I Did

Green Day - Time Of Your Life
Another turning point;a fork stuck in the road.
Time grabs you by the wrist; directs you where to go.
So make the best of this test and don't ask why.
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time.
It's something unpredictable but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind.
Hang it on a shelf In good health and good time.
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial.
For what it's worth, it was worth all the while.
It's something unpredictable but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

The best thing about a rainy day is curling up in a blanket on a picnic table at the park, under the shelter; sitting next to a friend and only talking a little.

Renewing my Obsession

Sometimes, when I don't do anything SCA-related for long periods of time, either because I am in Wyoming, or working every single day except every other weekend, I forget how much I really really truly love being in the SCA. And after a while I start to think that there really is life for me without the SCA. And then I go to an event again and realize that the whole time, I wasn't really breathing very deeply while I was gone.

I FENCED again this weekend! It felt so incredibly awkward, not having done it since November, but it was so good to pick up a rapier again this weekend, and remember that I really really do want to get better at this.

There's No Place Like Home

I'm glad to be back. Really. I got to see my babies again, and hang out with my grownup people, and am going to an SCA event this weekend (I was starting to go into withdrawal). Kaia and I found a new apartment. I don't want to move out of my farmhouse. I am incredibly selfish, in that I don't want to think of someone else living there. I was so happy there. But now I have to move up to The City. Because it's hard for an archaeologist to find a real job in Vermillion. I hate cities. But...we do have a nice apartment, and it's on the edge of town, so I'm going to make the best of it.
So glad to see everyone again!

But I will miss Wyoming.
