a million miles per second (please don't let it stop!)

Whew!

Everything's been so crazy with me lately. Between work and my personal life (yes, now I actually do have a personal life!), I haven't had many opportunities to just sit back and take stock of everything.

Work is hectic now. Only recently, however. I had gone through a months-long spell when I was just aching for work challenges. Now, with a recent spell of rampant co-worker illnesses and the slight possibility of a promotion (of sorts), my work days are, thankfully, whizzing by, jam-packed. I find myself almost wanting to complain, but that would be ridiculous because the work is definitely a good thing.

What to say about my personal life? Things are going better than they ever have been. I have everything that I could possibly want or value in my life right now. Most importantly, I have the great fortune of hanging out with the coolest, funnest, most lovable guy on the planet.

Where, before, weekends were just a respite in-between work weeks, they now are full of new places and new excitements. I look forward to the weekends now more than anything else. But it's not just the weekends I'm enjoying.

Last night I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Erik at his house - grubbing on Baja Fresh, playing videogames (albeit, poorly), and watching Zoolander with him and his brother, Bryce. I skipped out on a rather enjoyable, yet surreal, open-house extravaganza at work consisting of an open bar, free food and psychic readings (!!) to hang out with him, and I don't regret the choice for one second.

I'm having so much fun I can hardly stand it. Too often, I let stupid crap get in the way of my feelings of well-being: a bill payment, an awkward phone call with a relative, a messy room, or even a bad morning of traffic. But not this time. I'm well-aware of how great being alive is right now, and I'm not gonna let that feeling get away from me anytime soon.
