Feeling oddly reflective today

Hi Everyone! I'm not even sure if anyone stops in here anymore, but Hi nonetheless.

I was thinking in the shower this morning that it has been ten(ish) years since I joined the Sykospark forums and met all the wonderful people there. A few months ago, I went through my old posts on this blog and, MAN I was insufferable. It's really cool that I could come on here with all my teenage bullshit, angst and general strangeness and have people be okay with me.

Contrary to what my recent updates would suggest, my life these days is awesome. I'm still living in Colorado with my boyfriend, who is spectacular and extra-nerdy (plays warhammer, reads Doctor Who books, you know the type.). I work full time and recently started going to school full time attempting to get a bachelors in Fine Arts.

I still see Mark (PandaSandwich) on the regular. At this point, I've known him so long I don't know if I'm physically capable of not seeing him. We were in a ska band together for about three years and a little over two years ago, I got kicked out. I'm still not really handling it well, but it's a stupid thing to be sad about and those people are my best friends, so I do my best to put it out of my mind and move on. There is nothing cooler than being surrounded on all sides by music and fantastic people, though, I will say that.

So, yeah, life is pretty stagnant right now, but I'm okay with it. I hope all of you are doing well, too. <3

It's always nice to have something you can look at to reflect on your life.

It is amazing that all the best thinking is done in the shower. I wonder why that is?

Maybe this is self-promotion but nerds are the best.

Any chance I've heard of your band?

If it means anything, if you had stayed in the band, you wouldn't be the determined, passionate, expressive person you are now. You'd be the ska-leeched zombie the rest of us are (excluding maybe Nicole and Christian.)
