A lot has happened since my last post. I've found an official, steady job, an apartment, and a roommate -- a friend roommate, not a "roommate" roommate -- I'll give you two guesses as to who he is.
I've also been feeling strangely... universal... ?... hmm... I don't think that's the right word... I'm not sure how to put it, but it's a very positive and new feeling -- and I like it very much.
... wait... maybe... maybe it's hope?
