Holy Mother Earth, where in the heck have the days gone?! I just logged on today, after receiving my new computer (bought off Ebay), and realized I haven't written anything since Beltane!!! And here it is coming closer to Samhain! Let me catch you up on some of the things that have happened in my life since Beltane.
#1: I moved from Lubbock to Amarillo to be with a friend of mine that I used to consider my sister because she was a single mom having "anxiety attacks". Now, I know you're wondering, "Willow, why do you say you don't consider her a sister anymore?" Well first off, from the moment I moved in with her, she quit her job and decided that as long as I was there I would pay all the bills by myself. Her "anxiety attacks" were just ploys for attention, and then when I wouldn't do everything her way and let her leech off me she bad mouthed me to the rest of my friends. So no, she is no longer my friend.
#2: I started nail tech school and am almost finished with it. I will hopefully be graduating in Mid-October, and plan on opening my own eco-friendly, green salon. I haven't decided where I want to open it yet, but those things will come with time.
#3: I started dating an amazing man and we had the perfect relationship. We didn't fight, the sex was amazing, and we had a wonderful open communication. However, he came home from work one day and told me he didn't love me and didn't want to string me along so we are no longer together. I still miss him every day and wish things were different.
#4: I bought my own house! It's kind of like a trailer house because I have to hire a house moving service any time I need it moved, but it's set up like an RV. It is 400 sq. ft. with living room, full kitchen, full bathroom, bedroom with a queen size bed in it, and a loft. It looks like a log cabin! I'm so proud of it. I am currently renting the land it is sitting on, and will probably be moving it again after I graduate from school because I've had some major disagreements with the manager here. I've found people standing in my driveway staring at my house, which is creepy by itself, but most especially because I am a single woman living alone with just a cat and a dog. When I mentioned something about it to the manager here at the park, he said, "Well what do you want me to do about it? It's a cute house, people want to look at it." Okay, I'm fine with people looking at my house because it is adorable, but don't be standing in my damn driveway!
So that's the major things... that doesn't include the small stuff like the fact that I caught my hand on fire last Saturday and now have second degree burns on 2 of my fingers, and a first degree burn on my index finger. But I know that I've missed my Pagany people so much! There's been so much drama going on that I just haven't had the time for anything. I missed a lot of school and almost got dropped from the program because of all the insanity going on. Now things have settled down much more and I know for sure that I want to finish my nail tech program. Its hard to stay in the habit of going to school everyday when you've missed as much as I did. I now make daily goals for myself. Today my goal was to stay until 5:00. At my school, we have to be there Tuesday through Saturday. Some girls stay from 8:30 to 3:00, some go from 8:30 until 12:30 and the ultimate full timers stay from 8:30 to 5:00. If you stay til 5:00 you get finished faster. My long term goal is to be done by mid-October, short term goal is to get 40 hours a week, and daily goal is to stay until 5:00 everyday.
I've yet to meet up with any Pagany people here in town, although I did email a woman who is setting up a city-wide Samhain festival. I need to carve out some time to call her. I haven't gone to the local Unitarian Universalist church because in all honesty, I have no freaking clue where it is lol. Their website gives an address, but I've yet to find the road they are on so I haven't attended a meeting yet lol. Some day I will find it. So, what all have I missed in your lives?
