I'm Moving

I've been trying to post for a few days, but my site hasn't been working. Luckily the computer gnomes magically fixed it tonight. Anyway, one of the reasons that I've been so busy lately is because I am moving!

I've been wanting to post about this for a while, but I've been waiting to make sure it's a sure thing. Between offers going back and forth and inspections, you never know what will happen in the end.

Anyway, a friend and I bought a condo right in downtown Austin. It's right next to one of my favorite clubs, The Foundation, and only a couple blocks away from some of my other favorite places like Halcyon, Alamo Drafthouse, Whole Foods (YES!), and even my work.

On Portland: Small Town Girl in a Bigger City

It's so weird to think about what I was doing this time last year. It has been on my mind a lot lately.

This time last year I had met Jonathan. We'd spent a good three weeks together and were getting ready for Halloween. If I wasn't at Drita's or Mulligans spending time with Jonathan I was at my friend Angela's or meeting up with her somewhere.

I wanted so very badly to be a dragon for Halloween. I had found the costume and ordered it at Halloween Express. Angela and I were shopping at Gordmon's since she worked there. I was still wrapped up in the throws of trying so very hard to impress Jonathan and wearing way more makeup than I normally do and flashy/sexy outfits. We all went to dinner at the Bardenae (I have no idea how to spell it) and I learned how very much he likes steamed clams, and that they are always disappointing.

My life had taken a complete turn and suddenly I had a taste of a lifestyle I wanted for myself. I think it is because of this I was able to put up with and provided so much money for people that I should not have, so much longer than I should have.

Drita has two lovely daughters and I babysat them every here and there. I remember when Jonathan invited me to go to Boo at the Zoo with him and his daughter. I had never done anything like that before and I was admittedly, a little bit envious of him. My life at the time seemed to be going in this brand new direction.
