I am officially dubbing this the Summer of People Who I Never Thought I'd Hear From Again Reappearing Now for Reasons Unseen. I got a message on myspace from a girl I was friends with in third grade. A couple of friends have contacted me after we haven't talked in at least a year. It's really bizarre, because logically you know that people change, but you still can't quite reconcile the old friend with the new one and all the little changes seem to make a world of difference.
Everyday life seems so ordinary most of the time, that you don't really notice how much things are changing until you look back at it all. I guess that's the whole point of keeping records like these- it's an explanation of the process that gives birth to the present.
And now that I'm done feeling like the protaganist of a YA drama... I got a job at a fabric store in Beaverton called Mill End. It's almost ridiculously slow at times (I spent eight hours rolling up bolts the other day) but the people there are really cool and it sure as hell beats some of the other crappy jobs I could be doing. Plus there's a really cute girl there who's probably straight but still fun to hang around with, which helps considerably. (Because girls make everything better.)
So aside from my job and working on my costume for Kumoricon, I'm not really doing much this summer. But that's fine with me, because I could defintely use the break.
