Two years later...
Monday. 2.1.16 12:50 am
My last post was New Year's Eve, 2013....my, my, my, how the time does fly.
Some of you might be wondering: "why now, Muffy? Why return to the Island on this arbitrary Saturday evening?" Well, when it's past midnight and you're wide awake from spending the entire day sleeping off a near-death hangover, boredom and free time pushes you to do some crazy things. Like write a blog post.
Let's play catch up, shall we?
I moved to the city!
And I have loved every second of it. I thought I would get a little homesick for suburbia and easy parking, but not one bit! There are days when I wake happy simply because of where I am. To backtrack a bit, my last living situation became a giant clusterfuck of alcoholics (yes, plural), violent outbursts, court dates, and just a lot of mess that I didn't need to be around. So you can understand why I am thrilled to be in my own place, not just because of where I am but also because of what I don't have to deal with anymore :) Woo hoo!
I had a boyfriend. We broke up back in June. I cheated on him :-\ I think being upfront about it somehow helps absolve some of my guilt. It makes me sick to think about hurting him, and that I'm one of "those guys" now. I have this weird fantasy where we spend one last night together, not having to say much, and I kiss him on the forehead as we fall asleep. Then, in the morning, we wake up and everything goes back to the way it was, but at least I had a chance to show him I still care.
This summer I ran (and competed at) the World Jump Rope Championship in Paris! In fact, it was held at the very same venue in the south of Paris where I met Zanzi back in 2011!
Since the new year, I've already checked two things off my bucket list:
By the end of this month I hope to have a full time job as a web developer. I'm ready to emerge from my adolescent caccoon and spread my wings in a whole new land of adulting.
Also, last night I made honey-sriracha chicken wings and they were to die for (view recipe). Next time I'm going to add more honey and some flour to the sauce to make it thicker. YUM.
Ok, I think that's all for now. I will return with some more in-depth posts. Muffy over and out.
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
YAY to getting your own place! I'm jealous of you really, travelling the world, having fun.. I cannot wait for my own adventure!
Ah.. I also had a boyfriend, we broke up in July and then things got super weird and I don't know what I should be doing about this one.

Hard to believe this is your first post in two years... I am definitely glad you came back, though!
It's great that you have your own place. There is a possibility that I will be moving up to Seattle in the future, so maybe I'll get to see it someday, haha.
Sorry to hear about your relationship, though. :
Looking forward to seeing more entries!

Yay for coming back here! The idea of having one more night is really nice, and if you really can make it work out that way, it's really nice to have that closure. But it's usually best just to not risk it.
I'm glad you're liking your new place! Now that you're actually in the city, we'll have to get together one of these days for drinks and such.
re: the bacon was something my coworker cured himself. He bought meat directly from a butcher and cured it at home with his own spices. So not store-bought, process stuff =)

Wow, your old roommate situation sounds totally nuts! I'm glad you are free!
It's weird for me to think about you getting drunk, hanging around with alcoholics, and living on your own in the big city. Since I've known you for so long I feel like one of those aunties that says, "Alcohol? Adult problems? Not my Muffy-darling! He just goes to school and skips rope!"
Then I read this entry and I realize that I really do not even know the Muffin Man [the Muffin Man, the Muffin Man].

WHAT THE HECK
You think you're out of the loop? When were you in Paris? I was there for a whole month of the summer. June, to be specific. And you had a boyfriend. And I don't bother keeping track of where anyone lives anymore.
Yeah I was dating for nearly eight months. Got the boot in August.
What big city are you in right now? I'm still in Atlanta, for the time being.

I'm glad you got out of that crappy living situation! Living with alcoholics is just bad news and can get scary. Done that before. Enjoy the big city and being all grown up! :)
