I haven't been on here in about about a month. Haven't read anyone's entries or commented on anything. Sorry. I don't come to you with any exciting stories or anything because I'm not exactly living THE "college life" anymore. Instead I'm getting my stuff together, running around taking care of things like bank accounts, rent, and getting a job and as lame as that may sound, I'm actually liking it. On the weekends I read books that people think I'm reading for some lame class, things like the DSM, but really it's just for fun. I drive up and down California, mostly down to Dos Palos, sometimes to help out with the campaign to re-elect Mayor Montejano...yeah, my boyfriend's dad. I listen to their stories about the chaos going on there- it's all political. The threats to re-call the city council, the hostile neighbors, being followed by the corrupt police chief, the rumors, and Arthur's inability to go home from school sometimes because there's a billion t.v. news trucks outside his house. Fucking politics. Last weekend we really needed to be together and although at first is was hard being the clinically depressed girlfriend of the son of the mayor who's been going through a bunch of shit, we were okay. It was then that I realized that I wanted my life back and as long as I continue doing what I'm attempting to do, I'll eventually be okay. I don't have very many friends anymore, but that's okay because that just means that the people that are now will be there for a long long time. I'm fine with having a great family, a few close friends, a best friend, and the most amazing boyfriend I could have ever asked for. Maybe saying I'm happy would be the wrong word, maybe opimistic sounds better. There, I'm optimistic about the future and although it has only been 9 days, I know I can get through it. All I need to do is take it one day at a time, so far that strategy has been working. I always end up realizing something new. As a matter of fact, it was yesterday- well, more like this morning when I realized that I was in love. It's wonderful. It really is. :)
We went to a wedding down in Fresno yesterday. It was exciting getting to see him for the second weekend in a row.
