My First Post…Saturday September 15, 2007 - Author: NightStorm -
So… if you’re looking at this, then obviously you notice that I made a change. After a few years of staring at the flash site, I decided it was time to just steer away from the conventional website and moved over into the conventional blog. Well, sort of. I imagine that as time progresses, I’ll become bored with this, and make even more changes to it, turning it into an eventual disaster of a site that is totally impossible to navigate, leading to yet another “redesign”.
Anyway, what’s up in my life. Well, I’m happy… that’s something that is still fairly new in my life. I moved back to BC after 7 years away, and am now with a wonderful woman named Tami, who has amazingly managed to fill in a very large hole in my life that started when I first moved from BC. We haven’t picked a date for the actual wedding, but it’s coming sometime (she has the ring, so it’s got to ;)). She was there for me through every problem I experienced while I was in Michigan, offering me advice and just being my emotional anchor… but it wasn’t until I was back in BC before I realized what was always there right in front of me. Guys are slow like that. I guess sometimes it’s all about taking chances.
I took another one of those the other night too (chances, that is). On a whim, decided to see if I could find Tanis on facebook. I had one hit, but there was no picture (and a security feature on facebook is that people can’t view your profile unless you are on their friends list). I sent a random message to someone else on her friends list asking if it was really the Tanis I knew (linked a picture of her and I together), and amazingly, I am now back in contact with my best friend who I have not seen in 10 years. It’s like everything is suddenly coming together, and making up for all the shit that I had to go through while I was gone. Karma, perhaps, or just life saying “I guess you deserve a break for once”.
Still trying to adapt to being back in a city… well, sort of a city anyway. The idea of being able to hear things at night is a bit of a blend between refreshing and annoying. Its refreshing to hear that “white noise” in the background, but at the same time, I swear if the neighbours behind us don’t shut their little football up at night, the least of their concerns will be whether their drunk friend can find his car at 3 AM (last night… you had to be there). It’s nice having stores nearby though… that’s something you really miss when you’re on Pender. No need to get in a vehicle or spend an hour walking just to go get a pop or a snack.
Anyway, I guess that’s sufficient for a first post. At the moment, I’m sort of more testing that this will actually post (yay for post to email!) and how it looks when/if it does.
Hope everything is going well for you all (those who care to actually read this).
