There are patterns within a social-networking junkie's life that usually goes like this: updating everything everyday, updating everything a few times a week, updating everything once a week, and, inevitably, updating everything once a month. This usually has a lot to do with the life outside of the social networks, whether it includes working, schooling, hanging out with friends or familial obligations.
In my case, it's only three of the four.

I've been so busy with Mason and my family and babysitting and going to classes and running around and making challah bread and ordering mezuzah's and getting fish and playing pokemon and seeing Mason's family and eating delicious food and loving pets and going going going that putting out the monthly video or blog entry has become somewhat hard. I've been living out of my backpack for the past few months, which I don't mind at all because it's teaching me how to pack for traveling and such. I spend every other night at Mason's, which is nice; it feels like I get a mini-vacation every other day. I don't mind my life as it is; honestly, I'm much more happy now than I was in the last five years. I stay busy and I love just about every minute of it.

Also, I have changed so much in the past few months that I hardly recognize who I was. I don't drink at all anymore; Mason helps to keep me on track, whether he knows it or not. I'm Jewish as opposed to Christian, which I didn't ever think would happen, but is so very fulfilling and awesome that I'm stunned that I was ever a Christian to begin with. Besides just having my immediate family, I'm part of an entire other family that I really like and already count as my own. I'm a lot less socially awkward due to meeting so many new people within the past six months, which is good in the long run.

I guess what I'm trying to say is...
that I'm busy.
That I forget what all I do since I am so busy.
That my life is no longer just mine (which I am perfectly happy with : ]).
And that I'm a bit more private than I used to be due to sharing my life with another person.
Don't fret, because I'll still try to invite you into my life, even if it's just every so often.

Okay, now I'm going to go and pay attention to the romantic comedies that my sister picked out. I don't necessarily want to watch them, but I'm watching them with my mom and sister, so I guess I should put forth some effort.

I'll write soon...



It's Aliiiiiiiiive!

It's been forever and a day since I've written in here, and I honestly don't remember everything that's happened. Here's a quick update, though.

I DID enjoy my break, with a ton of family and Mason time. I enjoyed babysitting, had an amazing Thanksgiving, and got blankets, money, books and bookends for Christmas (I'm a nerd; so what?).
I started school yesterday (Tuesday), am taking a couple classes with Mason, and honestly I think I'm going to like this semester and my professors.
Mason's nephew was born and he is entirely too precious.
I've been watching Mason play through video games; he played "Red Dead Redemption," "Silent Hill II," some of "Silent Hill III," and lately I'm learning about the "Metal Gear" series, which is just as complex as Silent Hill if you had no knowledge before walking into the fourth game.
I went through some personal stuff that I'm not covering in here, but I will say that I'm a lot better and feel back to normal.
I got a grant for school and spent less-than-normal on books, which I love doing. Half.com is awesome when it comes to buying books.
I take each day as it comes, and I couldn't like life any better than I do right now.

I hope all of you are well; I'll write soon : )
