I was chatting with someone last night and realized I hadn't made a post about this...

I'm moved into my new apartment (which is a total lemon. I've had to call maintenance over and over), but I'm already looking at another move... Across the country.

When I was out in California last year, visiting [livejournal.com profile] kirax2 , I got a job offer in San Diego, which came with the offer of very reasonably priced living space. Just recently, I finally gave an official "yes". So, sometime this summer, probably at the end of June, I'm going to be packing up and moving all the way across the country, to a city I've visited twice, over a thousand miles from my family and the place I've lived me whole life.

I'm excited as all hell, and I keep having panic attacks and crazy mood swings (sorry,[livejournal.com profile] faile_neume ) and this is the biggest thing I've ever done. I haven't told my family I took the job. I think I'm going to do it on Friday, and that's giving me a whole 'nother set of issues.

I want to keysmash forever. That's not very productive, though.

On the plus side, this means I'll be 1.3 miles from Comicon. Not that I have tickets or anything, because I'm afraid to spend a discretionary cent because this move is going to be expensive, and I'll be paying double rent for a few months, too.

I keep deleting keysmashes. My head is about to explode.

Home again, home again... I made it back to my apartment around ten tonight and immediately got into my bed. Oh, bed. I only missed two things about home on that trip - my bed, and the dogs.

So...the biggest news is that I may very well be moving to California in about a year. THAT'S KIND OF EXCITING. I had the most marvelously amazing time, with [livejournal.com profile] kirax2  and her family, and I was so sad to leave them ;_;. I met a whole bunch of fantastic people, and [livejournal.com profile] kirax2 's daughter is the cutest thing alive except maybe for their kitten (and puppies - not their puppies - just puppies in general. Puppies are pretty cute).

My family and I explored the coast and got lost and nearly died twice, and I got within about ten feet of a mother deer and her baby, and we saw wild sea lions, and hiked Muir woods, and hiked the san andreas fault, and hiked San Francisco in general, and my legs and feet are very sore. ^_^;  I rode six different kinds of public transit in just two days. I learned the transit system pretty much memorized everything north of Mission and East of Gough, just so I wouldn't have to walk up any more damned hills. Downtown San Francisco is a very steep place. My hometown is concave. It was a bit of a shock to my calves. The best part, though, was my mom pulling out a map to try and figure out how to get to the Orpheum Theater last night, and I was able to say, "oh, no, we'll just take the Powell-Mason car to Market and then catch the F trolley! It stops right there on the corner of Hyde!" and my mom and sister just kind of blinked at me and let me lead them all around town. 

Also I managed to spend six days and five nights in proximity to my father and we only had one shouting match! That's like a record, I am pretty sure. I saw Wicked, and now I want femslash or ot3 fic, if anyone has any recs. The play contradicts the actual Oz books completely, but then, so do the movies, so I just sort of went with it. There were definitely moments where I went THAT'S NOT HOW THE TIN WOODSMAN GOT TINNIFIED and such, but I enjoyed it overall. That was last night.

The food was amazing. I ate so well, for the whole trip. The best part is, I only spent 92 dollars on transit, and then maybe fifty or sixty on other things, and two different people gave me 100 dollars each to spend while I was there - so I think I actually came out *ahead*, if you don't count the work I missed.

Which reminds me - back to work tomorrow. So I need to stop babbling and try to get back onto CST. Good thing I'm so exhausted. XD

I'm dying a little of excitement, and also exhaustion from running around all week and being so excited 24/7. I will be waking up in seven and a half hours to go catch a flight to ACTUALLY MEET [livejournal.com profile] kirax2  IN PERSON.

I am really, really tired, but I'm so worried about not getting any sleep that I'm afraid I'm not going to get any sleep.

I just...really really hope we click in person as well as we have for collaborations. I am going to be so ridiculously awkward, you guys. There will be a lot of nervous laughter and losing control over the volume of my voice. I am such a huge dork.

I am pretty sure the only thing left for me to do is finish downloading this audiobook and go to bed. Oh god.

I feel like I'm four and waiting for Santa.
