Film at 11. An update.
« on: January 19, 2007, 04:47:32 PM »
I never really do these on here... but I guess I'll give everyone an update as to what and how I am doing.

So, I went to Austin... and after a few days of agonized thoughts running through my head... I decided to not move there.  I absolutely loved it... but it wasn't very me, so it looks like I'll be staying put until 2008.  As to what comes after that... I don't know.

It's rather strange to see one's area of the country through the lens of another... and I realized that the BosWash will very probably always feel more like home to me than anywhere else.  Which is weird, but I guess it comes from having a mother from Arlington and a father from DC... as well as spending a good portion of my life living around and visiting East Coast cities.  Hmm.

My best friend and her husband are moving to Richmond in a couple of months... and I'm quite looking forward to that... he wants to hook up with me and play music and stuff... so that should be fun.  It'll be a nice outlet. 

Now that I'm not moving, I can probably travel a bit more.  I've never been to Chicago or Atlanta... I'd like to check those places out... and I already have a couple people breathing down my neck to go to Montreal again. 

I also seem to have something of a boyfriend-but-we're-not-calling-it-that-because-that-would-jinx-it dating person in my life... and since I'm gonna be in Richmond for now... it looks like we can explore that relationship.  Interesting.

Speaking of relationships, it's always nice to find out exactly which of your friendships are based on cocaine and booze and which ones aren't.  I mean, when you help someone move... they owe you for life.  There are a whole bunch of people who I thought I was really close to... and now I realize since I'm being a good boy that they're kinda crap people who enjoy treating others like crap.  But a lot of people have been really cool to me lately and seem to enjoy my company... it's been nice.  They got shit from Austin.  Ha! 

I've been thinking about getting more into photography and writing... there are a couple of small weeklies around here that could use a jolt of textual adrenaline... I'll see whose ass I have to kiss.  I feel like I've been spinning my wheels lately, and the guy I'm starting to date does a lot of shit... which is sort of inspirational in its own way... and I'd like to feel like I'm doing something too... instead of just getting wasted with hardcore RVA kids in bars all the time. 

If this is growing up, I find the whole process to be rather ridiculous. 

Le sigh. 

I guess I can say that I'm rather disappointed that Austin is going to fall through because of my bizarre preferences in a what a city looks like and contains... but I'm proud of myself that I made the right decision to go out there and check it out first before doing something stupid and rash.  Other than that, I'm looking forward to this year... maybe there can be some more art or something.  It might be nice.

Once you know where you stand, you know where to go from that point. Good luck!

So did you drive around Texas in a pink Volvo with bumper stickers saying "I love the Dixie Chicks! Hillary 2008!"  :D  :D I got that from the bumper stickers thread (I think I'll bump it today :D)

About your quote above, I wish you the best. I'm still friends with my friends from the 1990's but we're not nearly as close as before. This will come off sounding obnoxious & judgmental (and a thread hijack too, sorry) but to me it seems few things change in these boys' lives. Drinking, smoking, illicit drugs, going out a lot, strange bedfellows, drama, etc. are still part of the equation. But I think I'll always love those boys and their stories and reminiscing about yesteryears ...and they love me too. They respect my decisions with all the California health stuff I'm into (They make fun of my aromatherapy bottles calling them Alex's poppers) 

Good luck with the photography etc - The new honey sounds like a renaissance man and it's nice to hear he's providing inspiration
