To my dismay, I lost my cell phone last week. Fortunately, I have a new one now. My phone number is the same.

If I have ever had your number (or if you'd like me to have it), please write it in the comments. Comments are screened. Thanks!

My workplace does not recognize Employees of the Month, at least not in a traditional way.

Volunteer San Diego has Superhero(es) of the Month, complete with shiny red capes.

I'm tired. I've been exhausted for weeks. I hope the herbs my dad gave me (my dad works with herbal and natural remedies) will work soon. I feel so depleted and drained.

I'm not very good at relaxing. Writing about my exhaustion or concerns does very little. I got a massage from a friend recently and she said that I hold tension in every joint. I accept that I have the tendency to be anxious, but I would love to be able to go home and relax every once in awhile. I know this may take some practice.

So, my question for you: what do you do to relax? What works for you, what doesn't, and what would you recommend?

I've already posted this on facebook, so it may be redundant for some. I'm going to add more details here, though. The original questions are directed towards people who have lived in the cities in question, but I'd appreciate any feedback.
Please comment!

Also, I put up a poll!

Luke and I are looking to move for graduate school and to broaden our horizons. He has already been accepted to several schools, and we only have a couple of weeks to decide. Our choices are: Kansas City, MO; San Diego, CA; and possibly Seattle, WA.

These were the original questions:Collapse )

I should add these considerations:

I have the most friends in the Seattle area, and my mom only lives about 2 hours away. However, Luke is still waiting to hear back from the University of Washington, so we will consider it as a valid option for the time being.

I have relatives in Kansas City. Luke's parents are roughly 3 hours away. I have a friend in Lincoln, roughly 3 1/2 hours away.

I have a few acquaintances in the San Diego area. My aunt and cousin currently live in Claremont, about 2+ hours away (depending on traffic).

Yesterday, there was a simplicity and steadiness in us, as we worked side by side, he on the scaffolding and I on the ground. I forgot about everything I did or did not know and was present. I miss being useful in that way. I don't know if it was about the physical exertion or that I could see clearly what we had accomplished.

I helped Luke yesterday strike stage lights so he could hang his design for the next show. The last time I seriously did work of this sort was spring of my sophomore year. There are so many parts of me that I leave behind, only to uncover and recover. In any case, I enjoyed myself, and enjoyed working in the company of my love.

Albuquerque news [Feb. 28th, 2008|10:10 am]
Puccini's Golden West Saloon, more commonly known as "The Golden West," caught on fire early this morning. It is reported to be a complete loss.


While none of the downtown venues are what I would call "ideal," I have seen quite a few shows there. I was there last week for Perla Batalla and Javier Colis, and also have seen Erin McKeown, Melissa Ferrick, Rachael Sage, Band of Heathens, and Over the Rhine there. I was actually supposed to go to a show tomorrow night, and I bet its hosts are scrambling to find another venue on short notice. The two adjacent clubs - the Launchpad and the El Rey - are also damaged, but there's no word yet on when they will reopen. This news is unsettling for the Albuquerque music scene, which depended on these three venues to bring in music from out of town as well as performances from local bands.

There are far worse things that could happen, but it still makes me sad.

New Mexico results? What results? [Feb. 8th, 2008|04:00 pm]
If anyone was wondering what New Mexico's Democratic results were for Super Tuesday, you can keep wondering: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18785663

I did get to vote, and the conditions were relatively fine (a little over an hour wait). However, I should consider myself lucky...

I've falling in love with playing the guitar. Stay tuned for stories of a whirlwind romance, that include extensive strumming, plucking, and class instruction.


Or you could just know that I'm enjoying it.

Sometimes, it would nice to turn my thoughts to a lower setting. Like, from "overly active, critical, and analytical" to a something calmer. Maybe "contemplative and open" or "ready for the next moment."

My imagined thoughts of events are always far worse than what actually happens. Why can't I imagine a projected future in which everything goes well or at least decently?
