We Meet Again.

September 20, 2011

Hello, again. We haven’t talked in awhile – 31 months to be exact. Well, that’s not true. I’ve updated my tumblr (ROBIN√úMBLR) a bit in the last 2.5 years, but we all know that’s mostly reblogging. I stopped updated this because frankly, after so long, I really didn’t have much to say anymore. Everyone has a blog now, and everyone’s saying the same thing, reposting the same links. Or they’re talking about their kids. Which isn’t a dig – I just don’t really read family blogs unless its a friend’s family blog. Thus, I actually care about their lives & the growth of their kids. Otherwise, I don’t have kids; it’s just not relevant to me.

But, I suppose now I have something to talk about, more original things to post (sometimes). Because I’m moving! After years of talking about leaving Arizona, I’m finally doing it, and it feels pretty strange.

Everyone’s asked if I’m excited. Yes, definitely. But I’m very reserved at the same time. You can’t just jump at these things without major hiccups (or spending TONS of money), so I’ve had to plan. Of course, I’m a planner anyway, so it’s been all sorts of exciting in that way, too! Thank goodness for Remember the Milk for helping me keep my To-Do’s in line, even if I’ve postponed nearly every task in the last week. (That’s gonna bite me in the ass tomorrow. I work well under pressure, though, I swear!)

My destination is San Antonio, TX, which is not a place I ever expected to be. It wasn’t even on my radar. But as it happens, I’ve been seeing a guy at a distance for about 2.5 years (since right around the time this ol’ website halted, imagine that) and that is where he lays his head. It’s a nice town, though. Not all that dissimilar from Phoenix, except they get a bit more varied weather. I hear it even rains more than twice a year; finally, my weather app serves a purpose higher than “bragging” about 110F heat. I’m also back in school, honing and solidifying some of my more geekier skills for a professional future.

It’s a lot of change, but I’ve always handled such things with a degree of control… since it’s on my terms. Heh. But, I will say this: I’ve never felt more adult than when shopping for independent health insurance.
