Today it was really windy. The only weather California has are the Santa Ana winds so they are really exciting! I was driving the Camry to work today and even that car was getting buffered around. Then I got here and a tree had fallen over in the courtyard. So cool! I do feel like a pussy though because while I love the cooler weather and winds I do feel like bundling up and eating soup. It's 75 now.

Do you ever wake up and think, seriously, what is the point all this? Ugh.

I have photos up from Rosie's visit to me on Flickr: http://flickr.com/search/?q=California&w=92885634%40N00

I also have some of San Francisco on there, but you'll have to look through my travel set if you want to see those.

I absolutely love that my place of work for some incomprehensible reason rewards us for 3-day-weekends by letting us leave early the day before.

Meaning, this week I got Monday off for the ALA Conference (which was Best Conference Ever), worked Tuesday and Wednesday, get off at 3 today instead of 7:30 and get off tomorrow.

So happy!

I've been so antisocial lately... Last week I watched the first season of heroes (23 40-minute episodes) in three days. And went to work. Yeah.

My friend asked if I want to be her new roommate. It's not terribly much more than I pay now (for like a real apartment!) and it's in a really good location, but I'm not sure. The idea of moving out next year has not changed, but it doesn't make me all that happy either. I really had this idea that I'd move and start a new support system and my life would revolve around making connections with people and shit... I've met people and have friends I really like. I have a support system, but I just really don't feel like I connect really with anyone. Here or back home. Not even family really. I don't really miss anyone or anything. I just feel melancholy sometimes and just kind of jealous of people who can drive to their family's house whenever they like.

And I'm BORED. Yes, I know I'm traveling and get to do fun things, but things seem fairly predictable. I think I need someone to bounce my life off of, but I actually feel like looking for that less and less.

So anyway, roomate thing. The girl's pretty cool. The apartment is actually the second floor of a house. It has a yard and a balcony and a cat. It's in an area where I could bike almost anywhere. But if I move there I need to tell her I plan on moving out in 9 months or so. It would give me a chance to buy a bed and stuff so when I move wherever I go next I won't have to buy all that, but I could also just avoid buying all that until I move if I stay put. I don't know... I should probably just live my "voluntary simplicity" thing and stay here.

I was thinking I'd like to move to a big city like Seattle or Portland after here, but now I"m thinking I'd like to move somewhere smaller, maybe even rural. I feel smothered here. I miss trees and forests and open spaces. I LOVE mountains, but there are much prettier mountains elsewhere. I want to be somewhere where moisture comes out of the sky every so often.

Okay and now an unrelated rant on fearCollapse )

I love that it tells me I *should* be interested in Rosemary Durda's sheep.
