    It's weird, months can go by without feeling absolutely nothing. I go by and feel numb during that time. Then, out of nowhere, I begin to get so sentimental watching something on Netflix, or looking at the stars at night. Today, my cat decided to take a nap on my lap(since it's odd since she's very grumpy), and I was there stroking her back and I began to get teary eyed for some reason. After that, a wave of emotion overwhelmed me for a good 10mins.

    I feel lighter now, but these things come out nowhere, I tell ya lol

    Ever closer. I think I should be more freaked out than I am, but for some reason I am not. Dunno what's up with that.

    I will, however, admit to checking the entire flight itinerary looking for the mistake (in day, month, year, or whatever) that I quite obviously made when booking flights. I booked flights in late March... I've checked them probably... 200x since then. I will probably check them another 20x or so before we leave. Cuz... that's how I roll.

    But... other than that? I'm just sorta calm with it. (And the tix checking always happens. Even if I'm say... driving to Minneapolis or Chicago to see a show. Every time I stop for food or gas or bathroom? I check my show tix. Check to have them, check them I'm going on the right day, etc & so forth. I've never screwed up... but I always compulsively check anyway)

    So far, I've only packed my camera gear. I'll start on clothes soon, I suppose. Pack up most of what I need... do laundry and pack up the rest. And then it'll be all done but the rest of the waiting, I guess.

    Seeing some pretty amazing relationship things happening around me... same kinda story for both, really. One story is about a year old and that is the story of my former supervisor Jake and his wife. High school sweethearts who went their seperate ways... married and had children with others, lived half a country away from each other and... after divorces for both, they managed to hook up again (via social media) and have now married each other... I photographed their wedding last June... and I've witnessed them and their love many times since then. It's pretty cool.

    Now coworker/friend Nick. Same kinda story. His wife & the mother of his young teen daughters was tragically killed in an accident 13 years ago. (When she was just 25... sad story, that.) A few years later, he hooked up with a new woman... never married, though they were engaged in the latter years. She is with him for seven years, helping him raise his children and what not... until July 4th weekend, when she decided she'd rather smoke crack than be in a relationship. (True story...)

    Within days of announcing his break up on social media, a girl that had crushed on him all the way through high school contacted him... and now they're going out and what not. Nick's sister (also a coworker & where I've gotten most of the 411) said it's been magical to watch, this rekindling of old, high school romance.

    Crazy how that can happen sometimes, innit? I think social media is playing a big part in such things, obviously. Certainly in both of these cases. People looking up their long lost loves and hoping (secretly perhaps) to rekindle something or at the very least check out how they're doing and maybe share a few words.

    I don't believe in fate or such things... but things like this almost suck me in, I have to admit.

    I don't have a high school love to rekindle, so not likely for such things to happen to me. (And I'm ok with that, thanks!) Relationships weren't my thing then (sex was my thing then) and it's still not my thing today. (And I've always known that.) I'm not even sure how I'd react to such a thing if it were to happen. (It's not outside the possibility that someone was interested, but I was never approached, after all.) I think the whole circumstance would weird me out a bit. I'd probably be all... confused.

    Snapchatting with my nephew at the moment... getting all our quackers in a row before we leave. He's anxious about the trip. I know this because one of his latest texts said that he was excited and slightly terrified. I'm only anxious about the flights. Getting there and getting back again. That's it. The rest? Well... we're traveling to Scotland and Ireland... not some place with a terrifically different culture with people that speak a different language or anything like that. Once we get there, we'll just do as we would do here. No big deal. Getting there, getting back... that's the important part.

    Time to rest my bones on the sofa and peep out something on telly. Feeling a bit tired this evening for some reason... which is odd cuz I went to bed within 15 mins of my bed time and I slept well. *shrugs* Who knows...

    I've outgrown a few people during my life time, some later than i should have - I still don't regret it.
    Thank you. I feel kind of bad dumping here, but Perc's also a wonderful medium to gather my thoughts together. It's been quite a ride, but I like to think I've at least been learning some things along the way.

    ----

    Am reading Robin Hobb's Liveship series. It's eerie how I can relate to each of the characters--the author brings wonderful light to her abusive villain characters and how they turned out that way, even while her heroes feel very real pain and confusion, not just the typical self-righteousness and blind faith common to heroes of other fantasy genre books.

    I can also add to my list another fantasy genre book that does the monotheistic religion well. (The other being the Dragon Brigade series by Margaret Weis and I'm forgetting her co-author right now...) Dragon Brigade went more into the darker sides of a Christian-like religion, such as banned books and a whole order set up specifically to keep certain knowledge from the common people. I liked that you see the religion had some very good reasons for locking those books away, even though in the end they were wrong to do so. It's a much more satisfying grey area than the IRL banning of Harry Potter, for instance.

    And obligatory with any banned knowledge is the scholars (scientists) decrying it! You got to see how someone who was very..INTJ shall we say?...could also be a strong man of God. It's not something you see often, particularly in fiction, and it was well done here. Poking holes in authority left and right while also having a strong faith in a goodness that transcends all petty mortal bickerings, I think is the best way to sum up Father Jacob. And he's a smartass. Of course. Obligatory.

    But Liveship focuses more on the unknowable aspects of a singular benevolent deity. Such as why does He/She/It let such awful things happen to good people? One of the characters--the priest-in-training--also follows some very Eastern philosophies, and it's interesting to see how he maintains--or discards--certain aspects of them as he comes out of his monastery and gets thrust into a community of the very worst kinds of people. Questioning whether the living ships have souls (and turns out he may be quite right in doubting they do) was also a very interesting touch.

    But I digress..back to reading! The move is almost complete, just staying up here for a couple more days to put some things in order--neither of which take more than a few hours each so I have a lot of spare time. Suppose I would be wisest spending it applying for a seasonal job, but.....reeeeeeading.

    The best feeling is to know you aren't alone, standing up with others and fighting for what's right and true knowing you all support one another.

    Of course I'm typing this while drunk and alone. Haven't seen one friend in over a week, haven't seen the other in over a month thanks to my 2 jobs, and I'm single. I hardly have time for my own family.

    So am I fighting by myself? Will someone else's eyes ever see something in me besides a workhorse? Or shall I be forever doomed to a lifetime of strenuous labor thanks to the career I chose?

    All I want is for someone to relax my grip on myself, to calm the sound of the static so I may once again hear the peaceful silence I was once connected to. Only then can I truly sleep and rest. The only choice I have is the poison that I pick in my somnolence, the method of which I pay a debt I never owed simply by being alive. I have no problem paying that debt, only with the noise that fills every crevice. The noise that keeps me from feeling alive, from feeling proud, and from feeling peace, because I cannot bring that for myself.

    I tried. I gave it my all and will continue to do so, but for how long will this pain continue where I must turn to unconventional means to remain a husk doing nothing but what is expected of me?

    Today I had a moment with a coworker. Apparently I caught him pretty off guard with a comment that was basically dead on. "How did you even pick that up..?"

    I have no idea.

    You just got Ni'd, son.

    The you just got Ni'd son, literally made my morning

    Just as I suspected, I could hardly sleep last night - I just spent it tossing and turning. Doing that stupid half dreaming/half awake thing. When I did fall asleep, eventually, I had dreams about dying.

    @warweasel - I thought I was the only one compulsively checking things like that I do it with a lot of different things. I did smile when I read that - it's good to know it's not just me being nutty!

    These are series books? I'm interested... dragons are mentioned, I like dragons. (There are dragons... right?) Hook me up with the 411... I need new books! And these are proper books and not ebooks? Cuz... I can do ebooks, but I much prefer the real deal.

    You know, I don't do many things compulsively, but this is one of those things that I do. I have never made a mess out of any travel plans, arraingments or anything related to such. Not a single time. And yet? I compulsively check things. I guess because I just know that the one time I don't do so, it'll be the time that I have fucked something up and then I'll kick myself all over the place. And I'm real good at kicking myself!

    I guess it's some combination of INTJ = contingency planner + INTJ = perfectionist = compulsive tix checking. Or something.

    'Tis raining here. Making thunder and all that noise. This explain my mild headache that started up around 0500 and the crankiness in my worse knee since yesterday. Apparently, it knew it was going to rain way back then. (Shoulda been a meterologist, eh?) We need the rain... I hope it just doesn't make a bunch of racket that I can't sleep through.

    It's hot and humid as all hell, too. Well, hell... just checked my weather app... it's actually cooler now than when I left work. Apparently, a cold front has rolled through. (And by cool, I mean it's 79F/26C)

    The thunder is freaking out my dog a bit. If he could crawl IN me, he probably would. Poor puppy dog.

    Work was... eh. Still. Yet? Whatever. I worked central control tonight and not my regular post which means I didn't do a goddamn thing. I colored all night long. (All 8 hrs, not even kidding... my finger hurts, as a matter of fact.) I'll need new pencils when I come back from vacation. Some of my pencils (black, especially) are nearly gone and are certainly to the point where it's difficult for my large paws to manipulate the little stubbin that's left.

    IHOP with the boy. He made a list of things to pack whilst he was at work and showed it to me to see if he had everything that he needed and if I noticed anything missing that he might need to bring along. He had a pretty thorough list so I think he's good to go. He's got about what I'm going to have, more or less, so... yup. It's all good.

    Time to get a little gaming in, I think. I don't have much time before nighty night time and I'm going to not have any time for gaming after tomorrow and for a couple weeks following, for obvious reasons.
