Well I kept the same job for an entire calendar year, which is more than a lot of people can say, unfortunately. Almost everyone I know, their place of work has had substantial layoffs.

here are some things in 2008 )

In 2009 I plan to do the following things:

-write more fiction
-paint more pictures
-cook more food
-conlang more... conlangs
-visit [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore
-sever my ties to this area (particularly a)ensure my brother is sufficiently independent and b)liquidate my interest in this house) so I'm able to leave here and go live with [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore and her son
-oh yeah, and lern 2 be a good stepdad... soon.

...some of these things might be more challenging than others?

[livejournal.com profile] _hannelore! Lookity look look!

State of Vermont Pure Maple Syrup

blah de blah about moving )

If you can't bring yourself to get rid of things, I have advice that will work: While cleaning up, ask yourself, "Would I take this with me if I moved across the country?" If you wouldn't, throw it (or give it) away.

My cat seems to be better. A while ago she had an eye infection and was losing weight precipitously. I took her in and they gave her antibiotics, but said her blood tests showed no abnormalities and the vet had "no idea" why she was losing weight. Her tests made her look like a normal cat who was very skinny. Which would be fine except for her entire life up until now, she was a normal cat who was very fat. Yes, old cats get skinny and bony, but all of a sudden?

So I waited, and she stopped losing weight and appears to have gained a little back.

This doesn't answer the question of what I'm going to do when I move across the country and can't take my completely antisocial cat with me. I don't think many people want an old cat that bites and pukes a lot.

Also things have just been... hm insane. I had to go off hormones for about 3 months due to losing my insurance (back on now), and I grossly underestimated how horrible that was going to be. I dunno if any transpeople read this, but srsly don't ever go off hormones even for "a little while" if you can possibly help it. It won't "probably be fine".

What else. I am in kind of a developing new relationship, after being totally uninterested in dating or sex (with other people anyway) for several years. It is scary and exciting, frequently at the same time.

Relatedly, I'm thinking about where I'm going to live in the future, and what the process will be like of getting my brother transitioned to living on his own. He's able to do a lot by himself now, but I haven't ever pushed for his independence because I basically didn't see any reason to. It's not a living situation that I particularly mind, and I never had any motivation to want to live elsewhere. But both of us can do better for ourselves, can grow more, and grow up more, if we take the opportunity.

Many other things. Due to various twists of fate I'm seeing my old therapist again... like from six years ago. Nothing like that to make you consider how far you've come in six years, and yet how stuck you still are in some ways.
