in them are highly intelligent or function on a different plane of reasoning. Some of them I relate to due to the fact that they don’t let the preconceptions or strictures of the general public guide the way that they think or act, and therefore experience a freedom that most people will never get the chance to enjoy. Taking this into account I understand more of why some people may not be able to handle my views on many subjects. I see so many people trying to emulate the popular norm instead of embracing their individuality, even if it does not align with what everyone else thinks they should do. No wonder we live in such an unhappy world where everyone is labeled negatively when they are being themselves, or just not adhering to the social norm.
PS Took a week off and was glad I did.
Well, I made it to 5 years at the same workplace. Unfortunately the week after sucked (workflow was crap and got less than I wanted to done) and had to sign a written warning as I nodded off for a sec during a meeting (get sleepy when bored or not doing anything actively). Hard to be fully awake when it is the last hour of your last day of work for the week and you are sitting in a meeting when the temperature is in the 60’s all night. Hoping that I still have a job when I get back as I really do not want to go looking for a new job. Oh well.
On the up side, I have started doing some serious work on learning C# and also HTML5/CSS. Am trying to be more productive with my ‘free’ time and all that.
Hopefully I have my job still and make it to my vacation I have put in for. We shall see…
I know, it’s been a while since my last rant. Things have been moving along and have gotten somewhat better as I have a new position at work and making more in the range of what I needed to. Can at least get ahead on credit cards again after the medical problems this year.
Have signed up on a ‘dating’ site and also a kink/fetish one. Hoping to possibly meet some people that share my tastes and such to hang with or even more. Who knows.
More to come later. Time to start getting ready for bed.
I need a vacation. Hope I can save up enough PTO to take one late summer/early fall.
