Life Lately

Life lately has been very full, mostly with good things.
• I’ve seen a lot of family including my mom who is back from India for a little bit.
• Agent Cooper had a urinary blockage and ended up essentially getting a sex change operation… which after all the vet visits, medicine, change of food and diet came to $4k.
• Directly related: I started a second part-time job at a movie theater kitchen which was humbling at first but now great. My co-workers are so sweet and I really like rolling sushi.
• Mom, Dean and I went to my cousin’s wedding in North Carolina. Stopped into Asheville on the way there and back.
• We hiked to a rainbow waterfall then ate tacos. It was a good day.
• Carey and I started co-hosting a podcast about horror movies.
• My Flagpole co-workers and I dressed up like Stranger Things characters for a one-night-only band, Stranger Danger. I was the demogorgon.
• Erin and I tagged cat faces by the train tracks.
• I lost at trivia but made a new friend.
• Me ‘n’ Dean are about to visit Seattle for our friends’ wedding then we’re heading to Buffalo a few days later for a family wedding. Love is in the air, coast to coast.
• My lady Kriss is getting married NEXT year and I’m a bridesmaid! So psyched.
• Twin Peaks. OMG, Twin Peaks.
• I turned 32 on March 20th. My favorite cake is the The Grit’s birthday cake. :)

Not good things:
• A dear friend had some major health scares recently. He’s in Seattle and it’s one of those things where no matter how much you try to stay in touch, you can never be as present and supportive as someone who is actually… present. I got a call from Gavin when things were looking really bad and have gotten somewhat positive updates from him and Kristy ever since. I think he’s out of the woods… or at least out of the hospital. Can’t wait to see him this summer!
• My ex-bestie asked to meet up awhile back. I believe he did this in goodwill to let me know he was doing much better mentally tho he no longer sees us being friends. I’ve reached an ok level of acceptance with this. I miss having him in my life but the most important thing is that he’s not as stressed and depressed… and he knows I’m still here if he does ever need my support.
• A few years ago, my amazing former boss died from cancer. When I finally went to see him that last week, I had to rush out of there and cry because the physical toll his treatments and illness had taken were too much. The past few months, I’ve had a recurring dream where I’m in my boss’s cinema basement watching cool, fucked-up movies, then I’ve woken up with puffy, cried-out eyes. Sometimes you just gotta cry I guess.
