Actor out of work

Well, I made the extremely long drive to Michigan for the holidays. I actually did it over three days this time around. It started with a short drive to NH to visit my friend Josh, where he promptly took me out to dinner. It had been quite a while since I had been out for a nice steak dinner. Afterward I was able to give him his xmas present. And here it is on him:


I took my time getting to the Canadian border in NY, and finally got my car setup with EZpass before stopping near Buffalo at a Red Roof Inn. Hotels are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. So I enjoyed it. But now, I've spent the past few days at my parents' house, and I'm going a bit stir crazy. The holidays will be here soon enough though. I just need some things to do. I will certainly enjoy the actual holidays, but right now I am yearning to be back at my own place. The tree looks nice though.

the tree so far

You could take me to the dragon's layer.

It's finally the end of the semester, and it has been a crazy few months. I dislocated my shoulder for the sixth time since my senior year of high school. I've been in and out of a relationship. I have met some brilliant new friends, and reconnected with some old ones. I have knit a lot and finished little. I've gotten braver in the kitchen. I voted for gay marriage in a second state and watched it fail. I have gone on real dates. I gathered 13 weeks worth of data. So was it a good or bad semester? I'm not really sure yet. It was exciting at least.
