Food For Thought
So I spent the first part of the day at scribble_fox's place. He and Rich took me out to lunch, and then afterward, while I was trying on the 5 new pairs of dress pants and jeans I bought the other day, Scribble was very kind in helping me pin and hem them. It's nearly impossible for me to find a good pair of pants that actually fit me; usually even if I can find a great waist size, the pant legs are like 6 inches too long, and always need altering. So thank you once again, Scribble, for fixing my pants!! :)

While I was over there, he also showed me the following video clip. This is about 20 minutes long, but well worth watching, if you have the time to spare! It is very insightful, about a woman's eye-opening experience, after surviving a stroke:



This has given me a lot to think about. When I was a young pup, I was very, *very* right-brained. As I've gotten older, I've found that I've actually shifted much more into the left-brain way of being/thinking, which I think explains a lot of my self-limitations. At some point in the near future, I hope that I will be able to achieve a good balance of both.

I spent the rest of the day doing laundry, cleaning up around iron_raptor's apartment, doing dishes, washing the floor, moving furniture around, and doing some general organizing. pat_the_fox felt bad that I spent my birthday cleaning, but honestly, cleaning makes me feel much better, especially when I'm feeling anxious. It just feels *so good* to bask in the shiny afterglow of a recently cleaned and organized living space. It's like a mental and emotional orgasm for me. ;)

Tim also left for Toronto early this morning, and will be driving back to Michigan tomorrow morning. I miss him already... *ears flatten* Being separated from him again is going to be challenging in many ways... but I think it will also be positive for us both in other ways. It will be nice to be able to go back to MI for a bit to see Tim, once I can stabilize a good job and apartment here first.

The second apartment that we really liked got rented out to someone who had expressed an interest in the place before us. I'm so disappointed. :/ I'm really hoping that the third time will be the charm.

Current Mood: pensive

Absence makes the heart yearn ... aww, forget it.

I hope you are able to do what you need to well and before long. It becomes all too tempting to just fly over every month, but then you are spending so much you wind up not doing so well at being independent like you planned ... egads, did I do this myself a decade back?

That was such an interesting video. She explains the whole thing so poetically and detailed. It reminds me of this book that my friend recommended that i should read. It's called Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. I read about 7 pages of it before we left his house, and it's very interesting. I hope to get it soon. It's basically about a man who became homeless and while he was, started writing questions to God, and then answering them himself as if God was speaking through him. It's not like a religious book, it's just this unique way of expressing basic questions that most of us have about life, and answers that of make sense in a way as if God were talking back. Pretty cool stuff, and very entertainin

I KNOW that feeling, and I am glad to not be alone with it. Why don't more men feel this way?

A lot of gay men I know feel this way. :-P Actually, Pat is very neat and Tidy too, so at least I know that when we share a place together, it will be well organized. :)

It only really works for me after living for months without really doing a thorough cleaning. THat gives it an extra euphoric "oomph." LOL!
