so far

So far on the summer of possibilities:

I've seen: Ironman, Sex and the City (twice) and today I will see the new Indiana Jones.

I've read: Sold by Patricia McCormick. It's about a girl from Nepal who is (perhaps) unwittingly sold into a brothel by her family.

Baker Towers by Jennifer Haige. That one was about a family living in a PA coal mining town starting in the 1940's and ends in the 1970's. Sounds like a chick book, but I think men would enjoy it as well.

I've begun reading: Truck: A Love Story by Michael Perry and also Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas.

I've started two new paintings: (hopefully I will be finished with one by the end of the weekend.) (Pictures will be forthcoming of the last ones I've completed as well as the new ones.)

I've gone for a walk everyday. Yesterday I went for two walks. The walks are making me happy.

I am working at Former Place of Employment: a.k.a the college I worked at for five years prior to moving. I am working as a tutor for a few students and as a special needs helper for another. In other words, I am doing what I used to supervise over. I am a peon. I couldn't be happier about this.

Internship: haven't done a thing for it. Reason? Cause I emailed by advisor on Monday asking him to advise me and I have not heard back from him. So, I refuse to lift another finger until I do.

I have some creative writing sentences flowing through my head; I'm sure they will make there way to the keyboard within a few more days. It's a process.

Level of bitterness: Pretty much gone. I've accepted that Brazil wasn't supposed to happen (for whatever reason.) I'm happy being back at Former Employer cause gosh, I was missed by everyone (and no one likes the gal who replaced me. Ah, it's amazing how nice that feels) and well, being missed and being liked is good for the psyche. Still not happy about having to take econ, but based on the quizzes I just took, perhaps it's a good thing I am.

When the alarm goes off: I don't mind it. I am staying up reading until about 1 a.m. and sleeping until 8:01 a.m. every morning. Funny how when there really aren't any obligations going on it's easier to get up and going in the morning.

Ah, fresh air. Damn, but it does feel good.

YAY! I'm glad to hear you're enjoying things.

And I'm very curious on your thoughts of the new Indy. I didn't like it much (good movie, but not a good INDY movie) but that's just me.

I'm also totally jealous you've seen SATC twice.

ptg: It was a classic 1930's wild chase serial take on an adventure in the Americas. Story, eh. Special effects, cheesy. Acting, good. I just kept in mind that they are a tribute to the old movies and I was able to let my mind escape for 2 hours.

SATC, very, very good. I always related a little too much to the show, I thought. To many men, incidents, ideas, thoughts I could relate to and felt the same way about, the movie is the same. Shares a lot of my ideas about relationships and friendships.

I will be seeing it a third time. Once by myself, second with Mama, third with my best gal.

Now, if someone could explain to me why men hate the show/girls/cast so much I would love to hear it. The back talk I've heard from radio, Tv, it's unbelieveably mindblowing to me.
Empowered women, what's wrong with that...or did I just answer my own question?

Update: I'm still waiting for the mullet to fully grow out; and am having the flames airbrushed onto the Camaro. So I should be there real soon.

P: Most excellent. Don't forget to leave the business in the front and the party in the back.
Sure, take that however you want.
