Happy Solstice! Sorry I've been AWOL!

December 21st, 2007 (09:42 pm)

I love you all! I really do! And I think of you all! In Portland, Illinois and Palestine and my B-town friends whom have not seen very much in the past few weeks...
All is going well. I am currently in North Carolina with my partner's family, it is the first Christmas that we have spent together and his family has been very warm and sweet to me.
Graduate applications are winding to a close, it has been more stressful and time consuming then I ever thought, but it is almost finished. Soon I will stop growling and subsisting on caffeine and sugar and have a social life again.
Went to my friends' Colin and Leah's wedding last weekend and it was lovely. Then I went the Daniel's end of the year party and had a wonderful melty momment when several people in a row told me that they were happy they had met me this year....And I realized that although it has been an very changing and growing and occaisonally nervewracking 12 months, I am very blessed and lucky to have the community I have, even when all my peeps are not in my time zone.
Love and joy come to you and to you your waffles too!
Now I am going downstairs for some serious ping-pong training sessions. Apparently sections of Ben's family have a competitive streak. And the Newcomers are not without a sense of honor.
