  1. It’s Not All Bad
    So I’ve been having a hard time here again. (Did it ever stop being hard? I don’t know really.) Some days it feels like I’m dying of loneliness, but yet I’m paralyzed by the idea of being surrounded by people I don’t know. I’ve learned that one-on-one (or two-on-two, as the case may be) interaction is the only thing I really look forward to. Too much more than that, and it feels like I’m having a panic attack.

    I swear to you, I was not like this before… so the best I can do to explain it is that whole Culture Shock Monster. *sigh*

    And just when I want to sit and bawl my eyes out, God seems to say, “Look, baby girl, and enjoy.” And then I get views like these on my walk home from the bus stop.

  2. Old and New
    OLD: I drove a car again for the first time in four months. Turn-indicator is on the right side, so I turned on the windshield wipers with vigor every time I got to a corner. It was late at night, and Marj coached me through it. No casualties to report at this time.

    NEW: I was “Production Assistant” on a shoot yesterday. The office was shooting an ad for a radio station, and I got to keep track of timecodes for the director who is a friend of Hans’. The fact that I had to get up at 5:50 and the other fact that there were 50 children involved with the shoot aside, it was a good time overall.

    And then we went out to our favorite sushi spot and walked to a cafe on the river for strawberries and cream for dessert, and it was such a lovely evening. Wheee!

    Oh yeah, and at the dessert restaurant, there was a duo playing live music, and they honestly played “Midnight at the Oasis”. But that probably won’t matter to people who aren’t huge Waiting for Guffman fans.

  3. Not Even Kidding
    We saw a real live koala in a tree yesterday by Hans’s brother’s house. He is cute. I want to keep him.


    The reason we were out there in the first place was because I was given a treasure map, and we had to go find it.
