I have used you for 10 years now. Mind you, I haven't updated since July of last year, but yes. You are ten years old. I don't think I could ever delete you. Too many stupid updates from 15-year-old Lisa. So. Awesome.

Well, I haven't updated since I made it to Seattle, so here's one for you.

I've been here for 12 days, and I am having the absolute time of my life. I am 100% content, by far the happiest I've been in most of my life. It doesn't register with me often, but I get elated with I realized where I am and what I'm doing.

Tonight, I actually attended the Margot & The Nuclear So & Sos concert at The Crocodile, and that's when it sank in. There I was, surrounded by complete strangers, and I was having a blast. I didn't know anybody, and I loved it. I was dancing by myself, and I loved it. I was listening to fantastic music. I walked outside and saw the monorail pass by. I just...I'm so blown away at the result of my decision. I am in love with this town.

I adore sitting in my living room and looking out at the Space Needle. As cliche as it may be to live next to it, it serves as a great reminder of how I've "made it." I'm young, I'm free, and I'm living it up to the fullest right now.

I sometimes struggle very briefly in the morning when I wake up to another day alone in a place I'm not quite familiar with, but it passes rather quickly. I've met some good people so far, and look forward to making some good friendships here. I'd love to meet someone to date, too, but I won't focus on that. I'll let that happen on its own.

I guess I just wanted to ramble about how great I feel. Don't get me wrong, I miss all of you back in Texas, but I wouldn't take back the move for anything. It won't always be this good, and I will want to fold and come home, but right now...right now, it's perfect.

I beg of you that if you're considering doing something like this for yourself, just do it. You're only young once. Do it while you can. Get out. Go see the world. Go live.

God, I'm so happy.

My family gives me such a huge headache. I don't even understand how to deal with them. Blargh.

I'm going to attempt to document my year in seattle in a daily blog. Probably not here, though. I'll share the link when I figure out where it goes.

Have a good Sunday, all.

Seattle, solidified.

This will be me again in about a month or so:




Yep. I signed my lease with this apartment, which has a Space Needle view, and my lease begins May 1st. I'll be picking up the truck then, and will be there by Monday, May 4, 2009. I am beyond thrilled. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a fear in the world about this, but I don't believe my fears should hold me back from trying something new in life. If I hate it, the worst that will happen is that I'll lose some cash and come home. But I'd be rather mad at myself if I didn't at least give this a shot while I have the chance.

So.

Let the party planning begin. :)

I had the big talk, and...

He said yes. I can move, and I can keep my job.

Holy shit.

Holy shit.

1.) I'm so freaking thrilled.
2.) I'm so freaking scared.
3.) Oh, dear god, am I seriously going to leave Texas?
4.) ...

I have so much to think about.

I feel so different

I went to Seattle the 20-23 of Feb. It was the most amazing trip of my life. The weather was gorgeous, the people were so incredibly friendly, the buildings were beautiful, the walks were refreshing...

That being said, I've decided that I'm going to do everything in my power to move to Seattle. I've talked to everybody (all my family and most friends) about leaving, and I'm receiving mixed reactions. Most are very weary of me just picking up and leaving. Like I'm running from something. I can assure you that I am by no means running away from life. I'm just running towards a better place with better opportunities and better days and different people. The only person I have left to discuss this with is my boss. I think it will go over well. I think he'll let me do it, but I doubt I'll be able to keep the job very long. I'd like to, though. It's a great job.

Since I've been back, I've had little to no interest in Kevin. When I see him, I don't want to be around him. When he speaks, I don't want to hear him. When I see pictures of him, I don't even recognize him. He's not the person I used to love. And I'm not in love with him anymore. I'm actually quite detached from the situation. It's taken a long time to see it, but I see now how badly he treated me. He's given me the run around for almost 3 years. I tried with all of my heart, body and soul to make that relationship work, but it wasn't enough. And for that I will never blame myself for the demise of our relationship. Enough. I'm moving on. Very happily moving on.

But I'm not going to see anybody in Texas anymore. I've cut all ties with those I was talking to. I need to focus on me and how to get myself to Seattle as soon as possible.

So. I guess I'll update you soon with how the talk goes. And then we can plan my going away party. :)

Brief rundown on life.

Feb. 10th, 2009 | 01:04 pm

So. I'm living. I'm going on dates. I'm picking myself up and moving on. Time to do some erasing, though. Always weird to be going on dates with other people only to still have pictures of you and the ex kissing all over Facebook and such.

I've lost some more weight. Clothes and such that I've bought over the past few months don't fit anymore. Not even this ring I bought a few weeks ago fits anymore. It's nice, but kind of annoying.

Work is going pretty well.

Eh. I guess not much more to add.

Buy me a pug for Valentine's Day. It will make my year.

Sight. Seeing.

I just bought tickets to fly to Seattle at the end of Feb.

My family and I never took vacations, so it's up to young adult Lisa to see the world on her own.

Anyway. I'm pumped. :)
