So just sitting here on a nice queit Friday night, killing Sister’s of Battle in Soulstorm, and reflecting on the craziness of the past week and more. Seemed like a good time to take a second and kind of pull out a Carl-esque blog post. Had some things i’ve wanted to catch you guys up on for the last few days, but just have not had the time.
To start, i guess i will open big, Angie and i broke up last Saturday. It wasn’t too pretty and it was all rather spur of the moment. Monday though we sat back down and talked for about 3 hours and have ended it all on good terms. In fact i would say our friendship is much stronger for it, but whether we get back together in the future is very uncertain. The reasons behind this split was pretty much my doing, in the sense that i had lost that connection we shared. I came to love her more as a sister and friend then as a girlfriend or potential wife. Other reasons being stress. The relationship was causing me so much stress, on top of school and work, that i was burning out. Burning out fast. So it was the best move so as not to cause each other more harm further down. You cannot have a healthy relationship if one person is holding back and i had been holding back and drifting out of this relationship for the last two months. So it was time to call it.
That being said i am staying positive. My stress levels have already shot down a fair amount and things are getting easier. Thank god i have no school next week, it could not have come at a better time. School has been going great so far, i think i am really finding my niche with this product photography thing. It may not be what i want to do exactly, but i am enjoying it thouroughly. The only difficult aspects are the 16 hour days when i have class and keeping on top of my assignments. That was why i had to miss the last D&D session. I was so close to not getting my last assignment done due to everything else going on i really had to focus on it. That was very stressful. Managed to get it done though and i think i did good on it. I am hoping to get head of the game next week by completing as many of my up coming assignments as i possibly can.
My Mom has not been helping matters much either. It’s sad it has taken me this long to do it, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks she will be living at a rehab center. There is one 45 minutes away from Montreal, it’s a 3-4 month program from what i understand. We are hoping she will go willingly, if not, then it all depends on how much flexibility i have to forcefully enroll her.
I have been renovating the house, the basement is looking pretty darn good these days. not 100% done yet though. The floor is in, i just need to finish patching the walls and paint. then is tart the upstairs. Everyone that comes over now is amazed by how fresh the basement smells and feels now. I am sorry for all the times you guys spent the weekend in there before, but next time you guys are over it will knock your socks off! I am hoping to buy the house from my mom after the summer or earlier if i can.
Work has been getting better. Still not the greatest thing ever but it is manageable. i already have a lot of plans now though for what i will be doing in the near future. I may have to stay at Pharmaprix a few extra months but i can bare it. Not too sound like an ass but for the last little while there has been a girl at work i had a thing for, turns out she has also had a thing for me too. In the near future we are going to be meeting up for drinks or maybe even dinner. I don’t want that to sound cold, just having split from Angie a week ago, but i gotta keep things rolling or else i may come down off this positive track i am riding and crash hard. I gotta take the opportunities when i can and see where things lead me. Besides, it’s just drinks or dinner not like i am saying i am going out with her right away. I would never want to hurt anyone on a rebound hook up. Guess i still just have to try and convince myself it’s ok and not feel like a complete bastard.
Guess those are the major highlights right now. Got some pipe dreams me and the brother in-law are kicking around. Might be helping them a bit with their potential new side business for some extra cash. Looking forwad to finally finishing the paint work on my Warhammer army so i can finally buy my command squad and atleast be able to field my army. Small as it is. Don’t worry Curt, i see us duking it out by the summer. I’ll take a week off work and come down for a few days with the army. We can butcher each other to our hearts content. We should mark that on a calendar!
Felt good to vent/rant/blog about the last little while, didn’t seem like so much was going on until i wrote it all down. Even then i am sure i am still missing some things!
Now i am heading back to kicking the sisters of battle’s asses with my underdogs! Hoo-Ah!
