Long time no see, right?
What have I been up to? Well, I'm in Sleepy Hamlet, working my ass off. About to do another one of those West Coast educational tours. We leave this weekend. Going with one of my good friends. So that's exciting.
One of the reasons that I've been gone so long is that I got REALLY sick. I ended up in the hospital for about four days right after my birthday. The final verdict was a bacterial infection. I lost about fifteen pounds and didn't feel right for almost two months in total. I'm still taking five pills a day for another couple of weeks. Hopefully I'll be totally back to normal by Christmas.
Still recovering from the whole Maxine thing. I recently sent her an e-mail, which was our first real communication in six months. She wrote me back today and told me, among other things, she now has a boyfriend. I'm not as freaked out as I thought I would be. Then again, I don't have all the information yet. So I reserve the right to express my angst later.
Speaking of getting over exes, I met a girl here in the Hamlet that I like. I know that she likes me. I don't know if it's continuing past this weekend, when I leave. That's frustrating.
On the whole, however, I have to say that I'm fairly happy with my life. And that's a good thing.
I have to get up in six hours, so I will close for now. I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be back here soon.
