Holy crap! Every time I come back to deviantART I feel like a completely different person from the last time I visited. I always look at my journal entries and feel like a stranger wrote them. I also always feel like a jerk for abandoning such a lovely and magical website. Sorry!

Anyway, here I am, back again.

For any interested, things are going great for me. I've moved from Monterey to Berkeley to be with my beloved boyfriend Voroignis. I live in a badass house with a total of 7 people, all of us fantastic friends. We have fun times always and it's great because I'm never lonely and if we want to party all we have to do is say "Hey, who's home? Lets have fun!" and POW, it's a marvelous time!

I'm going back to school at John F. Kennedy University, which is where my mom finished her degree. They're helpful and supportive and seem to really want to give me a degree, so I like that. My major there is called "Social Ecology" which was the closest to my past Political Science/International Relations type degree.

I worked at a grooming salon for a while which was cool because I love animals and enjoyed getting to hang out with dogs all day. The part I didn't like was the customers, they were often lame. Also, I got the shit bit out of my hand by a Bull Mastiff named Mighty Joe McLovin. I still like Mighty Joe though and hold no grudge. My hand might be perma-scarred though. Meh.

I left that job though because I was offered a job with the U.S. Census Bureau where I made nearly triple the money I was making grooming and got to sort of be my own boss in the sense that I chose when to work and then went off on my own to do my job, and then billed the government where apparently they trust random people to tell them what hours they worked. So awesome. I never lied about my hours but I'm certain that many people added some extra time here and there. The down side to working that job is that it was guaranteed temporary and could end at almost any time. It seems to have done that recently, but I'm looking for another job and will get unemployment in the meantime, which is nice. Hopefully I'll get another job ASAP and it will rock, I'm confident that things will work out.

One of my best friends just got married this month, which kind of freaks me out a bit but is totally awesome. It's kind of interesting living with a married couple now. I mean, it's not actually different at all, but it's strange to hear people so close to me all like "my husband" and "my wife" and such. I was the "ring bearer wrangler" in the wedding (as well as the official unofficial wedding planner), which was chill because it was super small and there weren't bridal parties or anything like that. So I walked her dog and a small boy down the aisle because they couldn't be trusted to do it on their own, which is fair. After the wedding we went on a really great camping trip for a couple of days and it was wonderful fun.

I'm not doing much art these days, but hopefully that'll change (especially since I'm currently unemployed).

Speaking of being unemployed, does anyone have suggestions for places that will hire people with purple hair (other than Hot Topic)? Any advice will be much appreciated.

Anyway, that's about it for now, I'd say. Feels good to be "back"!

AN ADDITION:
I don't understand why people must be so upset all of the time. I decided to share an extremely cool thing on the forums that I thought people would enjoy and I instantly got harassed by people. The silliest part is that if they had bothered to check it out, they would probably have been stoked, but I don't think that they even read it. I was clearly misunderstood. I suppose that it's just "the way" of forums, but it certainly casts a depressing shadow on my potential return to DA. I sort of want to crawl into a little hidey hole in a corner and not come out. Obviously my absence made me forget what forums are like. Ohhhh well!

Oh I'm doing fantastic! Living in glorious Monterey enjoying living less than a minute from the beach and trying to go surfing and camping whenever I can (unfortunately not much time for that anymore). I'm still going to school here, eventually I'll graduate. I have a side job as a dog bather at Petsmart while I finish up school, which is actually pretty fun, I don't have to deal wtih customers very much and I just get to handle dogs all day, it's pretty chill. I visit the East Bay a lot and spend a great deal of time in Berekeley and San Francisco. I live with my best friend and a bunch of pets and we have a rockin' time daily. Things are really pretty great! What sort of job did you get?
