As Peach Union said, 'On My Own'

So, hrmmm... I've been puzzling over it all day and can't find an amusing or entertaining way of telling this story...

Somehow various recent chats with friends have helped me get a better picture of what I want out of life. This weekend I came to the conclusion that not only was I not happy, but I had the power to do something about it in an attempt to make myself happier. So Mr B------ and I have broken up and are going to work on our friendship instead. Back to Swinging Singleton* mode for srah.

Please take a moment to collect yourself - if you're as surprised as most of the people I've talked to, you've probably fallen off your chair. I'm frankly surprised at the numbers of people who are surprised. And they're probably surprised at me being surprised and I'm surprised at... okay, I'm ending this post now.

* If by "swinging" you mean "doing homework, finding an internship and avoiding romantic entanglements." Which I'm sure you do.

Well - I work from home, and also avoid romantic entanglements (not voluntarily - I seek them out and they avoid me). No need for internships though, as my student status finished what seems like several centuries ago (well - six years). I suppose that makes me a semi-swinging singleton.

Good luck.

Semi-pendulatory? I hope I made that word up. :)

That's the coolest new word I've seen you make up this week.

For me, swinging = "doing (or not doing) work, hoping to get into grad school, wasting numerous hours pretending I'm a Jedi, and avoiding romantic entanglements at ALL COSTS"

And by the way, I like that picture of you. It's cute. I like the hair.

The hair-cutting lady can't seem to reproduce it! >:(

Time for a new haircutting lady.

She's the one who cut it like this in the first place! Grrrrr...

I think you're doomed.
