Wow. It’s been so long, I’m not even sure where to start. My last post was on September 17, 2009, just over a year ago. I guess I’ll try to briefly catch up on what’s transpired in the past year and then move forward and be proactive about posting here again. Here we go…
First and foremost, the job. That changed a lot in the past year. In my last post I was working at what I now like to call “The Devil Company,” doing dispatch. HATED.THAT.FUCKING.JOB. That didn’t end up working out and so I was unemployed for quite some time. Did some odd jobs here and there to do what I could from sinking into a financial hole and then along came my current job. From this point forward I will always refer to it as Workplace or Office. LOVE.THAT.FUCKING.JOB. I’m back in the construction industry…er, actually we’re a demolition company which is exactly the opposite of construction…and right up my destructive alley! That’s kinda funny. I digress, I have always immensely enjoyed the construction industry. It just works for me. So, I am the Office Bitch, with the official title of Demolition Division Specialist. Woo hoo! It sounds all fancy…not so much, yet I still love it. I think because it’s challenging for me at times. I actually have to use my brain and it rocks. That and it’s not monotonous at all, which is another aspect of a job that I require. So, work is good, I love my coworkers and that’s that.
Ugh, the dreaded Significant other paragraph. He who I used to refer to as The Man is no longer a part of my life. I have moved on and have found someone else that I adore and love to spend time with. I haven’t figured out a name to use for him in my posts, so that will evolve with time…
Lately, a HUGE aspect of my life has been my little freelance project that I like to call You’ve Been Shot Photography. I’ve always loved photography and graphic design and I have been so blessed as to have been able to do some freelance stuff for friends with companies. It has been really fulfilling and I feel I’ve really evolved as an artist in the past few months. There is always room to grow though, and I look forward to continuing to hone my skills and fully enjoying it. I’ve been given the opportunity to take pictures for friends and family and I can only hope for more! It just keeps getting better each time, with each and every different experience and I’m hungry for more! This post has some of my favorite recent pictures from You’ve Been Shot.
Elsewhere, I am still living with my TB and loving it. The past year living with her has been some of the best time that I’ve ever spent with her. We were both really afraid to live together for fear of ruining our friendship, but decided that we were going to take the plunge anyway. It has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. I get to spend each and every day with my best friend in the world. It is the most convenient support group ever! We get to come home to each other and get to be the first person to be there if and when they need you. I couldn’t have ever wished or hoped for more out of living with her. It has always worked seamlessly for us. There have been no major issues to date, or even any issues in the cohabitation department at all, actually. Unfortunately, TB and I may have some crazy changes to our lives soon and may not be able to live together anymore. It sucks, I will miss my best friend but I know she will always be there for me even if we don’t live together. This isn’t a subject I really like to discuss and is most likely something I won’t really talk about on this blog. So, that is that.
Wow, that’s really been my year in a nutshell. TB and I have spent a TON of good times together and I will post pics from my personal collection as well as photography with my posts, so there will be a pictorial of the past year as we move forward also. If nothing else, I love the fact that this blog exists for my own personal needs. Maybe down the road it will be interesting to read these posts and see how much I’ve changed, grown and evolved as a person. I suppose it could also be sad, depressing or hilarious when being read in the future also. All I can say to that is BRING.IT.ON!

Random Hard Life Lesson #372: “DO NOT, under ANY circumstances have a shot of whiskey after you’ve consumed at least a bottle of wine. You will throw up, BRIGHT red later and HATE life the next morning. Plus, having a nice, cute guy have to pull over to let you puke on your way home is NOT attractive. You will say dumb things later and be completely ashamed and embarrassed. Even though you managed to pull a SHEL SHEL while wasted, which is usually a bonus, it’s still JUST.NOT.RIGHT.”
